One of the coolest things about using a vape is all of the tricks that can be performed with the vapor that is created by your vaporizer. Since the hits from a vape are thicker and have the cloud-like effect that smoke does not provide, the tricks are much more impressive than smoke tricks. There are many tricks that can be done, from simple Rings to more complicated tricks like The Jellyfish or The Lasso. Typically, these tricks are done with e-juice and a box mod rather than vaporizers that use concentrates or dry herbs. Read this article to learn about all the different vape tricks you can do.
The main difference between smoke and vapor is how they are created. To get vapor, hot air is blasted onto the dry herb, allowing the compounds in the plant to evaporate and turn into the vapor that you inhale. Smoke happens when the heating element comes in direct contact with the herb. This burns the material, thus creating the smoke that you inhale. While this is a very fast ingestion method, there are some negatives to smoking rather than vaping. One of the hottest trends going on right now is vaping. Today we are going to break down how vaporizers work and take a closer look at some of the key benefits, in addition to the difference between smoke and vapor.
Most dry herb vapes are considered convection vaporizers. This means they bake the herbs at a temperature just high enough to release vapor without burning the herb. Because there is no combustion, this is a healthier alternative to smoking. However, this article highlights another type of dry herb vaporizer, a combustion vape. This is basically just an electronic way to smoke herbs. The heating element has direct contact with the herbs, burning them just like a lighter would. This is still slightly healthier than using a lighter as you are not inhaling any butane vapor. However, combustion vapes create smoke just like you would get from a pipe. Read this article to learn more about herb vapes that produce smoke instead of vapor.
Vaping has gained a lot of momentum in recent years as an alternative to smoking. Vaporizing heats dry herbs, oils, waxes or other concentrates to a high enough temperature to get them to turn to an inhalable vapor but not so high that the substance combusts or burns. Smoke caused by combustion contains many carcinogens not present in vapor. Additionally, vaporizing provides a cleaner taste so you can fully enjoy the flavor of dry herbs, oils and wax concentrates. There are many types of vaporizers designed for different purposes. We will go into more depth on the types of dry herb vaporizers and how vaping dry herbs differs from smoking them.
