This is how a dry herb vaporizer works

E-liquids are a large part of the substances that are consumed by vapers, but there is also another option, we will call them “dry herbs” in the following. In the recent past in particular, the consumption of these ingredients has skyrocketed – and so has sales of dry herb vaporizers. Of course, this leaves quite a few hobby vapers with many question marks. What is a dry herb vaporizer anyway? How does it all work? Do I have to pay attention to things? Since we have received more and more inquiries regarding these problems recently, we want to take a closer look at them today.

What the hell is a dry herb vaporizer?

Basically, these devices work in a similar way to those that work with e-liquid. The difference is, of course, in the ingredients, as we are of course looking at aromatic herbs and the like, which are dried and finely rubbed inside the vaporizer. There they are heated and the resulting vapor is inhaled. At this point we should also mention that this form of vaping is a lot more pleasant, environmentally friendly and sustainable than normal smoking.

Different types of dry herb vaporizers

Just like with normal e-cigarettes or box mods, we also look at different versions and devices that offer different possibilities of use and will appeal to each consumer differently.

Vape pens

Comparable to e-cigarettes, these devices are rather small, are based on the size and shape of normal cigarettes and are very easy to use overall. The only disadvantage is that you cannot make any large additional settings to personalize your vaping experience. In addition, the battery life is a bit more limited and the general performance is not that great.

Nevertheless, if you simply prefer it and just want to do a few smaller sessions in between, you can’t go wrong with vape pens.

Portable vaporizers

Here we are looking at slightly larger models that are nevertheless handy and absolutely transportable. They are also a bit more expensive and not quite as inconspicuous as pens, but they are clear and pleasant to use. The big advantage here is that the aroma and taste development is significantly better than with smaller devices.

Desktop vaporizers

Finally, let’s talk about the largest devices that most vapers will only have at home. We’re talking more about stations that are not really suitable for on the go, but the best vapor development and the fullest taste. For these devices, however, you will need accessories, and most of them have to be charged via a socket. But as I said, anyone who likes long sessions is doing everything right. 

Thus, a dry working Herb Vaporizer

Many questions that reach us suggest that the herbs are burned during the process or that something else is done with them. But of course no trace of that. It’s just about heating the ingredients so that they emit certain vapors that are later inhaled.

It is important to understand how these methods of heating work, as there are several different ways of doing this. On the one hand, we speak of convection heat when the herbs are in direct contact with the heated surface. As an example, think of cooking in a pan. Other vaporizers use convection heat, which heats air masses and then releases this heat into their surroundings. The herbs are also heated.

As soon as heated vapors can radiate out of the device, they are ultimately inhaled. The residues then have to be removed after the respective session before you can refill your vaporizer. 

Tips for Dry Herb Vaping

  • Most vaporizers today use convection heat and this is how they get the best results. You should also make sure to rebrain your herbs as small as possible to get the best results. Ultimately, this gives you more surface that can be heated faster and more extensively. Here the insider speaks of “grinding”.
  • The right temperature at which your devices run is also crucial. However, it is important that there is not THE right temperature, after all this depends on the respective vaporizer. However, there is an orientation, at around 170 ° Celsius you are basically doing everything right. This benchmark can be tinkered with individually.

By the way, we would like to emphasize that conventional cigarettes can reach temperatures of over 1000 degrees Celsius. The many poisons that are created are therefore not contained in the vapors from vaporizers, as these are far from being contained in the steam at 170 ° Celsius. But be careful: the effect of steaming can be considerably higher than with rolled herb stalks.

World’s leading health experts publicly defend e-cigarettes

On Friday, a few of the world’s leading health professionals gathered to discuss the growth of the electronic cigarette industry. It is typical in such conversations that a lot has been said about the details of a possible regulation and e-cigarettes have been grossly criticized, but this time it turned out a little different. In a non-anonymous vote, health experts unequivocally agreed that electronic cigarettes could save millions of lives, taking the view that regulation would do more harm than good.

Respected researcher Konstantinos Farsalinos said his work demonstrated the tremendous power of vaping by which smokers could finally get rid of tobacco products. After 19,500 smokers had already tried electronic cigarettes, he was astonished to learn that 81% of smokers got rid of their addiction by switching to e-cigarettes. They found it easy even during the first few months when they only used electronic cigarettes. This cannot be recorded with any of the other methods of smoking cessation.

Farsalinos wasn’t the only one who saw how effective electronic cigarettes are for you. Professor Jean-Francois Etter from Geneva University said that vaping is no longer just a trend, but an effective way to rid smokers of their addiction. He believes that regulation could even be harmful in the long run. “E-cigarettes and nicotine, as well as vaporizers, shouldn’t be overly regulated,” he announced. Regulations could “even reduce the number of smokers who dare to take the step to the new product”. Etter also fears that regulations absolutely do nothing to weaken the tobacco companies and could even lead to a large number of e-cigarette companies being driven to bankruptcy.

