Portable vaporizers have been a wonderful addition to the cannabis community, providing a discreet and user-friendly experience in a small device. Built from the same desktop version as vaporizers, portable vapes both use convection or conduction methods and are a fantastic way to get high. Many people often have a difficult time choosing the best portable vape pen because not only is there a variety to choose from, certain options may be better for your specific reason for consumption. Here’s a quick guide to the best portable vaporizers and how to choose the best one for you!

How do vapes work?

Portable vaporizers are battery-powered and can come in many shapes and sizes. Vapes function from a conduction or convection heating process. Conduction is when a hot plate directly heats up your cannabis, while convection involves hot air that circulates to heat things up evenly. 

Are vaporizers worth it?

Many have turned to vaping as a health-conscious alternative to smoking due to its cleaner taste and easy way to smoke without being noticed. The smoke that produces from a vaporizer is a lot smoother on the lungs and cuts out the ash and tar particles from a normal burning process. 

Which portable vaporizer is the best?

Depending on whether you prefer a dry herb or a wax/concentrate, there is a vast selection of portable vaporizers to accommodate your needs. If you’re new to vaping or in an area where it is more difficult to get your hands on concentrates, try dry herb. There is an herb chamber to pack your weed into and make sure to read the user manual on your device to ensure you’re heating up your portable vaporizer properly. For concentrates, the process is pretty straightforward as well where you fasten the bottom of the concentrate cartridge into your portable vaporizer device.
