Sex and Weed
Category: Culture | Posted on Thu, October, 3rd 2013 by THCFinder
This will probably be a pretty personal subject for some people but there's two very different sides to the topic of pot and sex. There are plenty of people that say that pot makes sex so much better... But science says differently. In my personal experience, the only hindrance of smoking and having sex is that everything seems slower, so it's slightly harder to initiate an intimate situation... But once that obstacle has been overcome, high sex is the best sex.
Dr. Juan C. Paredes, a doctor of psychiatry in Miami, says that smoking before sex can lead to weak orgasms or non at all. Not only that, but the doctor states that prolonged and habitual use of the plant can lead to erectile disfunction and an overall disinterest in sex at all. Smoking marijuana also can lead to a low sperm count in men, which can cause problems when starting a family.
On the other hand, I stumbled upon an article written by a man named Steve Davis. He ventured to a marijuana grow op in Northern California and experienced the ultimate surprise when he realized that the female growers were actually using bubblehash and resin from the plants as a female version of Viagra. The girls on the farm explained to Davis that by inserting the bubblehash and resin in to their lady parts, they could experience incredibly increased sexual desires, as well as overwhelming orgasms.
Unfortunately, it's super difficult to find any answer one way or the other. Surveys conducted over the years and most of the results have been so close to half and half, that I've come to the conclusion that sexual desires while stoned are directly related to the a) the strain that was smoked and b) the person's mood before they smoke. If you're sitting on the couch smoking an Indica strain, you're probably going to end up with couch lock and not want to do anything. Sativa may make you get up and sexually charge your partner. Or perhaps it's the other way around for you!
If a person smokes and is in a crappy mood, I highly doubt they'll be wanting to interact with anyone. Marijuana makes it easy for you to vanish within yourself. A bad mood will create a problem because you'll be so introverted that your partner won't be able to convince you to hug them, let alone sleep with them. Bad moods are definitely a sex-stopper. Marijuana may or may not be but is entirely up to the person who smokes it.
Some Anti-Marijuana Slogans
Category: Culture | Posted on Wed, October, 2nd 2013 by THCFinder
We've all seen the hilarious anti-pot ads that groups put out. If you smoke pot, you'll run over a kid on a bike or possibly you'll end up looking like a delated balloon. Highly unlikely. I don't know if they believe that their tactics actually work because I don't ever remember being afraid of pot after seeing anti-smoking ads. The only actual campaign that I ever believed to be effective was the Meth Project, in which they showed the deterioration of the human body while addicted to meth. But weed isn't meth... Not even close.
The following are slogans that have been used in anti-marijuana campaigns. They don't make a lot of sense and they certainly don't assist in helping to keep marijuana illegal. I wonder if the people who created these slogans know that they're not taken seriously by their alleged target audience. Either way, for your enjoyment. Also, they all seem to rhyme. You've been warned.
- "Put that stash in the trash!"
Did you pay for the stash? No? Then why are you telling me to throw it away? There was money involved in the acquisition of the stash and throwing it out is like tossing out the contents of your wallet. Anyone who spends their hard earned money on bud isn't going to readily toss their jar of bud in a trashcan.
- "Pot makes your brain rot... So let's not."
Television and the media make your brain rot. Marijuana enlightens you to see all sides of the argument, rather than stay close minded. In my experience, the people who are the most difficult to convince are the ones who refuse to open their mind to alternate possibilities. I say smoke pot, become a smarter person.
- "An ounce of weed a day takes your life away!"
I could absolutely smoke an ounce in a day! I would have a blunt in hand during every single activity. Unfortunately, weed is expensive and I'm very limited with funds so I'll stick to the small amount of bud that I smoke. Ideally, if my jar just refilled itself every time it ran out would be amazing. An ounce a day sounds perfect.
- "Say not to pot!"
This one doesn't even really make sense. I think it's a little far reaching to try to make these slogans always rhyme. The reasoning behind the rhyming idea must be the fact that the human brain seems to remember simple things. Unfortunately, potheads aren't simple thinkers.
- "Get high on life, not drugs!"
Let us get right on that while our country bombs Syria, Iraq, and whatever other place we feel compelled to involved ourselves in. Getting high on life might've been a somewhat accomplishable feat when there weren't so many rules holding us in place. However, when the American dream consists of working a 9-5 just to pay for your existence doesn't seem like something you can get high off. So do you want to smoke a joint?
- "Are you stoned or just stupid?"
There's no need to turn to insults. Telling stoners they're stupid is only going to make them smoke more. Turing to aggression won't help either cause. Grade school insults aren't going to make people hate marijuana.
The key is to just know your facts. Avoid listening to obnoxious propaganda that isn't backed by any facts. A lot of anti-drug campaigns use scare tactics to keep people away from smoking. Telling potheads that they're going to go crazy, kill themselves, or even others isn't going to work basically because it's not true! Stoners (with the exception of a few) are some of the most calm, logical people that I've encountered. Being educated is the first step to legalization!
Ice In The Bong; Yes Or No?

Ice In The Bong; Good Or Bad?
Most bongs that are on the market today come equipped with ice catchers. This added tool makes it possible for you to put ice cubes in your bong, which people like because it cools the smoke before you inhale it. However, there are some rumors surrounding ice in bongs. While it may cool the smoke, you're also inhaling a ton of water vapor from the ice cubes. This can lead to severe bronchitis and lung problems, as inhaling too much water vapor isn't good for your lungs.
