convection vs conduction vaporizers

Conduction vs Convection : What’s the best type of Dry Herb Vaporizer for you?

Typically, a dry herb vaporizer will heat your flowers either through conduction or convection heating.

Every single week dozens of you ask us to help you decide which of the two methods is best for you, so we figured it’d be worth having all the answers in one place.

Below we’ll run through the differences and the pros and cons of the two heating methods. After reading this, you’ll be either to decide whether a conduction vape or convection vape is best for your needs.

How do conduction vaporizers work?

Conduction vaporizers use direct contact to heat your herbs. First, the battery heats the coil which in turn heats the walls of the vaporizer’s oven.

As a result of being in contact with the walls of the oven, the vapour is produced from the herbs.

Conduction vaporizers are the most popular type of vaporizer and come in a variety of shapes, sizes and price brackets.

Despite being based on old technology, many users swear by conduction vaporizers and will use nothing else. Even today, some of the worlds best vaporizers (Davinci IQ, Pax 3) still use conduction heating.

Conduction vaporizers are similar to cooking over a stove; they work really well when there is more surface area than mass.

For example, it would be almost impossible to cook an entire chicken in a frying pan because only the part of the chicken actually touching the pan would cook.

To cook the entire chicken efficiently you would have to cut it into slices so more of its area is in direct contact with the pan. For this reason, when using conduction vaporizers, it’s best for herbs to be ground quite finely.

What are the advantages of conduction vaporizers?

  • Conduction ovens are usually very powerful and produce vapour within seconds. Conduction Vaporizers such as the Black Mamba and the Pax 3 are famous for being able to vape dry herbs in under 20 seconds!
  • The speed of conduction vaporizers makes them a popular choice of medical users or anyone who microdoses. Sessions can be very quick.
  • Conduction vaporizers are also more affordable. This is because the technology is older than convection and they do not require as many parts.
  • Conduction vapes tend to be more reliable and easier to maintain when compared to a convection vaporizer in the same price range.

What are the disadvantages of conduction vaporizers?

  • At very high temperatures, it is possible for the herbs closest to the heating element to burn
  • Conduction vaporizers can be inefficient. The herbs closest the heating element may cook faster than the herbs in the middle.

How do convection vaporizers work?

Convection vaporizers work by creating an atmosphere of hot air in your vape’s oven. It is this hot air that provides the heat that will vaporize your herbs.

Back to my chicken analogy! Convection vaporizers work similarly to a kitchen oven. An oven may cook a slice of chicken far slower than frying it, however, it will evenly cook a whole chicken, inside and out and there is a very low risk of burnt bits!

As a rule, convection vaporizers are far slower than conduction vaporizers but they heat your herbs more gently and efficiently.

What are the advantages of convection vaporizers?

  • Convection ovens are a favourite of many because there is minimal risk of combustion. This is because none of your herbs come into contact with the heating element. As long as you do not turn the temperature up above 210c the steam and air will not be hot enough to burn any herbs.
  • Convection vaporizers are great for larger sessions as they evenly heat the entire contents of your oven. This helps your herbs last longer.
  • Generally, convection vaporizers, taste better – again this is linked to the more stable temperatures inside your oven. Conduction vaporizers typically taste hotter and dryer when compared to a convection vape in the same price range.

What are the disadvantages of convection vaporizers?

  • Convection vaporizers require a bit more patience to use. Even the best convection vaporizers (such as The Mighty) can require well over a minute to reach vaping temperature.
  • Convection vaporizers are typically more expensive too – this is due to the technology being more advanced and containing more parts.
  • Finally, convection vaporizers have a bit of a skill curve. Customers new to vaping will require a few goes to get the hang of it. The most common faux pas is sucking too hard. When you do this you pull all the hot air out of the oven and replace it with cool air and as a result, your herbs don’t cook!

So which is better? Conduction or Convection Vaporizers?

The popular consensus on vape forums is that convection vaporizers are the superior method of heating. However, this view is largely formed because convection is newer, shinier (and expensive!).

In our opinion, the right heating method for you depends on your personal preferences.

If you’re looking for a vaporizer that is affordable, heats fast and is small and lightweight, then a conduction vaporizer may be more suited to you.

Conversely, a convection vaporizer would be the better option for someone who’s priorities are great flavours, high efficiency and have the time to sit down and really savour a session.

Typically, a dry herb vaporizer will heat your flowers either through conduction or convection heating. Every single week dozens of you ask us to help you decide which of the two methods is best for you, so we figured it’d be worth having all the answers in one place.

nautilus bong

Black Leaf Ice Bong ‘Nautilus’ with Diffuser & Percolator

The ‘Nautilus’ glass bongs from ‘Black Leaf’ are very popular since a long time among smokers. With this ‘Nautilus’ Icebong comes a new version on the market: it has a 15-slit-inlinediffuser and a further special – the 4-slit-dome-percolator. Through the 15-slit-inlinediffuser the smoke is swirled very strongly, which filtered many of pollutants and settled them out on the bong.

On the next station comes the 4-slit-dome-percolator. It filtered again and makes the smoke more gentle. The Ice-notches are also for more cooling and so the smoke is absolutely gentle, when you breathe it in. The sure ground is strength two times. The big bowl has a roll-stop-function.

Amethyst Buys a Bong

kooperfan

Summary:

Work Text:

“Amethyst, look! These bags have pictures of puppies on them! But they smell kinda weird.”

Steven held the tobacco package over his head, smiling.

