Herb vaporizers explained

What is a portable dry herb vaporizer?

Dry herb vaporizers are portable devices which heat up the ground plant mixture just below the point of combustion. This makes the essential oils volatile and ready to be inhaled. Compared to traditional methods, with dry herb vapes you don’t get any smoke and ash, therefore no carcinogens.

These vaporizers work either by conduction or by convection and are powered by a built in or removable battery. It can take between a couple of seconds to up to a minute for device to reach optimum temperature for vaping. Current from the battery heats up the chamber, which is made from stainless steel or ceramic. Depending on the type of chamber, placement of the chamber, type of air path and mouthpiece, dry herb vaporizers offer different types of experiences. Cheaper devices have the chamber right below the plastic or silicone mouthpiece and use convection to heat up the plant mixture. More expensive portable vapes have the chamber at the bottom, longer air paths, ceramic chambers and glass mouthpieces. Some models even use convection heating, which makes them even more efficient.

Short history of herb vaporizers

Herbs have been used for their medicinal, health and recreational purposes since ancient times. The first mentions of vaporization can be traced back to 5th century BC Egypt. Herodotus talks in his book about a tribe called the Scythians. These people would put hemp seeds and put it on hot rocks in order to inhale vapor that was produced.

Later on, somewhere between 1542 - 1605 AD, physician Irfan Shaikh invented the first hookah or water pipe. He was a member of Akbar the Great’s court, who ruled in ancient Afghanistan – a place situated on the modern India-Pakistan border.

The first recorded patent for a portable loose leaf vaporizer belongs to Herbert Gilbert. This Korean veteran registered his blueprint in the United States back in 1963.

Then in 1989 a mystery man who called himself Dr. Lunglife wrote a manuscript in which he detailed the blueprints for a vaporization device. He used commonly available Radio Shack parts and his discovery was published in the High Times.

However, the first publicly used dry herb vaporizer was the brainchild of Eagle Bill. The Cherokee medicine man built a product inspired from the Egyptian methods of marijuana vaporization back in 1993. Ten years later he released the 'Shake and Vape' – one of the most iconic portable herb vaporizers to date.

The 'Vapir Classic' is the closest to what we refer today as electronic dry herb vaporizers. Released in the year 2000 by AIR2 this was the first device to feature a battery pack. Larger and heavier than most modern day vaporizers, it came with digital temperature control to prevent combustion.

The main types of dry herb vaporizers

Electronic dry herb vaporizers fall into three separate categories: pen vaporizer, portable vaporizers and desktop vaporizers. Pen vaporizers are the cheapest and the most basic while desktop plant vaporizers are the most expensive but offer the best flavor and vapor and are great for shared sessions.

Pen vaporizers consist of a small built-in battery and a small chamber for dry herb. They usually have a single temperature preset and are mostly intended for beginners and medicinal use. Flavor and vapor are not that great but they do a decent job at extracting the essential oils from the plant.

Portable vaporizers are the most commonly used and the most popular. These come in a variety of shapes and sizes but they all serve a single purpose: to offer a great on the go dry herb experience. The oven usually a total capacity between 0.2 – 0.5 grams and the internal or removable battery is rated for 1,200 – 3,400mAh. Portable herb vapes usually have one or more temperature presets and some models even feature precise temperature adjustment in 1F increments. The oven is made from ceramic, stainless steel, aluminum, or glass and it uses either conduction of convection heating.

Desktop vaporizers are the most expensive and they produce the most vapor. However, they are not that portable. These devices don't have an internal battery and they need to be plugged in to a mains power supply. They offer the most accurate temperature control and the experience is hands down one of the best you can have.

Vape pens vs portable dry herb vaporizers

There’s a big difference between regular vape pens for dry herb and portable vaporizers. Vape pens are designed to be stealthy and easy to use but they don’t score that high when it comes to vapor production, flavor or battery life.

Dry herb vaporizers on the other hand are deigned to get the most from your botanical. These have much bigger batteries, complex heating systems, and bigger chambers. Flavor and vapor production are pretty good, especially with the high end models. They literally take the experience to a whole new level.

Convection heating or conduction heating?

Most dry herb vaporizers we tested use conduction heating. This is a very easy to implement technology and can produce pretty good results. Conduction means heat is transferred to the ground botanical by direct contact. This method isn’t that expensive, works well and accounts for good vapor and flavor. The cons are uneven vaporization, having to constantly stir through the mixture and a higher risk of partial combustion. Convection heating is more complicated and therefore more expensive to implement. Convection means the dry herb is heated indirectly, though a steady stream of hot air. This accounts for much better flavor, and more consistency throughout the session. The risk of combustion is also very low. First con of this method however is the high price of convection vaporizers. Second con is that these devices need constant and more in depth cleaning. The chamber can easily get clogged with vaporized residue. This in turns stops the steam of hot air from uniformly reaching the dried botanical.

With conduction heating the plant material needs to be compacted inside the chamber. In the case of convection the mixture has to be looser so that air can circulate freely through it.

