The 12 Best Portable Dry Herb Vaporizers of 2020

Vaping, bringing technology and innovation to eliminate the harmful effects of smoking cannabis. Nowadays, the vaporizer market is broader than you may think; there are literally hundreds of options. So if you want to get your first vape or upgrade yours, here’s our pick of the best dry herb vaporizers of 2020.

Jump To Section

Cannabis is getting more accepted every day around the world. Initially for medicinal purposes, and now even for recreational use, weed is being gradually blending in our society for its therapeutic and fun effects. And as cannabis begins to move away from the prohibited drugs category, companies are now focusing on eliminating the most harmful aspect of smoking weed: the smoke itself. Cannabis smoke contains some of the same chemicals found in cigarette smoke, and although they have been proven not to cause cancer, they do have several adverse effects on our lungs. Enter vaporizers.

They come in many shapes, sizes, and prices. With modern-day technological advances, companies are designing new devices that are always more modern, more potent, more solid, and more portable. The truth is that vaping is the safest way available for ‘smoking’ cannabis. These devices use heating mechanisms that prevent combustion, thus extracting only the useful cannabinoids from the plant. The vape market is growing exponentially, and nowadays, there are literally hundreds available. But here we condensed all that into our best dry herb vaporizers of 2020.

But don’t be fooled by its size; it’ll give you up to one hour of continuous use with plenty of super tasty vapor.

If Apple ever made a vaporizer, it would look something pretty much like the Pax 3. Small, elegant, and intuitive, this device has it all. The first thing that stands out is its look. Its inner workings are all inside a 4 inch rounded anodized aluminum shell without buttons. The Pax 3 looks nothing like a vaporizer and fits practically anywhere, an excellent option for the on-the-go vaper. To use it, just press its mouthpiece once to turn it on and another time to choose between its four temperature settings. Or, use the Pax Vapor App to do it remotely. It comes with two different mouthpieces and oven lids to use it with less herb. The Pax 3 will heat up rapidly and automatically when you put your lips on the mouthpiece. For $199, you’ll get design, technology, and smooth vapor.

5. Crafty+ by Storz & Bickel

The smaller brother of the Mighty also deserved a spot on our list. The Crafty+ is compact, super durable, reliable, and very easy to use. The device is entirely made out of high-quality medical-grade materials such as stainless steel and aluminum, it has no glass or ceramic pieces, so it’s a perfect on-the-go device.

A simple yet elegant and durable vaporizer. The Arizer Solo 2 has a basic premise: to give smooth, tasty vapor every time. Materials wise, this device is made out of two pieces: the body, and the mouthpiece. The first one is all made of aluminum and stainless steel; once you have it in your hands, you’ll feel how solid and sturdy it is. The mouthpiece is made out of high-quality borosilicate glass that’s designed to cool down your vapor before it hits your mouth, plus, it does a superb job in preserving the original flavor of your herb. The Arizer Solo 2 is probably one of the easiest to use and clean vapes out there. To pack it, simply fill the mouthpiece and stick it into the oven. You’ll only need to worry about cleaning those two parts. This vape, priced at $180, guarantees the smoothest vapor hits and the highest quality materials.

7. Ghost MV1 by Ghostvapes

This is one of the most potent devices on our list. Made entirely out of metal alloys, the Ghost MV1 is designed for durability and lots of vapor. It comes with three predefined heating settings, but it can also be done through its app, this way you’ll have a chance to choose the exact temperature you want. The amount of vapor that this device can produce, regardless of the temperature setting, is impressive for a mid-level device such as this one. The Ghost MV1 is probably more suited for experienced users since it is somewhat tricky to use and clean, but it’s all because of the vast amounts of vapor it can produce when used appropriately. Get it for $175 and prepare for lots of vapor.

8. Fury EDGE by Healthy Rips

The newest addition to the Fury family is discreet, elegant, and ultra-portable. This pocket-sized all-metal device combines durable with high-quality materials inside and out. Regardless of its compact size, the Fury EDGE delivers plenty of vapor, all thanks to its heating system and its fully isolated stainless steel air path. The device comes with an OLED screen that lets you adjust the temperature and will inform you when it is ready to use and fully charged. To pack it and clean it, simply remove the mouthpiece to reveal the oven. We recommend that you grind your product as much as possible, the coarser, the better. Included in the EDGE’s package, you will find a borosilicate glass mouthpiece that enhances your vapor flavor and smoothness. For $150, you’ll be getting a discreet, palm-sized device that perfect for all occasions.

This vaporizer is one of the most technologically advanced from our list. Perfect for both novice and expert vapers alike. The vaporizer is made of a stainless steel body and a borosilicate glass mouthpiece. High-quality materials ensure durability. The innovation in the Flowermate V5.0 S Pro is in its heating system. The vapor that it delivers is extracted from the herb using a heat conduction mechanism. The air inside its isolated air path heats up and extracts the vapor from the herb, which is then delivered through the mouthpiece. Controlling the temperature is easy and intuitive, it has three side buttons and a LED screen that’s easy to understand. The Flowermate V5.0 S Pro comes with three predefined temperature settings, but it can also be set to a precise degree using the buttons. One of the best value for money options in our list that costs $150.

A vaporizer designed for high-quality vapor at an affordable price. The ONE takes some of the best characteristics of other vaporizers in this list and brings them together to make a super complete, durable, and efficient device. It is similar to most in terms of design: a metal body and a borosilicate glass mouthpiece. Right next to the mouthpiece, you’ll see a digital screen that gives you information on battery life and temperature. The ONE heats the herb using a stainless steel heater and then moves the vapor through an isolated path that connects to the mouthpiece. The device will deliver consistent vapor for 45 minutes before running out of battery and without heating up. A great starter vape for any beginner and an ideal one for someone that wants quality but is on a budget. The ONE sells at $110.

11. X-MAX Starry V3 by XVape

Another super portable and handy device that’s perfect for outdoors and on-the-go vaping. In terms of design, the Starry V3 looks similar to the Pax 3: one single metal piece that can be fully gripped with one hand. This nice compact design will let you pocket your device and carry it around easily. It comes with a digital screen on its side that displays temperature settings and battery life. The Starry V3 has a very ample temperature spectrum, and in just 30 seconds can heat up and be ready to use. When used in the lower temperatures, you’ll get the tastiest vapor possible. But when used in the high settings, flavor quality decreases, but you’ll be impressed by the amount of vapor that comes out of it. For only $95, the Starry V3 is an excellent option for the outdoors, sporty vaper.

12. Boundless CFX by Boundless Technology

A hard-hitting vape for those on a budget. In terms of design, it’s pretty similar to the Might and the Crafty+. It’s a solid one-piece made out of stainless steel and covered with rugged plastic, the CFX is built to last. When it comes to portability it may not be the best option since it has a considerably large size compared to other vapes on this list. But, its size is compensated with its battery life and potency. It will heat up in about 30 seconds and resist one hour of consistent use before running out of battery. Now, when we mean its potent is because of its huge heating element that’s even bigger than the one found in the Mighty. You’ll form a cloud with each hit. Ensure powerful hits every time for only $90.
