The top 5 benefits of using a dry herb vaporiser

Dry herb vaporisers have been gaining in popularity over the past few years as more people embrace their use as a healthier and more efficient alternative to smoking. We take a look at some of the benefits of using a vaporiser to consume dry herbs over combusting them.

Here’s our top 5 benefits for you to consider when thinking about making the switch.

  • Easier on the lungs
  • Better taste and aroma
  • More efficient use of herbs
  • Allows for more dosing control
  • Discreet and convenient


It’s easier on your lungs

One of the most significant benefits of using a dry herb vaporiser is that it’s going to be easier on your lungs.

A dry herb vaporiser heats the herbs to a temperature that releases the active compounds without burning the plant matter. That reduces the amount of harmful substances you inhale. Simply put, you’re not breathing in the smoke created by burning your herb of choice.

The act of inhaling smoke aside, the amount of heat being drawn into your lungs cannot be healthy. While we’re not doctors, from personal experience it’s easier to inhale vapour than a big old cloud of smoke. Not only that, but doctors prescribing medicinal cannabis recommend vaporising. It’s better for your respiratory health and provides a far more pleasant experience.



Better taste and aroma

If you would prefer to experience the unique flavours and aromas of the herbs you’ve chosen then vaporising is for you!

Smoke tastes like smoke and burning your herbs can definitely alter their taste and aroma. On the other hand, using a dry herb vaporiser heats your herbs to a lower temperature, allowing you to experience their natural flavours.

This makes the vaping experience way more enjoyable and enables you to appreciate the nuances of different strains. Get ready for a blast of floral, fruity, minty and earthy terpenes, just to name a few!

It’s the same for the smell of vapour. Smoke has a distinctive smell that spreads, lingers and clings to spaces and clothes. The vapour from a dry herb vape will smell like the herbs you’re using instead of that distinctive, easily recognisable smell that turns heads when you smoke. The vapour smell is nowhere near as pervasive. It usually goes away within 30 minutes in a closed room and almost straight away out in the open.


More efficient use of herbs (aka Saves you money)

This is a consumption method that will definitely save you money over time.

The difference between smoking and using a dry herb vaporiser is that when you smoke, you burn the entire herb, including parts that may not contain active compounds. This can result in wasted herbs and reduced potency. Vaporising, on the other hand, heats the herbs to a temperature that releases the active compounds without burning the plant matter. That means, you can use a lot less to achieve the same results.

While you need to make an initial investment in purchasing a dry herb vaporiser (which can be quite a bit if you’re going for a high-end model), the money you will save down the road will surpass that up-front cost, and then some.



Customisable experience allows for more dosing control

Dry herb vaporisers offer a customisable experience. In fact you can have two separate sessions that feel completely different, from the same bowl!

Different compounds in the herbs vaporise at different temperatures. For example vaping at a lower temperature creates  a lighter vapour. The effects can be energetic - perfect for daytime. Fire up the same bowl at a higher temperature and get ready to relax. You can also adjust the temperature to suit different strains, giving you the most out of your favourite herb.

Similar to adjusting for the range of effects you can achieve, dry herb vapes offer more control when it comes to dosing. Since your herb doesn’t get burned in one go, you can use less with similar results. When you combust your plant matter, the really high temperatures involved release the active ingredients in a single burst of smoke. This can be intense for someone looking for a more minimal effect. 

These higher temperatures also destroy some of the active ingredients. So those using cannabis for medical reasons might want to consider this when determining the best consumption method.  


Discreet and convenient. 

Using a dry herb vaporiser is also more discreet and convenient than traditional smoking methods. Vaporisers produce less smoke and odour than smoking, making it easier to use in public or around others. Also a lot a vaporisers are small and portable, meaning you can take them wherever you go. This can be especially useful for those who use herbs for medicinal purposes and need to take them throughout the day.

In fact, there’s nothing much easier than using a loaded dry herb vape. Just pull it from your pocket, click a button, give the heating element a moment to heat up and hit it from the mouthpiece. If you use lower temperatures, you can even quit mid-session and finish it off later. What’s left behind is biodegradable and can be thrown away anywhere.

A good way to think about a dry herb vaporiser is like your mobile phone. Simply, plug it in to give it a nice charge and you’re good to go. 

The other big plus is that vapour is harder to see and smell and usually isn’t detectable. 

If convenience is what you’re after, then a dry herb vape is the perfect choice. 



In conclusion, a dry herb vaporizer offers numerous benefits over traditional smoking methods. It can help to improve your respiratory health, enhance the taste and aroma of your herbs, and allow for more efficient use of herbs. Additionally, it offers a customizable experience, is more discreet and convenient, and can save you money in the long run. If you are looking for a healthier and more enjoyable way to use herbs, a dry herb vaporizer is definitely worth considering.
