I have a rather delicate palate, plus I pretty much always have… This gives me a heightened sense of taste, but also makes me vulnerable to terrible odors.
The senses of taste plus odor are so intimately linked they cannot be separated from one another.
I have consistently been weak when it comes to severe allergies, plus pollen in the air, plus my lungs have consistently been problematic when it comes to smoke of any type. My wife is a big time marijuana smoker though, plus this has been an ongoing setback in our relationship. I believe we managed to bridge the gap when we started purchasing edibles from the local cannabis dispensary. To be clear, with my sense of taste (called a “tasters palate” I have been told) I entirely hate the taste of cannabis edibles. I don’t want to start a whole debate, I suppose some people prefer the taste, but to me the ground up marijuana in some of the edibles tastes something like chewing sod. Other edibles utilize CBD or other cannabis infused oils, but in these cases I get a nasty plastic taste. All of that said, I prefer cannabis edibles a whole lot more than having to deal with second hand smoke. There is also the benefit of enhanced closeness between me and my wife, because we are able to share a plate of space cakes plus laugh with each other sort of like how we did when we were first dating. With all of these wonderful things I get from eating the cannabis edibles, it is completely worth dealing with the gross taste.
