We’re going to show you how to make a dry herb vaporizer. Why? Well because every stoner we meet nowadays wants a vape pen or a vaporizer and stoners keep tweeting and emailing us about how to make one. Plus many vaporizers are expensive, man. Sure there are cheap vaporizers our there. Those things are great. But some stoners like a challenge and dislike spending money on a vaporizer. So they’d rather just use some ordinary household objects and McGuyver one.
In case you’re wondering what’s a vaporizer? Basically a vaporizer is just a simple device that heats marijuana to a temperature great enough to transform its THC, or those little crystals you see coating the bud, into a vapor. Bonus? Not only is vaping safer than smoking because there’s no cancer-causing combustion involved—it leaves you with usable bud after each session. Since there’s a bit of THC remaining in that already vaped bud (AVB) and since it’s not charred it won’t taste like shit you can re-purpose it. Save up your already vaped bud nd use it to make THC e liquid for your vaporizer pen or use it to make some cannabutter.
Dry herb vaporizer parts
To make your new vaporizer you are going to need the following ordinary household objects:
- a light bulb
- a mustard bottle lid or 2 liter soda bottle cap
- a pen or surgical tubing
- a knife
- duct tape
Okay, man. Take your time. Making a homemade vaporizer isn’t rocket surgery but it does involve using a knife and a glass light bulb.
Carefully, and we mean carefully cut a hole into the metal bottom of the light bulb. Don’t cut yourself and don’t crush the light bulb, man. Once you’ve got that fucker splayed open like a Tauntaun rip out it’s metal guts. You need a n empty light bulb, dude. So clean it all out—including that powdery residue.
Next disassemble that pen if you don’t have any surgical tubing. Strip it down until you’ve got nothing but a hollow tube. You could also use straws, but you know, pens are a li’l classier. You might want to cut the top off your pen to increase airflow.
Let’s move on to the mustard. Grab that mustard cap. Now lift up on the lid and just rip it right off like it’s Donald Trump’s head. Because it’s useless, man. Now jam the pen in the hole so you’ve got something to inhale through. Next carve another hole with a knife so you’ve got a carb to exchange air. That second hole is optional of course. If you’ve got a 2-liter bottle cap just do the same thing—cut a hole into it and jam a pen or piece of tubing into it.
Now drop a little dry herb in your nearly finished dry herb vaporizer. Not too much weed. And make sure that your weed is pretty evenly ground up. You might want to use a weed grinder, man. Next place that mustard lid right over the open end of the light bulb. If it doesn’t fit well just secure it with a little duct tape.
Using your dry herb vape
Fire up a flame right under the bud. But don’t be lazy, man. Keep it moving. Using your new vape is like making popcorn on the stove top—you’ve gotta keep things moving. You don’t want to burn the bud. That defeats the whole purpose of making a vaporizer. Just keephearting your bud slowly for about fifteen to twenty seconds. Then start to inhale. You should taste the vapor well before you’ll see it.
No. Your new DIY light bulb vaporizer is not going to fill up with milky-white vapor like a Volcano vaporizer bag, dude. But you will get stoned if you take your time. And yes. You do like like a crack head smoking out of that thing. In fact there are a lot of vapes for sale online, man. You should probably just go by one.
