I was never a fan of wine or beer when I drank with our friends because I felt like the buzz was muted & required drinking multiple servings just to get nice effects.
I favorite drinking straight whiskey or vodka or simply throwing a shot or more than one in a cold glass of cola. While I never became an alcoholic, I still appreciate a drink or more than one once or twice a week. It’s nice to have when sitting down to a special lunch with a neighbor or family member, or after a certainly stressful day of work. That’s when I’ll get out a bottle of Crown Royal whiskey or our favorite vodka, Tito’s from TX. But lately I have quit drinking after watching what it did to our aunt when he died from liver failure. There’s a lot of alcoholism in our family & I have to stay mindful of that fact as I transport forward into the future. Instead of risking alcoholism, I have stopped drinking in favor of cannabis products. My state has medical marijuana & there are over 25 unusual companies with licenses from the state to both grow & sell the plant in its varying forms & administration methods. I started out like most by smoking dry-cured cannabis flower buds that you grind & throw into a joint, bowl, or bong. Nowadays I have moved over to cannabis concentrates because I can get higher faster than smoking cannabis flower products. For the longest time I only used butane hash oil, which is a cannabis concentrate made using butane as a solvent. Now that I’m using rosin which is a solventless cannabis concentrate, I’m noticing more medical effects with the presence of monoterpenes that are lost with butane extractions.
