Vaporizers are used in place of traditional smoking devices to inhale the natural vapors of your smokables, rather than scorching them and breathing in smoke loaded with carcinogens. Supposedly more “healthy,” vaporizers are understandably expensive and often out of reach to the average smoker. Fortunately, you can learn how to make your own out of common household supplies after the jump.

About This Article

To make a vaporizer from household supplies, you’ll need a small box, a tea candle, a small metal tray, a glass, and a bendy straw. Start by lighting the candle. Then, place it in the middle of the box so it doesn’t catch on fire. Rest your metal tray on top of the box and put your smoking material on it. Cover your tray with an upside-down glass to collect the smoke from your material. Once the glass has filled with smoke, put the small end of your straw between the glass and tray and inhale through the other end. For more tips, including how to make a vaporizer using a heatgun, read on!

Cannabis 101 – Making THC Oil

How to make your own THC liquid? This is a common question that lot of people ask. Doing your own vape juice is always fun and interesting.

Steps to Make Your Own THC Oil for Vaping

THC Oil can be super expensive and costly, but the benefits are so worth it.
Here is a guide on how to make THC Oil for your vape pleasure.

You Will Need:

1. 5-6 grams of high-quality bud
2. Cheese cloth
3. Two large mason jars
4. A large pot for boiling
5. Propylene Glycol
6. High Proof (190+) Grain Alcohol,
7. And a Pyrex bowl (or aluminum foil and a baking sheet). If you want exact measurements, pick up some blunt tip syringes. You will also want to be wearing rubber gloves throughout the process to protect your skin.

Make sure you don’t use rubbing alcohol! Try EverClear or Alcohol instead. You’ll also need a stove-top, of course, and as for your bud, you’ll want to make sure that it’s finely chopped before you begin.

1. Decarboxylate

– Place your finely chopped 5-6 grams of weed (or more if you’re so inclined) into the Pyrex bowl and bake it in the oven at 225-250 degrees F for about 15 minutes. (Alternatively, you can use aluminum foil and a baking sheet to heat up your bud like you would a batch of cookies. When you take them out, they’ll be dry and brownish.)

– The next step is to add the crispy weed to your mason jar, and then pour in the alcohol. (It should be enough to submerge the bud completely. If you want to be exact, use a syringe to add about 24 ML of High Proof Alcohol. You’ll probably want to open a window during this next part to keep your room ventilated and relatively free of vapors.)

– Add about 3.5-4 inches of water to your pot, and then place the mason jar directly inside the pot.
Boil the water to a low boil and stir the bud in the jar constantly. Here you’ll be trying to evaporate some of the excess alcohol. Continue to stir, watching the bud get darker. Once it’s dark, remove the pot from the stove and turn it off. Let it cool.

VERY USEFUL TOOL SET:

2. Strain

After you’ve evaporated some of the excess alcohol from your mixture, it’s time to use your cheese cloth or another item to filter out the plant fibers from your oil. – Cover your second mason jar with the cheesecloth and slowly pour in the mixture from the first mason jar, letting the cloth catch the buds. (It may be very thick and stuck to the bottom of the jar, so use a knife or fork to get it all out. Your bud should be wet and well-saturated.) – Squeeze the cheese cloth with the herb until every last drop is out, straining it into the second mason jar. (It should produce a nice brown liquid. If you are so inclined, let the cheesecloth drip over the second mason jar for an hour or two to get everything out.)

3. Process

– In your second mason jar, now filled with liquid and alcohol, add a bit of water and put the jar back inside the pot. (This time, you will want to boil your concoction until there are about 5 ML of liquid left in the jar. You can use your syringes to measure exactly and make sure you have the right amount.) – The final step is to add 20 MG of Propylene Glycol to your mason jar.
– Remove the jar from the pot.
– Using a syringe, extract the liquid from the jar and store it in your dropper bottles. (You should have about 25 ML of THC oil ready to use.)
