Vaporizing 101

Alternate Title ⋆ Nothing's As Easy As It Looks. 
Information for anyone interested in vaporizing, but who, haven't got a clue about Vaporizers. 

Arizer V-Tower Vaporizer



Vaporizer (Inhalation Device)

I'll start with the (short version) then, anyone who has the interest or the time to read it can scroll down to my synopsis at the bottom of this post and enjoy my entire story and the many new, great links I found.

My HUD housing; $95 a month rent, apartment building went smoke free.

No one told me until a new manager was hired. Then; she threatened to evict me, even though smoking was allowed, five years ago when I moved in. They changed the rules. Apparently they're allowed to do this, or not?

In the end, I didn't get evicted.

I complied with their demand to not smoke on the property. Now; my Landlord, knows me personally, not just by reputation, joining the crowd, of those who love me. Of course, some others don't.

I went to Court. I gave the Building Owner a copy of the paid receipt for my vaporizer. We shook hands and building manager, even gave me a ride home.

Owner; coincidentally, also happens to be a Lawyer. (So convenient). I recognized him from around the buildings, town and the manager called him "Counselor".

It took a lot of effort, finding a vaporizer that works with loose tobacco and then figuring out, how to use it correctly (all in the middle of a hot as heck summer and an eviction threat drama), but I did it. I finally succeeded!

I wrote and gave the Building Owner: an 8 page statement about why they had no case legally. But, the owners had me at, smoking is a big fire hazard.

I live around mostly very elderly senior citizens who would be impossibly hard to evacuate.

Yeah; I wasn't touching this one, for sure.

I do not want to set any kind of legal precedent that people can smoke. Or not smoke, either.

But I did help set one precedent. One, that recognizes vaporizing as being allowed in all non-smoking residences. Even in Federally assisted, HUD Housing (where I live).

That's what is says on the legal paper the building owner and I signed. That vaporizing is allowed. So that's good.

For example; Medical Marijuana, Patients, cannot be refused permission to consume it, as it's a medicine.
But, building owners can prohibit smoking it.

I'm a Fireman's Daughter.

I hate cigarettes, I hate the ashes that fly all over the place.

I was starting to feel like Cinderella here.

I hated worrying all the time if I was setting the place on fire.

What I Learned

After over five months of researching; housing law, vaporizers, vaporizer pens, talking to, getting to know vaporizer retailers, having watched at least 20 video reviews, tutorials, read websites, warranties, guarantees, purchased and returned three pens, read numerous reviews and much more.

I found out that not all vaporizers are suitable for tobacco.

ie, The pens, are really made to use with cannabis and other light density herbs.

From my experience, the dry herb pens work, ok, for a light smoker. A person who smokes five to 10 cigarettes a day. (Like someone who wants to step out in a work situation and grab a quick 15-20 puffs, and doesn't want to smell like cigarettes afterward, who doesn't have the time, or want to smoke an entire cigarette). Besides cannabis, this is another use for the vaporizer pens.

Dry herb vaporizer pens will not work well for someone who constantly needs tobacco/nicotine vapor on demand, people who smoke a pack and a half a day.

Vaporizer pens usually run on batteries. The batteries stay charged, aprox one hour. More expensive pens have a battery charge of 3 hours.

Battery charge is  not long enough for a heavy, pack a day plus smoker. They all take 4 to 5 hours to re-charge and one has to press a button every time they want a couple of puffs.

They say the charge lasts for 1,000 puffs. That's with cannabis or the e-juice.

Not my experience with tobacco.


First of all; anyone wanting to vaporize should discuss it with their Doctor. Have a physical etc.

Especially with the liquid (e-juice) vaporizers.

For nicotine, the e-juice pens are the easiest to use but have caused allergic reactions to some people.

Because the e-juice liquid has glycerine and alcohol in it.

I can't use e-cigs or e-juice vaporizer pens because I'm seriously allergic to glycerine (I get boils). Good thing I didn't try them.

I don't even drink. I had my gallbladder removed in 2003 and am very allergic to any kind of alcohol and have many food allergies too.

There are lots of good, cheaper vaporizer pens for just cannabis. Almost any one will work with marijuana. Some of the less expensive dry herb pens, are really going to mostly combust the herb. That's ok too. At least there's no toxic paper and way less smell. 

