Weed

Recommended Posts

Never cared for it. It always used to make me feel slow and sleepy and sick. I never felt a single positive emotion/sensation from it. Haven't touched it in nearly 20 years so it really was never a thing for me at any rate. Had a few friends who were mad for it though, but I just couldn't understand what they were on about. 

Give me a pint of beer and a goddamn Mayhem record. Or a white wine and a HIM c.d.

I like weed, but I drink way more often than I toke.

The last time I was high, a few weeks ago, I was in a bar (so, drunk at the same time, great combo), I had that THC wax for the first time, and I wound up so far gone I accidentally draped my overcoat over the bouncer's head trying to navigate to the bathroom. It was about that time I had to call a taxi to get home before I got myself shot, but I wound up asking him to drop me off just three buildings down to get some Taco Bell, then walked about a mile and a half back home in sub-zero weather because I'd forgotten it was acceptable to call a taxi company more than once.

When I finally did make it back home, I spent about an hour and a half trying to watch TV and listen to Megadeth at the same time before falling asleep.

I've been a friend of the weed (mostly in the form of hashish) since 1976. My consumption has been up and down, though. It really peaked after I decided that to quit drinking alcohol (after having been a moderate to heavy drinker all my adult life), but has since evened out ... to the point of living a mostly sober lifestyle now. No drinking, no drugs, no nothing, really, except for the black coffee. Which is a whole different kind of trip, to be honest. Being sober is a really fucking psychedelic thing. Seriously.

However, should I feel like smoking some weed, that's "allowed". I don't think I'll ever drink again though.

One time I was withdrawing from Cymbalta after not taking it for a few days, and for me the first thing I notice when I quit is just this intense emotionality. So I was just in my room and I figured I'd smoke some cannabis and that that'd make me feel better. Nope, it just amplified the intense emotionality. I ended up crying like a child while listening to death metal, and I could swear I could hear the world's grief in the music. This went on for hours until I was exhausted and went to sleep.

Another time I had too much cannabis and I was really tired and laying down. My thoughts were spiraling like crazy and my eyes were closed. I started to suspect that I was asleep and that when we fall asleep we are still conscious, but don't remember any of it. So I thought I was in this like hidden zone of life which was the sleep life. Anyway, seeing that I remember this, it doesn't seem particularly plausible. I was just feeling different and finding strange possible explanations.

Another time I had too much cannabis and I had some kind of mania-like symptoms. I ended up making about three facial expressions per second for an hour, just random ones with no real pattern. I also had two thought streams at the same time and I felt like my body was possessed by something that wasn't me. 

The very first time I got high was from a friend who just handed me some chocolate without telling me what it was. Next thing I know I'm teleporting around the house trying to figure out what the fuck is going on lol. It took me a little bit of time to piece together the fact that I must be high, and that was what being really high was like. By the way, pranking people with drugs...not cool!

As for my habits, I tend to use nightly in small amounts to lift my mood and make me feel relaxed. Occasionally I take a big amount, but it's almost like a different drug in large amounts, and set and setting become important. Lately I like Blue Dream.

Those are some intense stories! I don't think I've ever had too much weed before but maybe I shouldn't push it haha.

Personally, I recently decided to stop drinking and only use weed for relaxing and chilling. I've noticed that alcohol only brings you down as the result, while weed always makes you funny and helps create good atmosphere ;]

Peace

Don't know how I never noticed this thread before. I smoke on a regular basis and am stoned now. It's legal here. I haven't bought any at the store yet as the the price is double what I can get otherwise. I much prefer weed to alcohol. In my experience drinking too much will fuck up your life and your health way faster than weed. With alcohol, I find that to drink enough to feel the effect is too close to the point of loosing control, whereas with weed, you feel it fairly quickly but smoking enough to feel out of control would take a hell of a lot of weed. Don't know if I said that right, hopefully you get what I mean. Anyway, I usually just smoke weed, but in Amsterdam I loved smoking hash. Have only found hash once in the U.S. As for "dabs", I haven't tried it, but if I ever have enough $ I'll get it at the store. 

I love the way weed enhances my emotional connection to whatever music I'm listening to.

Love the herb! Here's some of my fav strains:

SATIVA:  Super Silver Haze, Lemon Haze, Green Crack, Sour Diesel, Jack Herer, Durban Poison

INDICA:  Northern Lights , Blue Dream, Blueberry Kush, True OG, Abusive OG

HYBRID:  Girl Scout Cookies,, Gorilla Glue #4 (now called "Original Glue"), Tahoe OG Kush, White Widow, 

I find the intensity that Live resins deliver to be rather fitting for me, hash has ALWAYS been a favorite too but become too hard to find - however what I absolutely get off on is when I make some Green Dragon (Tincture).  That's like taking the strongest pain pill without side effects!

