For many reasons, the PAX 3 in UK is extremely popular:
- Ultraportable – can go anywhere
- Battery life is long
- It’s easy to use and share
- High-tech features
- Large oven can hold a lot
The PAX 3 is best if you grind your ingredients finely for even heat distribution and complete extraction. Both the Magic Flight Finishing and PAX 3 produce almost-powdery results.
For a finer grind, turn your three- or four-piece grinder upside-down. Use a two-piece grinder to get the best consistency.
The heat will spread more evenly through the PAX 3’s bowl if you pack it tightly. To firmly seal the oven’s contents, you can use the lid or the multi-tool PAX.
For best performance, smaller loads should still be packed tightly. If you are using less material, the half-pack oven cover is recommended. When vaping alone, I use the half pack lid.
Peak PAX performance requires a smooth, easy draw. If you push too hard on the PAX, it will cause you to overload the heater and produce a lot of vapor. It is best to begin with a gentle, cigar-like puff. I prefer to take short, gentle draws, just like sipping on a cup of tea.
Cannabis Hardware offers an oven lid with holes to improve airflow for those who can’t tolerate restrictive draws. The vapor thickness is affected by the increased airflow, which increases it by 30%.
Do I need to stir?
Your PAX 3 vaporizer won’t be required to stir the oven contents. You won’t need to stir the oven contents with your PAX 3 vaporizer.
If your herbs are sufficiently sticky and tightly packed, the puck will stick together in the oven. You can flip the puck by tapping it on your palm and then reloading it the other way.
Do not overfill concentrates
Overfilling the concentrate insert is something you do not want to do. You can place a small amount of concentrate in the bottom between the two air intake holes. The amount should not be greater than the holes.
Your dry concentrate will heat up and flatten out. Once it does, you can vape great. You’ll need to wait longer for your dry concentrate to heat up, or risk it spilling out from the canister.
It would be best to keep your draws at a moderate pace to avoid pulling too hard on the dry concentrate. Dry concentrates can be turned off anytime and you can return later to get more. The insert will cool it down, so you can continue where you left off.