I finally purchased, the Arizer V-Tower Vaporizer.

Arizer V-Tower Review The Daily Smoker-Amsterdam 2014(c)

The only cleaner I use is 2 broken up denture tablets. Cheap, and non toxic. No alcohol or chemicals. Other cleaners have isopropyl alcohol in them. I'm allergic. Wouldn't use that anyway.

I use hot water in a large food type container.

*You have to keep those little screens that fit in the elbow adapter (glass part on top) clean or you won't get any puffs.

Once in a while I use brillo to clean the bowl screens.

I scrape them with a paper clip. Then, I used the corner of a  piece of paper towel and kept twisting it in until all the gunk came off on it.

If the elbow screens aren't kept clean, no puffs can get through. If you can see light through the screen, it's ok. Not seeing anything, it needs cleaning.

Ignore the other screens in the herb bowl. Just cleaning solution works on them. I wouldn't even try to take them out.

I have 3 of the hoses with elbow adapters. They have to be cleaned all the time, I always have one soaking and drying.

I use two a day.  Switch,  after about 10 hours use.

If one is using the vaporizer for tobacco. It will get gunked up.

After cleaning I always soak the glass parts; in a couple of cap fulls of lemon juice and water, for about an hour. Works good, makes it taste nice and gets rid of any soapy, cleaner taste.

Vaporizing 411

For Medical Marijuana

Start Temperature 440f. Place bowl with herb, about 1/3 full on heating element. Let heat for about 30 seconds and puff.

Take a few puffs and lower the temperature down to 430f,  stir.

When visible vapor puffs stop, stir and more puffs and stir, till there's no more vapor.

Repeat and continue-until no more puffs. Up to 100 puffs per joint counted.

Vaporizing cannabis is easy. Grind the herb like for a joint, put in bowl, let heat for 1 minute and puff, big clouds of vapor (depending on how much cannabis you put in).

Tobacco has to be very dry-don't grind. Put about 1/2 bowl fill. Wait about 1 minute and puff. Vaporizes at about 445f.

Should get about 20 puffs. Stir occasionally and empty bowl scrape elbow screen with stirrer and refill.

Important; check your sellers warranties and return policies.

Read Instruction Manuel.

With the Arizer V Tower, There's an air vent at the bottom of the V Tower. Do Not Block The Air Flow.

For instance. Don't put the vaporizer on a tablecloth. I had that problem.

Puffing ever so slightly pulled the tablecloth over the air vent. I got rid of tablecloth and now I get good puffs.


Cloth pot holders

The glass bowl and adapter get hot. Too hot to touch. But not flammable. Still it will melt plastic.

Box anti-bacterial denture cleaner tablets

Large plastic food containers to soak and clean whip hoses, etc. $1/99 cent store.

A bottle of lemon juice.

The only tobacco I found that works is the "American Spirit Original Blend", powder blue package. It's a medium-light tobacco. Heavier tobaccos were too hard to vaporize.


It had gotten to the point that it became a choice between food and cigarettes anyway.

Food was winning.

Then my building going smoke free, pushed cigarettes way to the back of the line.

I'm sick of the smoke, the smell, the carcinogens, the whole thing.

Now I'm smoke free and I am; once again, the winner!

So now; I've been re-programmed as a non-smoker. (I still get my nicotine. I just vaporize it).

I could have Stockholm syndrome too. I get that a lot.

It worked out for me. I've been trying to quit smoking cigarettes for at least the past 20 years.

I buy a canister of American Spirit loose tobacco, for $32.95.

Compared to a carton of cigarettes that costs $58. Total of about $85 a week.

The canister should last at least a month or longer. It's over 5 1/4 ounces. 

I save; over $4,000 a year, vaporizing loose tobacco vs smoking factory manufactured cigarettes. Good reason to vaporize. 

There are a lot of discussion out there about smoking (combusting) cannabis, or vaporizing it?

IMO vaporizing it is better.

Vaporizing with tobacco, it's kind of like using an enclosed pipe. (Vaporizer review videos; showing people getting huge clouds of smoke, is, because they're smoking cannabis, not tobacco).

