    Just like the title states, I see a lot of e-cig questions being dropped around in other threads intended for mainly concentrate usage discussions, so I figured a thread about e-cigs and what people are using was in order. So there we have it, when I get home I'll try to post up some pics of my current set up, let the discussing commence!

    (Hopefully this is a good / acceptable place for this topic)

    Great topic should help keep some of the clutter out of closely related threads.

    I am currently running my juice setup on a nemesis mech mod, 18650 mode, with a sony vtc5, topped with a chimbus rda wrapped with dual nano dragon 26ga kanthal coils, and cotton wicks. It's clocking in at about .25 ohms and pushin around 70 watts hot off the charger. Flavor is good, vapor is dense but it can eat through juice pretty quick. I am thinking about wrapping a stovetop this weekend if I have time.

    I used to have a dual dragon as well, but it was with 28ga kanthal instead. Right around .35 ohms I believe it was. Currently have a single coil 22ga, 7 wraps for .380.40 ohms. I'm just at 44 watts off the charger with my VTC5's. Dual coils just drink up the juice, I'm satisfied with my current coil. What nic are you all vaping at? I'm on 6mg, sometimes go up to 12 but I am back down to 6 after not vaping for a few days. Think I'll stay at 6 for a while. I've got an igo w 3 (and learned after that I don't care for more than two coils) on top of a K100. It's my banger, I've dropped it a bunch of times and it has scuffs and shit all over it.

    I'm liking Indigo Vapor's tobaccos. Captain Ron and Calypso are both really good. The Duke is good but sweeter than I'd hoped, and Santa Sauce isn't as good as I'd hoped but not bad.

    I'm partial to fruity and lighter flavors. Nearly all of the dessert lines are way too much for me. I can get down with the tobaccos occasionally but they're not my all-day vape. I don't care much for some of the lighter tobaccos, very few RY4's hit the mark for me. Currently have some of Mitzu's Forever Young, nice green mango, and Time Bomb's TNT Ice, peachy berry menthol. I'm really selective of what I vape for some reason. I tried 9 new juices last time I went to the shop and only kind of liked one. They have nearly 200 different flavors and I think I only really seriously enjoy 10 or 15 of them. Vapor Chef I've also enjoyed though that's mostly online.

    I wish I had a vape store in town… Got to stop by one in a city 2 hours away several weeks ago; they had something like 50 flavors available for tasting and that blew my mind. I'm hoping to be moving to bigger and better places here soon. I'll still be stuck in an unfortunate corner of the country in terms of the laws, but at least I'll have access to a brick & mortar… :tup:

    :wave: hey Quetz.

    I am currently vaping 6mg also. I find that vaping 12mg at 30+ watts puts too much hair on my chest. A couple months of that and I would start to look like brothers Tweek and Dorkus :D

    I also usually vape fruity, beverage, or a bit sweeter flavors unless it's like whiskey night or something. I usually drip Apollo E-cigs juice but they are close by to me and I am cool with the staff. They're juices are kinda cheap and I like a decent amount of their flavors but there is definitely better bargains to be found online. They are just close and convinenient and I can get some honest opinions on juice/hardware along with being able to sample flavors. Their kiwi watermelon, watermelon, and razzle are probably my favorite juices there. I have been curious about the Yaeliq vendor online gets great reviews, the prices are really cheap and all quality ingredients from what I hear.

    :mental: <--- can't get rid of this thing lol


    I normally vape RW vapors fluids from their respective website even though their only about an hour away. They have nic strengths all the way up to 40 mg/ml (holy shit!) And make their own juices, even though they don't display that online, you can request 26, 30, 34,36,38 and 40, I'm pretty sure that's accurate but don't hold me exact, I normally just get 24. On top of that all of their flavors can be what they call enhanced and sweetened, two different options that can be selected to greatly increase flavor production, which I love and always select both.

    I'm running a smok Galileo with vtc5's and a legit aqua RTA. Of course with kanthal and RxW. I run dual coils with a total resistance of .80 and am very pleased with performance. Should I mention thanks to RxW I have been using the same coils and wick for three months straight and still going strong with clean flavor. Pics to come soon, when I have time... Lol

    I wonder if someone will ever come up with a realistic-tasting cannabis-flavored juice… That hasn't happened yet, right?

    I have tried a few cannabis flavored e-liquids, I was very disappointed. It makes me wonder if anyone makes good ganja flavor.

    Other than mother nature - nothing tastes more ganjalike than ganja. Vapers who don't find tobacco flavored juice satisfying try out PG/VG extracts of tobacco. I think we ganjafiends would be better off making our own ganja-tasting juice from real ganja. Google Natural Extract Tobacco. These hobbyists have a great method down pat with tobacco, that I believe will work just as well with cannabis.

    I think that anyone who water-cures their bud should consider making ganja-tasting ejuice as a byproduct.

    My current juice build is the dual coil closest to the drip tonic bottle. That guava lava flavor is bomb IMO. Drip tonic is 100% vg and normally 3mg nic but they have different levels including nic free. The other is my oil coil, dual flat ribbon coils on 1 wick hits hard and fast. giggity :brow:

    @215z Using cotton for juice and ekowool for oil gonna get some ready wick when I run out.

    Doing a little reading on the marijuana e juices, and no one seems to swear by it, any of them seem to be very mild flavored, if at all, so we'll just have to wait I guess for someone to develop a legitimate marijuana flavored fluid

    Last time I was in the shop a guy said his friend had some juice called "Kush" that tasted just like weed. Said they tried looking for it again but never found it. I tried googling it but found nothing directly, and I don't feel like dropping money on juice I haven't tried yet (knowing I probably won't like it if it's not just like weed)... If we're discussing making our own, yeah I think it could be done. Would need flushed meds, then do a water cure or steam it or something to release the terpenes, then gotta capture them somehow (in water or inside some glass?) and mix with PG/VG. As long as they're not destroyed they should still keep the flavor of the specific strain to a point. Just random thoughts.

    I think the problem lies in the illegality of the flower itself, the plant for that matter in whole. So if one were to take those steps assuming it worked and bring it to commercial production and distribution, one would probably face serious heat from the dea :uhoh:. So probably won't happen anytime soon, but would be an interesting test with some ABR... Already been ran lol

    I'm fairly certain the terpenes are legal. At least a few of them are available for purchase via internet. I'd rather steam the bud myself for terps but yeah you'd have to make sure there's no cannabinoids in it to ship it around.

    Also just threw a parallel coil together and after a bit of wizardry mounted it finally. Fuck a five post RDA ;)

    Hand twisted some 24ga since my dad has the power drill. 3/4 wraps on an allen wrench, mounted on the screws to allow some space. Had to do with this... I really gotta get a 3 post dripper... Dripping some Larizzo. Fantastic, probably the closest to an ADV I can find.

    I'm dreaming of a juice that tastes like my all-time favorite snus: Gotlandssnus's Julesnus, only sold around Christmas time. Flavors of mulled wine, cinnamon, gingerbread, and tobacco. It is wonderful.

    As an aside, if you've never had mulled wine, it's a very nice spiced wine served warm in the winter. I know it as glühwein (glow wine) from Germany. Highly recommended on a cold winter's evening.

    I'm seeing some mulled wine e-juice results from a cursory googling, but I usually only make blind web purchases based on recommendations and reviews... And the gingerbread is such an integral part of the julesnus… Maybe I just need blaze the trail on this one.

    I don't know what got me thinking about that snus. Please excuse the Christmas references in October…!
