The way that people use marijuana is being changed by things like vape pens. Vaporizing appears to be the choice for those who want to protect their health. And in some cases, dry herbs are the ultimate choice for a better smoking experience. The act of vaporizing has changed how some individuals enjoy smoking weed. This is a more reliable and powerful way that is recommended for consuming weed medicinally and recreationally. And in addition, there are no risks to your health as in smoking a marijuana joint. For that reason, more people are vaping with dry herbs. With vape technology being improved, vaporizers are much more affordable and portable than before. Below are some simple tips for both the experienced and novice vapers. You will find out that vaping dry herbs have become easier.
Using Fresh Herbs
It is better to use dry herbs that is fresh, not necessary just harvested, but herbs that are high in quality and well cured. You should never use stale and old marijuana buds. In an ideal situation, it is better to have experience in vaping, but even the novice can learn quickly. Vaping and moisture goes hand in hand. It involves heat and compounds reaching a boiling point and forming a vapor, which the user will inhale in the same manner as smoke. For this reason, it is recommended that you use fresh herb, which has a higher concentration of moisture. Make sure before you load dry herbs into your vape pen, it is not too dry or too wet. You can actually test how much moisture is contained by touching the buds.
Using the Grinder
Once you have examined your dry herbs and established the fact that it is good for vaping, you should then begin using your grinder. By grinding dry herbs, the surface area will increase and the vaporizer’s heat will penetrate more efficiently through the marijuana plant matter, producing a tasty and thick vapor. Be sure that your marijuana buds are grounded evenly and finely. You can opt for an electric grinder or manual grinder. If you do use a pair of scissors, it will take longer to grind, but you must ensure that it comes out as close to the way it would, if you had a grinder.
When you are vaping with dry herbs, it is important that you ensure the right temperature for every vape session. Set the temperature before you use your vaporizer, no matter if you are using cannabis concentrates or dry herbs. Generally, you should go for temperatures between 180-210°C, which equates to 356-410°F. You should be aware that not all cannabinoids will vaporize at the same temperature. There are always slight variations in relation to the marijuana bud’s moisture content or even the texture of the weed that has been grinded.
Packing Tight Enough
In the same way that you smoke a pipe or bong, you would do the same packing for our vape chamber. The way you do this will have a major effect on your smoking experience. Pack your vape chamber with sufficient dry herbs that will give you a good smoke. Try not to overly pack the chamber or you might damage your vape pen and you won’t get a smooth flow from the chamber to your mouthpiece.
The Preheating Process
Vaporizers need some time to increase the temperature; pretty much like an oven does. Therefore, you should never put dry herbs into the chamber of your vape pen until it is appropriately heated. Lucky for you, the portable vaporizers being made these days will preheat very quickly in a matter of seconds. Be sure to read the instructions first since each vape pen comes with its own.
Other things to consider as it relates to vaping with dry herbs is inhaling slowly and gently, avoiding combustion, and maintaining the condition of your vape pen. Learn more about vaping with dry herbs.
