Make sure you feel safe and comfortable, have a couple things planned, even if it's just "watch this movie," have a drink and some food ready in an easy spot to get to, maybe make sure your most pressing real world responsibilities are handled. Suggested music: Spyro Gyra - Catching the Sun

e I also really liked the movies 2001: A Space Odyssey and Quest for Fire (Clan of the Cave Bear isn't as good, just rewatch Quest for Fire). YouTube also has a whole grip of recordings of Terence Mckenna lectures set against spacey music and visuals, those really did it for me for a while. Go one bowl at a time, and examine what you're feeling. Cannabis isn't really a party drug, even though parties usually include some.

Someone who was in A Quest for Fire was a substitute teacher in my middle school and high school

So I got Vader from Viola, Iran Contra from Lemonati Family Farms and Gary Peyton from Cookies/Gage. They all look and smell wonderful. Also picked up 4 Stiiizy pods which means I have yet another proprietary battery, but they are supposed to be really high quality.

Also, broke my T break last night and immediately regretted it. I took two hits off my new bong of my neighbors outdoor Northern Lights grow and thought that shouldn't be a big deal! Nope, holy gently caress, anxiety spiraled and felt like garbage. It was a combination of my tolerance being 100% reset and my body still recovering from a colitis infection. I'll probably try again later this week and go a helluva lot lighter.

Sorry bout the lovely return from T break. I've been out for a few months now. Want to drive up to CO to restock but I'm getting married in July so can't really rationalize doing that when money needs to be put towards that. I guess the nice thing is my tolerance will 100000% be back to 0 by the time I do get around to restocking and hopefully I'll have more cash put aside for the next trip so I can come back with even more than I did last time.

It's been fuckin' YEARS since I had Northern Lights and I forgot that poo poo hits like a god drat truck. That, plus my heart rate had been all hosed up yesterday, probably due to antibiotics. 110% my fault, I should know better as Someone Who's A Stoner. I'll give it another go with different poo poo later this week.

I dont really think Girl Scout Cookies is that good, but im buying off the darknet because everything on the street around me in Aus is real lovely weed.

I have had a few strains that look like rec state buds with heaps of trichomes on em but this GSC smells like all the other poo poo around me that gets pumped full of PGRs and tastes lovely.

UK Cheese strains are supposed to have lactic acid in them

My experience growing one was that the shatter I made out of it tasted like Dim Sum but then my buddy in Seattle got some UK Cheese dispensary shatter and he also said that tasted like Dim Sum

I've had "GSC" and I've had actual GSC, it's one of those strains like Sour Diesel or Gorilla Glue where you're best off buying from a super legit source if that's what you actually want

So I roll with a rolling thunder
And I howl with the howling wind
And I drift downstream for as long as it takes
To get up and around the bend

I hardly even pay attention to strains, just to the details of the cannabinoids and terpenes that are inside. All the different factors in the growing process make the most difference, I believe. So two products that are exactly the same strain, verified, can be so different that thinking about the strain hardly even makes sense.

You should've taken, like, half of one hit after that long away. Especially out of a bong. I smoke regularly and two hits of a bong can still get my blasted.

The days of my youth when I could hit a bong all day long and hardly be effected are over.

That plus the side effects of the antibiotics really hosed me up. I survived though and learned my dumbass lesson I didn't need to. I'll probably be trying again with a single puff off one of the new carts I got, ease my way back into things. I'm the type who completely misjudges their tolerance after a break though and should've seen that comes from a mile away. But my new bong is so gorgeous and was tempting me, so here I sit, in shame.

Just make it a small puff, a full pull from a cart will gently caress you up equally bad

I am the coolest person ever with my pirate chalice. Seriously.



Dinosaur Gum

I'm starting to realise that maybe any time I smoke and get paranoid, it's a sign that I smoked too much. I am now using two scoops (using the scoop that came with my fury edge vape) and vaping at like 370 and most of my issues are gone. Before that I was tweezing in a bunch or using 3+ scoops.

Last week I had a couple of really unproductive days at work and decided to smoke some 'non-anxiety' weed I have (I mean, that has never made me anxious before) in the evening, and it did NOT make me less anxious. So I suppose mindset and also 'don't smoke too much' are factors too. And I still feel good/high after two scoops which results in like, a 1/3rd or 1/2 full fury edge, rather than just packing the entire thing.

Sometimes I dial it up to 400 once the vape has timed out, and take two more hits. Doesn't seem to hurt.

I am going to be mimicking my friends who are Brand New Baby Stoners and doing the tiniest little puff I can. I'm really glad I've spent time helping people learn to get high because now I have to do that to myself all over again. I was thinking either the cartridge or loading up my dugout/one hitter and taking a single hit off that. Whatever it is, it's gotta be baby steps.

In my experience mindset and environment are such a huge part of it. If you are dwelling on something negative when you start getting high in my experience it ends up just making things worse. I find making an effort to go in with a good mindset, having some quiet, repetitive music on in the background, and big mug of black (or herbal for bedtime) tea gives me the most consistently pleasant trips.

I find frequent shorter breaks of a day or two can help as well. I'm definitely an obsessive, and weed can sometimes exacerbate this tendency. If nothing else it can prevent me from going too far down a rabbit hole of negative thoughts without the chance to reassess.
