    Mention the handle when you place your order and we'll throw one in. There's no word on a 4/20 discount but we've always had one before.
    We've also just made these available.

    They load about 2 mm of herb in a bowl, 1/2 bowl and a full bowl.

    Sorry if the question has been posted already, but I'm in pinch and could not find straight answer quickly.

    I have the opportunity to buy a lotus v1 second hand (I think v1 since it has no patent no° on the back) the plate as aesthetic dents as well. It's unused however.

    I would like to get this unit, however I wonder how big the difference in performance is between all the different models.

    I only vape flowers, occasionally hasj but not often. So the high temp is not essesntial in other words.

    Low budget vaper but like to get value for my coin.

    Cheers and thanks for helping in advance

    You'll be fine. I still use my og plate (with the grooves), and my lotus is my go to for hash... so if it's mainly flower, occasionally hash no prob. Good to fluff up with heat/break up if it's hard hash, and I flatten soft hash into as thin disk and place in a bed of flower (or cotton/hemp fibre) to vape it.

    Thanks for the very fast reply, very exited to expand my butane collection.

    Quick and final follow-up question: If I wished to change plates, will the V4 version fit the V1 for example? Or will I need original V1 plates for the V1?

    Cheers

    The new plates will fit you're old body, no problem, they're all the same size. It's the construction/materials around and under the plate that is different in the high temp versions... mainly to stop the wood charring iirc

    Did Lotus finally clear their old stock? I know they were offering some great deals on the older model that might compete with used...

    We still have some stock of the original vapor cap. We even have the original sunburst hot plates if you want to dress up your Lotus.

    I’ve got two high-temp caps in the family, I use mine semi-daily and my mother uses her’s as her DD, both are a bit over a year old and besides a bit of anadizing from the heat look and function as good as the day we got them. I bet they have another couple years in them, at least!


    @Max Jitter I still find myself choosing the lotus constantly over other, more expensive vapes in my collection, it truly does hold itself amongst the best!

    Herbal cap was the one before the high temp concentrate cap.

    Edit- my above statement is incorrect, check post below.

    Actually the herbal cap is the newest. The only difference between the two besides the black Lotus ring is the spacer under the hot plate. Black cap has a metal spacer, herbal has a silicone oring, which lets it heat up faster than the black cap.

    Try the J-hook kit. The glass stem lets you see the vapor production for a short learning curve.
    Below is a prototype of our newest stem. The main tube is aimed at your eye, for a really good view of the vapor. Fun to use, the vapor is mesmerizing.

    Hopefully it will be ready for sale in a few weeks.

    Good afternoon, Children of the Lotus. I am extremely tempted to get an Herbal Cap to compliment my High Temp cap. I can then use the High Temp for the bubble hash I have on hand every so often, and use the Herbal as a DD. My only concern is the silicone ring since I’ve found silicone to be the weakest link taste wise in some vapes. So for those that have the herbal cap, is any flavor imparted from the silicone?

    @Max Jitter That is a cool looking piece!

    We bake the silicone at 375 for 30 minutes to eliminate smells, but see what others say.

    ...i've never had any silicone smells or taste from any of my lotus... and i've never thought of doing any kind of 'burn-off' with this one... i have even used concentrates with my og/herb cap...


    ...this is my favourite 'butane' vape... came in handy on Sunday during the hydro outages....
