How to More Vapor from Your Vape Pen
You can use the following tips to get the best vapor production from a vape mod even if it is less expensive, true portable vape and is high-end.
1 – Dry Your Herbs
There is a reason why the best vape pens are called “dry herb vaporizers”. Make sure that your herbs are completely dry before you start vaping. Vapor production increases if the herbs are completely dry.
Buy herbs, which have been cured and dried properly.
What if you don’t find herbs that are completely dry?
Use the following steps to dry your herbs completely.
There are shortcuts and methods that you can use when drying your herbs. Also check out our vape mod post for more. If you want your herbs to retain smoothness, aroma and flavor, and potency, then take your time to properly dry your herbs.
Perform the following steps for a few hours, overnight and/or 1 to 2 days. However, it depends on how wet the herbs are.
(i) Glass Jar Method
Place the herbs inside a glass jar without a lid. Place a tissue below the herbs and on top of the herbs. The glass jar and the tissues prevent molds from forming because the herbs are still wet.
(ii) Paper or Plastic?
Use both. Place your herbs in a brown paper bag for about 6 to 8 hours. Remove the herbs from the paper bag and then place the herbs in a plastic bag for about 5 to 7 hours. Alternate between the two bags as you lessen the time the herbs spend in each bag. Repeat doing this until the herbs are completely dried.
(iii) Rice Method
Rice is known to absorb moisture. The good thing is that it can also dry your herbs. Put some rice in a container and then place the wet herbs in the container. Leave the herbs in the container until all the moisture has been absorbed. Remove any remaining rice before using the herbs.
(iv) Oven Method
This is the fastest way of drying herbs, but it is not highly recommended. Use it when you want to dry your herbs quickly.
Place the herbs on a cookie sheet and tray. Then place it in your oven at between 100 and 150 degrees Fahrenheit, but not higher than this because the herbs may lose potency if the temperature is higher than 150 Fahrenheit.
Let the herbs heat for around 10 minutes before removing them. If your herbs didn’t dry completely, then turn the herbs over and repeat again for around 10 minutes.
2 – Grind Your Herbs
Herbs, which are grounded, transfer heat between them more effectively and efficiently. This makes it easier for the herbs and tobacco to get heated quickly. Therefore, the herbs will produce thick clouds of vapor.
It is easy to grind the herbs. You can use a sharp tool or an appliance that is in your kitchen. The best thing you can do is to find a nice herb grinder.
3 – Pack Tight
This may sound too confusing at first. The first thing you should know is that vapor comes from the herbs. You may think that the more herbs you pack, your vape mod or vape pen will produce more vapor.