But, vaporizing with cannabis is what vaporizers were really meant for.

Vaporizers release significantly more  Cannabinoids from the marijuana without the need for combustion and without the waste, that comes with burning.

Combusted smoke contains up to 88% non-cannabinoid material where vaped weed is made up of 95% cannabinoids.

You get much more puffs vaporizing rather than combusitng cannabis. 75% more puffs. With combustion, you burn the herb. It's gone.

Vaporizing works like a convection oven. The heat; releases the oils, into a vapor.

With convection the vapor stays in the vaporizer hose, until you draw/puff on it.

In a vaporizer with heat control. You set the chamber for the amount of vapor you want by adjusting the temperature.

Also; you don't get lethargic, weak and the high is elevated to a stronger level.

I don't know if I'm doing it correctly or not, I usually, get good vapor at 445f with tobacco. About 430f for cannabis or other herbs.

I put it on a paper plate.


My HUD housing complex went smoke free. I moved in with smoking allowed. Now I've been told I am no longer allowed to smoke in the apt and on the property.

So, I had a building manager inspecting every couple of weeks. Every time; she would say; "I smell smoke, if I smell smoke the next time I'm here, I'm going to evict you."

I was like, "what"???

Well they did it, the Sheriff was at my door! Showed up on a fri night, at 5:30pm.

The property manager had given me a notice to quit 30 days previously.

My advice to anyone If a landlord gives you a "Notice To Quit", that's the 30 day notice of eviction

Lawyer up immediately!

In 30 days the Sheriff will be at your door with an eviction notice, then you'll have aprox 3 or 4 days to bring or overnight mail the court a completed form, called a "ticket to appear" which says you'll be at the hearing.

Also the landlord could file any place in the state he owns property. ie 60 miles away.

 So; besides returning the ticket to appear to the Court you could also have to send, what's called a "change of venue" request to be able to go to the Court in your immediate area. (mail overnight guaranteed mail $20 US Post Office, return receipt required).

If you don't return these forms to the court by the date on the summons, they will come and padlock your apartment, throw you out immediately and you'll have to fight to get your possessions.

You also; have to send your landlord copies of these forms, certified mail, return receipt requested too.

Oh yeah the forms are not included with the summons.

Always; in any legal situation, just get a Lawyer immediately.

Tricky part they pulled on me was, they filed in a town, 40 miles away.

I had a Seniors Lawyer, recommended by my local Seniors Center. They are a 501 funding is low and they are very busy. So she could only advise me and mediate a little. This was an easy case since I was complying. Not just as fast as property management wanted me to.

This Lawyer sent me the forms and talked the Senior Center Lady through showing me how to fill them out and send them.

It's not whether one knows they have a winning case or not, it's the technicalities of the law, that are, what trips one up.

You got to have a Lawyer! Unless you can't get a Lawyer, never pro se (do it yourself) a case.

Old saying; "He who acts as his own Lawyer, has a fool for a client."

It all started here;

Updated Is There A Lawyer In The House??? With a side addendum here You Can't Judge A Book By Looking At The Cover.

I also Googled quite a few "how to stop smoking" websites.

I heard that people who start vaporizing often are able to stop smoking tobacco completely.

I feel much better already.

Smoking is dirty and passe'.

Not having to worry; if I'm burning the apartment down when I go out, or to sleep at night, is "Priceless!"


Buying a vaporizer is a little investment up front, but saves a lot in the long run.

The V Tower works fabulously, with the tobacco.

Jonathan; at Vapor Nation Customer service, said sometimes it takes people a couple of days to learn how to use it.

I've got it working now. I'm, starting to get good puffs now. Secret is very dry tobacco. I don't even grind mine. Just break it up with my hand. Also important that, the elbow adapter and it's screen are kept clean.

I don't know if vaporizing would satisfy every tobacco user. I only smoked ultra-light cigarettes and they, were too strong for me. I couldn't breath half the time.

It took me a month or two in order to stop craving the other many chemicals in factory manufactured cigarettes.

I wanted to share this with everyone.

I also wanted to share this, honest vaporizer company. All the salespeople are so nice and helpful. We've become friends. I message them any questions I had and they always have the answer.

