    Hey, I've met people who say the same thing. Some of them just assume that vaporizers won't get you as high because you're not burning all the weed and I just attribute that to their bias. If they don't think it will work, they'll probably deny the fact that they're as high or higher than normal.

    I assume you don't feel that way since you're willing to try at least. How much do you smoke/how often? One possibility is you just have a high tolerance. Even more likely though is the setting/your mood. Some days I'm higher than others just because I'm in a relaxed or happy mood.

    I say give it a few more tries maybe even in different places. Good luck! :thumbsup: Vaporizers are great!

    the settings could be wrong on the vape, or it couls have not been fully heated up.

    The vapor high is different, and it's common to think you're not getting as high. And depending on your definition of 'high', maybe you're not. You don't get less THC with vapor. If anything, you get more. You do miss a couple of high temp cannabinoids, but they're not psychoactive. What you do miss with vapor, unless your temp is way high, are some toxic compounds. Carbon monoxide and benzene both contribute to the drowsy, laid out effect attributed to the mj high. And another, Toluene, is a solvent that can dissolve paint, rubber, and some types of glues. Inhaling Toluene can be intoxicating in small doses.

    So what you get with vapor is a cleaner high. If you can tolerate smoke (I can't, on a regular basis), and really miss the extra 'goodies' you get with combustion, you may want to switch or supplement your vapor with smoke at times, depending on what effect you're looking for.

    IMO vape gives you more of a mind high while smoke will give you a body high.

    Yeah you get what you pay for. Those little crack pipe type vapes are the hardest to use. They probably turn more people away from vaporizers than all the electric models that aren't up to par. It's like rubbing two sticks together to start a fire. It can be done, but if you don't do it just the right way you'll never get a flame. :(

    currently visiting pals on the west coast.. they echo the theme of this thread.. hard to convince them otherwise...

    on the plus side I got to test out their Vapir One.. interesting machine.. I like the digital readout.. obvious similarities to theOxygen.. not sure i like or need the blower thingy.. but it is an effective machine. Definitely does the trick. My hosts however remain somewhat skeptical..

    must say that road tripping with the Oxygen is a great way to go.

    A miniscule amount got me almost a thousand miles.

    Here is my theory. Vaporizing is not so harsh and leaves your throat feeling fairly unaffected. Smoking tears your throat apart and creates cracks and sores that offer direct contact to your blood stream. Burning gets the THC into your system faster and easier resulting in a more intense body high. Whatever can't get absorbed makes it to the lungs like usual but I would think there would be some delay. I think that vaporizing forces all the THC to go into your lungs which distributes the effects differently then direct contact with the blood stream. Haa. Or not

    Doesn't take 2 bills for a good one Tank. You can get a Vaporwarez Vaporcannon from several different dealers on ebay for $120 with free shipping and some extras. And yes, you get the 5 yr. warranty too. :thumbsup:

    i dont like the vapes with the bags because it has to
    much air in it and dilutes the thc with air
    , the vapezilla is better , its more concentrated
    vapor , closer to smoking :Rasta:

    Something like the SSV (really potent hits IMO) is even better than the Vapezilla for concentrated vapor, since the zilla also constantly pushes air through the unit with the fans.

    I sort of think, for me, the purpose is comfort and pain control: Vapes do it! Some have really long tubes on them, I'd think a shorter tube or suck harder! You'll either be light headed or whatever it is you want! IN all seriousness, if it helps what you are using it for, that is the best thing! I get high from just lower levels of pain! I can do so much more and am so much happier! Just a thot! Take care and good luck!:hippy:
