    Start slow! Small amount and work your way into it. It’s also just not as exciting as they made it out to be warning us as kids 😂

    • Bear.Cerberus

      lol i was about to say "start slow" then i saw your comment

      Right🤣🤣🤣 No it's not

      yeah dare made it seem like people would just offer to sell it. My advice for any mind altering substance is be with people your comfortable around.

      • Denotchka

        I don't tbink thar's what hr's taking about. Look up hemp oil and cbd oil. This stuff is actually legal. You're talking about marijuanawhivh is a street dtug they're kegalizing to confuse folks. Also look up mesical research in the Journal of American Medicine and The American Medical Association. Also type in Cannabanoid oil or CBD oil.

        Just an FYI: everything your DARE officer told you about cannabis is a lie. Gateway drug my a$$!! I have neatly 1 year clean off a 10 year addiction, and you know what has helped me not want my drug of choice? Cannabis!!

  • Mark88

    562d

    Actually, try not to take higher doses, sometimes it takes some experimenting to understand and feel the effect of cannabis 🙌

  • monstera

    I actually have developed a dependency on cannabis and am having difficulty not using it (happens to about 30% of people that use it). But it typically would calm me down and slow things down for me which is nice- other times and more often lately it makes me anxious and causes sleep problems.

    • TheMoonGoddess420

      152d

      You might need indicas because sativas trigger anxiety and keep you awake. Indicas calm anxiety and help you fall asleep. It's all about what type of strain it is. Some are indica dominant some are hybrid 50/50 and some are sativas.

    • Buffering

      same here. I’ve used daily and it was a great help at first, after awhile it wasn’t enough and I began drinking and getting into psychotropics. 😥

  • Lore

    561d

    I am too worried about becoming addicted as I have a highly addictive personality.

    • kittty

      209d

      luckily it isn't chemically addictive like cigarettes or alcohol, so if you decide to quit you shouldn't experience any withdrawal symptoms:)

      • Sidhelah

        206d

        yes...and strangely no one ever calls an ongoing prescription for anti-anxiety/depression meds an addiction....you DARE kids have to readjust the definition in your mind from elicit drug which it is not anymore in many places, and begin to think of it as medicine as it was always meant to be.

      • windex.official

        38d

        as someone who has been vomiting and shaking and getting hot flashes and night sweats and cold sweats and incredible anxiety from going cold turkey on weed after smoking every day for only a few months, you can DEFINITELY experience withdrawals. I actually think this might be worse than my nicotine withdrawals were. the mental addiction was bad enough that I quit my job, slept 15 hours a day, almost completely isolated myself, and made excuses every time I was invited out. obviously there is no chemical dependancy, but it's very important to educate yourself before you tell people they can't get addicted to something. although there is no chemical dependancy, there is a massive psychological dependancy. if you smoke too often, your cannabinoid receptors will assume that being high is the way your body is supposed to function. so when you stop, your body essentially goes into panic mode because your cannabinoid receptors are yelling at your brain that something is off. I'm not trying to be rude or anything like that!! I just would really hate for anyone else to have to go through it as well, I'm a very big advocate for safe cannabis consumption and I think more people should know about it, ya know? I think too many people, especially young, hear that there is no chemical dependancy and that it's the healthiest recreational drug to take and then they go wild.

  • Hisser

    I feel awkward asking for it and been Binoid Delta 8 online instead.

  • Rachael

    557d

    It works sometimes

  • Zander

    557d

    Be super careful! It’s easy to over do it and you can develop a tolerance which trust me is not fun. Also avoid concentrates like dabs and oil they’re linked to higher dependence, hyperemesis syndrome, and sometimes psychosis. Hope that helps - Your friendly neighborhood medical marijuana patient 🤗

    • happyandhealthy

      211d

      what about rbo?

    • Sidhelah

      206d

      yeah I cough way more and less productively with dabs and oil, it's harder to regulate your usage, and it makes your lungs feel sticky. Now I only use it as a topping on a good old salad sometimes...or sublingually. I have had the gi issues...not fun.

  • Pretty_Nora

    556d

    When do guys suggest using it? What works for you?

    • PB48

      239d

      I use the delta 8 suckers and gummies and find it's better to take one around bed time. Helps me sleep really good. They have vapes too but I have never smoked so I don't really like those. They make everything from suckers to gummies, brownies candy you just have to try them to find out what works for you. Try them at home first because I tried 100 mg first and it knocked me out. I find 60 mg is good at bed time but if I am feeling anxious I can use a 25 mg sucker during the day

      • Fwd1982

        236d

        yeah but u know delta 8 has no thc what so ever right so its only cbd

      • wanderingSOUL

        159d

        where on earth do you find suckers???? All I find are the edibles and pens

    • Buffering

      81d

      I have 5mg THC mints I take in the morning and after lunch at work. Micro-dosing has gotten me through some pretty tough days that I know I would have been unable to handle on my own.

  • Zander

    556d

    I would recommend trying it at a time when you have no obligations for a good 12 hours just in case you get too high. You can’t really overdose but you can overdo it which is called greening out. I would recommend edibles if you want precise dosing.

    • Noah_Arts

      247d

      do be careful with edibles, they are a whole different level compared to smoking it. Micro-dosing will be your best friend👍

      • CarisNotCharis

        42d

        absolutely agree! I've had some bad experiences tripping on edibles 😭

  • katie27282

    i use a thc lotion and it works miracles it helps with my stomach so much!

    • Beautifullyhuman_

      206d

      what kind of lotion do you use?

      • TheMoonGoddess420

        152d

        My favorite one is Chill Medicated and it really does help for different ailments. It's a topical so you just put it on your body.

    • Faithhope

      196d

      interested. More info.

  • JRRWoods

    554d

    Ive found it extremely useful for nausea and stomach pain. Even anxiety. But it's easy to build up a tolerance and start smoking way too much.

    • Sidhelah

      206d

      I always used it for my gi issues too, but I had one episode where smoking it made my stomach pain worse. Kind of like a cig can make your heartburn worse....

  • vannaray

    553d

    I love cannabis. I'm a canna mom and it has helped me for years.

  • MamaKittyDMG

    553d

    I'm a habitual smoker. I usually start with a sativa dominant strain in the morning. Cherry pie is definitely my go-to. Light smoking in the morning to help deal with pain/depression. I usually only take a couple hits every couple of hours to deal throughout the day. I get an indica dominant strain for bedtime and smoke heavily to help get to sleep.

    • RadiantPig3

      211d

      Ditto!

    • Sidhelah

      🤗 soul sister...sounds like my day!

    • jam064

      197d

      definitely good advice. And like some people have said, start small. In addition, a lot of people don't feel it the first time, so if you don't feel it, don't worry. It might just take another time or two.

  • Bucket

    553d

    I can't tolerate THC at all so I use hemp CBD oil and find it helps my pain and my anxiety without any side effects which is super nice.

    • ARy916

      236d

      Same!!

    • CarisNotCharis

      42d

      same! I always trip really badly with THC, but I use CBD oil, balm and occasionally smoke hemp flower

  • Vici2

    551d

    I have Crohn’s disease for more than 10 years.. I believe in the conventional therapy because it helps me a lot but sometimes when the pain is worsen I take cannabis oil. It calms my stomach but I can’t concentrate after using this oil because it contains THC too. There are also oils without THC but they didn’t work on my stomach pain. I always suggest trying controlled stuff that can help with pain 🙏🏼

  • Emma37

    550d

    Start slow and be patient!! At first i tried edibles (cookies). Because I didn't wait enough time, I ate more than needed and it felt like way too much.. After I learned what the right dose for me is, the experience was much better and it helped me deal with painful episodes of my MS.

    • CarisNotCharis

      42d

      At first I tried a lower dosage of edibles, which worked wonders for me. But then I drastically increased the dosage and it was also too much for me too. So second starting slow and with smaller dosages

  • JM815

    549d

    Try Delta 8 THC, it’s fully legal. It’s like the high without completely spacing you out. I’ve been dependent on “regular” THC for over a year as it has helped my IBS and Anxiety at the same time. It calms me down, helps me with my stomach cramps (Idk how!) and works as anti-nausea. I’ve taken a few breaks here and there but I definitely notice how well it helps me. Just start slow, and find the way that makes you most comfortable, smoking, vaping, edibles. Just make sure your doctor knows you’re using it, and make sure to keep an eye on your body in every aspect. I’ve lost over 20 pounds (unintentionally and now I’m severely underweight) thanks to IBS and chronic THC use, but I enjoy the benefits too much to give it up. My doctor, and I’m sure yours would too, believe in the true medical power of cannibis.

