Things to Consider When Buying a Vaporizer

If you’re looking to start vaporizing there are many things to keep in mind when buying a vaporizer.

Herbs or Concentrates?

Do you want to vaporize herbs, concentrates or both? This is the first question you need to ask yourself when purchasing a vaporizer. Some vaporizers are meant strictly for herbs, and others are only meant to be used with concentrates.

Many of the higher end vaporizers will have attachments to accommodate both herbs and concentrates.

Desktop vs Portable

The second question you need to ask yourself is do you want to vaporize on the go?

There are two different styles of vaporizers, portables and desktops. The only difference is desktops need to be plugged into the wall whereas portables run off a battery.

Portables can be quite convenient and can be used almost anywhere. Desktops can be quite inconvenient at times but the vapor quality is typically better compared to portable units.

You Get What You Pay For

This saying couldn’t be more true when it comes to vaporizers. Quality vaporizers cost money to produce; therefore they cost money to buy.

My advice is don’t cheap out when buying a vaporizer. Think about it as an investment, and think about all the marijuana you’ll save in the long run by making this investment.

Generally you should expect to pay over $100 for a decent vaporizer, and the higher end models can run upwards of $300.

Check Reviews

You should always check what other people are saying about a vaporizer before you make a purchase. Don’t just see what the happy customers are saying either; you should be looking for negative reviews. There are so many low quality products on the market right now, so it’s important to always check reviews of past customers. Be sure to check ratings and reviews before buying any vaporizer.

Stick With Brands You Can Trust

The vaporizer market is over saturated with low-quality vaporizer companies selling cheap vaporizers. You should stick to larger brands such as Arizer, Storz & Bickel or 7th Floor. They are well known, and have good warranty programs in place in case you should run into any issues with your vape.

Never Buy Knock-Offs

This goes hand in hand with the previous tip. Always buy brand name and always buy your vaporizers from a trusted source. If you buy vaporizers off eBay or a shady convenience store, there’s a good chance you might buy a knock-off product. These vaporizers will not come with any warranties obviously, and are usually made of low-quality components.
