Vaporizers cook cannabis, rather than burning it. This means that you avoid the production of smoke and its other toxic elements. The cannabis is heated just short of the point of combustion, which means that the cannabis is heated up enough to release the THC and other cannabinoids and these are evaporated into a thin mist (vapour) that you then inhale. The plant matter is browned, rather than burned.

There are different types of vaporizers out there but most devices on the market are in the form of convection vaporizers. These heat the air within the vaporizer via a hot element or heat exchanger and then the hot air is forced through the plant material, either by the users’ lung power or an inbuilt fan.

Other types are conduction vaporizers and these work via direct contact of the heating element and your cannabis. This means of vaporization tends to vaporize less evenly than a convection vaporizer but is primarily used for more compact, portable devices.

Some vaporizers can use bags to capture the vapour and some use accessories known as whips or stems, which are simply mouthpieces for a direct draw from the device. You can also attach a bong or bubbler to some vaporizers which adds an extra layer of filtration, which removes trace amounts of dust for a smoother hit.

There is a lot of choice out there, so our vaporizer reviews are here to help you get the best bang for your buck.
