What is a Dry Herb Vaporizer?
A dry herb vaporizer is a portable battery-operated device that creates vapour for inhalation from dry herb materials. It has a small chamber in which dry herb is heated up, and when it reaches a suitable temperature depending on the material used, vapour is produced which you then inhale through a mouthpiece.
There are various types of dry herb vaporizers: vape pens, hand-held portable dry herb vaporizers and the desktop varieties that are stationery. In our vaporizer shop we sell portable dry herb vaporizers.
Nectar vaporizers are primarily convection vaporizers, though there is a small conduction aspect as the herbs touch the sides of the chamber. Convection is a method whereby the dry herb is surrounded by hot air in order to release vapour. Conduction on the other hand creates vapour by having the herb touch the heat source, so there is more combustion. Therefore, many people prefer the convection method as there is no combustion. Convection vaping generally leads to less wastage and stronger vapours. Whilst convection heating is slower to heat up the herb than conduction, it’s more efficient and releases more of the flavour profiles of the herb material.
Can You Only Use Dry Herbs With Nectar Vaporizers?
The Nectar V2 dry herb vaporizer is for use with dry herb only. If you would like to have the option of vaporising both dry herb and concentrates then the Nectar Gold and Nectar Platinum provide this 2-in-1 function.
Concentrates (also known as wax or resin) are the liquid form of dry herbs which you can obtain through extraction. If you want to check out how to make concentrates at home, this can now be done safely and easily with a diy rosin press machine.
Can I Use My Nectar Dry Herb Vaporizer with a Bong?
Yes! Any of the Nectar dry herb vaporizers can easily be used with a bong or to create a vape-bong setup. There are two ways you can do this: with your own bong if you have one using the Nectar glass bong adapter, or if you don’t have your own bong, with the Nectar glass water bubbler. Here’s more on these two methods.
With Your Own Bong
If you have a bong already, you can use the Nectar glass bong adapter to connect any Nectar dry herb vaporizer to your bong. So you get to take advantage of the cooler vapour from the added water filtration in the bong, whilst also having the benefit of the vaporizer’s heating chamber and the filtering out of the fine debris from reaching your throat.
A glass bong adapter gives you the power to take control of your vaping experience and enjoy an even smoother vaping experience. Many people find this setup reduces coughing as the vapour is less dry and therefore easier on the throat. Also, a bong provides bigger hits of cool, cleaner vapour than with just a bong.
The Nectar glass bong adapter is of medicinal grade and can be used with any of our vaporizers: Nectar v2, Nectar Gold or the Nectar Platinum.
Without Your Own Bong
The Nectar glass water bubbler, or vape bubbler, is the middle ground between a large bong, which can be somewhat cumbersome, and a non-cooling dry pipe. It lets you enjoy the benefits of a bong in an easy, portable way.
Since it’s small, it can be easily carried around whilst you’re on the go (but do remember to protect it well as it is glass!)
You get the benefits of a bong with the water filtering out toxins resulting in cleaner, as well as cooler vapour.
You don’t need any other accessories with the Nectar glass water bubbler – it already comes with a connector to attach the bubbler to your Nectar dry herb vaporizer, whether the Nectar v2, Nectar Gold or the Nectar Platinum The Nectar glass water bubbler is made of medicinal grade glass.
