You can use a pen with a metal tip to create a makeshift pipe if you have no viable alternatives. First, find a pen with a removable metal tip, and make sure that it is not made out of plastic. Then, unscrew the tip, remove the bottom cap and ink cartridge, and insert the tip upside-down into one of the case’s openings to form a bowl. Under no condition should you use a plastic pen to do this, as it will melt and release dangerous chemicals. In fact, this method should only serve as a last-ditch option if you don’t have a pipe, piece of fruit, or rolling papers.

How to Smoke Weed in a Vaporizer
Vaporizing or “vaping” cannabis has long been a practice, but in recent years it has gained increasing popularity due to a combination of expanding legalization and heightened attention to its health benefits. So how do you smoke weed in a vaporizer?
Let’s start by looking at the health benefits.
Why Smoke Weed In a Vaporizer?
While smoking weed is better for you than smoking cigarettes, the simple truth is that putting smoke in your lungs is never going to be risk-free. But why put up with the smoke that comes with burning the cannabis plant, when all you really need to get high is the THC that is locked in the plant?
Vaporizing heats the bud to the point where the THC is turned into vapor rather than smoke, resulting in a cleaner, healthier method of getting high. The THC cooks off, while the bud is left unburned and unsmoked.
How to Smoke Weed In a Vaporizer
So how do you use a vaporizer to smoke weed? There are a variety of different vaporizers that all have slightly different processes, but for our purposes here we’re going to focus on a basic vape pen, which is probably the most common.
2. Pack a small amount of herb into the vape pen’s removable chamber. Think of using an amount the size of a pencil eraser.
3. Switch the pen on.
4. Depending on your pen, there may be a button to activate the heating element. Press this and inhale from the mouthpiece. If there is no button, simply inhale to start the vaping process.
5. Pull the pen away from your lips and exhale.
6. Repeat at will.
Some vape pens require you to use cannabis concentrates and cartridges, and there are also tabletop vaporizers (some that involve a hose but function essentially just like your pen, others that fill a balloon from which you inhale the vapor), but it doesn’t take much alteration to tailor these steps to whatever vape you happen to use.
Now, enjoy your weed in good health. If smoking weed is new to you, it is good for you to know what to expect before trying on it.
Smoking weed in a vaporizer is a cleaner, healthier method to getting high. Check out these steps on how to smoke weed out of a vape!
