Guest review by Calvin Kushman.
Hello my fellow cannabis enthusiasts! CK is back again to light another joint with you. In today’s sesh, we’ll be smoking a lovely Indica, Blackberry Kush. As the name implies, it smells like fresh picked berries. There is a definite fuel scent, strangely reminiscent of the Sour Diesel strain. I’ve rolled (actually packed) a nice cone joint and we’re ready to go!
TIME TO LIGHT UP:
At first light after the initial burnt paper taste, I detect a sweet berry as I inhale and more sweet fruit notes within the exhale. In the background of each hit is the unmistakable note of fuel. The smoke itself feels cool and has a rather soothing effect on my throat.
I feel a bit of pressure building up in my head and I realized just now that I should have eaten some food prior to smoking. The effects of Indica are usually debilitating for me but the effects seem to reduce the intensity a little. I’m at halfway through the joint and I begin to feel a bit tingly.
INSANITY SETS IN:
There’s some old sitcom on TV. I start laughing at one of the jokes and my laughter continues and quickly evolves into an uncontrollable fit and I fall to my knees laughing.
I buckle over onto the floor, my face twisted into an expression of utter insanity. My face must be dark red and it feels like I’m still laughing but no sound is coming out of my mouth.
I suddenly, and desperately, struggle for a deep breath. With some masculine effort, I resist the urge to laugh again. Slowly, I take deep breaths as my pulse returns to normal. My stomach muscles ache so badly.
As I regain mental awareness I notice the joint is out. Time to light up a second one.
I sit down in my Lazy Boy recliner. I can’t remember what the fuck was so funny.
By the time I finish the second joint, vertigo seems to have taken control of my brain.
SIDE EFFECTS. GOOD OR BAD?
I think, generally, the sensation I’m experiencing now can best be described by two words: Constant Elevation.
There’s a tingly feeling that moves from feet to brain. My stomach is on a magic carpet ride up to my brain. I have to sit up straight and stretch my back and then lay down again.
I repeat this exercise for a minute and then it becomes annoying. I feel a bit nauseated. If I smoke more I will definitely throw up. I try to walk it off and then a sudden shot of vertigo cold cocks me and I lose my balance.
I’m just going to lay here and remain consciously comatose for now.
An hour later I sit up quickly in my chair. My thighs are asleep and it feels like I was raped by a porcupine. The rumbling in my stomach is vibrating the chair.
I need to spend about $40 at McDonalds to settle down.
Maybe I’ll smoke another joint on my way there.
Thank you Calvin for another fine review.
From Green Doctor Network:
“Sativa strain types are known to produce an uplifting and cerebral high that is typically very energizing and stimulating. Sativa are known to make you laugh uncontrollably or engage in in-depth conversations about the meaning of life. These strains typically cause you to analyze the human experience and think creatively, which makes Cannabis Sativa very popular among philosophers, artists and musicians. Some Sativa have even been found to enhance lights and sounds, making music, movies, and the rest of your surroundings more vibrant than ever before.”
“The effects produced by Indica strain types are very relaxing and narcotic-like, typically providing a full-body, or “couch-locked” effect. Indica are perfect for those days spent curled up on the couch watching TV, or surfing the web. However, most people use Cannabis Indica after a long day at work to relieve stress, provide full-body pain relief, and help them fall asleep at night.
“Indica strains are ideal for chronic pain, muscle spasms, anxiety, nausea, appetite stimulation, and sleep deprivation. Individuals who suffer from diseases like multiple sclerosis, fibromyalgia, lupus, sleep apnea and insomnia tend to benefit from the effects of Cannabis Indica.”
“There are a wide range of cannabis strains in between Indica and Sativa. These strains are known as “Hybrids” and show traits directly related to the genetics in its lineage. Hybrids can be broken down into three basic categories:
1). “Sativa-dominant Hybrids: Cerebral high with a relaxing body effect. Provides physical and mental relief.
2). “Even Hybrids (50/50): Ideal strains for people seeking a perfect balance of head and body.
3). “Indica-dominant Hybrids: These strains provide a full-body pain relief, with a relaxing head high. Recommended for nighttime use to go to sleep, or daytime relief from minor pain. These strains are perfect for patients who suffer from all types of autoimmune diseases as well as insomnia or depression.”
According to Popular Science:
“If you’re an adult who has smoked marijuana in the past year, you’re one of about 30 million Americans who has done so, according to a new survey by the National Institute on Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism (NIAAA). That’s 9.5% of our population.”
Did you know that there are hundreds more weed review sites than cigar review sites?
THIS IS NOT A RECOMMENDATION TO CONSUME ILLEGAL SUBSTANCES. I am simply trying to educate and shine the light on the medical uses for marijuana. We currently have 25 states that allow legal weed dispensaries in the United States. There is a lot of enlightenment in not only those states…but the other 25 who make it a misdemeanor to a felony for possession. If you choose to use medical marijuana, please do all the research you can before deciding on what is best for you.
Remember…Never smoke cannabis and drive. It is illegal the same as driving drunk in the law’s eyes. Not to mention how dangerous it is. Even if you are only driving 5mph because the cannabis has made you paranoid.
