One of the most frequent questions we hear from dry herb enthusiasts is, “can I vape weed in a vape tank?” If we’re talking about an e-liquid vape tank, the answer is “no.” It doesn’t work that way. Most atomizers are made for e-liquid only. The good news is there are a few that were designed specifically for weed!

Before you spend a hundred bucks or more on a portable weed vape, you might want to look into some less expensive dry herb atomizers first. Find out what they are, and how to use them in the guide below. Here are the best dry herb atomizers available to date.

What is a dry herb atomizer?

A dry herb atomizer is a vape tank designed for weed. They all work differently, but each has a few common attributes. Dry herb tanks are powered by regular vape mods through their 510 connection. All weed vape tanks have a heating element to provide heat to your herb. Some dry herb vape tanks contain regular coils, whereas others utilize coil-less heating systems. They allow you to dial in your preferred temperature setting using a variable wattage mod.

Despite the name “dry herb vaporizer tanks,” they work differently from your standard dry herb vaporizers. The weed often comes in direct contact with the heating element, which can get pretty hot. It requires some trial and error to achieve the perfect temperature for your particular device. Some of them are all-in-one units that include a battery designed specifically for that atomizer. They don’t require you to own a mod or know anything about adjusting the wattage. All in all, dry herb atomizer tanks are a nice change of pace from your typical bowls and joints.

How to use a dry herb vaporizer tank

You will have a much smoother experience with your 510 dry herb tank if you follow these tips:

  • Attach your dry herb atomizer tank to your mod’s 510 connector.
  • Grind your herbs finely with a weed grinder.
  • Fill up your dry herb vape tank with herb, but don’t overpack it.
  • Use a dab tool to gently pack the herb in.
  • Make sure your device is on and set to the preferred setting.
  • Hold the fire button for 2-3 seconds and inhale.
  • To control the heat, you can slowly pulse the fire button on and off.
  • If it’s not hitting hard enough, gradually raise the wattage.
  • After a few hits, you can use the dab tool to gently stir your herb.
  • Once you’re done, be sure to remove all of the debris.
  • Grain alcohol is cheap and effective for cleaning your tank.

Each one has its own distinct advantages; some are better for flavor, while others will hit you harder. It’s usually a trade-off. Be sure to take good care of your dry herb atomizer and it will last you much longer. If you wondered if you can use dry herb with your favorite vape device, now you know!
