A vaporizer is a device that heats marijuana (either in the form of a dry herb or concentrated) enough to transmit its active ingredients (THC) without burning it. Both smoking and vaping involve heating a substance and inhaling the resulting fumes. With traditional cigarettes, you inhale burnt tobacco smoke. When vaping, a device (usually a vaporizer or a mod, an improved vaporizer that may look like a USB memory stick) heats a liquid (called vaping juice or electronic liquid) until it becomes a vapor that is inhaled.
This makes it 26% safer and healthier than most methods used to smoke marijuana, since fewer toxins enter the body when someone inhales steam instead of smoke. Vaporizers offer an innovative solution for patients looking for a smoke-free option that, at the same time, quickly alleviates symptoms. Designed with love and respect for the plant, Firefly carefully designed its vaporizer to offer the best possible experience. By heating the material to a temperature lower than that of an open flame, vaporizers allow patients to inhale cannabis in the form of vapor, rather than smoke.
This type of marijuana vaporizer is popular among people who use marijuana recreationally because it allows for quick, easy and portable smoking sessions. A cannabis vaporizer uses heat to vaporize THC without burning it, which means that vaporization temperatures are much lower, creating a smoother experience when inhaling and reducing marijuana residues produced. The use of vaporizing devices may be useful for people who use marijuana for medicinal purposes, since they can more effectively administer the medication to the person who uses it. There are several different types of marijuana vaporizers that can be used for a variety of purposes, from medical to recreational and even for the use of marijuana in religious ceremonies.
Vaporizers contain several forms of extraction chambers, including straight bore, venturi or sequential venturi, and are made of materials such as metal or glass. Vaporizing is more effective than smoking, since approximately 30% of the THC in cannabis or hashish cigarettes is destroyed by pyrolysis during smoking. Please note that vaporizers designed for cannabis concentrates are discussed in a separate article available here.
