Summer MJ/Cannabis Mamas!! - Page 4

post #61 of 509
Yeah that!

I've been thinking about it in a whole new way. First, I have been thinking, "How little do I need?" I've been consciously cutting my dose way back. Which means I am dealing with the OCD a lot more, but it's okay. I realize that I only need like a teeny tiny amt for medicine, which is a good feeling. I find that it's important to give her time to herself when I am not calling on her so that when she sees me we can share the things we have been through since we last talked.

Also, I've been thinking about it as a pro-active herb that strengthens the mind and spirit. Ever since someone posted about how it helps stroke sufferers regain use of their brain something clicked about how helpful this herb is in modern society.

tat-not only did I use it during my pregnancy, I used it during labor. We were hanging out chillin like we sometimes do....(or did back then :/ LOL) and that was the night I went into labor. It was an amazing experience - my best birth, and I didnt really know I was in labor because the MJ was working on the pain so well. (Hence my midwife barely made it to the birth. LOL)

I have found the godsend of all cleaners and I am SOOOOO Happy that I did.... It cut my cleaning time by 30 mins... Like wow I didn't have to spend all night in my bathroom scrubbing my toilet and bathtub like i normally do and I also didn't feel lightheaded from the fumes because there were none. Melalueca is my newest bestfriend.

So our room is getting ready to be refilled : I love that this plant takes such good use of its soil that we can reuse . we started a compost / worm farm but its missing the worms I have no idea where to buy a pound of worms - my thoughts were the farmers store by my moms house - since they sell all chicken feed and what not but they told me to try a bait shophing if I wanted worms - but I dont know if fishermen use the same kind of worms . I love to have an organic grow:

We have a worm farm here in Tucson that ships everywhere! You might have to wait until the weather cools down, or maybe not.

interesting - I keep wondering how the fact that mj relaxes you (which should help supply) conflicts with studies that it lowers prolactin and thus would lower supply (though i think they were all animal studies so who knows, but still). also since the more i read about the more i am convinced that it balances you out so that whatever is too high or too low is improved, i've wondered if that would actually up prolactin in a nursing mom since your body is demanding it. or even if different strains have different effects. interesting stuff!

Can you throw up from having too much mj?
Being that early in the pregnancy, I would attribute it to a generally fickle stomach (that's a lot of totally different kinds of foods, it would have made me feel icky atleast) but depending on the high you were getting, I would say the MJ could have something to do with it too. If it was making you feel a little dizzy that would probably do it.

durning my MJ pregnacy I threw up constintly ( with and with out the aid of MJ ) but eating it made dizzier which resulted in vomiting - again tho most things resulted in vomitting durning that PG . MJ convinced me to eat which is why I endured smoking it. but the light headedness that caused MS was also a result of my blood sugar droping so there was a learning curve I had to deal with on how to do small enough snacks when the munchys hit but not so small my BS dropped I was not a fun PG women

Been gone awhile...

Just wanted to shout out a hello to all you MJ Mommas out there! It's been forever since I last joined you, probably over a year in fact but I've ocassionally read posts and mostly I've been busy living and working and raising the kids... and of course, enjoying my green therapy.

Unfortunately, I recently moved to another state and although it's lovely where I live, it's also been impossible to find a connection here and I've had to go cold turkey for an unknown amount of time. It sucks!!! No medicine works as well as mj for my anxiety and mild depression and for relaxation and creativity and even sprituality!

But... it's part of the whole legal issues behind this wonderful plant. It's too bad, I happen to now live in FL which is imo very conservative.... I have yet to find a way to obtain it.

Does anyone know what the status for medical mj is here? It seems everyone in South Beach is high all the time but since I don't really hang out or know many people... I feel like years away from enjoying it again...boo hoo!

Ok, enough venting! Nice to read you ladies, most of you for the first time I'm sure.

Hi ladies, I've misssed you all!!!

Hey everyone!! I've been lost it seems for a couple of months - a long couple of months, I might add =( I was all set to move to Arizona, but the job offer we were counting on for DH fizzled out =( Thank goodness for green : it has helped me through the craziness lately. On the bright side, we rented a pretty nice townhouse style apartment that's in a excellent school district, so it could be worse.... But I am going to be CRANKY this winter :

So I just wanted to drop in & say hey I miss you guys!
post #76 of 509

oops! almost forgot...

Oh! By the way, would anyone be willing to share links to info about vaporizers or other means of using mj?? Living in an apartment/townhouse complex has me worried a bit... I'm not used to peole on either side of me, at least no neighbors above or below =) I also don't have much left, and I need to make it last without cutting too far back. I wish I was brave enough to grow a little, I've heard about people growing in a large rubbermaid container or something... Any ideas?? Thnx!!

That sounds like such a royal pain in the ass! And miserable. Glad you're through it, mama, hope next time (if there is one planned) is easier.

What's on the 25th??

Hey mamas! Hope everyone is well.
Tomorrow my little boy starts kindergarten at public school. Its not my ideal choice, but I think he will do well with the structure. On tuesday I sign my dd up for public preschool, and I just can't wait until august to have some free time during the day for the first time in 6 years!!

Dinahx.. not puffing... uh, um.. OH! Congrats!!!

Mamato lea.. we have some babies bdays coming up soon!!! I still havent planned a thing!

Maminatural.. I too have been gone a long while, but I remember you, sister!!

For those of you who have been following the thread for a few years, I was the one whose dh was arrested for having a car accident with our months' supply in the car.. he is now on probation and doing ok.. still having a hard time finding a job now that he has a felony, but he's thinking of going back to school soon, which I think would be great. He is still a pain in the butt though, and stuggle everyday wondering if I should stay together or not..

I'm dry right now, mostly cuz I'm broke, but to enjoy now and again when I have some extra dough.
