nixnc, i didnt know it was a euro thing. I do it because it makes the spliff burn better and stay lit, it breaks the weed up if its really sticky and you use a wee bit less cannabis and increases the high

babymae09, i wouldnt worry to much if she's being a responsible grower. Its only a few plants so i would imagine it's easy to hide. She should be keeping it private and not telling nearly anyone, only because no risk is better than a little. Its a better risk you could say that she's growing her own meds than toying with pain meds for her fibro, help her and maybe you can get a few buds here and there

maminnatural, i agree, i use because of the spiritual properties, in fact, if im feeling sick or in pain, mj makes it worse, i feel it more intensely, i love personal meditation

katiedidbug, welcome and thanks for tagging along !

Attatchedtoelijah, good to have ya back. Its wonderful to hear the herb has been able to help you and your DH with your medical challenges, it must be so relieving that your can treat it naturally and with out legal consequences. Thank you for sharing your family dynamic with your DH's usage. I think your both on the right wavelength for sharing the right amount of info about it per maturity level, age, etc. I totally agree that now your DH and stepson have another thing to bond over, he does after all have the cool dad that smokes weed, thats awesome ! lol

Devaskyla, I say do what you can to start the card process, and I mean..is there anyone you know who might know someone who deals? I feel in my age group, nearly everyone smokes or knows someone who does so asking anyone isnt to much of a concern, but asking someone older than me..i feel id get a terrible reaction. Do alot of adults generally smoke? The older moms I know smoke, but my parents friends dont. Not sure, give it a go, just pop out and ask around, be careful of course. I find it a challenge to pick up now too, i only know one person, and he doesnt deal, he just smokes alot himself and will sell me a couple grams here and there

Does anyone have any recommendations for a vaporizer that is under $80 or just a bit above? I know the really good ones are a lot more expensive, but I can't swing that right now. I've seen some for $60, but would like recommendations before purchasing.

The first one i got was at a head shop that just opened so we got it for around 70. It worked well and then just stopped working about 4 months later and we had to go back and buy one for I think about 100 We're broke as a joke, but rationalized spending it bc you can double smoke your stuff and save money (the stuff that's left in the vap is stinky, but you can smoke it or bake w/it, therefor doubling it). I was still preggo at the time so it was very important to me not to inhale smoke.
I wish I could remember the brand that conked on me to steer you away from it...the ppl working at the shop should be very knowledgeable though. Normally you can talk them down in prices-almost always I've gotten my peices less than what they're listed for int he shop, maybe try a few places?

Speaking of smoke, funny story. My bro (who smokes) was working w/DH at a friends the other day. The friend lit a bowl and my brother had his newborn there and asked him not to smoke around her. Then he lit incense so SIL wouldn't smell it when she came. Ummm...pretty sure incense has more smoke than a little ole bowl

--Not that i smoke around DS, hence the vap

I have to say, as much as I love the good herb, the one thing that pisses me off is when people smoke in the immediate vicinity of children (especially small ones who can't really get away). It drives me CRAZY. I totally understand smoking while your kids are at home, but in a different room with a fan on, please. I'm absolutely sure it's healthier than being around cigarette smoke, but I really don't like the idea of smoking around someone who can't give informed consent. [/rant] I'm sure that's not what you were talking about, but it's a peeve.

I did get to pass a pipe with a few friends last weekend, but as usual I'm without any herb. Weak. I think this would be a great time to live on the other side of the country, where herb is less expensive and generally of better quality.

Not sure if you were referring to me since my little ones know... but my husband (and me on occasion) usually smokes in the kitchen at the stove with the hood going... Of course, the kids usually come into the kitchen while he is smoking sometimes but he always blows it straight up the hood and I'm okay with that... the cig smoke is ALWAYS outside though. I would have him do it outside too if I wasn't so worried about the cops that cruise through our neighborhood every 5-10 minutes, lol.

Thinking about hitting a nice bowl tonight with my sweety and eating some yummy Apple Cinnamon Coffee cake I just whipped up. Yummy!

hello... i'm a MJ lover and self medicator for years. i am newly pg (6+ weeks) and i have been feeling yucky after i smoke more than one toke. maybe it's paranoia, maybe it's just a batch that gives the 'noids but i'm just not sure if i am going to continue to smoke through the pg. we've been wanting to get a vaporizor but now that i'm thinking of cutting down (DP says she will/wants to with me) i'm not sure it's a smart investment... although, if i change my mind and want to partake in a postprandial session then i should have one, right?! anyway, i digress...

just wanted to join, i've been lurking a while. has anyone had a similar experience? anyone care to share good stories about partaking while in the first tri?

eilowny, no no i agree, it is still smoke, whether it's equivalent to a candle burning, or incense things like that no idea, but lets not hotbox our children lol

mmm homemade apple cinnamon coffee cake

welcome wehrli, congrats on your pregnancy, thats wonderful. It could be the strain if your feeling like poop after you smoke, A vap is a good idea in pregnancy if you can swing it. I smoked in my first tri, I was so stressed out, I hated my baby's father, we could barely be in the same room, I eventually moved far away and didnt feel the need to smoke as much, but I missed it. I smoked only a couple of times in each trimester, I never had morning sickness so I didnt need cannabis to help that, just for stress and happiness. I thought it was good, my babe reaches most of his milestones much sooner, very, very happy and content, social, interactive all that. He's a good boy I enjoyed it in pregnancy, feels wonderful to be pregnant with cannabis

Well, I managed to get some for dh to try. I mentioned it to some aquaintances and actually had 2 women say they could help me. I was just wondering if I got a deal, got overcharged or paid about normal. She asked for $20 & she gave me a baggie with not quite enough to cover the bottom. I don't know if that's enough description to get an idea how much she gave me?

Just desperately hoping it helps dh. And I think I will download the paperwork to start getting a card. He has 3 or 4 of the things that make you eligible, even without the not eating thing.

Hope it helps him! As for the price, it's hard to say with the description but sounds about right. If it was the good stuff (kind bud, chronic, whatever you want to call it) there'd be barely any for that, so it's prob almost a quater of shwag, which, if it is that much, is a good price. Just like anything, the more you get at once, the cheaper it gets. Sounds like you got a pretty good deal, though, or, at least, you didn't get ripped off.
Hopefully he'll get the card soon, it's too bad it takes a while, but good he has something that should tide him over so he doesn't starve.

So..umm..I feel really stupid, but we have no idea what the best thing to do with it is. Dh used to smoke back in England, but his friend & him would get weak tobacco & mix resin (apparently all his friend bought) with it & smoke it. I was around friends smoking a few times, but I never actually did it, so I'm completely clueless. We have some nice fresh looking plant bits, for lack of a better wording.

The woman who got it for me gave me some papers, but how much does he use? Does he have to do anything with it first? Anything else we need to know?

Apparently it can take 7 months to get a medical card So hopefully, if it helps, it requires very, very little to work 'cause that stuff is expensive & we are poor. *sigh*

You can google "how to roll a joint" and get about 5, 970, 000 hits... We mix it with tobacco here, just because I'm a smoker so there's left over from that.
post #213 of 319
Dh is an ex smoker, so I think avoiding temptation might be a good idea.

I google everything,can't believe I didn't think to look for this.
post #214 of 319
Well if you can get to a head shop and pick up a pipe, he can use that without mixing the pot. We just use straight weed when using a pipe. The tobacco just keeps the joint burning better.

Well, hadn't smoked in a few weeks... Last night, I needed some serious calming so smoked a nice bowl with hubby after a very long day and heat exahustion. I could not eat anything all day to save my soul so after that, was able to force down an omelette. Sometimes with 4 kids, I forget how much it helps me to be a better, more relaxed mom. I was to the point of breaking yesterday with my 6 year old... He's just so intense sometimes that it's more then I can handle but was able to smoke, relax and sit down and play a nice game of UNO with him. I always feel like all I ever do is yell at him... so I think today I'm going to have some 1 on 1 time with him. He's such a sweetheart and just has to be busy, busy, busy all the time or we have serious melt downs. And that doesn't work out so well with 2 socially anxious parents so maybe I'll smoke one and just spend the day with my little man and let Dad wrangle the other 3 today!
post #216 of 319
I wasn't talking about anyone here, I was just ranting. It happens from time to time, I apologize.

I've never rolled a joint with tobacco, though I do know people who add it to pipes or joints. I've also never had a problem with one not being smokable.

I've got to get a steady, local-ish source. And money.
post #217 of 319
Devaskyla-be forewarned, it's pretty hard to roll a j that won't fall apart-it takes practice also, many don't use them bc it "wastes" your weed (burns it fast). I've never rolled/had a splif (tobacco rolled in), but smoked many joints, so tobacco's not needed. Honestly, I would say don't roll a j yet. Plus, he prob only needs one or two hits and joint can get you too high.

I recommend going to a head shop and asking them, here you can find a small pipe or one-hitter for $5. If you don't want to spend anything, you can use an apple or a soda can by poking holes in the right spots.

You can always find super cute stuff on Etsy, here is the cutest glass piece I found for $6.

Hi Mamas, haven't posted in a while but have been keeping up with the thread and I absolutely love how mamas there are here who partake!

I have another question to satisfy my curiosity for all you MJ smokers out there. Have you ever fainted while smoking?

Because I came seriously close to passing out on the ground outside a couple of afternoons ago when DH and I were smoking. It was normal bud that we had been smoking for days without incident and then all of a sudden wham, I have the spins and major ringing in my ears and am seeing stars so bad I end up sitting on the ground and then DH guides me into the house where I basically vegetate on the couch for an hour...This is the second time this has happened while smoking (only ever happened while smoking) in a few months...

Then we started talking about our friends who smoke and were able to pick out 3 specific incidents where 3 separate friends literally fainted while smoking (all people like myself who generally smoke daily). One incident our friend actually fell backwards down basement stairs and if my DH hadn't been standing at the base of them to catch his fall this kid could very well have died from hitting his head against the cement wall right at the bottom!!

So...someone here must have a similar story? I am very fascinated as this is a rarity for me and is one of the few negative side effects I have ever experienced using MJ.
post #220 of 319
I just had this problem yesterday when I had my afternoon "snack" while the kiddo was napping. i nearly vomited too Never really happened to me before but it was pretty scary!


BTW, I meant to add

I found a few seeds in our stash and i planted them in a pot LOL. Just an experiment. Don't really intend to have a grow-op and if it DOES grow to harvest stage, i will use it but i am not invested in it. Just planted a seed in a pot to see what will happen. I haven't seen any sprouts yet so i am thinking they weren't viable. I am in a non-legal state btw.
