Amethyst Buys a Bong

kooperfan

Summary:

Work Text:

“Amethyst, look! These bags have pictures of puppies on them! But they smell kinda weird.”

Steven held the tobacco package over his head, smiling.

“Ehhh, that stuff’s the worst.” Amethyst threw a knowing look at the hemp shop proprietor. “Jimbo keeps the good stuff in the back. Everyone knows that.”

The man smiled. “Nice to see you too, Ammy. What’re ya buyin’?”

Amethyst pointed at the bong shelf. “Need me a new one of those.”

“I just sold you the one with the racing stripes last month!”

With a half-hearted shrug, Amethyst said, “It broke.”

“It fell off a waterfall!” Steven yelled, almost knocking over a magazine display. Jimbo stared at him. Steven started apologizing profusely. Amethyst just laughed.

“Uh… who’s the kid?”

“Don’t worry about him.” Amethyst shapeshifted her arm, stretching it over the shop owner’s head. “Oh! This one, this one!” The bong looked like a giant, gold-plated tube of red lipstick.

The shop owner didn’t react to the long purple arm wiggling around his head. “It’s 200 bucks.”

“That’s so much!” exclaimed Steven.

“You tryin’ to screw me?” asked Amethyst with a grin. Her elongated arm finger-walked across the man’s shoulders.

“Don’t play with me, Ammy. I can’t afford it.”

“Fiiiiiiiiiiiiine.” Amethyst flicked the shop owner on the nose, then pulled the bong from the shelf. With her other hand, she pulled a sack of money out of her gem. “That’s probably enough.”

Jimbo sighed. “These are gold pirate coins.”

“Bye!” Amethyst giggled loudly.

“It was nice meeting you!” said Steven.

Out on the boardwalk, Amethyst greedily eyed her prize. It seemed to be glowing in the afternoon light.

“Ohhhh yes. This is gonna be great.”

“What does this thing do?” Steven asked innocently.

“It’s. it’s just for fun. But you can’t tell Pearl.”

Steven pretended to zip his lips.

“I knew I could count on you, buddy.” Amethyst fumbled for her cell phone, still holding the bong close to her chest. “Why don’t you head to the Big Donut? I’ll catch up later.

Steven smiled and skipped merrily away.

Amethyst listened to her phone ring impatiently. Finally, someone answered.

“Hey, Vidalia! Watchu got goin’ on toniiiiiight?”

convection vs conduction vaporizers

Conduction vs Convection : What’s the best type of Dry Herb Vaporizer for you?

Typically, a dry herb vaporizer will heat your flowers either through conduction or convection heating.

Every single week dozens of you ask us to help you decide which of the two methods is best for you, so we figured it’d be worth having all the answers in one place.

Below we’ll run through the differences and the pros and cons of the two heating methods. After reading this, you’ll be either to decide whether a conduction vape or convection vape is best for your needs.

How do conduction vaporizers work?

Conduction vaporizers use direct contact to heat your herbs. First, the battery heats the coil which in turn heats the walls of the vaporizer’s oven.

As a result of being in contact with the walls of the oven, the vapour is produced from the herbs.

Conduction vaporizers are the most popular type of vaporizer and come in a variety of shapes, sizes and price brackets.

Despite being based on old technology, many users swear by conduction vaporizers and will use nothing else. Even today, some of the worlds best vaporizers (Davinci IQ, Pax 3) still use conduction heating.

Conduction vaporizers are similar to cooking over a stove; they work really well when there is more surface area than mass.

For example, it would be almost impossible to cook an entire chicken in a frying pan because only the part of the chicken actually touching the pan would cook.

To cook the entire chicken efficiently you would have to cut it into slices so more of its area is in direct contact with the pan. For this reason, when using conduction vaporizers, it’s best for herbs to be ground quite finely.

What are the advantages of conduction vaporizers?

  • Conduction ovens are usually very powerful and produce vapour within seconds. Conduction Vaporizers such as the Black Mamba and the Pax 3 are famous for being able to vape dry herbs in under 20 seconds!
  • The speed of conduction vaporizers makes them a popular choice of medical users or anyone who microdoses. Sessions can be very quick.
  • Conduction vaporizers are also more affordable. This is because the technology is older than convection and they do not require as many parts.
  • Conduction vapes tend to be more reliable and easier to maintain when compared to a convection vaporizer in the same price range.

What are the disadvantages of conduction vaporizers?

  • At very high temperatures, it is possible for the herbs closest to the heating element to burn
  • Conduction vaporizers can be inefficient. The herbs closest the heating element may cook faster than the herbs in the middle.

How do convection vaporizers work?

Convection vaporizers work by creating an atmosphere of hot air in your vape’s oven. It is this hot air that provides the heat that will vaporize your herbs.

