What a wonderful world we’re living in when we have so many ways to get high it’s hard to keep track of them all. From dab rigs and vape pens to THC-infused cold brew coffee, we’ve come a long way since legalization began to sweep the nation.


Old school stoners have a particular loyalty to smoking flower. It makes sense, it’s the OG. The most natural way to consume cannabis is by drying it, grinding it up, and smoking it. But, dry herb vape technology lets you enjoy fresh flower with the convenience of an electronic device. So, let’s dive into the mechanics of a dry herb vaporizer.

What Is a Dry Herb Vaporizer?

A dry herb vaporizer is a small handheld device used to smoke weed. Except, the device contains heating elements that vaporize the herb rather than smoking via combustion. As a result, the experience is a smoother inhale and a flavor that doesn’t have any lingering taste of “smoke” because nothing is actually burning.


Because vaporization is also more efficient than burning, the weed lasts longer in a vape than it would in a bowl or joint. There are two types of dry herb vaporizer - a portable pen or a desktop device, much like a bong.

How Does it Work?

A dry herb vaporizer that uses convection healing uses a liquid or gas (usually butane) to move heat around the chamber. This hot air circulates across the dry herb when you take a pull from the mouthpiece. As a result, the herb does not burn or combust but instead vaporizes due to the high temperature.

How to Use a Dry Herb Vape

A dry herb vape is relatively simple to use, and there are plenty of brands, like Pax and Puffco, that make high-quality devices. In this example, we’ll walk through the setup for using a Pax 3 dry herb vaporizer.


  1. Charge the device!
  2. Grind your herb. It should be finely ground, without any stems, stalks, or seeds.
  3. Pack the chamber. Use a vape scoop loading tool and pax tamp to make sure that you pack the oven nice and tight.
  4. Choose your heat setting and press down on the button for a few seconds before you inhale.
  5. Inhale slowly, taking light, short puffs.
  6. Exhale and enjoy!


Cleanup is simple with a dry herb vaporizer. Open the chamber and empty the oven after all of the herb has vaporized to a lighter, ash-like consistency. Don’t forget to turn off the device to save battery.

Benefits of a Dry Herb Vape

A dry herb vape is an excellent way to enjoy your weed.


  1. Clean taste
  2. Reduced aroma
  3. Discreet
  4. Portable
  5. Efficient


Not only that, but a dry herb vape is a more environmentally friendly alternative to vape cartridges that you throw in the trash once they’re finished. You can enjoy a dry herb vape pen for years if you take care of it, charge the battery, and clean the chamber.


If you love smoking fresh flower and haven’t yet invested in a dry herb vape, now is the time.
