I gave a wrong impression, I havent used the vapcaps enough to get any significant reclaim yet. I havent even looked at the inside of the omni's condenser.I haven't experienced excessive build up at all, even before I started using a hemp filter. I found my buildup to be quite a bit less than that produced by both my Vapman and Lotus. I wonder what is causing the difference between your excessive buildup and my minimal buildup?
I tend to heat my cap less than what I've seen others describe. My ABV is uniformly a light to medium toast color; lighter than the pics you've posted. I also microdose every few hours throughout the day and evening. So, tiny nugs are vaped rather than full bowls. I guess another variance would be the characteristics of the strain we are vaping?
Anyone have some theories or insight to offer?
But when I did try my mum's OG, i only had a few bowls and already there was visible build up inside the condenser.
Im just going by all the pictures I have seen from others' devices and many accojnts of reclaim build up rates earlier in this forum.
It seems to build up much fstr than the herborizer, where I used it for ages before anything even became visible.
I could be wrong that it is a problem anyway I really dont know, I dont have experience with similar style vaporizers and I always take all others' comments and view on board.
Im certainly going to try the hemp fiber gauze, I wondered how you were using it.
Yes Im sure nugg size etc plays a part, and strain etc. Generally, the stuff you members in the US have access to (and UKers without allergies to all fertilisers), is miles above our outdoor uk autoflowers, with leafy buds due to lack of sun.
But for what it is it is very good actually, just not the crystal white stinky deliciousness many of you are privvy too (no jealousy, I'm really glad for you all honest!)
I really believe that as @lookhigh suggested, water curing may be the answer for me, to reduce irritation by removing harsh compounds and useless plant material, requiring less actual material afterwards.
And if it can enable me to tolerate the plants with fertilisers, then I have a mountain of nice stuff from those others Im allergic to at the moment.
I really appreciate your advice and suggestions Squiby, you are only ever helpful! Hard to know what to do about allergies though isnt it?
