    However it is usually alleviated with more cannabis. Funny how that works.

    For me it's odd.

    Combustion always would make me foggy and out of it the next morning.

    Vaping has yet to do the same for me, but I'm wondering if it's hecaus I have to vape less material to get to the preferred altitude

    I voted other. When I smoked I was always tired and foggy as heck the next day. Vaping doesn't do that to me though. I don't forget as much either when Vaping.

    How many of you guys who voted either, "no" or "only too much too late", have taken 7-14+ days off? I definitely feel a bit clearer without daily (~1g) vaporizing, but never thought I was experiencing mellowing effects prior to a days first session.

    It's rare for me to take a day off but when I have I still wake up without feeling any different.

    After going on a long break (that I'm still on), I now think that one day off probably wouldn't be enough to notice a much of a difference, if you are a daily user.

    Did a 21 day break awhile ago and didn't notice much of s difference. I take 1-3 days off each week and don't go over .15 g on days I do vape.

    As a veteran cannabis user I do not feel the effects of the herb from the day before, however, when I first began using cannabis 40 years ago I recall feeling the effects from good cannabis the next day. It was kind of like a residual body high feeling.

    When I let my tolerance go down or take an extended break, whenever I vape again I will feel super groggy the next day, and feel a low-level buzz for the entire day too.

    As tolerance grows, I feel nothing. I wake up feeling a bit groggy, but it passes within 1 or 2h. No further after effects.

    This. Is. Huge. IMO.

    I'm on 33 days abstaining, and the difference for me is MASSIVE in so many ways, but I was also hitting 2g/day from when I woke up to going to bed. Life is so much better now, so I can never return to my old ways.

    The poison is in the dose, like other drugs, and everyone has to figure out a risk/benefit assessment for their own medical or recreational conditions.

    The only time I ever felt the affects the next day....got together with a bunch of the local FC crowd for a vape-a-thon. Left the 'thon' feeling like I had done a 180 and vaped myself straight. That feeling of having vaped myself straight disappeared 1 mile into the drive home and was replaced by the highest high I've felt in close to 40 years. Last time I vaped and drove.

    The room we 'thon'd' in had a multi-level vape cloud hanging off the ceiling that would have rivaled the picturesque clouds seen topping off a major mountain.

    Woke up the next morning with my cloths still reeking (I didn't even think that was possible) and the picturesque clouds had moved from the ceiling to my head. The clouds in my head didn't part till mid-morning and even then there was a slight residual.

    I'm curious to see how it feels after a 2 month break. I don't notice any differences anymore, and I think all of the residual cannabinoids are gone.

    I'm a bit worried that having such a low tolerance will increase some of the "medium-term" negative effects, like next-day fog/tiredness, and lethargy due to low blood THC levels. It seems like there is a fine balance between using too much and always being in a bit of a fog from residual THC levels, and using too too little and having no tolerance leading to the same thing despite lower blood THC levels.

    Same here, considering i've never gone longer than 7 weeks without in the past decade! How long has it been so far?

    I wouldn't think you have anything to worry about unless you start up again daily? If you have next day fog/tiredness, just don't fall into the trap again and vape to make those feelings go away. Skip a day or two.

    Today is Day 55! That's about 52 days longer than anything in the past 4 years.

    I would like to be able to vape daily, perhaps even twice a day most days, but if that makes me too foggy, I won't. It shouldn't take more than a few big bong rips to get stoned, now that I have probable have no tolerance. I'm thinking of skipping a day or two here and there, or maybe even a week here and there, to lower residual THC stores until they are at unnoticeable levels.

    Sounds like a plan, and similar to what I plan when I resume. If you want to vape daily, then you should vape daily, and perhaps do the Dr. Sulak's method of taking 48 hours off when you feel the need. If you take off a week every month, or month every few, I think it's very sustainable and a great relationship with the flower. Or I also read someone vapes daily for 2 weeks, then abstain for 2 then repeat, to enjoy both the flower, as well as sobriety.

    I continue to feel slightly medicated, nearly constantly. Had a beer today for the first time in 2 months, and think i'm quitting it for life. Just hate the feeling of alcohol now. Much prefer cannabinoids, and even caffeine over alcohol. Weightlifting is really helping my motivation now, as my sleep starts to stabilize.

    When I was buying from farmers in NorCal, no.

    When I moved to Az and joined MMJ, yes.

    The poor light spectrum of commercial grows, amongst other things, makes it groggy weed. Straight facts. No one is getting shit done on weed like they did in the 70s. Today's weed has all the negatives we used to roll our eyes to. Its not too strong, its too commercial. Reworked for fast crops and a thc number. Very unnatural profile in plants that haven't seen daylight or soil. Space out weed. No giggles.

    When indica first became a thing, it made your body heavy and short feeling. It didn't make you groggy and crusty eyed...

    Not just me, then?
    Over in Amsterdam, a couple of mornings I woke up feeling pretty "fuzzy" for lack of a better term.

    That's a great description of how I felt.

    No. I feel pretty normal on days after I vape. And days before I vape. Days in between too. Wait, that would be... Well, I just vape and feel normal pretty much all days. I just vape. Nothing complicated. Big reason why I do it. :tup:

    I've noticed cannabis can have an impact on deep sleep; I don't dream as much if I go to sleep not long after getting medicated. I'm more rested if I don't medicate before going to bed

    I kind of feel less rested after dreaming but of course more productive in the sense that my brain dint just blackout for several hours. I guess it feels so good while you're awake that your body doesn't feel the need to dream. Is dreaming healthier than Cannabis I wonder... I chose other on the survey because I'll admit I can feel better the day after weed than two days after..somebody might call that junky behavior but:worms:
