What is the difference between a normal vaporizer and one that is suitable for concentrates? What is the best vape pen? What should you pay attention to when buying a concentrates vaporizer or vape pen? These are all questions we will answer to help you make the right choice.
Dabs and Concentrates in a Vaporizer
A vaporizer is an electrical device which vaporizes smoke instead of burning it. The vaporizer heats up smokables by means of hot air or a hot heating element. Because there is no combustion, harmful substances such as tar, benzene and carbon monoxide are not released. You're smoking healthier and you'll still get high.
Most vaporizers are only suitable for weed and other dry herbs. These are the so-called dry herb vaporizers. Not all vaporizers are suitable for concentrates such as hash, BHO, rosin or wax. For these you need to use a vape pen or concentrate vaporizer. You can find them on this page. These vaporizers all have a sealed oven, or an extra accessory is supplied with the vaporizer which seals the oven. This prevents liquid concentrates from getting into places where they don't belong. For example, in or on a heating element, which is damaged by liquid substances. The vape pens and concentrates vaporizers on this page are all suitable for concentrates and dabs. Please note: if you can vaporize hash with the vaporizer, it's mentioned in the product text.
Concentrates Vaporizer VS. Vape Pen
On this page you will find two types of devices. Vaporizers which are suitable for both dry herbs (weed) and concentrates. For convenience, we call these concentrates vaporizers.

You cannot vaporize weed or other dry herbs with this. In other words: do you only want to vape dabs or concentrates? Buying a vape pen is the best choice.

Oil in the Vaporizer

These oils are unhealthy to vaporize. However, you can use the undiluted extract left over before diluting. Beware: very strong!
