SALES AND PROMOTIONS

Unfortunately our platform only allows for one discount code to be used per order, so only one discount can be used at a time.
A vaporizer is a device which heats up herbs to a temperature at which they release their active ingredients into vapour. This vapour contains almost none of the toxic elements found in smoke. See our 'What is Vaporization?' page for more information.
When herbs are heated to a certain temperature their active ingredients begin to boil and are released. As the temperature used is low, the herbs do not get burned and there is little or no smoke created. The vapours which are released are much more concentrated and cleaner than smoke.
Minimal Odour - ideal for use in small, shared or unventilated rooms.
Efficiency – You will actually use far less herbs for the same effect. Burning the plant material actually burns over 40% of the active ingredient as well. Vaporizers are far more economical than traditional methods of smoking.
Reported Health Benefits - Studies have found that vaporizing is easier on the lungs and contains far less harmful carcinogens and tar normally found in smoke.
There are two main types of vaporizers: those that use conduction and those that use convection.
Conduction vaporizers heat herbs through direct contact with a hot surface.
Convection vaporizers heat herbs by passing heated air over them. Convection vaporizers are considered the superior option because they heat herbs more evenly and there is little risk of burning them, which may sometimes occur with conduction vaporizers.
The odour produced by a vaporizer is almost non-existent when compared to smoking. Within a few moments of using a vaporizer, most if not all odour vanishes.
The vapor material is done when your plant material changes in colour to a much darker color. Practice makes perfect.
Yes, you can re-vaporize your herbs to extract any remaining active ingredients.
We’re sorry to hear you’re not getting any vapor from your vaporizer.
Please be aware that despite what you see in videos, vaporizers are not meant to produce dense clouds of smoke. Vapor by its nature is a mist-like substance and can be difficult to see, much like when you exhale on a cold morning and see your breath.
Furthermore, some strains or batches of material do not produce much, or any, visible vapor at all. Generally speaking, if you can feel the unit heating, your material is discolouring inside the chamber after several draws and you can taste the material, then the vaporizer is most likely functioning normally. However there are a number of things you can do maximise vapor production.
Temperature Adjustment - Try a higher temperature if possible.
Draw Speed - Most units respond better to slow, deep inhalations.
Material Consistency - A fine grind will usually work best for most vapes.
Loading the Chamber - If you're only partially filling the chamber, this can have a negative impact on vapour production (especially for smaller portable vaporizers). Try filling the unit between 3/4 and full for best results.
Heat-Up Time - Some vaporizers (especially those with quick heat-up) will benefit from being left for a minute or so after heat up has completed. This will heat-soak your material and aid vapour production.
Try a Different Kind or Batch of Herb - As previously mentioned, some types of material are inherently going to produce less vapour. If possible, try a different type or batch to rule this out as the cause of the issue.
For more tips and tricks please try the following video guide.
Lastly, please note that most video vapour demonstrations and photographs are heavily illuminated with a white light and are performed using materials that are known to produce decent vapour production. You can try exhaling directly into a light source and see if there is visible vapour present but please do not be discouraged if you are still not seeing anything.
