Portable Dry Herb FAQs

How are portable dry herb devices heated?

Open tab

There are a variety of heat sources depending on which device you're considering. All Arizer, Storz & Bickel, and XMAX portable devices operate using a battery for maximum convenience. Vapman devices are heated with a butane torch and Dynavap can operate with a torch, alcohol lamp, induction heater, and lots more!

How do I swap bowls while on the go?

Open tab

Many portable devices allow you to utilize dosing capsules (or dosing caps for short) which you can pre-fill with your ground herbal material. Then when you're out all you have to do is swap out the caps and you won't have to worry about brushing out any herbal material. This also reduces the cleaning burden on your device so they're really a win-win!

How do I load my device's oven?

Open tab

Each device is unique, but the general principles are fairly consistent. Importantly, you want to make sure that there is room in the oven for air to circulate which allows you to get a nice and even extraction. While some devices benefit from a light pack, generally we advise against tamping down your flower inside the bowl. For Arizer and Dynavap devices we like to load via the straw method where you inhale the flower into the bowl. This loosely packs the bowl and ensures air can circulate during your hit.

Desktop Dry Herb FAQs

What is a ball vape?

Open tab

Ball vaporizers are wall-plug units that utilize a PID controller and heater coil to provide the heat. The heater coil is enclosed in a housing which is filled with 3mm rubies that retain all of the heat from the coil without imparting any flavor. Ultimately ball vapes offer some of the most powerful and flavorful dry herb vaporization ever and if you haven't had a chance to try one we equate the hit to taking a dab directly off of your ground flower.

How do I fill a balloon with vapor?

Open tab

The balloon style of consumption has been popularized by movies like Super High Me and the iconic Storz & Bickel Volcano. Ultimately all that is required is a heater and a fan to force your vapor into the balloon. We carry great devices from Elev8 and Arizer that offer similar functionality giving you lots of options for vapor balloon sessions.

What's the most powerful ball vape?

Open tab

There's a couple answers to this question depending on what you're looking for. For raw power the Taroma Lite XL and Taroma XL are absolute beasts that can keep up with any tolerance! However, for efficiently taking down a smaller bowl the Taroma 360 is about as good as it gets allowing you to fully extract in a very short amount of time.
