Dry Herb Vaporizers

The Vaporizer industry is massive, and it is continuing to grow exponentially as the different provinces in Canada continue to expand their dedicated dry-herb production. As this happens, we're seeing new and innovative types vaporizers being introduced to the market, which we're delighted to be able to offer our customers right here at NamasteVapes!

Dry Herb and vaporisers that can draw their best flavor out are a corner stone for any herbal habit. There's so many benefits to vaping dry herb that many institutions and governments are throwing themselves into support of the movement! See below for a deeper look into the efficiency levels dry herb vaporizers offer, and what can be done to increase this efficiency. Also find below an explanation of the big dry herb vaporizer conundrum: Convection vs Conduction.

About Dry Herb Vaporizers

Convection vs Conduction

Let's Talk Efficiency

The efficiency of a vaporizer can be gauged by how well it extracts the medicinal ingredients from your material without reaching combustion temperature. But when it comes to dry herb vaporizers, vapers can often struggle to know when their material has been fully extracted. The level of difference between a low-efficiency vaporizer and high-efficiency vaporizer cannot be understated. High-efficiency is the only option when it comes to getting the most flavor and effect from your dry herbs.

While it varies between vapes, in general, what you are looking to find when you empty out the chamber of your vape is an even coloring throughout the materials. This is as a result of the vapor being extracted from the herb causing it to dry up. A browned, cooked look on your herbs is a great indicator that they were vaporized correctly.


Convection vaporizers are naturally more efficient in terms of material use in comparison to conduction vaporizers. This is mainly due to your materials not being constantly and directly heated by a convection-based heating system, but rather by heating the air in the chamber itself.

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 downside of this heating method is that the speed of your draw may affect vapor production, but what you're getting in return is a total and complete cook on all of your herbs. Opening up the chamber of a full convection oven after a session, you'll see the level of well-vaped brown that your herbs have turned. A great indicator that all of the beneficial vapor has been drawn out.

Conduction-based vaporizers create vapor by heating your materials in the chamber, where the materials are in direct contact with a heating element without reaching combustion temperatures. These units tend to produce thicker and more robust vapor compared to convection units, where the vapor tends to be lighter.

One downside of conduction vaporizers is that the chamber must be fully packed for it to work optimally. Therefore conduction vapes with larger chambers use more material over time but produce longer sessions nonetheless. Conduction vaporizers excel at being portable vapes. In fact almost all of the best compact, portable vapes are conduction based. Conduction vapes take up less space and require less power, making them perfect for on-the-go vaping.
