    Depends on the individual. Although I will say this: Been using my VapCap OG for a long time now. On a lark I exhumed my VXL Evo from storage. I quickly found out that the VapCap was keeping my head happy but not my body. The first session with the Cloud reminded me of why I use it for chronic arthritis pain.

    Switching up and using a different vaporizer that you haven't used in all while is sometimes all that it takes. Maybe discovering a new vape or a new strain.:love:

    Actually I don't really think consuming cannabis as a whole is natural. Vaping cannabis definitely isn't natural and using shatter assuredly isn't natural, yet somehow those get a free pass as "natural"?

    And before you tell everyone else to stop spreading misinformation, why don't you factcheck your own information? As for me, along with almost everyone else in this thread, microdosing was a life changer. On the contrary everyone I knew before basically this thread said more is better, more is better. Not feeling it? Have some more. And you know what that leads to? A very high tolerance, withdrawals and a fat dent in my pocket. So I'm sorry that you feel that my information is misinformation, but microdosing has changed mine and many people's lives for the positive. I understand that each person is unique so you may need x amount of weed to get you where you need to be, but don't come in here and just say everything is a lie with no reasoning as to why. I would be more than happy to hear a reason as to why not to microdose other than that it's unnatural.

    OK sorry to push your buttons!
    SHATTER is processed not natural.
    However I like the compounds.
    CANNABIS is natural in it's original form.
    VAPORIZING taste amazing. (OK it's man made)
    IPHONES are man made as well.
    Micro dosing is popular for you.

    I have ATAXIA (SCA) SPINOCEREBELLAR ATAXIA (shrinking cerebellum)

    What do you have?

    CANNABIS is natural and should be FREE.

    I'll stay away since MICRO-DOSING is for some. (not all)

    Sorry to ofend you!

    I joke a lot.

    GUESS you must not have a sense of HUMOR?

    CIVILIZED is my AIM!

    Sorry if you perceive me as UNCIVILIZED.

    I think I'll have a mega sized portion of BUBBLE GUM OG to WAKE UP before I read!

    This is a very informative thread and I'm sure has helped many. @ataxian uses humor a lot around here. A very beloved member that uses cannbais to control the disease he deals with. The threads on FC create great diversion for many. Me included. FC has changed many of lives I'm sure.

    We need to do what works and helps us. We are all so very different.

    That's cool if you're just messing around haha. just hard to read tone on the Internet and it sounded more so like you were bashing the thread lol

    But ya also was not trying to say micro dosing is the only way to go. even for me sometimes I just need to be blasted to survive certain things.

    yea, microdosing is good for as the main consuming method, it allows to feel healthier and saves cash, but it doesnt mean it has to be the only method... you can rave whenever you want however... :rockon:

    I'm just saying it's not for everyone!

    MICRODOSING is not for me that's all.

    I love everyone.
    We all have different needs!

    Some are not EVOLVED as much as others.

    Maybe it's just me being UNCIVILIZED?

    @Vaked420 sorry to offend! (I'm harmless)

    oh, i think you are in the majority... i mean, most of the cannabis users are not microdosers..
    but thats what make microdosing so special, the ones who can enjoy microdosing, will enjoy much more than the others, using tiny amount of the flower...
    oh and sure it depends on needs, but in the bottom line, i think that you can fill most type of needs with it, people are just fear to try or they just dont know about it which i can understand why...

    I think vaping cannabis can be natural....I saw some videos of some Jamaicans who were essentially vaporizing. The stuffed this tube full of weed and had a piece they put on top but was a bit further away and then they lit a coal.

    Also called Jamaican steam pipes I guess. Pretty cool concept!

    I don't know proper microdosing (if a set amount) but one underdog glass stem is good for a few hours for me, so thats pretty small. I do tend to just do one every hour or so and keep a stronger high throughout the day. I've recently been using my Vapman and it's great for microdosing, good way to start the day or end the day (with kief here tho :p )

    Here is one with Bubbleman but long

    Then why is it important to post multiple times in a micro dose thread, if only to say you don't micro dose?

    Do not live for others?? Indeed!

    i got a little carried away and have been averaging 1.6 grams of bud a day. plus a little shatter a few times a day.

    i went a bit nuts over the huge selection of medical pot and have tried over 45 genetics so far. i'm also playing with my herbalizer so i'm experimenting a bit more than i usually would.

    i started reading this thread again and got motivated to get back down to a gram of bud a day or less. im retired and i like to be buzzed but being stoned a good part of the day is getting old. well, oldish. :)

    i bought a scale that does .001 and i'm using a 1/8 tsp measuring spoon to eyeball what is about .04 per bowl (i fill a balloon). i have spoons that are a smidgen and a drop too. i'll figure out how much weight is in them and go from there.

    the scale will be here tomorrow so ill start weighing very small doses and play around.

    my real motivation is, i've averaged $700 in pot and hash per month, for the last 3 months, and although i can afford it, it's stupid to waste good money when i could piss it away on something else.

    What vape are you using? In many cases the right vape will pay for itself.

    I used to use 5-7 grams per day while combusting. Now it's more like 1/2 gram per day.

    Since I grow my own $ is not really motivation for me, but old tired lungs are.

    My biggest reductions came first by vaping, and then getting an appropriate vape.

    I have vaped only now for two years.

    Most of my vaping is now with .05 gram loads in an underdog vape. I think the right vape may be key. It was for me anyway.

    And it might help to reset your tolerance by taking a mj break.

    At least once or twice a year I take a break for 3 days or more.

    When I restart after a break it's easy to get where you want to be with very little herb. And in my case, lower consumption does not mean lower enjoyment, or relief.

    Best of luck, there is a lot of good advice here.

    i use a herbalizer. it's precise temp control makes it interesting to find the different highs of a genetic.

    i will never take a T break unless mandated by a lack of weed!

    growing is the best. i grew indoors for 20 years and i was hoping to get back into it if we legalzied.

    i'm in arizona, we didn't pass legalized weed but i'm a med user so i'm good to go.

    i've done nothing but .05 bowls or less for the last 2 days. i vaped less than a gram of bud yesterday but about .25 gram of shatter too.

    i went from 8 joints a day when i retired down to .75 a day when i found the right vape.

    i just realized that i started this thread a year ago yesterday! such timing! :)

    fuck combustion!

    Hey man thanks for starting this thread. Really changed how I consume cannabis and was part of the catalyst for big changes in my life in the last few months.

    Thanks again for starting it and to everyone giving great info!

    Tried to search before posting but no results, so here is my question, anyone ever try male plant material?

    Well, the point of female cannabis, aka sensimilla which means "without seeds", is just that. By letting the female grow and not reproduce she is forced into making much more resin which is actually the plants strategy for trapping cannabis pollen. The female matures but is not allowed to reproduce so she creates more sticky resin, which is what we want, in order to potentially trap pollen, reproduce, aka go to seed.

    I never said males were completely useless, I was providing context on why cannabis is mainly grown as female and males are culled.
