Vaporize Weed


Vaporizers On Sale

If you answered yes to any of these questions and do not have a vaporizer, then please follow along with me and let me tell you about this amazing process. For years, I was an avid marijuana smoker and I thought there wasn’t much wrong with it. Often we, as people, don’t look for better solutions if we already have one that’s working for us. Smoking definitely worked for me, so why did I need to look for a reason to mix it up?

That all changed when my girlfriend bought me a vaporizer for my birthday a couple years back. When I saw it, I looked at her and thought, “Uh, what is this and why would I want it? Smoking is fine for me.” Luckily, she was smarter than I was and knew I would benefit from it. I started using it, and I was immediately hooked. There is nothing like taking your first huge vaped hit and not coughing AT ALL afterwards. I didn’t realize how much the smoke really irritated me until it was no longer there.

Now, there is absolutely no way I would ever go back to it. To be honest, the idea of smoking now seems almost prehistoric for me as vaporization is the master of THC delivery.

Keep Your Lungs Healthy

The most damaging aspect of marijuana is lung damage due to smoke. When marijuana is combusted, it releases THC into the air, but it also releases hundreds of toxic chemicals as well which are also inhaled. Some of these toxins are even known carcinogens.

The other harmful factor has to do with the temperature at which smoke is inhaled. Because the combustion temperature is so much higher than the evaporating temperature of THC, naturally the breathed in matter is much hotter. This creates painful lung inflammation, redness, and swelling inside the respiratory system.

Vaporization fixes both of these dangerous issues. By only heating the organic matter to the appropriate temperature needed to release THC into the air, toxins are all but eliminated and heat is kept to an absolute minimum.

The Effects of Weed Network also has additional articles written regarding the effects of weed on the lungs.

Medicate in Privacy

Another key benefit of vaporization over smoking is the strength of smell. As stated before, smoking causes marijuana to burn releasing hundreds of toxins and oils into the air. The fumigation of these chemicals and essential oils is what gives marijuana its strong and distinct smell.

Because the only goal of vaporization is to release THC, virtually all of the odor-causing agents inside marijuana remain within the plant and are never put into the air. THC by itself is odorless, it is the other components of marijuana that give off the powerful odor. If discretion is of major concern to you, vaporization is definitely a convenient solution.

Prevent Unnecessary Sickness

One thing I personally noticed when I smoked marijuana is that I got sick more often and it lasted much longer. Whereas before I smoked I might have gotten sick once a year, when I started heavy use I was becoming sick 3-5 times a year. Not only that, instead of the typical 1-3 days of sickness, I was getting hit for at least a week at a time with debilitating symptoms. I attribute this primarily to the irritation, mucus buildup, and inflammation caused by the abusive smoke.

Since I started vaporizing, it has gone back to the normal sickness once a year and I am over it quickly. When I started vaping, I didn’t realize this was going to be one of the benefits. However, if I had known, this benefit would have been enough to sell me on vaporization by itself. Being sick sucks!

 More Green For Your Green

Smoking is a highly inefficient technique for THC delivery. The THC content in marijuana smoke is typically around 10-15% with the rest being mostly harmful substances that your lungs will surely hate you for.

Compare that to vaporization which provides air with a THC content of 80-90% or even more. It is an extremely efficient technique. On top of that, the rest of the air content is benign towards your lungs, so holding in hits is much easier and allows for better THC absorption.

What does this mean for you in the end? It means that you will be getting more effective highs with less marijuana. In the end, an investment into a vaporizer pays for itself simply by using marijuana more efficiently meaning less needs to be used for the desired effect.

Get Your Own Vaporizer and You Won’t Look Back

I spend a significant amount of time in researching for this site and determining what the effects of weed are to anyone who uses. Through this discovery, there is no doubt in my mind that smoking is the most prevalent danger caused by marijuana. This is actually very good news because smoke is completely preventable through vaporization.

There are many several reasons that vaporization is a superior method to enjoy marijuana, each of which gives enough reason to purchase a vaporizer. However, put them all together and it is a no brainer.

If you want to learn more about vaporization and start looking for your very own vaporizer, visit any of the links to our vaporization partner, Vape World. This is where I purchased my vaporizers (I have 3 now), so I can personally vouch for their effectiveness. My hope is that if you read this far, you will take this information seriously and come to the same conclusion I did years ago that smoking is only for dummies who don’t know any better!

So if you are convinced that you need a vaporizer for its health benefits, privacy, efficiency, money savings, or all of the above, but you aren’t sure which one to get, I will share my views on the 3 models I own: the Iolite, the Vapir, and the Volcano.

Iolite – Key Benefits: Size and Portability.

