The majority of dry herb vapes are convenient electronic devices that allow the vaporization of cannabinoids without combusting plant material. The lack of combustion in these devices leads to a smoother draw that is less harsh on the throat than traditional smoking methods. With a smoother pull, many people who make the switch to vaping have found they are able to pick up on the aromas and terpenes that are normally just a subtle taste when smoking. Along with improved flavor and draw, many dry herb vape users have found that it is easier to conserve their weed once they make the switch. There’s a whole world of vaping out there ready for you to explore!
Generally smoking negatively impacts the mucous membrane, reducing the extent to which you can taste and smell, dry herb vaping is able to avoid this all together. The ability to discern the different terpenes and aromas truly highlights the individuality of each cultivar and allows for a more refined taste when it comes to choosing your cannabis. When shopping for bud to use in a dry herb vape, look for the freshest and highest quality cannabis. Dense and sticky buds perform the best in dry herbs vapes and tend to lead to a thicker “milkier” cloud of vapor along with a stronger flavor profile. Sometimes, with the right bud and tolerance, one bowl from a dry herb vape can be enough for even a seasoned smoker.
Dry herb vapes are able to more efficiently extract the cannabinoids in the plant without destroying them in the smoking process. One bowl of a dry herb vape can be used for multiple sessions until the weed has become fully vaped at which point it is referred to as ABV (already been vaped). Once finished with a vape bowl, the ABV still has some cannabinoids left in it and can be used to make cannabutter or other infusions for edibles. Being able to have multiple vapor sessions off a single bowl and use the weed you’ve already vaped for edibles truly makes dry herb vapes the gift that keeps on giving. If you want to get the most out of your cannabis consumption, give a dry herb vape a try!
