Dry Herb Vaporizers

The Vaporizer industry is massive, it is continuing to grow at a nearly unbelievable rate as the different states in the US continue to expand their dedicated dry-herb production. As this continues, we see exceptional growth in the vapor industry with different and new vaporizers being produced. And so we begin to see that there are many new vaporizers beginning to appear on the market.

Before we get into the best of the best dry herb vaporizers, we'll be taking a closer look at the efficiency levels of dry herb vapes, and what can be done to increase efficiency. Also, we'll discuss the main components that are in the majority of dry herb vaporizers, the old conundrum; Convection VS Conduction.

Convection vs Conduction

Let's talk about Efficiency

We refer efficiency 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've finished a session since your materials are not burning, what you see is a color 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 coloring throughout.

Convection

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. Convection based vaporizers work by heating the air itself and not the material.

The air passing through the material extracts the vapor so as long as you're not drawing from the unit, no vapor will be produced. The one down-side of this heating method is that the speed of your draw may affect vapor production.

Conduction

Conduction based Vaporizers create vapor by heating your materials in a chamber where the materials are in direct contact with a heating element. It's very important that the materials near the heating source don't reach combustion temperatures.

These units tend to produce a thicker and more robust vapor in comparison with convection based units where the vapor might be lighter. In order for them to work optimally, the chamber must be fully packed.