When the hot smoke from the bowl passes over the cubes in the bong, the ice melts in to the smoke, which goes straight to your lungs. It's extremely difficult for me to find any sort of studies relating to this issue. Mostly, it's all forums of stoners bickering back and forth about their opinions. I turned to the E-cigs that people are smoking these days. While the Cigs aren't the same as ice in a bong, the selling point is that you're inhaling water vapor, rather than smoke. Unfortunately, Dr. Mike Feinstein - a spokesman for the American Lung Association - says that these products are unsafe and are potentially worse than actual cigarettes.
In my personal experience, ice in a bong hurts the hell out of my lungs. As someone who has suffered from severe bronchitis due to over inhalation of second hand smoke, I can definitely feel the difference between a bong with ice and one without. When I smoke a bong with ice in it, it's almost like the smoke freezes in my lungs, making it extremely hard to breathe. When I smoke without ice, this feeling doesn't happen. I'm not sure if my lungs are just damaged because I used to smoke cigarettes and because of the bronchitis but I do not smoke with ice in my bongs... Ever. If I want to cool the smoke down, I fill my bong with water that's been in the refrigerator. That way, I'm inhaling just the smoke, without the vapor from the cubes.
As I stated before, there really is no right answer to this question. My personal belief is that you shouldn't put ice in your bong. But that's just me. Smoking itself can be argued about whether or not it's healthy. There are most certainly healthier ways to get high other than smoking. It all comes down to what you think you should do. Cold water in the bong works perfectly for me although I definitely prefer to eat my weed over anything else. Be healthy and safe, fellow stoners! :)

Marijuana has been a staple in my life for the past six years. It helps with my anxiety, eating, sleeping, and most important of all, it gives me the ability to handle the people that I deal with at work. For four years, I've been a bartender in a colorful variation of establishments. Since I don't drink alcohol and don't particularly care for it, dealing with drunk coworkers and even drunker patrons gets extremely old after a while. It's become a routine for me to get as stoned as I possibly can before heading to the bar because let's face it, drunk people get annoying when you're sober... And they get annoying fast.
I've perfected the art of being baked at work and I figured that I would share some of these tips with you in case you're like me as I'm sure most of you are. Working stoned can be extremely scary when you're not used to it. I used to avoid smoking before work because I was petrified that my boss would find out. These days, I'm pretty sure that all three of my bosses know that I'm a huge stoner and write for both THCFinder and Stonerdays. They even read the articles I put out.
The key to working stoned is to just always act stoned. Staying in the mindset that I'm still high seems to work for me. When I first started at my current job, I learned that this method is perfect. Thinking that you're stoned with create the placebo effect almost... If you think it hard enough, your eyes will still hang low and you'll pull off that slow smile that stoners have adopted as their trademark. It will help you slip under the radar of annoying bosses that have nothing better to do than wonder if all of their employees are on drugs.
Sometimes, being stoned at work is the only way to make it through a day. It even becomes necessary to smoke at work occasionally. Just make sure that you're still accomplishing the things that are required. Being a fully functioning stoner only proves that marijuana isn't the laziest drug ever and not all of us are slackers. By being able to function while stoned just shows how well we can manage ourselves! People take medicine at work all the time and I believe that people who use marijuana for medical reasons should be able to as well! Just keep looking permafried! ;)
Smoking with friends vs. Smoking Solo
Category: Culture | Posted on Sat, September, 28th 2013 by THCFinder
Smoking has created thousands of friendships over the years and strengthened just as many. Even so, there are always people who would rather smoke by themselves before smoking with friends. This is something that definitely depends on the person. Some people are just anti social or may have had bad experiences with weed thieves in the past, which is enough to make anyone prefer to toke up alone. There are pros and cons to each of these situations, whether you're a lone wolf or a social butterfly.
Smoking with friends can be a really good time! It's fun to share silly stories and watch bad horror movies together or go on adventures. Having friends around also means that you're not always smoking your weed which may or may not prolong your stash (Depends on how much you guys are smoking!). There are downsides to getting baked with buddies though. Sometimes, there is that one person who never seems to have their own weed and they always seem to smoke yours... Even when they brag about the bag of fire they just bought. If you're such good friends, a packed bowl should be filled by both people, not just always one. Sometimes, friends don't have weed and that's fine but every single time you see them? I'm sorry but they might be using you for your buds. Another bad friend type is the kind that never actually inhales the weed. They just kind of cough all the smoke out of their mouth along with a spray of spit and who knows what else. These are the kinds of friends that you don't need to have around and will only hinder your smoking.
When you're alone, it might be quite but it's a wonderful time to sit back and think. Just to think about life and work in a calm manner. I love to get baked by myself. I don't have to share my weed and it's quiet. There are people who absolutely prefer solitude to groups and there's nothing wrong with it, contrary to what others might think. Just because one prefers to be alone doesn't mean that they're super sad and bummed. Smoking alone provides a good environment for work and things that require focus. While social smoke sessions with the occasional friend are cool and somewhat refreshing, being alone (to me) is more appealing. While there are positives to smoking alone, there are also negatives. Being by yourself can be a bummer when you turn to make a silly comment and remember that no one else is there. It's also a bummer when you look at your weed jar and it's empty and you realize that you smoked it all yourself!
Everyone's personality is different and some are more social than others. Bad experiences also effect a person's ability to smoke with others, especially if a bad situation has been encountered more than once. But a burn cruise with buddies is definitely something that should be done at least once a month! Remember to respect your fellow stoners and their personal choices! Whether you're a social smoker or not, we all love Mary Jane and that's what's important!
