The Chronicle of the Sensimillian

anarchist's picture

My favorite record store just dedicated an entire section of the shelf to stoner metal, so I'm really getting into that. I've just been listening to just nonstop stoner metal for the last week, and I have a good amount of it, including Bong's entire discography, which is quite hard to find for free. I also got Black Masses by Electric Wizard and Windhand's self-titled LP on vinyl, both of which sound really nice, and feel great whenever I'm in my meditative state. The vocal frequency ranges, delays, and volumes are absolutely perfect, along with the bass-heavy, slow as fuck riffs. It all feels so amazing compared to other genres I've tried, even reggae and dubstep.

Ii would be interesting to experience how this sort of meditation-esque state compares to a cannabinoid high, which the music was designed for. From what I've heard, the effects seem almost identical, but I don't have the same mind alterations. It seems like a cannabinoid high would feel very similar, except it wouldn't require the vast amount of focus it takes to maintain the high I'm familiar with. Maybe my state is somehow linked to the same sensors in the brain. Regardless, I'd still like to try for myself. It would be difficult letting my parents hang out with my pothead friends, so feedback on this idea would be greatly appreciated.

Possibly a related idea, I have been considering forming a doom metal band, since I've been writing and recording some riffs that I'll need a drummer for. And the only drummer I know is someone I get along with very well, and I know he has cannabis connections. So there's something. I also have a friend who used to have a grow room, and apparently does a lot of acid, too. That'll be difficult to do for the same reason as stated before; the potential band members all do drugs, which is pretty difficult to lie about, the way they look and act.

Sorry for being off-topic again! Please forgive me! I just haven't been very interested in sexuality at all, and I've stopped defining myself under an orientation after I realized it would just be celebration of a materialistic, discriminatory label that generalizes an entire person's sexual desires and actions.

I'm not really into the weed

I'm not really into the weed but metal rules! The new Black Sabbath has a lot of slower parts, and the drumming is really good.

I'm a drummer and it's hard playing that type of metal, getting the right sound and timing and knowing what to play is tough. Faster metal is actually easier to play.

Weird...

Weed and metal don't intersect in my brain as a good combo. I'd choose the former over the latter, typically, though.

Try these:

I know the first two are extremely popular in the scene, but there's a reason for that. If you're doing it right, you'll be able to get through all of them without getting the least bit bored.

Nah...

Sounds like old Sabbathy stuff, which I never liked. I was once trapped at a Sabbath concert against my will, and I watched a movie on my phone instead of watching them play live. I don't remember what movie I even watched, but it was the way better choice. ;-)

I'm way more into big guitar riffs, Guns and Roses, etc., if I'm listening to metal at all...

Woah!

I was just reading all the effects of cannabis. Apparently it reduces social anxiety, anhedonia, schizophrenia, alcoholic neurodegeneration, Parkinson's Disease, and cancer.

I need to try this once I get the money. Hopefully I can find some indica (preferably in hash form). It seems to be more what I'm looking for than sativa is.

jeff's picture

Well...

Indica is by far the most prevalent kind out there, so that's a pretty low bar. And, if you plan on attending college, you probably can not even worry about the "hopefully."

I was looking on the Silk Road just now.

Has is pretty expensive, definitely out of my budget. But I could probably get a couple grams of plain indica without anyone (my family) noticing that I lost some money.

Is it really as cheap from a dealer as it is online? Because I found some stuff that was ~$25-30 for a couple g of weed, with free shipping.

Hmm...

Not sure about hash, but from what I've heard, it is is usually $60 for an eighth ounce of marijuana. I've had Canadians and others say that was price high for them, but I've only lived in urban areas.

Rolling Stone recently did an entire cover story on pot, and said with legalization in some states, the growers are undercutting each other, so prices are on a downward slope as quantities increase.

Really? Because that's a little more than 3 grams.

Look at this:

But another guy there said he gets it the same price you do, so I'll just trust that my friend can get me a good deal.

Well, it's a food chain issue...

Most people who sell drugs are subsidizing or discounting their own use, so it often depends how many hops you are away from the dealer.

So he probably can find me a deal, then.

He knows and has mentioned people who grow it themselves, so they most likely don't sell it for ridiculous prices.

Not always true.

There are growers who are pretty cool and will be willing to give you deals, and others that simply won't budge on pricing. There's a ton of risk involved when you're a grower(ten year mandatory jail sentence). That's the law that's in the book for Mass. So, some people will charge more for that reason and others are simply driven by greed. If your buying from a legal source(still not federally legal) you will pay an average of $20/gram.
Depends on the variety you choose. However, there are still better deals out there, but being a trusted, regular customer goes a much longer way.
Don't buy the fake or legal pot. Just don't! I've seen what that shit does to people and it isn't good, at all. I have no idea what they are putting in that shit, nor do I care. Stick with the real shit if you wish to smoke.

anarchist's picture

How do you tell if it's fake?

I don't think anyone I know will give me weird fake stuff, but just in case, how do you tell the difference? Does it look the same or what?

Bosemaster42's picture

No, not at all,

I was talking specifically about products offered by some 'head' shops which claim it's legal smoke, which it may be, but I've heard some rather disturbing stories as to the effects it causes. If you're buying from a known weed source, they are not likely to sell you fake stuff. It's not good business, if you will, to do shit like that. That's not saying there aren't zunzee's out there willing to sell you oregano or something that might look like pot. The one thing that always stands out is the smell of good pot. It should make you go 'Whoa' when you open the bag. If it smells like dirt, it's low-grade and I wouldn't recommend buying it, regardless of how cheap it might be. Unless, of course you like headaches, because that's about all you'll get from smoking dirt-weed. Do your homework, and no one will be able to take advantage of you. Good pot, should be all-flower or nugs. A little chafe is to be expected, as long as, the whole bag isn't such. A few seeds is normal, however, if every bud you break has a lot of seed, it means the grower is either lazy or inexperienced. Sensimilla(means without seed in Spanish) Indica's have a skunky odor to them. Sativa can have many different odor characteristics, but mainly they smell fruity or citrus like. Crosses of Indica/Sativa will have the best of both worlds, but the Indica smell is usually prevalent. PM me and I'll educate you further.