“Ehhh, that stuff’s the worst.” Amethyst threw a knowing look at the hemp shop proprietor. “Jimbo keeps the good stuff in the back. Everyone knows that.”

The man smiled. “Nice to see you too, Ammy. What’re ya buyin’?”

Amethyst pointed at the bong shelf. “Need me a new one of those.”

“I just sold you the one with the racing stripes last month!”

With a half-hearted shrug, Amethyst said, “It broke.”

“It fell off a waterfall!” Steven yelled, almost knocking over a magazine display. Jimbo stared at him. Steven started apologizing profusely. Amethyst just laughed.

“Uh… who’s the kid?”

“Don’t worry about him.” Amethyst shapeshifted her arm, stretching it over the shop owner’s head. “Oh! This one, this one!” The bong looked like a giant, gold-plated tube of red lipstick.

The shop owner didn’t react to the long purple arm wiggling around his head. “It’s 200 bucks.”

“That’s so much!” exclaimed Steven.

“You tryin’ to screw me?” asked Amethyst with a grin. Her elongated arm finger-walked across the man’s shoulders.

“Don’t play with me, Ammy. I can’t afford it.”

“Fiiiiiiiiiiiiine.” Amethyst flicked the shop owner on the nose, then pulled the bong from the shelf. With her other hand, she pulled a sack of money out of her gem. “That’s probably enough.”

Jimbo sighed. “These are gold pirate coins.”

“Bye!” Amethyst giggled loudly.

“It was nice meeting you!” said Steven.

Out on the boardwalk, Amethyst greedily eyed her prize. It seemed to be glowing in the afternoon light.

“Ohhhh yes. This is gonna be great.”

“What does this thing do?” Steven asked innocently.

“It’s. it’s just for fun. But you can’t tell Pearl.”

Steven pretended to zip his lips.

“I knew I could count on you, buddy.” Amethyst fumbled for her cell phone, still holding the bong close to her chest. “Why don’t you head to the Big Donut? I’ll catch up later.

Steven smiled and skipped merrily away.

Amethyst listened to her phone ring impatiently. Finally, someone answered.

“Hey, Vidalia! Watchu got goin’ on toniiiiiight?”

how to make your weed stronger

Ways to Intensify your High/ Ways to Make your High Stronger

Sometimes you feel that the weed you’re smoking is no longer cutting it and feels like you need this extra surge of high to experience a better time. We’ ve all been looking for some additional ways to make our high feel more intense or stronger, without spending tons of money and going through a lot of trouble to do so.

Whether the quality of the weed you’re smoking is just below average or just your tolerance levels have significantly increased, here are ways to make your weed high stronger.

Store your weed better

If you keep your weed in those little plastic baggies for a while after you’ve acquired them, there’s a possibility that the weed could lose some of its potency due to the conductive nature of the plastic, minute electrical charges could end up harming the quality of your flower. Fix this by finding an alternative to the plastic bags, such as a more sustainable glass jar or metal container; you’d be thinking of the environment too!

Project: South Grove

“Beginning in the summer of 1990, a multi-year investigation of the area known as the South Grove, situated just south of the Mansion and the associated kitchen, was initiated. The site was selected as the result of numerous 18th-century artifacts being found there over the years, combined with its high potential for yielding surface-deposited domestic refuse associated with the Washington household. In addition to providing information relating to the daily lives of the Washington Family, analysis of refuse associated with the plantation household would allow direct comparison with the material culture associated with African-American slaves excavated at the “House for Families” quarter.

An extensive sheet midden was partially revealed and tested in 1990, with two much larger portions exposed in 1991 and 1992. The midden was at least 30 feet in diameter and in excess of 1.5 feet in depth at its center. Excavations yielded enormous quantities of faunal remains, ceramics, wine bottle glass—including three different bottle seals—table glass, tobacco pipes, and a wide range of personal and household objects. Based on the materials recovered to date, the midden appears to have been deposited just prior to the American Revolution.

In addition to the midden, several subterranean brick drains also were revealed. Two of the drains apparently connect with the Mansion basement and with the kitchen larder, and date to a period of Construction and major renovation carried out in the 1770s. A third drain may be associated with the earlier kitchen, built before 1752 and demolished in 1775.

  • I usually roll by myself. I enjoy it a lot. I’ve never have rolled with plenty of people.

    I just chill out listen to music and lay around. Let things come to my mind when they do.

    For me it’s always a good time.

  • Rolling by yourself can be HIGHLY enlightening, productive, therapuetic, etc.
    Introspection is what it was intended to be used for, and while is GREAT for other things (ESPECIALLY bringing people together) it is also great for bringing yourself together.

    I highly suggest rolling alone!
    Just keep positive.

    but yeah, don’t make a habit of it, as royksopp said

  • I’ve never done it, but I guess I’d be willing to give it a try. I just sort of view rolling as something that should be done with others around, simply because I have a lot of fun being around friends when I’m rolling.

    To those who have rolled alone, did you guys ever feel lonely or missing out on something when you were doing it?

  • I had done E plenty of times before I ever rolled alone.
    The first couple of times it was alright. The introspection was something that couldn’t be topped, but then I’d get bored and have to call up a girl or something b/c I kindof felt like I was wasting.

    Once I got into spinning, though, popping a few pills and playing on the turntables made for a fun night.

    I’d still much rather roll at a house party/club/rave.

    has anyone rolled solo? if so, what should one do if this is done?
