Portable dry herb vaporizers are small personal devices designed for vaporizing marijuana or legal CBD bud. These devices have an internal oven that heats up cannabis at precise temperatures to produce vapor. Vaping dry herb a few years back would have required a much larger desktop unit, which meant learning how to vape weed involved being stationary. These days, there are so many great pocket-sized vapes and weed pens, giving you the freedom to vaporize your dank nugs anywhere you go. There are quite a few benefits of vaping versus smoking weed.

Some of these vapes are all-in-one units that are capable of vaporizing dry herb and waxy cannabis concentrates. Finding the right one for you can be very confusing, with literally hundreds of options to choose from. These are the best portable weed vapes we’ve tested.

Linx Gaia

The Linx Gaia is stated to be the first full-quartz chamber convection vaporizer. It produces clarity of flavor that’s rare at its price point. It has a non-replaceable 2200 mAh battery, an OLED screen, variable temperature adjustability, and it can be used while it charges. The chamber holds about 0.3 grams comfortably that, when packed appropriately, results in even heating and a consistent AVB. What makes the Gaia different from other convection portables is that the heated air flows in a dedicated vapor path, bypassing internal electronics. That should give the user greater peace of mind in knowing they’re vaping herb, not the device itself. Users can expect to get a couple of days of heavy usage out of the battery, and maybe up to a few with moderate usage.

  • Bowl size: 0.3 g – 0.5 g
  • Heat up time: 40 seconds
  • Power/temp settings: 230° F – 446° F
  • Material compatibility: dry herb

  • Build quality: metal
  • Type of heat: convection
  • Vapor path: quartz
  • Ease of cleaning: moderately easy
