Things You Should Remember When Vaping Marijuana

— August 1, 2019

Even though laws are changing regarding medical and recreational use of marijuana, there are still some unofficial “rules” worth knowing when it comes to vaping marijuana.

Having started vaping marijuana, you should be aware of possible risks and be able to face the consequences of this activity. Our advice is meant to help limit your risk.

Being a vaper, you should remember that there are several “rules.” When you first hear this, you might be afraid. But, it’s not something like a user agreement for software. The rules are special for you not to get into trouble while relaxing with your favorite marijuana vape pen.


The most important thing is to check if vaping marijuana is legal in your region your area. The list of countries where marijuana is legal is quite long, although it does not mean that you are allowed to do it everywhere. The fact that vaping itself might be forbidden also is worth your attention. Therefore, you have to check two lists of countries to not get into trouble. The other essential thing is that some countries aren’t on the list, because only some parts of them prohibit vaping marijuana. The examples might be the U.S., India, etc.


You might be perplexed with this, but do not think it is very complicated. The only thing you need to know is the difference between vaping liquids and vaping marijuana. You cannot disagree that even when you smoke a natural dry marijuana, you need to know how to twist the joint. If we talk about peculiarities of smoking dry herbs via vape, the main tip is that the vape should be designed especially for herbs. The good news is that if you already own some vape pen, you do not need to buy a new pen, you can buy a special tank for marijuana.

The better news is that there exists an alternative way of using weeds, not as dry herb, but as
vaping cbd oil To answer the question, “What is CBD?” we should go back to the 1940s, when its main element was first discovered. Cannabidiol (CBD) is a phytocannabinoid, one of many elements extracted from the cannabis plant. If we look through the many studies conducted since the discovery of the plant, we could see that it’s the effect on the human body is not the same as tetrahydrocannabinol (THC). CBD does not cause a “high” psychoactive effect as THC. That is why it is often used for medical purposes. CBD vape pens were developed as inhaling is one of the most effective ways of consuming CBD.

So, decide if you want to consume CBD oil with a special CBD vape pen or dry herb with the usage of special grinder and a proper vape pen.


No matter which method you have chosen, you would need some tips on inhaling cannabis. Your lungs perceive vapor differently from the smoke. In fact, the vapor is much colder than the usual cigarette smoke, but you can regulate the temperature with your vape pen, so choose the most comfortable for you. Do not be afraid if you start coughing after inhaling marijuana vapor; it is okay, let your body get used to the new substance. When you are vaping, keep track of the status of your herbs. They are to change color. You can take additional sessions of vaping until your substance has become too dark. If you see that your herb is colored tan, you might mix it with some fresh just to make them taste better. It is better to stop vaping when the herbs are dark caramel color.


We could hardly imagine eating food from unwashed plates or not brushing our teeth for months. If you would be asked why, you would definitely answer that it is important, because it is proper hygiene. The same principle might be applied to your vape pen. It is important to clean your vape because some unhealthy particles and microelements might stay in the device. Always use the brush to clean your herb chamber. Getting rid of all excess debris should become a part of the ritual of vaping. Experts also recommend using alcohol for cleaning the chamber and other parts of the vape, not to let microorganisms have the chance to survive. It is also important to sanitize your device before the first use. No matter how high the quality of the vape is and how famous the producer is, it goes without saying, “God helps those who help themselves”.

As it was said, these “rules” are not official, and you don’t have to follow every word, but to be on the safe side, it’s better follow a couple of simple rules based on research.
