We know vaping is a cleaner alternative to smoking our favorite herb, but making the jump isn’t always easy. For veteran smokers, it might take some time to get used to lighter “clouds” or smooth hits. That’s why finding the right vape for you is important. Most of the vaporizers nowadays are portable, as their convenience surpasses the performance of a desktop vaporizer, and if budget isn’t a problem you can even find equally good flavor on a portable.
Once you enjoyed the benefits and flavor of a good vape, it’s hard to combust your cannabis again. But don’t be afraid, a joint will always be an alternative!

Choosing the Best Vaporizer for You
The best weed vaporizer for you will depend on your unique preferences and budget. Health conditions might also influence your choice, as some vaporizers have more draw resistance, which difficult the use of those with respiratory issues. We recommend checking with your physician if that’s the case.
Is a marijuana vaporizer worth the investment?
Yes, not only it will allow you to have a completely new experience with weed, but if you’re a frequent user, you will save money within the first year. Some vaporizers are really efficient, allowing you to squeeze all the good stuff from your weed. Even when you’re done vaping, you can still reuse the AVB (Already vape buds) to make edibles. Also, when you pay for a premium vaporizer, you get at least a 2-year warranty ( up to 10 for the best-in-class), which is amazing for a daily use vape.
One of my favorite incentives to buy a vape is discreteness. I don’t like to be intrusive with people around me. Vapes, unlike joints, have far less odor, clouds disappear quicker, and don’t make your clothes stink. Yes, this means they are a weapon to change stigmas associated with weed.
Now, not everything is great. We found some negative aspects to consider. Price, is one of the most important aspects, as a cheap vaporizer can burn your weed. You don’t have to go crazy with the latest most expensive model, but always better to invest a little more than the lowest tier vapes. $100 is the lowest we found to be acceptable. Another downside, maintenance. Some vaporizers require a lot of maintenance, from cleaning to replacing moving pieces, which is far from ideal.
