    Medicinal cannabis post-surgery

    Hi all: I had open heart surgery five weeks ago. I was in an excellent place mentally/emotionally prior to surgery because I'd been taking my cannabis tincture daily, and I was as anxiety-free as I've ever felt; I could just feel this expansive space in my mind and feelings that allowed me to...

    How cannabis loosens pain's hook on one's consciousness

    Hey peeps: I'm wondering if anyone cares to discuss how cannabis helps us with the emotional/karmic/spiritual (whatever term you prefer) "therapy" that is (for me) an indispensible part of grappling with pain. Grapple is a good old word: 13th century French meaning a hook for gathering grapes...

    Pain

    Weasel, After reading about other peoples's experiences with Indicas, I'm coming to the conclusion that my suggestions were wrong. If you don't do Indicas well, then your constitution is speaking!! I don't do Sativas well: my constitution doesn't handle them. What you feel when you smoke an...

    Pain

    Not exactly. I'd like to know what the ratios were in various landrace strains before breeders started breeding out the CBD. My Afghan Kush (World of Seeds) is a landrace strain with 20% THC and high CBD (they say 5-10%); that's what I'd like to know about other landrace strains. I'm willing to...

    Pain

    Sue, I've been looking and looking for information about CBD:THC ratios in landraces or cannabis that hasn't had the CBD bred out of it. Do you have any sources for this information? I'd love to learn more.

    Pain

    Yes, the Lift is small. I have two of them, which definitely makes the job go much faster. I started serious investigations last Fall about how to decarb cannabis using the least amount of heat and how to make tincture. I also moved away from combustion, which is the least efficient way to...

    Pain

    Weasel, I decarb buds in my Ardent Lift machine; I mix what I've grown, depending on what strikes me as a good combo. I made one tincture with the sugar leaves and larfy buds of WW, C99, Chemdawg, Iced Grapfruit, Lith. OGKush, and a little Black Domina, Cannatonic and one more. I crumble the...

    Pain

    Hey Weasel I know I'm a year late, but I'ma state it anyway. You gotta learn to put the Indica on in the right blend. That's really what synergy is all about: if you can blend some heavy duty pain killing Indica in with other strains you like, you may find that the effects will start to show in...

    Pain relief

    Hi Old Salt, You really don't need much to make oil if your bud's decarbed. How I make oil: 1. decarb; 2. soak in Everclear 190 in freezer (I let it sit for a couple-3 weeks, with a shake now and then); 3. strain; 4. evaporate PGA in a baking dish covered with fine cheesecloth (to keep out dust...

    Glycemia, Cancer And The Munchies

    Hi Nixie, I see it this way: Cannabis and homo sapiens evolved together (as you know, it has been used for thousands of years), so it is true that both dog and cannabis are humans' best friends. These are reciprocal relationships: humans love their dogs and dogs love their humans; same is true...

    Glycemia, Cancer And The Munchies

    Hi Nixie, So let's imagine that you want to start slowly experimenting with the incorporation of THC into your regime. 1. A fantastic essay about cannabis can be found in Dr. Julie Holland, ed., The Pot Book: A Complete Guide to Cannabis. The final essay in the book is titled "Cannabis: Stealth...

    Glycemia, Cancer And The Munchies

    Nixie, I've thought and written quite a bit about this; hope it doesn't sound absurd to you. Here's what happened to me: when I started growing my own, I fell in love with the plant and our relationship changed on all levels. Now I see her as a goddess and a spirit guide, and world's best...

    Glycemia, Cancer And The Munchies

    I understand the demands of the "practical issues" and also of cannabis paranoia. When I was starting to experiment with my tinctures, I went to work way too high one day, had a full blown panic attack, lay on the floor of my office for an hour dripping cold sweat, and finally managed to get...

    Glycemia, Cancer And The Munchies

    Fascinating discussion. Notsurge, why bypass the high? I see the high as an essential part of cannabis therapy. I mean, one doesn't have to get high every time one uses cannabis medicine, but the high is great for many things like mindfulness exercises, self-reflection, journalling, etc.

    What are the benefit of Cannabinoids

    Not all cannabinoids need to go to the brain, as you indicated: If you put CBD cream on a sore spot, it goes right to work on that spot. Yes, it's pretty amazing the way cannabis and humans were meant for each other. I always say, Dogs and cannabis are humans' best friends. As for big pharma...

    Help with strain selection

    Very happy to help, Greenleaf; we growers can fall deeply in love with our plants! First off, I suggest that you think otherwise about the so-called "negative effects of THC." Just like we have to learn how to dose CBD, we also have to learn how to dose THC if we are taking the medicinal view...

    Help with strain selection

    There are so many factors that go into the end result as far as cannabis goes, that I think it's practically impossible to say that an "indica" will do such and such and a "sativa" will have this or that effect. Her effects on different people can vary so much! If an indica is harvested with...
