Summer Cannabis Mamas and MJ Lovers - Page 15

post #281 of 319
Back after being gone forever. I am so so glad that this thread still exists.

Have since moved from a very "unfriendly" area to a super friendly town. It's literally everywhere.

Wanted to pop in and say hey again. Hopefully I will be able to stop in more frequently these days.

Fun indeed! How long are you going to be in town?

We are just staying the one night. Leaving early friday. It's a 5+ hour drive and we gotta be home when the kids get home from school at 3:00pm. We are squeezing this little trip in for Keller. We're addicted!

We also have good friends just outside of Bloomington. She works at IU and he is a student at IU That must be where you go?

Well have fun! I haven't heard Keller Williams. It rings a bell though.

I am not at IU yet. Taking as many classes at the local community college before I transfer (they have good transfer agreements, thankfully). It is much cheaper. My dear friend works in the admissions office at IU and strongly advised it. I am excited to get to IU though. I love it.

Keller is AWESOME! See him any time you can. I still think he was best as a one-man-band, though.

Hi everybody! I have a question about using MJ for morning sickness. I just found out I'm preggo but I get really really sick when I am. Last time I lost 17 pounds in about 2 weeks because I couldn't keep anything down. I finally went on zofran but honestly I'm concerned about prescriptions and the chemicals in them, especially when I'm pregnant. I'd just deal with it except I have two kids and I need to be able to take care of them. So I guess that brings me to the real question. If I was using mj for my morning sickness, would it be possible to use only a very small amount to knock out the nausea but not get high? Or at least not really high? I've used a little in the past and enjoyed it, but not enough to really know what I'm doing. KWIM? When I've done it before I was just looking to get high, so I wasn't concerned with noticing too much about what was going on except "am i high yet? nope? pass it again!" lol. Anyway, any info you can give me would help.

Oh, yeah. I was thinking of getting a cheapo vaporizer off of ebay if i decide to go for it. I've never vaped before though so I don't really have any idea what I'm looking at. Any advice there?

Congrats on your pregnancy and welcome to MDC and this fabulous tribe! mj certainly helped me w/morning sickness, but I like to get high, too I suggest trying it, just smoke a very small amt and do that till you feel better. Maybe try the first time after kids are in bed for the night so if you do get high (you prob will before you feel better, but depends on the weed) you don't have to worry about them.
As for vaps, I highly recommend them, but not any specific ones. I just went to the head shop and bought the cheapest. It stopped working a few months later and had to go buy a more expensive one
Let us know how it goes!

hey ya'll! WOW and

ok enough smilies.... We were cleaning up our garage and I found some old storage jars of mine. I have been dry for at least a year due to not knowing who to call... the last guy sold me the crap off the internet that looks like cannabis and had sprayed it with the scent...thats my guess anyway, it smelled chemically and had no buzz to it.... so anyway, I find these jars from back when I got stuff with names like blueberry and AK-47. There were crystals and hairs and dust in the bottom edges. I used a knife and scraped the bottoms. I got one hit. It made me cough. I had forgotten the beauty and wonder! I felt like that song, "Hallelujah, hallelujah, etc.".....


When I came back in, the 7 yo was still singing and screaming and being loud in the bath (her dad was inside of course), but IT DIDN"T ANNOY ME! The shift in my perception had her go from annoying to being my entertainment. I watched her and her sister play for at least an hour, everything they did was so special and wonderful, I even filmed them for awhile... then we all went to our rooms to sleep and
I contemplated the beauty of the circular universe and my place in it. How everything has a reason, hard to say all I thought of course, LOL... but I was watching an episode of "The Universe" (on my pocketdish as the baby watched a video about numbers )and it was about energy. We are all energy, everything around us is energy. It comes from the Big Bang, via the sun.... energy can neither be created nor destroyed. Everything made sense. I understood the universe. I loved the universe. I loved everything. I forgot how cannabis opened the mind to spiritual/physics concepts. I was a better mom. I was patient and understanding. I could understand why she was doing things the way she was instead of being annoyed. I miss cannabis. The memory of the wonderfulness is still here and I just don't know what to do to find some. Just had to write how wonderful it was.

Hi nola~mama!

I have been vaporizing for morning sickness. And yes, it has really really helped. I can finally eat again (woot!)

Couple of recommendations, if you want them. The most well known brand is Volcano. They are pricey, but they're the top of the line. However, if you don't want to drop 400+ dollars, there are plenty of other great options for you out there. We bought a "hot box" style vaporizer and they are awesome. They take up less space than a volcano, and you don't have to fuss with the plastic bag (which I'm not a big fan of). Our brand is http://www.vaporbrothers.com/, though plenty of companies make the hot box style. They are loads cheaper than a Volcano, and will last you quite a while. We bought ours two years ago and it still works great.

Plus...hot box style vaps usually come with a glass bulb you can put on the heating element and place essential oils in. That way, when you aren't using it as a vaporizer, you can fill it with lemon or lavender and it will fill the room with that scent. That often helps me when I'm feeling queasy too.

If you go with a vap, I also recommend investing in a grinder. They range anywhere from like 10 bucks to 30. If you put straight up bud in there, it won't vaporize evenly. Also, you might have to turn up the heat too high to get anything, at which point you'll be getting smoke and not vapor, defeating the purpose of using a vap.

Any questions, PM me! Good luck mama!

Oh! Forgot to mention-

nola mama, you said your post you didn't really want to get high. In my experience (dunno if it's the same for everyone), vaporizers, while gentler in terms of taking in THC, pack a more powerful bunch than inhaling off a bong or bowl.

So if you take a few puffs off a bowl usually, I would plan to take just one "pull" off the vap and then let that sit with you for a bit before taking in anymore. You'll eventually figure out what's right for your system.

Wow, I find it to be just the opposite-- I get much higher smoking than vaping, and much more quickly. In fact, the harsher the hit the higher I get. The only exception to this is eating resin-- it takes longer, but I get much higher and I stay higher longer than if I smoke.

Me too... Namaste!

attached2elijah: Socially anxious parents here too... although, does it count if we are at home most of the time but we still get all the symptoms... maybe it's just that I'm getting too old to entertain a lively, curious, active and intense 4 yr old!!

I also realized from reading earlier posts that I need to drink way more H2O than I currently do... never have actually fainted but have come close to that feeling...

Last but not least, a friend who moved out of town left me her vaporizer to sell and I'm considering paying her little by little for it but it looks way too intimidating and it's sure harder to conceal the fact that I smoke with a huge thing like that around. I don't even know where to begin.

My question to all of you who vaporize, is it trully better than smoking? Is it easier to hide the smoke? Until I sell it I may try it, if I can get my hang around it.

Much love to all of you!!

That was beautifully said.
