Mary’s tips: Dry Herb Vaping for Beginners

Are you playing with the thoughts of getting your first dry herb vaporizer? You have come to the right place! The market is extremely saturated and can be overwhelming to pick out your first device, not even mention other things you need to know about. 

You might be asking questions like

How do you pick the best vape for your needs?

What are the different vaporizers?

What kind of dry herbs should you get?

Are vaporizers better than e-cigarettes?

In this article, I will guide you through the process of getting into dry herb vaping, and try to answer these questions as well.

What is a dry herb vaporizer and how does it work?

A dry herb vaporizer is an electronic device, that heats your plant material to the point where the active compounds can be released and inhaled. It does so without burning (combustion) the substance, so you won’t get nasty carcinogens in your lungs. Dry herb vaporizes the main role is to extricate beneficial active ingredients of the herb. 

Why is it good to have a vaporizer?

When you are smoking instead of vaping, by-products of burning can be inhaled with the smoke, which can be potentially harmful to you. Vaporizers operate at a much lower temperature than cigarettes, so you only inhale the desired compounds. 

Burning pretty much destroys the herbs. The herb is turning into ash and smoke, not even mention that the useful chemical compounds that we are longing for, are also wasted this way.  You need carefully controlled heat (which is what an electronic dry herb vaporizer does) to efficiently extract the active ingredients that dry herb is infused with. 

Dry herb Vapes VS E-liquid vapes

They are both called vaporizers, but there is a fundamental difference. 

Dry herb vapes designed to be used with, natural, raw herbs. Some dry herb vapes also work with wax-like substances, which is also the natural extraction of the plant. With their tiny oven, dry herb vapes heat up the substance to the right temperature where terpenes, flavors, and compounds are released. 

E-juice or e-liquid vaporizers work with liquid that is mainly made of propylene glycol and vegetable glycerin infused with artificial flavors and concentrated plant cannabinoids or nicotine. (CBD, THC) The disadvantage of these vapes that the liquid they work with can be mixed with all kinds of stuff that you might not even know. It is hard to tell which one is a quality product, that not gonna cause side effects in a long run. 

Obviously, with both categories, we need to keep in mind that vaping is a fairly new trend in this form, and with the potential health benefits there are potential side effects as well, that we can’t really know at this point. So always be responsible and do your research. 

The main kinds of dry herb vaporizers

There are three major categories, that we have to mention when we are talking about dry herb vaporizers

Portable Dry Herb Vaporizers: portable dry herb vapes mostly battery-operated, which allows them to be able to used basically anywhere. You can slip them into your pocket and enjoy a nice puff on the go. The market of these vapes is huge, there are plenty to pick from. This has mostly turned out this way because of the high demand for these types of devices. 

Analog (non-electric) Vaporizers: Analog vapes are also portable most of the time, but it is kinda a hustle to use them. The reason for that is because instead of a battery, they operate with an external heat source, like a torch lighter. Looking at the way it functions, an analog vape is closer to a pipe. However, the heating chamber is closed and shields the content from direct flame or heat. It uses a conduction heating method and there isn’t too much room for temperature control. 

Desktop Vaporizers:

Desktop vapes work on the same principles as portable dry herb vapes, only they are bigger, the allow even more sophisticated temp control. They are also more expensive and they need an electrical outlet. They are great for large vaping sessions.

Essentials you need to start dry herb vaping

When you start planning to get into dry herb vaping, there are few essentials you need to get your hands on. Here is a shortlist of the most important things. 

Herb

Dry herbs that are most commonly used in a dry herb vaporizer are marijuana and hemp. The cannabis plant is used for medicinal and recreational purposes. It contains a high amount of THC or CBD, the two most recognized and studied cannabinoids. CBD is legal on a federal level and it has to be hemp-derived to contain less than 0.3% THC. High THC strains are marijuana strains and legality varies in different states and countries. But in most places the recreational use of marijuana is illegal. CBD is good for relaxation and pain management without altering your mind. THC may medicinal benefits but it is also psychoactive. Besides the cannabis plant, there is plenty of legal herbs that you can vaporize. Just mention a few: ginseng, ginseng, tobacco, eucalyptus, basil, lavender, lemon balm, kava mint, peppermint, thyme, etc. 

