Vaporizers and Your Health

What is a vaporizer?


A vaporizer is a healthier alternative to smoking. Vaporizers heat material at a much lower temperature when compared to smoking, so that the active compounds contained in the plant material produce an aromatic vapor (instead of smoke).

Burning plant material can produce numerous harmful by-products. A vaporizer produces vapor which contains virtually zero particulate matter and significantly reduces noxious gases.

By avoiding combustion (smoke), the user is able to achieve the same desired effects without the harmful side-effects of smoking.

What is the perfect temperature for vaporization?



It really depends on the vaporizer. However, the optimum temperature range for most vaporizers is somewhere within 335 to 385 degrees Fahrenheit.

Why am I not seeing any smoke from my vaporizer?

There shouldn’t be any smoke, you’re vaporizing! The whole idea of vaporizing is to avoid the dangerous effects of smoking. You should, however, see a light cloud of white vapor when you exhale. How much vapor you see depends on your vaporizing temperature. Higher temperatures will produce denser vapor, whereas lower temperatures will produce less visible vapor.

Is there a smell associated with vaporizing?

There is a slight smell that is released upon exhaling (comparable to lightly burnt popcorn), but it’s very mild when compared to smoking.

What’s the difference between Conduction and Convection?



With Conduction vaporization, your blend is placed in direct contact with the heating source.

On the other hand, Convection vaporization occurs when hot air passes over the blend, but never actually touches the heating element/source.
