The efficiency of your vaporizer is essential to your overall vaping experience. However, even if you purchase the best possible vaporizer on the market you still need to know the ins and outs of using it. When it comes to efficiency, there are a few very important tips to keep in mind to make the most out of your device. We’ve outlined a few of them for you below.

Components that Effect Efficiency of the Vaporizer

Vaporizers, like any other product, are dramatically effected by their components and how they are used. However, there are a few very important points to keep in mind when trying to get the most out of your vaporizer. These include:

  • Temperature
  • Breathing Technique
  • How long the vapor sits in the attachment/whip/balloon
  • Density of the herbs

Each of the aforementioned variables has a direct impact on the quality of the vapor inhaled. Get the most out of your vaporizer by considering our advice for each of these variables.

Black Ego C TwistTemperature of your vaporizer

Most research suggests that vaporizers work their best at around 439 degrees Fahrenheit. The typical high quality vaporizer taps out at around that temp. Some vapers get a bit antsy jumping the gun when vaping and refuse to wait until the device reaches the appropriate temperatures. Doing so not only affects the quality of the vapor inhaled, but also burns up money since the herbals are ruined after the inhalation process takes place. Consider this too, when heat is reduced to 302 degrees the quality of vapor drops by nearly half and progressively gets worse the lower the temperature goes.

Breathing Technique

How you inhale your vapor also has an impact on efficiency. Breathing deeply enhances not only the quality of each hit but also evaporates the least amount of product, thereby saving you money in the long run. Short hits where you inhale very little, have the opposite effect.

Vapor in the bag

Another excellent tip to keep in mind is patience. Vaporizers often take up to 5 minutes to completely fill with vapor, and if you stay patient the results are extremely satisfying. Remember that higher temperatures equal better vapor, so remain calm and watch your vaporizer fill up with tasty goodness.

Density of your herbs

This is often one of the most overlooked aspects of vaping. Unlike rolled paper or even glass pipes, vaporizers require dry herbs and plant material to be completely broken down prior to vaping. The reason why is quite simple.

For the vaporizer to effectively evaporate plant material, it must already be somewhat broken down. Using a grinder to thoroughly mash the product and remove stems and seed leaves an almost powdery substance that can be easily vaporized. If you want to get the most out of your device you need to put in a bit of work to make sure your herbs are easily digested by your vaporizer. Or conversely you can use oils to vape instead.

No matter what device you choose or what your budget may be, you can vape efficiently by following the aforementioned tips and tricks. The difference will be felt in your wallet and your lungs if you heed our advice.
