When most people think of a vaporizer, they picture the box mod and atomizer style vapes used by e-liquid vapers, but that is not what we’re talking about today. Dry herb vaporizers are devices that are designed to take your ground herbs and heat them just enough to produce a vapor, but not enough to burn the herbs. These devices are a great option for anyone who does not want to smoke, but still wants to feel the effects of their herbs quickly. If you are looking for a dry herb vaporize for sale, there are a few things to consider before you buy.
All herbal vaporizers operate using the same set of principles. Herbs are loaded into a chamber and then heated until vapor is produced. This vapor will be made up of water vapor, flavor compounds, and various other active compounds from the herb. The most important thing when buying a vaporizer is to make sure that the oven and airway are completely food safe. Luckily, quality manufacturers are strict about the materials that go into their vapes, so dealing with products from trusted brands is always a good call.
Conduction Vs Convection
Another thing to consider when purchasing your vape is how it heats. Vaporizers either use conduction or convection heating. Conduction vaporizers heat herbs through direct contact with a hot surface. This means that vapers will probably have to stir their herbs periodically in order to ensure an even vaping. Convection vapes pass hot air through the herbs in order to heat them evenly. It is still a good idea to occasionally stir convection vapes, but on average they will outperform conduction vapes in terms of efficiency.
Now you might be wondering why anyone would choose a conduction vape and the reason is simple, size. Convection devices need to get much hotter than conduction devices, because they need to heat air hot enough to still be at the vaping temperature when it reaches the herb heating chamber. This takes both power and space to make the vape easy to use without getting too hot. Conduction vapes produce less heat and can be far more compact, which is why most portable dry herb vaporizers use conduction. High quality desktop vapes tend to use convection heat and precise temperature control to provide a superior vaping experience.
Portable or Desktop?
Now just because most portables use conduction does not make them bad. Over the years, companies have really perfected their portable designs to provide ample airflow to help improve the efficiency of their portables. If you are looking for a dry herb vaporizer for sale that you can take with you anywhere, then a portable is the perfect choice. There are also plenty of pure convection portables like the Storz & Bickel Crafty that offer an incredible vaping experience anywhere you go.
If you are looking for a vape that you can just keep at home, then desktop vaporizers are perfect. These larger dry herb vapes are designed to provide lots of tasty vapor and tend to have a variety of different designs. There are desktop units that you pick up and hit from a mouthpiece, vapes that have a flexible hose to take hits from, and others like the Volcano vaporizer that fill bags with vapor that you can remove and hit once they’re full.
