How Vaporizers are Changing Pot Culture

 How Vaporizers are Changing Pot Culture

How vaporizers are changing pot culture?  Well, cannabis smokers of yesteryear have an indelible imprint on our minds – long hair, often bearded, a phat joint made from hurriedly assembled cigarette papers and spun into a “dovetail joint” as John Lennon once reminded us in his Glass Onion song. There are those of course that opted for the stronger hit and inhaled through a bong or a hookah pipe. But whatever their preference, most of us remember (or still indulge) the wicked weed smoking culture of our misspent youth. However, in recent years the culture of pot smoking has begun a kind of transformation.How Vaporizers are Changing Pot Culture

Studies have found that vaping is nowhere near as bad for you as smoking, whether it’s nicotine or cannabis. Some may have noticed how it is that these studies are quietly swept away in the back pages of some Marijuana Monthly or Weed Weekly magazine.

Pot smokers or medical marijuana users do tend to feel apprehensive about smoking but there is a change in the air. Medical marijuana users and potheads are slowly beginning to vape rather than sit around in some ring passing the bong and listening to the Grateful Dead. Don’t get me wrong, cannabis consumers still like to listen to unimaginably great music and get stoned, it’s just that nowadays one is more likely to see a vape pen, and an ingestion of pot while listening to Radiohead or the Manic Street Preachers.

Pot culture is changing and vape pens are at the forefront of that shift. If you want to vape and discover what the pot culture of tomorrow is going to be like, then why not give it a try? The decision you have to make is whether to have a desktop or a portable vaporizer.

Do not think that owning a desktop vaper is unhealthy and cumbersome in its sheer size and design. They make look big and gruesome but do you ever see a couple who own a house with a wine cellar being labelled as a pair of alcoholics? How Vaporizers are Changing Pot Culture

Portable vaping for new age stoners requires you to mill the cannabis weed into fine powder (use a grinder for this task), pour the powder into the heat chamber in the vape pen and allow around 40 seconds to heat up, then vape. Just remember if you are at a party or some barbecue, you may well be expected to pass it around the gathered crowd. And that’s how vaporizers are changing pot culture.

Why Are Vaporizers Better?

Why Are Vaporizers Better?

Why are vaporizers better? Well, during a morning smoke break at a warehouse company I once worked for, I noticed a smoker wearing a plaster on his arm. I enquired what the injury was. He shocked me and told of his quest to try and quit smoking and the sticky plaster on his arm was actually a nicotine patch. My next question to him was obvious: why smoke when you have a nicotine patch?

why are vaporizers better?

One of the failings of the nicotine patch and the nicotine candy tablets, used to give a quitter a dose of the weed without the harmful smoke, is that it assumes smokers are addicted to nicotine like a junkie is addicted to heroin or cocaine – only it’s not quite as straightforward as that.


Often it is just the art of smoking and the associated habits connected to it that make smoking such a hard habit to break. Vape pens and portable vapes tick boxes that smokers have been asking for since the seventies, when smoking was first considered to harmful to health.

When I once asked an ex-smoker what she really missed about smoking, she surprised me by saying that it was not the nicotine or the cigarette but the socializing during the smokers’ break in the courtyard at work.

Often at most large companies there is a small group of smokers gathered discreetly at some outside walled area, far away from the healthy why are vaporizers better?non-smokers, who will puff away on the wicked weed, talk trot, gossip and bang the world to rights while the rest of the workforce get on with the daily grind and sneer their noses at the smell of tobacco on the breath upon your return to the desk.

Portable vaporizers are becoming a common sight in the workplace and the advantages of the vape pens are remarkable. Vaporizers pen users get to have a “smoke” or a vape, hear all the gossip and latest office news, enjoy the act of bringing a pen to the mouth and inhaling and still can return to the desks with no sneering dirty looks from the non-smoking lobby. You see, vape pens do not leave any nasty smells on your clothes or mouth and, moreover, they are a lot healthier for you than an ordinary cigarette.

