Convection heating and conduction heating are two distinct methods used in vaporizers to extract compounds from the material:
Convection Heating: In convection heating, hot air is circulated around the material, heating it indirectly. The hot air passes through the material, extracting the active compounds, which then turn into vapor for inhalation. The heating is more even and gentle, preventing combustion and producing a purer flavor.
Conduction Heating: Conduction heating involves direct contact between the material and the heated surface or heating element. The heat is transferred from the surface to the material, causing it to vaporize.
