Are you thinking about taking your dry herb vaporizer on the road with you?

Before you do, there are some important things to consider – from whether it’s allowed by TSA regulations to how to clean it before boarding your flight.

Here’s what you need to know when travelling with a dry herb vaporizer.

Can You Travel With a Dry Herb Vaporizer?

Yes! According to TSA guidelines, dry herb vaporizers are permitted in carry-on or checked bags.

However, make sure that all lithium ion batteries and electronic devices must be removed from their cases and put into a plastic bag for separate screening. This includes vaporizers.

Also, keep in mind that laws regarding marijuana use vary from state to state, so be sure to check the local regulations of any destinations you're travelling to.

How to Clean Your Vaporizer Before You Get On the Plane

Even if your vaporizer is allowed on the plane, it’s important to give it a thorough cleaning before boarding.

Here are some quick and easy steps for keeping your dry herb vaporizer clean:

  • Empty out all remaining herbs or material from the chamber.
  • Use a soft brush or cotton swab dipped in alcohol or another cleaner (check your vaporizer's instructions for specifics) and gently scrub around the heating element and other components as needed.
  • Once all visible residue has been cleared away, fill the chamber with rubbing alcohol and let it sit for several minutes.
  • Drain the alcohol out and rinse with warm soapy water.
  • Dry the components completely before reassembling your vaporizer.
  • Let it air-dry for about an hour before using or packing away.

Following these steps will help you ensure that your dry herb vaporizer is clean and ready to travel with you!