I gotta say that most hippie smokers are what cannabis law reforms biggest enemies are.  The plant has so many more beneficial uses for humanity than just smoking it.. I've been to NORML rallies, etc. and there are professionals/government officials there to learn more about the global impacts that plant could bring to both environment and medicinal purposes but it's always some idiot fucking hippie that can't wait to spark up till afterward that turn people off that are there to learn. I've walked out many time because of this... I guess things are changing in it's favor after all but I never thought that be possible.

My little girl (jack russell/boston terrier mix) fell sick with something no vet could accurately diagnose or treat... she'd get these massive seizures and to this day I can hear her screams... .oh boy here come the tears... sorry...anyway, there'd be nothing I could do for her except watch and hope she'd come back to each time... after each episode she'd be like a zombie for a couple of days... it was heartbreaking.  So I researched it myself since spending over $2k on 2 different "vets" with all these lab tests didn't do anything (literally nothing!!!) I decided to give her some CBD supplements... (CBD is the component that DOES NOT GET YOU HIGH THC is that component and while not lethal for humans, can kill an animal!!!) in 3 days time she was her normal puppy like self again!!! WTF the transformation was unreal... I put a separate food dish in a different room than her food bowl and only gave her those CBD supplements there... sure enough after a couple months of taking the treats she'd go stand by the CBD treat bowl when she wasn't' feeling well!!!  I'm not making any of this up... I knew when she wasn't feeling well I could see her sway and she'd drop her head to the floor leaving her rear up in the air... a good dog sign she was dizzy... so naturally being a "druggy" no one believed me until the local store that had them would temporarily run out of stock.. a couple days without supplements here comes back the seizures and throwing up food, etc.!  Every time she'd start back on the treats she would rebound and everyone in my life then finally saw and couldn't argue that they were working miracles for her.  While these supplements didn't cure whatever illness she had they surely gave her a quality of life like nothing else any "professional" could offer her... and believe me they were a lot cheaper too!  The CBD supplements gave her another 1 1/2 years with me that I'd give anything now to relive.  Unfortunately, she passed away in my arms last summer and not a day goes by where I'm grieving for her... after ditching my ex-wife/getting divorced and having to sell my house she was all I had left.  She was a rescue and our bond was strong... amazing friend that will always be close to my heart.  I miss you so much Olive! :cry:

Every time I see those poor children and their families that also have "untreatable" seizures and how they suffer so I just don't understand how any person/government could limit or control what THEY decide to put in their bodies that WORKS!!! I know this isn't for everyone nor does it work the same for different people but for those that it does work let them live with what little comfort they can have... my heart goes to anyone suffering that is not able to receive this kind of treatment.

Love to all!

P.S. - Here's an interesting CBD/THC medicinal wheel if you haven't seen one before:

    • Whichever tier of thrash metal you consigned Sacred Reich back in the 80's/90's they still had their moments.  "Ignorance" & "Surf Nicaragura" did a great job of establishing the band, whereas "The American Way" just got a little to comfortable and accessible (the title track grates nowadays) for my ears.  A couple more records better left forgotten about and then nothing for twenty three years.  2019 alone has now seen three releases from Phil Rind and co.  A live EP, a split EP with Iron Reagan and now a full length.

      Notable addition to the ranks for the current throng of releases is former Machine Head sticksman, Dave McClean.  Love or hate Machine Head, McClean is a more than capable drummer and his presence here is felt from the off with the opening and title track kicking things off with some real gusto.  'Divide & Conquer' and 'Salvation' muddle along nicely, never quite reaching any quality that would make my balls tingle but comfortable enough.  The looming build to 'Manifest Reality' delivers a real punch when the song starts proper.  Frenzied riffs and drums with shots of lead work to hold the interest.


      There's a problem already though (I know, I am such a fucking mood hoover).  I don't like Phil's vocals.  I never had if I am being honest.  The aggression to them seems a little forced even when they are at their best on tracks like 'Manifest Reality'.  When he tries to sing it just feels weak though ('Salvation') and tracks lose real punch.  Give him a riffy number such as 'Killing Machine' and he is fine with the Reich engine (probably a poor choice of phrase) up in sixth gear.  For every thrashy riff there's a fair share of rock edged, local bar act rhythm aplenty too.

      Let's not poo-poo proceedings though, because overall I actually enjoy "Awakening".  It is stacked full of catchy riffs that are sticky on the old ears.  Whilst not as raw as perhaps the - brilliant - artwork suggests with its black and white, tattoo flash sheet style design it is enjoyable enough.  Yes, 'Death Valley' & 'Something to Believe' have no place here, saved only by Arnett and Radziwill's lead work but 'Revolution' is a fucking 80's thrash heyday throwback to the extent that if you turn the TV on during it you might catch a new episode of Cheers!
