My wife and I haven't smoked for more than 25 years, so decided, since it's legal in Washington, to give it a try. Went down to the local smoke shop, Slowburn, and bought some goods. Saturday afternoon we lit up, not knowing what to expect. Sad truth is it was no fun; we both didn't like the feeling of lack of control, and we just didn't get into it. I don't think we'll try again. We were actually disappointed, as we had good memories of being stoned and being amazingly insightful and witty. Are we just too old?

Please note this topic does mention 'stone', which is sort of like rock, so this could be construed as climbing related. But it's not.

YeahBaby. . . this new fangled stuff ain't the NebraskaNoHigh of our youth.

Tried the new stuff after a good 30 years of not even being around the stuff. . . and . . . it's really strong and it made me feel like dog squeeze!

When high, were you still able to distinguish physician from physicist? or astrologer from astronomer? if so no worries! Don't be so hard on yourselves...

sometimes you just get used to sobriety and being stoned just seems like a waste of time.

Yeah HFCS, knew a physician from a PhD. Just didn't enjoy it, despite Great Expectations (Mr. Dickens, by the way) and was disappointed the old rush didn't happen.

Get some low grade "day smoke" ......

^ "day smoke" could be the problem... possibly the OP selected a sativa, which I find too rushy/heady even for my seasoned self. If there's a next time, I'd say try a high-grade pure indica strain and vape a single hit...

I agree, Guy. Someone who hasn't smoked cannabis for 25 years would be better served by high CBD, low THC. I bought my first legal oh zee at Sumpter Nugget pre-eclipse. Everything was labeled with CBD/THC percentage.

Shop around for a tasty - lite variety. The counter people are there to help.

Tad! I'll take the hippie lettuce over wine everytime! Wine is disgusting...and the high?! Makes me feel drunk!

I agree about the CBD thing, but still stand by the indica suggestion. The ideal option would be high CBD/low THC flower *and* a high THC indica- then mix the two as desired. And still vape if possible.

I tried almost everything that floated thru Camp 4 in the 70's. Never liked pot....not the comatose inducing stuff back then or the high octane version today.

Good on ya for giving it a go . . . there is a reason you have not smoked in 25 years, it simply was not your thing to begin with. You have rediscovered why you don't smoke ganja . . . stick with your fermented beverages and call it good. Different strokes for different folks, please do not dis on jah herb.
