The Best Portable Cannabis Vaporizers

If you’re someone who would prefer to not smoke your cannabis there’s another option that you can use to enjoy it: vaporizing. Vapors will help to give you the same effect as smoking, but in a different way. Because of their now more advantageous ways, vaporizers are some of the top devices to use to help you better enjoy smoking cannabis. Keep reading to learn more about how using a vaporizer for cannabis is beneficial and the top vaporizers on the market for you to use.

The Benefits of Vaping

There are many benefits that come with vaping. Here are a few of them.

They Are More Powerful

Surprisingly, vapors actually work to give a more powerful experience to you with cannabis than smoking. This is due to them heating the cannabis and helping to create a stronger scent and taste with it rather than you having to inhale just smoke.

They Are Safer

If you smoke cannabis you’re more than likely more susceptible to getting mouth and lung cancer. This is due to the smoke irritating your mouth and lungs. Vapors are a much safer option because they don’t emit as much smoke and you aren’t inhaling the dangerous fumes that smoking brings.

They Don’t Have a Strong Smell

Smoking cannabis often emits a very strong smell. This can not only be irritating for you, but for those around you. Vaporizers, on the other hand, don’t smell strongly because the vapor from them quickly dissolves into the air. This can help to prevent a strong smell from occurring and lingering around for quite a while even after you’re done smoking. You can also put them discreetly into a weed stash bag. 

They Cost Less

Vaporizers cost less because you don’t need to keep investing in new smoking materials. It’s one product that you just need to refill with cannabis each time you use it. Vaporizing is a great way to help you save money when trying to enjoy cannabis.

They Last Longer

As mentioned in the section above, vaporizers only require one product (the vaporizer) that you need to really make an investment in. Vaporizers often last for a while because they are made of high-quality materials. Because of this, vapors don’t break easily so you don’t have to worry about constantly having to invest in a new one.

You Can Use the Cannabis From Them in Edibles

A useful benefit that vaporizers have is that the cannabis you use in them can be recycled into edibles. Once you’re done inhaling the cannabis from the vaporizer, you can just remove it and mix it into a cooking or baking dish. This will not only help you save money, but can give you a great treat in the end.

Types of Vaporizers

There are 3 different types of vaporizers you’ll want to make sure you know about. Some vaporizers will help with oil and the others with wax. Here is a little more about them.


An oil vaporizer is intended to be used with a cannabis oil. Often these are cartomizers or clearomizers that you need to use.


This type of vaporizer requires you to put a wax melt into the vaporizer. It will then melt so you can vape.


If you’d like to have a combination of both an oil and wax vaporizer, you’ll want to look for a premium one. Premium vaporizers are often more expensive, but allow you to use both cannabis oil and wax safely in it.

How to Use a Vaporizer

Using a vaporizer is simple, but how to do so properly really just depends on the type of vaporizer you have. For this reason, it’s important to always read your vaporizer’s user manual before you use it. However, they all have a general set-up process.

The General Set-Up Process of Using a Vaporizer

  •     Read the User’s Manual

One of the most important steps is to first read your user’s manual. This will help you to make sure you’ve prepared your vaporizer properly for use.

  •     Plug it in or Put Batteries in it and Turn it on High

After reading your user’s manual, you’ll then want to plug it in or put some batteries in it. This really just depends on the type of vaporizer you invested in so be sure that you charge an electrically powered one or have enough batteries to use in a battery-operated vaporizer.

Once you plug it in or put the batteries in, you’ll then want to turn it on and to a high setting. This high setting will allow the vaporizer to heat up and burn/dissolve previous cannabis residue from it. This will in return give you a fresher taste with your new cannabis oil or wax.

  •     Put Your Cannabis Oil or Wax in and Let it Heat Up

Once your vaporizer has reached a high setting, you’ll then want to put your cannabis oil or wax into it. After doing so, you’ll want to wait a few seconds for the oil or wax to fully heat up. Often vaporizers can sense when the oil or wax has been put into it and will indicate with a sound or light when it’s a good time to start vaping.

  •     Inhale the Cannabis

Once the vaporizer has indicated that it’s time to do so, you can then start inhaling the cannabis. How you do so depends on your model so be sure to always check that beforehand. Usually you can flip the vaporizer’s lid off and then breathe through the special opening on it.

  •     Turn it Off and Clean it

Once you’re done inhaling the cannabis oil or wax, you’ll then want to turn your vaporizer off. After it has cooled down a bit, you’ll then want to clean it out to remove any large pieces or scents so the next vaping experience goes well.
