FLOWER VAPES

Herbal Vaporizers warm cannabis to a temperature below combustion in order to release the active ingredients (THC/CBD) through evaporation.

Proper Use

The optimal temperature for a vaporizer varies. THC is activated at 157°C and CBD at 180°C. A good place to start is between 190°C and 200°C. Starting at a lower temp and gradually turning it up is a great way to ensure your cannabis gets fully vaporized. Cannabis will appear dry and brown when finished.

Safe Consumption

Keep your vaporizer under 220°C to avoid combustion. The onset time for vapor is slightly longer than smoking, making it easy to consume too much. Start low and go slow.

Cleaning/Maintenance

Vaporizers are electronic devices so you should always avoid getting them wet. Clean any removable glass and metal accessories by placing them in a small container filled with Resin Remover (99% isopropyl alcohol) until covered.  Let soak, remove, rinse with fresh water, and air dry. Use a soft pipe cleaner for any hard to reach places.

When cleaning the interior oven of the device, do so carefully with soft pipe cleaners and/or cotton swabs saturated with Resin Remover. Consider holding the vape upside down while doing this, to prevent liquids from leaking inside.
