Convection vs Conduction
- The term conduction refers to the process in which heat or electricity is being directly transmitted through a substance, without the material moving.
- With a conduction style vaporizer, there is direct contact between an object/material (herbs/oil) and a source of heat.
- The term convection refers to the process by which heat is transferred through moving fluids. With a convection style vaporizer your desired product (herb/oil) is in a separate compartment from the heating element.
Difference between wax, oil, concentrates and dry herb
- Dry herb, as expected, is a dried herbal blend or tea, whereas an essential oil is a concentration of the herb's active properties inside a viscose liquid.
- Waxes, as the name suggests, are very thick and sticky in consistency and are super concentrated. They are often the most potent choice.
- Generally speaking, dry herb is much more volatile than liquid preparations, and requires much gentler and more consistent heating to vaporize effectively.
- Oils and waxes are often placed directly onto a red hot titanium nail or metal coil, which completely melts away the liquid and releases vapour
- One of the key differences between herbs, waxes and oils is the comparative potency of the three different mediums.
- Oils and concentrates are both made using the same ingredients that are found in their herbal counterparts, but they’re often distilled three or four times during the manufacturing process, which means that they tend to contain a much higher percentage of the volatile aromatic compounds responsible for their special effects.
