About Dry Herb Vaporizers

Pen vapes

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.

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.

Convection

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.

Conduction

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.
