How to buy your first vaporizer

88 points

In today’s day and age, there are so many different products available on the marijuana market and it can get a bit confusing for someone who Is new to vaping or even just marijuana in general. In the past few years, technology has developed insanely quickly and is ever changing meaning that there are constantly new products available on the market for users to try out.

These technological advancements have also made it possible for an abundance of different vaporisers to have been produced. Many people are starting to look more towards using vaporizers rather than smoking a traditional joint for multiple different reasons but the most prominent one being the health benefits, or rather reduction of health risks.

If you are looking to buy your first vaporizer and need help understanding the differences between them, here are a few.

Dry herb vaporizers

Everyone knows that standard way of inhaling marijuana through a joint, but now people are trying to steer more in the direction of health and are wanting to avoid all of the harmful side effects of smoking. This is where vaping comes in. A great replacement for a regular old joint is the dry herb vaporizer. Essentially it is the same idea as a normal vaporizer, like the ones available at Smoke Cartel if you are not familiar with what it looks like, in that you inhale a vapour instead of smoke and it is easy to use as well as easy top transport and conceal. The difference comes in where you use the actual herb instead of a concentrate.

When it comes to dry herb vaporizers, there are two different kinds, these being session and on demand. A session vaporiser is one used when you want to smoke the entirety of the chamber in one session whereas an on demand one can be used throughout the day, whenever you need a little hit. There are two different kinds of heating methods to choose from when buying a dry her vape, conduction being one that heats the heard from a heated plate at the bottom and allows for the compounds to evaporate into vapour which is then inhaled, or convection which heats the herb to extreme temperature evenly throughout by circulating heated air through the chamber. This will also result in evaporation of compounds that are then inhaled.

Vape pens

Vape pens are by far the most popular and easiest products to find on the market. A vape pen, when used for marijuana consumption, will make use of a marijuana or THC concentrate in the form of a wax, oil, or juice which is heated to create a vapour that is then inhaled. Vape pens are extremely portable and so easy to use because they are the most basic of the products around. The biggest issue with vape pens is that you typically cant set the temperature to one that is ideal for you, and the battery life on a vape pen doesn’t tend to last very long so you will most likely have to charge it every day.

The biggest upside to vape pens is that they are very portable and discreet, and they can be used as regular vape pens for any nicotine products as well.

Desktop vaporizers

A desktop vaporizer is essentially the same as a regular vaporizer but it is much larger and works a lot better. The size of a desktop vaporizer means that it is not very easy to move around and is intended to stay in one place. These vaporizers also work a lot better than pones that are portable because they make use of a constant power supply and have to be plugged into an outlet. The size of these vaporizers has also allowed for more technology to have been included in them, meaning that you can easily control the temperature and choose one that is best sui8ted to you.


Just as the name suggest, this product resembles a cigarette. This is a great product for nicotine users for those wanting to try and slow down on smoking but still have the enjoyment and feel of it. These products are very basic in their capabilities and not very advanced but of you are looking for smoke something that still makes it look like you are smoking a cigarette, this is the perfect product for you.
