ˈa-tə-ˌmī-zər | Noun

The heating element in a vape pen that converts the cannabis e-liquid into the vapor that you inhale. The term “atomizer” may also be a broad reference to the unit that contains the heating e-coils and wick. There are different types of atomizers that vary in their levels of effectiveness, pros and cons. Drip tip atomizers require making frequent drops of e-liquid (about 3 drops for every 3 puffs) which gives them a reputation of being thorough yet high maintenance.


My drip tip atomizer takes up a lot of my time, but it’s all worth it.


I just want a quick hit tonight, so I’m going to grab a disposable atomizer.
