Don’t know about you but i’ve been seeing more and more people smoking out of what like pens all over the place in plain public view. Yes, vaping has caught on in a big way and is becoming an ever popular way to consume weed. Are you interested in getting into the vaping game, but don’t know where to start? Here’s some basic information to help you get started.
Vaping is popular because of its perceived health benefits versus smoking, its portability, its discretion (taking low-key hits in public is part of the appeal), and its efficiency. Nowadays, cannabis vaporizers are modern and stylish, and their cool image is another reason for vaping’s boosted appeal among potheads.
Types of 420 Vape Pens/ Vaporizers
Studies have been done which indicated that pot vaporizers substantially reduced many of the dangerous components found in cannabis and that vaping is a cleaner and somewhat safer way of consuming marijuana as opposed to smoking it. When vaping the substance being inhaled by the user is vapour and not smoke so coughing is less of a concern and paraphernalia like lighters, papers, and filters aren’t required either.
Basically there are 3 main types of vape pens currently available: dry weed vape pens, wax and oil vape pens, and combination vape pens. Most vaporizers can hold 1-5 grams of cut-up weed and they are built similar to coffee machines, consisting of a lower chamber, filling chamber, upper chamber, balloon, and mouthpiece.
They can range in price from $50-to-$600 and can come with a number of different options/accessories. Many vape pens allow you to adjust the temperature setting which is a good thing. A temperature setting between 280-350 degrees is a good starting point… remember, the higher the temperature, the more you are going from the ‘vaping zone’ into the ‘smoking zone’.
Dry Herb Vapes
These types of vaporizers burn dry blends of herbs. The weed should be ground before being loaded. This is the most straightforward.
Wax and Oil Vapes
These vaporizers burn weed concentrates. They emit very little odour when consumed and many options for customizing taste. However, wax vape pens may not be the most efficient and this method of vaping isn’t as cheap as using the dry herb vaping method.
Combination vaporizers give you the flexibility to vape with dry herb, oils, or waxes. Often times, an additional attachment or accessory is needed to add the oil/wax vaping capability.
Vape Pen Maintenance
When you buy a vape, make sure you know how to charge it, clean it, and understand its different components (these will require replacement over time if you want the best performance). Vapes aren’t complicated, but as with any new toy you want it to last so read the owner’s manual before you get to the fun part… you won’t regret it.
Other Variables to Consider
There are a couple of things you’ll want to take into consideration before deciding on which type of ganja vape to buy.
