If you're whip is clogged you're hits will suck ass...you'll end up burning a nice dot where the screen has been left free of gunk.
Now I personally like to let the vap honey (this stuff actually closer to honey then honey oil it's sticky sweet smelling and you end up with a fine layer of crystalized thc all over mixed in to give you that real bee honey white/super sugary crust you see on natural honey.
The best thing to do in my case is to remove the screen clean it or repalce it rather then use salt or alcohol and from what I've seen alotta you have major problems with the screen...
To remove and replace it I use 2 zip ties that have been run through each other (so you have both hole sides touched and 2 pointy ends almost even with each other side by side) and a piece of the tubing for the bowl.
I push it out working it carefully then place it in on a diagonal close to the heating element an turn it up a little hotter..this gets you nice an toasted and it makes it all just dust off. Once you do that burn the rest off an rinse it then dry it after that all you gotta do is flatten it out then bend it in the shape of a pringle potatochip without the saddle shape (like you'd get if you rolled it over half a pipe) and stick it in till it's near but not past the groove after that insert the tie and adjust till you got one tie tip on either side then insert the plastic tube and work it into place using the tube as a backstop and the zip as a pusher. if you make it dome like by accident just use some paper towel in place of the tube and push on both sides evenly.
If you haven't already making a partical collector or converting a bong is a must for serious vapers.
Once you have your bong it's time to pack the whip..
I usually break up about a g or more turn the vap way up then lower it pack the whip and start fast then slow down.
Once it's broken down I like to place the whip over the pile of herb and hit it to pack it just right. It's never to tight never too loose.
Then I tip the bong enough to get water in the tube (after the whip is really coated you make the water hit the half way mark in the whip and vap as normal on each rip) it sorta steams away the stuff thats not pure thc leaving you with this mess of white super sticky stuff that gets you so so so wasted.
And the last thing my stoned ass can think of...rotate the whip as you hit it slowly on a lower setting the hits are sweet...when you run throug your pile of herb revap it at a higher settig or save it for making butter.
