    Ive been experimenting with low wattage pod mods and 50 nic juice for a while now. And Im just curious is theres a way to enhance or strengthen your buzz. I already zero the vapor when i inhale, and i know the obvious things like buy something that vapes at a higher wattage. But im just curious, thanks!

    Dissolve a little crystal in your juice, should do the trick.

    You want a better Buzz... try sticking a fork in a electric outlet.

    You and idiots like you are the reason Vaping will be banned or at least treated as Smoking. Go back to Tide Pods and sniffing condoms.

    Try a three tiered approach.

    Buy some copenhagen or other snus. .

    Buy some snuff.

    Have your vape ready.

    Use all three in this order.

    1. Vape normally and continue to vape through the next steps.
    2. Put a big pinch of Copenhagen between your cheek and gums. Leave it there.
    3. Snort some snuff up your nose.

    You'll have the most intense, enhanced and strong nic "buzz" of your life. Try not to puke on your shoes. :)

    Or you could always vape some of that herbaceous material which is becoming legal in more and more places. That's the only way you'll get a "BUZZ". Vaping nicotine is NOT for getting a buzz, it's for staying off cigarettes. and those of us grateful for the opportunity to finally quit smoking without suffering do resent the hell out of children like you who think it's about getting high. It's NOT.

    Honestly, after I got out of the hospital in 2012 and had my first kit waiting for me at home (with both a 20ml bottle of 1.8% Nic and 3.6% nic menthol eliquid) the first thing I thought was:

    "Hey, I haven't smoked in weeks, where's my buzz?" :giggle:

    I had the patch while in the hospital but have had it while there before and even after 2 days i'd feel a little buzz when smoking as SOON as I got out of the hospital.

    I've come to the conclusion that the "buzz" is from one of the OTHER 6,999 known chemicals in cigarettes besides nicotine.

    I suspect it's mostly plain old hypoxia, from the carbon monoxide -- dizziness is a real buzz alright, when you're low on oxygen! :facepalm: You *can* get dizziness from nicotine, sho nuff... and right after, comes nausea and vomiting. Fun times! :giggle:

    This thread is why that many want to ban vaping...

    But banning vaping will not stop the stupidity of youth.
    Neither will not selling spray paint, canned air, WD40, etc to those under 18...
    People determined to be stupid will just be stupid.

    The only thing that will increase a nicotine buzz, that I know of, is length of time since you last vaped.

    I also like the buzz I get in the morning when I first vape - I only vape 20 mg nic salts and lower, and I vape "casually" rather than huff and hold like I'm trying to eke out some magical properties or have fun trying to not pass out. It's just nicotine :giggle:

    If only they'd just lick a wall-socket - well, ok.. Washing one might help, but 220 behind the dryer or stove is better.

    Well hell, I could add flavorings to my 100mg nicotine. But I'm not stupid enough to do that. What others do... don't care one iota. If they're stupid enough to vape 100mg nicotine, the human race is better off without them.

    I don't know how to do this without getting myself into trouble.

    I've tried may things in my lifetime and the "most intense buzz" would have to be a tie.

    1) Pee Cee Pee
    2) That cereal. it's Special (and a LOT OF IT. Enough to reach a hole;))

    I think I may get away with that.

    I'm my mod friends see this tell me.

    By the way You should NEVER do ANYTHING to try to get the "most intense buzz possible" and I am in no way condoning that.

    I can count the number of friends from my old neighborhood where I grew up that have DIED trying to get the "most intense buzz possible" on two hands and one foot.
    Unfortunately I'm afraid I'll be to my last foot by 2020.

    That most intense buzz possible shit is no joke.

    Everything in this thread is nonsense. You absolutely can get a buzz reliably using nic salts. It requires a much higher nic percentage than can comfortably be vaped with freebase. On a 1 ohm cool it's hard to not cough out freebase above 24mg. With nic salts I can easily vape 33mg on that same coil and juul pods are ~60mg.

    I used to chain vape 20mg freebase on a 1.2ohm just to maintain and was getting the shakes after 2 hours without. I mixed some of my own 33mg nic salts and got the headrush back for the first time in 5 years. I now MTL a 60/40 salts/freebase blend at 33mg on a .9 coil @ 18W to get a buzz then stepping down to 12W after the first 2 puffs. Works like a charm and no more chain vaping just to get by or irritated throat.

