    I both over do and skimp, my daily dose keeps dropping and my binge days amounts just keep going up. The upside is that I haven't felt the need for a tolerance break for over a year and probably will avoid one till my low daily dose dosn't do its medical thing or the party amounts totally kill my throat. On the issue of draw resistance all my portables pale in comparison to my current favorite a Da Buddha with some changes. Its hard to beat the combination of 110 volt power and and a straight wide open air path.

    I’m now at about half a gram with my haze square. These bowls keep me lit all day.

    I can't say for sure how much it was before I vaped it but since I joined here in March I have accumulated about 3 and a half ounces of ABV. A few days ago I took it and made some butter and then some resulting candy.

    Very yummy. ABV seems to have kind of a 'sweet' smell to it so I figured candy would be a good choice for an edible.

    My standard 'crock pot' method of all day at about 170F. I used this 3.5 ounces of ABV and 1 cup of butter. After pressing with my 1 ton aluminum arbor press/butter press LOL I got about 3/4 cup. This setup is mostly parts from old rosin press prototypes and still needs some tweaking but works pretty well and is easy on my arthritis.

    I make the chocolate from scratch with butter, cocoa, honey, vanilla and a little cream or milk. I love to cook, although I'm not big on making candy. Don't really have a sweet tooth.

    I like to try to, usually starting a session out by trying to but then I inevitably cough. The coughing then kills the flavor and by the time I take the next hit my throat is all sensitive and the cycle spirals into frustration. It's bizarre, I could take giant pulls from a hookah that would make my friends hack up their lungs, but deep hits on a vape or any kind of puff on a pipe and I'd go blind from intense coughing fits. Vaporizing at different temps doesn't seem to matter either once I cross a threshold with how deep I pull, but the quantity of vaporizables proportionally correlates with how much I cough.

    I've heard that cannabis is an expectorant too, I tend to get nice and phlemgy when I vape and don't get any long term throat irritation, so maybe there's that aspect too?

    Time to go do more in vivo research! :science:[

    Hey, I get the goops when I vape too. It is much more intense with vaping than using concentrates, so I almost feel that it is harsher on my lungs. I can take a .15 g dab and get the same lung irritation as if I vaped only .3 of flower, but how could flower vapor be harsher than concentrated oleoresin? I feel that this might be subjective, but it also might have to do with the moister and water content of the flower?

    Chlorophyll, starches, sugars, tannins, etc. We could assume this has been understood for eons as most regions where wild landrace cannabis grows has history of hash making.

    Yeah, guess it was an ignorant stream of consciousness post. In retrospect it is obvious. Unfortunate too, and with the Jones Ruling concentrates might just be illegal even to medical patients in my state of Arizona.

    edit: Hey, I am about to pull the trigger on a Dabpress setup, is there a thread post that will help me select the correct h frame, bottle jack, possible analog or digital pressure transducer, so that when everything comes in it just goes together and works. I am ready to make my own, as it is the "right" way to go for me, and I don't want to make any 1000 dollar mistakes.

    Then don't press under heat.........dry sifting done correctly produces a far tastier product.
    All you need is some silkscreen and frames.

    I was going to go with this, but I have the room and budget for a full H press/Bottle Jack/Dabpress Digital Plate set up. I am not sure if that is better, mind you, and I might still get the slug master kit.

    I've been thinking about that every day lately as I hit my session 'limit' as in the average I usually do in a session. Once I get close to that limit, I feel like my body is letting me know. My throat gets very sensitive and it slows me way down, then it becomes pretty much impossible without coughing and blowing snot everywhere (drawing more attention) so I cease vaping. Very frustrating. Just started trying hemp fibre to help with this and it's plugging/backing up, even more frustrating. (Sbjr)

    When I feel like going to a 10 I feel like my body betrays me. I think I need to be a waterboy. :science:

    maybe 0.1g today, of super lemon haze, maybe 4-5 hours ago. a couple of sessions spread a few hours, or minutes apart. bit of a sativa kick, head rush at first. then a comedown/crash. feel stoned, couchlocked but not really a "body high". and depressed

    fuck this. it's like i should only use mj "religiously" as a meditation aid or just to do creative stuff. but why is the comedown so shit for me? is everyone in denial, or does it just happen to be worse for me? or i just can't control myself and take too much, when it should only be 0.015g even if it feels like nothing at all

    the high isnt even that good. not much euphoria, as i seemed to get before. chasing a high, being disappointed, seems kinda fucked up

    Okay a pretty disciplined day. Just one decent Elev8r load in afternoon (0.3) plus 2 vapcaps, so about 0.15.

    Evening- One more Elev8r load about 0.2, one more vapcap. One edible dose.
    So without trying, (in fact trying not to lol) comfortably over a half gram.

    And this is a light day- shit I try not to be aware of how much I actually vape so its just a subconscious awareness. The same way I never know my actual bank balance. I have an idea, and have to be sure Im not overdrawn but I make it my business to rarely check my balance and just make sure I dont spend more than comes in. At times I honestly dont know if I've got £50, £150, or £300 in the bank! And I swear this tactic has saved me lots of money and helped me make better spending choices.

