I Just Vaped Weed, And This Is Crazy…

So it turns out I have insomnia, and like a large number of other people I’ve found that medical marijuana is very good for taking care of my symptoms. Out like a light in 15 just about every time, if I hit the vape 3 or 4 times, rather than the two tokes I take at various times during the day.

Tonight I was pretty tired, and getting ready to go to bed, but when I took my nightly tokes, I had forgotten that I had loaded it up with Sour Diesel rather than one of my usual indicas. Sour Diesel is my go-to strain for mental stimulation during the day, and I thought I’d be writing tonight, but Felicity went to bed early and then I figured I’d join her after reading a few more articles on the web. As usual, next thing I knew it was three hours later, and that’s when I thought it was time to sleep.

Indicas reliably relax me, but Sour Diesel woke me up, so the next thing I knew I was looking for a keyboard, because I was way too wired to sleep. Luckily, the website’s back up (we had a little technical problem yesterday), so I could write about all this and remind people not to mix up their strains!


Old Hippie is a father of two boys and thankfully living in California where all this kind of thing is legal. He started smoking marijuana in 1967 in high school, experimented with mind-expanding drugs of all kinds, and then straightened out 15 or so years later to become an airplane pilot. After being diagnosed with depression in 2000, he lost his job and most of the following decade to prescription medications (such as antidepressants) which sapped his energy and will. Finally, a chance conversation with a friend led to a doctor’s recommendation for medical marijuana (MMJ). This changed his entire life, health, and outlook for the better. BeyondChronic.com is his continuing story. It’s also his way to provide experienced advice on using medical marijuana effectively and responsibly, as well as advocacy, activism, and support for others. Old Hippie teaches about safe use of cannabis edibles, Canna Caps, vaporizers, dosing, and even microdosing.
