Vaporizing is a popular form of smoking, regardless of the substance you choose to burn. Not only has it allowed for many people to move away from chemically laced cigarettes which pose a plethora of health risks, but it has opened the doors to an entirely new and exciting experience when smoking marijuana. If you are new to the idea of vaporizing, here is a very simple and straightforward breakdown of the different vaporizers and how they are best used.
Pen vaporizers are the most compact type of unit that features a battery operated coil that initiates at the push of a button. These devices are intended for use with oils and concentrates simply due to the fact that combustion takes place within the chamber. Although many people do attempt to vape with dried plant material, the ash and debris can significantly damage the device. Not to mention, it is a fire and burn hazard if the chamber is heavily packed.
Desktop vaporizers are somewhat large and cumbersome, but definitely offer a powerful experience that is versatile and can be somewhat customized to meet individual preferences. With a variety of attachments and the ability to burn raw bud, desktop units are great for the at-home smoker who doesn’t mind being tied down with an electrical cord. These devices utilize convection heat to vaporize the material being smoked.
Portable vaporizers often get mixed up with the pen style, but they are very different. These generally feature a separate chamber which can utilize convection or conduction, but ultimately, the substance does not rest directly on an exposed heating coil. Portable vaporizers are much more convenient in size for carrying in a pocket or purse, but still offer a customizable experience in the sense that users can adjust various settings to achieve their personal preferences.
Vaping is a great way to experience the physical and emotional benefits of marijuana, and luckily, users can choose from a variety of different vaporizer devices to meet their individual needs.
Although the cannabis plant is comprised of several different chemical constituents, the two most popular and interesting aspects of this magical plant continue to be cannabidiol (CBD) and tetrahydrocannabinol (THC). From a scientific standpoint, understanding the medicinal potential of these components is a vital piece of the puzzle when it comes to the argument of legalization.
Most people are familiar with term THC, but very few people are probably aware of CBD. This is likely due to the frequent opposition that media outlets convey. THC is the cannabinoid responsible for producing the high sensation that is often associated with marijuana use. The mild psychedelic effects are typically short lived due to the fact that THC has a temporary and weak binding affinity to certain cannabinoid receptors (CB1) in the brain.
Unlike THC, CBD binds to a completely different cannabinoid receptor (CB2) and is not associated with a high feeling whatsoever. Researchers have found that cannabinoid receptors exist throughout the nervous system as well as other organs like the liver, fat tissue, and even muscle. The continued exploration of this receptor system has been groundbreaking for the proponents of marijuana. Although there is still much to be discovered about how cannabinoids work, the evidence is clear that certain aspects of marijuana have incredibly promising potential for treating a plethora of diseases and ailments.
In fact, the ability for CBD to make drastic improvements to certain diseases is shown by the frequent production and prescription of Epidiolex for specific epileptic patients. If you are a proponent of marijuana use and the legalization across the nation, it is necessary to be informed and educated about its chemical composition. Understanding exactly how the components of this plant work can make or break your argument for or against this substance. Don’t make yourself look or sound stupid by presenting a lackluster argument that isn’t backed by facts.
Unless you have been leaving in a cave for the last five years you are sure to of seen these portable ecigs and vaporizer pens. The first time you witnessed the act of public vaporizing you may of been confused and shocked as to what is going on. The technology is actually really simple and can be put together for a cheap price in places such as China, but is cheap alway the best option? When it comes to electronics the answer is normally no. But with prices starting from just £30 for a budget vaporizer pen I would say it is ay be worth the gamble.
The idea behind the vaporizer pen is to enable the user to medicate in public without causing smell or suspicion. You can find some really stealthy designs for sale such as the popular inhaler styled types or mini pens. There are multiple online shops that these can be found at, both branded and unbranded.
While these vapes are ideal, cost effective and super convenient there is a slight drawback for the more seasoned users. In comparison, the high received from vaporizing is around one quarter the strength of smoking. This is because vaporizing marijuana only uses the THC and not the other components such as CBDs. The high given from vaporization is much lighter and is more of a head high than a full body one. To put is simply, vaporizing will not give you a couch lock high.
But, there is hope! Concentration vaporization is new to the market but gives a much stronger high than herbs. More on that to come.