Vape pens are also cheap as the ongoing cost of the device is considerably lower than a pack of 20 top-brand cigarettes, a lot less!  And this is why vaporizers are better!

What Are Portable Vaporizers?

What Are Portable Vaporizers?

Portable Vaporizers are battery enabled devices that energize active ingredients in liquids, dry botanical, wax or oils by producing a vapor that is similar to smoke, yet not smoke.  In this process, there is no combustion, as temperatures are typically below 400 degrees Fahrenheit to produce the vapor.

Let’s clear up some confusion out there.  When most people think of e-cigs or portable vaporizers, they think of the  picture on  the left, lumping everything into one category. It is important to differentiate between the portable vaporizer (s) out there.

Portable Vaporizer Options

Here is a quick summation:

  • E-cigarette:  Left side of picture. Typically found only in gas stations or convenient stores; usually disposable with prefilled cartridges made by Rj Renolds and others. Usually not found in vape shops. (i.e. Blu)
  • Pen Style Vaporizer:  In the left of picture.  These contain electronics for regulation of power level, typically priced under $100, and use atomizers to produce vapor, via a cotton wick or wick-less versions and are rechargeable and refillable with e-juice.
  • Mods:  Top middle of picture. For use with rebuild-able atomizers, interchangeable tanks, provide greater temperature control, and can produce a lot more vapor and more flavor.  Priced $100 and above.

Advanced Personal Vaporizers:

Fall into 2 categories

Portable Vaporizer:

  • For use with dry botanicals like tobacco, aromatherapy herbs or legalized marijuana. Some can additionally use wax or oils.  Typically fit in palm of your hand. Battery life anywhere form 45 min continuous use to hour and half.  Some afford pass through charging (can vape while charging). Temperate control can be preset or others have more precise settings. They do not use e-juice liquids and typically use conduction heating (explained more here).

Desktop Vaporizer:

  • Similar to Portables as they use dry botanicals  like tobacco, aromatherapy herbs or legalized marijuana and some wax or oils. Biggest difference here is use of convection heating, which requires more energy, but provides more even heat and better vapor production and taste. Not portable due to energy constraints. (need wall outlet).


These are the different types of vaporizers out there. Hopefully now you have better idea of the differences if trying to select a vaporizer for personal use, were not clear on the topic, and/or  now feel more knowledgeable about Portable Vaporizers.

Mardi Gras 2016

Mardi Gras 2016

Mardi Gras is February 9th, 2016.  Seems a bit early. But I am sure like most of you, been there done that.   Copious amounts of people, libations, and beads…and other things…Creole food and King cakes of course!  That said, have you ever wondered about the history of it all?music legends park nola

Mardi Gras Origins

The origins of Mardi Gras are traced back to medieval Europe in the 17th and 18th centuries.  Flowing from Rome and Venice eventually to the French House of Bourbons.  French explorer Pierre le Moyne, Sieur d’lberville, when arriving around 60 miles south of the future La Nouvelle Orleans, named his site Pointe du Mardi Gras, as it was March 3rd, 1699, Marty Gras day.  Did you know that Mardi Gras literally translates to “Fat Tuesday”? Now you know.

Mardi Gras Colors

The majestic colors you see, the purple, green and gold started in 1872 by a group of businessmen honoring the visitation of Russian Grand Duke Alexis Romanoff who funded a daytime parade call creole pasta final“Rex”, or Latin for King.  They used his family colors as the official colors of the Carnival parade.  Purple represented justice; gold signified power; and green meant faith.

The next year, after Alex left, the day parade continued, and the song that was played , “If Ever I Cease to Love” the year before, became the Mardi Gras anthem.  Rex, became the theme and not only the King of Carnival but the Monarch of Merriment who’s motto is Pro Bono public, “For the common good”.  Don’t they always say something like that?

Fat Tuesdy, Des Rois 

From Bourbon to Frenchman Street, from the Three Muses to Mr. B’s Bistro, there is so much to do and  see  when you go down to visit New Orleans.   What’s great is that I just returned from a weekend stay there lodging at the hotel Monte Leone, right in the heart of the French Quarter.

