What is a vaporiser?

A herb vaporiser is an apparatus designed to heat herbs or concentrate. For vapers, it's a device used to vaporise cannabis. THC, a cannabinoid in cannabis when consumed gives a psychoactive or produces a 'high' effect.

Cannabis can be used recreationally or medicinally because it has a lot of health benefits.  Smoking and vaping are methods of extracting THC and other cannabinoids out of the herb.

Both of them provide an instant effect.Cannabinoids and the other compounds in the smoke are ingested through the lungs and any excess is released into the air.

Some people prefer smoking and some prefer vaping but it's best to  get these:

- A vaper's experience with a herb vaporiser is different from a smoker smoking a joint or pipe.

- Vaping does not burn herbs.

Cannabis vaporiser uses heat to vaporise THC without burning it; this means the temperatures in vaporising are lower, creating a smooth experience upon inhalation and reducing cannabis waste produced.

The most important difference between vaping and smoking is how clean the former feels.

So, let's get down to how a vaporiser works.

How does a vaporiser work?

A herb vaporiser operates on a battery-powered heating chamber to bring out heat. At the press of a button or sometimes, a simple inhalation, the heating chamber vaporises herb.

Usually, the heating element is ceramic, the herb is placed in the chamber, and this chamber can be made out of many materials. Some common materials used include stainless steel, glass and ceramic.

Heat makes the THC in the herb starts vaporising at around 100°C(230°F) The heating element can respond quickly when turned on that's why this temperature can be reached almost immediately.

How to choose a vaporiser

Consider the following questions when selecting a vaporiser::

  • What type of cannabis product will I use?
  • Where will I be using my vaporiser?
  • Do I want a vaporiser with lower maintenance, a single-use option or can I regularly clean a reusable one?

Benefits of using vaporisers 

Different types of cannabis vaporisers can be used for various purposes- from medical to recreational and some for religious ceremonies.

Using vaporiser apparatus is helpful for people that use cannabis for medicinal purposes because they efficiently deliver the medicine to the person using it. Vapourizer increases the amount of THC you get out of herb; it heats the herb efficiently.

Smokers are not liable to get much THC out of their herb as they would get from a vaporiser. This is because smoking herbs does not allow the THC to dissolve; instead, it burns it. This is the main reason why many consumers prefer vaporisers as an alternative to smoking.

Moreover, a herb vaporiser is free from many of the toxins found in smoke. This makes it healthier and safer than the methods used in smoking herb, fewer toxins will enter the body if someone inhales vapour instead of smoking it.

Herb vaporisers are not the same, but some are better at extracting THC from cannabis than others.You will know more about this as you read about various herb vaporisers and their unique quality.

How to care for your vaporiser

The cost of maintenance of your vaporiser varies by device. Some vape pens (Disposable), which are designed for single-use should be stored in a cool, dry place and stored upright (advisably in a case).

Avoid overcharging or depleting your battery as it can reduce the lifespan of your battery and also, lean the coil with a cotton swab and isopropyl alcohol.

Also, clean your pen's mouthpiece regularly, it can be soaked in alcohol and  If you're done with it, you can recycle it.

For a reusable vaporiser used for flower or concentrate, you'll need to clean it regularly. Soaking the non-electric component in isopropyl alcohol will keep your vapour tasting fresh and help decrease resin.

A reusable vaporiser should also be stored in a cool, dry place, where it can't be knocked to the ground.
