no

now let's make this a general stoner/drug thread, so I can ask my question.
What weed should I use for making my own spacecake?
A lot of cheap weed or not so much of expensive shit? I heard that quantity is mostly important in spacecake, not sure if that's true?

It definitely makes you less productive, generally unreliable, and useless in anything requiring physical activity or fast mental acuity.

But that's not "intelligence".

24/7 stoner waste of space here.

I wouldn't say it makes you dumber, but it does make you slower. That's not a problem if you're around other stoners but other people take it as retardation. It's like it takes an extra second to word stuff and a lot of people don't have time for that.

I'd say my memory isn't what it used to be, but only for dumb stuff. I can remember dates and important things, but I couldn't tell you what I wore yesterday, for example. It's kind of like your brain gets lazy and doesn't bother to remember unimportant shit.

As for actual intelegence, I'd say there's a certain level of understanding that being high can help you achive. Sometimes being outside of your own thought processes can really help with critical thinking, and I often only 'get' complex stuff I'm studying after mulling it over with a joint. Does it make me more intelligent? No, of course not, but it does allow me to see things from other perspectives.

The downside is it's a lot easier to think something is profound when high, only to find it's dumb when you're sober.

yes, i am a caricature of the person i used to be because i smoked half an ounce of weed a week for ten years. i don't think about anything anymore, i can't do anything without weed, if i have to go for several hours without weed i start getting panic attacks and suicidal thoughts.

Not really. It just lowers inhibitions and makes you care less about what you do. Just be responsible and dont juat dab out all the time. Smoke and do stuff, get used to it. Then get higher when you are comfortable.

Use crockpot to make butter from high quality herb. On low it takes me about 8hrs. Use coconut oil instead of butter. And for the love of god strain it well. Replace butter in recipe. There are loads of guides. I like a high thc sativa like lemon diesel, with a mellow hybrid like girl scout cookies or blue dream. Make sure to grind it a bit, i get best results with a bit of keef added.

Its a psychoactive drug, its generally detrimental to mental acuity. You can experience a feeling totally absorbed in whatever you are doing, i.e. clutching a ball and dodging people. The intense concentration will put you in the "zone" more easily but it doesn't make you quicker or smarter.

the brain is actually meant to toss out useless info, like what you wore or ate the day before, so not remembering is no big deal
>>
>>686258088
Especially if you're under the age of 25.

The brain of an adolescent is very plastic and able to create strong, lasting neuro-connections relative easily.
One's ability to strengthen one's aptitude is significantly reduced past the age of around 25 years.
After that, one's ability to strengthen one's bare basic ability to do things like memorize things, calculate, all other things stemming from that is just significantly reduced.
However, one's ability to recall stored information quickly and keep long-term memory is significantly increased.
Also, one can still learn and apply various techniques to improve one's ability of memorizing things and what not.
Knowledge, intelligence, and determination can compensate for each other.

Answer is yes. It can give you psychosis if you use it long enough. These guys are always like, "i dont care about anything" and then they are impulsive as fuck, understand situations completely wrong and get sudden rage over nothing, usually when their mom asks when they are going to get a job.

What is pie crust
>>
>>686261822
I've used kief in space cakes before and it's a great time, yeah it's already on the buds but if you grind it first you lose some and it also just makes your cakes really fucking strong. I was high for 8 hours when I first put kief in my cakes.
>>
>>686262172
so nice to have these first world problems, eh?

you do use water in your crockpot as well right? makes it easier to separate the oil from the plant material. no straining needed as the plant crap settles on the bottom, and in the morning you scrape out all the solidified oil that was floating on the water. the more you know.
>>
>>686262033
Cause and effect and all that.

I started smoking weed after a long period of severe depression. I know that I'm smoking to escape reality, but that's kind of the point. Can't speak for the anon you replied to, but for me drugs came long after being done with life.
>>
>>686258088
No it doesn't, there's studies that show a correlation with an increase in intelligence when you smoke for a short while and then stop.

