The benefits of using a dry herb vaporizer.


When many people think of cannabis, they automatically think of lighting up a joint, or using a bong/pipe. Many people overlook the option of using a dry herb vaporizer. Dry herb vaporizers are an excellent way to reap the benefits of cannabis without combustion .Vaping seems to reduce the harmful lung effects of smoking.


How do dry herb vaporizers work?


Cannabis vaporizers work by slowly heating the dry flower to where the cannabinoids and terpenes are activated without combustion. Dry herb vaporizers use a conduction/convection oven method. This means the chamber the dry herb is in circulates hot air all around the dry flower, allowing it to evenly heat, releasing the valuable compounds for inhalation without combustion.


What are the top reasons to use a cannabis vaporizer?



Discreet and Convenient; Since no combustion occurs, the vapour that is produced causes very little odor. The vapour dissipates fast, so there is no lingering smell, eliminating the worry for overpowering odor concerns.


Quick Onset of Effects; Using a dry herb vaporizer is an excellent solution for cannabis consumers looking for fast relief without the inhalation of smoke. The onset from vaping cannabis is rapid and can last from 2-3 hours, depending on the person and their tolerance when it comes to cannabis


Kind to your lungs; Since there is no combustion occurring, you’re only inhaling the vapor produced from the cannabis. This means you’re avoiding the harmful carcinogens, respiratory irritants and toxins that smoke has. A 2010 study found that former cannabis users who switched to vaping felt an improvement in their breathing function within a month.


Better Taste; Due to the cannabis being slowly heated instead of being scorched by a lighter, we can better taste the terpenes in the dried flower. Terpenes not only smell incredible, but they also produce flavorful vapor that elevates your cannabis experience. You’ll be able to adjust the temperature to activate the terpenes. These terpenes are activated at these temperatures;


​Myrcene

334℉

Limonene

349℉

​A-Pinene

311℉

Linalool

388℉

B-Caryophyllene

264℉



Less Waste & More efficient - When we use a water pipe or joint we are burning the plant material as opposed to gently heating it to release the compounds found in cannabis. Using a dry herb vaporizer is 30% more effective than using a bong. Another benefit is the leftover plant material from your vaporizer can be used again! This is called AVB (already vaped cannabis). The plant material is already decarboxylated (activated)and is ready for use in topicals, infused oils and more


What are the setbacks to using a dry herb vaporizer?


Many users say there are very few setbacks to using a Vaporizer. Many of the issues stem from learning how to use the device, the maintenance of your device and the initial cost of the device. Dry herb vaporizers need routine cleaning between uses to assure you have a great session with each use. All dry herb vaporizers will build up a sticky resin from the heating of the cannabis. Cleaning them regularly will help reduce the resin build-up and keep your vaporizer in tiptop condition.


Conclusion


Luckily for us during this day and age we are able to access many methods of cannabis consumption. If you’re wanting the fast onset of relief without the harmful carcinogens, using a dry herb vaporizer will be for you.
