Basic Components of A Vaporizer

Vaporizers might be incredible pieces of technology, but there are actually simpler than you think. If you’re one of the many people who has been a little uncertain about how a vaporizer works, you aren’t alone. In fact, the mystery shrouding these futuristic devices has actually driven some people away. Since vaporizers are pretty great, we wanted to explain how vaporizers actually work so that you can gain a better understanding and decide if they are right for you. Vaporizers are an exceptionally convenient way to use cannabis, so read on to learn more.

The Body

All vaporizers offer some kind of basic shell that holds all of the components inside. These shells are often metallic in nature and can vary significantly depending on the actual features that the vaporizer offers the user. They can also be shaped differently for branding purposes.

The Battery

At the heart of every vaporizer is a battery. Whether you get a disposable vaporizer or invest in a long-term one, a battery is one of the most important parts of the pen. The battery will provide the charge that your vaporizer relies on to run itself. Without the battery, your cannabis or concentrate would never be heated and you would just be inhaling boring old air.

The Heating Chamber

Every vaporizer comes with a portion that allows you to provide the actual cannabis. These chambers can vary depending on whether your vaporizer uses flower or concentrate. Flower chambers tend to be larger since they need to be able to hold an entire bowl of cannabis. Concentrate-based vaporizers tend to have much smaller chambers since it doesn’t take up as much space in order to provide the same potency.

The Heater

Within every vaporizer, a battery-powered heater is present. This is responsible for heating up the actual cannabis or concentrates in order to release the THC. When the heater activates, it will make it possible for you to inhale the vapor. This is why some pens take a couple of tries before they actually release any of the contents when you use them.

The Mouthpiece

Every vaporizer is fitted with a mouthpiece that can be used to actually inhale the vapor. Mouthpieces can vary a lot by size and shape, with many pieces even offering custom options to improve your experience. These mouthpieces can help you to more easily access the cannabis within.


Vaporizers might be pretty futuristic, but that doesn’t mean that they are dangerous or risky. A good vaporizer is a perfect way to get your daily cannabis needs met without having to inhale harsh smoke or be stuck with the commitment of an edible. Many people are drifting towards vaporizers because they are easy to use, can hold a lot of THC, and offer more privacy when you are partaking. There are a lot of incredible vaporizers on the market, so don’t hesitate to explore to find one that is right for you.
