Good choice. Anytime you can recognize clarity, choose that. It is the canvas within which insight is born.

I've thought about giving it a try, though all I'm using is a vape. If anyone's interested, here's a good store https://vapingdaily.com/. Marijuana, however, is known for many side effects. Aren't you afraid it can affect your memory?

Years ago I had the idea that meditating and practicing presence while stoned might be a cool experience. It was not what I expected. Practicing presence distanced me from the high and gave me space from it in the same way that it creates distance from thoughts. Rather than getting caught up in the sensations and thoughts that the drug produced I was able to observe them, and that space of observation was completely unaffected by the marijuana.

Marijuana may shift our perception and cause us to have an idea or revelation that we might not have had, but it ultimately does not have an impact on our true selves.
