I am super new to using weed. I knew I was going to have a hard time smoking, so I got a vape. I got the Arizer Extreme q 4.0. First time I used it, not much happened. I did some researching and found that I did not grind the weed enough. So, I tried again last night. This time, I set the temp to 210C (recommended online somewhere), let the weed warm up there for 10 minutes, turned the fan on til I saw some vapor coming out and attached the bag. I took a hit, and it made my throat burn SO bad and I couldn't stop coughing. I drank a lot of water and it wasn't much better. I waited a while and took another big hit, same thing happened. I got a little bit high, but my throat was so sore that it wasn't that fun and then I just got really tired. I live in CA with a MMJ recommendation and was vaping a strain called Blue Dream. So, I have a few questions: 1) Is the sore throat just the way it is with vaping? It wasn't just that it was dry, it was dry and very sore, like I had been screaming for an extended period or something. Is there anything I can do to keep that from happening? 2) Was the tiredness just part of the high? I was told that the Blue Dream strain wouldn't make me tired. Does the tiredness mean that I needed to smoke more (I only did two big hits off the bag), or does it mean that I need to try a new strain? Any other tips would be greatly appreciated!
