Everything You Need to Know About Dry Herb Vaping

everything you need to know about dry herb vaping

There are many ways to consume cannabis; however, because Ohio is deemed a ‘no smoke state’ patients are not allowed to smoke or combust their flower. So how do you use medical cannabis in the flower form?

Vaporize It

Dry herb vaping is a new process for many patients. Many are used to the traditional way of consuming cannabis. Since this is prohibited in Ohio, patients must use a dry herb vaporizer to safely and legally consume their cannabis.

What is a dry herb vape?

Dry herb vaporizers look similar to other vape pens. Dry herb vaporizers contain a small oven or ‘chamber’ that is used to heat up your cannabis to the appropriate temperature. Vaporizing your cannabis is safer than combusting or smoking it because it heats up to the exact temperatures needed to provide patients with the most benefits.

Tips For A Successful Vape Session

If you are considering using a dry herb vaporizer to consume your cannabis, there are some tips you should keep in mind for a successful session.

Fresh is Best

Before vaping your cannabis, you should make sure your flower is fresh. Vaping old cannabis will likely not yield the same benefits as fresh bud from the dispensary. Your experience will only be as good as your cannabis. When packing your cannabis into a vape, it should have the texture of a fine powder. Be sure to grind up your cannabis enough to fill your vape for a couple of sessions prior to beginning.

Temperature is Key

Getting your cannabis to the right temperature is the most important part of medicating with a dry herb vaporizer. Temperature is the most important factor because the cannabinoids and terpenes found in your flower will be most potent when vaporized to the right temperature. The general rule of thumb is 356-410F.

Keep it Clean

There’s nothing worse than having a dirty vape pen. To ensure that you do not risk clogging up your vaporizer, it is important to make time for routine cleaning.
