I’m a binge drinker. And screwed a super slim body with weight. Plus family gets upset. Was hoping weed tea once or twice a week would help. Didn’t want to smoke a joint as I quit smoking with great difficulty. In India you don’t get good quality weed. They stuff the bag with bad stuff and put some good stuff on top. So first time I bought after a couple of good experiences I got nasty trips. I felt my head was jerking in two ways. For more than two hours. Dry mouth. Was sipping water every two minutes. I thought it was a bad bunch of weed, so got some better quality stuff. Even washed it before making tea. After a couple of days of a mild effect, last night I’d almost the same nasty experience. I didn’t lie down so that made it more bearable. I’m wondering whether I’ve some kind of into,erance or am I doing something wrong in making the tea. I weigh .5 grams very carefully before using. Yesterday I even had it in two batches with a gap of two hours so I don’t overdose. I really want to quit drinking. So what do I do? Haven’t tried vaping . Have tried Leary biscuits though. Same experience.
Wow... I’m so sorry you are struggling! Are you using something like milk or coconut milk to make your tea? Water will not extract the medicinal properties from the plant, And when you’re using something like milk, you do not want to let it boil, just heat the Cannabis in the milk gently without boiling. And I’m sorry that the medicine isn’t great, but keep in mind that the psychotropic compounds in the plant are not affecting the regions in your brain responsible for breathing, but they do mellow out your hippocampus and for some people that can create anxiety or paranoia. The hippocampus is responsible for helping you filter out much of the information your senses take in at all times, when it’s mellowed from the medicine, you are slightly more aware of what’s around you, which is why a lot of musicians and artists have used cannabis over the years. I always recommend being active to some degree with medicine in your system, rather than just sitting around and thinking. Go for a hike, play some music, read a book… Do whatever you like to do sober, while you are medicated on Cannabis. And one other thing, the medicine tells you that you are dehydrated if you haven’t had enough water, that’s why we get cotton mouth. If you were really really thirsty, the medicine makes your body want to drink water. I hope some of this info has helped to some small degree, stay lifted, peace…
That is great that you are trying to take your wellness into your own hands! Best of luck! Perhaps @Cannabis Cures or @YOGANJA or @StoneyScorpio might have advice here?
