Cannabis prohibition is a fight of good against evil

by dope smoker on February 17, 2020

This is a fight of good against evil, let’s face the facts. Looking at the bigger picture, how can you describe a force, of whatever sort, that prevents people of the earth from harvesting and consuming the very crops that grow on their land as anything but evil?

A dark force that goes beyond even prevention in many cases, actually putting people behind prison bars, like murderers, amongst murderers, because they chose to grow or even just use this particular beneficial plant.

Breaking into people’s homes in the middle of the night like organised burglary squads, creating unnecessary terror, hunting people down like dogs. Sometimes even killing them. Just who the hell do they think they are? Who are we to even allow this to happen? Aggravated burglary, anyone?

Officers of the darkness about to ruin somebody’s life

 

Only the utterly insane could see this as a good thing for society. The psychopathic ones.

Cutting ourselves off from nature is cutting ourselves off from our very soul. The more plants we foolishly prohibit from our lives the more disconnected from nature and unhealthy in mind and body we become.  That way, madness lies.

How much longer are we going to tolerate this damaging evil bullshit?

How many more people are going to have their lives ruined by this corporate sponsored and totally unnecessary victimisation?

How many more children are going to be left to suffer with their ‘incurable’ illnesses because somebody else said they were not allowed the medicine that actually helped?

No, you can’t do that, sorry. Instead your child must endure severe pain and perhaps even death. Because we say so. And we can’t back up our side with science either. But you must comply.

Even if you don’t smoke it or grow it you can still become an unsuspecting victim of its evil prohibition, the dark tentacles reach far and wide.

Would the thriving child slavery trade even exist to the extent that it does if it were not for the entirely disproportionate prohibition of cannabis forcing the huge UK market underground for so many years? Uncomfortable questions for some no doubt, but these are precisely the sort of questions we need to start asking.

What other issues are quietly being affected by this never ending monstrosity?

Would our suicide rates drop if we completely legalised the cannabis plant?

Data from the US suggests that it would. See the blue line below. As well as lowering traffic fatalities. And creating millions in taxes. And freeing up vital police time to concentrate on actual crime where there are growing lists of actual victims.

If you think you live in a free country, plant some seeds of the healing cannabis plant in your front garden and see what happens to you.

How bizarre that we must fight for our right to use nature. How can a plant that makes so many people simply feel better still fundamentally be against the law?

We do not live in a free democratic country where people can vote on laws that actually affect them (that is merely a clever illusion) but more of a corporate dictatorship, run by powerful, evil overlords who happily profit from the suffering of others whilst the police do their dirty work.

It is beyond a disgrace.

Smoke Weed Everyday?

by dope smoker on January 27, 2020

Almost any of the great minds who choose to consume cannabis will usually in some way or form, have one warning for others amongst the many benefits: High doses without a few days break will only ever impede your livelyhood, demotivate you and fog your memory in the long term.

I have to be especially vocal about the benefits of the plant to reduce harm because right now I live in a country where the government actively tells people cannabis DESTROYS lives and somehow causes psychosis despite so much evidence for the contrary. Every day another user is put behind bars, a life efficiently destroyed for the benefit of the state.

People all around me hold unscientific and heavily biased views, creating a dichotomy between “stoners” and “sobers” which will only obscure the truth and impede legalisation (which if you don’t already agree should happen, has irrefutably reduced actual crime and reduced the harm of all drugs in society markedly)

But back to those “dangerous” daily high doses. No natural cannabinoid has been shown to have neurotoxic effects in humans. Any effects from consumption are temporary and don’t trust anyone who argues otherwise because there is no chemical mechanism to support that idea.

Even in people prone to hyperemesis from extreme use (vomiting unless they smoke pot) this side effect goes away ~3 weeks after the last inhale. Even in developing brains the evidence for any harm is not clear and exaggerated.

When you consume daily though, you will start storing CBD, THC, and THCV in fat deposits. CBD is extremely beneficial for almost anybody as it isn’t a drug, it doesn’t bind to (agonize) CB1 or 2 receptors directly, instead allowing the body’s endocannabinoids to bind easier. This is why the government can’t keep it prohibited on the grounds that it’s psychoactive, because it isn’t. Even bigots have to abide by the laws of biochemistry when drafting their oppression systems. CBD is our foot in door for full cannabis decriminalisation.

