“When you smoke herb, it reveals yourself to you,” is a famous quote of the pothead and marvelous musician Bob Marley. He felt as though marijuana helped tune in with your inner being. I believe cannabis that cannabis does this too and therefore have become a habitual marijuana consumer. Being in tune with ones inner being is important, yet not the reason that I smoke cannabis. The cannabis plant is beautiful, from the leaf to the buds you smoke. I love the ‘highs’ from smoking marijuana, and last but not least, I love how I can function while ‘high’. The summary is that little nuggets of joy have been crucial in making me who I am now, and I am grateful for everything marijuana has brought.
The cannabis plant leaf is most famous about the plant. Second famous would be first to those who are habitual smokers such as I, most famous are the green and purple buds containing the amazing chemical of THC (tetrahyrdocanabinol). When activated with heat THC is capable of getting you high. The glistening crystals on the green buds are called tricots and they hold the majority of the plants THC. There are little hairs on the buds as well, they are a deep amber color. When the ambers are against the lime green color of the plant make it beautiful. The tricoms make the plants glisten and glimmer in the light. There are two types of marijuana strains, Indica and Sativa. Indicas are shorter and typically very bushy compared to the tall, skinny plant of the sativa. The two plants produce two different, yet miraculous highs. Indicas usually give a body high, sativas on the other hand give off more of a bubbly head high. There are crossbreeds of the two and that most common in the weed I buy. I prefer to buy weed with a higher percentage of indicas, mainly because I am a high strung person at times.
I would rather smoke induce because it ‘chills’ me out, but yet I can still function and go to school and work....
