Vaporizers are a great purchase for a number of reasons including portability and price value. They had been used long before they moved into mainstream appeal. They utilize a variety of heating technologies (which use convection and conduction heating) at lower temperatures, far less than combustion requires. These temperatures are adjusted to vaporize a specific compound and no additional chemicals are inhaled and ingested in the lungs. This results in a healthier way to indulge when compared to smoking.

Vaporizers have different designs which allow for different uses. These include, loose leaf, essential oils, and multi-use (which can be used with both concentrates and loose leaf) vaporizers.
