Thankfully, optimizing your herbal vaporizer is quite easy to do and can be accomplished by being mindful of a few basic things.
First and foremost, always ensure that your dry herb is properly ground to as fine a state as possible. Vaporizers generally work poorly with large bits of cannabis, and grinding will increase the surface area to maximize vaporization and more evenly vaporize the cannabis.
Next, take consideration on how you pack your heating chamber to produce the best vapor possible. You should be aiming to cover the entire bottom surface of your vaporizer, but do not overly pack it, as this will limit airflow and will make it harder for every piece of material to be properly vaporized.
To get the best experience from your herbal vaporizer you should also consider your draw technique. This may seem somewhat trivial, but take slow and short inhales will help pull air properly through the chamber while ensuring your coils remain hot and heated.
Finally, it’s important to understand what temperature you should be using to vaporize whatever material you have in the device. Seeing as THC boils at 315°F / 157°C, this is often the minimum temperature vaporizers will function at. Sticking at this temperature is perfect for new or low-tolerance vapers, whereas 338°F / 170°C is perfect for high-tolerance vapers.
