    Until getting my Cloud, I was never that into glass. I always just vaped with bags and whips. So needless to say, my glass knowledge is lacking. So those more experienced than me...

    Why do people say some pieces are better for flowers while others are better for concentrates? We're vaping the same active compounds, so I don't understand the difference. Are people talking about the high certain pieces will give? Or are they talking about flavor and other (IMO less important) aspects? I just want to get medicated. I have a Hydratube if I want to savor the flavor. But I just bought an SG King Stemline since they were in stock and I want A LOT more volume than the HT provides. I understand that more diffusion = less flavor. But, I guess what my question really boils down to is: Will vaping an ELB filled with concentrate out of my stemline be noticeably weaker than hitting it out of another piece or something?

    No, the water pipe allows more smoke to be inhaled smoothly at once. This is what people desire, a bong hit as compared to smoking but instead with vapor. Some people also think vapor is very harsh

    Ermmm...

    Maybe it's not the container which matters the most: it's what's inside and how it's getting processed exactly. I'm in favour of fog conditioning against systematic water washing anyway, though PVC style so far...

    I've always heard its due to the fact concentrates condense much more, as a result doing a large dab on a large piece will lose much more of it on the glass surface, so it is in that sense wasteful. I also hear that you get less flavour from concentrates in bigger pieces. I wouldn't know having only dabbed in small rigs.
