Vaporizing Like A Boss
Vaporizing seems like a breeze, right? You just load up that bad boy and you’re good to go. Well, not exactly. You have to keep in mind that vaporizing is a fairly new trend among the cannabis community. It requires you to put some extra effort into research and some extra care into your vaporizer. Let’s face it; a vaporizer is a delicate device. Sometimes, when I hold my portable vaporizer, I have feeling its made out of pure glass and can be easily shattered if I drop it by accident. Then you have to make sure you maintain your vaporizer at all times, otherwise you will shorten its lifespan significantly. The list goes on and on. However, for the purposes of vaporizing like a boss, there are a couple of things you should keep in mind.
Find Quality Bud
This one seems obvious, right? However, you would be surprised how many people load up their vaporizers with terrible looking bud that doesn’t even resemble marijuana. It’s usually quite damp, not well grinded and overstuffed. Don’t go down that road and then complain how your vaporizer is not working properly. The best thing to do would be to get a generic strain (i.e. White Widow) that has some fluffy buds, grind it to a fine mash and fill your vaporizer just right, without overstuffing it.
Maintain Your Vaporizer
We truly can’t stress enough the importance of buying a proper vaporizer. Additionally, we can’t even stress the importance of maintaining one. This is something most vaporizing users don’t really accept at first. By maintaining your vaporizer at all times, you significantly prolong its lifespan and its inner workings. I mean, come on, it’s not like you have to clean the house every time you vaporize herbs. All you need is a little brush, some replaceable stainless steel screens and you will be vaping for quite some time using that very same vaporizer.
Don’t Be Disappointed
A lot of people seem to be disappointed when they first vaporizer their herbs. There are several reasons for this but the most obvious one is that they can’t handle their vaporizers properly. You definitely get better at it the more you do it. At the office, some of our interns were quite disappointed with some of the new vaporizer releases only to change their mind in a weeks time, hailing it as the next best thing. To truly efficiently handle your vaporizers, you do have to pay attention to detail and work on your vaping skills. Then again, its not rocket science either so it shouldn’t take your more than a couple of days to get the hang of it.
Eliminate Tobacco Completely
It is unbelievable that we have to stress this but there have been several cases where people load up their herbs with tobacco, which is completely unnecessary. There is absolutely no reason for tobacco to be present in your vaporizer because it will not make you high but will instead make it more difficult to vaporize your herbs efficiently. There are plenty of e-cigs out there, no need to turn a portable vaporizer into a tobacco testing device.
