    Thought about the freemax, however the coils don't last that long and I find it very easy to open in my pocket.

    The falcon King beats it for the button press top fill. Only the Aspire Clieto have come close for me.

    My king arrived, haven't changed away from the pre installed twin coil, stuck the free bubble glass on it. seems to run at 0.38 ohms, and got it at about 70w and it's absolutely amazing. (I appreciate the slightly wider top fill gap they have put in it. Thank you for the advice.

    A side note, I did try the aspire Revo a while back which seemed like a good idea in theory but in practice I utterly hated it.

    Thanks for the recommendation

    Never thought I'd be posting on here, but here I am.

    Never smoked in my life, but recently I've been dealing with anxiety-related issues and someone recommended CBD to me so I decided to take a look.

    First off, I can highly recommend House of Vapes in Richmond if you're in the area. I went in fully admitting I was a newbie to it all and the two guys in there were really happy to take me through it from step one, let me test out a few options of vapes and oils and give recommendations, and then once I decided they helped set it up for me.

    I ended up with an Aspire PockeX, which I understand to be baby's first vape, but as I'm not a constant user it suits me better than the big power bank sized tanks some of my friend's use. For the oil I went with Mary Jeanne Sunset which is pretty damned tasty - I think I generally prefer the menthol ones.

    As for CBD, I definitely think it's helps. I'm trying to cut down on my alcohol intake and I find it definitely takes the edge off. It's also helped my sleep a little and even my neck (which has bothered me ever since an injury years ago) seems to be less of an issue. I'm not sure if the effects are psychological or not, (a lot of people out there are calling it snake oil) but it seems to be doing something so that's good enough for me.

    Would be interested to hear other people's experiences with CBD.

    The pockex is a great bit of kit, they definitely steered you right there. You don't need all the subohm type stuff, not really. It is fun and a geeks delight but if it is just for CBD I don't think you need the big tanks.

    As for CBD, I have had positive results in the past. One thing to note is that not all the liquid CBDs can be vaped, some are purely for oral intake.

    @RawShark What's your daily dose? the ~Pockex is a great starter kit, nothing wrong with it, it must have helped hundreds of thousands quit cigs. Which coils are you using to vape your CBD eliquid (not oil, please don't propagate the myth - there's no oil in eliquid and vaping oils is bad shit!)?

    @RawShark If you go back two pages I've provided a load of CBD info to hurt your head. :D

    @BinaryBob101 Yes, you're completely right. Sorry not quite there with the terminology yet. Considered using the oral oil stuff but was put off by people saying it didn't taste so great and took too long to take effect.

    I'm on 300mg which seems to be doing the job. I'm glad I didn't go for anything less than that though.

    As for coils... I'm just using the ones that came with the PockeX. If anyone can recommend replacements for when those ones burn out, I'd be much obliged.

    @BinaryBob101 Oh but in terms of how many times a day I use it, I'm probably vaping 4-5 times a day - my first tank lasted me a long weekend, so I'm not a heavy user.

    @RawShark No worries dude. Yeah, the oil can taste very strongly of weed/hemp.

    If you're using the Pockex then you need the 1.2ohm coils as they vapourise at a cooler temperature. High temps cranking can fuck up CBD molecules, so don't subohm CBD or you'll waste it. Just to be clear, don't use the 0.6ohm coils with CBD because too warm.

    300mg is the total amount in the bottle, not your daily dose and this is where the confusion begins. As with any meds you take, normally you need to take the same daily dose everyday for it to work effectively and efficiently. you need to therefore work out how much CBD you need to vape per day for it to be effective. I personally vape 25mg of CBD per day, which is right about average.

    Cut and past from two pages ago:

    CBD taken on an ad-hoc basis is honestly a bit of a waste of money as the effects are cumulative, that said everybody is different. It's not a instant fix like say, paracetamol is for low-level pain. You need to do your research thoroughly first - in an unregulated marketplace there are a LOT of shysters intent on ruining what could be a very worthy industry, so don't fall for the high volume/low cbd percentage trap. There are a LOT of shysters out there selling pointless low dose, high VG snakeoil, when the researched facts are showing the opposite if you take the correct dosage in the right, efficient way.

