Vaporizers may be new in the smoking world, but make no mistake, they're here to stay. Vaporizers offer one of the most convenient ways to smoke and possibly have the least barrier to entry into the smoking and cannabis world. When talking about vapes, they're usually grouped into three different categories.
Dry-Herb vaporizers are just about as popular as concentrate vaporizers. These vapes are made to be used with dry-herb or flower. We can further break down dry-herb vaporizers into conduction and convection heating vaporizers. These are two different types of heating technologies commonly found in dry-herb vaporizers. If you're looking for a more budget option, Yocan offers excellent bang for your buck vapes. On the higher end we have brands like Pax, and DaVinci. If money is not an object, then arguably Storz & Bickel, and Stündenglass are the two brands you want to look at.
Concentrate vaporizers are the most popular vaporizers in the market today. They offer an incredibly easy way to smoke dabs, wax, and other concentrates. No more lugging around a torch and rig. For the first time buyer, a Yocan is perfect. In the mid to high range, we love Dr. Dabber, Puffco, and Stonesmith. The top high end brand vapes are usually both dry-herb and concentrate compatible.
Cartridge Vaporizers and 510 Batteries
Cartridges are becoming more and more common in Canadian dispensaries. They are an easy plug and play method of smoking concentrates and wax from your favourite brands. Some brand specific cartridges are only compatible with brand specific cartridge vaporizers. On top of that, there is a universal cartridge that is being used. 510 cartridges are compatible with any 510 threaded battery.
