Hey guys...Hope you're all doing fine today...I was wondering what you people use to vape hash and what vaporizer you might recommend? I have a number of vaporizers,mainly for bud, including 2 Flowermate Pro 5s,S&Bs Mighty,Pax 3 & Sapphire by Storm.I'm currently using my Flowermates to vape hash in special capsules through a variety of water bongs and this seems to generally work ok,as the Flowermates maximum heat setting is 230c...Ive tried hash in the S&Bs capsules for the Mighty,which was unsuccessful,since the top temp only goes to 210c...so any advice on other vaporizers that best fit the job would be really appreciated...is "the hotter the vape,the better"?....Cheers guys and thanks in advance! :)
Not electronic but the Vapman has been a game changer for me regarding hash. I can't explain why the electronic route doesn't appeal to me, too hit and miss with the temperatures? Sandwich between this that and the other in a capsule... Too much faffing! But the vapman... Sublime. Cheers :)
Very useful info - thanks to you and Polly, as you've both persuaded me to invest in a Vapman. Looks like I'll need to learn how to use it properly, but the thought of a reliable hash vape was far too tempting to miss. And there seems to be some ok deals on at the moment too. Thanks for the tip!
What a nice comment pranava108! There is a small learning curve but after a few sessions you do get there.
To be honest my first experience, after reading all the wonderful reviews, wasn't that pleasant! It was too hot and very wood-y/burnt tasting - despite getting the mica version (protective heat shielding my left Boris - My slang term for testicle...)
Thought I had a dud BUT after a couple more goes and refining my technique I was very wrong. Get the right jet flame technique and don't rush the hits, as the Vapman does get a little hot. With my 0.05g (ish) of hash, I will have about 4-6 hits have a rest to let it cool and hit another 4-6 times. Smooth, tasty, mellow times my friend. (Oh and it does herb just as good - very good extraction on all counts!) :)
Thanks man - those tips sound very handy. So keen to get some decent hash vapor, so will be trying all your suggestions out. And i think Boris is a highly appropriate name for that part of the body :-)
You are so right👍 Although beautifully handmade and high quality you will wonder when you first see it as to how it can be a top performer amongst ‘000s of vapes when it’s fundamentally so simple!? 😵💫🤷♂️
And so small. From online videos I knew it was small but the close up views give the impression of a larger size, somehow? Anyway, upon opening for the first time I had a "Spinal Tap Stonehenge inches not feet" moment and thought I'd ordered the wrong size and bought a dolls house version!
Ok, alright then it's my old eyes stop laughing! :)
Haha😂😂…I did that but with the delivered box!…I’m looking at this little square box and thinking “well in can’t ALL be in there!?…and then the smaller crate…then the tiny egg😳😵💫…then the teeny weeny Vapman…😂😶🌫️🥰
Amazingly, it arrived this morning (was due tomorrow). And, RM have just restarted deliveries here - we’ve only had 1 in the past fortnight - so 3 orders I’ve been waiting for (hash, flower, edibles) all just dropped too! It feels like Christmas.
Vapman looks great - totally hear you both about how tiny it is - and there’s definitely something attractive about it.
At a gig tonight though, so my first proper session with it may have to wait until tomorrow…
Haha yeah that would not have gone down well. Had a couple of small goes on it when I got home, with mixed results, but have now copied all your tips, watched too many Youtube tutorials, and tonight's the night. Will report back...just need to get through a day's work first (and avoid temptation until I'm done)
I'm interested to know how you get on. Yes there is a lot of information out there but can be overwhelming! Length of flame this for that amount of time with all sorts of variation... Don't over think it and after a while you "get it" and adjust your heating in reaction to what the Vapman produces. Underheating is better than overheating.
Sorry I feel like I'm becoming a bit patronising, hell I've only had it a month!! I'm sure there are other suitable vapes for hash and I don't work for Vapman!
