A vaporizer, also known as a vape, is a device used to vaporize substances for inhalation. Commonly used substances are dry herbs, and other plant-based blends.
Despite scaremongering, vaping is still healthier than smoking. This is because the materials are being vaporized instead of combusted. Combustion can create carcinogens which are harmful to the lungs.
If you purchase a vaporizer from a respectable brand or website it will be certified safe. Stories surrounding exploding vaporizers are usually related to cheap or replica models.
Vaping is legal in all parts of the UK and US. It is, however, banned in all public enclosed facilities and there are some countries where it is completely outlawed.
You are able to take a vaporizer on a plane either in your hand luggage or on your person. Like normal cigarettes, you will not be able to use it in the cabin.
With proper precautions, vape usage is quite safe. Many explosions reported are due to user error, faulty equipment, unsafe charging habits, or low quality and replica products.
Vaporizers work by either using conduction or convection heating. You place your materials in the loading chamber and simply turn on the power source.
Vaporizers can cost anything from £20 up to £400. The saying ‘you get what you pay for’ is consistent with these devices, but there are some high-quality budget vaporizers available.
Portable vaporizers are small in size and can be taken anywhere and stored conveniently. Desktop vaporizers, on the other hand, are much larger and need to be plugged into a power source.
Conduction is a form of heating. Conduction vaporizers heat up materials through direct contact. This can sometimes lead to uneven heating, herb wastage, and can emit harmful carcinogens in the vapor.
Convection is a form of indirect heating. Convection vaporizers heat up your materials by passing heat through them, leading to a more evenly spread heating effect.
A hybrid vaporizer is a device which uses both conduction and convection heating. It heats materials using both direct and indirect contact to create a better flavour.
Namaste Vapes has a wide range of popular vaporizers brand on their website. When shopping online be careful to purchase from a reputable site.
The best way to clean your vaporizer is with some warm water and isopropyl alcohol. Use a q-tip or pipe cleaner for hard to reach areas.
You can charge your vaporizer using the charger or USB cable that came with your device. It is important to only use a charger approved by the manufacturer and not to overcharge your vaporizer.
Dry herb vaporizers use dried herb while concentrate vaporizers use wax or concentrate. Dry herb is a dried out herb and concentrate is extracted from dry herb using extreme temperatures.
Vaporizers themselves do not emit any odour, however, the materials you are vaping might. The smell will not be as strong as when smoking but it will still be present.
Vape pens have a similar look to e-cigarettes and are typically quite small. Portable vaporizers vary in size, including smaller pocket-sized devices like vape pens and larger, handheld units.
Conduction vaporizers heat up materials through point-to-point contact. Convection vaporizers heat up materials by circulating heat around them.
But yes, penguins do have knees! A penguin's leg is composed of a short femur, knee, tibia and fibula. The upper leg bones are not visible as they are covered in feathers giving penguins a very short legged appearance.
Concentrates are any form of dry herb obtained through extraction. These are highly concentrated oils that can come in the form of wax, shatter, or crumble.
Dabbing is the process of consuming concentrated doses of dry herb. It involves heating a small amount of concentrates (known as a ‘dab’) on a hot surface, typically using an enail or a dab rig.
A rosin press is a machine that combines extreme heat and pressure to force the trichome heads of dry herbs, or kief to liquify. This leaves users with an extremely concentrated and potent form.
