In this video and blog post, we are covering everything you need to know about the Utillian 722 vaporizer – an updated version of the 721. It comes with a more sleek square redesign, better airflow, and more temperature control. The 722 is a portable, dual use vape that can be used for both dry flower and extract, and has a convection oven that allows for your cannabis to be heated more evenly.
If you are interested in purchasing a vaporizer or have questions about your device, you can learn more here about the vaporizers Apollo sells to our patients.
Unboxing the Utillian 722
When you first open the box, you will see it includes the following accessories:
- O-Ring Screen Set
- Cleaning Brush
- Micro USB Charging cable
- Wax Canister
- Wax Tool
Using The Utillian 722
To get started, you want to make sure your Utillian is charged, by plugging the micro USB into the bottom of the device, and the other side into any regular USB charger such as a computer or brick wall charger that you would use for your phone. The device provides about 60 minutes of battery life, and the light on the bottom will turn green once fully charged. When you first receive your device out of the box, you may want to run it first without any product or medicine inside to ensure any leftover particles or dust from manufacturing get removed.
With every vaporizer, you want to make sure you grind your cannabis before inserting it into the device’s oven. Apollo offers our patients grinders for sale if they do not yet have one.
To use your twist grinder, place a small amount of flower into the grinder, push down to close, and twist the sides. You don’t want to twist too long in case it grinds too finely.
The cap that encloses the oven on the Utillian is held on magnetically, so you can just lift it right off. You then place your ground cannabis into the oven and put the cap back on.
The device is a single button use – You will click the button on the side 5 times quickly to turn it on. The light at the top will turn on, to show that the device is heating.
There are 4 pre-set heating temperatures, and in order to change the setting you are on you click the button twice to cycle through each preset temperature:
A green light is the lowest and is 365 Fahrenheit or 180 celsius.
The blue light is 374 F or 190C.
The purple light is 392 for 200C.
The highest is the red light which is at 410F or 210C.
The higher the temperature, the more intense the vapor is going to be. This model does have a boost mode which can be activated by holding down the button for a few seconds until it flashes red, which indicates it is in boost mode. The higher heat increases the activation of the cannabinoids, creating a thicker vapor. Some people use this at the end of a session to get the most out of the remainder of their medicine.
Once it is fully heated, you want to ensure your lips are enclosed around the mouthpiece, and take gentle sip-like draws to pull the warm mist from the device. If you are new to cannabis, you are only going to want to take 1-3 inhales or “pulls” and wait about 30 minutes to see how you feel. If you need to take more, you can always turn your device back on to take more medicine as needed.
To turn off the device, you click it 5 times and it will shut off completely. It takes about 60 seconds to heat, and the top light will turn solid green once fully heated.
Using Wax or Concentrates in Your Utillian 722
The Utillian is compatible with extracts and concentrates which can be placed in the canister. To use the wax canister, you will want to use the wax tool and place a small amount into the canister before placing the canister into the heat chamber.
Be sure to use proper concentrates only, as the device is not meant for ingestible oils.
Once you have finished using the canister, remember it will be hot, so use the tweezers provided to remove it or wait until it cools down. Be sure to put the canister on something that won’t melt when you first take it out if it is hot but it is recommended to let the device cool down completely before trying to remove the canister.
Cleaning Your Utillian 722
It is important to clean your device every few uses, or in between sessions as the resin can build up. It is a dark brown sticky material that comes from the cannabis plant. Cleaning your device will ensure it continues to work at its best performance. Cleaning your device is quite easy:
- Pop off the magnetic lid and remove the o-ring and mouthpiece
- Soak the external pieces in an alcohol solution overnight or for a few hours (Apollo carries the solution with instructions)
- Rinse the pieces with water afterward to get rid of any solution
- To clean the inside, you will want to use something like a grime stick, or a q-tip with isopropyl alcohol on it
- If using a grime stick, you can snap the end where there is a blue line to release the alcohol solution into the q-tip
- You can now use it to clean the inside of the device such as the oven and lid
- Make sure to never place the main portion of the unit into any water as it will ruin the device
- And make sure all the pieces are fully dried before using the device again
- The mouthpiece can then be snapped back onto the lid and the screen lines up with 2 grooves, where the O-ring then goes back overtop, holding it in place
We do suggest turning it on for at least a minute afterward to burn off any alcohol solution left on the device before using it.
The Utillian 722 does have a 1-year hassle free warranty. If you need any help with your device or need a cleaning kit or any accessories, please contact Apollo at 1-877-560-9195 or by email at Support@apolloresearch.ca.