THC is first and foremost a CB1 agonist, and secondary a psychedelic. CB1 agonism is where THC replaces anandamide your body produces in the receptor, creating the wellbeing, sedative, pain relief and demotivating effects. It’s also psychedelic though, so will directly enhance creative thinking and immersion in any tasks you are performing. Unlike LSD or psilocybin, this effect is typically mild because CBD actively stops THC being absorbed into the receptors.

Almost all of the perceptual and long term pro cognitive effects of cannabis, come from THC. I repeat this a lot, but no one seems to understand: In the long term neither THC, nor other psychedelic use, causes manic psychosis in healthy adults or adolescents, a proven fact. Only in people with schizophrenia or other rare genetic differences is this a risk worth mentioning.

Even though I describe psychedelics as mania inducing drugs, this is only for the duration it is in your brain, you get too high one time? Just breathe and you’ll be back to normal in a few hours.

THC-V is produced in low concentrations when you smoke or vaporise weed at high temperatures. It is more potent at agonising the receptor and has stronger sedative, anti-insomnia effects than THC. If you smoke daily your body has to process more of this stored cannabinoid which explains the lethargic effect of ritual, daily smoking.

So what does this tell us? Depending on who you are you can almost certainly benefit from all 3 major cannabinoids’ effects. If it wasn’t for discovering the anti-insomnia effects of the plant I would have found 6th year and uni days impossible due to my chronic ADHD making a healthy sleep pattern impossible. I wouldn’t have been able to function during my lowest depressions if it weren’t for the relief I feel after a vape. If it weren’t for the pain relieving aspects of daily use many of my friends would not be able to leave the house.

If it weren’t for the anti anxiety effects of CBD many people I know would never have been able to pursue their hidden talents. If it weren’t for the recreational comfort using the plant brings, many people I know would be turning themselves into alcoholics. Hell if it weren’t for the pleasant smell of pot smoke filtering out a window, we wouldn’t get that instant feeling that somewhere, someone is having a good time.

But if it weren’t for the side effects I described at the start, the gradual demotivation, lethargy, confusion and memory inaccessibility that comes with high, uninterrupted THC use, I would be telling people it’s okay to use it every day. You’ll notice I’ve never advocated for that in my writings, not for anyone who doesn’t have a genuine medical condition (epilepsy, insomnia, chronic pain, cancer etc.) To think that any tool humans have discovered has only positive effects is silly.

Your brain, if you are healthy and usually somewhat grounded like me, is a genetic machine derived from the experiences of every human being in your lineage. It goes through natural depressions and manias according to your own experiences, where you feel like those traits hide and come out on their own accord.

When you take any drug, yes you are impeding or allowing those connections to work better. The number one myth about drugs is that just because they replace neurotransmitters they are distancing “you” from your natural processes, the direct opposite is true for psychedelics as they are more efficient than natural serotonin. Anyone who’s “felt more alive and more themself” than they had before taking them knows this.

The same is only half true for pot use.

Terence Mckenna, while introducing the west to traditional entheogen use advocated that people do as he said and not what he did when it comes to cannabis (he is famous for being one of the most vocal and heavy potheads in the world). He recommended people use it no more frequently than once a week, due to the negative effects compounding only after days without a break and the tolerance to THC.

He blamed his inability to moderate his use on his love for the effects, and the mild addictive quality to the softening of anxiety that the plant brings. I strongly think he openly used it every day because he wanted show an intellectual genius can choose to be a stoner and still appear 100% to anyone else. Say what you want about his later theories being too fantastical, his abilities and personality had no signs of diminishing even though he became more distant from society and his family (truly the two most beneficial yet damaging cages a creative person can be trapped within).