The rooms were great and the hotel is renown for their rotating Carousel bar, and a sometime frequent ghostly appearance form it’s former inhabitants.

Either way, in celebration of this century old pagan holiday, Vape Royally will offer a 10% discount code on all items including portable vaporizers, desktops vaporizers, pen style vaporizers and more in our store through Fat Tuesday.  Just enter the code  “Mardi 2016” and your on the way to Vape Royally.  Like Rex, the King of Marty Gras!!!

Vaporizer Options

Vaporizer Options

There are a few different kinds of vaporizer options to choose from, and many vaporizers within each category, but these are usually at very good prices for the technology you’re getting. You can consider if a portable vaporizer, vaporizer pen or desk top vaporizer would be the ideal choice for you. volcano digital

Vapor Delivery Systems

When you think about the variety of vapor delivery systems available, temperature regulation, and fan assisted hits, there are some great deals around on these units. The $150-500 price range has plenty of vaporizer options, including the Vapir Prima Vaporizer at around $250. This is a really neat portable vaporizer, with simple operation and really nice quality results. With a good battery life too, the Vapir Prima is really worth considering. For a similar price, the desk top vaporizer Arizer Extreme Q includes features such as multiple vaping options and the ability to use it with bags and whips.

Portable Vaporizers

Again, it depends on what you’re looking for, as the desk top vaporizers are far less portable. Portable vaporizers such as the Vapir Prima Vaporizer are small, compact and powerful. They come in all different shapes, sizes and styles. They fit in vapir prima allyour pocket and will efficiently vaporize dry herb. The ability to work with wax or oils can be an extra bonus, and not all of them will do this. Standard portable vaporizers typically have a base and a straw, they don’t usually have whips or bags like some of the popular desktop vaporizers.


Desk Top Vaporizers

If you want to spend more on a desk top vaporizer, for around $600 you can find The Herbalizer, which can also vape wax and oil concentrates. This unit can also fill your room with vapor, and also allows you to vape via balloon or whip. There are easy squeeze valves in the balloons to prevent leaks. The Volcano, again at around $500-600 is one of the classic desktop units on the market. The Volcano itself, a piece that holds the herb, and the bag are herbalizer 6all you need to operate the Volcano – it’s extremely easy to use. The bag mouthpiece is the best of any vaporizer, just press in with your lips and inhale. The bags are high quality and offer about 5 hits when full. If you care about efficiency in your vaporizer and making your herb last then there is no doubt about it, Volcano is one of the best. For many people, however, the ease of use and affordability of the small portable vaporizer format such as the Vapir Prima will make it an ideal choice.

Vaping and the Doubting Thomas Brigade

Vaping and the Doubting Thomas Brigade

Electronic cigarettes have become more common with every passing month since the “quit smoking” lobby got their campaign trail running into overdrive from the start of the 21st century. Smokers and ex-smokers have taken to vaping in a big way and although there are many anti-smoking campaigners claiming that e-cigs are in decline, they are not seeing the bigger picture: and that is vaporizers such as the Vapir Prima, Davini Ascent, Vapium Summit and magic flight vaporizer models are becoming as big a hit as those standard e-cigs that we used back in 2014.

A Growing Revolution

E-juice manufacturers are seeing a growing industry bloom before their very eyes, because it’s simply better to get in on the act of vaping rather than smoking. However, there are still those who fear that the very act of vaping will lead a vapour to the wicked weed.

Electronic cigarettes are going through something of a revolution. When vaping was first becoming mainstream news, it would not have been hard to buy the traditional electronic cigarette from a gas station or 99c store and refill the empty cartridge as and when necessary. But even though the industry is very young and in its infancy, it is moving forward at pace.