I do however now own all the butane gas in the world. Mwah hah hah and you thought your gas and electricity prices were high! :)
Spent the evening with it, some hits better than others, and then at some point it just started working consistently. Not quite sure what I was doing differently though - perhaps slightly longer time with the flame, and/or covering the air holes.
I've been heating it twice for a few secs before my first draw, and then once for the rest. I've been getting 2-3 rips from each bowl (using fairly small amounts).
I still forget about the air holes (covering them creates denser clouds) - and keep burning my fingers (more so the higher I got) - so once I've got that down I expect we'll be golden.
Really like the fact you can microdose/vape smaller bowls...and it definitely works well with hash - I use the microdose screen which is pretty easy to do, and to clean afterwards.
There's always been a period when I've switched from combustion to vaping when it feels like something is missing. A few days of pure vaping has always corrected that, so expecting a similar experience here.
I'm using the longer glass stem, so the flavour is good: comparable to - but not better than - other vapes I've used. It makes me cough a bit, but that's always been an issue for me.
Cool update, thanks! I don’t think you do anything much different I think it just clicks and you are friends🥰 I use the glass stem and it definitely works for me in keeping it cool, but I agree trying to use the side holes can get really hot on the fingers. I very rarely use them tbh. But you will keep improving if you are like me. I had my best two experiences on it, last night (Moroccan taffy hash) and today (Moonrocks), best ever! 🤩👍
Will do. My first couple of (rushed) attempts were mixed - I still need to find the sweet spot between combustion and cloudy vapour - but can see the potential. Will have a proper session this evening and let you know how that goes.
Please report back too - keen to know how a fellow newbie gets on with Vapman
No worries👍😻 You might find it worth checking out a few YouTube videos or reviews for the learning curve. The included instructions didn’t really work for me and people kept saying it’s ‘intuitive’ and I wasn’t sure what they meant, but your sweet little Vapman will really grow on you🥰. I still think I’m improving my technique.
I use a long glass mouthpiece, and after a 5-6 full second (“one elephant two elephant…” 🐘) heat I blow very gently down the mouthpiece to guage the quality of the vapour by what will come out of the base. 4 second heat and repeat. 2-3 second heat and inhale. (Weed needs much less time). Vapour is cool, smooth and very flavoursome. It hasn’t made me cough which might sound unusual where it’s obviously getting super hot but initially you tend to under heat so as your technique improves you don’t really overheat.
Remember you are working the bowl so the first rip might only be the “appetizer”…heat again for the “main course”….finish with the dessert😋😍 (just typing this means I’m gonna go find him🤤😂)
I’ve yet to find anything that brings more out of quality hash🤩🤩
Ive just made some notes of that Polly...as usual you seem to have mastered the art of "vapman vaping" so I can now only wait hopefully a short period of time for postie to deliver...then I shall carry out your advisories on my new vman! So many thanks mate!
I must say you can just place hash in the Vapman bowl and hit it but I would recommend getting the microdose sieve or two and placing that in the bowl and putting hash on it. (So a bit of faffing!!) This saves on cleaning the bowl as some types of hash can get really stuck on there. (Better to stain the sieve than the bowl!) Really small amounts blow me away. 0.05g as strong as 0.15-0.20g in a pipe. A little learning curve but becomes a nice routine. :)
I agree that it’s incredibly economical!…is there any device that delivers a bigger hit for a smaller bowl?😵💫 For straight hash I just protect that golden bowl with cotton bacon. I use the sieves as ‘pie trays’…squashing down a wax or resin & weed paste mix. 🤩 Last night I mixed Afghan Black hash with fine crumbled bubble hash in the pie dish. Bloody marvellous 🥰🔥🥰
Ok, I know we are only in mid Aug,but I was wondering what your best strain you've bought via LB has been to date?...Theres so much choice right now & prices have not(yet) risen that much against other goods on the market...so if there was one outstanding strain batch,from an outstanding vendor....what & who would it go to???
