    I used to smoke it many many years ago. I quit because I started to feel anxiety symptons. I was thinking of trying it again. They say CBD can help with anxiety. And you can grow or buy soon, strains that are high in CBD and low in THC. It is now legal in my state.Thanks. Filix.

    Going through marijuana withdrawal isn’t easy. Withdrawal affects each person differently.

    To be honest, this post has little to nothing to do with the opening post.

    Recreational has been legal in my state (Washington) for a couple years now. I buy it at a store.
    Of course quality, value, variety, and shopping experience are magnitudes superior to the bad old prohibition days.
    I don’t know about marijuana’s efficiency for medical conditions, it SEEMS to help some of my stuff. But mostly I just like to get high on it!

    I know several people who use CBD oils and products for pain and they're very happy with it. They seem to be getting relief from it, that's all I know. I don't use marijuana in any form, but that's just personal preference.

    Use for reducing seizures in some susceptible people appears to be well founded.

    There are studies on this and evidence of efficacy, eg - The case for medical marijuana in epilepsy - Maa - 2014 - Epilepsia - Wiley Online Library

    There is plenty of anecdotal evidence that it provides pain relief, and I have one such case. I grow a small amount (which is legal here), about 3 to 4 plants per year, for pain relief for the wife who suffers from arthritis. This enables her to live free of pain and free of other medicines which have unpleasant side-effects, other pain killers usually play havoc with the digestive system and marijuana does not. I selected seeds for a variety on the criteria of 1) Pain relief instead of high 2) suitable for a hot climate 3) easy to grow. Rather than her smoking it, I convert it into cannabutter by grinding up the buds and mixing with butter and letting it simmer for awhile over a low heat. She can take a measured amount of this late at night and it enables her to have a relaxed pain-free night's rest. With some practice she can judge the dosage so that she gets the pain relief without getting an unwelcome high every morning.

    This must be roughly equivalent to taking CBD oils mentioned about, but these oils are very expensive and my method is very cheap for chronic arthritis pain. The disadvantage is that the dosage is difficult to quantify, and the CBD oils must be easier to administer.

    medical marijuana like many pain relief medications work for some but is not effective for others, it has been seen to help autoimmune diseases though as it has imunosuppressant effects.

    That's what I'm wondering looks like there's about five different accounts at all posting once and then got banned

    My bad - I'll start another thread keeping people up to date.
    Taos was a spammer, emily and cian were the same person (registered twice in less than 10 minutes).

    Is the site busy enough to bother with that?

    Then again did a thread like that get lost in the last archive reformat?

    The opening post didn't really ask a question. Makes it sort of free to wax creative on how to contribute.

    I think we did loose a thread like that regarding bans and blocks. It could be useful as a way of keeping up to date on who your attempting to talk to
