    ...per session or are all of your sessions spontaneous? I've kinda settled into the following:

    2 hits from my LSV (either through transfer wand or bong filled with very warm water)
    10 to 20 minutes later...a booster hit from my MFLB
    60 to 90 minutes later...a shot of Jameson on the rocks or neat.

    That's my one nightly session.

    That sounds like a nice night session..

    I would say that I am more spontaneous.. If I have it, and I feel like it, I vape it.. Once I'm baked, I finish the bowl I'm on, and that's it.. Until the next one.. I've been sippin on some Glenlivet 12 lately, and I really enjoy it w/ some vapor.

    Yeah, my favorites are Balvenie Doublewood and the Macallan 12's (love the sherry undertones), but I just can't afford those on a nightly basis.

    When I feel the need to medicate, I just take my Lotus off it's pouch, scoop some 0.05g of pre ground herb from my small space case container and either finish the load with a couple of monster hits if I am in a hurry or take a few more shorter ones but still high heat and enjoy the rideā€¦ Usually that's enough and I might even finish it in two sessions if the herbs are strong. If it's a weak strain, I might need two or three bowls to get me there. A very fast and simple routine. No glass, no mess, not much cleaning! :smug:

    Thanks for the recommendations.. I am just starting out on single malt, and I can't really afford it either.. I just decided to treat myself to a bottle, after only trying it a few times w/ those little shot size bottles..

    Yeah, gives those a try. They age the scotch in sherry barrels for a bit. Adds a whole other dimension to the taste and smell. I REALLY like it. The Glenlivet 12's have more of a citrus thing going on while the Jameson has more of a floral thing going on.

    That first sip of scotch after vaping for a bit just makes my taste buds go absolutely nuts. :p

    Yeah, I love the flavors, but I can't really say they taste like 'this' or 'that' yet.. I still need to try other kinds.. I love the Glenlivet so I'm a little nervous to spend the money on something I might not like as much.. A while back I went and intended to try a bottle of Glenlivet 12, I ended up deciding to go w/ some bourbon at the last sec.. LOL I wish I didn't.. It was Eagle Rare, and I had read something about how it is amazing for its price range.. It was good, but I guess I just don't like sippin bourbon.. I couldn't appreciate it.. I don't usually spend very much on alcohol, so appreciating alcohol that isn't shitty is kind of new to me LOL.

    hi Iwien, do you use that same weed for the for the next nights session after you had those 2 hits on the LSV ? I have the SSV and was wondering if you could just take a couple of hits and leave it in the wand till the next session ? or is it better to vape the whole lot in one sitting. Cheers.

    Good question.

    Yes, I do save the weed for the next nights session but rather than leaving it either in the wand or the wpa, I'll dump it in a small, dark lidded one gram air tight container to be used the next evening. I don't want to expose it to light and air nor do I want any smell emanating from my gear so this works the best for me.

    I start at about 8:30pm each night after I eat dinner. Starting with one bowl in the Solo on level 3 and casually take pulls on it until I finish it (usually done in 5 minutes). Then take a 45 min break and do the same again. With that I am USUALLY good and can sleep at night. This used to be accompanied by a glass scotch of on the rocks but in the past month I've stopped doing that, instead sometimes I might have a beer or two. The thing with liquor is if it is one sip too much then the next day I have an anxiety filled hangover which ruins my whole work day and it's just not worth it. I really like how casual and quick/easy it is to get medicated now that I have the Solo. It takes a lot of the "process" feel out of it and it's like your drinking a beer or sipping a drink- hit it as you like then set it down, etc etc.

    Now that I am getting a little into glass accessories though I wonder if I will incorporate them into the nightly routine or only use them on special occasions. I really just don't like to take SO much time to get medicated, I work 12 hours a day and when I get home I want to be with my kids until they get to sleep and I don't want the rest of the night's time filled with preparing set ups then dumping bowls/water and cleaning/putting away etc. I think when we move somewhere with more space it will take that bit of stress away as I can leave things in a locked cupboard or something, instead of having to disassemble and hide everything to make sure the maid doesn't come across any of it!

