I’m fairly open minded to all sorts of products and supplements for a plethora of health purposes.
When I was still in college, I used to buy kava and ginseng whenever I could get across town to the Asian market where I found them both.
Back then there weren’t many legal intoxicants on the market besides spice and bath salts, both of which were essentially umbrella terms for a constantly changing set of various substances. For the former, it was a large group of synthetic cannabinoids with no pharmacological history or research to understand the short term and long term effects. An old friend of mine got addicted to spice after he moved out of state to live with his dad in his inner city apartment. I heard through a mutual friend that he nearly went insane and attacked his father with a baseball bat before he was subdued by his uncle and father and taken to the hospital to detox before being cuffed and thrown into county jail. Nowadays the synthetic cannabinoids that you see on the market are delta-8 THC, delta-10 THC, and THC-O. These are much safer, especially since delta-8 occurs naturally in some strains of cannabis. Otherwise you could buy CBD or CBG oil for various reasons. When I tried taking pure CBD oil to help with my nerve pain and anxiety, it didn’t help me very much regardless of the dose sizes. I eventually learned that I needed a full spectrum CBD product that had other terpenes and cannabinoids present in it from its original plant form. Once I started buying full spectrum hemp products, I noticed a huge boost in positive effects.
