What is a Box Mod Vape?

Box Mod Vapes are essentially vaporizers with advanced features and high capacity batteries for long life and extended power range to accommodate large tanks for e cig juice and the large puffs that many serious vapors chase after. It was the e cig market that first popularized box mod vaporizers but because they are great for travel with their big batteries and because they are powerful and will operate with numerous attachments for cannabis, they are growing in popularity with marijuana users as well. You can find attachments for using dry herb, wax as well as THC/ CBD oils and they are compatible with almost all 510 thread cartridges.

Why choose a box mod vape?

  • The big removable batteries make it easy to replace or upgrade the batteries. You can also keep a spare battery charged making it great for long trips and extended use.
  • The ability to have such a wide variable wattage range allows for use with large tanks with custom wrapped coils for cloud chasers. But also allows you to lower the wattage to use with smaller cartridges and coils.
  • Box Mods also offer maximum compatibility with attachments when compared with other types of vaporizers. Not only are many attachments made for them exclusively, most others will work with box mods if you adjust the settings appropriately.

What attachments work with box mods?

  • Dry herb attachments
  • Wax atomizers (Coils)
  • Tanks  
  • 510 thread cartridges

What are the drawbacks of box mods?

  • Can be expensive
  • Learning curve to use them
  • Can burn up atomizer if too high wattage

How To Smoke Shatter, Dabs & Wax

Learn various ways to smoke Shatter, Dabs & Wax today on Cannabasics episode 100

Let’s take a look at several ways to smoke shatter, wax and rosin along with the pros & cons of Dab Rigs & Nails, Dab Pens, Vaporizers, Enails and Nectar Collectors.

Dab Rigs and Nails

Perhaps the OG of ways to do dabs is the trusty dab, or oil, rig fitted with titanium nail or quartz banger, and it is truly one of the most effective ways to do a dab. You’ll get a huge hit instantly and usually get the most out of your wax too as it is fully vaporized in seconds. Dab rigs might be one of the most effective ways of doing dabs but there are drawbacks. Such as needing a torch and gas to heat the nails and also a recovery time to re-heat the nail for the next dab. Also when you introduce open flame and exposed high heat into the process you also sacrifice safety to some degree.

Dab Pens

Dab pens on the other hand are probably one of the safest ways to do dabs. These types of pens usually use quartz, ceramic or metal coils to heat the wax enclosed inside of a sealed glass or metal cap. These types of pens can be effective and give big hits but usually will take several puffs to smoke the same amount of wax as doing a single dab off of a nail. Another common drawback to wax pens is that the un-vaped wax builds up and they require constant cleaning to keep functioning properly.


Some vaporizers that are made for dry herb can also be used to vaporize wax and rosin too. These devices usually provide a cup or pod that inserts into the dry herb heating chamber to vaporizer the wax.These types of devices can be very convenient but cons are that they often do a mediocre job of vaporizing wax as they lack the required heat. And the small pods can be cumbersome and leaky so it can be hard to keep the heating chamber clean for dry herb.

Nectar Collectors

Nectar Collector or vacuum systems could be considered the dark horse of dab methods. These types of devices use a heated tip on the end of a handheld device that you dip directly into the wax. There are both electric collectors as well as those requiring external heat source such as a torch. One big advantage of the collector type rig as that you can get huge hits when dipping the tip directly into the wax. But they have a learning curve and can be a little awkward to use.


Perhaps the biggest favorite among dabbers is the E-Nail. E-Nails are very similar to the standard titanium nail on an oil rig with one key difference. The E-Nails have an electronic control center to set a precise temperature and a heating element that will keep the nail continuously heated and ready for a dab. The pros of E-Nails are that it’s ready for a dab any time it’s on, you can do dabs back to back without reheating the nail. They may also arguably be safer than using open flame and a clearly more convenient than needing a secondary heating torch. Cons are that they usually require a power source to operate so may not be as portable as the other methods. And also it’s so convenient to use, you might find yourself smoking through your wax very quickly and passing out on the couch very early.


Whichever method you choose, dabbing wax or rosin, so long as it is free of impurities, is actually healthier than smoking cannabis flowers. By not smoking or vaporizing the plant materials you are clearly putting less unnecessary chemicals into your body. And by taking concentrated doses you are required to smoke less frequently, not to mention that the time it takes to do a dab is far quicker than the time it takes to smoke a joint, bowl or especially a blunt.

But if you are an everyday dabber like myself, a nice e-nail set up would likely be the way to go. But if you only occasionally dab and prefer to vaporizer, then a 3-in-1 vape pen that does wax too might be satisfactory. Or an inexpensive wax pen might be even better or perfect for the beginner  just looking to dabble in wax, shatters and rosin concentrates.

