How to Vape High Viscosity Oils

Oil Vape Pen

High viscosity oils are sought after as they may offer thick vapor and full taste profiles. However, not all vape pens are equipped for this type of extract. We take a look at what you need to vape high viscosity oils and the best vaporizer types to use.

In The Vapers’ Guide to Oils, we take a look at the various types of extracts. From cannabis concentrates to essential oils. But it’s not just the ingredients in the oil that varies, it’s also the viscosity.

Only high-quality vapes can really provide the best taste for more viscous oils. These oils require more energy to heat, and cheaper vape pens can leave an unpleasant burnt taste. An inferior vape pen can make people think they prefer low viscosity oils.

Innovations like Greentank’s Ceramic Core Technology avoid direct contact with coils. This prevents that burnt taste, even at high temperatures.


Vape Hardware Requirements

High viscosity vape oils are more demanding on your equipment. You need vape hardware that is properly equipped to handle these demands. The biggest differences are temperature, battery, and cartridges.



The higher the viscosity, the higher the temperature required to vaporize it. Temperature needs to be precise, it needs to vaporize the oil without burning it. That requires precise measurement and vape pens with a great deal of control.



Using higher temperatures means using more energy. Battery quality in vape pens is inconsistent throughout the market. To keep up with these energy requirements takes a high-quality battery.

Greentank has worked hard to develop the best vape pen batteries for reliable user experience. The batteries have long lives, fast charging, and consistent energy outputs.


Vape CartridgeCartridges

Not all vape cartridges are created equal. For high-viscosity vaping, you need cartridges with a large enough max viscosity range. Products like the GT CR have their cartridges custom-crafted for each producer and oil. It’s one of the first cartridges capable of vaping “sauce” and other high viscosity extracts.

Vaping more viscous oils can lead to leaking in inferior pens. Make sure any vape pen you use has anti-leak technology.


Best Vaporizer Types for High Viscosity Vaping

With the special requirements for vaping high viscosity extracts, taking advantage of specialized vape pens is your best bet. Popular solutions for viscous oils are dab rigs and sub-ohm vape pens.

Dab Rig

Dabbing is the most popular way to consume high viscosity cannabis extracts. Shatter, crumble, and wax are all commonly inhaled through a dab rig. Fortunately, dab rigs have come a long way from using stove elements and metal knives. Today, dabbing is done on safer, more advanced tools, like the Torrch dab vape.

The best vaporizers for dabbing are more convenient, portable systems. They also offer reliable temperature control and a cleaner delivery. Altogether, these vape pens are more advanced, sophisticated dab rig tools.


Sub-Ohm Vapes

For the thickest clouds and fullest flavors, you want a Sub-Ohm vape pen. No other vaporizer can match the density of a Sub-Ohm vape cloud. The cloud is thick, warm, and flavorful.

Sub-Ohm vape pens have their own specific requirements. In addition to high temperatures and powerful batteries, they also need to have a low electrical resistance in the atomizer coil. Fortunately, premium vape cartridges, like the GT CR, CR Resin and DX, are capable of meeting these needs.
