Vaping 101



If you are new to vaping, have no fear! We have assembled some of the most common questions and answers, below.  If you have any additional questions, feel free to email us at:


What is a vaporizer?

A Vaporizer is a device used to release the active ingredients of your herb or oils/concentrates without combustion (which creates smoke). The active ingredient is turned into an inhalable vapor.

How is vaporizing healthier than smoking?

Instead of burning the material, your product is heated at a much lower temperature. This allows one to receive all of the benefits without the carcinogens and other nasty by-products that are released during combustion (smoking). However, currently there are no scientific studies that compare vaping with smoking. The FDA has not approved vaporizers (or vaping) to help cure, diagnose or treat any disease or disorder.

What’s the difference between Conduction and Convection?

With Conduction vaporization, your oils/concentrates are placed in direct contact with the heating source, like the Vuber Atlas. On the other hand, Convection vaporization occurs when hot air passes over your dry herb, but never actually touches the heating element/source, like the Vuber Cosmos.

Is vaporization as potent as smoking?

Yes. In fact, properly generated vapor is more potent than smoke created when a plant substance is burned since it is more pure.

When I inhale, it doesn’t feel like anything is there. Am I doing something wrong?

Vaporization is a completely different experience. Vapor is a much lighter by-product than smoke, and as such you will not feel that heavy, irritating feeling that comes with traditional smoking.

When I exhale, little or nothing comes out. Is that normal?

Yes, this is completely normal. While density can vary between different vapors, typically you should only exhale a light mist as opposed to a large cloud of thick, smelly smoke.

Does the vapor produced by a personal vaporizer have an odor?

Compared to smoking, there is hardly any noticeable smell when using a Vuber Vape Pen. There can be a slight scent, especially when the vaporizer is used at a temperature that is too high, when combustion takes place. Most vaporizers are safe touse without having to worry about the smell.
