How often do you use your dry herb vaporizer? Is it just for a few days out of the month or are you using it all day every day?
If you feel like you are not getting the most out of your dry herb vaporizers it could be because you have not cleaned it out properly or are not using the most effective tools and methods when it comes to using the device.
These days, dry herb vaporizers have become the preferred way to consume marijuana, especially for those who enjoy inhaling it. This is because they’re more efficient, easy to get from physical or online stores such as MagicVaporizers, and offer a cleaner, and purer, experience that doesn’t irritate your throat and lungs like smoke can. If you are new to using them, or want to buy one and get the most out of it, here is everything you can do to have the best experience when using your dry herb vaporizers.
Make sure the herb is fresh
When it comes to smoking a joint, most of the time you want to make sure that your herb is quite dry and it doesn’t make too much of a difference if it is a little old. This is so that it can burn properly and continue burning to completion. However, when it comes to vaping with dry herb vaporizers, the process is a little different and you want to make sure that you are using weed that is fresh.
When talking about fresh weed it does not mean that the weed is straight off the plant, it just means that it hasn’t been sitting around for a long time. You also want to ensure that you are only vaping freshly ground weed as this will give you the best possible experience. Because a dry herb vaporizers, vaporises the compounds within the marijuana plant, it needs to not be completely bone dry and actually have something that can turn into vapour. When grinding your weed for your dry herb vaporizer, you should grind with an herb grinder it as finely as possible in order for the heat to reach the maximum surface area possible and get the most out of your product.
Pack the chamber properly
As mentioned previously, the way you grind your weed is crucial to the process of vaping it. Essentially by having the marijuana ground up as small as possible, you have a larger surface area to be heated and therefore get more out of it.
Once you have ground up your weed you are ready to pack it into the chamber. While it may be tempting to pack it as tightly as possible, you should refrain from doing this. Dry herb vaporizer works by heating the chamber either through a conduction method which heats up plates, or a convection method which circulates hot air. Either way, both methods need room for hot air to circulate around the product. This means that while you should still pack is reasonably full, you shouldn’t pack it so that it completely tight as this will not allow for the product to be heated and will most likely lead you to waste a lot more product.
Clean the vaporizer often
When it comes to traditional methods of consuming marijuana, such as smoking a joint, there is little to no clean up involved because a joint is a once off use and you throw it away when you are done. However, it is a little different when it comes to dry herb vaporizer.
A dry herb vaporizer is something that you will use over and over again for months or even years, depending on the quality of it. Like with any other dish or piece of cutlery in your kitchen, your dry herb vaporizers need to be cleaned every once in a while. This is not only for your health, but also to get the most out of your vape. After every use you should always brush out the excess debris from your session, and then after every few uses you should give it a deep clean and make sure that every component is properly cleaned.
Use the right temperature
Last but not least, one of the biggest benefits of using dry herb vaporizers is that you can control the temperature at which you vape. This is a great way to get the best experience possible and customize your high. With a higher temperature you have the ability to vaporise more compounds within the plant. Choosing the right temperature is all down to personal preference and there is no right temperature for everybody.