    I think it's likely from the ammonia. Once got in a small enclosed place using it to clean liquefied sugar off walls and floor. The door to outside that I had propped open had managed to close itself on me. Wound up being hauled out of the room all giddy headed, felt for sure like some "buzz". Would not want to repeat that however.

    Yep, yep, yep.

    Can be deadly serious. Got friends that are gone via that route too. Until recently was afraid a half brother was on the way out. Think he backslid right back to the stuff what makes one speedy. Family has just decided, we watch out for his girls. He knows what it can do, knows it makes him nasty to his girls. It's his choice though. We can't make him not use.

    The last time I got a nic buzz was about a month ago. Before that it was probably over a year. I was having a couple of drinks and started almost chain vaping at 100W. I wasn't really thinking about what I was doing. It was 3mg juice but all of a sudden it hit me. I was like whoa that's enough of that. I don't go chasing nic buzzes. Actually I usually don't even notice I'm using nicotine. I don't think it's responsible to treat vaping like huffing but that's just my take on it.

    Stupid peope can do whatever they want to themselves as far as I am concerned.
    More out of the gene pool.
    We would not have such a bad pill/hard drug problem if Narcan was not as available.
    I have no problem with suicide by stupidity.

    That's exactly why I think ALL psychoactive drugs need to be legal, and cheap -- it would certainly cull a lot of stupidity out of the gene pool.

    You really think these shmoes are doing more drugs since they think they can be brought back from an overdose? I never considered that, but I don’t know anyone that does drugs.

    *double checks his name badge reading "Fred" sees it switch to "Jim"* No, I'm not @The Cromwell. I do feel a need to respond to this question despite that.

    Let my response be framed with a question to you starting out. Are you aware of the Hegelian dialectic? It is often used outside of philosophy in another way.

    Say you have a city block and four small mom and pop shops in that city block. Well you want to profit off these shops but don't want to own them really if you can help it.

    Problem{So, you go hire some thugs to visit each of these shops say every Tuesday for a few months. These thugs can just show up, look menacing and startle off customers, maybe steal a couple hundred bucks of inventory, break stuff and make a mess.}

    Solution{On a Wednesday one month maybe three months of your thugs causing mayhem you show up all decked out in your finest business suit. You talk to these shop owners and mention you can insure that your thugs, but avoid mentioning they are your thugs, will not bother them any more. This insurance comes at a steep cost though. You need paid weekly, say 65% of net.}

    Profit{Eventually these shops realize they cannot keep playing your insurance game. They default and offer you their businesses. You move in and run everything fine because ultimately you can keep turning profit. Nobody can come in and muscle you out, you still got thugs on payroll.}

    It's the same with Narcan. Narcan is a solution to a problem the pharmaceutical companies have created. They hook folks on opioid medications, or have laws set up so that using the most potent and direct opioid is illegal. Tell children they cannot do something, what happens? Holds for adults as well. So, pharmaceutical companies are profiting off selling drugs to hook patients and street junkies on. Then, they also profit selling the "safety net" of Narcan.

    Why educate people that using these medicines to mask pain is bad news? Do that and you lose profits, and educating them costs money to do anyway. Because if you educate them away from the dope you're selling at markup beyond belief, you'll need to educate them about holistic ways to ease pain. Nature doesn't want a vacuum and leaving folks out there hurting without relief/s would be a vacuum.

    So I *looks at name tag sees it switched now to "Bubba"* apologize for cutting in front of @The Cromwell , I felt I had words to put here. Ah well, I didn't cut then. Ha!

    And no, I'm not saying that pharmaceutical companies are the only ones distributing dope. I know there are other distribution means that include individual producers, distributors that operate outside the law at any given. I do think though if the major pharmaceutical companies were brought to heel, there would be a lot less of a dope/drug problem.

    You'll start seeing the Hegelian dialectic used in various alleged problems. It's used heavily in marketing for example. The main thing to watch is the shell reading "who profits/gains?" Keep your eye on that and you'll start to see how society gets ran, abused, left to rot. Those with gold make the golden rule to be cynical and jaded, honest.

