    Yeah, switching between vapes seems important to me as well. Not that I lose potency...I just get bored.

    I have my pax 3 I just have not used it in awhile. I don’t even drink wine so that could be why I never liked it or felt that way when I got the mighty. Actually now my night is back lately to not working as well yet 2 nights in a row I got incredibly stoned an hour and a half after vaping and even in my cherry like haze I was stoned for a solid 4 hours and when I say that I literally mean the buzz fades away I feel like I’m back to normal then boom hour/1.5 later I guess it’s the stone that kicks in I can’t describe. Pain relief still only lasted about an hour hour a half tops but the other feeling and relaxation/stress relief lasted a solid 4. I should just buy another vape for a backup to switch back and fourth between. I just can’t afford desktops.

    The fury and vapcap are inexpensive possible backups. Also the splinter is about $130 and you can get very inexpensive box mods.

    I wonder if you tried concentrates
    I say that because that's the only decent option. I'm not doing pills ,tinctures etc.
    The oil is good,thank god. I'm in mn and sad to say I have no option for bud.,so my state program is it.
    But variable temp batteries are nice mn

    Vaporizing activates cannabinoids at controlled temperatures. The higher you go in temp, the more cannabinoids reach their boiling point. Combustion is the same chemical process but at temps that are not controlled (around 800f). You get a big blast of all the cannabinoids at once, which is the difference you perceive. However, smoking is not efficient and you sacrifice a lot of actives (25-30%) due to pyrolysis and sidestream smoke. Not to mention flavor. Over the course of a vape session, you absorb more cannabinoids, just not the immediate big blast you get from combustion. If that’s what you crave and value, stick to smoking or do dabs instead. “Holding the smoke in” is irrelevant.

    i've collected and have a bunch of vapes and they all have different characteristics but I'll say that the humble and simple MFLB probably gets me the highest even though the clouds are always wispy at best. Takes a few tries to get the hang of it and herb should be dry and very finely ground to a salt like consistency; it never fails to deliver in spades. It's also one of the cheapest vapes around and they usually go for around 50 in the used market (here, ebay and cragistlist) so I'd check it out if this piques your interest.

    "Inconsistent" is not the first adjective that comes to mind to describe my last session.:hmm:
    I took such a slap in the face ...:rofl:

    This will echo what others have said but some weed just vapes weird.

    I’ve got some flowers right now that I feel gives me a better high out of my Crafty, than when using my IQ. Same temps.

    Also, try some concentrates and see how that works for you.

    A temperature indicated on one vape is not transferrable to a different vape. In my mind temperatures on vapes are there so with a particular vape you may have a repeatable experience. Ideally the temperature is a way of knowing where you are on the THC to CBD spectrum, but I am a touch skeptical that many our vapes are capable of accurately gauging the temperature at the material. How many vapes have a thermocouple nestled in with your herbs? I do suspect some manufacturers do a better job than others of insuring relative accuracy of the temperature displayed at your herbs, but I think I would be remiss to tell someone 385 F is the same on their IQ as it is on their Crafty.

    Flavor is surprising to me?
    I make my selection on a vapes ability to deliver taste.
    I’t’s not acceptable to many? (Some just care about clouds?)
    I measured heat once in my working life.
    Location of your sensor is very important for accuracy?
    You would think vape companies would employ people qualified?

    I’m about to just quit all together. I’m starting to wonder if weed is what’s making me sick with major headaches and throwing up.

    the sensible thing to do might be to take a break and see what happens.

    Last night I got incredibly high again off a small hit 3 and a half hour after my previous one. So I’m not sure what’s going on. Felt like I drank all night and I didn’t. I don’t know what was worse The high even though it was intense but didn’t feel too over powering just kept going in and out of it or the non stop freezing then getting so hot sweating and shaking for a solid 2-3 hours.

    Definitely something amiss here. Health issue or something foreign in your herb?

    Headaches ? Throwing up ? Nonstop freezing, then hot sweats ? Shaking for 2 - 3 hours ? That sounds like a medical emergency. Medical care might be more appropriate than guessing at the problem. It sounds like people at the shops have tried to help, people in the threads have tried to help, but if there is a serious medical problem, as you seem to be describing, you need to get that sorted out with medical care. The symptoms sound awful. I can't imagine shaking for hours, with hot flashes, headache and vomiting, and not wanting help so I could get better and have it not happen again. What you are doing isn't working for you, from what you describe. Why continue ?

