Re: Medical Marijuana

Hi folks! This is my MMJ update:. After trying just about everything that was available at the dispensary (my state just recently approved MMJ so we have a ways to go,) I decided to attempt Yawny's posted recipe for CBN. CBD turns me into a couch potato, but doesn't help me sleep and any amount of T...

Re: Medical Marijuana

Peggy, I am so happy you found what works. I love your scientific studies! I am on a journey now and am hopeful that I will have my remedy soon. I'm not sure if my dispensary carries those proportions you mentioned in tinctures but I am going to find out! What is available in Florida has been so dis...

Re: Kava?

I had the same experience with Kava Kava as Yawny. It helped with anxiety. It takes something stronger then that to knock me out. I also have taken Valerian Root (made tea out of the root.) Besides tasting pretty awful it really did relax me but I did not sleep. Just basically laid there couch locke...

Re: Medical Marijuana

Hi all. Here's my update: A few nights ago about 2 hours before bedtime I tried 1 vape of 9lb hammer by itself and although it had a nice relaxing effect it also activated my brain. I'm guessing that was from the 20% saativa. 5 hours later I was not asleep so I had to take Ativan to knock me out. La...

Re: Bioidentical Progesterone...improved my sleep

Thanks Yawny! I've been using this product by Emerita since you had mentioned it and it has been helping me with sleep as well. I have an appointment with my gynecologist next month and I'm going to see if I can switch to a local compounding pharmacy for my HRT. Right now I've been getting Prometriu...

Re: Medical Marijuana

Thank you Peggy. Just getting a response from someone who understands my frustration is a help. Not that I wish it on you or anyone else. Xo

Re: Medical Marijuana

Well..... My experience so far has been a hot mess!! I went to the dispensary and after talking to the main guy and explaining my needs I was steered to 1 Indica- "9 lb hammer" (80% Indica 20% Sativa and 1 Hybrid (60 Indica 40 Sativa. Both were under the label of THC because they are very ...

Re: Medical Marijuana

Thanks Holland.
Same experience for me with both pure CBD and 1:1 combo. Let the experimenting begin.

Re: Medical Marijuana

Thanks Steve. What you wrote makes sense to me. I'll know a lot more when I can actually go inside the dispensary and speak to the one person who seems to be well versed in the subject. You are correct that all they sell right now is processed products. I did notice they do have "Ground flower&...

Re: Medical Marijuana

Thanks for the well wishes! Well, I went to my local dispensary yesterday and found out my Doctor hadn't filled out his order whether it be medical cannabis or low-THC cannabis and also which delivery system. (Hopefully I will have input into at least the delivery system?) There are 4 delivery syste...

Re: Medical Marijuana

Hi to all! I am so excited to share that TODAY I was approved for Medical Marijuana. As some of you may remember I have been waiting since 2015 for my state to pass this. I have read over all the posts and want to thank you for this great information. I also have "The Cannabis Pharmacy" so...

Re: Favorite MM vaporizer

I did some research on vaping oil after trying it on my trip to LA. I was alarmed by the cutting agents they were using such as lighter fluid and pesticides. Granted it was years ago, but even now a number of manufacturers use chemicals such as Propylene glycol which is similar to ethelyne glycol, t...

:D Thanks for the warning! I did well in Geometry class but it was over 40 years ago! I'm definitely not current in the subject. I think I'll skip this one!! 8)

Re: Whacha readin?

Wow Steve, that was a great experience! I've only seen him on documentaries. I use to love diving into a challenging book (dictionary in hand) on most any subject. I belonged to a book club and we had the most wonderful discussions. I find I have a harder time concentrating now since RLS. However, f...
