By following this guide you will learn how to make THC vape juice and be able to discretely enjoy or medicate with weed throughout the day without anyone noticing. Read below for an easy recipe on how to make THC vape juice at home to use in your vape pen. You no longer have to buy those expensive juices and e-liquids for your e-cig or regular liquid pen vaporizer. So let’s begin.

The technique on how to make THC vape juice

Vaporizing cannabis is one of the most effective ways of consuming the fine plant that we’ve all come to know and love. Not only do you need less product,  but you end up with much less of the tell-tale smell that screams you’ve been smoking. Eating cannabis baked into cookies, fudge, and brownies (i.e. edibles) is also another effective delivery method, but it takes longer for the effects of the THC to kick in due to digestion. Using shatter or wax can take a complex dab rig or specialty vaporizers. However, anyone with an authentic liquid pen vaporizer or box that handles e-juice can vaporize THC E juice easily.

Just as a clarification, the “E” in THC E juice stands for “electronic” — meaning it can be vaporized using an electronic device like an e-cig or liquid vaporizer. The process of making one is relatively simple and it involves just a few tools that you may already have.

Paying attention to the THC dosage

Before we get into detailed instructions on how to infuse e-juice with THC, it’s important to talk a bit about dosage. You don’t want to make your juice too strong nor too weak. THC E Juice creation starts with wax or shatter. Assuming you are getting your wax or shatter from a dispensary, there should be dosage information on the package. If you are using another source, ask them if they know the percentage of THC the wax has in it. A good rule of thumb is that most solvent based hash-oils will land in the 60-90% THC range. If you have a glob of wax that weighs in at one gram, and that wax is 80% THC, then the dose will measure out to 800mg of THC. Keep in mind that the recommended starting dose for something edible is only 5-10% or 5-10mg. Dabs and THC E Juice are definitely not for beginners to cannabis consumption.

The recipe on how to make THC vape juice

First of all, we will cover the basic making of an e juice at home from scratch before we get to the infusing process – just in case for the newbies among you. So, you will need some empty glass dropper bottles or plastic unicorn tip bottles with childproof caps. You’ll probably want some latex gloves to protect your hands. You will also need blunt tip syringes for accurate measuring, though you can use the counting drops method if you prefer. You will need propylene glycol (PG) and vegetable glycerin (VG). Both are FDA approved and already used in many foods we all eat every day. Your base – this is the liquid before you add flavoring or nicotine – will be anywhere from 50/50 to 80/20 VG to PG. As long as you stay in this range, you should be safe.

Once you have created the base, it’s just a matter of adding flavors or infusing herbs into the base until the desired taste and concentration is reached. There are many methods to steeping, but the easiest method is to cap your home-made e-juice bottles and let them sit in a dark, cool place for a few days.

THC E juice infusion

After covering the basics of how to make THC vape juice, what you need to know is how to infuse THC into a base using wax or shatter. If you need to know how to make THC E juice from buds, you are looking at a longer and much more involved process. Basically, you’ll need to extract the THC from raw plant material first.

The ingredients:

  • 1 gram of hash oil (wax, shatter, or rosinis best)
  • Bottle of your preferred e-juice mix of PG and VG

The instructions:

  • In a ceramic bowl, use a spoon to flatten your gram of wax, shatter, or other hash oil. Cover it with parchment or wax paper to keep it from sticking to the spoon.
  • Melt your wax. There are a couple of methods to accomplish this. One is to place the bowl with the flattened material in a bowl of warm water for a few minutes. Another method is to pop it in the microwave and use the “defrost” setting for a minute at a time. Get the mixture runny.
  • Begin adding drops of your VG/PG mix (start with about 30) and stir for about a minute. The wax and the VG/PG mix should be completely incorporated.
  • Let the mixture cool completely. It should be about the consistency of honey. If it is too thick, warm it again slowly and add more drops of your VG/PG mix until it is the correct consistency.
  • Place your THC-infused e-juice into your vaporizer and enjoy!

Now that you know how to make THC vape juice, you are free to enjoy your favorite strain anywhere on all occasions. Sure, there might be some hint of cannabis in the air, but not nearly as much as if you were smoking a joint or a bowl of bud. Keep in mind you could also use this method to create CBD E-Juice by using either CBD concentrates or making concentrates from strains high in CBD. Happy vaping!
