As time passes, the cannabis market evolves. The cannabis industry is always introducing new ways for smokers to improve their experience. In recent years, vaping as a cannabis consumption method has grown increasingly popular. When trying out anything new, there’s going to be some confusion at first. Here at Valley Pure, we want to make sure your vaping experience is the best it can be. In this guide, we’ll answer all of your burning questions and help you get started on your vaping adventure.
The Benefits Of Vaping Cannabis
We’re used to smoking cannabis, so what makes vaping any different? Even though you’re still inhaling it, vaporization and combustion have many differences. When you burn anything, it combusts, sparking all of the plant’s raw materials and producing the smoke that you inhale. Vaporization is the process of converting a liquid to a gas. Smoking anything can potentially produce tar and other carcinogens. Vaping, on the other hand, does not combust anything or contain any raw material. As a result, many scientists believe that vaping is a healthier way to consume cannabis.
Vaping cannabis is also a lot more discreet. Extracts have a much more subdued scent than flower. The smell is barely noticeable and dissipates quickly. There are also many inconspicuous, pocket-sized vape pens available. This way, you can simply store it in your coat or purse without having to lug around a bulky, odorous glass piece.
And, of course, there is the obvious reason: it may be more effective. When compared to smoking cannabis, vaporization saves a large amount of THC while providing significantly more to the consumer. You may often get a better effect with fewer tokes and use less product in the long term. Dabbing is a great example of a vaporization method that can be highly potent.
What You Will Need
Now that we’ve established why vaping is so wonderful, you’re probably wondering how to get started. There are several different techniques for vaping cannabis. Each type differs in terms of delivery devices, characteristics, and even potency level. Dry herb vaping, extract vaping, and dabbing are the three most common methods of vaping cannabis.
When gathering all of the necessary equipment, you’ll need to determine what vaping method you plan to use so that you can pick up the correct supplies. If you want to vaporize your cannabis buds, you’ll need to get a vaporizer designed particularly for dry herb. If you want a potentially stronger high, you may be interested in picking up a rig and a torch so you can try dabbing some extracts. Ultimately, it all depends on what you’re looking for.
There is no right or wrong way to vape, but there is one approach that clearly tops the others in terms of popularity. By far the most common technique for individuals to vape cannabis is by using convenient, small vape pens. Unless it’s a proprietary device like The Dart from ABX, these devices are typically compatible with all prefilled cartridges with a 510 thread. The Dart, for example, can only be used with certain pods from their brand. Vape pens also emit very little odor, making them an attractive option for those who need to medicate in privacy.
If you’re using a 510 thread battery or a proprietary device like The Dart from ABX, you want to take lower temperature hits for maximum flavor. If you’re using a 510 thread battery with a variable heat setting, use the lowest setting if you want to preserve oil and get flavorful hits. The goal is to rip your pen in 3-second intervals, never allowing the device to heat up too much. If you burn your oil, it ruins the flavor! Also, be careful with how many times in a row you hit your vape pen, you don’t want to get too high on accident. If you’re just starting out, take it slow, and find your perfect dosage.
