Oftentimes the small size of bags that come with most bag vaporizers leave people desiring more, especially when they plan to vaporize with fairly large groups of people. Fortunately, there exists something simple you can do in order to increase the capacity of your bag vaporizer, use a turkey bag! In my experience, using a turkey bag greatly increases the amount of vapor collected, and can boost the number of people sharing a bag from 3-4 to 5+!
Turkey bags are fairly large plastic bags (designed to baste turkey in) which are made of the same material as regular vaporizer bags, and are the ideal size for a fairly large bag. Using a bigger bag will allow you to get the most out of your bag vaporizer since you can gather more vapor per bowl than you normally would. In my experience, the best thing to do is to start your vaporizer on a relatively low temperature (around 180C), and gradually increase it to about 225C as the bag fills up. With a little practice you will soon get the hang of filling these larger bags, and eventually you will learn how often you should increase vaporizer temperature to achieve maximum efficiency. Since oven bags are designed to handle the high temperatures encountered within an oven,
Attaching the bag to a bag vape is relatively easy. For the Extreme Q, simply remove the old bag and its fastenings and replace it with the new bag and voila! With the Volcano Vaporizer, you’ll need to have a solid valve in order to attach a turkey bag, as the Easy Valve comes with a preattached bag.
Not only do turkey bags allow you to increase the volume of vapor you get per bag, but they are also relatively inexpensive and can be easily replaced once they become worn out. If you have any experience in using turkey bags with your vaporizer, let us know in the comments!
