4 Things to Keep in Mind When You’re Buying a Vaporizer

Four things are enough to keep in mind all at once.

We all know that smoking is bad for our lungs, but the reality is that most of us still consume marijuana by smoking it. Vaporizing is a great way to get all of the medicinal benefits of marijuana, without so many of the unwanted side effects of smoking.

If you’re looking to get into vaporizing, there are two main questions you need to ask yourself:

First question: What will you be vaporizing?

Do you prefer herbs, or do you enjoy concentrates? This is the first question you need to ask yourself. Some vaporizers will be able to do both, but lots of vaporizers only do one or the other. Keep this in mind when choosing a vaporizer.

Question two: Will you be vaporizing on the go?

There are two main categories of vaporizers.

Desktop vaporizers: These are vaporizers that plug into the wall as a source of power.

Portable vaporizers: Portables use a rechargeable battery as a power source.

Now that you've figured out those two options, here are your tips for buying a vaporizer:

1) Always Read Reviews Before Buying

A good tip is to always read reviews of past purchasers before making your decision to purchase a vaporizer. There is no shortage of low quality vaporizers on the market; so be careful and always do your due diligence research before buying. Websites such as iMariijuanit.com and even mainstream sites like The Wirecutter are good places to find reviews on all the latest vaporizers as they hit the market.

2) Buy Trusted Vaporizer Brands

Because, as said before, there are so many low-quality vaporizers on the market these days, you're usually better off buying from trusted brand names such as Arizer, Da Vinci, FireflyGrenco, PAXVapir, and Storz & Bickel—to name and link to a few. Buying from trusted vaporizer manufacturers is a good way to ensure you will be buying a quality product. 


3) Buy From Trusted Retailers

There are tons of vaporizer knock offs for sale online. Don’t be fooled and buy what you think is a high-quality vaporizer at a bargain price. Only purchase from trusted vaporizer retailers and never buy from places like eBay. 


4) More Expensive Doesn’t Always Mean Better

Though the vast majority of high-quality vaporizers can be deemed by most people as expensive, you don’t have to break your bank to get a quality vaporizer. You can find plenty of vaporizers at lower price points, such as the Pulsar APX or the APX Wax for example, which both retail for $59.99! 

Just because a vaporizer is priced high, doesn’t mean it’s a quality vaporizer. There are plenty of overpriced, low-quality vaporizers on the market; so don’t think you're guaranteed a quality product just because you spent more than you can afford.
