How they work

First and foremost, when it comes to vaporizers, one of the very first things that you should know is how they work. Vaporizers are interesting and they make use of both newer and older types of technology to work as efficiently as possible.

When looking at a dry herb vaporizer, something to note is that they vaporize the weed itself, and do not concentrate. This means that extreme temperatures are needed for the vapor to be released. Within a dry herb vaporizer, you have what is called the chamber and this is where the weed is placed. When buying your vaporizer, you will have to choose between conduction or a convection heating method.

Conduction heating methods make use of heated plates that will heat up to extreme temperatures and therefore heat the weed too. This heat distribution is not even, however, but it is still effective. On the other hand, convection heating methods are just like that of convection ovens where the heated air is circulated throughout the chamber. This offers even heat distribution but is also a bit more expensive.

What do they consist of?

When looking at a dry herb vaporizer, since it is all one thing many people don't consider that the vaporizer is made up of different components that can differ from vaporizer to vaporizer. However, they all have the same components.

The prominent parts of every vaporizer include the body. which holds everything together, the mouthpiece, the chamber for the weed, and the battery. Some vaporizers will have an LCD screen where you can adjust the temperature controls.

These different parts can differ in type from vaporizer to vaporizer, but they all are composed of these elements, and you will find them in every dry herb vaporizer.

How to use one

Many people are under the impression that using a vaporizer is tricky and complicated, especially if you are a beginner. But it's actually one of the easiest and most convenient consumption methods around.

First and foremost, it is a dry herb vaporizer, so it uses the cannabis flower. You need to grind the flower a reasonable amount and then place it in the chamber. Once it is in the chamber, you can proceed to preheat the device.

This is just to ensure you get the best experience possible. From there you can set the temperature that you want and just vape away. It's incredibly easy to use.

How to clean one

Cleaning your dry herb vaporizer is essential. If you do not do this, the device will slowly start to pack up and stop working.

Cleaning is as simple as dusting out the chamber after every session. It is important to deep clean it every few sessions to extend its life span and ensure it is working to its full potential.

The grind and temperature

Last but not least, you must always ensure to grind your weed before you pack it into your chamber as this will allow for the maximum surface area for the heat to penetrate. This is how you can get the most out of your weed.
