Best Dry Herb Vaporizer
So what exactly are the best dry herb Portable Vaporizers currently on the market? Well this is a hotly debated topic! One which could be argued all day and all night! Generally, the most sought after and most popular vapes at the moment are the portable dry herb vaporizers. More and more people are deciding to vape whilst on the go, which is leading to the portability of vaporizers being one of the most important factors these days. Today we’re going to be discussing some of the best dry herb portable vapes that are available at the moment. Before we get into this argument that nobody is ever going to win, lets take a lil trip back down memory lane, all the way back to school, cos we about to educate ya’ll on Vape efficiency and Convection Vs Conduction.
DRY HERB VAPORIZERS – EFFICIENCY
Everyone likes to talk about vapor production, which of course is an important factor in considering your purchase, but another equally important factor is the efficiency of a vaporizer. When we talk about efficiency we’re referring to how well a vaporizer extracts the medicinal ingredients from your material without reaching combustion temperature. We are commonly asked how you know when you’re finished a session since your materials are not burning, what you see is a colour change in the materials as they dry up once the vapor has been fully extracted. The efficiency of the extraction is a critical part of the puzzle and some vaporizers are superior to others. When you dump out your chamber of materials you want to see an even colouring throughout. Poor vaporizers will leave sections of the material charred on the edges in the closest points to the heating element while the inner materials in the chamber may be left un-vaped.
Convection vs Conductions Convection vaporizers are naturally more efficient in terms of material use versus conduction vaporizers. The reason for this is that with a convection based heating system, your materials are not constantly being heated. As I have discussed on several posts in the past, convection based vaporizers work by heating the air itself and not the material. Which is an easy mistake to make. The air passing through the material actually extracts the vapor so as long as you’re not drawing from the unit, no vapor will be produced. The only down-side of this heating method is that the speed of your draw may determine the quality vapor production. Vaporizer efficiency is even more important when considering a conduction based vaporizer. These units create vapor by heating your materials in a chamber where the materials are in direct contact with a heating element. Its very important that the materials near the heating source don’t reach combustion temperatures. Conduction vaporizers tend to produce a thicker and more robust vapor in comparison with convection based units where the vapor might be a little bit lighter. One downside of conduction vaporizers is that in order for them to work optimally, the chamber must be fully packed. So conduction based vaporizers with larger chambers mean that you will use more material over time and longer sessions.
