Quit smoking, start vaping
  1. istick 50w quit firing today. My wife has been using the RDA on it which is probably not recommended. It was working fine one minute then it just shut off. It comes back on when you plug it in, but it shuts right back off if you try and fire something. Her Bday is in 11 days so Im thinking of just grabbing a Sigelei or something.

  2. The big boy Sigelei or one of the smaller 50w ones?

  3. Does anybody know the deal with South Carolina selling "CBD" oil in smoke/vape/tabacoo shops? Is it legit medicine, or some weird wording?

  4. They're doing that in cali too at vape shops. As a MMJ patient myself and a big fan of high CBD strains the concentration is so little in the ejuice as to barely be noticeable.

    edit: There is definitely some cbd in it, but it's very little.

  7. It's a bit weird at first. For me it alleviates my anxiety while keeping my mind basically completely clear. Also very good for pain. My dad has chronic back pain and I've gotten him tinctures and salves many times which he says have worked great. It's weird though if you're a daily smoker, for most people, it will give you the feeling that you smoked so you're not feigning for weed like many daily smokers need but you won't really be high. But unless you're talking about like lab extracted cbd there's always some thc in it. Which is why it's high cbd and not pure cbd.

    I do know some heavy smokers that don't like it all. And I don't mean just going for their normal weed instead but that feeling that you sometimes get where you've smoked but you're not really high and you think you should be. So I guess some people would describe it as frustrating or a tease or something. So it's just not for everyone but it's worth trying imo. I used to do a lot of work for clubs like 4-5 years ago when some growers decided to take it seriously and work towards a good crop of Harlequin or some other high cbd strain. One specific crop I had was Harlequin and after tested came out to something like 6% THC and 13% cbd. So you're getting thc still but you're a Norcal guy ldo, and it's not surprising when we find a strain thats 20ish or even higher thc content. Charlottes Web has become very popular and has some of the highest CBD content on average in this area.

    edit: I made Harlequin wax for a few months at this one spot that was fucking phenominal.

    Might get the 150W temp control for $100. Then again the iStick 100W comes out in 3 weeks but the track record now speaks for itself. Im not even going to recommend it anymore. When they work, they work great. But this is 4 failures in the last 9 months. I'm thinking fuck'em.

    well since you are only a part time vapor and still smoking cigarettes, plus using only a tank at around what 25w, rather than using an RDA and maxed out at 50W all damn day chain vaping....I think yours will be fine for a long time. But yes, if you've been paying attention ITT, a back-up device is necessary

  12. I'd like to get something for my wife to try. She hates my vape for numerous reasons. Too big. Too loud. Too vapey. Too gay, etc etc...

    Anybody out there have a recommendation for this specimen? Female vape. Slim. Stealth vape. I really think I could get her to use a pen style. Just needs to be the right set up. I got one shot at this.

  13. I'll be sure to pick up that drip tip. Thanks.

  14. Blonde, you used www.myvaporstore.com? I forget which site it was that you said basically just uses fasttech. If anybody is considering picking one up with the 20% coupon that's on their front page you can get the subbox for 59.99. I'm going to pickup up a small box for a backup sometime in the next few weeks, I only have mechanicals as back ups for the time being.
    Add DexterCain to Rail
  15. mvs is good. Fasttech takes forever if you ever get your item. I just emailed them (MVS)about the iStick but doubt they respond in my favor since its been 4 months and they already replaced it once.

    Showed the wife a bunch of box mods last night and she is hellbent on a sig 150w. Looking at the Omi edition cause she likes the engraving.

    pink iStick mini 10watt (yes i just recommended the istick...fml) with a nautilis mini tank on top or a protank mini. The nautilis will have way better airflow but on such a small mod it may look bulky.

    She sounds like a ton of fun to live with

  18. what a shit show the NJ vape expo turned out to be. Im so glad I didnt drive 3 hours.
    So on Friday the health department claimed they were fielding calls all day complaining about what was allegedly going on in the convention center. People were claiming customers with babies and little kids were walking around the place, underage kids were vaping, pregnant women were vaping, and event workers were subject to the "poison" of vapor clouds. So they sent their own health inspector to the event to take notes. She went back and informed the health department. The health department then sent a memo to remind all the vendors there will be no vaping indoors, and they would subject to fines if people were sampling their juices.

    A fucking vape convention...you can't vape. It lasted all of 5 minutes before people started vaping. The senator himself was there directing the health department to fine the vendors. $50,000 in fines were written siting violations of the clean air act. They actually expected vendors to set up tables outside in 96° temperatures and wait for consumers to go outside to sample their products.

    One of the vendors asked why they were being targeted, and that the clean air act doesn't apply to vaping, its tobacco oriented. The senator said "Same thing." WHAT THE FUCK?

  19. Shitty. We've got anti vaping ads/commercials all over tv from the cali department of health. "new generation of addicts" and what not. I was thinking the other day though, the nicotine isn't made in a lab right? That's kinda what I thought for a long tme but, it is extracted from tobacco right?

  20. There is so much more to the story, Im just catching little bits here and there thats got me worked up and Im forgetting shit. The venue had 2 events the previous weeks one of which was a John Deere tractor expo and the other was some diesel truck show, which actually DID subject the employees and staff to poisonous carbon monoxide and god knows what else....and the health department was totally fine with it. Its a huge power struggle, and money is the root cause. Fuckin New Jersey. You want gambling? Sure no problem. You want to quit smoking? Oh and you want to be able to vape at a vape convention? Nope, sorry.

  22. Very nice. Enjoy the BJ you're going to get.

    I passed my six month no smoking date last week. I really do feel so much better and I'm actually able to get my fatass to exercise a bit without passing out or panting.

    I've said it before but thanks to blonde and everybody else in this thread and my irl buddy djdarkside for encouragement and ideas.

    I know Hank called me out for making it seem like it was too easy or whatever it was that he said. I hope I don't actually come off like that in this thread. I was lucky that I took to it quickly and not too long after I decided I finally wanted to quit. So if it seemed like I minimized other peoples struggles I apologize. It's of course different for everybody and all I can say is that if it's what you want to do, just try to keep doing it. Just like everything else it takes a long time to establish a routine or new habit.

    So, vape on friends!

  23. there is a facebook group that does raffles (called waffles because of some terms of service thing). The girl that runs it goes out and gets some new piece of equipment then raffles off spots for a few bucks each, then when it fills she draws a number for the winner. Its a pretty fun sweat. However, im in for $20 this week and havent won a god damn thing. Its legit tho. Couple of raffles a day. Today one is for the Sigelei 75w and the other is for the Evic VT. Check it out if you're a vapor and absolute degen

  28. How are you guys liking the sigelei? I was using my dark horse on my IPV at like 80 watts and was dripping after every 1-2 draws. Finally started moving the wattage down and I'm hovering right around 60 now. Better flavor and am able to take more pulls before burning cotton.

    The guy at the vape shop was like why are you firing at 80 watts? and my only response was.. "Idk its a 100w mod I just thought that's what you were supposed to do." He also said firing it too high is a little hard on the chip and could mess it up which makes no sense to me at all. Why make it 100w if firing it that high isn't great for the chip?

  29. Shes steady at 68watts with the Doge coming in at .23ohms. She went up to 90 and didnt like it. Going thru a shit ton of juice, and the batteries are lasting about 8 hours. Got the istick 50w back from MVS so she is using that the rest of the day until she picks up another set of batteries.

    Mad clouds tho. Shes happy (she wont be when she sees i posted a pic of her)