    • Fwd1982

      236d

      yeah but u do realize that delta 8 has no thc what so ever right

  • BeautifulDisaster

    548d

    Definitely start slow and I recommend indica strains or indica dominant hybrid strains :)

  • Haleya724

    547d

    I find sativa works best for me just because of my depression but my favorite is hybrid sativa dominant

  • Ellen

    547d

    Never used myself because I'm too scared.. but my friend uses CBD oil for sleep problems - she takes two drops under the tongue in the evening and it's really helping her fall asleep.

    • Sidhelah

      206d

      don't be afraid of Mother Nature's apothecary! I'm far more scared of Big Pharma's addictive concoctions of man made chemicals! But just go slow...notice how it affects you and adjust accordingly. Also remember it is not physically addictive and will wear off after a few hours. Worst case you cough for a few secs...eat creative snacks...and fall asleep;)

  • Mark88

    Was it given by a doctor? Do you know which type or dose is recommended for chronic pain?

    • Sidhelah

      206d

      Indica for pain...but the strong strains are sometimes called "couch weed" because you are so relaxed that you don't want to do anything else. Sativa on the other hand can energize and lift your mood, giving you a more motivated buzz. A blend or hybrid can really help you tailor it to your needs;)

    • TheMoonGoddess420

      152d

      Indicas are good for chronic pain.

  • sassykass

    546d

    Absolutely i fully recommend it! Medically as well. I just got my mmj card. I feel 100 times better still ache still nausea but i can function. If you dont want to smoke there is tincture patches creams gummies pills! Theres a lot

  • Alberto

    I tried vaping CBD because I was told it might help with my insomnia. It helped for a while but it made me too lazy and groggy in the mornings so I decide it's best to stop.

    I take cannabis oil and it really improves my sleep. For my chronic pain it helps much less than the opioids, but I prefer it over the risk of addiction.

  • Nimbus

    542d

    I smoke cannabis socially only, it helps feel more indifferent to my surroundings and balances my anxiety. I try not to go overboard with it so that it won’t make me too apathetic.

    • Sidhelah

      206d

      try a nice bright sativa:) can increase focus and empathy, and make things just more interesting...especially when you have to hang with those to whom you don't relate.

  • Khai

    541d

    Worked wonders for my tics and seizures except for finding out I'm allergic to it. That put a short stop and a hard limit on what I could take.

    • Sidhelah

      206d

      hmm...it could be certain terpenes in the strain. Also sometimes I get a bag that I can tell was stored in hay. I usually get a sinus infection or allergy eyes if I smoke that! Research the terpenes and smell the bag...if it smells hay-ey or like lawn clippings...or the worst...moldy...don't buy it.

  • Quinee

    I tried cannabis oil several times for severe abdominal pain attacks .. Although there was significant relief in the abdominal pain, I went into terrible anxiety and depression! I consulted my doctor, and he explained that if someone has a disposition for depressive disorder, using cannabis can aggravate depression.

  • Isabella

    541d

    In the last year, I have started using medical cannabis to relieve the chronic pain I am suffering from. For me, it's a wonder drug! Significant pain relief and far more effective than other painkillers I have tried over the years

  • Blueeyedangel31

    532d

    I have in several different occasions, I have scoliosis in my back (spine not straight) and arthritis in my knees,hips, jaw joints and right hand, I have tried several different strains between indica and stevia and it worsens my pain 10 fold. My mom and her boyfriend smoke it every day several times a day but I stay away from it.

  • SaruMae

    532d

    I tried it, smoked WAY too much of it (no one told me how much I was supposed to have), and it triggered dp/dr. Haven't been the same since.

    • ThickAndTired

      252d

      it did this for me as well when I was 16. stopped until I did it again at 21. treating my underlying anxiety helped greatly in avoiding those issues, and once you begin to understand that dp/dr is only a symptom of anxiety, and will NEVER last forever (it hasn’t for anyone ever before) trust me you will begin to feel calmer. that time period was the scariest time of my life, because I had no idea what was going on. if you need any support lmk

    • CarisNotCharis

      42d

      that happened to me the 4th/5th time I took edibles and took too high of a dosage, but didn't last for long thankfully 🙏

  • Virgie3

    532d

    Edibles, 1:1 indica actually helps me relax a lot at night. You can also just take little bits of it to get use to it.

  • werekitty96

    532d

    Inhalation types knock me on my butt but the edibles help me a lot I just have to microdose. Helps me with pain, anxiety, depression, and surprisingly enough my eating disorder.

  • pogsnail

    531d

    I'd suggest if it's for smaller things start off at a hit or 2 but for chronic pain I recommend 3 to 4 hits, take a break between for about 5 to 10 to get a good feel for how high you are and see if you need more, most people on their first try will only give themselves a minute to feel out how the feel and that what will cause you to green out too fast, take a hit into your mouth than inhale the smoke in your mouth into your lungs to make the hit not hurt. I use it to help with my sleep, sensory and eating problems but it used to make my anxiety really bad. For edible though you should start with stuff below 5 mg to be careful, edibles take 40 mins to an hour and a half to work and can cause you green out out easier cause you can't feel it as quick as inhilation.

    • CarisNotCharis

      42d

      that literally happened to me. With edibles I started with like 25-30mg. Was fine. Then went straight up to like 122mg. Had a bad trip. Then the next time took 40mg and didn't have a great experience either. So definitely agree with starting small

  • MOVi

    531d

    Be careful with edibles! I had a horrible experience with it just once! Different for everyone but for me nope never ever again

  • Skinnyminnie

    530d

    Very calming for me but be aware that it could make anxiety worse

  • iluvoliver1201

    I used it to help my anxiety and ptsd worked wonders! However me being 26 weeks pregnant its not an option and i did go through withdrawl symptoms for three weeks after dropping it. So be careful.

  • Kitten

    527d

    Start slow and find what works for you. If you smoke it, experiment with ways to smoke it. If you want to try edibles make sure to start with low low doses. Only try dabs after experimenting with the others.

  • CherryCoke

    527d

    It helps me loads! Especially when I'm trying to sleep but can't and wind up staying awake with my thoughts. I would just use it sparingly if I were you, because you don't wanna just do it every time your hands need something to do (in which case cbd cigarettes are a fantastic replacement)

  • Kittygirl2419

    527d

    Maybe this is a dumb question but I'm considering using it. The only issue is my work place drugs tests and I'm afraid of losing my job over what seems like my only option to stop having to use otc pain meds like an addict. I'm scared for my liver by the amount I need to take to even impact my pain

    • meold

      247d

      My son has bipolar. He uses tinctures and edibles. He was concerned about his job too but he went to the HR and told them he was using medical cannabis under doctors orders and just had a conversation with them about why he needs it and that it is a prescribed treatment. The conclusion was that they couldn't fire him for that anymore than they could fire him for any other prescription drug used under doctors advice. He told them that he dosed in the evening and it shouldn't have any effect on his ability to do his job during the day.

  • Nagrom

    521d

    It doesn't help the pain but it does make me not care that I am in pain.

  • Gorilla

    520d

    High CBD blends help a lot. Thc is psychoactive. Cbd is mainly the body high experience. Mix them together and they make you feel more comfortable, mentally and physically. Probably 2:1 CBD/THC mixture is good. I started on it. Pain is is usually worse at night for me, so it’s convenient too.

  • ILove420

    513d

    Anyone scared to jump into cannabis? Try the PG-13 version! Its called delta 8 THC, it has less side effects than the real stuff and keeps you high functioning, while still offering pain relief, stress relief, and anxiety help. Not recommend for kids!

