Vaporization releases the active elements of marijuana, THC, without any burning. A technology that has been evolving for well over two decades, today’s vaporizers use convection technology to release just enough heat and air to release the vital chemicals of weed.
Unlike using a lighter to smoke marijuana, which creates combustion at a temperature of approximately 2000 degrees F, vaporization does not change the chemical structure of marijuana, and the smoker does not inhale tar and other toxic elements caused by the combustion process.
Marijuana contains cannabinoids, particularly THC, which is what gets you high. When heated to a threshold temperature of approximately 375 degrees F, the cannabinoids detach from the plant and vaporize into a thin mist that the user can safely inhale.
This mist is not smoke and will taste cleaner, cooler, and smoother than any kind of combustion-made smoke. In addition, twice as many active constituents are delivered to the user by using vaporization due to the delicate nature of cannabinoids and their tendency to be easily destroyed at temperatures over 400 degrees F.
Because there is no smoke, there is little to no smell, and many people can vaporize in public without being detected. Also, because you can hit the same “bowl” of weed several times, your marijuana will last longer and provide more hits per gram. Both your lungs and your wallet win when using a vaporizer!
