Vaping’s popularity is growing unbelievably fast, and it’s very encouraging to see more people switch away from smoking every day. But sometimes you’ll see a review, try out that particular vape, and not get the same results that were in the video. That’s definitely a frustrating experience and all of us have been through it at least once. As is often the case, nuances make a huge difference.
Whether you’re a total vaping newbie or just unboxing a new device, here are my ten techniques that will ensure a fantastic experience across the entire spectrum of dry herb vaporizers!
Keep it green, keep it sneaky!

I – The Dank
The importance of using quality herb cannot be overstated. Even a badass vape like the Ghost MV1 can’t make dank clouds from schwag. Simply put, garbage in = garbage out. These days it is easier for many of us to get good herb with legalization spreading, but even in legal areas, you’ll notice a big gap in quality between top-shelf flower and the bargain stuff. Considering how efficient vaping is and how much herb (and money) you’ll save versus smoking, go ahead and get the best flower you can. You’ll be glad you did.
II – The Grind
Grinding your herb correctly is critical to getting good performance from vapes like the Storz & Bickel Crafty. I prefer a medium or medium-fine grind because it works the best with the most vapes. Grinding too coarse will leave a lot of surface area unexposed to the heat. You also want to avoid grinding too fine or pulverizing your bud into a powder. It’ll be tougher to work with, clog up your vape more, and particulate can even fly through into your mouth… nobody likes particulate flying into their mouth. Medium grind is the way to go.
III – The Damp
Getting your herb dry is important to vaping, especially in butane pieces like the Sticky Brick Jr. If the flower has too much moisture it will not vaporize as well. After I grind up a nugg I’ll leave it sitting exposed for an hour or so to dry out. If you’re looking for max vapour, let it dry completely. However, doing this will cause your bud to lose some of those flavourful terpenes and the vapour will be harsher.
IV – The Pack
For the new Splinter Z and most other vapes, a “full but not tight” pack will give you the best results. I go for a full oven, but I don’t compress it or try to force any extra in there. Some vapes like the Pax 3 do well with a firm pack in the chamber, but for most pieces filling it up without stuffing it is the best bet.
V – The Temp
Of course, the temperature is very important to vaping, but especially so with beastly cloud monsters like the Healthy Rips Fierce. If the temp’s too low, you won’t get much vapour and you’ll miss out on all the fun. Too high and the vapour will be harsh – nobody wants that either. The “best” temperature will depend on your personal preference, the vaporizer, and the situation.
Personally, I start my new vapes at 370F and adjust from there. If I’m ripping through water, I bump it up to 390F. I advise finding your own starting temp and fine-tuning from there, like a musician using a certain song to check new speakers….
