Vape juice, commonly known as e-juice, is the liquid converted into vapor when heated then inhaled. It is heated by an electronic cigarette or weed device. This device also known as a vape pen or vaporizer comes in different types and models. Its components include:
- Cartridge — this is where the juice is added
- Atomizer — this is the piece that changes the liquid to vapor and
- Battery — which facilitates the atomizer.
Vaping is better than smoking, there are a plethora of benefits to vaping THC as opposed to smoking it. For example:
- It is safer
- Hides the smell of weed
Steps on how to make THC vape juice
You will need:
- 6-8 grams of quality bud or 1 gram of high-grade cannabis concentrate.
- Two large glass jars or mason jars
- A large pot for boiling
- Precision thermometer
- Propylene Glycol
- Ever clear alcohol
- Aluminum foil and baking sheet
- Dropper bottles
First step — Decarboxylate the weed
Bake your weed by decarbing it. Place your ground 5-6 grams of weed onto the baking sheet and cover it with aluminum foil to heat up your bud. Leave them to bake at 230°F for 15 to 30 minutes — this is an important step to make them dry and brownish.
Second step — Extract
Add the crispy decarbed weed into your glass jar. Take the alcohol and submerge the weed — submerge the bud completely for extraction to work efficiently. Then stir the herb and let it settle.
Add about 4 inches of water to your pot, and then place the glass jar directly inside the pot. Boil the water and stir the weed in the jar constantly. Once it gets darker, remove the pot from the stove and let it cool.
Third step — Strain
Use a cutting or a thinning agent to vaporize the alcohol. After you have evaporated some of the excess alcohol from your mixture, filter out the plant fibers from your oil. Cover your second glass jar with the strainer and slowly pour in the contents of the first glass jar into the second, letting the strainer catch the weed — it should be wet and well-saturated. Essentially, it should be a brown liquid.
Fourth step — Process
Fill the pot with water and place the glass jar into the pot. Let it boil at about 160 degrees Fahrenheit; at this high temperature, it will evaporate all the alcohol, leaving about 5ml of the THC. Another way to this step is letting the alcohol evaporate away naturally, though this takes longer.
Next, add propylene glycol (PEG) to the glass jar. Remove the jar from the pot, then use a syringe to extract the liquid from the jar.
You should mix the PEG and THC oils together and store it in your dropper bottles then shake.

How long does it take to make THC vape juice?
Time used to make the THC vape juice is measured by the temperature and the THC dosage, the higher the temperatures the faster the extraction. Not all vaporizing devices are compatible with THC extract. If you can access cannabis extracts, or use cannabis flowers and trimmings.
The quality of the flower is also a contributing factor to making the THC vape juice. If the quality of the flower is high you will use fewer amounts of grams to make the juice. Also, 1 gram of high-grade cannabis concentrate can equivalent to 7 grams of the quality flower used.
As long as the plant still contains moisture, the water can boil and damage the cells which in turn will destroy the appearance of the plant.
Thus, allowing for proper decarboxylation helps ensure the best yield.
