Winter Herbal Vaping Tips

Winter Herbal Vaping Tips

Posted by David Nadel on 5th Jan 2019

Even if you love the winter season, vaping your dry herb outdoors in the cold weather can be quite unpleasant. Especially if it's snowing out, vaping can feel like quite a chore during this time of year. 

Sadly, not all of us have the luxury of simply vaping inside once the weather gets cold. Some of us live with people who don't appreciate the particularly strong aroma of herb. 

The good news is that there are some ways to enhance your vape sessions during the chilly months of the winter season. It's important that you understand how cold weather affects your hardware and your supply. ‘

Fortunately for you, we've created an easy guide to wintertime vaping.

Keep Your Battery Warm

It's extremely important that you don't let your vaporizer's battery get too cold during the chilly winter months. A battery that's too cold will struggle to deliver the power that's required in order to properly heat your herb. 

Batteries depend on the fast movement of electrons in order to power your device. When these electrons are exposed to cold air, they move at a much slower pace. This requires the battery to work harder in order to properly heat your coil. As a result, your battery's capacity can decrease dramatically. Eventually, your vaporizer can actually become damaged beyond repair. 

Never leave your vaporizer outdoors when the weather is cold. This will help you avoid freezing your battery. It's best to store your entire vaporizer setup in a warm place when not in use. 

Don't Let Your Herb Get Too Cold

Your herb also needs to stay relatively warm. If it's exposed to dry, freezing air, its chemical composition can actually change, meaning that it won't provide you with the same effects. Plus, cold herb requires more power to heat. This can be very taxing on your vaporizer. 

Another problem that you might face during the winter months is your herb getting too dry. Once it's become too dry, it can vape very harshly, causing throat irritation.

If you have a habit of leaving your herb outside or in your car, make a point to bring it inside when the weather is cold. Try opting for a humidifier to prevent it from drying out indoors.

Keep Your Lips Hydrated

If your vaporizer has a metal mouthpiece, it probably gets very cold during the winter months. Pressing your lips repeatedly against this mouthpiece can be anything but pleasant. 

Even worse, the cold metal can cause your lips to become dehydrated, giving them a cracked, chapped and dry appearance. Luckily, some moisturizing lip balm can help. 

Lower Your Wattage Level to Keep Your Clouds Discreet

Because of how cold air interacts with water vapor, your clouds will probably appear much bigger when you're vaping outdoors during the winter season. However, if you're trying to be discreet while you vape, you might not see this as a good thing. 

To compensate for the cloud-enhancing effects of the cold winter air, simply lower your wattage level.

Don’t Let the Winter Season Stop You

By following this guide, you won't have to sacrifice those beloved vaping sessions just because the weather is cold. These tips will help you properly maintain your device and your supply all winter long while getting the most satisfaction out of each and every hit.
