    It was all about taste and smell for me in addition to the health benefits. I have always been disgusted by the taste of smoking cigs/blunts, so decided to give vaporisers a try and fell in love with this world.

    the taste of smoking doesn't bother me, I can barely smell combusted weed. But it's a huge bonus for stealth. Vaping with an M will be great to microdose with, hopefully. Guess efficiency and stealth are more important than health to me

    I never got the point of spliffs, don't like tobacco. I hit a strong cigarette like a joint once and it just made me really dizzy and nauseous, lol. burnt tobacco smells so much worse than burnt cannabis to me... definitely glad I don't have a nicotine addiction

    Same here but with bongs,pipes and joints:cool:. I never really did enjoy joints to tell you guys the the truth particularly the fact that you stink after a joint. As a combuster I fancied myself as a bit of flower connoisseur until I tried the Mighty......mind blown:doh::love:

    I had rolled some joints with a rolling machine, and they were so stiff... really sucked. stiff joints are the worst experience i've ever had smoking weed lol. should've broken up the weed with my fingers.

    I use to get 2 to 3 sinus infections every year, which would always lead to a prescription of antibiotics; since I started vaping (and steaming with oregano oil) I am no longer plague those nasty symptoms.

    I originally thought it would be better to smoke less for health but then vaping had the effect of spoiling smoking. Now it seems to me that vaping is the only way to get the full aromatic experience of the herb. It's like a choice between burnt toast and toast. I have my last bit of white deisel and it's such a beatiful flavour, I can't imagine smoking it.
    I've become a flavour snob I guess lol.

    How true ! I have never got used to, or taken for granted, the beautiful flavours of vaporized flowers. I still get excited when I acquire a strain I haven't tried before, mainly in anticipation of how it will taste.

    When I first started vaping I told my friend I didn’t want to become a vape snob. Well one week with my “new toy” and I couldn’t go back to smoking. A vape snob was born I suppose. Fast fwd a few years and a few thousand dollars and I’m still trying to quench that VAS thirst. I’m still unsure just how healthy any of it is.

    Its risk tolerance for many, an example would be motorcycle helmets. Some folks just love to ride without them and accept the risks posed by their choice, on the other hand there are folks who know that their odds of surviving some falls are just better in the bucket. Both groups are happy with their choices and everything is cool till the "your wrong and I am right" debate starts at which points it stops being happy and turns into the other guy being wrong.

    It was coughing up the black tar that finally did it. Would get chest pain from coughing. Energy was always low. Was chasing a high all day that i couldn't even enjoy. As soon as the effects of combustion poison would wear off I would poison myself again with carbon monoxide. Combustion is a sickness that makes yourself sick. The benefits have been BEYOND belief. It truly is a Before/after event. My life before and after A) fucking combustion B) Vaporizing cannabis has been changed for the better in countless ways :) I agree that in order to really get the benefit of vaporization on MUST %100% FUCK combustion. Otherwise it defetes the entire purpose, and you will never "get it" because you haven't detoxed form the poison. If you won't do it for yourself, than please do it for the Herb, have some respect for the ganga, if not for yourself.

    Smashing your skull on the pavement is very bad for your brain. A helmet would help minimize the damage so its better than smashing your bare skull. Consuming combustion will poison your body, and minimize/negate the beneficial effects including the THC "high". Vaporization has arguably ZERO negative effects on your health, and will MAXIMIZE the potency and effect of your herb. For sure, 'to each their own" but there is a "right way" and a "wrong way". The right way to Vape is to %100% FUCKCOMBUSTION and commit to Vaping only. You MUST STOP SMOKING

    You missed the point of my post.

    The point was risk tolerance not health and safety.

    A few negatives for vaping have been related to a fireman going into hot buildings breathing hot air for long periods of time ... if someone vaped hot air all day long with dry herb vapes that run hot and burn the throat etc then a bubbler can be used to cool and condition the vapor some..

    and this is just my opinion and compared to chemotherapy LOL... smoking kills off germs/microbes, pesticides etc... more quickly than a fresh flavorful pull on a just started vape with all those fungus tastes and musk... that first hit from organic earth grown flower :leaf: puts you in the soil Man and introducing all types of genetic information to your DNA...
    Once the flavor is absorbed and heat from the vape takes over it becomes more of a biochemical experiment and bio-molecular transference
    Smoking just clouds all that and makes dirty ...

    Love long distance at flood stage, 25 miles in 2 hours is quite the ride. Even though the cases we sell are shock proof and water proof, it always is helpful to have a backup in a backup in a backup for those nasty unplanned swims. Doesn't take much to compromise a seal and sometimes a Ziplock is clutch inside of a rated submersible case.

    On topic, if you look at some of the old Volcano studies from years ago, I'm much more comfortable with a handful or two of substances entering my system whereas smoking delivered a hundred + of some not so bio-compatible chemicals.

    I think the risk of vaping lies in the weed itself.
    SO vaping is not to blame.
    The weed must be pure without residues of fertilizer or additives from the black market.

    Ok, deeply breathing in hot, dry air in the lungs cant be good.
    thats a point.

    I think a watertool that is cleaned on a regular basis would be benefitial.

    I conclude: Vaping is not healthy but it surely beats the hell out of combustion.
