Don't know about weed but alcohol is a disinfectant.
With the San Francisco Bay Area, including Silicon Valley, on its third week of self-quarantine, and facing at least another month of being stuck in near-lockdown at home, habits have changed. Internet use has jumped by roughly 40 per cent, with millions working from home, where possible, and using video-conferencing to get …
Between 60% and 70% alcohol content which is 105 to 122.5 proof in the UK 120 to 140 in the US. It has to be at least 60% ABV to destroy the fat coat of the virus and must stay on your hands for around 20 seconds. If it is more than 70% ABV then there is insufficient other content to hold the alcohol and it will evaporate too quickly.
How do I know? Even if I drink that bottle of 14 YO Balvenie matured in Caribbean rum cask in my drinks cabinet in one go I will still have more alcohol on the outside of me :-(
Glenfarclas 105 is a fine Scotch which happens to be 105 proof at 60% alcohol content. Fortunately I still have a couple of bottles left to help should I get a sore throat. Or get thirsty. Actually, I've a couple of other cask strength bottles somewhere.Looks like my 'working' day will become a bit merrier than usual.
Talisker Cask Strength (when they do it) is usually released at around the 60% ABV mark, so that should do the job.
Of course, if you're heathen enough to waste it outside of you instead of inside, you'll get what's coming to you ----->
Edit: Where'd that post from Micheal come from? That wasn't there a moment ago! Never mind, there's obviously another with good taste around these parts :)
Well worth going if you get chance; Skye's lovely, and as I remember the Talisker distillery is in a wonderfully remote spot (as I remember; it's been two decades since I went (gulp; where'd time go?!)
The tour I had was very good, although the highlight came at the end when we'd been herded into the shop: I witnessed an American gentleman purchase a (very, very old) bottle of whiskey.
It had a price tag of £10,000.
Personally, I'm really concerned at what the suicide rate is going to be like, once this is all over and we look back on it.
I know from experience how soul-destroying it is when you're stuck in one place on your own for days on end... and that without the additional pressure of not being able to go to the shops, pub etc.
Yes, social distancing etc is going to save lives of those who would otherwise be vulnerable to such a virus... but how many others will be scarred mentally - or worse, have lost or taken their own lives - due to the isolation. Humans are pack animals.
On the other hand, I predict a jump in births around the November to December time frame. Just as obvious as the increase in recreational chemical use, I know...
Similar events occur 9 months after major snowstorms shut things down for a few days. So this really isn't surprising.
Apparently the consumption of edibles has gone up significantly. In any case, if you're not leaving the house, the only people you'd be passing with are presumably members of your own household, who might otherwise accuse you of extreme bogarting.
Edibles is where its at. Quite apart from sharing joints being unhealthy drawing anything deeply into your llungs really not a good idea at the moment. (Singing appears to be really bad for your health.....)
Recommend gummies rather than cookies. For DiY types you can get your THC in dispensers that are like miniature syringes so you can load your baked goods to appropriate levels (keep "couch lock" to a miniumum -- unless that's what you're into).
