A Vaporizer is a healthier alternative to lighting up your cannabis. Vaporizers work by heating weed to a temperature hot enough to vaporize the plant material but not burn it, so you inhale the essential active compounds without inhaling any smoke or harmful by-products like tar or carbon monoxide which can irritate your throat and lungs. Vaporizers also give off less of a telltale smell and can be purchased to be used only at home or on the go.
