Intro to Vaporizers
Vaporizers are devices that people use to vaporize the active ingredients of plant material. The most commonly vaped plants are cannabis and tobacco. Tobacco obviously being a big draw for e-cig users who are looking for a slightly healthier method to get their nicotine fix. But more and more we are seeing new companies and a rapidly growing consumer base in the cannabis industry looking for a healthier method to take their THC cannabis or CBD products.
A vaporizer is a electronic device that consists of a battery, electrical components, an oven, and a heating element. There are many different types of vaporizers, both portable and desktop and come in all shapes and sizes. We will touch on all these different types of vaporizers in the next section. Vaporizers are designed to turn the ingredients of a substance into vapor and through inhaling will enter into your body. Vaporizers heat your material at a heat temperature that is lower than that of combustion. By not using a flame, you are severely lowering the amount of harmful tar and carcinogens that may otherwise enter into your body. The lower heat level is a much more efficient extraction process of plant ingredients and helps to remove the harmful effects of smoking and also second hand smoke.
Vaporizers are becoming a more popular personal device as seen by tremendous growth in the portable vaporizer industry. With people all over the world making the switch from cigarettes to e-cigarettes, and also from joints, pipes and bongs to dry herb and concentrate vaporizers this makes for a large user base wanting a new age product. Even more so people are starting to experiment with and utilize the other less known compounds in cannabis plants such as Cannabinoids (CBD). CBD is the second most found chemical compound in hemp. You can read more on CBD here.
Types of Vaporizers
Depending on a persons purpose of why they want to use a vaporizer will determine the type of vaporizer required. The most popular types of vaporizers are dry herb vaporizers, concentrate vaporizers, and liquid vaporizers. Vaporizers come in all shapes and sizes and the price range varies from $10 portable disposable vapes to $600 premium desktop vaporizers.
Complete vaporizers (multi purpose vaporizers) - Also known as 3 in 1 vaporizers, these devices are designed to be able to vape all 3 mediums of material which include dry herbs, concentrates, and e-liquids. 3 in 1 vaporizers are (complete vaporizers) are a great product for a few reasons. You are able to travel a lot light and you only require 1 device instead one for each desired medium you intend on vaping. 3 in 1 vaporizers are very handy to have and can keep your vaping hobby more interesting by allowing you to explore more options. As 3 in 1 vaporizers become more developed they are improving at being optimized for all 3 mediums. Currently most are better at vaping a specific medium and only operate mediocre at the other two.

Dry herb vaporizers - as the name implies dry herb vaporizers are designed to vape only dry herb materials. This is the plant leaf itself that you are able to place in the vaporizers oven and turn the active ingredients into vapor. Dry herb vaporizers are currently the most popular type of cannabis vaporizer being purchased. Vaporizers that are designed to vape just one or two mediums currently are regarded as being more optimized for those mediums that say a 3 in 1 vaporizer that is trying to make itself diverse enough to vape a mediums in one device.
Concentrate vaporizers - Concentrate vaporizers are designed to vape extracts such as Butane Hash Oil (BHO), wax concentrates, butter or budder, shatter or a sort of umbrella term for more solid concentrates 'dabs'. Concentrates are much more potent than dry herbs and contain a higher level of THC. Depending on your concentrate and where the industries go you may also use non THC concentrates such as more refined CBD concentrates that have a higher level of cannabinoids.
E-liquid vaporizers - The e-liquid vaporizer category is one that will continue to evolve and is currently experiencing some culture changes around the world. In the UK for example e-liquid vaporizers are very popular in the form of regulated box mods, mechanical box mods, and tank systems. These are widely used for vape enthusiasts who like to produce big clouds, perform vapor cloud tricks, and often contain a percentage of nicotine in the e-juice. In North America for example e-liquid vaporizers are growing as a result to the demand in CBD liquids and THC e-liquids. Both nicotine e-liquid vaporizers and THC/CBD e-liquid vaporizers are growing rapidly and many new devices are being manufactured to meet this high demand. We will touch on some of the best e-liquid vaporizers in the vaporizer product review section below.
CBD vaporizer - CBD vaporizers are one of the newest types of portable vaporizers and as of recently companies are beginning to sell very affordable and re-usable portable vaporizers that come with pre filled CBD oil cartridges. CBD is a compound found in hemp that does not make you high, this is to say that the heavier psychoactive ingredients that exist in THC do not exist in high traces in CBD products. CBD products are able to deliver the benefits of a hemp plant while being able to keep your mind un-altered.

New portable e-nails allow you to use devices such as a bubbler/bong and works as a 'vaporizer bowl' in a way.
