Vaporization

THE VAPORIZER REVOLUTION HAS BEGUN

 

What is a vaporizer?  Why is vaporizing better than smoking?

Do you ever worry about the carcinogens, tar, and foul odors caused by combustion? Why not replace those worries with more flavorful, healthy, and economical water vapor produced by a vaporizer?

A vaporizer is a device that is used to extract the active ingredients from plant materials. Vaporizers accomplish this feat by heating the plant material to a point hot enough so that the active ingredients undergo a phase change from a liquid state to gaseous state (producing the water vapor!). Though vaporizer designs differ in form and function, their invention and subsequent use have collectively revolutionized the industry. 

As a healthier and more economic alternative to smoking, vaporizers completely changed the game. By using our world class vaporizers you can experience the cleanest, purest flavor in a healthy and economical manner. No more combustion!

WHY IS VAPORIZING HEALTHIER?

Vaporizing, in contrast to combustion, heats the plant material to the perfect temperature to efficiently extract the full flavor, potency, and purity of your plant material. Combustion of plant fibers creates a nasty cloud of carcinogens, tar, and other chemicals that can cause respiratory hazards (in other words, smoke).

When you vaporize, you are inhaling the active ingredients in your material while significantly reducing the amount of smoke toxins absorbed. These smoke toxins include polynuclear aromatic hydrocarbons (or PAHs), best known for being a prime suspect in cigarette-related cancers. Vaporizing circumvents the need to inhale these toxins, providing the user with healthy and satisfying water vapor.

By choosing vaporizing, you kill two birds with one stone by giving both your lungs and wallet a tasty break!

HOW IS VAPORIZING MORE EFFICIENT?

Nobody wants to spend more money than they need to! Using a vaporizer as an alternative to smoking not only enables you to be healthier, but also enables you to get the most out of the active ingredients in your plant material. Vaporizers are significantly more efficient than smoking for a number of reasons:

TEMPERATURE CONTROL - Vaporizers allow the user to avoid use of open flame, the most common form of ignition for combustion. Instead, vaporizers can accurately control their maximum temperature to just under the combustion point, eliminating waste and providing the user with plentiful vapor clouds. The process of vaporization is slower than combustion as the plant material must reach the target extraction temperature, offering a spectrum of active ingredients across a longer, more efficient session.

SMALLER SAMPLE SIZE - Efficient vaporizers, such as the Cloud EVO, use significantly less material than combusting for each session. Even with this smaller sample size, efficient vaporizers can produce the full spectrum of active ingredients, all the while preserving aromatics and potency!

CONCENTRATION & DENSITY - The vapor produced by a vaporizer has a notably higher concentration of active ingredients when compared to combustion. Studies have shown that up to 88% of the total gas content in combusted material is non-active while, in contrast, the gas content in vapor consists of up to 95% active ingredients. This purity, combined with the efficient extraction of plant aromatics creates the tasty, blue vapor of the Cloud EVO!

Put simply, our vaporizer is capable of precisely controlling the temperature of your material, using less material to create more purity and flavor!

This list of vaporization materials compiles some of the properties and potential therapeutic uses which others have found by vaporizing those herbs- of course everyone is different, so some may discover different effects from others, but it’s intended as a guide for those new to using aromatherapy vaporizers. Vaporization of these substances should not be considered an alternative to medical treatment. Always consult your doctor if in need of advice or unsure of medical implications of use of these materials.
