I have also used it off and on (recreationally) for many years.
So I would like to share my thoughts.
I don't smoke it, and I don't recommend smoking it.
You are better off eating it.
Some people make cookies and all sorts of other methods but I have found that is not necessary.
All you have to do is bake it once in the oven for 30 minutes and you will get full potency.
Put in on tin foil on a tray and also tin foil on top of it.
You don't want it to burn, I find 100-120 celcius works, no hotter.
Use an oven thermometer.
Try and get a strain that is high in cbd's.
Eat a little bit in the evening, so that by morning you are not high.
The only down-side is you won't remember your dreams.
But if you stop, your dreams will come back.
And don't worry, it doesn't make you crazy or stupid or lead to harder drugs.
And the fact you are not making cookies, children won't be accidentally eating them.
And there won't be any smell because you are not smoking.
Cheers my friends!
