As effective as smarties my wife used to say. 9mg x3 daily.

Yet when she fell and cracked a rib and the ER doc gave her a prescription for percocet she took the absolute minimum dose he suggested, less often than he suggested and stopped sooner than suggested. (throwing that in for balance)

We had a constant flow of teenagers in our house and they probably knew the street value of those pills. I just got temptation out of the way.
I had a incident at work and had a bad neck injury and they gave 30mg tabs of morphine sulfate, apart from some initial nausea, it was a wonderful three months off work.

There were downsides though, thankfully Oink was fully covered insurance-wise

Sorry Danny, that is simply BS.

CBD and its potential benefits have been known for years. I think you need to correct your post #14 to read not low dose THC but - containing no THC. The difference is that CBD is a single isolated chemical extracted from marijuana dispensing with the other 70 plus identified chemicals including THC.

This research specifically discusses CBD, not "medical marijuana" (I find that term crass and misrepresentative btw). You were encouraging everyone to get their medical marijuana licences (thanks for that evidence based advice Dr Dr Danny ) with the whole contents of the plant. I can tell you now, the bulk of users of MM seem weirdly drawn to the psychoactive THC and the rest of the other harmful chemicals.

I wouldn't have huge horror in people using isolated/purified CBD, purification done by a licensed pharmaceutical company with chromatography evidence that that is all that is in the product, not produced by "The Bong Factory, High street, Nelson"

I read a couple of reports about these guys over several years leading up to this article while they were still developing it, and wondered why the synthetic wasn't up and running by now? Could it be a business issue and just costs too much?

Errm I probably wouldn't be the doc to approach
I love the way that calling it a "Medipen"makes it seem all "medically" scientific. I note that they emphasise that it is organic .. therefore must be healthy
I am really uncertain about the benefits/harms of vaping tbh and I was thinking that if CBD had a value then it would be topical only
20% doesn't sound particularly high strength- what is the other 80% ?? Part will be that wonderful pother panacea of all cures, coconut oil but what else?

I don't often see much from the National Post but this was on the local paper's website. The thing at the bottom with some rough stats from across the country is interesting, and the database thing works to find your town.

So Ontario is going to set up stores similar to that run by LCBO staff under the LCBO banner. Lots of unhappy pot shop owners this week I guess. Maybe they did all jump the gun a little

She's right, 150 stores might be enough for Toronto, but not for Ontario. Why didn't they just follow the Colorado model, too profitable?

I'd give my right nut to have a legal weed store here in Kamloops next July. It would be a licence to print money.

I was at a store in Vegas recently and there were queues out the door. Cash only.

I met Jodie Emery once, maybe 7 or 8 years ago and thought she was very nice but a bit loopy (as befits a zealous adherent to anything). I didn't realise who she was until years later when seeing her on the news.
