    Select the best answer (or up to four choices to indicate a range) to indicate an average session of yours. I'm curious to see what kind of curve we get.

    This poll is only for sessions where you use bud and not concentrates.

    Votes are not displayed publicly, and can be changed if you're routine changes.

    I typically vape about 0.4-0.6g a session.

    Even then that's kinda overdoing it. I'm not even a medicinal user. I just like to get fucked up.

    That's part of what I want to figure out. It seems like there are a lot of micro-dosers here, which in turn makes it seem like normal-dosers are way overdoing it. However, that might not be the case. It could just be that the micro-dose thread has been pretty popular lately, bringing more attention to those who use extremely small amounts.

    It makes sense as to why it would be popular. They're using less product which means their stash will last longer and that saves money. Micro-dosing doesn't seem like something I would be into though. I find it relaxing to just sit back and blow cool vapors. Micro-dosing might come in handy after a tolerance break though. Take 3 weeks off and get fucked up off 0.15g vaped at 195C

    Then again that might not really be micro-dosing. That's micro-dosing to me though!

    You can really get high with such a small amount of weed? That's practically fairy dust!

    By request, I have just zeroed out the votes and changed the poll to one entry only.

    Peace all!

    Also curious if everyone knows (I don't 100%) whether this is talking about "...and you are using cannabis during the day *this way only*", etc.

    Like, if I hit flower, it's .5g as my breakthrough pain relief, but even *that* is on top of background concentrate use throughout the day, etc. Making some RSO to start that again, etc. here soon as well.

    So I am curious if these vape amounts are "and that's all the cannabis you're using" type answers?

    Obviously need more Berry White flower after that...

    Peace!

    I microdose a Sativa during the day every couple of hours for the energy it provides. Indicas at night. I am at .015 per session.

    When you start microdosing and begin consuming slightly less than the day before, than the day before, than the day before, you realize that the same effects can be had for far less than you ever imagined possible.

    What kind of effects are you guys getting from such low doses?

    @DDave That really is an insanely small amount. I know that tolerance can vary pretty extremely with Cannabis, but are you really getting a lasting high/stone off of that dose, or just relief from specific medical symptoms?

    Thanks, @Stu.
    Whoever varies their session size throughout the day, or throughout the week, can just average them all out, and use that as their selection. I think this way will get a better reading.

    When you're used to .005g doses, there are many things that can impact the effects.
    I've noticed that there is quite a difference in having a tiny piece of stem in a .005g load when measuring it significantly reduces the overall size of the load, and in turn lessening that load's effects.
    Or on the other side of things, if I pregrind and keep in a container, a .005g load from the bottom of the container has much more effects... probably due to kief falling to the bottom of the pregrind.
    (Not sure if that made sense... just done with a .005g sesh... )

    That being said, I am targeting a feeling of elevation that leaves me functional. Slow down a never-ending stream of thoughts and keep Menier's vertigo in check.

    It gets a bit tricky though, when I come back from restocking and find that .005g of the new strain has gotten me way higher than I wanted to be... This only happens the first few sessions of a new strain, so I am kind of stuck switching strains on the weekends.

    I'm anywhere from .01-.04 per sesh in the brick.
    In my electronic vape that holds 0.25, i make that last around 5 short sessions lasting a few days.
    I'd rather just stay sober than vape .005.

    I found I am actually vaping .3g per session which was actually less than I thought (changed vote accordingly) every 3 hours.

    This thread has helped already - I am now paying attention to how much and when, not to slow myself down or anything, just to be more mindful. (Chronic pain means I do \very little measuring...load it and *make it stopppppp!*) :)

    You micro-dosers are blowing my mind, please keep posting that stuff. Forces my mind open.

    Peace and healing to everyone.

    I've cut down my usage significantly from .33g to .15g lately. The effects are the same if not more pleasant and I can feel the difference between strains quite a bit easier. Which probably has to do with the fact I'm not overloading my body.

    I think after a certain amount of vapour you just get saturated with cannabinoids and it's not worth the extra herb. Chasing that extra 15% of effects for 50% more material just doesn't seem worth it.

    I used to go through a ton of weed and now a half oz lasts me a month or more.

    I vape primarily for energy and small amounts provide a clear headed motivational energy that only a nice sativa can deliver. I feel good, uplifted and ready to take on what comes. More is not better. I have found with pot that the best effect is the least amount that can get you there. Overindulging does not give me a better stone. It does seem counterintuative but I enjoy my weed far more now than I did when I consumed heavier does.

    The adjustment to microdosing is worth the effort. And the bonus is that you spend less on your stash and it lasts much much longer.

