OC v3pro didn't achieve full extraction with sticky bud

Took my v3pro down the beach yesterday and it was the first time I've tried packing it with a stickier bud. Perhaps I packed it a little too much because the very middle was still greenish despite pumping it up to max temp for an extended period. Looks like the heat didn't penetrate that much. And it wasn't hitting as well as I know it can.

I've had some good results with packing drier herb but next time I'll definitely be careful not to overfill with stickier bud.

As a comparison I packed my mighty plus same bud and it browned the whole lot no issue and hit just as well as any other time I've used it. I guess that's why you pay a premium so it's no criticism of the v3pro, just a learning curve I guess.

In hindsight I should have stirred the bowl with the stirrer that's attached the the mouthpiece... d'oh!

Air flow is key with vaporization. Grind it, pack it loosely, and stir after the 'first round' starts to vape a bit thin. Refill after the second round, as needed. One may also wish to increase temp on the second round. I've been using 170C and 185C for the first and second round, respectively.

Thanks. I am definitely learning to pack more loosely.

I'm a reddifuggee, and tried to load up a white paper from Vriptech to (https://kbin.social/m/dryherbvapes/microblog). The paper is located at (https://archive.org/details/SVTaroma), as I couldn't find it online elsewhere. It's from 2003, and has some useful info for vape friends. I'm making mention, because I've not been here long, and am still figuring out how it all works. LMK if you can access the document, if you would. :)
