    Yep, the kinds of oil you mix it may well have their own benefits. But as long as folks remember that CBD has enormous medical potential and this is not ALL hype (which the article did state clearly.)
  3. Well that was the surprising thing. It was thought that relief with Crohn's was due to anti-inflammatory effects of cannabis. But this study (and Israel is no slouch when it comes to cannabis medical research) didn't show reduction in inflammation as measured by endoscope as well as by inflammatory markers in blood and stool samples (presumably fecal calprotectin).

    Despite It's known effectiveness for many medical conditions, CBD has become an over-the-top fad. And that is only the tip of the iceberg. https://www.seattletimes.com/explore/shop-northwest/a-cure-for-our-times-why-cbd-is-everywhere/
  5. Haven't seen it posted here, but this is quite interesting: Up till now it was thought that cannabis worked for many Crohn's patients (and presumably other IBD conditions) because it reduced inflammation. Here is the article with references: https://medicalxpress.com/news/2018-10-cannabis-symptoms-crohn-disease-effect.html

    Cannatonic 4

    Read what I said again. I didn't call you irresponsible. I said it would be irresponsible to distribute a strain to folks who want high CBD unless it tested as such.

    Cannatonic 4

    I wouldn't bill it as Cannatonic if you only "think" it is, and most certainly you shouldn't distribute it to folks who want a high CBD product (for Parkinson's, epilepsy, Crohn's, etc) unless you have it tested. To do otherwise would be irresponsible.
  8. NY Times article: https://www.nytimes.com/2018/10/15/world/canada/marijuana-canada-legalization.html Biggest takeaway: black market cannabis is way cheaper (by almost 1/2) than licensed cannabis which requires voluminous paperwork, taxes and reams of environmental regulations. Tax revenues are much lower than expected.

    Do caregivers provide an allowance?

    So you agree that there are "good dispensaries" with "great cannabis". Not at all what you said earlier about how they all have watered down strains...

    Do caregivers provide an allowance?

    What are these "watered down strains" that "all" of these dispensaries are carrying (and why are so many folks therefore growing them)? I don't doubt that you grow excellent herb, but I have had few complaints with the many products I've purchased from dispensaries over the years. Certainly there is no way that any caregiver can compete with the sheer variety of items - whether flower, or concentrates, or edibles - found at even the most modest place.

    Do caregivers provide an allowance?

    Assuming most of the "excess" grow is being sold to dispensaries, I don't understand how Michigan caregivers can break even - much less make a little profit - with the prices of herb being so low...
  12. Yeah, that's the thing, they DIDN'T define what abuse was. Since they have to rely on self reported info with such a study, I would have thought that would at least have recorded things like frequency over time, be it cannabis or alcohol (the latter which we KNOW can cause irresponsible brain damage). Very strange report... Edit: typo, but I sorta like "irresponsible" brain damage
  13. Yer not gonna like this one... https://www.iospress.nl/ios_news/largest-brain-study-of-62454-scans-identifies-drivers-of-brain-aging/ The full article (thanks to sci-hub) mentions "cannabis use disorder" but I don't know what the "How often and for how long" criteria are other than the general info that wikipedia says on it https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cannabis_use_disorder
  14. I'm not a doctor nor do I play one on TV but I will say: do NOT inhale combusted plant material when you are pregnant. There is nothing "magic" about cannabis smoke - it has toxins like any other burning plant. http://www.canorml.org/healthfacts/Second-Study-Shows-Vaporizers-Drastically-Reduce-Toxins-in-Marijuana-Smoke

    Differences between these concentrates

    Yeah, I was surprised at how thin the stuff was. Please note I spoke with him and he is more circumspect. Says "he thinks it is more potent". Saw a FlavRX review that said up to 90% THC, however it is not so labeled on the packaging and I kinda doubt that number. I used to get the syringes to fill my vape, but it is SO much less a hassle & mess to buy pre-filled carts, & no more dealing with coils. And no cost premium. There's a tradeoff, for sure, in the quality of the cart itself, but that's a tradeoff I'm willing to make. If it sits for a bit and gets thick, I just blast it for a minute with a hair dryer.
