“The Dirty Dabber” has introduced me to a new product by Connoisseur Concentrates called, “The Solution”. S1ingBlade and I have been making thes vape pens for a couple years using “PEG”. But now but with the “terpine” product by Connoisseur Concentrates, the pens are SOO much better; twice as potent, in fact. They taste great; no more P E G after taste.
If you’ve never made pens at all, you should try it. They are easy to make and oh so convenient. Once you use one, you’ll leave your messy shatter vape at home. Practically odorless, we can take them on board the plane in our carry on luggage. They look no different than e-cigs.
Before, we were using polyethylene glycol to dissolve the shatter. The pens worked great, however, we had to use too much PEG and the pens were weak. Using the real terpins from Connoisseur Concentrates, these pens still aren’t like a full on “dab” hit, but at least you won’t have to carry your chemistry set around with you. Pull this discrete pen out of your pocket at halftime, a few good hits, and you’ll be satisfied.
I’ve created a full tutorial for you here. Hope you enjoy:
Thanks Capn! I’m gonna try this.
Very Informative! much appreciated Capn. As a bit of a n00b grower you have been an amazing place to turn to for informative and descriptive grow/cannabis information. If there was a way to trade value for value please let me know.
Does anyone know of any issues inhaling terpenes?
Sup Cap?! Great write up. That stuff is hella expensive! However, I do see a little going a long way as a selling point. BTW we need more articles from you! Check out my growers question on my GG scrog. I’d love to hear your thoughts.
I am having trouble finding the empty cartridges online. you said you get them on ebay? for $2.50 a pop? help!
Thank you for information. Your are a great teacher! That looked like a blunt needle in video used in some medical systems. Often 18 gauge needles are used to draw up meds. Thanks again! Nurse Dan
Where or where has the Capn gone. Best part of this site and his page is gone
Capn!!!! Been following your method for a while on 420mag and took a hiatus for a little while only to find you doing expert sh-t over here!!! Had a question for you about this:
How/where do you store your cartridges after you fill them?? Do you just keep them in a cool, dark place??
Cap- seriously. You gotta start writing some articles! I’m jonesin’ for that knowledge you drop. Hoping nothing bad has happened.
Does anyone know if this method (specifically using Terpenes) can be used with something that isn’t BHO based? Can dry pollen or bubble hash be used instead? Thanks!

I know I’m far from the capt but in my opinion, no, that would not be good glass to buy for distilling.
It’s chiner glass which means it is most likely very low quality and has some residuals from the machining process. China doesn’t have very good quality control on stuff like this. They see what the Americans are doing and wanting and they make it for a fraction of the price with sub par materials.
Have you ever distilled before?
If not I would recommend against it, unless you really know what you’re doing.
I have been following these instructions but using rosin instead of shatter or distillation. It works perfectly, you just have to account for the viscosity of the rosin and add less terpenes then you would for shatter.
It’s usually around 1/4g of terpenes to every gram of rosin but error on the side of caution and start with an 1/8 gr terpenes and add more if needed.
Also con. Concentrates is shit. Get any other kind of terpene that’s not made by those assholes.
For all of you looking for empty vape carts, I have a whole load of them coming in from China. I have been doing copious research to find the best manufacturers and newest tech. We will have a web store up soon with all of our packaging options! Stay tuned for more info.
Nodnarb and Guud0000, unless you are buying hand blown glass or scientific glass from some very specific manufacturers all of your glass is made in China. There are only a few glass plants left in the US and they mostly make auto glass. There are some really fantastic Chinese glass manufacturers that are making quality glass for distillation purposes. While that glass may be cheap, it can be used to distill effectively… it just won’t survive many uses. As long as the glass doesn’t go above 650 F it should be perfectly fine to distill out of. I would clean the glass with iso to remove any leftover coatings from the manufacturing process. All glass is sprayed with a coating to prevent scratches and scuffing during the shipping process. More than likely the glass will be very thin and after 4 or 5 uses the heat expansion and contraction will cause your round bottom flasks to crack and cause a mess.
If you are looking for high quality distillation glass, look at http://www.dwk-lifesciences.com/
Duran Wheaton Kimble produce some of the highest quality scientific glass that you can buy. I believe that their glass plant is in Turkey.
