Weed vaporizer: Comparison of the different models of Vapos

The use of tobacco in joints is a bad habit with many people. Most of them do not know that the nicotine and other toxic products contained in tobacco have a real impact on their health and especially their "high". There are alternatives to tobacco especially if your mission is to quit smoking! Buying a vaporizer can be a solution but it can be confusing at times, it is a sad reality but don't let it put you off. The first thing to understand is that there are 3 main categories of vaporizers and as a bonus have told you which is the best vaporizer around.

Vaporization: convection / conduction VS Combustion

The difference of it's 2 process lies in the heating temperature. The temperature control of your vaporizer is fundamental for an optimum use, in fact each cannabinoid has its own vaporization temperature typically between 160–185 ° C. The vaporization allows to obtain a soft smoke and full of pure flavors at the end of the nozzle.

The combustion process begins above 220-230 ° C. This phenomenon generates a heavy and thick smoke, often hot and potentially dangerous for your respiratory system, because it contains in particular many tars.

Consuming by vaporization has a number of advantages on the one hand for your health, you prevent toxic products from entering your body, you fully enjoy the effects and in the end it is good for your wallet. The effects of spraying depend on the quality of the product you are using, but they are usually more dense and cerebral. Note: a study conducted at the end of 2018 showed that vaping cannabis produces a more potent high compared to that of the combustion seal.

Vaporization is less harmful to health than smoke induced by combustion

The reaction of extracting active ingredients is diametrically different between vaporizing and smoking. The vaporization gently heats your product (hash or cannabis) which allows a perfect extraction of the cannabinoids present. The steam extracted by this process is healthier and purer, as the temperature is controllable and remains below 230 ° C.

Combustion and tobacco are not good for your health, this process results in many chemical residues like carbon monoxide, tar, acetone, ammonia, hydrogen cyanide and other toxins contained in tobacco. All of these chemical compounds are toxic and known to be highly carcinogenic!

Originally, vaporizers were meant to be "placed on the table" because they were large and heavy. They are called fixed models. Today vapes weigh only a few grams and can be transported easily.

The vaporizer models have evolved in terms of format, you can find a good number basic, these devices are around a hundred euros. On the other hand, there are very sophisticated machines, true condensed technologies with for example color screens, intelligent heating system connected to the Bluetooth of your phone. It is easy to understand that therefore the prices of these top-of-the-range machines tend to be around 350 euros or more.

To help you in choosing a vaporizer purchase, here is a comparison of the main benefits of this mode of consumption.
