Tips on Packing a Vaporizer

If this is your first time owning a vaporizer, you may have some questions regarding how to pack it. If you pack it too loose, you could end up burning your herb, negating all of the positive benefits associated with vaping. On the other hand, if you pack your bud too tight, it will restrict airflow, resulting in minimal vapor production. So, what's the best way to pack a vaporizer?

Read the Owner's Manual

This may sound like common sense, but it's worth mentioning that you should first read the owner's manual that came packaged with your vaporizer. Each and every vaporizer is different; some of them use convection technology to heat herb and oil, whereas others use conduction technology; some vaporizers are also equipped with special features like LED heating controls, automatic cleaning, and more. It's important for users to familiarize themselves with their respective vaporizers.

Grind Up Your Herb

Don't make the mistake of sticking large pieces of herb into your vaporizer without first grinding them up. Ideally, herb should be ground into a fine, almost powder-like consistency. Why is this important? Well, ground herb is easier to vape since air passes through it more freely. You can still vape unground herb, but it's harder and takes higher temperatures. This is why it's recommended that you ground your herb up before placing it inside your vaporizer.

Don't Pack to Too Tight

Some users have a tendency to press down their herb inside the vaporizer, making it as tight as possible. Unfortunately, this negatively effects the quality of the vapor, making it less effective and more difficult to use. Keep your herb loose and avoid pressing down on it with too much force. Loose herb is much easier to vape, allowing for a smooth, clean vape.

Watch the Vape

Because no two vaporizers are the same, you'll need to keep a close eye on the vapor produced by your model to determine if the temperature needs adjusting. If you see smoke instead of vapor, you should lower the temperature down some. Both vapor and smoke look similar, but smoke is thicker and has a distinct taste (not a good taste). Feel free to experiment with the temperature controls on your vaporizer to find the perfect setting that works for your herb.