I’ve had the joy of figuring this out in just a few years of living in the pothead centre North East Scotland as an afro’d musician who dresses in paisley and wears bellbottoms. I am surrounded by amazing and well-meaning people who are open to new understanding and interpretation of age old issues, and but some of the attitudes towards pot use are outdated to say the least. I can only hope the mass media loosens it’s fiercely unchanging stance on psychedelic and cannabis derived drugs as some devilish taboo unworthy of daily conversation and celebration…

In the words of the great George Harrison

“Floating down the stream of time, of life to life with me
Makes no difference where you are or where you’d like to be
It’s all too much for me to take
The love that’s shining all around here

All the world’s a birthday cake
So take a piece but not too much
Set me on a silver sun, for I know that I’m free
Show me that I’m everywhere, and get me home for tea

It’s all to much for me to see
A love that’s shining all around here
The more I am, the less I know
And what I do is all too much

It’s all too much for me to take
The love that’s shining all around you
Everywhere, it’s what you make
For us to take, it’s all too much

It’s too much, it’s too much
Too much, too much, too much cake!”

The recent legalisation of cannabis has brought much complete ignorance to the forefront of society, as well as a load of spin. With this in mind, I thought it a good time to write a simple cannabis guide for people who need education. A lot has been going on in the world of weed. We can’t ignore it any longer it is part of life on earth.

So, I hear you say:

Smoking cannabis is as bad as smoking cigarettes everyone knows that – it gives you lung cancer

Actually not. This is completely not the case, quite the opposite and don’t worry even celebrity doctors get this wrong too. The largest ever study done in the US on this very subject found that people who smoked only marijuana had less chance of getting lung cancer than those who did not smoke at all!

So – smoking cannabis does not cause cancer – it can actually prevent it. A more recent study demonstrated a lower risk of bladder cancer for those who smoke cannabis.

Having legal cannabis will encourage use and make it more available to children

No it will not encourage use. You cannot stop children and kids from wanting to experiment. In an ideal world you could but we do not live there.  We have to deal with reality. Teens in particular will do what they like. So what do you do? Let the criminals handle it, so your child will only be able to buy the very strongest and most tainted cannabis possible (along with the chance of some coke and pills like in the UK?)  This is a proven gateway effect, a direct result of prohibition. Before you say it, cannabis is not a gateway drug.

Or do we let them go to a dispensary when they are old enough and select from various options (many of them not capable of frying the brain) sold by nice people who know their plants –  which option would you want for your child?

The black market won’t die out overnight after legalisation of course – but this is the only possible direction to start reducing it.  Just like with alcohol, there will be moonshine for some time.  Remember, cannabis wasn’t always illegal.  Prohibition of cannabis is the failed experiment.

According to the updated Liberal Cannabis policies the new legal Cannabis markets, for example in Canada, any licensed Cannabis producers have to follow strict rules and procedures.

Legal cannabis will encourage crime

Legal medical cannabis reduces crime according to this study.  Not only that medical cannabis availability has also been linked directly to a reduction in suicides.  Still think cannabis is bad? You may have been brainwashed.

Cannabis makes people stupid

Actually it would appear that cannabis encourages the growth of new brain cells.

The whole thing about people being called ‘dopes’  is misguided. Whilst that person may appear to be dopey to you, they are taking much more information about their surroundings than somebody who is not high.  They have a higher sampling rate of life is all that is going on. Get over it.

A recent study has shown that cannabis users actually have better cognitive skills than people who don’t use it.

Alcohol is much better for you than cannabis and safer

Alcohol is technically a poison for your body ( more harmful than heroin), whilst cannabis acts as a medicine – particularly if you consume it raw. The facts of the matter are that alcohol can give you cancer and cannabis can prevent or even cure many types of cancer. Alcohol also causes other diseases.

Legal Cannabis will increase car accidents

Absolute rubbish.  The reality of the situation is that states that have legalised medical cannabis have seen a drop in in traffic deaths.

As well as that, a study by the Deutsches Ärzteblatt International, the German Medical Association’s official international science journal found that:

‘Patients who take cannabinoids at a constant dosage over an extensive period of time often develop tolerance to the impairment of psychomotor performance so that they can drive vehicles safely.’

All this ‘Medical Marijuana’ stuff is just an excuse right?

Yes many hold this opinion. Idiots all. Sure some people want to get in on it that aren’t ill but can you really blame them? It’s the most powerful medicine on the planet. Why shouldn’t people be allowed to use it in the way that they wish?

