    I make bubble hash, and have no problems running it through vapes :)

    Vaped traditional lebenese brick hash in the Vapman on the weekend, first hash experience and it was amazing.

    Oh man, that spicey almost creamy flavour of cured middle eastern hash with the mild woody flavor of the VapMan :ko:

    All the pens you see are made for concentrates/wax/oil that completely dissolve; this is the meaning of full melt. These vape pens are not for hash, they are for concentrates. There is no such a unit specifically made for old school hash.

    Hash and even concentrates can be used in a large amount of herbal leaf vapes because they will not impair the use of the device if used properly.

    But you can not use herbs or hash in vape pens. They have been made specifically for oils. They work on the principle that the concentrate 100% evaporates; so the pen is always clean. Using herbs or hash would likely just combust and also clog the vape.

    I use a basic Chinese hotplate domevape for my traditional hash, sitting on an ss screen to try to combat any combustion.

    Or I cut a thin slither and sandwich it into a basket of herb in the eq.

    Hello, I have been researching vaping hash for a few weeks now - mostly trying to get answers on my national forum but I just realised that FC must be the #1 place to find other people who enjoys vaping hash.

    Either way, I currently have a Crafty, Plenty and an Atmos Boss in my posession - while I did get these liquid pads with the storz n bickel products - I am feeling uneasy about using regular moroccan hash in them because I'm afraid the oil will drip into the vape & somehow destroy it.

    Are my worries based on anything really? On a site note I have about 2 liters of ABV right now that I could make sandwiches with - that's atleast what I think people do when smoking in the Crafty/Mighty/Volcano etc?

    What are your tips for smoking hash with any of these vapes?

    Iqouted you sativasam because you seem very knowledgable in this matter, also you said earlier that the mighty works great to vape hash in, and I'd really like to know more about you do it if possible!

    While I did ask these questions regarding my own vapes right now, I have also been looking into purhasing a vape specifically for hash-vaping - but is this necessary considering my aresenal right now? I had real itchy fingers to buy a volcano because a lot of people say it's good for hash vaping - but when I read that I had a feeling perhaps the Plenty or Crafty could work just as well...

    The unfortunate reason that I need to resort to hash-vaping is mostly because my weed stash is running out and I won't be able to harvest for a few months at least, and the only local supply is hash.

    Thanks, wt7

    I haven't used the Atmos Boss, or the Plenty. I would imagine the plenty works well for hash but I wouldn't know details.

    I know the crafty is similar to the Mighty. I prefer hash in my Mighty rather than my Volcano.

    I think what you have is fine. You have a top end portable, and a top end desktop vape; and an extra. What more do you need? It doesn't get much better. Every vape works different. And every type of hash or weed has different properties that effect the way in which it performs in the vape at hand. The combination of your vape and your product will always bring new variables. So wanting more vapes is understandable but not essential in your situation. I have a Volcano, Mighty and MFLB and I just received my Lotus with a high temp cap. I thought this might be a nice vape for hash from what I had seen and heard. (Not that I needed it I was just being greedy!!!) I'd love to be able to give you my review of it using hash but alas it was damaged in the post so I must return it before getting to know it closely. I definitely don't need a new vape for a while.

    I used to smoke 80% hash - 20% weed. When I got into vaping this switched around and now it's 80% weed and only 20% hash. This is partly down to the fact that hash is more bothersome to clean up after and partly that weed IMO creates nicer vapour. To be honest I have been making some kick ass brownies with my hash. Seems more fulfilling than vaping it. I love the taste. If you like the taste of vaping hash you will love the taste of eating it! People get scared of hash brownies but my technique is to make them very weak. I buy a ready made brownie mix from the shop and put 0.5 of hash in to the mix. As eating hash is so potent, even one or two will touch me enough that i feel lightly mellow. While at the same time I could eat the hole batch and it would be nothing I couldn't handle.

    The Mighty is not just convection but also conduction, I think it gives a fuller hit than the Volc when using hash. My hash is the super sticky kind and it will never melt through the liquid pad. It would have to be like olive oil to do that! As long as what you have is hash it won't go through the pad don't worry. You just want to protect the upper screen in the cooling unit from clogging, so as you don't have to clean/change it every single time you vape a bowl.

