SAFETY FEATURE: The VM3™ cannot be turned on unless the mouthpiece is fully extended. Retracting the mouthpiece and closing the mouthpiece cover automatically turns off the unit. The heating element cannot be energized and will not function if the cover of the vaporization chamber compartment is open or not completely closed.
TEMPERATURE SETTINGS: Depending upon the age, blend, cut and moisture content, tobacco vaporizes at 230°-250° C. Most herbs vaporize at 190°-250°. However, the moisture content, potency and essential ingredients of botanical constituents vary. No two constituents are the same. Therefore, you must experiment with different amounts and temperature settings. Always begin with a small amount and a lower temperature setting and work your way up. Do not exceed 250° C. After vaporization the tobacco or herb should be brownish and dry, not burnt. When crumbled between your fingers it should turn to dust.
AMOUNT: For finely ground herbs and tobacco, enough to cover the bottom of the vapor chamber and no higher than the interior ridge the mesh lid seats against. Less is better. No need to pack the chamber. Be sure and twist and seat mesh lid. For essential oils one drop on a small ball of cotton inserted into the vapor chamber.
INHALATION: Inhale slowly and deeply for 5-10 seconds. Hold breath for a few seconds before exhaling. Be sure and keep the heat button depressed as you inhale. Do not cover the air intake slots with your thumb. If the outside air is colder than normal, set the temperature 10°-20° higher to compensate.
CLEANING: Blow out any loose debris. Using the brush, tweezers or a Q-tip moistened with alcohol clean the ceramic vaporization chamber, the vaporization chamber compartment and the internal screens after use.
CONSERVING BATTERY: Retract mouthpiece and close mouthpiece cover after use to conserve the battery. 8.
CAUTIONS: Only use herbs and essential oils that you are familiar with. Be extremely cautious vaporizing tobacco. Nicotine is a poison. A nicotine overdose can be fatal. Do not use more than one ceramic vaporization chamber of tobacco every 4 hours until you have greater experience with the VM3™. Do not use the VM3™ or any other vaporizer if you are pregnant, ill or under a doctor’s care. Do not allow children or minors to use or handle the VM3™.
