    I just did this, and it provides a very aware perception after waking up. Never combined the two in the past xD

    Try Lemon ginger blast on breakfast or some green juices and then vape... This is the real boost... it adds energy to you... caffeine just juices out your day powers in few hours..messing with your dopamine levels and heart rate resulting in more "fuel burnt" and more power lost..
    I try not mix healthy with unhealthy.. :) especially vape and unhealthy stuff.. My sense get so on the edge sometimes when vaked .. that i can sense the aspartam in the chewing gum causing me brain cancer :) ... Some would say that this is probably my mind game... and i get paranoid cause of pot and imagine things.. but it probably will be someone who lives a unhealthy life and had never tasted the true powers of nature ... a whole lot of guys like that around here.
    As for caffeine and pot.. It might feel good ... but it will probably make you a total crap especially on empty stomack.. Also when caffeine wears off and you start to feel sleepy... + the pot hunger and lowered sugar and blood pressure.. so if i have to go to work for example... and i start at 7 with vape + coffee ,, at lunch time i will feel like a total crap... just in the middle of my working day.. and i will have to drink 2 more coffees to juice out the my body sponge a bit more..

    I cmbine it often, the taste goes together very well, but I'm almost immune to caffeine's effects, I drink coffee for it's taste only. only if I drink 2 or more double espresso's I start to notice an effect, but I've only drank that much a few times, and never together with vapor. only 1-2 cups of coffee combined with vapor and with that I feel only the vapor

    i do this in the mornings sometimes, yes i like it. the vape helps to iron out the jittery feeling of too much caffeine (least for me) so i can handle more amounts of it and essentially get more done.

    I combine the two daily and am doing great. :p
    I do do roast my own beans,know how to make coffee and i don't overdose on it either. ;)
    Some nice nutty,fruity Ethiopian Yrgacheffe or a nice chocholately Indonesian Java(Blawan est.) goes extremely well with a few nice vapes,trust me!

    I work early AM shifts like 4am and I always used to drink coffee and vape before but like Abysmal said I would always get lightheaded and tired at about 8oclock. Now I still vape most days but instead of coffee I either have water and a snack or usually just a yerba matte with honey and cream(best coffee replacement IMO!) And I always feel good now, also a little breakfast usually gives a lot of energy, even just a few eggs. I try hard not to drink coffee now because I do start to notice long term sideffects only if I get used to drinking it every morning, but I LOVE the taste.

    As with everything,there are pro's and cons(for a quick reference with some other links see a wikipage on it http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Health_effects_of_coffee: ,mmm the insert/edit link-button doesn't work : edit : make that it's an obsolete relic perhaps,because a hyperlink is shown as such automatically?).
    Given it's the most commonly used drug,any possible negative effects seem to be felt to be outweighed by the positive(which in my case includes sheer sensory enjoyment).;)

    I prersonaly don't like coffee. Ginseng, bubble, and green tea is what I fuck. Goes great with vaping imo. That said I can see why some people like it due to the caffeine keeping you up and about so if you have a massive vape session your not just couch locked lamping for the next 3-4 hours looking like this guy :ko:.

    Congrats on the discovery GhostHunter, Coffee=awesome, Herb=awesome, coffee+herb=the best.

    My local cooperative actually had some mj infused coffee for a little while...I liked it, but I see why they don't carry it anymore, wasn't super effective. It was good coffee though roasted locally, and had a nice little chill effect on the caffeine, good way to relax and stay functional.

    I don't generally drink much coffee (I'm more of a tea man) but lately I've been having the odd bit of cold-brewed coffee. It involves brewing coffee in cold water in a glass container over a long period of time - overnight or longer. Typically I'll make several days' worth at a time in a large glass bottle.

    It's not the best thing for caffeine junkies, as it gets only about 1/3 of the caffeine that hot brewing does, but it is very rich in flavour, and low in bitterness, and I find that it doesn't really give me the jitttery after-effects I tend to get from regular coffee. Though when I make it, I like to make it super strong (and flavoursome), so it's probably close to being as caffeinated as regular coffee anyway. But it still doesn't make me jittery.

    Mind you, cold brewing is particularly good for iced coffee, and is often made for this purpose.

    you drink that coldbrewed coffee cold I suppose?
    and it doesn't taste like cooled down hotbrewed coffee? (once coffee gets so cold that you can take big sips of itwithout burning is when I don't like the taste anymore, except if cmbined with weed, made madeinfused coffee once and that stayed tasty even when cold)

    sounds like an interesting method, since I only drink coffee for it's taste, not very sensitive to caffeine so usually I notice nothing of the caffeine. also only drink one cup in the afternoon(morning takes too much time, wich is better spent on making breakfast since that will actually wake me up while coffee just tastes nice but won't do anything to get me awake)
    is the taste as strong as 'regular' coffee? since you say you're more of a teadrinker, but I don't like tea since I think the taste isn't strong enough, even tried sucking directly on a teabag once. for that same reason I also only drink my coffee black

    Wow man, that sounds almost like the equivalent of vaporizing instead of combustion....Then you can dry out the grounds and repackage as ABV! :)

    Seriously, my girlfriend is a iced coffee junkie, and I will have to tell her about this - she will love it. It makes sense too, because cold-pressed oils (and stuff like that) are usually purer than their heated counterparts.

