    Lately I haven't had the luxury of having cash left over after paying the bills so I havent been able to buy any fresh weed for a while but Im wondering,

    The first time I tried re-vaping, few days later I tried and it had a sort of bad smell & taste obviously because its used. But then a month or two later when I was out of weed, I tried out the same batch and the bad smell had gone away and it was almost like fresh weed. The thing thats confusing me is, even till this day its getting me pretty high. (Been vaping on the same half oz at low temps for several months now)

    (I dont like to get extremely high, I enjoy more of an intense "buzz")

    My question is,
    Is this healthy? Or is re-vaping weed at low temps bad for you? And all I'm doing is breathing in c02 and bad stuff? Or should I continue? I feel like I wont need to buy fresh weed for a few more weeks until I can afford to. Is it true that theres still a lot of thc left on it ?

    (Also the bud is not black or dark brown, its more like very light greenish / grey & I keep the temps on my silver surfer low enough to where the vapor is barely visible to the naked eye unless you have a beam light)

    I do however tend to get tired quicker, more headaches now and then and a bit more thick mucus with this method opposed to fresh weed only, so I'm not sure what that means,
    But if theres alot of thc left, knowing it now, I dont want to waste it, vaporizers are awesome!

    And my experience with edibles is that they are too scary and the high is 2 intense to enjoy, its either intense or nothing usually, I think I prefer low temps & many vapes. Just hope its not too harmful

    No harm in re-vaping your herb as long as its not all moldy and nasty.

    Thanks for the reassurance! I must be at pretty low temps on my ssv because everyone else it seems after a few sessions their bowl is dark brown or even black! After months, my weed still has green on it and is not even near brown. Maybe I have gotten used to just getting low temp buzz's and not stoned, but Its crazy that I still get pretty decent high, Id say more than a buzz, every day all day, for months, and yet my weed is still no where near as used as most people from 1 hour of use.

    Yeah, so long as the weed isn't dark brown, you should be fine! Only thing I've noticed is that ABV has the tendency to turn to "powder" faster than regular bud so if this is undesirable for you, be careful handleing it it.

    I've done the same with no issues.

    Have even been known to mix a bit of concentrates in with ABV and revape.. .ABV soaks up the concentrates nicely, then you can vape like it's long-lasting herb!

    That's cool. Revape the same oz for the rest of your life. Never drop a solitary dime again. Lmao

    Assuming you've been revaping at the same low temperature, the tiredness and headaches are likely due to a couples things. There are a number of "ingredients" that play a part in your high - various cannabinoids, terpenes, flavonoids, etc. These all vaporize at different temperatures and after vaping the same batch multiple times, there will undoubtedly be less and less of each of these active components. So as you lose some, the high changes. Also, THC degrades to CBN over time. CBN causes tiredness, disorientation, confusion, and dizziness. So it's a likely culprit for your negative side effects. Use fresh bud and you'll definitely avoid those effects.

    So to answer your question, it's not bad for you, but it can be uncomfortable depending on what's left in your herb.
