Top 10 Dry Herb Vaporizers

Cannabis has seen a huge rise in popularity in recent years, not only for recreational use, but for medicinal use also. We have all heard about the various medicinal uses for cannabis. However, when smoking your cannabis with tobacco in a joint, you are still getting the harmful toxins which could be detrimental to your health. However, there is a solution in the form of the dry herb vape. It is only in recent years that vaping weed has become popular, despite the technology being around for quite a few years now.

Fortunately, there are hundreds of fantastic dry herb vapes on the market right now that will allow you to continue enjoying getting high without the worry of the health problems that come with smoking. Typically, you will have a bowl to put the weed in, a heating chamber that will either be powered by convection or conduction (or sometimes a hybrid of both), and a filter.

By using a dry herb vape you are able to precisely control the temperature, allowing you to get the best vapour hit every time. You can enjoy the effects of the weed without having to inhale any of the toxins that would be inhaled with a standard joint.

If you are completely new to dry herb vaping, then you are probably finding yourself a little bewildered by all of the different technical terms and jargon. Choosing the right vape can be very difficult if you don’t have a clue what these terms mean. This is why we have compiled a list of our top 6 weed vaporizers with all of the information that you need to help you make a sensible choice.

With this in mind, let’s get into our top 6 weed vapes!

1.     Arizer Solo 2 – Our Top Pick

After the huge success and popularity of the original Arizer Solo vape, the Arizer Solo 2 certainly had a lot to live up to. The Solo 2 is very similar in appearance to the original model, but this time around it features an LED screen which allows you to be far more precise, when it comes to controlling the temperature.

If you have used an Arizer vape before, then you will know that they definitely live up to their reputation for putting a lot of thought into the design. This is no different with the Arizer Solo 2. It has been incredibly well-built. One of the biggest upgrades with the Solo 2 is the LED screen. The controls are very user-friendly and easy to figure out, making this vape perfect for beginners.

As for the mouthpiece, Arizer have decided to stick with the original that was featured on the first Solo. If you have used the original Solo then you will know for yourself that there was no room for improvement here, the mouthpiece was perfect, so we’re happy that they decided to keep that.

One of the issues that many people noted with the original Solo was that it was sometimes hard to get a good hit from the vape. Thankfully, Arizer have addressed this issue and have improved air flow with the Solo 2, leading to a much smoother vaping experience.

One thing that we have noticed with some of the vapes that we have tested is that the flavour can be compromised and sometimes quite harsh at higher temperatures. Fortunately, this doesn’t seem to be an issue with the Arizer Solo 2, the flavour is incredibly and no harshness at all no matter what temperature.

Our favourite thing about the Solo 2 is the precise temperature control, which is a massive improvement on the previous model which only offered 7 pre-set temperatures. The fact that you can be so precise with the temperature means a much smoother vaping experience.

This vape is quite hefty, in terms of weight and dimensions, but this is great as it means that it is stable enough to be placed on the side without toppling over. The user controls are very responsive and easy to get your head around.

For us, this has got to be our top pick. There have been some huge improvements from the original model and we have absolutely no complaints about our vaping experience with the Arizer Solo 2. If you are a newbie to dry herb vaping and want to get into it, this is a great model to start you off.

Features:

  • Lithium Ion Battery
  • Hybrid Heating Technology
  • Herb and Concentrate
  • 20g Bowl Capacity
  • 3 Hour Battery Capacity
  • 210g

 

 

 

2.      Mighty Vaporizer – Ideal Session Vape

Storz& Bickel are big names in the vaping world and if you have ever had the pleasure of using one of their Volcano series, then you will know why they are held in such high regard. Since the release of the Mighty Vaporizer, it has been one of the most popular on the market and firmly held its position for a long time.

It features fantastic vapour production, very little resistance in terms of drawing from the unit and great temperature controls that really allow you to customise your vaping experience. For a perfect session vape, the Mighty has it all, without a doubt. The temperature is adjusted by using the controls on the front of the unit which will bring up an adjustable menu on the LCD screen. The screen itself is bright and clear, making it perfect for a great session.

One thing that we do like about the Mighty vaporizer is the battery life that it offers. It may not be as long lasting as some of the others on the market, but with 90 minutes capacity, it is ideal for a session with your mates. By far the best thing about the Mighty is the fact that it produces such a large amount of vapour. Although this is a portable vape, it is easily competing with some of the leading desktop models, which is something that you would definitely not expect.

One thing that may worry some users is the short mouthpiece that is built into the Mighty. Many people have found themselves worrying about the high temperatures being uncomfortable to draw from. With the mighty, this is not an issue at all. Even though the mouthpiece is short, it has great cooling capacity, making it comfortable to use even at higher temperatures. For a session vape, the Mighty is absolutely perfect.

