Hey guys first time poster here. Been smoking for the past 5 years through bongs, pipes etc, but I feel like the smoke is taking a toll on my throat. Always been interested in vaporizers but to be honest I don't know anything about them and my seldom friends who do smoke have no interest. I looked on the boards here, but was hoping some of you seasoned veterans can help an amateur like me in answering a few questions I have. The extent of my knowledge comes from watching Doug Benson use one in Super High Me lol. So here it goes... First, some general questions: 1. How exactly does a vaporizer work? Do they all use bags? Do others use tubes? 2. Do you get the same high from a vaporizer? 3. How easy is it to use? 4. Does the use of a vaporizer reduce smell? 5. How do travel or stealth vaporizers works? Lastly, some more specific questions/recommendations: 1. Can anyone recommend a good at-home vaporizer that's not too big and relatively easy to use while delivering a good high. Price doesn't matter but looking to stay under $300 if possible. 2. Also can someone recommend a good travel/discrete vaporizer I could take out at say concerts or while at the beach that would be inconspicuous, easy to use, and have not much of a smell. Again, trying to stay under the $300 range. I know I can probably find answers to all these questions individually by scouring the boards, but if someone can be so kind as to help out in this thread and hook me up with some good, honest information, I would be really totally appreciative. Thanks again guys and I appreciate the time.
