    Hey guys brand new here, ive been smoking herbs for about two years now, and always just smoked the good ol ways. I just finished my first year of college, and i'm on a small campus, so its hard to get away from people (teachers, Public safety, and RAs) to toke up during the day, usually leaving me till late at night before i can smoke, so ive been considering getting a portable vape, so i can smoke on the go much easier, now heres the thing.
    i don't really care about combusting my herbs, i just want the ease of smoking without lunging around a smelly bong or bowl in my backpack. So my question is would it be ok to get a G pen or other Vape like it if i don't care about true vaping, or should i spring for something like the PAX anyway?
    Basically a Gpen vs Pax scenario except i don't care about the "vaping" part i just want the ease in a portable smoke.

    So... you are going to use a vaporizer for combustion? Or am I confused?

    Im saying if i don't care about combusting my weed and not truly vaporizing it, then would it be ok to get a G pen or something like it, that doesn't truly vape, or would it be better to get a PAx or something similar, basically its Gpen vs Pax except i don't care about ture vaping

    I'd just buy a brass one hitter and call it good. But I do care about combustion, so I vape.

    Well... it definitely wouldn't be true vaporizing, that's for sure.

    I don't know if anyone here could recommend a vaporizer for combustion. You'd have to narrow it down to the vapes that CAN combust, and then figure out which one could stand constant combustion. I'm not sure there is one. Although I did combust accidentally in my Magic Flight about a dozens times and it kept on ticking. Maybe a Vapor Genie could put up with it a good while.

    I would look into some of the more stealthy travel combustion devices, that have the flame and bowl and even storage all in one device.

    Or just start vaporizing and get on the trolley.

    If you don't want to vaporize, why do you want a vaporizer?

    What you really are looking for is an E-pipe?
    basically like an atoms raw or something of the sort?

    I see what the OP is saying. He is an old school combuster and he is simply looking for convenience. Think back to your days of combustion. I was always a bong man. On the go I would take joints if that was the only option but I was always a shitty joint roller and I found the whole process troublesome. Compare it to having a vape packed and ready to go and maybe we can see the OP's point.

    Maybe get an Atmos Raw or similar and use it as an e-pipe. Don't buy it in the US though. Some reputable sites are still selling that piece of shit for good money. get one from Aliexpress. Should be under $30. Mind you the load will be small. Also, you could do yourself a favor and start vaping :) It is a million times better imo. Anyway, good luck man.

    If it were me looking to combust, I'd go the simple stealthy one hitter.

    Somethin about combustion and batteries doesn't seem to mix with me.

    If I didn't care about combusting, I'd probably get an Atmos Raw. Convenient, easy, tastes like shit, just like a pipe.id get that over gpen.

    If I were you I'd get a real vaporizer...you won't believe the taste difference. I used to love to smoke...now smoke makes me gag. For electronic it's hard to go wrong with pax...heard the firefly is better though...same price point with faster heat-up and convection vs. conduction. You will want something with fast heat-up if you're looking to be quick on campus.

    If you don't mind using a lighter, the lotus is great, too. It keeps the old habits of smoking in tact, but you enjoy the amazing taste of vapor. Plus the clouds are really thick, and there's no charging a battery. And you get vapor in a couple seconds...no wait time; instant gratification.

    thanks for all the responses guys, giving me a lot to think about, i have vaped before with a friends MFLB but didn't really enjoy it that much, but did like the taste more, the high from vaping was always different for me, not sure if thats the norm, i'm not opposed to vaping i just haven't had a good experience with it so far with my friends MFLB

    you hit the nail on the head thanks man

    You really haven't given vaping a try if you've only tried it once or twice. it takes a true commitment of a couple of weeks to change over to full vaping because of the difference in high at first. Once most have made the switch over, they don't go back to combustion.

    But that is besides the point here. You are looking for a portable vape that will help you be more stealthy on campus. I would suggest either the Vapor Genie or the Lotus. They both emulate smoking from a pipe and will be fairly inexpensive (especially the vapor Genie).

    FWIW~ If you are concerned about smelling at all then you should care not to combust. Combustion Stinks!

    Most people that have been smoking for years and trying to make the switch to vapor NEEDS to stop smoking altogether and just vape for about 3 weeks. You need to give your body and mind a detox from the chemicals in smoke such as carbon monoxide and benzine that can provides a high of their own and is one of the primary reasons why the high is different along with not getting a complete cannabinoid profile as is provided by smoke.

    Most who do this will never go back to combustion but there is a small percentage who can never be happy with the transition.

    The Solo, on its own, is an awesome vape! What may seal the deal is when you find out how much herb you'll be saving! Combustion wastes much of the goodies in your product... Vaping conserves! ;)

    If stealth is your goal, combustion is your enemy. Burning herb in an ecig is a poor solution since it will be just as nasty and smelly as combustion, more expensive and you'll likely burn out the coil pretty quickly. Get an inexpensive vaporizer like the vapor genie, which has most of the benefits of combustion in terms of satisfying hits without the drawbacks of producing smoke.

    Now, that's what we like to read :rockon:.
    I agree with getting a Solo first, it's great for converting a smoker IMO.
    You can get it at one of FC's favorite venders, PuffItUp for $160 with a coupon code or even less with a price match.

    I didn't see where you were located, but if you are in an MMJ state then your best option for sneaking a quick hit, IMO, is the O Pen Vape.

    It has a clearomizer that functions when you take a draw (no button) and the cartridges are refillable with a needle tipped syringe.

    Dispensaries sell cartridges for around 25 dollars for the half gram with 250 mg of THC. It's a watered down PEG solution made from CO2 Supercritical Oil. It'll get you medicated but I've found that varies from cartridge to cartridge.

    The most reliable method of medicating while using this system, that I've found, is to refill with Liquid Gold CO2 oil. That has a consistent quality and always gets me medicated.

    The strongest oil I've tried was from Organa Labs and it was called Dragon Breath. The oil name was Honey Oil by Organa Labs. The strain was Dragon Breath.

    There is also oil made by Pure Gold that looks like it'd work in this cartridge. I say looks because I haven't tried it. But I know PureGold sells a look alike cartridge with 510 thread loaded with a gram of oil that I think fits the O Pen Battery.

    The point is to try out which oil brand you like best and load it on to the cartridge. I've loaded from low to high viscosity and my only problem came when the oil was super viscous and the wick would take a while to saturate between sessions.

    Be sure to get oil oil if you try this out. I've seen waxes and hashes labeled as oils and while they might be (I don't know) I consider those wax and hash respectively and oil as oil. So be sure that it flows somewhat, it can be thick like honey I've found.

    This is the ultimate sneak and toke. The only downside being that it produces small-medium clouds of smoke, which is why I'm going to try out a Protank Mini V3 and an Ego C Twist. Hopefully I get thicker clouds of smoke while only compromising stealth by a bit, since this thing is medium ish in pen size.

    I forgot to mention how much an O Pen Vape will cost you. It's 25 for the battery and 25 for a half gram cartridge clearomizer. If you want the clearomizer empty it comes in 3 packs for 13 dollars if I remember correctly. You can get it at their website just google openvape.

    Another avenue open to you, which I almost went down, is a wax pen. The downside is that you have to load the coil for single use, but I'd imagine that it packs a punch.
