Drip Vaping Tips for Beginners
So, you're thinking about buying a liquid vaporizer? We've talked about this before on our blog, but it's worth mentioning again that there are two primary types of personal vaporizers on the market: liquid and dry herb. Liquid vaporizers are unique in the sense that they are designed specifically for use with liquid nicotine and essential oils. Because of their unique design, liquid vaporizers require extra attention for care and use. So today we're going to reveal some helpful drip vaping tips and tricks for beginners.
What is Dripping?
Some people are confused when they hear the term "dripping." This is because liquid vaporizers may use full cartridges, or they can support the use of dripping (or both). When a vaporizer uses a full cartridge, all you have to do is remove the empty cartridge and replace it with a new one. With dripping, on the other hand, you simply place a couple drops of your desired oil onto the atomizer's bridge, wait for it to heat up, and then inhale.
Less is More
When dripping with a vaporizer, it's best to follow the "less is more" approach. In other words, begin by placing no more than two or three drips of oil onto the atomizer at a time. Exceeding this amount may saturate the atomizer to the point where it is unable to produce adequate vapor from the oil, in which case it may fail to work. To ensure a smooth and consistent vaping experience, use 2-3 drops of your desired oil.
Watch the Flavor
You can usually tell when it's time to drip more liquid onto the atomizer by watching for a change in flavor. When your vaporizer needs more oil, it may taste metallic instead of its normal flavor. This is indicative of the liquid being burned, in which case you should place 2-3 more drops on the atomizer.
Clean After Vaping
Regardless of which make/model vaporizer you own, you should get into the habit of cleaning it on a regular basis, especially if you are dripping with it. Dripping will often result in liquid seeping down into the components of the vaporizer where it's difficult to reach. Over time, buildups of liquid may restrict airflow while reducing the overall effectiveness of the vaporizer. You can promote a clean and smooth vaping experience, however, by cleaning your vaporizer after each use. This isn't necessary for dry herb vaporizers, rather you only need to clean it after dripping.
