Stoner girls are a rare breed of female. Some of us like to get baked then go shopping for hours, others hate shopping and would rather play video games and build gravity bongs all day, and the last bunch of us of would much rather enjoy a skate sesh and munching on some pizza afterwards. We are all part of the same tribe yet there is still so much diversity to be found amongst all of us, however, these are nine things that we all definitely have in common.
Marijuana grows and propagates differently from every other plant in the world. It determines its sex differently, it buds and flourishes, dies and decays, cures and burns a little differently than any other vegetable. The belated discovery of marijuana’s organic complexity was preceded by an ancient and rich history of its usage. Delta-9 THC was isolated in 1965. It's the THC that gets you high, of this nearly everyone agrees, and it also appears to be responsible for most of the other physical effects that follow marijuana ingestion. Weed lovers learned about this almost as soon as the government botanists isolated the stuff, so that nowadays an online industry exists to facilitate by means mechanical and agricultural the extraction of THC out of pot or the cultivation of high-THC strains of marijuana. In 1968, pure-THC studies started demonstrating the two most immediately conspicuous systemic effects of the drug: changes in the eyeballs and in the stomach. By mechanisms that remain a perfect mystery, pot dependably causes a visible reddening of the eye-whites by congesting the conjunctival lining at the edges of the eyelids, and also it works somewhere in the brain to settle the stomach and eliminate nausea.
If you smoke weed, then there are things you should know. Like taking an introduction course to save a lot of time and mistakes in the future, it's great to have some wisdom from the elders. We compiled a list of some of the best question and answer sessions from stoner groups since the early hippie years and the start of the legalization movement. Simple questions deserve simple answers, especially for stoners.
If you are someone that loves the smell of marijuana, then you must have encountered, at least once, a place or a certain object that smelled very similar to the beloved herb. Cannabis is known for its very distinctive smell, which is not only enjoyable but relaxing to many people. And, although nothing will ever compare to the sensation of smelling some fine grown buds, here are a few things that smell like weed.
Forget getting stoned and playing records backwards while watching muted classic films; the best mix of weed and vinyl came out of the 60s and 70s counterculture era - the immensely popular comedy albums. A group of original hipster stoners would get together at someone’s house, open the bedroom window, stuff the bottom of the door with damp towels, turn down the lights, turn on the lava lamp, drop into a beanbag chair, get baked and listen to comedy albums. Drugs figured heavily in the humor of the era because they were already becoming an important element in the lives of young audiences. Beginning with Lenny Bruce, the new comedy - while for the most part banned from TV and radio - was able to survive and ultimately prevail through the platforms of the digital era.
Not surprising that the biggest weed busts ever occurred in the first 15 years of the 21st century. As the global cry for legalization hits its highest note, so too does an anxious criminal element that is at risk of losing employment. With manufacturing facilities, farms, and dispensaries popping up throughout the states that have already legalized marijuana, illegal distribution is maximizing what is a short life span for career pot dealers. Perhaps this is the final crescendo of big weed busts as the legalization movement continues to grow.
History repeats itself and that's a good thing if you are a marijuana advocate. History is filled with individuals without whom there would be no legalization effort today. Many of the most famous people in history who smoked weed were famous not for their smoking, but for their contribution to cannabis culture.
As the most widely known molecule found in cannabis, THC has been a thing of myths for a long time. Scrutinized as far back as Chinese emperors, many of the myths believed for centuries were simply due to a lack of factual knowledge. As the legalization movement begins to accelerate, the global community of information expanded, and common myths about cannabis started to get debunked. Plus there was the invention of the internet, so, that helped quite a bit too. Fortunately, with time comes knowledge and with knowledge comes...well... truth. So let's get started and start busting these common myths about cannabis.
