Newbie's guide to choosing the best weed vaporizer

Vape enthusiasts often ask the same question. “What is the best weed vaporizer out there?”. Before we jump into the discussion of which is the best weed vaporizer, I would like to tackle the more famous question when it comes to vaping. “Is vaping better than smoking?

The answer? Yes. It's significantly better than smoking because using a vaporizer helps lower your chances of being exposed to harmful toxins like pyrolytic carcinogenic compounds that is linked to smoking. Some studies even proved that vaping does lessen the chance of diseases that come from smoking like lung cancer or any other lung related complication. 

But this doesn't mean it's completely harmless to you. Some traces of pyrolytic compounds that were found in smoke can also be found in vapor. The only difference is these compounds exist more in smoke than in vapor. This means that there's still a chance that vaping would cause lung complications. At best, the chance of you contracting these complications are only lessened, not eliminated.

Vaping also does cause lung irritation because the combustion process is still present. This results to wheezing or coughing temporarily. 

Now that we got that out of the way, what's the best weed vaporizer? Here are 6 of the best weed vaporizers available out there.
