    For smoking. Any suggestions? I hear they're great and conserve quite a bit

    They don't conserve

    What I'm reading says they do - why do you say that?

    Because you will use more weed with a vaporizer than just smoking it

    The high is better, and you're not inhaling smoke, but you won't conserve

    are you looking for a portable one or a table top version? i use the magic flight launch box and i like it quite a bit. it runs on batteries, but it uses special rechargeables that come with the launch box. it would be better if i had the power adapter.

    my buddy uses the iolite portable vape that runs on butane. that works great. neither of them conserves weed, though. in fact, i feel like they both burn through the weed pretty quick.

    i love vaping because i don't get the smoker's cough at all, but there's something so satisfying bout burning weed in a joint, blown glass pipe, or bong that vaping doesn't match.

    pro tip: do a youtube search for the vape you want to buy and watch some demos/reviews. good info available on youtube for most vapes.

    the iolite my buddy has is like the iolite black on this page:

    http://www.iolite.com/

    the iolite wispr is supposed to be sweet.

    btw...i saved my vaped weed leftovers. in times of no weed, i actually smoke the leftovers and get plenty high. i must not be vaping effectively enough if there's left over thc in the vaped weed, but oh well. bonus high. and yeah i know it's low class to do that.

    Dude, I used to strain out bongwater and dry it in the microwave and smoke it......just how low do you wanna go here?????

    I just got this a few weeks ago, and only recently aquired some "fuel", and I'm diggin' it. I'm saving the toasted weed too, for desperate times, but so far it seems like when the resin is gone, that's it. ANyway, I shopped around for weeks, and finally spent more than I wanted to but this seems like a durable, quality device, and I like the adjustable temp feature, though I haven't found my "sweet spot" yet......

    PS: to OP: Don't buy the cheapest thing you can find; the low-end stuff is notoriously shitty.

    i've had a few vapes over the years. i'm currently using a da buddha but i have to filter it though a bong becasue the hot air coming right from the unit hurts my lungs. some people don't have this problem.

    the volcano is supposedly the best available. it's a bag unit and costs a tiny $500 and something.

    i keep reading about using less pot when you vape. for me that's not true. i always smoke more as the high is lighter (can't explain it) than the high from a joint or pipe.

    i just started using a bubbler and i'm using it 90% of the time now.

    i've giggled once in the last 30 years and that was from smoking through a vape. it was embarrasing but what a soaring high. :leaf:

    Yeah, I just can't bring myself to plunk down $600 for a Volcano... I paid $135 w/free shipping and got it on eBay, but I shopped around heavily. I was kinda tripped out to see lots of paraphernalia on Amazon, too.

    I've never vaporized. How close is it to odorless?
