The Benefits of Using Dry Herb Vaporizers
There are many cannabis products on the market for everyone, from everyday smokers to occasional users. Cannabis is available in a variety of forms—edible goodies, wax concentrates, liquids, and dry herbs. All products provide different effects, depending on how the cannabis user decides to ingest them. But with so many available products on the market, how does you choose the one that works for your lifestyle?
From all the cannabis products available, Canadian Vaporizers think you should consider using dry-herb vaporizers. Here’s why:
But First, What Is a Dry Herb Vaporizer?
If you’re new to the vaping world, figuring out what works for you is always a fun journey, one filled with many options. There are many ways to vape, and depending on how much you want to spend and what kind of effects you’re looking for, you may find certain vaporizers are more suitable than others.
Herbal vaporizers are easy-to-use and require the least expensive cannabis product, which makes them a perfect vape device for people new to this method.
The most popular vaping products utilize oil cartridges, but as the name suggests, herbal vaporizers heat dry herbs and plants. The dry herb vaporizer consists of just a few moving parts: the battery, the herb chamber (or oven), and the mouthpiece:
- Batteries. They’re either rechargeable via USB input, or they contain lithium ion batteries that are first removed and then recharged.
Herb Chamber. This is where you put your dry herbs. You can combine different strains of cannabis or add some other herbs, like lavender and sage. Depending on the style of vape you choose, herb chambers can be small and meant for casual use or large and intended for a group setting or heavier user.
- Dry herbs are heated by one of three ways: convection, conduction, or a combination of both.
- Mouthpiece. This is where the vapor is released. Longer mouthpieces give the vapor a chance to cool before hitting your lungs, which provides a more intense experience. Mouthpieces can be oblong, round, or flush with the design of the vape. The smaller and less conspicuous the mouthpiece, the easier it is to transport.
#1: It’s Convenient
One advantage of using a dry herb vaporizer is how easy and convenient it is to use. Simply click and go! Dry herb vaporizers, such as the Pulsar Flow, can easily fit right inside your pocket immediately after use without worry of burns or injury. You also won’t need to be concerned about your lighter going dead or blowing out in the wind.
And because you don’t have to fret about oil leaking out of the vaporizer, you can tote it around in your purse, gym bag, or wherever. Herbal vaporizers are small and discreet, making them an ideal choice for travelling.
#2: You Can Taste Subtle Flavors
Smoking marijuana completely burns the subtle flavors—also known as terpenes—of your herbal strain. Because your product is heated at a much lower temperature than if it was ignited, you’ll be able to taste the distinctly delicate and delicious flavor profiles that come from these organic compounds, which are the basis of all essential oils. You may get hints of lavender, lemon, rosemary, pine, peppermint, cloves, cinnamon, and even orchids.
With an herbal vaporizer, you’ll be able to build your arsenal of favorite strains, and you can even mix and match different herbs to complement your experience and receive the benefits of aromatherapy.
#3: Less Maintenance than E-Cigarettes
E-cigarettes need to be thoroughly cleaned on a regular basis to ensure your e-juice vaporizer is working at its optimal level and won’t break down. You need to make sure that all of the old residue is removed from the oil chamber before replacing it; simply running it under some water won’t do the trick. With an herbal vaporizer, all you need to do is clean out the contents with a brush or cotton swab, and rub it down with rubbing alcohol. You can resume your vaping experience right away.
#4: Your Money Goes Further
With dry herb vaporizers, you’re using much less product to achieve the same effect. Because cannabis is heated rather than burned, the dry herb is used up a lot slower, which ends up saving you money. Compared to concentrates and waxes, dry herbs are also more widely available and cheaper. Dry herb vaporizers also allow users to inhale micro-doses, which may not necessarily give them the full physical and mental effects of a full dose, but which will still trigger a response in the endocannabinoid system.
When you vape herbs, the product that’s left behind is known colloquially as Already Vaped Bud (AVB). Rather than throw it out, you can use the AVB to make edibles, which allows you to use up as much of your product as possible. When you smoke cannabis, all you’re left with at the bottom of the bowl is char.
#5: Better for Your Lungs
Perhaps the biggest benefit of vaping your dry herbs instead of rolling them into joints is the effect vaping has on your body. When combustion is involved, you’re immediately inviting unhealthy and even toxic chemicals into your lungs, brain, and blood stream. It doesn’t matter if you’re smoking tobacco or lavender or marijuana, the fumes from a lit product will contain carcinogens that will inevitably lead to a long list of health problems.
So, how is vaping better?
By virtue of cooking the product rather than burning it, you’re inhaling zero tar and much fewer carcinogenic compounds. When you smoke a marijuana cigarette, everything you ignite goes into your blood stream.
