Top 5 Reasons Why Vaporizers are the Connoisseurs’ No. 1 Choice

Who knew vaporizers could be the most coveted way to get that ultimate high with your favorite botanicals? For evidence of their all-time popularity, look no further than what we’ve rounded up below. 

Zero Combustion: Vaporizers are Healthy, Neat and Clean

Granted, the effect of smoking pot is as immediate and as potent as vaporizing dry cannabis herbs. But while it is generally safer to smoke marijuana than tobacco, vaporizing offers a big leap in terms of safety and overall health. Vaporizers go not burn your botanicals; their heating elements only get hot enough (no more than 230 degrees Celsius) to vaporize the active ingredients in the plant materials, but not too hot to burn them.

The result? Pure, clean and equally potent flavors that offer maximum health benefits — minus the toxic chemicals regularly formed when burning plant materials. In addition, the absence of combustion means that the cannabinoids and other compounds do not undergo radical chemical reactions. Hence, inhaling them in their pure form.

As if these advantages are not enough, here’s the added bonus: No more unnecessary rolling of paper, no fire hazards, no smelly smoke and less mess around. With vaporizers, just plug them in and off you go to vaporland.

With Vaporizers, You’ll Instantly Know Your Dosage

Want some instant therapeutic effects of cannabis? Don’t eat it. Vaporize it!

The longstanding issue surrounding eating marijuana-infused cookies, candies and even desserts is the latency of the cannabinoids’ effects. On average, it takes about one to three hours for the body to digest and introduce these orally ingested compounds into the bloodstream.

Hence, one common danger is that the individual continues to eat whatever volume of food he or she can, only to be rushed to the emergency room hours later because of high dosage of THC. In other words, you’ll never know what you’re getting until it hits you a little later.

Vaporizing, on the other hand, directly introduces the therapeutic compound into the respiratory system, which in turn quickly absorbs and transfers these into our system. And the entire process only takes three to 10 minutes. So, you’ll immediately know if you need more of your materials, and of course, you’ll know when to stop.

Thus, vaporizing marijuana is the healthiest, quickest way to get your vaping pleasure. And you won’t even have to worry about those calories from the candies, cookies or brownies anymore!

Vaporizers Produce Less Odors

While the smell of marijuana that wafts in the room depends on the quality of the herb you use, the temperature and the way the vapors are diffused by the vape, the odor produced when vaporizing your materials is definitely significantly subtler than smoke produced when smoking pot.

One explanation focuses on the absence of combustion, which would otherwise result in a strong smell of smoke and the aromatic organics coming from applying intense heat to the plant materials. With vaporizing, combustion is absent, so the smell would easily dissipate especially in a well-ventilated area.

If you still mind even just the smallest hint of cannabis in the room, direct a fan toward an open window while vaping to disperse the vapors effectively.

Many Vaporizers Can Double As Aromatherapy Devices

Who says vaporizers are mere vaping devices intended to get you high? Portable vaporizers like the Arizer Solo (when purchased with a glass bowl) can double as an aromatherapy device. Just fill the device with a choice of your ground aromatic flowers, remove the glass mouthpiece and replace it with the glass bowl. Or, if you have your essential oils ready, place a few drops into a small cotton ball and place it the chamber to let the heat diffuse the oil effectively.

Aromatherapy vaporizers prove really useful when wanting to neutralize any strong odors in your room. So, instead of spraying aerosols and artificial air fresheners, just go all-natural with these aromatherapy/vaping devices. One desktop vaporizer that’s also a popular aromatherapy device is the Arizer Extreme Q.

Vaporizers Can Support All Materials: from Dry Herbs to Concentrates

Smoking joints will always be, well, smoking joints. Hence, you need vaporizers that support oils, waxes and other forms of concentrates if you happen to be into these more potent forms of cannabis.

The good thing about some vaporizers such as the Atmos Jewel, DaVinci Vaporizer, Atmos R2, and the desktop Volcano vaporizer is that they are designed to support both dry herb materials and concentrates. That’s good news for those who would rather experiment on or jump to different vaping materials for a more diverse experience.

In other words, the possibilities are just endless. And by the way, did you know that you could also use the Volcano vaporizer to infuse flavors into your dishes and drinks? Yes, aromatherapy goes gastronomic, big time!
