    Sounds like your brother needs to quit too. Go and see an NLP trained psychologist.

    I did have one LSD flashback, but I was running a 101-degree fever at the time, so whether it was the LSD or the fever, I dunno.

    It was very annoying.
    I wanted to sleep, the room was busy growing fungal looking puffs,everything was going "WHOMPWHOMPWHOMPWHOMPWHOMP" and I kept seeing a skeleton made of fire moving in stop-motion every time I shut my eyes.

    I had a very severe and intense hallucinatory episode once when I came down with a knock - out influenza quite suddenly. I was in the big city with some friends checking out an antique art auction house, when on the way home I began feeling poorly. Got a very high fever, heavy body aches and felt very weak. When they dropped me off, I went in the house, hit the bed, crashed and burned. Could not get out of bed until the next morning. Part way through the evening I began hallucinating vividly. I saw lots of stuff that was not there, but was so sick I really didn't react.

    It wasn't a flashback though, it was a very nasty flu. Had a similar reaction to the pneumonia vaccination 3 years ago when I got that. No hallucinations from that though, just the shakes and aches, put me down and out for 24 hours in bed. Was told later that I should not have gotten the flu vaccine and the pneumonia vaccine at the same time, and that likely is what caused that reaction.

    If it had been heavy metal poisoning then it would last a lot longer in the body, however the chemical make-up itself is biodegradable and doesn't contain any exotics that the body can't breakdown.

    On the subject of contamination, in some places the method used for smuggling can cause the contamination, in England there was a type of solid cannabis referred to as "Diesel" it was so called this because it was smuggled in through concealment in diesel tanks on lorries. This mean the substance itself had been submerged and therefore soaked diesel into the actual substance, obviously this meant it would burn far too easily and caused a greater level of respiratory disorders and various side effects. You can of course say "Well people should be capable enough to spot this" well the reality is that it was often sold to Kids checking out the substance as a whole because they don't know any different, it's illegal, they can't ask anyone and they can't really protect themselves from a con.

    Yeah, and I recall that the Britons have 'soapbar' which is a chemical cocktail that often has nothing to do with cannabis, though it is sold as a type of hashish.

    However, I restricted my initial statement to the metropolitan Detroit area and standard trade practice, an area I know well.

    hmm street weed with chemical additives... that might explain why I would get "withdrawals" from street weed, but the dispensary herb doesn't trigger any withdrawals whatsoever.

    That's what I have been trying to explain.

    I've found that most of the green color can be avoided by careful straining. Also probably don't grind up the plant matter too fine - you want shake, but not outright dust, going into it. Although, I never really eat the butter straight, so maybe I just haven't noticed the color so much.

    Yeah, those are kind of gross. Plus you can cook just about anything with butter, so no need to limit yourself to brownies. I usually cook cake instead. Unlike brownies, nobody expects cake to be psychoactive :]

    You gotta be a bit careful with this stuff though. The concentrations of cannibinoids that you can get into your bloodstream via eating are way higher than what smoking will achieve, and can last much longer. I've had friends who'd never eaten weed before take slices of cake for long plane flights, and end up having unpleasant experiences. Also, it takes a while to set in, and people will get impatient and smoke after having eaten, only to end up much higher than they'd planned to get.

    I know a guy who uses a vaporizer on his buds, and then sells the result to an old-timer that's nostalgic for the weak weed of his youth. Pretty good racket if you can put it together...

    The kicker is that it is quite a chore to really get all of the residual isopropanal out. The recommended method is to leave it in a pan on a warm stove (not hot enough to simmer or burn the product, just enough to keep it hot) for 5+ hours. Dispenseries are very sensitive to this, since it's a common method for growers to increase profits from shake, and will reject product with any detectable hint of residual chemicals.

    This is by far the best quality smokeable end-product you can make out of shake/waste materials. Quality bubble hash will sell for a nice price, and with good reason. But it is quite a pain to produce, and the filter systems can be expensive.

    Pro-tip on this: use a silkscreen, and don't press directly on the materials to get them through the screen. Instead, simply place a vibrating object on the screen with them (electric massager, sex toy, cell phone set to vibrate, whatever). The less agitation you use, the less plant materials will get scraped through the screen in the process. Also, place a (clean!) mirror under the screen to collect the output and make it easy to gather up and press.