If you’re in any doubt as to the efficacy of cannabis medically perhaps you should ask Charlotte Figi’s parents about this. Or Rick Simpson. Or Kirsten Peskuski. Or Emmanuel Guzman. Also funny how the US government decided to patent something with no medical value wouldn’t you say? And now big money is involved too. The cat is out the bag. Official trials have begun on brain cancer patients. Cannabis is an amazing medicine.

Cannabis kills thousands every year

This is utter garbage. Pharmaceuticals kill thousands every year. Hundreds of thousands of Americans actually. Cannabis has never killed anybody in history. See if you can find a documented death due to cannabis consumption. You won’t because there aren’t any.  Even the DEA say that cannabis is safer than 10 potatoes. Yes really.

The UK have unsuccessfully tried to manufacture a couple of cases of cannabis poisoning now legalization is looming but few believe the reefer madness crap any more.

Only the other day a small 20 person study was taken completely out of context.

The mainstream media cannot be trusted to tell you the truth about cannabis.

Indepth Autoflowering Cannabis FAQ

by dope smoker on January 10, 2020

What are autoflowering cannabis plants?

‘Autoflowering’ cannabis is a relative newcomer to the world of cannabis seeds, with the very first seeds coming out only in 2003.

These plants can simply be planted and they will flower and be ready after around 70 days, making multiple harvests per year possible even in countries with colder climates. They also bring new possibilities to hydroponic growing.

They were created, it is believed, using crosses with a Russian cannabis Ruderalis plant. Because of the harsh cold and dark climate in Russia these types of plant have developed flowering properties which are not affected by light cycles. They are smaller than normal cannabis plants, however.

That was ‘Lowryder’ and in itself did not produce huge yields but that important breakthrough and years of breeding has lead to extremely productive and powerful autoflowering cannabis strains that bring a new dimension to cannabis growing.

Can autoflowering cannabis be cloned?

Despite popular rumour that Autoflowers cannot be cloned, there has been some outrageous success in cloning auto flowering cannabis in 2016.

See this thread at autoflower.net for more information. The guys has created some monster clones from a Jock Horror Auto.

Other strains might not produce the same results, obviously.

This result does seems to have some interesting implications for interested cannabis growers.

Can you grow autoflowering cannabis in a greenhouse?


Weed in a greenhouse. Image:Sturdi-built.com

Yes indeed autoflowering cannabis can be grown in a greenhouse in the UK all year round, allowing you multiple harvests if you start your plants off say once a month.

To keep your plants going through the colder months you’ll want to keep the inside temperature to a minimum of 15 degrees.

You must also take steps to ensure that there is adequate airflow and ventilation at all times.

 

When does autoflowering cannabis flower?


60 Day Wonder. Image: DNA Genetics

The average autoflowering cannabis cycle is around 70 days after planting the seed to harvesting your buds.

This can vary though and some autos can even produce flowers in as little as 60 days for example ’60 Day Wonder’ from DNA Genetics.

Some autos can take longer – taking more towards the 90 day cycle, these are generally bigger plants, which are still unaffected by light cycles.

An example of a longer flowering auto would be something like the lovely Chaze autoflower. A wonderful crafting together of a Haze and Cheese plant, some of the nicest weed I have ever smoked.

When to start feeding autoflowering cannabis?

As a rule you should not give autoflowers any extra nutrients for the first two weeks if you are growing in soil. Only water.

To avoid problems I tend to use the lazy method of Biotabs, a simple tablet that you push 5cm into the soil and forget about.

If you are growing in say 20 litres pots then 2 Biotabs will be enough. Biotabs also come with several other organic amendments to enhance the soil bacteria.

Once flowering has begun is a good time to add some organic black strap molasses into your water. Just take a spoonful out of your jar, put it into a cup and add boiling water before adding to 5 litres of your main watering water.

Do this a couple of times 2 weeks apart once you see flowers starting to form. It makes the buds much bigger.

Which autoflowering cannabis has got CBD in it?

Dinafem’s Industrial Plant x Pure CBD Plant

Many varieties of autoflowering plants will contain CBD. Lately there are specifically created varieties.

Dinafem for example have a number of different autos that contain CBD.

They also have an autoflower plant specifically made to grow large amounts of CBD bud fast, known as Industrial Plant x Pure CBD Plant. Well worth checking out.