Wax

Has become a popular cannabis concentrate, because it is clean, lightweight, easy to use, and super-high potency. It can have many names: Hash oil, shatter, budder, and crumble, depending on the texture of the solidified oil. Wax is extracted from hemp or marijuana using butane as a solvent. 

Grinder

Herb grinder is a small device with “teeth” mostly made of metal, and it is used to break your herb buds down into small pieces. A grinder is a little magic weapon that makes your life so much easier. Vaporizers require small pieces of the plant material, in order to be able to evenly cook the herb and deliver the best experience. Herb grinders also can be used for spices and other substances. The material, the color, and the shape of a grinder vary, but we recommend doing your research to make sure you get good quality. You don’t want the grinder to shred itself and add extra particles to your natural herb. 

Accessories

However accessories are not entirely essential they significantly enhance your vaping experience, or just make your life easier. Like a smell-proof case for your vape, it’s a nice addition. It stores your vaporizer, doesn’t let the smell out, and protects the vape from dirt or dust, especially the mouthpiece. There are portable charging docks or replacement batteries so your vape is always ready to roll. Water bong extensions make the vapor tastier and smoother, and the list could go on. You can personalize your vaporizer with a stylish mouthpiece. 

Cleaning and packing tools

Vaporizers and used with natural plant matter, so they require regular cleaning. Evaporated cannabinoids, oil, and waxes leave a sticky residue in the chamber and the mouthpiece, which can build up over time. You can scrub that away with a tiny brush that usually comes in a package with a vape, including other supplies, like cotton swabs. A packing tool cab also comes in the package that is useful for loading and stirring the content of the chamber. 

How to Choose the right Vaporizer?

Vape buying guide
Vape buying guide

It appears that the more research you do about vaporizers, the more equation comes up. The main one is though: What to consider when buying a vaporizer? 

There are so many options that you can choose from, it can get pretty overwhelming. However, if we break it down, we can see that there are really 4 main aspects that you need to exam closer. 

Price range

Everyone’s budget is different, and portable vaporizers can start as low as $50 and can go all the way up to $300. (The big desktop vapes easily can hit the $500 mark.) Whatever your budget is, you can find quality vapes for sure in that range, but once you have the amount of money you willing to spend you can look further into the other aspects. 

Frequency of usage 

This is fairly easy if you break it down. If you are someone who vapes occasionally, or just on the weekends, you will be pleased with a simpler, more straightforward design. If you use it on a daily basis, maybe it is comfortable for you to look for the more advanced and vapes, with bigger bowls and a more powerful battery. 

Portability 

This kind of comes hand in hand with our previous point. If you are using your vaporizer occasionally and mostly at home, it maybe doesn’t matter to you if the device is not pocket-sized. However, if you are using it several times a day you probably need a stronger batter, while the device itself sleek, easy to carry around, and discrete. 

Vaping by yourself or sharing

Vaping can be a social event. You get together with your friends, talk, and laugh or watch a movie and you enjoy your vaporizer altogether. For these kinds of events, you will need a powerful desktop vaporizer, with a bigger bowl size that will work for an extended period of time. (Longer sessions). Portable devices unfortunately can’t really compete in this situation. 

Note: The quality of materials used to build the vape is important. Underpriced portable dry herb vapes can be built from materials that can’t handle the heat, and dissolve or melt. This can cause serious health issues.

Let’s start you first vaping session

Burn off: This is just for safety reasons but it is good to start your vaporizer fresh out of the box with a burn-off session. Set the vape to the highest temp and do a few cycles with an empty chamber to sterilize the device. After you are done clean the vapor path with a cotton swab, and also clean the mouthpiece with rubbing alcohol. 

