How can a high positively influence the performance of a jazz musician? The effect cited most often as an answer is the altered sense of time during a high. Dr. James Munch, pharmacologist and associate of drug czar and infamous marijuana prohibitionist Harry J. Anslinger during the 30s and 40s, produced many ridiculous claims about the alleged horrible effects of marijuana.
Spice, Blaze, Sense, Yucatan Fire… the names vary, but their legal status is the same. These exotic names are all for substances that are legal highs. Or should we say that are still legal highs?!
Without doubt the history of early jazz and the use of marijuana are intimately intertwined.

Cannabis is infamous for causing ravenous hunger.

Many EU countries have now approved Sativex, although its indications in Germany are very restricted. It is a similar story for Dronabinol (Marinol), with health insurance companies generally refusing to reimburse the cost for this THC-Pharm active substance.

Why does cannabis make my eyes go red ? This might be one of the most common questions an average cannabis consumer could ask themselves during their first encounters with the substance.
The most important decision when buying cannabis seeds is your choice of variety. Book lovers could compare it to the process of choosing a book, which is influenced by the type of reading you are looking for, on the references you might have obtained on a certain author, on the genre you like most, and naturally on your level of reading ability. Ignoring the differences between books and cannabis seeds, when choosing cannabis varieties, more or less the same thing occurs.

Just as with other central European countries, Germany has a long history of cannabis use; today, cannabis is widely used and readily available in most cities, although its cultivation, sale and use remain illegal.
When we look at the various cannabinoids and their boiling points, we can certainly make some rough predictions about the systematic influences of a vaporizer on the character of a high. Temperatures higher than 185 ºC (365 ºF) will for instance produce more CBN, which is known to produce a more sedative, confusing effect. A vaporizer high will always strongly depend not only on a certain strain and its cannabinoid and terpene profile, but also on the exact temperature at which it is used. Precision vaporizers like the Volcano in the hands of skilled user will help us to answer many questions and to actually come up with new questions about how a vaporizer can affect a high. This sounds like a futile enterprise for nerdy high aficionados. But to answer these questions will help millions of users to use the potential of marijuana in a more meaningful and inspiring way. Many people use the marijuana high to better remember long gone events, to work creatively, to find new patterns in music or art, to better appreciate nature, to get in touch with their feelings and have a better introspective access to themselves, to enhance their empathic understanding of others, to make love, to generate great and live changing insights and to personally grow. Many of those users are on a voyage, exploring a new world, and the use of marijuana can be crucially important for their lives – and the lives of everybody around them. They will extremely profit from a progress in understanding how the various cannabinoids, terpenes and flavonoids affect a high.