The Iolite is smaller than the size of my hand, and is easily taken wherever I go discreetly. This was actually the first vaporizer I ever owned, and it was what got me hooked on vaporizing. It runs purely on butane, no need for batteries or anything like that. Like most vaporizers, it takes some time to warm up, but after temperature is set, it can easily provide 1-2 hours of THC pleasure. The Iolite also comes in a variety of colors and looks awesome.

Vapir – Key Benefits: Portability and Control.

The Vapir is slightly larger than the Iolite, but it still makes for a great portable solution. The key differences between the 2 is that the Vapir is battery operated and allows the user to control the temperature. This is unlike the Iolite which runs at only one (though still effective) temperature. If customization is important, the Vapir is the winner here.

Volcano – Key Benefits: Efficiency and Delivery.

The Volcano is the mother of all vaporizers. It is the most technologically-advanced, finely-engineered vaporizer I have ever come in contact with and probably in the entire market of vaporizers as well. The absolute best thing about the Volcano is its efficiency. Compare a typical of smoked marijuana, which can last about 2-3 hours for me, to the Volcano where a single bowl can keep delivering all day. Because it is so efficient in its delivery, all of the THC hits you effectively meaning nothing is wasted as opposed to the 80% of waste that comes from smoking. The volcano pays for itself in just a few months for a daily user as they will be restocking on marijuana half as often, if not less.

The other awesome thing is the bag delivery. Not only can you see the vapor, which is rare for any other vaporizer, but it’s perfect for sharing as well if that is something important to you. Overall, the Volcano is hands down my favorite and I continue to use it almost exclusively. The only downside of it is its cost, but again in the long run, it will easily pay for itself and eventually keep even more money in your pocket (which is something I love!)

  1. Question on vaporizers … I’m only in Colorado for the summer and will be heading back to Texas for the winter months. Are vaporizers considered “paraphernalia”? If I’m stopped on the way to Texas with one in my car, can I be cited?

    Thanks for this informative website. Very much appreciated.

    • not sure about TX law specifically, so I can’t say there. In most states, police can only cite/search you for these things based on probable cause, ie: you’re super high and smell of strong dank or it’s in plain sight when they look in the car. If you have it in the trunk, there’s almost no chance they’d ever cite you since they’d never look there unless you admitted to them you had potentially illegal stuff in your trunk.

      Note: I’m not a lawyer, so don’t take my word for it

  2. I went out of my way and bought a hand held battery model, the flight box for $110.00 and I don’t get as good of a buzz as with my smokeless pipe. I can’t seem to get it to the right temp to burn right. There is suppose to be a light that tells you when it is at the right temp, that doesn’t seem to work. Funny thing is I bought it for the non smell aspect that is very important to me. Please help. Thanks Steve

  3. I’m not sure what I said wrong to get my comment removed, my sincerest apologies if I violated any policies. I noticed that everyone else was being candid with their discussions, so I was under the impression my question would not be inappropriate for this forum. No worries, I was able to find the answer by googling.

    • I didn’t delete your comment, I just have to manually approve comments and sometimes it takes me a long time to get to them 😛 I appreciate all constructive input!


  4. I started vaping 3 years ago to replace smoking ciggies and it has been a complete success after trying everything else to quit. My brother enjoys weed and gives me a little every now and then to help with my PMS and insomonia, so I was wondering if it could be vaped, so thanks for posting about this. I make my own nicotine juice for my vaporizor, but I have no idea how to make it for vaping weed. Is there a recipe? I use an ego joy with dual coil clear cartomizers, so I assume it has to be a juice form, right? Thank you for anything you can tell me.

  5. Hi, does anyone know if vaping THC is as effective as ingesting buds in oil format? This is to treat cancer and obtaining or making oil for me is not an option. However getting a vaporizer is…

    Would appreciate any help!

  6. My husband got blown up 7+ years ago, we are trying to get him off the opioids (very bad stuff) that the doctors prescribed. But the smoke gives me migraines. We’re doing research on the vapor stuff. I made a tincture with a glycerine base, using buds. He tried it in a E-cigarette, just cleaned out the cartilage. But he didn’t get any benefit. It doesn’t have any settings, vapor does come out. would love any input. The vapor doesn’t give me migraines.

  7. I’m new to MMJ, and learned about vaporizing only two days ago — when I saw a doctor to apply for my MMJ Card in Colorado. I purchased a DaVinci and a Puffit, because as a rehabbed smoker of cigarettes I did not want to start smoking anything, even MMJ.