Grinding and packing: Grind your herb well but not into dust. Vaporizers work well with evenly grind substances. When the herb is ready, load the chamber, pack it well but not too tight, to allow airflow to path through. 

Turn on the device: When your vape is on you constantly experimenting with temperature. You will notice a difference in taste and the amount of vapor as you are changing the temperature. Find the point when you are satisfied. If your herb tastes too harsh or experiencing coughing, start from a lower temp. 

Be patient and give time to yourself to find the best settings and vape away 🙂

Mary’s guide: Your new best friends, portable dry herb vaporizers

Every day more and more people want to make a change. Whether you just want to up-level your wellness game, or trying to quit smoking, picking up a vaporizer can be a good option for you. 

But hey guys, I know…. Starting can be intimidating, just like everything in life that is new to us. Well, dry herb vaporizing is not rocket science, but it does require some knowledge. I put this little guide together to help you get started, and to just be able to choose from the many vaporizers on the market.

What is a dry herb vaporizer?

Dry herb vaporizers, loose-leaf, or weed vaporizers are all the same thing. They are electronic devices, that heat up the substance to the point where the active compounds and natural ingredients turn into vapor. We use the cannabis plant or other herbs in their most natural form, without any added chemicals.

How vaporizing is different than smoking?

Vapor requires a way lower temperature than smoking. Vaping devices have the highest temperature around 445°F, while the combusted substance during smoking can reach 1652 °F. When you are combusting there are byproducts produced such as chemical ingredients or carcinogens, that can be extremely harmful. When you vaporize, you won’t get to the burning point, and you are just inhaling vapor instead of smoke. Vapor is infused with natural compounds, that have plenty of health benefits. Also, the vapor is way easier on your lungs, even top athletes vaporize without compromising their performance. If you feel like reading more about how vaporizing affects your health click here.


The different kind of vaporizers

There are 2 main groups that we can talk about. There are dry herb and liquid or concentrate vaporizers.  

From dry herb vapes, we differentiate portable and desktop vaporizers. Desktop vapes are big ones with high efficiency and great performance, but they need to be connected to the main power, so you only can use them at the comfort of your home. 

Portable dry herb vapes can be battery or butane-powered. Vapes without batteries are usually called pipes. They can deliver a great vapor, however, they also can be a bit of a hustle. You need a string torch lighter and you need to hold the end of the pipe into the open fire to get it hot enough to produce vapor, When you are just starting you might don’t want to deal with that. So battery-powered vape can be great on the go. They come in all kinds of sizes and shapes, they are cool, technologically advanced devices. 

Vape pens are simpler devices than dry herb vapes. Usually, they have 1- 3 temperature settings. They can be small and portable since the coil inside, that delivers the heat is tiny and powerful. E-juices or e-liquids have a purpose to deliver a concentrated amount of nicotine, CBD, or THC. Eliquids can come in a lot of different strengths and flavors.

How does a dry herb vaporizer work?

Conduction or Convection heating: Dry herb vapes work with 2 heating methods. Pure convection vaporizers use hot air, that circulates around your herb, gradually and evenly heating it until the cannabinoids evaporate. In a conduction vape the herb directly in contact with the wall of the chamber and releases cannabinoids when it reaches the right temperature. Conduction heating can easily cause combustion and burn your substance if you set the temperature too high. 

Cannabinoids and their vaping temps

Session or on-demand vaporizers: Session vapes usually have a preset session time. During this time the vaporizer reaches the required temperature and keeps that temp until it shots off. You want to take as many draws as you can since the herb won’t stop cooking until the vaporizer shots off. One load of the chamber is enough for one session. During on-demand mode you press a button until the herb reaches the right temp, you take a draw, and the device cools back down. Between draws, it doesn’t cook the herb. That allows you to use one load of chamber throughout an extended period of time. On-demand vapes are designed to heat up or cool down quickly.

