How to Avoid Clogging Your 510 Cartridge

Vaping is a popular way to consume THC and CBD products, and 510 cartridges come in a variety of sizes, flavors and strengths. However, if you're not careful, your cartridge can become clogged and unusable. To avoid this, there are a few steps you can take. First, try to avoid leaving the cartridges in cold areas, as this causes the oil to thicken and increases the likelihood that it will clog.

If you're outside during a cold spell or store your vaporizer in a cold place, the oil inside the cartridge is likely to be very viscous or thicker. You can also try heating the cartridge with a hair dryer (lower temperature setting) or rubbing it between your hands to heat the oil and change its viscosity. Second, instead of taking fewer larger hits, take smaller strokes with intermediate rest times. This allows the nozzle to be cleaned effectively.

Smaller blows reduce the amount of time the vapor stays in the nozzle. This helps reduce the chances of condensation building up, since the cooler nozzle is not exposed to hot moisture long enough to create condensation. Third, if you have a vaping battery that is activated with a button, you're much safer from burning yourself dry because your cartridge won't heat up when you inhale without pressing it. Receiving smaller blows and keeping them under 3 seconds greatly reduces the chances of condensation building up. Fourth, if you're using an oil-based cartridge, small amounts of debris can build up in the nozzle, causing a build-up that restricts proper airflow over time and ultimately interrupts it completely (this results in a smoothie on the face).

When the air flow holes are located in the threading area, you should refrain from screwing the cartridge too tightly. Finally, if you've tried all of these steps to repair your clogged vape cartridge to no avail, your last resort is to disassemble the pen. Prepare the coil by taking “dry blows” from the cartridge without the battery and blowing gently into it. At Douglasdale Cannabis we offer a huge selection of 510 indicas, sativa and hybrid cartridges from favorites such as Spinach, Good Supply, General Admission and more, as well as ready-to-use Pax Era vaporizers.
