    So the stopper on my cloud buddy will not come off. I've tried applying warm and cold temperature to loosen the glass to no avail. Thoughts ?

    Is your stopper ground glass or smooth?

    Have you tried oozing a little bit of ISO in to the joint? My stopper is smooth glass, that's the only reason I asked.

    Thanks for the suggestion. I have attempted to ooze everything from oil to ISO in but nothing has worked successfully so far.
    Wish I could get this piece back on top of my glass!

    Throw it in the freezer if possible for like 15-20 mins

    Not if it's cooled down and not hot.

    This. If it doesn't budge put it down for a while and try again. 5 minutes could make a huge difference IME.

    I recommend taking a wooden spoon, and lightly tapping all around the joint. This usually will loose the seal with little to no chance of breakage if you do it gently.

    You could try some heat on the outside of the joint. Not long enough to heat the stopper. The idea is to heat the joint and it may expand slightly, just enough to remove the stopper.
