How to choose your vaporizer - which ones are covered?

Our tips for choosing and using the right vaporizers

Did you know about the benefits of vaporizers when consuming your medical cannabis? There are many methods of consumption and today, we’d like to introduce you to one that’s quickly increasing in popularity - the vaporizer.

These devices use convection or conduction technology to vaporize your cannabis and control the heat to ensure your product does not heat to the point of smoking. A vaporizer allows for consistent heating of the product and allows you to control the device’s temperature settings.

How to choose your vaporizer 

Choosing a vaporizer can be a challenging decision as there are many products available on the market, but we’re here to help. To find the perfect vape for you, ask yourself the following questions:

  • Do you require a portable vaporizer or a stationary device? This will help narrow down the options that work for you.
  • How often will you be using your vape? Maybe once a month, several times a week or daily? This will help you determine which high quality device, at a variety of price points, is best suited for your needs.

F.A.Q.

Why and how to sterilize your vaporizer before first use

Did you know that you should sterilize your new vaporizer before using it the first time? There’s often still manufacturing residue inside which you certainly don’t want to inhale. To properly sterilize the device, turn your vaporizer on at the highest temperature and wait 2 minutes for a minimum of 3 times to allow the excess residue to dissipate.

What is the right temperature for vaping?

Volcano Vaporizer - Solace Health

Most vaporizers come with handy temperature control. We recommend beginning the session at 190° Celsius to get a thinner and less harsh vapor. Then, raise the temperature 10° Celsius at a time. Be aware that the medical benefits of your cannabis will wear off over 226° Celsius. The maximum temperature shouldn’t exceed 240° Celsius.
