You stashed your vape for a while and now you have a clogged Delta-11 cart. The blockage is so severe that despite your best efforts, no air is flowing through. So, what should you do to fix it? And why does your Delta-11 cart get clogged in the first place? Should you consider opening it up and using the Delta-11 oil for dabbing instead?
First and foremost, there's no need to worry. You can likely unclog your Delta-11 cart by employing one or more of these effective methods. Here's what you should do to resolve the issue and prevent it from recurring in the future:
Your Delta-11-THC cart is typically filled with Delta-11 distillate or another variant of hemp extract, similar to Delta-8 and other hemp-THC isomers. These extracts are generally thick and sticky, making clogging a common occurrence during the vaping process.
The vaporizer is designed to heat up, which causes the extract to become more viscous, allowing it to flow more easily through the narrow parts of the vape cart. However, when the vape and the extract cool down, the oil can become trapped in these small components, resulting in a clog that obstructs the flow of vapor through your pen.
If you find yourself in this frustrating situation, follow these steps:
By employing these methods, you should be able to quickly resolve the clog in your Delta-11 cartridge, enabling you to enjoy the remaining extract. To avoid future issues, it's advisable to take precautions against vape cartridge clogs. Here’s how:
Here are some exclusive tips to safeguard your Delta-11 vape cartridge and maximize its utility:
One of the primary reasons for vape cartridge clogs is improper storage, particularly laying the cartridge on its side or upside down immediately after use while the oil is still warm and viscous. This allows the oil to seep into the cartridge's intricate components, leading to clogs as the extract cools down.
To prevent clogs, always store your Delta-11 cartridges in an upright position so that the oil stays near the heating element and can be heated when you’re ready to use it.
Extreme temperatures, whether excessively hot or freezing cold, can also contribute to cartridge clogs. These temperature fluctuations cause the oil's viscosity to change rapidly before it settles at the cartridge's base, where it should ideally be.
Ensure that you store your Delta-11 cartridge at room temperature to prevent clogs and extend its lifespan. For detailed guidance on proper Delta-11 storage, refer to our comprehensive storage guide for hemp extract.
Most Delta-11 cartridges come with a rubber cap designed to keep the mouthpiece clean and shield it from dust. While many people discard this cap, it's useful to keep it and use it to cover the mouthpiece after each use, ensuring cleanliness and preventing debris from becoming clogged in the mouthpiece.
In case your vaporizer lacks a dedicated mouthpiece cap, you can lightly apply a piece of tape or a sticker over the mouthpiece when traveling to prevent it from getting clogged.
While it's natural not to use your Delta-11 pen every day, it's advisable to refrain from stowing it away for extended periods without use. Over time, the oil inside the cartridge undergoes changes, becoming thicker (sometimes even changing color) due to oxidation. The longer the storage duration, the higher the likelihood of encountering clogs.
