Can someone teach me to smoke weed. Basic facts:
- I smoked a good amount in high school and college with buddies before deciding I didn’t like it. Haven’t smoked more than like once a year since then. Never bought weed or any paraphernalia on my own.
- I think recently I discovered I didn’t like it because I was getting too high by smoking with stoner friends. Like a guy who doesn’t drink showing up, pounding a fifth of tequila, and having a straight up bad time.
- Have been looking for a way to unwind in Corona World. Really just want to smoke a tiny amount in the evenings/on the weekends when I feel like it.
- Would prefer to vape rather than actually smoke. Thought about just doing edibles but I think those will get me higher, longer than I want.
- That being said, I have no fucking clue where to start. From what I’ve researched so far, I think I want a vape pen or Juul-style vape. I think I’d rather go with oil because, even though it’s more potent, it won’t go bad. If I’m smoking herb I doubt I’d be able to use it before it skunks.
- I live in DC where I have plenty of options for delivery in various forms due to legal gray area.
Sounds pretty simple, get a vape cartridge of some good stuff and a cheap battery from a gas station or vape shop. Sativa is supposed to be the energetic "head" high and indica is supposed to be the couch lock "body" high (puts you indacouch) but tbh it's all just weed
Do most cartridges work with most batteries? Any recommendations for a good starter battery?
I think so, yeah. I'd recommend cheapo depot because honestly what features do you need in a battery. I think the one I bought was about $10. Charges with a USB
I would say start with a vape that's 1:1 THC:CBD. As someone who doesn't smoke much that will be a good way to ease into it without getting absolutely ripped. My wife would get very paranoid/anxiety from real weed but she loved her 1:1 to wind down with.
I like the kids in HS that thought weed was so powerful because they threw up every time they smoked it. "Bo I don't know what happened! I drank 12 beers and 5 shots and I took just one hit!"
Gonna snag a Slurricane and Strawberry Guava pre-roll to celebrate 4/20 responsible ... this weekend instead of on a Tuesday (and when I get my 2nd Moderna dose)
If you live in a recreational state, download Weed Maps, find a good dispensary, and tell the bud tender exactly what you just posted.
Agree. Find a well-respected local dispensary. Have a convo with a budrista, and then try it out. Maybe do that 2 or 3 times until you find your "thing" or "routine."
No different than going to the wine store and talking shop with the owner/clerk.
I got off vapes after people started getting sick from vapes, but I assume those issues aren't as relevant in the weed vape world.
Seems like vaping is best for you, giving the low effort and how long it will last you. But maybe buying flower/grinder/bowl will also work I am certainly no expert
people got sick off vapes using certain cutting agents. And some of those cheap nicotine vapes have some questionable shit in them coming from other countries. Typically I can’t do anything with VG or any additives like that. Either straight live resin/sauce or I just won’t use a cart. Legit carts from legit companies shouldn’t have any issues for you.
Yeah I’ve literally been thinking I need a weed sommelier. The problem is with the legal grey area, so I dont know how forthcoming they’ll be with a stranger who walks in and asks about weed straight up. When I was in Seattle I just walked in and said “I need your edible for pussies.”
can you explain the legal gray area in DC? I've never been to a dispensary there, how is it different?
From my experience, they operate under the “gift giving” premise. IE, you buy a lighter or tshirt or whatever, and you receive a “gift” of flower. It’s not State regulated like Colorado, Nevada, etc. A lot of them are pop ups/speak easy type places that will sell sketchy cart brands, etc.
this is basically it. Because possession is not illegal, but sale is, there are businesses that sell you something and then “gift” you weed at the end. One delivery service “sells” you a $60 2.5 second motivational speech and then “gifts” you weed at the end of it for free. It’s a very don’t ask don’t tell situation, but it’s incredibly prevalent and no one is hiding it. Essentially they mayor and city government want to legalize weed but need congressional approval, which obviously won’t happen, so they just almost never enforce it unless someone is particularly brazen. Joys of being a DC resident.
There are actual medical dispensaries but I don’t feel like going through the hassle of getting a card when it’s already so widely available and I’m not even going to smoke all that often.
huh, had no idea.
4/20 sales on top of the already wonderful medical prices..... Oh baby
Most carts have 510 threading so make sure you get a battery for those types
Last run I made to the dispensary I got 15 100-MG packs for $94. Not bad prices for a non-West Coast state
yeah I was thinking about getting a Stiizy just because I liked the look but reconsidered when I found that out. Just like a square look more than a cylinder for some reason
Stiizy is legit
They actually mostly were weed vapes, just black market manufactured. Not something that was bought from a dispensary.
Here is a good bit of the story
so is the gifted weed etc. the same stuff the dispensaries have ?
that's pretty wild if I do say so
enjoy the day fellas. Getting my 2nd vax today, so reaching a different level of high on 4/20
To all, including the Haters and Losers
Know we have a lot of Atlanta people. How do you guys go about acquiring edibles? I rarely partake, but like having them around for when I know I’m in need. I seem to only be able to find CBD products.
The science behind munchies, red eyes, cotton mouth...
Is that in Mich? I stocked up in Ann Arbor last month and was shocked at the prices
Yup, Dispo in Bay City has become my go to spot for edibles. Helps having a med card but the prices were still really solid before I got that IMO. I think the farther you get from the IN or OH borders the better prices will be
Look for Element live resin carts, they're dynamite
Ripped a fat dab. About to rip another. Waiting for the Chauvin verdict. Happy 4/20.
Nice, yea I drove up from Cbus
Why did I schedule a Finra exam for tomorrow?
pretty much doing this today
I started microdosing psilocybin today, taking it with Niacin to absorb more of the mushrooms.
Holy shit I've never experienced a Niacin flush before. Not enjoyable.
I am officially off the pots as I have a job opportunity that will require a drug test. Probably won’t get tested til late May so I think I’m good. Hitting the cardio hard these next few weeks.
Anyone use weed for migraines? Did some research on Leafly for strains but not having much luck
Growing like a weed!
Dabbing some Kush Sorbet. Cheers happy Friday.
Happy Friday all. Bought to pop an edible after I finish this poke
My 3+ month THC hiatus is officially over. Thought I might get drug tested for a project, but it didn’t wind up happening. About to celebrate with some Purextracts wedding cake. Cheers!
Hey guys, sorry if this isn’t the best place to ask this.
I use to use a ton of old school THC a long time ago.
what would Delta 8 do for me…if anything? Not trying to get blazed. Just need something to take the edge off/finding something to help come off antidepressants
If we are going full open kimono in this thread, what has you coming off antidepressants?
Did I share too much? By bad if so.
Med interactions is the primary reason.
No idea. It is gonna be illegal soon id bet. Interested in what you experience. I’ve heard head high without the body high, whatever that means
Not at all, I was just trying to not be too nosy about your health situation
