1.What is a vaporizer?
A vaporizer is a device which heats up dried herbs to a temperature at which they release their (medically) active components into an aromatic vapor. This vapor doesn’t contain any of the toxic elements found in smoke.
2.Is it difficult to use a vaporizer?
Generally not, but this depends on the type of vaporizer. For some models emptying and refilling the herb chamber or cleaning the vaporizer might be a bit bothersome. One must always be careful, as the heating element and the filling chamber can get very (very!) hot.
3.The vapor makes me cough. Is there something I can do to prevent this?
It is likely that you’re vaporizing at a temperature too high. Though it can be nice to inhale very concentrated white vapor (because of the strong effect), it is difficult to keep this in the lungs. Lower the temperature and the coughing will likely cease.
4. Where can I buy a vaporizer?
Vaporizers can be bought in local head shops or smart shops, or online. See our buy vaporizers page for reliable vendors in Europe and the United States.
