Planet of the Vapes Lobo Cleaning and Maintenance Guide What You Need

Remove the glass mouthpiece and screen from the adapter

Most of our cleaning efforts will take place with Lobo’s Glass Adapter. Slide it off and then remove any glass stem you have attached.

Lay the adapter down flat on a table, screen-side down. Insert the Loading Tool from the top and press down on the screen. Then, lift the adapter up as you press down with the loading tool to eject the screen. This is the best way to remove the screen without fraying it.

Soak the screen and any dirty stems

We recommend you soak the screen and any dirty stems in rubbing/isopropyl alcohol for the best results. Toss them in a small container of solution and let them soak for a few hours to remove any tough buildup.

Wipe down the oven

While those soak, take a cotton swab and dip it into your rubbing alcohol. Then, hold your Lobo upside down (to protect the electronics) and carefully wipe down the oven to remove any sticky residue.

Rinse and dry the screen and glass stems

After a few hours have passed, remove the screens and glass stems from alcohol soak and give them a thorough rinse under warm water. Set them out on a paper towel and allow them to dry.

Reassemble and run a burnoff

Once the screen and glass stems are dry, reattach them to the Glass Adapter and then slide it back onto the Lobo.

Last thing we’ll do is run a quick burnoff to cleanse it of any remaining residues. Turn your Lobo on and set it to the highest temperature of 430°F / 221°C. Let it run a full session until it shuts off. And that’s it!

Tips for a cleaner vape

To extend the freshness of your Lobo dry herb vaporizer, be sure to brush out the oven after every session, while the oven is still warm. Most of the buildup occurs as the herbs cool down and stick to the oven. Do this after every session and you’ll have a much cleaner vape for longer.

Dosing capsules are also a great way to prevent a dirty vape. Herbs are contained inside these little pods so all you need to do is remove the pod, dump the herbs out, and that’s it! Be sure to pick up a set or two!
