Beginners Guide to the FlowerPot

What is the FlowerPot Vaporizer?

The FlowerPot Vaporizer is the best desktop vaporizer for dry herbs and concentrates. For the past twelve years, our team of engineers and cannabis enthusiasts has worked endlessly to improve this device, taking every precaution to make sure it outperforms competing products. The Flowerpot, produced in Boynton Beach, Florida, allows you to enjoy your cannabis like a true connoisseur.

1. Benefits of the FlowerPot Vaporizer

The FlowerPot Vaporizer is a unique and versatile cannabis hardware device known for its innovative design and customizable features.

1. Versatility: The FlowerPot Vaporizer is designed to work with both dry herb (cannabis flower) and concentrates (such as wax or oils). This versatility allows users to switch between different forms of cannabis consumption based on their preferences and the materials they have available.

2. Customizable Experience: One of the major advantages of the FlowerPot Vaporizer is its high level of customization. Users can adjust factors such as temperature and heads to create a vaping experience tailored to their specific needs and desired effects.

3. Efficiency: The FlowerPot's hybrid heating method, combining convection and conduction, can contribute to efficient vaporization of cannabinoids and terpenes, potentially leading to more effective use of cannabis material.

4. Dabbing-like Experience: For users who enjoy dabbing, the FlowerPot Vaporizer is known for delivering a similar experience with concentrates. This can include potent and flavorful hits that mimic the experience of using a traditional dab rig.

5. Enhanced Flavor: The customizable temperature and airflow settings can help preserve the natural flavors and aromas of cannabis, allowing users to fully enjoy the terpene profiles of their chosen strains.

6. **Ease of Use**: While it might have a learning curve for some users, the FlowerPot Vaporizer can provide a relatively simple and straightforward experience, especially for those who are familiar with using vaporizers or dab rigs.

7. Quality Construction: The FlowerPot Vaporizer is often constructed from high-quality materials such as Grade 2 Titanium, which can contribute to a durable and long-lasting device.

8. Reduced Health Risks: Vaporization is generally considered a safer alternative to smoking, as it avoids the combustion process that produces harmful toxins and carcinogens. By using the FlowerPot Vaporizer, users can potentially reduce the health risks associated with traditional smoking methods.

It's important to note that benefits can vary from person to person, depending on individual preferences and needs. 

2. How to use the FlowerPot

What You'll Need:
1. FlowerPot unit (head and bowl attachments)
2. Power source (compatible with the PID and controller) 

3. Rubies (for best experience) 
4. Cannabis flower or concentrate
5. Glass or water pipe (for connecting the FlowerPot to your glass setup)

1. Setup and Assembly:
  - Ensure your FlowerPot unit is properly assembled, including the PID and bowl attachment.
  - Connect the FlowerPot unit to a compatible power source.

2. Choose Your Material:
  - Decide whether you want to use dry herb (flower) or concentrates for your session.

3. Preparing the Bowl:
  - If using dry herb: Fine grind your cannabis flower and load it into your bowl.
  - If using concentrates: Apply a small amount of concentrate onto the B2 dab dish or place your concentrates on top of your cannabis. 

4. Temperature
  - Depending on the FlowerPot model and setup, adjust the temperature settings on the temperature controller.
  - Experiment with different temperature  to find your preferred vaporization experience. Lower temperatures may provide more flavor, while higher temperatures may produce thicker vapor.

5. Heating and Vaporization:
  - Power on the FlowerPot and allow it to heat up to your desired temperature.
  - Once the FlowerPot reaches the desired temperature, place your mouthpiece (attached to your glass or water pipe) to your lips and inhale slowly while applying heat to the bowl.

6. Inhale and Enjoy:
  - As you inhale, the FlowerPot will vaporize the cannabis material, producing flavorful vapor.
  - Inhale the vapor slowly and steadily, and exhale as desired.

7. Cleaning and Maintenance:
  - Regularly clean the bowl attachment and other components to ensure optimal performance and flavor.

3. What NOT to do

To ensure the longevity and proper functioning of your Flowerpot, there are several things you should avoid doing:

1. DO NOT TOUCH your FlowerPot once the device is turned on. Once you power off your device wait at least one hour before touching it.

2. Do not excessively over fill or under fill your FlowerPot with rubies. 

3. Do not add water or cleaning solutions while hot or use any metal without pre warming them. Sapphire dishes are susceptible to thermal shock.

4 .  Do not neglect to clean your FlowerPot. Neglecting regular cleaning can lead to a buildup of resin and residue, making it more difficult to clean later on and potentially affecting the taste and performance of your FlowerPot.

5. Ensure that all parts are completely dry before reassembling and using your flowerpot. Residual moisture can affect the quality of your cannabis and potentially cause mold or bacterial growth.

6.  Ensure that you're using the appropriate accessories and components designed for your FlowerPot. Using mismatched or ill-fitting parts can result in damage or inefficiency.

4. How to clean your FlowerPot

Cleaning your Flowerpot is essential to maintain the quality of your vaping experience and to ensure the longevity of your FlowerPot. Here's a step-by-step guide on how to clean your FlowerPot: 

  1. Rubbing alcohol (Isopropyl alcohol): 90% or higher concentration is best.
  2. Coarse salt: Salt
  3. A Container: Large enough to fit your hardware pieces.
  4. Pipe cleaners, cotton swabs, or brushes: These will help with scrubbing smaller parts and hard-to-reach areas.
  5. Rubber or latex gloves: To protect your hands from residue and cleaning solutions.

Disassemble your FlowerPot: Take it apart as much as possible. This makes it easier to clean all the nooks and crannies.

Rinse with Hot Water: Start by rinsing each piece with hot water to remove loose debris and residue.

Prepare the Cleaning Solution: Mix rubbing alcohol and salt in a container. The salt acts as an abrasive agent to help scrub away stubborn resin and build-up. You can use roughly 1/4 to 1/2 cup of salt and enough alcohol to submerge the pieces.

Soak the Hardware: Place each piece of your flowerpot into the container with the cleaning solution. Close the container and give it a gentle shake to ensure the solution gets into all the crevices.

Shake and Soak: Let the pieces soak in the solution for at least 30 minutes to loosen the resin and grime. Periodically shake the container to agitate the mixture.

Scrub and Swab: After soaking, use cotton swabs, or brushes to scrub away remaining residue. Pay special attention to hard-to-reach areas. The alcohol and salt should help break down the build-up.

Rinse Thoroughly: Rinse each piece thoroughly with hot water to remove any remaining cleaning solution, salt, and residue. Continue to use swabs, or brushes as needed to remove any stubborn spots.

Dry Completely: Allow all the pieces to air dry completely before reassembling and using your flowerpot. Ensure there's no residual alcohol left before use.

Reassemble: Reassemble your FlowerPot and it is now clean and ready for use.
