Fun Facts Avout Vaporizers
Still consuming your herb by smoking it? If so, you should consider making the switch to a vaporizer. The advent of modern-day technology has the paved the way for some groundbreaking new ways to consume herb. And while you may "think" you know everything there is to know about vaporizers, we have some rather surprising facts listed in this post.
Fact #1) You Can Reuse Your Herb
Wouldn't it be great if you could use the same herb multiple times? With a vaporizer, you can. Once you've vaped a batch of herb, save the remains for a later time. Assuming there's still some color left (i.e. it's not brown), you can either vape it a second time or use it to make butter, brownies, cookies, etc. This is in stark contrast to smoking, which only allows a single use for your herb. This reason alone is enough for many people to make the switch from smoking to vaping, but the benefits don't end there.
Fact #2) There are Different Heating Methods
Vaporizers offer two different heating methods: convection and conduction. Conduction involves heating herb by passing heat through it, whereas convection uses a direct heating element to vaporize the herb. While both methods are effective at producing clean, high-quality vapor, they each have their own advantages and disadvantages. Conduction, for instance, tends to deliver a more even vape since the heat is equally distributed throughout the herb, but convection vaporizers are easier to use and usually cost less than their counterpart.

Fact #3) Vaporizers Don't Produce Smoke
Although it may look like vaporizers produce smoke, it's actually a plum of mist-like vapor. Smoke is created when herb -- or any material for that matter -- is heated to a high enough temperature. Vaporizers, on the other hand, work by heating herb just enough to create a mist-like vapor; therefore, you can enjoy all of the active compounds in your herb without the harmful effects of toxic, carcinogenic-filled smoke.
It's important to note, however, that you must find the right temperature to achieve a smooth vape without creating smoke as a byproduct.
Fact #4) Higher THC Levels
You might be surprised to learn that vaporizers deliver high levels of THC when used in conjunction with marijuana. When you light a bowl or rolled cigarette, the fire literally burns some of the cannabionoids (THC included). This isn't a problem with vaporizes, though, since they release THC without burning it.