So; I wrote this for myself and to pass it along; to anyone who might have a need, or want to vaporize.

★★★★★Vapor Nation, Great Sales, Good Warranty.

A really cool company out in California. I got 20% off V Tower so it only cost $119.99 and had free shipping. I also got 5 free gifts.

Arizer is a good product. With Vapor Nations 20% off Summer Sale, V Tower kept me from getting evicted.

I would definitely purchase an extra Arizer Whip Kit $22.99. To keep one clean and use one.

Get a couple of spare Arizer whips.

They whips w/elbow adapter, alone are only $14.99 with always, 10% to 20% off and (free shipping). You'll need to have a clean one and so important, an extra elbow adapter.

The whip comes with the elbow adapter attached. Don't take it off.

I broke an adapter, trying to remove it. Only remove the round screen for cleaning. Turn the screen like a screw until it loosens up.

If the V Tower is used with tobacco, the whip/hose is going to get stained. Nothing will get rid of it. So no point in removing the elbow adapter to clean.

The elbow adapter is the only truly fragile glass part. Unless you drop the others on a stone floor or something.

Anyone interested should call VaporNation and ask questions. They will be happy to answer them.

What a task, finding a vaporizer that works with tobacco!

Now, I see what I've been inhaling all these years!

Apparently; they can, change change the rules. The wording in my lease; is like "double talk", so I figured it, could mean anything.

I listened to my friends who are way smarter than I when they said comply and vaporize. That fighting would be too much work.  That, Smokers don't get any sympathy.

Now; after having researched cigarette smoke and the poisons in it and not smoking for almost 2 years,
I do understand why non-smokers, (people with children, etc), don't want to be around cigarette smoke.

Since I no longer smoke, I can see the difference in the air in my apartment. It was a toxic cloud of cigarette smoke 24/7.

I do feel sorry for anyone who smokes.

It's a terrible, expensive, poisonous habit.

But vaporizing works.

I found the hardest part was kicking the chemicals contained in the factory made cigarettes.

With the vaporizer one only gets the nicotine.

Good and Plenty candy and red licorice helped me kick the factory cigarettes chemicals.

Now I'm fine with the vaporizer and wouldn't smoke a manufactured cigarette if they paid me.

They make me nauseous and dizzy, now that I realize, why I was always so nauseous and dizzy when I smoked.

California's Central Valley 450 miles from north-northwest to south-southeast, inland from and parallel to the Pacific Ocean coast. It covers approximately 22,500 square miles, about 13.7% of California's total land area (slightly smaller than the state of West Virginia), and is home to some of California's most productive agricultural areas.

Common sense dictates that gas fracking, and its promoters, are totally Crazy! chemicals used in hydraulic fracturing

Central Valley
Yahoo Education Reference Encyclopedia 

Great trough of central Calif, c.450 mi (720 km) long and c.50 mi (80 km) wide, between the Sierra Nevada and the Coast Ranges.

The Sacramento and San Joaquin rivers drain most of the valley before converging in a huge delta and flowing into San Francisco Bay; the delta is California's leading truck-farming and horticultural area. 

The Central Valley is California's agricultural heartland, although its urban and suburban areas have expanded dramatically since the 1970s. With its long growing season and fertile soil, the valley has the largest single concentration of fruit and nut farms and vineyards in the United States; cotton, grain, and vegetables are also grown.

I just wanted to share my experiences and some good advice about swimming safety.

I keep reading in the news about young people drowning. So I wrote this for everyone, everywhere.

Rip Tides (current)

An extremely strong channel of water flowing seaward from near the shore (see photos), through the surf line. National Weather Service-Rip Current Safety

Typical flow is at 0.5 metres per second (1–2 feet per second), and can be as fast as 2.5 metres per second (8 feet per second).

Rip Current

Rip Current Identification

I grew up in Bayonne and Southern New Jersey (Brick Town. About 20 miles from Seaside Heights Boardwalk) and spent every summer swimming in its ocean and occasionally in its lakes. But mostly in the ocean.

I've swam at beaches, from Point Pleasant to Atlantic City.

The ocean is not a place for an inexperienced swimmer, no matter how calm it looks.