Sensi Seeds have some new strains from their research program that contain CBD.

CDB Med Gom is also a very highly regarded producer of CBD bud that autoflowers in just 65 days.

When can you grow autoflowering cannabis?

In the UK, generally speaking you can get away with growing between April/May and September/October depending on local conditions.

Obviously, we are living through changing weather systems, so your mileage may vary to some extent. As far as I understand, the bacteria in soil stops growing below around 15 degrees celsius, so bear that in mind.

Something else to consider, if you are keen, is that you can grow your auto(s) by putting them outside in the daytime and then bringing them inside for the evening dark period.

Doing this you could probably grow throughout the year, though with some effort. This also prevents night time theft or damage from nocturnal creatures.

What are the highest yielding strains of auto flowering cannabis?

Automazar by Seymour Buds. Image:Dutch-Passion.com

See this article for some of the highest yielding types of auto flowering cannabis that I have come across personally.

A lot obviously depends on your personal growing skills, but genetics certainly will dictate the final result to some extent.

Hint: Use large pots for large yields.

And you may want to check out Jock Horror from Nirvana.

What is the best autoflowering cannabis?

Many people rate Dutch Passion’s Autos, as well as Dinafem’s. Sweet Seeds also make extremely good ones. And more recently Mephisto Genetics are gaining quite the following.

Some of my own personal favourites are the Magnum from Buddha Seeds and Dinafem’s Cheese XXL.

Both are absolutely great plants with very different characteristics indeed. People that try them love these varieties and can’t tell them apart from normal ‘photoperiod’ cannabis.

What is the best soil for autoflowering cannabis?

If you want to really get your hands dirty you can create your own super soil, see this thread on autoflower.net to find out more about that.

Care must be taken not to let the new seedling get into contact with the super soil, it’s normally put lower down at the bottom part of large pot that has less ‘hot’ or very strong soil in the top part where the plant first grows.

I generally buy a good potting soil from the garden centre and then amend it with worm castings, coco and add some perlite. I also use Biotabs (from 2 weeks after germination) and black strap molasses (for the flowering period.)

Can I just plant autoflowering cannabis on my window sill?

Autos growing on the window sill. Why not?  Image:DutchFem

Yes you can. As long as the window gets at least 4 to 6 hours of sun a day. Yields may not be huge but it can be a fun way to utilise a sunny part of your house and with practice and different strains you can optimise the process.

Growing this way you also avoid most problems with insects and other outdoor growing issues. Strength in numbers, perhaps. If you have a decent sized pots (ie above 10 litres) you should do OK.

For more information on growing see this guide to autoflowering cannabis.

69 Remarkable Benefits of the Cannabis Plant

by dope smoker on November 11, 2019

Long term weed smoker here. Here’s the good stuff that I have found over the years:

1. Calming

Cannabis has always been a calming influence on my sometimes overactive mind. It allows you to tune out the crap and focus on what is important to you.

2. Healing

The herb has helped me to get over various illnesses as well as some quite traumatic life events. It makes you feel better and allows you to be in the moment.

3. Shown me another view

There is always another side to every story. Weed helps you to see that other side of things very easily.

4. Helped me forget

Some things you don’t want to remember and weed is definitely good for that if let it work its magic.

5. Helped me remember

Occasionally I get transported back to moments in the past and experience the feeling of a strong memory, almost as if I as actually there once again.

6. Helped me sleep

I never have problems sleeping thanks to smoking weed. It is extremely rare. I sleep well.

7. Helped me imagine

Cannabis without a doubt gives the imagination a massive boost and really allows ideas to flow.

8. Helped me create

Cannabis helps you to create in so many ways, from imagining to exploring new ways of making something, it allows free thinking creativity.

9. Helped me work

Weed has given me the stamina and resolve to keep going and going even when the going is bad, this plant has some incredibly beneficial properties.

10. Helped me to focus

With the right strain, you can achieve a hyper focus beyond anything the normal brain is capable of, perhaps with the exception of some mental conditions.

11. Helped me make a friend

There’s nothing like a fellow stoner. The pursuit of weed can bring you into contact with some very cool people.