Main parts of a dry herb vaporizer

Any portable dry herb vaporizer consists of three main parts: the body, the chamber and the mouthpiece. The body can have a single button or multiple buttons. Dry herb vapes with a single button usually have one or more LED notification lights. These are the easiest to use. Multiple button vaporizers are a bit more complex. They usually have temperature adjustment, and LCD display and allow for more control over the vape experience. The body also holds the battery. This can be built-in or user replaceable. Capacity ranges from 1000 - 3000mAh and usually the bigger, the better.

The chamber is placed on the top or bottom part and it’s usually covered by a door or by the mouthpiece itself. This is made from ceramic or stainless steel. Usual capacity is between 0.2 - 0.5 grams. When the chamber is placed on the bottom of the device, vapor has more time to cool since it travels a longer path. Last but not least we have the mouthpiece. This can be made from plastic, silicone or glass. Glass mouthpieces usually allow the vapor to cool down before it reaches the lips. On some vaporizers the mouthpiece is completely flat. This might seem a bit odd at first, but the overall experience is pretty good.

Multi purpose vaporizers

As the name probably says it, multi purpose vaporizers can work with either e-liquids, dry herb and waxes. These devices come with interchangeable chambers, each one destined for a particular type of use.

They offer great versatility, especially in the case of users who enjoy both e-liquids and ground botanical or waxes.

Dry herb vapes for beginners

We recommend beginners to look for an entry level vaporizer. This usually doesn’t cost as much as high end devices but delivers a good amount of vapor and flavor. Heating type is usually conduction, and the chamber is placed on top.

Starter dry herb vaporizers come with a single button and one temperature setting. They have an LED notification light which indicates when it’s ready to vape. Battery life is not that great, and it’s not the type of device intended for shared sessions.

Loose leaf vaporizers for intermediate users

Mid range dry herb vaporizers are very popular. These devices usually have more than one temperature preset and the chamber is also placed on top. Battery life is a lot better than on entry level vapes.

The chamber can be either stainless steel or ceramic and the regular capacity is between 0.2 - 0.3 grams. In terms of vapor production and flavor it all depends on brand and model. However the experience is noticeable improved in comparison to low budget vaporizers.

Portable dry herb vaporizer for experienced users

Experienced users usually look for the best devices money can buy. These state of the art vaporizers include high end features and their batteries are amazing. Everything from Zirconia or glass air-paths to Bluetooth, smartphone app, and convection heating.

Vapor production on such a device is far superior to entry level or mid range products. Flavor is pure, odor is concealed and multiple temperature presets allow a more in depth tuning of the overall experience.

Grinder and grind tips for portable dry herb vaporizers

The experience you get from a portable dry herb vaporizer is often directly linked to how finely you grind your botanical and how well you pack it. It's very important to understand which type of grinder to use and how to pack the chamber in order the get the most of your device.

Dry herb grinders come in a variety of shapes and sizes; however the most commonly used are the cylindrical models. A good grinder has to be made from a high quality, lightweight metal like aluminum and feature a ceramic nonstick coating. Other features like magnetic lids and lift-up stainless steel screens are also big pros to look for. A good grinder will definitely improve on aspects as vapor production and flavor and that's why it's best to avoid the cheaper, non-reliable models.

The way you grind and load the oven also has a big impact on overall performance. If you do it properly you will be able to enjoy better flavor as well as smoother and richer vapor. It's always better to grind your dry herb as finely as possible. This is will improve the overall experience on the wide majority of portable vaporizers. A 4-piece metal grinder does wonders in this case.

When packing the chamber there is one important aspect you need to consider: does your vaporizer use conduction or convection heating? Conduction vaporizers work better with a tightly packed oven, however you will need to stir the material from time to time in order to keep the vaporization process uniform. Convection vaporizers on the other hand require hot air to pass through the bowl and this means you need to pack the herb loosely. An important tip is to only pack the oven up to 80 – 90% of its capacity. This will ensure great performance and the best possible flavor.

The minimum amount of herb you can pack into the bowl of your dry herb vape is so that it's uniformly spread on the bottom surface area. However, you will always get the best results when packing up to 50% or higher. In this case use a screen on top of the botanical to compress it.

What are the recommended temperatures for vaping dry herb

The temperature you use with your dry herb vaporizer will always have a big impact on vapor production, flavor and its medicinal or recreational properties. For instance terpenes, which are associated with flavor, require a lower temperature to become volatile than cannabinoids. This is why it's important to understand what to expect from your vaporizer when selecting a certain value.

For a mellow, feel good high we recommend setting your dry herb vaporizer to around 320F (or 160C). This temperature is perfect to enjoy all the deep flavored terpenes as well as some of the cannabinoids.

A value of around 385F (or 195C) is best for functional relaxation, sensory awareness, and moderate euphoria. An energetic high from all the cannabinoids found inside the plant mixture.

For a deep body and mind relaxation we recommend anything higher than 385F, but particularly 425F (or 218C). This is where all sedative effects kick in and you experience heavy relaxation, intense euphoria and full pain relief.
