Vaporisers produce no smoke only vapour and there are 2 main types :

Vaporisation, in our opinion, is the best way to get the unique flavor of your herb in its purist form.
The UK has one of the highest rates of mixing herb with tobacco in the world. We are on a mission to change this, we are all about 21st Century consumption and the benefits this can deliver.

Vaporising facts

Vaporising is a really clean and pure way of consuming your favorite herb.
Vaporisers heat the herb to a temperature where the active ingredients evaporate and turn into a vapour leaving behind the fibrous plant material. The vapour cloud contains more concentrated active ingredients than traditional combusted smoke.

smoking Facts

When you smoke, analysis the smoke produced shows it contains far few active ingredients than vapour with the majority of the smoke being toxic combustion by-products such as PAHs (Polycyclic Aromatic Hydrocarbons) these are some of the carcinogens found in smoke.
It’s your choice- choose wisely

Vaporising Herbs

Vaporising is becoming the defacto way to use herb in the 21st Century.
It is a much healthier alternative to smoking and is rapidly gaining popularity in the UK. The number of vaporisers available is growing fast and it can be a minefield to know which one will suit your needs. All the Vaporisers we sell at CannaBlyss are personally tested for the Blyss methods we advocate. We recommend a quality vaporiser and we stand by each one we sell.


This type use a miniature oven to heat the herb/extract directly in the bowl (where the herb sits) the herb heats through contact with the bowl walls and the heat is transmitted through the herb. The herb in some devices needs stir as the the materiel in contact with the oven wall can start to burn.


The air flow being drawn into the bowl and through the herb/extract to heat up the material to the vaporisation point. Convection offers a slightly safer way of heating with less chance of combustion. In our opinion you can get great results from both types and is down to personal choice and the technique that works for you.

Which is my vaporiser?

This is a very difficult question to answer.
But here is our advice – each vaporiser is unique and has features that appeal to some but not others, it’s all about you personal preference. You need to ask yourself the following questions to create your own checklist:

Where will you use the vaporiser?

We love to use ours in the Forest with #ActiveBlyss Hence we like portable Vaporisers and because we love the energy surge we use convection vaporisers.

How often will you use yours?

Every one is different and vaporisers require different maintenance and cleaning this can have a big impact if you use your vaporiser regularly.

How much do you want to spend?

Like so many things in life – you get what you pay for. We do not stock cheap ineffective Vaporisers we only offer quality products that perform well. Vaporisers can seem expensive, but please keep in mind that this initial investment can save you money in the long run as you’ll require less herb compared to smoking and there are so many additional health considerations.

What features do you want?

The range of vaporisers is expanding all the time and many have similar features but some of offer unique and useful features that can help you choose your perfect vape. Compare the features you find useful and use that to help narrow your list of possibles.

What to Look for?


-Portables are small, light, fit easily into a pocket and do not need to be plugged in to use. – Desktop are bigger and normally require a plugged in power source.

Ease of use

How complicated is a vaporiser to use? Most of the portable ones we sell can be operated with one hand and have easy to fill herb chambers. However, they can require a stir mid vape or need more effort to clean.


Vaporisers come in a variety of shapes and sizes this can be an important consideration.


The build quality and design of a Vaporiser can be a big buying point. We curate the vaporisers we sell and as such we we stand by every model in our line up. They are well built and reliable models.

Heat Time

Different Vaporisers have very different heat up times and very different battery strengths. You need to consider this when reaching your buying choice.

Temperature control

Some models have coloured lights to indicate what temperature they are at. While others have actual temperature readouts. We have found both types to be very useful and once you know your vaporiser you tend not to adjust the temperature too much.

Herb vaporisation Temperatures

Vaporisation in the 21st century is now a modern way to get the benefits of herb. We have built up a list of the vapour points for many of the main herbs in use today for your information.
Please note:- These temperatures are approximate indications only and you should find your own vapour point.

The temperature at which you set your vaporiser is of big influence to the effects that you can get from it. There are a huge amount of active compounds and cannabinoids with different effects in some herbs.
Each compound has a different vaporisation point depending on the vaporiser you should experiment to get your preferred effect – remember clouds of vapour do not always give you the best effects.
We start with lower temperatures which can be healthier and build up to find the sweet spot on the Vaporisor.
