Herbalizer Vaporizers Have Arrived

Herbalizer

The Herbalizer Vaporizer.

While we’re usually amongst the first to try new vaporizers, we have yet to try the new Herbalizer vaporizers that are out now. From what we’ve heard, they’re definitely one of the top vapes in terms of performance, but their high cost might sway some away from picking one up, as they have a cost that rivals the Volcano vaporizers. But being one of the more expensive vaporizers has some perks, as the device appears to be one of the best desktop vaporizers that’s currently on the market.

We’ll have more on the Herbalizer in due time and we’ll be sure to update all of you when we do.

Our Latest Ascent Video Review Was Covered By A Vaporizer News Site

We had to update our Ascent vaporizer review to reflect some changes that were made to an updated version we had received and to correct a mistake. We found this video, which we made and published on YouTube, on a vaporizer news site. The website where we found this is a new one based on the timestamps of the articles published. It looks like they only recently started but they’re obviously off to a good start because we’re already talking about them and we, Vape Forest, are widely recognized vaporizer reviewers.

For those that don’t know about the Ascent, it’s a newer vape that’s handheld, portable, and versatile. In terms of versatility, we’re referring to its ability to vaporize various blend types. The temperature controls range from zero to over 400 degrees (Fahrenheit). It’s not the smallest, but it is one of our favorites. When they first came out, they were only available in 3 patterns/colors. This changed with the introduction of the carbon fiber one. At this point, they have their build your own vaporizer option which lets you select the colors/patterns you want from a wide variety options.

The big deal with Ascents is their glass on glass design. An all glass vapor pathway isn’t something you’ll find in every vaporizer but Organicix LLC has pulled it off in this portable and that’s basically legendary in our minds.

Back to the site where our video was found, we’re happy to see other websites sharing our videos. Especially happy when those sharing our videos happen to be in the vaporizer industry. To that regard, we must express our appreciation by saying thank you to VaporizerWire.com for sharing our video review of the Ascent! We’re so appreciative, we just might follow Vaporizer Wire on Twitter.

On a side note, our blog doesn’t look that great to us. We’re thinking about updating its appearance. Let us know what you think about updating the appearance of our blog.

Add Vapor for Some Extra Culinary Flavor

In the late 1700s, French financier/food aficionado Grimond de la Reyniere declared, “The kitchen is a country in which there are always new discoveries to be made.”

Some two centuries later, our foodie love affair continues to ring true. From traditional dishes to avant-garde creations, citizens of the world all seem to share one thing in common: our worldwide penchant for good eats.

Perhaps one of the latest methods to heat up the kitchen includes a home appliance, not generally touted for its culinary inclusion….the vaporizer.

Vaporizer Cooking Picture

How To Cook With Vaporizers.

Known as “aromatization” (or “molecular gastronomy,” if you want to get fancy), this process uses vapor to add both flavor and aroma to your dish.

Believe it or not, vaporizers have been hailed as the premiere instrument to jazz up one’s dining experience in recent years. There’s even a technique known as “hypermodern cooking,” which uses vaporizers to enhance the flavors of meals.

Perhaps most popular is the Volcano vaporizer, which is hailed as the ultimate device for the hypermodern cooking movement. Just what makes the Volcano the perfect vape for that piquant platter? Check our latest infographic (see image above) to see how the Volcano vaporizer can spice up your next great dish!

Busy, Busy, Busy @ VapeForest.com

Those of us here at Vape Forest have been busier than usual trying to test all of the vaporizers we have managed to get a hold of. One of our main goals at the moment is to update our YouTube channel and Ascent review with a new Ascent vaporizer video review to clear up any misconceptions that have come as a result of any error within our original video. We would like to remind all of our loyal followers to subscribe to our newsletter using the subscription form at the top of this blog. We would also like to take a moment to remind everyone that we are always interested in reviewing new vaporizers so if you have one that you think we should test, be sure to let us know by reaching out to us via the Contact Page on our website. That’s all for now. We wish you all a wonderful winter!