  • Bluebird

    512d

    I’ve been smoking cannabis since I was very young and it has helped with my insomnia, anxiety, eating disorders, and my appetite issues. I don’t have a dependency but I’m very careful and pay attention to the mgs of thc and cbd

  • casslynne

    491d

    it’s absolutely amazing as long as you’re in a place you feel comfortable in if you’re smoking a lot. it’s easy to get uncomfortable when you’re really high in an unfamiliar place but other than that it always helps me cope. i’d recommend sativa if you’re depressed / unmotivated. it gives me a lot of energy and makes me really happy and giggly

  • purplepotato

    491d

    If you dissociate at all DO NOT USE CANANBIS

  • babygirl52

    491d

    Cannabis depending what your talking about edibles or smoking... Sometimes both will cause anxiety I smoked 2 bowls and hit a few rips of the bong and I started getting anxiety really bad so my limit is usually 3 hits. Edibles gotta start slow take a little it will hit in a hour or so but don't over due it because you will be messed up lol Smoking start off slow I usually smoke but off 3 hits I'm blown. Also if you wanna feel energetic use sativa and if you just wanna be lazy use indica I love both just depends on what I feel that day.

  • Cathie

    Cannabis has taken over for my migraine, anxiety and depression meds. I only take thyroid medication. It has helped me in so many ways!

  • deviousCthulhu

    491d

    Cannabis, (and Delta 8) has been the only pain reliever that works since I stopped being allowed to take nsaids due to my stomach. I couldn't function without it. It even substitutes for my zofran when my tolerance for the zofran gets too high. My tolerance for cannabis is to a point now where I don't really get high anymore, but it still works as a pain reliever. Just be careful to only use as much as you need because tolerance breaks when it's your pain medication SUCK. Lol

  • exaustedeveryday

    491d

    Cannabis helps a lot with my pain. I don't get "high" I simply go into the mode of "pain tolerable" which is helpful.

  • Cannamae

    491d

    I have used cannabis for 5 years to manage various conditions. I’d highly recommend indica strains, but everyone is different. In my experience using edibles helps more with pain but vaporizing it helps more with anxiety.

  • constantpain67

    491d

    I saw where someone said Delta 8 with THC is legal.. I've never heard of it.. My pain management doctor said I would need to get with a neurologist in order to take synthetic pot for the several issues I have. Where could I get Delta 8?

    Hello! Love this conversation! Got my medical card a little over a year ago and this is what I think. I love it! I started off slow, tried lots of different things. Love my edibles. There are no cons but the pros would be that I sleep better, muscles relax before bed and it just helps me forget that I’m suffering from 3 chronic illnesses. Static’s is great to get chatty, then sleep after a long day. Good for weekends too. Indica is straight to bed for me. Hybrid gives you that perfect. Lotions are amazing.

    it depends on dosage, pre-existing conditions and even your genetics! start w a micro-dose and gradually find what’s best for you. definitely recommend trying it at least once. it does wonders for my joint pain

    I've had an autoimmune condition (Rheumatoid Arthritis) for 27 years. For 23 years I was on steroids. Very addictive. Could never cut it off. Until I discovered the strong anti-inflammatory qualities cannabinoids have. I ended up formulating my own oil, and now, I'm celebrating four years without steroids. My success inspired me to found Reclaim Labs. You are welcome to read my story here: https://www.reclaimlabs.com/pages/beating-arthritis

  • RosesForMyDear

    408d

    I did back when I was younger and i wish I could again, but my advice is to start slow and do what is more comfortable for you. For me it's edibles because I have asthma.

  • PinkPupButt

    407d

    its an amazing herbal treatment! I don't like to smoke cause of trauma with fire but edibles are even better I've found! it's an easier, better and predictable high too! you know almost exactly how much you're putting in you, not counting homemade ones, I either get zooted, stoned or both. it's kinda like a 30% thing but each time it's usually what I need in the moment. do be careful of what strain and what not you use though, everyone reacts differently, for me I perfer Indica but distrust Sativa cause of how fast my heart goes goes while I'm high. I often found myself unable to sleep after taking it cause my heart would beat so hard I couldn't sleep no matter how hard I tried. it takes time to find what works for you just like any other medicine.

  • Jadie

    407d

    Research how your chronic illness or disorders will respond and all the different methods of consumption of THC and the different forms of CBD. Eat it smoke it apply it whichever works, but one method might not so it may take time to sort it out. Look for risk factors for negative experiences like diagnosis or family history of certain psychotic disorders. Learn how itll affect your body not just mind. It can be soooo useful to a lot of people but not everyone will have a good reaction so go slow and try one thing at a time.

  • Cassiopeia17

    Start small and in a safe environment with no obligations! It’s been incredibly helpful for me, but we have very hard rules in our household about not leaving the house while using it or operating any hot tools, even if we feel capable. There is nothing worse than taking some, assuming it was too low a dose, and then getting slammed with it while out and about

  • Kendoll

    I used it for pain management after top surgery and for nausea day to day. It worked wonderfully, i only took two pain pills out of the 7-14 i was meant to. (Dont remember exactly) During the peak of my depression and abusive relationship, it egged on a psychotic break. I havent had any issued with psychosis since then and i still use it on the same dose, maybe higher. Ive also been reading that it may make nausea worse in the long term, ive been using it for that for about 5 years, and it hasnt made it any worse yet. Although it’s difficult to get high at all, its more for normalcy, which is very detrimental to some people but the culture i live in makes it easy. Best thing it did for me was allowing me to skip opiates after surgery.

    I could not recommend it less. It made me feel sick and itchy and it stunk to high hell. To this day I cannot stand being near it and I've cut off some people who use it

    it can either heighten or reduce anxiety, so it’s kinda a 50/50. start slow or with CBD or delta-8. stay safe ❤️

    I loooove cannabis. It helps me with my anxiety (that is often times fully debilitating). Although earlier this year I did get cannabinoid hyperemesis syndrome and that was a truly awful experience. At the time I had been very into dabs and oils and concentrates and was using some sketchy ones, so I blame it on that. I have addiction problems, so it is hard for me with that, and I built my tolerance back up super fast. I end up smoking 6-10 joints a day, and I know that’s probably not helpful.

    i use a vape oil, usually of delta 8 because it has less psychotic affects, so i don’t get too high mentally, moreso just get good physical affects. i only do it on my really bad days, once or twice a week, and don’t do too much. it really helps with my chronic pain. only thing is it can cause a little tachycardia if you have any issues with that!

  • Fwd1982

    330d

    Yes and I’m with that dude that said to try indica first because sometimes sativa strain makes people have anxiety attacks like if I have been smoking indicas for a while now and I switch to a sativa I have to only take 3 hits cause if I do more I know I will have an anxiety attack and also don’t forget to inhale lol

  • srabelle

    330d

    definitely be careful! do research on strains for what you’re using it for and try to use legally if possible! it can cause dependency which can end up causing more problems so i would suggest talking to your doctor or doing research online!!

  • Loocifer

    My use of cannabis differs greatly depending on the day I have planned, if I have things planned for morning/ early afternoon, I’ll usually have a hit or two from my pen (I use mainly indices and indica leaning hybrids) and go about my day. Maybe having a couple of hits every 1/1.5ish hours to keep my pain, anxiety, tic levels down. If I’m off of work I’ll do a heavy smoke and make a nice breakfast (my meds make me not hungry so weed helps with that). Lightly using my pen throughout the day, or taking a lower dose edible for when I just am at home doing chores. The pain relief helps me take longer walks with my doggo 🥺

    Love it! Been an active smoker for decades but have medical issues and pharmacy drugs have given me neuropathy, which is no fun. Don't do sativa often as I'm hyper but indica...oh yea. Helps with appetite, nausea, anxiety, sleeping, relaxing and to some extent pain. Edibles don't work on me and thankfully so as they're terrible on your liver.

  • Donnysaur

    281d

    DONT TAKE EDIBLES WITHOUT AN EXISTING TOLERANCE. The one time I did ruined my life up till now. The difference is that with smoking you can control the amount gradually, whereas with edibles it hits all at once and it’s delayed so you’re tempted to take more- or the dose was too much and you won’t know until you zonk out. However- if it does happen- no matter how bad the panic attack is- don’t let yourself get too caught up in it. You CANNOT die. Have confidence in that knowledge and yourself. Sleep it off. The next day, let yourself heal. If I had just let the experience go I would probably have avoided multiple issues stemming from it.

