If you are one of those who have recently upgraded to a Dry Herb Vaporizer, it might have been a bit tough to adapt to this new device. Although it is a pretty great device as compared to traditional smoking methods, there can be some minor issues that first-timers may experience.
So, here in this guide from XvapeUSA, we will help you discover the best way to use a vape pen. We will also study some tips and tricks that you can use to maintain it and keep it going for a long time. So, let’s begin!
A Comprehensive Overview of the Vaping process
When you purchase a vape pen, it is necessary to check the device manual for a brief overview of the device components. However, most of the manufacturers make the device with almost the same components. This makes the usage process and instructions also similar.
Here is the basic process of using a Dry Herb Vaporizer:
Unpack and discover the components
For first-timers, it is necessary to unpack the entire device to know about the components like drip tip, vapor tank, heating coil, fire button, battery, etc. Thsi will come handy while cleaning.
Charge the Vape Pen completely
First thing, check the charge level of the vape pen. If it is not completely charged, plug the charger and charge it to max level. Convection heating takes more power to vaporize dry herbs. So, it is recommended to charge the pen completely.
If you are traveling, do pack a spare charger or a power bank with yourself.
Grinding the Herbs
Next in the process is the grinding of herbs. This is the most crucial step as the quality of the hit that you take from the pen depends on grinding. Moreover, if you are using a dry herb vaporizer, it is expected from you to grind the herbs properly before heating them in pen.
Non-uniform dry herbs can lead to inefficient burning and consequently affecting the functioning of the vape pen. It may also lead to clogs.
Loading and Packing the Herbs
After you have ground the herbs to the finest level, it is time to load them. Make sure that you neither fill the heating chamber of the vape pen too lightly nor too much. You need to keep it at the mediocre level so as to enhance your experience.
If the pen is loaded tightly with herbs, it will affect airflow and thus making it tough to take the hit. On the other hand, the lightly loaded pen will burn the herbs quickly, consequently leading to a flavorless hit.
The Heating Begins!
When loading is done, it is time to convert the dry herbs into vapors. For this, you need to turn the vape pen ON by pressing the power button constantly for 5 times. This will turn the light ON on the power button.
Post this; you have to press and hold the power button to turn on the heating in the Vape pen.
Take the Hit!
While you are pressing & holding the power button to heat the herbs, you can take the hit. Make sure you keep pressing and holding the button for taking the hit.
If the hit does not suit you, try adjusting the temperature and tune it as per your preference. There is no perfect temperature to vape the dry herbs, but most of the frequently used herbs produce the best flavors at 374 degrees Fahrenheit.
Hence, it is best to set your pen to this figure. Other than this exact figure, it is safe to set the temperature between 320 degrees Fahrenheit and as high as 430 degrees Fahrenheit. If you have a sensitive throat set it at low and in case you want thick vapors, set it to high.
Cleaning the Vape Pen
To ensure long term use of a dry herb vaporizer, it is necessary to clean your vape pen timely and effectively. Here are some of the basic steps of it:
- Before cleaning, make sure that the heating chamber of the pen is cool. After powering down the pen, it may take some time for the heating area to cool.
- Post cooling, detach the components of the pen and remove any small pieces of dry herb, if left inside. You can use a pipe cleaner with isopropyl alcohol to closely remove any left residue in the pen.
- Now, a vape pen may also have a filter inside it that prevents the fine pieces of herbs from blocking the vapor path. To clean the clogged filter, use a small brush.
- Further to clean the heating chamber, it will be best to use a brush at first then a dry cloth. This will be enough.
- In the end, you can use the same dry cloth to clean the outer surface of the vape pen.
Dry herb vaporisers are a great investment to make till the time you know how to use them. As there are many choices out there, it can be a bit difficult to choose. But, all of them are not that difficult to use. However, it is necessary to keep some minor details in mind for using the vape pen.
