    I am just curious about how others do with their bud?

    I am doing about a gram a day right now but usually I prefer 1.5-2.0 grams a day. A session is generally .2(one bowl)-.6(three bowls)

    I am presently conducting that experiment. In combustion days, tracking acquisitions and outages over time, I was rather consistent at .6 to .75 grams daily. So I told myself, but I was likely doing at least 1g daily due to unrecorded gifts, at least recently.

    My ascent and a measured amount of three strains both arrived in-house at same time, and are being tracked over the expected months of use.
    A recent .01 g resolution scale may speed up my science.

    Although I don't have much of a use/reason to own a scale so I can't measure by weight...but I vape 5-6 times a week, each session two stems with the Solo...and I have had the same ounce of stuff since mid-January (it will be done in 2 weeks probably). For me, the MJ has been the least expensive part of this since I stopped combusting and started vaping. Awesome investment!!!

    My expenses haven't decreased too much. I used to smoke 2g a day 1.5-2g. Now it's more like 1.5 (except for right now)

    I think I know lwien's secret, as it's mine too.
    I believe he uses very very little per session, just like me.
    I get many many sessions to a gram.
    A few pieces of med fine ground herb does the job, and lucky it
    does as my meager stash needs to last a long time.
    It's good to be a lightweight ;)

    The correct answer is:

    As much or as little as required by the condition or desired outcome! LOL!

    When i smoked i have no idea how much we smoked, kilograms of the stuff!
    Joints were always as fat as a finger because it was so cheap!

    Now that i have moved onto vaping, sometimes i cannot see a dent in my supply for many weeks.
    Even though my tolerance is sky high at the moment a simple strain switch always gets me back on track again.

    I guess my vape sessions are from 0,05g to 0,1g per session and there can be many of them in one night!
    Weekends it increases a lot because i am home a lot and i like it!

    A small CVault holds about a 1/4 and it took me about 4 months to get through all of it.
    So it varies a lot! LOL!

    I only vape or dab in the evenings but over the last few years I've been able to cut down from 3.5g a week to 1g with no discernible drop in the quality of my high or the medicinal effects.
    It's definitely good to be a lightweight ;)

    You think 1g a week is a lightweight? Guess it's all relative, eh?

    I think i could get down to 0.5g and maybe one day reach your yogic levels :lol:
    But i've so many strains,hashes and extracts that i'd really miss having the opportunity to taste them.

    I can say this with full confidence.. Never will I see a person who uses as little as lwien. I know you dislike videos but I would dig seeing what a session for you is like(visually ).

    When I was combusting with impunity, it was at least an ounce per week.( I knew the grower.;))
    I have always been very generous when it comes to sharing with others. When going to a concert or other event I would pre-roll 5-8 good sized joints ( sometimes with errl. Been making that for 10 years.). If someone around me wanted some I would pass it to them and tell them to keep it. I would light another. Since I've started vaping (mostly concentrates now that I have good tools :tup: Thanks W9tech). Now a session consists of a 3-5 small balls (slightly smaller than a BB) of concentrate. That same ounce now lasts 3-4 times longer unless I combust some socially.
    My old daily habit would last @lwien a month or more!:bowdown:

    .05-.1g per session. 1 session per night on weekdays, maybe two sessions every once in a while. Probably 2-3 sessions on weekends. This is with my Herbalizer, which I use 99% of the time.

    My daily usage varies and I dont vape everyday. On average I would estimate it is about .080g (had to buy a milligram scale to weigh my doses :D) .

    For reference I just checked and I bought an 1/8 (high grade) on 4/8 (almost a month ago!) and I have about half left. My usage is roughly 1.75grams a month.

    @lwien your not the only lightweight in town!

    I'm at about a gram a day (1oz per month). I have been for 20+ years.

    Unlike most, my usage went up when I went from smoking to vaping. I got back down to an oz/month after a while, but I have to consciously ration myself to stay at that level now.

    About 3.5g/wk. Down from around 7g when it was set ablaze.

    I have a bunch. They range in how efficient they are: MFLB, Nano, Firefly, EVO, Pax.

    I try to stick to the more efficient ones to keep my usage down, but they all get plenty of use.

    I'm fine with my usage, I was just mentioning that not everyone's usage goes down with vaping. Maybe I just like it too much :lol:

    I am also in the batch of persons whose usage went up... I am now back to about where I was when I started, but it goes up again every time I get a new vape or glass. For example, the learning curve for me was a ton of fun and an enjoyable process with the Lotus and Hammer- pairing either of those up to my new Sheldon Black just gets me excited!

    Also, I have a really high tolerance but have difficulties with a Tbreak because of nausea and inability to keep down food without meds. Even with a huge cart like the Volcano or Plenty, I always need more than one bowl to get my fix... it adds up.
