What Is A Dry Herb Vaporizer?
So, first things first, what is a dry herb vaporizer? We need to know the answer to this question before we can speak about all the best things to do whilst using one. A dry herb vaporizer is a small portable device that heats up cannabis without combusting it (smoking). It uses the process of convection or conduction to warm up the weed at a temperature that does not burn it, meaning it creates vapour to be inhaled rather than smoke. This is a great deal more healthy. Also, because the cannabis is not burned, a lot more flavour and strength remains. This means you can enjoy the taste of your bud more than if you had smoked it. If you haven’t got one already, check out our article on the best hemp vaporizers in the UK.
Different Ways Of Using A Dry Herb Vaporizer
When using a dry herb vaporizer there are a few different ways you can insert your cannabis. You can do this either in dry herb form, much like you would in a common joint. Or, you can insert it as a concentrate. Some more contemporary dry herb vaporizers allow you to insert both in the same vape, whereas some only allow you to insert one. So make sure you are aware of this before purchase. Dry herb is the cannabis in its bud form, and it should be ground up evenly before putting it in the dry herb vaporizer. This will ensure the dry herb is heated evenly and none of it gets left out. Concentrates or wax are dry herbs after the process of extraction. It is an oily, honey-like, texture and it can also be vaped. Whichever way you decide to use the dry herb vaporizer, the fun things will be the same. So let’s finally take a look at the top 10 things to do to enjoy your dry herb vaporizer experience to the max.

Alternatively, why not enjoy a glorious, dreamy sleep? If you’ve decided to use a dry herb vaporizer in order to help you with sleeping problems, then enjoy some well-earned rest. Allow the experience to drift you away to a faraway land. However, if you simply want to see what sort of dreams might take place whilst vaping, then do the same thing. Lie somewhere comfortable, close your eyes, let your mind take you on a journey. This can also help if you’ve been stressing about certain elements of your life. You can bring it to mind, sit with it, and see if a sleepy place brings you some clarity.
It is a well-known fact that enjoying dry herbs can make the colours around you brighter, and the world you are in more exciting visually. Sometimes the best thing to do when enjoying mother earth’s natural herbs is to be surrounded by mother earth at the same time. Go somewhere with grass, trees, plants, and stroll around. Breathing air will avoid you feeling claustrophobic too. If you have any viewpoints around where you live, go to them. If you have a beautiful field, sit in it. There is a common misconception that weed is an experience best suited to sitting down inside and doing nothing, but this is not always correct. Sometimes doing things and seeing things is exactly what you need.
Life is short, enjoy it whilst you can.
Another great thing to do whilst using a dry herb vaporizer is going to an exhibition. This could be an art exhibition or a museum exhibition.

I’m sure we all know someone who has sat and watched the entirety of Blue Planet when high.

Well, the truth is, television can be extremely stimulating when using a dry herb vaporizer. If you choose the right thing to watch, it can be an incredible experience. You will usually be able to tell the kind of mood you are in, and subsequently what you would like to watch. However, here is a short list of some of the great high-watches.

Creativity can be at an all time high when enjoying cannabis from a dry herb vaporizer. Sometimes all you need is a pen and paper or the ‘notes’ app on your phone. Whether it’s a poem, a story, a song, or just word vomit, give yourself the licence to write something. We can be very judgemental of ourselves when we try to be creative, but most of the time this is just a negative voice that has grown from societal pressures to be a certain type of person. Everyone has the potential to be creative. Using a dry herb vaporizer can unlock this part of yourself. If you feel the urge to write, then write. It might be the finest thing you’ve ever written. Or not. But even so, creativity isn’t about good and bad. It’s about expression.
It’s not only your visual field that can be intensified when you use a dry herb vaporizer, but also sound. The music you listen to could sound much better than usual.

Alternatively, you could make yourself a playlist on Spotify or Apple Music and combine it with a nature walk. Perhaps now is the time to listen to new music. Music you wouldn’t usually listen to.
Similarly to sleeping, meditation gives you an opportunity to check in with yourself and your thoughts. The chill you experience when vaping a dry herb vaporizer could help you reach a calm and level-headed approach when thinking about stresses or worries. Take some time out of your busy life, enjoy some weed, and allow your mind to figure things out slowly, and without pressure. If you are not certain how to meditate, there are many guided meditations on Youtube, or you can download Headspace or the WakingUp app.
Eat. Eat. And eat some more. Just like how sounds and sights are intensified after inhaling weed from a dry herb vaporizer, so is taste. Enjoy a meal from a place you love and enjoy how the tastes enhance in your mouth. You could even book a table at a restaurant you have always wanted to try, and go there.