If you smoke every day in your room and never go out and do anything then yeah it definitely makes you dumber, however if you don't abuse it and go out and find fun shit to do whilst high or enjoy the odd chilling session then no, it doesn't make you less intelligent.
>>
>>686262332
Oh man. Pie crust is decent or good wax crumble mixed with keef. Its super good. I had a few donuts made from a shop (like little wax cheerios) and one destroyed me from 5am to 5am.
>>
>>686262412
i usually run about 5 lbs thru a closed loop system. i dont need to add the kief but whatever you like best and is easiest to boot
>>
>>686258088
It does. It clouds your mind and makes listening to reason harder. Obviously those on it won't believe because they get caught up on simple thoughts and refuse to change their mind. It affects your brain. If sober is 100% full brain function, smoking constantly sets you at about 95% brain function.

I'm a neurosurgeon that's being practicing for 10 years and have seen the the MRI and CAT scans of patients who have smoked compared to those that haven't.
>>
>>686259507
I swear, smoking weed has given me some really insightful objective thoughts on certain things in my life and it has helped me determine what I should and shouldn't be stressing about (mostly shouldn't).

So grateful for having weed. I can still function on a normal level (unless I smoke too much) and it helps greatly with my depression, allows me to get through days without feeling like a pile of shit.

>>686259507
Plenty of my friends are mechanics and they often light up a doobie and inspect the engine for a bit. I myself am a bit of a aspiring eco-engineer and have made solar powered boats, automatic garden watering systems, sheds, and a bunch of other shit ives just dreamed up in my head while completely baked and figured out how to make it all work together, usually after alot of baked reading and planning.

I think it just comes down to the fact that your body will make you better at what you do more of. Whether its lifting more weight, solving harder problems or whether its doing essentially nothing, your body/brain/nerves will make you more energy efficient at doing it.
>>
>>686262493
Yep. Lately I have been trying to use a small jar in the crockpot, and put my water around it. Its been much cleaner and tastier than before. But i had to burp it hourly or it would pop.
>>
I remember when I first started smoking, I had no idea what kief was. My friends would run out of weed and say something like 'What about kief?', which I took to mean 'Lets go and ask Keith if he's got some weed.'
>>
>>686262553
Smoke a good hybrid, and hang out with friends. Id suggest sports, gym, or movies. Do that frequently. If no friends. Watch feel good cartoons and do 20 situps, pushups, and squats every day for the next month. It will help your dopamine.
>>
>>686262708
Same here. I think it's understandable that people who don't experience this don't see the point in weed though, it's such a personal thing.

>>686262722
Maybe it's just that weed cuts out the 'background noise' in your head. I find I'm able to focus on something specifically a lot easier after a fatty.
>>
>>686261858
>and life is boring af.
Marijuana is psychologically addictive.
Your brain needs time to fix your neurochemistry after you quite, the THC leaves you desensitized.

It was like when I was younger in high school.
I'd jack off every morning, once or twice during the day, and then before I went to bed.
I did that every day.
I'd also have sex with my girlfriend every week, multiple days a week.
When having sex with her, I couldn't get a full erection, I literally had erectile dysfunction.
My penis was so desensitized, I could get a 20min blowjob, stay in one penile vaginal intercourse position for 40min thrusting non stop, and still not ejaculate once, no pre-ejaculation or anything.
You know how people develop thick callouses on their feet? The skin you can pinch off with nail clippers and not feel a thing. Or the stuff you could grind off with a cheese grater.
It's like having duct tape for skin.
That's what my penis was like because it was so desensitized.

I appreciate the advise but my head is physically wrong. I was born with Hydrocephalus which has (very luckily) only effected my mood. It's not so bad, most people with the condition end up vegetables to some extent, but I can't shake it in the same way some people can. Such is life, I guess.

To that respect I'd rather just live happily and not worry to much about it. I've tried everything under the sun; being strict with diet and exercise, mindfulness, hedonism, the works. Nothing does it for me.

I take meds to alter my brain chemistry, so I see weed as no different. They're both drugs that make life more bearable, which is all I really want.

I understand the sentiment in your last post, I really do. It's annoying not finding any satisfaction in anything sober, but after 20+ years of that I'm just happy to find something so (relatively) harmless that makes life enjoyable again.
