The glass wand and whip work in unison in order to function properly. It is the most crucial part of a vaporizer. The herbs are vaporized while in the glass piece. The herbs are heated the use of a stainless steel screen, which is where the herbs are placed. The heating elements for these wands can be used with either hands free connection or the traditional connection.
There are only three alternatives of the Vaporizer Glass Wands wand that are worthy of mentioning. They include the hemp wick, the butane lighter and the herb irons. The hemp wick is made of hemp fibers. The hemp fibers are naturally produced from the hemp stalk. The fibers are like a thread. Hemp is taxonomically classified as a cannabis plant. This makes the production of hemp in Canada to be regulated by Health Canada. Producers are only allowed to plant certified seeds. The hemp wick is a good alternative to the glass wand because residue does not stick on it like glass on the wand. The hemp wick does not burn at high temperatures. This means that the plant material will produce a smooth vapor, which will not strain your lungs while you inhale. On the down side the hemp does not burn completely which brings up the question if carbon monoxide is produced while it combusts.
The second alternative is the butane lighter. The lighter has its pros and cons while using it. One of the advantages is that the butane will burn completely and produce water and carbon dioxide. The letter will also burn at a higher temperature. This ensures that most of the active compounds in the herb are released into the vapor. Some people say that the chemical butane will have an effect on your health and that sometimes they can taste the butane in the vapor. If the butane is not completely burns and it escapes, it can cause asphyxia or drowsiness
Last but not least is the herb irons. It uses a ceramic element for heating. The herb iron is advanced and easy to use as it is activated by pressing a button. It does not take much time before the ceramic element reaches optimum vaporizing temperature. To deactivate the herb iron you simply stop pressing the button. If properly used, the ceramic can last a long time before it burns out. The herb iron is not complicated to use and is not as expensive as the butane lighter and does not produce toxic gases. The downside of the herb iron is that it can get extremely hot and it will burn the herbs or blend. Others have complained that the vapor produced has some kind of metallic taste. That is really unpleasant
Well, there you have it, three of the best alternatives when it comes to Vaporizer Glass Wands. They are good to use, it all depends with what a person is comfortable with as you cannot single out one of them.
