When it comes to using a vaporizer people immediately think of vaping weed or hash. Quite logical because this is mostly what vaporizers are used for. Certainly in the last few years vaporizers have become extremely popular and are selling like hotcakes. Many weed or hash users see the vaporizer as a healthy replacement for their joint. A valid choice because vaping is less harmful than smoking. However, a vaporizer is not just intended for weed or hash. People who do not need the effects of those substances can also use a vaporizer. There are plenty of other herbs for vaporizers. We will tell you more about them in this article.

Surplus of Vaporizer Herbs

There might be a time when you get fed up with being stoned or high. But that will leave you with an expensive vaporizer somewhere in your house. It would be a waste if you could no longer use this simply because you’ve stopped using weed and hash. Well, you don’t need to worry about this because there are plenty of other herbs with which to fill your vaporizer. Lots of people are unaware that you can vape no end of other herbs in a vaporizer. So many, indeed, that our editorship has difficulty remembering all the vaporizer herbs. Understandable, really, because many herbs were already in use before we were even born.

Use of Degummed Hemp Fibre

Vaporizer herbs and extracts can be very fine. So fine that grains can fall through the bottom of the herb chamber. Because of that, use a bit of Vape Wool so it doesn’t happen. What’s more, using this ungummed hemp fibre will save you a lot of trouble when you clean your vaporizer! Even if your vaporizer have a wax or concentrates chamber it’s still a good idea to use Vape Wool.

Where Do Vaporizer Herbs Come From?

Many vaporizer herbs have a rich history. Although most of these herbs are less well-known in the Netherlands, they have been consumed in other countries for many years. In continents like Asia, Africa and South America, indigenous tribes made use of these herbs for all kinds of reasons. Peoples like the Aztecs, Incas and Mayas saw them mainly as stimulants. In some cases herbs were useful as medicines. Many years later, it was realised in Europe as well that herbs can be used for all kinds of purposes.

Vaporizer herbs can have a very wide range of effects. From a feeling of calm to extreme euphoria, vaporizer herbs can take you in all directions. Some have one specific effect, while other herbs have several properties. Would you like to try tripping once? That’s really possible with a vaporizer. Trip herbs like Blue Lotus, Syrian Rue and Morning Glory can produce hallucinations when used and give you the experience of a different reality. Morning Glory contains the powerful, psychedelic substance LSA and Syrian Rue has a high percentage of MAO inhibitors like harmine and harmaline.

Which Herbs resemble Weed and Hash the most? 

It’s difficult to say which of the above herbs most closely resemble hash and weed. After all, weed and hash also have several effects. Depending on which variety you smoke, or in this case vape, the effect is on the body or the mind. If you are used to a weed variety that works to calm and relax, then herbs such as Mulungu and Marihuanilla are the best matching herbs. But for weed varieties that induce an elevated mood or feelings of euphoria, then it makes more sense to choose St. John’s Wort, Guarana or Blue Lotus

Do I necessarily Need a Vaporizer for Herbs?

It’s not absolutely essential to buy a vaporizer for use with herbs. In many cases you can use the vaporizer herbs in a different way. For example, you can brew tea and sometimes the herbs can be smoked. But if you decide on vaping, then take a look at which vaporizer would suit you best.
