the menu as read by Brian:

Get some sour cream and onion chips with some dip, man, some beef jerky, some peanut butter. Get some Häagen-Dazs ice cream bars, a whole lot, make sure chocolate, gotta have chocolate, man. Some popcorn, red popcorn, graham crackers, graham crackers with marshmallows, the little marshmallows and little chocolate bars and we can make s'mores, man. Also, celery, grape jelly, Cap'n Crunch with the little Crunch berries, pizzas. We need two big pizzas, man, everything on 'em, with water, whole lotta water, and Funyons.

balisane: It's sad, but i'd actually like to talk to a Chroniseur and get a recommendation for something low THC, but high cannabinoid for pain/therapy.  If the pot shops had that along with their peace rocket whatever strains, that would actually be a useful service.


Sorry I'm late to this, but you're looking for sativas. Jack Herrer (I think my spelling on that is atrocious), Sour Diesel, or sativa-leaning hybrids like Plantinum OG. Also, most of the edibles you'll find are sativas as well, but make sure you ask! Also, sniff it before you buy. I have a theory that your nose reacts strongest to the strain that will help you the most. The newbies I've helped seem to agree, and they all prefer different strains.

WinoRhino: Onkel Buck: Sounds like it may have been laced with something

That could be; I don't have nearly enough experience with it to know for sure. Though I smoked a few more times after that, and the high was very similar but not as strong. Then one time I smoked something that was laced with something (he only mentioned this after the fact.) I have no idea what was in it. I could feel every fiber of my clothes against my skin, and when I was drinking water from a red solo cup I could taste the plastic. I ended up riding it out by watching some sort of NOVA television special about submarines. I didn't smoke again after that.


Funny thing is, my fiance has a similar story. Never got high for years. Then he takes a hit from a vape. Soooooo stoned. So strength, type, and method of consumption can all affect the degree and quality of the high. I can smoke sativas all day long and never feel it.

Me? Smoked three times, once a year in high school. The last time I spent 3 hours staring at the concrete and my bf at the time remarked about how the only way he could tell I was alive was because I was still breathing. It was a very nice meditation, but nothing zomg awesome. Now that I've developed PTSD? Much better, and the high is way more enjoyable. Plus, I get the bonus of not having people with guns chasing me through my dreams/hallucinations at night.

Thank you! My ex and I have the same reaction to most of it: random muscle firing and an unpleasant feeling in the gut/nausea, which was very disappointing, since we had been hoping to use it to control his fibromyalgia and migraines. Only recently did I learn that this was probably due to high THC, because, you know, I'm old or something.

I will ask around more and see if I can find something helpful for him.

No worries. Definitely look for the lowest THC, high CBD. Sniff test won't work so well if he's not there with you, so you may have to try out a few strains before you find the one you need. Also, if you're a new user or have lowered tolerance, the lesser quality stuff isn't necessarily bad to start with. It'll help you manage the dosage better before you have unpleasant side effects. I would also suggest staying away from edibles and concentrates (extracted THC and CBD) to begin with; they are super strong, very difficult to dose appropriately for a new user, and if dosed wrong, the worst of the effects can last for hours, whereas the peak high with smoking is around 30 minutes to an hour and a half.

And yeah, my friend uses sativas for fibro. It's really night and day with her. One day I almost had to pick her up and carry her into the house after a doc's appointment and she'd been out of meds for a little while. Next week after she picks up an ounce she's bouncing around the house again like nothing's wrong. YMMV.
