Up at 4:30 to drink coffee, pet Blackie and
walk Catherine to the car.
Smoked a joint at 7:30 to brighten up the
day and succeeded in doing that.
9:45 went for my walk around the pond, 32
minutes. Had to talk myself into it but was glad I did. Now headed out to 20
minutes of meditation on the deck. It's already 10:20! Shorts weather
and it feels good.
Cut it short, spooked by John getting in
his car & driving out.

Catherine is in L.A. taking care of her
brother who has just had knee surgery. I spent the day straight until
5:30 or so and finally lit up at about 5:30. Marched through the
morning, bored but determined. Even did the 30 minute walk around the
pond; an effort that even surprised me. Really was in no mood. A bad mood or
more appropriately, a dark mood. Worried that the only time I have joy these
days is when I'm stoned. Not sure that I'm ever really happy when I'm
straight. Too often bummed from the noise of the ego and memories from
the past peppering my consciousness at light speed before I can identify
them as harbingers of regret that cause me to suffer. They come in under the
radar and give me that tinge of pain that doesn't disappear even though I've
rationalized them away as unimportant relics spewed out by the egotistic
mechanism that is the mind.
8:07 PM - Currently at my desk, baked, and
wondering if I can keep a journal when the only time I feel inspired to
write is after a few tokes on a pipe. It leads to writings with run-on
sentences and babbling ramblings that drift off into nothingness and are
incomprehensible when read straight. But...
The hardest thing about writing while
stoned is remembering why you started the sentence ...
Buddhism is a major interest of mine these
days. Not sure what else to call it, perhaps mindfulness would be
better. After all, mindfulness is the bottom line in Buddhism; what's left
after you strip away all the peripheral crap that was added over the
centuries. Mindfulness is the Buddhism Buddha taught, and Einstein.
I've missed writing. It just became a
chore. My writing was the ego me, phony, written with the reader in mind.
April 3, 2009 - Friday
Went to L.A. yesterday and renewed my
Medical Marijuana Referral. No problem and I'm probably one of their easier
patients. I have all the medical documents and prescriptions I need to
support my use of marijuana for migraine headaches.
So I'm legal for a year and I'm allowed to
grow 6 plants to maturity. While I was in LA I picked up 3/8ths of some mid
grade sativa. They're calling it "SnowCap"
or "Green C" not that the names really mean anything. It comes on
very strong but that isn't sustained for much more than an hour. From there it seems to be a medium stone
for a couple of hours. Kind of
sneaks up on you. Slight panicky feeling when it first comes on and it's not
that trippy. Not sure if that's just because I've jumped to fresh stuff.
Suppose I need to give it a week or two before reviewing. :)
5:26 pm - Since I wrote the above, I've
found these reviews. Let's see how I did...
|From HAHA420 - "just picked up a bit of
some Snowcap yesterday. its ABSOLUTELY covered in orange hairs!!! it has a
very lucid smooth smell and will stick to a wall when you press it (ya i
actually tried it) purely because of how crystally it is. Tastes as
delicious as it smells, not harsh at all. and the high of course is best
described as calming."|
|ShiShib says, "So I've been
experimenting with all sorts of strains since I started smoking.|
I found which one best helps me for anxiety (which is basically any indica),
but I have still been looking for something to better aid my ADHD.
Snowcap, my friends, is the strain I recently tried out (and just went
back to get another 8th of). I took some last night to help me finish some
work... and it was by far the most focused, freshened feeling I've had in
For anyone here that is ADHD... or anyone that finds this page looking for
natural marijuana medication what nots... Snowcap (a pure sativa) is
working great for me!
|Ioncurtis says, "I got an 8th of Snow
Cap yesterday from the cannabis club. It's covered in resin like mad. it's
so sticky that i can break it up with my fingers and rub little balls of
hash afterwards. it's pure sativa; a total head high."|

Name: Snow Caps
From: Private Dealer
Looks: Lots of red hairs. Fairly well coated in crystals and well
Smell: Just like Trix cereal.
Taste: Quite fruity, almost like apples and strawberries together.
Buzz Type: Sativa body high, very perky.
Buzz Length: Medium. About an hour.
Overall: Great value. So fluffy that an 1/8 looks like a 1/4. Nice high.
Perfect for wake-n-bake. –H1JACK3R
The last review is most accurate from my
experience. 1 hr buzz length is right on though I'd call that short instead
of medium. Paid $54/8th.

Started the day with enthusiasm for
cleaning the house. Spent the morning puttering around straightening up the
mess. Feeling antsy so took some cold medication that calmed me a bit.
Mostly browsing the net and drinking coffee when not doing the cleaning.
First smoke at around 3:30. Kept it to one
hit which seems reasonable for this variety. More and you find yourself
unable to maintain, slightly panicky and into negative analyses of past
Picked up the mail at 4:30 and received an
eBay incense ash catcher.
Paying a lot of attention to my 8 - 2"
seedlings. California Big Bud from dispensary bag seed.
Volunteered with a local dispensary to
donate a grow for a needy patient. Doubt anything will come from that.
I'm way out of the "Growers" clique that usually would do something like
this. Interesting if they even bother to respond to my email.

A beautiful day. Perfect actually and I
managed to get out and enjoy some of it. Did the pond walk, deck
meditation and then moved the toy hauler over to the deck. Have it lined up
so the back folds down onto the deck. Makes a nice club house with toilet,
water, stove and refrigerator all available.
Now at least the trailer will get some use
instead of sitting by the barn collecting dust.
Smoked a hit around noon and I'm toking up
now at 6 PM.
