After trying to decipher the name, we powered up the RYOT Verb vaporizer and gave it a whirl. Is this strangely named vape able to compete with the best of the best in the budget dry herb vaporizer category? A crowded market, the sub-$100 herb vape category is fierce with the competition with units like the Utillian 421 and LITL 1 being so solid.

Review: RYOT Verb vaporizer (Dry Herb Vaporizer)
How it Works
As with any dry herb vape, you’ll want to use ground herb and pack the bowl up and tamp it down gently. Three taps turn the device both on and off and then the temperature can be set using the corresponding buttons.
Throw the mouthpiece back on and wait for it to heat and slowly inhale to get vapor! Dry herb vapes as a whole are pretty simple and the VERB DHB is no different.
With the OLED display, you get full incremental control of temperature. While this is great and all, we have a feeling that the RYOT vaporizer is a bit miscalibrated and not giving the true temperature. It’s not so bad and you still get full temperature control. You could also check out the Arizer Solo 2 which has a circular temperature controlling mechanism for precise flexibility.
Well, it’s okay. It’s a step up from some really cheap units like the G-Pen, but not nearly on par with the likes of the Zeus Arc GT. The vapor is quite warm due to the short path, the flavor drops off pretty hard after the first couple hits, and doesn’t produce as dense of clouds as we’d like to see.
The bowl is quite large though and you can pack a good chunk in there. Going through the entire bowl will definitely get you feeling it!
If you’re looking for the best vapor quality though, then we’d definitely look elsewhere. It’s fine but doesn’t impress us in any way really.
While we see some of the visual inspiration taken from a unit like the Airvape X, the RYOT VERB DHB just feels a bit cheaper as a whole. While it’s not bad per-se, it’s not great and it feels a bit below the standard now. Maybe a few years ago this would be fine, but times have changed quickly!
The battery is also small and it doesn’t feel like you’re getting your money’s worth in that regard. Also the cheesy start-up and end session notices of ‘Hit it!’ and “lr8 vapr” might not be for everyone, though we found it kind of charming in a strange way.
In the box is a super basic kit consisting of the device itself, micro USB charger, stir tool, cleaning brush, and cotton swabs. No replacement screens, no carrying pouch, and not much else.
1200mAh is all that’s inside which is tiny compared to other units that are much smaller and pack more inside, like the Zeus Arc GT and its 3500mAh cell. Of course, price is a factor, but it doesn’t cost much more to put a better battery inside.
1200mAh will yield you only a couple of sessions before needing to top up with the dated Micro-USB cable and take more time than you’d think. The battery on the RYOT Verb vaporizer is pretty awful by any standard.
Its small and slim design does make it pretty easy to slip into and bag, pocket, or purse with ease. Looking for something that looks similar to an e-cig but isn’t it? Check out the Utillian 420 Vaporizer.
It has a low profile and is very comfortable to bring around. No complaints here on that end!
Ease of Use
The Ryot vaporizer is pretty straightforward to use – grind it up, load, and turn it on! Pretty simple and there are no complex techniques or steps required to get this thing running. Sharing with friends and strangers is pretty simple too and you won’t have a hard time using it.
Cleaning isn’t bad if you keep on top of brushing out the chamber and mouthpiece screen often. It can gunk up pretty bad still and using isopropyl alcohol on a cotton swab to scrub out the chamber can do the trick just fine. Even the Flowermate V5 Nano is much easier to clean and use in general, check that out too!
Its all-black design and slim profile make it pretty discreet. However, it puts out a pretty considerable amount of smell still and it takes a while to get through an entire bowl. If you want something with a little more discreetness in it, try looking at the DaVinci Miqro.
Most people will think it’s an e-cig and probably not even think twice anyway.
The budget dry herb vape market is strong as ever now and many under $100 herb vapes exist.
While the VERB DHB is definitely an alright unit, its poor battery life, questionable construction, and average performance hold back its true potential as a competitor.
