    Cannabis Propaganda - A Friends Experience

    Try Cannatrek or Cannabis Doctors Australia, my friends and I have had good experiences with both. All over the phone, product delivered too your door. Initial consult is $150ish. Flower roughly $150 for 10g. $1500 consult is outrageous. Subverting stigma is a tough gig - sounds like it would be easier to avoid telling the family. Edible products are probably gonna be less challenging to the family stigma too, I would wager.

    Cannabis Propaganda - A Friends Experience

    This seems to be the case the family is a quiet working wealthy type, beach house, farm etc and they are using their wealth and ignorance to bully my friend. I had a look at https://honahlee.com.au/articles/cannabis-clinics-australia/ and it lists clinics however which one do I pick and why would I choose a $1500 consultation over a $0 consultation. What difference is there between them? I however fear that even if she gets a pharmacy script - her family will reject her because she is just a junky - legal or not. Remember marijuana is a deadly plant with its roots in hell and you will kill your brother if you take a single puff.

    I think that's the ticket. She's using the wrong kind of paper (Tally Ho) when what she needs is a pharmacy script. And the blessing of a medical professional. In family disputes, the legal system including police can be put to work on behalf of well-heeled folk who know how to pull strings. Lawyers for wealthy families exploit every avenue of borderline harassment. Or so I'm reliably informed.

    Vinca major (Periwinkle). The bane of my (gardening) existence.

    She is a submissive person who is close to her family and has trouble standing up for herself. Feeding into her anxiety. I have suggested that she should get a medical exemption. Can anyone recommend a provider who can provide such paperwork in Victoria?

    Cannabis Propaganda - A Friends Experience

    To be honest, it sounds to me like she's be better off without those people in her life. But that's a pretty glib view of the situation and I sympathise deeply. Gosh, surely at 57 years of age, people would just let someone make decisions about their own life without interference... I would suggest she gets a consultation to acquire a script for legal medical cannabis and then tell them all to fuck off. There are many providers who will take care of the paperwork for a pretty small fee and it sounds like she would definitely qualify.

    Cannabis Propaganda - A Friends Experience

    I have a dear and beloved friend a 57-year-old professional female who lives in Victoria. She has a history of anxiety, depression, insomnia and Excoriation disorder (obsessive skin picking). She was on several SSRIs, anti-psychotics, and more. None of the medications was working. So she had another friend offer her a cannabis joint. She has been having the occasional joint for 1 month during this time her anxiety, depression, insomnia and Excoriation disorder have gone away her skin is no longer full of holes. In a month she has tapered off all other meds. She was calling her experience with cannabis "amazing" and was glad to no longer take several pills a day. Today her family found out that she smokes 1 joint every few days. Their response was to book her into a private drug rehabilitation clinic for one weak. They have threatened to cut off all contact if she does not go. They are calling her a junky and that she will lose her job and that marijuana is a gateway to heroin and cocaine. Then her sister who works for the police has put a notice on her licence that the police must pull her over whenever they come across her and that is to be treated like a drug addict and will be tested for drugs. I feel that this must be illegal, abuse of police powers and police harassment. Police should not be able to target someone without criminal cause/justification?????? Her romantic partner even turned on her, her children, sister and parents have all turned on her for smoking a fucking joint. My friend is beside herself, she was having the best day and then her supposedly loving family does this. It just shows me how insane Cannabis Propaganda is and how it has fucked up people's minds have become regarding a plant that has been used for 10,000 years and while it is temporarily restricted it soon will be made legal in a few short years. Questions Can you be forced into rehab? Can the police target you without cause? How fucked up is this for a joint?

    What is your least favourite plant?

    Nandina domestica! Laziest lanscaping choice ever. Lantana, spent my youth hacking it down, im slightly allergic to it, the spiny hairs make me itch like crazy and go red. Privet.

    Kratom Withdrawals

    As for withdrawls, paging @mr b.caapi, i think he posted a cautionary tale around here a couple of years ago...

