What is a Vaporizer?

Our "What is a Vaporizer?" page is a great place to start whether you're new to vaporization, or if you're a senior vaporist and just interested in seeing the newest methods of vaporizing. We go into the history of vaporizers all the way back to the early 90's and why they are the future. We also talk about two main types of vaporizers; Convection and Conduction, and the 2 main methods of vaporization: Forced Air (Balloon), and Direct Draw via Whip or Mouthpiece.

History Of Vaporization

Vaporizing is quickly becoming very popular, and for good reason. However, many people are surprised to learn just how long vaporizing has been around for. There are accounts of vaporizing that date back to ancient Egypt. Although they may have been primitive compared to today's digital devices, the concept was still the same!

Convection vs. Conduction

Most vaporizers heat aromatic blends by way of convection, conduction, or a combination of the two. Here we talk about the differences between the methods behind vaporization.

Staples Of The Industry

Twenty years ago there was no vaporization industry. Today, there are dozens of vaporizer manufacturers, ranging from small shops turning out handcrafted vaporizers to large, established manufacturers looking to expand their product line.

Evolution Of The Portable

The portable vaporizer has not just been around since the early days of modern vaporization, it was a portable that began it all. Eagle Bill Amato, described in our first article as the Father of Vapor, created an affordable vaporizer that anyone could use.

Future of Vaporization

The improved portability of next generation designs like Pax is helping to vault vaporizers from a previously niche market into the mainstream. Until now, the typical vaporizer consumer was an early adopter (think iPhone 1): they had already researched vaporization, and had likely used or even owned a vaporizer in the past.