Features:

  • Lithium Ion Battery
  • Hybrid Heating Technology
  • Herb and Concentrate
  • 25g Bowl Capacity
  • 90 Minute Battery Capacity
  • 230g

 

 

 

3.      Pax 3 Vaporizer

If you have tried the previous model, the Pax 2, then it is likely that you will be expecting great things from the Pax 3 and it is safe to say that you won’t be disappointed. For us, the biggest improvement on the previous model is the fact that the Pax 3 heats up in half the time of the Pax 2. Whilst this wasn’t a major issue for users, it is certainly a welcome upgrade.

With the half oven attachment, you are able to half the bowl capacity, making this vape perfect for personal use rather than a session vape. The flavour produced by the Pax 3 is definitely one of the best features. It produces a smooth, incredibly flavoured draw every time.

One thing that is worth noting with the Pax 3 is that the flavour that it produces will depend on the strain of weed used. There are some strains that are better for vaping than others, so it is a bit of a trial and error process, but once you find the right strain for the vape you’re set.

The battery capacity is very impressive for such a small vape, making it perfect for those who simply want a hit or two every few hours. If you are looking for a personal portable vape that will give you a smooth draw every time, then the Pax 3 is the one for you.

Features:

  • Lithium Ion Battery
  • Conduction Heating Technology
  • Herb and Concentrate
  • 35g Bowl Capacity
  • 8-10 Session Battery Capactiy
  • 93g

 

 

 

4.      DaVinci IQ Vaporizer

For us, one of the best things about the DaVinci IQ is the fact that it comes with a replaceable, rechargeable 18650 battery. Each fully charged battery will last for around 70 minutes, meaning that you can take your vape on the go and get several good draws without having to worry too much about the battery running out.

What makes this vape great is that it is perfect for the beginner. It vibrates when it has reached the ideal temperature for vaping, so there is no guess work involved like there seems to be with a lot of other vapes on the market at the moment.

Another thing that we like about the DaVinci IQ is that it has a very high crack resistance. If you are new to dry herb vaping then you will probably not be aware that getting the temperature just right can be difficult, which often leads to cracked pieces of the vape. Fortunately, this is not an issue with this one as it has a high crack resistance, will let you know when it is at the right temperature and also shuts itself off automatically so there is no risk of it overheating.

If you are new to dry herb vaping and you want to give it a go, then the DaVinci IQ is a great place to start. The controls are user friendly, the LED screen is incredibly easy to understand and it offers great flavour.

Features:

  • Lithium Ion Battery
  • Conduction Heating Technology
  • Dry Herb Only
  • 30g Bowl Capacity
  • 90 Minute Battery Capacity
  • 140g

 

 

 

5.      Arizer Air 2

Number 5 on our list goes to the Arizer Air 2. As we have already established, Arizer are very popular in the vape world. They are known for producing incredibly well-designed units with great features, so to say that the release of the Arizer Air 2 was highly anticipated is an understatement. Vape fans all over the world were eagerly awaiting the release of this one.

If you have used any of the previous Arizer vapes, then you will know already that they are built to last. They are incredibly durable. Although saying this, the mouthpieces are a little fragile, but they are replaceable so that’s not too much of an issue. There is nothing different with the Arizer Air 2, this has also been designed to last a long time, much to the pleasure of Arizer fans all over the world.

There have been numerous upgrades with the Arizer Air 2. It is still very similar to the original version, but designers have listened to what customers have had to say and made some significant improvements. One of the biggest improvements with this model is the precise temperature control, something that wasn’t offered with the previous model.

Another thing that has been improved is the heating time. Although the heating time on the previous model wasn’t too bad, it could have been better and thankfully designers have made significant improvements on the heating time of the Arizer Air 2.

One final thing worth noting with the Arizer Air 2 is that it is far more discreet than many of the other portable vapes on the market at the moment. It is small in both size and weight, making it perfect for those who want to be able to vape whilst they are out and about without drawing too much attention to themselves.

Features:

  • 18650 Interchangeable Battery
  • Convection Heating Technology
  • Dry Herb Only
  • 25g Bowl Capacity
  • 90 Minute Battery Capacity
  • 300g

 

 

 

6.      XMAX Starry Vaporizer

Finally, if you are new to dry herb vaping and you want to try a budget vape to start with to see how you get on, then the XMAX Starry vape is the one for you. One of the things that we like about this vape is that it is very user friendly for beginners. It is easy to use and easy to control, so if you haven’t tried dry herb vaping before then you won’t be too overwhelmed with this one.

Although this is a budget vape, it certainly isn’t a let-down in terms of features. It performs well and produces a good draw every time. The shape and style of the XMAX Starry is great, it looks sleek and stylish and has been designed to be durable.

