There are so many different options available right now, so get something that tends to your needs. What a great time to be a stoner!


Why vape my marijuana?

Vaping MarijuanaLet’s face it, everyone is a health critic these days. Most stoners are aware that ingesting your weed by “combustion” is unhealthy. When we smoke our marijuana, we are smoking it just like we would a cigarette. Side effects seen by smokers such as inflammation of the lungs and bronchitis may slowly be seen by those who ingest their marijuana by combustion. When we vape our marijuana, the material is heated to the perfect temperature that the material vaporizes. Instead of smoke being created like as we see with combustion. We see vapor, which does not contain the harmful chemicals that smoke does.

Where can I purchase one!?

Beginner’s Guide to Vaping Marijuana 4There are plenty of resources to purchase a vape for marijuana!  You may go into a store front to purchase your set up from your local dispensary or hemp/bong shop. I myself prefer going into a store and purchasing from them so that I may talk to the clerk and really get to know what Im looking at. If you prefer online shopping, online vape shops such as Nikki’s have herbal vaporizers for purchase that will be delivered straight to your door. There are also online dispensaries that have a huge selection of products.


I myself love to purchase pre loaded atomizers with oil. Currently, I am puffing on my Toko Gold pen that has powerful c02 extract formulated with live terpines for a stellar taste. The strain with all the goodness extracted was Train Wreck.  I purchase the set up (battery, charger and atomizer) and after that I just purchase refill atomizers that I screw onto the battery. Easy peasy! Where ever you purchase your set up, make sure that their is a warranty included with purchase. And always follow the instructions provided, it is super easy to damage something. This is why I like going to a store because the clerk can walk you through the set up.

Can I use anything else in my vape?

Beginner’s Guide to Vaping Marijuana 6As stated before, you may vape dry herb and concentrates (shatter, rosin, budder, crumble, wax and oil) in your vape. But, be fore warned. Most rigs are not universal. You will first need to decide what you want to put in your rig before making your big purchase. Are you into on dry herb? Or do you enjoy oils? Perhaps you like to go heavy and hard with shatters? Whatever your choice, you will need to make sure your purchase is compatible for what you want to use it for. Some set ups are compatible with both dry herb and concentrates. Check out the V2 Series 7 if you are interested in a 3 in 1 vape pen for marijuana uses. For warned that you will need to attach a different cartridge for each material. This is an easy click on click off process though. The pen itself works great and has a lot of raving reviews, definitely worth a look!

If I “vape” already, can’t I just add oil to my electronic cigarette?

In a sense you can add an marijuana oil to your eJuice. Just a couple drops as your oil is probably too strong to go on its on. And you want to keep the same consistency as your eJuice. Obviously you will not be able to vape your shatter, budder, wax or dry herb in your electronic cigarette. Smarten up and use your head. Your electronic cigarette was built with a certain use in mind. It did not for once ever think you would try to stick busted weed into it. If you are interested in only having one device, the V2 Series 7 is your best best. There is also the Series 3 that is also 3 in 1 compatible. The difference is the power packed behind each. The Series 7 is the winner hands down.

Should I tread slow?

Beginner’s Guide to Vaping Marijuana 2Whenever trying a new device or marijuana compound, you should tread slow. I cough my brains out daily because I can not really feel the vapor in my throat like a do with smoke. So I take these ginormous hoots that resemble the smoke coming from a dragon after she flattens a village with her flame thrower. But I’m ok with it, because I get ridiculously high and the taste is absolutely fantastic. You also want to tread slow with how much material you are adding to your device. A little goes a long way. Especially when you are dealing with concentrates, adding too much substance may cause the device to leak out. Now with dry herb you do not want to over pack and clog the device. You can always add more after a couple hoots.
