School me on THC vape.

edited July 11 in Help / Advice Forum
So I've been using edibles for a while. Problem is, I don't like having to set aside a few hours of the day for the magic to happen. I want to get the ball rolling a lot more quickly.

So I'm thinking about getting a THC vape and I'm overwhelmed. I have not a clue on what to get or where to start. So, does anyone have any advice regarding this?

    The first thing you'll want to figure out is if you want one that vapes flower or concentrate (could be oil, wax, product-specific cartridges... lots of things). I prefer flower because I have a better selection of strains and I like the residual taste of flower, but the concentrate ones tend to be less messy and hit harder (more like a dab).

    From there, a price range. The cheapest vape pens will probably run around $50, and very reasonably nice ones can be had for $100. Up to $300 and the sky's mostly the limit.

    I have less in the way of specific product recommendations but I'd recommend taking a peek at these. I don't have much in the way of recommendations for concentrate vapes, simply because I haven't explored them much.

    Magic flight launch box ($119, dry herb only... this thing is charmingly low tech and real fun to use)
    Pax 3 ($250, can do herb OR concentrates. This is more like if the iPod was designed to get you high instead of play music)

    Bluetooth?!

    Okay, I think I'm about to go down a rabbit hole.

    Thanks for the recommendations, though. I'll be sure to look at those later.

    Are you a cop? You have to tell me if you are. It's like...entrapment, man.

    That said, I'm going to assume you are 18 and live in a legal weed state for the purposes of this post. =P

    That that said, my, uh, friend really loves the Indigo Pro. It's cheap, has almost no moving parts and a long battery life. The concentrate cartridges aren't cheap - they're more of the middle to upper middle class of weed, but they are wildly effective, clean, and super discreet.

    The Pax is rather on the ridiculous end of these kinda things; they have a dramatically cheaper model that only works with cartridges specifically made for the device (think keurig pods) if you want to just dip your toes in.

    Okay, that cheap model might be exactly what I'm looking for to see how it's like. Thanks! That $250 model kind of scared me for a bit.

    If your issue is with timing these beboe pastilles take about 5-10 minutes to kick in and are a great little buzz - https://www.beboe.com/product/inspired-pastilles/.

    Get a Volcano 8-)

    Man I wish... there's a couple places around my locale that rent them out, I've been thinking about it forever

    (FYI to anyone else, the Volcano is a ~$600 table vaporizer that fills up balloons with vapor... it's widely considered the best vape experience you can have, and great for group sessions)

    Man, the volcano is an ancient piece of shit compared to my pax 2.

    I bought one on eBay, maybe, 10 years ago for ~$250. I gave it away when I moved because it was a pointless waste of space and time in comparison to the last 10 years of technology. I didn't even know they had any value, because its such a piece of shit.

    There's also the Mighty, made by the same company. Only portable vaporizer approved for medical, I believe.

    Went in to get a indigo pro but they don't have the cartridge I wanted. I ended up with this disposable to try this out. It does exactly what I want and it's nice. Wasn't expecting the nasty taste though.

    Also ended up spending way less then I thought I would.

    This is the way to go. I've got one myself.

    For out and about the standard cartridge oil pens that you can get at most dispensaries are pretty good and work with any cheap battery really

    The threading is pretty universal

    You talking about volcanos? Their build quality is really high, they are pretty far from being "a piece of shit".

    I mean, I don't know if we're thinking portable or stationary vaporizers in general here but in my experience the Volcano was absolutely the best

    Not to mention being able to pass the balloon around is a super easy and great method for communal use and is its own sort of fun

    The Volcano Digit is in a class of its own. Probably the best you can get.

    Pax is the go to for out and about though, for sure.

    So concentrates.

    Is it all the same or is there variance between the companies?

  • BurtletoyBurtletoy Registered User regular
    I'll have to tell my buddy he should sell that shit if he kept it. He didn't really want it cause we had used it one time together and he also wasn't impressed.

    I'll have to let him know other people still value them. It was the analog one, not digital, but yeah. I still think it's a piece of shit

    Just read reviews. With concentrates you'll want to pay attention to the extraction method as there are a number of different processes that result in different products/flavors.

    If you do go the way of concentrates you'll typically be looking at a different kind of vape rig than what you get with a flower rig. Concentrate vape rigs are more dab-adjacent. The unanimous winner for portable rigs for concentrates is the Saionara atomizer which is literally just the atomizer that you attach to regular e-juice vape rig. I also have a Yocan Evolve Plus that isn't as great a rig but is infinitely easier to use.

    Personally, I've ended up primarily using disposable vape pens along with the Toko Gold for refillables. I also own a Volcano, 2 PAX's, and a few other things. Nothing competes with the simplicity of a basic disposable/refillable pen however.
