    Quick question - what do y'all use as a "loading" container (to scoop or suck up into a stem)?

    I typically grind up a week's worth at a time and put it in a small round aluminum jar like these, but they're not airtight.

    I'd like something glass, short, 2.5-3 inches in diameter, and airtight.

    Whatcha got for me?

    +1 on those for short term storage. Here's my trusty model.

    https://www.amazon.com/Ball-4-Ounce...ll+mason+jars&qid=1556849342&s=gateway&sr=8-3

    I do have to say that my little stash jar sits lonely since I've transitioned to rosin and other concentrates, but that's not the jar's fault. It is the perfect size for 1-2 weeks worth of ground herb, airtight which keeps it fresh. The jar is short enough that you can use your gong as a straw and suck up a gong's worth of the devil's lettuce.
    I pair it with one of these.
    https://www.ebay.com/itm/Boveda-RH-...672750&hash=item33c6293cd3:g:7hwAAOSwJtNcfZAp

    They are the little ones and they fit perfectly and maintain the best humidity... for a jar that gets opened a lot.
    In fact, I use it as a little partition in the jar, where the opposite sides of the jar have two different strains. Or one side is ground while the other sports a few whole buds.

    I got a sticker on it that says "the daily grind".

    Any-who, I just vaped some Critical Kush wax through the nano and my large bubbler. Such a pleasant session to relax and enjoy. :spliff:

    Woah! My 4/20 Order came in, sweet sweet 18mm GonG's!

    And wow, the Ice stem is awesome! The beads move around? That's cool...ice cool! :brow:


    Click to play YouTube Video


    Man it's super smooth using the appropriately sized GonG's! And these look a little thicker than the last ones I got, deinitely more hefty than the 14mm one.

    And that Sun & Moon Stash Jar is really nice! Really ties the setup together...will take a pic once I have something to fill it with worth showcasing it properly :lol:

    Unfortunately I'm a bit sick at the moment so i can't fully enjoy the §$%&%$? items :lol:

    Happy weekend frients!

    I actually have some of those, but I'm looking for something shorter so it will fit in my travel kit (foam-padded pistol case) without needing to remove some of the foam. Plus I grind a week's worth at a time and do not go through that much in a week, so I don't need something that big.

    I think I've heard the name tossed around, but I'll check it out and see if they have something in the size I want. Thanks!

    ETA: just looked at Jyarz and they don't have what I'm after: short but wide. I don't suck the weed into the stem - I scoop it (it's just how I prefer to do it). The tin containers I have now are 2.7" wide x 0.8" high. That's the perfect size but they don't close airtight. I want something close to that size but airtight.

    They make airtight silicone containers for freezing and storing hamburger patties that are about that size?

    I like Interplanetary Development's storage jars. I vacuum seal in quart mason jars my "long term" quantities (and store in cool dark place); then I keep smaller amounts like an 8th in a ID 100ml jar for "short term" storage, and then I have a couple of 50ml jars where I store fresh ground material - my "use now" jars. After "use now" is gone, get some from "short term", and when "short term" is gone it's time to get out the scale the mason jars and the vacuum sealer.

    Non-legal state so I usually buy whole ounces when available. I have a few strains on hand of varying amounts.

    What do you use as a scoop? I cut a plastic straw in half on a diagonal so it makes a scoop. It works really well, each scoop of the straw is about 1/2 a load and it is easy to drop into the stem, but it's not very elegant.

    "I just scoop with the gong or stem..........maybe he means that? "

    Of course, you're right. That's why he needs a wide and shallow container.

    I also scoop manually or suck it up if I'm using the dry stem. The GonG's are too gross for me to suck on, so scoopin' is usually what I do.

    Aside from being sick it's been a great few days, took a few days off work and progressed in scientific endeavors haha, and the 4/20 order came the other day (superfast:rockon:). Thanks @nadia_epic @ACE OF VAPE & @epic_arii !


    Also in a nonrecreational state so bud-variety is usually low, sadly, but I'm lucky that the "baseline" is at least some really well tended OG Amnesia...it tastes like you would imagine neon green tastes :rofl:
    And it's over 20% THC IIRC so I sometimes mix it with some X-18 or pure CBD flowers to make it more daytime friendly haha. It's kind of like making a little mixer drink, like beer & sparkling fruit juice or rum n coke :lol: , I don't drink anymore though so maybe the analogies are too outdated ;)


    Also, the Ice Stem fits into the Arizer Air 2 (so, all arizer handhelds), although it is a bit loose. I might try that later :hmm:

    Oh, and the main thing I actually wanted to say was that I hooked up my Lava Lamp to the same plug as the nano, so I can always tell very easily if it's on or not (to prevent accidentally leaving it on overnight) hehe

    Newvape has some elegant versions of your scoop in metals.
    I have this one I bought to go on my carb cap, but the threading was different so I just put a Fender tremelo bar plastic thingy on the handle. Fits in the stems and gongs nicely.
    Pax loading tool is also a popular one around FC.
    Use code "welcomeback" there for 10% off.

    Hope everyone is having a great weekend.
    Working with some Maui Wowie getting scooped into my @Ed's TnT s stem with my threaded loading tool from Newvape.

    Does any one know if or when those stems with the beads are coming back?

    I just scoop with the nano stem. You get used to how much to use over time. Nano needs free flowing air so don’t pack tight. If it’s too tight of a draw you used too much material. Just take some out. A very easy vaporizer to use and maintain. Keep the screen clean!

    Edit
    I keep my material in my grinder or put it in a small airtight wooden container and scoop it out with my stem.
    I buy cannabis in small amounts and they are kept in small glass jars that have a screw on lid. Before legal I used small mason jars and a cVault for long term storage.

    Exactly! An airtight glass jar that's ~2.5 inches in diameter and 1 inch tall is what I'm after.

    The hunt continues!

    If so, search "8 oz ball jars" on your favorite buy site (Amazon, eBay, whatever)

    How tall is that? If the 4 oz jelly jars are too tall, I have to think the 8 oz would be as well (even with the wide mouth). I would like something literally 1-1.5 inches tall.

    @scooterboy: I would suggest a jar of baby food, simply clean it well and dry it and you’re good to go. It’s a very cheap option, I’ve used one myself and you’re not going to get much smaller in a “traditional” glass jar form.

    There are also those small concentrate containers but they might not be quite big enough:

    I can’t vouch for the website or jar but it looks like it fits your criteria:
