This device is Absolutely revolutionary for the lighter using cannabis consumers of today... I don't smoke much flower these days, but when I do it will be with my newly discovered neo
I've evolved into an edible doser during the day but at night I find myself smoking a little for the extra headspace of the evening. Which is saying that I am not a heavy smoker by any means. But I found myself embarrassed by the smell of smoking, the unhealthiness of inhaling carbon and burnt gasses created guilt within me. I'm a medical patient and my health is a top priority so I knew I needed to change.
I bought the Neo foremost because it was the vape solution that allowed the most smoking-like experience. I could use my favorite glass with it and thus my same routines.
My initial impression of vaping with Neo was "is that it?" It was underwhelming, less of a high and virtually no vapor exhaled. (I had no experience with vaping at all at that time) I slowly eased into the use of Neo, experimented with the heat settings, different pipes, and as the weeks went on I felt the high was getting better. I had to learn that the vape high is slower, it builds like a wave rolling in. In retrospect I had to reset my brain from the expectation of the high impact, immediate, effects of smoking. It took a few weeks for me to transition to the new way.
Now I look forward to getting my glow on. Each session I expect to take some time, relaxing, listening to music while heating the Neo, loading the bowl, taking a few puffs and a pull then stirring and tamping, repeating three or four times. it's a pleasant ritual that is not to be had from the mainstream black box portable vapes. The orange glow is warm and inviting as it penetrates the glass bowl. This effect is a nice bonus, it feels warm and fuzzy like looking into a fireplace.
I'm still trying to find the right heat setting as it is easy to burn my bowl as the session progresses and everything heats up resulting in some whiffs of smoke along with vapor. Turning down the heat one notch half way through the session works well-four dots down to three.
I'd like to add that my Neo did fail to heat up one day after two months of use, so I emailed Prrl and they were on it pronto. I had a replacement unit within 3 days. Top customer service from Harvey with a handwritten note from Mark the CEO. The personal touch that is so hard to come by these days.
This thing is great for when I'm on the run, it hits the heat safety pretty quick imo, and I wish I had a bit more power, mave a dual 18650 setup for a little more aggressive heating, also I think it would be awesome to make it a 510 threaded mechanical mod attachment instead of sticking with the regulated mod but that might be too advanced for some users
Daily toker checking in, the Neo is a game changer. Honestly after using it I just don’t want to go back to combustion. I will say that it takes some practice to get used to the Neo, but once you nail it down you get clean, delicious rips everytime! No, you’re not gonna get whole milk hits, but you can get close to 2% 😬 I will also say that the bowl on the device is fairly fragile so be careful, buy the nice leather case Prrl sells, and always lay the device down when not in use. Also, Prrl has THE best customer service of any company I’ve ever (like seriously ever) dealt with. Shout out to Mark and the Prrl team!
Once you figure out not to pack the bud so hard but to still let some air go through, it's the best and cleanest solution out there. Very proper.