For me....hands down....for taste,effects,price and pure 100% grown with "absolute love and care"...it just has to be British Bulldogs "Jack Herer"....What a total gem & have to say that its going to take a lot to surpass this one for 2022!...BB is a legend in all aspects from his incredible stealth to his so obvious love of his craft as a grower....Hats off to this great man and congratulations on this magnificent grow...So "Jack Herer" from BB is without doubt my "Strain of 2022".
That's really kind of you to say buddy, I'm so glad you enjoyed it, makes all the hard work worthwhile to get great feedback like this!
Just finishing up some Wedding Cake. Really struggling with fighting these temperatures, even with the new LEDs but they seem to be just about ready to flush, just don't want to pull them too soon. Got two big dehumidifiers running to try and stop any bud rot setting in with this high humidity coming. Would be an absolute tragedy to lose the crop at this point as bud rot spreads like wildfire.... Christ it's stressful! 😥
Anyway, fingers crossed it survives as it smells lovely!
Thanks again for the kind words buddy, really means a lot.
Yeah she's a lovely grow, stinks and lots of trichomes but I really have been struggling with the weather recently. Even the AC unit isn't getting the temps down quite enough during the day. The worry, as I said before, is bud rot this late in flower.
The colas are huge, but oddly enough that's not something that's a positive in high temp, high humidity environments as its sooooo easy for rot to set in under the surface with big colas. More mass = more moisture in the centre of the buds, etc etc .
Anyway, I'm doing everything i can to keep it cool and dry so I'm really hoping the crop will be decent.
I'll deffo let you know when it's ready. You've made some really kind posts about my grows that I've noticed so I'd love your opinion on this grow.
Wishing her all my best wishes BB, the first 2 grows of my friends turned out some beautiful big buds but each time over half, including the biggest ones were rotten inside. They switched to autos exclusively after this
Thanks my friend and I really do feel your pain on the Wedding Cake grow in these challenging temps!....Please put me on the list for some of this as WC is another one of my previous fav strains....Seems as of today weather is returning to some kind of normality, so maybe we can all breath a sigh of relief :)...Keep up the great work BB...You are much appreciated and loved by us all :)
Sassy's most definitley came through with the choc taste! Smooth, creamy on exhale. With coffee chocolate aroma. It was gamble for me, as I don't even like chocolate, but the bud looked so tempting, I gave it ago. And then went back in for more.
How is your collection going Polly??...Last time it was most impressive & only something we could only aspire to...I can only wish that "Mimosa Weds" will be a benchmark for us all! Yes!!!! Take care my friend :)
Oh it’s just nuts, I have no self control on here!😳 Apart from hoovering up carts before SCL close, I’ve been adding Taffy Coffee hash coins from Hashishin, Moonrocks from Canadian Imports, a taste of fantastic Letcho Punch from MKK 2020, the wonderful Stoney’s from Pistach and that’s before mentioning any green! ….oh and a great selection of Cannacaps!….oh dear..oh dear…..😻💥…(and 3 new vapes💥👍)…
Oh my God Polly! You must have a designated "weed storage facility" at "Chez PollyPuff"!...and there's me thinking that my labelled,dated and reviewed Kilner jars in my special sealed picnic box was bordering on ocd! lol!....Its all round to yours this weekend then??!! haha!
If you are recommending Umme mate,then I'm for one going to try it when I can!...Druids are on the same level as BB so the risk of buying weed that isn't 100% is IMO, non existent! Excellence exists in all markets....least of all on LB...Much love to you mate :)
yeah man even if that specific batch wasn't entered into a cup, i believe it was good enough to be entered for sure :D
very much the same here, the vast majority of my weed purchases are from C.I, with a bit of pistach mixed in there, and just recently yourmumshouse (fantastic vendor also)
i was hoping to try some of the SSH but i was lucky enough to get a sample of the lemon haze and it was fucking delicious for the price, due to smoking nothing but haze in my youth i tend to steer away from anything haze but it was a very nice surprise indeed!
difficult to say with my memory lol, but a top 3 from C.I this year would be the Funky Charms, Georgie Pie, Sherb Quake!
interested to hear what your best from CI might be??
