What is a vaporizer

What is a vaporizer?
A vaporizer is a device that evaporates herbs, oil or wax. It releases the active components into an aromatic vapor. There is no combustion of the herbs so there is no smoke but a slight vapor. With a vaporizer you do not get the thick smoke that you're used of smoking a cigarette or joint. The big advantage of a vaporizer is that the vapor does not contain toxic components such as tar, benzene, toluene, naphthalene etc. Therefore vaporizers are commonly used as a healthy alternative to smoking herbs.

What is the difference between smoke and vapor?
When burning herbs there is a release of harmful substances which harm your health. You will lose a lot of the active ingredients when you burn your favorite herbs. A vaporizer will not burn your favorite herb but evaporate (vape) this. Through a hot air circulation through the plant material vaporizers vaporizes the active ingredients of the herb. This leaves an aromatic and spicy vapor on which you can inhale through different methods. Once you vaporized the herbs you will see that the herbs are not burned to ashes. This makes it quite easy to keep clean a vaporizer.
