Dry Herb Vaporizer

Dry Herb Vaporizer

If you want the ultimate way to enjoy your favorite herbs, consider using a dry herb vaporizer like many people have.

Dry herb vaporizers were created for the use of Cannabis.  A dry herb vaporizer will heat the oils in your herbs to produce a smooth and flavorful vapor you can inhale, much like a dab hit, we call raw dabs. Combustion or smoking destroys your herbs and releases harmful tar and carcinogens.  Cannabis dry herb vaporizing preserves the "FLAVOR".  Vaping also has a much higher bioavailability than combustion, so you will find yourself using less.

What are dry herb vaporizers, and how do they vaporize cannabis?

When using a dry herb vaporizer you want to keep the temperature under 450°F.  A dry herb vaporizer works by heating your herbs to the point that the cannabinoids, flavonoids, and terpenes are boiled off into a vapor you can inhale.  This is also decarboxylating the THCa into THC, so you can even eat the leftover duff.   The vapor produced has a great flavor.  The first few inhales are so full of terpene flavors are they are more volatile and vape sooner than cannibinoids.  As you roast the herbs, new roasted flavors are unlocked specific to each strain.  We call this the art of vaporizing.

Who is a dry herb vape for?

A dry herb vaporizer is a machine that can be used by anyone who wants to enjoy the benefits of cannabis without the downfalls of combustion. Some of the reasons why someone might prefer a dry herb vape over other methods of consumption are:

The need to remove the more harmful effects such as tars and carcinogens

To experience the art of vaporizing and truly taste cannabis’ full flavor or any herb

Compared to edibles you can control your intake and effects of cannabis.  Inhalation is much faster and controllable than edibles.

SAVE MONEY!  Yes, with the elimination of combustion that destroys so much, and the higher bioavailability you will save on your herb consumption!

Different Types of Dry Herb Vapes

Desktop Dry Herb Vaporizers

A desktop dry herb vape is built for connoisseurs who enjoy vaporizing cannabis at home.  The dry herb vaporizer like the Silver Surfer is larger than a portable one, and it has a power cord that must be plugged into an outlet.  This allows for the ultimate in vaporizing as most utilize convection heating over conduction offering on-demand extraction and the ultimate flavor.  These desktops come in 3 forms, a whip system (the best flavor), a ballon or bag system (great for weak lungs) or a hybrid like the Super Surfer.

While a desktop dry herb vaporizer is meant for at home, they are the perfect companion for your heady glass or any glass for that matter.  A dry herb vaporizer will keep your rig, waterpipe, bong, or whatever you call it iwth a water pipe adapter, MUCH CLEANER! 

When looking at a desktop dry herb vaporizer also consider if it only does flower, or both flower and concentrates like the Elev8 line of desktops.  Concentrates are a bit more messy than flower, therefor a separate setup like the dab set up is the way to go.

Portable Dry Herb Vaporizers

A portable dry herb vape is what the typical shop or consumer will reach for.  The portable dry herb vape can work at home, and on the go.  But, no portable works like a desktop, but they come close, they have unique flavors as they use conduction typically over convection to save battery power and keep the dry herb vape small.  A good portable dry herb vape like the SideKick is comfortable in your hand and can easily take a new battery for heavy users, or long trips.  

Dry herb portable vapes are great for anyone who LOVES cannabis but hates combustion and is on the go

Important features to consider before buying a dry herb vaporizer.

