How to use a vaporizer? 💨

Vaporizers are becoming increasingly popular among people who prefer alternative methods of consuming substances such as herbs or oils. Their simplicity and efficiency are making them a more frequent choice for many users. However, to fully enjoy the benefits of using a vaporizer and ensure safety during its use, it is essential to understand the proper techniques. Below, we will discuss the key steps and tips for using a vaporizer to ensure maximum effectiveness and comfort during inhalation sessions.

Electronic and butane vaporizers – what’s the difference?

How you use a vaporizer depends on many factors, including one key aspect – whether it is an electronic or butane vaporizer. These are two different types of devices.

Butane vaporizers are a great choice, though many beginners tend to choose the electronic version. Butane vaporizers, sometimes also called manual, do not contain any electronic parts. Here, an external heat source is used to heat the herb. This is usually a special torch lighter or butane burner.

The technique of using the VapCap M 2021 vaporizer is relatively simple – after placing the chosen herb in the chamber, you should start gently heating the chamber’s cap and rotating the device between your fingers. This way, the herb will be heated evenly. Initially, this technique may seem difficult, but after a few times, it is easy to master.

On the other hand, convective butane vaporizers are much more complicated to operate – they require directing the flame towards the air inlet nozzle, through which hot air is drawn into the interior of the vaporizer. In this case, special attention should be paid to the distance of the flame tip from the air inlet nozzle, the size of the flame, and the pace of inhalation – all these factors affect the final temperature to which the herbs will be heated. This requires significantly more skill and is not recommended for beginners. Using butane vaporizers is more difficult but can be more effective and enjoyable. It does not require access to electrical energy and remembering to charge the battery.

As for electronic vaporizers, the matter is much simpler, although individual devices differ in terms of the complexity of operation. Manufacturers of such devices strive to meet the expectations of users who care primarily about the comfort of inhalation. Therefore, you can find many devices on the market where you just need to press a button, and after a few or a dozen seconds, you can start inhaling. Even more complex electronic models are relatively easy to master in terms of usage technique.

What is more convenient to use – electronic or butane vaporizers?

It depends. Butane devices do not require charging or battery replacement, so there is no risk that they will run out in the middle of the day or during a hike. There is also no risk of malfunction, due to the lack of electronic components. And most importantly – skillful vaporization using a butane device is exceptionally efficient.

Meanwhile, electronic vaporizers are more comfortable and simpler to use because they do all the work for us. It’s a good option for those who do not mind the need for charging and who simply want to press a button, select the temperature, and enjoy the aroma of their favorite herbs.

For homebodies, there are also desktop electronic vaporizers – that is, connected to an outlet. For example, the legendary Volcano vaporizer is characterized by masterful, repeatable efficiency in vapor production and even delivery of active ingredients.

How to use butane vaporizers? 🔥

First and foremost, you need to choose a good lighter. It cannot be a lighter bought from any random store for one or two euros.

For proper inhalation, it is necessary to purchase a decent torch lighter. It can also be a mini butane burner.

You also need gas to refill the lighter for a correctly conducted vaporization. It is best to get gas from a known source; it must be fully purified, so it does not pose any threat to the respiratory system, which is important for some convection butane vaporizers like the Sticky Brick. Once you have a butane vaporizer and a torch lighter or burner, you can proceed to inhalation.

At the beginning, load the burner with butane so that you don’t have to do it during inhalation. Then, fill the chamber with your chosen herb. Remember to grind it finely before. When the herb is in the chamber, everything depends on the model of the device you have – if it is a VapCap, start gently heating the chamber, simultaneously rotating the device between your fingers and wait for a click, which the cap of the chamber will make upon reaching the appropriate temperature.

If you are using a convection model (e.g., Dreamwood Punch Mini Vaporizer), adjust the flame of the burner so that it is no more than 2 cm and start slowly bringing it close to the air inlet nozzle, simultaneously taking slow and steady draws through the mouthpiece.

Do not hold the flame too close, but also not too far away, find the right balance – you will know it by the fact that during your draw, the vaporizer will start producing tasty vapor. Then, you should increase the pace of inhalation – otherwise, you may overheat the herb in the chamber and burn it. You need to find your golden mean when it comes to the pace of inhalation and the distance of the flame from the air inlet.

Done! You can now enjoy vaporization. After finishing the inhalation, you can also clean the most important parts of the vaporizer to keep it clean before you proceed to the next inhalation.

