Speaking of weed; Colorado’s Weed Market Is Coming Down Hard and It’s Making Other States Nervous
Businesses are shuttering or laying off workers as sales have plunged by $700 million.

Turns out that dope might not be so dope after all.

More than one definition of dope was used above Wink https://www.merriam-webster.com/dictionary/dope

Neanderthals and Humans ... So Sad that people lack knowledge of science. Neanderthals are humans. We are Homo Sapiens.
I'm pretty sure that a very likely vast majority of people know this, however for sake of simplicity referring to homo sapiens as simply humans is just easier to read when comparing to our ancient ancestors.
Maybe a majority here at Blue's, but in the general populace? No way.

And most scientists use "humans" for homo sapiens exclusively. The rest are archaic humans. That's a full term, not an adjective and a noun

That's the key for me. I have a very low tolerance as a result of my stroke and not being very much fun anymore. I typically have to split the gummies into 1/8ths. I take one, and as long as I have a pleasant reaction I might take another in a few hours. Haven't had a problem since
Holy cow, eighths? Could you get gummies with lower concentrations? Or are you already getting the "low concentration" versions? Personally, the only recreational drugs I have used are alcohol, caffeine and sugar. I'll admit to a minor temptation to try marijuana, but I figure if I made it this far without, I probably shouldn't. At least not until I could actually get a medicinal gain from it.

When I was a teenager, cannabis was nowhere near as strong as it is today. And I wasn't kidding - my tolerance is very low.

Neanderthals and Humans ... So Sad that people lack knowledge of science. Neanderthals are humans. We are Homo Sapiens. The human branch of the great ape family started 2.5 Million Years ago. There are at least 10 other Human species which evolved before Us, Home Sapien. Homo Neanderthalensis is just one of them. The longest living species Homo Erectus, Eastern Asia, survived for 2 million years. Homo Sapiens evolved 300,000 years ago. All other species of humans besides Homo Sapien are extinct.

Huge Study Reveals How Often Cannabis Triggers Psychotic Episodes.

As someone with pretty severe mental health struggles I can attest that this can happen. I still do gummies. A lot. The benefits far outweigh the potential downsides for me. Of course I am neither young adult or female, so I completely fly in the face of the findings of this study.

It's a dosage issue. I bet most psychosis episodes are when people refrain from using for a while so the tolerance completely resets, then use too high a dose. And that the risks are higher for edibles as they hit harder once they hit and people may take too much thinking "heh, it's not working.".

Perfect recipe for a bad trip, aka "psychosis" as defined in that article.
Quote: "may experience a psychotic episode, which can involve hallucinations, delusions and paranoia."

Those who are prone to his just need to lower potency and dosage. This assessment is also backed up by the same study.
Quote: "High-potency cannabis has also become more common and has been found to double the risk of psychosis in young adults."

So... yeah, too high a dose = bad, duh, news at 10.