 

  • Price: You must always think about your budget, especially in today's world.  Remember, a good vape will save you money on cannabis consumption.  Price will also be affected whether it was produced in the USA or another country.  Remember you get what you pay for in life, and you are the judge on who you support with your hard-earned money.  Elev8 offers a line of vaporizers to meet any budget iwth the Da Buddha as a great beginners desktop, with the desktops all built in Colorado Springs with glass from Elev8 Premier.
  • Size: If you want to use your dry herb vaporizer at home, and really want to experience the art of vaporizing, a desktop vaporizer is the dry herb vape for you. If you want to use your vaporizer on the go, or LOVE vaping, you will need a portable dry herb vaporizer.
  • Conduction: A conduction dry herb vaporizer uses a hot surface to heat the herbs.  These dry herb vaporizers are often more affordable, heat up faster, are MUCH smaller.
  • Convection: A convection dry herb vaporizer uses hot air to heat up the herbs, releasing and activating the oils into a flavorful vapor. These dry herb vaporizers are often pricier but they have their benefits like more even heating, better airflow, and a smoother flavor.  They are workhorses, and some have been around for a long time, like the Silver Surfer dry herb vaporizer that was created in 2004.
  • Hybrid Heating: Hybrid heating combines conduction and convection in dry herb vaporizers. Many portables will utilize the heat from the conduction heater to help in convection heating also, much like the SideKick portable dry herb vaporizer.
  • Chamber Size: The bigger the bowl, the more cannabis or herbs you can fit in.  The more herbs, the bigger the hit will be.  There is more herb to extract!    Desktop dry herb vaporizers tend to have larger chambers, and if you want more, Elev8 can get you any size chamber made for your Elev8 dry herb vaporizer.  
  • Vapor quality: A dry herb vaporizer will give you the best vapor quality when it utilizes the best materials in construction, much like all the Elev8 line of dry herb vaporizers.  What is the heater made of?  A metal heater will impact the flavor, and why Elev8 uses a “ruby ceramic” heater.  The intake and whip path will affect the flavor, so glass seems to be the way to go for the ultimate in a flavorful vapor hit.  
  • Customer Service:  How long has the company been making dry herb vaporizers?  Elev8 has been making the Silver Surfer since 2004 providing white glove customer service treatment.  They can help with any repair, or custom order or guide you in the right direction for what you need, want, and all within your budget.
  • Warranty: Will the company stand behind its dry herb vaporizer?  A 3 year is the standard warranty for a desktop and a 1-2 year is the standard for a portable dry herb vaporizer.  The bigger question to consider is will the company stand behind the warranty, and will the company be the during and after the warranty.  This is where Elev8 shines, over and over again!

Our dry herb vaporizers are considered to be safer than smoking producing less tars and carcinogens along with many other things you do not want from combustion.  A vaporizer like the Silver Surfer is even meant to be left on 24/7 to utilize the aroma top feature for aromatherapy.

Can you vape Kief or Hash in a dry herb vaporizer?

The best way to enjoy hash or keif is to mix it with some flower.  The flower will absorb it and allow it to vaporizer well.  

Do dry herb vaporizers smell?

Yes, vaporizing cannabis flower will smell a lot like dabbing.  It is a lot lighter in smell than smoking cannabis and is less noticeable.

How to tell when dry herb is done in a vaporizer?

As you vaporize your cannabis flower, the herbs will change from green to brown.  The darker the brown, the more you are extracting, so this is good!  Just do not go too far and let it combust.  It will be very hard and the flavor may not be what you like about vaping.  But there is still a lot of goodness in the flower, so save it and eat it like Jonny Duff.

Can you smoke on a dry herb vaporizer?

When learning your new dry herb vaporizer this can happen.  Your heat is too high, or you are inhaling too slowly.  Generally, keep your inhale speed and adjust your vaporizer temperature.  If you try to smoke the left over duff, it will taste horrible.  

Do dry herb vaporizers work as well as smoking?

Dry herb vaporizers are actually more effective than smoking.   It is simple, they have a higher bioavility and eliminate combustion, ultimately allowing for more of the good stuff.  Cumbustion destroys a lot of the active compounds found in cannabis.

Are dry herb vaporizers illegal?

No they are not as they can be used for any type of dry flower such as lavender, mint, etc.

Is dry herb vaping safer than oil vaping?

We feel a dry herb vape is the best way to go.  You get to see and smell the cannabis flower in all its beauty.  Oil vaping is made many ways and that is a whole other story.
