    I brought it up because Sticks says that he does not draw fast...it probably is no big deal...but we have to talk about something until our 'reviewers" give us more impressions and pictures.:)

    Its too bad all you guys that's re testing these units don't live in Canada, cause I'd even send some oil to one of you to test if you lived in Canada and had a medical license like myself.
    I just made 5 grams of nice thick honey oil for the vape coming my way the ascent.
    These reviews are great and videos too I wish there could be a bit more actual videos of the while process from pack to session to abv just to see the whole aspect of this unit in action.
    Anyway oil is so much more potent and the need to use a lot is not nessaary due too the high tch,cbd,cbn content cause of extraction of the oils, allways higher in tch the herb so it would be nice treat to see it in use in the oil canisters.
    I wish I could try these oil canisters and see the vapor production in these oil canisters in the ascent cause it does serve a medical purpose and should be discussed and tested so all will know how this ascent works with oils.
    You can't hardly test this unit with herb only and give it a review the has to be oil in the mix too.
    It needs to be tested and reviewed other wise it is a one sided test and review so so get this thing reviewed in its entirety hey.
    Keep it coming guys, cheers medical mark

    Wow. A medical mark post I had no trouble reading.
    (But no change in difficulty understanding.)


    :p :rofl:


    [EDIT: Looks like mark went back and added more than the 7 words total to his post, so the joke looses a bit there.]

    That was brilliant and hilarious!

    whistling - I just hit my unit cold with a full load and couldn't get any whistling in any configuration...and this is from a stem I had whistle earlier. I think it was still wet from cleaning. I have another air path soaking and will change them and see if that one whistles...I'll make sure it's wet, too.

    Hey man I'm just intense that's all we need more of a overview with this unit all were focusing on is herb and it is a dual purpose vape oils and herb we really have no idea how she performs with oils so its all one sided.
    And I'm sorry you don't understand my posts pretty straight forward rants lol
    Medical mark

    Nigel you can't understand my posts ?
    Sorry back to school I guess. lol
    I thought we were on the same page or ami on a different page? Maybe
    I'm very analytical and a thinker of sorts when approaching vaporization due to the many different reasons I use cannabis and vaporizers.
    I'm a medical patient who grows and needs a daily intake of cannabinoids so I can function in a some what normal way on a daly basis. So I get a little emotional and intense regarding my medical needs and the delivery of my medicine cause its my life line.
    Cheers, medical mark
    Sorry sticks wasn't paying attention

    stickstones modnote: don't make me merge this shit...it's a pain in the ass!

    My latest reply from GV:


    Hello XXXXX,

    I just received notice that the Ascents are in transit to us J

    They are in the process of clearing customs, I have our entire 250 piece pre-order batch coming in.

    I will provide you with your tracking info once I get mine.

    We have it set up so that they will leave the same day that they arrive.

    I will keep you posted once I get my tracking.

    The end is near, you will be Vaping on this for years!

    I promise.

    Gee are they coming straight to them from China and not checked first by DV...that sounds fishy to me but what do I know.

    I've dealt with manufacturing in China. I'm not surprised.

    EDIT: Additionally quite a few companies will ship straight from the factory to the end customer. I've watched things like laptops get stuck in customs by just paying attention to the tracking number.

    My own "guess" is that GV has been informed by DV that the units are clearing customs. When they get to DV, they will then ship them out to GV...at that time GV will get their tracking number...


    Just a guess...:)

    Poonman -- If that's my comment you are talking about, FOR ONCE I wasn't being sarcastic. ;)

    Medical Mark -- Yup. See my edit on previous post.


    EDIT: Most likely the units are being packaged at the factory (including production of the packaging). So when they leave the factory, they should be completed units, ready for sale. It makes more sense to do QA *prior* to everything being boxed up. On that note, since the QA is done and the items is boxed, why not ship directly to distributors? Why pay to ship it to one place to the pay again to ship elsewhere?

    Please see the last sentence just before your quoted text right here.

    You guys are as cynical as me. Figured I would post that for you all to cut apart. I'm just glad it's slowly moving along.

    One of the issues we've run into, is that you never know with customs. Some times a lot will just sail through, and the next time an identical lot will stall out for an undetermined period of time.

    It's a crap-shoot.

    OK I am lost now but to ship directly to GV is just bad business IMO from most of our experiences dealing with GV. Where is menz when we need him?

    PN had one bullet and many other products weren't as they are suppose to be. QC people QC needs to be done by DV in this case not GV who we think won't do it? I hope you get a great discount cause some will be getting returned or missing pieces.

    Sorry to be cynical but it is all over FC how they do business. They may have good intentions but they are a mass supplier and it is a numbers game maybe :shrug:

    It won't be done by GV. As explained above, it is done before it is put into retail packaging.

    Usually you have either one of your own people supervising, or you hire someone local there to manage the factory. (Otherwise, the factories will try to get away with anything and everything.) This is for smaller companies doing manufacturing.

    You will do some final random spot checks, but most of it takes place before.

    EDIT: CONFIRMED--In retail packages at the factory:

    Weren't we told by DV that ALL shipments of units would go to them first and then THEY would ship them to their 3rd party associates?

    Now that you say, that, I think I recall them saying something along those line.

    Shipping directly, as indicated, doesn't surprise me at all, and is done often. But a direct quote from DV would trump that.

    EDIT: Found one of the quotes. Looking for the other:




    EDIT EDIT: FYI units are not coming by boat (due to timing, I think we all figured this out), but here is the quote:

    EDIT EDIT EDIT: I found the quote I was looking for that says we (FC) get them first "and the rest will go into distribution." So that sounds like everything is going in one shipment.


    THAT ALL BEING SAID, those quotes were from some time ago. Things could have changed since then. SO it could be possible that, due to the delays, they might change things up just to get things out quicker.

    Big mistake cause they don't care in China how stuff is shipped supervised or not. In either respect it isn't my company or my reputation so I am out of this subject now. I said my peace.