    If you still think government won't lie to the people, check out CBD products made from hemp. We got a thread about it here. There's tales of how CBD helps with all manner of ailments. I've found it helps me some. But, the government kept telling us "there's no medicinal value" in this. It's understandable to avoid the psychotropic effects of chamomile yet there's other effects to using chamomile. We still got fed lies.

    I love chamomile, who knew it had any properties other than tasting nice and being relaxing! :giggle:
    The Hegelian Dialectic scenario you describe is the plot of a lot of gangster films and radio shows, oddly enough. But as a means of pressuring and scaring people, it would work.
    And I’m sounding like Bubba’s dumber cousin now!! lol My writing skills have temporarily deserted me. I need chamomile’s secret powers that aren’t in any of my herb books!!

    Ayup, one in the same. It is not restricted to being used in stories, or movies. Humankind's first governing was done by religion. Religion is based off experiment in the form of ritual. "I wake up and smile to the sky, a bright orb appears and warms the land. I wake up and don't smile to the sky, water falls to the earth." Ergo the priests started the ritual in people "smile to the sky for a bright orb day, don't for water falling day".

    This likely come along with first discovering agriculture, farming. Then priests would tell farmers "we the holy ones need ten percent of your crops to keep the god/goddess/gods/goddesses happy so you can grow more". This was the first form of institutionalized/systematic blackmail. What else did the priest do? They ran the village square markets, then banks. Farmers trusted the "holy ones", they would make sure every contract/promise/IOweyoU was honored.

    Of course, humans being humans, corruption soon set in to the "system/governing". "Hey I can say I got 100 rams in the bank vault and use that as means to loan people rams for buying wives/farms/sheep/whatever. Then, the borrower can pay back the rams plus five more rams. I only need to keep ten rams in the bank though. Other bankers will see this and play along because they too get rams."

    Now we've folks on Wall Street that bet against or for debts. It is literally a casino that nobody calls by that name.

    Ultimately too, there's not a great distance between science and religion, science is the religion in power at the moment and really ought to be. Psychotherapy tried being a religion, it failed because people realized the Drowning Pool was correct.



    And yes, chamomile can get rather potent. Some might even tell you it can eat brain cells. Pfft. I'm living proof it doesn't. Still got one of those outmoded IQs of 130 or so, wife laughs at me with her 140 or so. That's for naught though as I've taken my brain out to hide it. Everyone knows if the zombies come they eat brains, so I'll be safe with my brain hidden away. I will survive a zombie apocalypse, I hide my brain, and have no qualms tripping people.

    You made me laugh this morning, thanks! :)

    The religion as control scenario you described developed fully in fairly modern society as the Church. They controlled almost every aspect of life, and I know that you’re familiar with this, so I’ll skip it. Some people would say they reached a high (or low) point with the Crusades, or the Burning Times.

    State controlled religion appeals to me the way the Egyptians had it going on. But I’m looking at it thousands of years later, although it lasted so much longer than Rome’s civil religion.

    And now I have the hiccups!

    Yes, I know about the low points of Christianity and many other religions. Islam is not fully the love and peace as some are inclined to say, nor is it all holy war against all else. Judaism too has it's lows. In my humbled opinion all three of these religions of a book have caused a lot more harm than good. That opinion noted I do know exceptional people that are wonderful human beings from all three religions.

    The Egyptians from what I can recall copied the Sumerians as far as State run religion. They were happy having each city have its own pantheon of deities, all what would now be called Pegan. Of course, there was the national religion of Ra eventually. I think they picked that up from Mithra though, adopted it for their own use with their own spin.

    It's a little funny I know, study all these different stories about who believed what, why, how. Turn around and cuss Janis because I forgot why I come into a room through the vessel of Janis, a door. Janis gave us Janism, not to be confused with the Firefly religion of Jane Cobb. :) Heard today Iron Maiden is retiring. The source I read it from, I feel is credible. Kind of sad but understandably it's time.

    So I listened to an Iron Maiden song and a couple Aveneged Sevenfold songs today. I do believe, in my opinion that A7fold will take the place of Iron Maiden like Air Borne is taking up the slack of AC/DC. Both of those newer bands hit the right "flavor" of the older bands they're "filling into".

    I don't think I've ever listened to Iron Maiden... but my son has acquainted me with A7F and there's a LOT of their stuff I really like! That guitarist is AMAZING. But his most fave, and undoubtedly my own favorite of modern rock, is Shinedown. Absolutely terrific!

