    What is a vaporizer?

    A vaporizer is used to heat up herbs to the point when it releases its active components and produces vapor. The advantage over burning herbs is, that the material is not combusted and hence no smoke is produced and the generated vapor does not contain toxic particles like tar, naftalene, toluene benzene and so on, making the inhaling of the vapor much less hazard to the health of the user.
    Incensing implies burning and carbonization, while smoking comprises combustion of the herbs. Both methods of producing smoke create serious amounts of unhealthy byproducts of a toxic nature, including tar (solid particles) and nitric oxide (gas). All those byproducts are injurious and irritating to the throat, mouth and lungs. Furthermore, burning of the herbs destroys a large portion of the active compounds, which, in fact, means smoking herbs is way less effective than vaporizing.

    A vaporizer utilizes a hot air flow to extract the active compounds from plant material, and the created vapor is ideally tar free. This process does not burn the herb. Hence there is no ash after vaporizing; the remaining material only lost its color and aroma and thus a vaporizer is easy to clean - simply empty out the herb chamber and you're done. This process is called convection and avoids direct contact of the herb and a heat source, preventing burning of the material.
    Safe and Clean Medium
    When compared to the smoke and residue of their combusted contemporaries, the level of irritants and health-endangering substances generated by vaporized plant materials is either nonexistent, or greatly reduced, depending on the particular component.

    Yields More
    While the combustion of an herb via smoke expends its "payload" all in one go, a vaporizer can triple, or even quadruple, the lifetime of the same herb by allowing the user to portion out its usage.

    In addition to vaporizers serving as a less hazardous method of enjoying the user's herb of choice, herbal blends designed with vaporizers in mind can be offered in a higher level of concentration and greater aromatic density that what would be provided for combustion methods.

    Most of the aromas of trees and plants, which we perceive as pleasant, are produced by ephemeral oils. The smell of pine when walking through a forest or the odor of lavender is exuded by the trees and flowers and is nothing else but ethereal oils. Not only are those oils pleasing our olfactory sense, they have measurable effects on our well-being and health. Lavender for example has a calming effect and enhances sleep. In ancient Persia, Greece and Rome it was used as a disinfectant for infirmaries.

    Essential oils of jasmine, cannabis, lemon balm, rose, eucalyptus, rosemary, chamomile, sage and thyme have a long history of use in perfumes and fragrance mixtures and are known for their positive effects on both mind and body.

    A vaporizer is used to detach the active components of recreational or medicinal herbs for inhalation. Inhaling vapor has an immediate effect and is more efficient and much cleaner, hence healthier, than smoking and/or incensing.

    PORTABLE VS. DESKTOP VAPORIZERS
    Most quality vaporizers are not intended for outdoor use or use on the go, because they depend on electricity and are relatively big. For this purpose, smaller glass vaporizers are much more suitable. These smaller vaporizers aren't necessarily of lower quality, but are more vulnerable because the material from which they are made of, and refilling and cleaning can be more tricky.
    Although vaporization of medicinal plant materials has been performed for centuries, it has been applied to cannabis only in recent times.

    Re: What is a vaporizer?

    Thanks for the comprehensive explanation. I tried lots of different vaping devices, and came to conclusion that vaporizers are the most advanced and comfortable, as they can boast with longer battery life and bigger power (I prefer this one for cbd vape https://gypsyvapes.com/stiiizy-biiig-starter-kit ).

    They're a healthier alternative for your lungs:
    While igniting dry herb or concentrates does effectively release their active compounds, the effects of combustion causes significant damage to the respiratory system. By producing a clean pure vapor, rather than smoke, vaporizers are easier on your lungs
