Box mods have taken vaping and vapes to the next level. If you already own a box mod battery you’re already halfway to a quality dry herb vaporizer!
These dry herb atomizers are the best way to vaporize weed / dry herb with your box mod. There are several low-quality attachments and vape tanks intentionally left off this list.
Dry herb tanks have existed for many years, but have only recently hit a quality threshold worth wasting money on.
If the dry herb atomizer you’re looking at isn’t on this list – it’s probably a piece of shit or just not ‘readily available enough’ to be on a list like this.
Dry Herb Atomizers
The two best dry herb atomizers available are the Stempod and the Splinter. Both are very different than the typical dry herb tank. The Stempod, from Modpod Labs, and the Splinter, from RBT Engineering, are both convection vaporizers. While other dry herb tanks simply heat your weed until it starts producing vapor, these two dry herb atomizers use the 510 power to create a convection vaporizer which produces more vapor and a much nicer experience. They’re also MUCH faster than the other herb tanks.
RastaBuddhaTao has been producing quality dry herb vapes for several years. The RBT Zion and Milaana vaporizers were absolute game-changers for modern stoners.
The RBT Splinter utilizes a 510 mod to bring full convection dry herb vaporization to the palm of your hand. Splinter and Splinter Z bodies are hand-turned from responsibly harvested woods. The convection heaters in the Splinter are handmade and never need to be replaced, unlike other dry herb vape mods on this list.
Available for $120 in the RBT Store.
The Tubox isn’t quite the same format as the usual Dry herb atomizers, but it outperforms many of today’s modern dry herb vapes.
I don’t own a Tubox to compare, but it’s literally the same heater and can be controlled by the same mod so it’s essentially a Tubo Evic – which is one of the best handheld dry herb vaporizers around.
The TUBOx has a 6 week wait time and will set you back $128.
Other Dry Herb Vape Tanks
There are other dry herb atomizers for box mods, but I much prefer the Stempod and Splinter over the rest of the list. The three vapes listed above are pure convection and give the user full control of the vapor experience. The vapes below sacrifice agility, vapor experience, and build quality for a lower price.
Divine Crossing – Rebuildable Dry Herb Atomizer
This dry herb tank uses a ceramic heating element to heat the bowl and air intake. It looks sexy and comes from a brand I trust, but the performance just isn’t what I would expect from a dry herb vape. The vapor starts coming around on the 4th hit. A better vape will have the bowl fully extracted by then. The DC dry herb 510 atomizer is available at ineedhemp.com for $39. I’d still buy this before anything below.
Mig Vapor Sub-Herb Atomizer
The Mig Vapor Herb atomizer is a makeshift radiant/conduction vaporizer for dry herb and cannabis. It slips on to any 510 thread and powers up with 20-50 watts of power. The Black Sub Herb Atomizer produces vapor in about 10 seconds, and that’s the end of the positive list. The flavor is mediocre at best, especially when compared to the convection vapes on this list. The bright side is it’s only $42 so it doesn’t sting so much when you decide to throw it away and upgrade.
G Pen / G Slim Ground Material Vaporizer
What is this a joke? Yeah pretty much. I can’t imagine how this thing ended up on the market. G-pen has removed it from their websites, but smokeshops all over the country are still pushing this junk onto innocent victims. I’ve never heard a single piece of decent advice about vapes from smoke shop employees. This coil based “vaporizer” takes a pinch of weed and turns it into a weird mix of ash and disappointment. This isn’t a good vape. Please do not buy it. I’m listing it here to tell you how terrible it is. AVOID.
