Runner-up

Desktop vapes were the first vaporizers ever sold on the open market. Originally designed as an alternative to smoking weed, they’re essentially special ovens that bake dry herb at specific temperatures to produce vapor. The vapor is then inhaled using a tube, referred to as a whip, or using traditional vaporizer bags.

Dry herb desktop vapes typically plug into the wall and run on A/C power. Today there are also many portable dry herb vaporizers that use rechargeable batteries. Vaping weed or even legal high CBD strains provide a different experience from smoking, with more pronounced flavor with less odor. Here are the best desktop vapes currently on the market.
