There's a designer cannabis strain for every taste. @sneezles61 you just need to find one that fits your preference. Any good bud-tender in CO or CA can recommend something for you if you just tell them what you want it for. Sounds crazy but you can literally describe the buzz you want and they'll have something for you.
You are correct though, the amounts of weed we consumed as kids to get a buzz will put you to sleep for a day due to the higher THC content in today's cannabis. Consume responsibly and carefully.
Now we've veered off the gardening theme of the thread...haha
