Mar 25 · 5 min read
Dry herb vaping tobacco is incredibly popular in Japan and South Korea. But why hasn’t this trend reached us here in the West yet? Well, there is a common misconception that it’s not possible. But, this is indeed a misconception, vaping tobacco is definitely possible, and there are actually many reasons why it is better than smoking cigarettes and even vaping nicotine e-liquid.
Can You Dry Herb Vape Tobacco?
Most definitely! Dry herb vapes don’t just have to be used with dry cannabis! They can be used with other plants and herbs for aromatherapeutic purposes, and they can also be used with dry tobacco!
Sm o king and vaping tobacco are similar in one sense: the fact that you get the nicotine fix your body is after. But from there on, there are many differences between smoking and vaping tobacco, and most of them turn out to be in favor of vaping tobacco.
Many people prefer to vape tobacco for the many benefits it has over smoking cigarettes. Curious to know about these benefits? Here are the pros and cons of vaping tobacco:
Pros and Cons of Vaping Tobacco
Vaping tobacco allows you to inhale pure nicotine-filled vapor
Vaping tobacco ends up being cheaper than smoking cigarettes
Tobacco vapor has a significantly weaker smell than tobacco smoke
Tobacco vapor doesn’t contain tar and other toxins that tobacco smoke contains
Vaping tobacco is much cleaner in a sense, because users will smell better, and they won’t have to deal with constant ashes or cigarette ends.
Dry herb vaping is as addictive as smoking cigarettes due to it nicotine content
It can seem like more work due to overall maintenance of dry herb vapes
Smokers can expect to experience withdrawals when switching to vaping, even if it’s tobacco they’re vaping
There is a lot of cleaning needed to take care of a frequently used vaporizer, and for some, it can be a hassle compared to the ease of smoking cigarettes
It can be hard to switch from smoking to vaping tobacco because they are so different, and it is hard to get used to it at first. But it’s well worth it!
As you can see, smoking cigarettes is best for quick and ‘easy’ relief from cravings, and they don’t require much maintenance (unless you count picking up endless cigarette butts and emptying ashtrays daily as maintenance). But vaping offers so much more than cigarettes do. To start off, vaping allows you to get your nicotine fix without having to inhale the hundreds of additional toxins produced during the combustion process, and that in itself is enough for many to switch from smoking to vaping.
But this sounds familiar doesn’t it? E-liquid with nicotine is the most popular way of vaping nicotine, and it is available all over the market. So why would people dry herb vape tobacco when they can just vape nicotine e-liquids?
Vaping Tobacco vs Vaping E-liquids: What’s the Difference?
To start off, vaping dry herbs (of all kinds) and vaping e-liquid are quite different. Dry herb vapes heat up the product until the goodies are vaporized and then inhaled, and e-liquid vapes vaporize the e-liquid which is then inhaled.
But is one better than the other? Are there enough differences between them to choose ‘the best’? Let’s see:
Tobacco vapor is all-natural, since the contents of the vapor are just what’s in the tobacco plant
Vaping tobacco is considered the ‘best way’ to get your nicotine fix in terms of vaping because it’s natural
Tobacco vapor has a mild smell, but nothing compared to tobacco smoke
Vaping tobacco requires dry herb and a dry herb vaporizer
Vaping tobacco has to be at temperatures under 390 F, or else it can combust
Vaping e-liquid is synthetic, since e-liquid is made from propylene glycol and vegetable glycerin, with artificial flavors and nicotine
Some people don’t want to vape e-liquids because they are synthetic, and they prefer to steer clear of the cheimcals
E-liquid vapor doesn’t have a smell like tobacco smoke or vapor, however it can definitely smell fruity or minty, depending on the flavour of your vape liquid
Vaping e-liquid is normally done with a vape pen (or e-liquid-friendly vape) and e-liquid
E-liquid’s ‘perfect temperature’ is from 390 F to 420 F (much higher than vaping tobacco)
Does Vaping Tobacco Produce Smoke?
It’s easy to suppose that vaping tobacco will produce smoke, since that’s what we’re all used to seeing. But that’s not the case. Vaping tobacco does not produce smoke, it produces vapor!
How does this work? The dry tobacco inside the dry herb vape chamber is heated up, either by convection heating or conduction heating, and the oils in tobacco (which contain nicotine) are turned into vapor, which is then inhaled.
Vaping loose leaf tobacco is a completely smoke free method of getting your nicotine fix the natural way, and people find it quite pleasant once they get used to it. It’s quite easy to do, and very easy to get used to after the initial change.
However, if a dry herb vaporizer produces smoke, there is something wrong with your vaporizer, or the way you’re vaping the tobacco. As mentioned above, there is a possibility of vaping tobacco at higher temperatures than needed, which can cause the dry herb to produce smoke.
On another note, if you don’t take proper care of your vaporizer, there is a chance that it can begin to collect debris in and around the vape unit, which will then heat up too much and begin to combust, producing smoke. If this happens, stop using the vaporizer immediately.
Now you know why people find vaping tobacco with a dry herb vaporizer so nice and so worth it! It’s quite simple and easy to do, it is natural, it doesn’t produce smoke, and can be a better way to get your nicotine fix.
We suggest always making sure your vaping equipment is high quality, and that all your product is also high quality and pure. Also, don’t forget to always clean your vaporizer unit thoroughly in order to make sure it doesn’t malfunction. Lastly, always stay under 390 F to ensure you’re getting vapor and not smoke.
