    FIREFLY 2. I used it less than 10 times and gave up on vaping for a couple years until I decided to give the Mighty a whirl. I couldn't figure out how to work the FF2 consistently. I got a couple of good hits off it but most of my tries not so much. I went back to combusting after FF2. It just didn't do it for me. It still sits here untouched, nice paper weight. After I went Mighty I didn't go back.

    I read of vaping but no one in my sphere vaped. I bought a Hot Box. A Hot Box is a ceramic cube that contains a heating element. You load a whip and hold it against the element. When I finally learned how to use it, it changed my life. While I no longer smoked cigarettes, I always had a smoker's cough: so much so it worried my un-cool friends and family. I found that by vaping, I no longer had a smoker's cough, even though I cough at times with vaping.

    My first experience vaping was probably using a quartz wand to vaporize bubble hash. My buddies used to use them to smoke, but I quickly realized I could utilize the radiant heat for a much smoother experience. That wasn't long after I started smoking.

    I started with a little glass pipe from dropper I took of the plastic air sack and filled the glass stem with a herb, I was originally smoking from it and then once I tried to heat it from beneath it, and it released this flavor, I was like omg! wtf is this ! I wish It could be easier to get this taste! :D surely I evolved too:) but this is my humble begining :)

    I think it might have been one of those Vapor Brothers plugins that look like automatic pencil sharpeners. I was not fucking impressed lol. I was going from blunts and bongs to that and was like "uhh, I guess that works but fuck this shit."

    Volcano changed everything. First time I tried one was like "holy shit vaping is the real fucking deal." If it wasn't for that, I don't know if I ever would have made the switch. Thank you to Storz & Bickel and a big ol' fuck off to Vapor Brothers, assuming that's who made that piece of shit I used the first time I vaped.

    First time was a lightbulb vape I bought in A'dam in 2001.
    But that wasn't vaping, that was heating tiny pieces of (cut) traditional hash to (almost) combustion in a lightbulb.
    My first vape was a MFLB which I have bought specifically before a trip to the Nederlands to start vaping.

    Bag of Volcano vapour at a bar in Amsterdam in 2007 or 8. This was later at night so I was already at maximum elevation and couldn’t perceive getting higher! The volcano at coffee shops was still a novelty then, I guess I just wanted to try it because it happened to be there and was I too.

    Took a long time for me to look into vaporization seriously and stumble through the door here.

    In a 100% glass airpath tower!
    Didn't know hotknives were vaporising! If so, scratch the Volcano as first experience and put me down for 1993 :ko:.
    As we found out, it only worked for Moroccan type of hash, we tried putting Afghan at some point and it was very disappointing!
