Everything You Need To Know About Dry Herb Vaporizers


An herbal vaporizer is a vaporizer for weed designed for medical or legal recreational use. It works by heating up dry herbs using electric power supplied by a battery. Inside the heating chamber, dry herbs become hot thereby releasing vapor that a user inhales via a mouthpiece at the top. Marijuana vaporizer prevents combustion of weed from taking place, and hence inhibits toxic smoke from entering into your lungs; our bodies absorb only pure vapor comprising of Cannabinoids.

How convenient to use are they?

Dry Herb vaporizers are designed to be used with crushed herbs. With their stealthy and portable size, use is both discreet and personal. The vaporizers also offer convenience considering they can fit into a user’s pocket and do not require a cord to operate.

The ideal temperature to vaporize with

The answer to this question depends on two factors. If you are in public and your weed contains insignificant moisture, possibly because you’ve kept it for quite some time, the ideal temperature to use ranges from 325 to 350 degrees. Such temperatures produce the lightest vapor that contains the least odor. If on the other hand, you have health problems in your lungs, you should only vaporize between 350 and 375 degrees, the ideal temperature for vaping.

Features to look for when buying

  1. Chamber size

The size of a vaporizer’s chamber determines the duration users vape marijuana before refilling the vaporizer. Choose a size that will not require a frequent refill.

  1. Battery

Vaporizers differ on how long batteries last before they need to be recharged. The best vaporizer is the one whose battery lasts a considerable duration of time and does not inconvenience the user by exhausting the charge within a very short time

  1. Portability

The size of your dry herb vaporizer affects how easy to carry around it is as well as how unnoticeable it is. However, larger vapes tend to have bigger chambers (hence do not require frequent refill) and longer lasting batteries compared to their smaller counterpart. Try to balance between its portability and battery life to get a vape that most suits you.

High-quality vaporizers to consider

  1. Pax 2

Pax 2 utilizes an advanced “lip-sense” and motion technology that senses the length of draw and regulates heat accordingly. It also optimizes power by cooling down when it is not being used.

Exercise caution not to raise the heating temperatures too high while using lest you burn your weed and make it produce smoke. Since there are very many pot vaporizer brands, find your ideal vaporizer for you and enjoy the benefits.

Mission Statement

Mission Statement

Kentucky Norml is a not-for-profit corporation working to reform marijuana laws. Our board of directors and members donate their time and we rely on donations from concerned citizens like yourself. The three issues we deal with are Medical Marijuana, Recreational use of Marijuana, and Industrial Hemp. As public support continues to grow, we look forward to assisting Americans in finding a solution that works!

(Marijuana, like other drugs, is not for kids. There are many activities in our society that we permit adults to do, but forbid children, such as motorcycle riding, skydiving, signing contracts, getting married and drinking alcohol or smoking tobacco. However, we do not condone arresting adults who responsibly engage in these activities in order to dissuade our children from doing so. Nor can we justify arresting adult marijuana smokers on the grounds of sending a message to children. Our expectation and hope for young people is that they grow up to be responsible adults, and our obligation to them is to demonstrate what that means.)

Recreational Use

It’s time to stop arresting responsible marijuana smokers. Millions of Americans use marijuana; few abuse it. Arresting these otherwise law-abiding citizens serves no legitimate purpose; extends government into inappropriate areas of our private lives; and causes enormous harm to the lives, careers and families of the more than 500,000 marijuana smokers arrested each year in this country.

Medical Marijuana

Marijuana prohibition applies to everyone, including the sick and dying. Of all the negative consequences of prohibition, none is as tragic as the denial of medicinal cannabis to the tens of thousands of patients who could benefit from its therapeutic use. Basic compassion and common sense demand we allow America’s seriously ill citizens to use whatever medication their physicians’ deem safe and effective to alleviate their pain and suffering.

Since 1996, voters in eight states — Alaska, Arizona, California, Colorado, Maine, Nevada, Oregon and Washington — have adopted initiatives exempting patients who use marijuana under a physician’s supervision from state criminal penalties.

Industrial Hemp

In North Carolina, Kentucky and other tobacco producing states, there has been an increasing interest in alternative crops. Tobacco producers are interested in diversification because of questions about the future of that crop.

Although few alternative crops can be expected to yield high returns comparable to tobacco, industrial hemp fiber for paper and textile production has been suggested as a possibility.

There are 25,000 known uses for industrial hemp! These include textiles, paper goods, and alternative fuels.

Industrial hemp falls well below the International Standard for Drug Abuse Potential. In fact attempting to grow smokeable marijuana with industrial hemp would actually cause reduced potency and poor quality. We must force law enforcement to abandon their propaganda campaign and tell people the real facts.

Over 30 nations grow hemp including Canada, England, and China! In 1938 “Popular Mechanics Magazine” predicted that hemp would be a billion dollar industry in America. We’ve waited long enough!
