Why Not to Use Homemade Vaporizers
If you’re even thinking about building a homemade vaporizer, I can guess that you know the benefits of using one. Who wouldn’t want to enjoy in a prime nugget, without having to worry about pesky things like cancer? The thing is, professional vaporizers can be expensive… maybe growers don’t care, but us purchasers see that as money better spent on bud.
So the question is whether making your own vaporizer at home a smart move. Well, let’s look at the realities…
First, making a vaporizer is harder than it seems. You make a mistake and you waste money, hurt your body, or both. An example: many use glues in construction. When you fire up the heating unit if any of the glue melts… well, let’s just say that the toxins in glue aren’t so good for your lungs. At all. Unless glue sniffing/brain damage is your thing.
Second, building a workable thermostat is over most of our heads. So, you’ll never know what temperature your unit is actually running at. Remember, go one degree over 392° F and you have toxins pouring into your lungs. Might as well be smoking a blunt.
Third, most of the materials you can find and easily work with are of cheap quality. That is, unless you know where to look and have the cash for better materials. But if that’s the case, you might as well buy a professional unit with the money you’re going to spend. So, if you go the cheap materials route (which is likely) you’re going to have more breakage an troubles than with a pro vaporizer. You might save at the beginning, but it will catch up with you later.
Moral of the story: don’t be a cheap ass. Cough up a few bucks and get a real unit… it doesn’t matter which one you go with. You can even find semi-cheap units that are worth ever penny and come with replacement warranties if you have any issues. So spend a bit more upfront for something you know delivers, instead of having to drop more cash in the future.
