In the chat this morning there was discussion about vaping and some of us thought it would be good to start a thread on the topic. I personally got started in medical cannabis with a D8 & CBD concentrate vape which worked really well for me.  However, as I learned more about the the big business and industry that has developed, and how commercial extracts are made, I am moving toward a home grown solution. I would love recommendations on portable vaporizers based on your experiences since I am looking to vape my own bud and not concentrates

To start the discussion, here is my thinking. BTW, I am not an expert or health professional, I just try to be informed.

CONCENTRATES:
 * Usually commercially extracted, solvents are typically used (personally, am not thrilled with this fact).
 * If not home grown, go with a reputable company that published testing data.
 * Is convenient, and fairly easy to dose.
 * Reduced issues with smoking tar and smell (room mates/neighbors)
 * Can select strain-based terpines, but relatively limited selection compared to grown
 * Inexpensive vapes that are rechargeable (typically $20 presently)

HOMEGROWN
 * No concerns about solvents or cutting corners for profit margins
 * You know exactly what you are vaping
 * Relatively unlimited choice of strains and cannabinoid variability to choose from:
      - including high/low THC,CBD, etc.
      - unlimited terpines and flavors to choose
 * Reduced issues with smoking tar and smell (room mates/neighbors)
 * vaped bud is already decarboxylated and residuals can be used in edibles
 * bud vaporizers are more expensive than concentrates
      -varies from portable units starting at about $100 and go upwards to table-top volcano models.

What are your thoughts on vaping?  What experiences do you have with vaping your own flower?

Personaly i started using my storz & bickel Mighty portable vaporizer for my H.G 3yrs ago, and i never sett fire to my bud since, i like how discret it is, the smell from vaping bud disapers a lot faster and dont stick to me in the same way smoking does:) 

also i found that after starting to vape my bud, my consumption went down by a lot , i now use half the amount to stay medicated compared to when i was smoking it Grin

the by products of readdy decarboxylated AVB and heat extracted oil from the cooling chamber also helps with ceping total bud consumtion down:)

Thanks for your input!  Yes, there looks like there is a lot to like about then Mighty, and a price-tag to match 😮. Vaping is sure more efficient use!

Hands down the best way for me to medicate. 

I've been vaping dry herb for about 4 yrs now ive had a few vaporizers in that time.

I have a mighty for home use and a dynavap for out and about.

I've had a flower mate v3 (was terrible) 

Airrizer tower vape ( a cheapish volcano, really good btw) 

Without doubt its been the best move in terms of efficiency and medical value.

I have crohn's disease and a musculoskeletal condition in my leg that I've had since birth.

Cannabis have changed my life in term of comfortable living.

Vaping is hands down the best way to medicate, I have 1 fat bowl and instantly feel relief from my crohn's, no more pain, no going to the toilet every 20 minutes for the first half of the day.

The electric shocks in my leg go within minutes and my ankle is fine to walk on with little pain.

Cannabis really is a medicine and vaping is the best delivery system for that medicine.

Yeh, its a bit on the pricy side, as most quallity vaporizers are, i tried some cheap ones before i invested in it but they both broke in less then one year :/

So i figure whith the mighty lasting me 3yrs and still going strong, pluss all the bud it has saved me over that time compared to my old smoking habit, it was monney well spent.

for me annyways Smile

@stoned-ape I've had a fair few vaporizers and without doubt the mighty is the best but I do hate how big and heavy it is.

It's worth the £230 all day long

@stoned-ape Yea the crafty is weak sauce.

I do like that it doesn't have a ac charge port, you can use a USB phone charger I believe.

Do you have the new model?

It has orange logo on the front underneath screen

♥️💛💚

@stoned-ape it has USB-C port and a supercharging feature.

Battery lasts longer too, But it's almost €400.
