What it do FC, been lurkin here for awhile. But you all know your stuff and its about damn time I took advantage of that haha. I'm trying to get healthy this year, and one of those things will involve eliminating smoking. I'm an MMJ patient so I definitely NEED to get my medicine in my system somehow. Before this year I've used only two vapes, the Volcano and Da Buddha. The Volcano was AWESOME, but I live by myself and I don't have the money to acquire one at this time. Da Buddha was very nice, and I still get to use my friend's from time to time. However I find that after an initial session it doesn't necessarily get me as medicated as I'd like in the following sessions. This could just be my higher tolerance, medicating too much in one day, etc. But overall, I like it. Now for christmas a good friend of mine got me the T-Vape, since that person knew I'd like to medicate away from my home. After some use I've determined my particular unit runs hot, and its way too harsh for me, even at the lowest setting (it almost combusts my medicine). So needless to say I'm very skeptical about portable units now. I spend a lot of money on medicine each month already, so I'm trying to acquire a vape that will help my budget by being a solid investment that I can use for years to come. My funds cap off for this new device around $300. I don't have the connections or money to purchase and try new vaporizers like some people on here, so this purchase needs to be a surefire hit. After some extensive research I believe I can obtain the right tool for me for this price or lower. In my initial research I've determined that I might prefer ceramic heating element style vapes (like the 7th floor products) since they seem the best maintenance-wise. More electronics to me means more potential problems, but I've only used 3 vapes before so I could be wrong. I currently don't have a preference between plug-in and portable units, I just want the one that will treat me well for years. I don't like using water pipes in conjunction with vapes (too cumbersome for my personal preference). I would prefer something that is easy to clean as well, so something like the pax might not be good for me. Sorry for ranting but I'd thought I'd give out as much info as I could. Thanks again FC you guys are awesome and I appreciate all input I receive.