    This was basically me 6 months ago. I vaped around .25 gram per day up to 1 gram per day depending on factors in my life. When I became more mindful of how much I was vaping and what my vaping "triggers" were it helped me to naturally vape less per session and to deal with my personal root causes for vaping, which were many minor issues added up like minor depression, anxiety and self esteem issues.

    Anyways I find now that essentially ddaves regimen of .005 on weekday buzzes and about .03-.05 fits bigger sessions. But I rarely can hold myself to that, especially without a scale to force myself not to creep my dose up. right now I'm sitting around .01-.03 for a buzz and .1-.2 for a nice session. it's when I throw concentrates in the mix that shit gets really fucked up tho lol. Easily can consume 5x that in equivalent cannabinoids per day

    I say a bowl in my Flowermate Mini is about 0.5. I vape during the weekends only so, I have a really low tolerance. Usually one bowl lasts me like 50 minutes of vaping that thing which is annoying a sometimes I don't feel like doing that. So, I'd say on average I vape .3 per session and that gets me to at least a [9]. If I vape the entire bowl which sometimes I need that I will literally go to space.

    Um, amen.

    I am trying to find that mix - I am actually going to be doing a shatter run, and I am actually going to take second-wash and make some low-dose RSO caps, like .1g decarbed oil each day.

    I think like you said (in my case chronic perip. neur. left arm and leg) if I can get certain triggers under control like muscle spasms, etc. in the "background" with RSO like that, I think my overall daily consumption will go down. I have been picking up the cooking bug as far as edibles again from some damn oatmeal lwien posted a recipe for...can't stop eating it, had it three nights in a row for my bedtime canna-nightcap before I ran out of oatmeal in the house...

    Sorry - to be more specific, I am trying to keep my cannabis intake as low (but medicinally effective of course) as possible because CANNABIS is what I have to treat my condition until...uh, death.

    If you hear I went back to opiates? Run. Shut down the forum. Answer NO pm's from me... :borg:

    Seriously though, I have also run through all the off-label use of every med under the sun (next one back to try in the formulary was "Bleedest thou the patient with leeches", I believe...) :uhh:

    Peace!

    Vaping around 0.1 per session, came down from 0.3 in a week and trying to get into microdosing. Already trying 0.07/.05 and have to say that is a decent buzz, couldn't believe that such a small amount can get some effects. I like that even a small amount takes long to turn brown in my EQ, which makes my session last long.
    I consume it only for anxiety and stress relief, much more on the recreational side.

    Do you ever throw less than .05 in the EQ? it will look nothing in that huge bowl. :(

    The thing that I don't like about micro dosing, is that you don't get to sit back and enjoy vaporizing for a while. It's like lowering your alcohol tolerance to the point where a sip of wine gets you drunk and you can't have a glass or two with dinner.

    Having a low tolerance (a few tenths of a gram per session) is nice for saving money, but it also means you're getting less cannabinoids per session. If you're using Cannabis for medical reasons, perhaps that isn't the best option. Especially if you aren't only easing your symptoms with the relaxing feeling from vaporizing. Having a higher concentration of cannabinoids in your body might be better for some conditions. When given medicine for certain psychological conditions, doctors start increasing dosages until you get the desired effects, rather than sticking with micro doses and trying to get more from them. Granted, it's not always the best option, but I don't think that it's always better to micro side, either. Not everything is a matter of how strongly you "feel" the effects. Some things just need higher dosages to achieve the desired results.

    Yea, I could imagine about the stem pieces. The whole load is only several little pieces total. What do you get out of that small of a load, hit wise? It doesn't even cover the bottom of a Nano GonG screen, and can't even whitewall a Gb-186 one time. Do you get stoned, or just a slightly different headspace that feels nice. Because I know that feeling between sober and stoned, and it's a nice relaxing one, too. It's just not the same as the face throbbing, heavy body, 3d sounding music, high/stone you can get with a higher dose, for me. Is it actually the same for you, or do you just enjoy that stage before getting stoned?

    Do you actually get stoned, though, or just a mild buzz?

    That is the reason why I find very hard to get into microdosing. I mean I enjoy the vaping moment, so I can do 0.05 sessions, but I will need like 2 or 3 to satisfy my need of vaping. And that sucks coz it gets me to the moon.
    Lately I'm just having three or four hits from my flower mate 5 pro through a bubbler which gets me a nice buzz at 200/210C, but the taste and the lenght of the session doesn't really match how satisfying is a session with the EQ(taste and lenght wise).

    Everything is relative. I get as high as I would want to be without knocking myself out or totally couch locked. If I can't get to sleep I may vape a bit more of a heavy Indica.

    But the amount I microdose is sufficient to get me where I want to be. I am never left wanting. I never feel like I would like to be more stoned than I get.

    I enjoy my high much more now than when I used to consume much much more.