12. Helped me to not give a shit

There is so much fear and worry projected onto us in the modern world. There is nothing like cannabis to help you see past all this rubbish and relax.

13. Helped me to care

Cannabis helps to create empathy, something apparently very lacking in so many people today. We need more of this.

14. Given me energy

Cannabis can be a great for simply giving you energy. Out of nowhere you can experience an energetic boost to help you through your day.

15. Given me drive

The right cannabis strain can give you an incredible amount of drive and staying power, that is without doubt. Its powerful anti-inflammatory properties are well known by athletes now.

16. Connected me to nature

Cannabis helps you to experience nature in a magical way that leads to connection and appreciation. Just try it and you’ll see what I mean.

17. Given me a deep appreciation for plants

Growing cannabis you soon realise what an incredible piece of nature you are dealing with and this has led me to a greater appreciation of the whole plant world.

18. Given me hope

Yes, in dark days, cannabis can lift you up out of the slump and even make you feel happy. It’s just the most remarkably effective natural antidepressant you can possibly have.

19. Healed a friend’s mums cancer

More than a few people I know have now stopped cancer in its tracks using cannabis oil. The empirical evidence is everywhere.

20. Made me hungry

Mostly this is a good thing – weed is excellent for the appetite which for some people can be a life changing necessity.

21. Made me talkative

Cannabis is often an excellent stimulant of conversation, anything is possible and you could end up on some strange and interesting journeys.

22. Made me think

Weed expands the mind and allows you to look at a wider picture than when straight. The mind is massaged in a most natural and beneficial way.

23. Made me relax

The ideal way to wind down, weed can be the ultimate relaxant. Sometimes it’s nice to have a proper couch-lock experience.

24. Always been a friend

I have never smoked any weed I did not like. Only ever loved a thousand different strains a thousand different ways.

25. Helped clear the air

An after argument a spliff is incredible for putting both of you on exactly the same wavelength. It is the perfect thing to share after any cross words. Then you realise how silly you’ve been.

26. Helped me see clearly

Cannabis can help you to see patterns, sometimes too much, but if used wisely it can help the brain to detect subtle patterns in your life and see the whole issue.

27. Made me less interested in consumerism

Without a doubt. Cannabis promotes satisfaction which is exactly what consumerism does not want us to be. Smoke some weed and it is laid bare for what it is.

28. Helped me through an illness

Cannabis has amazing medical properties and has definitely helped to reduce symptoms when I have been ill. And it has helped me to sleep through an illness.

29. Cured hangovers

I gave up drinking a few years ago but when I did drink there was nothing that could sort out a hangover like a reefer and a cup of tea.

30. Helped me give up drinking

Cannabis definitely helped me to stop drinking. It got me through the important initial difficult days and supported me long afterwards. For this I am eternally grateful.

31. Shown me beauty I could never have imagined

The enhanced colour and movement that can be experienced by cannabis is unbelievable. One of the most incredible things I have seen are the leaves of a huge picture of a tree brought to life, shimmering as if in the wind.

32. Inspired me

It is without a doubt that cannabis can inspire thought. Terence Mckenna puts it well: “It promotes a dreaminess, an imbibing of the imagination that is the stuff of romantic poetry rather than the stuff of the modern assembly line and I’ve used in that way as a tool for creativity”.

33. Taught me about myself

Cannabis does help to see issues with your own behaviour, as Bob Marley once famously said: “When you smoke the herb, it reveals you to yourself.” And he was completely correct.

34. Helped me to see patterns

Cannabis definitely makes pattern recognition (for me at least) easier whether it is looking at a screen of data or taking account of external events, it helps.

35. Helped me to be happy

This plant has without doubt brought me more euphoria and happiness than I could ever have believed possible. It is the ultimate natural mood enhancer and still surprises me.

36. Given me patience

One of the most useful aspects of cannabis is that it can show you how to be patient, if you use it wisely.

37. Made me inquisitive

Weed increases your interest in everything. Some things more than others obviously but cannabis definitely has increased my curiosity of the world.

38. Made me travel great distances

In days gone by I may have travelled internationally in order to get a smoke. Sometimes you have to do what you have to do. Trips can be fun.