    I’m still futzing around with the temperature, because neither of these two vaporizers give a very good explanation as to ideal temp, or even a general “range” — such as what is the actual combustion point, so I can stay under it, and what might be considered too low to actually be receiving all the benefits.

    But, more than that, I do not have any idea how to determine when the bud in my vaporizer has reached the end of its beneficial life.

    Any suggestions or hi9nts? P.S. My Puffit does the same thing as Frank’s (in regard to the red light/green light; the DaVinci does the same thing as for watching the temp rise on the blue lcd window)

    • I don’t have experience with those 2 models, but I can say that unless you have a digital thermometer, there is going to be some guesswork and getting used to the vaporizer itself. The vaporizer I currently use, Da Buddha, took a couple weeks for me to find out exactly the way I liked it working. My advice is just to experiment and find out what YOU like best. I don’t think there is a right answer here. You just need to stay in between vaping temperature and combustion temperature, which is at least 50 degrees, so you have plenty of room to work with.

      • Thanx, Gimp. Neither of these models have a digital read-out; they both use a 1-7 number system, and do give approximate temp ranges between the low to top numbers. I’ll check out Da Buddha, to see if their digital read-out system is more helpful in my determining the optimum temp, for me. I’ve been doing the same with appropriate dosage (20/25/50 mgs.), and am slowly making headway. Practice makes perfect, so it is said. I’m definitely working for “perfect,” or at least as close to perfect as I can get.

        • Da Buddha doesn’t have a digital read out. The temperature is determined by a smooth dial on the front, much like a volume dial on a radio or something. Basically any temperature is available to you within the vaporizer’s operational range.

    • DenverBear,

      We are about to move to Colorado, West side, and are looking for a good doctor. Do you have any recommendations?

      • I only know the one who helped me and my angel get our MMJ permits, and they were great by us. Goes under the name Relaxed Clarity. They’ve got a location in Colorado Springs which is where we went, and I think also in a south Denver suburb too.

  8. I recommend these vaporizers:

    Regular: Arizer Extreme Q – $240
    Portable – Vapir NO2 – $180

    • Much appreciated for your recommendations. Do you mind elaborating on exactly why you like those particular vaporizers?

      • For the regular, the Arizer Extreme Q is very high quality and is the best bang for your buck compared to its rival Volcano which costs $550+

        As for the Portable Vapir NO2, there are very few that come close to it. Most portables burn the weed, while this one really vaporizes it, and is built of quality material, has long lasting battery, and has digital lcd display for temperature that you can adjust.

        It’s not ‘pocket’ like portable, but more of a ‘put it in your bag’ like portability. Which I prefer to do anyways. Again most pocket vaporizers just burn your stuff.

        This is based on long research, and personal experience, I now use exclusively those two.

        • As the saleswoman told me, “It’s idiot proof.” I said are you referring that I am. . .
          we laughed and I bought.. .and it is idiot proof. Set your temp and go. Red light heating, turns to green when ready. Can actually see temp rise and fall on blue digital face. . .very cool, very easy, very efficient.

  9. I’ve noticed that after a few bowls from my friend’s vape doesn’t work nearly as well as my bong for me? Is this me being one in a million or is this a common issue. I wouldn’t want to drop $100+ on a vape that I’m not gonna use because my bong does it better for me :S

    thanks for any input :)

    • There’s a lot of factors going on here.

      1) The vaporizer he uses might not be high quality, there’s a lot of shitty ones.. do you know which kind it is?

      2) Many vaporizers have an adjustable thermostat. Everyone has their own preference for temperature, so it’s definitely possible that he was using a temperature that just isn’t up your alley, maybe you want something a little hotter.

      3) It took me a little getting used to vaping at first because it is just a different experience than smoking (still as good, if not better IMO). If you’ve been smoking a long time, it becomes even harder I think because vaping doesn’t give you that instant high you get from coughing with a bong, but rather takes a few minutes to settle in. I used to smoke out of a bong every day, now I only smoke out of a bong as a last resort because vapes use less weed (meaning more sessions) and at least in my case, get me just as high.

      That’s my 2 cents. The vape I’m using right now is Da Buddha Vaporizer and it is just a beast. Heats up quick, lets me choose the temp, gets me high as a kite.


  10. Isn’t there a chance tho that only evaporating the THC in the marijuana means you will lose out on some other important part of the high. THC is the most important part, but I’ve heard there are several other chemicals that contribute. So my question is do you lose out on anything important through vaporisation?

    • It is true that there are other active cannabinoids in weed like cannabidiol (CBD), but from what I’ve been able to research, they all have similar boiling temperatures and they are all well below the combustion temperature of the marijuana. This means that you will be able to vaporize all of the active compounds without having to introduce combustion to the process.
