Charging three vaporizers right now (1 flower, 2 oil), which could be evidence of a problem. (The new oil vape BFJ recommended came and it's beautiful today, so gonna smoke some flower out by the pool later after I clean the flower vape).

I have two of these and they’ve been great.
Mine came today. However, when I plug it in to charge it blinks a few times and then the charger turns green. does that mean it was charged at the factory?

Correct. Should be ready to use. I had to remember to turn it on first though (click the button five times)

If I remember correctly, you could let it charge a bit before use, but it does come with some charge to it already.

So got my pen on Saturday, wondering if I can buy a cartridge to use with it or do I need a syringe to fill (I have a lot more selection of cartridges.)

Yeah, it just takes a 510-thread cartridge, which is mostly industry standard. You can either fill the cart that came with it if you make your own oil or know someone who does or unscrew the "default" cart and screw on a store-bought 510-threaded cart.

Yeah, there are some different types, but those are almost all specific to a particular company who makes the cartridges. The 510-thread carts for this pen probably make up about 80-90 percent of the carts sold in a typical dispensary.

Went and got 3 different cartridges (on sale!) and all fit.

So this is my life but pretty much whenever it is inconvenient shit happens. I used the new pen around lunch today. And I was feeling good. Then I get. Call that my oldest has a flat tire. Fuck. Of course I go help but it felt like It took forever to get five miles away. And it cost me 150 because somehow the sidewall got ducked.

But I did get to show her how to change a tire which I hope she never has to do. She felt bad. But I do think she hit a curb for no reason which caused the flat.

Maybe she was stoned too?

All joking aside, I think it's crucial to teach young drivers how to change a tire. I'm shocked at how many people can't. My father had me rotate his tires when I was 14 or 15 to make sure I knew how, and I've had to change friends tires so many times through college and law school because they didn't know how. Just remembered having to change a tire stoned out of my mind in my BU days leaving Walden Pond. Floating in the lake, baked, on a very hot day and it started raining out of nowhere while remaining sunny. It was glorious.

Totally agree. Can we add how to use jumper cables, how to add oil,and how to check tire pressure to that list?

Fuck yes. I always have jumper cables in my car, and can't tell you how often someone needs a jump and nobody has cables, or they don't know how to use them. It could not be any simpler. My MiL used to get us AAA memberships for Christmas, and I kept telling her I was never going to use them, and she can't fathom that someone would change their own tire. Then again, my FiL can't change a lightbulb... She finally stopped when we both got cars that come with free roadside assistance.

Changed my own tire at night on 78 east (right before the 24 split) and then got home to realize USAA has roadside included. That was fun.

I had my engine seize up on 78 just past the 24 split during rush hour. Died in the middle lane. Tried to use my 10 mph momentum to turn two lanes with no power steering and cars whizzing past me at 85 mph horns blaring. I made it to the shoulder and it took over 90 minutes for a tow truck to get to me, so probably better to just change it yourself. I had a hole in the oil line, leaked until it was empty.

Yeah...the roadside assistance thing is worthless usually. We have AAA and when we got a flat tire a few months back, we called them and were told 'Well, it maybe 3 hours before we get anyone there' (this was a movie theater parking lot, not on some back road somewhere). I just went ahead and changed it myself.

A couple of months ago I had the emergency brake hardware in one of the rear wheels blow up/out shortly after having a wheel bearing replaced. At the time it happened, I had no idea what was going on and just slowly tried to make my way home. Stopped at a shop up the street so they could just confirm something was fucked up, then drove home. Called AAA the next morning to get it taken back to the original mechanic (near where I work) and they had a flat-bed there in like 10 minutes. Yay AAA!


Anyway, I don't trust my car anymore and any little bump or shudder or squeak makes me flinch. Boo!

So I Have been testing the new pens voltage levels. I hit a couple of puffs on lowest and got a little buzz. Then golfed and pumped it up to the second level and felt good but sucked at golf which may be related then yesterday put it at highest level and took a righteous rip and in swear I might still be feeling it.

The color doesn’t make the THC level higher it just burns it faster making for a bigger hit and using it up quicker. Have I been doing this wrong?

Wouldn’t a bigger hit that uses more oil mean more THC? If the average vape has say like 750 mg of THC (the one I’m holding and getting ready to reload has 867 mg according to the state mandated testing and packaging in NV) then if it took 100 hits (I know it’s more) to empty a vape you’d get 7.5 mg per hit. If it took 200 you’d get 3.75 mg and so on.

I know that when I smoked flower in California last year I was very inexperienced and smoked a joint with a buddy like a cigar. It was something like 200+mg in whole. I didn’t know what planet I was on and had a full bore freak out for a full 30 min or so.

So I wasn’t clear. Yes I think the bigger hit you take it’s obviously going to contain more thc. But I thought I got stoned to the bejeeeus on the highest level and it turns out I was still on middle. So had I taken same hit on red level I’d still be high.

I’ve never had a variable voltage pen before.
