Vaporizers heat the plant material to produce vapor, which then rises and is inhaled through a mouthpiece. Hot air releases THC, CBD, and other cannabinoids into the vapor, enabling you to get the desired effect.
If you own a regular vape pen already, unfortunately, you can’t use it to vape weed. You’ll need a dedicated device developed for cannabis.
However, there are plenty of these: desktop vaporizers, portable vape devices, rechargeable or disposable vape pens, dry herb vaporizers, etc. These types of vaporizers have to be used differently, but it’s not complicated to get the hang of it.
For example, stationary vaporizers have to be placed on a flat surface and require a power outlet. You can inhale the vapor directly from it through a hose, or indirectly from an inflatable balloon.
Dry herb vaporization requires a portable or a desktop vaporizer, some dried cannabis flowers, a grinder and some accessories for cleaning the device or stirring up the product.
Vape pens are the easiest to use – make sure the battery is full, fill up your device with your preferred substance and turn it on.
Pack It Up
In case of medical or recreational consumption of cannabis, you’ll most likely use different products.
If you want to get high and experience that euphoric feeling, you’ll most likely want to opt for THC dominant products. For a more mild effect, you may like to choose CBD. In the case of vape pens, you’ll need to purchase dedicated THC oils or CBD vape juice.
However, when it comes to dry herb vaporizers, dried cannabis will be your go-to product. Make sure you use good quality herbs for your optimal vaping experience. Before you pack your vape’s chamber, don’t forget to grind your dry cannabis buds.
Grinding is essential in order to have the best vaping experience and get the most out of your dried herb.
You can do it by hand or with a grinder. However, using a grinder is much better – it’s a fast and clean method that guarantees you’ll get consistent, fine ground herbs. As a result, your herbs will be heated more evenly and your hits will be more satisfying.
Grinding cannabis with your hands is messy, pieces are inconsistent and so will be your vaping experience.
Enjoy the Moment
Inhaling cannabis from a vaporizer can take some getting used to, especially if you’ve never tried it before.
Don’t worry if you cough – your lungs feel vapor different than smoke, for instance: it’s much cooler.
First, wait for your vape to heat up (then wait from 30 seconds to 1 minute) before taking the first puff. Start slowly and gently, then allow the vapor to fill your lungs and exhale.
If you’re using a vape pen, wait from 5 to 10 minutes for the e-liquid to absorb to gauge the effects. You can inhale and exhale normally, there’s no need to hold it in.
Similar to a regular joint, most vaporizers are session vapes. However, you can turn them on for another round when they cut off at some point.
In the case of dry herb vaporizers, you can keep reusing cannabis that’s already packed in as long as it doesn’t get too dark.
Cleaning and Sanitation
Don’t forget to clean your device after each use. You can do it right after your session and make it a part of your vaping routine to make sure your device is ready to use whenever you feel like it.
It’s important to clean your vaporizer to prevent uneven vaporization resulting from built-up residue. A dirty vaporizer simply won’t perform well.
If you’re interested in trying out cannabis products, make sure you test out different methods to see which one you enjoy the most. The range of legal ways is growing day by day and if you enjoy the sensation, you’ll definitely find a method that works best for you.
Whether you want to use it for medical or recreational purposes, make sure you purchase quality products – you can consider growing your own cannabis as well.
