Although there are both plastic and metal vaporizers, their quality varies. Plastic, unsurprisingly, is often associated with cheap items. Experts also tend to avoid products that are very successful on the market but contain plastic elements. Aluminium, on the other hand, tends to be a popular option among the best vaporizers on the market, but that is not to say that there are no cheap metal options. The portable vaporizers mouthpieces of the cheapest models are usually made of plastic, and those of the most sophisticated devices are made of glass. When it comes to the weed chamber, is usually made of ceramic or similar heat-resistant material. But it’s not uncommon to see quality materials in affordable options, so research on each brand is recommended.

The bowl is likely under the mouthpiece, so unscrew it and fill it with crushed weed. Make sure you don’t overfill or compact it, as this could negatively affect the experience.

After screwing the mouthpiece back on, turn on the device usually by pressing the main button several times. Next, bring the vaporizer close to your lips if heating is instantaneous, or wait until it reaches the right temperature.

Place the mouthpiece between your lips, press the button if available, and inhale slowly and evenly. If you are a beginner, the inhalation should not last more than four or five seconds. A longer puff might make you cough, and a shorter one might produce negligible vapour.

After a few puffs, you may need to refill the bowl. To do this, unscrew the nozzle, empty the contents of the bowl into an ashtray, and repeat the previous steps.

The more you use it depending on what the manual says, the more often you’ll need to clean it. Make sure you don’t skip this step. Accumulated dirt could permanently damage the device.
