First of all, hello! I just signed up a couple of days ago and have placed my first order! :-D
I stopped smoking bud about a year ago now and switched over to dry herb vaping full time. (Using Crafty+). I love it and it seems to be saving me money as well as keeping me healthy. My question is, in your opinion which is the most cost effective way to consume marijuana? In my 20+ years of using im still yet to try shatter, wax or e liquid tinctures. What's your opinion on the cheapest / most efficient way? All the best Raggley
Vaping 100% but depends on the vape, I burn though loads of bud on shitty vapes, even my dynavap which I hate and now don’t use shifts though bud if I actually want to get high... a nice bowl of the mighty gets me nicely chilled and a top up with a dosing cap sometimes is plenty, using far less than I’d use combusting for sure. A Log vape is the way forward, my flowerpot Weedeater can get me to brutal stoned off 0.1g lol, it’s just incredible but I far far prefer the ritual of a nice mighty bowl.
Ps. Good call on the Craft+ the S&B products are monsters, looking into the plenty now as the mighty never leaves home anyways.
Really I just need a bigger bowl than the Mighty can offer for big sessions on the weekend, literally only reason I’m considering it. Why didn’t you like it can I ask? I’ve never tried one so interesting you’ve used both so can help me compare.
It holds a lot but you need to pack it to get a decent draw and also it takes ages to get a decent draw because it’s so big it takes a long time to heat the metal tube/ chamber which cools the vapour, but takes a lot of your weed away by making it condense on the inside which is a bitch to clean. It’s like a bigger mighty for sure but just like boxers and fighters, the mighty is bantam weight , fast and great technique, the plenty is a heavyweight, slower and worse technique;) the volcano is a better option for your group sessions, it has a whip now;) I also had one of those but sold it because the vapour made me cough too much. I am a mighty fan boy;)
I use a pax 2 for herb and the pax 3 internal oven for hash with vape wool, I think the trick is getting the right amount of wool round it too little or too much can mess it up. I load the base with a small amount of weed and top it up with chamomile. I don't think the pax gives an even cook, that's why I only put a small amount in. Hash is hit or miss but with practice the hit ratio is increasing. Sometimes I just blast the pipe to guarantee a hit. Would be nice to find the perfect take out portable vape though. Always looking to upgrade coz it would save money.
100% Logvape... Although not a log, it’s very similar I have the Flowerpot Weedeater and Vrod and I can put 0.05 in have 2 nice hits and a little cleanup hit and I’m deffo stoned, first time I used it I was fucking shocked man, coming from someone that smokes a couple of 0.5-0.7 Spliffs at night it very impressive.
I use the dosing capsule with the crafty+ it's a smaller amount and keeps it quite clean! I have the dynavap m and it's the coolest thing ever but unfortunately it completely ruins my lungs! Are you running through water?
Nah, it doesn’t fit my little bong. I agree it can get super hot, especially if I miss the click (I swear it doesn’t click every time!) so I overheat the bastard! The more I think about it, the more I should stick to edibles ;)
good question. I still smoke bud via the good old joint and have tried vaping. Didnt work for me but then again maybe I didnt invest in a good enough dry herb vaporiser, I bought the nebula fuzion, just found it made me cough alot, the higher the heat setting the better the hit but the cough it brought on was pretty heavy. Still didnt feel the hit was anywhere near as nice as a joint. I get that I probably need to invest in a better vape. Was thinking of getting a good water bong instead, with an ice chamber. Dont know if that would save money though but may mean i can use less tobacco + the ice chamber hopefully makes it cooler and smoother....maybe. Also perhaps it was just while I was trying out the dry herb vaporise, but I feel alot of weed was wasted trying to find the best setting to get the best hit, and like i already said it wasnt as good a hit as a dirty old J
I agree with everything u said here, from that lung hit u get to the uncontrollable coughing and the amount of weed u waste trying to find the best temp an stuff...still it might be my cheap vape, dont want to give up on it just yet but dont want to waste anymore money on another
Yeah i probably thought as much. The nebula is a pocket sized one, just makes me cough like a mofo, was £60 I think. Looked at volcano which is pricey, as is the crafty but not quite as expensive. Is the crafty smooth then? Felt like with the nebula I would have to turn the heat up to get a hit, which then meant alot of coughing, its weird because the smoke doesn't feel hot, just irritates the lungs the higher the heat...
might have to take a look at the crafty....
still tempted by a bong with some good cooling system though as well
I was sceptical at first bro. And you can't really trust the reviews online cos they all seem fake/ paid for. Not only does the crafty really chuck clouds compared to the others but also it's just such a smooth air path. That's really what you're paying for. The small portable are usually crap because the heating element is cheap and quite often causes unwanted combustion but also due to their small size, the air path is very short and in turn harsh.
