I'm just wondering if the stress, anxiety, and/or boredom that goes along with this situation has changed anyone's usual consumption levels?

I would assume that many of us who are home on lock down are consuming more than if we were leading our normal busy lives.
It would also be safe to assume that some essential workers are stressed to the max which could lead to more consumption.

This coupled with the feeling of helplessness from being stuck on pause with seemingly no end in sight seems like a perfect storm of factors that could lead to over consumption.

Over consumption leads to tolerance which leads to even more consumption...

Just something I'm thinking about.

I know mine is up a little.
I would say I'm using 10% to 20% more per week since I started taking this social distancing thing more seriously around March 15th.

Anyone else in the same boat?

No one is using more because of this pandemic or is posting at 5:30am less likely to get a reply?

Yeah I think I am using a little more too, but I use it 24/7 so kinda hard to tell.

After a week or so of knowing visits to family in md weren't gonna happen for an unknown and possibly very long time I found myself craving what I lost access to. Had maybe a gram left in reserve. Did some basic research and on 3/16 took a nice drive to some legal rec. Got the max-an oz of asst 8ths. This should outlast the virus. I only like to have a little hit here and there as I have become a lightweight. This is a good thing for me. Now the cbd thats a different story. I just love smoking flower.So am I using more-umm -a bit maybe,but for me just having it if/when needed brings a sense of calmness.

I guess I have just had more time on my hands?

Also the way you use it plays a large role in how much you use.
This is very important information to have if you are on a tight budget.
You can try this yourself at home very easily.


---Take a quarter ounce and split in half.

Put up half (one 1/8th) for later.

Record the date and time when you start with the 1st 1/8th.

---Now with the first 1/8th roll & smoke joints only.
---When you have a bunch of roaches break them down and roll them up too.

Record the date and time the 1st 1/8 runs out.


---Break out the second 1/8 that you put up for later from the quarter.

Record the date and time when you start with the 2nd 1/8th.

---This time only use a metal pipe with a cap and always cap the pipe after taking a hit.

Record the date and time the 2nd 1/8 runs out.


You will find that by the end of this exercise that the 1/8th you smoked through the metal pipe with a cap lasted Three to Four Times LONGER than the 1/8th of all joints did.