    All this messing around is bollocks. Just grow a load of 'persy', smoke it, eat it, drink it, get fu*&ed. Forget all the stages and chemicals. You could have been stoned already . . . LOL. Are you really that poor that you need to squeeze every drop of THC out of it?

    That is interesting . At the local weed shop ! Yeah they sell the stuff right out in the open here . All you need is a green card . To funny they call it a green card . WE were all trying to figure out ' What you talking about green card ( Marijuana card ) Any way at the local weed store they got a strain called Diesel, it ain't cause it was soaked in gasoline though . It is because it is so heavy laden with T.H.C. it taste like gasoline. It is kick your butt bad ass weed. One hit wonder weed that is so pungent that your momma can smell it 2 city blocks away . The Name must be a carry over from England just like those friggen Beatles and there long hair

    I think I might have . I will google it and see . Maybe not though , sound familiar , maybe not that song but another by the same group .

    O.K. I confess , I was a farmer in California for a part of my life . Back in the day when even in California they rolled you up for growing a god given weed . See that is why I believe in God . It says he gave us all the herbs of the earth to consume. Superseeds government law.
    The best weed I ever had was a strain from Lake Tahoe . Yeah there where 3 seeds in one once of weed and the shit was kick your dick in the dirt weed . So I got all 3 of the seeds to germinate and only one was female . So weed from 3 generations of Tahoe now growing in the Sacramento Valley in rich river bottom soil from the Sacramento River . That seed grew to be 14 ft . high and at least six ft. in diameter . It was not the amazing thing that 3 pounds of trimmed dried bud came of that plant but the taste and the high . You know what they say about California green bud . This was better. It made your normal kick butt better than Kona bud taste like shwag. It was the weed that all others are calibrated by now and let Me tell you the strains they got here in Missoula are mind blowing . One almost compared to that Tahoe strain . Don't go thinking I smoke the shit out of it either . I can tell by the smell like a good wine taster . By the crystal coating on the empty seed pods . How hair the stems are and many other factors . They all have cute little names too . One shop got busted for importing California weed into the state and from what I heard it was kick butt to extremes . Those poor suckers all got rolled up , but to no impact for there is a weed shop on every corner in Missoula . The feds tried to shut them down but our progressive City government would not Have it . Besides it is the new Gold Rush for Montana and people are making a killing selling weed and handing out green cards . They have these one day clinics where a doctor is on conference call on a computer . He will hand out 1500 card in a Day! IN A DAY !! 100 bucks for a card . All the patient does is say I got Pain . Then the Doc writes the script . I thought about getting one for someone told Me if I did he would pay Me 1500 bucks a month and give Me weed to smoke . I would have to have Him be my care giver and then he could grow six plants in my name as his patient . I wondered where that weed might be going . I decided against it

    Diesel Power was pretty good with that driving beat . There was this one sound in the song I really liked though . It almost sound like someone hitting a steel beam suspended in the air with a hammer . That was to cool. It also had a mechanical feel to the song . Not really techno and not really train clacking either yet modern type machinery sound . Maybe like factory type machinery . A good pushing rhythmic jam all the way. Can't say I have heard them before . Thanx for the sound

    I found that CD on sale really cheap, and it's great for weightlifting, especially that song.

    Check out more of their stuff on youtube. For me 'The Jilted Generation' is the best album (get a copy!) as it sits just in that evolutionary slot (of the band) between experimental underground beginnings and commercialisation. The Prodigy are pretty popular world wide. Enjoy!

    That would be short for "New York City Diesel", or NYCD or just 'diesel' as you noted. Very popular strain on the East coast US for many years now.

    Individual strains of cannabis contain differing quantities of terpenes, and there a lot of different terpenes. Each terpene has a distinct odor/aroma, and some indeed smell like petrochemicals while others smell like dirt or perfume. The most common and distinctive terpene smells like skunk, as in California Skunk #1 bred by Sam the Skunk Man back in the 1970's. That is also still around.

    I guess the question of the day today is whether the governor of Montana is going to sign that ipso facto repeal of medicinal marijuana that the Republicans, Tea Baggers and LEO have cobbled together and passed. This will be the repeal by restriction of a ballot issue that won by public vote, something that I consider a serious constitutional issue. When the government, a political party and professional law enforcement 'outvote' a popular vote we are in deep doo - doo. Especially when much of the LEO money came in from out - state. Kaka, IMHO.

    Last time I was in Tahoe I drank too much cheap wine at a beach party and almost drowned in the lake.
