If one requires a mind-altering experience from time to time, as many seek out, weed is definitely a better way to go. It has a significantly lesser toll on your body, and if used correctly, a neutral or even a positive effect. Vaporizing herb, ingesting low-carb edibles, or taking drops of oil tincture are the healthiest ways to experience the wonders of THC. Assuming one has their shit together, moderate weed consumption in combination with a productive, positive life can strike the perfect balance between work and play.

Word. I've been transitioning out of my party stage (going out 4 nights a week a couple years ago) and also transitioning from beers to gin/vodka. I used to stay to away from hard liquor but as you've said clear spirits are the healthiest alcohol and unfortunately while it's easy to keep track of how many beers you've had they fall on the far side of the "unhealthy alcohol" spectrum.

I've also heard that tincture is the healthiest way to consume THC. I like smoking a little flower at the end of the day to unwind or play some music but nowadays if you're not getting it from a legitimate source you have to worry about all sorts of chemicals and pesticides in it. Apparently a lot of the weed America smokes in non-legal states is grown by cartels in national parks and is doused with chemicals and pesticides. After looking into that I had to draw the line.

I don't drink much beer, but when I do I look for pilsners as they tend to have less alcohol. That and the hoppier, the more detrimental effect of increasing phytoestrogens. They even have a name for the condition - brewer's droop.

Good points, especially this

I can't support use of marijuana, although I don't feel that strongly about it. I do know that the efficiency in isolating it or the % THC in any manner of delivered mediums now is very high compared to even the recent past. I personally would stay away.

Get your passport ready!
