A dry herb vaporizer is an electronic device used to vaporize material such as dried herbs, waxes, oils, or concentrates on producing inhalable vapors. Vaporizing these substances has a much more healthful experience than smoking them can because the device only heats the material without igniting it; hence, no combustion occurs. Dry herb vape pens are smaller and simpler portable versions of vape pens typically used with larger devices.
Before you start your journey into vaping dry herbs, it may be helpful to know what dry herb weed pens are and how to get one if you don’t already have one.
In a vape pen, the dry herb is heated directly by a battery-operated electrical coil; the hot coil vaporizes the material. Because the heat doesn’t come from burning, there is no smoke or odor. Most vaporizer pens don’t even require any strength to inhale; it is possible to inhale a full-strength hit of the vapor while taking only a tiny first hit! And because there are no combustion products in the chamber, nothing is released into your lungs, so there is no additional smoke or odor. Now that you know how vaping works with a dry herb vape pen and what they can do for you and your health, let’s go over some of the things to consider before buying one.
One of the best questions to ask yourself is, “What am I going to use this vape pen for?” If you’re planning on using it while outside or at a party, we recommend buying a vaporizer pen with above-average battery life, so you won’t have to stop and recharge it. If you’re planning on vaporizing herbs in your car, make sure your vape pen has an auto shut-off feature. Some vaporizers have adjustable temperature settings allowing you to control the strength of the hit by changing how hot the coil gets; other models are preset at one temperature, which may need to be hot enough for some people (and too hot for others).
When using a dry herb vape pen, you have the option of what kind of material you want to use. Some vaporizers can only be used on herbs (and waxy oils), while others can be used on both dry herbs and concentrates (waxes, oils). Remember, an oil-based concentrate will clog up a dry herb vape pen and can damage the coils. It’s essential to read your vaporizer’s instructions before loading your material, so you know how much to use and how often to stir it so it doesn’t get too hot.
Not all vaping pens are created equal; there is an endless variety of shapes, sizes, and features available regarding vaporizers.
