    I was surfing the net and saw an ad for some Electronic Cigarettes. On Wikipedia it said that this could be used with weed. Basically the E-Cig is a little cigarette looking thing that has nicotine cartridges to help you stop smoking. It heats it up and sends water vapor that contains nicotine into your mouth. So like a mini vaporizer. They're like 50 bucks but I want to know how it would be used for marijuana.

    Well, this has been an interesting bit of research.

    As you can see here, the e-cig is a pretty complicated little device, but it does contain a liquid chamber and a "vaporizer". This heats up and vaporizes the nicotine/cigarette simulating liquid. Theoretically, you could put bud in there if it's heating up to the correct temperature, which unfortunately does not seem to be the case.

    From the FAQ:

    These guys have awful English and could really use a native speaker to go over their site but it appears that they are heating the liquid far more than would be needed or ideal for bud.

    So it may be a no go. Does anyone have one to test?

    That is a very interesting little device. I dont smoke cigarettes, but I love the act of smoking. This could be my ticket to mouth occupation.

    All your base are belong to us!!!

    I think it would be too much trouble to use with weed, especially being unable to clean it. There are other cheap vaporization methods that would at least be better then that.

    I had a feeling this would drift offtopic.

    Please keep in mind the rules. Other drugs are only referenced with marijuana! Strictly talk of tobacco is bad. Lets try not to do that :)

    This is the threads one and only friendly warning.

    Waiting for someone to actually try it with said material to see if actually works and maybe give a small review of thier experience before investing in yet another vape.

    The basic view is this will not easily work or it will not work long as the atomizer will clog up and stop working.

    Search on other sites and you will find where people have looked into it far more.

    The E-Joint

    I've seen the idea kicked around on a few forums, using the electronic cigarettes as a portable personal vaporizer. Well ladies and gents, it's possible. This initial experiment was simply topping my cartridge up with some kief. The Rudbull Flavored Nicotine juice comes through mostly, with the taste of kief underlying it. I'm vaping and getting my nic/thc fix at the same time. Next I'll make an alcohol and glycerin based tincture, as both of these are used in regular e juice. I'll add some flavorings to the mix and have a way to vape where ever I go! Let me know your thoughts.

    Two of my friends have e-cigs. They use them also as a vape. Its really nice too because whenever we go places i remind them to bring em so we can vape on the go.

    By PG I'm assuming you mean propylene glycol (a relatively nontoxic solvent used in lots of extracts and ECigs). I'm not a chemist (so correct me if I'm wrong), but the solubility of a substance depends on the polarity. THC contains non-polar molecules, and PG is a polar solvent. Therefore, THC is unfortunately not soluble in propylene glycol.

    Also, the atomizer (heating element) in most ECigs peaks around 180 degrees Fahrenheit, which is not high enough to vaporize THC.

    Its an interesting idea, and I've thrown around the idea before, but its gotten shot down several times. Placing keif on the nicotine cartridge is probably just causing a placebo effect.