    True, new bands lack the zeitgeist (sorry but it’s the only word that I know that covers it) of the original bands.
    I loved Firefly! It was such a fun show. And I saw the movie that was out a while back. (Where Summer became a warrior goddess avatar or whatever! ) Don’t know if there were more.
    Not a big fan of the 3 big organized religions, but they all have something good to offer. Cherry picking yes, but if you do comparative studies of religion and myth, you start noticing the common themes. I loved Joseph Campbell’s approach, but I think you can have a personal and a transcendent god. And agree, the orthodoxy caused a lot of grief!
    Everybody in the ancient world pretty much borrowed from other cultures. Look at Rome with Greece!
    These posts are gonna make a lot of people yawn! Lol

    Somehow I totally missed Heavy Metal growing up. But I’ll look at some vids on YT to see what Shinedown is like. I couldn’t tell you one Iron Maiden song, though.

    I'll suggest you hear their album Brave New World. It was the first sampling of Iron Maiden my wife heard. She stole my CD, had me make up MP3 files of it for her. She's listened to other stuff of theirs but hasn't found any of it whole album liking.

    If your offspring likes A7 fold, he'll like him some Maiden, especially Steve Harris' bass guitar, and Janik Gers' guitar work.

    I love Shinedown as well. They have a style which lets them be open and try anything. Lots of range for them musically and vocally. Hope they continue doing that too, keep other groups unable to compare.

    Wait, wtf? *reads again, nods* Joseph Campbell huh? I'm sure he's not the man that went on and explained the hero's arc, and archetypes. No, not him by any means. He also did not try linking the hero's arc to Jungian psychology, nope not that Joseph Capbell. Nah, couldn't be the one I've never heard about, nope, no way. :)

    You poor sheltered dear. Of course, I'm probably in the same boat as far as Rap, Ska, and all this new Electronic music. I grew up hearing country, old classic country. Got a taste of Beethoven, Bach, Mozart, Vivaldi and thought them lovely in their manner. Also started into some deep blues jazz, big band jazz, swing, flapper jazz. I also listen to various folk music, bluegrass, music from Africa (the country), music from India (just on a wild whim at times), some Mexican music, a very sad love song in Khmer which a Cambodian friend taught me got translated into Chinese, Japanese, Khmer being the language of Cambodia. I also recently started listing to Hueling, Omnia ( a Pegan, Naturalist group). I like Red Hot Chili Pipers (Scottish group using bag pipes) as well as Red Hot Chili Peppers. Been known to like Polka some too. I like Concrete Blonde too.

    I'm just an extremely eclectic person. Not for lack of trying, I don't play any instruments nor sing. Did try learning to read music but could not catch onto it too well. Probably funny a poet says that, but it's true for me.

    I'm as eclectic in people who become my friends. Have walked with kings, dined with the poorest. People are people. There's positive and negative in every walk of life. I try seeing the best in people, sometimes I see it even if they don't and try giving out their worst instead. Death doesn't care about religion, politics, creed, color, nationality, ethnicity, gender, sexual orientation ... who am I to care if death doesn't? People are people, hard to make that simpler.

    Iron Maiden songs to look up Hallowed Be Thy Name , The Trooper, Powerslave, Rime of the Ancient Mariner (yes they borrowed from Coleridge).

    Shinedown: Barrel of a 45, , Heroes , Second Chance , Enemies, Sound of Madness, Simple Man (a Lynard Skynyrd cover)

    I checked out Omnia and listened to “I Don’t Speak Human” and it was really good! I used to listen to some pagan music years ago, but it got mainstreamed too much. There’s a bunch of Instagram witchy types that bug a lot of serious pagans, but it’s younger kids attracted to the “style” of it. Millennials, what can I say?
    I figured you were familiar with Campbell. I would have loved to have him as a professor in College. And Jung was eons ahead of Freud, imho.
    I meant cherry picking ideas from different religions and cultures. More interesting to me that way.

    Your musical taste is a lot like mine, actually. Cool!

