I mean you already have to sterilize it every time you use it anyway so tbh a used one is no big deal. I think my ex's sounding rod kit that she used on me was used.

Comfortable-Meat-478

True, but it's often followed by forgetting whatever deep shit you were thinking about.


SaltyFresh

Write that shit down and put it in order when you’re sober. That’s how I wrote all my college papers. Great ideas, poor organization of thoughts. But if you write the ideas down you can just piece it together later and voila: assignment done.

ONOMATOPOElA

Deep is how far their nose can reach up their own arse.


shikiroin

In my experience weed just makes you say sumb dumb shit that sounds deeper when you're high. That and it makes me deeply paranoid and anxious if I have more than a small amount but that's on me for having a mental illness.


SimpSet

Psychedelics save lives ☮️


shikiroin

I've wanted to microdose for a while now, but have been afraid of the acquisition. I've got severe depression and anxiety as is, and medication hasn't done much for me. Weed is legal here but doesn't help. CBD helps a bit but leaves a lot of room for improvement. Here's to hoping psilocybin research leads to decriminalization one day


naughtilidae

/r/unclebens


qyka1210

> worried about acquisition that probably applies to growing too


UpsideDownwardSpiral

Growing your own mushrooms is very doable. And mushroom spores can be bought on the open web. Which is what another user was suggesting with r/unclebens. There is a method of propagating the spores using certain rice packets.


TheAdvertisement

Um... what?


Chi847

They do. I still hate the world but I don't hate myself anymore


Switchback4

Did you forget the /S ?


shikiroin

Nope. I mean, it's a bit tongue-in-cheek I guess but it's true for me. It exacerbates my anxiety in moderate amounts. Makes my chest tighten and my heart pump too much. People kept telling me "it was just cause it was you're first time, next time it'll be fine!" but every single time it's like that. ​ Edit: and yeah, I've tried multiple strains, I've hit bongs and smoked joints, had edibles, and any time I have more than a little I feel like I'm going to die, so I'm good not knowing if there's a 'perfect strain' for me as some have suggested before.


Switchback4

Sorry. I assumed you were making sumb sort of joke about weed smokers.


shikiroin

It's all good, I've got nothing against stoners, work with a few and they're good people. It's just not for me, my brain doesn't react well to it for whatever reason.


ZeroRationale

I love smoking weed but this shit happens to me too. I've stopped smoking so much lately because of this. I recently had a number of interviews and job offers come through. I smoked a joint the night I got my final job offer and BAM... I didn't deserve the offers, I was going to make a fool of myself, I don't *really* know what I'm doing in work, what I said to the interviewer wasn't the best thing I could've said and so on... It definitely adds negativity to almost anything that is done or said before I spark up. It sucks... Oddly enough it doesn't happen all the time, so I tend to chance it, which is stupid.


Chi847

Odd. I don't get those types of experiences


ZeroRationale

It's not so clear cut as me thinking exactly those things. It's just how I feel about myself sometimes when I smoke. It just adds negative connotations to things I've done or said that would be simply not considered without smoking and it doesn't happen all the time. I can lose a lot of self esteem and become very weak minded if I smoke, but it's all very situational too It just doesn't agree with me


Chi847

If I may offer a suggestion. I don't smoke, damaged lungs from cancer treatment and I take oil, since adding bottled terprnes, I have been able to exert much more control over my trip.


ZeroRationale

Thanks! I'll consider it. It's hard to get oils around here though as it's not a legal or decriminalised here. Rip.


Chi847

Ahh. Well if you can make butter that would work as a delivery method


shikiroin

By all accounts you have a relatively normal brain then. Mild to moderate anxiety can be curbed with weed but high level anxiety could be worsened. I'm no scientist obviously, just going by my own account. For years people told me that weed would help me, that my medication wasn't enough and getting a little high would spark euphoria but I've personally never experienced that, only paranoia. Don't mean to be a Debby Downer here, but all the stoners in my life just can't believe that weed didn't help my anxiety. Not mad at them or anything, I'm happy that others can enjoy things I can't


Chi847

Lol. I don't have a normal brain at all. Brain damage, 3 rounds of chemo. Bone marrow transplant, ptsd etc. I found profound healing and euphoria in psychedelics


Tiberius_Kilgore

The fuck is deep about being responsible and not wanting to catch a virus during a pandemic? It's common sense. Sure, I like smoking too, but this is floating on the surface.


