Occasionally - I'll break out the rig and torch a few times a year for special occasions. More commonly I'll carry a small waxpen when mountain biking or skiing to vape small amounts of shatter for stealth and convenience. Mainly stick to flower.
I mainly stick to flower too cause i find the oils and shatters are just a bit more intense on my lungs - and as a frequent user daily this adds up quickly.
I keep some ALAIR pens around for when we need discrete, higher concentration/potent hits. No fuss no muss and they just work. I dont want to be a technician with a dab kit i just want the convenience when i want it!
Also its easy to rock your system with super high levels of THC if you dab a lot.
Just as a matter of control of intake I find flower is easier to control the amount of THC i intake - again as a heavy user this is probably more of a concern for me vs someone dabbing just a few times a day.
But i've had some side effects from cumulatively too high THC levels so Im scared of making a dab my regular..
Another consideration is the content of the shatter. Most of the stuff that’s out there, online or otherwise, is nasty. Unless it’s produced using the co2 process, I wouldn’t trust it.
If your goal is to get “fucked up”, give ‘er. It’s not for the working man. I’m sitting on a couple of grams of some really clean stuff but every time I look at it, I just reach for the bud instead. ...think I overdid it when it was still a novelty. Lol!
