Ha, what a thread! I wasn't about to get into it, but yeah, it was her own issue w/willpower sounds like. Funny how people start getting so defensive/argumentative when a conversation turns to the evil weed, lol! How sad that such a great and helpful herb can be the bearer of such bad (and wrong) opinions:(

Thanks, mamas, glad I'm not the only one who thought it was a bit ridiculous!

post #26 of 177

When it comes to MJ you're always going to have those ridiculous opinions that pot is bad for you. It's not.

post #27 of 177

someone told me that THC crosses through breastmilk much much stronger than it effects the actual smoker. This sounded like a load of BS to me but I have yet to come across anything to disprove this statement. I thought you ladies might be able to throw me a link? Thanks

post #28 of 177

Ok Ladies, ive got a question..

 

I have a friend whose been smoking for quite sometime. She didnt smoke during her first pregnancy...but this second one is almost intolerable without MJ. She's got severe anxiety and appetite issues, and is against any type of pharm drugs. She's 18 weeks now, but scared to continue smoking, because she has heard from someone that CPS can take your child if the meconium is tested, and marijuana is shown positive. We live in TN, and ive tried to research this question for weeks with no results. Ive been told that CPS only worries with other "bad" drugs...because no studies can prove that MJ has negative effects during pregnancy. She is just worried about losing the child, or having to deal with CPS issues...I, however, am more concerned with her sanity if she has to quit... Its the only thing that brings her out of severe depression and extreme anxiety episodes that last for days without smoking...Any replies will be GREATLY appreciated! 

post #29 of 177



I can't imagine that they just go around testing peoples' meconium. Unless she's already under investigation with CPS, I very very highly doubt  that anyone will test anything of hers.  If she is under investigation, I still can't imagine it...but then again, the only thing I know about Tennessee mj laws is that they don't care if you smoke it at BONNAROO!

Hi mamas - I just wanted to post to sub.  I've been researching using MJ for my disabling anxiety (I have panic disorder with agoraphobia and severe anxiety).  My pdoc is great but she just keeps giving me more and more anti-depressants; mood stabilizers and benzos and they have such bad side effects.  At the last appointment she recommended I take a moderate dose of klonopin 3x a day whether I need it or not.  yikes2.gif  That stuff is addictive and that really scares me!  But without it - like I mentioned- I am pretty disabled with anxiety on a daily basis.

 

So I got a little MJ from a friend on Sunday and tried a very little.  I was so scared it would give me worse anxiety but it didn't.  I felt calm and peaceful enough to clean my kitchen and invite friends over for an impromptu pasta dinner (something I hadn't been able to do in months - have friends in my home).  I was not edgy and irritable anymore and all my paranoid anxious fears abated.  I definitely didn't have enough to feel high at all - I just felt NORMAL again.

 

I am so happy to find this tribe.  As someone new to MJ I am eager to learn more from you all.  love.gif

Welcome Attilla! i hope your able to get off all those prescriptions! i have mild anxiety that use to be worse. now i just end up staying at home instead of going to the grocery store or just out in general if i go into panic mode, if i really need to go then i might take a toke or 2. if i don't have any smoke then i stay home. i've been dealing with it for a long time and i never met anyone with similar issues until i met my best-friend in college who was the same way. we both smoked to ease our anxieties and manage depression. because of her i was actually getting out to bars and shopping instead of hiding in the woods (yes, we both hid in the woods). i still have issues with shopping more than anything. i don't know what we would have done if we didn't smoke. now that i'm at a completely different stage in life, i don't smoke nearly as much and only use it in real times of need, for me it's a motivator to live a normal life when things start crashing down. good luck to you!

I think you're right about the BS. The best way to disprove is to see the effects! It never effected my son either way, and believe me, I was very aware in the beginning if he acted/slept differently if I'd smoked or not. I was pretty concerned when he was newborn, but I had issues with PPD and had a horrible infection and my stitches tore, so I was in physical and mental pain and it helped me greatly!He's still nursing and no change still:)

Can't answer that, I have heard of it happening but can't imagine that it's done regularly with no reason. Insurance doesn't want to pay to drug test every mom! I wonder if she'd consider a home birth? That made me much less anxious about the labor than I would have been if I'd done hospital!

So happy to hear stories like this! Don't you wish you could share it with everyone w/o feeling like a criminal?!

FYI, we always have some on hand if you're ever in a bind and now that we moved are closer to you guys;)

 

Unfortunately lately I feel like I'm always in NEED:( But at least I have MJ to balance me out!

Hi i posted this on the winter autumn, but i think it would be better here, i hope its not to out of the subject, its mj at least

Hi Mj mamas, I have a question,  its related to mj in breastfeeding, and dd cbc blood test results. She had a not so low but low 4500 leucocytes and 244000 plaquets, her ped said they were low and might have to be checked again later because that is not norma, and hopefully they would be up again, cause if not we would have to test to see whats wrong.

He asked if she had just had a cold or some viral infection, that might be the cause, but it is not the case, she is super healthy. 

I just wonder if Mj would have anything to do with a low leucocyte (which is like the white blood cells that fight infection) has to do with the immune system, and I remember i had read many articles saying how mj would compromise immune system.

So I was a little concerned about that, and ive stopped smoking to see if it improves, but i miss it and im not sure if it has anything to do or is it even necessary to stop.

????? Thanks

Hi Mama's!!!  Im back, totally fell off the mothering bandwagon but its time i come back to my likeminded roots

 

Soo, ill have to peak at what's been going, but Im still using the lovely green herb for stress relief and meditation, melts my tension and clears my thoughts

 

My dear baby boy is over 2 years old now, building his sentances and exploring his independance and making me laugh at his humour and dramatizations

 

hope to chat soon with you all !

post #35 of 177

Haven't been around in a while, life has been chaotic to say the least. Anyone in the Atlanta Ga area want to get together for a play date or anything? I need some adult socialization before I go crazy!  I have a 5 year old and an 18 month old, both girls. I have very few Friends in the area and non of them are like minded. My go to guy disappeared on me several months ago and I have had to turn back to pain meds to deal with day to day activity. I think it is time to look into moving to a more friendly state :(

Hey all!! Just bumping this thread to see if it's worth it to start a new season! Haven't been on in forever, but I've been MIA you could say... Just received my Medical Mj card in the mail this week after a 5 month wait... Dealing with severe and chronic pain from 2 herniated discs at C5-6 & C6-7. Mj is a lifesaver in dealing with all my momma duties to DD13 & DS10 <3 Love and light to all!!

Congrats on your card and good to see ya back!!

 

Does anyone grow w/limited space? We've finally bought a house and have a huge yard, but very little room inside and no garage. Wondering what we could do. We'd have some awesome friends who'd give us "starter" plants (i dont' know the terminology for any of it!) so we wouldn't have to start from seeds and they said that's much easier, but do we pretty much need an enclosed room? And if it was inside it would smell a lot, right? (like in a closet or something). Maybe we'll have to jump on building a shed...

post #38 of 177

Hi! I've been looking for a reliable 'turn key' grow box to purchase. I can't grow outside, and don't have much room inside either. I've been looking long and hard, and some of them are pretty expensive. But as far as smell, you would want one that's sealed really good, and that has a carbon filter. I'm sure it wouldn't completely eliminate all the smell but it should help... I'll post some links to a few so you get the idea.  I haven't figured out which seller/mfg are reputable, so I'm still searching, but you'll get the idea...