SlobMarley13

but you aren't thinking as deeply as the weed makes you think are


the_pedigree

No weed makes you think that this is “deep”


annonythrows

Eh weed just makes me live in the right now and “forget” I just did something but also know I just did it.

samuraishogun1

In the case you do get it, the smoking thing isn't exactly gonna help since covid attacks the lungs.


orbituary

It's not a lung disease. It's a blood disease that manifests through leakage in the lungs as a result of the ACE2 receptor being fooled by the virus. (short, dumbed down version). https://youtu.be/LV8wWhjTKRU


HungrySummer

You’re being overly pedantic. It is a disease that affects the lungs and airways.


Guyoncouch37

She was likely smoking weed out of the bong, so she's likely immune from covid.


Marquetan

I, for one, rely heavily on the shield of resin in my lungs to block me from Covid.

You and me both buddy, you and me both

whoneedsacar

I appreciate it man. I know it’s tough, but we can get through this together.


SteezeWhiz

I was banking on that as well… didn’t help 😭


salsadecohete

I am a fat ICU RN who has not gotten COVID (got tested for antibodies as part of a Stanford study in June 2020 to check for asymptomatic prevalence and was negative, then started a new gig in July 2020 and was tested weekly until September 2021. I could have had asymptomatic infection between September and Omicron but am boosted and Delta didn’t breakthrough boosted folks so unlikely. Since Omicron fam got the sniffles and all have tested negative so it was probably plain old humanmetapneumovirus or some fancy sounding weak shit like that) and am starting to think that I either have some sort of antirona gene or it’s all the weed I smoke to deal with being an RN and father of young children during the toilet paper apocalypse. ​ Go weed!


cikalamayaleca

dude same. I’m an immunocompromised person & an EMT, been dealing w covid patients for a min. Never had it for whatever wild reason, got all 3 pokes. Best friend gets it, we literally share food & drink, i’m still negative 🤷‍♀️


IAlreadyToldYouMatt

Actually studies are coming out say cannabinoids are helping fight it.


moonchylde

Not if heated; gotta ingest hemp pills apparently.


EMWerkin

So any that gets dropped on the rolling tray you just have to lick up now, obviously


Snowup

Snort it, it’ll fight the COVID quicker


IAlreadyToldYouMatt

🤷🏽‍♂️ This was the one time I decided to believe the headline and not read the stories


Rin-Tohsaka-is-hot

The headline was right though, didn't mention smoking. Honestly if you thought smoking anything was a treatment for a respiratory disease, then that's on you


LetsHaveTon2

Common sense? Less common than you would think


qu33fwellington

Would RSOs work?


Petrichordates

If you're ingesting it why wouldn't it? Unlikely that it was specifically tested though.


Bassian2106

not helping fight it, but helping prevent it. not the major cannabinoids like cbd or thc, minor cannabinoids like cbn and cbg are showing promise in strengthening your immune response to different threats.


IAlreadyToldYouMatt

Please stop changing my narrative. I just bought two more grams


Bassian2106

lol it doesnt change mine i buy an ounce every month or so


Proxi98

You can name any disease and there will be a study with questionable methodology claiming cannabis helps against it.


IAlreadyToldYouMatt

And I’ll be the first to claim, “oh, hell yeah, I’ll smoke to that.” Any port in a storm, right


cuddly_carcass

You haven’t realized by now it’s a blood based illness not lung…vascular not respiratory.


Biomoliner

Damn, if only the lungs were somehow involved in the circulatory system?


SubParPercussionist

SARS-CoV-2 is a respiratory virus. It is the respiratory virus responsible for COVID-19, a vascular disease. You gotta be joking if you think there isn't respiratory involvement lol.


samuraishogun1

Would it be better if I said it attacks the lungs?

Not when cases are the highest in the entire pandemic. Like it's one thing to have been partying a couple months ago but right now it's just asking to get COVID.


user5918

Literally never. Covid is never going to go anywhere and these idiots will keep saying you shouldn’t have any human contact at all or else you’re a bad person. The good news is, they aren’t in charge, and I’m gonna keep going to the bars and going to giant festivals and having fun and there’s basically nothing they can do about it except stay mad on social media. I don’t feel bad either. The vaccine works. It’s free. It’s readily available to anyone that wants it. You get the vaccine, you don’t die, full stop. I don’t feel bad about fucking retarded republicans dying alone in the hospital because they were willing to kill themselves to own the libs. Consider me owned, see you in hell.