  • aIex

    Start with low does. Actually start with something that is 2:1 cbd to thc ratio if you are in a place where it is legal. Marijuana can make some people more anxious. It does to me sometimes. I have found if I stick to low does ( 13 to 16% thc) and use indica and stay away from sativa I'm mostly good. I use that when I can be high and for sleep ( and yes it is very fun). I only take a hit or 2 at a time. Pay attention to the strains you like and if a strain makes you anxious just dont use that one anymore. The verity of effects from strain to strains is huge. The 2:1 cbd to thc stuff you can use wherever you want cbd counteracts the effects of thc it will not get you high or make you anxious. I had quit smoking marijuana for 10 years and now it is what works the best for my anxiety besides meditation and yoga.

  • bubblebea

    279d

    I am a regular user of flower, dab and edibles. DO NOT START WITH DAB OR EDIBLES. Start slow with flower and go from there, the first time I ever took a dab I felt like I was dying.🥴 It took my breath away and I felt like I couldn't breathe/catch my breath. I have started to ease up because I have been extremely anxious, here lately it has really caused me to have panic attacks which is very unusual. I think it has to do with the type of weed we got this time. Sometimes that happens though. Something that I found that helps me way more than weed is micro dosing shrooms, I literally have never been so happy and carefree in my life than while micro dosing.🥰 There are these one up mushroom chocolate bars and they are absolutely heavenly tasting.😋 My guy hasn't had them in a while! I wish he'd get more but told me it would take a while😕 It is worth looking into, they're amazing, but again take it slow! You're not really looking to trip so you want to be careful.💕

  • ThickAndTired

    I smoke everyday, it keeps me from overusing my brain with intrusive thoughts and emotions. I would recommend mixing your weed with lavender and mullein or other calming herbs. adds and extra level of peace. also start off smoking only once daily and do it in increments so you know where your body can handle, your tolerance will grow as you use it more, but you can take a 1 day break for a small reset.

  • Kannakanina

    I have found that cannabis helps me on days I feel too much pain nausea to eat, days when I have higher levels of anxiety and ptsd symptoms, and when my pain levels make basic daily tasks difficult. For me, I think of it as medication. Each delivery method differs in its impact and time frame. Anything edible (gummies, tinctures, distillate) takes a long time to impact and lasts a bit longer. Vaping hits much faster and smoking hits the fastest and strongest in my opinion. Since I have asthma, I use extra filtration systems. For vape cartridges, (most are 510 thread which means they attach to a specific style of screw on battery) I have a KR1 bubbler system that I can use as a battery and it filters the vaporized cannabis concentrate through water. https://hamiltondevices.com/product/kr1/ For smoking I have a large silver stick, which is a modern pipe with disposable cotton filters. https://thesilverstick.com/collections/the-silverstick-collection/products/silverstick-large On both I also use a “mouth peace mini” which is a silicone tube with a replaceable carbon activated filter that fits over the bubbler part of the vaporizer and fits on the mouth end of the silver stick. This way I avoid bacteria, resin, smoke and tar so that the easier more quick acting delivery methods are safer for my body. In addition, I recommend keeping a log of what strains you try and how much and what they help with. Then you can use the site Leafly to research what strains are similar and what terpenes they have so you know what works and what doesn’t for specific needs. I feel like investing in cleaner delivery systems with filters makes it much easier to use cannabis in small amounts and adjust in ways that take effect quickly. Joints, edibles, and concentrates are difficult to figure out dosing on to me. I also recommend regularly switching strains, as tolerance is less likely to build if you switch between two or three strains. ‘Strain drain’ as I’ve heard it called does happen - if you use only one strain you develop tolerance faster. Since different strains have different terpenes tat impacts t your body differently, switching things up does help your body not get to accustomed to one set of chemicals. I’ve been using cannabis medically for about 4 years and I am not dependent. I use it minimally, taking 1-3 hits from my vape when I need something mild to take the edge off of things, and using one bowl or if my silver stick if things are severe. There is a slim silver stick too which uses a much smaller amount of flower, but I tend to only smoke if things are severe and I limit the smoking to maybe once in a week. Everyone has different preferences, but I feel like my access to use it has helped me to live more of my life and not feel as physically overwhelmed with pain, nausea, and PTSD. The strains I choose are like specific medications for specific problems. I think of it only as medication. If anyone has specific questions that are cannabis related, I’m no guru, but I am happy to share my experiences with it if they can be helpful. 🙂

    I smoke an indica flower at night. I work with the elderly inhome so being stoned during the day isn't an option. But if the pain gets 2 bad I did purchase a Ratio cart for the vape. It has CBD and THC. CBD when taken w THC cancels out that high feeling. The despensory told me if u still feel 2 high take more CBD. It has helped me so much in my life.

  • klazikel

    I've been smoking for 30 yrs now and have a pretty high tolerance. I used to smoke to achieve a "high", but now it's for medical reasons. I smoke for pain, nausea, depression, anxiety, agitation and calming mania. Cannabis is just like any other med, we all have different chemistry and will get different effects. You have to find out what works for you. Thankfully for some people, there are lots of options out there. For those without those legal options in there state, be careful.

  • AlexaRae

    252d

    I feel no exaggeration in saying cannabis saved my life. More than once. The first time was during an intense low (the ‘threshold’) and I remember thinking I didn’t know anyone who killed themselves when they were high on weed, so I gave it a try and it brought me back from the edge. Again, more than once. Few years ago I developed functional neurological problems from too much stress, so I also started using it to keep my stress levels down, which cut down on the neuro problems but I also realized it could stop my anxiety attacks! Seriously cannabis helps bring me back to myself so I have the energy and mental perspective to work on my treatment.

  • AlexaRae

    252d

    My success with cannabis led me to spend the last couple years doing more study on it as medical treatment and I’m happy to talk more with anyone about it. When using cannabis medicinally it is very important to know a) what type of cannabis you need for your symptoms, and b) what is the best way to for you to administer it (topical, edible, sublingual, or smoking). For example, during an anxiety attack, I need an indica heavy strain because indica types are more calming, and I need to administer it through smoking because that is the fastest relief. But my depressive episodes affect my concentration so sometimes I need a sativa heavy strain because they can be more mentally stimulating. It’s incredibly easy to miss out in the benefits of cannabis cuz people don’t often know what they need

  • LivingDeadGrrrl

    252d

    Yes....NO SHAME! 8yrs! For me edibles are easier. But in doses...hard candy lozenges are great. I once are a whole Rice Krispy bar and got sick! Smoking I don't really feel it. For me it's just a old smoker habit(if that makes sense)I don't get the euphoric high most get. It has helped my stomach pain and nausea. It's also helped my lower back/spine & joint pain.

  • LadyPasta1

    I take medical marijuana in gummy form. I've never smoked anything and tried to smoke or vape weed, but just can't do it. So I use the gummies for pain and sleep. It's frustrating sometimes because it doesn't always work. Even when labeled as same milligrams, some work better than others. My daughter also has FM, but is able to take opiates, which I am allergic to.

  • AlyWare

    247d

    Cannabis gives me at least some pain relief and also helps with my daily nausea and barf issue. I take Letrozole and I feel nauseous so much that I micro dose cannabis to help with that. The chronic pain makes it tough to just do daily life . So I swear by it. And wish I had done it much sooner than I did. I have a pen that I carry for when I suddenly get barf and edibles are great for pain. But go east in edibles cause they are much different than smoking cannabis. Too much renders the day useless. You got find what works best for you. I prefer sativa or hybrid over indica. Which usually knocks me out.

    I love smoking! I just smoke for the buzz, not to get high most of the time. I have a card so I go to the dispensary and talk to the workers there (they’ll tell you all about the likelihood one strain will effect you this way or not). I smoke like my grandma drinks wine :) just a little bit to wind down for the night. I haven’t gained much of a tolerance at all since I go super easy, plus I’m not losing the hella-highs cuz I don’t like to smoke that much ❤️

  • Denotchka

    247d

    Yes be VERY CAREFUL! Avoid the marijuana cigarettes, that’s a problem. Try CBD there’s less THC which is what gets people high. The only time you may want to try that is if you’re not working. Always consult your physician before doing it as well. Also stick to the recommended dose.