Using your vaporizer: You can pack your nicely ground herb in the chamber. Close the vape and turn it on. Start your session at a lower temperature. Marijuana vaporizes the best at 338°F – 410°F (170°C and 210°C). Once the device reaches the right temp, you inhale deeply and slowly. People believe that starting at a lower temp allows you the experience the full flavor of the herb. The best dry herb vapes produce a nice vapor cloud but don’t expect something similar, that you would see from a vape pen. It also hits lighter than cigarette smoke. With one load you usually able to take 5-10 hits before the dry herb is evenly cooked and ready to be replaced.

Herbs to vaporize

How to choose a vaporizer?

When you are trying to buy the best vaporizer for your needs, there are certain things you might want to consider. 

Price range: Dry herb vaporizer price range can be between $60 and $300-$400. You can find budget vapes but keep it in mind, low price sometimes goes hand in hand with low quality. You don’t want low quality, mostly because when a vape heats up, low-grade material, such as plastic can release toxins. You don’t need to go for the most expensive one either. When you first starting it’s good to pick something in the mid-range, and the more you are using it the more you will know about needs. Then later you can still upgrade. Aim for something that is made of quality material and has an okay price.  

How often do you want to use it: You might want to vape only a couple of times a week or occasionally. Or maybe you are replacing cigarettes and you vape several times a day. These are important because different vapes are saved differently, they have different battery life, they weigh different. Obviously, if you use it often on the go you want something lightweight, discreet, easy to use. If you just hit it once in a while at home you can be less specific about the specs mentioned above.

Where do you want to use it: This kinda goes with some things mentioned above. Using it on the go means you need something, quick, easy, and desecrate, that might slips right into your pocket. Using it mostly just home will allow you to compromise with size.

FAQ

Why are dry herb vaporizers so expensive?

Vaporizers are using advanced technology. They need to be built from quality materials that are not going to deflate byproducts during heating. So sometimes you need to pay the price for the quality. You can also save money in the long run, since you need little substance to get the same results, that you would get from smoking.

Do dry herb vaporizers smell?

Vapor doesn’t stick your clothes and hands like cigarette smoke would do. However, if you vaporize the cannabis plant, you can smell the herb from your vaporizer. You can fix that though with a smell proof case. Another tip: If you worry about the after-smell of vape just toss a gum into your mouth and you are good to go. 

Are dry herb vaporizers healthy?

There are several opinions on if it is healthy or not, but the fact is if you don’t combust, you won’t get the nasty chemicals, that you would get from smoking. Dry herb vapor is also infused with active, natural compounds and cannabinoids. Just make sure you get your herb from a reliable source. 

Does It Feel Different Using A Dry Herb Vaporizer Compared To Smoking?

Yes, it does. With smoking, you get a harsher taste, visible smoke, and the burnt scent tends to linger and stick to your fingers, clothes, etc. Vaping on a lower temp, you don’t combust your herb, just releasing cannabinoids, terpenes, natural oils. These are more flavorful and smell way less. Vapor is also not as visible as smoke.

How do you know when you have used all the dry herbs in a bowl? 

The herb is done when it starts to taste like burnt popcorn. You should also be able to see that the fresh, green material turned into a light brown, evenly cooked substance. If it is too dark, with a harsh smell, you have probably overdone it.

What’s the best way to clean a dry herb vaporizer?

Good quality dry herb vaporizers usually have removable pieces. A grade material, like ceramic, and steel can be soaked into rubbing alcohol. Soak the removable parts for 30 minutes to an hour, then remove them and let them completely air-dry. If your vaporizer has non-removable parts use a cotton swab. Dip it into rubbing alcohol then gently rub the pieces until they are clean. Let the alcohol evaporate and you are done. 

I hope I could provide you with some useful information, that will make it easier for you to pick your new portable dry herb vaporizer.

AirVape Legacy Update

Greetings vapers and vaperettes, I am back with yet another hot take about Airvape’s latest portable vape, the Legacy.

