    I don't think you'll get an answer from that company here.

    This is my plan once my pay check comes through. I am getting a KISS cart ASAP. Did not know Dr. Dabber had TI coils though...thanks!

    Got my V2 cart with me today. The regular not the mega. I've cleaned it and reloaded it with some shitty shatter I didn't want to use in the cera EO. This thing handles it just fine.

    I know there is a lot of hate but mine taste really good and work very well. I'm not sure why all the hate, but the materials look and taste good to me so far.

    I signed up for free sample they were offering and long story short... overnight delivery .... been 6 weeks and still not even processed. contacted them both (gentlemans and natureswaydelivery) and natureswaydelivery wont even respond and this is the last email regarding this from gentlemens ....

    "Hey, I agree. Unfortunately the collective business is a young industry, however any purchases should definitely be attended to no questions asked.

    Back in the day Gentleman's had a free e-juice program. Never saw one ML of juice ever show up at my door. Probably safe to say that this company just isn't worth anyone's time, and they may indeed be into phishing for information to sell.

    I'm sorry for your disappointment, Chrisc.

    I got my V2 Cartridges today...I understand how to prime it but after its primed...

    Can I just put shatter and wax into the cartridge in its solid state form? or do I need to melt the wax and shatter into the cartridge?

    I was under the impression after I prime the cartridge that I can just shove wax in without melting it.

    I recently got a couple V2's. Using a ego T vv pen, I put it on the lowest setting, drop a piece of wax across the ceramic wick, and slowly melt it, then melt a few more pieces on top, and then hit it. That seems to prime it good enough. I thought it was kind of a pain in ass to melt wax/oil drop by drop into the chamber. I think as long as you coat the coil with oil before you hit it or keep the button pressed for too long your OK. I've never "burned" a cart before doing it this way.

    Besides priming, do you melt everything into the V2 carts? For my routine I am loading pieces of wax directly into the cartridge...but it gets stuck everywhere and doesn't all vape...not sure if I like these or not.

    I try to keep the wax level with the coil. When I add too much it will clog the air path and I have to heat it up and draw on it to pop open the airway. You can use a toothpick to push everything down into the cart.

    But do you melt your wax into the cartridge? the instructions say you need to melt everything into these cartridges.

    Or do you just drop flakes of wax str8 into it?

    No, melting wax in drop by drop was a pain in the ass for me. I just drop pieces directly onto the coil. If you have to move the pieces around you can use a toothpick. I've heard that you can load the cart to the halfway point but it gets hard to clear the airway. It seems to work better for me to keep a smaller amount of wax in the cart. When it gets low I drop some more in and melt it, then hit it. I definitely get bigger hits using a glass globe setup with a wick cart but I think the v2 tastes a little better, I haven't used it enough to tell yet. I'll give my opinion of the v2 after I get it good and broke in and see how long it lasts. I can buy the cheapo ceramic nails with wicks and clean them with Everclear or Iso and they will last me months. I don't use them heavily though.

    I have the V2 cartridges...would these work well for CO2 oil that is in a syringe?

    can I load it up to the top of the cartridge and will it flow down as its used? Or will I make a huge mess and have CO2 spilling everywhere?

    can i put CO2 oil on the glass globe atomizer? or is it to liquid-like?

    Hey Jman, let me answer some of your questions:
    1. the CO2 oil should work fine. Just vape at a low voltage setting
    2. you cant load to the top, try and load 1/4 of the way full. It works best when the coil is submerged but not drowning.
    3. Again, as long as you keep it at a low temp, your oil should be fine.

    Thanks for buying Gentleman's Brand and happy vaping!

    @GentlemansVapes Do we need to prime the glass globe nails? I couldn't find any instructions for my glass globe nail but I know your manual for the V2 says you NEED to prime.

    Anyways, I forgot to prime the nail I'm using now but it still works. Before loading it with anything I hit the button for a second just to make sure the nail worked before loading any concentrate. Once I realized it worked I loaded it up and hit it...but I forgot to prime. Will there be "permanent damage" on the globe nail like the V2 manual talks about?

    Received my V2 Mega Cart in the mail today. I put a test load through it after priming and feel that they should elevate the insulation material into a bit of a cone because everything will sit around the coil instead of make it actually inside the coil making it a pain to keep adjusting the contents.

    Thought it would make it easier to go through longer sessions without having to refill, seems just like more maintenance.

    Will probably stick to regular atomizers as I feel like im wasting my wax.

    I used to be a big gent's fan and would get the V2 myself, until I tried the KISS, then ended up using that for a while... Then about two weeks ago I got the Orb...which has wickless atomizers but they are wrapped around a ceramic rod, and its double coil. The replacements are less than $30 for a five pack. The coils are also titanium, the whole thing just hits harder and tastes better. I still use my gents but only until the oil in it is done, the replacements arent so good. I would check out the Orb if you are considering wickless hash carts

    I have a hard time believing that the ORB is using better materials than the KISS....but I could be wrong. The design looks dope. They should do a double coil on the KISS, it would be perfect, no more scooping oil back onto the coil.

    I do agree that the V2 carts from Gentleman's are a dissapointment. What was more dissapointing was their lack of support and customer service, I have so many tickets that went unanswered. The fact that @THC SCIENTIFIC is so active with customers, it makes me much more confident in the company, and certainly a reflection of the product. The KISS is my favorite cartridge hands down, I started off hating it because I had bad luck...i take it all back, its the BEST. Everything else, including V2, just tastes bad. They taste like they are off-gassing something (metal, plastic, something!) into the vapor. Especially with cheap atomizers, I can't even hit the cheap pens my friends have because it has got to be bad for you to inhale. I worry about the materials a lot of these people use, something must be off-gassing and it can't be good for you to be inhaling! Nobody knows whats going to happen if you have been vaping on cheap metal and plastic for 10 years...your brain will have some issues for sure.

    Just got my Gentleman's V2. Primed it. Added a little chunk of waxy and tried to hit it. Smallest cloud ever. Tried a few more his. Nothing. Opened it up and its pretty much empty. What happened? I'm vaping at 3.2. Am i supposed to fill this thing or something so it is drowning in a pool of wax or is it supposed to work with a little chunk? I admit i am new to concentrates and pens so I probably don't know what I am doing. It appears to have just melted qwuickly and vanished rather and smoking or vaping up a bit.

    Same thing happened to me. Gentleman's is not good.

    The v2 either wastes all your oil in a split second or it makes a huge mess. When it does hit the hit is weak. I would throw them away and buy a ti-KISS cartridge.
