VapirRise: “Oh you fancy, huh?” -Smell The Truth
Best Vapes: VapirRise Desktop Vaporizer
If you’re living in a multi-unit apartment building and smoke medical cannabis, chances are at least one of your neighbors is fuming.
That’s why a lot of patients keep the peace with a vaporizer – which is an electric device to heat and vaporize but not burn marijuana (or other herbs and oils). Cannabis vapor contains no smoke, which means virtually no odor, and far less throat irritation as well as far fewer carcinogens (though smoking weed doesn’t cause lung cancer).
If you want to get the same forced-air function of a Volcano and buy American for half the price, you’ll want to research Vapir’s new VapirRise Digital Aromatherapy Vaporizer for $249.99 online. It further distinguishes itself from the Volcano with a four-way nozzle for party-vaping, and an oils chamber that can handle cannabis oil – a concentrated form of the pain, nausea, and anti-spasm botanical. The downside is you’re going to have to familiarize yourself with the VapirRise’s 26 pieces. Filling a balloon takes 11 steps, and you’re going to need your own over mitt to handle the hot oil chamber.
Out of the box, the VapirRise is much lighter and more slender than the Volcano, with a cool, blue LED touchpad that allows you to set the temperature to between 150 and 400 degrees Fahrenheit. (The main active ingredient in marijuana, THC, vapes at around 380, according to reports.) The quick-set-up instructions were easy enough to follow for “direct inhalation” mode – where you vape through a plastic tube attachment. The Rise warms up in under a minute and is whisper quiet. While it warms up, finely grind .2 grams of herb, pour it in the chamber, attach chamber to adapter, and adapter to device. The internal fan gently pushes invisible vapor out of the mouthpiece. High temperatures and slow fan speed equal denser vapor, and vice versa.
Your first vape can seem a bit anti-climactic. Weed vapor is near-invisible and tastes like the ghost of the strain. You’re not burning chlorophyll, cell walls and stem, just vaporizing the plants active molecules – called cannabinoids – at a much lower temperature. Still, it takes less than a minute to feel the effects of inhaled cannabinoids, which in low doses include pain relief, appetite stimulation and improved mood. The faint, sweet vapor smell dissipates in minutes, or seconds with a window open.
