I won’t get paid for this in any way, I’m sure.  I already get preferential treatment because I have been a good customer and I was very open about this being the best.  That’s the first disclaimer.

 

I use marijuana legally.  I have a degenerative disease.  CBDs aren’t very effective for me, THC is.  It helps the oxycodone (Percocet, I now find is the name of use for pharmacists) ameliorate–not kill–the pain.

 

Vapexhale was a startup by someone from the tech world.  When I read the initial description prior to production I knew it would work, and better than anything I’d had or examined.  I was indeed correct.  Initially it was $500 for base (the Evo itself, the heat-exchange mechanism and tubing that allows passage for air), wire containers for ground marijuana and a simple mouthpiece.  Initially they were also more fragile than they are now.

 

It’s about $319 for the Evo and then everything else is extra although I’m sure there are recurrent specials (as right now) inclusive of containers–for both marijuana and concentrate–and some sort of mouthpiece.  The newest addition to the collection is “the whip” which is nearly a must-have.  The unit is very light, and the addition of the water-pipe type ‘mouthpieces’ (very intricate blown glass water pipes that go above the unit; see vapexhale’s website and yes that’s one of my rare links and directly thereto) or even the standard ones can be perilous if carelessly left on; using the ‘whip’ actually steadies it and also greatly conserves concentrates.  I advise buying a water-pipe addon or else the whip and actually the latter; the smoke is very concentrated (especially from the oil concentrate, and no that doesn’t directly follow) and doesn’t involve a lot of loss.

 

First and foremost as far as marijuana goes, it’s a vaporizer, which means you can avoid smoking things that don’t accomplish the desired effect.  I somewhat prefer a Proto pipe (the guy who makes them decided not to do it anymore; he’s dead…) but I still do use the screen containers when I’m coughing a lot.  If you merely smoke pot* recreationally it might not be worth it, although it’s many times more efficient than (for instance a Proto) old-time pot-pipes of various types.  If you’re going to spend $200+, go for this.  This is based on experience from the time the company started; they celebrate their 4-year anniversary–NOW.  If you’re interested, please use the link and go there.  Unless you decide to somehow mention my name for some reason [which is Glenn Charles] they won’t even know your visit’s connected with me.   I am going to tell them about it because they may wish me to modify this post in some way.

 

I’m not financially connected with them in any way.  I don’t believe they’re anything but a private company although I intend to check. (I invest in OTC, which is a company that handles among other things stocks for marijuana-oriented companies; I never have given investment advice before but I will on this; it’s not long out of the “penny stock” region and rapidly climbing.  Get on that train while it’s still $30; when I bought it in March it was $19.80 a share; 3 months later it was 22.45; $30.20 now.  Don’t get OTCRocket or the companies it spotlights from what I’ve seen, incidentally.  If you decide to research one of “their” companies don’t just use their information, that’s exactly as wise as slavishly following the opinions of Motley Fool.  It isn’t. Sorry about the long parenthetical soliloquy, I do try to avoid them.  I’ve watched OTC since it was in the $11 range as I recall.)

 

I also am not otherwise financially connected with OTC and I don’t have much currently invested with them.  I also just don’t presume and won’t to give financial advice.  As a great for instance; I have a 2012 Chevrolet Suburban (LT as in 4 wheel drive; I wanted a 4 wheel drive van but they have unit bodies) and I would definitely advise anyone in the market not to buy a new one although I love mine.  They’ve gone to unit bodies rather than full frames.  If I had it to do over again I’d go for the lower gas mileage and a last-century Suburban completely rebuilt, preferably one from no newer than the early 90s.  After 2015 Suburbans went to unit bodies–folded metal used in place of a frame, and much more fragile and difficult to repair.  If I didn’t go that route I’d certainly buy something less expensive, since they’re up to around $70k this year, I understand.  I drive a Saturn Aura XR (look up the stats) which is an excellent car, and I would–definitely advise against buying one.  I am more an example of what to avoid than one to follow.

 

Nonetheless, if you can legally use marijuana in your state–I strongly do advise checking out my choice on the Evo.  I included the advice-against to allow the reader some balancing, or appreciation of my ‘honesty’.

 

I am not in any way advising someone to break federal law or local law in using marijuana.  Since I have reason to believe certain parties are yet interested in my writing, this disclaimer was utterly necessary, sorry about that.

Finally! someone recognizes lethal skunk’s, well, lethal qualities

In a recent announcement Jacqui Smith, the Home Secretary for the Brits, put weed back up there.  For us United States types this would be exactly like an upgrade from class C to class B felony; parole instead of probation, no right to bear (okay, so there ain’t no such right in England, and I ain’t a-commentin’), vote or…never mind.  Let’s hope Bush doesn’t follow suit.  You know this comes from her college days, don’t you? “Dude, that weed was lethal!”  Oh well.  I suppose she didn’t inhale.

At least we can soon expect not to get stoned off our medical marijuana

Wow.  What a medical advance.  They’ve adapted a pesticide to give us the same pain relief as from pot–much more expensive, don’t worry–and best of all, the drug companies get to make a profit.  Wow.  They could even make growing pot at home illegal…that’s right, they already did.  In fact–in technical fact–there is a revolution going on.  That something should be federally illegal, not illegal in a state, and not generally enforced is something the government doesn’t want noticed.
