I just wanted to briefly mention the importance of drying & curing, specifically to people new to vaporizing that might not have a reliable supply of cannabis from places such as a professionally ran and operated dispensary (where you don't have to be as concerned with the issue of optimal drying/curing as you would if you get it from an anonymous home-grower and/or a disreputable dispensary). When I first started vaporizing I started out with the SGG (whip) SSV, but only had a connection to a supplier who, at the time, was supplying cannabis that wasn't dried and cured properly. The problems associated with smoking semi-dried/cured cannabis are almost non-issues compared to the trouble you'll experience vaping, which can trick people that are new to vaporizing into believing their technique is incorrect or there is a problem with their unit without realizing the problem is actually with their herb. When you try and vape improperly dried and cured cannabis with the S(silver)SV (whip), it seems like you either don't get even close to what you should out of it, or you get it so hot it just combusts with very little variance in between green and on fire. This might sound like to a lot of you that I'm preachin' to the choir here, but this is a severe enough problem that I know of people that it has completely turned against vaping without realizing their problems can be solved simply by purchasing cannabis that is optimally dried and cured. Perhaps someone will read this that had similar problems and they'll decide to give vaping another chance. Edit: The success part of the story is that I have successfully converted people from smoking to vaping, who tried vaping and initially hated it, and now prefer vaping so much that they no longer smoke at all. Edit #2: As far as success stories with vaporizing improperly dried/cured cannabis, I use to own a VX Cloud which did seem to more successfully vape that kind of cannabis than the Silver Surfer did, but I still prefer the SSV to the Cloud for the ease/quickness of use with optimally dried/cured cannabis and the quality of the components and reliability in comparison to my VX Cloud which spontaneous died only months into owning it.
