With there being many different categories and sub-categories of vaporizes nowadays, it can get tricky not get the different types of vapes available online mixed up with each other. But to keep it simple, with dry herb vapes there are 3 different types of vaporizers. There are vaporizer pens, portable vaporizers, and desktop vaporizers. Now, they all can be used to vaporize medical marijuana, but they all have different heating methods. So first of all, what is a dry herb vape?
What is a Dry Herb Vape
A dry herb vape is basically another type of e-cig, and as technology got more and more advanced, companies found a way to help people that didn’t really like smoking, or struggled to get that perfectly smooth hit, but still liked the feeling of it. So if you’re a person that already is accustomed to having lung problems, or for whatever reason you just have a hard time smoking in general, I strongly recommend you try a dry herb vaporizer.
Recent studies have shown that most people that have switched from smoking legal herbs to using a vaporizer have reported that they feel a lot better after the fact than smoking. I remember a friend of mine trying to quit smoking a while back way before I knew anything about vaping, and once he tried the dry herb vaporizer, he was convinced that it was a life changer and decided not to stop because it gave him a more “clear-headed” feeling.
This is due to the fact that when you’re vaping, you’re not actually burning the bud, just heating it up to a high enough temperature for the cannabinoids to be released into vapor, which is much better for your body overall than smoke.
Benefits of using a Vaporizer
- Healthier Experience- Similar to how an e-cig is healthier for you than smoking cigarettes, using a vaporizer will give you a much safer and healthier experience than smoking marijuana directly. A vaporizer will have an energy source that will give it power, along with a metal coil that heats up to a vaporizing temperature. Vapor is much better for your body than marijuana smoke is, even though it’s much safer than cigarette smoke, that doesn’t mean it isn’t bad for you.
- Saves You Money- Once you start using a vaporizer, one of the things you’ll notice is that you are saving a lot of money. This happens because of 2 reasons. 1). You don’t have to use as much of your dry herbs to get the same effect because you’re basically getting the pure THC out of the vape. 2). Your only supposed to fill up the heating chamber about 75% of the way so it won’t allow you to put more without it burning unevenly which is something you really don’t want. Another reason you end up saving more money, in the long run, is because when you think about it, what do you use for smoking legal dry herbs? A bong? A pipe? Joint papers? Blunt wraps? What happens when my bong breaks? All these devices and pieces we get usually add up along with the cost of the actual herb, so when you factor all that in, plus the fact that it’s on the go, you clearly save some money and a lot of time using a vaporizer.
- No More Stinch- Ever hung out with a person that smokes all the time? Whether it be cigarette smoke or marijuana smoke, if they are basically non-stop smokers there’s a stench that seems to follow you. It could be your clothes, or your house, or your car, or even your breath lol! But by using a vaporizer, you eliminate that horrible smoke odor which will make you a lot more approachable or tolerable to the non-smokers.
- Discrete- So whether you smoke or not, you can almost immediately smell the smoke on a person when they’ve smoked a lot during the day. Especially if they recently just finished smoking. In my opinion, the most important benefit to a dry herb vape is its ability to be hidden and discrete. Have you ever been in a situation where you are overwhelmed with so much at one time or your at a really stressful event that requires your attendance? What if you were able to take a “chill” break without worrying about someone noticing? Well now with a vaporizer, you can sneak away into the bathroom, in the back corner, you can basically go anywhere and take a hit without anyone noticing because vapor doesn’t stink nearly as much as marijuana smoke. Not to mention their portability.
What to Look for When Buying a Vaporizer online
Most people believe that in order for a vape to work properly, it much reach a temperature at least between 338°F and 392°F. With that being said, they actually have vaporizers that come with temperature control settings, allowing you to use different types of legal dry herbs because they all vaporize at different temperatures.
Another thing you want to make sure of is that when you’re using a vaporizer, you wanna make sure that your bud is grounded up nice and fine. Making sure everything is evenly spread out and that you’re not putting too much can be really crucial when it comes to the vaping efficiency. If you use large nugs for your vape, it won’t allow you to get even heat distribution, and then you’d be basically wasting all that perfectly herb.
They usually don’t take too long to heat up, I’d say on average about 30 seconds. But that’s not to say that all vapes don’t vape at different speeds because they do. Like a Desktop vaporizer can take up to 2 min, while sometimes a portable vaporizer can take up to 90 seconds.
Again when purchasing products online, I strongly recommend picking items that have at least a couple of good reviews to make sure you know what you’re getting.
