Trust me oil is bad shit...stick with the flower if your tolerance is high take a few days break
Can’t break. Medicinal user here.
I’ve used concentrates before. Had some gluechee hash pressed rosin. Shit was awesome.
I’m gonna get some papaya cake live rosin and Solventless sugar.
Thanks you just saved me some cash.
I think what others are saying about concentrates is that they can become counterproductive when the tolerance builds up and flower will not build up tolerance as fast. As another option maybe look into CBD flowers as an alternative to THC so you can use less THC since you cannot take a break due to your condition.
i think there is responsible concentrate use....you can measure out each dosage....its only when u start dabbing all the time when tolerance builds up
Yeah that’s what I hope to achieve. A fine balance.
Looks very tight for a inverted Evo, as in probably wont work with an Evo inverted.
I've got a similar rig and there is not enough clearance to do it without a drop down.
T-break work in a recreational sensation?
T-break is dangerous for MEDICAL need’s?
Don’t take advise for the INTERNET?
For me like you I’m more MEDICATED on SUNDAY than other’s?
GDP is the ROSIN I have in my POD and QUARTS EVO NAIL.
I have some seed’s of PAPAYA I need to plant next spring.
The COLAS are CIVILIZED
Hahaha you are the best bro. Yeah, breaks for recreational people, cool. But for medical people like myself, I can’t sit in pain for 3 days waiting to lose tolerance.
I think I have a pretty good strategy and now that I’m gonna use the Evo as my main rig (I have like 10 nails lol), I’m pretty set.
Glad it can handle .1 well! However, I am using a tenth of that currently (~.01 or 10m mg). Has anyone tried that little before? Will probably end up getting the EV0 either way but if .01 is fine for me I don't want to have to use ten times that amount to have a decent session.
The EVO will never reach the potential that a quartz banger and carb cap can reach.
The EVO just flat out can't produce the tasty low temp hits of a banger and still vaporize it efficiently. You can vaporize concentrates in the EVO without issue, it's just not in the same league imo.
I think the difference comes down to the carb cap.
And don't let people scare you calling concentrates like "crack". Sure, your tolerance can shoot up if you keep going for dab after dab. But the same thing happens if you keep loading flower bowls!
I haven't tried using 0.01 in mine (but I will later today and let you know). But I have the feeling that it won't be enough. The baskets are almost an inch tall, so I think even if you were to cover just the bottom portion (I also don't think 0.01 would actually fully cover the bottom), When you draw the air upwards, it will all just fly around in the basket and not get the chance to be sufficiently heated up.
However if you were to use another herb as filling in the basket, then that may help. A little movement in the basket is fine, but I think with 0.01 you will just be inhaling air basically.
I was also like you, I was using 0.01 for quite a while with my underdog, and then when I started using the evo, I had to use 0.1 and it got me ripped lol. it was great, but also obviously tolerance will build with continued usage at a higher dose. But that doesn't mean you gotta use it all the time, I was fine using 0.01 all week, then doing 0.1-0.2 for a day or two (but then you gotta think, how much is it worth to spend if you only gonna use it occasionally)
either way, i'll let you know later how 0.01 goes in my evo
I need to weigh my load’s as well?
Full basket Not tamped when CANNABIS is plentiful?
1/2 basket when I get low on CANNABIS.
Now I have many vaporizer’s to be clear!
It seem’s like my consumption is down when the EVO is in rotation?
You didn’t ask my level on the dial?
Let me tell you?
1:30 this cure!
As long as the bottom of the ELB is covered with herb, and that ain't much, the Evo work just fine....
I’ve been using my evo for about 10months, no problems at all.
Last night I looked over at it and thought “that’s strange I’ve never seen it glow that colour of orange before” took me a second to realise it was the orange colour of fire, and It was basically heated to far it was glowing red orange (colour of lava hot) I unplugged it and ran it outside.
It still glowed for a long time, then the glass has cracked Inside. I got video and I think the store I bought it will replace... not sure I want the same unit again after this, still think it was a good vape though.
My temp dial was at about 2oclock when this happened.
Very strange. I’ve owned a cloud for years 7 this year to be exact, and the EVO for 5 years almost now... and never happened. I’d chalk it up to a fluke. Still the best flower vaporizer in my opinion.
Yes I did love mine, found I liked my mighty better but would go back to the evo to mix it up, great desktop. The last few times I used it though it just wasn’t producing like it used to, thinking now that this big problem happened it may have been acting up.
I had the same thing happen to me a few years ago too. Came back into room, it was smokey, EVO was glowing red, friend said “is it supposed to be glowing?”.
The bamboo was melted and about to start dripping. I was pissed.
VapeXhale provided return shipping label and gave me a new unit, which performed way better than my first one that melted. The one that melted did not perform well at all. I no longer trust any plug in vape unattended. Could have been fatal no doubt.
How long was it on? Something went wrong for sure and thankfully you saw it before things got potentially worse. I wouldn't doubt similar heater failures can be a risk across all types evapes. Be careful no matter what evape. Thx for reporting and hopefully people are vigilant. Imagine all those that leave their desktop vapes on for a day plus. The unit should be replaced no questions, and hopefully VapeXhale can get their hands on it to diagnose the issue.
I think it was on for about a hour or two power cycles. We had a session. Went downstairs for pizza. Came back up shit was melting. I had it plugged directly into wall no WiFi plug controller or anything like some people do. VapeXhale asked me if I used one of those
@Been Vapin, @STOKED, so the auto shut off was still working and you power cycled it back up once? If so then not even the power cycle was indicative of an issue...
I believe this was a common problem with the first generation European (i.e., 240 volts) units. Try to get the store to replace it with one of the newer units if you can. Maybe reach out to support at vxl too?
Thanks everyone, I’m heading into the store, sad to say but it seems they have no replacement stock so I will be waiting :/
I only had my unit on for half an hour/hour maybe.. or so, the power shut off had kicked In once, I turned it off for a minute and then returned it on again prob 20mims later I noticed the glow.
I have left my evo before FORGETTING and it had used the power save function to turn off the heater I guess (flashing led) this didn’t happen last night.
I never think I’ll leave it on without being in the room ever again.
I have no doubt this would have started a fire if not seen.
the serial no was - EVO72161N
Maybe a bad batch? maybe similar serial n's should keep a good eye on theirs.
Yes. Auto shut off was working. Did one power cycle. When hitting the melted unit the lights would flash from green to red while taking a draw. I have read of other having this issue as well.
My replacement unit has been flawless about to clean everything up and fire it up. The EVO is very hard to beat for flavor
Mine was from a Massdrip purchase like 2-3 years ago maybe longer
Forgot how good a GOOD evo is.
So wreckd now (took five minutes to type that)
Store had a secret stash of units and swapped it straight over.
