THC and its effects on your game


Recommended Posts

Jumping off @StrokerAce post on a golf digest article made me go back to one I read the other day. Marijuana and its effects on the game. I liked its predecessor alcohol on your game https://www.golfdigest.com/story/how-does-alcohol-affect-your-golf-game-an-investigation

I am not a smoker on or off course these days but still an interesting read. As they wrap up all in moderation right? For me not sure how it would effect me but I would venture to guess I would probably become to laxed. I know my limit with the booze on course but do not have any baseline for THC

No way. 

Last time I indulged on the course, probably 1977, I whiffed three times on a 5-wood shot off the deck, then when I finally made contact, I almost killed a nice lady 100 yards to my right in another fairway.  (Maybe coming over the top "a little")

Was even too stupefied to yell fore.   Never again.

I used to partake quite heavily many years ago but no more.  Of the few times Ive tried it in the last few years, there is no way I could golf as its just too powerful for me.  Im sure if took a toll on my game in the day but no proof.

I think that everyone knows that excessive consumption of CBD oil, and not only, and any other regular products like sugar can create some health problems. I am smoking it for already five years once in two or three months, just to relieve some stress and I don't have any problems with my health. Furthermore, it helped me to get rid of anxiety and depression. I don't have too many friends and I was always feeling depressed, and CBD oil helped me to pass this hard period in my life and understand that I am not as bad as I was thinking.

I can try it sometimes, and I don't have any problems

Oh I know some folks that can the whole round. Usually playing better. I know I am probably not one of those folks. Maybe years ago but not now

I regularly use Marijuana on and off the course. I have never been a big drinker, as I tend to feel sluggish from a few beers. If you can find your sweet spot, I start to enjoy my round a lot better. I may not always play better, which I can only blame on my game. I regularly use a vape pen for ease of use and to limit the smell, since I play a lot as a single. Even as a regular user, I only take 2 hits on the course. I usually take one while warming up to let the initial high feeling settle and one around the corner. I try to stay away from a heavy Indica and usually buy a 100 stavia strain or a stavia forward hybrid. What I find is that it really calms me down and settles the nerve, plus I enjoy the euphoric feeling outside on the course. In short, I suggest giving it a try but first finding your baseline off the course.

I got involved gradually: from time to time I used drugs and thought that I had some special self-control that allows me to keep myself in hand. But I was already addicted and didn't realize it right away. It's all over now, and one of the most exciting things I've discovered is that I can spend time with my niece again. How cool it is to be an uncle and I was able to feel it thanks to https://www.abbeycarefoundation.com/alcohol/alcohol-detox/alcohol-home-detox/  and I advise you if you have a hang-up.

Judging only by playing behind groups that are using it, the game deteriorates as the round progresses....I don't care. Pace of play gradually slows WAY down... I do care. Get the hell off my course with that stuff. Not to mention that at least one of these stumbling fools has to drive them home after the round. Not good.

I believe he is referencing the white claw revolution lol. 

Slow play happens regardless of intoxication. I have never really had an issue with those that smoke on course, I have found the more destructive is from the beverages....

Oh, thanks for clarifying, although I admit I still had to look up what white claw is. Look, I have nothing against anyone enjoying any libation they want. I'm a longtime believer that Ben Franklin was right when he said beer is proof that God loves man and wants him to be happy. But when booze or weed turns you into an ass who doesn't care if you're slowing up the whole course or screwing up others' rounds in other ways, now it's a problem.

I don't think it's necessary to consume directly at the moment of the game itself. I usually used it exclusively after some kind of intense or very stressful game. Especially to help with the stress. Also lately as far as I know a very popular cbd oil canada it also helps to relax and relieve stress and it consists only of natural substances.

I use a vape pen often when I play.  What I've found is that it doesn't seem to cause coordination issues like alcohol.  However, if you've never played high on pot before, you may get paranoid in thinking that "I can't possible play in this condition."  When you think this, it's over.  You will make awful shots.  It's not different than when your confidence is gone for other reasons. Too many swing thoughts will pop up.  Your swing will suffer. 

Once you can get over this and realize that your brain is still perfectly capable to making a good swing and come down, you will be fine.   I haven't haven't kept track of high it effects my score, but anecdotally, I don't think it has an effect on my score.  It makes the round more enjoyable sometimes.
