A vaporizer is a device that generates a particular substance in the form of vapor, especially for medicinal inhalation. Vaporizers are commonly used as a healthier alternative to smoking, as vaporizers heat cannabinoids to their boiling temperature before inhalation, as opposed to combusting the material with smoking. Vaporizing exposes less carcinogens to the lungs, making for a healthier way to medicate.
Currently there are two different types of vaporizers for cannabis users: herbal vaporizers and concentrate vaporizers. Both can come either as plug in or portable models, making this an accessible and convenient way to use cannabis.
