    Yeah, @asdf420, CBD is hardly "inactive". But not in a cannabis sort of way. Almost like a benzo. And it sure reverses a lot of THC effects in seconds, wow.

    It's probably thanks to the many constituents pulling in different directions that vaping cannabis flowers causes no rebound when not doin' it. But I suspect we're in for some rougher water when people are selectively taking huge doses of isolated substances, like THC -- maybe even CBD. The tree-huggers may be right after all, stick to the God-given flowers?

    I notice when I have a high tolerance the sativa high is basically not even noticeable. I think I could microdose better if I just switch back to a pen, I think the desktop vape station is getting me in trouble again since it creates this habitual environment...

    What do you call a pen?
    What kind of hardware/atomizer/cartridge?

    I just found an old long eGo battery with
    adjustable voltage that still works!
    Good for a "pen", a little long, cigar-like.

    "Habitual environment". Ain't that the truth.
    Gestures and positions playing back, automatic,
    I can vape 0 nicotine juice, but it's hard not to.
    I can't leave this desk because my nic vape is here.

    Maybe you should get some fake Midwest weed,
    Oh! No! K-2 or whatever them crazies call it, no,
    you're batter off sticking to the local product. But
    you'd need to find some ritual to replace it. You
    into music? Time to get a Kalimba. Very tactile.
    Good way to work off a little I miss my "habitual
    environment" excess Kuda-fuckin-lini ;-)

    I went into a "smoke shop" today, where they sell e-cigs and a lot, a LOT of bongs and bangers and various glassware, and the guy behind the counter explained, as I puffed on my 5mg/ml nic juice. He had one of these tiny salt-nic all-in-ones and was hitting it. He said Brother, you're enjoying that juice and walking around. It's not like that with salt-nic. It's strong. You pull out the little vaporizer when you NEED A HIT. And you inhale and it hits hard and you put it away. More like that. Different thing.

    Now I can think of analogies with various other substances, and not as a put down, but is anybody down to business like that with cannabis extracts?

    I have recently been on a break for 16 days during the holidays, as I was travelling to a very non-friendly country... The hardest part by far was the previous months, trying to make my mind up about how I would do without.
    In the end, the disappointing part was not to be without it, it was how easy I got by without it!

    There were other factors: I was always with people, exercising, had strong alcohol to somewhat replace Cannabis in the evenings, satellite TV, a couple books, and even the jet lag helped too.

    When I travel I really do not need anything else but company and fun stuff to see and do!

    This break did bring an overall improvement tbh, other times I was still thinking regularly about Cannabis, moslty thinking how cool/relaxing it'd be to have one here or there or doing this or that activity.
    But I focused on the activity itself instead, which was what I used to do in the past, and was pretty refreshing. Sometimes Cannabis "holds" you back, this time was able to do things differently and let go.
    Since I made my mind up from the start only REALLY, really missed it 2-3 times.
    It was great to enjoy the trip without worrying about anything and doing different things than usual.

    Been on a break since August 14.

    I did try some cbd oil in a pen the other night when I was really hammered. Was pretty good. Huge clouds. But not sure if I felt much. But was also very drunk haha.

    Nice! Yes, it is much harder to be on break when in your old routines at home. I think it comes down to dopamine - when we medicate, our brains are getting a dopamine PUNCH, and sober life seems so boring in comparison. But when we travel, every day is dopamine filled as we move from new place to new place, meeting new people, trying new things. Novelty is nature's way of delivering a dopamine dose!

    I feel proud of myself, I've finally gotten my habits under control. Had a little cannabis this past Sunday when we were just lounging and relaxing at home, one bowl vaped, had no desire to have more. Each day I look forward to getting up and out the door whereas before I felt so lazy and lacking in motivation. Perhaps it's also the fact that I'm 35 now, maybe brain's not quite what it was like in my 20's, but that could just be a cop out. Regardless, really enjoying life right now!

    Try it again when you're sober, it just has a slight relaxing effect for those of us who don't need it for medicinal purposes. A friend of mine has some very concentrated oral drops and he says he can DEFINITELY feel it, so to each their own!

    IMO this is a real issue with plugin desktop vaporizers... The desktop "vape station" creates a highly habitual environment. I've had feelings in the past where I felt like I could hardly leave the room cause I didn't wanna go somewhere without my vape. For those without the best self control it might not be ideal.

    Same here brother, diagnosed with crohns 30 years ago and the only thing that helps with my symptoms is cannabis. If I don't consume for a couple of days nausea and lack of appetite kick in to the point where I feel absolutely horrible.

    That's an interesting point. I can see how being stuck to a certain spot whenever you vaporize can be problematic in certain ways. I can also imagine that having access to a nice hit whenever you want, with a portable vaporizer, might lead to heavier usage since it will mean you have access to Cannabis regardless of where you are.

    curious if a CBD with beta-caryllophene would help (earlier studies indicated so)

    I have gone about a week without. Have vaped every day for the past year. I quit for a year before that and the year before that I vaped every day. I notice I get more irritable sometimes and can find that I do not have as positive of an outlook on life. Cannabis gives me a good outlook on the future. I can live without it but I ask myself why if I enjoy it? the year I went without it I did not do anything to change my life. I ended up getting kind of sad again. I think the biggest thing for me is moderation. If I use only when the grunt work is done then I find it not to disrupt much.

    Ended my break of almost 3 months last night. Did a nice dab of some Cherry Pie rosin. Such a sweet & tasty exhale. SOOOOO STOOOOOOOONED! The high kept creeping until it peaked a few hours later. Had the shaky legs & everything. Pretty psychadelic. Been awhile since I woke up w/ a weed hangover! :ko: 1 dab & I was bloody eyed stoned for 7-8 hours.

    Been thinking about how I want to consume going forward & last night sealed it. I decided I'd rather be the type of person who vapes a few times a week, but gets faded af when they do it versus someone who uses everyday but microdoses. I enjoy my concentrate sandwiches & getting lit too much I think to go straight microdosing at this point in time.

    was smoking upwards of 3.5grams a day this year for awhile until last month, bought a solo 2 and saw my usage creep waaaaaay down. i never did take a t break through the switch and have been over due for one. today at 11pm marks 24 hours, and im not gonna inhale any THC until friday after work. hoping this helps my tolerance a bit! (rewarding myself from this T break by ordering a mighty from SB) :D:D:D

    I took a break for 4 weeks when I was travelling as I knew whatever weed I would get there would not be worth the risk. I use small amounts of valium to help with sleep in these situations but I knpw I am not going to get addicted to it - I don't advise this unless you are desperate for some sleep.

    Didn't really notice enough difference to merit removing this pleasure from my life.. but I wish the short term memory drop-outs and reduced dreams wouldn't be the price to pay.
