    I have always been told that alcohol and cannabis is not a good mix. It can, according to some sources I have read, can amplify the effects. However I have also read that cannabis can protect from alcohol induced cell damage and maybe even reduce dependence or after effects. I take or have been taking gummies. 10 mg each. I usually take two a day so that's 20 mg total. I do enjoy a beer now and again but now I am thinking I should just stick to the gummies and just drink sofrdrinks, iced tea, coffee, etc. I'm wondering what do you guys think concerning this particular subject? Thanks in advance.

    Back when I used to toke, lots of weed plus lots of booze used to really knock me out! Small to moderate amounts of booze & lots of weed worked well though.

    Booze and cannabis over time just starts making me dizzy. Around the 4th beer toking doobies Ill just want to stop drinking cause its not actually happiness buzz ..

    Edibles and booze. the edibles cancel out the booze some so the idea to drink more isnt always a happy one the next day..

    yeah, this. 3-4 beers followed by a small bowl makes for a great pull-me-into-the-couch buzz. 12 beers followed by bong hits is why i puked behind waffle house that one time.

    From the sources I have read there has been very little research done on the effects of cannabis and alcohol combinations. The cannabis (as well as cbd) can protect one from cell damage caused by drinking. The combination may amplify effects of both. My personal choice is to skip the booze and just take the cannabis.

    Weed before beer, in the clear.
    Beer then grass, on yer ass.

    That's clever. Did you just make that up? Makes sense I suppose.

    The Freak Brothers had it right...drinking beer and smoking weed is like pissing into the wind.

    I'm still curious about how this cannabis tea/coffee works. Can you show me where you learned it from?

    No i never made it up lol. But I've used it ever since I've heard it. But you have to say with certain characterisations you can't just say it, it needs to be laughed at. That's why I only selectively use it, when the mood is right. When it will be funny. :p

    If I'm stoned I try to limit myself to one drink, maybe two if it's Friday or Saturday. Getting drunk and stoned at once can make you really goofy and sloppy.

    That's a good point. I suppose one could have a beer on the days they are not going to consume any cannabis....oh who are we kidding? I made a decision and I need to stick with it. Regarding the tea or coffee there are such products. One simple recipe just has you boil ground buds. I do know they make infused coffee but I am uncertain on how they manufacture it. I suppose it would be no different then our favorite "special" brownies, cookies, etc.

    One of things I did daily afterwork, was get drunk and then high. Use to just get high and that would be it, if alcohol was around great.
    But I got into such a habbit, that these days, I drink until I am buzzed/heavily buzzed then I smoke heavy. And just enjoy the rest of that day/night.
    If I smoked before drinking, I wont drink hard, and more or less be under just one substance.

    If I dont drink, I dont smoke so heavy, unless I am in a environment that will allow me.
    Now when it comes to edibles, dont care if I am drunk or sober, i'll enjoy them.

    Basically what I am saying, is I prefer both the effects. But because alcohol takes time, I wait.
    Other reasons why I do this then just for enjoying both effects.

    Eitherway, when I new to all this, cigs was the one that really tripped me up. Drunk, and high, then new to nicotine. Yeah....that use to fuck me. Now it is whatever. I handle all three at the same time like a boss. lol

    Alcohol destroys your impulse control, causing many to keep drinking when, if they were sober, they would tell themselves to stop. Smoking pot does nothing to stop that, unless it makes you pass out. The longer you combine the two, the more often you are tempted to not stop drinking or smoking, until you throw up, pass out, or whatever. Both dehydrate you, while alcohol makes it harder to get rid of your body heat for about 3 days afterwards, making it especially hazardous to drink and work in the sun. Destroying your impulse control, smoking and drinking combined make it easier to be seriously stupid, and do things like drive.

    Don't do it, a beer or two might just get you in the mood, but don't go there.

    Yikes.

    I would've partied like a thousand times less if I'd followed that advice.

    Me too. That's why I don't drink anymore, not to mention, mother nature forbid me and, when she says no that explicitly, you are an idiot not to pay attention. She only demands the minimum from me, that I follow my Rainbow Family who often shun alcohol as a violent drug, and that I never wear leather anywhere on my body, except my feet, because I am a shaman now, and must show respect for all life. My brand new leather belt, literally fell apart on me. I tell people, you know when God or nature is definitely talking to you, and its time to pay more attention.

    But, when mother nature speaks plain English, she means business.

    You are only young once, while stupidity is for life. :)

    So, you're saying that you're still stupid?

    Or are you saying that you've never been stupid?

    We're all both flaming geniuses and drooling idiots, and me, myself, and I wouldn't have it any other way!
