One of my latest discoveries this year thus far in the cannabis world has been concentrates. I didn’t really bother with them in the past because I didn’t feel like spending money on one more thing to be able to use it, and it always seemed like a lot for a little.
After seeing my instagram feed filled with images of these beautiful resin draped joints, I decided to give it a try. I enlisted the help of my friend Chiang to help me document the makings of a resin joint.
Hope you enjoy!

Super Glue is a great strain for for feeling relaxed and focused. I really like how it starts with a head high that slowly melts down into your shoulders for a bit of a deep tissue massage. It’s supposed to be good for pain, but aside from feeling less tension in my neck and shoulders, I didn’t find that it did much for my menstrual cramps.
After some of the relaxation wears off, I found myself really focused on what I was reading and also coming up with really good ideas for some problems I’d had early in the day.
Me earlier that day: Man I think my wig is too obvious, I don’t know how to fix it.
Me stoned: Just cut off some of the lace front! It’s so obvious!
Problem solved. Thanks Super Glue!
This strain also kept me smiling. Literally. My sister said I actually looked crazy because I was smiling so hard, but then asked if I’d share with her, so I guess she wasn’t that concerned.
Beware, there’s also some serious couch lock with this strain. I had to argue with my body to get up and get ready for the day, so this is probably a good flower to smoke when you’re at home and need to study something.
Definitely recommend this strain for focusing, being happy, and relaxed. I purchased this flower at the Telegraph Health Center in Oakland. Check out there weekend deals. I was able to get a eighth of this strain for only $20.
If you’ve tried it comment letting me know what you think!
I felt ugly. I went to the mirror to reassure those feelings, to accepf that I was ugly. But that’s not what happened. I went to the mirror and noticed all the things I loved about my face. My lips, my cheekbones, my complexion, all beautiful.
It’s been a year since I started therapy. There were times throughout the process that I felt it wasn’t working. That changing your mindset wasn’t something that could really fix it. How can you thoughts fix your depression if it’s caused by a chemical imbalance? I thought anti-depressants would keep me from feeling sad. That wasn’t true either. While they did keep me from hitting rock bottom, the kind of rock bottom that keeps you crying for hours with no end in sight, the kind of rock bottom that keeps you from getting out of bed, the kind of rock bottom that makes you feel ok with dying, it didn’t give me the happiness I thought was automatic with drugs. It didn’t make me numb like I was hoping either. Because why feel anything at all?
But this photo proves therapy is working, my anti-depressants, as well as my cannabis, has their purpose, and that happiness isn’t something you just get, it’s something you have to work on. Even though you have moments of sadness, they’re only temporary. People get sad, it’s ok. You’re not weak, you’re not crazy, you’re human.
As I looked in the mirror to assure myself I was ugly, something happened. My initial thoughts of self loathing started shifting with more positive affirmations. And then the final thought came that shut all of them up.
“You’re not ugly, and stop trying to convince yourself otherwise. Nothing good will come of this. Get out of the damn bathroom and work on something productive.”
So I did. I took this picture and kept it moving.
