Dry Herb Vaporizers: What To Avoid When Buying One

Are you considering buying your first dry herb vaporizer but don’t really know what to expect or what to look for? Do you want to know what you should keep an eye out for and what you should avoid when buying a dry herb vaporizer?

Dry herb vaporizers are all the rage and are quickly becoming one of the most popular methods of cannabis consumption. There are many reasons why people choose dry herb vaporizers over other consumption methods, but in the end, it is all down to personal preference.

With that said, when it comes time for you to buy a dry herb vaporizer, there are a few things to keep in mind and avoid when looking around. Here is what to avoid when purchasing a dry herb vaporizer.


The first thing you should keep an eye out for when buying a dry herb vaporizer is the convenience it will offer you. Many people choose dry herb vaporizers as their consumption method because of the convenience it has to offer, and you should do this, too.

However, it is important to note there are different types of dry herb vaporizers, and you need to find a vaporizer that is suitable for you and one that will fit your lifestyle. Are you a home smoker, or do you enjoy smoking when you are out and about? This is a good way to gauge what kind of device you will need, whether it is a portable vaporizer or a desktop vape that doesn’t move around.

Low Battery Life

Battery life is very important to dry herb vaporizers or even just vaporizers in general. When choosing a dry herb vaporizer, choose one that has a much higher battery like that will last a lot longer. Not only is this longer battery life great when keeping your vape alive for longer, but as the battery life becomes low, you start to lose flavors. Similarly, having a longer battery life means better flavor for a longer time between charging periods.

Ignoring Quality

When purchasing a dry herb vaporizer, you should absolutely avoid skimping on the quality to save a few bucks. Yes, dry herb vaporizers can get quite pricey, but with that, you get excellent quality and a device that will last you for a very long time when maintained correctly and properly.

Skimping on quality means you will lose out on many great features that the dry herb vaporizer could offer you, such as better temperature control, battery life, flavor, and much more. It is better to pay more now and have a device that works better than to pay even more in the future on multiple devices that don’t work so well.

Poor Temperature Control

Last but not least, the final thing you should consider, or rather avoid when buying a dry herb vaporizer, is products with little to no temperature control. If you are buying your first dry herb vaporizer and just want a cheap device to try it out, this will likely not be the end of the world. However, most vape pens or cheaper devices do not have any kind of temperature control.

Hence, if you have decided that you really enjoy dry herb vaporizers and want to invest in a better one, you should make sure you are looking for one that offers a good amount of temperature control. Temperature control plays a major role in the type of experience that you will have. Typically, dry herb vaporizers will have temperature setting ranges. The lower temperatures will allow you to get more out of the flavor and experience all the terpenes available. Whereas, when used at higher temperatures, the weed vaporizes at a faster pace, which means that you will get higher faster or even has a stronger high.
