    really? i figured someone knew forsure, i mean had the thing for 7 days or so, all i remember is that it was a VERY nice semi-gloss finish :) did not "feel" like paint at all!

    you know i wouldn't mind a carbon fiber cloud sleeve. :science:

    :ninja: <- me looking for the postman right now

    I remember a page or so talking about someone getting some alcohol on the outside and some of the black came off.

    Carbon fiber is an interesting thought. I have a roll of that stuff, though I like the wrist band idea so you can remove it easily with out leaving sticky behind.

    I was one of those that suggested it was an anodized finish. But then when rubbed with a solvent, it appeared to be more like a fired powdered coating. Actually, it could be either. Some anodize finishes can be removed by strong cleaning agents such as Greased Lightning, some require a more caustic agent. In any event, the finish on the Cloud can be blemished so IMO extra caution is advisable.

    I sanded mine down to bare aluminum. That paint was a bitch to get off however it's done.

    Ouch, that's bare knuckle work for sure. I think a solution bath might be an alternative.

    Did you refinish the aluminum with any kind of protective coating?

    Welp, I guess I gotta wait a bit longer. The business was closed so USPS left a notice at the door according to the tracking information.

    Oh well, I guess that was somewhat wishful thinking that they would accept it today.

    Would you guys/gals who own and use the Cloud daily say that vaping high quality flower through the Cloud produces a potency that would appeal to someone who dabs high quality butane extract on a nail regularly? I need to medicate to a level most people would consider retarded and my dysfunctional liver does not process edibles correctly so I literally start my day with 6 dabs on the nail. The only reason I had moved away from flowers in the first place was because I could not consume enough active cannabinoids without lung irritation to feel properly medicated. BHO allowed me to reach those levels, but finding properly purged shatter requires making it yourself or knowing the source almost. I enjoy the flavor of high quality flowers just as much as high quality oils and IF they can get the job done (perhaps with an added glob mixed in as others have suggested) I would prefer that route.

    I have promised myself (after being disappointed with several volcanoes, and portables) that my next vape will be capable of delivering the potency I require. I have a really high tolerance. I don't want another vapor toy to sit on my desk while I reach for my torch and nail rig. Going from a Bic to a Hakko was HUGE. If going from a nail to a Cloud is similarly huge, I am in.

    You have hit on the exact reason I love the Cloud so much. I care not for the 710, I'm a flower guy, with serious pain management requirements. The Cloud offers concentrate level relief with flowers imho, its no toy, and I seriously doubt it will end up being anything but used daily :)

    I'd say it can be comparable to dabbing. Especially when vaping simple concentrates like kief/bubble in the cloud.

    The only reason I dab at home anymore is if time is an issue and the cloud is off.

    i got the cloud becuase i heard you could use it for shatter,keef and so on and it does so as good as your normal method, nail or plate. i have been happy with all the methods, form placing bud in the main chamber at 40/50% and then covering with keef or shatter/wax, i have done it with nothing in the main elb and used the 2 cap method with somewax.shatter alone, also with a little keef and then shatter/wax on top, even water hash works well each method. i have also used qtip cotton as a oil catcher and that worked as well. all to full effect without needing to use a nail or titanium plate, the taste is better as well, when using shatter.wax.wterhash i usualy turn it to 2pm or 3pm for huge thick bursting clouds

    Man I'm still loving the hell outta my vape setup... Other than the occasional fattie, I vape exclusively now. Can't handle the taste of combustion anymore other than when rolled up. The high is so much cleaner, less lethargic, and longer lasting than loading up a traditional bowl.
    I can't tell you which is better - a DG 13'' convertible or SG Mini King when paired with the VXC. I love going back and forth between them throughout the day.

    I'm a daily concentrate smoker and the cloud isn't gunna be comparable to a nice dab...nothing is. That said it still is the most efficient and best working vaporizer I've used and still gets you ripped but you will be smoking a lot more flowers than those 6 dabs... it'll definitely be a nice buddy for your dabs and is a nice chill-out high compared to how racy taking a bunch of big dabs can be, but don't expect it to somehow rival the experience or level of medication, it's still a vaporizer and dabs are still super concentrated thc with little to no plant matter.

    It really depends on how much you dab. I was able to cut a 2 gram a week earl habbit, but I was almost strictly using a TV LV dart. I think .05g dabs can be replaced by the cloud, but if a guy is used to .1g dabs, it may get hard to recreate.
    My first dabs in months came after my cloud started being bi-polar a week ago.

    Agreed, but I was basing my answer off his "I wake up with 6 dabs" thing... If I did that (and I consider myself a HEAVY concentrate user) i'd be done for the day and never get anything done.

    You'd need like 12-15 elbs to equal 6 dabs out of bed IMO haha. the cloud is amazing but it's not magic, Dabs have anywhere from 50-90% thc (higher if made well) and flowers at max has 25-30%.

    The thing about the cloud over most vaporizers is its ease of use and efficiency can get you rolling through ELBs faster than you could have ever hit another vape, so you can get higher quicker. but a nice big dab...there's absolutely nothing like it.

    Sadly got myself a upper respiratory infection, and a fairly severe viral one at that. Coughing or sneezing throws jolting pain throughout my body. Have been mixing edibles with extremely low temp cloud sessions. Without the VXC, I Doubt I would be comfortable vaping at all. Anything with less filtration, more restriction, or need for a higher temp to extract would certainly have been much worse to use, and would have caused more lung irritation.

    keep your heads in the clouds y'all

    I wish I was in the Clouds. Being off this week is a real bummer. I'm sorry, but my Pax and my EQ just don't compare (forget the WISPR LOL :-) ).

    I'm praying that I'll have my Cloud by New Years. That would be wondertastic. :-).

    Have a great rest of the weekend all.

    A few pages back, someone said they got their Cloud to heat up faster by plugging the joint with teflon. I'm a little wary of using teflon since it expands with heat and might put pressure on the glass. I was thinking maybe we could achieve the same effect with this. With something like this, you could just pop it on whenever you heat up your unit, and you could even use it to plug the joint when you want to clean your bamboo.

    Assuming the 6 dabs he starts with aren't low/medium quality but homemade dank stuff, that argument could certainly be valid :buzz:

    I do feel like, normally, less potent concentrates like kief won't hit me like oil/wax. However, if I load a serious amount of kief/bubble in the ELB and cache it in one breath, it certainly feels like dab effects to me.
    The kief may be 50% the potency of the oil by gram, but just gotta use a little more than the oil :)
