QUESTION: I only burn flower. If I wanted to get into vaping, what vape pen would I need for the type of cartridges offered here? What's the difference between refills and carts?
@OzBaxter have you vaped flower? It's a slightly different high and is a little easier on the lungs. I still smoke like a fiend, but try to vape at least a little a day. I then use the ABV (already been vaped) material to make THC infused honey.
I do have some carts. They're really handy for traveling. The carts here are standard 510 thread carts. You just need a battery or pen that has the 510 thread or a magnetic adapter. I've always like products from The Kind Pen. My go-to is a Breezy (small and discreet with great battery life), but I also have a Pure, and just picked up a Jiggy last week. Although I haven't used all the Jiggy's features, it's a 510 cart multi-power battery, plus a concentrate pen, and e-dab straw. It's quite a versatile device! Refills are just the same cart distillate in a syringe. It's a cheaper DIY option to refill your own carts. Heat and flexible syringe tips are very helpful!!😁😎🧐
@OzBaxter Hi 👋 That’s all I ever smoked was bud up until about a year ago when I started having problems with my lungs so I switched over to carts and wax concentrates from @MerlinsMagic There are so many different styles of batteries that are out now for the carts. When I first started smoking cartridges, I went to my medical dispensary and they recommended a 510 battery it’s a little black stick that the cartridge twist’s into, and it’s worked okay it gets the job done It's a good little battery to start with, it only costs $10 and if you would like to order one just let me know and I’ll send you the website information. I saw one on Amazon and also, I have a puffco pen that I can smoke concentrates out of or I can twist my cart on it and use it that way but it’s not worth $90 I have been trying to find a different device and yesterday @Rubygirl816 told me about a website called pcktvapor.com they sell empty cartridges, that you can use for the refills they sell on here and I saw they also sell devices. They have one all you do is twist the cart on it and it’s good to go so I'm probably going to order me one. It’s called Pckt VRTCL and I'll let you know if it's worth getting after I try it out. The difference in carts and refills is the carts you get on @medman are already filled and there ready to go for you all you need is your 510 battery stick or device. The refills takes getting use to a bit. You would have to buy empty cartridges and you use the refills to fill them yourself with. I will let you know what I think about the refills on here. it's my first time trying them out, I ordered a couple yesterday to try. If there good it would be the best deal to get the refills between the carts and refills. I have gotten refills from my medical dispensary but it’s my first time getting them from here. I bet @Rubygirl816 or @MigraineWarrior79 might be able to recommend a better 510 battery or device to you. I’m sorry, I was jabbering on so much and Good Luck my friend!!
@TheProfessor were did you find flexible syringe tips at? That's something I would need for the refills
@harleygirl_100 my trick for the refills is to us a hair dryer to warm up both the syringe and the empty cart just a bit before filling. It makes things flow so much nicer. Just be careful because it will come out fast.
@OzBaxter i really like the YoCan UniPro battery. It’s a magnetic one so you have to keep up with the adapters but works great for the 510 threaded carts. It’s variable voltage and has a nice display that shows you voltage, ohms and there’s a little timer/stopwatch on it too (although quite useless). Good battery life. Accepts a wide range of sizes of carts. My local vape store sells it for $30 bucks.
@harleygirl_100 to be honest, my better half is a nurse.😊. Larger gauge blunt syringe tips work as well. That and a hairdryer as @TheMad710Chemist said, to get everything warm and runny minimizes messes.😎🧐
@TheProfessor @harleygirl_100 Wow THANK YOU for the thorough response! I have a wax pen and have tried that. But it's kind of messy and wax comes and goes here. I have a dry-herb vape but, honestly, it makes me cough more than smoking it and the buzz is different. So I think I will try the Breezy 510-thread as suggested. Probably won't try the refill angle unless this becomes my go-to and it becomes too expensive. But I have noticed there are a variety of strains available as vapes that I don't see on the flower menu. So can't wait to dabble.
Again THANK YOU for taking the time to go through all of that. I will let you know the results 👍🏼
Now that I think about it, my Yocan Armor Vaporizer that I use for wax...I bet that has a 510 thread battery. Think that would work?
@OzBaxter if it has 510 threads, and I think it does, it should work great! Seems to be a similar design to my new Jiggy!
@TheProfessor Sweeeeet! I will let you know how it works once I get a cart LOL Thank you again, Prof! Thank you @harleygirl_100 !
My yocan regen that use for wax also works with carts but I have to take the adaptor off first even though the adapter also has a 510 thread it only works on stock wax atomizer but not familiar with the armor or if it has adapter
@OzBaxter Your very welcome 😊 I’m here to help, just let me know if I can help you with anything at all..😊
@TheMad710Chemist & @TheProfessor Thank you both for the tips with using a hair dryer with my refills. I'm going to try this method out whenever I get my refills in.😍 I have gotten a refill once before from my medical dispensary but I didn’t know about the hair dryer trick and I ended up with a sticky mess everywhere,🤦🏻♀️ but hopefully this time will go much smoother. Thank you guy’s again for your help. 😊
I’ve made that mess before @harleygirl_100 😆😊! Trial and error ultimately made it pretty messless. Any little messes get cleaned up with a rolling paper and smoked!😉😎🧐
It sounds like you got the hang of working with the refills @TheProfessor I'm just learning with these refills myself. If I spill it, 🤦🏻♀️ I haven't learned how to work with it good enough yet to get it in a rolling paper. 🤔😊
@harleygirl_100 you can purchase syringes from your local pharmacist
Once you heat up the syringe, and the cart your refilling, you really won’t need the blunt tip. Just keep the tip towards the middle, of the cart, and it will pour right in. There are so many different 510 thread batteries. I have a vessel I use.
Sorry didn’t answer sooner, wasn’t able to get into the forum for a few days @OzBaxter @harleygirl_100
@harleygirl_100 @TheProfessor @Rubygirl816
Holy CRAP. I am baked !!
Got some Gusher carts in (chose randomly). Screwed it into my Yocan Armor....and it didn't work.
BUT...I messed around with it a little, found there was a little residue on the battery contact, cleaned, and then hit it like it was clogged up (which it wasn't) and DAMN I got a cloud! Nice to find something new to enjoy. THANK YOU everyone for your advice!
Sweet!! @OzBaxter I occasionally have to get out a q-tip and a little alcohol to clean the connections. Enjoy!!😎🧐
@medboy any idea if the refillables/syringes are coming back? Or more choices for vapes from loud and mmm?
@Southernbellesmoker Take a look at Loud's vape menu. Just added a bunch of Vape carts and Live Resin disposable vape pods.
I'm finding the Pineapple Express cart from Loud harsh to hit (burns my throat a little) but it has a spearmint/pineapple flavored buzz that gets me super ripped to the floor. The Gushers from Merlin are smooth and flavorful, great for a long car ride. Going to try Merlin's Orange Cookies next.
Just added a ton of new vapes from a different person. Let me know what you think, I liked them personally, no issues with clogging, smooth a a nice light flavor.
