    When you vaporize do you use more or less herb thqn tradional methods?

    My opinion is if your a heavy user also someone who loves the taste of vapor you'll use more.

    If your an occasional toker you'll use less because of the uplifitng high vapping provides, which is even more pronounced in situation of low tolerance.

    I defintly use more herb than bonging but I am left with a big bag of left overs which still have some goodness left ... so in the long run it probably evens itself out.

    Under optimal conditions I think that vaporizing is more efficient than combustion when speaking about THC. AFAIK, some THC is destroyed at the high end of combustion temps, and it's the lower temperatures in the process that basically act as a crude vaporizer. For example, when you're smoking a joint, the red hot end is destroying most of the THC in the portion that is actually burning- The herb behind the ember reaches temperatures high enough to properly release the THC, but you also get the smoke from the ember and all the bad stuff that comes with it. At least that is my understanding.

    Of course there are other compounds such as CBD, CBN which are in higher concentration at combustion temps but now I'm going off topic.

    I think it depends a lot on the situation. If you really wanted to conserve, you could vape 0.1g or less, holding in your hits as long as possible and get pretty rocked. On the other hand, you could vape casually, enjoying the flavor and go through 0.5g or more. :ko:

    Personally, my bud seems to last forever now that I only vape. Nice to have a few flavors on hand.

    I think my problem is vaporising is like the zen of delivery methods and I find it quite addictive. The taste and hits are just too intoxicating :brow: hahaha ... so much so ... I'm off to 'hit that whip' again :ninja:

    Less, no more, no less, wait.

    I see what you mean... haha

    It's certainly more efficient.

    I don't cough and have the respiratory problems associated with smoke so I can do more.
    I don't have to worry about smoke odor anymore, so it's an anytime thing, more.
    Yes, it tastes great. More.

    Maybe I end up using the same amount, but I think I get a lot more out of it. :o

    I found that at first I used very little. But now I use as much or more but it is a better high and lasts longer. Also, it doesn't put me to sleep, so I enjoy it longer.

    Vaping brought me back to the herb. I smoked it for many years in my 20's but then left it behind because of smoking concerns as well as the smell of burnt weed and old bong water. I learned that vaping existed on the FC about 4-5 years ago and never looked back.

    I can't believe I thought smoked weed tasted good. But it wasn't about the taste back then. When we were jonesing I'd scrape me own mother's bong when she wasn't looking if I could get my hands on a little tar resin.

    I must say that I still love the smell of a lit joint.

    Much less bud then when I vape, most of the time. If its combustion its usually old style pipes and papers for me. Using vapes I have more options, better heat and load size control means I can get tasty hits, stretch my supplies or still whip out the big volume kit and burn the hours away with big cloudy hits.

    Couldn't agree more!

    When I first got into vaping it was because my wife got back into using and our MJ bill went up by more than double. I rarely get high during the day but when she retired and didn't have to worry about random drug tests anymore she was finally free again and was determined to make up for lost time. She warned me before she retired that she could hardly wait to use again and she wasn't kidding.

    So I looked into ways to stretch the MJ bill and found the Magic Flight Launch Box (MFLB). It was so efficient that four little wispy hits was enough for each of us per session and our weed bill went down below the level it was when it was just me alone using! Not to mention how much healthier we felt.

    Eventually we became curious about what else was out there besides the MFLB and that's when I found @stickstones , who provides a vape concierge service to newbies and others who have questions. Sticks answered ALL my questions, assisted me in getting some pretty good discounts on vapes and schooled us on glass, best vapes, clouds and taste chasing. I can't even count how much money and frustration he saved me. Sometimes he'd lend me a vape just to make sure I'd like it! But there's a downside to Sticks schooling us like that.......we started to enjoy the clouds, taste and high so much more that we started using so much more. Another factor was my wife developing debilitating migraines that required massive amounts of MJ to keep her out of the emergency room. Stick's vape recommendations were especially useful when it came to which vapes were better for medicinal users.

    We still use less herb now than before we found vaping but nowhere near as little as we did when we first found the MFLB. As Sticks mentioned... the amount of herb we go through may be more now but the high is better, lasts longer and OMG the taste!
