Greetings everyone, on Nov 29th I had a benign tumor removed around my chest area. I've seen some conflicting information on when smoking again would be ok. Some sources say 3 days, some say multiple weeks.
I was wondering what experience others have with this.
Every time to go to use it it flashes three times with a white light (yes I’ve made sure it’s screwed fully and I cleaned the connection with a qtip ) so I don’t know what to do
Since it’s a hot topic and I keep getting downvoted explaining this in comments, I feel I should make a thread about this so that people don’t accidentally get themselves into trouble.
For those who don’t know, THCA is the acid form of THC. THCA on it’s own is not psychoactive, but it is a precursor to THC. If you heat THCA, it is broken down directly into THC which is the stuff that gets you high. Normal weed that you buy from a dispensary or dealer contains a large amount of THCA and very small amount (<1%) THC. That’s why you have to smoke/vape weed or cook it into edibles and you can’t just eat nugs to get high.
The 2018 USDA Farm Bill made hemp production legal again in the United States after nearly 50 years of it being lumped in with recreational marijuana and classified as a Schedule 1 drug, via the Controlled Substances Act of 1970. The 2018 Farm Bill was poorly written, and only defined hemp as cannabis containing <0.3% delta-9 THC prior to harvesting the plant. What the writers of this bill failed to understand is that nearly all recreational weed will fall under this rule, because most of the cannabinoid content in weed is present in the form of THCA, not delta-9 THC.
This opened the door for sellers to begin advertising completely normal weed as “THCA hemp” since it technically fell under the definition of hemp as they define (or failed to define) it in the farm bill.
This was allowed to continue for about a year until the USDA wrote an Interim Final Rule in 2019 and then a Final Rule in 2021 that established specific rules for how hemp gets tested in a lab to determine the THC content. This rule added that all hemp samples must be decarboxylated prior to testing, which means that nearly all of the THCA present in the plant will have been converted to THC.
Under this new rule, NO WEED CONTAINING ENOUGH THCA TO GET YOU HIGH QUALIFIES AS HEMP AND WILL BE TREATED AS ILLEGAL in all states and territories that don’t permit the sale of marijuana for recreational/medical use. There is no longer a loophole in the bill and it is possible for you to be arrested or fined for buying, selling, or possessing THCA “hemp” anywhere that marijuana is considered illegal. Businesses advertising THCA “hemp” in places like Texas and Florida either do not realize that the bill has been changed, are lying about their tests, or just don’t care because feds and local police aren’t enforcing the new rule.
TL;DR: THCA “hemp” was briefly federally legal in the US under the USDA 2018 Farm Bill on hemp. The bill has since been adjusted in 2019 and 2021 and now considers hemp with a high amount of THCA to fall under the same scheduling as marijuana.

If looking for the legal altnoids, what websites are good to look at for an illegal state?
my boyfriend and I love to dabble a little marry-jane a few times a week but we are renters who’s landlords live upstairs. We have a few favourite smoke spots and carts, but sometimes you need a little flower. How do people who rent get high without the anxiety of driving/getting caught driving.
Can someone explain to me in simple terms was live resin infused bud is? I haven’t been smoking long and I don’t know what all the terms are yet, and I’m picking this stuff up from my plug soon but honestly have no idea what it even is.
So I would just like to know what I’m inhaling before hand, any sort of explanation would be greatly appreciated
Button on my cart weirdly stopped working
Recently got a new cart and it stopped working. I doubt that it’s out of oil because I haven’t hit it that much. The problem is with the button on the cart. When it worked and you pressed down on the button and a little light would come on while you are pressing it. Now when I press it no light comes on. I’m sure it’s fully charged because I gave it good couple hours of charging yesterday and a couple days ys before as well. and when I plug it in a light does come on. However when I unplug it and try hitting the button then, nothing happens. The button is needed to turn on the cart in the first place so that’s why I need help. One of my first carts so I’m a little lost.
I’ll be smoking a totally new strain, I haven’t had a whiff of THC or CBD during the break, and I’m coming down from an ill-fated weeklong 100mg Zoloft trial.
Any advice? Should I have waited longer?
i was just wondering if it’s a normal thing for the smoke to leak out after i take a hit. i just noticed my cart doing it and it isn’t a lot just a small amount
Hey y'all just picked up my first dry herb vaporizer. It's a yocan falcon. My question is how tightly do you pack the herb into the chamber? I left it kinda loose to try and prevent burning but figured I'd ask the pros!
Hey y’all, I recently suffered a pulmonary embolism in my lung and I’m gonna have to put off inhaling for a good while. I want to manage my pain as well as lift my spirits but also not send me to fucking Neptune. Edibles have always been strong on me, so I’m thinking something with a higher cbd to thc ratio, just not completely void of thc. Any suggestions to try would be mighty appreciated! Thanks guys.
I'm 50/50 so far, 4 jackets in
Used the good ole rubbing alcohol and salt, how do I get rid of the damn taste of rubbing alcohol? It’s been washed out repeatedly after and the smell sticks or something? Everything is cleaned but I think the alcohol gets soaked in to the silicone?? Any help would be nice thanks in advance
Got the oz for $150
Hemp derived drink from Iowa, that's produced in Minnesota then shipped back to Iowa to sell lol.
Went to a dispensary today and we got the peach beboe gummies & pomegranate wyld gummies. Whenever I smoke, I feel paranoid and have anxiety. However the worker told us these can be good for people who get overstimulated. I’ve never taken edibles before and plan to start with half when I take one. Are these good gummies to start with? What other suggestions do you guys have for someone who wants to dabble in edibles? Mainly looking for something that won’t give me anxiety and that won’t make me feel super high, however I know these things affect everyone differently. Thank you!

There are two vents in my apartment. One in the bathroom on ceiling and another vent pretty high up on the wall which is too high to access. I had assumed this vent goes to the next door neighbor apartment.
However sometimes when I take the stairs I notice a weed smell on the staircase which is only on my floor and a floor below. It makes me wonder if the smell is somehow coming from my apartment since it only my floor and a floor below. At the same time there is a whole another apartment between mine and the staircase door.
There are over 100 apartments and 10 floors. I vape weed but technically vaping isn’t allowed either. I’m concerned about where the smell is going thru the vents. I don’t know how it would skip over neighbor apartment and go straight to the staircase. Now I’m concerned where else it’s going.
What can I do to prevent this smell from Traveling thru the vents? Is my vents responsible for staircase smell? Or am I wrong and it could be some else doing it ? Building sent email to everyone
I’m a medical user— a heavy one. Multiple spinal implants, permanent conditions that are typically treated with opioids & terrible pharma + more surgical procedures I plan to bring with me to the physical.
I’ve been disabled and just finished college. I actually got a job offer in STEM fully disclosing my disability. I didn’t expect to get it. Offered today- test Monday. I vape & take edibles daily since 2018. I can stop, but then I need muscle relaxers, pain meds, nausea meds, migraine meds & I’m nonfunctional.
So I use THC & it was advised by some LE friends to bring my medical docs and tell the site it’ll be positive. They’re from different states than the test site though.
I’m freaking out. It’s a hospital (technical/ non patient facing). Legal state (CT), but I’m from another state. Lapse in my med card since it became legal & funds are a lot but I’m renewing it tomorrow since I just got the job offer today and the test is Monday.
What’s the likelihood they’ll deny my being up front with medical docs?
I truly never thought I’d make it to a position that cared to test & also honestly get very ill within 6-7 days of stopping that requires multiple maintenance meds for my chronic conditions + stopping exercise and positive activities.
Edit: I have quick fix on hand. Too many reports of verification failure are worrying me. This is for a laboratory position.
Say you leave a jar of cannabis in a room with a window with the sun shining through. How much cannabinoids an terpenes degrade?
I just bought a half of some absolute fire, but I think it was taken out of cure too early, it's a tad spongey (not still "wet" but not as dry as 99% of weed ive bought) and is a lil hard to roll into my blunts. Does anyone have any ideas.
hi! i recently only started smoking and the cold season is coming in my area, I got caught smoking by my dad because the smell stunk up the whole house but he just asked me to make sure its done outside. Is there any ways to filter the smell? I live in the basement and I have one window available to me that would be at my computer so I was thinking of some kind of air filteration.
