    Seriously never knew I could get this kind of effect from a portable vape. About to order myself an E-Nano for more clouds. Not only did I get very handy info from FC on reclaiming/cleaning and on which vapes to use, but I managed to get myself the glass piece pictured as well as the custom GonG being used on my PNP in this picture from members here.

    Cheers and clouds,

    Man I still find myself doing the same from time to time, mostly because my PNP ended up having issues which led me to get rid of it. When I get a new on the go vaporizer (Persei with herc), I'm sure that'll change.

    Remember, if you want to ditch smoking joints; you need something just as convenient to replace it with (at least IME). My E-Nano replaced me smoking at home because with 4 different gongs, I can use it to vape multiple bowls much quicker and with less preparation than a joint or smoking a bong even (Nano is always on, always heated to the right temp!).

    On the other hand, my PNP could not satisfy at high heats and did not give me any of the high heat effects which are the reason I medicate. It failed to completely replace and I relapsed into smoking j's.

    My reasoning with buying the Persei/Herc is that I can use my favourite viscous oil mixed with kief into a waxy ball consistency, load up plenty into the hercules attachment and vape that for the rest of the week. So much quicker than preparing tobacco with flowers for a joint. So much better tasting than burning tobacco and flowers. So much more efficient (way more high from concentrates than flowers, way less toking in public required to get you where you need to go). Basically I am hoping that if you replace combusting out and about with vaping concentrates through an attachment which allows you to load a good few days worth in one hit, that you will never need to resort to combusting!

    I smoke concentrate once, it is not really developed in Europe... I bought a honeybee to make oil some but I do not feel confident at all doing it, I gonna blow the butane to my face...
    I am using .3 to .5g for a spliff with tobaco, about an ounce a week. This really hurts my wallet.

    I tried a VIP1.3 but the chamber is really tiny and you can get 2 or 3 real puff then it is done, so not convenient at all. Never tried pure gold to put in my e cig. That could help because for cigarettes, I can stick to e cig as long as there is no cigarette around me or in the house. But then I want to smoke a splif and I go buy papers and tobacco which is dumb.

    I started vaporizing Jan 1, 2013 with the No. 2. I used to smoke from this little wooden pipe and joints, until a friend introduced me to vaping. Then I watched a video on YouTube with Vitolo trying out the No. 2. He had me sold.


    Now 5 different vaporizers later, I never looked back. No set backs for me. I cannot imagine smoking a joint or a reg pipe again.

    It was the best thing I ever did for myself. My herb bill was cut in half. So much more healthier. I had started wheezing and developing a bit of a caugh in the mornings, that is gone now.

    I went from smoking bongs/joints every day (atleast 4-5 grams a day) for over 2 years, ended up in a shit mental & financial state. I quit for 2 years and got my shit together, found a partner, got a job and had a daughter, and now I just vape non-psychoactive herbs at the end of the day with my partner. (Mint, Damiana, Blue Lily etc)

    before switching over to vaporizing, i consistently smoked around .3 grams/day. not a heavy habit but enough to make me wish there were a healthier alternative. tried a vaporbrothers box and a volcano several years ago and for whatever reason i just wasn't impressed. bought a mflb last august and it was so easy for me to completely quit combusting. i really enjoy procedures and ceremony, and vaping certainly delivers in that respect. vaping has become just as much about the process and enjoyment of the flavor profile of the herb (a lot harder to enjoy the taste of smoke) as it has become about the effect. with the wide variety of strains available in medical states and vaporizing gaining more cred in the mainstream, i think it will certainly become the future.

    Big improvement, only 2 joints in a week! I try to stick on the SSV with a small WT, got the job done :)

    I feel it is also depends a LOT on what kind of stuff you vaporize, I wish I was living in Colorado...

    I agree. The flavors can be so delicious, and it's possible to discriminate more between them with vaping as compared with combusting. When the bud is fresh it really pops out as well; almost feels as healthy as eating your veggies!

    My friend, don't use butane if you don't feel confident. Also, sorry for not noticing this reply! I have been very busy and very medicated/lubricated (that's the correct terminology with oils, right :p ). Try out QWISO and QWET.

    QWISO instructions: www.skunkpharm.com/qwiso

    QWET instructions: www.skukpharm.com/qwet
    http://fuckcombustion.com/threads/easy-to-read-skunk-pharm-qwet-instructions.14177/

    Remember, you can make excellent concentrates with any solvent. PM me if you give one of these a try, happy to help out with advice if you need it :)

    @Deja Vu : Welcome fellow Aussie :) Glad to hear you managed to get yourself productive and happier, and have what sounds like a great family now to show for it as well :)

    I figured I'd update here. I got VAS badly when I joined this place. I sold my PNP (by the way, never buy a PNP), not only because of the obvious and well known design issues.

    TVB have disgusted me with their service (or lack thereof) and there are too many great, reliable vendors around FC that you can directly get to know and who are far more helpful/stand behind their products.

    I am now the proud owner of several Persei's (and every accessory but the core pretty much), a Solo, an exotic E-nano and a Lotus for backup. I still have my signature LW bubbler (which I can't bear to be apart from lol) and a grav labs reclaimer/dome/ti gr2 nail, a quartz castle nail, a hexxus purple skull worked blowtorch and a fuckload of oil slicks.

    I cannot encourage others to get into oils enough! Concentrates changed my life. Killed my insomnia, killed my long term, 16 year chronic depression. I still use flowers to give me an appetite (@Caligula and I have been pontificating on the possibility that my extracts are high in THCV, which might account for the appetite restricting effects).

    I yearn for the day we have better, scientific and peer reviewed documentation of the effects of each cannabinoid/terpenoid as well as the entourage effects/which constituent terps interact to create the entourage effect!

    Also looking forward to using this new Mango Madness strain to make concentrates with. The pine-iest smelling herb I've ever had, must be loaded with pinene and hence a brochodilator and provider of extra lung absorption for the other goodies therein :D

    Don't mind me guys, I am trailing off into mad scientist mode again lol :science:

    I may look into extracts as a result of reading that nice post :) Cheers. And thank you, the family is a blessing! (sometimes in disguise lol)

    The pleasure is all mine mate :) from one fellow non animal consumer to another :)

    You can extract the essential oils of other herbs (oregano springs to mind, oil of oregano is a good natural food preservative as well as a very mild antibiotic, absolutely not able to be substituted for pharmaceutical antibiotics to treat serious infections, but may well be effective to vaporize to treat and prevent food poisoning type stomach upsets) using the methods I have quoted above as well.

    However, it may be best to seek out other resources where people have explored these methods with the specific herbs you like to use :) the chemical make-up of other herbs may be drastically different!

    Nice one man :) 8 years or so of veganism for me :)

    I returned here to happily report that I have kicked combustion again, I kept smoking joints out of habit long after I intended to give them the boot. However, with my newfound concentrates and the deliciousness of vaping in general, I have found smoke to taste intolerable now. I regret every single doobie that I give a viking's funeral to now!

    Yay for FC!
