How we evaluated portable dry herb vaporizers?

The dab, the bong, that dingy old water pipe smelling up the closet—those are the days of old.

Today the portable vape market is full of options that can be difficult to understand. Convection versus conduction, glass mouthpiece versus stainless steel, which is best?

To make this list we looked at price. We were willing to pay for quality and bluetooth connectivity, but a pocketable product should be affordable—no matter how precise they promise the preset temperature control is.

After price, we read a lot of customer takes on battery life and the accessories, including the charger that came with each product.

The difference between convection heating and conduction heating is interesting in sixth grade science—but more relevant today in the context of how quickly we can heat up material. And if we want it hot fast (conduction) or to not burn up (convection).

Brands are important. We started with brands with a track record. But when it comes down to it we're trying to vaporize marijuana or hemp flower, so portability, air flow, and ease of use were more important.


At 40% bioavailability (more or less), vaporizing flower an effective way to get a daily dose of your favorite flower. But smoking shouldn't be taken lightly. Make sure the product you're inhaling is worth the potential damage to your lungs. Like anything we put into our bodies, particularly something that can directly affect organs as important as our lungs, users should weigh the benefits and risks before buying a portable vaporizer.

Once you have decided vaping is right for you, think about ease of use, how easy a product is to clean, and how quickly it heats material. Maybe temperature control is important to you. Maybe you wand something super portable and discrete. either way, we hope this guide to the best dry herb vaporizers for sale online was helpful.

The coronavirus has isolated many of us in our homes this year. We've been forced to slow down a little, maybe looking out our windows, becoming more in tune with the rhythms of our yards. Perhaps we've begun to notice more, like the birds hopping around in the bushes out back, wondering (maybe for the first time) what they are.