Video: How To Use The Ascent By DaVinci


This video by the folks over at DaVinci demonstrates how to use the Ascent’s digital controls. If you were wondering how to switch between Fahrenheit and Celsius operating modes, this is the video for you. It also explains how to setup the advanced temperature control system, adjust the vaporizing temperature, change the settings on the auto-off motion timer, turn the unit on and off, and more. Definitely take the time to watch this next video (the one directly below this paragraph) if you’re unclear as to the specifics of operating this device.

By now, assuming you’ve watched both videos, you should have an excellent understanding of how to use DaVinci’s new Ascent.

Snoop Dogg Partners With Grenco Science

Snoop Dogg Vaporizer

The new Snoop Dogg G-Pen vaporizer by Grenco Science

Grenco Science, makers of the popular G Pen vaporizers, have released a new Snoop Dogg edition G-Pen to commemorate their recently announced partnership. The new vape features a road-map of Long Beach, California. Those of us at Vape Forest haven’t had a chance to test this new portable, however, it looks like, at a glance, one hot new vape with style and grace. A quote by Snoop Dogg on Grenco’s website read:

What’s fly about the vaporizer movement is that it’s clean and convenient. Launching my custom G Pen is a great way to kick off the business partnership with Grenco Science

What are your thoughts on this recent collaboration?

How To Vaporize Liquids With DaVinci’s Ascent


Ascent by DaVinci is designed to vaporize essential aromatherapy oils and other liquid blends and this video by Organicix (makers of the Ascent and DaVinci vaporizers) demonstrates exactly how to go about vaporizing them. For starters, simply load one of the included glass oil jars with your preferred blend. Next, choose whether or not you’ll be using a higher or lower temperature, as this will decide whether or not you choose to use a lid. The lid is entirely optional, though, those of here at VapeForest.com recommend using a lid unless you’re vaporizing on the higher temperature settings. In this video, the DaVinci company suggests the same: lids on low temperatures, no lids on high temperatures.

For reference, Ascents, just like the classic DaVinci vapes, are designed to accommodate the vaporization of both liquid as well as dry blends.

Video: How To Clean Ascent Vaporizer By DaVinci


In this video, the DaVinci Vaporizer company demonstrates how to clean the Ascent vaporizer. Basic maintenance entails cleaning of the heating chamber and the two glass pieces that compose the vapor pathway. The two pieces that compose the vapor pathway are known as the internal glass straw and the glass mouthpiece. As both parts are glass, they’re easy enough to clean. Brush off any debris using a cleaning brush, soak them in isopropyl alcohol (rubbing alcohol) or glass cleaner, and then rinse them with water and you’re done. Cleaning the heating chamber requires a q-tip which, as seen in the video, is dipped into isopropyl alcohol and then used to clean the contents of the chamber. The entire cleaning process is relatively simple and straight forward.

Those of us here at Vape Forest were quite pleased with how easy the Ascent was to clean when using the aforementioned process. Compared to cleaning some of the other handhelds we’ve come across, cleaning the Ascent was nothing short of a walk in the park; Ascents are an absolute breeze to clean.

Ascent Vaporizers Have Been Released To The Public!

That’s right everybody, the Ascents are finally out. The portable vape with the all glass vapor-path has finally been released to the general public! For those who have been waiting, it probably couldn’t have come soon enough. So for those of you who have been holding out for all this time in the hopes that it would finally be released, the wait is over; the Ascents have arrived. It doesn’t look like there will be any shortages anytime soon but if you’re hoping to get yours anytime soon, you’ll probably want to rush on over to DaVinci’s online store to place your order immediately!

For those still unclear on when they arrived: the Ascents were made available to the public on November 1, 2013.

If you’re still trying to decide between the Atmos RX, Ploom Pax, Pinnacle, and the new Ascent by DaVinci, you’ll definitely want to take a look at all of the vaporizer reviews we’ve published on the review section of our site. Doing so should shed some light on the differences between them. Be sure to contribute your own thoughts if you happen to have used any of the aforementioned vapes (especially if your usage has been extensive), as we’re always interested in learning what others have to say and we think the rest of our visitors feel the same.

Back to this hot new hand held vape, it would seem as if the new latch system has been incorporated (something a lot of folks seem to be curious about). The pre-release units (those that came out before the recent public release date) seemed to lack the intended battery life, but DaVinci took notice and resolved the issue.

