Smoking marijuana turns us all into temporary philosophers. And the best part is, there’s actually science behind those “high-thoughts” that keep you up at night.
Usually, neurons in the brain become temporarily inactive after firing, almost as if they’re taking a quick break. But cannabinoids prevent this from happening in certain areas of the brain, amplifying your imagination and giving your thoughts a runaway-train effect. This is why smoking marijuana can make you temporarily obsessed with an idea, or lead your mind to go off on long, strange tangents.
The late David Foster Wallace perfectly characterized this phenomenon in his highly acclaimed novel, Infinite Jest, in which the protagonist is addicted to weed (or as he calls it, Bob Hope):
“This tendency to involuted abstraction is sometimes called “Marijuana Thinking”; and by the way, the so-called “A motivational Syndrome” consequent to massive Bob Hope–consumption is a misnomer, for it is not that Bob Hope–smokers lose interest in practical functioning, but rather Marijuana-Think themselves into labyrinths of reflexive abstraction that seem to cast doubt on the very possibility of practical functioning, and the mental labor of finding one’s way out consumes all available attention and makes the Bob Hope–smoker look physically torpid and apathetic and motivated sitting there when really he is trying to claw his way out of a labyrinth.”
Knowing yourself, your tolerance, and your limits, is a fundamental part of traversing that labyrinth, as is smoking legitimate, traceable weed. Another key to navigating it safely and pleasurably is procuring for purity when you smoke, making sure you get the best out of the flower with no bad-trip-inducing contaminants.
This is where a brand like Hitoki excels, by paying an almost obsessive amount of attention to the task of keeping smoking clean. Their flagship product, The Trident, eliminates butane combustion from the equation and lights your weed up through the sheer power of concentrated light.
Additionally, the sturdy construction of this real-life alien hookah includes FDA standard interlocks, an integrated water filter, and a removable ceramic loading chamber all working in tandem to provide the cleanest smoking experience available.
Purity is key, a clean labyrinth is a happy labyrinth, one that won’t have you trying to claw your way out.
So if you are in fact, “trying to claw your way out of that labyrinth” but find that you don’t have the mental strength to do it on your own; perhaps finding that ideas are flowing 1,000 miles per hour but putting them into words that make sense when you sober up seems impossible, then all you need is a little push.
That’s where Pilgrim Soul’s Creative Thinking Journal comes in. With over 50+ instructional exercises that allow your creativity to do its job without going wild, this journal is meant to be used when you are high.
Hear us out…if pickles are just salty land cucumbers… does that make a sea cucumber the pickle of the sea? This is one of the many high thoughts that might cross your mind when trying Binoid’s Delta 9 THC Gummies, and boy, do they pack a punch (take it from us).
Binoid’s Delta 9 THC gummies are potent enough to have you wondering about anything from the creation of the universe to why the past tense of “wake and bake” is “woke and toke”. With a one-of-a-kind effect that’ll have you feeling motivated and uplifted, ready to face the day (or night) while letting your body take a break from realizing it’s a body.
Each gummy in the 20-pack is filled with a full-spectrum mix of compounds and terpenes, including 10mg of Delta 9 and 50mg of CBD, giving you a blissful high while also feeling relaxed and giggly. There are four fruity flavors you can pick from: black raspberry, mango madness, and fruit punch. You can also go for the mixed gummies if you “Pokémon, gotta catch ‘em all”.

Their nano-enhanced gummy triangles are unique and pack a serious punch. Each beautifully designed package has three gummy triangles that can be divided into three 10 mg doses, which in our opinion, look and taste great.
Both of the pre-roll options come in a broad variety of strains, but the key distinction is whether or not your pre-rolled joint will be infused with live resin and coated in kief. You can buy infused or ordinary pre-rolls, and they come in 0.5 to 1 mg doses individually or in a lovely 6-pack.

This is why smoking marijuana can make you temporarily obsessed with an idea, or lead your mind to go off on long, strange tangents. Sometimes, the stoned mind goes into a cycle of thought that spirals and spirals, but let’s leave it at that.
More often than not you’ll be thinking up random things about stuff you see or use on an everyday basis with a whole different perspective. Or, you may find the answer to some random mystery you’ve been keeping tabs on social media.
Creative thinking is all about making new connections, and that includes all senses.
