Types of Dry Herb Vaporizers for Beginners

What are the Different Types of Dry Herb Vapes? 

If you’re looking to get into the expansive universe of dry herb vaping, it can be confusing at first. With so much technical talk and different types of equipment, it can be tricky to find a starting point. However, the experts at DirectVapor are here to break it all down for you. Here is everything you need to know about the different types of dry herb vapes….

Category 1: Portable vs. Desktop Vapes

The most obvious difference between different types of dry herb vapes is their size and setup. Portable vapes are compact, battery powered, and meant to be carried in your pocket, purse, backpack, or glove compartment. They are grab-and-go, and are often simpler to use. Desktop vapes on the other hand, are larger, more elaborate devices that are stationary and meant to be used in the comfort of your home. They are more complex to operate, have larger components, and generally need to be plugged into the wall to operate. It’s important to think about your lifestyle and whether you want something that is less-powerful but ultra-convenient or if you want to sit down with a premium, albeit more expensive device. 

Category 2: On-Demand vs. Session Vapes

Another important aspect of dry herb vaping to consider is how you want to enjoy your herbs. Do you prefer to take quick hits here and there throughout the day? Or would you rather enjoy a whole herb at once? 

On-Demand vapes are designed for one-hitter action. You can power them up and take a single hit or as many hits as you want and then power them down. Session vapes, on the other hand, are designed to provide a continuous vape experience, akin to lighting up a traditional joint and smoking the whole thing. Remember, there’s no right or wrong in dry herb vaping, it’s all up to what works for your vibe and routine. 

Category 3: Conduction vs. Convection vs. Hybrid Heating

Ok…here’s where choosing a vape gets a little more difficult. There are several methods dry herbs use to heat up the flower so you can inhale it. We can break dry herb vapes down into these main heating categories:

Conduction Heating Vapes: With these vapes, the heating surface comes into direct contact with the dry herb to generate vapor. These are the most commonly found options on the market. 

Convection Heating Vapes: These vapes do not heat the herbs directly, but rather heat it through the air surrounding it. These types of vapes are often preferred because they allow you to vape herbs without burning it. Many people go for these types of vapes since they use herbs more slowly, have less of a smell, and are more discreet. 

Hybrid Heating: These types of vapes use innovative processes to combine conduction and convection heating to power your session.
