    I don't ever roll joints for myself. I only vape during my private time, and try my hardest to turn social sessions into vape sessions... However, I'm just not the type of person to say no when someone offers me their cannabis. I know it'd probably be healthier for me if I didn't combust at all, but personally it would feel impolite to turn down someone who wants to share their ganja with me.

    Y'all who mix tobacco and bud; why? It's more efficient to hold your hit. Do you do that also with tobacco in the mix? Is it a taste thing?

    I've seen many mix hash in their joints in Holland. Seemed like they were already used to smoking hand-rolled cigs so they just toss some hash crumbles on top.

    When I used to do this back at university it was just to conserve weed. My friends and I smoked cigarettes then too, so nobody minded it really.

    It's just how it happens in uk and some of Europe...
    Street weed can be very expensive here...
    As little as 0.5 for 10 UK pounds....

    As a kid, who can afford to smoke pure...???
    Cigarettes are nearly weed prices now too here...
    £10 for 20.....

    Yet you can order harmfull or deadly, synthetic cannabis online for basically fuck all monies...
    And they wonder why all the kids are on it...

    Money aside, I could never get on with smoking pure weed joints...
    It was just way too harsh for me...
    I tried many time with many strains...
    I just didnt enjoy it....

    Maybe it does all stem back from the days in the uk before flowers came about...
    All we had was shitty soap bar hash...
    You cant smoke that pure in a joint...

    So dont look down on us for doing It, it's wasnt our fault......
    We had to do it.....

    No diss intended, @kellya86. Just curious. I remember hash being a lot cheaper than bud in Amsterdam. Never tried the Space Cake.

    Once I asked about shrooms in a hash cafe there. I was asked to leave and not return...

    Are you supposed to call them truffles instead?

    I don't know what the magic words are. ;) Anything other than bud or hash was considered "hard drugs"...

    Well, they actually are truffles and not fruiting bodies of mushrooms so that's probably why.

    Pretty sure mushrooms may still be illegal there and the truffles are just a loophole. (or simply classified differently despite both forms containing psilocin)

    Personally, I'd opt for peyote over truffles anyday if I was in Amsterdam.

    Peyote in Amsterdam?!? I'm surprised. I did see it sold in Tokyo as a house plant.

    The "truffles" are just dried mushrooms in vacuum packs. They are horrible tasting! I physically couldn't eat them! Really wanted to but....

    What Drexicya said, and if you dont like the taste you can always make yourself a lemon tek.. and spare yourself the stomach drama ,it's tons better than consuming directly even for caps..https://www.zamnesia.com/blog-the-lemon-tek-for-a-faster-trip-n232
    Truffles seems to have a wider chemical composition than caps.. i found them to be far more aggressive in terms of body high compared to caps.. Really fresh truffels taste ok and they can stay fresh for two months if you let them breath and keep them refrigerated.. cause they are alive and hibernating. The shit in NL tastes like ass because they vacuum seal them,and they get sore as hell :).. In reality there only 3-4 magic strains that form truffles but you will see that they are branded and sold as 20 different brands.. Marketing always makes things worse..
    Anyway.. if you looking for some fun time in Amsterdam i suggest that you threat yourself with some Mad Honey, it is really cool and very much like eating mj edibles but has something really absinth like in the colour of the experience.. :))

    Rolled a joint yesterday (with 10 vapes in my cabinet) for a bit of a one-day road trip to see a friend.

    Powdered up a couple of dabs of shatter to go into it.

    It was actually very delightful. Brought most of it back home and smoked it prior to bedtime. I vape for pain and sedation and have to say that joint knocked me out the right way.

    Still, I vape for overall health reasons and joints and the like will remain an occasional novelty.

    I have not been able to handle joints for years due to several sinus surgeries.
    It has been so long, I don't particularly enjoy anything about the taste or smell of combustion.

    BUT I CANNOT STOP LOOKING AT ALL THESE BEAUTIFUL TWAXED OUT JOINTS AND I WANT SOME OF THE ACTION.

    I may break down next week and grab a couple.

    This. Even though I find combusting to be a bit disgusting... spitting on the generousity of friends is far more disgusting! :)

    Besides... they don't know that I take small hits and mouth them often instead of inhaling... and what they don't know won't hurt them! :D

    Nope, no combustion no more. Quit tobacco end of December '16; in March '17, nurse had me blow in a tube to check carbon monoxide levels & they were still sky-high. She thought I was still smoking & lying, but what I knew was I had a few one-hitters with coffee before my appointment. So I hopped on the interwebs to find that smoking cannabis causes MORE carbon monoxide poisoning than tobacco! Mainly because the way one holds the smoke in with cannabis. Now I knew I had to quit smoking cannabis as well to get properly clean. I stumbled upon FC, discovered interesting intelligent people that had successfully accomplished what I wanted to do and what's more: they were nice and happy to teach and share. When I kept learning more benefits of vaporization, it was like "where have you been all my life?" What a waste combustion is... Never again.

    I get free top shelf cone joints and regular joints every time i go to the dispensary. I typically keep the top shelf joints and give the regular joints to my buddies. But lately, I cant even smoke these joints. Its been 3 weeks since i last smoked flowers. I hated the taste, harsh and hot smoke and the fact it didnt get me very stoned.

    Now i have like a dozen joints in my draw i figured i will save for something or make a buddy happy one day. I only stopped combustion completely in June 2017 with the occasional joint. maybe like 4 since June 2017. the only thing i miss about flowers is the smell of nice buds.

    Now I am trying to convert my friends and family to do the same and give up combustion.

    I started vaping around 2013 and never really stopped smoking joints. I've made a couple posts in this thread about it. How joints feel wrong, because the weed is getting overcooked, but still enjoyable and with the amount of pain relief that followed it always seemed worth it. Fast forward to this summer where I traveled around and smoked a lot of joints in the process.

    In one weekend alone I smoked 23.5 joints pretty much to myself. My throat was so sore by the end of it that I had a cough for a couple days, I felt physically exhausted when I went to the gym, and I never really want to smoke joints again.

    I vape every day and never feel any problem with throat or cough or physical exhaustion the next day. But the thing is, prior to 2013 I used to smoke every day and felt the same, no sore throat or cough. I will stick to vaping and now I've got to get a new portable so I don't wreck my throat on the go.

    Would it be impolite to turn down a piece of cake if you were diabetic? or a drink if you were alcoholic? the carbon monoxide is poison, & the combustion tar will suffocate the user (i watched my grandfather die a slow death from emphysema) its a quality of life issue, its not about being polite. Its a great opportunity to share about vaporizing if people are curious, but to each their own. Keep in mind that if you combust at all you will not get the most out of vaporizing. I am a firm believer in abstinence of combustion to make the most of your herb. Whats with all the spit swapping anyway? most people don't share their beer or wine, why their joint, or pipe? kinda gross really
