But what about Boner Hitlers?

I suspect meth users would actually need even more sedation.

Taking too long.
Joint massagers are touting cannabis "science".

hello, is this on?

Well, if true, then it's even more important to legalize the stuff nationally.  As the article says, patients in legal states are likely to be more forthcoming about their cannabis use, which allows more meaningful data to be collected.

Now that it's legal here in Maine, I decided to try edibles after a 20 year break. I'm 48 now, and I wanted to see if it would help with cranky knees, sleeping, and depression.

I started microdosing every evening at around 8PM, with barely 15mg. I got a nice little buzz, and a feeling more akin to sitting in a nice, very comfy leather couch. I found I'm sleeping better, my knees aren't so bad, and the next morning, I'm thinking more clearly. It has been helping with my depression. I get days where it's bad, but not where I'm actually spending time planning out my own suicide.

It's been helpful. Higher doses just make me feel dizzy and spinny, without any added positives. Your mileage may vary.

I don't smoke pot but I have a long history of burning through sedatives and such.  First case was hernia surgery in high school when I woke up in the middle of it.  Dental procedures usually take two, three and occasionally four numbing shots to get me through.  My dentist said I have a very healthy liver.  I had surgery last year and warned them about it.  I don't think they took me too seriously until I started to wake up halfway through.

The proper term is individual dose titration.

Warn them that you are combative when you recover.
And, you are not alone. Individual results may vary and it helps to have anesthetists with more than three days on the job.

Dude, 15mg is not microdosing. Completely wrong term.

That's..a pretty avg medicinal dose for what my wifelet's Dr's have prescribed.

/Glad you found relief. I wish I could but my employer doesn't believe in medical MJ, which sucks since they are one of the biggest health care providers in the state.

I had a top notch team working on me.  Afterwards, I noticed some odd marks on my thigh and thought it was a rash.  I asked the nurse and got an anesthesiologist to look at it.  He immediately said, "Oh, you're the guy who waking up in the middle of the surgery", so obviously they talked up my "superpower" quickly.  He said the marks were probably self-inflicted scratches while I was under.  They were exactly where my fingernails would have been, so case closed.  He the informed me one of his duties is to make sure patients don't scratch their eyes out while they are under.  I thanked him for his vigilance.

There lies the problem. It is highly likely that they receive fed money, which means the pretty much have to not allow it, if they did, they would lose out on that sweet sweet fed money.

Its absolute bullshiat tho, chalk it up to the lobbies. As long as those idiots are around, nothing of progress will ever be made.

btw dont forget to take your pharmaceuticals, its better for you to have uncontrollable oily discharge from the anus with a high probability of death, than to have a hankerin for a twinkiee. smh

I'm glad you're on the upswing. You've broken the inertia, now it's just a matter of pushing a little more every day and you get your momentum working for you.

I heard a song once that said "love is medicine for this life." I believe weed is also medicine for this life.

Sheeeeyiy, the IL state medical society is trying to ban edibles entirely in IL.

"top notch", that is an expression I have not heard in the medical profession for many years. And I was looking for it.
Now, "practicing medicine", that I encounter all of the time.

You're not wrong. I had hoped, since we are a pretty progressive teaching hospital, that it would be different.

unfortunately, money speaks way too loudly, and it doesn't matter how progressive the hospital may be, if the gov says no and they want to stay in business, the no is the answer. I do long for the days it gets rescheduled so that medical research facilities can start to study it and understand how it can work or not work with people and various different medical situations. And I'd like the same freedom to use drinkers enjoy.

I will take a 38DD dose of titration.

15mg is not a small dose of THC.
