It was about 2006 when vaporizers to use with tobacco and marijuana came on the market.
There are several types of vaporizers and they are used with different things in different ways. Some vaporizers use waxes or concentrate, some use liquids, some are for use with dry herbs, and some can vape multiple forms of cannabis.
Cannabis users all over the world have discovered how nice it is to have a dry herb vaporizer. They are noted for their portability and ease of use and they have a pretty good record when you look at it from a reasonable perspective.
They come in various price ranges that anyone can afford. They are also noted for making your weed last longer and work more effectively.
Do Vaporizers Cause Illness?
During the time since the inception of all of these vaping varieties, there has been much controversy over their safety.
Many in the scientific and medical communities have raised questions about whether or not they can cause harm to the lungs.
The Center for Disease Control has studied well over a hundred cases of those that have been hospitalized with conditions that were thought to be associated with using e-liquid vaporizers, but they could not come to a clear conclusion in 2019.
What About Dry Herb Vaporizers?
When it comes to dry herb vaporizers, there has thus far been no cases involving hospitalizations associated with its use. One of the main reasons dry herb vaporizers have gained so much popularity in recent years.
They do not use any liquids, waxes, or oils and herb users are more comfortable with them. Dry herb vapes are also easier to use than other vaporizers that use the oils, e-liquids, and waxes.
Dry herb vaporizers only use the dried cannabis flower and they are usually battery-operated. There are electric versions available that are mostly used on tabletops. Dry herb vaporizers use conduction or convection heating methods to release the compounds of cannabis or other herbs.
There is no flame, only heat. This means that even though you get a steamy warm vapor from the herbs, there is no toxic smoke created at all. You get all of the good from your herbs, without all of the bad.
There is also no second-hand smoke to worry about, so others around you won’t be affected. Overall, it is thought that the dry herb vaporizers do not pose any health risks.
There is no question that they are much better for your health than traditional smoking of any kind.
Are There Health Benefits Using A Dry Herb Vaporizer?
The real benefits you get from your dry herb vapes come from the way it works with your cannabis and other herbs like lavender and peppermint. Accessing certain compounds that help with many medical issues is why so many use the dry herb vapes now.
Of course, many people still use cannabis just for recreational use, but even they benefit using the dry herb vaporizer because it eliminates the toxicity they got before when they smoked it in joints or pipes.
Many times when cannabis is burned, it is heated so much that some of the more subtle benefits of the weed are reduced, like terpenes.
The terpenes refer to the fragrance of the weed. When it is gently heated as opposed to being burned, the fragrance is much sweeter smelling and many herb users believe the aroma is soothing. Another benefit of the dry herb vapes is that the temperature of the heat it uses can be adjusted. Low heat will help to release the terpenes of cannabis better.
Medium to high heat helps to release more THC compounds and CBD compounds of cannabis. The CBD in the weed is one of the compounds that help people so much with pain.
The more THC compound that is released the higher you will get.
I’ve been dry herb vaping for years. I notice the vape collects a lot of resin in it and wonder sometimes if my lungs are too and how that is impacting them. But its by far and away the healthiest option and I find the high much cleaner and more refined than the “dirty feeling” I used to get from smoking weed only in a pipe where you are not benefiting at all from stems, leaf and toxicity.
Hi,Charlene. Make sure screen is in. Hope this helps
I’ve been using a dry herb vape for 7 years now. The flavour of the weed is just incredible. I am concerned about health risks. So far there hasn’t been a lot of impartial research about dry herb vapes. From what I can tell they’re much better than smoking weed & a lot better than the more socially acceptable drinking.
I have a dry herb pen and it looks like alot of smoke when I blow it out. Is that just the vapor? Takes a couple seconds to dissipate. And it leaves a marijuana smell but doesn’t linger.
