Do you struggle with the best way to consume wax using your vaporizer pen for wax? With so many different devices, brands, and manufacturers on the market it can be difficult to figure out which one is the best for your needs.
A vaporizer pen comes with four main parts: a mouthpiece, a battery, an atomizer chamber, and a heating element. The design of the vaporizer can be either pot based or wax based – there are many different kinds available in both styles.
To start off with, you need to figure out which kind of wax you’re going to be using in your device. This will dictate how the rest of the process goes. Some people like to vape on wax concentrate, while others prefer to use low-concentrate shatter. To choose the right kind of wax for your device, you’re going to have to do a little research on what’s available and what’s the best for you.
Some things that you should keep in mind when wax vaping:
Wax does not produce a strong vapor, so it’s important to ensure that your device has a lot of power and isn’t just “blowing clouds”. While you can use this method with traditional e-liquids, it takes extra liquid and is more dangerous as the temperatures can easily become too intense.
Some devices only require a small amount of heat to vaporize the concentrate. When producing the vapor, a small amount of wax is used. This means that you don’t want to use too much wax, which could throw off the temperature of your device and create a mess. Therefore, you need to make sure you have the glass on properly and that nothing is touching it.
It’s important to ensure that nothing is touching your heating element, especially if it’s low-resistance – this could cause damage. To avoid this, you can use some kind of tool like a toothpick or wooden utensil – just make sure it isn’t metallic (which can cause an electrical shock).
Some devices will come with pre-made coils, while others come with empty lenses. If your device does not come with either of these, you’ll need to fill them yourself. Don’t be afraid to try different combinations until you find what works best for you.
You’d be surprised how many tools are needed to use a vaporizer pen – here’s a list of all the ones that I use and recommend:
- Liquid bottle (this is what I use for when I’m on the go)
- Pipe cleaner (great for cleaning out your atomizer chamber)
- French fry cutter (great for removing extra waxy residue from your glass)
How to prepare and use your wax pen? Easy!
Prepare your wax
The next step is to prepare your wax. Since wax is a dry concentrate you keep in a glass storage, you’ll need to start off with a little bit of water. This will help the wax mix together better and make it easier to use.
Start with around 10 percent water and 90 percent concentrate – this should be a good starting point that you can adjust from there if needed.
Fill up atomizer
Next, you’re going to want to fill up your atomizer chamber with your wax mixture – make sure nothing is touching the heating element or the glass. When this is done, screw your mouthpiece back on.
Heat it up
To get started, turn your device on (if there’s a button, press it) and wait about 20 seconds. At this point it is recommended that you let the wax heat up for a few minutes. This will ensure that it’s adequately melted and ready for you to start vaporizing.
Take a hit
Now you can take your hit: hold in the vapor for around 5-10 seconds, then let it go out slowly through your mouthpiece. This will help keep any unwanted substances from getting into your mouth or nose if they are present in your concentrate. It also keeps moisture from building up inside of your device if you have water present in it.
If desired, you can repeat these steps and add more water to your concentrate until you reach the consistency that you’re looking for.
When using wax in a vape pen, it is important to remember this:
Wax does not produce a strong vapor, so ensure that your device has a lot of power and isn’t just “blowing clouds”. If your device isn’t powerful enough or there’s too much moisture, this could cause damage. You need to make sure the heating element is on properly – if something is touching it and it’s low-resistance, this could cause damage. If something is touching it and it’s metallic, this could cause an electrical shock. It’s important to ensure that nothing is touching your heating element – if something is touching it, this can cause damage.
Use some kind of tool to remove excess wax build-up – a pipe cleaner or a french fry cutter will help clean the chamber. Wax does not produce a strong vapor, so be sure that you’re getting the right amount of concentrate and that you’re heating it at the right temperature. If your device isn’t powerful enough or there’s too much moisture, this could cause damage. If you are using a pot-based device, ensure that everything is clean. You want to make sure that there isn’t any residue from previous material left in the device.
While some may take longer than others, these steps will ensure that you are able to properly use your vaporizer pen for wax on a consistent basis.
Keep in mind that the longer you’ve used your device, the easier it will be to clean it out and keep it from getting clogged up with concentrates. This is why I recommend using a little bit of water with every new material and always keeping your device clean by taking it apart occasionally before use.
When you’re done using your device, you can simply boil it in some hot water for a few minutes, put on some gloves, and some rubber gloves are recommended if you are using any kind of oil-based concentrates. The last step is to give the heating element a good clean and check that there is no wax residue inside of the atomizer chamber.
Overall, wax is one of my favorite materials for use in vaporizers. I hope you enjoyed this article!
