What are vapes?

A vape is an inhalation device that can vaporize dry and wet ingredients without burning them.
Typically, there are two main types of ingredients that we can use with vapes:

  • Dry Ingredients: As the name suggests, these ingredients are dry. Vapes use heating chambers to vaporize ingredients such as dry herbs, wax concentrates, and oils. It is not unusual for people to use dry herb vapes for medicinal and recreational purposes where legal. I will discuss this more in-depth below.
  • Wet Ingredients: We use these ingredients in the more common types of vapes; e-liquid vapes. Manufacturers use different chemicals to create an e-liquid or vape juice (you can find our list of the best vape juices here). These juices then get soaked into the cotton around the coil. In turn, a person then vaporizes it and inhales. People change hardware setups (like box mods or electronic cigarettes) and different PG/VG balances to try and create larger plumes of vapor, something that isn’t a concern for dry herb vape users. I will talk about wet vaporizers a little more below.

Different types of vapes

  • Dry Herb Vaporizers: As mentioned previously, dry herb vaporizers use dry herbs plant extracts. Putting these ingredients into ceramic heating chambers offers a much purer and cleaner experience.

One of the biggest selling points and reasons people use dry herb vaporizers lies within the heating chambers. Dry herb vaporizers have eliminated the need for combustion, removing many of the harmless chemicals that combustion results in, there have been many studies suggesting a significantly lower number of carcinogens and harmless chemicals compared to other dry herb consumption methods.

Studies have shown that these toxins can be equally dangerous as cigarette smoke. The best way to avoid them is through vaping since they get vaporized at a lower temperature.

Main types of dry herb vaporizers are: portable dry herb vaporizers, vape pens, and desktop vaporizers.

You can expect a dry herb vaporizer to cost you anywhere from $30 – $300, with the more expensive devices hosting impressive technology to make your experience even better.

  • E-liquid Vapes: These vapes come in many different shapes and sizes, typically; an e-liquid vape uses a coil or atomizer to soak an e-juice. The coil or atomizer will then become heated which results in the soaked up liquid to become vaporized, creating huge plumes of vapor.

The most popular form of e-liquid vape has to be the sub-ohm box mods. The name comes from the resistance of the coil being lower than 1-ohm allowing soaked up liquid to be vaporized much quicker, resulting in much larger quantities of vapor. Typically, sub-ohm vapes have a lot more maintenance and responsibility, with all the liquid refills and hardware changes being down to you. Sub-ohm vapes are mainly used in competitive vaping something that I’ll discuss a little more later.

Additionally, the most basic type of vapes uses e-liquids. Cigalikes or E-Cigs use an atomizer to vape liquids. However, The scale of them is much smaller compared to sub-ohm vaporizers. E-cigs typically use a cartridge or capsule that contains a one-time use atomizer. You will use a single cartridge which comes with liquid already filled; use the device for about 500 pulls then remove the cartridge and replace it.

E-liquid vaporizers are by far the most diverse market, and you can get devices anywhere from $9.99 to $500! If you are looking to get an e-liquid vape then you will want to work out if sub-ohm is the route for you.

  • Wax & Concentrate Vapes: Hosting much the same hardware and technology as dry herb vaporizers, wax and concentrate vapes heat waxes and concentrates to high temperatures resulting in them vaporizing into nothing. When it comes to wax and concentrate vapes, we commonly refer to them as dab pens.

This is one of the cleanest methods for vaping as close to 100% of wax will vaporize when using the device. Wax and concentrates are typically more condensed versions of dry herb that allows for a different experience when vaporized. When a dry herb is compressed enough, oil will begin to appear, and this oil is then collected and turned into wax.

Wax vapes typically hold a stealthier look with the chambers being hidden to allow maximum hold of temperature when using the device. Dab pens produce a lot less vapor than other forms of vaporizers, with the flavor and intensity being the main reason people use these pens. You can expect a dab pen to have an extremely clear and satisfying flavor with a thick but small amount of vapor production. Wax pens operate at the same temperatures as dry herb vapes.

