Get the Biggest Hits out of Your Vape!
1.Proper Inhalation Technique
How you vape is just as important as what you vape and the technique that will get you bigger clouds—and more intense hits—is direct lung inhalation. It’s exactly as it sounds like, you inhale the vapor directly into your lungs in one breath and then exhale.
This is an advanced technique and beginners might cough a little—or a lot—at first because it creates a more intense hit. However, once you get the hang of it, you’ll be floating through some serious cloud cover. This technique works with any type of vaporizer, but you’ll really notice the results with vape mods.
2. Get Juiced Up
This tip is for you vape modders out there. Most vape juice consists of a mix of propylene glycol (PG) and vegetable glycerin (VG). VG is what produces the big clouds, so if you want super-dense vapor, then select an e-liquid with a higher ratio of VG to PG, or one that is just pure VG.
There are a few more things you should know about VG and PG: PG based e-liquids give a harsher throat hit so they’re more satisfying to former smokers; VG based e-liquids have a sweet undertone that can affect the flavor of the e-juice; VG based e-liquids are more viscous than PG e-juice, so they can sometimes gunk up your vape. Don’t let any of that stop you from chasing those clouds though.
3. Go Sub-Ohm
Sub ohm vaping is when you use a vape tank with atomizer coils that have less than 1.0 ohm of resistance. When the resistance is that low, the coil reaches high temperatures faster, which produces vapor faster, which results in bigger clouds.
If you’re interested in trying sub ohm vaping, then you need to select a sub ohm tank and then select a battery that can handle sub ohm resistances. One caveat about sub ohm vaping is that the coils burn out faster, so they will need to be replaced more often. This means that sub ohm vaping is a little more expensive, so keep that in mind.
4. Turn up the Heat
More heat means more clouds. This is the case whether you’re using dry herb vapes, vape mods, or wax vaporizers. The heat results in faster vapor production, but it also means that the vapor tends to be harsher, and the flavor isn’t expressed as much. Higher temperature and power settings are usually for veterans rather than beginners, a theme you should be noticing by now.
5. Dry your Dry Herb
No one likes damp, sticky herb and now there is even less reason to do so. Getting your herb as dry as possible will increase the amount of vapor it produces. If you don’t think that your herbs are dry enough, you can dry them out yourself.
Aside from producing more vapor, drier herbs also produce better flavor, and they vape more efficiently. So, keep those buds dry before introducing them to your vaporizer.
6. Grind it Out
Grinding down your herb is a must for any dry herb vaporizer to function to its full potential. That’s because the vaporizer is able to heat up the herb more evenly and more efficiently, and better heating means bigger clouds. So, grab a good grinder to get the best flavor and the biggest clouds for your weed vaporizer.
Big Clouds, Big Fun
Those big clouds are a lot of fun to look at but the important thing is that you enjoy your vaping experience. So, if you’re having trouble generating some low lying fog, don’t worry about it. Just relax and have a good time, that’s what vaping is about after all.
