How To Pick The Best Dry Herb Vaporizer

Dry Herb Vaporizers are perfect for discrete smoking, with the ultimate advantage of making smoke easier on the consumer's lungs as compared to other methods of consumption. Due to precise temperature controls, Dry Herb Vaporizers of all kinds, don’t actually combust the herb material. Instead, they boil cannabinoids and terpenes into a vapor which doesn’t get so hot as to burn the throat and lungs of the user. With no direct flame, Dry Herb Vaporizers heat the cannabis through a convection or conduction heating element, ensuring cannabinoids and terpenes are vaporized with no tar, embers, or contaminants introduced into the body when used correctly.

For the health conscious and active cannabis connoisseur, the choice is simple. Also, due to the lack of fire, the smell left lingering after a session is significantly reduced. Dry flower vaporizers come in a variety of tabletop and pocket-sized options, at varying price points, so there is a budget-friendly option on Mile High Glass for everyone.

Features to Consider

Keep in mind the life of the battery, ease of temperature change, and time it takes to heat up for first use when shopping for a Dry Herb Vaporizer. All Dry Herb Vaporizers require the flower material to be ground fine, so consider buying a grinder to make this process easy. When the cannabis is fine enough to vaporize, it should also be completely dry. Wet herb does not vaporize properly and is hard to clean out of the heating chamber inside the vaporizer. How tightly the heating chamber should be packed varies depending on the model of Dry Herb Vaporizer, read all instructions included to maximize the power of vaporization and get the best smoke possible. Cleaning vaporizers often ensure excellent flavor with every single use.

Importance of Temperature Control

Some dry cannabis vaporizers use heat settings, while others offer entirely customizable temperatures allowing you to raise and lower them by degree. Both options are safe as long as the user knows what they are doing. Vaporizing flower above 420℉ is not recommended, anything above this temperature approaches combustion and gives the cannabis a burned, harsh taste. One of the most significant advantages of vaporizing is the superior taste, by heating the product on a low temperature you boil cannabinoid and terpenes. Terpenes, or the oils found in all botanical plants which give them their distinctive tastes and aromas, may be linked to specific effects according to new research. In fact, it is theorized, terpenes are the main reason people prefer one strain of cannabis over another. The effects of “Indica” and “Sativa” really boil down to the science of terpenes.

For example, linalool is found in many strains of cannabis, as well as plants like lavender, and humans have used plants with high concentrations of linalool since ancient times to reduce stress. Terpenes have a lower boiling point than THC so using a Dry Herb Vaporizer is crucial to get the most terpenes possible from the cannabis into the body.

Carefully Consider Battery Life

With so many models of Dry Herb Vaporizers on the market, the frequency of use, and the use in group sessions needs to be a factor in choosing the perfect one. Nothing is worse than having a session ready, to begin with, a group of friends, and finding the battery is dead. This can be avoided with some tabletop units which plug directly into the wall. However, these types of Dry Herb Vaporizers are really only suitable for at home vaping, as they don’t offer any portability. Most cordless units will charge with a USB cord; heavy cannabis users should pay extra attention to how long the manufacturer claims the battery should last. Many high-end models come with battery light indicators to make this an easy process for the owner.
