The marijuana vape pen is the best: It’s portable, discreet and look like something out of 2015 Hill Valley in Back to the Future Part II. But after repeated uses, they do need a bit of TLC. Here’s how to keep your digital happy stick as good as new.

Cleaning A Dry Herb Vaporizer Pen

It’s best to clean your dry herb pen after each use. The good news is it’s super easy to do so.

  • Unscrew the herb chamber from your device and tap out its contents into a trash can.
  • If your device came with a brush, use it to clean out the chamber. If not, use a cotton swab. DON’T use water or rubbing alcohol.
  • Put your mouthpiece under running water to clean out the airway.
  • Use a damp cloth to rub down the exterior of your device, making sure to not get any water inside it.
