Hemp Thread
« on: October 27, 2013, 01:51:30 PM »
We should have our own thread about this, right? 

As some of you know, I've been fucking with it lately.  Well, actually, I made a wick out of hemp fiber once last night and it works pretty good.

I bought the hemp fiber from Ebay because it was $6.50 shipped for a pretty decent sized bag. It says it's a cordage making kit or some shit.  Located HERE
The only other place I found it was at hemp warehouse/amazon and you had to buy a whole kilo of the shit for $15 and the shipping was another $15. 
2.3lbs is a lot of fucking fiber.
I don't know if what I got (just labeled 100% hemp fibers) is the same as the "100% degummed soft hemp fiber", but I would speculate that it is. I don't really care. It looks the same, though. 

I also have some 12-strand hemp yarn on the way. We'll see how that works. I bought 15ft of it like a faget on etsy for $5 shipped.

Anyway, back to the hemp fiber:

I boiled it for 40mins. 20mins/changed water/20mins. I boiled it in a stainless sauce pan and I put 3 stainless spoons on top of it to keep it submerged. Then I let it air dry overnight, spreading it out a bit as it dried.  I think it worked out pretty good.
It does look a bit lighter now after boiling it, but it may be my imagination.
My wife asked me if I was making a wig out of it. Then she told me to get my wig off her counter. Then she started picking it up and playing with it. I asked her if her hands were clean because I didn't want any weird flavors on my goddamn wick.
She said she'd had her hands down her pants all morning.  I lol'd.

It does look like a wig, though.







I simply cut a piece off with some scissors, twisted it up a bit, threaded it through a 1.2ohm 28g micro coil, trimmed it, and vaped it.

It tasted like hemp rope for an hour or two, but slowly subsided. Today it tastes ok. When I change to a fresh battery, I can taste it a little bit again.
I'm using it in a kayfun lite clone (russian 91) and it wicks pretty damn well.  I was pleasantly surprised. I like it better than silica, but I'd imagine it will burn pretty good if it goes dry. Surely not as bad or as nastily as cotton burns, though, I wouldn't think. 

This bag should last me a long damn time. 








I originally wanted to try hemp because I suspected that MAYBE silica was giving me a scratchy throat sometimes.
And I didn't really like the fact that I was always getting silica dust all over my hands and attys.

Is this any better for you? I don't fucking know. Do I look like a space ciggy wick scientist doctor?

i'll be interested in hearing your thoughts on the 12strand as opposed to the fiber. they are basically going back to a carto with the fiber on the rba/rdas.

About an hour after my last post in this thread, I put my nemesis in my pocket without the button locked.  lol....

Yeah, I don't know how long it fired, but the atty was pretty hot. I hit it and it tasted sorta like burning rubber. :D

I pushed through it like a man, though, and it tastes ok now.  I can't wait to see the wick.

Considering a "Vatic" is named after Vatic, I'd say Vatic.

Shit. I should do that tonight. I fucking forgot today when I put a new wick in. (which is really f'ing easy, btw. It takes like 2 minutes.)


As for the "burnt" wick.... it wasn't nearly as spectacular as I'd hoped. Just a black mark the width of the coil, and it really didn't look any different than any old wick before a dry burn.
Except this one was actually burnt. lol...


Cell pic didn't really work out.

I'm not even going to describe what I think that wick looks like in the first pic.  I might give a prize if you guess though.

A little bit of both, actually.  Ever since I left it firing in my pocket, it hadn't been quite as good as before.  I also sorta just wanted to mess with a shorter wick that went directly in the juice channel. I think it works better now.

I also tried cranking it up to 4.5V on my provari just for shits and giggles. I couldn't believe it fired. It fucking tasted good, too, but it was just too much.

I've noticed that I vaped a lot less today. Not by choice, either, I just can't keep hitting it like I used to. It's too much fucking nic. 
It sorta sucks because I like vaping at my desk and i can only take 4 or 5 hits before I don't want any more.