    I personally make a little pancake of hash and put it on the liquid pad. No need to crumble it IMO. Then I put 2 spare cooling unit gauzes on top of the hash (sometimes 1 works but with large hash pancakes it can still make its way through) so it doesn't gunk up the 'real' cooling unit gauze. Then I turn the Mighty up to 190c, then 200c, maybe even 210c. You can stop when the vapour stops. But I personally stop when I get a certain taste that I don't like. When the Mighty has cooled I remove the liquid pad and gauzes which are stuck together. I have a small toothpick pot (convenient for carrying) in which I keep 1 small + 1 large needle, 2 pads and 2 gauzes. I chuck the dirty pad in the pot. I have 2 pads so that I can keep things on rotation. I use the big needle to scratch the crusty hash off the liquid pad. I use the small needle to poke holes through the clogged up gauze (is quicker than using ISO and convenient when on the move). This may sound like a ball ache but it honestly only takes a minute or two. I find the Mighty efficient for hash. I find the Volc less efficient personally. - The Volcano I would crumble the hash. My sticky hash makes a mess in my Volc and there really isn't much I can do about that apart from use spare fine mesh screens on rotation, which have to be cleaned with iso frequently.

    EDIT: These are my personal experiences but read though this thread and you will hear loads of others. @NorVape likes to use cotton instead of screens. (I want to try this in my Volc). People also say that the Vapman is good for hash. There will be more inside the FC forums for sure. Personally I don't think you need to do any big spending in a hurry, just enjoy the hash you have!

    I'm getting some hash for the first time in years. Anyone want to give an opinion on which of my vapes might work better.
    Aromed, herbalaire, or Vapman.
    thanks

    My Volcano was awesome at vaping hash.

    Tried it first in Amsterdam in the coffee shops there.

    Hash gives such a strong earthy taste that stays on the tongue for a long time.
    Man I forgot about good hashish.

    Mrs H has a vapman but I have not tried hash in it.

    My mate smokes/vapes hash exclusively and I will get some of his King Hassan or Caramela Cream to vape, I bet it will be amazing in the Vapman.

    Thanks fellas.

    I think the conduction from the Vapman could help.

    I've got some very soft hash I made last year from a lovely white Bhutanese plant; I'm going to go spend some time with it now :)

    Revisiting this topic once more - I wanted to tell u guys about my experience with a much cheaper alternative (ceramic donut wax atty) and welcome your feedback.

    I have had to junk most of the "wax" pens I got in the past. I was thinking they may work for traditional hash. Well, they do - through combustion! :mad: The only exception to this has been my ceramic donut atomizer - I am using it with a normal ecig 510 battery and the coil provides just enough conducted heat to vape (not combust) traditional hash (in my case, Indian charas).

    [​IMG]

    I find that if I allow enough time between button presses and draws, I am able to vape my hash through this atty without combustion. The flavor is very nice and comparable to a dab of the same material/its rosin.

    Continuous presses and deeper draws, however, do get the hash to combust, especially if the load is near its end. The atty does not have a cover/screen, so deep draws can throw up some ABV into my mouth :argh:

    So what do you guys think of this method? I find it to be an acceptable, cheaper alternative to some of the better portable/flame vapes out there, although I am still hoping to get a Vapman and Solo/Air. :rockon:

    Interesting!

    How do you clean between sessions?

    @NorVape I use a wooden toothpick to scrape around the donut and just blow out the remains. A couple of dry burns help too, but sometimes the reclaim and plant matter just keep on smoking esp. if I've missed scraping it out.

    As I said, not the cleanest portable method-but acceptable for me at the moment, till I hopefully get a Vapman/Arizer portable!

    I haven't had any hash for years. All that was available was Soapbar and there is no way I would put any of that in my lungs again. When you hear from a more than reliable source that 90% of the Soap which arrives in the UK contains fecal matter it puts a whole new spin on the old phrase 'Lets smoke some shit'.
    I've forgotten what a good quality hash smells, tastes and feels like. So the only thing for it is to make some. If I get time I will try and get some proper solid hash together, rather than a thick concentrate, and report back on how I get on with my Vapcap and hash.

    The Persei herc74x cart has a mesh wick that seems to work very well.

    Same thing here. The few times I can purchase some high quality stuff (once a year maybe) I prefer to hot press it to remove all the plant material and then vape it mixed with weed.

    I wonder why Europe and Scandinavia is flooded with good hash, while the British Isles are full of soap bar.

    @NorVape I would think it's due to the North Sea and English Channel. It's not worth losing something good so send the shit here and if it gets seized so what. Make some more and try again.
