    I've been told that vaporized material is basically unusable after being vaporized. My Vaporizer gets really gummed up after several uses and when I clean it, I scrape out a lot of resin from the ceramic bowl. This resin and other gunky stuff I clean out of it appears to be regular resin like in any pipe or smoking device. I'm not supposed to put wax or liquids in it, which I don't but the material turns into a more waxy or liquid form. I do attempt to grind up the material as fine as possible, but this doesn't seem to matter. Will this bi-product harm my vaporizer?
    And one other thing. It seems like when one exhales after a vape hit, that smoke is what is exhaled. I thought there was no smoke produced using a vaporizer...... Thanks for any answers %^)

    Welcome to FC! What vaporizer are you using? The substance you speak of will amaze you when vaped properly. Most vapes that aren't oil based can be used by creating a sandwich of flower oil flower.

    It's actually just vapor condensation that collects. You can eat or revape it, it is perfectly safe and a nice stoned high. If you let it build up too much it can cause problems but that depends on which vape you use.

    What you see when you exhale is vapor. As the vapor cools the molecules such l stick together until they become visible so you are actually seeing a mist of condensing vapor.

    Perhaps the heat is too high assuming the herb that comes out of the chamber is black/grey ash instead of actually browned ABV- I got a buddy into vaping pretty recently and he asked what was up with my jar full of brown crap... :rolleyes:
    Assuming you're getting good vapor production, and not actual smoke; that reclaim(resin) leftover is fantastic when you put a dab or 2 of it in your herb.
    edit- i'm slow

    This.

    Sounds like mine and everyone else's experience when putting flowers in a shitty thing labeled as a vaporizer pen. Definitely need to know which vaporizer you are using though in order to help properly :)

    I am using a FlashVape. They're made in Canada. I think the concept is good, but I've never seen another one before it, except those E-Cigs. I am amazed at how much crap the device filters out of the product and glad it's no longer going into my lungs. I'm just kind of upset now, cause I've discarded much of the bi product, which is very dark brown and black. Anyway thanks so much for all your answers. I am pleased. And upset. lol

    Oh the FlashVape is the size of a regular flash light, and looks like one too.

    Salutations Vap0RiceMe1,

    It sounds like you may be confusing what's left in the FV bowl versus some nice honey-colour cannabic vapor deposits once temperature has droped sufficiently (condensation), just a short distance away from the vaporisation chamber. Be careful what you reclaim, tar can be generated using high temperatures!...

    :peace:

    Is tar bad ? Idk the difference between tar and resin. How do you know? Before the FV, I would save up everything i scrapped out of my pipe for later use. Was that bad to be smoking? It wasn't very often of course, but it would be good to know what to save and what to toss.

    Salutations Vap0RiceMe1,

    Tar smells bad and it doesn't taste any better!

    Nothing can come out of it but headaches. Resin is a radically different substance, while tar is found in vegetal residues left behind, e.g. mostly in the bowl i believe.

    The "honey" or "reclaim" stuff results from condensed cannabic vapor, past the bowl... Consequently, while most of the tar would be found in that bowl these things don't readily compare!

    :peace:

    This we refer to as ABV (already been vaped), can be used in cooking recipes (in fact there are a few on this site). Its whats left after you vape:

    This is condensed vapor, very potent and already activated, eat or cook with it:

    What is that shown in the bowl ? If that's what's left in your bowl after vaping, then I'm concerned about what's in mine. I will upload a photo. Thanks

    1. If your using one of those "pens".....those are not Vaporizers......they are just electronic pipes. I have yet to use one that vapes. 2. I clean my FF after every smoke, so I dont know what this resin is you speak of, just clean your tools lol.
