Q: What is vaporization?

a: Vaporization is the process of extracting the active ingredients from plant materials through heat. It occurs when the active ingredient is heated and the liquids become gaseous, without causing combustion or the production of the associated noxious gasses such as CO and CO2. The by-product is the pure, vapor essence of the plant.

 

Q: Why vaporize?

a: Medicinal herbs have been smoked for curative benefits for ages. Modern studies, and our collective experience support the belief that vaporizing herbs, or vaportherapy, is safer and more effective than smoking them.

Without combustion none of the associated noxious gasses such as CO and CO2 are created. Vaporization releases the active ingredients of organic matter without combustion, so you only get the benefits and pure flavor from your herbs.

 

Q: How does temperature affect extraction levels?

a: Plants release different inherent essential oils at different temperatures. Each molecule boils and turns into a vapor at a specific temperature, and the Herbalizer allows you to control what you extract through its precise temperature.

Lower temperatures volatilize molecules that are gentle and uplifting. For most people, mid-range temperatures are balancing, while high temperature result in a very intense effect. If your new to vaporizing, we recommend starting at low temperatures and experimenting gradually with higher ones to get the effect you’re looking for.
