How to Put Marijuana, Concentrates, and THC Liquids in an Electronic Cigarette

Note: The following information has been provided for educational purposes only. Please consult your local laws before attempting any of the projects described below.  

Some of the most frequently asked questions we hear are:

  • Can you put marijuana in an electronic cigarette (e-cig)?
  • Can an electronic cigarette vaporize marijuana?
  • Can I use my electronic cigarette with concentrates, waxes, and oils? 

The answer is yes, yes, and yes. This guide will explain how you can use electronic cigarette components with dry herbs, concentrates, and THC e-liquids to create a personal vaporizer that will allow you to medicate on the go without breaking the bank.

Option 1: Using Marijuana in an Electronic Cigarette

What You’ll Need:

  • An electronic cigarette battery with eGo threading (such as the eGo-Twist or Vision Spinner)
  • A dry herb cartridge

If you’d like to smoke dry herbs, then all you need is an eGo-compatible e-cigarette battery and a dry herb cartridge. For best results, we recommend using a variable voltage battery so that you can fine-tune the temperature to your liking. Please note that all vape pen herb cartridges will combust your herb, not vaporize it. A dry herb cartridge attachment will allow you to turn your e-cigarette into an electric pipe (or e-blunt) with ease. 

Pros:

  • Work with dry herbs
  • Easiest “smoke on the go” solution

Cons:

  • Since it combusts the herb, it will not be as discreet or stealthy as a vaporizer

Option 2: Using Oils, Waxes, and Other THC Concentrates in an Electronic Cigarette

What You’ll Need:

If you prefer to vape hash oil, wax, budder, shatter, BHO, full-melts, or any other form of THC concentrate, then you’ll need to complement your e-cigarette battery with a concentrate cartridge or glass globe attachment. Depending on your preferences, there are a few different ways to build an e-cigarette setup that will allow you to vape concentrates:

  • I want something stealthy: Buy a 510 thread e-cigarette battery and a V2 oil cartridge, or buy our Micro Vape Kit which includes both. This setup is the most discreet way to enjoy concentrates on the go.
  • I want maximum capacity: Buy a variable voltage eGo e-cigarette battery and a Mega V2 oil cartridge. The Mega V2 holds over 1 gram of concentrates, making this one of the heaviest hitting concentrate pen setups on the market today.
  • I want to see my clouds: Buy a variable voltage eGo e-cigarette battery and a Glass Globe. This is a great choice for people who are used to dabbing using an oil rig and would like to see the clouds they’re creating. 

Pros:

  • Best combination of power and portability -- big hits in a small package
  • Vaping concentrates produces less smell than burning herbs, so it's more discreet

Cons:

  • Requires access to THC concentrates

 

Option 3: Using THC E-Liquids and Cannabis Tinctures in an Electronic Cigarette

What You’ll Need:

THC E-Liquids (also known as tinctures) combine the flavor and convenience of e-liquids with the potency and portability of concentrates. If you’re a medical marijuana patient in California, you can buy pre-filled tincture cartridges from our partners, or you can make your own tinctures using the instructions here (disclaimer: we have not independently verified the instructions here; follow at your own risk). 

Pros:

  • Because vaping tinctures does not produce much smell, this method provides for maximum stealth and discretion
  • You can create your own custom flavor blends 

Cons:

  • Less potent than pure concentrate cartridges
  • May require some DIY effort

 

Option 4: Using Pre-Filled Medicated Cartridges in an Electronic Cigarette

What You’ll Need:

  • A medical marijuana prescription in the state of California
  • An electronic cigarette battery with eGo threading (such as the eGo-Twist or Vision Spinner)
  • A pre-filled medicated cartridge

If you’re a medical marijuana patient in California and you’re not interested in going the do-it-yourself route, you can purchase pre-filled medicated cartridges from one of our partners. This is the easiest way to vaporize concentrates and tinctures using your existing e-cigarette setup. 

Pros:

  • Easiest way to vape concentrates and tinctures
  • Pre-filled cartridges are available in a variety of strains and flavors

Cons:

  • Only available to medical marijuana patients
