It doesn’t matter what kind of salary you make: good herb is not cheap. With an ounce of Blue Dream hovering around $200 in Denver these days and an ounce of OG Kush costing more than $300 you want to make sure you get the most out of every bud. And that’s exactly what the team at 710 Pipes vape shop is here to do: provide you with five tips that will enable you to make your vape weed last a bit longer. So let’s get to it.

For some people inflation is increasing faster than their salary, meaning they’re actually making less this year than they did last year. In an economic environment like this, you need to make sure you get the most out of your expensive vaping weed. Some folks might automatically think that means vaping less. And while that will certainly help you cut down on your weed expenses it’s not the only way to get more from your vaping budget. Here are five other ways you can get more out of the herb you have.

#1: Grind with care

Plenty of people grind their buds with their hands, and there’s something to be said for that kind of traditional approach to vaping dry herb. However, hand grinding leads to notoriously inefficient vaping as the heat does not penetrate the heart of larger clumps. Invariably you wind up tossing some perfectly good herb.

If you really want to make the most of your buds, get a decent grinder and use it to grind your weed until it’s light and fluffy in texture. When you eventually apply heat to properly ground herb it will wind up being applied evenly and effectively, you’ll produce larger clouds and you’ll need less to achieve the same level of buzz.

#2: Keep your vape nice and clean

First of all, keeping your vape clean is just common sense. You wouldn’t let your car or your clothes go indefinitely without washing them (at least we hope not) and the same should be true for vaporizers. But beyond simply showing your vape some love by keeping it clean, doing so will help ensure you get the most out of every last grain of your herb. How?

Every time you use your vape the process leaves behind some residue in the chamber. If you don’t clean that residue out of the device regularly, it will interfere with the heating process and absorb some of the terpenes that give the herb its distinctive flavor and aroma.

#3: Don’t toss that vaped weed!

If you’re looking to maintain your buzz throughout the evening but don’t want to reload the vaporizer, you can reuse already vaped weed in joints. That’s right. Instead of tossing your vaped weed, stow it in a baggie or container. Then, when all you need is to top up your buzz a little, break out this already-baked herb and roll yourself a joint. Sure, it won’t look or smell as good as virgin herb, and it won’t be as potent. But it will provide a nice little boost for your buzz so you don’t have to cook up some more fresh herb.

#4: Pay attention to the temperature setting

Another way to ensure you optimize the potential of the weed you have is to check the temperature settings on your vape. As a general rule dry herb vapes most efficiently at temperatures between 160° C and 220° C. The thing is, quite a few people bring their new vape home and dive right into using it without checking or adjusting the temperature.

If your vape is set to 160° or lower you’ll wind up inhaling nothing but warm air. On the other hand, if the temperature is set to more than 220°C, you risk your herb going up in flames. It is generally accepted that if the temp on your vaporizer is set from 160° to 190° C you’ll experience a “head high”, and if it’s set from 190° to 220°C you’ll experience a “body high”.

#5: Get a vaporizer with a small bowl

This harks back to the idea that one of the most effective ways to get more from your expensive herb is to use less of it. Having a small bowl on your vape will restrict the amount of herb you can use at any one time. Hopefully, you’ll find some type of satisfaction vaping smaller amounts and you won’t need to purchase new weed quite so often.


As you can see, there are numerous ways to ensure you get the most from the herb you have. All it takes is to be mindful of things like temperature settings and vape maintenance, and grind your herb properly so that it burns nice and evenly. You might also want to get a smaller bowl for your dry herb vape.
