When you're new to the world of vaping, deciding which is the best vaporizer for your needs can seem daunting. Fortunately, you can make the decision rather easily if you take a smart approach. Just follow these three steps to get the perfect vaporizer for your needs.
Three Main Options for Vaping:
Dry Herbs - are dry blends of either herbs or tobacco. They should typically be ground before use for best results.
Wax and Oils - Oils and waxes are often used for aromatherapy, but can also be used for vaping.
Combinations - Combination models give you the flexibility to vape with blends, oils or waxes. Often times, an additional attachment or accessory is needed to add the oil/wax vaping capability.
Deciding Portable or Desktop Vaporizer:
Where do you want to vape?
If you only plan to enjoy your legal dry herb blends at home, a Desktop Vaporizer that plugs into a wall outlet might be the perfect choice. Most vaping enthusiasts agree that desktop models are more powerful and capable of producing thicker vapor.
If you want to be able to use your vaporizer while on the go, you'll want to choose a Portable Vaporizer. These vaporizers are lighter in weight than desktop models and smaller in size for easy carrying. In addition, they can be operated without being plugged into a wall, eliminating the need for a cord.
Battery-powered vaporizers are the most efficient portable models. Many of these models use rechargeable batteries and must be plugged in periodically as a result. Other models use disposable batteries.
Flame vaporizers are heated with an ordinary lighter. While very simple and usually inexpensive, they may produce thinner vapor and are less efficient than other types.
Butane vaporizers are heated with butane, the same fluid found in lighters. With this type, you will need to fill the butane on a regular basis to be able to vape.
Whip vaporizers use a small device that consists of a glass wand, silicone or vinyl tubing and a mouthpiece to pull the vapor out of the vaporizer.
Balloon or bag vaporizers transfer the vapor to a bag or balloon that gradually inflates. Then, you can inhale directly from the balloon or bag at your leisure. This style of vaporizer is the most popular for group vaping.
Dual vaporizers give you the flexibility to fill a balloon or bag or use a whip.
