420 Magazine Background

hello all!


New Member
Just wanting to say hello and intro myself to the forum. Just found it a few nights ago. Well to begin with I am nearing 50 on the 24th , been away from smoking weed for most of 25 years , not by choice but by cost and laws and mostly been out of the loop of friends and suppliers I used to have back in the day.I only thought I knew how to grow when I was younger, after reading just some of the threads here I dont know nothing! I wanna learn to grow just for my own use as I suffer from severe pain and depression and anxiety disorder. also looking for something that may help my sex life seriously.I have lots ?s . My wife has a great green thumb and we could keep it very quiet as we tend to be loners. as of right now we are taking care of my 90 yr old mom and the stress is brutal but I would do it all again because of love . ya know what I mean? ok maybe I am getting to personal here so I will just say hello and start reading and asking questions.

Thank you for sharing your story with us. As Light Addict says, FAQs is the place to go for answers. There are also some great links in the

:welcome: I look at it like this; anyone can interact with the ladies, but as we grow and mature we start to be more sensitive to their needs. We learn what they like, what they like to hear, etc. and then we can really reap the benefits! Cannabis is the same way! Anyone can grow a plant, but as time goes on and we gain more experience and learn how to listen to them and fulfill their needs, they respond and repay us tenfold! Ok, enough with the corny analogy's. :goodluck:

Welcome lonetoker. Good intro. Check out our over 50 thread...plenty of old timers here. I empathize with you about your mom. Until recently I was in the same situation...she passed away in March at 102. I didn't realize and understand the stress level until it lifted after her passing. Best wishes and happy growing.

Welcome to :420: Lonetoker, there are plenty of useful resources here as the guys above have stated. It can get overwhelming at times but but all the info you need is out there. From my experience, the best way to get specific answers to the issues you may e having with your grow is to start your own grow journal. Icemud provided you a link on the way to set one up in his comment.

I look forward to seeing you around on site.

Thanks to all for the welcome, I look forward to learning from the gurus!. As of my intro date I found out my mom has stomach cancer and bam!! stress thru the roof, so I may not be able to visit that much but I will be around from time to time when life lets me. this site is huge and a lot to navigate around. I really wanna grow my own but I have to admit a bit scary about trying buy seeds and the postal service, that sorta thing. but anyway thanks again folks I will be around.

Hey Lonetoker....I am so sorry to hear about your recent news....

I will send my best prayers and blessings of health your way!

Here are some links that might be useful...as we know, cannabis helps destroy cancer and hopefully it can also be helpful for your situation.

Here is where you can find a ton of info about its uses in medical applications.
