e-Liquid & Vape Juice
These vaporizers are used to vape tobacco in the form of vape juice. This category consists of a few smaller categories, the main two are eCigs and Vape Mods.
Both work in the same way–by heating up a liquid (a mixture of PG/VG/Nicotine/Flavors) to a boiling temperature. The resulting vapor is then inhaled to enjoy the given substance’s benefits. This category started out with simple eCigs and later evolved into the more powerful, robust vape mods.
Generally, if you are trying to quit smoking or looking for an alternative this category is what you should go for.

Weed & Dry Herb
Weed vaporizers come in two versions–Portable and Desktop. This category started with Desktops which were large and required an electrical plug-in. Recent technological advancements made batteries more efficient and allowed portables to dominate the market. Most modern day vapes are portables.
These devices generally contain a small oven, where you insert ground herb, such as medical weed. The oven heats up to the desired temperature, releasing potent THC and other cannabinoids from the herb in the form of vapor to be inhaled.
If you are looking to consume medical marijuana (as herb) and minimize health risks associated with traditional weed smoking, this category is for you.

In recent years, marijuana legalization around the US made THC extracts (i.e., concentrates, wax, oil) more accessible. These extracts contain around 70 percent THC versus plant material’s 22 percent.
Extract vaporizers have a small heating coil where a drop of extract is placed and heated to the ideal vaping temperature–producing extremely potent vapor. Extracts are ideal to use with vaporizers as they are super-concentrated, meaning you only need a little dab in order to get a sufficient amount of THC.
These extracts are more convenient to vape than dry herb, and require less power. A typical extract vaporizer looks like a small pen, is simple to transport, and provides fuss-free refills and heat-ups.
If you are looking for a stealthy, way to consume THC extracts–this is it.