    I'm just sampling Ace CBD Vapes eliquid with a view to buying some in, which go up to 1500mg in a 10ml bottle, flavoured or unflavoured (so you can mix it/cut it with your flavoured nic eliquid) - that's by far the most cost effective way of buying CBD eliquid. Very high strength in a low volume. so far, I'm very impressed with their products and they carry all necessary lab reports, they're also a huge manufacturer and have the right clean room standards in a so far unregulated marketplace.

    You then need to work out your daily dose. I started on 25mg and that's about average, but there a decent chart here:

    https://medium.com/cbd-origin/whats-the-best-cbd-dosage-81ec4f95503b

    So if I buy a 1000mg 10ml bottle at 47.95 then I break it down like this:

    1000/25 = 40 daily doses
    10/40 = 0.25ml per day @ 1.20ish per day

    You can then either mix it all to cut it with another flavour of your choice, or fill your pod and if it's a 2ml pod and you fill it with pure 1000mg from the bottle, you need to vape an eighth of it per day (0.25ml is a bit hard to eyeball.)

    I personally find it easier to mix 10ml 1000mg CBD eliquid with 70ml nic eliquid and get both at the same time. Choose higher PG juices to mix in another bottle. High VG will make the isolate crystallise again and you don't want that.

    Think I covered everything there?

    If it's an ongoing problem, you do need to commit to CBD as you would any other medication, or it's really just a wasted expense.

    If you've just started and you're not vaping a set amount, then what you currently feel may be a bit of placebo. CBD works cumulatively, takes a couple of weeks to feel the full benefits. It was a little longer for me.

    @BinaryBob101 Cheers - still working everything out but that's good info, especially in terms of working out a daily dosage.

    That's all you need to work out dude.

    Yeah, it's a must and cause we can't state any medical benefits when selling the stuff, many don't get told about anecdotal dosage stories that are effective, so hardly anybody knows. Always ask for test certs too. We had a few 100ml/1000mg high VG bottles tested independently and most tested had less than 100mg of CBD in the bottle. In an unregulated marketplace shysters will shy.

    Yeah, at 25mg you have 12 daily doses in your 300mg bottle, which I assume is 10ml?

    Been using a Smok TFV16 last couple of weeks. Amazing tank. Flavour and cloud (if your thing) phenomenal.

    Best thing though is 9ml capacity.

    Had to go to a non-regular shop today and despite being asked if I wanted a salt or regular shot (I wanted the latter) as I poured it in my bottle I notice that the disinterested shopkeeper has given me salt.

    What am I going to expect from one salt in a 50ml bottle? Too weak? Too strong? I have a little liquid made up which will probably get me to about the evening and then all bets are off.

    Hi guys

    I have a nunchuka uwell vape. (spelling may be off) I went to change the coil and the glass was stuck. I had a dig around with a screwdriver and managed to get it undone but now when I turn it on the wattage starts increasing automatically like the button is stuck. The button seems find (clicking normally).

    I may have fucked it when playing about but I was only doing it to the tank as opposed to the bottom ha;f where the buttons are. I have removed everything but even when I just try using the bottom part without the tank, the same problem happens.

    Any of you lovely people know a fix?

    @BinaryBob101 what is the skinny on the sudden push over here to get vaping banned. Is it US related or something else?

    Further to that, is there any veracity to some of the claims and what are the more legitimate concerns regarding vaping activity in the body?

    Even without the coil. The mod still increases the wattage

    Picked up a Smok Stick v9 last Friday lunchtime. Haven't had a cigarette since \o/

    Can anyone recommend a larger tank, as 2ml just isn't cutting it and I'm having to refill it 4 times a day.

    Worth a watch following the recent rumblings in America.
