    whenever i hit a vape, no matter if its the n02, mflb, the extreme q or the vapour genie, without fail on the first hit ill always have a shiver. it only happens once and i cant think of any reasons why it happens. Am I alone or does anyone else get this?

    I get the same thing when I take an incredibly satisfactory pee. I'm not even kidding. The reaction is actually called "post-micturition convulsion syndrome" and it's thought to be because your body drops blood pressure to make you pee, and then you release chemicals and hormones to fight the drop in blood pressure. Also, something about the "fight-or-flight" senses and the area of the brain responsible for that.

    Maybe your body has conditioned itself to associate weed with lowered blood pressure (which it does trigger) ? Maybe you're just subconsciously excited to get some cannabinoids. I know when I have a really bad sweet tooth from my Vicodin, whenever I fulfill the specific craving, it's just so much better than if I were to have it normally. Sometimes it's a 30 minute drive to a specific Greek food place because of the cucumber sauce they use, sometimes it's the Snickers I have in my car. Once I can fulfill that craving, my body feels... crazy. All giddy, electrical. Like I'm full of static being released in a really weird, primitive way.

    Maybe I'm just really high, I keep feeling the shivers :rofl:

    A good stretch will do that to me. It's like watching a cat stretch.

    It happens with guys a lot more than with girls, due to the fact that we (usually) stand when we pee. The trickle effect kinda tickles some nerves which send signals to your brain blah blah

    shiver

    I get shivers after piss, rarely just spontaneously. Didn't know there is actually name for that :D The strongest shivers everytime happen before and after dimitri sessions. So it must be at least partially caused psychologicaly. How else could you explain it happening prior to big events.

    I remember having that once in a while, you gotta be really exited about getting vaped for this to happen. Usually you think about getting high for a while, waiting for the moment where you'll face your favorite unit puffing massive coulds.

    I had that on my first hit trough my mist maker bong, because I was really curious and I waited so long to try it.

    Salutations FlyLolo,

    I used to get a cold nose while i was preparing a joint for my "tokeu" (combustion), this doesn't happen anymore when i load a crucible for my HerbalAire... Still, i do occasionally experience some sort of a tense reaction when the "hit" is strong: those events are very physical.

    :peace:
