The first patent related to vaping was issued on 1963 to Herbert A. Gilbert. But vaping actually started much earlier, around 440 bc, when the Scythians realized that they can throw herbs such as Cannabis on red-hot stones and inhale the resulting vapor.
Humans came a long way since ancient traditions, and so did vaporizers! Modern-day Vaping is the act of inhaling vapor produced by a vaporizer or an electronic cigarette.
The vapor is produced from controlled heating of materials such as Herbs, Extracts, or Oil, Juice.
Most Vaporizers have a few basic components in common- A battery, a heating element, and a mouthpiece.
The battery supplies energy to heat the material in the heating element, to vaporization temperature. The temperature is high enough to vaporize the material, but not to burn it.
The user can inhale the Vapor, and enjoy the active ingredients of the material, without burning them! The vapor produced by a vaporizer is not smoke. It’s generally considered as a healthier alternative to smoke, and it also smells better and quickly dissipates into the air.