So I took the plunge. Can pay on paypal on a 3 month pay plan as well. But I didnt go for crafty or mighty in end. I went for Arizer solo 2. Ranked in alot of top 10s above the crafty...i know maybe just advertising sites but th more research and videos I watched it seemed the better choice. I dont like sound of the battery or charger on new crafty but maybe it was getting mixed up with older crafty versions. Anyways, this is a high quality dry herb vaporiser which supposedly has good quality vape, also bought a bong adapter.
UPDATE: Raggley, you were right. That extra money spend, as I guess would be expected, does guarantee a more quality vaping experience. The Arizer Solo 2 provides a good quality smooth vape that puts my other vape to shame (Nebula Fuzion). Arizer provides amazing flavour, battery life and easy maintenance and good amount of vape. I can now see myself being able to step away from the baccy...
I didnt go for the herbalizestore.co.uk offer, looked a bit dodgy on trustpilot.
I may check out the volcano in the future, but the Arizer should serve me well for the time being
Hey bro.. I'm happy for you! You made a good choice there.. I don't know if the arizer chucks out quite as much vapour as the mighty/crafty but they are beatifully crafted machines and very high in my estimations. How are you getting on with it?
Make sure it's the Crafty plus because it has the better battery life. The Mighty is the bigger brother.. by that i mean it has a bigger battery although in use it's exactly the same power/vapor output. I prefer the crafty though as it's smaller and charges via usb rather than the mighty which is a wall wart. Feel free to pm me if you need any help
Thanks mate. Given the cost its probs going to be something i look at for March now. Will ping you then. Defo would like to smoke less tobacco, then again i dont smoke cigs, if theres no weed in it i dont smoke it...
Yes I have a pax but having to inhale fairly hard hurts my lungs! I like the flavours it can give and kind of use it to decarb the bud sometimes so it’s better for cooking with, but like lots of biggas say unless you have an amazing vape they don’t get much action, I’m learning that the whole plant is best for health so edibles and oils are getting my attention atm, I’ve just made a canna white hot chocolate and infusing some orange gin to make a hot toddie with, I don’t really like it, but medicinally I think it may work, I’ve been ill so yeah a bit scared to inhale much yet! :)
I also use blockchain wallet and send fees CAN be lower late night/early morning but it is just trial and error. For example, at 7am the other day I was sending 0.0017 btc (£70+) and the fee was £6+ but an hour later it was just over £2.20 At that point I go to the custom fee setting and it tells me "regular" fee is 15 sats/b, so I change that to 10 (about 75%) and the fee comes down to £1.50. The order on LB is PAID within about 10 minutes but the blockchain wallet transaction actually takes 2-3 hours to CONFIRM. This doesn't appear to affect the status of my order, it is still PAID. I have even set the custom fee to about half the regular sat/b, and it has taken 24 HOURS to confirm but the order on LB was PAID within a few minutes. Now, I could have just been lucky so be careful with custom fees but this has worked for me a couple of times so far! :)
The cheapest way that I could find: I use blockchain wallet and I buy btc on localbitcoin's link to my local btc exchange service. Idk why blockchain wallet gets such a bad rep btw. Been using it 2-3 years without any issues.
I've heard that coinomi is cheap but ive not tried it. The way i do it is by sending a large amount of money to electrum wallet. From there you can set your own tx fee. At a good time of day the fee can be just 10 sats/byte. Use txstreet to get an idea of the current network fee
Been checking Bitpanda fees every day for the last week by setting up a purchase on here but not completing the transaction, that's the only way I know to check their current fees which then display prior to confirming transaction. For the last week fees have hovered around £17.50 to £18 which is prohibitive for me. I guess if I want to move my BTC to another wallet it would cost me a similar amount just to do that then another fee to send to vendor, is that right? can anyone suggest another way or is it just a case of waiting for a quiet time to do it? Feeling trapped by these fees even on a 7g purchase
Hey guys! New buyer here, great expierence so far!