    Kratom Withdrawals

    Older more mature leaves > younger leaves. I dont know about how picking is done in places like indo and Thailand, Rev would know but hes banned i think... id assume because labour is so cheap in these countries it would be done by hand. There are various drying and processing methods to produce different end products, such as sun curing, but it shouldn't make any major difference to the strength. Removing the central vein and petiole makes a big difference to how fine you can get your powder, unless you want to grind with a mortar and pestle or something. Its much easier to whizz in something like a magic bullet then sift through a screen to remove any fibrous stuff, and repeat until you really get nothing but fibrous stems etc.

    Kratom Withdrawals

    was there anything about different stages of leaf growth? ie newly sprouted leaves from tips that didnt exist a week ago, vs leaves that have been on the tree for weeks or months vs leaves that fall off the tree naturally in winter when they go dormant? also does anyone know what the major bulk producers do for their international exports to the US etc? do they have people picking leaves like the tea industry does for tea leaves which are then dried and ground into a powder? do they remove the leaf vein/stem, or just grind everything to save time? i am interested as i believe they export thousands of kg of dried powdered leaf to the US and around the world.

    What is your least favourite plant?

    The spineless Opuntia varieties (developed by Luther Burbank) are easier to work with than O. stricta.
  18. False Peyote

    What is your least favourite plant?

    Opuntia stricta, the gimp of Australian cacti. If I let it live it's only so I can use it as graft stock, which I still resent doing. I take perverse pleasure in slicing anchor points for rubber bands in prickly pear pads. Down with glochids. All hail Cactoblastis. Also +1 for Cereus sp., especially Cereus peruvianus. I wonder how many clones are common in Australian gardens, I suspect not many. The classic false San Pedro!

    What is your least favourite plant?

    Agapanthus blue and white, the pink one I don’t hate with burning rage, but it needs good management(deadheading) or it will spread just as badly as the ‘normal’ ones. Coprosma repens Kikuyu/ Couch the dreaded invaders, although at least kike can show you where the good soil is and cottonester.

    What is your least favourite plant?

    Gotta be the asparagus weed and Cobblers pegs. Can't go bushwalking without running into that shyt. And need I say it LANTANA!
  22. Yes, I have used this same technique for micrografting trichs, lophs, arios, astros and various other seed. Success across the board for me. I find stabbing often doesn't give enough pressure and it creates a risk of infection.

    Kratom Withdrawals

    Thanks for your replies! Its a better pain killer than cannabis but not as effective as morphine IMO. I agree tolerance breaks are always smart with any opioid receptor agonist, but I'm still curious about how withdrawals play out. I heard on one of Hamilton's podcasts that in some research the alkaloid profile of dried and imported kratom was quite different from fresh material. If I recall correctly there was much more 7-hydroxymitragynine in the dried samples. I do wonder how this influences subjective effects and if it plays into withdrawl and/or the stimulation/sedation low/high dose issue.

    Trichocereus vs Echinopsis

    Personally I think I will always call them Trichocereus, even though I`ve been told that now their name is Echinopsis. Its hard to teach an old dog new tricks and I have trouble pronouncing Echinopsis anyhow.. The genus Echinopsis has been is use since its first description in 1837 by Joseph Zuccharini, but the word was proposed by Karl Linnaeus back in 1737. The word derives from the Latin "echinos" meaning hedgehog or sea urchin and "opsis" meaning appearance, a reference to these plants dense covering of spines. Initially, it was used to classify relatively small cactus that fit this description, and didn`t really include columnar cactus at all. Most columnar cactus at this point in time belonged to the genus Cereus, derived from the Latin word for wax light or candle. In 1974 a botanist named Friedrich Gaimo concluded that Trichocereus and Echinopsis flowers were of the same type. His argument was that the ovary and floral tube lacked spines but possessed hairs, had a open or diffused type of nectary and two series of stamens. Due to Friedrich`s conclusions, and on account of the fact that Echinopsis was the older genus, all species in the Trichocereus genus were reclassified into Echinopsis.
