Hey Gang, I have been a long time vaper (herb only) 2yrs plus, and now I have had to stop
My throat is all weird now and I notice I am having a hard time swallowing things as in when I eat or drink.
This happened once before approx 7 yrs ago and went away.
I am wondering if this could be what I hear tell of called Vape Throat, has anyone else had this or something similar happen
Thks

hmmm , you may want to see and Ear , Nose , and Throat specialist or at least a regular doc

i hope it is nothing serious and it clears up.....maybe you need to abstain for a week or so , or vape less flowers?

i used to wake up with phlegm in my throat , hocked up a few loogies and I was good to go....that was when I was smoking a lot of joints

switched over to vaping oil about 6-7 years ago and the phlegm disappeared

less tokes with the oil and better results , lowered inflammation , lowered aches and pains , and in general , a better attitude

and of course I suffer from all the side effects of vaping oil , happy , hungry , and sleepy

i wish you all the best

You have fucked up your esophagus bro. Eat soft foods and stay away from hot coffee and such until it heals. Ive been dealing with it for yrs. I sleep in a recliner because of it.

Thanks Big
Been that route before and after being probed poked and prodded I have had it, they found nothing.
Doc said it was in my head and I almost threw him out the window. I said crazy I'll show you crazy.
I also think I have some kind of skin pocket in my esophagus that catches food particles and such.
Had a scope done as well as Barium swallow test all neg.

Yep yep yep, I have a adjustable bed that I put the head end up a few inches , but man this time is bad.
They said Gerg , but it felt more like a pea stuck in there Drives me Friggin Crazy.
But I think you are correct, Did it affect your ability to breath through your nose at night lying down?

Another interesting thing. I use a vape pen when on the go. Much easier than messing with a pipe and lighter. However, I don't get a buzz from a pen. I can suck on the daumn thing till I am blue in the face and it feels like smoking Kansas brick weed.

I found vaping harder on my breathing parts and more irritating so gave up. Another thing, and I seem to have noticed the same thing with home made edibles is that the buzz is always the same, not like smoking the same weed at all. Plus, I don't really enjoy it, more mind race sativa-like effects. My theory is that somewhere in the process I'm losing some of the terpenes. Many gas off at lower temps, like maybe when weed is baked at 240 to activate the thc for edibles?

For on the go, I like the GRAV Labs Glass Blunt. When I tried vaping, I also had a portable Iolite which worked fairly well, but the buzz was off for me.

I have read articles that say when vaping, you are not supposed to inhale it, just hold in your mouth. Hard for me to do after smoking joints for 53 years, not to mention cigs. Which I quit 12 years ago.

Never heard that one. I doubt hardly any THC would be absorbed sublingually in the mouth unlike a tincture would do.. Thanks Loop

I have heard similar. But, inhale light. Don't take a huge hit, suck in in deep and hold it. I just don't get a buzz.

Another Vaper (weed) I know told me he exhales through his nose without breathing into lungs and he gets very high
