What does a Vaporizer or Vaporiser do?

in Ingredient

The Vaporizer a new and innovative method to extract active ingredients from herbs without burning them. Historically people have been burning their herb in a cigarette like fashion. What was generally not understood, is that a flame is too hot to effectively extract most active molecules. The top of the cigarette or the flame itself is around 400 degrees Celsius. Everything in and around the flame just gets oxidised and all the mono oxide of carbon, dioxide of carbon and tar go straight into your lungs. It is the active molecules that sit about half to one centimetre behind the flame that are actually delivered to the lungs. Which renders this method of smoking rather ineffective as compared to a vaporiser. Studies have found that about 23% - 27% of the active ingredient are extracted this way, while most of it is just combusted and destroyed. 

 

The Vaporiser has a slightly different way of extracting the active ingredients in the herb. A Vaporizer heats the herb to the exact temperature required to vaporize the active ingredient without oxidizing any of the matter. Every herb has an active ingredient. Every Active ingredient has a vaporization temperature. This is the temperature at which that specific active ingredient vaporizes; turns from solid into gas or vapour. Since the vaporiser's temperature is relatively low, the vapour is cooler which allows for smoother inhalation. Cooler Vapour will do less harm to the air pathways than hot smoke. Also since the active ingredients are not wasted through combustion, the process is much more efficient. According to some research extraction through a vaporiser is as effective as up to 92%. This means that a vaporizer are much more efficient and potent than other methods of extraction and will save on herb in the long term.

 

There are two types of vaporizers; Stationary and portable vaporisers. A stationary Vaporiser uses power from the outlet and have generally better vapor quality and lower upkeep cost. In comparison a portable vaporizer uses butane or a battery to provide portability but generally can't provide the vapor quality that stationary Units can provide. The major brands are the Volcano, Arizer, Iolite and Magic Flight Launch Box. But there are many more. Each Vaporizer is good at some things while being less suitable in other aspects. It is best to do your research and find out which vaporiser is the best companion to you.
