I'm fairly new to the cbd aspect of this as well. Tried cbd one time before but didn't keep it going. Since I've all but stopped taking kratom even though it works, I was looking for a good alternative and have found it I believe.

ooooh let me know how you like it and congrats for being "on your way" .

We have some awesome people here. I got interested when I saw the CBD Journey thread that @Huckleberried started over on VU and all the fabulous info from her and others posting there.

My PJ order is supposed to be here today, so I have my window open waiting to hear the mail truck. I have a few packages going out so she should stop. :) I'm excited as this will be my first "bud" I was taking the crushed up flower out of the pre-rolls I had bought last month and it works, but I know the buds will be better. My grinder got here too the other day so I am all set to GO!!!

Isn't this fun??

It’s confusing when folks switch avatars!
Still have to figure how to get one-definitely not computer or tech savvy-as my dad used to say-can't be perfect at everything:confused:

Okay, look to the left ( on your post ) where it says your name cac, see the little blue circle ( right above your name) that has a figure of a person...............click that, then a page opens and again look left and you should see basically the same thingy ( just larger ) Hover your mouse cursor on it and a thing that says "edit" should be there. Click edit and you should get a pop up where you can upload a picture from your pc, phone, etc. Try that and if you still have trouble, holler.

You can also click on your screen name at the top right, you'll see a circle that says avatar next to it. Click on the circle, it'll give you an option to upload something.

Spring of 2019, I stopped taking ALL of my medications, herbs, minerals, supplements, vitamins, etc. I simply got tired of side effects and what I perceived as no benefit. About August I tried CBD, Koi Full Spectrum 2000. I use it when I can no longer stand the pain. It does seem to lessen the pain and allow me to sleep. I still only use it occasionally.

note: The first week of 2020 I started taking, what had been my regular, supplements as listed above. Still no medications. Although I can not always guarantee my sanity, I do feel more in control.

Have you tried smoking or vaping the CBD flower? I tried vaping Koi juice, which I now know is isolate, and had a really bad reaction. Like an I got scared how bad I felt reaction.

I’m off everything too. No pain meds, no Xanax, no nothing. I tried hemp flower about a year ago, and it’s been really helpful. My state only has MMJ and my supply left town. So no MJ for me.

Thank you for sharing. That is good you are in control of your own body. For me, that is the one of the best benefits of this journey!

Thank you for your suggestion.
In short, no. My use of caffeine, CBD, and nicotine (24 to 48 mg) has evolved through more than 30 years of trial and error. I admit, mostly error (chocolate). I stopped smoking in 2007 and started vaping in 2009, discovered that high mg nicotine, later to include salts, works well. Having smoked for more than 40 years, smoking anything is not an option. I only tried CBD due to stopping all medications. It takes failure of current regimen to evoke experimentation.

I only mentioned smoking it since it’s the method that’s most predictable in results, imho

I used hemp pre rolls (aka cigs, low cbd) when I quit smoking a year ago. When I tried to quit in 2013 using plus ohm VV setups, it didn’t stick. This time around having a VW sub ohm rig did the trick. I also vape 35-50mg salts in a Naut Mini. But not everyday.

There are vaporizers that are specially made for this also. Non combustible. Most have a ceramic chamber and they heat the herb. I get not wanting to "smoke" it and I don't either, so that is why I have a vaporizer I use and I have 2 more coming from Arizer as they were having a buy one get one free. Point is, if you rather not smoke it by combustion, you may like looking at some of the herb vaproizers that @MrMeowgi posted a link about. https://tvape.com/blog/best-portable-vaporizers/

It's all about personal choice and I am glad we have some options. If what you are doing currently works for you, then that is awesome!!

After spending too much money at Secret Nature and Tweedle, I’m so glad I found Plain Jane. They have the best flower and Kief at the best prices.
