I am not sure I have seen this discussed in detail with many people adding in.....so let me start. I have a very hard time no going through water. There has only been a few times where I could take it for short periods, and that was with the MV1. But I am sensitive and had and issue with the silicone taste. When I try my air, argo, vapcap....and 1 single time my Elev8r....the vapor is too harsh/hot and I can not really tastes the true flavors of the flower. I started my partaking carrier many moons ago with a 2 foot graphics binger and 100% real "out of the can" Maui Waui ! (any of you other old timers remember the cans). So using water is natural to me and a given. So when I started vaping because my throat and lungs were in bad shape from restarting flowers after a decade off...vaping was a savior for me. With water.....I can taste perfectly the spectrum of terps....without....nothing...just full on harshness in taste. How many others are like me?