Obviously, it’s important not to expect the same quality in terms of flavour and draw from a budget vape like this, in comparison to some of the high end models like those mentioned above, but the performance from this one for such an affordable model is actually really impressive.

If you want to try dry herb vaping for the first time and see if it is something that you would like to get into rather than smoking regular joints, then this is a great starter vape.

Features:

  • 2600 mAh battery
  • Conduction Heating Technology
  • 35g Bowl Capacity
  • Herb and Concentrate
  • 1 Hour Battery Capacity
  • 120g

 

 

 

So, there you have it, our top 6 weed vape reviews. All of these vapes are fantastic and we don’t have any complaints about any of them, so take your pick, you won’t be disappointed!

Weed Vaporizers – Why It Is Better Than Smoking

Whether you are smoking for medicinal use or for recreational use, smoking is damaging to our bodies. Especially for medicinal use, it is obvious to say, but still needs repeating that smoking cannabis (marijuana/weed) is hazardous to our health.

Smoking weed with tobacco makes the act many times worse, as you are not only burning the herb, but you are also inhaling nicotine, tar and other substances used to make the tobacco.

Tobacco is often smoked alongside weed, which is rolled using rolling papers; Rizla or the like. The tobacco is mixed in small amounts with the weed to keep the joint burning (so you dont have to keep lighting it).

Even without tobacco, the act of smoking cannabis is harmful to your health because it is the combustion of the cannabis that creates the smoke you inhale. Once inhaled, the general consensus is that you hold the smoke in for as long as you can to get the best high you can. Holding in the smoke is damaging your lungs further and is one of the prime causes of lung cancer as well as other respiratory problems.

 

Why You Are Wasting Weed By Smoking It

There is a perfect temperature the cannabis should be. Smoking it will burn the herb and you will be releasing 111 different components which are then exposed to your body (You can add more numbers to this when you are smoking with tobacco!). The toxic by-products of the burning of weed or causing combustion is mostly what you inhale and not the cannabinoids which is the active ingredient of the plant.

It is the cannabinoids in the herb that take effect in our body which has a medical effect and for recreational users, gives the high.

When smoking (burning) the herb, you are are only inhaling 12% of the goodness, the remaining 88% (increase this number when smoking with tobacco) is the different chemical components mentioned above.

Reading the above clearly shows that smoking is not only a big waste of money but is also damaging your health in a harsh way so why put your body through this?

Vaporize And Enjoy!

By vaporizing weed, you are heating it to a precise temperature and in turn, dehydrating the herb enabling it to release its goodness.

Foods which are made using the plant also carries the same benefits in terms of health, but the downside to edibles is that it takes time for it to take effect where smoking and vaping gives us instant gratification. This is the reason vaporizers are the best way to go!

As opposed to burning the plant where you have no control of the temperature, when vaporizing; you have control over the heat produced. There are some dry herb vaporizers which you cannot control the temperature of, but some of the better quality products give you the flexibility in heating temperatures.

Heating the weed to a specific temperature will release the active ingredients of the plant without igniting it. This way you don’t expose your body to harmful chemicals.

The ideal temperature of vaping weed depends on the device you are using but is generally between 338°F / 170°C and 383°F / 193°C.

When vaping weed at the optimal temperatures, you are getting the best from the plant without causing combustion. Vaping weed gives you 95% of the good stuff without any of the carcinogen that you get from burning.

Be careful even when vaping not to increase the temperature too much as if it does go beyond around 392°F / 200°C, then you will combust the plant and start to release some of the harmful components we are looking to avoid.

Vaping cannabis gives you an amazing 95% cannabinoids, the remaining 5% is small amounts of PAH and caryophyllene which is an essential oil found in many plants.

95% of the cannabis is absorbed in the first few seconds of inhalation, there is no need to hold the smoke in so taking shallow puffs will has around the same amount of effect.

 

To summarise here are the health benefits of vaping weed compared to smoking it;

  • Eliminating the by-products of the smoke such as carcinogen – which we get from any type of fire
  • Carcinogen is not only produced by the burning weed but also rolling paper. As many, many people like to smoke their weed in joints, they get the nasties from burning the weed, tobacco (where used) and also the rolling paper
  • Vaping actually feels nicer on your lungs than smoking – you enjoy the experience more than you would when smoking
  • No need for an ashtray when smoking, so no need to keep ashing then cleaning up – you will, however need somewhere to dispose of the used buds – but it is still much cleaner
  • Smoking through a pipe can also cause blockages in the device which you will need to frequently clean and maintain – no need with a vaporizer!
  • Vaping will not stain your teeth as much as smoking will – it is the 111 chemical compounds when smoking that stains and yellow’s teeth
  • The lingering smoke will no longer be an issue. When vaping, you will still get some smoke (it wouldn’t be very fun without it!), however, the smoke that you get from vaping is reduced a fair amount and will not make the room smell so bad
  • Getting the most out of your money – as stated above, when you are smoking you are effectively wasting your money because most of the goodness is burnt away leaving you with around 12% of the effect. When vaping you are extracting 95% of the THC – the active ingredient in the plant
  • Medicinal users need less cannabis for it to take effect when compared to eating or drinking it

