You may have heard many things about personal vaporizers recently, and you have probably seen a ton of coverage about e-liquids and other vape products. However, the lesser known dry herb vaporizer is also gaining in popularity and offers a slightly different functionality than liquid-based vaporizers. Here's everything you need to know about dry herb vaping and what it has to offer.
The name itself gives away at least a portion of what dry herb vaporizers are. Instead of using liquids or oils, the user places small amounts of dry herbs inside of their vaporizers to be heated. There are many therapeutic and aromatic herbs that can be vaped in this way.
Vaporizers work by gently heating the material you place in the heating chamber. Simultaneously, the user draws air across the heating chamber, which picks up the chemicals, scents and by products of the heated material, and carries it up to your mouth. This is different from smoking, because the dry herb vaporizer does not cause combustion of the material, so nothing is burning. For those interested in dry herb vaping with marijuana, the vapor you are inhaling is a much less dangerous way of receiving the same effects of the THC and other chemicals in the herbs. Furthermore, the heat being produced is not actually in contact with your herbs, as they are gently warmed by the air passing across them, rather than sitting on the heat source itself.
When it comes to actually using an herbal vaporizer, the technique is slightly more advanced than using a liquid vaporizer. The inside of the herbal vaporizer uses a screen, upon which you pack your material. Herbal vaporizers come with a variety of different screen densities, which change the way air flows through and around your material.
In addition, the amount of material that you pack into your dry herb vape pen can change its performance. Until you experiment and become familiar with the best packing methods, you may find that air flow is too restricted or too free. Once you get this down, then the actual operation of your marijuana vaporizer is pretty straightforward. Some of these pens offer advanced temperature control while others use only pre-sets for consistent results. As you use your dry herb vape pen, you will notice that the effects of the herb you have in the chamber eventually become less noticeable and that the media itself begins to take on a burnt taste, similar to getting a dry hit from an e-liquid vaporizer. You will know it is time to repack your device when this happens. In addition, if the mesh screen you are currently using is too open for your product, it is possible that small flakes could land on the heating element itself, causing a slight burnt flavor until they are eliminated. You may need to try several different styles of screens to find the right one for you.
There are a number of reasons that people choose to switch to a marijuana or dry herb vaporizer. One of the most common reasons is that it offers better control over how you experience your marijuana. You can alter the temperature, taste and feel of your vape within the circuitry of the device. Other people prefer the weed vape pen because it better conceals what they are actually vaping. In states where recreational use of marijuana is still fighting its way through legislation, the vape pen is inconspicuous, and doesn't stand out drastically from the more common liquid vaporizers. Lastly, many people wish to stay away from the negative effects of literally smoking cigarettes or marijuana. In this case, the vapor relieves them of the smoke, and offers a less irritating experience to the throat and lungs.
The marijuana vaporizer is growing in prevalence over time. Now that many states have legalized medical marijuana usage, and more states are coming on board with recreational usage, the use of dry herb vaporizer technology is becoming more widespread by the day. Herbal vaporizers are being introduced by more and more companies as they try to reach into a new market and earn the respect of long time marijuana smokers. It is important to remember that vaping marijuana is subject to the same rules and regulations as smoking marijuana, so you need to be aware of the laws in your state regarding these products.
VaporFi has recently added two new dry herb vape pen options to our lineup for added variety and functionality. If you have been considering investing in a quality dry herb vaporizer, we invite you to check out both the Orbit and the Atom, which offer two different kinds of herbal vape pen experiences. Both have been rated highly for their performance by users across the board. Accessories for dry herb vaporizers include different styles of mesh screens, cleaning brushes, a variety of mouth pieces and more. Since the product being vaped is not liquid, there is little worry about o-rings and leaks. In addition, some dry herb vape pens can also be used with concentrates or waxes with some level of success. If you are looking for a vaporizer to use with those types of products you should look for a device that is specifically designed to handle them.
The VaporFi Atom is a great, new temperature control capable dry herb vaporizer. It features a large heating chamber for less repacking and more vaping. The integrated LED light system provides two types of feedback to the user. When setting your temperature controls, you can choose from 360 degrees (blue), 410 degrees (yellow) or 464 degrees (red).
Once you start vaping the LED lights are used to indicate the battery life you have remaining. In order to keep from draining your battery while in use, you can check your battery by gently shaking your device to turn the lights on. All of this is possible thanks to the extra advanced chipset used inside the Atom to bring it to life. The Atom represents some of the most advanced dry herb vaping capabilities currently available.
The VaporFi Orbit is a sleek option for dry herb vapers who want a classy option for vaping around town. It comes in two-tone red and black or solid black. It features an oversized oven for holding plenty of herbs, along with a massive 2200 mAh battery for plenty of life. The rechargeable built-in battery offers enough power to get you through the day and achieve the greatest possible vape from whatever herb you use. Widely regarded as the best weed vape pen around, it is an excellent device for those who are new to vaping altogether.
Dry herb vaping will likely remain out of the mainstream for the foreseeable future as companies fight to keep up with legislation from state to state. However, those who do choose to use a dry herb vaporizer for their medical marijuana or recreational use can enjoy the variety of added features that have already come about in the vapor industry.
Mimicking the popularity of temperature control technology among liquid vapers, more and more dry herb vape pen manufacturers are adding similar features to their devices, albeit with fewer screens and menus involved. Dry herb vape pens also remain small in size and capacity, given that a larger heating chamber or device will not necessarily translate to a better experience the same way a larger tank capacity does.
Now that you understand the differences between dry herb vaping and e-liquid vaping, you can explore the most popular vaporizers currently on the market. You can enjoy the feeling of a smoke-free hit with your favorite herbs and without the hassle of openly smoking them. These vaporizers come at a fair price between $100-150, and they represent a long term investment in performance and overall quality experience.
Of course, all of VaporFi's dry herb vaporizer products come with the same customer satisfaction and workmanship guarantee that have become an important part of our reputation. Our goal is to give you the absolute best in technology, and to help answer any and all of your questions in a timely manner. Our customer service is second to none, so you can be sure that you will get everything you desire out of your new dry herb vaporizer from day one.
