    How much maint is there?Gman

    Almost none. Brush it. Invest in some iso pads (cheap). Mine is going on two years. I don't always recommend but you're an advanced user and you'll figure out the few peculiarities. It is a tasty pipe. I keep mine on its charging cradle. Can convert back and forth between flower and concentrates (only a liquid pad to remove) within two minutes. One if you push it.

    It is a great personal pipe for those who value taste and smoothness extraordinarily high. One bowl gives me three full draws and the fact I still use it and advocate it reinforces my now long term view. "Certainly not for everyone" though is always my first admission.

    I think @ssaucyc515 just got one too and is enjoying ?
    I do know people who only use it for concentrates. I mostly use it for flower, but **IF** you're going to consume concentrates without a water rig, in terms of smoothness that's the way to do it. So it *IS* my de facto portable "dab pipe" for those relatively rare times portability really is desired.

    That's a great question, and by "hash" I assume you mean traditional flower hash (not oil)?

    I simply don't know. In all honesty I've not had that sort of hash in so long.... BHO budders, shatters, etc, THC Distillates, and Rosin is really the limit to my experience.

    Pitch the PERC'S....POISON that Lies to the Brain. In reality, Oxycodone Increases the perception of pain after a few days use. They used to call Cocaine "The Big Lie", its just a Fib compared to Opiates.

    You are correct sir. Little bricks of beautiful hash, not bho or anything like that. I am really enjoying hash because it's a similar high to flower but more powerful. If I take the same amount of that live resin I get too messed up.

    So, I suspect that both of us have decades of experience with a number of substances including opiates. I know I do.

    With that said, and with the extremely jaundiced and suspicious eye that I keep on them, there is indeed a time and place for them and it was there and then.

    Just saying "pitch the percs" is not sound medical advise (and WTF takes medical advice from a vape board, right?) and failure to treat pain adequately can often negatively impact injury recovery.

    Do as you wish, but as much as I dislike them, this was absolutely appropriate and absolutely needed in my case.

    Cheers

    I THOUGHT the same for 14 years.....as i previously stated, like Cocaine, its a BIG LIE, IMO ! Since eleminating them from my life 8+ years ago, i get 10 times the analgesia from Acetaminophen or Ibuprofen and Toradol puts those to shame.
    It all started with Epicondial Tendon surgery and Hydro 5s, 14 years later 16 Oxycontin 80's Injected was the daily dose. When i was CUT OFF by my Dr., i ran into to a fellow that was Prescribed 96 Oxy 30's@day and Fentnyl Suckers for BREAKTHRU PAIN.....DEA would often arrive With his Mail Shipped Prescription of 2,880 Roxie 30's and 90 Suckers. He Didnt take that much(I was supplied 500 30's @mo), but, his doctors kept writing for him.
    One of my "customers" provided me with a Subutex one day, 3,048 days ago and ive Never looked back. From an initial 16mgs@day, down to 2mgs@day today.

    Agreed. I'm glad marijuana has medicinal effects for folks but it is a poor substitute for opiates when they are really needed. It is important NOT to throw babies out with their bathwater. Because some opiate users developed some severe use-issues does not negate their validity to those who really need them. The "big-pharma" unholy alliance with the insurance" industry that we have now absolutely has its warts, but the same soon will happen to MJ once insurance companies begin to decide what is and isn't covered and in what form it should take which will OF COURSE be different from what the MJ user believes should be covered and in what for it is delivered.

    It has been and now is even a stronger view -- national medical marijuana legislation if it ever comes will end flower as we know it.

    Re "doctors" on TV, you mean physicians on TV. They went to a glorified trade-school, never wrote or defended a dissertation, do not possess a Ph.D., and I refuse to permit them the "doctor" category whose etymology means "to profess/teach. I am a real Doctor. They are fakes. My best friend is also my physician and I love to remind him of this whenever he goes all "you must show me deference" arrogant on me -- except of course right before the annual prostate exam :gasp:

    Back in the day (when coke was expensive and weed was cheap) I would get it often. Just as you describe -- concentrated flower. We would burn it on the head of a straight-pen through a piece of cardboard and inhale through an empty beer can with the bottom cut out.
    But I have not had any of this sort of thing for at least ten and perhaps twenty years.

