    Yes, I vape. I was a long time heavy smoker, and ecigs absolutely helped me quit for good. Haven't had a "real" cig in 4 years. Yesterday was my 4 year anniversary smoke-free.

    Same for me. I smoked for 30 years and quit overnight switching to vaping. My 4 year mark comes up in June!

    Congrats! Isn't it nice to lose the cough and be able to breathe, taste and smell again? :)

    Good on ya!

    Quick comment about the timestamps on here - they seem to be way off. I made my first comment at around 5:00 PM CST yesterday, yet it displays as 9:40 PM. Could this be something I need to configure in my settings, or is the server somewhere in the Atlantic ocean? ;-)

    Yes sir. In your account settings you should be able to change your time-zone.

    I've gotten into Do it Yourself Ejuice. It's so much cheaper and I recommend looking into it if you vape a lot.

    I smoked for years as well. One year free from all nicotine. I never got into vaping.

    Super congrats to you! I don't think it was so much a nicotine thing for me as it was the hand/mouth habit. I smoked for 40 years, and just the physical habit was so hard to break. E-cigs eventually satisfied that habit. A 3-day hospital stay with bronchitis also helped the process of substitution along, if you know what I mean. ;)

    Absolutely, I just hope the FDA and "Big Tobacco" don't kill the vaping industry!

    The vape industry will never die. There will always be a source/people will make their own devices. the batteries are common amongst much more than ecigs and making your own e-juice is too easy if one were to learn how.

    Big Tobacco will be buying into the vape industry because the tobacco industry is going to die due to state "sin tax" taxation. When I started smoking, real cigs were $0.25 a pack. What are they now?

    They have been for a while. Notice more and more "cool sounding" gas station devices popping up that require little ejuice canisters (disposable) and being sold by Reynolds/Morris.

    Yep, Big Tobacco is banking on overseas cigarette sales and U.S. vaping.

    I do, I'll be 4 years without cigarettes this year. I got really big into vaping for a while, even started my own business selling them. That kind of flopped and I got to where I got tired of the "big cloud" thing, so I just use a very basic set up now but it works for me and is super cheap to run.

    Never smoked or vaped but this week I got a disposable vape pen with Hemp (CBD) oil. There is no nicotine, but hemp is used for medicinal purposes. I can't say it has done much for me but I might need a stronger oil.

    CBD will calm you down. Maybe stronger.. also.. you can buy the kind you put a few drops under your tounge like a vitamin. Those are best.

    Lifelong nonsmoker until I took up cigars at 40. Thanks to an ex-girlfriend. I smoke about 2-3 cigars a month, no cigs. I figure as a latestarter, I'll take up vaping when I'm 60.

    I've actually got some drops too from Charlotte's Web CBD. Pretty good stuff. The vape pen was from Kat's Natural's. They are based out of Tennessee.

    I just picked up a VOOPOO Drag mod. It's very nice for the price (around $50 online) and the Gene chip it uses competes with the DNA. ;) Very happy so far!

    How long have you been using a 2-18650's mod? Just curious. My latest is a Tarot mini.

    Way too long. I even used a 3 18650 mod or two, but they're bulky/annoying.

    I got this in the mail today. Took a couple puffs tonight and I gotta say I feel pretty good. It maybe be the placebo effect but it seems like I can feel a difference. It has kind of an earthy taste to it I guess. I guess it tastes like hemp. The last CBD vape I tried was orange flavored.

    What are you using it for? My father has diabetes and ive been looking at alternative treatments for him outside the realm of big pharma. Him and I have discussed his options and he’s ok with smoking weed but obviously that’s still illegal in Georgia. However, CBD oils are not as long as they don’t contain THC. From articles I’ve read it seems CBD is an excellent option for him to help him get cope with or even overcome this terrible disease. I just ordered the same kit you posted. How long did it take for it to arrive for you?

    I’m using it for overall stress control/anxiety. It only took a couple days to get here. CBD oil has many uses and I urge you to visit the Realm of Caring website were they have a ton of great info there and you can email them specific questions. You are corrrect that it is legal as long as it contains no THC. You can PM me if you have any questions and I’ll try to answer.

    You can still get full spectrum; half-way legally in regards to CBD.

    Anybody tried vaping actual CBD flower? You can buy it online. Looks like real weed and apparently smells like it too but they mail it in a mylar bag to conceal any smell. Since it is hemp it is legal. You get all the benefits of CBD but no THC so you aren't stoned. You can roll it and smoke it as a joint as well of course. It just seems a little risky but apparently so far no one has had any trouble with it.
