ABOUT CANNABIS

Cannabis, also known as marijuana among other names, is widely known for its psychoactive properties through a main compound known as Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC). Amongst hundreds of other cannabinoids within cannabis, another main compound known for its non-psychoactive properties is called Cannabidiol (CBD). 

The key differences between THC and CBD are: 

Extracted from the “Sativa” family 

Psychoactive, euphoric 

Sought out for its capability to give you a “high” 

Recreational market focus

WHAT IS A HERBAL VAPORIZER?

Herbal vaporizers are used to heat dry herb and/or concentrates to their vaporization point. Each vaporizer may specialize in heating dry herb, wax, oil or a combination of the three. The objective of a vaporizer is to heat and extract all of the desired cannabinoids from the material without any harmful carcinogens from combustion and provide a variety of benefits.

WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF USING A HERBAL VAPORIZER? 

Vaping cannabis is absent of the carcinogens found in combustion 

Long-term savings 

There is almost no residual odor 

A discreet method of consumption 

Less throat and lung irritation 

 

CONDUCTION VS. CONVECTION

Conduction refers to using direct contact with a heat source to bring the cannabis to its ideal vaporization temperature. An electronically heated surface (usually a metal plate or a screen) directs the heat throughout the device’s chamber and the vaporizer converts the cannabinoids and terpenes into vapor. 

PROS

Often used in smaller devices

Closer to the feeling of smoking

Quick heat-up times

Produces denser vapor

CONS

Can emit a small cannabis odor if temperature is too high

Dry herb requires a finer grind

Material can overcook while the device is idle

Slight risk of combustion

May be harsher on the throat

Convection refers to using heated air that passes over the cannabis to bring it to its ideal vaporization temperature. The cannabis product itself never comes into direct contact with the heating element. Instead, the vaporizer uses hot air to extract the cannabinoids and terpenes, which can then be inhaled in vapor form.

PROS

Less odor

No stirring required

Allows for more even heating

Less likely to overcook when idle

Will never reach level of combustion

CONS

Typically only found in larger devices

Usually slower heat-up times

Drains battery life quicker

True convection technology may be expensive

Which method is better?

While both have their pros & cons, conduction style devices are more commonly found. Preference depends on the user and how they like to enjoy their vaping experiences.

TYPES OF HERBAL VAPORIZERS:

Pen-style vaporizers offer unbeatable portability and discretion at affordable prices, with minimal maintenance. Although they don’t offer the same versatility as portable and desktop devices, they are much easier and convenient to use. 

 Portable vaporizers offer the perfect balance between the portability of a pen-style device and the performance/ versatility of a desktop device. 

 Desktop vaporizers offer, hands down, the best performance and versatility, if you are not looking for portability. These are also the most expensive of the three main types of devices.
