    For the purposes of this thread, we will use the following scale to describe different levels of highness.


    How high do you usually get when you vape?

    How much do you vape each time (if you vape in sessions)?

    How much do you vape in a day total (don't average in days in which you vape nothing)?

    I recently switched from smoking flower to vaping concentrate.
    Long time flower smoker: ~30 years
    Short time concentrate vaper: ~3 months

    ~ 12x a day; ~ .5g wax/day
    2 dabs / session
    Immediately upon finishing a dab I'm Blazed for a short time.
    That ramps down to Really High and then to High in ~ 45 minutes.

    Since switching I've been tracking intake and so far have saved about $50 a month.
    + the quality of high is much better, lungs feel cleaner, less smell around the house, ...

    I typically only partake once a night to keep my once a night session as epic as possible.

    Really, it gives me a lot to look forward to every single day....my pre-sleep session.

    I'd like to land in 8-9 category, but when I have ample Hash on hand, I end up in the 10-11 category right before passing out with my whip in hand.

    I'm using 1.5 grams per week of herb, Hash consumption is contingent upon how much I have on hand, if I have 5-6 star Hash, a gram will last a month (Fat dab per load)

    I'm working on lowering my load input to 0.1 or less though, with the help of another FC member, I'm looking to make the DBV one of the more efficient Vapes on the market. (Especially figuring starting price points per unit)

    I've got a really good feeling about this.

    Great thread @EverythingsHazy !!

    I think I have a pretty low tolerance for an everyday user, probably go through 1.5g a week with a morning and night session - so never really "over-indulging" IMO.

    Three Vapman bowls (flower) will get me to a solid 6.5/7 every time. I don't think I would be able to finish a fourth bowl! I will usually have two in the morning before I go to work and have three or four UD stems at night.

    I would say that I am at about a 3 usually, but that includes when you meet someone for dinner and they look at you laughing immediately and questioning how much you smoked that day. So yeah, I'm in the "I'm good. A nice high-ish buzz" mode, when in reality I'm probably at around a 6. I have had conversations on the phone and realized I got to a point where I don't even know how I got there or where the origin was. What were we talking about again?

    I use once or twice a day, wake and bake and again mid afternoon. I do not know the amount because I have no scale, but no more than half a bowl of a one-hit pipe at a time. The above scale is not applicable to me. I call myself high because I get to a mind state in which I am watching my thoughts from quite a philosophical distance like up in a hot air balloon. But putting sentences together and finding perfect words becomes effortless, I lose my appetite, feel physically stronger, while sunlight and colors and sounds take on many added dimensions. My material is normally harvested a bit on the early side, mid grade, speedy for mind and body. I do not use cannabis as a sleep aid. I do not like high CBD. Valerian and melatonin get me through the night with entertaining dreams.

    when i wake and vake i like to be around a 4. as the morning goes on, i usually end up around a 6 or 7, which is higher than i wanted to be, but it feels so good, and then i nap. :)

    i average from .08 to .1 of a gram per bag of vapor and that usually keeps me happy for 1 to 2 hours. i vape .75 gram a day of what the dispensaries call their best.

    Interesting! Thanks for the graphic.

    With the right bud and the right circumstances (the time and space to craft my buzz the way I want to - not frequent for me) I get to 5 but with some definite hallucinatory effects (the best part!) and without the obstacles in communication or clarity of thought. Actually, it's the opposite. When I'm just right, I'm as eloquent and engaging and clear-thoughted as all get out! (At least I think I am.) The silly thing is I get there with very little herb. I'm a total light weight despite using daily. Back to back hits on the nano would waste me. One usually does the trick, and then I can maintain throughout the evening (or afternoon...) with single hits here and there as called for. If I get to four hits total by the end of the night, I've been high for a long time and I sleep like a baby.

