How Vaporizers Work

For a lot of people, vaporizing is the uncontested perfect way to get high. Not only it saves you money, it’s healthier and smoother, too. But what exactly goes on inside the little devices? How do they produce vapor?

Basically, what vapes do is heat up the cannabis enough that the cannabinoids begin to evaporate into air, but without letting the temperature burn the herb. The resulting vapor s free from combustion products such as carbon monoxide, tar, and other toxins that are found in smoke.

There are two ways in which vapes can heat up cannabis – through convection or conduction.

Conduction & Convection


When you use a conduction-based vaporizer, the cannabis is in direct contact with the heating element. This kind of vaporizer tends to utilize hot plates that transfer the heat straight to the herb. Thus, it rapidly releases the cannabinoids into air, and they get ready to be drawn in.

Pros of Conduction:

Cons of Conduction:

Examples of Conduction Vaporizers: Magic Flight Launch Box, WISPR, DaVinci, IOLITE, PUFFiT. It’s the perfect way to enjoy Cran Apple ejuice.


In a convection vaporizer, the herb is heated indirectly with hot air. A gauze or screen keeps the cannabis separated from the source of heat, protecting it from burning. The heat source is capable of warming the air to a more precise temperature, and it then passes through and surrounds the cannabis, heating up and making it vaporize.

Pros of Convection:
