    What are all the attachments and when do we use them?

    I am looking to understand all the different things I can do with wax/budder/shatter.

    Currently I have the cartridges that I can pack, (Load as You go?)...but I see all these other "cartridges with different names like cartomizer, clearomizer, atomizer...etc.

    How do I get my shatter/was/budder into these long clear cartridge? are these only for oil? can my stuff be turned to oil? I am so confused...

    can someone help me out so I stop sounding like an idiot?

    Clearomizers and Cartomizers are for ejuice- but you can apparently get some kind of cannabis-ejuice called Pure Gold if you're lucky/have a dispensary nearby with it. Afaik atomizers are the only ones that can be used for shatter/wax

    Afaik? is that a brand or form?

    am I wrong calling an atomizer a cartridge?

    You're fine, most folks would see "cartridge" as "chamber"- whether it be LL (loose leaf, or herb) EO (essential oils, or wax/shatter) or EL (E-liquid- this is the nicotine ejuice one- which is what a clearomizer or cartomizer are(clearomizer is just a clear plastic cased version of a cartomizer- which tends to have a metal casing/sleeve))

    Hopefully this 'clearo-s' a little up for you...

    Pure Gold is nothing like E Juice. You will clog up an E Juice cartomizer by trying to run straight PG through it.
