Let me introduce myself! 🌿

5 months ago

Hello there fellow cannabis enthusiasts!

Some of you might already know me as @xtetrahedron from Steemit. I have been an active writer over there for close to 2 years now. Lately, with all the drama over on Steem I have been looking into alternative platforms to write my content on.

Like always when I find new fascinating platforms I like to test them out myself and get my feet wet, so this is me saying hello...

My name is Kim André. I was born in 89 close to Oslo, Norway.
I'm a music producer, label manager, event producer, environmentalist, psychonaut, cannabis enthusiast and in general a long time believer in blockchain technology.

I have been using cannabis medically, as well as recreationally for around 15 years now.

I started using it more often around the age of 16-17 when I discovered that it would make me almost migraine free. At the time it was a serious problem I had been struggling with for years. I had tried several different types of medication prescribed by my doctor with nothing really working at all.

For several of these 15 year's, I have been growing a variety of different cannabis strains. I have completed several grows both indoors & outside. (yes it's possible to grow cannabis successfully outside even here in Norway.)

I mostly have experience growing inside in grow tents though. I have been through a few different types of them, both from the producers 'Homebox' and 'Secret jardin'. My prefered growing medium is coco coir, and I only use organic nutrients.

How did I end up in the crypto space?

I got involved in the crypto space back in 2011 when I first read the Bitcoin whitepaper and acquired some Bitcoins. I used to run a GPU Bitcoin mining rig at home back in 2012-2013 when it was still profitable for home mining. Ever since then I have been a true believer in the disruptive powers of these decentralized technologies! Projects that I support and have an interest in today include Bitcoin, Litecoin, Ethereum, EOS, Steem and more.

Some other interesting facts about me:

I'm the label manager of a Norwegian psychedelic record label called Alfheimr Records.
Throughout the years I have co-created several underground psychedelic forest gatherings in Norway, as well as a 5-day festival in 2016.

With our label, we aim to promote all types of psychedelic electronic music.

I also produce electronic music and perform as a DJ myself!

If that is true I hope this post will help inspire other people of this platform to write good introduction posts...😅

Thanks for the very warm welcome @arsenal49 🤗
I gave you a follow, so I will surely see you around!

Hello Kim, welcome to smoke.io! I've listened to some of your music and I like it, puts me in the perfect work mood :) If you plan to move south to latin Europe for music events, let me know!

·

Hey @dharko, thank you for the welcome. If you have connections to music events in Latin Europe then know that I am on the move a lot and love to travel. I happily play gigs all around the world, and I am very open for bookings 😎
I am happy you enjoy my music 😄
I gave you a follow, see you around mate!

Welcome to smoke !

·

Thanks @mjgeeks, I think I will fit right in here 😎

Welcome!! I have been liking this platform a lot more then steem!!

·

Steem seems pretty broken these days compared to when I joined a couple of years ago. There's almost no engagement happening on my posts there anymore. Here the comment fields seem to thrive in comparison! 🤯

Oh and thanks for the welcome @closetcanada 😁

Nice! many new people comming to this great platform! all amazing people here, its a huge news!

see you!

·

You guys seem to have a good community spirit here!
See you around alexisbusso 🙂

AWESOME introduction post!
Welcome to SMOKE!

Lately, with all the drama over on Steem I have been looking into alternative platforms to write my content on.

Hear, hear!

Quick Q for you... what is a psychonaut???

·

Hey there @goldendawne, thanks a lot for the welcome! 😄

A psychonaut literally means someone that explores their own mind with psychedelic substances, meditation, sensory deprivation tanks or stuff along those lines.

I am a big proponent of the use of psychedelic mushrooms & dmt (The active ingredient in Ayahuasca brews). 🙃

·
·

Oh how cool! I've never heard of this before- very interesting!

Welcome to the platform, Steemit will always be my first love into the blockchain social media, but I found a new home here, now steemit is like going and visiting grandma. a great place to be, but this is home.

·

Thanks for the welcome @tecnosgirl. So far I can tell why you have started defining this place as your home. It seems no one is interested in engaging with each other on Steemit anymore, at least that is my personal experience. Hopefully, better frontends and dapps will solve this in the long run for Steem. I have 1300 followers on Steem, and just a year back I often had ~50 comments on my more popular posts. Now I am lucky if I get one or two real comments...

·
·

I am reading stuff there occasionally and posting other content that is not cannabis related on steemit, but I don't really post much there since HF20, I know the issues have been resolved but the RC issues was like a slap in the face tbh to me. I have worked hard over 18 months to promote steemit, I have all kind of swag I had made up that I give away for free on the site and had something special in honor of the hf for a giveaway then couldn't post it for 2 days. I had more comments how I should have posted a broken mug for a prize since the HF broke steemit. I hope it recovers but I think it did serious damage and now the layoffs. I am on the fence if I should keep any funds over there or if I should power down and convert everything into smoke.

·
·
·

I totally understand your frustration, I have started exploring other options for my online content then Steem after the HF20 problems myself. Just the last few weeks I have made myself accounts and tested the waters on Trybe.one (EOS based social media platform - Seems pretty dead), Whaleshares (The community seems a bit more alive then on Steem, but not by much), and now I am here on Smoke. Smoke seems to have way better user engagement than the other platforms I have tried recently!

·

The HF made me search out other platforms and I am glad it did I have been here for about 2 months now and I am very passionate about cannabis so being able to freely write about it some where and it acceptable I am totally digging it as Cannabis is a huge part of my day and my life.

Maybe because we're all blazed? 😂

I ended up sharing my DIY guide to cannabis-infused gel capsules first. Some homemade cannabis-infused snickers will be showing up in your feed very soon though! 😅

Smoke on!

·

Thanks for the welcome @cheeba 😎

This is a wonderful introduction.

·

Thank you @hiddencash! 🙂

Awesome introduction. Glad to have a fellow psychonaut here. Had a chat with someone from Norway the other day, and was amazed that you had nice psy scene up there.
Think you will fit in here quite nicely.

·

Thanks for the welcome @psyceratopsb. Was it maybe me over in my other post? The DIY guide to cannabis-infused gel capsules? Either way, I have been a part of creating underground psychedelic gatherings in the forests of Oslo since around 2013. I think we have a pretty unique psy scene over here 😃

·
·

Yeah, stoney me. Sorry bout that. I wanted to go to a party in snow, since always...If me and my wife wanted to some to some party you organize, would you welcome us with fun stimulus?
We wanna go to Norway and it is on our bucket list, just don't have some specific reason, this way we would have.
Do you post your parties on goabase.net?

·
·
·

We had our festival in 2016 on goabase, but not our smaller events as they are "illegal". We basically don't ask permissions to use the areas of the Oslo forest that we use for our events as it's not possible to get. Normally we have closed events on facebook through our closed group, in the events we wait until the day the party is taking place before we announce the exact location. Around 2014-2015 there were problems over here with cops shutting down forest parties, so most of the event producers all decided to move more underground with how we announce our events; and it seems to have worked well. Not a single party has been shut down in a couple of years at least. If you let me know in a while ahead when you are planning to come visit Norway, then I could at least let you know what kinda psychedelic events would be happening around those times... I have to mention that there are only really outside events taking place in the warm half of the year though, so no snow forest parties 😅

Great, will be sure to give you heads up when we plan on coming. Oslo it is then!

Awesome introduction :)! Welcome

Thank you @mve! ☺
