    Some will say it's wasteful. For medical conditions that require high doses, macro-dosing can be called for. Not talking about vaping a little every hour, but putting back 5 or 10 or 20 bowls in a sitting.

    Do you macro-dose? If so, which vape is your favorite for this method? I like the Nano and DBV, because both can stay on 24/7, so no long wait times between hits.

    It is not uncommon for me to use the following method when I want to get suitable toasted.

    2 x .05 NonG's through the UD
    1 x .07 VapCap bowl
    2 x .05 NonG's through the UD
    1 x .07 VapCap bowl
    2 x .05 NonG's through the UD

    in a 20 minute session although I am cutting back significantly these days as less is more I increasingly find. Maybe one day I will be able to post in the micro dose thread.......

    it's all relative. One amount consumed by 1 person could be a macrodose for him while it's not for someone else.
    I've been microdosing flower and am very satisfied with it. I never do concentrates, but last night I dabbed 1 wax rip at a friends house and the hit was too big, I coughed for 20 minutes. 1 hit and I was sent to the moon like I hadn't been in years. I was almost too high. That was my macrodose for the year.

    I'm a medical patient, but I tend to treat herb pretty recreationally, the medical needs are always met in the process though :D I can moderate my herb usage pretty well too, if I have to.. but when I can, I like to stay as baked as possible from morning to night... Basically, the more abundant "cannabinoids" are for me, the blurrier the definitions like "moderation" and "enough" become :shrug: In glutton mode, I like to switch up as many different types of vapes as I can, throw edibles and extracts in the mix, and even a blunt or a joint.. I like to keep my bases loaded.. Not that I need all that, but once I get locked into a serious weed mission, the tendency is to push it as far as I can :spliff:

    Macro dose on weekends, and try and wind it right back weekdays. I do not feel like you get the return on your bud compared to taking it conservatively but macro dosing can cure many self inflicted ailments on a seedy Saturday morning.

    My old Saturday morning routine was 2 x curry pies, large choccy Moove & a dozen cones. Provided I was not still vomiting from the previous evenings activities that is :lol:. Either that or if you stay drunk you can't get hungover.

    Not sure if I get the full concept, if any to macro-dosing. But I started prepacking my baskets for the EQ and have a glass stand that I have them set up so I can do them in succession. Tired of loading and fumbling with what may be hit and miss in say a 5 bowl session.

    Am trying to microdose with the UD, but doing 5 in succession with a KISS method need to come together in some way to make it effective and not require cleanup. Trying to pair it up with something else that works well with small amounts and have those 5-6 hits in under the 20m session with little effort and cleanup afterward and then ... back to the keyboard. Like say how @Stevenski 's method works for him.

    When something interrupts that flow. It almost resets the clock and requires more bowls. :bang: Vapor train derailed.

    With trying to streamline my setup, I now have lowered my tolerance and tricked my EQ's bowl so that two dried pre-planned baskets can do the trick. Still should get around to weighing tho.

    If you require high amounts for a medical condition, then you don't want to get bogged down with too much and try to live normal after a session as opposed to an entirely recreational setting, whatever your definition of that is. :peace:

    Oh sh#t, I'm baked enough to be honest. I macrodose because I'm retired and it gives me something to do all day long. Not every day, but sometimes for daze on end. ;) Did I mention both naps and caffeine are necessary, at least for me, to maintain a proper macrodose lifestyle? :lol:

    When I want the biggest hit I go for the versa infinity, then og sublimator then og cloud. They will all work efficiently as well, it's just on how I load/use it. I use an @DDave mod with the versa if I want efficient.

    Also I'm surprised nobody's mentioned bags/balloons, a densely filled bag can deliver huuuge hits:science:

    Brother!!! This has been me for a long time now! Tried the micro dosing and it works for a bit but as a medical patient and user, the more the merrier!

    Your post made me instantly think of this quote from one of my favorite authors:

    “We had two bags of grass, seventy-five pellets of mescaline, five sheets of high powered blotter acid, a salt shaker half full of cocaine, and a whole galaxy of multi-colored uppers, downers, screamers, laughers... and also a quart of tequila, a quart of rum, a case of Budweiser, a pint of raw ether and two dozen amyls.
    Not that we needed all that for the trip, but once you get locked into a serious drug collection, the tendency is to push it as far as you can.”

    @Creeper Guess i should read the whole thread before posting... LMAO!!!

    Sometimes I load up a silicone stem for my log vape and put it through some water for giant giant tokes. The lsv was great at giant bowls. My WPA for the lsv had the biggest bowl I've ever seen!

    My Sticky Brick has been my go-to for macrodoses the past couple months. Recently I got the Hydro add-on and it's ridiculous how fast I can finish that huge chamber with the assistance of water. No heat up time at all, and 100% pure convection. It's truly impossible to run down the heater no matter how hard or often you hit it.

    The VapeXhale EVO is awesome for macro-dosing flowers but for the ultimate, therapeutic hit, The VB2.5 Multi-Converter, aka the purple killer, has to be the utmost winner . . . :ko::ko::ko::ko::ko:

    It says plainly in the instruction manual that if you have anything important to do that day it will not get done after using this device. They are correct . . . its absolutely annihilating . . . :zzz:

    Hahaha, so I got really high just now to reward myself for doing college work before and after a half day of work. And house chores. Anyway, the term "macrodose" was floating around my mind and I did a search and found this thread. Sometimes I want that one giant big hit. That twax double decker hit. Sometimes I'm good with a little pinch of herb every half hour. And then there's 3 small and 1 large bowl of green with some sprinkling of cbd concentrate, which I've been finding great for sedation and relaxation. But works best added to a herb or rosin. Mmmmm
    Anyway, I am so anxious for my ELEV8R to get here so I can do one giant twax and go to BED. :)
    Ok, well that was some diarea of the mind and I'm sorry if you read that and somehow feel disappointed or maybe even wish you didn't read it. Goodnight. Sleep tight. Don't let the bed bugs bite. And there is something different about one GIANT bowl VS multiple TINY bowls. It's different highs and I like and use both regularly. But tonight, I'm proclaiming my love of the bowl that's really maybe just too big, really. The slap you in your face kind of hit.
    Right now, though, I'm this dizzy silly sleepy high, so bye

    Typically I’ll load my Herbalizer with a full bowl of shatter and herb, and blast it into an oversized bag. While that’s filling I’ll hit my Vapcap with more of the same stuff. I’ll then fill the bag again, load another cap, hit the Vapcap, finish the bag and if I’m still functioning enough to load my Mighty I’ll do that too, and hit a Vapcap again while that heats up.

    It kinda becomes a flavour/cloud chasing frenzy. Until I’m too far gone and get so easily distracted that I forget to load the vapes for more.

    Herb is self limiting

    I've been having success loading up an enail with shatter, and low-temp dabbing. I can sip on it for a while, turn down the temp, then come back later and finish up.

    I don't macrodose, but I think the VapeXhale EVO is a really god vape for that.
    It has decent bowl size, for microdosing people one full bowl could be a macrodose.
    And for others, you can just preload more ELBs and they're super easy to swap when one is finished.
    It requires no stirring, so you can go through a lot without the break of taking the bowl out, opening and stirring it and putting it back in.
    It has a powerful performance and great heat retention vape bowl after bowl after bowl, each one could be vaped in 1-3 minutes depening on temp and your lung size.
    It has included water conditioning making that much vapor easy and smooth to take in.
    And on top of that its all glass so you get superb taste out of it as well.
    Plus the ability to vape concentrates really well.
    Its good for microdosing, but I think it was really made for macrodosing.
