Cannabis is becoming more widely available across the nation, allowing aficionados of all things eco-friendly to finally enjoy their favourite flowers, waxes, and concentrates in the privacy of their own homes.
Cannabis experts and novices alike can finally put down the inexpensive gas station vape pens in favour of expertly-engineered devices that treat your cannabis the way it deserves now that the red tape is beginning to thin out.
So, What Precisely Is a Dry Herb Vaporizer and How Does It Operate?
Steven Jung, COO of PAX, begins, “Dry herb vaporizers gently heat cannabis using convection or conduction to produce an aerosol for inhalation. They are a fantastic solution for those who seek the benefits of flowers without the negative side effects of combustion. While some customers cherish the ritual or effects of flower vaporisation, others prize concentrates’ enhanced potency.
Beginners’ Dry Herb Vaporizers of Choice
The DAVINCI MIQRO is a superbly constructed loose leaf vaporizer that is both portable and fashionable, living up to its moniker in terms of inventiveness. With any dry herb that gets you going (High Life Farms’ Popcorn Buds = *Italian chef kiss*), fill up the simple-to-load personal-sized bowl and enjoy high-quality vapour produced by the Miqro’s porcelain oven. With a Zirconium airflow system, it guarantees excellent hits and is the ideal vape for light or first-time users who don’t need more than a quarter gramme of cannabis.
Weed Vaporizer Firefly 2+
This adaptable small Firefly 2+ Weed Vaporizer, the newest member of the large Firefly family, delivers portability and consistency without sacrificing its god-given flair. Firefly 2+ heats up quickly and offers a wide temperature range (200-500F) for both flowers and waxes using convection technology to deliver intense flavours and effects. Heat it closer to 425 degrees for hybrids or very aromatic strains, and try a lower temperature for mellower forms of cannabis like THCA or CBD.
Serious cannabis enthusiasts need serious vaporizers.
With an improved oven that cooks dried herb, waxes, and concentrates in just 20 seconds, the PAX 3 is a huge improvement over the PAX 2, and is considered a Gold Standard in the murky world of vaping. The Huue and Omura devices use the same heat-not-burn technology, which consistently produces tastes with intensity and scent that are incredibly pleasant. Is it just me, or does cannabis have a rotisserie chicken-like aroma?
According to Jung, “innovation and technology are getting better and better, and the quality of flowers available on the market is likewise rising to new heights. “At PAX, we’re most enthusiastic about our new Live Rosin with Natural Diamonds,” says PAX. “It’s not dry herb, but it’s a completely original product bringing unsurpassed purity and flavour to consumers at a revolutionary price,” she adds.
A fully adjustable smoking experience is made possible by the built-in temperature control, and switching from wax to herb is as simple as replacing the bottom piece. The PAX 3 is perfect for on-the-go vaping since it has simple temperature control and a small body. It warms up to a toasty temperature of 420 degrees Fahrenheit (great!) to make a strong sativa like White Durban hit even harder. Make sure you have enough of replacement screens on hand.
ARC Zeus GTS
Appreciate the PAX 3, the Zeus ARC GTS offers options for your vaping experience, which is why I like it. Put your preferred cannabis in the simple-to-load chamber or use the unique ArcPods, which work as a single-serve system a la Keurig for more convenient smoking while on the go. The Arc will roast the contents of a packed pod to perfection. Dare I advise Miss Grass’ terpene-rich, responsibly cultivated Blueberry Haze for its well-balanced hybrid high?
II Arizer Solo
It’s not necessary to be well-versed in the scene to understand how serious some cannabis users take their vaping practices. Arizer Solo II is a potent vaporizer that prioritises customization. The pure borosilicate glass vapour path offers the best flavour and effects from whatever you load into the multipurpose heater, and an LCD screen enables precise temperature control. Did we mention that the battery can last for up to three hours?
Desktop vaporizers for dry herbs
The Traditional Volcano
The Classic Volcano vaporizer is one of the most recognisable vaporizers there is. The Volcano is a sizable and commanding desktop dry herb vaporizer that uses a self-contained inflating balloon system to give a mega-hit of herbs or wax, as shown in movies like Super High Me. The Volcano combines convection heating and an isolated airpath for high-quality vapour, and it has 8 pre-set temperature settings. Simply choose your strain and start heating.
