I was pretty much a 24/7/365 user from about 16 to about 60ish. Im 67 now.
For me I always preferred sativas, for energy and motivation. Indica is good for sleep, pain, and appetitie stimulation. I also found that tolerance would develop with indica quite rapidly. (to the point where friends would trade me higher value indica for my low strength sativa because they had developed tolerance too!)
I still microdose, and have found the gummies to be a nice alternative, to smoking, if you have the time for them. I need my wits about me at work so I only imbibe after work.
Totally agree with Smart Aleq about seeds etc.
Im at a coastal area of santa barbara where growing seeds makes more sense than buds, heavy fogs often all summer. Then dew at harvest time. Anyways, this summer I grew a baggy full of a mixed hybrid, just to test my long dormant skills. Still had my share of troubles, snails, rats, evil worms.
A bit off topic but there is a fair bit of discussion on rescuing the landraces…people taking both sides quite seriously. The new strains, IMHO are very human dependant to raise, the buds are so dense that mold issues or bug problems require major intervention. A plant which matures in 60 days under intense artificial lights, 25% THC etc…Its become a money race to the bottom.
.Anyways, the landrace folks believe that the DNA of say a Durban Poison, being as Kayaker described, lanky and low weight buds, or ultra long grow time, also carries the ability to with stand molds and radical weather changes. Also may carry medical benefits which became lost when higher THC was selected for.
Many of the older strains were abandoned so farmers could make more money with a compact dense plant.
Anyways,davidm heres hoping it works out for you.
