smoking and the flu!!!!

Discussion in 'Marijuana Consumption Q&A' started by asims86, Dec 22, 2022.

  1. apologize if this has been posted before

    i came down with the flu a week ago and i haven’t smoked in a week - im a daily smoker

    i was really really really sick, hence the no smoking .. im finally on the mend, but kinda scared to smoke because i don’t want to “relapse”.. i still kinda sound like i have emphysema when i cough and am definitely hacking shit up

    kinda looking for advice from other stoners… how long until you got back into the routine? id rather be safe than sorry

    Pinky fingernail of bud is 1/3 of a gram. Close enough.
    Call it 50 milligrams of THC.
    Decarb 240 F for 40 minutes ( bud on cookie sheet in oven )
    Grind to dust
    Mix with just enough butter or cooking oil to make paste.
    Heat paste 220 F for 20 minutes.
    Let cool // chill in fridge.
    Cut into 4 pieces.
    Eat one
    Wait 2 full hours
    If not stoned
    Eat a 2nd piece.
    Wait 2 more hours.
    If not stoned
    Eat the rest.

    Using Coconut oil will cut the wait in half from 2 hours to just 45 minutes.

  6. The good news is your tolerance level to weed is really low after a week or so off

    the bad news if you toke now with all that crap in your lungs will only choke the shit outta you.

    easier is to fry an egg add a little weed to the fry pan first and down it on toast and coffee

    keeping the lungs for other useful work

    good luck

  7. I've never stopped smoking because I was sick. Lol I actually smoke more because I'm home all day instead of working

  8. Well theoretically smoking could hinder your ability to fight off the flu but realistically it's not going to cause it to sicken you again. At worst if you have a sore throat it'll definitely make it a bit worse, I've smoked sick and that's the worst part.along with smoke messing with the sinus cavities as well. I take it a bit easier sick and only smoke until I'm comfortably high but in terms of my experience I haven't noticed a change in duration in which I'm sick.

  9. I realize that younger generations are more careful of their health and respect that outlook. That being said, smoke if you feel like it and if you don’t, then don’t smoke. It really isn’t rocket surgery. Is smoking with the flu good for you? Fuck no. Is smoking without the flu good for you? Fuck no. So maybe if you want to smoke despite the fact that you have the flu you should just try it, see what happens, and then use common sense to decide if you want to try it again. It isn’t like a toke or two is going to lead to immediate death.

  10. The first time I ate weed I felt amazing. It was my 18th birthday and I was on cloud 9. Eat a brownie and enjoy. Being sick sucks. Put some AVB in your chicken soup!!! :). You'll feel better in no time.
