From Joint to Vape: Here are the Common Mistakes to Avoid for Beginners

Electronic Cigarette

Are you thinking of switching from blunt to vape? Hold on there. It is not as easy as rolling and lighting up a blunt. Some hard-core vapers will tell you that it is an art form. You need to go slow and internalize the basic rules so that you can experiment with all the different flavors and hit later on.

But first, what is vaping?

When you use a vaporizer, that process is called vaping.

Vaping is also used for e-cigarettes. The study from the Massachusetts General Hospital concluded that switching to e-cigarettes can help cigarette smokers quit smoking.

Las Vegas does not make a distinction between vaping and smoking cigarettes. As such, you are not allowed to use your vaporizer in public areas or places of employment. However, you can be permitted to vape in some casinos provided that you stay in places where children are prohibited. You can also vape in private establishments, as long as it is allowed by the owner.

A typical vaporizer has the following main components:

  1. The device itself, which can be a tube, pen, or box
  2. The atomizer
  3. The battery
  4. Coil or coils
  5. Wicks
  6. E-liquid or juice

When you are looking to switch from a blunt to a vaporizer, here are the common mistakes you should avoid:

  1. Finding the right temperature

It is a common mistake for beginners to burn off their herb because they want a quicker hit. However, there is a science to getting the right temperature to experience the right effect you want.

For instance:

  • You stay at 160-180°C if you want cleaner flavor from your herbs.
  • You go up to 180-200°C if you need an immediate high but still retain the character of the weed.
  • You crank the device up to 200-230°C for some mind-blowing effects. Make sure also that you are not doing anything for the rest of the day.

However, the recommended temperature is somewhere between 180°C to 200°C since you maximize the effects of terpenes and cannabinoids at this level. 

  1. Buying a cheap vaporizer kit

If you are going to switch to vaping, you might as well invest in a high-quality device. The cheap product would not deliver the experience that you deserve. If you think about it, the device is your introduction to the world of vaping. You might swear off vaping altogether if you have a negative experience because of the mediocre quality of the tube or pen. You want to look for a heat-resistant container, auto shut, USB charging capability, and smart control settings, particularly for the temperature.

  1. Improperly grinding the herb

The quality of the vaping experience will depend on your ability to ground the herb. You need a high-quality grinder for the task. You also need to root the herb into a consistently excellent quality. For instance, the stems and seeds in the buds will result in inconsistent heating. Also, make sure you avoid throwing the stems into the grinder except, of course, you want a headache later on.

If you are new to the world of vaping, you can purchase starter kits, which already contain all the components that you need. You start with low-output devices with internal batteries. For convenience and safety, you can pair your device with a Clearomizer, which features a resistance up more than 1.0 ohms.
