4. Filling The Cartridge

Now it’s time to put more oil into the cartridge. If you're making your own oil, the best ways to do this is to transfer everything into a syringe. This will ensure that there’s no sticky mess or spills which could be hard to clean up. Gently push the syringe tip into the cartridge and fill the it to the top or to the max fill line, if applicable. Squeeze gently to push the oil into the cartridge. 

5. Replace The Mouthpiece

Find the mouthpiece from the location where you stored it earlier. Gently put it back onto the cartridge.Turn the mouthpiece clockwise until snug. Avoid turning the mouthpiece more than necessary or you could damage it or its threads. It is recommended that you wait a couple minutes for the the ceramic coil to absorb the oil before taking your initial puff.
