The E-Cig thing is not really expensive, once you get over the initial cost. They have come down in price quite a bit. You can get a full starter kit for about $50 now. If you go the DIY route like me, it basically costs me about $2 per month to smoke. Compare that to $50-60 for a carton of regular smokes!!! Even if you buy all of your e-juice, it should only be about $30-40 a month (at the absolute highest).
As far as adding THC to an e-cig, I have heard of a couple of people doing it. One used BHO (Butane Honey Oil), and the other said he was able to extract THC from his buds using straight PG (Propylene glycol), which is the foundation for all the e-juice (you can use VG or PEG as well). As soon as I have a batch worth trying (maybe in Feb), I will give it a go. If I can make it work, you can believe there will be a mass posting on here.
My assumption is that the atomizer does not get hot enough to vaporize all the THC. I do, however, have a battery mod that I made that can up the voltage on them from 3.7volts to 6volts. This should be able to get past the heat issue. More to follow....
