Many of my friends jumped on the portable vaporizer craze by buying the PUFFiT Vaporizer, but a few of them were confused by the operation of the unit. They told me things like “Bob, I love the look of this thing, but damned if I can’t get a huge rip from it.” So this post is for all you PUFFiT-eers out there who love the sleek and stylish look but are worried about wasting your weed.

My advice for pleasant puffing:

1. GRIND! GRIND! GRIND! – If you just stick whole buds in there, you’re not maximizing the ingredients of your herb. The finer you pulverize your ganja, the more THC and CBD you can activate.

2. Keep it loose – Pack the PUFFiT chamber loosely with your dry blends. Most of the time when someone says they aren’t getting good results it’s because they have loaded the herb chamber tightly like they would a classic water pipe or dugout. It’s the opposite with weed vaporizers, especially the portable kind.

3. Breathe Easy – Don’t treat this thing like an asthma inhaler, okay? Just inhale gently and slowly once the green light goes on and you’ll get a nice tasty cloud. You can even take short little sips rather than large rips.

4. Clean Early, Clean Often – Before and after loading the herb chamber, be sure to dust out the chamber for any residue from any previous sessions. Sometimes the already-vaped-bud (“AVB” to old pros) will cake to the inside of the screen, thereby preventing optimal airflow.

So there you have it. If you try these hints and you’re still having issues, please feel free to leave your questions in the comments below and I will do my best to help you get the most out of your PUFFiT.
