Vaporizers have revolutionized the budding cannabis industry as well as the well established tobacco industry.
Here at VapeFuse we focus mostly on cannabis vaporizing, however it is inevitable to cross into tobacco vaping territory at times.
If you are new to vaporizing (also referred to as “vaping”), the first concept to get your head around is how different materials are vaporized.
– Liquid vaporizers: Vaporizing liquids is the easiest in terms of technology. Liquid vaporizing have been popularized by devices known as ‘e-cigarettes’. There are many type of liquid vaporizers, from JUUL style pods to 510 thread pens and mods and many others. Liquid vaporizers are also used to vape oils such as CBD or THC oil.
– Wax vaporizers: Another category of vaporizers are devices specifically made for waxy substances, such as cannabis concentrates. Vaporizing these substances is quite a lot more complicated than vaporizing liquids as far as technology is concerned.
– Herbal vaporizers: Herbal vapes heat herbal matter, such as ground cannabis leafs to extract the active ingredients from the herbs in vapor form. We love herbal vaporizing here at VapeFuse as this is the most natural way of vaporizing cannabis.
In this video, Matt from the VapeFuse Team explains the basics about liquid vaporizing, wax and herbal vaporizing.
This is one of the first things to get your head around when you are learning about vaporizing.
Liquid and Wax vaporizers are a lot more self explanatory than herbal vapes.
Heating a liquid or waxy substances will vaporize at a certain temperature.
However with herbal vapes, you have to create vapor out of a solid matter. This requires a fair a bit of technology to make it happen. Herbal vaporizers heat the herbs up to approximately 190 Celsius (374°F). At this temperature, the active ingredients of the plant evaporate in vapor form.
There are two main ways how herbal vaporizers heat the herbs up. Let’s dive into those next.
