I've just registered to these boards wondering whether I should spring for my first vape. Does a vape hit like an e-cig? I've owned a V2 cig for a few months and I still cannot get over the drying-of-the-throat effect it has over me, occasionaly forcing uncontrollable bouts of coughing. In short, if a vape hits anything like an e-cig and it's liquid nicotine contents then a vaporizer is out of the picture. ---- I receive an inconsistent supply utilizing a glass bowl as the preferred method of intake: one ounce can last a month at six to seven bowls a day. ...would an ounce of the same potency last a month if it were puffed through a vape instead of a glass bowl? ---- Lastly, I've looked up magic box and thought it neat but I've been wondering if there were any other portable vapes out there requiring less set up/maintenance and made up of less replaceable (large) parts. Thanks for any input! bonus question when and why did you purchase your first vape?
