    Even all there is on the photo isn't a gram, should be 0.55g in the first picture and 0.72g in the second picture.

    @olivianewtonjohn good call. I use one and it goes to 20 grams which is fine if you are not weighing an ounce at a time. You could always break the stash in half and weight each.

    @Baron23 unnecessary expense and not currently available.

    Weird Concept, however my POV?

    VAPCAP low end low cost = Flame style (M is the cheap one? However useful & Rotation tool 4 your arsenal!

    MINIVAP high end high cost = FLAVOR MACHINE miser with CANNABIS expensive however low cost in use.

    I use both for different reason's

    I'm CIVILIZED! (I think sometimes?)

    Back in the day me imaginary evil twin sister procured her meds via the non indexed interwebs. This in spite of living in a medical state and being afflicted with rubber stamp level medical ailments. Her concern was that having access to dispensaries would up her consumption. What happened was the opposite.

    In practice a single 4 plant (<1m tall) grow 1 time a year is more than enough for her.

    What is a microdose ? In the new thread on microdose images the topic has pop up again. I think it belongs in this thread here. So I'm copying some posts that I found personnally enlightning.

    This summarizes it very well IMO.

    It most probably depends on the sensitivity of the person. As for myself, even a minimal amount 'produces perceptible effects'. So there is always, with varied intensity, even very subtle, an altered state of awareness.

    Is it helpful in my daily life or detrimental ? For me that is the prism that I try using in managing frequency of use and quantity. It's a fascinating instrument but should never become an end in itself IMO.

    Indeed. Start low, go slow. Give myself time to appreciate where I already am. The state of mind is crucial in all of this I feel.

    So yesterday I started with .015 gram using my Solo 2 with a bit of cotton to hold the flower in. I got a bit of taste and a bit of vapor but decided it had no effect until I stood up and felt slightly dizzy.

    An hour later I dosed with .025 gram and had a bit of a buzz but not as much as usual.

    An hour later I dosed with .025 gram and felt almost as buzzed as a normal .07 session.

    An hour later I dosed with .05 gram and that kept me buzzed for 2-3 more hours.

    You're welcome. All in the name of science. :science:

    What's a good solution for micro grinding?

    It seems like your typical grinder yield is enough for days of micro dosing.

    Put less in the grinder. It doesn't have to be full to do its job.

    Get a pair of surgical scissors and cut up what you need as you go. Less bud damage and really good portion control. :2c:

    I moved from surgical scissors to a high quality medical tweezers with ceramic tip. A gentle little twist on individual calyx and you have a tiny microdose with virtually no lost trichs. You can even do it over the vape bowl so any trichs that do break, fall into the bowl. IMO, it's the least invasive method
    There are many less expensive versions but ceramic tips work well for non-stick qualities.

    I picked up ceramic tweezers, though not the pricey one suggested above. The grab and twist move is quite successful.

    But the small trimmings lack that stickiness you get from a standard grinder. They fall right out of a stem style vape.

    When I was Micro dosing I would rip off individual pieces as it would be more consistent than grinding. I think something like a GR8TR could handle small amounts as long as you made sure to brush it clean every time.

    Seems to suggest people are chasing subclinical dosing, where effects are barely perceptible. That doesn't ring true. Hmm. Isn't the chief concern tolerance?

    Dosing above micro levels is like pulling on a spring, with rapid and dramatic effects on tolerance, as the other end of the spring snaps to follow, raising the floor of perceptible THC the next time. I'm not even sure one can maintain perceptible dosing on a daily basis without developing tolerance.

    So many of these articles discuss THC.

    May I segue to CBD? Is there any reason to microdose cannabidiol?

    Tolerance does not seem to apply. Effects seem modest at any dossge. It's effects I'd call an awakeness promoting tranquilizer, which is rather unique. It is also biphasic, some say, with sleep promotion at very high doses, IIRC.

    Again, nothing really suggests microdosing.

    I still dream but only consume .07mg/day.

    Maybe at higher doses your dream state is blunted which would be great for those with nightmares.

    In case anyone looking for vapes that are great for micro dosing, the fury and the force as well as all of their rebrands work pef fectly. The chamber is pretty small and i get a nice two hit cloud from a pinch of material.
