    You can feel it easily with some THC as a carrier.

    Medical marijuana that has a higher CBD concentration is used more for physical pain, anxiety etc. Marijuana that has a higher THC concentrate will give you more of that “high” or “buzz’ feeling. Using a vaporizer or vape device will get the marijuana directly into your system within minutes. Taking opioid pills takes longer and has some unfortunate side effects.

    There is a difference between CDB oil from the whole cannibis plant and that from hemp. Know what you are getting. I have used the former as both a tincture and balm and got quick relief from chronic pain.

    Actually, I was told that if you're on high blood pressure meds it can be harmful. Sounds like Dr.Oz snake oil.

    I've developed arthritis and all sorts of other minor things that, when taken as a whole, are slightly debilitating. Painful. Annoying. Ibuprofen. Believe me, if I could indulge in some smoke I would but it just isn't in the cards right now.

    And don't forget about that box you have to answer NO to on the yellow federal form when you purchase a firearm.

    You are correct. That's the main reason I've hesitated over 12+ months. I've researched it until I was blue in the face and the bottom line is there is no THC in it - if it were - it couldn't be legal and sold at stores, gas stations, etc. If one was trying to go the route of wanting a product with the THC - they'd have to apply for a Medical Mar. License and go through that system (or do the thing folks have been doing for the last 50 years and just buying it off the street). But I've never smoked ANYTHING in my life and at 47 don't plan on starting. And maybe the CBD oil will be bunk - but it seems like I've read 100's of stories in newspapers, blogs, Reddit, etc. of how it seemed to almost be a miracle drug. So it seems like a regular tincture bottle of the stuff (of the smaller potency) is about $60 in many stores & online. But that place I found that offers the 60% military discount/veterans discount has it for $12. $17 w/ shipping. So I'd rather it try it that way then loading up on the little bottles that are $60, $110 or $200.

    And thank you for the heads up on the blood pressure meds. Fortunately at this point - I don't need them :)

    In order to get into the Medical Marijuana system you do have to jump through some hoops. Because the Federal government still sees marijuana as illegal, you have states running the system. All marijuana purchases are cash only, no credit cards. Also, you may not own firearms and use legal pot. It’s all so much government BS to be sure.

    There is normally a laundry list of ailments that qualify you for MM. Once a doctor approves you to buy pot, you need to get a ID card from your state. Then you can go to a store to make your purchases. Once at the store the salesperson will be able to guide you to the proper strain that you should be using.

    The dispensary where I live is limited to medical marijuana. You can pay a small fee for a doctor's note and get full plant cdb infused balm, tinctures, or other products from them. You do not need a state card, but there is a discount on taxes if you have one.

    However, if you drive down the road to a recreational use business, you do not need the note. Both places give good advice about what to get - with recreational use now permitted under my state's law, some doctors undoubtedly will lose a lucrative side business in issuing notes after a patient fills out an online form.

    States vary of course. Before her death my mother finally was willing to try medical marijuana after my evangelical cousin signed off on it, but she could not get through the paperwork.

    In any event, know what you are getting. The larger bottles advertised as hemp oil may not be very hempy.

    As to the full plant, I have read that a vape device might be a little healthier than smoke. But it's been a long time since I tried that. The last time someone tried to sell me products on the street, or on a dirt road going to a back woods cabin, I thought they were talking about roofing materials.
