jump_mama_jump, I really LOVE my vaporizor. You don't get a lingering smell, the kids don't breath second hand smoke, AND you can vaporize stems and all.

I wouldn't want to expose my dd to the 2nd hand smoke. we go to the basement or attic, and i do it very rarely - pretty much just for pms/cramps/etc, when she's napping. we've had to ban joints from the basement since i'll smell them upstairs, but the attic is vented so it's fine up there. i haven't done more than a tiny bit here n there for a long time anyway.
is anyone afraid that the DARE program will encourage kids to tell their teachers? my dd is nowhere near that old yet but it's a concern anyway. Am i just being paranoid? Has anyone heard of this actually happening?
yes. trichomes are the small crystals that form on mature buds.
they go from clear, to milky white, then to amber.
clear: not mature, will get you high, but very shortlived.
all milky: height of maturity, very cerebral high, more energetic high (this also depends on strain though)
1/2 milky and 1/2 amber: a heady high that you also feel as relaxation in the body.
all amber: what i've heard others call "couch-lock" all amber is a very physical, relaxing high. how dopey/tired you feel in addition to this relaxation all has to do with strain.
get a magnifying glass used to look at bugs or coins. with at least 24x magnification. you can see the trichomes (crystals) without the magnifier, but you can't tell their color without one.
MJ has been a loved resource for me as a woman and mother. It has stopped more than one rage outburst in its tracks, as well as quelling anxiety. Me too Its like my daily return to the earth. Oh how I love tending my garden after a lovely breath of herbal remedy! I am also a clean-the-house-with-MJ person. With the right strain, it can really boost you! I also do lots of creative writing and art. I've got two little boys, I've never hid it from them. I also vaporized all through both pregnancies and while nursing. Oh how it helped with let-down issues while nursing! Also with morning sickness and appetite issues during pregnancy. Here on Guam, a senator just introduced bill 420, to legalize medical marijuana. I'm going to do all I can to help get the word out!
i completely agree about the 2nd hand smoke. and like you, the only time i partake is if she's sleeping or hubby is home and i can slip away for a few mins. i've personally never really liked vapes, but my opinion might change eventually.
on the DARE program, i know we've talked about it before maybe a few months back. i would no let my child go through the program, it's all propaganda lies. i remember when i was in 5th grade and my mother signed me up for it, and they would ask things like 'raise your hand if your mom/dad smokes'. i wouldn't let a dc go, or just call my dd in sick that day.
but we are probably home schooling anyway, so i really don't worry about it.
i've been so busy here mamas! we've been dry for quite a while, dh decided not to take the chess teacher position he was offered, he's been talking about doing it for over 2 years and it's just not doable because we live so far on the outskirts of phoenix. he's been expecting to get a job where he'd have to pass a drug test, but nothing that good has come up.
otherwise, i just stopped in to say 'hi'! i'm still around but don't get to post much. i feel like i'm always working or entertaining dd. i've been having some anxiety and have been a little on edge lately and hope to get a stash in soon.
we know a couple who has told their children that telling people about the MJ use will put mommy and daddy in jail, and separate them to go live with strangers.
like really tried to scare the crap out of their kids. and it seems to be working, but i'm not sure if I would want to go that route. I'm glad to hear that you know people who didn't go that route that it worked out for.
I guess it just really depends on the kid and the age of the kids. I believe their kids are 11, 8 and 4.
Mine is on its way too!! I have been blessed with love & light
Have you done any research on using it yet? I've seen a few videos on youtube, but I wonder how high or low to set it. I saw one video where I could swear the guy was smoking! It must have been set at a really high temp. I do NOT want to burn my herbs! I heard that burning wastes it faster. Anyone have any tips for us first timers?
How high do you set your vape? Is it a digital unit? What tips can you share?