    Wow, I just found out that I won a mod in a contest! I’m amazed. :giggle: I play the word games since I like them, but I never expected to win for real.
    And yes, I’m jumping all over the place. Sorry. The last two weeks have been an utter drag. I’m finally getting some good sleep which helps some. Heat like we’ve had feels like kryptonite to me. lol

    That was my over exaggerated point. My sarcasm missed. I'm quite familiar with Campbell, Card, Heinlein, Hammett, Gibson (Walter Gibson not Gibson guitars), Ursula K. Le Guin, Margret Atwood, Edgar Allen Poe, Joseph Addison, and possibly a host or so of others I've read over the years.

    When going to elementary/grade school I read nearly if not everything in the library there for children. The librarians got books from the high school library for me, read most if not all of those by about the time I was to enter middle school, read then all the middle school library.

    Then, I got into reading college level literature, treatments, essays so on. In middle school I had a teacher that was brought up by her mother, a teacher as well, with the classic liberal arts education. She directed me to transliterate Beowulf from Greek to German, to finally "oh here is an English copy."

    No, I don't know German despite the Mennonites trying to teach it, in our children's indoctrination. I can transliterate but that's not speaking the language or knowing it. You use dictionaries, thesaurus other lexical reference to transliterate.

    Also in middle school I got into an advance reader study/group. Authors wrote short stories, novels, sent them out for critique/editing. I read all kinds of stuff, King, Koontz, and some other modern folks here and there. Read a series of books by Lustbader at ten to thirteen, he kept me waiting, he couldn't finish writing the books quick enough. I like reading some Sheldon at times as well.

    I have kind of gotten exhausted on reading though. I sit down and read five minutes, out like a light. Of course, I've also read comic books and think Stan Lee did a fair job of portraying the Holocaust in a modern setting by creating the X-Men. Granted no one in that sphere may admit to that, but I can observe it and if I'm wrong I apologize.

    Correlation, correlation what's your function? Hook it all together point A to point B, draw the lines and connect the dots. Seems I do too much of that too. Then something like raisins come along and go dancing on tv to some jazzy tune, and there's a train wreck. Damn things make me want to hide in the closet. Which isn't nice of them.

    love iron maiden

    steve harris is a bass god, invented to gallop style

    and he plays off against the drummer well

    my modern band is gojira. French metal, oddly with environmental themes touching on global warming etc. Not what you'd expect from a metal band

    Thanks, Haze. Liked it more than Omnia pretty much. I thought of my favorite old anime Ghost in the Shell.

    Hope it’s not feeling like 100deg where you are, like it is here!

    Is that like normal metal or doom metal (whatever it’s called!) BTW, your description of your childhood tallies with mine in a lot of ways. Except being in a private school and being a girl, I was expected to be decorative instead of smart. Not both ever!

    *natural low graveled voice* "Fuck. You didn't know?"

    Not sure exactly. I would just think of calling it good Heavy Metal. Iron Maiden is often accused of having Death Metal, or Judas Priest even. To me Heavy Metal is Heavy Metal, except in the case of Speed Metal and possibly Industrial. Speed Metal I think goes back to the East German group Accept who influenced Metalica and possibly Anthrax.

    Punk? That anything like Social Distortion, The Offspring, Papa Roach, Blind Melon, Sex Pistols, Space Hog?

    I think you fell into a metal and punk mosh pit here. I say this because at one time AC/DC was considered both Punk and Metal, in fact they kind of led the way for bringing both genre together. Though I'm sure there's still hard core punk and hard core metal.

    Yes, those are pretty much punk bands. Throw in The Stranglers, X Ray Specs, The Cramps, Mink DeVille, even The Clash, but they’re are a whole bunch.
    I don’t know any AC/DC, being sheltered as a kid and all!! LoL
    I’m not so anal about musical genres anymore, though. My dh really turned me on to a lot of music I would never have listened to, like old country, and the Dead.

    my only response to this tread title as it currently stands is... if you have to called it a buzz then perhaps your using the wrong: device, word, liquid, brain cell, or forum... that is not all just a small list of things that i am sure others here have expanded on.

    AC/DC album to look up: Highway to Hell It's an older album it was released on 27th of July, 1979. It is back when Bon (Bon Scott) was still on this side of the ground. Then on 25th July, 1980 Back in Black was released with He Who Shall Not Be Named (Brian Johnson) doing vocals. I used to like Grateful Dead. Gotten away from them, now.