    Actually, I usually reheat it. But yeah sometimes cold too.

    No it doesn't taste like cooled down hot brew coffee.

    It doesn't have the acidity, and tastes sweeter, smoother and richer. Some people don't like it and say it tastes like instant coffee, and while I'd agree that it does have some similar qualities, I also find it to have a much more classy, nuanced flavour.

    Strength is dependent on how much coffee you brew with, as with hot brew. Certain harsh elements of the flavour are greatly reduced (including caffeine), so it will taste weaker (and be less psychoactive) for the same amount of grounds. But by brewing it extra extra strong you can drink it at whatever strength you prefer. Watering it down later is easy enough, whereas making weak coffee strong is a lot more of a challenge. But yeah, cold brew coffee isn't quite so budget friendly.

    Yeah, kind of. We don't actually ever burn coffee (at least not intentionally, but you do cut down on a bit of crap. Though unfortunately you don't double your yield from your beans as you do with vapes.

    An iced coffee junkie and cold brewing - that sounds like a dangerous mix. :uhoh: Heh but if you search around on the net you'll soon find better information on cold brew coffee than I could give you. Here's the Wikipedia entry on it as a starting point:

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cold_brew_coffee


    And that page has a link to some good instructions:

    For me Caffeine and vaping usually only go together when I am suffering from a caffeine induced headache. Caffeine makes me feel really weird and I get headaches if I consume what most consider a regular amount. Vaping helps get rid of those headaches, but avoiding caffiene works better :)

    I drink two cups of coffee in the morning and that's it for me for the day. I remember when I worked in an office 9-5 I did feel the need for coffee through the afternoon to keep me going but otherwise just the morning coffee and it doesn't occur to me to have a cup otherwise. (I think I've been to Starbucks once or twice in my life - I never understood the fascination).

    That said, if during a vaping session with other people, if coffee is suggested by someone I will have a cup as well, and I enjoy it. For me it does sharpen my mind. The combo might be useful if I'm doing something creative while vaked. I find coffee and MJ and nice blend. Red wine and MJ is also a nice blend. I have a very nice Merlot from Chile, inexpensive and very delicious. It's called "Papi." 2009 is sublime if you can find it. 2010 is slightly less fruity tasting but still delicious. One year can make a huge difference in the aging of a wine.

    I love drinking tea while vaping. It's very soothing and feels healthful and beneficial. For a while I was drinking what's called "dream herb" as a tea. The "dream herb" I purchased from arenaethnobotanicals was very palatable. I replenished from a different source, bouncing bear botanicals because they were having a sale and the taste is exactly as is described by others across the net as "vile." So for the moment I have given up on this herb but I found an herb tea that I like even better. It's delicious and supposedly improves brain function. It's called Gotu Kola.

    ^no problems with sleepiness from the alcohol in the wine?

    I usually don't drink often, mostly only when going out, and even then usually just one or a few beers. but for my birthday I got a nice 8-pack of guiness from a friend, so I had one nice cold beer on some nights, and I noticed a pattern: every night I drank a beer I would fall asleep(with tv etc still on) a few hours after the beer(2 hours or so I guess)
    this also happens sometimes without any alcohol when I'm a bit tired or sleepy, but in this case it was during a vacation, was well rested everyday, and just relaxing all day, nothing tiring
    hile that one beer was too less to feel anything from the alcohol, buit it just happened so consistently while on the nights without a beer it didn't happen, that it had to be the beer

    but maybe that's just with beer, in that article 'the entourage effect' they also mention a terpene wich is present in hops(and so in beer), wich gives a more relaxing/sedating effect together with thc

    It's all a matter of degree; I find two glasses of a nice fruity Merlot very agreeable through a session and I don't experience any sleepiness aside from wanting to eventually fall asleep at night which I would experience anyway. The next day there's no residual effect.
    But if I down a full bottle, which I've done, yes, I'd be a little wiped the next day, but not much. I guess everybody's different in that respect. Two glasses at room temperature sipped is perfect though.

    Not a huge beer drinker although once in a while I'll enjoy a cold one. Something about beer and parades causes me to have an aversion to beer. You ever notice people who march in parades tend to like beer?