    That being said, my re-entry to buzzlandia (I had a 25 yr. break!) was at a festival a couple of years ago. The folks at the camp site across the way were hawking their goods (Strawberry Haze) constantly and I figured what the heck, everyone else is high so I might as well join in. A short time later as I was walking around solo I was feeling like an acid trip, no lie. By accident, 'cause I didn't know how to use after such a long break. A very very memorable couple of psyched out hours!

    My re-entry was via combustion, which I did for a year or so, but not daily. Vaping allowed me such versatility with my usage that since I started, it's been a daily thing. Not that perfect 5 necessarily, but never too far off.

    How high do you usually get when you vape?---- Going with the chart 5-6

    How much do you vape in a day total?----.05g to .14g depending on the quality of the MJ.

    For me, the feeling of being on cannabis is better described with a "binary" scale, then with a 1-10 scale. There are two feelings for me: medicated (1), and not medicated (0). Maybe it's cause of my mental condition, or the meds I'm on, or whatever, but weed feels like an on off button for me. It's rare that I go to an "0", as I feel that doesn't happen until I haven't had cannabis in 20+ hours.

    If I had to compare how my binary "1" feels, it would be a 1 or a 2 on the 1-11 scale. That said, when I go past that I don't get higher, I just feel exhausted.

    At this point I'm not going to get past a 6, even that would take a new strain.
    But after a 30-day t-break I can get to a 9 easy, damn near catatonic :sherlock:

    About a 3 all day long!
    Maybe a 4 before sleep!
    I don't know how much per day?
    30 grams a month GSC.Hydro

    When I wake I vape.
    Every 1 1/2 hours a session until sleep.

    Nice Chart!

    I generally like to hang in the level 4 through 7 range, with the occasional 8+ mindfuck of a high :science:.

    Oh yeah, I consume a moderate amount weed. I'd say anywhere from 2g to 3.5g per week.

    I usually only vape in the evenings. On the weekend I'll sometimes take a couple hits during the day but only to get to the 2 range on the chart. During an average evening, hitting a bowl on the nano gives me about 4 hits and that takes me to the 4 (high ) range where I am just fine. About two hours later I'll vape another bowl to put me back in the 4 range until bedtime.
    If I vape two bowls then I'll get in the 6 range which i right on the edge of being uncomfortable. I wouldn't want to be higher than a 6-7. I'd start having a panic attack.

    When I'm high, I like to surf the net or go with one of my hobbies. I just like to feel relaxed and high when I do those things.

    Since I only use .05 to .1 grams a day, weed lasts me forever. I bought an oz last spring and I still have a quarter of that left.

    I'd say usually around a 2-4 regardless of how much I vape. Seems to be a ceiling on how high I can get. Obviously those in occasions when you get surprised and wind up 5+ baked!

    Can/does anyone here get the feeling of waves of energy / vibrations throughout your body (8-9+), and stay at that level for a while (more than a minute at least)?

    Do you get the waves of energy and/or vibrations throughout your body for a while? If so, how long do they last?

    And Thanks
    Thanks, man. Thought it might lead to a fun/possibly useful discussion.

    Man I used to get those waves and vibrations when I first started to smoke cannabis, which was about 20 years ago.

    Getting smoked out is what we used to call it. What I felt was as if the 4th of July fireworks was happening right inside my body. I would get a sensation in my feet that used to shoot up my body and all the way up to my head and I would get tingly sensations inside my head. If I didnt get too stoned, it was a real calming effect as if waves of the ocean were massaging me inside.

    Also, who needed television, when I was content staring at a blank wall for 2 hours and watching a movie in my head until I snapped out of it. Ahhhhhh good times.lol...smoking with a group of friends I knew when everyone was stoned out their mind because there was just silence.

    I guess its true what they say, one is always chasing that first high, at least for me its been that way.

    Fast forward 20 years , these days for how much I try, I cannot get like that, even when I was still combusting and even after a long t break.

