According to some users, vaping offers a more forgiving and somewhat safer alternative to weed smoking. However, an even better advantage of vaping weed is that you can enjoy the flavors you want. In fact, you can learn how to make THC vape juices from the comfort of your home. Wondering just how you can do so? Our guide can walk you through the process.
Vape juice refers to the liquid used inside a vaporizer. THC vape juice comes in the form of a liquid concentrate of cannabis packed with THC, cannabinoids, terpenes, and flavonoids. The components inside the liquid concentrate are typically extracted from the marijuana plant. But, as the name suggests, THC vape juice contains a high THC concentrate amount.
The THC concentrate used in THC vape juice comes in a choice of three common forms, i.e., carbon dioxide extracted THC, liquid THC, or tincture. In addition to the marijuana plant extract, vape juice contains a blend of water, food-grade flavoring, glycerin, and sometimes nicotine.
Using THC vape juice to get your weed hit allows you to enjoy the same effects you would get from smoking it. It’s just like you are smoking a joint with a high THC strain! Thus, when you vape, you will get high and experience similar effects.
Some of the common effects include euphoria, hunger, drowsiness, and even distortion of time. Similarly, the intensity of the effects depends on the concentrated potency, dosage (how many puffs you take), and of course, your makeup. Effects of THC depend on your age, gender, chemical makeup, and even your tolerance level.
You can buy THC vape juice from any legal cannabis store or online. However, if you want to, you can also DIY your weed vape juice.
Here’s a simple guide on how to make THC vape juice using the CO2 extraction process;
You can opt to make vape juice with a liquid, thin, or thick consistency. We’ve shared two methods to outline each option. The first step always involves decarboxylation, despite the consistency you are going for. During this step, you need heat to release the carbon dioxide from the plant.
Readymade, commercially available weed vape juices come with clear instructions on how to dose them. But, the same cannot be said for DIY homemade THC vape juice. In this case, you need to learn how to dose your vape juice. The easiest way to do so is through trial and error. As if you are trying weed for the first time, try using small amounts of your vape juice. Since you're using concentrated THC, the potency will be high.
So, start with small doses and work your way up until you find the ideal dosage you can tolerate. After all, using a vape pen to get your cannabis hit doesn't require you to use all the concentrate at a single session. So, you can always take your hits and save the rest for later. After some time, you will know exactly how much you need for that perfect high!
