One of the main benefits of herbal vaporizers over traditional smoking methods is that they can be highly discreet is used properly, allowing you to enjoy cannabis in places that you wouldn’t normally be able to. If stealth is a primary concern for you, then these helpful tips below should help you maximize stealth with your vaporizer.
If you haven’t already purchased a vaporizer, then it is important to take stealth into considering while making a purchase decision. Plug-in vapes such as the Extreme Q generally take up quite a bit of space and can’t easily be hidden after use, making them a poor choice for those who must keep their vaporizer hidden while not in use. Instead, I recommend purchasing a portable vaporizer. Portables are much smaller, and can easily be hidden away when not in use. Furthermore, portables can be taken with you on the go. If you plan to use a vaporizer in a public area, make sure to be aware of your surroundings and use your judgement to decide whether or not vaporizing in that location is a good idea.
Some vaporizers can produce large vapor clouds, and these clouds can create some smell. Although not comparable to the strong aroma produced by smoking marijuana, this smell can still cause problems if you’re in a small area such as a dorm. To help minimize smell, try taking smaller hits as well as ghost your hits. You can also build a sploof and blow exhaled vapor into that which will also help to reduce smells.
Also make sure to use an airtight stash case (such as the CVault) to store your herb while not in use. Oftentimes fresh herb will smell strongly on its own, so keeping it in a stash cash will ensure that no aromas leak out into the surrounding area. Additionally, make sure to keep your vaporizer fairly clean as resin buildup on glass parts can also produce a faint aroma.
As long as you are careful and don’t exhale massive vapor clouds, you should be able to keep stealth to a maximum, especially with a portable vaporizer. Also make sure to keep your glass clean and your bud stored away and enjoy vaporizing!