    Lately my routine has been pick a strain, break up a bud BY HAND into the firefly, and enjoy the flavor. That thing has been making even my desktops look like a hassle. I just love the flavor and instant hits. A bowl can take 1 minute or 20 minutes depending on the mood I'm in.

    I always Vape one ELB before I go into work to have a nice buzz through my whole shift, then when I get home its usually two to three ELBs and some gaming for the rest of the night.

    I keep a couple grams of bud ground up and stored in my jyarz. When I want/need to vape, I can just stick the stem in and vacuum pack the stem. I've got a small spoon that I can use to scoop some material out if I want. Also depends on what stem I'm using, one has a flat screen at the bottom, another has a domed screen for smaller loads, and a third has no screen/mostly for vaping concentrates with cotton.

    Depending on my needs I will either vape dry or fill up one of my glass pieces (since I store them dry).

    Most of my vaping is done at a friends place.

    So my routine is as follows:

    Arrive at friends place.

    Unpack vape and glass I have brought over.

    Plug in vape.
    Fill glass with water.

    Unpack my bud and abv containers, and survey if I have enough bud for the night.

    If not, I grind up a gram or 2 with my SCS.

    By then, the vape should be up to temp, and ready to vape.

    I have between 2-5 Elbs from my cloud (normally 2-3, but it can get as high as 5) over the course of 3-5 hours.

    I turn off the vape when I've got about an hour left before I leave to give it plenty of time to cool down before I pack it up.

    With this routine, I find that I can get about 1 week of use out of an elb before its too dirty, so my 8 Elbs can last me almost 2 months before I need to clean em.
    I just got 6 more Elbs today, so now I can probably get closer to 3 months before needing to clean them :tup:

    In a typically weekday evening I put 0.15g into the chamber of my volcano and do three cycles (6.5, 7.5 and 9) with a medium sized bag. This is over the whole evening but considering reducing this, just seem volcano isnt as nice below 0.12g.

    Your stuff is flying everywhere from the fan? Have you tried putting your bud in, then putting the oil screen thing on top? It would prevent the material from being blown around.

    5:52am. One cat is in the hallway, yowling for food, as she has heard the coffeemaker start the cycle. Other cat advances up the bed, stopping to poke her nose in my face, then she looks pointedly over at the Nano on the nightstand.
    I reach over, snag the cord, dial it to Max, then back it down to near 8. Crawl back under covers.
    Alarm goes off at 6:10am. I silence it, and turn on my light. Hubby goes to fetch us each a cup of coffee, and feed the loud cat, while I sit up, and grab my pre-loaded concentrate sandwich stem (see nano thread for details).
    Kitty positions herself snug against my side, upturned face with twitching whiskers, waiting for the first exhale. She then settles down, and purrs quietly.
    Other cat gets carried in, and put on my other side. After complaining and much positioning, she finds her preferred location, and then meows at me. She gets an exhale, and turns her purr up to max.

    We drink coffee, kitties get occasional exhales until they have about three each, over an hour, when one will hop off the bed and leave, and the other changes her location to be facing away from me.

    8:00am. Shower time, kitties are mostly off doing cat things now. Other cat gets fed, etc.
    ***********

    That's most mornings. The rest of my day is small doses of med, until I come home from work and sit on the balcony with my oil rig. Cats aren't real interested in vapor the rest of the time, just mornings. Oh, and my cats don't like anything Diesel... but they LOVE Purple Kush. I had both of them practically stealing my stem!

    To me, Diesel has a strange taste and smell, so much so, that I prefer other strains because of it. Guess I'm part cat.

    Enchantra,
    do your cats then share their catnip with you? Seems fair.
    Or now they don't need catnip, they've got something much better??

    Today's routine was pure bliss.

    Took a few rips off the lotus and loaded up a cano bag. 10 mins later I'm baked out of my mind dancing to The Chi-Lites "Oh Girl"...beautiful morning so far.

    I never wake and bake, i must be up for at least 6 hours before i bake, I always bake with tea of some kind. Its the contrast between stoned and sober that makes it all worth it for me.
