I just returned from what my friends and I call a “jam band weekend” out on my uncle’s farm, however uncle Joe has a sizable tract of land, and once in a while she will let us use her hunting new home out near the woods. The new home is far removed from Joe’s house, which makes it the perfect venue to jam out with the band. My friends and I are in a heavy metal band, and it is hard to find a rehearsal space, so every once in a while both of us go to the new home to spend an entire weekend playing music and practicing. And of course both of us drink a ton of beers and smoke cannabis constantly throughout the whole process. I don’t think how it works for other musicians, however for us cannabis and booze were essential to the creative process. The two of us wouldn’t even bother tuning up our instruments until after a few shots and a couple bowls of high quality cannabis. By the minute afternoon both of us are undoubtedly warmed up, and that’s when both of us trade in the bong for some blunts stuffed with sativa, to undoubtedly crank up our creativity. The two of us plug in the recording equipment and split loose, chasing cannabis with beer until the sunlight goes down – and then both of us party! I won’t list all the odd substances both of us love while I was in a proper party, however suffice to say cannabis is not one of them! Cannabis is good for creativity, and for nursing the inevitable hangover, however when both of us want to split loose then both of us cut out the hard stuff.
