What is an herbal vape pen?

An herbal vape pen is a smoking device that allows you to smoke without all of the harmful effects that are normally associated with it. These devices use either convection or conduction in order to heat up the material and produce a pure vapor without having to inhale any of the other toxins. They have quickly become popular because they are discreet and can help people quit smoking and can be seen at local bars and restaurants.


The majority of people who use a vape pen have filled it with a liquid substitute for tobacco. However, these devices can also be used with other herbal material including dry herbs or weed as well as wax cannabis concentrates. Therefore, vape pens are used by two completely different types of consumers, people looking for a substitute to smoking cigarettes and those looking for a substitute for smoking marijuana.  When used with cannabis, they are more often referred to as marijuana vape pens.


Whether used for tobacco or cannabis, vape pens work by producing a vapor that is inhaled. These devices contain a central heating component that enables it to slowly heat up the dry product whether it be the actual herbs or an oil or wax derivative to between 350 to 400 degrees.  This is considered the point right before combustion. The result is a vapor that is in its purest form.  This is in contrast to normal smoking devices that often rise in temperatures of over and above 1000 degrees in order to burn the product which results in harmful toxins and unwanted residue inhaled to your lungs.  Without the toxins and residue being inhaled, there is less pollution going into your lungs.  Therefore, your chances of becoming sick are reduced.


Vapor pens come in a variety of different designs. However, almost all of them are extremely small and portable, and can usually fit right into your pocket.  The fact that both a wax vape pen and an oil vape pen are so tiny and easily confused as an electronic cigarette makes them highly discreet and therefore, the best portable vaporizer you can own.  Furthermore, even when you exhale the vapor, it is virtually odorless.  Since these devices are somewhat concealed, you can easily bring them with you almost anywhere you want.

However, bear in mind that not all vape pens can work with all products.  Most are designed to work with one type of substance, be it herbs, wax, or oil.  There are a few that are designed to vape all three.  The decision on which one to buy comes down to how much you are willing to spend, what type of materials you plan on vaping, discreetness, and the online reviews that are available for you to read.


When researching the type of vape pen to purchase, you also need to look at the type of atomizer that is inside.  An atomizer is the coil component that heats up the product in order to produce the vapor for inhalation.  There are numerous types available and if you do not inhale correctly, you will need to replace it sooner rather than later.
