Dry Herb Vaporizers Vs. Oil Vaporizers: What You Should Pick And Why

Dry Herb Vaporizers

The Vaporizer scene in Ireland has seen a massive boom in the last few year, and it’s still growing. All across Ireland people are finding that vapes offer a healthy alternative. Before you chose your Vaporizer you have to decide whether you would prefer a unit that works with dry herbs or liquid. Dry herb vaporizers are intended to have the dry herb physically packed into a special chamber on the unit while oils are intended for use with liquid oils similar to an e-cigarette. Which is right for you?


For some people the taste of a hit can be very important, if you’re using your vape all day then you want to make sure that you can take the taste. If you’re a traditionalist and like to taste your herb when you vape then go for a herb vaporizer. Herb vapes promise all the flavour and benefits of dry herb without any of the downsides of combustion.
If you enjoy a bit more variety and using flavoured products then try a liquid oil vaporizer. Oil vapes can be used with concentrate and traditional flavoured e-liquids, allowing you to mix flavours to your preference

Psychoactive Effects

If you want a vaporizer for strictly medicinal purposes then without question an oil vape is for you. CBD oils will allow for fast pain relief with no side effects, CBD for ADD is also an increasing one for adulys. However if you want a vape for more recreational purposes, or if any side effects don’t bother you then consider a herb vaporizer. Herb Vaporizers like the Da Vinci IQ come with precision heat setting that allow you to tailor your vape experience to your personal tastes.


As with anything, with a vape from time to time you’ll have to do some routine maintenance. Over time resin can accumulate around the atomiser. Due to the different properties of oils and dry herb the level of maintenance between the two devices is slightly different as 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 oil has 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.


Portability and convenience is where liquid vapes are incredibly portable. They are typically smaller and more 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 vapes 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.