How To Use A Portable Dry Herb Vaporizer: Cannabasics #62

When it comes to portable dry herb vaporizers it may seem like pretty much a “no-brainer” on how to use it. You just pack it full, throw it on high and go to town… right? Well that will work I suppose but you might be missing out. There are a few factors that you can consider to insure that you are using your vaporizer and your cannabis to get the best benefit for you.

Choose the correct vaporizer:

There are a couple of main types and several configurations for portable dry herb vaporizers so choosing the right vaporizer for your needs can be one of the biggest factors you want to consider.

  • The two main types of portable vaporizers are Convection or Conduction.  Convection vaporizers such as the Firefly 2 use air to push the heat through the cannabis without actually heating the material directly. The conduction vaporizer, which are far more common, heat the marijuana by wrapping it directly against a heated chamber.
  • Another consideration would be whether you prefer a top loading or bottom loading chamber on your vape. Those such as the PAX 3 here that load into the bottom can offer a cooler and smoother vapor as the long airpath gives the vapor time to cool. But for some vaporizers the long airpath can expose the vapor to unwanted flavors from the travel through the circuitry and plastic of the device. Bottom loading vaporizers may also have a weaker, more diffused exhaled vapor. Top loading vaporizer benefit from the purity of flavor from a short, isolated air path and often provide much larger puffs which many people prefer. The drawback of top loading vaporizers is that the heat of the vapor can be intense and the mouthpiece itself is also more likely to become uncomfortably warm.
  • Metal or ceramic chambers can also make a difference in the flavor and performance of a vaporizer. Metal chambers such as the PAX 3 or LVSmoke Beast can offer great performance and heating times but many prefer the purity of flavor of a ceramic chamber.
  • Many quality devices also offer the choice of a usually plastic, rubber or silicone Standard or an optional glass tube mouthpiece. These glass mouthpieces often provide a cleaner flavor without a real or perceived flavor of plastic or rubber.

My personal favorite configuration is a top loading convection unit with a ceramic mouthpiece  with isolated airpath and glass mouthpiece. That is why I am using the exceptional Eclipse vaporizer from Because this type of vape is the kind I have come to appreciate the most over time for the big hits and pure taste.  

Choose the correct cannabis:

Once you’ve chosen the correct vaporizer for your preference you’ll also have the choice of type of cannabis you prefer.

  • Many people opt for an Indica strain for it’s heavy  relaxation and sedative effects. So if   you’re looking to chill on the couch and watch a movie, you might want an Indica like a heavy OG.
  • But maybe you prefer more upbeat, higher energy effects so you can focus or stay alert. In this case you probably want to opt for a nice Sativa strain such as Jack Herer.
  • And of course you have Hybrid strains that can fall anywhere in-between or even offer some of their own unique effects. So you may find that Blue Dream or Girl Scout Cookies appeals to you.

Properly prepare the cannabis:

Whether using convection or conduction vaporizer or vaping a sativa, Indica or hybrid it is always very important when using a vaporizer to evenly grind your cannabis. This will make sure that airflow is ideal for convection vaporizers and also for conduction units. And for conduction vapes it will help insure that you heat the cannabis more evenly so you have less chance of the dreaded two tone or non vaporized cannabis. Also, make sure you are vaporizing properly cured cannabis that is not moldy or too wet burn in a joint. You don’t want to vape any cannabis you would not be able to smoke.

Choose the correct vaporizing temperature:

Choosing the right temperature can also have a huge effect on your experience with a vaporizer. Not only can you change the flavor and temperature or smoothness of the vapor but you can also maximize the effects you receive by tailoring the temperature settings to your preference.

  • Low Temperature (300° F – 325° F) Great for being able to stay focused and productive with subtly relaxing euphoric feelings.
  • Medium Temperature (325° F – 375° F) Perfect for an elevated mood along with moderate euphoria and enhanced perception
  • High Temperature (375° F – 435° F) More relaxing high with intense euphoria and sedative effect.

And not only does the temperature you choose have an effect on how it makes you feel, but obviously too on how it tastes and smells when vaporizing. You may notice more of the piney and citrus aromas at a lower temperature and a  more acrid popcorn aroma and flavor profile on the higher end.

Adjust and experiment:

Adjust accordingly, try various combinations to dial in the perfect process and temperature for your preferences. Start low and then go high. Or another efficient process is to vaporize your cannabis at a low temperature and then keep your ABV, or Already Been Vaped Cannabis for future use in edibles or tinctures.

However you end up vaporizing you marijuana I think you’ll agree that there are plenty of benefits to vaping over smoking in that not only is it less harmful to your lungs but you can also have more control over how the cannabis makes you feel and how it tastes.
