NANO + SESSION = CIVILIZED
Snow Day = enano day.
Like the man says, civilized.
I've been favoring my vapcaps and milaana lately but I always come back to the nano and it never disappoints.
@Whissmu, I LOVE that stand!
That crack in the wood is so damn cool ! looks like EVIL ENANO !
Can you get a tiny eye-patch for it ?
Based on recommendation of others here I do raise my heat by a half step when vaping concentrates. I use CO2 distillate oil which is like thick sap. I smear some oil on a small piece of organic cotton and turn up my nano from the usual 6 to 6.5. I've vaped the oil at regular temps and it still works fine, I just get a little less vapor cloud at first but then once the oil heats up it vapes as usual.
I don't turn it up when I mix oil on top of flowers because I don't want to over-toast the herb. Still works fine.
Haha hell yeah that's what I was thinking. That nano looks really badass!
Yes I have heated up to desired temperature
BTW my maple wood one is also cracked but mine just got an plumber ass-crack
@ataxian , @ArthurJ Thanks for your nice words!
@BabyFacedFinster thank you for giving me your opinión , I was using it comfortably at 5.25 aprox and for cocentrates I used hemp fiber and instead of raising the temperature I left more time on the stem in the nano before sucking .. I will give it another chance by raising the temp!
Generally yes, but it depends how you how you execute it. I use organic cotton wisps, and bump temp to 8 (or max sometimes!) and once the vapour starts pumping I dial it back down to close to flower temps (6ish).
Very few vapes have the capability of the e-nano when it comes to convection dabbing! Super thick and super tasty!
When is the next sale on these? 4/20? Not sure I can wait that long!
Nano newb here coming from a MFLB, of which I've owned several over the past few years.
Perhaps I was a bit spoiled by MFLB's customer service—although I hear that has changed as of late—but has anyone else had any "issues" (that's probably too strong a word) with Epicvape's CS?
I received my Nano on Xmas eve, but I have yet to be able to use it yet due to the faulty power cord it arrived with (ok, technically I have tried it out with a PS3 power cord, but it gets too hot too quickly for regular use). It's now almost two weeks later and I still don't have a replacement… (although one is on the way).
I called and talked to Epicvape a couple of times. The woman I spoke to on the phone both times was very sweet and apologetic, but I am discouraged that, even after explaining the situation and my disappointment, they sent me through the warranty process to replace the cord. Moreover, I had to call back a week after submitting my RMA request because apparently the RMA didn't go through on Epic's end (although I did receive a confirmation email on my end causing me to believe it had already shipped). I guess I just thought that, given the situation and how disappointing it is to receive a (relatively) expensive Xmas gift that you can't use, Epicvape would've expedited shipping me a new cord or such… perhaps I'm being unreasonable? Is this normal for Epicvape?
Anyway, a bit disappointed for now, but I hope that will dissipate once I receive my new power cord (hopefully Monday). I'm really looking forward to using the Nano as my new daily driver! Thanks for all the wisdom and tips on this thread! Cheers!
You can DM @ACE OF VAPE here in the forum, he's always very responsive with any issues a customer may have.
Dont worry even though I can understand why
Epic vape is a 2-3 person company and they recently started updating their website .. might be couple of weeks ago but the sweet lady on the phone is working as IT, PR and probably other jobs inside Epic so that is why it can take some extra time
otherwise they have stellar customer service but just you know .. a tiny company
I think my own company website has not been updated for 2 years ... also a tiny company
also RMA can be chaotic around the holidays and new year
Thanks, y'all! This is reassuring on both counts. I'm just bummed I haven't been able to use my Nano yet, but I'm certainly looking forward to it.
no problem, I owned a Enano for 3-4 years now and hanged around this site ... this can be expected but people so used to having problem with their electronics made by multi-million dollar companies
not tiny vape companies
though there are horror stories with vapes companies and customer service also but not seen it happen here
So I used to smoke spliffs for years until about 2 months ago when I quit smoking everything. Then over the holidays, I finally decided that the only way I'd go back is to vape. After looking around for the ideal vape, I found this forum and finally came down to selecting the e-nano primarily due to so many touting its flavorful and milky smoke, plus the efficiency in maximizing very small amounts at a time.
So, one thing I liked about spliffs were that the tobacco/flower mix allowed me to have a leisurely smoke without getting too blasted (or using too much flower per session). Would you say that the way to come closest to that type of leisurely smoke would be to vape with a loosely packed stem at low heat? My preference is many puffs per session over few massive bong-like hits.
While I'm waiting for my nano to arrive (or even hear back from them...it's been a week!), I figured I could at least get some tips or see if it's even possible to come close to my desired style of vaping. I actually attempted to start at the beginning of this thread to find out info (and have found lots of useful info), but it'll take ages to sort through it all, so I figured I'd ask my specific question.
@360 welcome to the forum, the E-Nano is a great vaporizer. The sessions you're looking for is based on what number you set the dial and the size of your bowl by adjusting the screen in the stem.
