I've smoked pot off and on for 15 years now. My heavy smoking days are long behind me (I've not been a daily smoker since 2007). I've quit for extended periods (three years was the longest), and these days I just smoke occasionally (a couple times a month).

I recently acquired a medical marijuana card for a muscle condition I have in my shoulder (scapula dyskinesia, in which the muscles between my collarbone and scapula are all screwed up). It flares up and causes a lot of pain and popping, as my scapula rubs on my rib cage due to the muscles not working correctly.

Being able to legally procure marijuana is an amazing thing. I can spec out the kind that I want, choosing between indica, sativa, or hybrids; and can identify the levels of THC and CBD in a given strain. It's really a godsend: I can now legally purchase a pure-CBD tincture that relaxes my muscles and helps me sleep, without any of the psychoactive effects of THC -- I'm not even a little bit stoned when I take a couple drops of this stuff.

I don't have another place to talk about this, because the typical pot boards are filled with hardcore stoners and are not interesting to me...

I am curious if there are others on the board like me? Anyone using pot medically, or recreationally without overdoing it?

That's pretty cool. I had no idea you could get some that helps pain but doesn't get you high. Interesting.

i'm a daily smoker, have been since I was like 16

but for the last five years or so it's not been as all encompassing as it once was. i smoke every day but not all day. i typically just smoke enough to get stoned and that's it, and i don't let it be a defining characteristic of my identity the way it once was.

Yea, when I was still working in studios, it was a big part of the culture. Nothing like smoking a joint at the end of a session and listening to Binaural through a pair of Oceanways. :bammer:

My psoriatic arthritis is getting worse and worse and I've been contemplating getting a medical marijuana card. I generally avoid pain killers like the plague and most of the other treatments for PsA would weaken my immune system, which is really a bad idea considering my immune system is already weakened with the number of miles I generally run. I may just grit my teeth and bear it for a few years.

I wont allow smoke of any kind in my lungs. Even when I was younger I had issues with the idea of diminishing my outstanding lung capacity.

The CBD tinctures might be great for you. A couple drops are stronger than ibuprofen, but much weaker than an oxy or similar. I find them to have a very gentle, manageable effect on my shoulder and arm pain.

Yep, and THC is the change in mental state.

I don't go that far, but I've never been good with smoke in general. All that said, I don't mind partaking if it's around in the social setting at the time, but it's never done much for me and I've never had any desire to seek it out. And yes, this always raises eyebrows to the people who first knew me by this username.

It's up to how detailed the shops want to be. I saw shops in Seattle where it was all listed. The shop I go to here in MT just has the strain name in the store, and then their website has all the details of everything they carry.

For me, the smell is quite varied. When it's good, it's quite good, but when it's bad, it's really bad.
