    2-3 times a year i enjoy a tiny load hash in my sebsi (traditional morocco pipe) heated with a glowing stick of a campfire, guess that's more caused by wanderlust for the atlas and rif mountains but the taste ain't that bad tbh a burned load in a vapcap/vaponic tastes worse to me - i know :suspicious: :mental: :rant: :goon:...

    just want to add that although I voted months ago, I am totally combustion free. I would rather abstain than combust.

    metaknight I dab. A lot.

    I have not completely given up combustion, I take dabs off of my quartz nail everyday. But I also vape everyday.

    Dabbing is conduction + convection vaporization as long as your temps are right.

    I time my quartz nail past 1 minute. I don't have an IR thermometer handy but what I can say is that it always pools and I don't burn the concentrates on the wall of the banger. I'm assuming that's just vaping but I could be wrong and it's a mixture of combustion and vaporizing because of the color of the leftover concentrate.

    If you're not burning the residual plant material on you're definitely at vaporization temps!

    I will say I hate the taste of combustion, but dabbing brings out the taste of the concentrates just like putting some in some cotton and sticking it in your favorite vaporizer. :D

    Maybe even more so because mine is all glass/quartz, from the air path to the mouth. I don't have anything in my house that has that. I want the Evo for that reason, because it's just a little bit of stainless steel to hold the weed.

    Just can't convince my two friends that vaping is good. They basically can't get high without a gravity bong. Any tips ?

    They have to truly quit for a few weeks (meaning a month to a month and a half, not 3 weeks!) and say they don't get high off of a good vaporizer.

    but vaping is supposed to be more potent? Is vaping herb between combustion and dabs in potency?
    Could do dabs... they're technically vaporizing.. :p
    I wanna try a vapcap with a gravity bong.. maybe from a 750mL liquor bottle

    don't think I want to give up combustion for good, but it likely won't be a regular habit again. Still wanna fuck with joints somewhat, but something I wanna try is those fancy ass cigars made only out of weed, with wax and stuff

    The high from vaping is qualitatively different from the one from combusting. For one thing, combustion produces carbon dioxide, which, when inhaled, prohibits absorbing of oxygen, leading to oxygen deprivation. So, in part, a combustion high is not based on cannabinoids at all. Other factors are discussed here:
    http://fuckcombustion.com/resources/smoking-vs-vaporizing.4/
    And some other good information here:
    http://fuckcombustion.com/resources/switching-from-smoking-to-vaporizing.5/

    The high from vaping is in some ways more subtle, 'cleaner' and, so, an aquired taste that can take a little time to realize and adjust to. Over time, the potency comparison should not even be an issue. If "comatose" is your destination, vaping may not be the road to take. But you sure can get wicked high!

    Taste is another thing that should not be discounted. It's a world of difference, but again, can take a little time to fully appreciate.

    For me (and wife), the transition was immediate. As decades-long consumers, we had reached a point where we would be coughing almost every time we smoked a joint (we did love our joints some!). A Pax was our first encounter, and even though I now know there are "better" vapes & processes (Beware! the VAS is strong!), that experience was enough to seal the deal for us. That was 4+ years ago, and as others also say, combustion now tastes like fireplace ash.

    I keep hearing that CO/CO2 stuff... but I tried smoking chamomille in a bubbler and also in a "joint" (was really, really bored... and broke). It really sucked. Completely sober, no "stoned" effect. Just nausea after a bit. I think it's just that you're getting different chemicals, kind of like how vapor signatures are different?... if I can get an effect similar to edibles, I'll be happy.

    you can't get all of the good stuff vaporized with low temperatures that give the wispy vapor? Some vaporizers are capable of really thick full vapor without actually combusting, I think that is awesome. Wispy tasty vapor and thick vapor that gets you stoned as fuck both have their place?