If you’ve been reading my posts you know I’ve reviewed the Legacy when it came out and absolutely loved it. Now, Airvape announced some updates for the Legacy as a response to some negative feedback about harsh tasting vapor at higher temperatures. Here’s what they’ve said:

“We heard from many vapers who enjoyed the quick heating and intensity, and also from people who reported that the heating is somewhat too “harsh”.”

My first reaction was “wow…they just recently released this product and they’re already actively improving it on the basis of the feedback collected from their customers? ” This to me was surprising, to say the least, I don’t recall having dealt with any other company that has this level of dedication to the needs of their customers. This is something I can definitely appreciate.

The article then goes on to explain how the new chamber component works:

“The Smooth Edge Chamber Component was designed to make your vaping experience smoother and more balanced, it is also easily removable with the help of the included packing tool for cleaning purposes.  The placement of the Chamber Component inside the chamber creates an air buffer which allows for the air flow to have a more even heat distribution at higher temp settings. “

I personally did not experience said harshness in my session with the Legacy but I understand how preferences can widely differ from people to people plus I usually tend to seek out the temperature sweet spot on my vapes and for the Legacy I find that loose-leaf cooks best between 380 and 400 F.

Regardless, I still received the updated package which also contained the new and improved micro-dosing basket which now fits much better into the heating chamber.

In conclusion, if you own an Airvape Legacy you are eligible to get the upgrade package so if you haven’t already, reach out to their customer service team and they will immediately hook you up.

What is 510 thread?

Let’s start at the beginning with the 510 thread, 510 has to do with the vape mod itself. The 5 in the 510 is the distance of the thread between each other also known as the pitch of the thread which is 0.5mm and for the 10 in the 510 it is for the total of threads which is supposed to be there. Each company that produces vape mod for vape RDA devices and vape pen keeps the 0.5mm thread pitch but does not always include 10 threads.

The difference between 710 and 510 threads is quite big. 710 Has nothing to do with thread or pitch. It is a term that we cannabis users use for cannabis oils as 710 is oil if you were to turn it upside down. It is a vape for cannabis oils or a mod that can be used for those applications.

510 thread cartridges

There is a big variety of 510 cartridges available that are even prefilled with CBD and THC oils giving you the percentages of each that are in the oil.

Stoners Have Better Health than You!

Benefits of CBD Vaping

Most people prefer vaping to smoking because it is quick, enjoyable, and more effective. They carry over this preference to CBD consumption as well. 

The most common forms of CBD are e-liquids, edibles, and oral products.

The e-liquids allow you to vape CBD. 

If you think of it, vaping is a more effective way of consuming CBD than edibles, transdermal patches, capsules, and topicals. For a reason, when you inhale CBD, its Bioavailability increases. This means your body is absorbing the drug more efficiently and in greater amounts. 

When you ask medical professionals about the drug, they will tell you that vaping is the safest option of consuming CBD rather than smoking it. The good thing about vaping is you will get the same effect as smoking, but you will not have to deal with combustion, which can cause tar to build up in your lungs.

Another reason why people prefer vaping is that it is user-friendly. You do not need to be a smoker or vaper to use CBD oil. You can find scores of research backing up the benefits of cannabis. 

Effects of CBD of Your Health

CBD is a calming component, which helps people curb the symptoms of pain, anxiety, and depression. Moreover, CBD is a proven anxiety reliever, pain reliever, and mood adjuster. 

However, excess consumption might induce drowsiness and sleepiness. However, if you take it in the recommended amount, CBD will provide you with many benefits. Some people say that CBD induces alertness, and a study on rats proves these results. 

CBD does contain a little amount of THC. However, the amount is too low to induce paranoia, high, uneasiness, or other psychoactive symptoms. A survey shows that the majority of CBD consumers use the substance to overcome anxiety. 

