Every vaporizer out there has special quirks and qualities. Today we are going to look at some general tips you can take to ensure that you have an optimal vaporizing experience. This includes how to set up your unit, how to prepare your botanical and even what to do when you are done with your botanical. Let’s help you get a better understanding on how to improve your vaporizing experience.

5 things to know before vaporizer

Vaporizer Unboxing and Sterilizing

1. Unboxing and Sterilizing

When you receive your vaporizer, you want to unbox it properly. Take everything out of the box and make sure all parts and accessories are accounted for by looking at any accompanying documentation and inserts. Make sure that none of them are damaged. Before you begin vaporizing, let the unit run for about twenty minutes. This way your unit should heat off any residue or chemicals from the manufacturing process. Don’t apply any sort of cleaning liquid to the working parts of the vaporizer. You can clean some glass components with rubbing alcohol but make sure to check the manual for warnings and safety precautions.

Vaporizing Temperature Control

2. Temperature Control

Vaporizing heats up your botanical at a temperature that produces vapor. It doesn’t produce smoke or flame so setting the right temperature is key. Keep in mind that higher temperature isn’t necessarily better. You first need to consider what type of vapor you want. If you want thinner and less harsh vapor, first set your unit temperature to 190 degrees Celsius. Let it heat up for a few minutes and take your draws. As it gets thinner, raise the temperature 10 degrees at a time. You will max out at around 235 degrees Celsius. If you want really thick vapor and don’t want to mess around with your settings, you can just set your unit to 235 degrees and vaporize until you aren’t getting any more vapor out of your botanical. Get a feel for how your vaporizer works when deciding on your temperature. You also want to preheat before taking any draws. This is key in good vaporizing experiences.

Vaporizing Type of Grind

3. Type of Grind

You want to make sure that you grind your botanical correctly before vaporizing. You will get the best vaporizing experience by having good surface area exposure. You don’t want your grind to be too coarse as that will prevent heat from fully penetrating the botanical. You also don’t want to grind your botanical too finely as that will prevent heat from moving around your botanical easily. In order to get the perfect grind, it is recommended that you use a grinder that is specifically designed for vaporizers. You can also sprinkle botanical dust on top of your blend before vaporizing for an extra kick. A great way to collect your dust over time is to use the ZEUS Temple™ de-humidor. It is also perfect for storing and conditioning your botanical when not in use.

Vaporizing type of draw

4. Type of Draw

Now that your vaporizer is heated up, you can take your draws. Everybody has their own way that they draw. Another consideration to keep in mind is that every unit will have their own best practices. In general, you tend to want to take long and steady draws. Trying to take shallow and fast draws will not give you a good vaporizing experience.

5. Storage and Other Uses

When you finish up vaporizing, you can do a few things with your botanical. You can usually tell if your botanical is finished by the color. If it is a golden brown color and produces no more vapor, it’s finished. You can use this finished material in various recipes or you can dispose of it as garbage or fertilizer. If it isn’t finished, you can store it in the unit overnight, or in a proper airtight container. You also will want to clean your unit after usage with the appropriate cleaning methods.

  1. Steve Brown: Walking in the front door. Grabbing my Extreme Q remote, and turning it on to pre-heat. While its pre heating I go into the kitchen to grab a nice cold beverage and some food to snack on. By the time I’m done with that I go onto the couch, the unit is the perfect temp. from there I get the bag and go from there

  2. Melody Marie: My fav prep routine is getting my plate and grinder, and enjoying the aroma of my botanical. Nothing better than that.

  3. Smelling the great aromas before loading either of my portables. The really best preparation is “reloading” again and smelling the aroma……….

  4. Loading up the next episode of breaking bad and prepping a nice sammich while the vaporizer heats up ; ] *Anthony Smith*

  5. [Skyla Kotasek] The grinding is the most important no matter what method you use! But my favorite part which im surprized not to see is the actual exhale! Seeing the smoke or the amount of smoke u exhale is so fun and relaxing and its a great game to play when vaping with your friends or jus by yourself! Smoking is def the best part of my routine lol!

  6. I press the power button to my pre set perfect temperature, while the Vape is heating up I like to go downstairs to my kitchen and grab a drink of my choice then go to my room change into some comfortable house clothes like sweats and crank up some Led Zeppelin. Then sink into the couch and unwind for the evening with a nice fresh state of mind. -Andrew Leach (my facebook name)

  7. I have Nerve Damage in my arms and hands. Twist grinders get to me after awhile, so I got a nice Cuisinart Automatic Coffee Grinder. Grinding botanical is a piece of cake now, and the consistency is easily attainable by proper loading and pulsing of the machine. Uncle Viper

  8. Before I sit in my seat, I crank up the heat, 387 exactly you see, before my vape reaches heat, pop on the music and drop the beat, get in my zone, hit the vape, now im blown
