The Best Dry Herb Vaporizers

One of the latest trends in vaping has been the breakthrough of genuine high quality, portable dry herb vaporizers as an affordable mass-market product. Largely, this is a knock-on advantage of the ever developing technology behind e liquid vaporizers - especially in regards to battery life, power and performance.

While vaporizers have been around for a long time for herbal use, they have typically either been static units due to their size or rather under-powered when portable. Dry herb vaporizers are pretty new to lots of people, so let's take a look at some of the most frequently asked questions.

By Dry Herb Vaporizer You Mean Cannabis?

By Dry Herb Vaporizer You Mean Cannabis?

It would be a disservice to automatically associate dry herb vaporizers with cannabis, however there is some degree of provenience with the wide-scale recent decriminalisation of the drug in some US States (where the majority of these products are designed). With vaping, whatever starts in the States will make it's way over here - usually pretty quick - and there's an undeniable market for these devices in the UK too.

However cannabis is not the only dry herb out there, and certainly not the only reason why people find the dry herb vaporizers such great products. There's hundreds of medicinal herbs that are suitable for use in such devices. Examples would include chamomile for sleepiness, peppermint for energy and lavender for mellowness. Dry herb vaporizers allow people to enjoy 'smoking' these herbs in a safe and easily controllable manner without needing to mix with tobacco or take through a shisha based device.

First of all, they're still in their infancy and good models can be expensive - on the plus side however there's very few parts that will need changing very often. VaporFi produce really high standard products - both their 'Stratus' and 'Orbit' are comparatively affordable and perform very well even with regular/prolonged use. Also they warm up quick - look for devices like these that have a good range of variable temperatures too as it can make a surprising difference with flavour and duration.

Likewise, bear in mind the speed that the device warms up. Around a minute is pretty ideal - this shows not only that the dry herb vaporizer is well powered, but also that it will likely have excellent temperature control and consequently deliver decent and consistent vape safely.

Oven capacity and structure is also quite important - try and look towards large capacity with a nice even balance - this helps prevent the herbs from burning. Check out reviews for ease of cleaning too, as this can become an issue (some brands provide clean-up kits that can be worth their weight in gold!).

Do Dry Herb Vaporizers Also Take Liquids?

Do Dry Herb Vaporizers Also Take Liquids?

Not directly, although there are some cutting edge products that have detachable units allowing for a liquid tank to replace a herb 'oven' and vice versa. These are also the best e liquid vape devices on the market thanks to having a huge amount of power behind them. If you feel like treating yourself the V2 Pro Series 7 is the best 3-in-1 vaporizer on the market right now, and performs all roles superbly and without compromise.
