Do you want to learn how to turn shatter to vape juice? In this post, we are going to look at the simple preparation of converting shatter to vape juice or e-juice even if you’re home.
A lot of users favor vapor than smoking. Vaporizing cannabis concentrate like shatter is a healthier choice for users. Smoking is harmful because of the chemicals that are directly ingested to your lungs.
Today, many users are ready to mix and prepare their own e-juice. First, let’s look at how e-liquids are different from other pre-filled vape cartridges.
There is no difference at all except that you are the one going to prepare your own e-juice. The e-juice or e-liquid is mixed with cannabis concentrate (shatter, wax, or honey oil) and other compounds.
Preparing your own e-juice provides more customization, control, and convenience. You don’t have to spend a lot because it is cheaper when preparing your own. Converting concentrates is a more discreet way of consuming it without creating much fuzz.
Benefits of Vape Juice:
Vape juice is a more convenient way to take cannabis using a vape pen. You can take it anywhere, anytime without having so much hassle.
How to Start:
Before we go into the details, let’s ensure that your shatter has met the specified concentration or dosage. Make sure that you know its dosage. Most oil solvents should have a 60 to 90 percent THC content.
If you are a beginner, the starting dose for edible marijuana is only 5 to 10 percent. THC and dabs are only for those who are already using it.
Easy Recipe for E-Juice:
- Empty glass dropper bottles
- Latex gloves
- Propylene glycol (PG)
- Vegetable glycerin (VG)
Before combining flavoring, make sure that VG: PG is 50:50 or 80:20. This is a safe ratio when preparing your own cannabis extract.
- 1 gram of hash oil (rosin, wax, or shatter)
- Bottle of an e-juice mix of PG and VG
- 510 thread oil cartridges
- Microwave/ stove
- Syringe/ micropipette
- Use a spoon to flatten your choice of wax, shatter or other hash oil in a ceramic box. Cover it with wax paper.
- Melt the cannabis concentrate. You can use a double boiler or a microwave to melt it.
- Add drops of VG/PG mix and stir for a minute. Make sure that the concentrate and VG/PG are well blended.
- The consistency should be like honey. Let it cool. If the mixture is still thick, add more VG/PG mix to dilute it and achieve the right consistency.
- Get the THC-infused e-juice into the vaporizer or dab cartridges using a syringe.
The infusion is done when you see that the liquid is viscous enough as well as the color remains as the shatter concentrate. When can transfer your infusion in an empty 510-thread cartridge or use your old cartridge.
You’ll find that there is more e-juice left for a gram of shatter concentrate. Make sure to let the cannabis vape juice cool for an hour before consuming it. It ensures that it has achieved the right viscosity.
If you want the e-liquid to be stronger, you can lower down the amount of shatter. Reducing it makes the oil thicker but you’ll notice a stronger effect and the flavor of terpenes is more noticeable.
Keep in mind that the PG is what creates the “hit” in the vape and provides the flavor. VP does the work of vaporization. If you want your liquid to be less harsh, increase the amount of VG than the PG.
There’s a lot of good reasons to prepare your own e-juice at home. If you’re concerned about the preparation, there is little to no smell at all.
It can be done even in a small space like your kitchen. Vaping your own e-juice is a simpler, easier, and safe way to consume cannabis without much fuzz.
Moreover, vaping provides you a discreet and portable way to consume cannabis concentrates. Try this recipe if you are interested in preparing your own e-liquid at home.
You’ll be able to spend less than when buying a prepared one. You’ll also get more liquid that provides you the most savings.