Back to my chicken analogy! Convection vaporizers work similarly to a kitchen oven. An oven may cook a slice of chicken far slower than frying it, however, it will evenly cook a whole chicken, inside and out and there is a very low risk of burnt bits!

As a rule, convection vaporizers are far slower than conduction vaporizers but they heat your herbs more gently and efficiently.

What are the advantages of convection vaporizers?

  • Convection ovens are a favourite of many because there is minimal risk of combustion. This is because none of your herbs come into contact with the heating element. As long as you do not turn the temperature up above 210c the steam and air will not be hot enough to burn any herbs.
  • Convection vaporizers are great for larger sessions as they evenly heat the entire contents of your oven. This helps your herbs last longer.
  • Generally, convection vaporizers, taste better – again this is linked to the more stable temperatures inside your oven. Conduction vaporizers typically taste hotter and dryer when compared to a convection vape in the same price range.

What are the disadvantages of convection vaporizers?

  • Convection vaporizers require a bit more patience to use. Even the best convection vaporizers (such as The Mighty) can require well over a minute to reach vaping temperature.
  • Convection vaporizers are typically more expensive too – this is due to the technology being more advanced and containing more parts.
  • Finally, convection vaporizers have a bit of a skill curve. Customers new to vaping will require a few goes to get the hang of it. The most common faux pas is sucking too hard. When you do this you pull all the hot air out of the oven and replace it with cool air and as a result, your herbs don’t cook!

So which is better? Conduction or Convection Vaporizers?

The popular consensus on vape forums is that convection vaporizers are the superior method of heating. However, this view is largely formed because convection is newer, shinier (and expensive!).

In our opinion, the right heating method for you depends on your personal preferences.

If you’re looking for a vaporizer that is affordable, heats fast and is small and lightweight, then a conduction vaporizer may be more suited to you.

Conversely, a convection vaporizer would be the better option for someone who’s priorities are great flavours, high efficiency and have the time to sit down and really savour a session.

Typically, a dry herb vaporizer will heat your flowers either through conduction or convection heating. Every single week dozens of you ask us to help you decide which of the two methods is best for you, so we figured it’d be worth having all the answers in one place.

nautilus bong

Black Leaf Ice Bong ‘Nautilus’ with Diffuser & Percolator

The ‘Nautilus’ glass bongs from ‘Black Leaf’ are very popular since a long time among smokers. With this ‘Nautilus’ Icebong comes a new version on the market: it has a 15-slit-inlinediffuser and a further special – the 4-slit-dome-percolator. Through the 15-slit-inlinediffuser the smoke is swirled very strongly, which filtered many of pollutants and settled them out on the bong.

On the next station comes the 4-slit-dome-percolator. It filtered again and makes the smoke more gentle. The Ice-notches are also for more cooling and so the smoke is absolutely gentle, when you breathe it in. The sure ground is strength two times. The big bowl has a roll-stop-function.

Roy Perkins – 05/27/2020

I can’t believe this back around Christmas I took my wife to the cemetery to put flowers out. We made 6 or 7 stops. So when I went looking for my vape it was gone fell out the pocket of my door. I was heart broken! Middle of March back at the cemetery walking back to my car, I see this red thing in the mud. Driven over,rained on,snowed on. I couldn’t believe it! Of course there’s no way it would work. It still had a charge and it worked. Ha your product rocks

Melanie Gindlesperger – 06/04/2019

I LOVE this pen!! I’ve had it for a year now and haven’t had to replace the heating element. When it starts misbehaving I give it a good cleaning and a charge and it’s back to working. The battery is starting to get warm after letting the button go but I’m sure that’s from the use and abuse it’s taken ?? I highly recommend this pen to anyone that has a tendency to drop things!!

I’ve had this Vape Pen for over a year. I clean it and it still works amazing!! Highly recommend!! Even my bf will steal it from me. It’s high quality and long lasting ! Worth the investment! I only use WAX concentrate with it and clean the barrel with q-tips and alcohol.

Greg Mannix – 08/20/2018

Love the convenience and size of this pen. The great choice in colors was a bonus! Thank you Atmos!

Review: The Cloud V Phantom Premium Portable Vaporizer

The Cloud V Phantom portable vaporizer brings it back to the basics with its simple and durable design – not to mention its amazing performance.

El Cid

  • March 14, 2016
  • In 2014, Cloud V introduced the Phantom herbal vaporizer and it was quickly praised because of its sturdy design. That and the fact it didn’t actually burn your herbs like other portable pen vaporizers on the market.

    Even though it was a great starting point, it did have a few drawbacks. For example, it only had one heat temperature setting and it came with two batteries that you had to remove to charge. But luckily for us, Cloud V heard the feedback and has now introduced a premium version of the Phantom.

    The results? It’s certainly a step up and has some great features over its predecessor.

