What Is Vaping and What are The Benefits?
Vaporizing refers to heating cannabis without burning it. The heat releases both THC vapor and other active ingredients.
You get just as much high from vaping as you do from smoking a joint. The upside? You skip all the harmful effects of smoking like the toxins found in bongs, pipes, and joints.
Vaporizing is an excellent way to enjoy the strain you love while taking care of your body. The benefits of vaping include:
- Faster working and easier dosage control compared to edibles
- Contains almost none of the toxins found in smoking
- More efficient as you use 10 to 30% less marijuana vaping as you do smoking
- Faint smell that allows for increased discretion
How To Vape Weed: Step-By-Step Instructions
You need to know how to vape weed using a vape pen so that you can protect your investment from unnecessary damage. Here's your need-to-know information:
1. Plug In The Vape Pen
Vape pens run on batteries. These batteries often require a few hours to reach full charge before you use them. Use the supplied charging device to refuel your batteries as often as possible so you're not bogged down by wait times.
2. Refer To The Manual
We know you'll probably skip this step but we're going to tell you to read your manual anyway. A well-designed vape pen is super easy to use but by reading the manual you can avoid panicking down the road should something go awry.
If there's one thing you must check out in your manual it's whether your vape pen functions with pre-filled disposable oil cartridges, flowers, oil, and propylene glycol mix or unmixed oil (called wax or shatter).
3. Perform A Dry Run
Once charged, turn your vape pen on without any herbs or oils for 30 to 90 seconds. This practice decreases your risk of inhaling harmful flotsam metals or compounds left over from the factory.
4. Load The Tank
How do you do this? Pre-filled cartridges attach to the battery of your vape pen. Dab shatter, wax, or any other unmixed oil in a small amount onto the atomizer or around the wick. Load mixed oils into the tank and drips onto the atomizer. Flowers sit on the atomizer or inside the heated metal chamber.
5. Start Chiefing
Your vape might turn on with a push button or heat up when you begin to inhale. A light on the pen indicates when it is on. Place the mouthpiece between your lips and inhale.
Make sure to inhale some clear air at the end of each puff. This ensures the pot reaches your lungs. Hold your hit for a few seconds.
Holding in a hit for too long makes you dizzy and your toke session unenjoyable. It impresses no one.
6. Take A Moment To Reflect
Cannabis oil is super concentrated. Make sure you know your limits to get the most out of your vape session. Take a moment to reflect, and gauge your high before hitting your vape again.
How To Vape Weed: Know Your Oils
The world of hash oil is diverse. As a result, many beginners become confused with so many choices and one vape pen.
You can't just put any oil in your atomizer and toke up. You could damage the coil, ruin your vape pen, and never get high at all.
Types of Oils
To begin, two main categories of oil exist on the market today: solvent extracts and non-solvent extracts. Do not use a non-solvent hash with a vape pen.
Think of solvent-extract oils in terms of opaque, wax oils and translucent, shatter oils.
Shatter is always translucent and sticky. It comes in colors ranging from golden yellow to dark amber with a hint of green. Wax contains a dryer consistency much like a honeycomb. You might see dark brown, white, or yellow wax.
Depending on the consistency we call wax crumble or budder.
The Right Oil For Your Vape Pen
There's no definitive answer for which type of oil is best for your vape pen. Most people pick shatter but the true winner depends on the consistency of the oils.
Your oil needs a liquid consistency to run through the wick and warm the vape pen. Shatter's becomes liquefied easier and is, therefore, a better choice. But at times you'll run into shatter that proves too hard to melt the right way.
The solution? Hash oil. Hash oil comes from multiple solvents. Some hash oil contains glycerin to make it less viscous.
Glycerin results in a sweeter taste. Glycerin is not toxic. Use it without fear and begin enjoying your vape.
