Desktop Vaporizer

What Does Desktop Vaporizer Mean?

A vaporizer, or vape, is a device used to heat dried cannabis flower, extracts, or concentrates to just below the temperature of combustion which delivers extracted cannabis compounds in the form of vapor.

Desktop vaporizers are a style of vaporizer. As opposed to vape pens and other handheld vaporizers, desktop vaporizers are meant to be used in a stationary location as they are typically large and must be plugged into a power outlet.


Maximum Yield Explains Desktop Vaporizer

Desktop vaporizers are typically corded and powered via electrical outlet, making them more powerful than their handheld, battery operated counterparts. This means consistent heat and a stronger fan for larger amounts of potent vapor and a superior user experience.

If the desktop vaporizer does run off battery power, its larger size accommodates a larger battery for longer operating life and fewer recharges. This, along with their larger bowl capacity, make them ideal for longer vape sessions or sessions involving multiple users.

Desktop vaporizers often feature sophisticated controls and come with a variety of attachments, such as whips, water pipe extensions, and/or balloons. Since most desktop vaporizers come with one or more of these different attachments, they will cost quite a bit more than portable, handheld vapes.

Desktop vaporizers typically use convective heating, meaning cannabis compounds are converted to vapor by drawing heated air around the product. This is opposed to conductive heating, which requires direct contact with a heated surface and risks burning the product. Another benefit of convective heating in desktop vaporizers is that your product is only heated while drawing, so there is little waste between hits, and since vaped flower is not burned, it is possible to use Already Vaped Bud to make edibles, tinctures, and other cannabis products.
