Vape Pens vs. Cannabis Vaporizers
Vape pens are often confused with traditional cannabis vaporizers since many news articles have not done a good job differentiating them. It is important that Canadians know the difference so that they can safely navigate the recreational cannabis space without needlessly avoiding all vaporizers.
Traditional vaporizers have a tried and true mechanism of vaporizing cannabis. They simply heat up dried cannabis forming the vapour to be inhaled. This is considered a cleaner way to inhale the plant compared to smoking or burning it.
In contrast, vape pens have a liquid concentrate of either nicotine or THC which is heated, vaporized and inhaled via an electronic device. These devices are relatively new to the Canadian market where they were introduced in 2004.