    Cloud V Phantom Kit includes:

    • 1 Cloud Phantom Premium
    • 1 Cleaning Brush
    • 1 Packing Tool
    • 1 Pair Tweezers
    • 1 Micro USB Charging Cable
    • 1 Owner’s Manual

    First Impressions

    I was really impressed with the quality and build of the Phantom Premium. It feels rugged, durable, and it has some weight to it too. It resembles something like a small Maglite with a micro usb charger port on the bottom. Because of this, it can easily fit in your pocket for on-the-go vaping adventures.

    The Phantom Premium we received came in red, but it’s also available in various other colors. Throughout the whole device you’ll only find a single button to control its functions – keeping it simple.

    Design

    The Phantom Premium is just around 6 inches tall and about an inch in diameter. It comes with a plastic mouthpiece that snaps off to load your dry herbs. It also has a locking mechanism to keep it from popping off while it’s in your pocket.

    With its single button function design you can say it’s very simple and user-friendly. Press it three times to activate the Phantom and it begins to heat up at the lowest heating temperature setting of 374°F (green light). Hold it down to switch to the middle setting at 410°F (blue light), and again for the high setting of 436°F (red light).

    As far the settings go, I found that the low and medium settings work best. The high setting seems a bit too hot for vaping unless you use the Cloud V Aqua bubbler that cools down the vapor with a water filtration system. It’s definitely an accessory to consider purchasing also.

    Performance

    The Phantom is great for dry herbs. It produces a good tasting vapor on the low and medium settings. The high setting seems to be a bit hot and can irritate your throat.

    For the best performance, The Phantom has a deep metallic heating chamber that holds about .04 grams of material. Loading it up with that amount should give it a consistent and even cook.

    As far as battery life, the Phantom comes with a rechargeable battery that initially has to be charged for 6 hours. Once fully charged it will give you a good 45 minutes of constant use. Overall, the Phantom Premium performs great for a pen style vaporizer.

    Final Verdict

    With all the new improvements the Premium has to offer, Cloud V really has a contender in this already crowded market of vaporizers. It’s a quality-built vaporizer that will produce good vapor on the go or at home in just 60 seconds. If you want to take it to the next level, then you should consider picking up the Cloud V Aqua bubbler attachment for an even smoother and cooler vapor.

    The only drawbacks with the Phantom Premium is that the company only provides a one year warranty, and it can only be used with dry herbs. If you are considering getting a vaporizer for the first time and don’t want to break the bank this is a great deal.

    The Cloud V Phantom portable vaporizer brings it back to the basics with its simple and durable design – not to mention its amazing performance.

    glass pipe hole too big

    How to Properly Fill Different Bong Bowls

    The way you fill your bong bowl affects your smoking experience. Improper packing can waste your herb. You will also need much effort to light it up. Here are the different bong bowls and how to fill them up.

    Single-hole or stock-bowl

    1. Take out the bowl from your bong.
    2. Tear out a small piece of nug. Size should be big enough to plug the hole, but not too big that it will block air flow
    3. Place it inside the bowl so that it sits on the hole. This is to prevent the ground herb from getting pulled through the hole.
    4. Fill it up with enough ground herb to reach either half-way full for a single rip.
    5. You can load the bowl up to the rim if you’re sharing or wish to hit more. Remember to lightly tap the surface from the edge to keep the herbs from falling. You can use your thumb or the edge of your lighter to pack the herb, so it sits below the rim.

    Honeycomb or waffle bowls

    Some bowls have a flat underside with six holes that around the bottom. Others, like the honeycomb bowls, have holes at that go around the edges.

    1. Place the bong bowl on a table.
    2. Rip you herb or nug to small pieces. If you wish to grind your herb, don’t grid them too much that they will fall through the holes.
    3. Place the herb inside the bowl and lightly pack with the edge of your lighter, going around the surface .
      If you’re using a honeycomb bowl, make sure not to pack at the edges to allow airflow.

    Keif bowl

    Kief bowls have a bigger hole at the bottom that you need to plug so that the kief won’t fall in.

    1. Start by ripping off some bud or nug into little bits about up to more than half of the bowl.
    2. Use the tip of your index finger to press the bud inside the bowl lightly. Use enough pressure so that it will cover the hole, but not enough that it will plug the airway.
    3. Fill the bowl with enough kief until it reaches up to the rim of the bowl.
    4. Lightly pack and level the kief on the surface.

    Always consider the size and distribution of the holes in your bong bowl when packing your herbs. Big holes would require light grinding, while smaller holes allow for smaller bits of herb. Make sure to remove the stems before grinding. They don’t burn well and can block or fall inside your bong.

    A properly filled bong creates a better smoking experience. By allowing good airflow, your herb will burn just right without wastage.
