  5. Hey guys, in an effort to consolidate forums and keep things from being redundant, we have decided to merge "Live Stoner Chat" and "Introductions" into one single forum. The Live Stoner Chat thread still exists and will be stickied at the top but that will be the new home for it and we're hoping that newcomers to the site will have to take that one less step to jump into our most popular thread on the site! Thanks for understanding and see you in the chat!

    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!
