How are Herbal Vape Pens Used?

If you have never used a vape pen, this article will walk you through step-by-step instructions on using a brand-new tool. 

Charge your vaporizer first. As soon as you take it out of the box you will want to allow it to charge. The initial charge may take a couple of hours to complete. Now is a good time to go over the owner’s manual and familiarize yourself with how the pen works. 

Do a Dry Run. This is typically done before the first vape in order to burn off any chemicals that may remain from the manufacturing process. Most people do this by going outdoors and turning it to the highest setting allowing it to burn 1 – 2 minutes. This does not guarantee that you will not inhale any chemicals or metals, but it will greatly reduce the risk. 

Load the cartridge. How you do this will depend on the type of material you are smoking and the type of pen you are using. Some varieties take pre-filled tanks, while others may be added directly to the atomizer. Oils are usually held in a tank that drip onto the atomizer. 

Time to vape. Depending on the model of your vape pen, you may have to manually turn it on, or it may automatically heat up when you put it to your mouth and inhale. For those that must be turned on by a power button, they generally have to be clicked a certain number of times for it to power on and off. This is a precaution to prevent product waste and accidental usage.

The vaporizer should never burn your product to ash. You do not have to purchase a high-end pen, but finding one that has temperature is control can be beneficial. Wickless atomizers are preferential because fiberglass wicks can be dangerous when inhaled. 

Understanding your Vape Battery. 

All herbal vaporizer pens for sale are battery powered and most come with a USB charger. For longer battery life, you should allow your unit’s charge to drain almost completely before recharging. Many models will actually shut themselves off when the volts drop low enough. Only leave plugged up as long as needed to achieve a full charge, overdoing it can damage your battery.

Each model of vape pen has its own mAh, which refers to how many inhales can be made before it has to be recharged. This number can range drastically from anywhere around 100 to 1,000 puffs. Once you familiarize yourself with your personal pen you will be able to estimate when you will need to place it on the charger to avoid down time.

It is important to always be aware of the appearance of your battery. If there is a hole in your connection end, it is possible that your product could leak into the battery area. Keeping your battery clean is necessary to prevent malfunction. 

Temperature is Important.

To achieve the most optimal high, the thermal temperature conditions must be perfect. Most of your purify and flavor will be found in the vapor clouds, so temperature control is as important as the ingredients you are using. 

Understanding how to properly use your vaporizer pen is imperative to get the best high possible.