39. Given me positivity

On days when I have been feeling low cannabis will simply just turn things round for me and send me on a different, happier path.

40. Given me empathy

I don’t know how this works but somehow I do believe that cannabis has definitely made me more considerate to the needs of others. I suppose it could be down to the increased awareness.

41. Soothed me

Cannabis has helped to smooth over a great deal of situations in life that are full of stress. Cannabis has given me peace and soothed my mind so many times.

42. Made me laugh

Some of the best types of cannabis can just make you laugh. How wonderful is that? A plant that bring hilarity, satisfaction and happiness.

43. Saved me from madness

Although it is obviously not a cure all, for many years cannabis did pretty much prevent me from going mad from isolation.

44. Made the mundane fun

Even going to a supermarket can be fun when you’re stoned. Cleaning up, housework can all be done without feeling the utter boredom.

45. Brought me joy and euphoria

Starting your day with a fat doob of Jack Herer in the morning makes your day completely fun, unexpected and spectacular.

46. Helped me be a father

There is nothing like cannabis for getting on the same wavelength as your child, fully engaging with them in whatever they are doing. For this alone, it is a beautiful miracle.

47. Made me content

Cannabis promotes satisfaction and if you smoke it a lot, you become quite satisfied, I believe. This can save a lot of money, amongst other things. (Apart from on weed!)

48. Stopped pain

Cannabis is a great general pain-killer of both physical and emotional pain. There is nothing more effective, at least, that has no dodgy side effects.

49. Slowed me down

Cannabis does give you pause for thought. And if you have a very strong strain that makes you sleepy, you can be literally slowed down.

50. Given me wonder

Cannabis can change a view from stupendous to majestically magical, and it’s not just the views you can see that cannabis adds wonder to. Music is also transformed and takes on a new level of beauty.

51. Opened me up

Being introverted, cannabis has allowed me to express my thoughts more easily and to keep my whole brain in balance, helping enormously with social engagement.

52. Improved my relationship with my mother

Cannabis has given me extended patience which is always handy when dealing with your  parents, I find.

53. Never been a problem (when it is there)

Yes weed never caused me any problems. As far as I know. Perhaps it has but I strongly believe my life would have been very very different without it.

54. Helped me give up smoking tobacco

It would have been almost impossible to quit tobacco without some weed, for myself  anyway. It was hugely helpful in this process.

55. Made smells intense

Smells are definitely a lot more intense during a cannabis high. This is normally a good thing. 🙂

56. Made tastes intense

Eating food high definitely improves the whole experience. There is science behind why this is.  Beyond the munchies, even fruits can taste completely amazing.

57. Made touch intense

A fleeting touch without cannabis is just that, but with cannabis a touch can linger for long moments and can become incredibly intense if you allow it.

58. Made colours deeper and magical

Just looking at a sky or mountain scene with cannabis you experience much deeper and more vivid colours and often a real feel of magic of what you are beholding.

59. Helped moments to linger

One of my favourite things about weed is the ability it has to slow down time. In this fast paced world of materialism, we miss so much. Cannabis is an antidote to that.

60. Made me appreciate the earth

Spending time in nature with cannabis always feels good and does help to make you feel more connected to the earth.

61. Shown me my faults

The philosophical side of cannabis is fantastic for showing you the whole picture and sometimes this means showing you things you may not want to really see.

62. Helped me to see logic

Cannabis is ideal for allowing the brain to see different and more logical ways of doing something.

63. Helped me keep my temper in check

There is nothing like a spliff to stop you from losing your temper. It makes you question just how important your actions really are.

64. Made me think more

Without a doubt cannabis has led to much more deeper thinking than I would have experienced without it. The range of possibilities are endless when stoned and you visit some incredible places you would have never experience with straight thinking.

65. Killed my verrucas

I did manage to see off some verrucas once by putting cannabis oil on them. The transformation was incredibly rapid.

66. Enriched my life

Cannabis has taken me to go places in the world I would never have thought of going before and introduced me to some truly wonderful (and some magnificently odd!) people.

67. Opened my mind

As well as thinking more deeply cannabis opens your mind to a multitude of possibilities. It’s definitely increased my tolerance of others and made me less quick to judge.

68. Healed pets