  • vadafritz

    247d

    I love cannabis. It's one of the only things that has helped me cope. But lately I have developed a high tolerance. Not fun at all. And not cheap at all. Start slow and don't do stuff with super high THC percentages. That was my mistake. I wouldn't do anything under 30% (for no real reason) and am now paying for it... It can be a life saver though...

    I would start with CBD first before going the THC route. My son got highly addicted to cannabis, even though many say its not addictive, and it ruined his life. Now I am watching him slowly trying to rebuild his life again. I did try it once to see what all the hype was about and it not only made my pain and anxiety worse, it made me feel horrible for days. Just take it slow and be careful, taking into consideration all your doctor's recommendations on doseage.

  • audRei

    239d

    To give you tips i wish id been told when i first got high (what a doozy it was) im also assuming youre talking about smoking 1. Take one or two hits at first and wait a few seconds. If you dont feel anything, you didnt inhale right. Keep your lips almost and breath through them regularly, dont suck like it's a straw and dont hold the smoke in your mouth/swallow it. 2. GO SLOW WITH THE HITS. have a hit, savor it, let it out, have a few breaths of oxygen and then have another hit. You'll be able to stop before you get too high, it lets the joint last longer, and you'll feel the effects more evenly. 3. Lay down and have some water nearby. First seven times i got high it felt like the world was pulling me down. When i laid down my legs spasmed pretty intensely for the duration of the high while i was completely blissed out. It sounds scary but it really wasnt, i could still move and walk. If youre gonna be having an edible id say make sure you get from a reputable dispensery. Every edible ive had has been very bad, doesnt do anything despite me having more than the recommended amount. If youre using oils and butters for your skin dont be afraid to use a little more than recommended.

  • PB48

    I have recently started with the delta 8 gummies. I love the suckers. I usually have a 25 mg during the day and a 50 mg at night. Really helps my sleep and does wonders for my anxiety. I also enjoy the 60 mg gummies. It's best to start with low ones because the first one I had was 100 mg and it knocked me out. From what I understand Delta 8 is legal in ga because it is made from hemp. That's where you get the THC from

  • LyraDaenestra

    232d

    I know everyone is saying start slow but it depends. I started with a higher dose than I could handle and as much as it was a horrible experience it showed me exactly how it affects me so that I could actually notice it when I had smaller doses. I realized when and how it was affecting me really easily and it helped me to make sure I didn't decide to do the dishes when it starts to affect my short term memory. When I'm aware that it's affecting my short term memory it also helps me know when to stop if I'm using a pen. BUT when I said that it was a high dose for me that doesn't mean it was a high dose overall. It was actually under the average recommended amount for the average person. I am extremely lightweight and easily affected. So don't go any higher than any of the recommended doses you can find on Google, but if you're comfortable with the situation not being the best then you don't have to start with the lowest dose you can find. But if you do decide to risk it don't ever do it alone. Do it with someone who is experienced and caring so they can help you out if it's too much. My first time was a little too much but not too crazy. But because I was a stupid and living with my mom, my mom came home before it wore off and I ended up extremely stressed pretending to sleep. It affected me surprisingly up until the 24th hour. It wasn't nearly as strong after 12 hours but it hung around and made me a bit foggy. Also before starting be aware of the possible affects, know whether you are capable of handling those affects emotionally, and understand that there is little research completed on the long term affects and that there is new research. Especially research proving it is an addictive substance. I can't remember the video I watched but it's one of those fake white board animations, I recommend watching that and understanding how to quit if you think you are becoming dependent or if you don't want to have any addiction to it. Personally I don't think it's addictive until you've used it a few times but everyone is different. I experienced a slight addiction after using it for months. I quit and decided to stop using it. I may have light use in the future but until then I decided personally it's not worth it for me. Also it may be great at first but if it starts to make you feel bad don't keep using it. Especially if you think "next time will be better" multiple times. Also Also different forms of it may have different affects and long lasting affects. I'd find whatever lasts for the shortest amount of times. Specifically not edibles. If you're getting it legally without a prescription definitely do your research. If you are getting it through a prescription make sure to keep in touch with your doctor to make sure it's actually right for you to use. If you are getting it illegally, which I'd recommend you don't, then you should always start slow and be very careful. If you need help go to a doctor. They legally keep that information to themselves. And especially don't do it without a sober and caring person with you. If you do decide to do it illegally it can be a scary experience if it goes wrong. Another also, make sure you have plenty of water and snacks. And preferably not messy snacks. I had cheese puff like snacks (but cinnamon) and it was horrible. I didn't really know how to control my tounge all that well and couldn't get it out of my teeth. Talk to someone who is familiar with it to make sure you don't miss anything.

    • LyraDaenestra

      232d

      I also forgot, if you don't have an exact way to know the dosage (example: you're using a pen) check the percentage and don't think "I don't think it did anything" because you might find out the hard way that it absolutely did.

  • candieland73

    231d

    I am not anti cannabis but it's not for me. I loved it as a teen, but I've found as an adult with multiple health issues and chronic pain, though it does calm me & help me relax, it also intensifies my pain. I feel every ache separately & intensely which causes me to focus on it even more. I do want to stress, if you're going to try it, only get it from a dispensary. Marijuana isn't as safe as it was when I smoked in the 90's. Even if you know the person you're getting it from, unless they harvest their own, you don't know their supplier or what it may contain. Many street suppliers are lacing it with fentynal and many ppl are dying. Idk how many times I've said I'm glad I don't still use drugs cuz it's getting scary these days. I wish you good luck and hope you find it works for you!

    If you have to work, use a higher concentration of CBD and a lower one of THC. For me, I can't think if I take too much THC, and what works best is nothing higher than 5 to 1 (5 parts CBD to 1 part THC). You need some THC for the CBD to work well. When you are off work, you can change to a higher concentration of THC to fight the pain.

    Yes. Thc. Rick Simpson oil and other alternative medicine only way I get functional quality of life. From personal experience start slow and find what strains work best. I find for me ingesting thc/cbd together best. Also adding cbd cuts down on the anxiety for me when I rso

    I was doing a CBD pen , flower, and dabs to keep my mood stable from a meltdown or crying spell on my birthday. It's more of a situational thing.

  • History.and.cats

    212d

    It has helped me with chronic pain, sleep, and anxiety. The best tip I have is to start with a small amount, especially if you are trying edibles. You can always take more but if you take too much you just have to ride it out.

  • chronicchemist

    212d

    Start with a one hitter to see how you react to different strains. It has seriously helped with my pelvic pain and muscle spasms.

  • mogan

    So I find it helpful to practice my coping skills and self-confidence while using cannabis but I've learned from my own experience that's important to practice those skills also sober still and tolerance breaks are really important

  • Nikolas

    Trying it now, try it every day, wake up, pack the bowl, try it again

  • Zulma

    211d

    It works amazing!! Just take it easy.

  • Yufufu

    211d

    Yes, start with micro dosing. Which essentially means start small, then work your way up. I eat edibles which usually I always start small, like Alice in wonderland. I take a nibble then wait then take another nibble till I'm feeling good. Also remember there is Cbd which contains no Thc( that part of weed that gets you high) cbd just is there for the pain and to help relax you. 🦄

  • HyenaClan

    I have tried it twice. Once for depression and once for anxiety. Both times it helped for a while then flipped and wound up making it worse. The last time it triggered a panic attack that landed me in the ER. Not to say it doesn’t work my brother uses it for his anxiety and depression and it seems to work great. So I guess what I’m saying is take it slow listen to your body, and it helps to have a buddy to keep an eye on you the first couple times 🌻

  • Itsamandaliz

    210d

    Yes! I have found it helps with relaxing muscles and sleep. :)

  • Bridgette

    Gives me anxiety and it cost to much money for some cannabis. Rather take my 15$ anxiety meds. :)

  • Bridgette

    210d

    Also I say it's a gateway drug . Lots of people who smoke weed I know for a fact has thought about doing other drugs too. Its common so again why I don't recommend it but that's my opinion.

