What Are Dry Herb Vaporizers?

To put it plainly, a dry herb vaporizer heats raw materials to produce a vapor that will be inhaled. As a difference from burning it, heating your material will allow you to keep all its therapeutic properties. 

In comparison to concentrated vaporizers that use liquids, dabs or wax, dry vaporizers utilise a more natural form of material. Because of that, they are often valued as having excellent taste. 

The Most Important Parts of a Dry Herb Vaporizer

Using a dry herb vaporizer for some time made me realize that all parts are important. Not to worry, dry herb vaporizers don’t have a ton of screws, bolts, electronics and stuff. Most of them are plain and simple. You have a mouthpiece, chamber and battery. 

  • battery determines how long and how often you will be able to use your device before charging it and having a good battery will mostly benefit you on the go.
  • the chamber is important because it dictates how much material you can heat, and how crude or soft material needs to be ground for the perfect experience.
  • the mouthpiece. If I really need to point the finger then this one would be the most important part. A mouthpiece needs your attention the most, you will clean it regularly to forestall any buildup and to assure a fresh and secure session for yourself each time.

7 Easy Steps to Mastering Your Dry Herb Vaporizer

Starting something new can be a daunting experience, but as you repeat the process, eventually you get proficient at it. The same goes with using a dry herb vaporizer. Not to worry, you’re in luck. Following these 7 steps, you will let you go from zero to hero in no time.

Grind Your Herb

Grinding your material is the key element to get the best out of your session. Definitely avoid doing it by hand, a simple grinder will do. However, don’t go overboard with it. Grinding your herb to dust could cause trouble for your device.  

How to do it with TruVa: preparing your herb for our TruVa is like a walk in a park. Since it uses true convection technology, medium grind will do the perfect job. Medium coarse herb will nicely cover the chamber allowing TruVa to spread the perfect amount of heat, releasing the cannabinoids in the plant without burning it. Also, ordering your TruVa will get you a free grinder.

Prime Before Using

Before you fill the chamber with your herb, take a cotton tip and give your device a nice rub with some alcohol-based solution (isopropyl alcohol). You will want to have your device spotless. After that, turn it on and run it at a high temperature for a few moments. 

How to do it with TruVa: thanks to the 30-second heat-up time, priming TruVa will pass quickly and you will be able to vape your herb in no time.  

Fill Up Your Chamber

Depending on the type of the vaporizer, filling your camber can range. If you are using a conduction vaporizer, stuffing your chamber to its maximum capacity is possible because it does not require airflow to heat your herb. On the other side, when using a convection vaporizer we recommend filling your chamber halfway through. It is important to have enough room inside the chamber for air to flow freely. Having a fully loaded chamber can sometimes be a double-edged sword. Yes, you have more material to go through without a refill, but you will have more material to clean. 

How to do it with TruVa: as mentioned earlier, TruVa is a convection style vaporizer that allows you to dictate how much material you want to spend at any given moment. Airflow will add more flavor to your herb, broadening your experience and enjoyment.

Choose the Right Temperature

Before tampering with your device’s temperature you need to know why you are doing this. Every temperature will give you different effects mainly because boiling points can differ. The temperature will also have a direct impact on your highs, so this is something that definitely needs to be taken into consideration. If you are using mainly THC flower, then the perfect range would be 380-400 degrees. However, CBD flowers will heat up at a little lower temperature, a bit closer to 360 degrees to be fairly precise.

How to do it with TruVa: it’s all fun and games talking about temperature, but to set it up can be troublesome. Especially if your device has too many buttons and un-adjustable pre-sets. With TruVa you won’t have these types of problems, to change your pre-set temperature simply use the 2 smaller green buttons on the side of your device to raise or lower your temperature.

Stir Your Material 

It is recommended to open your chamber every couple of puffs to stir your herb a bit. This will keep your pulls fresh like the first one and heat will be redistributed evenly around the herb.

How to do it with TruVa: being a convection vaporizer, TruVa allows you to easily stir up your herb within the chamber with no fear of falling outside. As it comes with a mini-pick, in a matter of seconds, you will set everything up and continue your session.

Keep Your Dry Herb Vape Pen Clean

Cleaning can sometimes be tedious, but if you brush your vaporizer after every use, a thorough cleaning will be no trouble at all. Doing this every few sessions will greatly improve your device’s performance and extend its lifespan. 

How to do it with TruVA: with an easy-to-clean stainless steel chamber and lifetime warranty on defective parts, you will be using TruVa for quite some time. Also, with the device, you will receive two brushes for better maintenance.

Keep the Device On if Taking a Quick Break

Turning your dry herb vaporizer on and off between puffs can negatively impact your battery life. If you are taking a break from your session but will return shortly keep your device on. 

How to do it with TruVa: vaping with TruVa you won’t have to worry about battery life. Working with a 2000mAh battery you will have at least 5-hours of uninterrupted vaping. In case you are in a pinch, a retractable micro USB charger that’s included will come in handy.

    Hi,
    I have never used to vap pen and I am a light smoker (1 cig a day, sometimes none). I have been wanting to try CBD for occasional anxiety and low energy level. I also like the idea of using a vap pen, less harmful than a regular cigarette. (And vap was quite a character in The Mare Of EastTown). I am in India and a cousin in Tampa is flying from the US to India on 8th August. If I place an order 2nd, can it reach him before that? Is it legal to carry CBD oil and a vap pen on flights between India and America? Can regular tobacco oil be used without mixing in place of CBD oil in vap pens? Is there a number I can call if I have more questions?

    • IvanS says:

      Hey Swati,

      from a quick Google search, CBD oil seems to be legal in India, provided it doesn’t contain more than 0.3% THC. That said, I wouldn’t advise your cousin traveling with it – we could fulfill the order by the time he flies out, but it’s difficult to guarantee that there will be no hiccups with the delivery.
