The 4 Most Important Benefits of Vaporizing

Vaporizing has become a really hot trend right now, as it is way more beneficial than other methods of consumption when it comes to oils and concentrates. People love it and all signs indicate that this trend is here to stay. Fortunately, today we have a wide range of products available on the market, so you can find anything you need from oil pens to desktop and handheld vaporizers. These units generally come in packages, with such supportive items as vape cartridgesbatteries, maintenance kits, chargers, etc. The reason why vaporizers have been such a spectacular success among both newbies and more experienced concentrate users is that they come with numerous benefits – both medicinal and ‘practical’ – so as you can see, people love them for a reason.

What Is Vaporizing?

In a nutshell, vaporizing means heating an oil or extract to an optimal temperature in order to release the active ingredients of the plant without triggering combustion. Generally, the process converses a particular substance from a liquid or solid form into gas, usually by using heating elements. Read on to learn more about the very method and embrace the benefits of using vaporizers!

What Are Vaporizers And How Do They Work?

Simply put, vaporizers are devices that heat concentrates, oils or extracts below their combustion point. As I mentioned before, this way, you’re releasing all the beneficial compounds from the extracted herb. As for vaporizers, there is a lot of options available on the market, among which you’ll find both tabletop units and hand-held devices that come equipped with vape cartridges and batteries – these are essential for providing the optimal vaping experience to users who like to vape their concentrates on-the-go.

To cut a long story short, when using a vaporizer, you’re heating the material to a temperature between 190 and 450 F. Upon reaching the vaporization point, your concentrate releases its valuable compounds in the form of vapor, so you can inhale it through the mouthpiece.

There are two ways a vaporizer can heat your extracts: it’s either by conduction or convection. The first one keeps the material in the direct contact with the heat source, so a little combustion on burning may still occur if you set your temperature too high. In order to avoid this, remember to regulate the heat of your unit by setting the right temperature. Convection, on the other hand, heats the air evenly, making it pass through the plant material and allowing you to inhale the purest vapor possible. This way, you’re getting the most out of your extracts, with one little drawback if you’re a visual vaper – the vapor produced by units that use convection is rather thin and airy.

The Benefits of Using Vaporizers

When it comes to vaporizing, there is a long list of perks this method offers. Below, you’ll find everything you need to know about the benefits of using vaporizers:


Many doctors recommend vaporizing as one of the safest methods for consuming extracts, as it doesn’t involve combustion. That being said, you can take the advantage of using oils or concentrates without having to worry about inhaling the smoke and carcinogens to your system.

When you start vaporizing, you’ll soon realize the improvement in breathing, especially if you’ve been smoking your materials for a long time. Vaporizing allows you to have a much healthier and almost pristine experience, as the vapor doesn’t expose you to any harmful toxins that you can find in smoke.

A study conducted among individuals who used extracts – published in 2007 – shows that vaporizing concentrates provides the same beneficial effects as smoking, save for the fact that the vapor is free of toxic compounds found in smoke.

Besides, vaporizing is also beneficial for your lungs. In 2010, researchers conducted a month-long study that showed a “meaningful improvement” among smokers who started vaporizing their plant material instead of burning it.

There are many methods of consuming extracts, but the fastest way to absorb the beneficial compounds found in the material is through your lungs. Thus, not only is vaporizing beneficial for your health, but it also provides relief in a matter of seconds.

User Experience

The reason why vaporizers have jumped on everyone’s tongues lies in their advanced technology, ease of use, and – last but not least – sleek designs. There are units with features like digital controls, advanced heating mechanisms, extremely precise temperature settings, or even dedicated apps that are compatible with your smartphone. All of these offer a user an unforgettable experience when it comes to the use of concentrates.

When vaporizing your materials, you can feel the full flavor of your extract because vaporization allows you to draw the most out of the terpene profile of your concentrate.

Okay, but what on earth is a terpene profile? What are terpenes in the first place?

Well, terpenes are responsible for the way your material tastes, not to mention that they show therapeutic features, too. Contrary to smoking, vaporizing extracts doesn’t destroy the terpene profile, and thus leaves absolutely no waste during use.

Like I said, there is a broad selection of vaporizers available online, and if you are in need of taking your unit on the go, you can choose a vape or oil pen, or actually any portable vaporizer that works with extracts. Portable vaping units are powered by interchangeable batteries and usually come equipped with vape or oil cartridges, which makes it a child’s play to use and operate.


Speaking of the benefits of using vaporizers, I couldn’t leave out the fact that they will save you lots of money in the long run. Although purchasing a vaporizer is a big investment, you’ll eventually notice that it is a financially savvy move. On top of that, vaporizers extend the life of your plant material.These units are the textbook example of efficiency since there is no wasted vapor or smoke produced. Additionally, you can customize such a unit to meet your specific preferences, while smoking leaves you with no other choice but to burn your precious material.


If you’re looking for a way to use your extracts more stealthy, vaporizers are the name of the game. The smell of vapor doesn’t linger or stain, and if you’re using a vape pen, you can conceal it in your pocket within seconds if you need to do so. Don’t forget that many handheld vaporizers look like e-cigarettes, so you can use your extracts without having to worry about raising suspicions. In fact, one of the best things about vaporizing is that it doesn’t affect anyone around you with the unpleasant, harsh smell associated with smoking. So, the moment you start vaporizing instead of smoking your concentrates, you’ll forget about smelly clothes and hair.

As a final word, I cannot help but state it again: vaping extracts is the best alternative to smoking, and regardless of your motivation, you should at least try if this trend becomes your friend.