    Still very nicely cained, but other days I use way more bud but always trying to keep it within reason.

    Not knowing your usage/balance helps you use/spend less? That's surprising. I find that keeping track of things, be it money, calories, Cannabis, etc., adds some pressure to keep things from getting out of hand.

    The thing with Cannabis tolerance, is that it has such a wide range. I am not at all surprised to hear that people use as much as you, or even significantly more. It's not very difficult to double your consumption without noticing an increase in perceptual effects, especially if you are having multiple sessions per day.
    Luckily, it's also not that difficult to decrease your tolerance, either. A couple of days off, and another couple of days of using very little, should be enough to set you back on the right track. You can also just slowly decrease your doses every day, if you don't want to take any days off.

    Most of my vaping is done at night I’ll vape p.u. All night long on average I’ll orobabky vape a gram give or take a little over or under. I figured it be in that range if I’m packing .30- .40 of a gram per bowl and I vape between 3-4 with the occasional 5th.

    I got myself a half decent set of scales and worked out my 3.5" 4 piece Space Case holds 10 grams(had to pat it own a little) this amount lasted almost 5 days. So, I actually use just over 2 gams per day. Makes it easy to work out amounts needed for holidays....an ounce a fortnight. I used to smoke just over an ounce a week so vaping has more than halved my MJ consumption.:clap:
    To be honest, I actually feel I get more medicated with vaping as well as getting a lot less headaches!

    Plus, it goes to show just how plentiful 2 grams can actually be for a day. (Honestly didnt intend that pun btw, quite funny though natural puns- that word was automatically plucked by my subconscious).
    I dont weigh my consumption. Like my bank balance, not knowing helps me be mentally satisfied with less some days. It can be a psychological thing, where you set an expectation fir a certain amount you think you need each day, and will do from a physical tolerance point of view if it is a sustained daily amount.

    I'm sure it helps me to have a little less on days here and there stretched the day out and still be straight up for the evening then get more hammered that night, in a less habitual manner.

    SonI dont know the exact amount, but its like if you are at sea and you are'nt sure if you have enough fuel to last, but you should be okay except you dont ibow how much is being used up or how long it will last. So you err on caution side. You still need to use it and travel. But you juggle a balance that way, and for me thinking maybe I had 0.9 gr yesterday better chill today for stash and tolerance sake.....

    So I do, I manage to have a day or 2 more moderate use, save some chips and lower tolerance for ongoing heavy stoning.
    Its that pulling back the throttle to make sure there isva bit left in the tank, if you get me. Whereas when you can clearly monitor it all the way, the natural tendancy is to max out your credit card just because you can, kind of.
    I bet I use more than I like to think. My mum and I work so damn hard for it each summer, its a big sacrifice and commitment. So I cant feel happy to blow through it like its firewood, especially when each crop may be the last for 2 or 3 years if we cant replicate.

    If the same was guaranteed every year, or I wasnt allergic to all other weed out there, then I could easily allow myself over a gram per day, and if I held my hits for less, which I would in a free weed world I'm sure 2 grams would end up being about the right amount for me.

    But the idea of no harvest due to countless risks and crap usual weather, makes me try and pretend Ive got a half gram daily allowance. Partly for peace of mind. So it isnt that I cant vape a gram daily, but not knowing exactly how much over 0.5 I have gone helps me to be a little more moderate as I describe.

    If we can navigate the next week of on off showers and get our cargo landed, I will be massively more relaxed about my consumption. But I will still use these psychological Jedi mind tricks to have lighter days so that I can enjoy the heavy days and keep tipping the seesaw in both directions if that makes sense.

    I am with you, when I used to combust, I was always worried about running out, I am now 2 crops ahead of myself in under 10 months of vaping and now have to worry about storing it, good position to be in. Growing outside here in Tassie is also hit and miss with the weather.

    This is sooo good to read. My first vaporizer is in the hands of the postal service right now and I am really hoping to get better medicated and cut my usage in half. I currently burn about 1g/day.

    No idea, honestly. We go thru a half each month, so it would have to be around a quarter-gram a day?

    The average gets skewed, my wife insists on keeping up with me, so there’s considerable waste (compared to me, she has no tolerance at all (...in more than one way)...). Left to smoke as much as I want (HA!), I’d prolly take in a half g/day...or more.

    Seriously, I ought to be a grower...cannot afford my enthusiasm, even when it’s aroundonce upon a time, my bro and me...we’d take turns trying to make the other wave the pipe away.

    Haven’t been as stoned since he died..

    Wow!! I guess I vape a lot in one day compared to most, I can’t believe 1 g was the highest number. In a full day I vape about 3.5 g, but I don’t wrk I’m on ltd. so I might be a stoner lol.

    What vape do you use?

    With the E-Nano, 3.5g would take me all day to finish. The Volcano would make it doable, but I’d be in space.
