More and more people are coming to realize that there is more than one way to use cannabis. These days, there are a variety of consumption methods available—including all the traditional bongs, bowls, joints, blunts, and so on—as well as some of the newer methods like cooking oils, tinctures, topicals, edibles and vaporizers. For those that aren’t yet in on the vaporizer movement, check out a few tips that’ll get you in the door on one of the latest methods to get high, and make sure that you aren’t making (too many) rookie mistakes.
THE RIGHT PRICE TO PAY FOR A VAPORIZER
For those wondering how much you should pay for a vaporizer, let’s talk facts.There is a lot to take into consideration when buying a vaporizer. First, there are so many great manufacturers out there and just like there are many manufacturers, there are also many great models.
To share or not to share? Do you vape alone? Are you the conserving type? Convection or conduction? Quartz or ceramic? These are all good questions to keep in mind when shopping for the right vape. Try to pick a vape that bests satisfies YOUR needs as a user. Prices can range anywhere from $5 to $500. Try not to buy a knockoff or extremely cheap vaporizer to avoid low-quality vapor or malfunctions.
IS THERE A RIGHT TEMPERATURE TO VAPE MARIJUANA?
Weed comes in many shapes and forms. It can have different aromas, flavors, potencies and so on. Just like there are differences among the flower species, there are differences in vaporizing weed at different temperatures. It is advised not to vape marijuana above 235°C (455°F), you can consider this too hot! The amount of chemicals you take in can go all the way from 20% to the high 70s.
For those concerned about health or just wanting to experience a more alert high, make sure to vape your weed at lower temperatures (330°F-380°F). Now, if you wanna get blown away, go for something around 420°F and no it is not a joke. It is argued that most of the extraction of the good stuff will happen somewhere along the lines of 410°F to 450°F.
HOLDING YOUR HITS WHEN VAPING
Most marijuana users have probably heard the phrases: “The longer you hold your hit, the higher you get” or “the more you cough, the higher you get”. At some point; unless you have done research, holding your hits for a long time tends to become second nature. Many studies have taken place that prove that almost all of the THC percentage is absorbed in the first few seconds of taking a hit.
The only reason for feeling higher is the deprivation of oxygen to the brain when holding in smoke. Now does it work the same with vapor? After researching the topic, my conclusion is that it is a subjective matter. Some argue that yes you do get higher while others feel like it should be held to the same standard as smoke. I would recommend to hold your hit for just a few seconds and not let it get to the point where it becomes uncomfortable or unhealthy.
AVB/ABV CAN BE USED FOR EDIBLES
Do you like to save money? Wouldn’t you like to get high out of your supply not once, but twice? If you haven’t switched from combustion to vaping yet because of all the obvious reasons, you’re about to have one more reason to. Ever wondered when staring at your AVB or ABV (already vaped bud/already been vaped) from your herb vape if it still can be useful? The truth is that if vaped correctly, weed should look brown, not black.
Someone out there has probably tried to smoke it afterward and realized that it tastes terrible. This is due to the low to zero concentration of THC and other cannabinoids left. Now, there are other delivery methods for consuming weed. One of them is cooking it and yes you can use ABV to make your edible of choice. So the next time you vape, make sure to start saving it until you have about a half to an ounce of bud depending on your desired potency and quantity. Enjoy those special brownies!
SECRETS TO CLEANING YOUR VAPE GEAR
Having a clean vape pen or vaporizer will definitely keep things running smoothly and improves the taste and overall experience. For the most part, I think it is safe to say that the majority of people are not so much fond of cleaning. Whether it is washing your car, cleaning the driveway, organizing your room; or in our case, cleaning your vaping utensils. First things first, get to know your vape! It is extremely crucial that you follow any specific instructions pertaining to your device.Please read the user manual! Having said that, here are some tips to make your life easier:
- Unassembling parts is essential when cleaning your vaporizer or vape pen. Make sure you give care and attention to each specific part.
- Warm water, alcohol, lemon juice and salt are great for cleaning resin.
- Q-tips, small brushes, soft cloth are tools that can aid in the process of cleaning.
- Ultrasonic cleaners are also great for cleaning vape pens
