What is a Hash Oil Vaporizer?

Vaporizers are been a increasingly popular product that is used daily by many smokers in order to help them stop smoking, however now, these exact same devices are being used by millions of people who use medicinal marijuana as well. With the ever-changing scope of marijuana legalization, the health benefits of using a vaporizer just can’t be ignored.

The reason behind so many people making the switch is to reduce the health risks to the lungs from smoking.

What is a Hash Oil Vaporizer?

hash oilA hash oil vaporizer is a type of vaporizer that allows you extract the active ingredients in your oils (cannabinoids) to ensure you get the most potency out of your material. Out of all 3 cannabis products (herb, resin, and oil), hash oil is the most potent.

There are lots of different types of vaporizers to choose from – some will work with herbs, others with wax, while others will only work with oil. If you’re planning on vaping just hash oil, you need to make sure that you choose the right type.

From my experience, I have seen a lot more portable vaporizers that work with hash oil as opposed to desktop vaporizers.

How Does it Work?

Once you pick a good hash oil vaporizer that you’re happy with, it’s off to the races.

A hash oil vaporizer simply works by applying low heat to the oils that you’re using and vaporizing them, and that is done through the battery portion of the vaporizer. The low heat then warms up the active ingredients, such as the THC in hash oil, to be released without burning the essential oils and allows you to start taking your draws.

How to Use One

Like I said before, there are portable vaporizers and desktop vaporizers, but with hash oil vaporizers, there tend to be many more portables ones. Usually the only difference is how you load it up and whether or not you can stick it in your pocket.

If you choose a desktop model, you’ll usually need to pre-heat the device for around 15 minutes before adding any wax or oils. After it’s heated, you just add your oils into the bowl/chamber and start vaping.

As for the portable ones, all of them are about the size of a large pen and are powered by a battery that is used to heat up the atomizer (the heating element). You just take your hash oil, fill your cartridge (the part that holds the liquid to be vaporized), press a button to warm it up for a few seconds, and start taking your draws.

The most popular portable ones are the DaVinci Ascent and the Arizer Solo.

What are the Benefits of Using a Hash Oil Vaporizer?

A hash oil vaporizer is commonly used for health reasons. There is a rapidly growing recognition of the importance of marijuana for medical purposes and it has shown to be helpful to those going through chemo-therapy and helpful to those suffering from glaucoma as well as several other diseases. In general, it has been an important part of pain management to many patients. However, the one concern about using marijuana for patients is the unhealthy affect on the lungs which is where vaporizers come in.

Using a vaporizer will result in much cleaner inhalation methods and will block out all the potential toxins that are extracted from any derivative.

By using a hash oil vaporizer with an oil based derivative of marijuana, the smoke is eliminated and the vapor still contains the active ingredient needed by a patient but without the irritation or health concerns from the smoke.

Another really beneficial aspect is that you can take full control of what hash oils you vape, which means you can actually make your own if you’d like. Depending on where you live, you may be able to buy some, but if not, here’s a video that walks you through the process of making your own:

For anybody that is using marijuana for legal medical purposes, a hash oil vaporizer is an absolute must.

With an efficient, high quality oil vaporizer such as the Atmos Optimus 510 you can ensure you are getting the purest essence of your oils and herbs without wasting anything.