If caught in an outgoing tide; or rip tide, Don't Try To Swim In To The Shore. SWIM SIDEWAYS FROM ONE SIDE OF THE BEACH TO THE OTHER. Rip tides are sudden and are only in parts of the water.

Don't panic. If you swim sideways you will swim out of the rip tide affected water. It's impossible to fight the tide and try to swim in. It will just keep pulling you out further.

The ocean may look beautiful, inviting and fun, but it can also be very dangerous for anyone who is not a strong swimmer. If you don't swim really good. Swim in the motel pool and stay in the shallow end. Pools can be dangerous too.

Never Mix Alcohol/Drugs With Activities Near, Or In The Water!
Never Swim or Boat When Intoxicated!

Safe Boating

Always wear a life jacket-(swim vest), if you are not an experienced swimmer and always when boating.

Children's Swim Vests

Adult's Swim Vests
(I have no interests in these above companies. I just wanted to provide some links where economical swim vests were available).

Use caution when swimming in lakes, rivers, streams and generally everywhere. Riverbeds, streams etc, often contain tree roots and other debris that a swimmer can get caught on. 

The fresh water, unlike the salt water of the ocean, doesn't provide any buoyancy which helps you to float .

Buoyancy Salt Water vs. Fresh Water
by Chris Sullivan
Also, the mud bottoms can pull one down.

Always wear a bathing suit when swimming (or at the most, cotton shorts and a tee shirt). Do Not wear heavy clothing, like jeans. You'll sink like a stone!

When in a desperate situation in the water you do not need an extra 8 pounds (aprox weight of a wet pair of jeans) pulling you down!

I learned how to swim by age five using a swim/life vest. I still almost drowned in a lake, once when I was a teenager.

I was just wading and stepped into a drop (also called a dip). The next thing I knew, I was over my head and going down.

I was wearing jeans and they became heavy as lead and were pulling me under and that was it!

Luckily I had the time to tear them off and then I managed to struggle back up to the surface.

At the time I was surrounded by people close enough to almost touch me. But apparently no one saw me go under.

I am a most experienced swimmer. If I can almost drown, anyone can!


Never jump into unfamiliar water. As well as never dive into unfamiliar water.

One never knows how deep the water is, local and current tide strength, whether it's full of large rocks and other hazards that one can hit.

New Jersey Division of Consumer Affairs US Consumer Product Safety Commission's top 10 tips to stay safe around the pool or spa article by-Jonathan Lin The Jersey Journal May 21, 2015

Never leave a child unattended in or near a pool or spa and always watch your children closely around all bodies of water.

Designate a Water Watcher to supervise children in the pool or spa.

This person should not be reading, texting, using a smart phone or be otherwise distracted. Adults can take turns being a Water Watcher.

Teach children basic water safety tips.
If a child is missing, look for him or her in the pool or spa first.
Keep children away from pool drains, pipes and other openings to avoid entrapments.
Ensure any pool and spa you use has drain covers that comply with federal standards, and, if you do not know, ask your pool service provider whether your covers are in compliance.
Learn how to swim and teach your child how to swim.
Learn how to perform CPR on children and adults, and update those skills regularly.
Install a four-foot or taller fence around the perimeter of the pool and spa and use self-closing and self-latching gates; ask your neighbors to do the same at their pools.
Install and use a lockable safety cover on your spa.
Have lifesaving equipment such as life rings, floats or a reaching pole available and easily accessible.

The following are NJDCA's additional safety tips for beaches, lakes and rivers:

At beaches, lakes and rivers, make sure your children swim only in areas designated for swimming.
Don't let children dive into natural bodies of water; open water may have currents, undertow and hidden hazards under the surface.
Always make sure your child wears a life jacket approved by the US Coast Guard, when riding in a boat. Wear one yourself, for your own safety and to set a good example.
Avoid alcohol consumption when boating or swimming.
Ensure your boat's safety by taking advantage of free "Vessel Safety Checks" offered by the U.S. Coast Guard Auxiliary and United States Power Squadrons.

The CPSC's Pool Safely campaign provides information on the simple steps that parents, caregivers, and pool owners should take to ensure that children and adults stay safer in and around pools and spas.

The CPSC invites everyone to visit to take the pledge to help reduce drownings in the United States.

Stay Safe Everyone!
