In recent years, dry herb vaporizers have become indispensable accessories for consumers of therapeutic plants. Indeed, thanks to technological advances, vaporizers are today more and more portable and affordable. We’ve written this article to help you use your favorite vaporizer and make the most of its capabilities.
1 – Use fresh grass:
The quality of the vaporizer plays a big role, but your experience depends mostly on the quality of your herb. The principle of vaporization (explained on the home page of our site) consists in heating the plant to transform the humidity of this one into vapor, by carrying the active substances at the same time.
You must have understood it, it is better to use a grass still wet rather than a grass too dry in order to make the most of the vaporization.
There must therefore be a balance between a grass that is too dry or too wet. To ensure the freshness of your grass, the branches should be brittle, but the grass should not turn into powder when you handle it between your fingers.
2 – Grind your herb well and do not compact it too much
Once you are sure that your grass is fresh enough to be used, it is advisable to crumble it as much as possible. Indeed, grind your herb allows the heat to be better distributed and to better penetrate your favorite grass. You can use scissors, but we strongly recommend the use of a grinder: it will guarantee you a uniform crumbling and a good quality.
Once your herb crumbles, you will fill the weed vaporizer chamber with it. Make sure you don’t pack it too hard! Otherwise, the heat will not be evenly distributed in the room and you may waste grass unnecessarily. It is therefore advisable to pack slightly, but without insisting too much.
3 – Monitor temperature to avoid combustion
The heating temperature is the most important element to make the most of your favorite vaporizer. With experience, you will find yourself the ideal temperature for your vaporizer. Here are some tips to get started.
Generally, the temperature should be between 180°C and 220°C. Never exceed 220°C, otherwise combustion may occur. Here are some optimal temperatures for the vaporization of certain molecules, in order to choose your temperature according to your desires:
THC 157 °C/315 °F
CBD 180 °C/356 °F
It should also be added that the heating temperature has a major influence on the effects felt. Lower temperatures will tend to give you higher, more euphoric effects. On the other hand, a high temperature leads to stonier effects and a more intense feeling of relaxation.
