Make a DIY vaporizer

Making your own DIY vaporizer is quite complicated – you need a power source, electrical wire, a hot plate or atomiser and a way to inhale the vaped substance. A pipe or something will do to vape. In all honesty if you are planning to vape cannabis or e-liquid you would be much better off buying a cheap vaporizer and using that instead of potentially wasting your bud.

If making a fully working DIY vaporizer is seeming a bit too complicated, there are easier ways. Unless of course you are a techy person and fancy taking a toaster apart and using the heating elements; it’s up to you.

You can vape cannabis resin and bud using a cheap standard e-liquid vaporizer, weed is not the only substance you can vape. It’s a case of trial and error really to learn which other substances you can vape (you might break a vaporizer or two in the process – be warned).

Homemade weed vaporizer

Well, the best way to vape weed is obviously through a custom made product, there are many vaporizers to choose from on the market. The Herbalizer and Volcano vaporizer to name a couple, but these products are expensive, often way over $100.

A cheaper alternative is to use an e-liquid kit.

Above are the standard components to vape e-liquid, but you can also use these to vape hash and weed. Make sure there is no e-liquid in the vaping chamber, then put the weed or hash directly onto the hot-plate located on the top of the lithium battery.

So you simply put the weed or hash on the hotplate (the part that the battery heats), then screw the inhalator back on. Once the components are assembled hit the power on the battery and start heating. It takes a while to vaporize so keep the button down. After a few seconds heating you should be able to inhale the vapor and get high!

Homemade vaporizer warnings

When using any electrical equipment there is always danger involved. If you start dismantling household items to make a homemade vaporizer then there is risk involved, electrocution and fire are possible. The safest way to vaporize hash and weed is with specifically made device. The second and cheapest way is to use an e-liquid vaporizer and put hash or weed in it. When vaping hash and weed through an e-liquid inhaler be careful that the battery doesn’t over heat. This could cause the battery to explode and cause injury.

Every time you vape hash or weed through an e-liquid inhaler you should clean it out properly. Using weed or hash in an e-liquid vaporizer will damage the product as they were intended for e-liquid use only.

Vaping hash oil

You should not vape hash oil through an e-liquid vaporizer! It will only work a couple of times before the hotplate is covered and no longer works. The best thing to use is weed or pollen as it doesn’t tend to stick to the hotplate as much. Weed and pollen are easier to clean out of the vaporizer.

E-liquid vaporizers were not intended for this purpose it is possible to vape other substances through them. On some devices you can turn the power and temperature up; these are the best to use if you want to do a cheaper DIY vaporizer.

Alcohol inhaler or vaporizer

Alcohol inhaler, inhalation from alcohol vaporization its a fun way to get drunk. It is a great way to do alcohol with no risk of getting fat. When you vape alcohol no calories are digested. When you drink alcohol the calorific drink enters the body and excess drinking can lead to weight gain.

That is why inhaling alcohol is becoming more and more popular. In order for alcohol vapor to be produced the alcohol needs to be heated to around 78 degrees Celsius. Once it reaches this temperature ethanol vapor is produced which you can inhale. Of course you can’t do this as effectively in a saucepan or a glass; you need a better container.

Making an alcohol inhaler

It’s quite easy to make a simple alcohol inhaler. You can use an old beer can or bottle, put a shot or two of strong alcohol in the can and heat over stove till about 78 degrees Celsius. Once the alcohol vaporizes, stick a straw in and inhale the vapor.

There are more products on the market that allow you to vape alcohol. The Vaportini is an alcohol inhaler, essentially it’s a glass bowl and heat source, like a tea light or candle. Very easy to replicate with household items. Although the Vaportini is way more elegant at parties and it’s much easier to see the alcohol vapor condensing in its crystal ball like globe. The Vaportini comes with everything you need to vape-alcohol and is pretty reasonably priced too. It may be worth spending a little instead of bodging one together out of household items. There are dangers involved when doing this method see DIY alcohol vaporizer for more safety details.

Dangers of alcohol inhalation

Alcohol inhalation like the more traditional drinking methods has dangers; alcohol consumption can cause damage to the body in many ways. Liver, heart and brain damage are common from alcohol abuse. What separates alcohol inhalation from drinking is that with inhalation the body has no chance to process the alcohol. Meaning, 1: you get drunk quicker and 2: if you consume too much you have no way to eject it from your body. i.e. you can’t be sick; there is no alcohol in your stomach to puke up. So alcohol poisoning can occur and take hold very quickly, which could result in loss of sight, kidney failure and death. So remember be responsible when drinking or vaping alcohol. Be careful, have fun.
