Johnny O is right in pretty much every aspect... Thanks for being a great source of truth and enlightenment.. I'm actually not too far from you.. we should link up sometime!
It's been a while since i've posted, i've been dealing with two pesky fistulas that have thread setons in them. I am currently taking Humira on a test run and i've come to the conclusion that I will be slowly tapering off and kicking it to the curb. As always I will keep everyone informed... a
Adding medical Cannabis in your treatment is different for everyone.. But you soon build up your CBD and other beneficial chemicals and then results are usually seen.. Just as everyone has different taste buds and preferences you will need to find the one best for you..
I also have the luxury of trying multiple strains to find the one ( or ones ) that suit me well. I have my heavy medicine for nights and those days i'm in more pain and don't have much going on.. and I have others that leave me craving activity like hiking or hitting the water... There are some that even enhance focus.. which actually help tremendously while doing tedious computer programming strokes or other things of that nature.. You just need to find what suits your needs.. I mostly smoke flower through a water pipe because I like it the way nature gave it to me... but sometimes I will indulge in making canna-lard (or butter) and making some tasty treats as well as other tested oils or concentrates..
Diet is everything as well guys... Drinking WATER... is something that has seem to have gotten lost among most of us. Stay with water.. keep it on you all the time.. and if you're going to drink juice keep it 100% (ie OJ..AJ... ) Add greens to the diet... more and more greens.. Grass-fed beef ( there's constantly evidence showing a large difference in the quality of fat being produced ) Staying away from GMO produce and other foods that are highly processed.. full of complex (empty) sugars.. and laced with chemicals.. and the most important... Yoghurt... Oh the beneficial Lactobili.. Make your own yoghurt and ferment it for 24+ hours..
Check out "breaking the vicious cycle" for more on that.. but the imbalance of gut bacteria and the attack on the microbiome through our diet... chemicals.. air.. are doing a number on our immune system (which is technically made up of these bacterias) Repopulating your gut with the good guys is something I do on the daily basis. Do not be tricked by the store produced yoghurt.. stuff is terrible..
There is a lot of misinformation out there so the best way to find the truth.. (or closest to the truth) is to do the research yourself! I've learned everything I know from other like minded individuals as well as public articles and studies found ( through HOURS of googling)
Growing your own medication is most definitely the best way to go.. You have control over what you feed it.. the care it gets.. as well as the harvest techniques.. It's also self gratifying when you get to see your baby grow from a tiny munchkin to a full blooming female... (I am just as proud of my tomatoes and peppers on the porch!... I promise...) and who DOESN'T want to play in the dirt... ok... that may just be me.. but seriously..
Same goes for making Cannabutter or other oils as well (or as I make... Canna-Lard.. from local pasture raised piggies
Just be sure to always follow proper, safe techniques.
Anyways.. I've rambled on enough..
