Re: Mental Health (ASD, Depression, Anxiety, Bipolar, etc.)

Umm, the shrooms probably didn't help with your clinical anxiety because you took large doses. Studies are being conducted on MICROdosing. A steady, reliable dosage given by professionals in an extremely low amount. And then they have a therapist there (a real one) guiding you through your emotions. I think I also read that they do maybe *one* breakthrough dosage which is really high. But yeah. It isn't about tripping and staring at the grapes in the produce section.

Recreational usage =/= clinical

I am a marijuana connoisseur. I have a med card in two states and have smoked over 125 strains (I made a list once of all the names I could remember purchasing, lol) of all various genetics and growers.

IMO - marijuana can only cause anxiety when THC is in the absence of CBD. My favorite, most creative and enjoyable highs have always come from high CBS strains, or at least containing some.

Unfortunately what I have seen in the dispensary world is a push towards THC and THC content only. Strains known to contain CBD do not sell well, people think they won't ‘get high’ from it because of the reports of Charlotte’s Web. They're wrong, and I can usually find the CBD strains on sale or discount. Win for me, lol.

There is a synergistic effect between CBD and THC and when you crossbreed to try and eliminate it, IMO that's what can give some people anxiety.

Also the terpenes in pot are super powerful. I've always noticed the more citrusy strains or pine-smelling strains are the best for reducing anxiety. Limonene and pinene would be the two terpenes responsible there.

Re: Mental Health (ASD, Depression, Anxiety, Bipolar, etc.)

If i recall correctly from a mid 90's issue of High Times, there are at least a few hundred different chemicals in most commercially grown marijuana. Back then a THC content of 6-7% was considered relatively high, and it would also make it the dominant cannabinoid chemical in that sample. The article i read stated that pure THC didn't produce a strong euphoria; that it was the synergy of the different chemicals together that created the various types of highs.

Obviously part of the push for higher tetrahydrocannabinoid contents is from public perception that that's the chemical that produces euphoria, which as you pointed out, is a little skewed. But another big part of the push for higher THC percentages comes from the medical use community, as THC is the cannabinoid that's shown the best results for pain management.

gift cards make great gifts both for shoppers who are lazy and/or have a lot of gifts to buy. They're also a shrewd choice if there are individuals in your life for whom it is difficult to shop. When bought through the astore, they also help support this site, which isn't self-sufficient and doesn't hold fund-raisers or any of that other crap.

Please consider doing at least some of your holiday shopping through our astore this year.
