The Process Of Vaporization Explained
What exactly is VaporizationFor many, many years smoking has been the accepted approach for extracting and inhaling the active ingredients found in herbs and tobacco. Soon after our ancestors discovered a means to create and control fire, they were burning plants for light, for warmth, and also for the smoke. By inhaling the natural byproduct of burning plant material (smoke), one could enjoy the benefits of the active ingredients contained within that plant. While this was a discovery of monumental proportions at the time, smoking came with some dangerous effects, and our ancestors did not have the scientific or medical knowledge to fully understand just how harmful smoking can be.
It was not until fairly recently that we have come to comprehend the dangers of smoke, and the medical community has been vigilant about sharing this information with the public in hopes of educating current and potential smokers of the risks associated with the habit of smoking. Many current smokers feel that quitting will be a daunting task, even with full knowledge of the negative effects; but for those who have yet to try smoking, hopefully the message is well received. A less harmful method of enjoying the active ingredient found in herbs or tobacco is now available to all! This revolutionary alternative to smoking is called Vaporization.
Thanks to digital technology, manufacturers have been able to make a device called a heating element that has the ability to maintain a steady temperature determined by the user. It is this simple yet brilliant piece of equipment that makes Vaporization possible. Using a knob or digital display, you can adjust the heat of the element so that it is just warm enough to release the active ingredients but not too hot that it destroys the plant material itself. That’s all a vaporizer does! The warm air essentially boils off the essence of the plant into a gentle vapor that can be inhaled; the structure of the plant remains intact. There is no combustion, no fire, no burning, no ashes, and no smoke!
Inhaling hot smoke can be very damaging to the lungs and respiratory systems. Those delicate tissues were not meant to be exposed to the irritating particulates and carcinogens contained in smoke nor such high temperatures. Eliminating smoke by using a convection heating method can reduce a lot of the harm done to the lungs. Controlling the temperature of the vapor also helps to reduce damage from heat. If you make the choice to stop smoking and start vaporizing, you may notice an increase in your energy levels and be able to lead a more active lifestyle. Taking good care of your lungs will pay off in many ways!
Some skeptics feel that Vaporization is not as effective as smoking because material remains after the vapor is inhaled. This glaring misconception is perpetuated by smokers who are accustomed to an extreme and intense smoking experience. What they fail to realize is that much of the sensational effects come from the harmful smoke, and not the active ingredient itself. Vaporizers are especially efficient and effective, releasing the active ingredients without creating smoke. When used properly, one can inhale a small amount of vapor and receive more active ingredient than would be delivered in a larger amount of smoke.
