    SWIM has been looking for a relatively quick, discreet way to smoke his weed (for times when he can't sit down with his friends and have a nice smoke-out session). SWIM has heard about e-cigarettes, and how some people will load weed into the nicotine cartridge slot, and basically smoke it like a mini vaporizer.

    Now, SWIM isn't expecting it to be amazing, but does anyone have any experience with smoking weed out of an e-cigarette, or with owning one? SWIM doesn't wanna spend the money if it's not going to be as good as SWIM thinks it is.

    Dude all swiy has to do is take a regular cigarette, carefully empty out the tobacco from it in such a way that it doesn't tear or lose its shape, then just grind up some weed and carefully pack it in there. Of course, the filter will filter out THC, but it will still get swiy just as high as if he smoked a joint. Swim has done this innumerable times, and sometimes walks down the city street in plain daylight smoking what appears to be a cigarette. Swim has even had a cop drive right by him while he was smoking weed, but because it is visibly a cigarette no one thinks otherwise unless they get a good whiff.

    The filter on a cig does not filter THC. One can easily get high on a filtered cig filled with marijuana. Very common for Swim and his friend.

    The only filter Swim found restricted THC was the filter from a solvent gas mask.

    Thanks, SWIM wasn't sure if that would work or not, but SWIM will try it.

    If anyone still has any info on e-cigarettes and how useful they are, SWIM is still curious.

    ok thanks for that info. Swim had been told previously that the filter would seriously inhibit his ability to get high, but now swim is likely to more actively pursue his stoner espionage.

    Swim was told the same by a junkie (NEVER Trust junkies, they are clueless about EVERYTHING! Full of misinformation), and one day, his friend did it. So, Swim was like "Hmmm." And took some green and loaded up an empty cig.

    Weed cigs are really good. They hit good, and burn good as long as you fill them well. The filter probably helps a little bit too.

    And they work GREAT for stealth smoking. Swim does them all the time in public, and around family. And in private!

    Swim actually bought a 600 pack of empty cigs after trying his first weed cig.

    SWIM can tell you that smoking with the filter in a cigarette tube will lose some of the high. If someone wants to smoke with a cigarette emptied out, after packing in the green stuff, take some tweasers an take out the cottony filter tip, roll up a peice of cardboard real tight about a half the width of the cotton filter, then push that in an it will unravvel itself to the size of the little orage butt tip on the en of the filter, mayby that is not clear, hope it means something.

    Why do some people believe that the high is weaker in a cig, and others dont?

    I don't want to debate the issue itself, but rather, why different conclusions are made.

    Swim says it works just as good. Swiy says no. Why do they have different opinions? I'm just curious :)

    Try smoking a taylor made cigarette without the filter, it is noticeably stronger, not just in taste either but can actually feel the stronger niccotine hit.

    The cotton filter filters out alot of the tar in the smoke, pot being a resinous substance, produces quite a heavy, thick smoke, heavier then tobacco smoke. It sorta just seems logical that the cotton filter will filter out alot of the tar or sticky shit (goodies in the case of weed) , after all that is what the cotton filters are used for.

    I notice this strong debate aswell but am firmly, not agressivly, on the anti-filter side.

    Best of luck.

    Swim is very curious about this issue as Swim uses blanks to smoke in public. Swim has never tried one with out pulling out the filter because he doesn't want to give up any delicious THC. Common sense and lurking around the internet has led Swim to the reasoning that since filters impede getting as smooth a hit, you are already losing some by not being able to pull as much smoke. Also, judging from the fact that even a pipe can become filthy with resin and not hit as good after just a night of smoking, Swim reasons that the filter would probably become so clogged with resin that you would be losing large amounts of THC. If any Swimmers can't be bothered to remove the filters, save them and soak them in alcohol to make tincture.

    SWIM would think the filter absorbs some of the THC which would reduce the high, but if its decent bud it will get someone high either way. If the filter is removed then its pretty much the same as smoking a joint.

    Cigarette filters, like water pipes (ie. bongs), filter out THC from Cannabis smoke. The end result of both kinds of filtered smoke has a 30% lower THC to tar ration than an unfiltered joint. Because of the fact the filters do also filter out tar, this ratio is representative of something even greater than a one third loss in THC.

    swim suggests getting a hand roller an some papers. sure they dont have filters but if u mixe the bud wit tobacco it will cover up the smell a lil bit. plus where swim lives ppl walk around wit rollys all the time an ppl dont think its weed.

    I recently found a disposable e cig in a parking lot. i've been wanting to figure out how to make a pipe out of it and am trying to figure out a way to do it without using the mechanism inside. So far i have cleared out the entire inside and am now trying to find a way to get a screen in there. but as its just a long empty cylinder it's difficult to get it to stay where i put it without falling deeper or tilting over. Any ideas?*

    Ecigs are for nicotine, propolyne glycol and vegetable glycerin. In order to use an ecig to get high, you would have to combine VG or pg with hash. A better option would be a magic flight launch box for herb, or a vapor brothers dabbler for concentrates.
