Vapes

Ive seen quite a few people with those handheld nicotine vapes. Do they make a similar toy for THC? Ive been rediscovering an old friend but smoking makes my throat unhappy. Any recommendations? How do they compare, costwise, to smoking? Is the cost per high comparable?

Gracias.

The Rev

I have a Puri5 Vape that I never use. For some reason I cough whenever I've used Vapes so I've given up on them. Anyway, look up the Puri5 online and if you're interested let me know. If you send me an address to mail it to, I'd be happy to do so. I tried giving it away here but my old hippie friends like their one hitters. Us old fuckers are stuck in our ways.

Hell yeah they do! I’ve been buying the distalites cartridges, you simply open the box, screw on tank/mouthpiece and you are vaping tasty thc. There’s also the messier wax pen options.

Yeah you can buy a "battery" that has the 5mm thread that has become the industry standard for as little as 15-20 bucks for the battery and 25-40 for a .5g cartridge (100-200 pulls)

They have the kind with pre-loaded cartridges, as well as refillable oil vapes and refillable herb vapes. I'd recommend getting one with multiple temperature settings, and using the low setting if your throat is sensitive to smoking.

I see them a lot out-and-about on bar patios and whatnot. The look and smell is discrete enough that business owners don't seem to mind, even though it's illegal here. The cartridge varieties are particularly discrete.

Some more to add.

If you go to a dispensary to get your cartridges. There will be the usual distinction between india, sativa, and hybrid. What you may want to look out for is that the really fruity named ones such as "strawberry sundae" may have added terpenes(the naturally occurring taste/scent compounds) that isn't a bad or good thing, just a preference. I prefer no to little terps so that I know that it is unadulterated concentrate, but a nice pull of something sweet is nice every so often.

Another heads up is take a rip, let it settle and then take another, instincts take over quick and I have ended many a night prematurely because I took 5-6 rips while chatting over a beer and found myself a bit on the bageled side.

Here is a pic of my rig,





The battery is from Kandy Pens, and came with attachments for oil(quartz coil(big rips), and a ceramic (smaller rips)), an empty cartridge for home batches/nicotine, and some other stuff.

Love my Vape pen but Holy Fuck it's concentrated. Took 4 hits of my Sativa insert and had to take a knee. It was called trainwreck and made me feel 15 again.

Bud. But it's not a pen type. It's a little rectangular box. Around 4X2 inches.

Let me know if you're interested Rev. It was hard writing Rev without the "The" in front of it.

I’m leaning towards the distillate vapes. Any brand or model recommendations? I looked at Kandy Pens and the Rubi looks reasonably priced to try it out. Don’t want to invest serious money until I know it’s something I like

Brass Knuckles. Compact, pretty tough.

It's really, really easy to smoke yourself retarded with these things...

How harsh is the smoke from these things? Smoking 'regular' herb gives me a cough that lasts weeks, actually, if I smoke, I cough till weeks after quitting. Why I've been 'eating'.

Most pens have variable temp controls so you can get big "puffs" of vapor or more moderate "wisps" that won't irritate the throat as much. The vapor doesn't seem to irritate in the same way "smoke" does.

I got a Kandypens Rubi, and it looks pretty good. Got great reviews. Thing is, the cartridge that holds the liquid has a pretty small fill hole. Do I need to get a special eye dropper to fill it? Might be a lame question. I have zero knowledge of vaping matters.

Dude, thanks so much for the offer! Im just leaning more towards the distillates because it means fewer hits. Bud vapes, based on my experience, require more pulls than even smoking does, and I just want to get high and be done with it. Getting tired of working the utensil in my old age, I suppose. That said, it was really cool of you to offer. Youre a great friend!

The fitting is "industry standard", just head on down to your local shop and buy a full one.

Edit: my bad, I just looked up that thing.

Should have bought a battery with the standard 510 fitting. Carts are disposable/recyclable and come in many, many different strains and flavors and no filling necessary...
