    Hello all! I have enjoyed reading here for a few months and figured it was time to join.

    I stopped smoking MJ in my early 20s (20 years ago) because it started causing me lots of anxiety and pretty much thought I was done with it forever.

    Unfortunately, my mom was diagnosed with colon cancer some months ago. A friend gave me 3/4 pounds of harlequin buds which I mostly made in to Rick Simpson oil and tincture for my mom. She was a bit hesitant to try any form of cannabis, so I tried everything out so I could give her better advice on dosages. I was pleasantly surprised to find that I was able to get stoned without the anxiety that spoiled it in the past. Corny as it may sound, I felt like I have been reunited with an old friend.

    I realized mom and I were gonna need more weed and my wife would prefer I not fill the yard with giant pot plants, so autoflowers seemed like the way to go.

    On the first of July, I started the following, all Dinafem:
    -5 Industrial Plant Auto CBD
    -1 Amnesia Auto CBD
    -1 OG Kush Auto CBD

    About a week after that, I started 1 MED GOM 1.0 and 10 Dr Feelgood (short stuff seeds, regular / not feminized)

    Growth rate has been a little slow but is really picking up. I have been taking pictures and will probably start a grow journal next week. I made some colloidal silver and am going to try to make some feminized seeds, but if that doesn't work, I will cross a dr feelgood male so I have some seeds for the spring.

    Thanks for the kind words.

    I am excited about growing some Autoflowering, high CBD strains. The advances in cannabis breeding over the 20 years where I didn't pay attention are truly astounding! So many options now. And being able to pick exactly what I wanted from what seemed like endless variety available online was really cool.

    I believe you are right about the high thc. I Always assumed that something about me changed as I got older and that was why smoking weed stopped being pleasant for me. But now I think maybe it was the pot that changed.

    Had a similar situation; quit smoking a bout a year after I started because it made me super jittery and anxious, quit for three years and when I picked it back up all was well. I think quality is a big factor. [And maybe in part because my friends and I were stupid and had tried that synthetic crap they were selling all over the place]
    Welcome back to the green life!
