Everybody is familiar with the hype regarding how bad smoking is for your lungs and general health. Of course, that doesn’t stop people from doing it. In recent years, however, a rise in popularity has been seen with a product that could replace the act of smoking and still provide the same feeling or benefits people look for when smoking a cigarette. They’ve become so popular, in fact, that you’ve probably heard of them once or twice if you haven’t already used or seen one already. We’re talking about the vaporizer.
What Is a Vaporizer?
Vaporizers, commonly known as vapes, are little devices that produce vapor instead of smoke. This means you’re still getting the same thing out of the same materials, just without the smoke. The device does this by burning the plant material at a lower temperature than what would be involved in lighting a cigarette, which means that the active compounds within the material simply produce a vapor instead of a smoke. By doing this, you end up with the same effects, but the vapor has no particulate matter and a much smaller amount of noxious gases.
Types of Vaporizers
There are many different styles of vaporizer devices that people might choose to use. The most popular styles are portable or handheld, but there are still many people who prefer other styles that may sit on a surface instead. Desktop vaporizers include whip style, forced air, or hybrid devices that use both. “Whip style” uses a rubber tube to pull heat over the plant matter that is being vaporized. Forced air, on the other hand, uses a fan inside the device to fill balloons up with the vapor.
As mentioned, portable vaporizer devices are much more popular than ones that require to be kept at home and used on a surface. There are two styles: the pen and the simple portable vaporizer. Of the two, the vape pen is far more popular. The pen is most popular, because just like the name suggests, looks like a normal pen, so it is very discreet; it is also quick to use, which is great for when you’re on-the-go.
With that said, somebody looking for a small, portable, and discrete device might also choose to go with a mini vaporizer. These vaporizer devices are similar to the other portable vaporizers, but the mini vape comes with a small tank to hold more material. They are all very small and can easily fit into any bag, purse, or even pocket. There are also different kinds of mini vapes to consider for different needs or preferences.
How to Know if a Mini Vape is for You
Mini vapes might be extremely convenient, but they may not be for everybody. Mini vapes are best for people who are frequently out of the house and on-the-go, especially if you pack lightly and don’t carry much around with you while you’re out. Because mini vapes are also typically less expensive, they’re good for people who are on a budget or are only just starting to think about starting vaping. Mini vapes might also be the most similar experience to smoking a cigarette, so people who are in the process of quitting might do better with those devices.
