I used to just smoke schwage. Weed is weed, I'd say.

But then I got a new dealer who always had the best dro. He'd pull out his illuminated box, with all of these different strains. It was beautiful. He'd let me sample them, and then I'd get a gram of all of the different ones I liked.

I used to spend about $70 for an ounce and that would last me a month.

Now I'm spending $500 a month and I don't care because DRO is so much better.

My favorite strains:

White Widow Sour Diesel Sensi Star Grape Ape Ogre Kush

What are some of your favorites?

In Bay Area dispensaries, an 1/8th costs between $35-60.

Pre-rolled joints range from $8-12.

Edibles vary but roughly go from $6 for a brownie up to $20 for hi-potency THC chocolate bars.

I pay $50/eighth from my guy on the street but $350 if I want an ounce. Dispensaries offer no such discount on bulk, they want your tax dollars!

I've never had the luxury to shop a wide selection, but different strains have different effects on your mind and body. When it's legalized the tobacco companies are going to have fun with branding. I can't wait for the advertising.

Chem Dawg is the best for anxiety relief. I pay $200 per ounce from the grower. He gives me second trim free.

The booze analogy is not entirely apt. Some people care a great deal about the complexities of the flavors of wines and whiskies. However, few would claim that different qualities of wine affect their buzz. Not too many people are concerned with the flavors and aromas of their weed. (Though this may change.) It's all about the quality and nature of the buzz.

R39, if you read the reviews on them, people do go into those things.

Plus, a lot of the strain names are named after the way they taste or smell.

Yes, R40, but there are other psychoactive chemicals in weed.

The reason hemp, or marijuana, was prohibited in the 20th century was to suppress hemp fuel and fiber production. Hemp seeds make biodiesel fuel. Hemp biomass makes ethanol. Hemp makes more biofuel than any other plant. Hemp produces more fiber than any other plant. There are two types of fiber in a marijuana stalk or stem, the bast fiber, which is the outer bark, and the hurd fiber, or the inner woody core. According to the US Department of Agriculture's Bulletin 404, a waste product from making canvas, rope,lace and linen from hemp bast fiber, this hemp hurd fiber alone, makes over 4 times more paper than trees. Hemp paper is acid free, for a long shelf life, and produced without toxic chemicals. According to Washington State University's Wood Sciences Lab, hemp fiber board is stronger than steel. When we allow farmers to grow hemp for its best fuel attributes, regardless of THC content, we will realign our whole economic system by replacing fossil fuel with biofuel. Hemp fuel and fiber are inexpensive to make and naturally decentralized. Small groups of people created the marijuana myth so they could profit from the expensive, capital intensive petrochemical alternatives that dominate our political process and economy today. Hemp will decentralize our economic system and return wealth and control to the majority. Cannabis & hemp were renamed marijuana in the early part of the 20th Century in a misinformation campaign designed by and to benefit the petrochemical pharmaceutical military industrial transnational corporate elite fascist ruling class. Cannabis prohibition has always been about money, power and the centralization of economic and political control. Drugs are a smokescreen. We don't need to fight wars for oil because our farmers can produce a superior product. It is really an issue of economic and social justice. Please work for and support global cannabis freedom: restore hemp!

I get Sour Diesel and Chem Dawk in Brooklyn. Actually, I've become not such a fan of the SD - it makes me anxious and uncomfortable more often than not. One of the few strains that do that for me.

OG Kush is the other pretty ubiquitous one out here, though lately I've been enjoying the Girl Scout Cookie strain. Very occasionally they'll have White Widow or Northern Lights, which are my two favorites. But that's rare that they have those.

Oh that it could be legal so I could just go hang out in a coffeehouse with real people and get buzzed instead of being stuck in apartments with the same few people.

by Anonymousreply 5103/16/2013

Sour Diesel has a tendecy to make me a little anxious as well. Chem Dawg has the opposite effect.

Just yanking your chain, r50. My inner teenaged Bay Area suburban dude from the '70s was being channeled by all this pot chat.

Sour Diesel and Chem Dawg allowed me to hold down food during four months of chemo.

by Anonymousreply 5303/16/2013

Sour Diesel is a sativa. It's one of my favorite strains. It gives me a lot of mental energy, which I think when you're expecting to just chill on the couch can make you feel anxious. But it makes me happy and giggly.

Overall, I do prefer indica and hybrid strains.

White Widow is my favorite, but it's so rare.

Denial: Feds Ignore Their Own Agency's Findings Around Medical Benefits of Marijuana

March 15, 2013 - By Amanda Reiman

When I was in school in Detroit in the 80s I went with a friend to buy weed at a store near Mumford High School. It was ostensibly a music store, with one rack of a dozen yellowed pieces of sheet music, a small snack display and a counter and that was it. They didn't even try to hide what it was.