Reading a bit of the feedback from new users that recently received their units, it looks like most are happy with their new Ascents and that’s essentially what we here at VapeForest.com were expecting. After all, we were one of the first to use the Ascent, as we received our beta/test unit months before the recent public release. While it wasn’t a finalized version at the time, we quickly realized that it was exactly what we had been waiting for: a portable that tastes great, is compact enough, has easy to use precision temperature controls, and the ability to vaporize a really diverse array of blends. The Ascent was literally all this and more. The advanced temperature controls really took us by surprise and the ALL GLASS vapor pathway was just what we had been dreaming of here at Vape Forest for quite some time.

If you’re as excited as we are, head on over to http://www.DaVinciVaporizer.com to see what all of the fuss is about and make sure you take a look at the Ascent vaporizors, assuming you haven’t taken a look at them already. It is our understanding that they are shipping internationally, however, if they’re not, this wouldn’t be the first time we made a mistake. Hey, we’re only human! On that note, we’re going to cut this blog post short and simply say: HAPPY VAPING FROM YOUR FRIENDS IN THE FOREST!

Vaporizer 101: Get Educated Before You Buy Vaporizers

Interested in purchasing a vaporizer? You’ve come to the right place! Vaporizers are a worthy investment for their long-term benefits, so it’s important to know where to first begin.

So…what exactly is a vaporizer? Simply put, a vaporizer is an inhalation device that’s used to extract active ingredients of plant material (i.e. tobacco and other blends).

Vaporizers Explained

The image above explains what you need to know about vaporizers and vaporization.

Vaporizers work by heating up dried plant and/or similar material to an appropriate temperature, which releases active components into an aromatic vapor. Although vapor may appear to resemble smoke, it doesn’t actually contain any of smoke’s toxic particles. This is because with a vaporizer, there is no burning, scorching or combustion that is normally associated with smoke inhalation. This is great news, when considering just how dangerous smoking is to our health.

Most of us know by now that smoke contains toxic byproducts that irritate the mouth, throat and lungs, and also give off noxious odors. With vaporization, there are no such harmful effects, and is considered to be one of the most effective methods of filtering out harmful, respiratory toxins that are often present in smoke.

There are three basic types of vaporizers: standard vaporizers, portable vaporizers, and forced air vaporizers, and always keep in mind that vaporization works in two ways.

This first, conduction, heats directly through contact with a hot surface, and usually requires a finer grind. Furthermore this method also requires the user to stir or shake the material between draws, in order to expose more surface area to heat. Conduction methods as a whole tend to be simpler, smaller and cheaper than convection alternatives.

Convection, on the other hand, is a process that heats indirectly by moving hot air through and over the load. This makes it easier to avoid combustion, and allows for hot air to easily penetrate plant material. Furthermore, convection heats easily, with easier temperature controls.

Please note that costs and other variables should always be factored in, in order to ensure your vaporizer is tailored to your individual preferences and price range — and while you’re here, don’t forget to visit our homepage at VapeForest.com, to explore all of your vaporizer options!

Seeing as there is more than one author here at VapeForest.com, here’s another description of the image that can be found here. This alternative description is what you will find below this paragraph. Enjoy the alternate perspective.

This is an explanation of what vaporization is, the common vaporizing applications, and the main types of vaporizers on the market today. This is in reference to what are commonly referred to as tobacco vaporizers and smoking vapes. The latter of which descriptions is an inaccurate portrayal of what a vape really is, as they actually provide an alternative to smoking (combustion) and are in fact creating vapor instead of smoke. If you’re wondering what the health benefits to vaporizing are, this image that we created should provide you with the information you’re seeking.

Vaporizer Types

While we broke the main categories of vaporizers down into three categories, we do readily admit that there could have been other categories in addition to the three we provided. The reason we chose three was to simplify the equation for the novices (those new to vaporizing). Bag vaporizers, multi-use (like the Extreme Q and Vapir Rise), and liquid vapes are some examples of other categories we could have included. We may revise this at a future date, but then again, we may not. For now, the three main categories are:

Conduction VS Convection

For those who have been wondering what convection is, we have an explanation. We also made an attempt to define conduction as it applies to vaporization. This should answer the question, “what is the difference between conduction and convection?
