There is nothing worse than when the vaporizer you bought and invested in isn’t living up to its factory standards. The vapor quality emitting from the vaporizer is weak, tasteless and irritating. There can be a couple reasons why you’re getting bad results from your vaporizer and it can be from some simple mistakes you’re making. So, in this case – it is you, not me.
We want to ensure you get the best results from whatever vaporizer you get your hands on. It doesn’t matter what vaporizer you use; all vaporizers should have a high standard of vapor quality regardless of make or brand.

Aside from the actual unit itself, the biggest performance influencing factor is your herb. Different dry herbs and batches can yield very different results. We are aware that in relation to your material these are elements that are completely out of your control. But there are some things that you certainly can.
Material moisture is a big component. Some believe the drier the better but that is not entirely true. Don’t get us wrong, it is always better to be on the drier side of the scale but if your substance becomes too dry, it can have detrimental effects to the potency. Finding a sweet balance between dry and moist is key!
Grind consistency can have a major effect on vapor production. Most vapes call for finely ground herb to allow enough surface area, so heat can flow through the herbs evenly and produce some beautiful vapor. A good grinder is key.
Temperature is always a topic of argument when it comes to vaporizers and rightly so; most vaporizers nowadays give you complete control over the heating components making it somewhat difficult on choosing what temperature to use. Particularly if you’re swapping between different herb types. The best way to figure out what temp you like is to experiment. Start off low and work your way up in 5-degree increments until you find one that works for you and your dry herb material!
As vaporizer units advance and change so do their heat up times. Heat-up times are becoming quicker. If your unit instructions say that your vaporizer will be fully-heated in 30 seconds; throw another 10 or so seconds on that to ensure the device is properly heated.
A huge issue that can prevent vapor production is how you inhale. Many people believe that short, fast and quick inhales are the best way, which is incorrect in a vaping context. Long, slow and deep inhales are the way to go.
The biggest issue of all is maintenance. You must clean your vaporizer. Remember – a clean vape is a happy vape! Cleaning briefly after every session is recommended but not mandatory but do clean frequently! We recommend cleaning your vape once a week, depending on how often you use it. Cleaning your vaporizer is paramount to a high-preforming unit.
