Pax 3 (Full Review | Pax Vapor Official) is arguably one of the best weed vapes out there. Not many other vapes combine tasteful aesthetic design and intuitive interface functionality into the same package–which is why the Pax vaporizer has been going head to head with the DaVinci IQ for the Best Dry Herb Vaporizer title since its release.
If you’re dropping nearly 300 bucks on a dry herb vaporizer investment, then chances are–you’ll want to know how to get the most out of it. We’ve got you covered! Keep reading for our Pax 3 tips and tricks–from the pros that know!
Grind, Pack and Pack Again
Pax 3 comes with a little quick-start guide–which is great. It states: “A tightly packed Pax is a happy Pax”–words to live by. Not only should you be packing your bud into the Pax oven tightly, but it should be well-ground too.
I recommend a high quality grinder like the SLX grinder in that you’ll need strong teeth to finely grind the herb to the optimal consistency. Doing so, you can compact it in the oven into a little brick and it’ll vape much more effectively, and efficiently.
Use the Half-Pack Lid for Solo Sessions
New to the Pax 3 is the half-pack oven lid, which is awesome for solo sessions–or to share with a partner (assuming you are both light-weights). The half-pack oven lid makes it easy to pack less weed into the oven, while still giving excellent results.
Because the Pax 3 is such a competent little device–just a few hits will get the average vaper buzzing. If you are just trying to grab a quick session alone or with a friend, this lid lets you vape and be done with it. No long term (session) commitments!
Stealth Mode for Covert Ops
PaxVapor knows that us vapers want to vape in public (sometimes!) without a bunch of crazy looks or “new friends.” For that reason, there are special preset temperature profiles built into the device. The Stealth Mode option minimizes temperature and dims indicator lights so that you can vape with discretion and without attracting unwanted attention.
Low, steady temperature settings ensure that the smell and vapor will remain minimal throughout the time that you are vaping in this temperature profile. Pair your Pax with the SmartPhone app in order to get complete access to the device’s settings and profiles.
Herb Efficiency Hack: Use a Screen Filter
Here goes a little hack for optimizing the efficiency on your herb.
You’ll need: A pencil and a nickel-sized metal screen (pick up from any smoke shop).
- Wrap the screen around the pencil to give it a curve.
- Make a screen-taco, set it aside, and pack your Pax.
- Remember: grind well, pack tightly!
- Place your screen-taco (shell opening upwards) on top of the bud in the oven, and make sure you can close the oven lid.
We are attempting to compact the bud in the chamber. The screen is a bit springy and applies pressure on your little bud brick in the oven–ensuring it vapes efficiently and effectively.
If you pulled off this little trick, you will notice bigger clouds, smoother pulls, and an overall better vaping experience. You won’t have to stir or flip over your bud in the oven, and it’ll get properly toasted. In addition to this little hack, check out these Pax 3 accessories on Amazon for more ideas on how you can get the most out of your Pax3.
Be Obsessed w/ Emptying the Oven Post-Session!
This is probably the most obvious, but least performed hack to using the Pax 3 efficiently. We get it–you are stoned! You don’t want to get up to empty the oven chamber after each session. However, it is vitally important to the longevity of your Pax vaporizer’s life span that you keep the oven in tip-top shape.
When you do not empty the dry herb vaporizer’s chamber, you leave sticky, vaped buds inside to clog up your valuable oven. Obviously, the oven chamber on the Pax 3 is one of the most important aspects to the device’s functionality, and you don’t want to leave a sticky gooey block of trees inside gooping it up. Get up and empty it! Rather, keep a tool and an ash tray next to your chill chair. No inconvenient trips to the garbage. 😉
