Many of us may think that dry herb vaporizers are no different with cigarettes, at least when puffing them. Yes, it is true that these devices are not difficult to use. You have to remember, however, that it will take time learning how you can use it to give you flavorful puffs all the time. The secret lies in knowing how to pack the dry herb vaporizer the right way.
What’s Up with an Improperly Packed Vaporizer?
You won’t know the right way of packing a dry herb vaporizer unless you know when you have improperly packed one. There are symptoms for that. One of those symptoms is you will notice that the herbs don’t seem to come in contact with each other. Also, you will notice that the device does not produce vapor as expected.
How you wish you can just increase the vaporizer temperature to get the puffing flavor and experience that you want! When you do so, you will be disgusted to find out later on that the oven is full of ash. The improperly packed vaporizer will give you the usual smoking experience, instead of vaping which should be the result of shifting to using this device.
Invest in a Dry Herb Grinder
This can be used so that the herbs will be grinded uniformly, and finely. When herbs are finely grinded, it will increase the herbs’ surface area. This will improve the heat transfer and will assure that heating is even all throughout. As a result, you can eliminate the scenario of having an unused material inside your vaporizer’s chamber.
Learning the Type of Vaporizer You are Using
One of the best ways to assure that you are packing your herbs properly is to learn what type you are using. There are conduction vaporizers. These ones have oven walls that heat the herb directly. They depend on the physical contact made between the oven walls and the herb, in order to reach the correct temperature when vaping.
There are also convection vaporizers. Unlike conduction vaporizers, these ones are not portable. They heat the herbs indirectly using a fan, one that blows hot air through the herbs. This hot air passes through the herbs before reaching the center of the oven.
Packing Different Types of Vaporizers
The goal of packing a conduction vaporizer is different when packing its convection counterpart. For conduction or portable vaporizers, you need to focus on assuring that there is physical contact in the oven. In the case of convection vaporizers, you must make sure that the materials are fitted in the open such that the airflow is not restricted when heating the herbs.
For conduction vaporizers, the herbs must be grinded as finely as possible. Grinding herbs to smaller particles will maximize the surface area. Sprinkle the ground herbs into the oven, making sure there are enough herbs for better physical contact. Apply little pressure to achieve this result. As for convection vaporizers, you do not need to grind the herbs as finely as possible. You can sprinkle the ground herbs into the oven without mounding them higher than the oven’s edge.
