A vaporizer is a device used to release the active ingredients of material, plant or essence, as well as it can work to release the therapeutic compounds of said substance.
In fact, today vaporizers have taken quite a bit of relevance in the global market because they are a “healthy” alternative compared to the consumption of tobacco or cigarettes, not for less, many people when they want to quit smoking, resort to these kinds of alternatives.
How does a vaporizer work?
Vaporizers heat the material or plant in question to a lower temperature than which a cigarette or joint burns, in this way, the active principles, main properties and essential oils of said material or plant produce an aromatic vapor (not to be confused with smoke).
This is clearly much more advantageous, since burning the plant or the material can carry out different chemical sub-processes that end up being harmful to health, on the other hand, the steam contains zero harmful particles.
What materials can I use for my vaper?
Cannabis and vapers
Cannabis is one of the most common substances used in vapers, you just have to make sure that the one you plan to buy has support for this type of plant.
It is quite beneficial since a better flavor can be obtained by using the vaporizer, since the flavor of the marijuana that we are vaporizing can be perceived, especially at low temperatures.
Usually, these components with percentages of cannabis have a high sensitivity. Through the administration of cannabinoids, terpenes, etc. through smoke, more than half of these compounds are burned before you even take your first hit from the joint. The combustion of the bud between puffs ends with another 15-20% of the substances that interest us.
Since the temperatures used in vaporization are much lower, and often much more precise, not only are the active compounds preserved, they are also fully utilized. Therefore, the cannabis vapor will be cleaner and purer in its content, which means that vaping can save you money in the long term.
Vape juice, eliquid or ejuice
Scented liquids are one of the most common substances for vapers, and the “healthiest” ones, are also known as a vape juice, e-liquid or e-juice.
Liquid is what produces vapor when inhaled. You can choose from several alternatives based on the percentage of nicotine present in them and the flavors available. The different levels can be used if you are looking to reduce or quit nicotine addiction.
Typically, each smoker requires experimenting with the degree of nicotine that is used, sometimes a nicotine level that is too high can produce effects such as dizziness and headache, while too low a level causes inhaling too much and for long periods of the personal vaporizer.
The main ingredient of the vaporizing liquid is propylene glycol (or Propylene Glycol), it also contains or may contain flavorings, vegetable glycerin and nicotine, although it can also be obtained without nicotine and based on only vegetable glycerin, even liquid without flavoring can be used.
Is a vaporizer worth it?
We would say yes, but it depends. The experience is pleasant and much better for our body compared to smoking. We can feel rich flavors, be discreet and make the use of or marijuana much more efficient. As always, this kind of opinion is very subjective.
