    How can you describe(and/or define) the difference between asacol and Humira by its anti inflammatory effects ? Replace marijuana/cannabis with all the other drugs you are on in your above questioning. Can you answer those questions?

    The DEA has obstructed legitimate research on cannabis for decades. They are currently reviewing the current Schedule 1 (no medical value, same class as heroin and LSD). If you have time to wait for studies then wait. I personally experiment on myself and live in a state that allows this herb to...

    Are you a scientist? I believe your questions are beyond the scope of this thread. Also, if it helps, who cares why or how?

    So true. I was a junkie zombie on oxys. Even a Vicodin nowadays renders me useless and sick for hours. Vicodin whacks my head way more than cannabis. Also, after 20 years of daily use, my mind is sharper than ever!

    I smoke so much I should be dead or retarded but sadly neither is the case. Sure cannabis has side effects. The noticeable side effects are maybe half that of alcohol. Cannabis didn't turn Carl Sagan into a retard either. Or Steve Jobs, or President Obama, or Richard Branson..

    If you cannot make RSO oil make cannabutter using a long cook at low temps. Then make brownies. It's old school but works. The most important thing is using an Indica with high THC and at least some CBD.

    I have taken more than a grain of rice. I can't really answer your question as it depends on the strain of Cannabis, the final preparation and potency, and individual weight and tolerance. I have been doing dabs at home and vape pen when unable to dab. My lungs are Much happier now. I enjoy...

    Like all medication with side effects, after a few times you get used to the effects. Forbes just ran an article that it's easier to die from drinking too much water than smoking too much cannabis, so don't be afraid. Just don't do too much. A little will take away pain nausea anxiety insomnia...

    Grain of rice if eating, 1/4 of a tic tac size (or less) for dabbing. Also be super carefull and make it outdoors depending on method.

    No sleep, no recovery. Do whatever it takes to restore proper sleep. Dabs are a form of vaporization. It's more a technique than type of cannabis. You can also use concentrates in a micro gpen type vaporizer. I prefer this to smoking raw herbs as you need to intake much less smoke and there is...

    DABS are my favorite! They are so powerful I have to be seated and need a few minutes to adjust to the effects before going on about my day. I like the precision of dosing with dabs or vaping vs edibles. Edibles last much longer and are harder to dial in a dose that is effective but not too strong.

    I try to dab a 1/4 of a tic tac sized wax at a time. The beauty of cannabis is that of you start developing a tolerance then it's working. Up the dose. I have been trying to kill myself with cannabis for over 20 years and it's impossible. Also, you do not have to worry about an unbearable...
