Quote from: Jackstar on February 27, 2020, 02:06:21 PMI'd say the major part is simply the inhalation of high temperature vapor and air. The purpose in vaporizing oil/wax is to deliver an extremely high load of cannabinoids all at once, thus obviating the need to smoke bowl after bowl of flower in order to get a heroic dose. Going that route on the regular is going to lead to the easily foreseeable consequences from scalded mucous membranes (as well as dramatically ramping up one's tolerance, which gets expensive fast). Note that weed has pain-relieving effects, and a good hit will simultaneously relieve the pain caused--but the tissue damage will still be happening regardless of whether the user feels it or not.There is also a concern with wax/oil residue remaining in the lungs. The cilia are meant to move particles up and out, and the coughing helps with that, but inevitably, chronic inhalation of hot wax/oil is going to lead to build-up in the tissues, and the cilia get paralyzed with frequent blasts of THC/CBD. This is not a fully harmless consequence.That said, it's also not that big a deal, assuming the user is not whiffing seven-gram-dabs twelve times a day. Responsible use is, in general, easily repairable by the body. Irresponsible long-term abuse will lead to lung scarring. The ways around this are, to take a break for at least a month after about three months of daily use, and to be cautious about any other contaminants one might be inhaling.I've met people who swear by the efficacy of the butane for extraction. It is cheap, reliable, relatively easy to handle, and leaves enough butane behind that vaping it will enhance and modify the high. You know, like huffing glue. Sure, inhale lighter fluid--what could go wrong? With me, I simply never liked the taste, so after a few weeks of shatter use and study, I ended up banning it from my experience. No regrets. In Seattle, I've seen the popularity and availability of butane extracted products drop sharply over the last few years, as it is really not that much harder to use other methods--assuming one isn't pouring butane over one's black market weed in the trunk of a car parked in a Wal-Mart. Unlicenced producers are happy to use anything that can be procured discreetly. And cigarette smokers who have been using butane lighters to spark up twenty times a day tend to have a real taste for butane. I've met a few shatter fiends--not many now that I've given up cigarettes--and it's like they're addicted to Bic lighters or something. Crazy!Pure butane would be bad enough. But the butane that is used is typically not acquired in cans that say "100% butane, lab-tested". It's typically sourced from industrial supply. It's a roll of loaded dice as to what is actually in there, it could be 80% butane and the rest "other petrochemical by-products." I'm getting the nightsweats right now, just thinking about it.Something I think you should do a little research on, is what's sometimes called "low-temp dabbing." There's an optimum temperature range at which the cannabinoids boil off into inhalable vapor, and it's much lower than what people tend to use, because managing the temperature is a real hassle without specific gear. Also--and this is key--when the substance is put onto the hot vaper, the hot vaper cools off, and this interferes with the smooth release of the cannabinoid compounds. There's at least dozens or maybe hundreds of different cannabinoid and terpene compounds in any sample of weed, and they all have slightly different characteristics. Some are fragile and will simply burn off and become inert if the temp is too high, and others only completely transition when at a ten or twenty degree temperature range, and need to stay within that range for perhaps as long as five or ten seconds in order to be fully consumed.So, it's a mess, and one way to deal with that is to have an electronically controlled heating element attached to your nail or bowl or whatever, and then to place a carburetor cap on top of it so as to create a heat chamber at the appropriate temp. This makes a huge difference to the experience, as the temperature of the inhalation will be much lower, and more of the good stuff will be available as vapor. Done right, one can even still taste the subtle differences from the terpenes, which is a highly desirable outcome.I'm gonna assume that you're referring to Richard Pryor here, but let's be honest; it could be a few other names.

Quote from: Jackstar on March 12, 2020, 04:41:19 PM3 weeks on, 1 week off--3 days on, 1 day off. 3 years on, and one year off, no advantage there. It's best to take regular, routine breaks.Chronic, uninterrupted use leads inevitably to well-documented results. I'll be honest, it's not terrible nor challenging to recover from, but unless you're being funded by some government agency, it ends up being a real drag.I'm marked for death in several geographic regions across the globe, just for that one post. You're welcome. I'm here to help.
QuoteProfessor Raphael Mechoulam, also known as the â€œfather of cannabis research,â€ revealed his latest discovery, cannabidiolic acid methyl ester (EPM301), only a few months ago. The introduction of this new, patented compound (synthetic, fully stable acid-based cannabinoid molecules) caused a wave of excitement around the future of medicinal cannabis.
QuoteBut he also warned of the importance of classifying and regulating drugs correctly for their medical use, in order to avoid unwanted side effects.â€œCompanies should be careful when they're taking compounds and claiming therapeutics. They need to do it in accordance with the regulation in order to create consistency in the language...because people confuse recreational use with the medicinal use and arenâ€™t necessarily looking to a specific indication, with specific dosing,â€ he ended.
Quote from: Jackstar on May 20, 2020, 12:07:43 PMWhat you frauds have done to this thread, makes me wish I could quit weed again. Perhaps I'll have a puff or two tonight, and then grind it out in a greasy ashtray. I bet I can find one around here.

QuoteEven when taken for the first time, psychedelics may occasion powerful subjective experiences that share many features with those described by mystics, dedicated meditators, and religious practitioners," psychologist Samuli Kangaslampi from Tampere University in Finland told PsyPost."Some research is beginning to demonstrate that undergoing a mystical-type experience may be linked to improved relationships with self, others, and the natural environment later on."

QuoteNIA's #1 overall pick for 2021 BetterLife Pharma (CSE: BETR) has announced this morning that it has applied for patent protection of its new 2-Bromo-LSD formulation TD-0148A and its use in the treatment of Major Depressive Disorder (MDD). BETR is beginning its pre-clinical work on TD-0148A in preparation for a Pre-IND Meeting with the FDA in March, which will allow BETR to file its IND to launch clinical trials of TD-0148A for the treatment of MDD later this year!MindMed (MMEDF) had its Pre-IND Meeting with the FDA on December 14th regarding the development of LSD-assisted therapy for anxiety disorder. In the three months leading up to MMEDF's Pre-IND Meeting, its share price gained by 1,382% from $0.34 per share to a high of $5.07 per share on the day of the meeting. At MMEDF's high of $5.07 per share its market cap reached US$1.653 billion. BETR's current market cap is only US$79.69 million.Past performance is not an indicator of future returns.