    My *guess* is the FF2 or any convection vape would not do well with it? Doesn't it NEED to combust? (showing my ignorance on this subject -- combusting is the only way I've ever consumed it).

    It is very dangerous to be "cut off" of opiods of previous long and consistent use. Yet, that is what the ATF has done -- make physicians scared so they cut people off. (btw disclaimer -- in my politics the ATF should be a convenience store).
    Oklahoma (technically being an Okie lets me talk about them with impunity!) suffered especially hard from the opioid crisis. Small cities like Duncan (where half the "criminals" were opioid addicts) were simply overrun by the problem, which is essentially the same as the Crack epidemic" from the 80's but with poor black people. But now that it is a poor white people problem, I do notice a better attitude being exhibited towards rightly wanting to treat it as a medical rather than criminal issue.

    I picked up this tip on another forum and it works great, so I thought I’d mention it here. I’ve added an Aspire (Nautilus?) 510 Drip Tip to the PFE on my hopper. It fits securely enough that you can just about pick the entire unit using the tip alone.

    It’s much more natural on my lips than the PFE but it still let’s me feel the heat of the vapour, so my hits are much better regulated than when using a j-hook or water piece. They cost as little as £3.29 including postage in the UK...

    Here’s a link to a US site selling them for $4.45

    I'm getting me a nice fat 14mm j-hook!!,, when its time for me to get a hopper, not a bad tip though , this is the j-hook I'm looking atyhcv3taeu1u0jwxl.jpg

    that will be great. It’s all I use w my GH.

    My PFE or cheap jhook is just a hair off and leaks a little air.

    So I have been using OG MP w the silicone condom and that seals completely.

    Jhooks are super useful, IMO.

    Good choice.

    @52 I’ve already ordered one. It will come with a wall plug and also a battery sled, so it can also run on 18650’s. It seemed like a good idea to have a back up for the propriety hopper batteries.

    I've heard other people say that they get a better air seal with the silicon guard on?
    Do you think I possibly look for a different j-hook or do you think that it's the PFE?
    I was really looking to do the whole j-hook with pfe thing,

    Sneaky Pete makes one that looks promising and I was checking the one from Lotus out as well, it looks a little bit on the large side though,
  • Baron23

    I really don’t know which is at fault or if it’s just a bit if one and the other.

    It’s a VERY minor leak and I have used my PFE extensively in the past. Just decided I like the OG MP better right now.

    Man, I cannot seem to get max vapor to reply to my emails and I'm not a member over on fc. Could I get one of y'all to copy and paste my questions over there to ask them or if you know the answers let me know. Thanks a lot for the help. :)

    "Hello, I'm very interested in your grasshopper ac adapter but I had a few questions. When you try to hit a grasshopper with a weak/dying battery or the backend connection isn't perfect you get the blue light quickly flashing meaning the heater isn't getting 100% of the power, does this fix that since it's a constant source of power? Also, do you think this will work with the new Hopper IO coming out? Thank you for your time and have a great day."

    So can anyone tell me what's going on with the grasshopper situation right now,

    I thought they weren't selling grasshoppers till april, but on there website they say that they are ready to sell and you can buy one?

    Are they just selling the old 45 watt grasshopper? Tried to get the info from the site but there not being very helpful? Seems like they just want to sell me one without explaining what's going on? Are they just selling the old 45 watt one now?

    If anyone knows what's going on with the buying the grasshoppers pls drop a note.
  • Terpenetime

    @spider I haven’t visited the Hopper Labs website recently but I recall reading on FC that they had a few of the OG units available. The new IO definitely isn’t coming until April and I don’t think you can’t even order one currently :chin:
  • spider
    440
    ok, that makes sense,
    That's pretty much what I thought was going on.
    Apparently you can still buy the OG units but when I emailed them and asked them about it they were being very vague?
    They were probably just trying to sell me one without explaining the facts,

    Thanks@Terpenetime for clearing that up, appreciate it:: :up:
