What is vaping?

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.

How Does Vaping Dry Herbs Work?

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.

Vape Pen Conduction Heating

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.

Vape Pen Convection Heating

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.

The Benefits of Vaping over Traditional Smoking Methods:


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.

Vaporizer Pens are Discreet

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.

Cost Effective

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.

Heightened Effects

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.

How to Choose A Portable Vaporizer Pen

Consider Location

If you only ever smoke at home, a table vape may be the best option for you. Table vapes are larger and pack a much bigger punch when it comes to vapor production. If you often smoke on the go or prefer something a little smaller, a portable vape pen should be your go to. These portable and clean little machines are perfect for use in public because they are discrete and can fit in any pocket or purse.

What You Smoke

Wax Pens, Oil Vapes, Dry Herb Vaporizers are all built differently and are not interchangeable. However, there are some multipurpose vape pens that can handle herb, wax and oil with one device. Granted. With that said, you will likely need multiple vape coils or cartridges specifically meant for each. Do NOT use dry herbs in a chamber that has already been used for wax and vise versa. This will result in a messy, gunked up, less effective vape. Simply purchase a new chamber to keep things clean and working correctly.

Vape Pen Size

Just like how people have a preference for just about everything, everyone has a preference when it comes to the vaporizer pen, which includes the size. At NY Vape Shop we offer a wide range of vape pen sizes ensuring that something can be found for every style.

Vape Pen Style

We believe style should never be compromised. Most of our best-selling vape pens come in multiple colors and patterns that will match anyone’s aesthetic. Even better, if you don’t like the solid color/pattern look, you can purchase each component separately to mix and match colors and patterns. Just imagine: you can have a vaporizer pen in the colors of your favorite college or sports team!
