Dry Herb Vaporizer

There are many dry herb vaporizers to choose from on the market these days. Whether you’re looking for a portable, pen-sized vaporizer or something more powerful and versatile, there’s no shortage of options.

This is due to the advancements in technology with regard to the usage of marijuana as more and more people are accepting it for its medicinal properties. However, not all of them are created equally. It is important to do your research before buying a new vaporizer so that you know exactly what you want and why it will work best for you.

When you start to buy a vaporizer, it can be hard to know what is the best one for your needs. Whether you are looking for something that will fit in your pocket or something that will last all day, there is a dry herb vaporizer out there for everyone. So, if you need to know what to look for, here are a few things to consider.

Is it Portable?

The first thing you need to decide is whether or not you need a portable vaporizer, as there are different types of dry herb vaporizers out there.

One of the better portable vaporizers would be the Might Plus Vaporizer, which has many features, and can be bought from several stores, like Magic Vaporizers, or at physical retailers.

A pen vaporizer is a good example of a product that is portable, which is good because it means you can use it on-the-go. This may be great for beginners as it will allow them to use it while commuting but it’s not a good option if you aim to smoke in a group.

A desktop vaporizer needs to be plugged in, thus, it can only be used at home.

Battery Life

Before purchasing a dry herb vaporizer, you have to consider the battery as this will determine when and where you use it, as well as how often. The usual battery size of a portable vaporizer, which is small, may have certain effects on the experience.

You will be deterred if you find out that you’ve left the house with an uncharged vaporizer and you don’t have anything to use to charge it while on-the-go.

A Temperature that can change

You also have to consider if you can change the temperature, as this changes the experience. If you aren’t already aware, the temperature is hands down the most important part of vaping.

If your vaporizer allows you to change the temperature, then this is a good thing as it allows you to experiment during your first few tries in order for you to find your ideal setting because different cannabinoids vaporize at different temperatures. If you’re a complete newbie, however, and you are unsure of where to set the temperature, you should try to vape somewhere between 180-210°C (356-410°F) for the perfect result.

One thing about temperatures that have settings that allow you to change the temperature is that it is not a great tool to learn from and can be quite confusing. In situations like these, perhaps starting off with a pre-set vaporizer is the best option.

The Price

The saying ‘you get what you paid for’ is definitely a saying which applies to dry herb vaporizers as it is so true. You have to consider the price when you are buying a dry herb vaporizer as this can affect the quality. Make sure that you consider your budget as there many different types of vaporizers to buy from. For example, different brands are more expensive than others, and sometimes the battery life and its quality can also have an effect on the price.

How long does it take to use?

You have to consider how long it takes to set up because if you’re just going to be using it on the go, you don’t want a vaporizer that’s going to be a hassle in terms of setting up. You also have to consider how long it takes to clean, as this makes a difference if you are new to vaping with a dry herb vaporizer.

Heating Methods Used

There are different heating methods that are used with dry herb vaporizer which are namely the convection method and the conduction method. One heats the herb directly while the other heats the surface surrounding the herb. You also get hybrid heating which is sort of like a fusion of the two. You have to choose one, which will work best for you and base that off on the experiences of others.