The Future of Vaping

The traditional e-cigs which look almost identical to a standard tobacco cigarette is no longer the best seller. Suddenly, those who like to vape are heading for more exotic brands of electronic cigarette using. The Volcano Vaporizer, Vapir Prima and Vapium Summit are selling faster than the vapor trails can blow down the high street in a 50 mph gale.

The future of vaping is now heading towards the advanced personal vaporizer market. Mods can be rather expensive but they are coming down in price. As one line or product thrives, it begins to sell more and manufacturers begin making more. This business practice has an economic outcome that can only be great for the consumer – lower prices for mods. Mods are used with atomizers and tend to satisfy the craze for vaping as so much is produced. This helps the ex-smoker really feel the experience of smoking, only with vapour and not smoke.

There are still those who claim that electronic cigarettes are an unknown quantity but most e-juice and mods dealers will tell you, they only use about four ingredients within the liquid, and you will not find any of them on Mars.

Conduction vs Convection

Conduction vs Convection

What is Conduction vs Convection heating?  How does it work?  How does this even apply to vaporizers?  Portable, desktop, and Pen-style vapes the like. You may be saying…I thought an e-cig was an e-cig, and a vaporizer, well…I don’t know. I give up.  That’s why we are here.  For those of you reading this that have years of vaporizing experience, this may seem trivial.  Go back to your tasty vaping, as will I as I write this.  But for those who are seeking knowledge, please read on.

Conduction vs Convection Made Simple

Let start with a simple diagram, for those visual learners out there. As you can see, here is conduction vs convection heating in an easy to understand diagram:

As the above diagram illustrates, conduction heating is where the botanicals in the heating chamber are heated from a source that is directly touching the botanical chamber.  In convection heating, the heat source is distance apart from the chamber and hot air is passed over the chamber to achieve heating of the herb, either by a forced air fan, or by manually pulling the air through the chamber via a whip or similar device.

Pro and Cons of Conduction vs Convection

Which is the best?  Well, like in life there are pro’s and con’s to both. See with conduction heating, it is a  simpler, and more energy efficient process becuase literary there is less space between the heating element and the herb chamber. What’s more, is that  based upon current battery technology, its affords for longer vape sessions to occur on one battery charge.  On average, this equates to about an hour of continuous use.

Some of the con’s of conduction heating are that  the botanical can sometimes not heat evenly, with the necessity to stir the botanical chamber during a session to achieve even heating of the plant material.  It also means that with direct contact of the heat source, there can be a greater probability of combusting the herb, which is what we are trying to avoid. This probability however is lowered with more accurate temperature control in higher end devices like the Arizer Air, The Vapir Prima, and The Vapium Summit, and others. See, the difference in heating distance from heat source to botancial chamger directly correlates to the difference in vapor production, vapor quality and overall taste. But please note, these differences that we speak of are noticeable, but not so huge to the extent that it is night and day.  That said, there will always be those who may differ to agree.

Now on to Convection heating, where the heating source is apart from the botanical chamber.  Hot air is now passed over and through the heating chamber it to achieve the temperate rise without combustion, releasing the desired active compounds.  With this method, the botanical is heated more evenly, which, as stated earlier,  some say produce a better vapor quality and taste. A few portable desktop vapes worth mentioning that were recently released are the Crafty Vaporizer, and the Mighty Vaporizer from Volcano.  Both use the convection heating style, but differ not only in size but also battery life.  The Mighty has an additional built in batter for longer vaporization use on one charge.  From our experience, yes there is a difference in taste and vapor production in these portable vapes, but it is minimal.  One of the biggest cons of this convection process is that is extremely energy intensive, which why you see it mostly implemented in desk top vaporizers where you have access to a continuous power source…until of course the huge Coronal Mass Ejection hits wiping out the power grid. Ha Ha! J.k. That’s for another blog post.

Like we mentioned, the technology of conduction heating is primarily used in  portable vapes due the the current limitations of lithium ion battery technology.  Yet there are leaders at the fore front, like Storz and Bickel, with the Mighty vaporizer and Crafty vaporizer from volcano, that use the convection process and do provide good battery life. As we move into the future though, we will see these battery use times go up for use on one charge with the development of Nano technology and the discovery of Graphene.

