One of the most common questions asked by our patients is “Which vaporizer is right for me?”

The first question that you want to ask yourself is “where am I going to be consuming my cannabis?” If you plan on using cannabis on the go, a portable vaporizer would be an appropriate choice. If your cannabis use will most likely occur at home or in a set place, then a table top vaporizer would be your best bet. Table top vaporizers allow you to choose a hose or inflatable bag, whereas a portable vaporizer has a small opening at the top or a glass straw. 

Generally, there will be a screen on both that will show you the temperature set on the vaporizer as well as some sort of indication that it has reached it’s set temperature. Some vaporizers will only show you different levels of heat such as “high, medium, low.” Knowing your temperature is important in terms of activating certain terpenes, and of course, giving you more control over your medication.

Some vaporizers have larger bowls than others. Some promote a more discreet, sleek look, and others allow for the consumption of dry cannabis, as well as oils. At the end of the day, the most important thing is finding a vaporizer that fits best into your lifestyle.

Another important thing to consider is price. Vaporizers can range in price. At the Natural Health Services Education Centre, our vaporizers range from $82 for some of our more economical models to $840 for more premium-end products. One of the benefits of vaporizing is that you’ll get more efficient use out of your cannabis therefore allowing you to use less.  Once the cannabis is used, you can also save it and bake with it which allows you to double the use of your cannabis. Thanks to this, vaporizers end up paying for themselves.