You can expect a dab pen to cost around $20 – $200. There is a huge amount of selection on the market, with many pens offering a stealthier approach, with some offering a larger chamber to allow more wax.

Other Things to Consider in Your Perfect Vape

The size of the vaping industry has grown significantly, with many different collections of people coming together to share experiences and their compassion for the devices. In this section, we will take a look at the most common aspects of vaping and the different communities you can expect to find.

  • Competitive/Social Vaping: As mentioned previously, competitive and social vaping are by far the largest vaping communities. Many enthusiasts get together to share their abilities to create the biggest plumes of vapor, best tricks, and hardware setups.

Competitive vapors or more commonly known as “cloud chasers” use sub-ohm vapes which refer to a coil resistance lower than 1-ohm. This allows them to vaporize liquid in the coil at a much faster rate, resulting in the large plumes of vapor. Many expeditions and events are hosted all over the world that let cloud chasers meet up and show off their skills. These events also see a huge number of brands and manufacturers promoting their latest hardware.

To get the kind of clouds most sub ohm vapers expect comes down to choosing the right wattage to set the vaporizer. It isn’t important to be an electrician with a deep knowledge of electrical terms, but a basic understanding of watts should prove helpful.
These events will continue to grow and expand, and it is clear that they are a huge part of the vaping industry and they will be here to stay!

  • Medicinal Vaping: Another aspect of vaping that is common in countries and states that have legalization of marijuana. Where legal, people are starting to use vaporizers for their dry herbs rather than the traditional combustion method.

Marijuana is used medicinally in many countries around the world, with plenty more hopping on the bandwagon. It is clear that vaping has a lot fewer health implications to worry about.

Finding the best vape for you

There are many steps to follow to find the best vape for you, they come in loads of different shapes and sizes with plenty of purposes. It is important you fully understand vaping and the health implications it implies. To put it bluntly, vaping can be dangerous. Follow the steps below to find out which vape is for you and the best way to start!

Identify your reason for vaping: First of all, you need to understand the reason you want to start vaping. Each type of vape has a different method and results. Here are the most common reasons for vaping and which vape to pick depending on your choice.

  • Nicotine Addiction: This is the most common reason people vape. E-liquids come in many different measurements of nicotine, ranging from 0mg to 12mg. If you are looking to vape as a tool for your nicotine addiction then looking into E-cigs or e-liquid vaporizers could be the best option for you. Additionally, using e-liquid vaporizers can help you control your nicotine consumption; eventually working your way down to nicotine free vaping. Quitting smoking cold turkey can lead to some uncomfortable nicotine withdrawal symptoms. By choosing vaping, those symptoms can largely be avoided as long as the body is getting the proper dose of nicotine while trying to wean off.
  • Social Aspects: If you are looking to start vaping to take part in the competitive and social aspects, then sub-ohm vaping is the best choice for you. This is a branch of vaping in the e-liquid vape category. Sub-ohm vapes are adapted for larger vapor production. People who sub-ohm vape resort to juices with 0mg of nicotine so that their social vaping won’t lead to a nicotine addiction. However, this is not the only addictive element of vaping; It is still common for people to be addicted to the act of vaping and social aspects.
  • Medicinal/Recreational Marijuana: Although not as common as e-liquid vaping, dry herb vaping still has its fair share of users. In countries where marijuana is legal for medicinal and recreational purposes, people are starting to use dry herb vaporizers rather than the traditional combustion methods. If you use dry herbs, then this will be the best option for you, with the ability to vape without tobacco it certainly has a lot less harmful chemicals.

Starter Kits: Now you have a better understanding of which types of vapes are for what purposes, you will be in a position to start looking at the best vapes for you. It is recommended to go for a starter kit, to begin with, each of the vape types offers starter kits to help to get you started. In the articles listed above, you will find some of the best vape kits for the types of vaporizers, be sure to check them out!

Summary: After reading this article you probably have a much greater knowledge of the world of vaping and what it has to offer you. I said this before, and I will mention it again just to be clear; vaping is not 100% safe, it still has health implications that you should fully understand. Be sure to take the time to read some of the other articles listed above, and they will further help with understanding vaping fully.
