None for me. I prefer being sober, straight, unaltered, whatever. There are enough other feelgood things to do, it just has no value to me. Funny thing was being interviewed regarding my past, telling the guy that yes, I had tried it but no, it wasn’t a recurring part of my life. He kept asking me in, you know, several different ways, WHY I didn’t think it was anything great. I tried telling him how much I loved bicycling, hiking, and other similar things, but he acted like he didn’t believe it. It was like...trying to tell a stranger about rock and roll.

I gave it up in '79 when I started working in criminal justice. I couldn't see how I could justify doing both while people were serving time for it. I never had all that much enthusiasm for it but it was a social thing and I never liked the super-charged stuff. Now, 40 years later, most of my friends (70 somethings) are into it. Some are just using it for (legal) meds while others are recreational users. It isn't fully "legal" yet but there isn't much enforcement going on. I'm not really into it now but will not turn it down if offered. Some friends advocate CBD oil for everything from hiccups to hair loss.

I've tried it my whole life but never works for me. I never get a "buzz". It does create very restful, uninterrupted sleep though.

The couple of times I felt "something" (edibles) it was unpleasant: time warps and everything seemed repetitious. Not enjoyable.

SIGH. I wish! I'm glad for others positive results, though.

I tried it a few times in my early 20s, but haven't since.


If I should ever start suffering severe pain issues, I would certainly give it a try.

I’ve aged out of being able to metabolize it quickly. It now turns me into a vegetable. I can browse C-D posts if I wanted to be a vegetable.

Does cerebral parsley turnip when you root around here too mulch? Do you carrot all about thyme passing by or not give a fig? Do you have grate expectations for small potatoes? I yam grateful to have bean a mung those who derived some peas when retiring lettuce enjoy the fruits of our labors.

I took one toke when I was 32 and was very disappointed that I didn't feel anything. That was it for me.

It's a veritable word salad - cannabis induced?
