There are many benefits to vaporizing medical cannabis. Vaporizing offers the most immediate relief to the patient, which keeps blood levels balanced.
Vaporizing activates the medicine in the ground flower or concentrated oil without burning it, so the patient is only inhaling the product and not carcinogens or other toxins associated with smoking. Additionally, since the product is not burned, there is no secondhand smoke.
Due to the concentration of the product, a little will go a long way. The effects of taking a 1-second draw or "puff" will usually last 3-4 hours.
To turn the device on, press the silver button 5 times within 3 seconds. A blue light visible through the vertical site window will flash 3 times. Subsequent pushes of the button will illuminate the blue light while the button is pushed.
*NOTE: If you are using a Trulieve Vape Pen cartridge, screw the gold ring onto the bottom of the cartridge with the notches in the ring facing upward toward the tank of the cartridge to allow airflow into the cartridge properly.
Insert the cartridge into the battery housing completely. The cartridge is retained in the battery by magnetic force.
Begin vaporizing by pressing the silver button while drawing on the mouthpiece of the cartridge. Inhale the vapor into your lungs to properly medicate. Release the button before your draw is complete to insure all vapor is inhaled and no product is wasted.
The air should flow freely through the mouthpiece and a generous amount of vapor should be produced. As the product remaining expires, the flow will be reduced somewhat and condensed vapor residue will begin to build up in the air path. When the cartridge nears expiration, you may experience a brief blockage of the air path when the device is cold. This is normal and will clear as the element heats up. It is beneficial at this point to press the button allowing the element to preheat the oil a second or two before attempting to draw.
To turn the device off, press the silver button 5 times within 3 seconds. A blue light visible through the vertical site window will flash 3 times. Subsequent pushes of the button will NOT illuminate the blue light while the button is pushed. The cartridge is retained in the battery by magnetic force. A gentle tug will break the magnetic attachment and allow the cartridge to be removed.
Charge the unit by attaching the provided micro USB cable into the opening on the wide side of the housing, adjacent to the silver button. A 2amp or higher power supply works best for charging. When charging, a red light will illuminate that is visible through the vertical site window. The red light will go off when the unit is fully charged.
It is best to turn the unit off when not in use. It is also beneficial to store the unit in a vertical position to ensure oil is covering the entrance to the coil (2 small holes at the bottom of the cartridge). This ensures the coil does not run dry.
