Types of Vaporizer

There are a lot of vaporizers out there. They range in price from just a few dollars to make your own, to spending hundreds on a Volcano unit.

What is right for you? Do you even need a vaporizer?

Some reasons for purchasing a vaporizer

  • Health benefits – can you put a price on your body?
  • Financial benefits – vaporizing uses less plant substance compared to smoking.
  • Stealth – Most vaporizer devices wont cause alarm.
  • Smell – the smell of vapor is not that of smoke, and wont stink up a room as much as smoking. There is a smell, but it is not that of herbal smoke.
  • Quitting smoking – a vaporizer can help one reduce their nicotine/tobacco intake slowly.
