    Sticky Medical Marijuana for Crohn's Disease and Ulcerative Colitis

    ah, okay...i now know what a trichrome is! thank you. that makes sense about decarbing the oil and not the bud. i assume i can do the same thing with a canna-oil? i'm still in total shock about how much ingesting mmj is helping me. i have _no doubt_ that i'd be on steroids again if it weren't...

    Sticky Medical Marijuana for Crohn's Disease and Ulcerative Colitis

    okay...wow...the RSO is SO much more effective now that i've been decarbing it. it makes me a little high, for one thing, which is great as long as i don't overdo it. it's actually relieving the abdominal pain and pressure. when it wears off the pain and pressure starts to come back a little and...

    Sticky Medical Marijuana for Crohn's Disease and Ulcerative Colitis

    thanks ce1210...i'm actually starting to think that my RSO didn't get decarbed. i evaporated the everclear in a pan over a crock pot and never even got the alcohol to its boiling point. i'll decarb it in some oil as you suggest. last night i found this guy on youtube named chef derek butt (i...

    Does cooking with the RSO make it stronger? Did you actually put it in your food? Yeah, I think cooking with only known sources is really smart...

    that's good to know...i'd love to wean off entocort too but i'm not going to rush it. i'm going to stay on the LDN. if it works it would be cheaper than the RSO in the long run unless i can get into a situation where i can grow my own. the extraction process went fine, pretty easy. i processed...

    Thanks so much JohnnyO and ce1210 for your help and input. I made RSO this weekend and I've been taking a tiny bit w breakfast, lunch, and dinner. My last dose of Cimzia is set to wear off in the next day or two so it's wait-and-see at this point. ce1210, are you still on the LDN? I just...

    Sticky Medical Marijuana for Crohn's Disease and Ulcerative Colitis

    Hi All! After failing on all the Crohn's drugs, I've come to the end of my pharmaceutical options. (Except for Tysabri and I don't want a devastating brain disease thank you very much.) I'm going to make a small batch of RSO this weekend and I was wondering what your personal experiences with...

    Success on Cimzia after REMI and HUMI failed?

    Hello! Anyone out there have success on Cimzia after failing on Remicade and Humira? Remicade was a miracle drug for me, but I became allergic to it after two years. Switched to Humira, which helped my guts but caused severe joint pain, muscle pain, and fatigue; had to go off of it after two...