Which One Should I Choose?

Some things to think about here when your are making a decision on what portable vaporizer (either conduction or convection)  to buy are: How quickly does the vaporizer charge and discharge with normal use? Can you use the device while it’s charging? How quickly does the vaporizer reach the desired vaping temperature? How much control do you have over the temperature settings?

Currently, most rechargeable battery vaporizers need anywhere from 1-3 minutes of warm up time to reach your desired vaporization temperature.

Some of the newest portable vaporizers, for example, the Vapir Prima (conduction heating), released in September of 2015, can reach desired vaping temp in a minute or less.  We have tested the Vapir Prima, which uses lithium ion technology, and confirmed that  when set to its highest temperature setting, it takes 52 seconds to warm up from a completely cold start  in an ambient environment temperature of 67 degrees fahrenheit.  Clearly in colder temperatures, this will take more time and use more power.

For more information check out the vaporizer forums, retailer website reviews, or even the manufactures website regarding heating style and battery life.  Or contact us here!


We are excited here at Vape Royally to be part of this expanding business of vaporization.  And we want to share information about these devices so as to lower the misconceptions that exist because of a lack of knowledge, or access to said knowledge. So that you have more information to make a better informed decision. Is that not what it is all about?

Either way, we hope you learned something.  Let us know what you think.  Can you tell a difference from the two heating styles convection vs conduction?  Which vaporizer do you like best in each category?  We want to know.  Cheers!







Portable Vaporizer Guide 2015

Portable Vaporizer Guide 2015

With the proliferation of portable vaporizers entering the market in recent times, it can be very hard to choose which one is right for you. There is a number of factors to consider, and you may not even know where to begin. That’s why we are going to walk you through some of the basics so that in the end, you can choose the best portable vaporizer for you, in this Portable Vaporizer Guide 2015!

vapir rise top pic

First let’s discuss some of the general range of features and corresponding limitations to bear in mind whilst making your choice.
One of the first orders of business for you newbies out there is to understand what vaporization is, right? For those who already get it, hold tight, just a quick learning curve to surpass.

Vaporization is essentially very simple. No burning, no fire, no matches or lighter. You simply heat some air to around 200-390 degrees, then inhale through your well ground botanicals. When we say botanicals, this can be a wide variety of extract, some more legal than other (depending on your state law), yet all delivering their own tasty aromatic vapors. It’s important to note that at this heat, only the active essential compounds such as oils, terpenes, and cannabinoids aerosolize from the botanical. That’s right, you heard it, no flame.


This vaporization process is achieved in a varied number of methods. The heating source can be achieved by either using butane gas, or battery (rechargeable). Other factors to take into consideration is the portable vaporizer’s design – is it sturdy solid construction or merely functional without any eye appeal? Also, what kind of inhalation method is used, forced air or just manual inhalation? Other things to consider is ease of use and cleaning maintenance? More on this later.

Again, in review, we are describing portable vaporizers, which means we are referring to handheld devices that operate using a cordless heat supply (battery or butane gas) and can be carried easily in your hand and pocket.


One must evaluate the portable vaporizer aesthetics (what it looks like) as an important part of the decision making process. Is it sleek, practical, and portable? Or is it clunky, and so big that you just can’t see this vape fitting your desired style of portable vaping, let alone fitting in your pocket? 

Discreetness is another factor. Does the vape come with a carry case? And will you feel comfortable taking it out in public, and or surreptitiously taking a taste while on your way walking down the sidewalk, in public, wherever you may be headed? Basically, is the device stealthy? Attractive? Which attribute is the most important to you?