The first time I made a purchase on here was using the wallet supplied by paxful and they charged me roughly 15 dollars in fees for an order than was about 40 dollars.
That made me then spend a long time searching for an alternative to use, because those rates from Paxful were absurd.
I found an app on the playstore called "Edge", (they're on apple devices too) and I used it to make a purchase with MJConcentrates. It worked like a charm. You can buy bitcoin and send bitcoin all from the app, and I got charged about 3 dollars for a 130ish dollar transaction.
You do need to verify your ID once when buying coins, so if that's something you don't want then avoid Edge. Though, if that doesn't bother you, I got my coins almost instantly, they sent instantly and the app is really user friendly and secure.
DO NOT USE CEX.IO. The fees are 0.0005 BTC, which was ok to begin with but now that's almost £20 to withdraw. THEY JUST INCREASED THE MINIMUM WITHDRAWAL LIMIT TO 0.002. My order was for 0.0019 & wasn't allowed. I had deposited the exact amount for the order but needed to add more. The minimum deposit is $20, which is more than I have left in my bank account now. WITHDRAWALS TO MASTERCARD ARE SUSPENDED. I now have £74 in my account, which I cannot withdraw to my card, I can't pay for my order & I can't deposit more to increase it. If I do add funds there will be over £10 sitting there, which I can;t get back out. DO NOT USE THESE THIEVING SCAMMERS.
I'm commenting just to tell people to NOT use Wirex. Ridiculous fees, appauling service. I transferred Eth a few weeks back... it took 6 days to transfer and they told me it was network congestion...never again
Well, with Bittylicious you need to verify your idenity still i'm sure, so if any bad actors needed to trace you, they can always trace back to bittylicious from whatever wallet you're using.
I've never used Samurai Wallet so I can't speak on it really.
when you use any wallet to send to a seller of any kind, legit or non legit they can't see any of your personal details, until you give them your name/address for shipping of course.
I would say there is no real risk when it comes to using non anonymous accounts. the biggest risk we as buyers take is having a (wrongly) illegal substance come to our house. Which, lets be honest here, the police don't really give a shit about weed.
Thanks! I was thinking that using samurai (anonymous wallet/android app) could protect the identity of the ultimate buyer (me). Of course on the block chain you could see where the BTC originates (my verified account) however the wallet sending the BTC to the seller would be anonymous (with VPN used) therefore no way of proving you actually made the purchase.
Can you tell me anything about the sellers wallet/security status (what if little biggy/seller was hacked)
I'm looking to make my first purchase but still trying to understand everything
Honestly though, when it comes to weed, expecially small amounts, police won't go through the ball ache of trying to prove stuff like that, like I said the biggest potential issue is one of the RM.
I wish I could tell you about the sellers security, I just don't know anything about it to be honest. I think it would need to be escrow that got hacked to compromise our details? I know that the addresses and orders gets deleted from the biggy servers after x amount of days.
I placed my first order a week or two ago and have had 4 different things come since then. Just make sure you stick to reputable sellers and check out the reviews before you place an order.
The second I got charged X amount in fees by paxful I hunted and managed to find this wallet thankfully, the reviews and all that from others are good and my personal experience with it was good too so atleast you won't be charged exuberant amounts now lol
Bitcoin privacy. Can someone recommend a good hot wallet?
I don't want to keep using exchanges to send crypto, due to the crazy fees (and lack of control over them) and also privacy concerns. Can someone recommend a wallet where I can send my crypto to then make private payments. I've made some effort to find answers here, but I'm struggling to find exactly what I'm looking for. Many thanks Raggley
When the network is busy the fees can be extremely high. It's worth knowing though that the fee is the same regardless of the amount you send so it really pays to make larger orders. When you have your coins on an exchange you generally have no control over these fees, but in your own wallet you can adjust these fees to an extent
Hello biggas and good month to everyone. Let's get to the subject then , I read first time here about dry vaporizer as all my friends are old school had no idea about this. People say its better for you ? I'm looking into it now but I want to start from a low price see if I like it first. What's everyone's opinion on this . Is it really doing the job; and gives you a "fully bodied " high without something missing from it ? Any help would be appreciated
I have just recently been converted. Thanks to advice from other LB'ers. I purchased a more high end dry herb vaporizer. You got to spend more to get good quality vape. I bought the Arizer Solo 2.
