You heard about a device called “a vaporizer”, sounds like a weapon that turns your enemies into vapor, right ? Well yeah, can’t argue with that, but no we are not there yet. A Vaporizer is a device that heats up the material but I doesn’t burn it, uses an atomizer to creates gas that carries particles through the mouthpiece and to your lungs. The great thing about a vaporizer is that it doesn’t burn the material, so you are not inhaling tar or other toxic by-products that damage your lungs and are a primary cause of lung cancer. Here we will talk about a portable vaporizer, mainly a wax pen also called a dab pen and a herb vaporizer, both fall into the Vape Pen category.
Also called a weed vaporizer is a portable device that heats up the herb to around 300 degrees and the gase that is produced is inhaled. Since it’s a portable vaporizer it means that it’s battery powered. When you get one from a Vaporizer store, you also receive a charger with a USB cable, so you can charge the battery with an adapter from a wall outlet, a laptop or even a power bank. The other two parts are the main body that houses the heater, the atomizer and the storage area also referred to as “the oven” where you put the herbs and a mouthpeice.
Before using the Vape Pen you need to charge the batter if the LED is not green, while it’s charging you should take the time to prepare the herbs. Sort out the moist parts and if there are any moldy parts you best throw them away as they will ruin your experience. You’ll need to grind the herbs in a nice and even size, this can be done by a tool called grinder. There are different shapes and sizes and materials grinders are made of, find one that suits your needs.
After the battery is full and the herbs are prepared you put the herbs in the “oven” and attach the mouthpeice. If you are using a Buttonless Vape Pen, then just inhale and enjoy. If using a Push Button Vape Pen, u’ll need to press the power on button five times to power the device on and then inhale. This is pretty much it, simple and elegant solution for a better way of consuming herb vapors.
Wax Pen / Dab Pen
Also a portable Vape Pen, powered with a battery, with one key difference. A Dab Pen uses wax instead of dry herbs. The principle is the same, you have the battery that you need to recharge, you have the heater and atomizer, the storage (the “oven”) area and the mouthpeice. This is the principle at which the vaporizers function. The difference is that wax needs higher temperature so the device could produce vapor, that’s all there is. Some vaporizers come with the ability to vaporize both herbs and waxes but that is reflected in the price.
Depending on your needs and lifestyle you can choose a herb or a wax pen or if unsure one pen to rule them all, a two in one herb and wax vaporizer.
