    out of a clear 100 watt lightbulb, a cap from a soda bottle and a plastic straw. Works great.

    Do you smoke the dried up leftover weed after you've vaporized it ?

    I made that before he joined this site, read it here tho.


    i didnt really like it at all, charred too much, didnt give the "vapor" effect for me.invest in a cheap vaporizer off ebay if you agree with me.


    plus, does that not look likesome kind ofcrack pipe to anyone else.

    You dont want a cheap vaporizer. I say this out of personal experience and general consinsus of the board. A lightbulb vaporizer is about as cheap as they get, so i wouldnt try going cheap again. Also when lighting the weed, you dont wanna smother the bottom of the light bulb with the flame trying to get the weed as hot as possible. You want to add flame as neccessary. You only want toadd more heat when the weed isnt burning the THC after.

    Remember that a vaporizeris only used to burn the THC off of the buds, not to burn the buds and the THC, becausethe buds offer nothing more then pretty green coloring, and holding the THC

    What does that translate in USD (if u know off hand if not dont worry). Vaperbrothers makes a very nice one for ~$160USD, they also make a Dual heating element one. [​IMG][​IMG]

    swim and his mate made one of these (lightbulb vapourisers) and they both agree that its a good way of smoking but absolutely nothing compared to the real thing. they have been arguing about how to make it less harsh. I think that the blow-hole (dunno if this is the right word) is not big enough (its not much more than a few pin pricks thru the bottle cap.) so I think that making it bigger will make it easier on theier lungs and throat. does this sound reasonable?

    SWIM also made one of these, they work great for your dorm room where smell is an issue, but other than the nothing beats the real thing

    I hear tell that when using a vaporizer, it makes Indica and Sativa the same so you cant tell the difference when it comes to effects. Is this true? Is there really that big a difference between Indica and Sativa to notice?

    The reason Indica and Sativa feel so different is due to the different ratios of the other cannabinol... sativa has less THC and more CBD, where as indica has more THC and less CBD (if I remember right).. anywho, I believe THC is the most readily evaporable... therefore the THC would be the more prominent cannabinol... so, someone could say they percieve a vaporizer as making them similar (they would be noticing the THC similarities).... but, in all honestly you can usually tell the difference... SWIM personally finds vaporizers a totally different buzz in general.

    Here is a quote from Hilary Black of the British Columbia Compassion Society:

    "Indica and Sativa are the two main varieties of the cannabis plant used as medicine. There are many strains that are crosses of those two varieties. Within each of those varieties and crosses there are a huge number of individual strains, each with a different cannabinoid profile and effect. According to anecdotal evidence, the Indica strains are a relaxant, effective for anxiety, pain, nausea, appetite stimulation, sleep, muscle spasms and tremors, among other symptoms. The Sativa strains are more of a stimulant, effective in appetite stimulation, relieving depression, migraines, pain and nausea. We are now aware of specific strains that are effective for specific conditions and symptoms."

    I use this medical example as it highlights clear differences whilst also noting similarities.

    The way this is most commonly reported on a recreational level is that indica is body high and sativa is a mind high.

    I cannot see any reason why You smoking through a vaporizer would change/harmonize the effects of the indica and sativa strains.

    I think what he may be saying is that the THC might burn at a lower temp then the CBD,so theoreticly if using a vapor on an sativa,one might get more of the thc and less of the cbd.
    that said i have no idea as swim never smoked from a vaporiser but it could be possible.. in theory
