Medicated is another way to say someone is stoned, high, baked, or faded. Medicated is a much more respectful way to address someone suing cannabis and helps to remove stigma surround cannabis consumption. Medical marijuana is used to treat diseases or disorders through the consumption of it. It is exactly the same drug as recreational marijuana, but the purposes for consumption are just different.
There are more than 100 different chemicals called cannabinoids in the marijuana plant. Each has a unique effect on people. The main compounds used in medicine are Delta-9-tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) and cannabidiol (CBD). THC also makes people feel high when they smoke marijuana or consume foods that contain it. A variety of disorders such as loss of appetite, asthma, Crohn’s disease, Alzheimer’s disease, autism, glaucoma, diarrhea, suffering, and MS are treated by medical cannabis.
Baked is another slang term in cannabis culture that means being under the influence of cannabis. This especially refers to the lethargic feeling that occurs when certain strains of cannabis are smoked by individuals. Unlike the term medicated, baked remains a popular way of telling someone you’re high, unlike other slang terms that have fallen out of use.
The expression “wake and bake” is a particularly popular use of the word, which is when someone smokes weed first thing in the morning upon waking up. When you tell someone that you are medicated instead of stoned, it sounds like you are using cannabis for medicinal purposes instead of recreational ones. If a person that is using cannabis to relieve their pain and inflammation in the body, they typically won’t say they are blazed.
Use of Term
I’m feeling pretty medicated right now after I just took that hit of weed. But I use it to help with the pain and inflammation in my joints, and it seems to help fairly well.