  • FrogDe

    210d

    It helps a lot, i suggest edibles. One alone should do if you never had it before. Indica will make you tired and Sativa will make you more awake and needy for somethin to do. Cbd is good for anxiety and physical pain, THC is good for recreational or just a break from your head :))

  • Redd1966

    Several times! But I can't hang. I even had a Marijuana card and rarely used it Just not for me. But not against anyone who enjoys it for pain depression or pleasure 🙂

    I'd say the same thing. Super helpful but not a real big hype after. Start off small, if ur taking an eatable so not take on an empty stomach and wait for hr or 2 before part taking more.

  • Captain_Marvel

    Cannabis for what it’s just a temporary escape after your high has gone away your issues will still be there

      but no withdrawls or hangover, and it can also make it easier to meditate on and talk about your problems, and can help you not take little problems so seriously. So it doesn't cure your issues but it can help you face them.

  • Elizalo

    207d

    I use it for pain management with great success. Definitely start slow. If you can get a medical card then try the tinctures and tablets first.

  • tattooedlizardlady

    207d

    Research all methods of consumption, onset times, strengths, %, and make sure you get it from someone/somewhere reliable. I work for a corporate medical cannabis company if you have any questions that come up.

  • Critter101

    207d

    Edibles always hit you way harder than smoking it, plus they take 40ish minutes to kick in where smoking it is 10-15mins. So be aware that a 20% THC edible is not equal to a 20% THC flower.

  • ZeepZoop

    207d

    I do it now and then and I really love it. I think the mood it puts me in is great for my mental health. Usually I do it with friends so we giggle together and watch TV and eat snacks and crack jokes. It's definitely the best with friends, but solo it can be good to just relax with or look at memes with.

    As a person with something similar to asthma, if you're planning on smoking it, inhale as little as possible because even with e-cigs made for weaker longs, it can suddenly make you go into a coughing fit if you inhale. I only breathed in for a second or two but it was a heavy inhale, so I got a coughing fit, so yeah otherwise just go at your own pace and make sure you're in an environment where you don't have to do anything too complicated mind wise

    • Sidhelah

      206d

      I also have asthma, and I found that if I have to cough...smoking the dry herb allows my cough to be productive and sometimes can calm an attack. But vapes of oil or straight dabs make a really sticky, dry, unproductive cough that leaves my lungs far closer to triggering attack in the face of a small irritation...like A/C

    • Sidhelah

      206d

      also...vapes have a different inhale method. You should fill your mouth then inhale instead of pulling from your diaphragm like smoking a bowl/joint. Often you can't feel it hit your/throat right away and is like what we used to call "expando-weed" because you would think you took a small hit but then feel it overflow into something you can't "maintain"...dude;)

  • Cheylo

    206d

    I just recently started using cannabis in a medical sense and I have a couple different ones. I have for pain management and for sleep and anxiety. And it's really different on what you take. Edibles have a different feel that smoking does and edibles once it kicks in its already going strong so I like smoking because I can control how much I take and I feel like it wears off a bit quicker so I can still do everyday functioning without feeling too high. But then I also have once that makes me sleepy (also helps with anxiety) and it kind of makes your brain feel like soft and quiet and gives you a calm tired feeling. While the other one I have for pain and anxiety/depression give me more of a head high it feels a little stuffy and fuzzy (but in a good way?) And I can still be active and paying attention to things and I also feel lighter and happier like my body feels relaxed.

  • Dad.of.Many

  • JoeBo

    206d

    Contrary to what people say, it can be addictive. I was addicted for over a decade but I've been clean from it for over 9 months now.

    • Sidhelah

      206d

      there is physical addiction like coke or heroin or opioids gets you...and mental or emotional addiction where you think you need it which is what happens with marijuana especially if you use it effectively for pain or anxiety/depression. If you stop you will have to readjust your thinking/coping skills but at least you won't have to deal with the uncontrollable physical withdrawl.

  • DefConHeavy

    206d

    While there can be a mental addiction component to cannabis Or any drug or anything for that matter. In my personal experience I found it to be extremely helpful for PTSD ,anxiety, depression, Inflammation. The withdrawal from it will not kill you like alcohol will. However it can be expensive I no longer use the Flower but the concentrated oil since I have been using since I was 13 years old and I'm 39 now. It's not for everyone. The state that I live in just made it legal we're waiting now for stores to open up that will be providing the services. I look forward to this as I know they will have many different kinds and there will be a standard to the quality As well as packaging rules and Regulations.

  • Sidhelah

    206d

    Know your strain...Indica will give you more of a body buzz and is good for pain and sleep. Sativa is more of a head buzz and is good for creativity, depression and anxiety. Hybrids are a cross strain. Today, you can really target your needs by choosing specific strain crosses. Start slow, remember smoking and edibles have different absorption methods and length of time until you feel effects. Keep an eye on dosage when eating edibles because a tiny thing can pack a punch. Combine with yoga breathing and mindfulness to pay attention to how you feel physically and mentally before, during, and after. Enjoy!

  • HSCookie

    👍it helps me with pain alot.

  • hails711

    206d

    START IN SMALL AMOUNTS!! Too much at once will cause you to "green out." When you do that, it feels like you drank way too much. The room starts spinning and you'll be inclined to vomit. (For perspective, I took 2 medium hits from a bong and ended up greening out.) But yes, THC dulls the mental and phsycial pain. I quite enjoy it at night so if it makes me fall asleep, I didn't lose a whole day. It's not a daily thing for me however. I struggle enough with losing time sober.

    • Sidhelah

      smoke...then drink. Dont drink then smoke unless you want to kick in some intense bedspins.....

  • Sidhelah

    I am convinced that part of the emergence of depression sometimes comes from the realization that you are not mentally or emotionally stable and may need to be "one of those people who need to be medicated". That's depressing;P

  • ChronicJ

    196d

    I smoke all the time to help with my aches. I use the pen and my favorite atm is called unicorn p*ss. It doesn't give me personally an extreme high. Just a light little bump up. I also have a high tolerance though so take it small at a time and everyone reacts different, but being new to it most likely you are just gonna pass out after smoking.

  • Catsavior

    196d

    I take edibles but I've used cannabis bud before. Start of with a few hits. Depending on how strong the weed is you can end up geeking out but it feels amazing. It helps with withdrawal symptoms as well as pain, anxiety.

    I started smoking weed for insomnia then developed chronic pain. I am dependent on it now, my biggest advise is to NEVER wake and bake (smoke first thing in the morning) While it’s nice, it was what caused me to start smoking more and more. I use cartridges because it doesnt involve any set up and it is effective

  • RogueDream

    159d

    I take half of a weed gummy a day and it helps with my mental health so much. I’ve never felt relief before even on tons of meds before until a few days ago. Also gummy doesn’t give you munchies or any bad affects like smoking does.

  • wanderingSOUL

    159d

  • Denotchka

    156d

    There’s a lot of cannabis products, but don’t just grab them from the drugstore. Look around for people who made sure that they had a decent product. Make sure you get something with low THC unless you want that. THC is a chemical that can cause intoxicating affects. Make sure you get a pure product as well.

  • Jojo97

    155d

    Definitely don't go into using any drug, prescription or otherwise, with an expectation of what it will do for you. Cannabis can cause psychosis in some people, so being mindful and aware of how you're feeling is the most important. If you start to feel numb in a way that inhibits processing your emotions, then I personally recommend reducing our even quitting use of it.

  • Cosmocat

    155d

    Take small doses first like cut half of a edible and let it set for 30 minutes. Don’t take too much where your body can’t handle it and don’t drink alcohol with cannabis. I got sick from doing that and learned my lesson

  • zav

    155d

    I use it for depression, anxiety and sensory issues. My main tip is to start with a very low dose, 1-2 hits if you’re smoking, one 3 second hit if you’re vaping. You do NOT want to green out your first time, it’s not fun at all.

  • Mj5

    155d

    There are different kinds. I personally prefer edibles or tinctures bc of my lungs. Also I cannot take sativa as it escalates my anxiety and wires me out where I can't sleep. Indica (indacouch is how I remember it) is much better for pain and anxiety. Edibles takes a little longer to start working. First time users definitely don't eat a whole gummy. I would suggest starting at a 1/4 to 1/2 and waiting 30-45 minutes for it to work. There are some hybrids (indica and sativa mix) that I can take but has to be indica dominant. Need to treat it as medication (that's what it is and intended for) try these at home do not drive and if you have children make sure there is someone with you. As far as addiction goes, it is possible as you can become addicted to anything aka drugs, social media, shopping, the list goes on. Everything in moderation. But I feel cannabis has the least side effects then anything else I've taken for pain, nausea, and anxiety.