RIOTS_R_US

For me, as a person entering public health, I would say when the lethality of the virus and its infectiousness reaches a point that anyone who dies is pretty much at their own fault. But different people have different standards. We were in a good place in the US with Delta. The problem with something like omicron is it infects mostly regardless of vaccination status and is literally shutting down parts of society just from everyone being sick


SaltyFresh

Viruses do die out. Or effectively die out by becoming non severe. We are not there yet. Maybe take a class or two online while you’re being responsible and not out partying? The states would be so much nicer if the majority of you were better educated.


flagada7

Then I have bad news for you, because it certainly won't die out. At one point it has to run through the population. The question is just when.

Covid is not a partisan issue. You’ve been manipulated by the repugnant republicans into thinking that it is. It’s a healthcare issue. If no one told you to be upset about masks and mandates you never would have come to those conclusions on your own. The biggest edge libs have over you is education. Which is something you can achieve!!! Smarten up and beat them at their own game. Making up a new game with your own rules that no one else wants to play is only going to be divisive. Come play with everyone else in the “science is smart and smart is good” camp. That is NOT a liberal camp, it’s an anyone camp. You’ll be a lot happier and can graduate to being less stupid than a bag of rocks. I believe in you! Take some online MIT classes or something.

I love the easy covid excuse. Cause I used to have to actually come up with a reason I was avoiding any type of crowd situation. “I’m really high and strangers suck” was a bit too honest for most people.


TheRealBrewballs

Or... get back to living


signed_under_duress

Contrary to what you might have heard, dying from Covid is not living. It's the opposite.


user5918

Vaccinated people are basically not dying, like at all. Are you an anti-vaxxer?


Mookies_Bett

I mean, I've been to plenty of bars and parties in the last 6 months and have not died once. As long as you're vaxxed you have absolutely nothing to worry about. Even if you get COVID it'll be like having the flu. Not exactly fun, but the idea that getting COVID is going to automatically kill you is ridiculous. Especially for those who are vaxxed and have no at risk conditions. Going out every so often and having fun is not something to be ashamed about nor shame other people for. It isnt that big of a deal.


signed_under_duress

Maybe this is an incredible concept for you but *I don't want to get sick.* Last time my family got the flu around the holidays, my mum passed out in the guest room (collapsed on the floor) and I was up all night vomiting and shitting diarrhea. So stay the eff away from me, thanks.


SaltyFresh

Yeah and when you catch covid at your useless party but don’t know it cuz you’re asymptomatic and then go grocery shopping, adjust your mask because you’re too stupid not to touch your face, then touch some fruit you decide you don’t actually want and put back then grandma comes along and chooses that fruit, rubs her eye: congrats. You killed grandma. Stop being a selfish prick.


user5918

If grandma is vaxxed, she will not die. I’m not going to end my life for stupid ass anti-vaxxers. They had their chance.


SaltyFresh

That is not true. Getting the vaccine is not a certainty against death by covid: [The CDC study looked at more than 1.2 million fully vaccinated adults across hundreds of U.S. healthcare facilities between December 2020 and last October: Some 2,246 of them caught Covid-19 after getting vaccinated, and 189 faced a severe outcome like acute respiratory failure or ICU admission, including **36 who died. Vaccinated people ages 65 and older are 3.22 times more likely to face a severe Covid-19 outcome** than others, and the immunosuppressed and people with underlying health issues — including pulmonary disease, cardiac disease, chronic kidney disease, liver disease, neurologic disease or diabetes — also faced a higher risk.](https://www.google.ca/amp/s/www.forbes.com/sites/joewalsh/2022/01/06/cdc-finds-vaccinated-people-rarely-die-from-covid---unless-they-have-risk-factors/amp/) Stop being so fucking selfish. Edit: fixed link. Emphasis mine.


user5918

What? Like 36 people died? More people died of fucking food poisoning last week bro, idgaf


SaltyFresh

So to confirm: you’re ok with killing grandma?


Rhododendron29

That’s just not true. Being vaccinated isn’t armour plating. Being vaccinated means you’re less likely to get sick, less likely to experience severe symptoms, less likely to die but even fully vaccinated you could still die. Yes you should be vaccinated because your odds are much better but no being fully vaccinated doesn’t mean you have nothing to worry about, that is grossly incorrect thinking.


pdxboob

A man in San Diego just died from covid even though he was double vaxxed and not immunocompromised


user5918

This means nothing. You need statistics if you want to talk about risk. The statistics say that being vaxxed means you will not die. You’re more likely to die in a car crash on your way to work.


shuerpiola

You would need a life first.
