Vaporizing in the 21st Century
We’ve all heard about the health benefits of vaporizing for a while now. It’s better for the lungs than smoking, there is less combustion and so on. This has caused an explosion of vaporizer products on the market, particularly in the last few years.
Larger, desktop vaporizers have been a favorite among tokers for quite a while now, but like everything else in the technological world, vaporizers on the market get smaller and smaller every year.
Portable vaporizers come in many styles and colors. They can be used for dry herbs, wax and more. Everyone is on the go these days, in their cars with their smart phones. Portable vaporizers can come in handy just about anywhere because they are small and unobtrusive.
In fact, vaporizer pens and other assorted mobile vaporizers are just about the hottest products in the toker market today. It’s hard to go anywhere without seeing at least one person puffing on their pen.
There are also a lot of products that come closer to vaporizing than burning, making them “vaporizer-like.” One of these is the solar hand pipe, which uses a magnifying lens and the sun’s rays for combustion, but the combustion is at a much lower temperature.
Vaporizing is the future. Smaller pipes and water pipes will always be around, but the bulk of the toker product market in the coming years will be dominated by vaporizers, both the desktop variety and portable variety. The styles will multiply and each product will be more efficient than the last, and the bounds of smallness will be tested. How small can vaporizers get? Time will tell.
In the meantime, tokers can enjoy the endless variety of vaporizers already available.