  • katitomato

    152d

    Definitely start with a small dose, especially if you take medications! And go slow, don’t try to take a big dose to look cool or because you don’t think it’s working. The high might creep up on you, so be prepared to change your mental state. And don’t worry, no one’s ever died of a cannabis overdose and the side effects are very minimal. Also, keep snacks/food around because the munchies are so real. Are you gonna be smoking, vaping, taking edibles, using tincture? What method of consumption will you be using, because that will make a big difference on how you should dose.

  • shell13

    137d

  • des00000

    136d

    I like it, I don't do it everyday and I don't do it in high amounts, I have a dab pen that I use when I feel really depressed, really stressed/agitated, can't sleep and during periods. I prefer the dab pen because (for me) I feel it's a more clear minded high effect so I can still focus and not feel really foggy brained.

    • des00000

      136d

      I feel it does help with my depression by putting me in a bit of a lighter mood, but I avoid it if I feel incredibly anxious. Not just stressed but like having a day where I feel too on the edge of a panic attack

  • Nanavae

    136d

    Make sure that the dispensary you choose has knowledgeable employees. They should be able to recommend the proper strain for what you need. Being proactive is also a plus. Know your bud.

    Would like advice as well 😅 smoked weed for about 2 or 3 years for my insomnia but after I moved and some ~trama~ happened, I stared getting severe paranoia when smoking, does anyone know what can help? I'm trying higher CDB strains but there's still a decent amount of oooof.

  • Lanawinters

    136d

    I used to… but I had to stop sue getting fired from my job after being hospitalized 😥 it is so hard to get it out of your system if you do it consistently. I honestly don’t understand why we still get drug tested for thc when it’s pretty much legal in any state.

  • mothman2.0

    136d

    I do, not consistently but semi-frequently (a few times a month). I think it's great, and it helps me feel distant from a lot of the pain I feel from my autoimmune disease, but I have also noticed that it can sometimes make the pain feel more acute; the pain is worse, I just don't feel like it's my pain. It's weird. I see that you have anxiety under your diagnoses: be cautious with weed. Too much or too frequently can cause psychosis, and if you are in a poor headspace I'd advise against it. I have schizoaffective disorder and have to be extremely careful.

    Personally I’ve been smoking since I was 17 and I’m now 25. A little at a time when you first start, and also everyone is different with how they want to consume it, edibles, smoking, pill form. I prefer smoking it because I can control how much I take. Just smoked a cbd joint and it helped the pain I was having in my back.

    Try using dart pods it like a weed vape basically but you can set the dose yourself so you know how little you want to start with and they come in flavors too so it can taste good and they last at least 3 months if you use it daily and it has 0 smell it will smell on the moment as you puff it out but that it the smell just goes away and it doesn't linger on clothes either it has a lock system too for safety

  • Lin92

    96d

    Start slow, and pay attention to the strains. They do make a difference. There's 3 catagories. Indica, Hybrid, and Sativa.

  • Olivebutter2236

    82d

    Cannabis does incredible things for a lot of people BUT it isn't some magical miracle drug and it doesn't work for everyone and that needs to be talked about more. If you want to consider it medicinal you must accept that with medications what works amazing for one person might not work well for another and that's okay. Its worth trying for everyone imo but don't let people make you feel bad if you decide its not for you.

  • RosiePosie21

    82d

    Start small especially if you’re taking edibles. The standard gummy will be a dose of 10 mg but I suggest actually starting with 5mg. Not everyone reacts the way they would expect it too. Some people do get paranoia and anxiety. If you do try being somewhere that you feel safe in. Public smoking and paranoia just don’t mix. If that doesn’t work cannabis may not be for you.

  • Eren2273

    I take a 10mg edible about an hour before I want to go to bed because it makes me so sleepy. Taking one is the only time I don’t feel in pain. If I could function on it I would use instead of the plethora of meds I’ve been on in the past.

  • OurLadyOfChaos

    81d

    For me, it worsened my pain and anxiety (bc it made my anxiety worse). It made me even less motivated and destroyed any executive function I did have. It also worsened my psychosis or brought it back when it had gone away. It's not like that for everyone I know, and I used it for years with out problems. But tbh even when it didn't cause all those problems, it never helped with my pain.

  • matchedsocks

    80d

    I am someone who is a regular cannabis consumer so I would love to give you my insight! I have a medical card and I struggle with depression, anxiety, cptsd, insomnia, ocd traits and bipolar. I find that smoking especially at night before bed is helpful. CBD is also great if you do not want the psychoactive effects THC has. CBD is great for pain, anxiety and depression. It gives you more of that relaxed feeling in your body but it does not get you to the point where you are glued to your chair or bed lol. If you have asthma maybe tinctures or edibles would be best! Tinctures are better for medicinal use as the effects hit quicker and it’s a bit stronger, they offer them for both THC and CBD.

  • katiebug6

    hey! i’ve tried it for anxiety and i had a terrible experience. i hated feeling out of control of my body, so rather than helping, using it would trigger some of the most horrible panic attacks and delusions i’ve ever experienced.

    One gummy a night. :)

  • Lavs

    79d

    Yes and yes!! Depends what you want it for. In the states I love sativas for mind relaxing. You can go to a shop and ask for something giggly or uplifting, or a strain that specifically will not make you paranoid or anxious. Leafly.com is a great resource. I recommend gummies if you don’t want to smoke but there’s a million options. Cbd oil is great for sleep! Everyone does respond differently though- for example a lot of people who smoke for medicinal reasons do it to stop muscle aches, but a few strains I’ve smoked have left my whole body aching while I was high, it’s pretty weird. PBut whatever feels right for you is valid!

  • Lavs

    79d

    I would start with the smallest dosage possible and do research on a good strain. Ideally try it with someone you can trust but if not it’s okay on your own too :)

  • Pattie96

    79d

    It really helps me with my ptsd and chronic pain if I take it medicinally. I result to it as my last choice. The strain you smoke matters as well as the edible you consume. I find that a high thc:cbd helps me a lot… but the THC is what really helps me. However, I really try to limit my consumption to once or twice a week on a weekend.

    Helps me a lot with sleep, though if you have low blood pressure issues, be careful because it can dilate your blood vessels! But very good for sleep and helping with anxiety and in some cases with tourettes!

    I've had a low dose of thc and it knocked me out like a light. My body felt very numb and I was relaxed, so it really helps with pain too. It's very accessible where I live so I can get it whenever I feel the need.

    I started off with Delta 8 because it's a milder high. Don't smoke too much right away since it can make anxiety worse. Don't smoke and ride a vehicle or be in tons of motion while high

    Make sure you are around people you trust and don't take to much make sure to start small also if you take edibles do not take to many because they aren't working fast enough I made that mistake the first time I tried them

    I have a medical cannabis prescription from uk. Psychosis is extremely rare amongst cannabis user and the papers will tell you it’s an excel gateway drug. I can tell you after many years of self medicating and now over two years having a legal prescription, I’ve only experienced slight anxiety if my disease when up to quick. I currently prescribed 40g 25% THC Flos, 20% THC Flos, 19% THC Flos, 50mg CBD and 100mg/1ml THC oil for nighttime pain and insomnia.

    I use medicinal THC gummies to help me sleep, and some topical creams to help with pains or scars. I support the usage of cannabis, and I especially support small/craft growers. I also respect those who don't use cannabis, regardless of their reasoning, though I may try to educate.

    Find an experienced stoner to help you figure stuff out depending on where you are it is harder or difficult, my boyfriend is a stoner and cannabis has been my medication for pain since we started dating now it is literally a miracle drug for me

    I'm allergic to the flower so I can't smoke it but I do have edibles to help me sleep. I find it helpful but I try not to do it on work nights since I'm a bit sluggish in the morning.

    I find it helps me in a variety of ways--from daily energy and depression help to sleep.

