One of the most asked question over the past two years has been “Do dry herb vaporizer pens smell?” The short answer is yes, vaporizers are going to smell so don’t expect to go completely James Bond incognito with them. There is a way to make sure you are being as discreet as possible and that is to minimize the smell from your dry herb vape pen.
Conduction and convection is what you want to look for if you are wondering about the smell of dry herb vaporizers. Conduction is going to be when your dry herbs are sitting directly on the heating element coils. This means that your herbs are burning or also known as combustion. This is almost the same as smoking a cigarette where you are burning it straight through rather than vaporizing. Some dry herb vaporizer pens can be used with a honeycomb glass screen where it sits on your coil to help your herbs not come in direct contact with the heating element. Convection is the process of hot air being transferred from through your herbs which causes true vaporization. This herbs produce vapor which gives you a clean and nice quality taste of your dry herbs. The honeycomb glass tries to replicate this process for conduction type vaporizer pens.
So which one do I want?
