Best Vaporizers 2017 for Marijuana and Dry Herb

various herb vaporizersVaporizers are a modern and healthy way to smoke. In a vaporizer, the tobacco or the herbs are not burned but heated until the active ingredients are released.

This is an entirely new development because for thousands of years people inhaled the ingredients mainly by burning tobacco or herbs. With the smoke produced by this combustion, however, the desired stimulants are not the only ones that enter into our respiratory system. Indeed, as it has been found in numerous studies in recent years, a large part of the components is harmful to our health. These include tar substances, carbon monoxide, and heavy metals. The problem is exacerbated by the fact that many users of home-made cigarettes smoke without a filter.

With a vaporizer, the herb, the oil or extract in the vaporization chamber is vaporized in a much cleaner way, and there is no combustion which produces that large part of harmful substances in the smoke.

This relatively clean combustion process has many advantages. The lungs suffer less, the aging effect of smoking is reduced, as are the adverse effects on dental health. The usual morning cough disappears, and the lungs can breathe again.

Also, you avoid the negative impact of smoking on your home or your room. Fewer people will complain about the smoke and the process of vaporizing itself is more comfortable to hide. Especially with new small vaporizers like the DaVinci IQ. Those who like to smoke at home will be happy that their apartment doesn’t get the yellowish tint that often makes a home renovation necessary.

What is a Vape capable of?

Once you have decided to buy a Vape, you should ask yourself: Which materials am I going to use? Can I just put tobacco or herbs in my Vape?

The most straightforward answer is that you can vaporize any plant. It may make sense to grind the material with a grinder so that it can be packed as close as possible to the heating chamber of the vaporizer. In order to enhance the aroma of the vapor, it is also possible to position the herbs that are not chopped up in the vapor path.

Apart from the plants, oil vaporizers are also offered. Oils contain the active ingredient in a concentrated form without the other constituents of the herb.

If you don’t like liquids in your vaporizer, you can use the so-called waxes. These are produced using butane gas and contain the active ingredient in high concentrations.

The importance of temperature control

The temperature is important because it depends on the correct temperature whether the active ingredient to be inhaled is vaporized or whether the material starts to burn. Of course, you want to avoid burning the material; otherwise, you can smoke a joint. The THC contained in the marijuana has an evaporating temperature of 157°C which slightly increases in the vaporizer due to the higher pressure in the chamber. This is why most evaporators work with temperatures between 180°C and 200°C, optimized for the evaporation of THC and most other active ingredients. Since not all vaporizers have a temperature control, it is important to see if a vaporizer matches the temperature that you want for your herbs, and especially when using oil or wax, which often have a slightly higher boiling temperature.

Another important aspect is that the active ingredient is consumed in the herb during vaporization. In order to inhale the same amount of active ingredient continuously, you can increase the temperature over time.

Conduction or convection heating?

Two heating mechanisms are used for vaporizers: conduction heating and convection heating. Convection heating separates the heating of the air from the Vape material. The heated air rises from the oven into the chamber with the herb and makes the active ingredient vaporized gently and with low levels of pollutants. Conduction heating poses heating and the active ingredient in the same chamber, in direct contact. In the latter there is a possible danger of partial burning of the herb and few pollutants can be present in the vapor cloud.

As you can see, convection heating seems to be advantageous. However, it has two disadvantages: more space is needed and the price of the vaporizer increases. Nevertheless, a convection vaporizer should be chosen whenever it is possible.

Power for your vaporizer

The energy supply for the vaporizer depends first of all on whether you use a table vaporizer or a portable device. Most larger vaporizers for home use work with power supply through the AC outlet. Portable devices have either an integrated rechargeable battery and must be charged after use or have replaceable batteries. The latter are preferable, as several replaceable batteries make it much more flexible to use and the vaporizer can be used even if the spare batteries are in the charger. Some vaporizers work well also when charged and the low-tech version even allows operation without electricity and heating with a lighter.

Material quality

To obtain a healthy vapor cloud it is important to pay attention to the materials used. In order to avoid absorbing unhealthy components of the vaporizer within cloud, it is important to ensure that materials such as glass, ceramics and pure titanium are used. Titanium and other metal alloys, as well as plastic and aluminum, should be avoided.

Top 5 of portable vaporizers

The choice of vaporizers is extensive. For this reason, we have put together a Top 5 portable vaporizers for an optimal vaping experience:

Pax 3 vaporizer

pax 3 vaporizerThe Pax 3 gets excellent marks for the material. Only medically safe materials have been used, and they significantly reduce the health risk compared to cheaper vaporizers. Variable temperature, fast warm-up time (15 seconds) and handy control with smartphone application contribute to the positive overall picture. One disadvantage is the conduction oven, which is often used in portable vaporizers due to space constraints.

The Pax 3 is offered for about 240 pounds and we can recommend it as a whole because of good material quality and temperature control that far outweigh the disadvantages of the conduction chamber.

DaVinci IQ

davinci iqThe DaVinci IQ impresses with its good material quality and manageability. It is one of the smallest vaporizers on the market. With the handiness also comes a conduction oven. However, due to the vast temperature range and the Smartpath technology that defines a program for the temperature development during the vaporization session, this does not have a significant influence on the quality of the vapor cloud.

With about 260 pounds, the IQ is in the higher price segment but offers many extras and new features.

Vapium Summit+

vapium summit+The Vapium Summit is, according to the manufacturer, a vaporizer that you can bring with you on mountaineering or other expeditions to inhospitable areas. It works without problems for temperatures from -30°C to 80°C. During the test, it was, first of all, determined that the closure of the heating chamber with a small magnet is quite weak. This is a problem that the manufacturer also noticed, so a rubber band to improve the closure also comes with the vaporizer. Apart from that, the Summit+ is really suitable for outdoor use. Dust and splash guard is so robust that you can use this vaporizer even in the shower.

With the price around 150 pounds, the Vapium Summit+ is a niche product made for people who travel a lot outdoors.

3 vaporizers under 50 pounds

If you want to buy very low-cost vapes, you can also find vaporizers for less than 50 pounds. Here are three vaporizers that are recommended at this price.

Vaponic

So not everyone has to see that you carry a vaporizer with you.