Great choices, I was gutted to miss out on the Georgie Pie, it certainly looked the part!
If I had to pick 3 from C.I this year, I'd agree with you on the SherbQuake! So creamy and smooth. I'd also say their Mac1, then the SSH. But as you know, you can't really go wrong with anything from them 🇬🇧🇨🇦💚
They will do just fine- but use a little cotton bacon to line the oven or dosing capsule to avoid any mess ‘cos they are real sticky, and a tiny slice gets you straight into orbit! 🚀 I’ve been using the little tray (“pie dish”) on the Vapman and it’s sensational 💥🔥🤩
Thanks buddy...yes Umme comes up time after time with really positive comments from so many Biggas....My eyes will be kept open permanently with matchsticks to await Druids next offering...missed out so far,will not miss out again! :)
Thanks and yes,Ive heard others mention GC Poundcake is exceptional...totally agree that BBs JH is the perfect ac compliment to those hazy summer nights and sadly Ive only got the last few gs left....big blow out this weekend i think as summer starts to show its autumn colors!....BB IS THE MAN!
Hey guys! Sadly my beloved "Flowermate Pro 5" that Ive had for the last 7 years,finally "gave up the vaping ghost" last night after so many incredible vapes and highs...Now don't get me wrong,Ive got other replacements standing by like my Sapphire and Pax 3, but I'm wondering, with the price of bud these days and all the amazing variety of strain tastes to be found through our wonderful LB Vendors,is it time to shell out some serious cash and get myself the best vaporizer money can buy?...Ive heard that the "Mighty" is pretty much the Rolls Royce of vapes,so shall I go for this,or should I consider others on the market? So what do you think? Any "Mighty" owners thoughts would be welcome including competitors....Many Thanks Guys...Peace and Much Respect to You All :)
I would like to try the Tinymight. I’m put off by the crappy temperature dial, I like to have a precise number as I switch between low temp CBD and high temp hash and I like a readout that confirms it. I’ll also probably break the glass, and there is something about a rattle that sounds all the time?🤔
The temp dial works brilliantly, and you will still be able to kick it up through the gears if that’s how you like to vape. But tbh the tiny might is designed for hitting your bowl in one not session vaping. And as a result the temp dial is kind of a mute point set to 6 or 7 and rip your bowl in one.
It vibrates whilst it’s heating up and stops when it’s at temp. And I’m pretty sure my mighty vibrates as well so 🤷♂️
And don’t get me started on the flavour, you’ve not experienced anything like it unless you have a vapman or all glass vapes
Yeah, it’s very much part of a ‘repertoire’ 😉…I’ll vape the CBD/THC on a morning dog walk when I need a lift, it’s just the job for the day ahead. I bought ‘CBD Bomb’ and ‘CBD Euphoria’ from The Cheesemaster- both lovely grows and 7-10% old school THC levels. Plus I feel healthy like I’m having a granola bar rather than a Yorkie😂👍
Hmmm....thats very interesting regarding The Cheesemaster...ive seen his shop and always thought CBD weed was not worth the money...didnt know that there was 7-10% thc in his strains...quite like those levels....will have to look at his page again!...Thanks!
…and the last time I looked you can’t buy them in the UK and they wanted a €65 ‘Brexit Fee’ to ship it, and then you are going to get seriously messed about if you need to return it Probably some going cheap on eBay though 😂
Apparently vapefiend in July, that’s what tinymight told me but when I asked vapefiend , they were unaware of that. I was hoping to be able to vape hash a bit quicker as well;) the mighty is a bit slow for hash imo.
Yes,based on what you have just mentioned I think I also will get a Tinymight from VF! I like to vape hash as well,but am currently using my old Flowermate for that, as the temp goes up to 230c(20c higher than the Mighty)...Its not bad, but if TM does a better job,its worth a buy!!
