Vaporizers are used to vaporize active ingredients of different plant material or e-juices without combusting them. No combusting means that vaporizing is much healthier than traditional smoking.
How does a vaporizer work?
Vaporizers can work on 2 principles. Convective heating and conductive heating. For this reason, there are two groups: convection vaporizers and conduction vaporizers. The first group heats the air around or before the product in the chamber to a point where the compounds in the product start converting into vapor. The second group unlike the first heats a surface and then places the desired product into that surface.
In general, there is a big variety of existing types of vaporizers. They can differ by the style, shape or size. Except for convention and conduction vaporizers, we can allocate two other groups of vaporizers – portable and desktop. Portable vaporizers are suitable for those vapers who are used to the on-the-go style of life. You can take a portable vaporizer with you wherever you need. Desktop vaporizers in their turn are suitable for use at home. Usually, they have to be plugged in directly into a power source. Their main advantage is power and highest quality of vapor. In comparison to portable devices, they offer more power capabilities. They ensure longer vaping sessions. Also, you can share a desktop vaporizer with other people. Usually, portable vaporizers are less expensive than desktop.
In general, main benefits of vaporizers: stronger doses, more flavors, and less smoke. Vaporizers can convert approximately 46% of available THC to vapor, while the average is less than 25% of THC to smoke. Moreover, vaporizing ensures more subtle flavors that smoking. And the vapor produced by vaporizer usually disappears within a few seconds without leaving a lot of smell.
There are the third category users should be aware, the first generation of vaporizers which are combusting leaves. It’s not really vaporizer, however, multiple shops are selling them as vaporizers. We would recommend starting with other options but if you’re after the cheapest alternative or something what could resist the wind it might be a good option to consider.
Among best-selling models of vaporizers are Pax, Arizer Extreme Q, The Grasshopper, Plenty and others. Keep in mind your preferences to choose a suitable vaporizer.
