THC is a bronchial irritant and if you overdo the vaping, you will definitely get a harsh throat. Also contrary to what some people in this thread are saying, the hot air can be harsh as well.
I want to buy a vaporizer because my lungs have become shit from the amount of weed I smoke. So I thought to save my lungs from cancer and reduce the amount of toxic shit going into my lungs a vaporizer would be a great plan. The Vapolution and vapor brother are the two im leaning towards so r these two choices good? Also, I heard that vaporizing is better for your lungs but is bad for your throat. Has anyone heard any truth to this or is it just not accurate.
I usually combat the harsh throat with a nice glass of some liquid in between puffs. Seems to do the trick. Something that coats the throat is mighty nice.
The vaporbro's is a good vape, but the vaporwarez is definitely better and last i checked, you can get it on ebay for about 120 shipped. You need to make absolutely certain that you'r vape is filtering out the solid particles. The whip style vaporizers tend to let bits of kif and plant matter slip around the screen and they end up in the walls of your lungs. Not fun if you are a daily vape user.
I've heard good things about the vapolution as well. Dont know if it has the same filtering problem, but by its design i dont think it would.
Vaping has saved my lungs. I still spark a bob every once in a while , but daily vaping is where its at.

I've been experimenting to find the right setting. I started with the dial set to around 12 oclock, let it heat up for 5 minutes, put the straw in and inhale. After about 20 seconds some vapor comes through the whip. But, the weed is not all that brown after one hit.
On the other extreme, I put the straw in and let it heat up for 5 minutes. Then when I drew on the whip, a lot of vapor came through and burned the shit out of my lungs. Ow! I had trouble breathing for an hour or so and my lungs are still sore.

Its not like the air coming out of the whip is THAT hot either...its warm, but not hot. its not like breathing in the air from a hair dryer or anything like that.

I got my vaporizer (a V-tower) about two months back and I have to say it has saved my me, my marriage and my health. Also, it's an awesome party-gadget :-) Everyone loves it. I say it's saved my marriage because I can now use ganja without stinking down the apartment, which I agree is not nice when you smoke. Vape doesn't smell anything. You could blow it in a policeman's face and he'd never know!
If your getting harsh vape (smoke) of your vaporizer you're probably vaping at too hot temperatures. THC starts evaporating at around 185 celcisus. To get a more couchy effect, set a slighty higher temperature. NEVER higher than 200 degrees though. Benzeen and other nasty shit starts evaporating to at those temperatures, and you don't want those.
So I can totally recommend the v-tower (only like 180 euros!). It's fast, easy to use and has a pretty accurate digital temperature gauge. You can also set the temperature exactly to your preference.
Peace, and happy vaping!

If you don't feel like buying one or you don't have/can't afford a bong then just go all macguyver style and use an empty plastic bottle. just run the tube from your whip into the bottle add some water and pop a 1/4 inch hole in the bottle for a carb it's the easiest homemade bong you'll ever make.

ps.. get the hands free model if you go vaporbros, very worth the extra 10 bucks or so
