Thanks for sharing, this was quite eye opening. So much of everything in the west seems so damn rushed. It is such a good idea to slow things down and not be so quick to get the act of sex to a climax. Great read.

This is a great read. I haven't commented until now but I've read it three times.

And to solidify my rep as a nerd, here is another article on how chemistry can affect our brains in a relationship!

This is really interesting. I heard they are using mushrooms for PTSD. I've certainly had PTSD from past relationships.

John's Hopkins University has been doing limited testing for PTSD and a few other psychosis treatments for about 2 years now. From the bit I have read they are very effective when combined with a therapist doing a guided trip. Without the right setting and guidance it can be hard to get into the headspace to make it effective. 

I have also found that specifically selecting the right cannabis strains can be useful in the right situations. I will select different ones based on my needs at the time, some help with emotional expression others are better when I need to keep moving. 

General disclosure: I have medical card for my purposes and speak to a professional to help with the choices I make. Please be safe if that is not an option.

That is very interesting. Kevin and I both smoke recreationally and he has his medicinal card. Do you have any particular strains that you would recommend for closeness, intimacy or anything like that? We've both tried edibles but found it to be a much different experience due to the psychoactive characteristics which might actually be more interesting for these purposes.

I have yet to try edibles from the store as I had some rough experiences before I got a card. I also just enjoy the taste of different flowers.

For sativa I have success with Sour diesel, which runs about 23% THC. Good as an uplifter for depression. Helps me be more energetic during the day. It also help me be more open emotionally. Teasing is horribly horribly effective. 

For indicas I prefer the Northern Lights, but can't get it most of the time. This helps for anxiety mostly and it can take edge off if I am getting frustrated (as in a longer lockup period). I don't use these much. 

I don't want to link drugs here obviously, not everyone feels the same about them. But the dispensary I use is in most medical states if you would like links I will email them.
