From desktop vaporizers, vapes have evolved into the present-day more portable vape devices.
To vape dry herbs, you’ll need some learning, as you would with joint rolling. Whether you wish to vape CBD hemp buds or marijuana, the rules are the same.
But note that you can’t just fill up a random vape pen with buds. Some vape pens are originally designed for dry herbs – dry herb vape pens and dry herb atomizers.
Although these options may not be as effective as the standalone options, they also offer an affordable way to use your herb without ‘smoking.’
This guide leads you through how to vaporize weed and other more convenient alternatives to dose cannabis.
Before we proceed, let’s see what you may need for a successful weed vaping session.
Before you pack in your weed, ensure your vaporizer is turned off. Packing a hot herb vaporizer will not only ruin your vapor, but it may also get your fingers burnt. Besides, it’s easier to pack your content when the chamber or oven is cold.
Here are some tips for loading and using your dry herb vaporizer.
First step: ensure your device battery is well charged or plugged into a power source
Secondly, some vape devices require slightly ground herbs; others allow you use full buds. But, generally, some grinding works best for vaping weed, mainly when using conduction vaporizers.
Step 3: Load your dry flowers into the chamber or oven of your vaporizer with a weed scooper or a business card.
Step 4: pack in the flowers with your finger or a tool, working out a flat surface. While conduction vaporizers may need some firm packaging to utilize the surface area fully, too-tight packing can ruin the airflow.
Step 5: power your device, set your temperature, and puff away.
If this would be your first attempt at using a vaporizer to weed, you may need some time before it begins to flow naturally.
Note that smoke and vapor do not hit equally. Although vapor may be calmer than smoke, it can trigger bouts of coughs.
Over time, you should be able to spot the best temperature for the best vaping experience.
Here are some helpful tips
Your vaporizer may allow you have repeated sessions so long the buds haven’t gone too dark.
No better time to clean your vaporizer than immediately after your vaping session. At this time, the euphoria is still fresh, which makes it all fun.
Making this a ritual keeps your device always up and ready for the next session.
Here are quick steps to cleaning your vaporizer:
While leaving your device without cleaning for a couple of light vaping sessions may not so hurt, when left for too long, it may ruin your entire vaping experience. Besides hindering smooth vaporization, cleaning may become more complex if your device stays uncleaned for too long.
