I jumped because I am passionate about all things cannabis, and have a "thing" for bad information/, and I only rediscovered it 5 yrs ago. Back in the day, we had no idea that it could be good for anything except fun.
I was astonished when Nevada legalized recreationally in 2016. Prior to that it was a total hassle to even get an MMJ card (MMJ was legalized in 2012). There were roadblocks everywhere when I tried and a six month wait.
I had abstained for over 35 yrs to protect a high paying job in the gaming industry. After retirement, I had to be put on a regimen of opioids by my doctor (10 yrs worth) for 24x7 pain. They barely took the edge off my pain and eventually would have killed me. A side benefit is that I sleep like a kid again...I kid you not.
I discovered the medicinal benefits of cannabis quite by accident, after I was able to purchase Cannabis products legally. After 30 days I was able to dump the opioids and never looked back. Afterwards, I realized that this new medicine was pretty easy to grow myself and saved a fortune.
I usually grow indoors since the plant is more easily controlled in a grow tent. Aside from the medical value, growing has been great therapy as well.
I had one dogs whose life was extended by 6 months after giving up on prescribed meds, and I tried dispensary CBD as a last resort. Alas, nothing can cure old age, but she did very well those last 6 months.
If testing wer not so expensive, I would definitely be growing CBD rich plants for future use with my dogs.
I have the seeds on hand as well. CBD has become so profitable that many cannabis seed banks give them away with a regular seed order. Otherwise I would not have bought any CBD strain seeds.
. One problem is the existence of false information that proliferates the net. It is wise to get as many sources as possible before making a decision. Since the FDA has effectively banned all things cannabis (except their own), studies in the USA have ground to a halt in favor of the drug companies doing their thing overseas..Like South America and Israel for example
I can't wrap my head around the schedule one designation ("having no medicinal value") yet their own a patent on the very same thing. This is why I find the FDA's position so abhorrent, since their own patent was issued in 2003
One of my favorite strains grown indoors.