I got it;) it’s pretty good;) definitely a faster extraction. Problems for me are you need to make sure everything is ok with the seals, gauzes and the battery runs out fast. The mighty is definitely better as an all round great vape but the tinymight is more efficient and more tasty. ;)
Thanks for the follow up BB- very interesting, very helpful! I’m not a big flavour chaser and I’m not that bothered about speed so you might have saved me a bundle there😉 Glad you are enjoying it though, great addition to your collection 😂
The mighty really isn’t the best use of your money, and I’m talking from experience.
I WOULD NOT RECCOMMEND !!!!
However there are plenty of vaporisers out there that are excellent. As deadrabb1t said the tinymight is great and a much more hard hitting vape than a mighty. You can consume 0.2 g in one hit compared to a twenty minute session on the mighty.
The anvil is another excellent vape but not easy to get at the moment.
Xmax v3 is worth a shout not as expensive as the other two but performs nearly as well.
Watch some videos and find a vape where the ritual of using it suits your life style and you should be good.
Hit me up through private chat and we can work out what’s best for you. Just because somethings popular doesn’t mean it’s best, and that goes for price to. Plenty of great vapes for under £100 and also plenty above.
It more depends on how you want to vape rather than someone telling you there favourite.
Mighty is really the rolls Royce of the vapes. The taste that comes, the amount of vapors while exhaling, the super battery...
Mine is about to die after more then 8 years surving intense use... Incluind flowers, hash and extracts, taking him to beach , rain, falling down from my pocket.. at this point the temperature led is broken, the outside plastics also a bite broken BUT the engine and battery are working very well!
I have bought more vapes like Da Vinci (they were selling it saying the ceramic chamber gives a better taste) and tried for a while Pax 3.
Mighty is still another level specially because of the amount of vape that it gets.
Share with us your experience after deciding which one and your experience with it
Wow GH, your post really proves what a work horse the Mighty is!👍 I love mine too, but I accept that it is now deeply ‘untrendy’ amongst the vape glitterati 🤩 with all the sleek little beauties that have hit the market since it was born. I think S&B missed a few chances with the new Mighty+, they didn’t need to make it smaller because there is the Crafty but a detachable battery so you can have spares on the move would have been an easy win. But for a weed/hash/concentrates piece of kit that is utterly reliable and virtually unbreakable, I’ve yet to beat it….😉
Mighty owners are like iPhone users it's great that it works and your so happy with it but there are many other options.
For the record is I class my dynavaps as 1 I currently own 38 different vapourisers and use 36 of them ( 2 are beyond awful) in a regular rotation depending on my day, how much pain relief I need at a given time, how much time I have etc.
The mighty is a great vape, it's not the rolls Royce its a 2010 BMW 5 series , old boring and reliable
If that works for you brilliant but please acknowledge there are other viable options
Mighty is hands down the best for flavour and density of vapour. I haven't tried them all but the Mighty stands out as a clear winner of the ones I have...which is why I have one in my hand right now. Mmmmmmmmmm...yummy!
I have a mighty plus and use it with dosing capsules. I put 0.1 in each have 10 a day ish and love it. When it's being cleaned and if I can't wait for a vape I use my XMAX probut self load the herb. I'm an ex smoker and wish I had heard about the tiny might. Maybe I'll get that and try it myself.
If you are into the ‘Art Of The Vape’ and want to spend as much time fiddling with glass and whips and screens and butane etc etc as you do getting high then the Mighty is an abomination. If that doesn’t really float your boat and you want the most reliable quality vape delivery for your weed/hash/concentrates in a pick up and hit then you’ll quickly realise why the Mighty hasn’t really changed in a decade. You won’t be down with the cool kids, but you’ll know why you love it! ❤️😉
The Mighty is a sturdy, dependable vape. As mentioned, some vapes hit harder, some have better flavour, etc. If you are a vape enthusiast like DR, youll likely find something more to your taste but if youre just looking for something good without experimenting with loads of different units, the Mighty usually satisfies the buyer. Its a simple, unspectacular device which does the job.