- easy to clean - good battery life - quality vape flavour
After a few days I have worked out my perfect temp and can get well stoned on 4-6 sessions on this vape, using a fraction of the product I used to use on a couple of J's a night, also no more money on baccy!
Also got a bong adapter for it and a new bong. One tip, stick with it, find your perfect temp. Expect some coughing as well as you adjust to coming off the baccy...happy vaping! Ping me if you want to know the best place to buy...
hope it works out for you. only other advice is that the cheaper the vape the less of a nice time you are likely to have. I also bought a cheaper vaporizer for £60 a while ago, the nebula fuzion, even on lower temp settings I cough like mad, just bad quality vapour and i have to pull alot harder on it too. I really noticed the difference with the extra money spent on the Arizer Solo 2.
Another tip, if you got paypal, they do a 3 month interest free payment option....so spread that cost for that pricey bit of kit that may just save you alot more money in the long run...
I used https://magicvaporizers.co.uk/. They were brilliant. I placed the order and it came 3 days early. Tracking and comms were excellent. Whatever vape you get you should also get a pipe/ water bong adapter..
I avoided https://herbalizestore.co.uk/ even though they had a good offer on the crafty +, trustpilot reviews were not good. Actually magicvaporizers.co.uk/ had same offer but were sold out. I only avoided the crafty plus in the end because of battery/ charger issues I had been reading about.
fair enough. Arizer solo 2 is really only for dry herb I believe. I think Mighty and Crafty offer accessories for vaping product in different ways. But dont quote me on that as I am not familiar smoking weed via concentrates or e liquids.
I suppose I am not sure I answered your question about the high. As I am getting more accustomed to this way of getting high I honestly think I get a much stronger high, but it kind of creeps up on you and it is a bit cleaner. Right now I am enjoying the excellent G13 Haze from TGT using this vape, whereas with a spliff or 2 I would feel it immediately and then it would linger for a while and then wear off after a few hours. With Vape it creeps up after about 20 minutes and then the high feels stronger and does feel like it lasts longer. I took a single session midday today, its now coming up to 7pm and i can feel it is wearing off now, so a nice mellow day time high for 7 hours off 1 session. For an evening session I have a couple of bongs with the Arizer and then a couple of pipe sessions with it as well. Then I am fully baked, and it is a stong high but I am not sure it would ever be strong enough to whitey on..then again I dont do more than 4 - 5 sessions in the evening, maybe if more I could achieve that lol...
I honestly think I gave up on vaping the first time around becuase I didnt know what I was doing, only had 1 vape session and becuase i didnt get same immediate hit gave up on it feeling i would be wasting gear...i should have persevered, then but as already mentioned my first vaporizer was not good so even more reason i gave up at the time
Also you will have left over AVB from vaping which you can then cook with and still get high off it...bonus...just got to find a simple recipe of some kind
I haven't used mine yet cause its a birthday present but I will soon. My biggest concern its what you said about the high , I hope it works well and use the bud correctly and not waste any, as for the potency other people say its not as potent as a splif but I will find out myself.
yep i understand why. its gonna be different for different people i guess. I would say yes the spliff is more immediate and a dirtier high that for me doesnt last as long. Its a stronger head high for me on the vape, but you need a few sessions to get there and the high is different, hard to explain..
I have a mighty by Storz and Bickel, easily one of the best on the market, I quit smoking 7 years ago, never looked back. I would advise that you should bite the bullet and buy a good vaporizer, they are expensive but worth every penny. The cheaper ones are OK but you will not get the most out of your product. Just think of all the saved money on cigs n rizlas etc when you do buy. Not to mention health benefits which was my main reason. Good luck.
Yeah I’m the same, got a Mighty and a Flowerpot... Both best of the best, the Mighty will never get me more than a 6/10 the flowerpot can get me to a 10/10 but you’ll never replace the Combusted feeling with a Vape, it’s a doffernt high, not necessarily worse but when I really want to chill out I still smoke a Spliff sadly...
Seems like a good few Mighty users on here, anyone used anything else that gets close to the performance in a perhaps nicer, smaller package? The cleaning of the Mighty is a pain in the arse and it’s getting less use due to it.
BTC will go down, but only because that's what btc does.. it goes up and it goes down. Ultimately it will continue to grow, 100k, 300k, 1m. It is the OG currency and wildy recognised as the best way to store value
