Some people that love to vape, really get into the ritual aspect of it. From loading to drawing, the Muad-Dib gives vapers a certain panache. It may be interesting enough to qualify as a conversation piece, but it is the quality of the vape that counts more than anything.
It is made for high quality concentrates, which right there sets it apart from other vape mods that will take any old e-juice or wax.
It also needs a little more involvement in the loading and drawing, so it is not meant to be stealth or discreet.
In fact, it is the opposite of discreet as it will draw some attention and probably have people asking about it.
Health Benefits of a Wax Atomizer
When used properly, wax does have some advantages. Most notably, it leaves behind much less tar and residue. Herb smokers who use pipes or vaporizers will often notice black buildup over time. What they may not realize is that the same material takes up residence in their lungs. Although much of it is expelled through coughing, it still can pose a problem over time. Wax concentrates remove contaminants and impurities, leaving behind clean THC.
A wax tank also happens to be one of the cleanest and safest ways to use wax. While methods like dabbing bring users dangerously close to a heat source, regulated mods offer a degree of protection not afforded by more established methods.
Waxes are much more complex than simple dry herb. The equipment and dosing require a whole new level of expertise. New cannabis users should never try wax concentrates until they are used to the much milder herb option. Those thinking about “graduating” to wax or other concentrates need to consult their dispensary or online supplier for detailed instructions.
Where Can Consumers Buy a Wax Vape Atomizer?
Due to the increasing popularity of both waxes and e-cigarettes, wax vape atomizers are easy to find. They are a common product in some marijuana dispensaries; however, these can be found online in abundance. Vapor Nation, for instance, is a diverse one-stop-shop for wax vape tanks, parts and accessories.
A wax atomizer tank is only as good as the product inside it. The way concentrates are extracted makes a big difference in their overall quality. Customers looking for the purest waxes need to purchase ones that have been obtained through CO2 extraction (equipment pictured above). Put simply, this process uses pressurized carbon dioxide to extract the cannabinoids and terpenes, leaving behind a concentrate that is free of contaminants.
Things to Remember When Using a Wax Atomizer
- Clean it regularly – residue does eventually build up (albeit not as quickly as with dry herb), and can ruin the atomizer.
- Do not exceed the recommended wattage. Doing so could cause the concentrate to burn, or even combust. Refer to the instructions for specific details.
- Start small. Begin with a tiny amount of concentrate and move up from there. Wax delivers a powerful hit, especially in large, high-performance tanks. Exceeding the tolerable limit will ruin the overall experience.
With all of the products available, it is difficult to objectively determine the best atomizer for wax. Considering the diverse nature of user needs, design variations and brands, the “perfect” device for one person could be a terrible choice for someone else. Nonetheless, the above list provides access to a well-rounded set of options for new and advanced users alike.
