Vaping is a smokeless, portable, and discrete method of consuming dry herbs, wax concentrates, oils, and e-liquids. Whether you call it a Vaporizer, Vape Pen or Pen, vaping involves heating vape coils or chambers and the vape pen contents inside. They are heated just enough to release vapor but not smoke. Vaporizer pens are have bridged technology with smoking and removed the need for a lighter.
Portable Vaporizer Pens work by heating dry herbs to the point of releasing vapor, but not to the point of combustion where smoke is released, allowing you to capture the desired effects without the harmful toxins that come with traditional smoking. Vaporizer Pens use two methods of heating: conduction and convection.
Conductive heating works by placing the vaping contents directly onto a metal surface, most often a solid plate, coil or screen. The metal element is then heated to an ideal vaporization temperature, directing heat throughout the chamber and converting the chambers content into vapor for smooth inhalation.
With convection heating, the vaping contents do not actually come in contact with a heating element. Instead, the vaporizer pen produces hot air, and once the air has reached the ideal temperature, it is moved by either a fan or inhalation to the segment of the vape containing the vaping content, heating it and converting it into vapor without charring the substance.
When it comes to dry herb vaporizer pens, vaping reduces the number of carcinogens you introduce to your body compared to traditional combustion smoking because it does not cause combustion. When herbs are burnt with a flame or hot coil the chemical composition is denatured and more carcinogens are produced than if gently heated with a vaporizer pen.
While vaping with a pen vs a bong does not remove all odors from dry herbs, it does severely reduce the smell and smoke, making it perfect for public use like during concerts and outdoor festivals.
While vaping a vaporizer pen does require an initial investment, it will save you money in the long-term because you will be able to receive the same physical and psychological results from smaller amounts of your favorite dry herbs, wax concentrates, and oils.
Vaping is cleaner, healthier and less wasteful than traditional smoking methods, so it’s not surprising that when you remove the excess substances, you’ll experience heightened effects from your favorite vaping materials. Also, wax pens are popular for handling wax concentrates, a derivative of dry herbs that is essentially a concentrated form of the herb. Wax Pens require a small dab of wax to deliver robust vapor clouds.
