A vaporizer or vaporiser is a device used to vaporize the active ingredients of plant material, commonly cannabis, tobacco, or other herbs or blends for the purpose of inhalation. However, they can be used with pure chemicals when mixed with plant material (e.g. nicotine-free tobacco). Vaporization is an alternative to burning (smoking) that avoids the inhalation of many irritating toxic and carcinogenic by-products.
Let’s first ask, What is vaporization?
Vaporization occurs when a flux of so many gamma ray, x-ray, ultraviolet and heat photons strikes matter in a such brief amount of time (a great number of high-energy photons, some overlapping in the same physical space) that all molecules lose their atomic bonds and “fly apart”. All nuclei lose their electron shells and become positively-charged ions, in turn emitting photons of a slightly lower energy than they had absorbed. All such matter becomes a gas of nuclei and electrons which rise into the air due to their high temperature or bond to each other as they cool.
Now we know what vaporizer’s hope to achieve, their main goal.
