It gets ruined.  Keep it between 225 and 250 and let it go for about 12 to 18 hours in oil or butter.  Sprinkling it on yer pizza is a waste of time unless you like the taste.  Otherwise nothing to be gained, but the taste.

There is obviously not just one answer but prohibition was not a great success, unless you were Al Capone.  Also, in terms of determining impairment (especially when related to motor vehicle offenses), there is not (yet) a valid test for pot intake, that is possibly why many law enforcement agencies wish to maintain its illegal status.

 If offered, I'll take the smaller buds, crumbs and bud clippings as long as the plant is 'good' because it usually means a big discount on price for weed of identical quality.

 The funny thing is that zingy, anxious, blow-your-brains-out weed can smell and taste much better than full spectrum, 'balanced', quality weed.

Your story about ugly weed reminds me that the most potent weed I bought on a 2 year overland trip from Morocco to the Apartheid Republic cost me US$0.80 for an ounce in a Kampala, Uganda market.  Looked terrible.  When disciplined I smoked a third of a small joint at a time.  Nice buzz.  

Incidentally, the weed was so cheap in part due to the 11:1 black market for Uganda shillings and the then recent invasion of Uganda by Tanzania that pushed Idi Amin out.  The economy was in shambles (again).  

 Unfortunately when we returned to the park headquarters from camping/fly fishing trip up the Nile River to the Kabalega Falls, I celebrated the trip by smoking a whole joint.  It almost killed me.  That night, I climbed out of the tent to urinate, felt a nearby lion's roar reverberate through my chest and then in a daze forgot to zip the mosquito screen closed when I crawled back into bed.  

Back in Kampala, I fell sick with Cerebral Malaria (Plasmodium falciparum), experienced a fever of over 105 degrees F, and that unpleasant sensation of somebody working a jack hammer on my head.  Lost one third of my haemoglobin.  That type of malaria killed two Canadian geologists working in Africa in the 1980s.

Thankfully the hospital run by Irish Catholic nuns had cutting edge medicine and I was on the road to recovery within a couple of days.  Recovery took over 6 weeks.

My girlfriend from Arizona did not fall sick because she was taking a malaria prophylactic.    Being a smart ass with extensive previous experience in the fly-infested Canadian bush, I thought I could avoid malaria by avoiding mosquito bites.     

Anyhooow, this is the story I tell to illustrate that drugs are dangerous and will kill you if not careful.

Its kind of amusing and sad at the same time to see the kids talk about the appearance and the presentation of the weed.  A lot of them won't even consider some stuff because it doesn't pass the visual and smell tests.  Me, if it gets the job done, its just fine with me.

I have to laugh at all this fuss over the presentation, cuz looking back, I think that the most consistently good stuff that I ever had was when I was a student in Florida back in 70 and 71. The Jamaican we had down there was simply amazing.  Clear headed and most trippy.  It would never pass muster to all these kids today.  It was all leafy and reminded me of the same visual consistency of chewing tobacco.  Marley !  Then there was the Thai sticks ...  Ja mon ...

Any old time pot smokers find that much of the 'new weed' is too zingy?   Too intense.  

These days some of us have to make an effort to find mellow weed.  The problem with the really strong weed is the imbalance between the ingredients.  The newer party drug pot has far too much THC and not enough CBD.

To find better balanced weed, in my experience, it helps to avoid the stuff covered in white crystals and favour the stuff that was harvested later than earlier.

One of these days we will have full legalization and better information about we are actually consuming.

"Unfortunately, most marijuana that’s sold to consumers has significantly lower levels of CBD because growers tend to selectively breed out the CBD enzyme to produce more THC. Now that we know so much about the benefits of CBD, you might start seeing plants with higher levels of CBD in the future."

Moderation in all things.  A good balance might help too. If the high THC content strains are resulting in increased psychosis, as studies seem to indicate, then maybe it would be wise to use a strain which is better balanced with other cannabinoids, which appear to moderate the effects of the THC.  We can't learn as much as we need to about this important plant if we don't have the legal means to study it properly.  I'm interested in a strain which will help with chronic pain, anxiety, sleeplessness, and the accompanying depression of FM.  This would be enormously helpful for so many people with so many crippling conditions!  I don't care so much about getting high on it as I do feeling better with it!
