First get one of these crappy vaporizers off ebay for like less than $35. These vaporizers are crap because the vapors stick to the glass thus wasting it. Whatever vapors u do manage to get tastes like plastic because of the tube. The shit sticks to the tube too so u know it's a waste. Anyhow, cop one of these and take it apart so it looks like this: And viola, u got your heating source. The tip gets very hot fast in about a minute. Next take ur favorite all glass piece: And load the bowl. Make sure that shit's shredded and u have a screen. You must have a screen or else u will just suck it through! Don't load too much, go for small runs. Holding the heating element to your bowl. Control how fast it bakes by holding the heating element closer to the bowl or inhaling faster. Sometimes it will actually catch the bowl on fire which is no good. You will get the hang of it and will soon get mad vapors. You will get more stoned with less weed than with the volcano. I have the volcano and it's a waste compared to this. My shit lasts 2x as long. Just bake it until it's nice and black. I have pounds of this black shit. Between hits, I move and crush the herb some more while it's in the bowl. This exposes more of the bud to the heat source for the next hit. Because the shit get all dust like, I put 3 more screens in the down tube to catch all the dust. The first two screens (in the top circle) are regular size screen and the last screen (the bottom circle) is a fine screen from the volcano. See how the top of the downstem has collected all the dust while the bottom past the fine screen is nice and clear? The regular screen is on the left and the fine screen is on the right. Look at how my bong stays a clear white. The downstem past the fine screen is a little yellow due to vapor collection. If I were to use this bong for smoking, it'd be black and full of sticky black resin. Hmmm..imagine ur lungs. But with vaporzing, everything looks a lot cleaner! Hands down this beats any vaporizer on the market today. It is by far the cheapest and easiest method. I have the volcano and u have to load a bigger bowl and u don't get as stoned with the volcano. U have to wait for the volcano to heat up, fill the bag, then take ur hits. With this, u just heat it up then take ur hits. U don't have to buy bags or any of the other OVERPRICED storz and bickel stuff. Oh did i mention the volcano costed me $500 and broke down and costed me $80 plus $20 shipping to fix?