The Most Common Effects of CBD Vaping

  • Alertness, if you take a low dose 
  • Drowsiness, if you take a high dose
  • Improvement in mood
  • Relaxation
  • Relief from Anxiety
  • Comfort

Why Vaping CBD is Better than Smoking

Improves Lung Health

To lead a healthy life, you need strong and healthy lungs. However, smoking cigarettes can destroy your lungs over time. On the other hand, e-cig vapes can improve your lung health. Vaping is even better than smoking a joint or a bowl. Vape filters the smoke and reduces combustion, reducing the tar buildup on your lungs. 

CBD Vapes Are Smoother

If you are into smoking, you must know about the robust and pungent smoke you need to bear while smoking a joint. When you talk about vapes, their smoke is much smoother than traditional joints. 

A majority of vapers state that inhaling a vape smoke cloud feels like inhaling steam. The smoother effect of vaping CBD means you can easily consume the required dose without coughing or irritating your airway. 

Easy Availability 

You can easily find medical cannabis in many pharmacies. Hence, you do not have to go out of your way to find CBD oils for vaping.

Quick Response That Lasts Long 

When you are dealing with medical issues, you want a solution really fast. You want something that will benefit you in the long run and also helps you manage your health problems. Medicinal marijuana does that for you. 

The vapes are super-fast when it comes to calming down your inflammation, and its effect lasts for a long time. If you talk about pills, pain-relieving gels, or capsules, they will take a few hours to relieve your pain. However, CBD vapes deliver the desired results in a matter of minutes.  

So, Should I Start Vaping CBD Oil?

vaping CBD oil

CBD oil offers a large number of benefits. The substance helps you deal with inflammation, chronic pains, diabetes, heart diseases, soothing chemotherapy side effects, and more.

The big question, however, is which method you should consume CBD?

Gummies are great, and even rolling a joint can help, but far and away, the most convenient option available to you today is vaping.

CBD oils are easily accessible, and you would be doing your lungs a favor by vaping CBD instead of smoking.

If you’re a medicinal cannabis patient or just a cannabis enthusiast, you might have heard about Indica, Sativa, and Hybrid. But if you’re new to the idea of using cannabis, you may be wondering what these terms are, what the difference is, and how it can benefit you for your medical condition. Well, here is what you need to know about indica, sativa, and hybrid effects:

1.     Indica Strains

Indica contained evolutionary traits and were first discovered near the Himalayan Mountain range. This plant can protect itself from wind and cold due to its thickness, which prot

ects these plants in such harsh conditions.  Indicas provide higher yield in a minimum space.

·        Appearance

This type of marijuana has a bushy appearance, shorter than Sativas, have thicker stems, and broader and bigger pot leaves. They grow slower than Sativas at the time of the vegetation stage. This is because it has a higher concentration of buds.

·        Benefits

This is a true stoner drug that induces sleepiness in no time. If you feel stressed after a hectic shift, this type of cannabis can relax you. You need to smoke Indica strains in the evening as they affect your capability of functioning normally.

2.     Sativa Strains

e differences, Sativas and Indicas come under the same category. You will know the difference better if you have been smoking both these types of marijuana for some time.

There is a massive difference between the appearance of both types of cannabis. Sativa is tall but has scarce and thin leaves. Sativa has a faster growth cycle, which is similar to vegetables. Sativa does not need extra care and micromanagement. You can grow these plants outdoors with proper exposure to light. If you have a big backyard and a county property, you can grow these plants quickly. But as these plants are tall, you should wall your property correctly.

·        Benefits

Most creative workers, designers, and artists use this plant to activate their minds and generate ideas. Sativa has a low CBD concentration and high levels of THC, so this plant can give you some paranoia and visual trips. Sativas can be useful for medical conditions,

but it is better to go with Indicas and Hybrids.

3.     Hybrid Strains

Hybrid is a mixture of Sativa and Indica, making this type of cannabis more interesting to gro. Hybrid sounds cool, but there isn’t anything new from an agricultural point of view. Civilizations have been combining different plants for so long, so they start combining different strains of cannabis, this is nothing new.

As time passes by, new and new versions of hybrids are combined with downplaying drawbacks and improving the features. There are numerous types of Hybrids with different effects and impacts on the body. It differs because of the growing methods.

