When people think of vaping with leaves they typically jump to the thought of vaping with cannabis. However, this is only one type of leaf that can be used out of many. Dry herbs are a great alternative that can provide you with a variety of flavors. And these herbs are legal in all fifty states. Let’s take a closer look at what these are below.


Also referred to as Passion Flower, this shrub provides a sedative effect for the user. If you suffer from nighttime insomnia, this can be the perfect cure to help you catch some zzzs. It’s important to note that there are literally over five hundred different types of passiflora that is available for vaping. Not all of these have the sedative effects, so ensure you buy a product that does if that is what you are looking for.

St. John’s Wort 

This has a weird name, but it’s much more entertaining than it’s official name of hypericum perforatum. This herb blocks specific neurotransmitters in the brain that affect your mood. For this reason, St. John’s Wort is commonly used as an antidepressant vaping material. One extremely important thing to note about this herb is that it can lessen the effect of birth control pills. So ladies, if you are on the pill, you should avoid this herb.

Turnera Diffusa 

You may also hear this referred to as damiana leaf. This little herb has been used for centuries to increase sexual libido in men and women. When vaping this ingredient, users report a slightly intoxicated feeling.

Now that you are familiar with some of the most popular herbs that are used in vaporizers, it’s time to talk about the equipment. To vaporize herbs, you will need a specialized vaporizer that is made for dry ingredients. You cannot use these in e-cigs or in some vape pens. There are two different types of dry vaporizers.

Desktop Dry Vaporizer 

If you do not vape on the go, then a desktop dry vaporizer is the best pick for you. This is a large vaping system that needs to sit on a flat surface. It will usually be either a bag or a whip set up. These vaporizers require a power source to work. The added power allows for a much stronger taste and much more vapor to be generated.

Portable Dry Vaporizer 

This is what you probably think of when you think of a vaporizer. Portable vapes are easy to carry around and are intended for personal use. These will fit in your pocket and allow you to inhale vapors whenever you have the urge to. Portable vaporizers are battery powered and typically last between one and five hours.

If you are a current vapor or are thinking of trying vaping, using herbs is a good way to go. These will allow you to taste the natural aroma of these natural substances. In addition, they will allow you to take advantage of some natural healing effects, such as boosting libido or decreasing depression, that you simply cannot get with other forms of vaping.
