THC vape pens have allowed cannabis users to enjoy their favorite strains in a discreet, portable format. While these devices offer benefits over other methods of consuming THC—such as edibles or smoking flowers—they can be prone to damage if not properly stored. You must take proper care of your THC Pen and follow some basic guidelines for storing your device.
How Does THC Vape Pen Work?
A THC vape pen is an electronic cigarette that uses a battery to heat a metal coil, vaporizing the oil and turning it into an inhalable mist. Unlike nicotine vapes, this mist can be inhaled through the mouthpiece, where you have to light up the whole device with your thumb.
The battery heats both sides of the titanium or ceramic coil at once, so there’s no need to wait around while it gets hot enough; this means you get immediate vapor whenever you want it, but also faster loss of power if you forget to charge your device overnight! That said, this does mean there’s more risk involved if you’re carrying around loose pieces like screws or rubber rings from e-cigarettes around town (or even at home).
In short, vape pens are also very easy to use; you fill the tank with your favorite oil, screw on the battery and atomizer (or just twist them together if they’re built-in), press a button to heat the coil, inhale through the mouthpiece and enjoy!
Some Storage Guidelines For THC Vape Pens
Here’s what you need to know about how best to store your vape pen so that it lasts for years rather than months:
Don’t leave your vape pen in direct sunlight or any other heat source.
This is pretty obvious, but it’s important to remember that heat can damage your THC vape pen and cause it to break down faster than usual. If you’re going on vacation, store your THC vape pen somewhere with air conditioning or keep it in the fridge so that any heat from being in storage doesn’t break down its components too quickly. Also, be careful not to leave it on a radiator or heating vent when you’re at home—the same goes for leaving it sitting out on a warm surface (like an end table) while you’re not using it because then any internal components will be subjected to higher temperatures over time than they were designed for.
Keep your vape pen away from moisture and humidity.
The most important thing you can do to extend the life of your vape pen is to keep it away from moisture and humidity. If you store your vape pen in a humid environment, it will start malfunctioning after only a few months. Your vape pen will become harder to use, less effective at delivering THC, and could even stop working altogether.
Store your vaporizer somewhere dry whenever possible. If this isn’t an option for you because of where you live or because of how much space there is in your home (for example, if it’s just not feasible for everyone who lives there), then make sure that the area where the vaporizer is being stored has its air conditioning unit so that temperatures remain constant throughout different seasons throughout the year.
If you are going on vacation or traveling with friends and family members, try keeping them inside their containers with desiccants like silica gel packs or potassium chloride tablets inside before closing them up tightly so nothing else can get inside besides moisture-absorbing compounds, which will reduce degradation over time!
You should keep your vape pen out of excessive light.
If you have a THC vape pen, you might be in the habit of leaving it on your nightstand or at work. However, doing so will not help keep the oil inside your vape pen fresh and compelling for as long as possible.
Light from the sun and artificial sources like lamps or overhead lights can degrade THC oil over time. This degradation happens when the THC oil absorbs ultraviolet light from the sun or fluorescent bulbs. UV light breaks down cannabinoids like THC and CBD into their base components (cannabinoids are naturally present in marijuana plants), which can cause them to evaporate quickly if exposed to excessive amounts of UV light over an extended period.
Don’t keep your vape pen in the refrigerator or freezer.
Remember, most vape pens are powered by lithium-ion batteries—the same battery used in all sorts of other devices, like cell phones and portable laptops. These batteries have a temperature range that they function best at, and storing them in extreme cold (like a freezer) can cause damage to the battery itself. This can lead to shortened battery life, even if you’re charging it more often than usual.
The same goes for storing your vape pen in a hot place. While it might be convenient to have your vape pen on hand at all times—especially if you’re using a portable charger while out and about—leaving your device in a hot car or another warm environment can also damage the battery.
Store your vape pen with the cartridge attached.
If you’re not storing your vape pen with the cartridge attached, chances are good that the oil in your pen will dry out over time. This can lead to several unwanted problems: clogs and leaks damage the heating element and battery. The best way to avoid these issues is simply by keeping your cartridge on while storing your device.
Additionally, having it with you at all times will allow for easy refilling when needed—something that could be tricky if you need something right away but didn’t take care of filling up before leaving home!
Many users are concerned about the health risks associated with vaping, but they should be equally concerned with the durability of their vape pens. A poorly designed device can lead to poor performance and a shorter lifespan. Following these simple guidelines and storing your device correctly ensures that it lasts longer than expected.
