  1. Thanks everyone for the responses. My procedure is at 5:45 a.m. Monday so I'll just not use that night. Now I wish I had just said 'no' when asked about mmj. Next time....
  2. Next Monday I'm going in for a minor surgical procedure. The doc told me it's a 10 minute procedure done here at their clinic under a local anesthetic, but my insurance company insists that I drive an hour to Saginaw and have it done under anesthesia (just sedation or totally out I don't know) in a hospital. I spoke with a nurse there today and they say I have to stop mmj for 72 hours before this. That doesn't work for me since I need it daily for pain and insomnia. I can take norco occasionally but not for 4 days straight, though I can hold off the mmj the night before. I told her ok but now I'm not sure what to do. Does anyone know if using mmj 24 hours in advance of anesthesia can cause a problem? I'm assuming they're just being extra careful, but if there is a real danger here I need to know that. Thanks!
  3. Looks to me like ph fluctuation. Check this out... http://www.growweedeasy.com/ph-fluctuations-cannabis
  4. BB Kush has become one of my favorites, but so far I haven't been able to figure out how to grow it properly. Every other strain in my garden does well, except the BBK. I've grown it in soil (promix and Happy Frog in veg and promix and Organicare Bloom in flower) and am now trying it in hydro. For some reason it's always unhealthy, grows slowly, and gets root rot very easily (in hydro). What I need to know is what is different about this strain in terms of growing it? The only thing I've discovered so far is that it is a very light feeder. Cutting back the nutes helped that, but it has other problems I can't identify. Has anyone here successfully grown this strain? Does it require a ph that is different from other strains? Is it unique in it's temp or humidity needs? The only info I can find on the net says it is moderately difficult to difficult to grow, but nowhere does it say why or what to do to grow it successfully. This is a great late-night medicinal strain for me, so any help would be appreciated.
  5. I don't see how smoking can be made less irritating to the throat and lungs. Have you tried vaporizing bud or a concentrate? Vaping is the way to go if you can't smoke. Or medibles, which are perfectly legal if you do it right... i.e. leave some bud or leaves in it. But when it comes to concentrates or medibles, in the privacy of your own house who's to know? BTW, congrats on quitting smoking!
  6. Zachw... I do vape almost exclusively (concentrates), but have never tried a high CBD strain. It would be nice to be able to medicate without too much of a buzz sometimes, but do high CBD strains work better for abdominal pain and nausea? If so I sure need to try one. Yeah, I don't think I'd be able to stick to any serious diet that replaces virtually everything I eat. I don't have an appetite anyway, and don't eat much as it is. But like I said, this isn't a food related illness. I'm currently seeing a therapist and have an appointment with a psychologist at U of M in a couple of weeks. Maybe they can straighten out this mess. I know you're not a doctor, but have you stayed at a Holiday Inn Express lately? If so, that's good enough for me. A warning to everyone... control your stress level. If you don't you can get physically sick, and then you're really in trouble.
  7. I recently had my sleep doctor tell me to go on a vegan diet. Problem is, this illness is neither caused nor cured by diet. It's cause is emotional or physical trauma. It causes the nerves within the gut to become sensitized, like your skin with a sunburn. With me it's emotional trauma caused by, among other things, a seven year marriage to a verbal and emotional abuser. BTW, I do have to watch what I eat. This illness is like having the flu, along with abdominal pain, 24/7. Sometimes I can function, sometimes I can't. I was just wondering if anyone else on here deals with it, and how. Mmj is a Godsend, but sometimes norco is my friend too. Anyone find any particular strain helpful for abdominal pain and a feeling of flu-like sickness?
  8. Has anyone here been diagnosed with Visceral Hypersensitivity Syndrome (hypersensitive gut)? If so, how do you deal with it?
  9. I'll be heading down to Ann Arbor from West Branch next month, and need to find an OG clone on the way. I looked on-line but most are in Detroit. Does anyone here know where I could pick up a clone without getting too far away from I-75 or US-23? Thanks!
  10. For those of you here who have grown these strains, I have some questions. I received a free Afghani seed from DInafem a while back from an order I placed. The first plant didn't turn out well but her clones did. However, there were few fully developed trichomes on the buds. Most of them just looked like little lumps on the buds and leaves. Yet pictures I've seen in reviews show plenty of trich coverage. The reviews also say it's a very potent strain, yet mine is fairly weak. So what's up with this? I got a couple White Widow clones from a guy some months back. The plants are small and don't yield much. I have two in veg that are two months old yet are half the size of other plants the same age, if not younger. Is this normal for WW? Also, is it normal for the effects of WW to be rather short-lived?
  11. The directions call for 5 lbs. per 100 sq. ft.. If I figure a depth of 6", that would be 5 lbs. per 50 cu. ft. Sound about right? GM... thanks for the info on your new plants. I'll keep an eye on it when I start re-using my soil. I suppose amending the soil will be a matter of trial and error.
  12. I read an article on this site from the Three Little Birds on recycling your soil. They said they add Greensand even though it takes months to work, because Promix becomes acidic with time. My problem is that the bag of Greensand only gives amounts in square footage of ground, and I need it in volume (cu. ft.). I called Espoma but they couldn't help me. Does anyone know how much to add to a given amount of recycled Promix?
  13. Thus the importance of competition in a free market. I can see congress taking action only if these companies have a monopoly on these drugs.
  14. I have an appointment at U of M Gastroenterology this Thursday. No one has been able to diagnose me yet so my doc is sending me there. Are they anti-mmj? I never talk to doctors about being a patient (though I sure wish I could) and I figured I'd do the same here, but it would be good to know one way or the other.
