A wax pen is a tool that gives you the ability to dab. It has an atomizer and heating coil in the device, which you use to vaporize your wax with. You can get a variety of different cartridges for your device, including ones designed for different substances like THC or CBD oils.
If you decide on using cartridges with THC, it’s important to remember that they should never be used indoors because they have become too popular in recent years among drug cheaters who want to get high at school or work. I’ll show you how to make a wax pen.
1. Create Your Design
You’ll need a design, and some means of implementing it on the device. You should take some time to think about what effect you want the wax to have on your body before doing this next step. Take time to do this because once you start using it, the device will be a part of your life for quite some time.
Think about what effects you want to achieve from using the pen. Remember that your pen can help you achieve different things than just getting high, so keep this in mind as well when designing your project and specific effects you are trying to achieve with it.
2. Attach Your Design to your Pen
Next, you will need to attach your design onto the device in a way that allows it to work properly once it’s activated. You can do this by using tape, the bottom of a pen or some other means of adhering the design to your device without damaging it. I recommend using a pen because they are typically made of plastic or metal and so won’t damage the device mechanically.
This will ensure you can use them for years to come without needing to replace them or even work on them so long as they are cared for properly. Sometimes pens leave behind stickers that can be used as an adhesive with another tool. If you fail at finding a proper adhesive, you can use any of the pen caps from the device that has a sticky substance on them.
3. Add your Oils/Cartridges
Next, you need to add your oils or cartridges to the device. Most wax pens come with a cartridge already attached to them. Just remove it and put in the new one if yours has an extra one included with it. If you are using a cartridge designed for THC, be sure to use it outside because these are used often by drug users at schools and work. After this, you’ll need to use some oil to fill the reservoir at the bottom of the device if one is included or if not, use some wax.
4. Power On your Device
Now that everything is ready to go, you need to power on your device. To do so, turn the firing button on it. When doing this, keep in mind that some devices require you to press it a couple times before they “turn on” in order for it to connect with the atomizer inside of it that heats up your oil/wax and sends clouds of vapor out of the mouthpiece.
5. Take your first Puffs of Vape
After some time, it will start to heat up the oil or wax inside of the tank or cartridge. You’ll notice that the oils inside will start to turn brownish in color as they are vaporized and heated up. When you see this begin, take a draw from the mouthpiece. As you inhale, think about what you want to achieve by using your pen and then hold your breath for a few seconds before exhaling. Do this until the oils run out and then either refill or replace them with new ones if they need replacing after some time has passed.
6. Clean Your Device
I recommend cleaning your device regularly after a few uses. Once cleaned, this will ensure that you don’t get a buildup of oils or other substances inside the tank or cartridge. To do this, you will need to take everything apart and use some alcohol to clean the parts individually. This will help you keep your pen in good condition and working well for years to come. Remember that it is important to keep the mouthpiece as clean as possible so that it doesn’t become blocked by too much vapor. If this happens, not only will it be annoying, but it can actually wreak havoc on your device by forming an air pocket inside of it. Once this occurs, the device will stop working properly.
7. Wax Pen maintenance
Also, when using your pen, you’ll need to keep a lot of things in mind to get the best possible experience from it. First and foremost, never use it indoors because this can result in everyone smelling like pot at your job or school. Don’t use it without sunscreen either because your device can break if you launch hot wax onto your skin without some protection and things like that are bad for health overall. If you are going to use it on your skin, be sure to use some lotion and prevent burning.
8. Be careful with the mouthpiece
The mouthpiece on a wax pen can get pretty hot, so take care not to touch the top of it when it’s been used for a while. You can even singe your fingers if you touch it for too long during a session because of this. If you want to keep this from happening, wrap some tape around your mouthpiece before you use your device so that its metal exterior doesn’t burn your lips or fingers if they meet it for too long.
9. Only use the right amount of oils/wax
I suggest only using a small amount of oil at a time when you are first getting started with a new pen. This is because you’ll need to learn how much to use and what amount will be too much for you to handle before going overboard. There is not really any way to avoid this because it will vary from person-to-person, but you can prevent accidents when this occurs by keeping an eye on the device and removing the cartridge if too much oil starts coming out of it.
