Are You A Medical User ?
Given how many people are taking to growing their own, I wondered what their prime motives are. Me ? It's primarily health and wellbeing, though I do dabble 😁
How about you ?
Time to grow old disgracefully.
@toploader I am a medical grower. Grow for Pain relief, Anxiety and Insomnia plus i like to smoke weed
but seriously ive been med free for over a year now
Sativa to change the things I can, Indica to accept the things I can’t.
I gmo (grow my own ) for a lot of reasons tbh
i am a medical user? I think there are medicinal benefits even through recreational use so in that sense it’s hard to distinguish between the two..
I do not (knowingly at least) have a serious pain condition due to severe illness which needs relief but I do have several lower level issues which I find cannabis helps.
As for things such as stress/ sleep/ diet I think it’s important to realise the cause of your stressor and try treat that, not necessarily with cannabis, but treat the cause not the symptom where possible.
Due to prohibition we are light years behind where we should be with regard to medical cannabis research/ breeding for effective medicine efficiency.. but at least we’re getting onto the right roads (USA/ Canada/ Uraguay/ Mexico / Israel etc..) with the world finally waking up to the future potential benefits of cannabis.
bit of a ramble, happy medicating
And recreating with your percy
Time to pop some more beans 😗
Tbh most of what I grow gets turned to oil and given to those that have come to appreciate it's medical effects.
Time to grow old disgracefully.
I've been taking CBD oil for about 12 months for my arthritis , so that's my motivation for starting to grow my own CBD and CBG strains also my wife as MS and as a lot of pain . I'm only growing to make RSO and CBD / CBG oil not interested in smoking it .
Genesis 1:29-God said, “Look, I have given you all the plants that have grain for seeds and all the trees whose fruits have seeds in them. They will be food for you.
I am medical and decided to grow my own mainly for the purity, organic, etc. I could buy it but then you don't really know what's in it, chemicals, pesticides, fungicides, etc are still being used. Just because they are government approved doesn't mean squat to me. My main use is for tremors, akin to Parkinson's which gives me high anxiety and that makes the tremors worse, viscous circle. I also like the rec side as well. 😎
We just smiled n waved sittn there on that sack o seeds
@hart that purity question is a big deal for me too. I could never have bought from an unknown source and hence had to grow for myself. Also another reason for me changing to soil growing, well that and I've come to the conclusion that coco and me just don't get along.

Big yes for me , opiates done a number on me , the antidepressants were to calm the side effects, opium is shit for neurological pain fact , my bowels are dodgy as of 20 year of naproxen ,antinflamitories get purged not me doing that my body lol , so im left with rather a impressive script , but sounds daft but I don't take them , substituted 80% for my own home grown , edibles and flower , it is just a plus I call it my hobbie , farmer with no farm but I got 2 tents 😆 and street weed , gives you headaches , and all that gives weed a bad name
50/50 here with an added keep my brain on the slow so I can concentrate...started as purely recreational but this 53 year old body needs help to keep up with the 25 year old mind now so as Pharma has/will never happen unless in case of great need, weed is what I need 🙂
I have had some real shit in the last 10 years and if it wasnt for the Canna, I dont think I would be here...so on that basis, its worth its weight in RSO 🙂
Growing stops me spending ridiculous amounts of money on buying shit, early harvested, un cured weed...
Mostly medical for me but pay attention to mostly because I actually LIKE taking my meds now and that’s the recreational side, I finally like my medicine! Neurological pain from years of back abuse had me on opiates, muscle relaxers, and nsaid anti inflammatories daily. The government took the tramadol away(opiate reform), good riddance, it messed up sleep patterns if I took it at the wrong time. Developed an allergy to the muscle relaxers, and naproxen chewed up my stomach. Did some research in legal states and now the only med I am using is cannabis. It’s at least as good as the other crap with less side effects. The more I learn about this stuff and it’s various preparations and application the better it works.
The wife says she is recreational but if I was to rate it she’s at least 50/50. She enjoys cannabis to relax and unwind, a medical treatment in my opinion 😉
Random acts of kindness make the world a better place
I started out over 50 yrs. ago, using for recreational purposes as I got older I quit as tried to stay away from sections of towns where they became known as drug alleys and doesn't go well with employment. Couple years back my Dr. recommended when state legalized medical use, he also told me to learn to grow my own and not to tell anyone as he said they are robbing people for the price of a license and the cost of product in this way he could ween me off pain meds.
I'm not smoking any more..... but I ain't smokin' any less
The med vs. rec line.. classic. I like to think all rec is fundamentally med, but not all med is rec.
For myself, I've had stomach problems (IBS-A they call it...) since about 2011 to which cannabis has been about the only thing that has provided me any relief. I've had a legal medical authorization since 2014 but, used cannabis as such well before that. I've tried a shit ton of pharma stuff, therapy, the whole nine yards and cannabis is about the only thing that seems to be worthwhile to use. When I use it, I feel like I use it to bring myself back to 'baseline' where I can get on with shit normally like the rest of us. I rarely get traditionally 'high' or 'stoned' in the sense of pigging out and playing video games or whatever, not that there's anything wrong with that lol. But yeah, I treat it almost like a supplement more than a solution as it doesn't 'cure' me per se, but rather allow me to be able to do the things that I need to do in order to work on getting healthy, i.e., eat proper food, exercise, etc.
But it's been said to have preventative effects against severe brain shit, as well as regenerate and strengthen bones, and we all know that stress and the resulting inflammation are a major contributor to basically all disease, so something that can reduce that root cause, regardless of the user's intent, is a good thing.
I feel like it's like Integrated Pest Management for the body, but instead of Steinernema feltiae, Orius insidiosus, and Amblyseus swirskii in the garden, we have Cannabidiol, Tetrahydrocannabinol, Cannabigerol, et al., and the army of terpenes and flavenoids in our veins.

I am both. I have several health conditions that it helps me with. Before it was fully legal here I had my medical license for it, which my shrink signed off on being ok. (he said he did not really support it but would not stand in my way because it was not likely to do any harm)
On the other side, I have enjoyed it socially for 40 years. My god, did I just say 40 fucking years?? I'm old as dirt.
Here is a pic of me back in the day, on Sensi Street.

Medical, without going into details. But the Rec side is fun too .. seriously since I increased my knowledge of cannabis = less alcohol .. less pain relievers .. less pharmacy drugs in general. Increased overall quality of life. And a whole lot less expensive if your able to grow your own.
