    Dude that video is awesome. Gotta start somewhere. It would be sweet if you could get a gopro helmet cam to get a POV shot of you running through the bush and what not. Sweet video though keep it up. Love to see other people killing it out there.

    Vaped some really nice Organic MK through the high and the M&M tech and then and ran a mile and a half followed by some heavy weight lifting.

    Needless to say, things are reallllllllly trippy right now.

    I train Brazilian jujitsu and Muay Thai, as well as mtn bike, surf, kayak ect and lift weights. The last couple years I started vaping pretty much exclusively when I got serious about training. Definitely big difference in the way my lungs feel and my cardio to when I smoke a bunch. Still like rolling spliffs though.

    Dude, I know this is an old post, but I wanted to let you know I checked out the article you were talking about (http://www.hightimes.com/read/stoner-smart-or-stoner-stupid) and thought it was well worth the read! It helps me, too. Got the Solo a few months back so I was a stupid stoner for a bit, but I'm coming around to the other side after killing my weed and skyrocketing my tolerance haha. Guess I was in a transitional phase, but I think the article really put the cap on seeing setting boundaries on my usage as a good thing. Also thought the whole backfiring of accidentally giving kids an outlet for their rebellious spirits held some insightful truth to it.

    As for the original thread topic, no I am not, but I want to be.

    Edit: Hey headees, you watch UFC? Love it. Have a bit of background in a mix of stuff (officially: wrestling, TKD; unofficially: BJJ, boxing) so I would love to get back into training.

    I gotta say it has helped me tremendously to be a more responsible user. I still feel a certain attachment to cannabis since it is weird for me not to indulge everyday, even if it is only after work.

    What i notice now, is that my usual pattern of vaporizing more when i'm more stressed and in the winter still maintains as it did when i vaped everyday and before that when i used to combust.

    I found that losing tobacco as allowed me not to feel stressed (over the lack of nicotine) when i couldn't vaporize and i could much more easily not vaporize for a while... before a temporary t-break was somewhat impossible for me since i didn't smoke tobacco alone.

    After i started night only vaporizing my tolerance went way down and my productivity and well being way up. Still, i realize the best time is really after work, after dinner is as not good for me because sometimes i tend to go to bed later because i want to vaporize a bit more.
    And then there is the obvious effect of cannabis in melatonin production, making you need to sleep more to achieve the same level of rest... but if you go to bed later, that means you sleep even less, considering you have a 9-to-5 job like i do.

    So, at the moment i am actually taking a small 2 week t-break as i need to be extra productive, and i need to maximize my time and vaporizing takes too much time and energy and that is not good.

    My advice to everyone is to evaluate everytime you're about to vaporize if it is a good decision in your current life situation and goals.

    I found out that for a long time i had become addicted and i was using cannabis as an escape rather than a reward.
    Some people don't need to do this of course, but i also realized that during the week and considering you have to work and other important things to do, a session after work is the perfect time.
    After dinner interferes with your sleep. You can always have the bigger sessions in the weekends when you have more time to rest.

    And daily usage is not entirely harm free even if you use little at a time. People should do t-breaks a few times a year, i'm going to start doing that too.
    If you're an active person who exercises and has good sleep and eating habits, a 2-week t break is great and not really difficult to do.

    Can you point to any studies on this. I always thought it was because it inhibited REM sleep.

    My tolerance is legendary around here and I've never taken an extended t-break in over 6 years, but then, I only vape after 8:00 at night (2 to 3 hits max) before going to bed at around 12. Also, I take a 2 day t-break every week, not a consecutive 2 days though.

    But we're all made up a bit differently. What works for me may not work for you.

    Yes, i'll have to find them but iirc it was because of the melatonin that it in turn affected REM sleep.

    And i was not talking of tolerance when i was mentioning t-breaks, about t-breaks i realize that if i stick to 1-2 sessions after work and a couple more after dinner, my consumption is stable and only subjected to other factors like the vaporizer i'm using the most or my stress levels.
    Although this change has been coupled with more meditation and exercise on my part, which i think also plays a part in tolerance levels and i know you also run a lot which also corroborates with this idea.

    The point in don't using after dinner is more because of your energy levels. In August i did a similar break although i would enjoy my vape sessions on weekends and i noticed that saturday morning my head was heavy than the rest of the work week.
    of course one has to take into account that at that time i would do bigger sessions on weekends and end up the night really high but still, i noticed a clear difference between mornings after vaping and mornings after not vaping.

    Me too.

    And gotcha on the melatonin. Didn't know that that was what was affecting REM.

    I have wrestled for most my life and I do a lot of running and weight lifting to go along with that. I vape before working out all the time. And before all types of workouts. Vaping before running is my favorite I have also joined the barefoot craze not 100% barefoot though my shoes have a slight heel to toe drop but I'm getting there.

    Vaping before wrestling can be awesome too. There is no truth to the lazy stoner stereotype I vape everyday even before really intense workouts and live wrestling practices. Wrestling is a real art form just like jiu jitsu and any other martial art once you have a good base of knowledge and the ability to string some moves together weed seems to enhance your focus.

    Anyone who is reading this that doesn't get high and work out... DO IT! You'll feel great afterwards
