Sigh. This is my mom, touching base after family Christmas.
Weed hot cocoa sounds divine. Ultimate relaxation.
Okay, you guys. Be prepared for a dorky history.
I was approved for a medicinal card for like, 8 different reasons. (Mostly anxiety and pain regarding my back surgery, but I also have awful insomnia.) I figured I’d give it a try. Prior to, I literally smoked twice ever. One time was good, one time sucked.
Based on experimentation and one very crappy amateur night, I think I found a good (Indica) strain. Amounts have been measured out to avoid paranoia.
That said, I felt very grim last night. Kind of an “I’m in control of this, but life is meaningless” feeling. I’m a worrier. But the fact that I had close to the same amount as I did before with such different results made me wonder.
Is that normal? Is every time different? What strains would y’all recommend? TALK ME THROUGH THESE FEELINGS.
Sativas, bro. Blue Dream is a classic, and my personal fav.
Indicas make me feel paranoid and yucky too. Blends are a good compromise if you need something for sleep.
But also... Yes, at first it’s intense. Your tolerance builds up the more frequently you do it.
I think in general it lifts my mood (that life is meaningless is a comfort to me tho) but any high will usually reflect what mental headspace you’re in anyway. I dunno!
Anxious stoner here. I know that trapped in a head full of doubt feeling all too well. All my favorite strains are hybrids. Anything with OG in the name is likely to pique my interest, and I never pass up Train Wreck when I see it. Also, stuff that’s high in CBD (but not necessarily low THC) is nice and relaxing.
You know what’s been much more beneficial to quelling my anxious tendencies than weed, though? Mushroom microdosing. I got no fucks to give with a little psilocybin in me.
Mango Trainwreck, Lambo OG, White Rhino, OG Berry Kush. Sour Diesel is lit if you can get it.
Much appreciated, chickens. The “budtender” at the dispensary seemed like a guy who just liked getting high, and his suggestions weren’t great.
The strain I’ve had the most success with is Querkle. But I think it’s a delicate balance with my Citalopram. Querkle + Citalopram = Giggling with G about stupid inventions I though of, and laughing harder than I have in years. Querkle + a forgotten dose is “we’re all dying anyway. Nothing is important. Why am I on this fucking planet.”
The budtenders like everything!
If a strain is noted to have "energetic" effects, does that also mean "maybe anxiety if you're prone to it"?
It's spring break! I wanted to try smoking for the first time. Well, first time in like 20yrs.
Think of all cannabis as a mood amplifier. Any psychoactive strain can stimulate anxiety. Maybe try something with a higher CBD to THC ratio? It’ll be less euphoric but likely more relaxing.
I got one for evening and one for daytime. Laissez les bons temps rouler! Safely at home and away from other people of course.
I smoked like 75% of the "day" pre-rolled. I can tell I'm physically high, but my emotions and thought process is the same. Maybe a little more "e-h whatever" than I have been in weeks.
Update - I highly recommend being stoned when watching the news. I was still pissed, but my blood pressure stayed low-ish plus not getting that "overwhelmed, head about to explode" feeling.
If I've been awake for two hours but I'm still in bed does it count as a wake and bake?
Eleven day break! Time to puff puff keep.
Me, a federal employee in a prudish af state:
Take a vacation!
Appropriate for today.