 

Different Temperatures To Vape Weed & Its Effects

When you have a good quality vaporizer, you will have a range of different temperatures to play with. Here is a brief list on the temperatures and their effects;

  • 301°F / 150°C – slowly starting to heat up the weed – this is the best temperature to taste and enjoy the flavour of the plant. It is warm enough to start releasing some of its rich tones but not hot enough to extract the THC. This temperature will give you very little (if any) high, euphoric feeling
  • 356°F / 180°C – For Sativa and 374°F / 190°CFor Indica – for medicinal users, this is a great temperature to benefit from pain relief without the euphoric buzz from the THC which can effect their day to day functioning.
  • 375°F / 190°C – Is a good temperature for casual use during the daytime. This will allow you to function well and depending on the strain you are vaping, will increase focus and concentration levels
  • 391°F / 200°C – A good night time, relaxing temperature. You are on the verge of burning the weed but just keeping safe from it. This will give you the maximum release of all the goodness in the weed including the cannabinoids which are heavy in sedative properties. A good idea for a nightcap!

 

What Is DryHerbVaping.UK All About?

There are many medicinal benefits to cannabis, this is a known fact. Its not a bunch of potheads who are fighting for the legalisation of the plant, far from it.Many medical research studies have proven the benefits that come with weed in treating a number of diseases which, traditional western medicine simply cannot remedy.The two main active ingredients in weed are;

CBD – Cannabidiol. This is a property that doesn’t give you the euphoric or high feeling yet still has an impact on the brain.
THC – Tetrahydrocannabinol. This is the wider known property and is responsible for the high or buzz from the plant. THC has some beneficial properties, the main one worth noting is that it relieves pain.

Here are some of the diseases that have treated or eased the suffering with use of marijuana;

Glaucoma

Increases pressure in the eye. This increased pressure can cause loss of vision as a result of damaged optic nerves.
Use of cannabis decreases this pressure and delays the symptoms of glaucoma. This, in turn, prevents blindness. It actually helps people with their vision!

Studies by The National Eye Institute in the 1970’s has proven this to be true. Follow this link to find out more on this study. http://www.nei.nih.gov/news/statements/marij.asp

Cancer

The big C word has effected nearly all of us, either directly or touched someone close. While many of the western medicines seem to work well, studies have shown that CBD stops cancer cells from spreading. Researchers have shown that in a study where a patient had breast cancer, after treatment using CBD, the cancer spreading cells were less aggressive.

Other studies in USA, Spain and Israel have taken place to further prove this and have discovered that the active ingredients on weed could even kill cancer cells!

Arthritis

Researchers from several hospitals have conducted studies on patients who suffer from arthritis and have found those who were treated with Sativex (a cannabis based medicine for pain relief) were getting a better nights sleep which in turn reduced discomfort. Beingable to sleep longer naturally helped their bodies heal naturally.
Crohn’s Disease
Crohn’s disease is a bowel disorder which symptoms include vomiting, diarrhea and loss of appetite and weight.
Researchers in Israel have shown in a study that patients who suffer from Crohn’s disease have drastically eased the symptoms and in some cases caused complete remission of Crohns.
Parkinson’s Disease
Research in Israel has shown that the use of marijuana has significantly reduced the pain and tremors that come with Parkinson’s disease.
The treatment also helped the patients achieve a better nights sleep and more importantly, it helped improve motor skills.
Chemotherapy Pain Relief
Chemotherapy is a hard and painful process for anyone to endure. As a result of the pain, nausea, vomiting and loss of appetite; patients are open to further health risks.
Cannabis helps by relieving the pain and nausea and promoting appetite.Besides the diseases listed above, there are many, many other issues that cannabis and the properties within helps to relieve or, in some cases, completely cure.
There is a lot of power and goodness in this plant which, if used wisely, can have many benefits to our health.So back to the original question, what is DryHerbVaping.UK all about?
I have started this site as I have been a keen vaping enthusiast myself for sometime.
There are, indeed, many dry herb vaporizers on the market today. It can be confusing on which one is best for you. While you don’t always want to pay an arm and a leg for one, it is also advised that you don’t go for the cheapest option because, well, they are just bad quality and besides not being able to function as well as you would like them to, they can also be dangerous.
This site will review vaporizers, for better or for worse, we aim to give you the most honest review on the products we believe to be the most popular in the market.If you have any questions or would like to request a review of a certain product, please feel free to contact us here.