    My intentions of vaping bud is to get properly stoned. I know Im properly stoned when I start talking to myself and watching my thoughts. I would also forget stuff, go to a room looking for something and away my thoughts went. Going by the chart that would be an 8. I have not reached an 8 for a long time. Even when I was combusting. Vaping these days I will reach a 5 maybe 6 and it has only been made possible by the volcano, which is a heavy hitter. It could probably be the type of bud that its available to me at the moment. I would like to reach higher vaping, but there comes a point where I cant seem to get any higher and it becomes tedious work to the point of getting uncomfortable, for my throat and lungs. Though with edibles I have been able to go up as far as an 11.

    As far as how much is involved for me to reach 5 or 6, I have never measured it.

    Its a after work before bed thing and since i'm awake for like 8-10 hours after work I start with a sativa like green crack or panama red than move into a hybrid like golden pineapple or gorilla glue #4 than right before bed I do indica like Afpak or some kind of kush.

    No scale to measure I just keep vaping till I feel medicated ;) :lol::smug::tup::rofl::zzz::zzz:

    This is exactly how I feel, except for the edibles but I'm sure that's just a dose issue. As far as smoking or vaping I feel once I reach around a 5/10 diminishing return becomes extremely noticeable and can never really get much higher than that. Obviously there are those random times you get nice and high, and after T breaks, but even then it doesn't last long I find. Normally 3 or 4 sessions before normal tollerance returns.

    I vape around 0.5g from 6pm-ish until i go to bed (most nights) and usually build up to around a 7 according to the chart.

    A friend has herb that gets me to an 8 or 9 but i only indulge a few times a year. An 8 or 9 is very intense and i have to make sure that i have nothing at all on for the weekend (rare) and i like to only be at 8 or 9 when i'm at home. It's a fun treat, though, and i don't want to overdo it and have it become routine.

    Exactly, T breaks help somewhat, but then what? And an ongoing long session reaches a certain moment, that to me its just wasting herb.....

    But I never really get where I wanted to get, instead Im still left standing on Earth with luggage in my hands waiting for the spaceship to arrive.

    Its funny, everyone is after something different, I only wish I could get my hands on something that dances between 8 and 9, I would do it more routinely.

    Also the atmosphere Im in affects my buzz. For instance, I can be home relaxing buzzing lightly around 4 and if I go with that same 4 outside it might jump to a 5 ish. Enough for me to notice, without me having to vape more than I had to. Outside stimuli? Maybe. But something does affect it.
  23. nondarb

    nondarb .

    4-5 tops. Vaping is a very effective MELLOW high for me, but none of it compares to combusting for the classic face numbing drool inducing stupor.. A big fat dab or bong rip will take me places vaping simply can't.

    Im not knocking vaping, just saying there are different tools for the job. 9/10 I don't want to reach shithouse rat status anyways so vaping works for me.

    I have tried smoking less to get higher and the way I saw it I was probably getting slightly less high or as high as normal, with less weed obviously being a bonus. Even with smoking less for a while, smoking a lot at once still seems to reach a particular limit and then tapers off again. So I figure while I conceed smoking as much as I do certainly is wasteful it doesn't limit my ability to get high just increases the usage which I can live with.
    Am interested to try the Vapcap because I think it will not only limit use because of bowl size, but the manner in which you use it seems it will please the fidgeters and those of use who use for the activity not just the high.
    Also need to make some dabs to hammer, I'm sure a giant dab rip would take me to above normal highs.

    Great question, I never knew exactly why the SSV logo was "Ride The Wave " until I started vaporizing my Bubble Hash.

    Even dabbed Bubble, never gave that sensation.

    However, after putting a fat pile of Hash in the wand with chunks of frosted flowers......

    The first time I experienced it... The first thing I thought of was 7th Floor's Slogan.

    Waves of warm vibrations that would travel from cerebral in to the body in an eb & flow manner.
    Visually, things become hazy, thoughts overlap each other, and my face feels like it's glowing.
    This feeling lasts until I'm already in blissful slumber, which always starts 30-45 minutes before bedtime, so the duration is at least a hour or more.

    When I eat edibles, there is no waves, it is a consistent buzzing sensation that also entails the same qualities of the wave, except it is constant.