Family doctor Alan Blum even recommended that his patients should try e-cigarettes if they were having trouble quitting smoking. He believes that vaping is a far better option for his patients and that he would rather consume an e-cigarette than consume any pharmaceutical product that has both side effects and does not work well anyway.

There is a lot at stake in the electronic cigarette debate. Farsalinos estimates that millions of smokers would die if they were denied access to the life-saving technology of electronic cigarettes. If only three percent of smokers switched to electronic cigarettes, we could save about two million lives over the next 20 years.

While critics often argue that electronic cigarettes are still too new and therefore incapable of fully understanding the effects and potential consequences, experts disagree. Etter said that we already know enough about e-cigarettes to be able to say with certainty that it is a proven and, above all, working method of quitting smoking. Alternatives to smoking don’t always have to be 100% safe, because in the end they just have to be safer than cigarettes. “One then prefers to choose the lesser of the two evils”.

Health experts all agree that vaping is a smart choice for smokers. So why is the government still trying to introduce regulations that could endanger the entire industry?

Vape use seems to be reducing smoking rates

News on November 25th, according to a survey data reported by the media, it is contrary to the prevailing saying that “Vape may cause the new generation to smoke again.” Cigarette consumption among teenagers, young people and the general population actually continues to decline. In addition, according to similar statements from other studies, the 2018 National Drug Use and Health Survey Report (NSDUH) pointed out that in fact Vape may cause a decline in smoking.

The SAMHSA report states that “less than one person in 2018 who was 12 years old or older was a smoker in the past month”. “Across all age groups, cigarette use generally declined between 2002 and 2018. Some of these declines may reflect the use of electronic vaporization devices (‘vaping’), such as e-cigarettes, as an alternative to nicotine.”

NYTS report indicates a similar pattern

These declines in smoking rates are consistent with the assumption that the increase in smoking leads to a long-term decline in smoking among adolescents and young adults. Citing data from the National Youth Tobacco Survey (NYTS) showed that the use of Vape by teenagers increased last year, leading the FDA to use Vape as an “epidemic”.

However, NYTS also showed that the smoking rate of adolescents remained unchanged in last year’s NYTS, and in monitoring future studies, smoking rates in grades 10 and 12 continued to decline, and the results of NSDUH showed a similar trend. The report confirms that, contrary to fear-based accusations, scientific reports have consistently shown the possibility of reducing injuries and quitting smoking

Vape is an effective tool to reduce tobacco consumption

News on July 19th, a study recently published in “Addictive Behavior” once again demonstrated the efficacy and safety of Vape in helping smokers reduce tobacco consumption and improve their lung health.

The study titled “Benefits of Vape in reducing tobacco and lung health in chronic smokers who undergo lung cancer screening within six months” aims to determine whether Vape is considered effective and safe in supporting smoking cessation.

A total of 210 smokers 55 years and older were recruited for the study. They smoked an average of 10 cigarettes for at least 10 years. They were randomly divided into three groups, one group was given nicotine Vape, the other group was given placebo (no nicotine), and the control group was not given Vape. All participants underwent a three-month smoking cessation program, which included a cognitive behavioral program to support them to change behavior and increase motivation to quit smoking.

Data collected through self-reported measurements, clinical evaluations, and the Leicester Cough Questionnaire found that among participants who were still smoking for 6 months, there was a significant difference in the number of cigarettes smoked per day between the two groups, while the nicotine cigarette group averaged daily 11 cigarettes smoked, while the nicotine-free e-cigarette group smoked 14 cigarettes a day, while the control group smoked 13.5 cigarettes.

Among people who still smoked for 6 months, another group difference was the significant difference in exhaled CO between the two groups (p <0.025). The average exhaled CO of participants in the nicotine Vape group was 12.0, while the average exhaled CO of participants in the nicotine-free Vape group was 15.3, and that of the control group was 16.5. (From a health point of view, a lower exhaled carbon dioxide ratio is preferable).

Once again found that Vape can effectively quit smoking

Finally, there was also a significant difference in nicotine dependence between the two groups (p <0.032). All participants had a moderate to low degree of dependence within 6 months; the average core value of smokers in the nicotine Vape group was 3.12, while the average core value of smokers in the Vape group without nicotine was 3.32, while the control group was 3.59.

The researchers concluded that after 6 months, about 20% of the entire sample stopped smoking. Participants who used Vape and nicotine smoked less than any other group after 6 months (p <.020). Our data increases the effectiveness and safety of Vape in helping smokers reduce tobacco consumption and improve lung health.
