Default Experiences: Weed /Pot in the rink? Work for you?

Ok so I live in california, weed is legal, it like everywhere now. Allot of skaters I know do vape pens, fast easy buz. I was never into it, never even considered trying it with skating, that's nuts!

Then I found out at least 75% the best skaters in the rink are avid pot smokers! A few are world class! How could this be? So when my new hot skater girlfriend broke out the "Girl Scout Cookies" in a vape pen what was I to say? I tried it.

OMG! It was like my best skate night ever and people noticed so it was not my imagination. You really FEEL the music and so much of rink skating is about learning to RELAX, gentle transfer of weight, etc.

It's like my feet are on autopilot, they know what they are doing, "I" am just along for the ride! I did more than I ever did. I was afraid the weed would make me do things I should not and I would fall, but that did not happen. For me it kinda put fear in a more realistic perspective. So much of skating is about mastering fear or at least keeping it in perspective.

What are your experiences, thoughts?

Skating without weed is a loss indeed.

I'm gonna go with no. For a stretch, I would always go to Fountain Valley with a strong rum and coke in a gatorade bottle. (they let folks bring a drink in on adult night. Though, they'd expect it to be water.) But that is when my joints were aching so bad. I never really got drunk. All the liquor did was take the edge off the pain.

The one time I was really inebriated was when I was getting a cold, took some medicine, and had a Pepsi. That got me looped. I had fun. But I sure did cut corners, pass too close or too fast a lot. My be careful internal voice got small, and my go for it voice got loud. Yeah, I really had fun. But that was just a good wipeout waiting to happen.

As for weed..... My sister has a vape. She forgot how to turn it on. I had her charge it, and I thought I remembered how to turn in on. So I did, took a puff, held it in my mouth, and let it out to make sure I did get a puff. Yep. There was the smoke. Ten minutes later, I felt so GOOD. A few months later, I WANTED a little high. Got the vape, inhaled, held it a couple seconds, and then coughed my *ss off. I felt NOTHING later, and irritated the cr*p out of my throat. I wasn't anxious to try the vape again after that.

I smoked a bit long ago. Got custody of my boys and dropped all of it cold turkey. All my works since then has drug testing so no smoking for me.

I wish they would legalise weed here (Wyoming). Colorado is legal and they make a tonne of money off of it.

I don't know about combining it with skating though. That sort of seems like an accident waiting to happen. But then, I'm open to the idea. If, and when, weed becomes legal in Wyoming, I'll maybe reconsider.

As THC and CBD effect everyone differently this could be a multiple choice poll, no two people have the same effects.(Lyme disease is the same, different reactions with each person)

Why did Roofie(date rape) interject alcohol? He brought a butter knife to a gunfight.

Meaning, being Drunk with alcohol on skates is a danger to others, being under the influence of CBD or THC isn't dangerous and won't harm others.

Default Thanks for all your responses!

Yes, there are a lot of variables indeed. For one thing there are MANY marijuana strains, some would be horrible for skating. Girl Scout Cookies and OG Kush seem to be favorites.

To me though pot on any kind of regular basis is a bad idea, I like being sharp as possible. But I did learn something, and I think it will carry over.

Most skaters are not skating to the rhythm of the music or do so sporadically, I realized that those that are really stand out. Because of the Girl Scout Cookies
experience I try to do it all the time now.

I prefer to not be on anything.

I've seen dangerous skaters on pot, and dangerous skaters from being drunk. Though the ones on pot who were dangerous were actual regular skaters I knew, the ones who were drunk were the one offs at a party when I visited Roller Jam USA. Both are equally a threat as safety goes when one does a poor job of correctly administering a dose and then skating above their capacity.

I dont typically like people who are "high". Got a few friends who self medicate with it(pot) that dose responsibly and correctly, no issues there though. However, the vast majority of people smoking are just trying to get WAY jacked up(high as fvck). Granted, they aren't trying to hurt anyone, but they dont have the same observational ability when high as they do sober, so their capacity for safety while skating hard is not there like it normally would be.

Edit:
The wife is allergic to that ish. She can't be around it at all.

I insist on some inside info, I insist that I-we vicariously follow along.
so, you were asking advice about asking others to be a skating partner for mixed doubles skating at a predominately colored rink, now you have a "Hot Skater Girlfriend" fill us in.

No offense meant.
