  1. I'll weight in, I suppose. Trimming is an art. I've only ever done it for myself and patients, but I hear it can be lucrative if you are skilled. I can do about 2 pounds in 8 hours, depending on how the plant was manicured.. I haven't met anyone faster yet. Hand placement is essential. One hand crawls up the branch as the other hand snips. Grab the base of the bud and pull it out so you can get a 360 angle cut on it. If your scissors make that, "snip" sound, you are probably doing it wrong. I Moreso "scrap" the leaves off and only snip for fan leaf stems. This means you have to have the perfect cure going on for the leaves to crisp off this way. Each bud should take less than 4 swipes. You should be averaging 3 and only doing 4 for the weird ones. Long motions with a beveled curve to your wrist means you never actually cut into the bud itself. That is why the expensive ones have curved blades. The concave part should face away from you. Start slow, like learning to play guitar. Waste ZERO motions. Slow down if you are taking 6 swipes. It may take some practice, but after you have the muscle memory down, you can shred buds into beautiful arrays like edward scissorhashhands.
  2. All those poisoned children that will now suffer for life over failed bureaucracy. Michigan is better than this!
  3. Products received! After a lengthy conversation with the VP of Atmos, in which I told him about angrily throwing the pen in the woods off my fishing vessel, and how regardless of what gifts he might send me, if they didn't work, I wouldn't lie. Guy sounded young, confident. Said, "WE GOT JUST THE THING!". I doubted it, but hey, I wasn't going to say no. I spent valuable energy hating these people. Got the package in the mail this morning. One thing Atmos does right is packaging. You feel cool just opening the black boxes with fancy letters. Ripped them open carelessly and screwed them into our spare battery absent minded. I was excited for the 501 adapter, it just looked so much better than the standard white ones that leak oil all over the bowl after awhile. After an entire day using these products, here is what I think: 501 Adapter (http://www.atmosrx.com/AtmosRX/510-RT-Cartridge-Plus/flypage.tpl.html) I was actually excited for this one when I saw the picture. The standard elements are pretty terrible for these pens. The standard white screw-in piece ends up leaking oil everywhere on the standard ones. This thing is actually pretty darn sweet. I was looking for something more permanent than buying those little white ones all the time. I cleaned this at the end of the night with Isoprophyl and dried it. Worked fine an hour later. Worth the $20, for sure. I am going to get a couple. If there are any like this you think might be better, I will buy and try them for your standard oil pen and see which I like best. Honestly, I don't see the point in buying the disposable ones. The taste was way better out of this little guy, it looks 900% less suspicious than the glass bulb caked in resin you have, too! Easy public vaping (with caution, obviously). The Atmos JUMP Kit - Gold I was actually really looking forward to continuing my smear campaign against Atmos. What is life without someone to tear into every once in awhile? RIght...? Anyone...? Immediately this thing takes 6 hours to charge. Not shocking. After an entire afternoon I unplugged it, smirked and loaded her up with dry herb. Wow. Very cool. The unit has this very sleek design and button. You press it three times, and bright red LED's reach into your brain and tell you, "not yet! NOT YET!". After only a few moments, the LED's turn bright green, signalling the user to take a chance. Initially, I was actually very happy. The unit gets WARM, but it is SO, SO small. Compared to $150-$300 walky-talky looking units, this thing definitely is what I pictured when I first ordered my pen from Atmos. Sleek and sexy, the first four or five pulls from the unit were as if I were taking them off a $250 table unit... but...maybe a tiny bit better? NONONONONO, no way. I hate these scum! Sending me some plastic piece of fancy crap, convincing me it was my fault, never trying to settle the score until they received some sort of Tyler Durden-esque email, detailing my plan to personally hurt their Christmas bonuses until I draw my last. ..But another pull definitely makes one wonder. The taste was incredible, the process was simple, the unit was small and sleek. I decided to test it out on some things a bit more 'alive'. The results, I hope, are something I am not the first to achieve. This unit does well with live-extracted vapor. I was impressed. OVERALL Atmos seems to be trying to turn the page on their brand. Initial selling point being sleek, stealthy and cool-looking, their initial units were glorified e-pipes that could barely handle either product you threw at it, coupled with poor design flaws that made the units look cheap. The customer service was present, but I feel like after 20 emails someone needed to cut the crap and either refund the product or send me something that works. I think that the reason why they are so reluctant is because so many of us are complacent, and do not try to fight back after getting f'ed over by pretty magazine pictures. The MMJ group is small and tight, doing bad business is bad for business. These two products I received, I would buy. For $60, this pen is really freaking cool. If you need something that will last all day, I'd buy a $300 dollar unit. For a half day out on the lake, going mushroom picking or just being out, the Jump is slick and cool. If Atmos changes their line up to actually vape/oil, and keep with the cool designs and sexy profiles, I'd buy a more expensive unit a couple years down the road when they really nail it down. Overall, if you are looking into Atmos, stay away from the older models. If you want a hiking pen or a sweet oil pen cartridge, check them out.
  4. UPDATE So after following grassmatch's advice as read above, realizing how cheap and easy it ended up being, I became irate. I might have possibly been intoxicated when I wrote a very inflammatory email to Atmos. Threats, anger, damning pictures and rhetoric, sent at three-something in the morning, and here I sit recently having spoken directly to the vice president of the company. They plan on sending me a couple products to ease my hurt-butt. We shall see. We shall see.

    Nice color!
  6. UPDATE! Testing the pen with shatter and wax yielded slightly more favorable results. If you like wasting large amounts of good material to get a slightly-better-than-a-hot-knife taste, Atmos is your pen. Did I mention I threw it away? It was causing me so much anger every time I looked at it. Live and learn.
  7. Must be nice to own property! Makes me want to sell mine and just build a tent on a couple acres. Start building a shanty and go from there!
  8. I finally got mine back with a working battery and charger. 100% piece of crap, 0/10 would not be fooled into buying again. Load it too tight, wont "vape", load it looser, suck hash and keif into mouth. When it does hit, it does it well 2 times. well worth 80$ and 40 emails.
  9. Felt like spreading the word. How lame. Didn't want anyone else going through what I did. You can get tried and tested pens for 120$
  10. Thanks. They are offering to replace the battery and give me a free charger after i bitched up a storm. Figure might as well. So much time wasted..
  11. http://www.atmosrx.com/AtmosRX/Thermo-DW-Kit-Black/flypage.tpl.html#psp2447 80$ all together after shipping. Totally worth it looks cool lying on the table. 80$ useless centerpiece!
  12. The problem is the piece of crap doesnt even really vape. It's like an e-pipe, so I'm not clammering to fix it. I was hugely disappointed before it died! I emailed them and their PR people told me the best thing to do was to send the battery in to get fixed, and spend more money on their website! Why didn't I think of that! Now, with my fancy 15% coupon I got ( wayyyy too generous of them, I know), I can go buy the &*(^&*^ charger that DOESN'T SHIP WITH THEIR STUPID E-PIPES!
  13. http://www.kindnessential.com/product-info.html 9k for the smallest one, wonder what the quality is? Does a pound of organic material an hour with a 30lb recovery tank. I'm guessing its this cheap because the system isn't contained like expensive ones, so your hoses and valves and stuff probably need to be cleaned pretty regularly. Not sure.
  14. Closed-loop co2 extraction is the common name.
  15. We have ones you can rent time on in Michigan? SERIOUSLY? I remember seeing a video for this so long ago and just forgetting completely about it! Soooo cool. Anyone have a spare 125k they don't need back for awhile? : D See, if we started a med bank we could charge dues and save up buy one and put it in our facility for members to use.
