What Do You Put in a Vape Pen?

The best vape for a person depends on their personal preference. Put some research into your first vaporizer. What works for one person may not work for another. 

Some vape pens take dry herb, wax, e-liquids, or oils. Other special vape pens take multiple types of wax, oil, etc. Knowing what type of vape you have is important. Pay special attention to their features before buying them. Understanding the different materials and how to smoke them is important.

Putting the wrong material in a vape can ruin the vape. The materials that certain vapes take depends on the chamber or coil. High-heat chambers may burn away the benefits of dry herb. Other vapes may not burn hot enough for wax.

In this article, we will explain some different types of vapes. We will go over the materials for each type of vaporizer and its main features. Deciding on your vaporizer is hard, so we hope to make it easier with these explanations. 

Wax Vape Pens

Wax Vape Pens

Wax vapes are loaded with thick nectar, so they require a special type of chamber. These types of vapes have higher heat, and the higher the heat, the better the wax pulls. Filling these types of vapes is complicated compared to others. You need more tools to load a wax vape pen. They must also be refilled more often.

This makes wax vapes a potentially expensive option for the regular vaping enthusiast. A portable wax vape is the most convenient because of its size and ease-of-use. There are also dab rings and nectar collectors. Many enthusiasts enjoy the portable option, and those types of vapes are rarer.

Oil Vape Pens

Oil Vape Pens

An oil vape pen is the most convenient option on the market. Most of them come with prefilled cartridges for on-the-go changes. On top of that, a lot of models are used with the click of a button. Vaping enthusiasts enjoy this convenient option for portable use.

If you have a vape without refill cartridges, then refilling them with additional liquid is simple. Use a drip tool to load the oil into the vape. Make sure not to get any oil on the outside of the vape. In less than a minute, your vape is loaded and ready to go.

Oil is easier to get than wax, and it lasts a bit longer. The cartridges fill up higher and they do not burn as quickly. The overall heat is lower than wax vape pens, but many find the material to be a bit weaker.

CBD Vape Pens

CBD vape pens are similar to regular oil vape pens. They refill and hit similarly, and the only difference is in the material. They are often mistaken for each other, but CBD is newer and on the rise. CBD is not the same as regular oil, and either material produces different results. Check with the individual vape to see if you can put oil in the CBD pen.

A CBD vape pen is still portable, and they usually have a simple design. The power button also controls the temperature and when to pull from it. Loading these up is also quick and efficient.

Before CBD got popular, many vaping enthusiasts used oil vapes. Learning about the difference in oil and CBD is important before deciding between the two.

E-Liquid Vape Pens aka E-Juice Vape Pens

E-Liquid Vape Pens aka E-Juice Vape Pens

An E-Juice vape pen takes a special material called e-liquid. In design and use, they are more or less the same as CBD pens. Most versions of e-liquid contain nicotine and vegetable glycerine. EJuice is thicker than CBD oil, so mixing one material in the wrong type of vape might damage it. 

Many cigarette smokers replace their habit with vaping. EJuice vape pens are meant to replace cigarettes and lessen the need for smoking.

Disposable Vape Pens

Disposable Vape Pens

For a quick, cheap option, some vaping enthusiasts go for disposable vape pens. They come with a set amount of oils and liquids etc. There are no manual refilling options. Instead, the vape is thrown away when it runs out. They are usually compact and discreet.

Disposable vape pens are one of the easiest to use. Many of them do not even have a power button. You simply pull directly from the vape to get your results. Once they run out of juice, toss them in the trash.

These types of vapes are also called hybrids. They come with multiple coils and heating chambers. Adding these features is more expensive, but it allows for the combination of oil, wax, or dry herb. The type of hybrid is determined by the coil and wattage.

The different materials each have their optimal temperatures. Wax and oil require higher temperatures, and dry herb works best at lower temperatures. Because of this, many hybrids have a wide range of temperatures. Knowing the best temperature for each material gives enthusiasts the best-vaping experience.