@360 I use my Enano as a session vaporizer while others use theirs as a big 1 or 2 heavy hitter. It’s very easy to adjust the screen. The factory set screen is pretty right on though. In the beginning just practice with the amount of weed in the oven and tempretures. I would start off at temp 6 and move up or down your dial depending on what works well for you. Different electrical outlets vary too.
This unit will allow you to enjoy the various flavors in your weed. When you combusted all you experienced was smoke. This will give you thick flavorful vapor depending on your bud. I love a berry flavor like in GrapeApe or citrus taste like in Agent Orange.
Welcome to the fun and info.
Right now I have some very tasty shatter sandwiched between Gorilla Glue #4. Using my Walnut Enano - temp 6.5. I usually don’t go over 6.75. With strictly flowers I’m not over temp 6.5 for the most part. This is what I do: If my vapor is too harsh I turn the heat down. If I’m not getting enough vapor flavor I turn the temp up.
@BigJr48 Thanks! ha, yeah, that much I did gather from my perusing. I think I have a decent grasp on most of the variables at play, was just curious about what specifically works for folks to get the longer sessions so that I can come closest to my prior spliffing.
@CarolKing Thanks, I'm always glad to hear about more folk's experiences using it as a session vaper! Before, I was seeing a lot of people's descriptions of the quality of the flavor and density, but most people's vape style seemed more akin to bongs..which is cool...but I haven't used my bongs in years because I don't like the hit it and quit it approach. (although I DID still order a GonG adapter just to try out my old bongs and bubblers with this)
Thanks for your responses! (finally got my shipping notice, so I'm getting excited! ha)
My sessions are usually anywhere from 10 to 15 min. I like to relax and enjoy the experience. I’m with you @360 a one or two hitter isn’t enough. I like the act of vaporizing as well as the effects. I use cannabis for medical and as recreational. The nano gives me the great flavor along with a very good medicating tool.
Probably keeping your heat down with a session. A one or two hitter your heat would be higher with less weed. Some folks like to bring the screen up higher. I keep mine at the level that the factory stems have their screens set. There is the epic tool to help you with the amount of cannabis. If you use too much weed in the oven you will get a restricted draw because the bud is butted up against the heater. The bud in the oven shouldn’t be packed tight. That will give a restricted draw as well. The nano requires a loose pack.
NANO is practical!
How much are you usually using in a 10-15 minute session? And I'm assuming that's from multiple packings?
Like @CarolKing , I'm a session vaper. I enjoy the act of vaping and tasting my flowers almost as much as the after-effects.
One stem with the metal screen set at the recommended depth usually last me about 15 minutes which consists of maybe 5 to 7 good draws (depending on how fine the flower has been ground).
I use about 1/10 of a gram of a load size of flowers in the oven, that will last me for the entire session. It would depend on how big your draw is and your heat isn’t too hot. The Enano doesn’t need a lot to get the job done.
For me about 10 -12 draws. I don’t have huuuuge lung capacity.
I give mine a stir about half way through and sometimeS a second time.
Welcome @360 and nice job at trying to get through a bunch of the thread. At this point that would be a daunting task. Please note that when you click the "Plug In" section of the site, at the very top of the page is a category called the "Best Of". In there is a "best of" thread for the nano which covers some great info.
Also, a great move picking up a gong for your bubblers. I prefer the smoothness of going through water, but will use the stem in a pinch also.
A stem or J hook I believe favors a slower paced session where you can take small sips off the glass and spread out the experience. When I use a bubbler I take average sized hits, and like @hd_rider, usually get around 5 decent hits. I take a little break between each hit, drink some water (not the bong water ) and give it a stir sometimes. This slow method is my usual session, others like to sip their meds slowly, and then there are the lung-busters too. That's what makes the world go round, and the nano can do it all.
Be sure to let us know when you get it. Give it a good 20 min warm up before you start, then have at it.
I put a decent sized pinch into the stem at standard screen placement, give it a gentle tamp, and do a hit. One nice draw can over-do me. But the flavor is so good that sometimes it's hard to pull away.
I know that our reasons for using the nano are all different, and that no one size fits all, but I am always in awe of the many users who can handle sessions with the nano.
For me, a 'rec (but not really)' user, one solid hit on the nano pretty much takes care of me. I'll put in a pinch, hit it once moderately, then go back at some point later for a second moderate go. I'll give a final go at a later time if the thought occurs to me but that third hit is unusual. Two hits on the nano, strategically placed between the end of work and bedtime, and I tend to be ok. That's not 'lightly buzzed.' That's 'ok.'
I know that the Nano Beast can easily pull more out of the pinch that I put in, but I get so well taken care of with so little material that I can't begrudge a fresh pinch at the start of the next day's session.
That’s one of the reasons many of us like the Enano so much. It can be used many ways. Each of us can use it to fit our own individual needs.
This vaporizer doesn’t use a lot of product so you save money from the get go, if you’ve had a unit with a large oven. If you’ve come from combustion the amount you save could be more.
