MCIG: Here is the mCig

Good news:  My mCig just arrived

Bad news:  I really have no idea what to do with it!

Here it how the package looks:

The instructions on the back have misspellings and are missing some letters on the far right side, but they seem easy to follow:

  1. Insert dry leaf or wax after removing mouthpiece
  2. To operate, hold the black button

It also gave instructions on how to charge with the USB charger.

Here is the fully assembled mCig:  

I didn't measure it, but it's about 5 inches.

Here is just the mouthpiece, where the product is loaded:

The white mouthpiece pulls off easily and has a spring attached to it, with a piece of metal at the end.  This pushes the material towards the heat source.

Recharging is really easy - the longer part screws into the charger, and there is an LED that indicates when it is done.

To test functionality, I loaded a dried herb, and it certainly vaporized the plant matter.

  • Pot$tocker — PHOT up almost 15% today.! Woo Hoo!!! Posted 7 months ago
  • CavemanInvestor — So far so good for Alan's portfolio! If there was any doubt that we are still very early in Marijuana boom consider the delay in the movement of PHOT and other Cannabis stocks following the release of significant news. It can still take days for a stock to respond. Still very early. Still ground floor. This is fun! Posted 7 months ago
  • CavemanInvestor — Also interesting that cannabis stocks are not trading in lock-step today...could this be the beginning of a divergence or just a one day fluke? Posted 7 months ago
  • AlanBrochsteinCFA — Caveman, you are 100% right about the delayed reaction to real news. When something happens with Coca-Cola, the market reacts immediately. This is very inefficient. Hopefully, it will remain so for a long time so that we can capitalize Posted 7 months ago
  • CavemanInvestor — mcig seems "cool" for sure but it would be nice to know: a. if they have any special patent protection b. how much it costs to make and c. their estimates for customer acquisition costs per mcig purchase and their primary approach to customer acquisition. Posted 7 months ago
  • CavemanInvestor — To me the elephant in the room is the low cost of the mcig (which is great for buyers) and whether they can make any money at the end of the day Posted 7 months ago
  • Zach POT Player — I tried to order MCIG and wont let me Posted 7 months ago
  • CavemanInvestor — Most keywords in the space (e cigarettes, vaporizers, best vaporizers, etc.. are priced at $.50 - $1.50 per click. Assuming an agressive 5% conversion rate, mcig would be paying $50-$150 for 5 purchases. Posted 7 months ago
  • CavemanInvestor — And that doesn't include the cost to manufacture. Posted 7 months ago
  • CavemanInvestor — As a potential investor in mcig, I'd like to know these answers before I jump into this one. Posted 7 months ago
  • CavemanInvestor — Otherwise, it reminds me of the many internet plays where they spent $5 to make $1. Posted 7 months ago
  • CavemanInvestor — Just my 2 cents. Posted 7 months ago
  • AlanBrochsteinCFA — Yes, Caveman, we are on it! Zachary, it's not yet released for sale Posted 7 months ago
  • Zach POT Player — When will it be Posted 7 months ago
  • AlanBrochsteinCFA — Very soon, but I don't have the exact date Posted 7 months ago
  • Pot$tocker — where can I buy 1? If I type in 420Investor for the code, will I get a discount? Posted 7 months ago
  • AlanBrochsteinCFA — I like that idea, but if you need a discount off of $10, well... Posted 7 months ago
  • Pot$tocker — Here is why MCIG won't work....its too small, its a one-hitter. Here is why MCIG will work, @ $10 each you can buy 10 and have a pocket full of $10 disposables, that might work. Posted 7 months ago
  • AlanBrochsteinCFA — I think that this is just version one, but who knows. There is an elegant simplicity to a one-trick pony, but, like you said, it would be too small. So, stay tuned, and we'll get the full scoop Posted 7 months ago
  • Zach POT Player — I dont think its a one hitter Posted 7 months ago
  • Zach POT Player — its just a small amount of weed or what ever but not a one hitter Posted 7 months ago
  • AlanBrochsteinCFA — I found out that my box was part of a batched run - that's why it was turned into a sample. Also, Paul shared that there will be a second-generation product to follow. I will be having an extensive dialogue with him shortly, most likely in the format of the PHOT interview Posted 7 months ago
  • Pot$tocker — I have spent over $1,000 on vaporizers alone over the years. Always want to try the latest and greatest. Very small amount of weed. Im guessing .25g of weed or .10g of wax (similar to other pen vapes) I have owned 4 different pen vapes, 3 found the trash can. The way I smoke its barely a 1 hitter. Refilling them is a pain in the neck. very messy and not discreet to refill. Posted 7 months ago
  • Pot$tocker — even the one i kept is a pain to refill but it worked the best. Posted 7 months ago
  • Pot$tocker — Cannacig couldn't even make it thru the weekend with me. It was in the trash can by Sunday morning. Posted 7 months ago

Alan Brochstein

Before I became the leading “Cannabis Financial Analyst” in the marijuana industry, I spent numerous years on the inside of the investment industry as a portfolio manager.

Prior to earning my CFA charter in 1997, I worked in NYC for Kidder, Peabody, & Co. in bonds from 1986 to 1992. Later in 1992, I joined First Boston’s investment management subsidiary before becoming a portfolio manager with Criterion Investment Management in 1994 —co-managing $10 billion in fixed-income investments. In 2000, I made the move to stocks, joining a small firm in Houston as an analyst and portfolio manager. I remained at the firm until 2006, when I left to form my own business, AB Analytical Services—working as a research consultant for several investment advisors.

In 2008, I began offering a model portfolio service to individual investors ( And in 2009, I had the pleasure of working with an independent research firm that focused on evaluating the management teams of publicly-traded companies. I created The Analytical Trader in 2013—a service focused on providing swing trading ideas which offered a 4:1 reward/risk ratio over a two-week timeframe.

After seeing a strong need for more investor transparency among cannabis companies in early 2014, I launched the 420 Investor— a service committed to providing real-time, objective information about the top marijuana companies in the market.

In the process of launching the 420 Investor, I became a much-needed ally to marijuana investors, being hailed as one of the top “Cannabis Financial Analysts” in the industry.

My philosophy is simple: I believe that when people have access to ideas based on sound processes and backed by decades of experience, they can manage their own money and still have a market-beating performance. It’s my goal to provide exactly this type of know-how to investors everywhere.
