As the name suggests, a dry herb vape is designed to be used with flower material, most often cannabis. Cannabinoids within the plant material are vaporized without any combustion taking place.
The two most common types of dry herb vapes are conduction and convection.
A conduction vape works by direct contact with the flower material. An element will heat up and cause the cannabinoids to vaporize for the user to inhale. You could think of a conduction vape as being somewhat like a frying pan, where the food is in direct contact with the pan.
A convection vape works by heating air, which is then circulated through the material, vaporizing the cannabinoids evenly. A convection vape is similar to an oven, where there is no direct contact and the hot air does all the work.
Most dry herb vapes are electronic but vapes like the Dynavap are completely analogue and require a jet lighter to heat the element, which in turns heats the flower material and vaporizes the cannabinoids.
In most cases, yes. Temperature can be raised and lowered to adjust the strength of the hit. Most people will use a lower temperature earlier in the day and a higher temperature in the evening to aid with sleep. Some devices have controls on the actual device and some devices are controlled via an app. Dry herb vapes that have on-device control may have an LCD screen or LED lights as the user interface.
