The vaporization of active ingredients from plant material using a so-called vaporizer is a great alternative to conventional inhalation, sometimes extremely unhealthy combustion products from classic smoking. Simply as a replacement for the classic sports cigarette or for inhaling medicinally effective components of medicinal plants such as sage, valerian, hops, hemp and many more, modern vaporizers make aromatherapy an unsurpassable pleasure.
The devices are quite rightly enjoying increasing popularity and are now available in a hardly manageable variety of models. Stationary or designed for mobile use, the various technologies offer the right device for every application and also make no compromises in terms of design and user-friendliness.
When buying a vaporizer, you shouldn't save at the wrong end, because quality makes a huge difference. So cheaper devices usually work with only conduction, i.e. the heat transfer through the contact of the material with heatable elements of the herb chamber. This technology has the disadvantage that undesirable burns can quickly occur and the steam is somehow smoke again.
Higher quality vaporizers combine the advantages of conduction and convection in one system, so that the active ingredients are also released by heated air in addition to the heated chamber. This ensures a more even heat distribution in the material used, which results in a denser vapor and helps to avoid undesired combustion with the appropriate temperature almost entirely.
