If you’re like most people, you probably think of vaporizers as just electronic cigarettes. While they are similar in that they both deliver nicotine through vapor, some allow you to consume cannabis, and there are a few key differences between them. Vaporizers, such as those from Grasscity’s selection (seen here), are devices that heat the material to the point of vaporization. This vapor can then be inhaled, providing several potential benefits over traditional smoking methods.
While they have been around for some time, there are still many people who do not know much about them. In this blog post, we will discuss five facts about vaporizers that you may not have known. Keep reading to learn more!
The Weed isn’t Burned
The first thing that many people aren’t aware of is that these devices don’t burn the weed. This is why they are called vaporizers, otherwise, it would be the same thing as smoking. What happens is something called convection heating. This is when hot air has circulated the cannabis, heating it and cooking it.
There are of course conduction vaporizers that kind of burn the cannabis, but these devices are becoming less and less common.
The High is Different
This brings us to the second fact; the high is different when using a vaporizer compared to traditional methods of smoking. The reason for this isn’t exactly clear yet, since the same amount of THC is being consumed.
How does it differ? Well, using a dry herb vaporizer will give you a more mellow high, whilst still feeling euphoric, whereas smoking leads to more intense effects. The other difference is that a high from vaping will last longer compared to a high from smoking.
Apps can Control Your Device
As you may know, you can pretty much find an app to control almost any device these days, and this isn’t anything different with dry herb vaporizers. Granted, not all of them have apps just yet, but it will be a reality soon.
The devices that do allow you to choose a precise temperature, how long a puff is, how much vapor can be pulled, and more. These options allow you to have the perfect session.
Desktop Vaporizers are the Best for Parties
In case you were under the impression that all dry herb vaporizers are the same size and are all made for portability, this isn’t the case. There are different types, such as the desktop vaporizer, which is primarily used for parties.
Think about it, smoking weed at a party can get kind of messy, especially with all of the grinding involved. However, desktop vaporizers eliminate most of the mess that’s created since the chamber is big enough to fill once and satisfy everyone.
It’s Healthier than Smoking
Another fact that people aren’t aware of is that a device like this is a much healthier alternative compared to smoking. This is because when you smoke, you use combustion as a heating method, which activates many toxins and harmful carcinogens which are then inhaled.
Dry herb vaporizers avoid creating these toxins and carcinogens since they don’t burn the cannabis, as mentioned above.
The Smell Doesn’t Linger
If you were to think of smoking cannabis, the first thing that would come to mind would probably be the smell. Unfortunately, when you smoke cannabis, it does create a very potent smell that lingers for quite a while. This isn’t great if you are trying to smoke discreetly.
Dry herb vaporizers on the other hand don’t create a smell that lingers. The primary reason for this is because smoke is heavy and thick, and attaches to clothing, furniture, the walls, and more. The vapor that is created by a device like this dissipates within 30 minutes, so no one will know you even smoked.
You Still Have to Grind
Finally, many people are under the impression that you can just fill the chamber without actually grinding the marijuana first. Unfortunately, this isn’t the case, and you will still need to grind the marijuana.
This is particularly important if you are still using a conduction-based vaporizer since large chunks of cannabis might not vaporize evenly, and if not cleaned, will ruin your next session.
Vaporizers come in all shapes and sizes
They really do come in all shapes and sizes, making it easy to find one that meets your specific needs. Whether you want a portable device that you can use on the go, or a more powerful option for home use, there is a cannabis vaporizer out there for you. There are desktop vaporizers, portable ones, vape cartridges and vape pens. Each has its own benefits and drawbacks.
Vaporizers can be used to consume a variety of substances
Did you know that there are a variety of substances that vaporizers can be used to consume? Some are meant for concentrates while others are designed to vape flower. What they all have in common, is that they provide a cleaner, healthier alternative to smoking.
Whether you’re a first time cannabis user or an experienced smoker, this makes them a versatile choice for you or anyone who wants to enjoy different types of vapors. So, if you’re thinking about purchasing a cannabis vaporizer, be sure to research the different types that are available. You may be surprised at what you find.
There are a variety of benefits to using vaporizers
There are a variety of benefits to using these devices, many of which people might not be aware of. For one, they don’t produce any smoke, so they are much healthier than smoking cigarettes or cigars. They also come in a variety of styles and sizes, so there is sure to be one that fits your needs.
Additionally, using a vaporizer is a great way to conserve your herb since it produces potent vapor without burning the material. So if you’re looking for a healthy, convenient, and affordable way to consume your herbs, then this is definitely the way to go.
