    Actually, this is how I microdose. I load my VapCap and take a hit at a time. I usually get 3 hits/heat cycles/sessions off one load of .05 gm.

    This thread and the micro-dosing one as really opened my eyes ! (Just for a moment, lol ) thanks to all who post and to EverythingsHazy for the survey poll idea on subject!!
    I'm sadly a .2ish but will aim for .05 after seeing it is possible and being done by many.
    I joined this Forum only last week seeking Log Vape information and it's been a great time since!!
    I recently started vaping maybe a month ago with portable vaporizers therfor even my current .2 rate is to me small when compared to combustion. Still, I get quite the affects I seek and have noticed many advantages to vaporizing!

    Today, I only dosed half the amount per session 0.1ish (being inspired by you guys the previous night!) Im quite suprised by the high and vape I still get from half the load!!!! Vape is not as dense but the feeling and buzz is :) I feel like this will improve over time and once having a log vape in hands !
    Happy vaporizing ! F*@& combustion!
    I did notice I pack the bonG way less when / if reaching for it too :)) now I need a .00 or.000 calculator loll

    I decided to try DDave's 0.005 dose in the SB Junior. Success! Got a good cloud after milking it as far as it will go in one hit. Surprising how satisfying that hit was. My tolerance isn't low enough to feel all the effects I want from 0.005, but it still felt good. I should've held it in longer like someone with good microdosing skills would. I'm so impressed with the efficiency of this vape. That's 5/1000ths of a gram for Christs sake. Thanks @DDave for the inspiration.

    There's a difference between micro loads and micro doses. You can load .1g and take one small hit off of it per session. That's still microdosing.

    Glad it's been of some help to you! I'm liking how much everyone is getting so into the discussion. Check out the Gem-20 scale. It does 0.001g measurements (smallest load I've got to register on it is 0.004g).


    Awesome. I like how detailed it is.

    I've been doing pretty well tracking my usage, but I've had to estimate a couple variable inputs after forgetting to weigh prior to taking a hit, or forgetting to stop he timer to end a session for the duration measurement. It should all be pretty accurate, though.

    I am all over the place!
    Since i am a medical user a lot of my usage is based off stresses and subsequent aches and pains gathered during the day. I never use any MMJ during working hours, this includes before work.
    Easy days and my ABV bowkl has maybe 0,5g in it.
    On stressful days and weeks it easily doubles or more.
    The good thing is it always goes back down again, keeping my tolerance pretty low all the time!

    Well now it's not really the same is it. Much more vapor from 1 hit off a full bowl vs a microdose. And you've merely added a new term ( to me anyway.... Microload lol starting to sound a bit silly now ) to what I was explaining anyway. Anyhow I'm trying not to get to anal with my plant now. Itssupposed to be enjoyable not an army exercise. Fire that shit up and chill. My consumption has more than halfed since I quit smoking.

    True , but how much vapor or hit will you get from the 2nd 3rd pull of your full bowl at a later session. Quite hard to tell or know percentage of what the first hawl extracts. I personally prefer having a fresh equal load & effect in a microload then to pack a full bowl winging it on multiple sessions . But that's me, I prefer using what i pack immediately rather then extending it to 2-3 sessions.

    Could be relative to a person's vaporizer too, i suppose. If one as a big chamber it becomes more of a challenge to pack a micro-load depending on the make/model. Equipment maybe becomes a prerequisite.

    Its a question of personal preferences really too, there is no right or wronG " load size" , they all a'ight ;) Just like in bluegrass, bad grass is better then no grass :)

    I've felt this to be extremely true.

    Only problem is...you're vaping less ... and sometimes it's not about the end result, but the journey. And a short journey isn't always fun.

    .05 here, with about 2-8 hits in a bowl depending how I want to do it...Much visible vapor with each hit.

    I will go up to like .15 sometimes when I just want to vape for a while. A lot of the time it's the journey for me and not the destination. And the flavors. And the destination. Just .. all of it, nevermind, yeah .. everything. Vaping is great.

    Good point. I guess on the flavour side small amounts equal consistent flavour but for consumption over strength of hits I'm not so sure.

