Introduction To Vaporizers

So you're new to vaping and don't know where to start? You're not alone. Many people are completely overwhelmed when they first begin looking at all of the different styles and designs of vaporizers that the marketplace offers. What ends up happening to most newbies after a few hours of reading is they become paralyzed, unable to make any concrete decisions due to the endless sea of conflicting information that is out there on the internet. This guide aims to provide you with the knowledge necessary in order to make an accurate and responsible purchase through our online store so that you end up getting a product that is right for your particular situation. So let's get started first by breaking down vaporizers into three main categories: Portables, Pens, and Desktop vaporizers. We will highlight the categories separately and go into detail about each one individually so that you can get a good grasp of what they were designed to do and how their specific features will benefit you in your real life vaping experience.

Much like boiling water in a pot vaporizers work by turning your herbs into a warm, smooth steam like substance that is ready to inhale. By heating the herbal materials up at a lower temperature it enables the device to extract the active compounds without taking out the toxic byproducts that are produced with direct flame heating methods. There are two different types of vaporization methods: convection and conduction. Convection uses hot air to extract the compounds from the herb while conduction uses direct heat contact to gradually warm up the herbs until vapor is able to be released.

Portable Vaporizers
Portable vaporizers are handheld units that have rechargeable batteries and are great for taking with you on the go. Some people like to have a portable vape to take with them around the house, and some take them outside on the road with them when they travel. The good thing about portables is that the battery lasts up to 4 hours, and the herb chambers are relatively large so you can get a lot of vapor from just a single chamber. A portable might be right for you if:

  • You Travel Frequently
  • You Vape in Your Car
  • You Move Around the House a Lot

Many people love portables because they can be easily stored away in a pocket or handbag, not taking up too much space. Portable vaporizers are convenient, easy to use, and great for people who are constantly on the go. If you fit these characteristics then you should take a look at our Portable section and see what products interest you. Some recommendations that you can take a look at are our two all time best sellers with top customer reviews: the Arizer Solo and the Da Vinci Ascent.

Vape Pens
Vaporizer Pens are all the rage these days, and have become extremely popular in the vaporizer community within the past couple of years. To give you an idea, our store's vaporizer pen sales account for about 70% of our total products sold, which is a huge chunk! Vaporizer pens are so popular because they give you the ability to vape on the go, they are easy to conceal, and they also give you the option to vape oils and waxes as well. Oils and waxes are concentrated forms of plant material that offer a higher potency of active ingredients as oppossed to dry herbs, so keep that in mind when making your purchase.

The top benefits of vaporizer pens are:

  • Portable and Rechargeable
  • Easy To Use and Refill
  • Quickly Concealed and Hidden
  • Stylish and Compact
  • Ability To Vape Oils and Concentrates

If you want the ability to vape on the go and are also interested in oils and waxes, then a vaporizer pen is probably your best choice. Vaporizer pens have four basic styles and designs as follows: Dry Herb Pens, Oil Pens, Wax Pens, 3 in 1 Pens. The first three styles only handle one type of material, but there are 3 in 1 pens that have separate attachments for all three such as the Budy Pen Platinum Pro and the Skycloud Kandy Pens. Both of those pens are great sellers in our store and are a great choice if you are looking for a quality 3 in 1.

If you are looking to vape strictly dry herb with a pen then your best options are the all new Atmos Orbit TRUE Vaporizer or the Snoop Dogg G Pen by Grenco Science. They are our best selling dry herb pens and have been extremely well-received by customers in the vape community so far.

If you want to strictly vape oil with a pen then the best options are the Atmos OLE or the Atmos X Optimus 510.

If it's wax / concentrates that you are interested in vaping then the best options would be the Dr. Dabber Ghost Pen or the Cloud V Platinum vaporizer

Desktop Vaporizers
Desktop vaporizers are plug in, at-home units that are designed for serious vaping. These are the kind of vapes that you use at home with a group of friends, because they are more heavy duty and built to produce a large amount of vapor in a short period of time. Some of the most common benefits of desktop vaporizers when compared to the other styles are:

  • Ability to Serve Multiple UsersĀ 
  • Ability to Vape Continuously Without Overheating
  • More Durable and Long Lasting
  • Less Maintenance Needed
  • No Batteries Needed

A desktop vaporizer might be right for you if you are only looking to vape in one central location. A lot of users will own multiple types of vaporizers, for example: having a desktop for at home use and then a pen or portable to use on the go. A desktop unit is sort of your base, foundation unit, and probably the one that you want to get first if you are just getting started. Some good desktop vaporizers that perform well are the Hot Box Tile Vaporizer and the Silver Surfer Vaporizer. Both of them sell really well in our store and have many positive reviews from people throughout the vaping community.

By this time you should have a good idea about the three main types of vaporizers for sale: (Portables, Vaporizer Pens, and Desktop) and the three types of materials that they have been designed to use (Oil, Wax, and Dry Herb). You should now have enough information to make your decision. We have tried to help as much as possible by narrowing down your selection to weed vaporizers out that are the best selling, most popular units...but ultimately you will have to make the final purchasing decision.
