Very simply, vaping is the insertion of material into a vaporizer chamber and heating it sufficiently to vaporize rather than burn the material. By heating plant material to its boiling temperature, instead of burning, a vaporizer dehydrates herbal material and causes the material to release its essential ingredients without catching fire.
Vaporizing herbal products allows you to enjoy all of the benefits of your herbal material of choice, medicinal or otherwise, without burning paper and filling your lungs with tar and other obnoxious chemicals.
Ideally, only safe, known, identifiable, and legal products or blends should be used in a vaporizer.
Additional benefits include:
Convenience: Many new vaporizer models are small and simple to use.
Discretion: The aroma produced by vaporized plant material is milder and dissipates more quickly than when smoked.
Flavor: Low-temperature heating is effective at activating terpenes within the plant material, bringing out pleasant flavors that might go unnoticed when smoking.
Flexibility: Vaporizers designed for dry herb can be used to consume a variety of different plants.
Controlling Dose: Vaporizers allow for carefully controlled doses by taking small inhalations.
Vaporizers and dry herb should be kept out of the reach of children and animals. This information, together with product instructions accompanying your vaporizer should be reviewed before its use.
