Guide To Choosing A Dry Herb Vaporizer


If you're interested in vaping dry herb but don't know where to start when it comes to choosing the right dry herb vaporizer for you, we've put together the ultimate guide to make the decision making process easier. Here are some things to keep in mind when making your choice:



Desktop or Portable Vaporizer

The first thing to decide is whether you're going to be vaping at home or whether you're going to be vaping on the go. For home bodies who prefer to vape in the privacy and comfort of their own place, a desktop device is the best choice and will also offer plenty of versatility in intake options with water pipe extensions, whips, balloons and mouthpieces, with devices such as the Herbal Aire H3 being a great choice.  while a portable device such as the Black Mamba is compact and discreet enough to take wherever you go, although their short battery life and small chamber will mean frequent recharges and refills. 


Heating Method


There are two ways in which a dry herb vaporizer can be heated – convection or conduction. While conduction involves transferring heat via direct contact, convection transfers the heat through air particles and is a better choice but is also a more expensive option. Portable units often use a conduction heating system while desktop models are more likely to be convection vaporizers.


Temperature Controls


The best temperature for vaping dry herb is between 180 and 200 degrees Celsius but one feature to look for is an ability to control the temperature of your device. There are several different control options including adjustable knobs, digital displays or several preset options. Digital is the best choice since you can have more precise control which enables you to target the release of the specific cannabinoids in the weed.


Power Source


When choosing a dry herb vaporizer, the power source is quite important. A desktop unit will usually rely on a wall power outlet but some portable devices use butane while others have a rechargeable battery. If you choose a unit with an internal battery, you should always check that the manufacturer offers a lifetime warranty on the battery in case it fails.




One final consideration when choosing your dry herb vaporizer is the kind of accessories which may come with it or which may need to be purchased separately. You must remember that you will need to clean and recharge your device and certain parts may need to be replaced from time to time. Most vaporizers are supplied with sufficient accessories to get you off to a good start, however buying extras at a later stage can be expensive. Find out in advance which accessories you are going to need and how often you will need to buy them before making your final decision.


If you bear these helpful tips in mind, you will find it much quicker and easier to choose the right dry herb vaporizer to perfectly suit your needs.
