So, I don't smoke that often so I don't have much of a tolerance. The main reason is that it makes me cough like crazy.

Well a friend brought over a vape and I vaped Way more than I should have (I underestimated the potency) and I woke up with flu symptoms that got progressively worse throughout the day.

I would normally think it was a coincidence, but it's happened to me before. Is there any reason for this?

Nah the flu is probably worse. You got too high for your tolerance. With a vape you need to take it verrryyy slow cuz ya get higher off lower amounts. Also try to eat like some hours before too cuz sometimes smokin on an empty stomach can ef you up. Keep a bottle of agua too. I hate getting too high and sick(i cant stress that enough)

Flu symptoms? Yes

-Extreme tiredness
-Cough/sore throat
-Runny nose

But it won't give you a flu if that's what you meant.

smoking can temporarily paralyze cilia which causes flu like symptoms, or sinus infections.
