Dry Herb Vaporizers Vs. Oil Vaporizers

Posted by Affiliate Namaste on

Pax 3 Vaporizer

Before choosing your vaporizer you’ve got some decisions to make. The biggest question is whether you would prefer a unit that works with dry herbs or concentrates (Also known as oils). Dry herb vaporizers are intended to have the dry herb physically packed into a special chamber on the unit while oil vaporizers are intended for use with liquid oils . Which is right for you?

Taste, Taste, Taste

For pretty much everyone the taste of a hit can be the most important aspect of a vape unit. No one wants to invest a vape that’ll leave a bad taste in your mouth. If you’re using your vape all day then you want it to taste good, makes sense. Dry herb vaporizers, on the whole, give a better taste than oils. There’s just a greater consistency to them in my opinion.

If you enjoy a bit more variety, however, and perhaps enjoy the novelty aspect, then get a oil vaporizer. Oil vapes can be used with concentrate and traditional flavoured e-liquids, allowing you to mix flavours to your preference.


As with anything, vapes will from time to time require some maintenance. Over time resin can accumulate around the atomiser. This will be dependent on how often you use it, naturally. Because of the various differences between oils and dry herbs the level of maintenance between the two kinds of devices is slightly different. For example, liquid vapes are more prone to resin build-up.

Cleaning a herb vape is straightforward, with a bit of rubbing alcohol and a small brush you can clean any errant resin. Liquid vapes are more of a task because oils have a tendency to flow and drip to hard-to-reach places; but with a bit of elbow grease you can manage it. To help keep your units clean we offer a range of cleaning products from brushes to solutions; everything you need to keep your vape slick and span.

What's More Portable?

Portability and convenience is where liquid vapes really come into their own. They are typically smaller and compact than dry herb vaporizers, often resembling e-liquid pens. For an example of this check out the Dr. Dabber Light Kit Vaporizer. While dry herb vapes aren’t as small as oil vaporizers they are still very portable, with many featuring long battery lives and power saving features so they don’t die when you’re out and about.
