Sometimes, purchasing cannabis can be very expensive. Why worry if you know how to turn wax into vape juice in your own way?

If your concern is not finding the type of e-juice that you like or having difficulty in purchasing, you can solve it if you prepare it on your own. This way, you can prepare it with your personal touch.

Why Prepare a D-I-Y Vape Juice?

When you have been using THC for a long time, you’ll develop your own preference. The type of THC extract you’re ordering from vendors may not suit you anymore.  

Aside from that, pre-filled cartridges may not be that high-quality and may not give the same high when you prepare your own. It’s because these are already commercialized. 

Purchasing may become very expensive for you especially if your state doesn’t allow it. Ordering it from vendors outside your state may add extra cost for shipping. Moreover, it may be risky to purchase it elsewhere in states that don’t permit the selling of marijuana products. 

If you prepare your own vape juice, you’ll get these benefits:

You can save more because preparing it on your own can produce more than when you buy it. Also, you don’t have to purchase it outside your state so less expense.
You can choose your own THC ingredients.
You can prepare your desired flavored vape juice.


If you’re a first-timer, getting the THC extract may not be easy. It takes practice to perfect the process of extraction and mixing of the ingredients. 

The first step involves the extraction of THC from marijuana which can be very dangerous if you’re not careful. Many cases reported blowing up due to the wrong procedure. However, if you want to skip this step, you can buy a prepared THC from trusted retailers. 

Make sure to buy from legal vendors in your state. It’s very important to purchase it from a trusted source because some states that don’t allow it may get you into trouble with the law.

The extracted THC can be in a form of crumble, honey oil, resin, sugar oil or shatter. This way, you can easily turn the concentrate into vape juice.

Don’t forget to check the THC content because the higher it is, the stronger is the effect. A stronger THC also means that it is more expensive. 

You should take note of the right container for keeping the wax. Use silicone containers to avoid the wax from sticking. Sticky wax is a characteristic of poor quality ingredients for making vape juice.

Ingredients and Tools:

Microwavable jar
Terpenes (diluents)
Vape pen


Get the right amount of wax into the microwavable jar. Mix in the right amount of liquidizer on top of the dab. Choose your desired flavored liquidizer.

Add terpene to the mixture to improve the scent and thickness. Stir the mixture. Place it in the microwave for a maximum of 10 seconds. 

The mixture must be in a liquid state. This facilitates the transfer of your concentrate into the vape pen. Let it cool.

Use a syringe to transfer the THC solution into the vape pen. Change your vape’s chamber often to avoid contamination of the original flavor.

One gram of THC solution can last up to a few weeks for regular users. For frequent users, one gram can only last for a day. Prepare the right amount based on your consumption.

If you’re preparing your own THC juice, you need to be aware of the ingredients that you shouldn’t use. Avoid the following:

High-strength nicotine
Any kind of household item
Essential oils
Flavoring that is not suited for vape juice

These days, if you like to have a D-I-Y vape juice, you can purchase a complete vape juice kit. The kit contains all your needed tools and ingredients to jump-start the preparation. 

You also need to decide whether you will prepare the vape juice by weight or by volume. The materials that you’ll need differ for each. 

If you want to be more accurate, you can invest in your own e-juice calculator. The calculator can give you a pre-computed amount of all the ingredients. 

Store all your ingredients appropriately. The changes in temperature, humidity, and oxygen can impact the chemical properties of the wax.

Clean all materials and tools after use. This avoids the contamination of your old vape juice when making a new one.
