    Hey errybody! I'm Katnip but "hey you" will also suffice. I'm a 27 year old Marylander, with the stereotypical obsession with Old Bay and Chesapeake blue crabs which are delicious and fun to eat to boot!

    I've never been a smoker of anything, but I will still always be thankful for me ex for introducing me to vaping, because the possibilities are endless and tasty. I just thought back to when I was gifted my VaporGenie, and I realized that I've had that vape for likely longer than five years. It has served me well in those years.

    Sad story: I was using it just far back enough that I can't remember when, months likely, no more than half a year. I was using it and the rock broke. I had never dropped or abused it and it just snapped. Not extremely surprised because it WAS five years old, if not older. I'm going to be getting a VapCap M in roughly two weeks after I fix up some life shit that's been bugging me. I really hope it does as well as my Genie did.

    I am one of those "not religious, but spiritual" types, with a lot of different spiritual influences. I'm not gonna turn this paragraph into the novel it could potentially be, but if you want to know, it wouldn't offend me if you ask.

    I'm also a GIANT nature freak. That's why I love vapes that don't require batteries SO MUCH. I can go to a park, walk waaaay on down the trail as I vape, and I don't have to do any button voodoo to hope and pray that my battery doesn't die on me while I'm out there. The sounds and smells of a large healthy forest are one of the most effective therapies for generally resetting myself and getting my head right for the future. Ain't no pressure or responsibility concerns in a forest. Plus, campfires are fun.

    I am a grocery cashier during my work shifts, and anytime else I am an artist on top of the aforementioned nature freak. I can't draw for shit, but give me something to make and I know almost any medium known to man.... except metal and glasswork, haven't done those yet. I get sidetracked easily and likely have three projects in progress at a time, usually more but I try to keep it down to three. I have to find my camera so I can share some of my work. I also write in a somewhat regular fashion, and even though I don't have any real things in the works yet some of the characters and situations I've come up with are definitely worth a place in possibly an eventual book.

    Did I miss something anybody wanted to know? Ask me! In the thread, any other threads, inbox, whatever! I always have an answer, even if the answer is "I don't know".

    Lol! @TeeJay1952, I am not left-handed. It would make writing and eating dinner with people super awkward. :lol:

    @Katnip

    im not a particularly literary person but you mentioned youre a Marylander..
    did you ever come across a novel -The Sot-Weed factor by John Barth
    i read it many years ago -- its hilarious

    from wiki
    A satirical epic set in the 1680s–90s in London and colonial Maryland, the novel tells of a fictionalized Ebenezer Cooke, who is given the title "Poet Laureate of Maryland" by Charles Calvert, 3rd Baron Baltimore and commissioned to write a Marylandiad to sing the praises of the colony. He undergoes adventures on his journey to and within Maryland while striving to preserve his virginity.


    i must be showing my age (50s) - i still havent quite got over the interwebs and being able to commmunicate with ppl ive never met from places ive only heard of ..or in this case read about
    lol

    @cloudsosmoke I haven't even heard of that book, much less read it. It sounds funny though.... Calvert County was named after Charles Calvert I think. I am definitely not a historian though, so don't quote me. lol. If you ever get a chance to visit, unless the laws change by then, make damn sure nobody smells your weed. One, some ass might do some heavy mooching off of you, two, you can still technically get arrested on a suspicion here. Also, if you do end up here for work or play, visit Calvert Cliffs. It's sorta pretty, in a Maryland way. lol. And EAT SOME CRABS XD

    Trust me, I feel you on the being able to communicate with pretty much anyone on the face of the planet. Though for me, as soon a someone wants to meet in real life I get all paranoid that they have "plans" for the visit that I wouldn't be aware of. My hypothetical "trust meter" fills up VERY slowly. It's a thing I have to still continue to learn to live with. Online is fine, though, somehow.

    Hey. I like weird invented symbols on the mashed up bodies of trees. I just don't have a lot of capacity left after work to actually sit down and concentrate on something. Sad, I know. Retail's bad for me brain. But I deal, cuz I need the money and that money is either going to a house eventually or to college and THEN a house. Or y'know, technical school, which is always a good plan B.

    Hi everyone! I've been lurking for a long time, ever since I got my med. card (for pretty bad PTSD and accompanying insomnia and muscle spasms and anxiety) and needed help choosing a vape. Ended up going with the hip vape as my first portable and got it through a recommended vendor here. It's a year old and I'm considering upgrading, so thought this was a good time to come back and take a look, and this time introduce myself.

    In addition to vaping, I'm interested in herbal remedies and plant based medicine, and writing and reading. And dogs, esp. the Japanese breeds (hence Shibaz as my user name. Had two, now down to one Shiba, and he's an old guy--and CBD oil helps him with arthritis. I also have two Akitas and a Kai Ken.

    I've learned a lot reading--not just about vapes, but about other medical issues (vaping with asthma for example--as I was recently diagnosed with asthma after a particularly bad bout with the flu this past winter).

    My 15 year old service dog, now takes 3 drops a day of Glycerin tinctire made lovingly and especially for him.
    http://vaporist.wordpress.com is a good place to look..... since photobucket changed policy to include "no further image hosting unless you pay $399 a year" the i mages are gone, but info remains.....
    and also look right here on FC.com to find posts from real patients using.... adjusting.... and discovering new ways to use "our medicine"!