Build Materials and Design

The manufacturing materials used in your portable vaporizer can range from wood, various types of plastic, to brushed aluminum, stainless steel, glass, and even a combination of all. Think about what you may prefer when you feel the vape your hand. Does it feel well built? Or is it light and feels cheaply made?
How the vape is designed, without a doubt, is a huge factor in the portable vaporizer’s stylishness, sleekness, its ease of use and how easy it is to clean. From how the device turns on, to knowing where the battery life is at, along with how precise you can control the vapes temperature can vary from device to device and are important things to consider when making your choice.

Behind the Scenes

What happens inside the portable vaporizer is where the real story happens. Does your portable vaporizer use convection or conduction for its heating process? Let’s go into some detail about each to get a better understanding what we are talking about.

Conduction vs. Convection Heating

As the below diagram illustrates, conduction heating is where the botanicals are heated from a source that is directly touching the botanical chamber, versus convection heating where the heat source is apart from the chamber and hot air is passed over the chamber to achieve heating of the herb.


Which is the best? Well, like in life, everything is trade off. With conduction heating, it is more simple, more effective and based upon current batter technology, affords for longer vape sessions to occur on one battery charge; typically about an hour on continuous use. Yet, with conduction heating the botanical can sometimes not heat evenly, with the necessity to stir during a session to achieve even heating of the plant material which correlates directly to vapor production quality and taste. Please note, these differences that we speak of are noticeable, but not huge differences in taste quality. Although some may differ to agree.

With Convection heating, the heating source is apart from the botanical chamber, and hot air is passed over it to achieve the desired outcome. With this method, the botanical is heated more evenly, which some say produce a better vapor quality and taste. From experience, yes there is a difference, but minimal. The con is that this process is energy intensive, which why you see it implemented in most desk top vaporizers.
That said, portable vapes like the Mighty vaporizer from volcano, use the convection process and do provide greater battery life, around an hour for continuous vaping.

Some things to think about here are: How quickly does the portable vaporizer charge and discharge with normal use? Can you use the device while it’s charging? How quickly does the portable vaporizer reach the desired vaping temperature?

Clearly, while vaping at home with total access to electricity not a problem, right? But what if you want to take it away for a weekend, camping, hiking, or other; the amount of time you can keep it charged will be a bigger factor. Optional car adapters and USB chargers are standard upgrades that are available for these situations.

On average, most rechargeable battery vapes need anywhere from 1-3 minutes of warm up time to reach your desired vaporization temperature. Some of the newest portable vaporizers, for example, the Vapir Prima, released in September of 2015, can reach desired vaping temp in a minute or less. We have tested the Vapir Prima, which uses lithium ion technology, and found that when set to its highest temperature setting, it takes 52 seconds to warm up from a completely cold start in an ambient environment temperature of 67 degrees Fahrenheit.

On the contrary, there are those that chose to use butane gas it because of its fast heating capabilities, it’s inexpensive, and portable. However, some users are not partial to the un-burned residual gas that can sometimes be present. Some examples of this type of portablee vaporizer is the iolite v2 portable vaporizer that uses Butane for nearly immediate heat.

Maintenance Cleaning

Residue from vaping can be incredibly sticky and almost impossible to remove with just water. One needs to use Isopropyl alcohol (ISO) and a cotton swab to maintain a clean vape. Some vaporizers may have harder to reach areas based upon design that can shorten the the life of the device if not cleaned properly.

“The Draw” of a portable vaporizer can deteriorate if a vape is not cleaned properly – especially any meshes or filters that the oily hot air passes through. So be sure to keep your vape properly cleaned affording good air flow and little obstructions allowing for free flow of the warm, tasty vapor.

How to obtain information on cleaning a particular portable vaporizer? Check out the manufacturer recommendations, reviews on distributor websites, and even online forums.

One other thing to mention here is that you get what you pay for. There is allot of competition in this business so be advised. Just remember this simple rule, if you are getting too good of a deal, then it’s probably too good to be true. For example, there are some third party websites that offer rock bottom prices, like EBay for example. Just be sure that these resellers are authorized to resell that product. Also, if the product is priced well below the MAP, (manufacturer asking price) then you product may be a knock off and or the manufacturer will not honor the warranty as authorized users have to adhere to these pricing rules and more, in order to stay in good standing with manufacturer.
And don’t just ask the re-seller. Go to the manufacturer’s site to verify the seller is listed with the manufacturer. If not, there that’s probably the reason why they can offer such rock bottom prices.