Hybrid plants may have different features, impacts, and effects on the mind and body of a person, even if the grower is the same. Hybrids can control and change factors such as healing effect, terpenes, smell, and taste, and type of cannabis h

igh.

There are two major types of hybrids. One is the Indica-dominant, and the other is the Sativa-dominant. You can estimate the properties with the names as Indica-dominant have higher indica traits and vice versa. You will also find hybrid strains with a balance in both the strains. You will find Hybrid strains the most in the market.

Each Hybrid has specific features pertaining to psychoactive and medical effects. To obtain the potential impact of Hybrids, you need to analyze the chemical composition, CBD, and THC percentages.

How Do Weed Vaporizer Brands Differ?

It’s very easy to think that weed vaporizers are basically one and the same. They might have different appearances, they might weigh differently, they might even have different brands and logos, but at the end of the day, you know that they are all united in their purpose: to get you high.

Believe me, I understand that. But the problem is, you have to look beyond your conception of the product so you can actually find the very best product as far as your personal set of circumstances go.

Unfortunately, a lot of people think that if a device is going to work the same way as other devices, there’s really not much difference between them.

This is a very dangerous mindset to have because you can blow through a lot of cash if this is your attitude. Seriously. Because there’s a lot more going on beyond the difference in the logo.

These differences in design really reflect their design and philosophy. It also reflects the larger and deeper differences in overall corporate philosophy.

Now, please understand that weed vaporizers are not produced by the same corporate culture as Toyota, Honda or General Motors. It’s a black and white difference.

But whenever you’re dealing with any kind of manufacturing, there are still business considerations involved. And turning a blind eye to these business considerations is going to put you at a serious disadvantage.

Keep the following in mind when you’re in the market for a new weed vaporizer. It can make a big difference as far as you get the most value out of your hard-earned cash.

Years in Business

 

If a company has been around for quite a while, you know that it is more trustworthy.

How come? Well, every year you’re in business, there’s a possibility you’d get sued. Every year you’re in business, there’s a possibility that all sorts of drama involving your consumers might happen.

So, all these years are basically a preparation for you to not only produce high-quality products but to serve the people who use those products.

Industry Awards

Certain brands have a lot of awards. Other brands have absolutely zero awards. Why should you care? Aren’t a lot of these awards rigged?

Well, it depends on the award. If the award is from an organization you haven’t heard of before, it’s probably okay to disregard the award. Look at the brand as if it didn’t win awards.

On the other hand, if it got industry awards, these are awards handed out by other people in the electronic cigarette industry or vaporizer industry, pay attention.

When industries give out awards, they are basically acknowledging industry leaders. They’re acknowledging people who are doing it right all day, every day. They look at these award winners as the ones who set the standards for the industry.

You know you’re in solid footing when the brand that you are considering buying has a long track record of getting industry awards.

Renowned Product Line

If it seems that people that you know can’t seem to shut up about the product line of a particular brand, you might want to sit up and pay attention.

You have to understand that people don’t get excited about a product for no good reason. As the old saying goes, when there is smoke, there is fire.

There’s a reason why people are making all these noises. It’s not like they’re saying all of these things because they have nothing else better to do. There is a kernel of truth in all of this. This all leads from somewhere.

So, the key here is to pay attention to why people are excited. Is it an innovative design? Is it customer support? Is it the overall value that people get? Is it their advertising campaign?

Whatever it is, get to the root of the issue and figure out the reason for the renown or the fame of the brand and if it meets your particular needs.

For example, if people can’t stop talking about a particular herb vaporizer because it doesn’t gum up, you might want to pay attention if maintenance is a big thing with you.

If you’ve been burned in the past with devices that take forever to clean up, you might want to pay attention to that particular brand that has built a reputation for being low maintenance.

Do you see how this works? At the end of the day, it’s all about your needs. So as long as you’re systematic and methodical about this, there’s a high chance you will buy the right product the first time around.
