    In Australia in the region I first combusted it was the standard for everyone I knew who consumed to smoke a 50/50 mix. The reasons I mixed and was introduced to mixing when I started was the moisture content and price of the newly introduced expensive commercial 'HYDRO' which most often was very moist and fresh. We roasted our cigs to help with the burning characteristics of the wet hydro and the heavy Leb blonde hash that was around for a few years, unfortunately me and my friends we got addicted to tobacco at the same time looking back in hindsight :mental::puke: It's crazy to see that American youth are starting to take up this stupid practice WTF. I used to point out to my friends how Americans are superior stoners in that they are not stupid enough to contaminate their herb with an addictive poison.

    No, I'll pass. I'm not desperate to get high or conform just to "fit in."

    I think it's important to vary consumption methods. I still use ingestion and combustion in addition to vaporization, though vaporization is by far what I use the most.

    The flavor and effects are much different with combustion, and I get much different effects. I also like glass :)

    I feel it's important to change up the delivery method so your tolerance doesn't become too high with just one.

    the rolled ups with weed/hash and tobacco are actually called spliffs not blunts.
    blunts are like joints, pure weed with the difference is that they are hollowed up cigars filled up with pure weed.

    I also used to smoke spliffs - for all my friends this is still the defacto way of consuming weed.
    Used to be hooked up to glass pipes after a trip in the US, really enjoyed the flavor and the whole culture around it - pack another bowl, bitch! .
    But the tar on my teeth made me disliking it . also used to make me cough sometimes.

    After moving to vape, i still went through periods of smoking some spliffs here and there for many reasons that are probably boring to mention.

    starting from PAX then to MFLB then to PLENTY, then SOLO and still having some cravings here an there. After moving to vapcap my cravings for spliffs have gone really down.
    Last times I've tried to smoke a spliff i almost got sick half way through smoking it.
    Also experienced heavy panic attacks .
    Although I get really stoned with vaping when I try a spliff something else is making me really fucked up.
    In some situations my brain is looking for this getting completely fucked up mood but I try to avoid it because it doesn't feel good.
    I really think vaping is the best way to consume weed and using a vaporizer like vapcap you keep some of the smoking rituals/experience.
    Don't think I will easily go back to a battery/power based vaporizer, it feels even more weird right now after going out at my balcony with my lighter and my ti woody for a sesh

    I tried to get many people to switch from smoking spliffs with tobacco to vaping but without success. Everybody is so addicted to tobacco that they won't quit that easy.

    I also think that the nicotine is even harder to quite than coke. I mean coke is also so expensive that I just couldn't afford it after a while where you can always buy cheap tobacco.
    I find funny the joke that says that tobacco is the revenge of the native Americans

    I roll joints for friends sometimes but I don't combust at all, it's vaping or nothing. Vape bonging a lot currently and I was only a joint smoker, never got into smoking bowls.

    I'm glad to say the taste of combustion turns my stomach now and I smoked for over 20 years.

    I smoke from time to time. Probably less than once a month.

    If my roommate is tired of vaping, he will load a bowl in one of the bongs. It immediately gets cleaned after the sesh.

    If I'm fishing, there's a good chance someone with me brought a j or two (including me, I hate interrupting my casts to vape). Last time I smoked was over a month ago.

    It's called VAS= vape acquisition syndrome... you get multiple vapes for those different multiple effects... vaping keeps my tolerance high so smoking really has hardly no effects at all...

    If you're still destroying with fire and also vaporizing, one is TRULY NOT vaporizing. :razz: One must be free from carbon, after that combustion tastes like an ashtray and does not really medicate or effect the person anymore. I dare anyone to go pure... It's worth the plunge! :smug: You need to be pure from smoke to reach vaporizing bliss. So in short, HELL NO! :tup::rockon:

    Maybe the heat is getting to me too, caus I don't quite get what your saying...

    Are you saying vaping in the heat is bad..???
    So you went back to smoking..???

    Consuming cannabis dehydrates you, anyway you choose to consume it..
    At that to 35 degrees, and it's not always too pleasant getting high in the heat....

    I drink alot of water... done 5.5 litres yesterday...
    I also choose to vape through water more in the heat....

    Sometimes even some icey cool water...
    I know the science behind condensation, I know I lose some actives... But it's negligible and I don't care...

    Being high in the sun if fine as long as you
    keep cool and hydrated.....

    so far we have found that vaporizing equates somewhat to a fireman going into a burning building breathing hot dry air... that is one of the only harms I have heard of from vaping and a glass of water to hydrate with and a bubbler/bong/ etc to vape through fixes the problem.... with a bubbler you need to condition the vapor to be more moist and less dry

    some people also add ultrasonic mist makers to their rig so they drop it in to the bong and that brings you 99% humidity, you cant get dehydrated from that.

    In addition to herring, sardines, gouda and salmon, sea salt is pretty good smoked.

    But joints, too wasteful and inefficient. Even pre-vape days I was a bongster and dugout one hitter.

    For those with throat irritation from vaping, try a cough drop (in your mouth while drawing).
    Anything mentholated or eucalyptus is soothing, although it covers up the taste of cannabis.

    Same here. Joints work better with a partner(s). When alone I tended to space out after a couple hits and it would just keep burning...

    So, I know this is about joints, but I had to chime in on combustion. I purchased a glass bong recently to pair with my Solo. So, it has been at least 10 months since I last combusted. The bong came with a bowl, so I thought, what the hell,, ya know? Decided to take an old school bong rip tonight. Holy effing monkey balls...the taste was gut wrenching. I cannot get the disgusting burnt taste out of my mouth. It is so deep in my lungs. It felt so horrible and hot and I immediate started to violently cough. I have been a user of mj for over 27 years. I only switched to vaping less than a year ago. WTF was that? I don't ever remember reacting like this before. Yuck & done. Never again. Pass.

    I had the same reaction when I first smoked a bowl after switching to vapor for a while. It really shocked me at the time. I've heard the same from countless people on this forum. As much as we all like to disagree about stuff on FC, the one thing we all seem to agree about is that returning to combustion after a vapor-only diet for a while seems to give us all the same reaction. :puke:.

    :peace:

    I cannot bring myself to smoke a joint. I have since I began vaping and I just won't do it again. :2c:

    I still enjoy traditions hashes (a lot), and the social 'sharing/passing' of a joint in groups or with a buddy. So, YES, I do still indulge since vaping bud... but at least now it's sans tobacco ;)
