HerbalAire vaporizer

The herbalAire H2.1 herbal vaporizer is a very sleek vaporizer made with durable high tech materials. The herbalAire herbal vaporizer has Teflon material for safe herbal temperatures. The outside of this herbal vaporizer is made of glass filled nylon. This isolates the vaporizing air from the heat source which keeps the bad materials from tainting the vapor. The temperature can be set just right, at the lowest temperature, to remove the active ingredients.

This herbal vaporizer unit comes with both a bag to fill with vapor or a whip and uses about 4–6 times less herbs when compared to smoking. The temperature control on this herbal vaporizer ranges from 250 deg. F to 400 deg. F. There are 18 tiny jets that produce heated air in a precise manner so that the herb blend is only permeated with each vapor inhalation. This function proves to preserve your herbal blend especially in idle use.

The herbalAire herbal vaporizer kit includes:

herbalAire Vaporizer bag fill system – pump, tubing with connector and 2 bags
Mouthpiece Kit – mouthpiece, 2 extensions, a stir tool and removable herb cup
Whip for direct inhalation
12 ft. power cord
This herbal vaporizer has been proven to extract 2 or more additional bags of spent herb than most other popular vaporizers. It heats up in 2 minutes. This vaporizer is a compact size. It has a temperature dial which is a tri–colored LED that alerts when it’s ready.

This herbal vaporizer truly delivers the performance that you need and at a great price when compared to other models on the market. It comes with a two-year warranty.

Using the herbalAire Vaporizer is very easy. After plugging in the base and the pump, just fill the provided bowl with an herb blend. To use the bag system, attach the bag into the mouthpiece, turning the allotted dial 360 degrees. Set the temperature – the light will turn on to indicate that the selected temperature has been reached. Turn on the pump switch and watch as the bag is filled with vapor. The process usually completes in as fast as 1 to 2 minutes. Turn the pump off after.…

Cigarette – Cigarette Study Exposes Position of California and Others

Cigarette – Cigarette Study Exposes Position of California and Others

What happens when legitimate, scientific volcano vape studies are held up in comparison to junk science? Even the casual observer notices a big difference. A great recent example being the difference between a just-released study as published in Regulatory Toxicology and Pharmacology and a most controversial report recently released by the State of California, USA. We will start with the latter.

The State of California has officially declared vaping a public health hazard to be avoided at all costs. However, as Boston University’s Dr. Michael Siegel points out on his Tobacco Analysis Blog, the State selectively chose to base their report only on research that would support their predetermined conclusion, while entirely ignoring contradictory evidence. Siegel specifically referenced the data they used to claim that e-cigarettes are not effective for smoking cessation.

It turns out that the research the State referenced was never intended to answer the ‘cessation question’ at all. The author of that research has said as much repeatedly. At the same time, State officials chose to ignore three other studies that not only were intended to address the cessation question, but also proved that people can effectively quit smoking through vaping.

Moving on, the previously mentioned legitimate study, just-published in Regulatory Toxicology and Pharmacology was designed to measure the harmful and potentially harmful constituents (HPHCs) of tobacco smoke, as compared to those of e-cigarette vapor. Two important aspects of this study should not be ignored:

Blank air measurements were included, along with tobacco smoke and dry herb vape
The studied aerosol mass of the e-cig vapor was similar in composition to the respective e-liquids.
These two factors show that the measurements of all three air samples were believable and properly comparable, unlike the other recent study (as published in the New England Journal of Medicine) that required researchers to overheat and burn atomizer coils in order to produce formaldehyde.

In simple terms, this latest research compares ‘apples to apples’ rather than ‘apples to oranges’, as we are seeing so often lately.

Lo and behold, these researchers discovered the following:

e-cig vapor is primarily made up of propylene glycol/glycerin and water
e-cig vapor contained 85% less nicotine than cigarette smoke
the volume of HPHCs in the e-cig vapor were consistent with those found in the blank air samples
the volume of HPHCs in tobacco smoke were 1,500 times greater than e-cig vapor
none of the HPHCs that researchers tested for was found in e-cigarette vapor.
The results of this study are stunning, to anyone who cares to take the time to fully absorb them. They reinforce the ‘tobacco harm reduction’ argument that e-cigarette advocates have been making for years. Moreover, unlike the recent report issued by the State of California, the results of this study are both verifiable and reproducible.

Given the clear and obvious potential for tobacco harm reduction with e-cigs, it is vitally important that any cigarette/e-cigarette study used to stake a position on vaping be both credible and relevant to the assertions it is being used to support. Not only is that good science, it is also simple intellectual honesty.…

Ecig Offers Five Ways to Compare Electronic Cigarettes with Tobacco

Are you among the estimated 10 million Britons who smoke tobacco dry herb vape? If so, we want you to know that the e-cigarette offers a viable alternative that millions of people, just like you, have already determined is superior to traditional cigarettes. If you are willing to compare electronic cigarettes to tobacco with an open mind, you may very well reach the same conclusion. Make no mistake; electronic cigarettes are an entirely different product. With e-cigs, there is no:
tar, carbon monoxide, etc.
offensive odor
yellowing stain
smoke or second hand smoke.
When you choose electronic cigarettes, you are choosing a product experts are now saying could potentially save millions of lives. To encourage you to give them a try, we’ve put together a list of five ways to compare electronic cigarettes with tobacco: Couple comparing electronic cigarettes in their home
1. Smoke or Vapor
The most important difference between tobacco and e-cigarettes should be as plain as the difference between ‘smoke’ and ‘vapor’. Tobacco cigarettes make use of the combustion process to create smoke filled with toxic chemicals and carcinogens. E-cigarettes use the atomization process to transform a nicotine liquid into a vapor. We encourage you to take a look at some of the research cited by the Electronic Cigarette Consumer Association UK relating to the safety of both e-cigarette liquid and vapor. The scientific evidence shows, at this point, there is likely no real concern about either one. It is certainly worth taking a look.
2. Passive Exposure
It has long been held by the medical community that passive smoking is nearly as dangerous as direct smoking. Moreover, although that belief is now in question, a number of studies have conclusively shown that there is little danger by way of passive vaping. According to Dr. Michael Siegel of Boston University, the latest such study showed no detectable amounts of 11 volatile organic compounds normally found in tobacco smoke as well as trace amounts of nicotine that were 10 times lower. Simply put, the study reveals that passive vaping is not actually a health threat to bystanders.
3. By-products
Two of the by-products of tobacco smoking are offensive odors and yellowing stains. Both are a direct result of heavy particulates in tobacco smoke that penetrate clothing, hair, etc. However, since electronic cigarette vapor does not contain the same heavy particulates, it does not leave behind the odors and stains.
4. Public Use
All across the UK, it is illegal to smoke in public places. Not so with electronic cigarettes. As long as property owners and/or managers do not object, you are free to vape just about anywhere tobacco smoking has been banned. Just be sure to check with management before you begin.
5. Annual Cost
The average 20-a-day smoker in the UK spends about £2,920 annually on tobacco. For someone making the average salary of £26,000, that is more than 10% of their annual income.…
