How Do Vaporizers Work?
Although cannabis vaporizers may come in an assortment of sizes, the majority of devices operate alike. The basic anatomy of a vaporizer consists of a chamber to place your product, typically dry flower is used, but some vaporizers can even process concentrates as well, making the device versatile for many uses. Next, your vaporizer will have either a mouthpiece, or if using a desktop version, the vaporizer will have an exit point for the vaporized cannabis to be collected in a bag or other container for inhalation.
Another handy feature that has become standard on many vaporizing devices is temperature controls. Depending on the brand, some handheld cannabis vaporizers have a few different temperature settings or even custom settings where you can control the exact degree you want to heat your cannabis to, further preserving terpenes that may be burnt off through standard combustion.
Cannabis vaporizers come in a variety of sizes, shapes, and even price ranges, but essentially all work on the same principle. Many are often either battery-powered or plugged into the wall for use, depending on the portability and design of the device. Some of the most common types of vapes are portable and desktop vaporizers. Just as their name implies, portable vapes are ideal for on the go and discreet use, whereas desktop units are best for at-home use, or in places where consuming cannabis is appropriate for consuming out in the open.
