    Does smoking pot equal shit for brains

    In my experience doing it many eons ago I lean towards yes. The reason I'm asking is my PCA is a daily user. Morning noon night. She thinks it's not a big deal, as she says. I've been smoking a long time I don't forget anything. Well that's partly true. But what about being a slacker? OK I'm stopping here. P.O. ! = high B.P.

    There is, in fact, question that weed impairs cognitive performance.

    Some of the most intelligent people I know smoke weed. Top in their fields. But yes, it does effect cognitive ability.

    That said, I'd take a heavy cannabis smoker over a heavy drinker any day. Just as a comparison.

    Indeed, if there are underlying cognitive impairment from something like anxiety or pain then it can help, but I believe the strain and CBD: THC to is important.

    Like anything else, it depends. One&done may take the edge off and not much more. But if you smoke 2 joints and then smoke 2 more, expect to be stupid.

    If you can't get unpleasantly high, like way too high, then I'd say you're definitely a hardcore pothead. Myself I prefer a small amount of intoxication whether it be alcohol or other substances (which I have never partaken in due to vocational requirements), so maybe I'm the wrong person to be assessing your situation. There are plenty of people who visit Denver or Seattle or wherever and have themselves an 18 hour room spinning, nauseating nightmare of a time because they accidentally ate too many edibles.

    If you think you can't get any higher, would you eat 1000 mg of THC? Why not? I mean it's just gonna be the same high, right?

    Distillates is over 90% pure THC. There is a point to where you cant get higher, its not like alcohol. Swim remembers smoking a decent size joint with a friend and shortly after swim finished, friend wanted to light up another one. Swim said it would be a waste......for the very reason I stated.

    Swim has eaten an edible that put swim DOWN, but eat another one and swim would not be "more down". Eating another one, depending on the gap of time would just prolong the high, not magnify it. That's swim's experience though.
