Migrated over from VU. Some of you may know me.
Seeing this forum in place and people actively using it, makes me happy.
Seeing people from VU makes me happier.

Anyway, I'm Shawn. Been a medical mj user since it was medically legal here in Michigan. Now it's recreationally legal, and we finally have licenses in place allowing rec sales. Never thought I'd see the day!

The doctors diagnosed me as non dystrophic muscular dystrophy. Large amounts of nerve and muscle damage and loss in my legs and feet. I've also had 7 back surgeries due to degenerative arthritis in my lower back.

Smoking medicinal mj helps with so much of the pain and discomfort. So much better than walking around doped up on pain killers and muscle relaxers.
Id rather take a few pulls from a nice distillate cart over popping pills any day.

Hi Shawn and welcome aboard, lots of good info here. I have stage 4 cancer and MMJ is part of my life, couldn't do without it and is also part of my natural treatment. Good to see you here.

Welcome to DWF, Shawn. Good to see you here. It’s great to hear about the relief you’re getting from the MMJ. And it’s great you can rely on that instead of pain meds. Wow!

Yeah I went down the road lined with pills many years ago. In my early 20s when I had the back injury that led to 7 surgeries. I was doped up on vicodin, norco, soma and valium. Started abusing them. Cost me everything. Took me down a really dark road for many years before I found my way back into the light.
MMJ has always been there. Helped me kick the addictions to the pills and the harder stuff that the pills led me to. 10 years free from pills powder and crystal come march 10th. Hell, I haven't even had a drink of alcohol in close to 3 years.

That’s so great! BP pain meds can be a gateway to street powder, imho. I’m so glad you’re clean, yay! Great news, Shawn.
And that MMJ is helping is amazing. I got off alprazolam two years ago, and CBD has been really helpful. For now I’m smoking it, but I guess eventually I’ll try vaping a cart. (Thanks kids, you’ve made me leery of carts with your vitamin E acetate crap!! lol)

Really glad you joined up here. This is turning into a good forum!

Congrats on getting off the alprazolam! Glad to hear cbd is helping! I have never tried CBD other than vaping it, cbd vape liquid. Effects weren't all that great. Some day I'll try smoking some cbd flower.

Ive had a few bad carts in the recent past. You know a bad one as soon as you take a hit. Uncontrollable coughing. Like inhaling powdered glass.

Im so glad we now have state related testing in place and legit sources for our mj needs here in Michigan finally.

And yes, I'm glad I joined as well! Its great to see all these familiar names. I always wondered who liked to partake over at vu, now I'll know! Lol.

Also always wanted to do this over there, but knew it wasn't allowed...
Handcheck!
Nic fix in the kryten on the mvv2 and thc fix in the form of og kush distillate. The ipv d3 works fairly well for carts. Just have to keep an eye on wattage levels. Its been known to pop a few ccell coils and render them useless because the wattage was too high.

Vaping CBD juice was not good for me. I’m not sure why. I got it at a straight up place, but it made me feel really bad. Like pass out sick bad. Unless I vaped too much of it? But I added it to nic juice. Strange.
I’ve seen a bunch of CBD carts and I may try them, but right now they’re pricey for me. Plus smoking the flower is an easy way to do it, and I know what to expect.

NY is dragging its feet with recreational use. Although, you made me realize from talking about xanax, that I might be able to get MMJ since I was getting scripts for years. Who knows. It says you have to be in danger of using opiates. I don’t know about anti anxiety pills. Maybe I’ll luck out!

I always wondered too who partook of what on VU, but I never wanted to be the person to bring it up. Even with the Farm Bill making CBD legal, I didn’t want to be *that* person bringing it up!

Glad you’re here! :hug:

Yeah cbd carts are all over here. Quality Dairy, our local chain of convenience stores specializing in milk and ice cream, they sell the cbd pre rolls, vape pens and edibles. The cbd vape pens are like 40 bucks. That's not far off from what I spend on a thc distillate cart.

Luck out?
Walk in there and say "I am in danger of using opiates"
That should work.
If they ask you to elaborate tell them you are in a lot of pain and you heard the guy at Washington Square Park would help you out if this doesn't work out.

40 here is just for a cbd cart. A thc cart will cost you anywhere from 45 to 80 bucks.