You might prefer a desktop type like the Volcano, vapexhale cloud evo, Arizer extreme Q or the Herbalizer. Im no expert on these things. If you want to be sure, you should listen to guys like DR as he clearly has a lot of experience with vapes. Much of it depends on what you specifically want : portability, strong hits, flavour, battery life, dependability, cost. Ive only ever owned the Mighty and it does the job.
In saying that, the Tinymight is also highly rated. If you prefer bigger hits, that might be a better option.
It is good to have a selection depending on the occasion. I have the Arizer Extreme Q as a desktop ‘cos sometimes 🎈 balloons are just great fun…other times portability and stealth is most important…😶🌫️
Yes agreed! My Volcano makes me laugh on the rare occasions Ive used it(specially after a few hits!)...The pure theater of the bag inflating like some strange sex devise leaves me in stitches!!!(I'm reminded of Del Boy and the inflatable dolls! remember?!)
I've been using the Mighty for many years and I don't have any complaints. It's the most convenient of all of the vapes I've tried apart from the size and it does a pretty good job of heating up the herb in a consistent manner. I currently have the Mighty+ with the USB-C charging port and it's a nice bit of kit. I suppose it's also down to personal preference but I find the Mighty to be a solid piece of kit if you're like me and smoke herb daily exclusively through a vaporizer. The downsides for me are it's size and the lack of removable batteries. Saying that, they seem to last well over three years even when used daily.
I have had S&B Mighty and a Crafty they are both great vapes and are hassle free but I now solely use a TinyMight for the huge rips! There is no way a Crafty or Mighty can outdo a TinyMight for clouds! Also no plastics! Erghh! Just glass, metal and Solid Oak. If I was to choose again and was set on a portable vape then I would go the TinyMight route.
The S&B vapes are great, hassle free and produce good vapour. The TinyMight I would say is a bit more of a connoisseurs vape for someone used to vaping. It is still a set the temp and forget it vape like the S&Bs just slightly more involved with the (superior) glass airpath/mouthpiece and stainless steel cooling unit. Another advantage is the user removeable/replaceable battery in the TinyMight. All S&B units are factory sealed when the battery dies thats it! S&B may do a battery replacement service but not sure how much that might cost if they do.
Thanks mate...Ive also ordered a water tool connector,stand and a 6 slot dosing cartridge but the total for all that is £296 so I think its a good price and should last me my vaping life(hopefully!) Cheers!
Oh Ive just received my Mighty+ from them! They were brilliant and price matched the S&B vape with another company Id seen on web at a lower price...so,so helpful on the phone too...Vapefiend are terrific :)
Brilliant! The flavors and taste from the Mighty+ is sooooo much better than Ive ever had before...plus the extra water tool is a real bonus. Yeah,its well worth the price tag and will be my "go to" vape from now on!! Cheers my friend :)
Oh cool, I have a budgie a friend gave me but I just need to get the adaptor👍…so it really makes a difference over the cooling tower yeah?…how much water do you put in it?…sorry about the daft questions 😉😂
You fill the Budgie about 1-2 cms above the peculator...the adaptor is also for sale at Vapefiend at £17.99...also a little trick is to fill the Budgie up and then place in your fridge for an hour or two...this further cools the vaper and is much better than just using the Mighty without any water tools...Hope this is useful mate :)
Hey guys..Ive only been on LB for a short time,but just wondered what vendor recommendations you might all have regarding weed & hash mainly,for quality,price,reliability & also most importantly stealth(as we uk,ers still are living in the dark ages!)...So far Ive found TheGreenTeam exceptionally good all round...Whos your "go to" vendor at the moment?....Cheers :)
Thanks for the pic...looks like a good trim! Mind me asking what strain?...Yeah,Ive heard BB is a true legend,but Ive not yet made 10 orders on LB,so for now I cant use him..although its totally understandable why he insists on 10...if I was a seller,I would do roughly the same(but maybe 6 to prove genuine buyers).....Cheers mate :)
