Conduction VS Convection Vaporizers
TWO METHOD TO SMOKE DRY HERBAL PRODUCTS
There are 2 different heating method to smoke your dry herbal products. Conduction and convection are the two ways, the most common type and inexpensive is the conduction technique where the dry herbal material makes direct contact with the heating element, providing fast vapor (like a pipe or bong hit for on the go). On the other hand, the conduction method is the most preferred by doctors as the ground material does not make direct contact with the heating element, but instead hot air heats up the product, there is no combustion occurring at all, eliminating toxic smoke.
The Conduction Vaporizer will heat up your herbs directly making contact. The vapor is produced really fast as the dry herb is in contact with the heating element. The conduction vaporizer is the biggest selection in the market comparing with the convection vaporizers. Most conduction pens are really economical. The conduction vaporizer is more for on the go smoking if you want to save papers and dry herbs. If you are looking for a few pipe hits these pens are perfect for you.
The dry herb in the convection vaporizer will not make contact with the heating element, but instead hot air in the oven heats and warms up the dry herb, producing clean vapor. Convection is the best way to vaporizer your dry herb. No combustion is occurring at all preventing it from releasing noxious smoke, but instead releases pure vapor. Most doctors recommend these type of vaporizers for medical marijuana.
