^^ Nice for those that don't have their Nano or Finishing Grinder.
I've been using a LB as my daily driver since the end of January. The screen seems to run a bit hot after cleaning, some members say the screens get broken in with use, I would have to say I agree.
Finally dialed in my technique with the power adapter and orbiter, milking awesome clouds at 50% power that launch me into some serious flight.
Still waiting for my finishing grinder.
Now I can't stop drooling over a lotus for my orbiter ever since KidFated posted his picture of this combination.
Hey guys new here I've had my mflb for a few months now and also have a fair bit of kief is it ok to use it in the mflb or will it clog up.
ya you can use kief i just throw it on top of a trench and good to go. some say you can also use the solids concentrate tray. as for me I just loaded a freshy salad of Green Crack, Purple Kush (soil) and some kief on top. I just had knee surgery and my box has been my go to right now. love it for those quick tasty hits. no long sessions.
Quick question for the MFLB folks: I just ordered a CVAULT with humidipac. Is 62% RH dry enough for the LB? Or does "dryness" depend upon how the herbs were cured? Ok, that's two questions.
In all the years that I've been using MJ (and believe me, it's a LOT of years), I have never used humidpacs for fear of mold, and they HAVE been known to do this. For me, I would much rather risk some bud being a bit dry than totally ruining my stash with the possibility of mold. I have stored bud in dark, cool airtight containers for over a year without any degradation in potency, just some loss of taste due to a bit of dryness.
The LB, like ALL vapes, vapes a bit better with dry bud, but after the first hit or two, the bud is going to be dryer than when it was first put in the vape anyway.
ya I agree with @lwien some dispensaries put that shit in there jars of bud and to me its just not needed. I like my bud on the dryer side for vaping. just the fact that theres more chance of mold with those things kinda scares me.
Yup. The risk/reward ratio, for me, tilts to far into the risk category.
Just ordered some concentrate trays, which tray is used for qwiso?.. TIA
id proly used the unscreened tray first with qwiso, unless its really pure and full melt. someone else may have a better opinion
Got my new MFLB last night and used throughout today. I really like this vape. Here are my thoughts:
1) Love the design (especially the small size), and yes, I do believe love is greater than fear!
2) Hate the O ring. Took it out immediately...much easier to use. Just can't forget to pull it out a bit after each draw. lol
3) Native or stem, the ease of draw blows my Solo out of the water.
4) The fact that it is almost instant vaporization means I only use herb when I am drawing. I like this -- means I should conserve more product.
5) This vape seems to need a bit drier herb than the other vapes I've used. Herb was ground up using the finishing grinder.
***Anyone have any tips to dry out your herb? How bout a dehydrater?
6) I did experience a little combustion after taking 3 quick, successive draws. I was a bit surprised by this, and went back to slower, longer draws.
So far I am very pleased. Glad to be a part of this community.
I leave my goodies out overnight on a piece of clean paper. Seems to be enough for me, in the morning the flower is notably less moist.
Hey all . I mentioned this in my MJ Journey thread but I figure here it will get more input. Anyone here use low temps and/or have low tolerance use the MFLB? I keep coming back around to it as a "purse vape" no matter how many other models I look at. I need something compact, butane/flame free, and on the lower end of the price range which it fits very well.
My concern is learing to control the temp. Most How To's on it say to go by visual (the wisps of vape in the chamber area) but I rarely see whisps or clouds in my solo so I don't think I can rely on that. The solo is great and I love the accuracy but its not a "quit hit while im out" vape.
Now that im finding daytime strains im getting frustrated with carrying a bigger purse and having to wrap/pad it up safe. Im getting relief from MJ and want to be able to enjoy it outside my house in a bit more stealth. Is it possible for a low tolerance and temp user (usually do two hits at a time on level 2 solo) to use the MFLB without constantly getting overly medicated?
I left my goodies out once, I was kinda drunk. It didn't work out well and had to spend the night with some very unpleasant people and talk to the judge about it the next day. I take it he hears about that kind of stuff a lot, he had some pretty firm ideas on the matter.
I don't drink any more.
maybe we have the same low tolerance. I use my MFLB since nearly a full year now and can fully recommend it to low dose users. I have no experiences with other vaporizers but with the MFLB i switched from only combustion to only MFLB in no time.
I highly recommend the finishing grinder and super dry herbs. I load a trench with around 0.2g herb and hit it as followed:
5 seconds pre heat, 5 seconds very slow straw with not fully closed lips on stem and still pressed battery, and then another 5 seconds without the battery just soaking up the steam left.
With this technique my trench lasts for 14-18 hits where 2 hits in a row medicate me nicely for 2 hours. i usually dont exceed 4 hits a day and dont toke every day. a trench usually last for a week, minimum a half.
The amount of hits seem to depend on the quality of my weed. Good homegrown with intense care raised and lovely cured buds last 18 hits. Average Commercial Weed tends to last 14 hits.
The first 4 hits are very intensive and tastefully but low on vapor.
The hits between 5 and 10 are nearly tasteless but hit as intense as the first, slightly more vapor.
Hits 11 to 18 getting harsher in taste, approaching the burned popcorn taste, slightly decreasing medication but more vapor.
As you can see, my tolerance seems pretty low but maybe it helps you to compare it to your Solo Experience.
For me the MFLB was a game changer. Coming from combustion in type of tobacco mixed sticks, the MFLB was my way out of this awful tobacco addiction without the need to give up the lovely herb. This alone is still making me speechless at times, plus the benefits in terms of better taste and more efficience usage of the herb equals in the perfect tiny stealth toking device which i fell in love with.

I'm a low temperature/low tolerance guy and I love my LBs. If you have experience with vapourizing then you should be able to master the LB quickly. I don't think I ever relied on watching for the vapour, although perhaps I did the first couple of times. I found that it didn't take long to learn how to judge by taste and temperature. The worst part of the learning experience is actually reaching combustion, because the LB will taste awful for a few loads afterwards. The taste does go away eventually.
from my recent experience, 5sec steps could be a touch too long sometimes. it depends on the battery in case, of course. with a fully loaded glyph, 5sec preheat followed by a 5sec slow draw would definitely take me to combustion.
I dunno about you guys but 5 seconds with zero draw would be some insane charting in mine, and i haven't cleaned them ever.. Its like 2 second heat up and micro draws to control temp. Usually gotta draw about 2 seconds after to get the remaining vapor that's around thelid.
Wow. I heat for 8-10, draw for 12-13, then pull the battery and go another 2-3 seconds. That gets me 10-12 hits. Guess I'll try backing off a bit when I get home. This is with glyphs that are only a few months old.
And you don't ever combust using this technique?
No. Only combusted once, when I first got it several years ago. Heard someone coming and tossed the thing with the battery still in place.
It depends on both battery like you said, and each person's Launch Box. They tend to break in as I'm sure you know, so maybe that's why he can hold it for 5 seconds. I think 5 seconds on mind would be approaching combustion, but then it also depends on how moist the material is.
Welcome to the party @horst, glad to hear you were able to quit combusting and tobacco
It's a miracle then my box would send smoke signals with these Intervalls.
I'll alert the Vatican! Maybe mine needs a thorough cleaning, or would that make it hotter?
If it works for you and you're happy with your timings, why would you change anything?
