I started vaping weed a while back ago and noticed that in a very short time, I'm almost back to my fighting weight and I haven't taken any xanax or Ativan since. So in my opinion this definitely has a positive affect. I'm still not sure about the oil curing cancer but. If it helps nausea, appetite and anxiety it's a winner.

The stuff I've been smoking doesn't seem to cause that paranoid feeling in fact totally opposite.

I totally concur.....I bought a good vape which is much easier on the lungs.....and it does take that edge off my nausea even better than the Zofran, and for sure it enhances my appetite.....it has made a big difference in tolerating poison they shove at me every other week.

Carmen, I've just been doing indica during the day one with a little lower thc. I think it's called northern lights. In the evening something with a little higher thc. There's so many different kinds. :shock:

Northern Lights is very good. Any kind of "Kush" is strong, but effective. California Orange Bud is a very nice choice.

There are so many. Basically, indica is stronger but saliva is more mellow. Indica is a more hearty, faster-maturing plant (4 months, more or less, from germination to harvest). Sativa strains take a bit longer to mature and generally yield less.

This is all information I gained from the web, you understand. You can learn all you need to know by visiting one or two dedicated websites.

So are you vaping oil? or just the weed in dry/raw form. I've been thinking about using some (not legal but could probably find some) but have been worried about being stoned too much. When do you use it? Has it helped in your appetite overall or just munchies sometime after? And..when's the party dude??? :)

I had thought about it but am fearful of going stark-raving mad and developing female breasts.

On another note: upon hearing of my new diagnosis of cancer, a friend of my wife offered to procure me some marijuana as she did this for her husband when he had cancer and it reportedly helped. I told her "yes" I would take her up on this and I need a 100 pounds of Columbian gold and would provide the Uhaul. All she would need to do would be drive to the pickup and drop off points. I haven't heard back from her.

Bev, I'm with brownbagger on the indica strains,you can find feminized seeds online. I've been liking the northern lights.


Ray, I'm just doing the dry buds. It's pretty easy to do during the day once you kind of build up a tolerance. My normal weight was around 160 I have been around 147 for the last year now all of the sudden I'm up to 156. My wife thinks I'm just eating more in general. It's worth a try for you Ray. Another jeff spicolli quote.

"Dude, I'm so wasted"

Belle, I'm using a pax vaporizer it's really different from smoking it doesn't taste bad or make you smell like smoke.

Behconsult, I see your point, I love female breasts butt not on me. I think you'll be ok.