    I've been a combuster for a few years, was a near-daily combuster for a month or so. The only vaping I've done is a little bit of dabbing from homemade qwiso hash, and some from extract-infused e-juice pens. Can't wait to get my hands on an M and some dank indica..

    when I was running low, I was having good results combusting tiny amounts of keef every other day to keep tolerance low. Really, microdosing with a bubbler. And got a pretty damn nice high. So really excited to see what an M can offer.
    before that i was smoking decent amounts of flower every day, out of a bong. with high tolerance it gets pretty lame...

    I won't smoke it anymore.
    Rather pass on it tbh.
    That being said I always have the crafty with loaded capsules so I ain't missing out!
    When my crafty and my friend's mighty are around no one in our group of 7 combusts.
    They have learned the hard way to respect the mighty/crafty lol

    I never combust if that's my call, however, I do hang out with friends who smoke and I often take few tokes when out and about from friends, but when it comes to me, I vape only...I wish I could say no to a joint...I just can't.

    I drink too much, get a hangover and say "I will never drink like that again". Months or more later the memory fades and I'm capable of drinking too much again.

    Combustion is the same as the above for me .... Friends torch one up and I hit it and immediately I'm reminded of how much I hate the taste, smell and lung burn. I steer clear of smoking again until the memory fades and in a weak state, without a vape in sight.....well, you know how the story ends.

    I bought my first vaporizer a few years ago, but I never completely quit combustion. I also smoked tobacco. I decided to quit combustion completely and got an e-cig (Smok Stick V8 for those who cares) a few months ago. Never going but to combustion.

    1st off to give context I will explain the situation i was in... i smoked over 2g of (high grade) bud every single day in joints (anywhere between half to a full ounce per week) a minimum of 10 joints per day with between 0.25 and 0.33g in each. I had intentions of giving up smoking cigarettes as I was buying 100 embassy number 1 every week. The 100 fags used to cost me between 30-40 quid a week and 100 - 200 quid for the half to oz (as an average).
    I decided to make the positive change from smoking regular cigs to e-cigs with a plan to gradually reduce nicotine levels progressing to 0 nicotine (still vaping e-cigs for flavour and habit). Part of my plan was to switch 100% to vaping weed with 0 tobacco in my life as I used to smoke j's with cig bacca in them. Fast forward 6 years and the only smoking I have done in this time was in the 1st year when my 1st vape (ascent) broke and the vas began (if my vaporizer breaks then I need a spare so I don't regress back to smoking but if my spare breaks then I also need another spare). Also when around friends who smoke I would occasionally accept a couple of drags on joints only to find the taste disgusting and my lungs would let me know they did not want the shit from smoking anymore by long drawn out coughing fits. I have quit nicotine juice completely and don't even vape 0 nicotine juice now. I have some cbd juice but rarely use this either anymore. I now get through between 4-7g of the same high grade bud per week so I am saving between 50-75% cost on weed and 100% cost on cigs / tobacco. This has meant I can afford many vapes and still saving some serious dollar at the same time and most importantly my health has subsequently improved (massively). I am just as high as I was before and I find I can tailor my high better to the situation at hand rather than smoking by starting vaping at the lower temperatures then temp stepping to higher temp for more sedative effects later.
    I could not and would not want to go back to smoking.
    I personally see no negatives from vaping only positive and the fact is I have 100% fucked combustion and for this I am immensely proud of myself.
    -Side note-
    The first year of combustion-fucking my dad had a heart attack, dying twice in the process. He was told to quit smoking (he smoked cigs only not mj) and if necessary vape nicotine rather than smoking. He has now done this and only vapes nicotine juice and I am proud of him for this. This also helped inspire me to quit combusting.
    I thank God I made this positive change and that my family and I are blessed to still have my Dad in our lives.

    Almost 7 years no combustion. In that 7 years i have had a couple of puffs of a cigarette, tasted totally digusting. Will pass on a joint if its handed to me. Also nicotine free.

    My wife would not marry me unless i stopped smoking.
