Tips for Cleaning Your G Pen Portable Vaporizer

G Pen Vaporizer by Grenco Science


The G Pen Portable Vaporizer has completely revolutionized the way I vape. I tell you what, for years I was a forced-air vaporizer guy all the way. You couldn’t pay me enough to try vaping out of something other than my trusty Volcano Vaporizer balloon bag. Then I got my ticket for Coachella and thought, “hmmm it might be difficult to lug that forced-air unit all the way out into the desert.” How would I enjoy my therapeutic herbs discreetly and securely? Enter the G Pen Vaporizer by Grenco Science. It’s a slick, high-quality vape pen for oils or waxes that has a professional fountain pen appearance. Upon arriving at Coachella I realized just how popular vape pens are getting for marijuana users who want to vape discreetly anywhere they go.


One of the coolest things about this vaporizer is that it is incredibly subtle and very easily transported. This is the portable vaporizer for the vapor enthusiast on the go! Ideal for oils, waxes and concentrates, the G Pen contains a rechargeable battery and top quality heating element that will vaporize your oil within 10 seconds. I don’t recommend using ground herbs in the G Pen as it will cause the heating element to clog up. This is best used as an oil vaporizer. The tanks are easily replaceable and cleaning is a breeze if you stick to oils and concentrates.


Simply turn your G Pen Vaporizer Glass Tank upside down on top of an empty Tupperware container or ceramic saucer. Then place your container on the sill of a sunny window. Make sure you don’t do this on a really hot day. Residual oil will drain from your Glass Tank into the container, so you can reuse it if you so desire. Whatever you do, do not attempt to scrape the oil out of the Glass Tank as this can cause breakage.

    Can you soak the tank in rubbing alcohol like a glass pipe? It always works well with glass but I dont know if it would just break the G pen….


    What if the fluid gets hardned and wont get off

    Not loving my G Pen, you have to clean like every two seconds and it really doesnt rip that hard. Dont even think about putting weed in it, it will combust every time. I find one of the better pen for actual herbs is the Pulsar 7, but in all honesty I would just grab a Pinnacle Pro or a Magic Flight launch box, you will be much better off.

    Another good portable unit that not a lot of people know about is the new Vapman vaporizer. It requires a torch so it is a little more work but it will never run out of batteries and hits pretty hard. I think they have a review of it here on this site otherwise just google and check it out for yourself.


    The G Pen is a badass vaporizer but it does require a lot of cleaning. If you want a vaporizer that requires less maintenance I would suggest going with something like the Hot Box vaporizer or the VaporBrothers. Even though both of those are desktop vaporizers they hit really hard and are deserving of a try.
