KaneTheMediocre: Bong does mean water pipe, but subby probably doesn't know that. Also, the phrase "potato bong" sounds much funnier than "potato pipe".
sobriquet by any other name: I'll go ahead and pitch in; D9-THC is a partial agonist of the THC receptor in humans, meaning that although you can truly large amounts of the chemical, it can only affect the receptors up to a certain amount. If you like, think of the receptors as being parking spots at a Sonic Drive through. D9-THC is like a full parking lot, nicely arranged with a car at every port.The synthetics that were discovered in the late 1990's (IIRC) are FULL agonists of the THC receptor in humans. There is no upper limit to how much they can affect you. It's like if the Sonic Drive through, formerly neatly arrange with one car per port, now has tens (or hundreds) of people standing around the order posts, all shouting their orders at the same time.It's no exaggeration; some of these compounds are 2000x stronger than D9-THC on a weight for weight basis AND have no upper limit of action. SWIM described it as "induced temporary amnesia and psychologically extreme paranoia". The other problem is that there are literally dozens of popular compounds that can have this effect, all with different psycho-pharmacodynamics and kinetics. They can enter and leave the system in different ways, and have different effects at different dosages.Finally, and worst, they are all relatively inexpensive to synthesize; manufacturers have incentive to put as much as they can on their product leading to some gross overdoses of an already potent substance. In some cases, three puffs of these compounds can send you to ER - not because you're going to die, but because you THINK you're going to die. It's paranoia, like that.In short, that stuff is for the educated alone, and it's playing with fire. Partial agonists are safer across the board, whether we're talking about SSRI's, Benzodiazepines, Bupenepherine, Modafinil, etc. They are a class of chemicals that have built in safety limits, and you should prefer them, when available.Thanks for reading.