  • QueenChronic

    CBD and THC have helped me with fibromyalgia and anxiety more than anything else I’ve tried. I used to live in constant fear because I didn’t have access to it legally, but now thanks to the farm bill I can order what I need online (I’m in GA and I order from Extract Labs) and I am so grateful. My main concern now is that I want to have children in the next few years and I’m not sure what can be used during pregnancy 😔

  • poodlelover28

    Cartridges are what helps me sleep. A good hybrid will let me enjoy the high for a bit and then pass out but still wear off and wake up on time the next morning.

  • AutisticMama

    My partner has a disability called Charcot Maire Tooth. He uses it to slow his head down and to help with the pain. The best thing I can say is to make sure you're in the right mindset. If you're not, it can cause anxiety or paranoia. Xx

    I've heard a lot of people say they didn't feel it their first time. Didn't happen to me, but I do hear this from many people.

    Used to smoke a lot to get through the day but I’ve found other hobbies that do it for the most part. Still miss it and want to be in that calm state again but I couldn’t do that to my family. I was so detached I wasn’t me.

  • WhoKnows

    I recommend the book Brave New Weed. Try just a little bit and see how you feel. Different amounts can produce opposite effects (like relieving nausea or making you vomit, calming anxiety or causing paranoia)

  • Denotchka

    Make sure you get legal CBD. There’s a lot of stuff out there and I suggest that you do your homework before just buying something. You want low THC and nothing to make you feel high or anything. Also check and see who has the best products available for the public.

    Has anyone in this chat ever actually USED cannabis or majuana themselves, besides myself?

  • Picklelover21

    Disclaimer *Where I live it is legal to smoke cannabis* I smoke everyday and it helps me so much. If your new I would try smoking a pipe or a bowl. Hold off on the bongs until you know your air control. I would also wait on gummies since they have to digest first you could take one and not feel it for a couple of hours. I would suggest you get your cannabis from someone you trust with your life or a green house. Find a designated place where you can smoke. It should be a very relaxing place and you should be able to sit down with peace and quiet. I love torches but you can use a lighter if you want. Torches just give you more control! Good luck! And I’m always here to talk if you need it💜

    I love cannabis when I do it correctly. I find myself some flower or a vape with high CBD levels with the THC to level it all out. Too much THC without CBD for me makes me paranoid.

  • luv2mypuppers

    I have used it for fibro pain and it didn't take the pain away. 😥

  • Placebo1228

    Yeah. Be aware that CBD and cannabis can make you irritable. Idk why but every time I take a little CBD oil for my migraines it makes me so angry... Thc, however, chills me out.

  • Freed_Spirit

    I used to use cannabis for my depression and to help with my anger issues. It turns out that it eventually made my diagnosis worse. I ended up in jail due to having a bad counter action between marijuana and klonopin. I broke into a family members home and scared the hell out of them. Would recommend with the right medication. You just have to know your body. Nobody else knows you more than yourself

  • LynnKenzie

    I use CBD instead. It helps me.

    Makes me paranoid and I got depersonalization/derealization for a few days after from it. Not again

  • HimboCollective

    Main way of treating things for me, best tip I can give is start small and work up, tinctures provide the most accurate dosing, edibles provide stronger effects, and good ol smoking provides the fastest effects

    Cannabis is great! I live in a state where it's illegal to smoke it recreationally but there's at least Delta 8 products that mimic weed to get me by.

  • NurseyPA

    19d

    Yes! It helps me more than any anxiety meds I've ever tried. And if you Don't enjoy smoking You can vape it or there are many different forms of edibles out there. It's illegal where I live, but I continue to do it because it's the only thing that really works for me and I'm willing to take that chance.

  • Jai

    I've tried CBD which is the same.plant but not full on cannabis. For some it works and for others not so much. For me nope. I felt no effect

  • EliteLexy

    18d

    Yes. Start low and go slow. Also, if using cartridges, use them minimally as they will wreck your tolerance.

  • Eeeds

    18d

    Try to find a product with a fair bit of CBD in it too (1/1 or 2/1 THC to CBD is good) and take standardised amounts at certain times, same as you would any other medication. How long between doses depends on both you and your consumption method, there will be some trial and error but you don't want to use it casually if you want it for medical reasons. Make sure you have a sugary drink & snack to hand in case you start to feel dizzy or lightheaded, that you're somewhere you can lie down, the rest of your day is free, and let someone know what you're doing (or get them to come hang out) just in case.

    We use cannabis every day. It helps us function better, deal with emotional issues, eat, sleep, live.

  • Pinkdreamer

    I was resistant at first because of the psychoactive effects, but in desperation I tried it and it helped so much. I use Rick Simpson oil. It's very effective, and was invented by a man with cancer to treat his cancer. I buy little capsules and put the oil into the capsules and swallow them so I won't have to taste it.

  • Pinkdreamer

    17d

    I want to add that I either use an indica or indica-dominant hybrid, because I prefer the calming effect.

  • ShannonCC

    I use the Cherry Pie strain for pain and anxiety. Definitely adds to the quality of my life.

  • teiovex

    I use THC edibles (mostly gummies) for gastroparesis and digestive health. it eases my anxiety as well which is an added bonus haha. I also use tinctures if I’m using it in my feeding tube. I don’t like smoking and I believe digestion is a healthier way to use, but whatever works for you is what matters and I encourage you to use it safely either way!

    • teiovex

      15d

      also remember that THC isn’t mandatory! CBD just didn’t work for me. I also love all the advice in this comment section and hope you follow it. these thing affect everybody differently and there’s also research you can do.

  • Aaronb03

    I microdose edibles to help manage pain, and have found that 7-12 mg is enough to help my body but not get me high

  • Fates

    14d

    I take about 25mg of delta 8 to deal with my pain but not be too high to get things done. It has worked wonder because over the counter pain killers were not helping at all

  • cleom

    ‼️PLEASE READ‼️please be aware of something called cannabinoid hyperemesis syndrome (CHS) its a condition that leads to repeated and severe episodes of vomiting and absolutely debilitating stomach pains. it occurs when you smoke any form of thc daily. it completely destroyed my life and had me sick to the point that i almost died. symptoms can include sweating, cold sweats, chills, headaches, dizziness, nausea, vomiting, inability to keep food down, stomach pain and more. please message me if you’d like to hear more information.

  • JaimeJ

    I use thc gummies and found I only need 1/4 of one to get rid of the pain and not feel high. I also use sativa ones during the day and indica at night. I take 1/4 (2.5mg) twice a day. Sometimes times.

    • everythingbagelstan

      13d

      how does sativa during the day feel for you? i’ve wanted to try it but i don’t want it to get in the way of my responsibility as a student

  • everythingbagelstan

    13d

    i’m about to try THC balms for pain and i’ll update this when i do! i also agree with starting slow - using only what you need. using too much at once can have other side effects that make pain relief harder. sometimes when i use too much it can trigger my migraines and chronic cough, but when i use just the right amount I feel joint pain relief. that’s why i want to try the transdermal thc balms since that shouldn’t mess with my migraines !!

  • catdad22

    CBD topicals help me. I‘ve tried CBD gummies and capsules, but they haven’t done as much for me. Some part of me feels like I haven’t found the specifically right thing edible-type thing since CBD has helped in some way, but who knows.

  • SoxyWoxy

    13d

    Just be aware: you can be allergic to it just like anything else. I am and it sucks. Any amount of thc (even the miniscule amounts in cbd products) causes vomiting and seizure like activity for me. So start small and really pay attention to how you feel. Don't just go all in at once.

  • Luluby

    I have n it was not for me. After a while it no longer felt good to me. The smell became too much till I hated it. I also did research it n it isn't beneficial to smoke it.

    • HocusFocus

      13d

      bull crap. That's not even true

  • HocusFocus

    I have. I use it all the time but it definitely matters on the strands and where you get it.

  • FairyPrincesss

    Smoking a bow currently lol I have been having trouble getting meds so I've definitely hit the pipe more than normal and it's keeping me a lot closer to level than I would be without it. I've smoked off and on since I was 14 (I'm 40 now) and it's the main thing that keeps me calmer and on more of an even keel. It makes my brain function a bit more like normal and keeps some of the demons away. Definitely start small. If it's not legal in your area ask a friend if they have a good dealer. The biggest thing is being safe if you are going to get pre rolled. They can lace it with things. Most places WONT because hello that's money out of their pocket but always safety first.
