    Hey guys,

    So I invested in a volcano vape a while ago but never made the commitment to only use the vap and not smoke. I have now started using it instead of smoking my bong like 5 times a day. I noticed since switching to vape only 2 days ago I have been coughing up black phlegm (sorry for the gross factor)... Ive also noticed my lungs feel a lot lighter and less irritated, more rested.

    I feel like today vaping has got me more stoned than yesterday yet im vaping on a lower temp (190 as opposed to 200). Im thinking... could the vapor be cleaning my lungs out enabling me to absorb more thc, etc.? Or is it simply that vaporizing lowers your tolerance?

    I have some butter setting in the fridge from my recent batch of abv, i feel like if i have an edible on this tolerance i will be flyyyyying!! :D

    Most heavy smokers that I know cough up a lot of junk the first few days - a week (maybe longer) after switching to just vapor. I experienced this for about two weeks after switching.

    cool, also, i just ate half the butter with straight up nutella (gave the other half to my brother). 20 minutes in and im already feeling it a lot :D its a nice feeling, very different to how i was when i was smoking with a high tolerance.. edibles would just make me sleepy now i feel more euphoric :D

    Apparently smoking paralyzes the cilia, preventing them from pushing the gunk out of one's lungs, but once one is not smoking, the THC has an expectorant effect, which would cause more productive coughs.

    How thoroughly do you process your herbs before calling them ABV? (kind of informs how much goodies may remain)...

    I usually put around 0.3-0.4 into my Ascent by Davinci Portable Vape, one sesh for around 12 minutes. It is pretty dark, resembles coffee grounds when it is done.

    I have to defer to the advice of other Davinci owners...

    But with Dark Coffee Ground-colored ABV, my guess would be 1/2 to one tablespoon per serving.

    That's very subjective. You looking to elevate, or melt into the furniture? Regardless, here's some info from a Really Good Source! Hope it helps!

    hey guys, enjoying vaping so far still, I find that being in class while high on vape today I felt a LOT more stoned than I did with bong hits? lol

    And btw I used a small amount to make my butter. I used HALF a stick of butter with about 4 grams of weed. I vape from 190c - 200c

    @DDave I am trying that recipe you sent me, I am using a fair amount of stems, and only around 1/3 of a cup of ABV, obviously all I have. My ABV is a little darker then the forementioned recipe as well, so I added around 0.8 Gram of Keif straight out of my grinder, and like I said before i am using a fair amount of stems. I have found other similiar recipes while browsing and I have seen numerous amounts of ABV used. I know I am not really using that much, but with the added amount of stems and keif, I hope to get a great medicated feel still :lol:

    This does not have to knock me on my ass, since my girlfriend and I have both had kind of bad edible trips, I guess you could say, and only really want a mild sedative brownie, It doesn't have to knock me on my fucking ass, for me to be happy, put it that way :)

    hey @farcus2323 , Good luck with the culinary efforts! Keep track of everything you do, so it will be easier to report back results and make adjustments to future efforts.

    If you're looking to make a "sleepy" brownie, then my suggestions would be (if you don't already have one) a fairly accurate temperature-adjustable vaporizer. That way you can skim the majority of THC from your herbs for daytime sessions that are elevating, but not heavy. Then the ABV you will generate "could" be mostly sedative as far as effects. At least that's what I have found. I vape at 175C max, during the daytime, then save and use the ABV at up to 230C at night time (and what's left in the herb at that point is mostly sedative, maybe pain killing too, as after a session of this stuff it's soon time to call it a night.

    Good luck! & Bake..., uh, I mean Vape ON! :rockon:
