Beginner’s guide to buying a weed vaporizer

Deciding on which weed vaporizer best suits you can be a daunting task. This is especially true if you’re fairly new to vaping. It’s extremely important to familiarize yourself with the different types of weed vaporizers out there.


Lucky for you, we’re here to help make things easier. Below is a guide that contains all the necessary information you will need when it comes to choosing the perfect weed vaporizer for you. It’s important to take note that there’s no such thing as a “best weed vaporizer” because it all depends on the person’s preference. 


Things to consider

Now, we’re not talking about brand or designs. Instead, we’re talking about the more important information here. Listed below are the important things you have to familiarize yourself with. 

  • Features (kinds of technologies used in the device and if it suits your needs and preference)
  • Pros and cons when it comes to using a weed vaporizer
  • Price 

Also, we’ve listed a few queries below that may be able to help you with the decision making process. 

How often will you use your device?


This is important because if you plan to use your device every day, then it’s best to go for a more durable model. This ensures that you won’t have to replace your model over and over again. This saves you time and money.


Is portability important to you?

If yes, then smaller and more discrete models are the ones for you. But if you don’t plan to “vape on the go”, getting a bigger (and they usually tend to be more durable) model is more practical. 


Portable weed vaporizers often come in a sleek and fashionable physique. They are fairly easy to conceal or disguise because some models look like a regular pen. The only downside to this is they’re arguably more fragile and can only hold a small amount of weed.


Non-portable models are fairly larger than portable ones. As the name suggests, they are not easy to move from one place or another. The good news is they last longer than portable weed vaporizers and they produce more vapor. 



Is this your first time using a weed vaporizer? 


This ensures that you get the right model depending on your experience with weed vaporizers. Beginners, such as yourself, prefer a simpler and easy to handle model. 



How much are you willing to spend on your device?


If you want a device that comes with a lot of features, then you have to be prepared to spend a little more money than you intended.


Some models come with a Bluetooth feature which allows you to link your weed vaporizer to your phone to track its usage and temperature. Other devices allow you to control the temperature to suit your preference. 


These added features don’t come in cheap. So if you’re willing to spend a few extra dollars for these features, then knock yourself out. You also have the option to go for a simple device. They’re arguably more affordable than the models I’ve mentioned above. 



What’s your heating preference?


You have 2 choices. Conduction or convection. How does conduction work? Basically, your materials absorb heat from a heat source. This often results to erratic temperatures. This may change the taste of your vapor.


Convection in a nutshell is heat being circulated in the chamber. This means your device’s temperature is evenly distributed. This result to more potent tasting vapor. People often prefer devices that utilizes this heating method.


We’ve given you all the important information you will need when you decide to buy a weed vaporizer. But feel free to do more research if you want more in depth information regarding a specific model you’ve got your eyes on.
