It has been more than 20 years since the first vaporizers appeared and in recent years many marijuana users have switched from smoke to vaporizers. Vaporization is a much healthier way to consume marijuana and its extractions than if we smoke them, and marijuana vaporizers are a much cleaner and safer way than smoke. you can buy these products with medical marijuana card from any marijuana dispensary.
The vaporizers marijuana allow you to extract more cannabinoids than smoking, making enhance the experience for these reasons and many more, are every day more people that are passed from the smoke vapor.
What is a vaporizer and what benefits do they have?
The vaporizers are able to extract the active components of marijuana without having to combustion (burn marijuana) and generating smoke, vaporizers work by heating the pot at high temperatures but without actually making them burn with this getting in Instead of smoke, vapor comes out, in that vapor the active components of marijuana will be found and in much more quantity than in the smoke that we inhale when smoking, and with the benefit of having almost no harmful substances, which are very abundant in smoke.
When we smoke we are burning the marijuana, we burn it so that through combustion we release the active components of marijuana (terpenes, cannabinoids, flavonoids, etc …) to our smoke. When smoking, the combustion or burning of marijuana produces smoke in which about 85% are harmful particles such as carbon monoxide or tar, which, added to the high temperatures of the smoke, irritate the lungs and respiratory tract.
A vaporizing the marijuana got steam over 95% of the components of active marijuana without generating harmful substances just as carbon monoxide or tar as smoking occurs.
Vaporizing can also improve your experience because vaporized marijuana is more powerful than smoked and depending on the vaporization temperatures you will take advantage of some active components or others, that is why modern vaporizers incorporate a very precise temperature control so that you achieve the exact effect that you seek.
What types of vaporizers are there?
To vaporize your marijuana you will first need to choose a vaporizer that suits your preferences when consuming your marijuana, there are different types of vaporizers for marijuana and according to their benefits they can be:

What temperatures should I apply in the vaporization?
When you go to vaporize your marijuana you should know that its active components, cannabinoids, terpenes, and flavinoids evaporate at different temperatures ranging from 155ºC to 220ºC.
The active components of marijuana (cannabinoids, terpenes, and flavonoids) have different evaporation temperatures and you will notice more pronounced effects towards some cannabinoids or others. Normally low temperatures (185ºC) give a more cerebral high, while at higher temperatures (200ºC) the high becomes more physical, however experimenting with temperatures is key, we all have different preferences when consuming our marijuana and Finding the temperature that best suits your marijuana is a very good idea.
The best temperature range to vaporize marijuana is between 180º and 210º, in that range, you extract more cannabinoids, terpenes, and flavinoids than at temperatures outside that range, do tests with your marijuana to find what temperature is the one that produces the effect that you are looking for.
THC, which is the main psychoactive component of marijuana, begins to evaporate at 155ºC ~ 157ºC.
THC Delta 8 has anxiolytic effects (against anxiety), is neuroprotective, stimulates the appetite, and calms pain. Delta 8 THC evaporates between 170 ° C ~ 180 ° C.
CBD, which is an anti-inflammatory, antioxidant, antipsychotic and helps prevent seizures and spasms, has an evaporation temperature that ranges from 160ºC to 180ºC.
CBN, which has relaxing properties, is antiemetic (prevents nausea and vomiting) is an anticonvulsant (prevents seizures and spasms) and its evaporation begins at around 185ºC.
CBC has anti-inflammatory properties, it is analgesic and antibacterial, it evaporates at around 220ºC.
THCV is psychoactive, has an energizing effect, and has medicinal qualities such as reducing anxiety and promoting the creation of bone cells, this component of marijuana evaporates at 220ºC.
Remember that marijuana from 230ºC begins to burn and generate combustion (smoke).
