How To Make Cannabis E-liquid At Home
Cannabis e-liquids are the stealthiest and fastest way to get stoned. Plus, they taste amazing. Use these instructions to make your own at home! It’s not as difficult as you might think.
Vaping is the new smoking. Okay, some cannabis lovers will always smoke the herb. But some users are ditching tar, carbon monoxide, and carcinogens for a cleaner hit of cannabinoids. Instead of combustion, vaporizers use convection heating, conduction heating, or a combination of both to release cannabinoids and terpenes into an inhalable vapor.
This is easier on the lungs, far more tasty, and a lot more discreet than walking around with a joint. CBD users also appreciate this form of ingestion. Because vaporizing a CBD liquid is much more enjoyable than swallowing a capsule.Vaporizers are available in both desktop and portable models. Vape pens are the stealthiest option and the easiest to carry around. These sleek and futuristic devices can vaporize both herb and extracts, depending on the model. In this article, you’ll learn how to make your own stash of cannabis e-liquid to use with your vape pen.
WHAT IS E-LIQUID?
E-liquid, otherwise known as vape juice, is traditionally a nicotine-containing product. However, cannabis users have put their own spin on things. Both THC and CBD e-liquids (with accompanying terpenes) are available, and feature a base of either propylene glycol (PG) or vegetable glycerin (VG).
PG is a colourless and odourless organic compound. It’s not very viscous, which makes things easier when it comes to refilling cartridges and cleaning your device. VG is a completely natural liquid derived from plant oils. It’s also odourless, yet has a slightly sweet taste. It’s much more viscous than PG. It’s not ideal for cleaning, but it produces thick, satisfying clouds of vapor.
Natural and artificial food-grade flavourings are also typically added to create an array of flavours—anything from candy and mint to fruits. E-liquid is then loaded into the tank of an e-cigarette or vaporizer and heated to anywhere between 90–200°C. Devices will need to be set to around 157°C to effectively evaporate THC, whereas CBD requires slightly higher temperatures of between 160–180°C.
USING E-LIQUIDS IN VAPE PENS
Vape pens represent the pinnacle of portability. These sleek devices feature similar technology to desktop vapes, just condensed into a pocket-friendly design. They share an appearance with standard pens and are therefore easy to store and conceal. Vape pens are composed of two main parts: the cartridge, and the battery. Cheaper, disposable vape pens come with pre-filled cartridges. However, more expensive models allow users to refill cartridges with their own product.
Vape pens are ideal for vaporizing high-potency extracts such as THC-enriched e-liquid or distillate. A single hit can provide just as much THC as an entire joint, with much less effort. There’s no need to carry around a container of buds, rolling papers, and a lighter. Just hit the pen and enjoy the ride.
WHY MAKE YOUR OWN E-LIQUID?
Learning to make your own e-liquid is a worthwhile endeavour. It offers the same level of satisfaction as cooking your own edibles or crafting your own extracts and tinctures. Making e-liquid at home also contributes to peace of mind. You’ll know exactly what you’re inhaling with every hit.
Store-bought e-liquid from unreliable companies can become contaminated in the same way that cannabis flowers can be laden with pesticides. There’s no way to tell exactly what’s inside a formula unless you get it tested at a lab—or simply make it yourself. You’ll also save money if you buy what you need in bulk or grow your own buds.
QUALITY INGREDIENTS ARE ESSENTIAL
Take your time to grow and gather the best supplies you can find. By starting out with the best materials possible, you’ll achieve the best outcome. There’s little point in going through the whole process to produce something substandard. Spend some time identifying the ideal source of VG and the best cannabis flowers you can get your hands on. Even better, you can grow your own. Check out these ten amazing strains with high THC levels and unmatched flavours to start you off on the right foot.
HOW TO MAKE YOUR OWN THC E-LIQUID
Now that you know the benefits of making your own vape juice, let’s get into the nitty-gritty. It’s time to make your own! As with almost anything to do with cannabis, there’s more than one way to skin this cat. Below, we’ll talk you through three of the easiest methods.
Using rosin to make your own vape juice is the cleanest and quickest method. Rosin, by nature, is a low-risk extract. There are no solvents or harsh chemicals used in the process. It’s simply a matter of applying a bit of heat and pressure to extract the resin. You can use buds to make rosin if you have enough resinous flowers to hand. If not, you can press rosin from concentrates such as BHO wax.
Cannabis e-liquids provide a potent hit of cannabinoids in the form of smooth, clean vapor. Use these methods to easily make your own weed e-liquid at home.