    I like to vape a few bowls in the Mighty while watching a film or fog up the room with the Evo (sometimes back to back sessions). I enjoy the process of vaping as much as the effect.

    I was skeptical about "vaporizing", I'm still a rookie really but so far all advantages I had read about it are there !! Even this , which I have tried with success for 2 days !!. I'll change my vote from .2 to .1 :)

    I swear, I feel the same affects if not more. I can't explaining it (to myself) but do I really have to? loll maybe I'm extracting it better because there is less , I dunno , it could be from learning my happy place vs being over spent too (cool to know both) .. I'll keep practicing .

    One hit off of a 0.1g bowl is not the same as one hit of of a 0.05g bowl (even though you can adjust the duration to approximately control the dosage), however, if you are managing to use 0.1g for several sessions, you're still micro-dosing. As for the term "micro load", I'm not using it seriously as much as I am using it to differentiate between the dose and the load.
    I agree. I'm not trying to make vaping less enjoyably by making consumption monitoring an annoying chore. I'm just trying to get a decent visualization of how it is generally used by the vaporizing community. It helps put things in perspective, as well as shed some light on the factors affecting our experiences.

    There are so many variables in any type of dosing, (vapes used, bud quality, etc) with maybe the biggest wild cards being an individuals preferences and expectations. With that in mind I don't think there is a wrong load as long as the user is happy. So in the name of science, its time to go test that theory! : )

    That's kind of summed up what I was trying to get at. I started to microdose and it became a bit of chore and I had to check myself and remember I actually enjoy loading up vs treating my habit/addiction, kind of staying medicated vs getting wasted. All I know it's one thing I can say about combustion is it wasn't half a complex as vaping lol , mind you it's gave me a whole new interest in my world of weed.

    Edit: in an afterthought... I'm probably only feeling this way as it's holiday time and I'll go back to the micros when I'm back at work.

    This is a blank version of my Vaporizing Analysis Chart Sheet. The graphs automatically update as data is entered. The entire thing is done on a Mac using the Numbers app.

    The two single variable graphs on the right are bar graphs with dotted Average lines. The big graph is a line graph.

    Admittedly, I've had to estimate a few inputs after forgetting to weigh something prior to taking a hit or forgetting to stop the duration clock, but I just always round up to solve that problem. It's a lot of fun watching the graphs fill out. It turns out that I've been using less than expected, and I've still cut down my usage a little bit, already. You could always remove individual parts of what I posted, to make it simpler.

    I think anyone who wants to give micro-dosing a shot, should set up a similar chart. If it doesn't help after 2 weeks, don't keep using it. Visualization can be a big factor in motivation, and it makes it much easier to cut a tiny bit off of each session, until you hit your desired dose/tolerance level.

    You might even find that if you are treating a medical condition, using less Cannabis might not be working better for you. Who knows?

    I bought the finishing grinder from magic flight about two weeks ago, and had it in my possession for about one week. While it is not a necessity it completely changed my vaping experience as well as my consumption total.

    Because of the very fine grind I get much better vapor production, not only in my magic flight but in my herbalizer as well. I bought the finishing grinder funnel from delta 3D studios and it makes using the MFFG with my herbie so simple. 0.2 through the finishing grinder (assuming the material is dry) will fill the herbalizer bowl completely and get you FUCKED UP! Which is all I am looking for in the end!

    I thought I was using less weed when I first switched. I halved my consumption after already halving my consumption. Does that mean I quartered my consumption?

    They make a funnel for the MF finishing grinder?!? Thanks for the heads up!! My MFFG is essential for getting great performance out of my Alfa but ive just been grinding onto a tapletop and using a piece of a straw to load the Alfas oven. ...which btw is such an awesome vape that I get super stoned off of 3 hits which only uses a small fraction of the 0.25 load.
    Can you post a pic of the funnel?

    ^Yeah that's the one I have.

    I found it just randomly browsing the site one day. I was like "I need this" and bought it.

    Ya the magic flight finishing grinder is king. Completely revolutionizes micro dosing for almost any vape, but especially any conduction based vapes. Didn't really make a difference in the volcano as compared to a normal grinder tho.
