Figured I'd go ahead and post a poll and see how you guys and gals feel about cannabis. I myself haven't smoked it too much, but before I enlisted I partook maybe 5-10 times. I personally didn't enjoy the high too much, but the pain relief was amazing.

I've been on a few big pain killers throughout my day for issues related to service. They all make me feel too high, numb, and are very addictive. Marijuana has been a pain reliever that I've recently enjoyed. It has made me feel better than the pills. Those "legal" pills are addictive as ****, and have led to more problems than I'd like. After a long days work I personally would prefer smoking and going to sleep than drinking and taking these pain pills.

Anywho, what are your thoughts on marijuana? Should it be legal, medically only, or stay illegal?

so edibles have finally hit the markets here in the province... I've smoked a couple of cigarettes in my life and they were thoroughly unwholesome experiences. So, the appeal of smoking a joint is not at all interesting, but maybe this gummie or brownie or cookie or capsule thing is a better option?

If you are going to dabble with edibles there is some important differences. Unfortunately there isn't really good science behind it, but this article talks about the little we do know.


Also, some edibles are thc only. Without the terpines and CBD, the experience can be different as well. If you have access to the flower, you might want to consider making canni-butter if you can't find a good full spectrum option.

If you mix soy lecithin in there it will increase the potency by up to 5 times the amount. I don't know about baking with it but if you use coconut oil it'll increase the high over butter as well because it has a higher fat content.

If you've never eaten decarboxylated thc, I would think the last thing you want to try is cooking with it. I still, to this day, catch myself licking the spoon during cleanup and have had to fight off many heavy effects.

5mg is a very good baseline dose for food products, and is what I give to all of the first-time experiences who come through the door.