How much is a legal ounce of good dro in Washington and Colorado?

I pay $400-450 from my dealer, who I meet in a McDonald's parking lot. He usually has his 2 year old daughter with him.

by Anonymousreply 6803/22/2013

R68, I mostly use a vape, which requires little bud, but I also have lots of friends over and I'm big on sharing. It can last me as long as a month or as little as 2 weeks.

by Anonymousreply 6903/22/2013

I live in Colorado.

The standard price for mid-tier quality bud at a dispensary is $200. I don't go through the medical marijuana system because everything is dispensary quality here regardless where you get it from. I get top-shelf stuff for $220 an ounce but my previous work in the MMJ industry has provided me with good connects. Either way it's okay because now it is completely legal to carry up to 28 grams (an ounce) at anytime if you're 21 or older.

For the real cannabis connoisseurs out there, it's all about smoking hash oil. It's highly concentrated THC that is extracted and smoked with special glass equipment called an oil dome. Hash oil is way stronger than any weed strain you'll ever smoke. I tend to avoid it because I don't like the intensity of it but other stoners swear by it.

by Anonymousreply 7003/22/2013

I have smoked a few times many years ago. Tell me, what is the diff between great shit and everyday shit. It all seemed the same to me.

I am guessing it is like a fine wine

by Anonymousreply 7103/22/2013

Dispensary quality bud is about 14-18% in THC content typically. The stuff you get from your dealer at the McDonald's parking lot is closer to 7% in THC content.

If you were smoking weed back in the 60s, that stuff was about 1-3% in THC content. So yes the weed is much stronger than what it used to be.

Nonsmokers or people who smoke less than once a month can still tell the difference between schwag and dispensary quality when they smoke because it's literally twice as strong or more!

Anyone hear of popcorn weed? What exactly is it?

by Anonymousreply 8103/31/2013

r36, marijuana has evolved from saw-toothed leaves to whatever those clumps are. It doesn't even look like the same plant.

by Anonymousreply 8203/31/2013

The medical marijuana proposition passed before I moved back to CA so I wasn't aware of all its provisions, one of which is that people are able to grow up to six mature plants at once. I'm in the habit of taking a lot of long walks for exercise and would marvel about how many places I passed by smelled like weed at the oddest times. Like 8:00 in the morning or mid-afternoon. Really pungent stuff. I thought it was odd and assumed people were home and toking at up at all hours, when I read that people cultivate in their gardens. Wow. What a shift in attitudes, but it's caused a problem with intruders/thieves running through backyards in search of weed. Our city council is considering banning outdoor growth. It's not quite like growing prize tomatoes.

by Anonymousreply 8303/31/2013

It's like a weed brownie R81. It's popcorn made with cannabutter and most often with some sort of caramel sauce to dilute the cannabutter taste. Other edibles made with either cannabis or hash you'll see at dispensaries are lollipops, tootsie rolls, cookies, muffins, olive oil.

by Anonymousreply 8403/31/2013

can you get high when you eat it in food like that?

by Anonymousreply 8503/31/2013

I think popcorn weed is like mid-grade. Not schwag nut not dro.

by Anonymousreply 8603/31/2013

If you are an infrequent smoker, then the edibles should work well. If you are a frequent smoker, not so well. I find the high to be different from a smoking high, likely a combination of the grade of weed used and the fact it's absorbed through the digestive tract over time. It's more of a "body high" after some mild, initial euphoria. It takes longer to take an effect and lasts longer. This is important to consider. Depending on how much is ingested, you could be looking at a 4-6 hour buzz. It's an investment of time.

One of the best is "Russian Concussion." It's THC mixed with almond milk and honey. It's very nice in a cup of tea in the evening. For some folks, a couple of teaspoons is enough, others use a lot more.

by Anonymousreply 8703/31/2013

thanks, R87. "Russian Concussion" sounds interesting.

I always found that regular weed did next to nothing for me.

by Anonymousreply 8803/31/2013

It might be what you were smoking (poor grade). Another common issue is that novice smokers (as in never smoked anything before) have to learn how to do it. People have to learn to tolerate the smoke, scratchiness, and coughing to actually hold the smoke in the lungs where the THC and CBD (cannabinoid with anxiolytic/pain lessening effects) are absorbed into the blood stream. Some people can't smoke effectively. It is initially very unpleasant.

Of course, at the other end of the spectrum are heavy users who develop a tolerance and require a lot more smoking to feel effect. Some of these people go on a 2-6 week "holiday" so their tolerance diminishes again.
