How does weed effect you?

I’m 63 years old. Curious how weed effects you?

Recently rediscovered weed as a way to help me sleep.

Both smoke and edibles inevitability put me into a deep sleep (thankfully) whereas before I’d struggle to get 6 hours (I’m also no caffeine).

I’d really like some “party” weed instead of weed that gives me major couch lock.

Into my first grow now (a Sativa/Indica hybrid). Before that, I’d always buy what I needed. Never really knew what strain or variety I was buying (not in a friendly state) and I don’t have a wide cast of friends who sell or partake.

I know I need more of a Sativa influence to be more energetic. Or maybe I’m smoking too much at a time to put me in couch lock.

Curious how it effects you?

My buddy says it all affects him the same and he laughs a lot when high. I go super mellow

I guess it depends on the strain. A strong sativa gets me uppity, makes me talk a lot. I like indicas, though. I can think clearer, and at night, sleep better. I have insomnia so that’s the main reason i prefer indica.

If it’s your own grow, you can harvest before trichomes on the flower start getting a lot of amber. When they are all cloudy and very little amber, it results in a more energetic high. The longer they go, the more amber, this is when you start hitting couchlock.

The best party type strains ive come across is pineapple express, lemon mimosa, mexican airline, zkittles, and nefertiti( white widow x black widow). So far every strain had effected me different, heck even the 2 lemon mimosas ive grown were pretty different bur i have noticed terp profiles can help direct you to the strains you tend to prefer such as lemon ,pineapple, mango, and candy being fun strains where as i have yet to find a good strawberry strain and only a couple decent orange strains and oof grape strains can knock you out with how euphoric they can be

I can’t smoke it. Just grow it.

My wife is all but immune to the typical effects of weed. She uses edibles to help her sleep but does not feel the effects that the rest of us look for.
Me, I can smoke a single flower bud, were talking the size of a popcorn kernel, pre pop, and I’m done.
I prefer Blue Dream as its relaxing and cerebral enough to make movie watching fun but no paranoia.

Trichome maturity plays the biggest roll for me as far as that goes. You can grow a sativa till its trichomes amber and find yourself stuck to the couch and drooling. Want to be off the couch and rocking, harvest before the amber sets in.

Cannabis makes me want to run to the top of the nearest mountain. :slight_smile:

In the best way possible :stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye: helps me stay calm and focus. Food is always better :drooling_face:

My experience exactly. ONE hit of Blue Dream & I’m good. For hours.

Yep, If I was growing only for me, one plant would last me a year, maybe two, and I would only grow another because the stock is getting too old.
