Vape Dabbing is pretty new to the vaping world. This type of dabbing has taken off like a wildfire and continues to gain momentum. Vape Dabbers are not only using their vape pen for wax but also for concentrates and even e-liquid depending on the device that they have purchased. Vape Dabbing is a little more involving than vaping on a dry herb vaporizer, from usage to maintenance. However, the end result is well worth the time and effort!
Types of wax
The first thing that an individual must understand about Vape Dabbing is that there are two different types of waxes on the market. The first type is made from cannabis and has been extracted from the plant using butane. This type of wax typically comes packaged in pre-filled cartridges for use in a vape pen or portable vaporizer like the V2Pro Series 3 and still requires you to apply heat to it so that it can be used in your device. The second type of wax is made from different compounds and contain a variety of products. It can be difficult to know exactly what is in your vaporizer pen and because of this, there are users preferring to use their vaporizers for dry herbs.
The best temperature to dab
The second thing that you will need to understand about Vape Dabbing is that the wax must be heated for the active ingredients to become available for inhalation. The vape pens and portable devices featured on VapeFuse like the V2Pro Series 3 have very limited temperature settings making it difficult at best to get a good dab if you are not using one of our recommended products like the Series 9 Vaporizer or any other device that has an adjustable temperature control feature. Regular users of wax pens have become well versed in how to achieve the best vaping experience.
While there are not any real dangerous risks involved with Vape Dabbing, it is extremely important that you store your wax safely after you have a dab. Because of the importance of temperature control in these devices, the wax should not be left in the pen or vaporizer after it has been heated as it will continue to degrade over time and become hazardous to you and those around you.
This is why there are now special storage units being produced for use with Vape Pens and portable vaporizers that have been designed for this purpose only. That said, there are millions of people who are well versed in temperature control and don’t need a storage container to store their wax in because they have been doing this for a while now.
There are a variety of different ways that you can use your vape pen for wax, however the overall goal is to heat your Vape Wax to a temperature of around 375 degrees Fahrenheit so that it can be vaporized. This will take a bit more time than vaping dry herbs, however it is well worth the wait when you reach the full potential of what even the most basic of wax vaporizer pens can offer.
The best methods that an individual can use when storing their wax are as follows:
The most durable and safest way to store your Vape Wax that you can find is glass. The glass will allow the heat to escape but also preserve the wax for many more years to come.
A ceramic storage container is also a good choice since it will allow the heat to dissipate but also preserve the wax for yet longer.
Plastic containers are an extremely popular choice and will protect your Vape Wax from any chemical changes that might occur over time.
Both stainless steel and titanium are very good choices with the only downside being that they will rust if there is water involved.
While there hasn’t been a lot of scientific studies on Vape Dabbing, there have been quite a few that have been published regarding vaporizing dry herbs.

How to use a vape pen for wax

If you are looking for tips on how to get the best experience using your wax vaporizer pen, here are a few things that may help you:
- Tilt the device downward while applying heat. The excess wax will run into the storage compartment and allow for minimal waste.
- Remove the wick as soon as the vaporizer is hot enough. This allows for even distribution of heat.
- Sweep your mouth from left to right with each pull. The excess wax will fall into the storage area and allow for less waste.
If you have the option of using a dual coil device, use the nail to clean out your herbs before placing them in a new container to be used again. This will allow for quicker vaporization and significantly less waste when compared to using a single coil device like a dry herb vaporizer pen or desktop unit.
Know that there are many different Dabbing tools available that you can use to create your own waxes. The best way for an individual to go about this is by using a low temperature butane torch which you can pick up online for a very reasonable price. There are also kits available where you will need to mix up two different types of waxes together in order to get the best and most potent results.
It’s important for individual users of vape pens to understand the overall process they are going through when loading their pen with wax and dabbing in general. This allows them to maximize their experience while also making sure that they get the most out of each session without wasting anything.