Durability and Longevity

How well built is your portable vaporizer? Have you read on forums or customer reviews about any weak points? As mentioned earlier, your retailer should have information about the warranty for the device.


For example, the Vapir Prima, has a 5 year limited warranty from the date of purchase. This shows that the company is willing to stand behind the device. Are you getting that from 3rd party sellers? Probably not. There are allot of clones out there from China, so ones needs to make sure that your retailer has gone through the proper distribution channels to obtain its merchandise. And if for some reason you loose a part, or drop your unit and something breaks, make sure that you can purchase replacements parts for situations that are out of the scope of the warranty (like dropping and breaking the unit).

You’re the Decision Maker

For most of us, money is an object. So by learning from some of the information listed above on how your portable vaporizer works along with the decision making criteria questions to ask yourself about portable vaporizers, you can research with a greater knowledge about what you’re looking for, determining which portable vaporizer falls into your budgeted spend, with the desired looks, performance, and durability you desire.

You may even want to become a collector of portable vaporizers. Each one has it distinctive design, sleekness, and practical application based upon your needs.

In Conclusion

We feel that Vaporizing is a personal and intimate experience. It is definitely a lifestyle choice. Whether you’re a newbie, seasoned in vaporizing, just winding down from work or have a prescription for the good stuff, hopefully some of the decision making criteria and information listed above will be useful for you to make an informed decision on choosing a portable vaporizer.  But more importantly, that you thoroughly enjoy the your vaping experience!


Hope that helps. We would love hear from you and we appreciate your feedback! Feel free to reach out (even, anonymously). Thanks!


Everyday Someone Will Ask About Vaping

Everyday Someone Will Ask About Vaping

In 2015, it may not yet be a household term but vaping is on the threshold of becoming vastly popular. Perhaps even more so than the smoking generation of the 1950s when some British television programs even showed chat show hosts, performing musicians and newsreaders lighting up a cigarette while entertaining the masses. And yes, nobody batted so much as an eyelid.

Vaping is the act of inhaling vapour from an electronic cigarette, vaporizer or mod using dry herbs, waxy substances, or e-juice. Inside the liquids there are essentially two types of glycerine: vegetable and propylene. Artificial flavouring is then added to give the user an enhanced aroma and taste of the vapour.

The Future of Vaping

In the near future, it will be common to see people gathered at huts outside restaurants, pubs, clubs and bars and even walking down the street vaping with mods or fancy e-cigs that resemble a walkie-talkie rather than a smoking tool. The Vapir Prima, Magic Flight and the Davinci Ascent vaporizer will soon be common sights across public places, as ex-smokers make moves to quit smoking, improve their health and start vaping.

Are there Benefits of Vaping against Smoking?

Of course there are; of the many benefits that vaping has over smoking, the one that stands out is your health. The likelihood of getting lung cancer or other smoking-related illnesses is well over 400 times lower when vaping compared to smoking. And just think of all those dirty ash trays that smell even after they have been emptied out.
Many ex-smokers and current smokers complain of burns receive from their cigarette butts. This has been a particularly difficult problem with roll up smokers, whose tiny smoke gets to the end so quickly, it catches the smoker out and burns the two fingers (usually the thumb and the index finger) holding the end.

Cost Effective in the End

When you look at a catalogue or an online website selling products like the Davinci Ascent, Magic Flight and Vapir Prima, you’ll be forgiven for gasping at the cost of these products. Yes, they will seem to be high at first, but there are two important things to remember: firstly, you are eliminating the combustion in its entirety, thereby theoretically reducing the associated affects of breathing in smoke; and secondly, the initial cost to you will soon be overtaken by the amount of tobacco you buy, often within two to three months of regular smoking.
