Vaporizers are fantastic devices, they use heating elements to take advantage of the various boiling points of the active ingredients in herb. They gradually evaporate the ingredients, allowing you to enjoy all of the effects of your herb without any of the toxins, tars, and carcinogens that are released with combustion. This is done in one of two main ways, conduction or convection. Conduction puts the herb indirect contact with the heating element, directly vaporizing it, much like how a kitchen hob works! This has the advantage of a quick heat up time, but unfortunately it has a high risk of combustion if used incorrectly. Combustion is the last thing you want from your vape. Thankfully there’s an alternative, convection!
Convection heating elements work by heating the air within the chamber of the vape and allowing it to flow over the herb within. As it flows over the herb it slowly heats it much in the same way a fan oven works. As the temperature rises the active ingredients within gradually evaporate into a thick and even vapor. This takes a little longer than conduction vaporizers, but the vapor quality is unparalleled. It is also eminently efficient, none of your herb is wasted during the vaporization process!
The flavour of the vapor produced during convection is the best you are going to get from a vape. The hot air in the chamber gradually releases vapor, preserving the delicate and distinctive taste of your herb, no other method of vaporization or combustion will give your this taste!
Since a convection vape uses flowing air to heat its herb the draw resistance is very low, so you can have a nice, relaxed session that isn’t akin to sucking a golf ball through a garden hose. Convection units also typically have more advanced and precise controls, which will allow you to take advantage of the boiling points of all of the individual active ingredients in herb. There are a whole array of active ingredients in herb, from THC to CBD, and with a selectable vaping temperature you can chose to ingest some while leaving others with higher boiling points behind!