    I agree with @Madri-Gal, you should probably see a doctor. However, you might also seek the advice of Dr. Google on "dumping syndrome".

    Only think I can think of right off the back that’s sifferent is going back on allergy pills. I’m going to the doctor next week too see what’s going on with other things like the throwing up. I know it doesn’t help the way I at least was under the impression it would. Aside from the way I get my self worked up lately with anxiety thinking it’s cancer or some bs that I shouldn’t be worrying about it usually is great for killing my anxiety. But yeah even my heart was racing fast. I’m sure thc content wouldn’t have much to do with it but the strain that did it was holy grail kush 15% tested st but it was so dense and frosty and had such a rich diesal smell that is so over powering makes me wonder if it creeped up cuz they don’t constantly re test each harvest It’s a one and done.

    As far as the headaches and throwing up that has been going on a few months now the shaking was just from last night. It ramped up and got worse after I smoked acdc cbd to try and being myself back a little bit. It’s when I was laying down trying to sleep that it was at its worst. As long as I was up and moving it seemed to fade.


    Actually just read an article sounds like thc and cbd don’t always get along with each other. Thc can cause temporary minor hypothermia but not the medical attention one like actually being cold, and with cbd it actually raises your body temperature called cannabis induced hyperthermia or something like that.

    I'm sorry. This happened to me "sometimes" when I smoked hashish. Maybe your weed contains too much THC?

    That’s what I was wondering it’s only supposed to be 15% but it honestly reminded me of blueberry kush when I had it at 28% and the bud this time was loaded with crystals and lied every where with a very unusual strong powerful diesale fuel type aroma. Actually the last time I got blueberry kush from this place it had less of a blueberry smell to it as well and a different odor and taste. Unless that’s just how kush strains are and can always be different. All though a few days ago I was shocked that I never got high but I did feel another intense feeling off strictly cbd I was fine after my first draw but it was not enough to help my headache so I took a 2nd draw 15 minutes later and once again that made me feel a little weird. Not high just hard to describe the feeling like a deep intense relaxation in a daze I guess. Only other thing I can come up with I forgot about is I drank a carnation breakfast drink not the powder version then vaped again few minutes later. Unless the dispensary be is screwing up the labels and strains or somethings going on. If there’s one thing I learned take away what ever I’m feeling lately pot has been so much better then Xanax Ridilin and other anxiety drugs I tried. And even though I love dilaudid that’s steictly after major surgeries weed can’t or has not topped that level of pain relief but it does too and beat Tylenol 3 and other weaker pain killers I had.if I even vape tonight or smokenim not taken another allergy pill even though it’s non drowsy (Claritin), it kind of reminds me of the time I was in blood pressure medication 10 months ago or so kind of felt similar to it for blood clot.


    Well as an update I think I may have found the cramping/stomach pain and Nasua issue. This damn protein shake drinks. Carnation breakfast essiantials. I was fine had one 20 minutes later kind of sick as a dog and only drank half of it, and I have not touched weed all day.

    I hear switching it up helps for boredom...no one is thinking you lose potency. The important thing is not to worry about it...and, you know, switching it up, which you are doing anyway. Boredom, that's the problem.

    Not trying to be funny here, but it sounds like possibly poor quality weed or you not smoking enough of it (or a little of both). Try smoking an entire bowl in the Mighty and see if you get high, not many vaporists I know can get high off of 1 hit of anything besides concentrates. Especially since your first 2 hits off of most hand held vapes are wispy, the Mighty really only hets going on hit #3.

    If all else fails, take a dab of tasty concentrates, sit back , relax, and enjoy the high.
    I moved from Heavy smoking to heavily vaping flower, now I rarely touch flower and dab concentrates . It feels cleaner and like a lot less work, plus the taste is fantastic these days. if you really just want to take 1 hit and be done try some Sauce, diamonds, Shatter, Rosin, wax, crumble, et. use it in a device made for concentrates (not the mighty pad or any flower vape except the flowerpot or Evo) and you will be satisfied i'm sure.
