Make a DIY vaporizer

Making your own DIY vaporizer is quite complicated Рyou 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.

D.I.Y Alcohol Vaporizer

Vaporizing alcohol is a fairly new form of alcohol administration; it involves heating the alcohol until it begins to evaporate at around 78 Celsius or 173 Fahrenheit. When the alcohol reaches this temperature, vaporization occurs. D.I.Y alcohol vaporizers do exactly this. Ethanol, which is the type alcohol contained in most alcoholic beverages, is released as a vapor. Ethanol is produced by the fermentation of sugars by yeast and is basically the stuff that gets you drunk.

Home-made Alcohol Vaporizers

There are products on the market already that are specifically designed to vaporize alcohol: the Vape shot and Vaportini to name a couple. These products are custom made to heat and release alcohol as a vapor ready for inhalation. They are pretty novel at parties and make for some great fun. The Vaportini is a very simple design. It consists of a pint glass, a glass condensing globe and a heat source (e.g. a tea light or candle). They are very reasonably priced and probably safer than making your own. They make pretty good gifts and can be lot’s of fun if used properly. You can replicate the Vaportini and its components in the method shown below.

However, you can quite easily make a D.I.Y alcohol vaporizer at home – all you need is: a glass(preferably a pint glass), a tea light candle, a knife or fork, a straw, a jam jar and something to make a hole in the top of the jam jar lid. Oh and alcohol of course! Something strong – I like to use vodka or a nice white rum personally. If this is to complicated see the beer can vaporizer its by far the quickest and easiest method.

Although making an alcohol vaporizer is cheap and pretty easy to do with things you have lying around the house, it really makes sense if you have a spare 50 bucks just to order direct from Vaportini. At least this way you know 100% you are gonna end up with a product that works and is designed to do the job. Please note I am not affiliated with Vaportini in any way, I do not work for them and I think if you have the practical skill you can easily improvise a device to vape alcohol. Vaporizing times is not currently monetized in anyway. If you want to buy a Vaportini click the pic below.

6 Steps to make an alcohol vaporizer

Step 1: Make a hole in the jam jar lid, just big enough for the straw to fit through.
Step 2: Put a shot or two of alcohol in the jam jar.
Step 3: Put the jam jar lid back on the jam jar.
Step 4: Light the tea light and place at the bottom of the pint glass.
Step 5: Put the knife or fork inside the pint glass and insert the alcohol filled jam jar in to the pint glass. (The knife allows air to be pulled in to keep the candle burning).
Step 6: Heat to around 78c/173f or until you can see the vapor forming in the jar and inhale.

It is important that you make the hole in the jam jar lid before heating, otherwise it could explode! Remember alcohol is very flammable.

If you want an easier method just put some alcohol in an empty beer bottle or beer can. Heat the beer can or bottle until you see vapor, then stick a straw in and suck the vaporized alcohol up. Don’t drink too much as alcohol poisoning can be very serious!

How to inhale alcohol vapor

To inhale the alcohol vapor is very simple, you inhale the alcohol through a straw once the vapor has been formed. The Vaportini comes with a glass straw because if you use a cheap plastic straw it may melt. To inhale the alcohol vapor simply poke the straw into the alcohol vapors and draw in as much as you want. You can tell when the alcohol vapor is ready to inhale; as you will see it start to re-condense on the sides of the glass that the vapor is formed in. Take care though inhaling alcohol can be dangerous, the dangers of inhaling alcohol are outlined in the next paragraph.

Vaping alcohol hazards!

FIRE!!! If you have a bunch of drunk people inhaling alcohol vapor over a naked flame, you don’t have to be that smart to realize that it could be dangerous. A nudge from a friend or passing out during inhalation of the alcohol vapour could lead to serious burns. The danger is enhanced as ethanol’s flame is almost invisible in bright natural light but if its dark you will clearly see your friends face on fire!

If you are going to try and vape alcohol be careful! Even if you have spent money on buying an alcohol vape or made your own alcohol vaporizer. I guess though it is the risk you take if you wan’t to try and vape alcohol, you should realize that their are risks and not only from burns.

Alcohol vape poisoning

If you vape to much alcohol quite simply you will die. Alcohol poisoning occurs when you consume too much alcohol. If you drink too much alcohol your body has a way to cope with this and I am sure most of you are familiar with it, simply you throw up. However this is not fool proof and if you drink too much alcohol you can still die. There are also other ways you can die, choking on you own vomit or an accident related to being so out of control of your body are other ways.

The thing is, when you vape alcohol your body can not regurgitate the inhaled alcohol, as it by-passes your stomach. This can easily lead to some form of alcohol poisoning. Alcohol poisoning is not always deadly but it can damage your body in various ways. Alcohol poisoning has a detrimental affect on your liver, kidneys,stomach,brain and eyes to name a few and no long term research has been carried out to the affect it has on your lungs when inhaled. So basically alcohol poisoning is pretty bad for all of your vital organs and no one knows what will happen long term if you vape alcohol.
