Concentrates

Question:

Do the G pens give you as good of a high as when you smoke dabs out of a bong?

Is it worth buying one?

    I’ve heard a lot of people who dab on the regular say the following about the gpen:

    It’s not to get super high, it’s to get by.

    They are super easy and concealable and people (who don’t know) simply think it’s an ecig.

    Hard to whip out a torch and skillet/nail in a movie theatre.

    In my opinion.. No.
    I think it’s more a novelty item but that’s just me, and I know PLENTY of people would disagree.

    I had a G Pen for about a week then sold it. My friend has a Trippy Stick and I’ve tried that out too.. Not really a fan of either… Cool?..yes but not for me.

    Nothin like dabbin or dunkin.
    Hope this makes sence to you…I’m really fucked up right now.
    :) peace & pot

    Well I don’t own a G pen but I have an Omicron, and depending on the quality of your wax it can get you pretty baked. But it will never be the same as if you had just dabbed your concentrate out of an oil rig. Oh and btw I don’t suggest getting G-pens as their carts are glycerin based and made of plastic, they’re just remanufactured e-cigs.

    The gpen or trippy stick dont get u as high as a dab out the rig. I say those cuz those are the only ones ive tried but i suspect theyd all hit about the same.

    Id say for the $100 ud spend on a vap pen u could find a basic lil flavor savor at ur local shop with clear dome an glass nail an basic dabber to dab on. Ive seen some basic local blown for $89 over here in AZ. They look pretty alright, i wouldnt mind dabbing out one. Gpens an the like are cool tho, i still have mine. I only use it for straight up dabbing in restaurants, big events, and in line at Fry’s.

      Do the pens waste much of the dab? Or do you get as much out of it as a nail rig?

      If u load a good .2 – .3 dab in the pen u can vape that for awhile, like for hours or for a few days. So it conserves alot. Only thing is its only produces fat clouds for the first 5 or so rips. U can defiantly hit it afterwards and it will produce a light but noticeable vapor cloud and have flavor, but id say it takes more rips of those light vapor rips to feel high, let alone like a fresh dab out the rig.

      Out the rig in with the same amount ud dab everything at once but ud be so freaking dabbed ud be good for 2 hours or more.

      All in all, the gpen or the like are not a waste of money or oil. However id say their best used as tasters like to test ur oil out to see if its good, how it tastes etc. The vape pens do taste good, the potency is just not there for some reason. So if u have a rig id say go for the pen, if u do not own a small rig id say get a very small portable starter rig first.

      Does that answer ur question man? :)

      Yes that helps a lot. Where could I find a small portable starter rig? I wouldn’t mind getting one, but I don’t want to spend more than 80 or 100 dollars, which seems impossible. Im a poor college student lol

      I feel u man. Much respect to the poor college student!

      U can most likely find a small affordable rig at ur local headshop. Im in AZ and i see local blown 4inch-6inch oil rigs with everything, dome,glassnail,and dabber for $80. And they look like theyd pull a lot of flavor. Idk if where ur located the smokeshops are lacking or are far away, but checking out a few seems like the best way to go. Google a few an check out reviews an possibly call them to see whats up.

      When u go down to the smokeshop, and if u find one for $80-100, ask whats the best they could do on the price. Let them know ur a cardholder and a college student. Theyll most likely hook u up 15%-25% off if ur a nice respectful guy too.

      Is heading to a local shop with in reason? Or are they too far? Or?

      I live in st paul, minnesota. so I have access to quite a few smoke shops. Just not sure if the dabs phenomenon has hit minnesota shops yet.

      I just looked at the link. That will work if u got a 90*stemless bong. If u do go for it! Male belly button style nail and adapter. Looks pretty chill man :D

    You’ll never know unless you try it. Anything that conserves your 50+ a gram substances is always a good thing in my book but then again I don’t waste my time or my flowers with concentrates unless it’s solvent-less made. Personally I got tired of smoking nasty oil and all that but I love me some fine hash. So my bottom line answer is get a friend who has one and try it. If you dont have a friend who has one,ask your shop owner a cpl questions that are just vague enough that they don’t throw you outta their shop and use the word “concentrates” not oil,wax,or budder.
    Peace out A town Down.lol
