Re-reading The Yage Letters during lunch hour and between putting fucking toys away.

There’s a lot of fluff, flirty, needful, pleading present, as in the ’please write back’ hyperbole exchanged between Burroughs and Ginsberg, but one section stands out substantially. The entry from July 10th, 1953 by Burroughs. It follows the unique Roosevelt inauguration section.

’Yage is space time travel’, followed by one of the most intensely descriptive passages I’ve found in any of WB’s writing. Too much to include, but it’s his experience of a composite city, with every iteration of human, animal, vegetative or mineral life consuming itself in eternal horrific majesty. Ginsberg’s later experience in 1960 teeters at the intersection of a schizoid episode, something that has taken him so far out of himself that he repeatedly questions the sanity of returning to that soul space. Will he be permanently changed for the worse? What if he gives it to a friend and, lacking the necessary ritual skill sets, can’t bring that friend back to Earth?

Harrowing but fun too.

I tried some gummy bear edibles the other day, hadnt really enjoyed doing weed since I was in my teens, but was great , completely off my tree but comfortable, relaxed free thinking. Had a couple tokes on a spliff last night and thought I was going to have a panic attack and totally paranoid. Horrible

Were the gummies 1:1 with cbd? Curious because I use cbd concentrates on their own sublingually at night. About 40mg every other day ish.

What effect does it have? I think I read somewhere once that CBD isn't really psychoactive by itself, and that it's main effect was to modify the THC high, but perhaps that's bollocks.

I'm not sure it only had thc mg on the packaging afaik but may well have had CBD in the mix. they're made locally in loads of different sweet forms (refreshers etc) with dangerously realistic packaging. I have heard about the effects of CBD ratio in cannabis, I also remember reading that eating cannabis means it gets broken down a bit differently somehow changing the effects.

What happens if being really stoned gives you the killer munchies and the only thing to hand is more edibles? Do you just end up infinitely stoned and infinitely fat?

I take it for chronic pain. The relief is tangible in that a pain killer prescription is nowhere near what it once was. Greater range of movement too.

Surprised there isn't a CBD thread. Checked but blanked, long story short is it can reduce psychotic symptoms


Hydroponics and breeding have reduced its presence in a lot of cannabis strains available. The irony. Even the BBC reviewed its ratios with a reporter as a test subject that showed 1:1 ratios even things out. Only partake occasionally, so temporary derangement isn't an issue. CBG is worth looking into too, as are terpenes. The fuller the spectrum of cannabinoids, the greater the entourage effect.

We should probably have a dedicated Rogan thread at some point. Luka thinks he's important and Craner's been on the podcast a few times talking about surfing and picking mushrooms.