How to use electronic vaporizers? 🔋

Here, the matter is much simpler. First, familiarize yourself thoroughly with the manufacturer’s recommendations. Read the user manual, and you will learn how to use the vaporizer you bought. It may turn out that your vaporizer has a dedicated mobile app.

Do not hesitate to download it, as it often enables you to improve the inhalation experience, for example, by better adjusting the settings to your tastes or unlocking additional inhalation modes.

It’s also worth watching online reviews of the model you have chosen – vaporizer reviewers often give detailed tips on operating specific models.

When you are ready to start inhalation, fill the chamber with herbs. If you have a conduction vaporizer, the herb should be very finely ground to maximize the surface area of its contact with the walls of the heating chamber.

If, however, you have chosen a convection device, where a stream of hot air heats the herb, it cannot be ground too finely – this may cause the vaporizer to clog when tiny herb particles are swept up by the air and settle on the stainless steel filter, which is usually located before the mouthpiece.

You can turn on the device once you have placed the herb in the chamber. Then, select the optimal vaporization temperature. When the device reaches the set temperature, you can start inhalation.

For most electronic models, the best effects are achieved with slow, long draws – this way, you will get the most vapor. Remember always to turn off the vaporizer after inhalation and to clean it regularly. Don’t forget about charging it either.

A good idea is to purchase a device with a replaceable battery or one that can be charged via a micro-USB port – this allows you to charge it using a power bank. This ensures that your vaporizer will be ready to use whenever you feel like inhaling.

😶‍🌫️ Smoking from a vaporizer – what must you remember?

You now know how to use a vaporizer. But that’s not all. As a beginner, you must remember a few important issues – not only for the quality of inhalation but also to ensure your vaporizer can serve you for many years.

Vaporizing herbs should be treated like an art – it all starts with choosing the right equipment and ends with skillfully manipulating the temperature to achieve the optimal taste and effect.

✔️ Regular cleaning of the vaporizer

Regular cleaning of the vaporizer is essential if you want it to serve you for many years. Neglecting cleaning can make the aroma during inhalation no longer pleasant, and in some cases, it may even lead to some damage.

After each use, it’s enough to quickly remove any herb residues from the device, and from time to time, it’s necessary to disassemble it and thoroughly clean each part in isopropyl alcohol (e.g., with VapeCleaner). Also, remember about hygiene reasons. If you use the vaporizer many times during the day, you can disinfect the mouthpiece and even the entire device to get rid of any bacteria.

✔️ Burn-off matters

This is a very important step that you must perform before the first use of the vaporizer. First, clean the device with isopropyl alcohol. Then, turn it on, set the maximum temperature, and leave it for one full cycle – until it automatically turns off, which, in most models, happens after a few minutes. If the device still emits the smell of new electronics – turn it on again and repeat the “burn-off”. This way, you will remove remnants from the manufacturing process (e.g., traces of factory lubricants) and improve the taste of the vapor from the first inhalation.

Those who skip this step may experience an unpleasant smell and taste during the first inhalation, and the vapor may also be more irritating. Therefore, it’s worth doing a burn-off to enjoy the excellent aroma of herbs right from the start.

✔️ Inhalation technique

The draw during inhalation should be slow. Take gentle, long breaths that can last even 10 or 15 seconds. Perhaps the first cloud will not be very visible, but the following ones – certainly will. Too rapid draws in most cases will lead to excessive cooling of the heater and modest vapor production. After all, the main goal is to relax!

✔️ Selecting the optimal vaporization temperature

Another important issue is selecting the temperature. It should be adjusted to the specific herb. If you choose delicate herbs for vaporization, the temperature must be lower; if concentrates – relatively high. In any case, it’s worth adhering to the manufacturer’s recommendations or looking for information online. Too high a vaporization temperature can destroy the active ingredients in the herb and make the aroma not very pleasant, while too low a temperature will not allow for extracting the compounds you’re interested in from the herb.

How to use a vaporizer – step by step 🚶‍♀️

  1. For electronic vaporizers – charge the device to ensure it won’t run out during inhalation.
  2. For butane vaporizers – load the lighter with butane before starting vaporization.
  3. Fill the chamber with your chosen herbs – remember to grind them well, depending on the type of vaporizer.
  4. Turn on the vaporizer or start heating it with a lighter.
  5. Wait for it to heat up, and the herbs to reach the optimal temperature for inhalation.
  6. Inhale very slowly.
  7. Gradually increase the temperature.
  8. After finishing the inhalation, turn off and clean the vaporizer.
