    I may not be able to come unfortunately, due to my new rotating shift giving me a different day off every week. I'll know closer to the day which day I have off.

    Cactus vs. predator

    Rats have chewed my cacti a few times, and I certainly wouldn't put it past a hungry brushtail either. Chin up, soldier on

    Options For Potent Anti-Anxiety Botanical

    Interesting, I've found that 1/4 of the staff are drug/alcohol dependent no matter where Im working. Anyway, one step at a time, but make the legal prescription a top priority. Just tell the doctor that you tried a friend's oil and it was a life changing moment for your sleep and anxiety. You have to sell your case a bit, and make sure he realises it's medicinal all the way, and you're 100% serious, no funny business. Anyway acceptance of medicinal cannabis is getting better by the month, people can't discriminate against you over a legal medication. How dare they!

    That's OK mate, what if we gave it over to Sharxx for this one? I remember camping along the river a number of times near Lowood and twin bridges. It was awesome back in the day. Could pretty much do whatever you wanted back then, but its a bit busier nowadays. Maybe we can all meet at the usual spot and then convoy it out to Sharxxy's top secret camping spot. I might be able to bring a canoe. Flick some lures, smash a few tinnies... go skinnydipping... all normal guy stuff hey fellas LOL

    Options For Potent Anti-Anxiety Botanical

    Hey mate, don't throw them in the bin. Bag them up n freeze them. You might find there is the very odd occasion where you need to call on their medicinal powers in a time of great need. My understanding is that if you have a prescription then a judge will usually let you off. Just don't go driving when you're affected. Give it a couple days and then you're pretty right. That's what most people have told me.

    Options For Potent Anti-Anxiety Botanical

    Here's a few random tips from a guy I know very closely. For a start go with the legal option for your cannabis products, it's quite easy these days, just find out which local doctor or medical centre does it and just join the program or whatever you have to do to begin with. I can only see it getting easier by the month, plus you have a good excuse if you ever get a piss test etc Next tip is to only ingest orally and/or vape, which has a very different effect to smoking it, well for some people anyway. Smoking weed (combustion) actually induces anxiety in many people, while vaping greatly reduces anxiety without any of the bad effects associated with smoking (not completely sure why). Also remember that you really shouldn't be vaping the oil if it's mixed with a carrier oil like MCT. There are good vapes for dry herb for under $100. Oil or cookies seem to work fine weather they're cooked or not, the idea is not to be getting blazed anyway, always respect this powerful medicine and never abuse it or take it for granted. Try a few different methods and see what works, and give it a good hour or so to come on. Once again, if you're trying to get blazed then you'll probably find this difficult to get used to. For those who can grow their own plants there are many options with THC/CBD ratios, so go for a good medicinal strain. Remember THC certainly does have its medicinal properties, especially when used properly. And then there are all the other cannabinoids to consider, so pure CBD strains are generally not as effective as others, a fairly-well established fact nowadays. Many legal oil products come with precision dosing so keep track of exactly how many milligrams is the right dose for you. That way, if you change products in the future, you can easily calculate the number of drops to achieve the same result. There'd be nothing worse than arriving at a job interview seeing double, when all you wanted was to take the edge off your anxiety. Doctors will also want to monitor the milligrams so it's the way to go for a number of reasons. However, if you do need a little more here and there you can always whip out the vape for an immediate effect. Not real sure about other herbal options other than try them all and see what works for you. I've found peppermint and dandelion tea to be pretty good. Valerian, passionflower, chamomile, etc, many of those options are pretty good additions to cannabis products. Hope you find some useful tips here and good luck

    Thailand legalises cannabis

    Well they did in the ACT so who knows. Legalisation of Cannabis has only ever happened through public pressure and the power of the vote. Sure it may take a while but never underestimate the power of democracy, and never underestimate the destructive power of voter apathy.

    Keen to bring my rod too Well if everyone's OK with it can we let Boof give us his top pick, and then we can all see what we reckon. We wanna establish a date and venue ASAP. Cheers Boof, I think it's safe to say this one is yours to run with mate

    Those Youcamp places sounded really good Boof, you've mentioned them a few times and I was always keen. I think we really need to find a place very soon and put it to the vote. Got any more info? Links/ prices on the Youcamp. I propose Boof look further into it and let us know what he finds And then we see who's in favour etc. Anyone else keen for Boof to look into the Youcamp option?

    Meet up: Ipswich

    Sounds good to me Sorry I missed the last one. I was trapped down in NSW doing some flood repair work and didn't have any phone or internet reception. I was supposed to come back Friday, but only got back Monday. Once again, very sorry I couldn't get a message through with my appologies, but very keen for the spring meet Does that mean we need to book a campsite? Hopefully not during the school holidays then. Maybe we should camp somewhere by the river near Fernvale/Lowood. Did that plenty of times when I was a kid. It's pretty good if you get a nice spot.

    Pronouncing 'pachanoi'

    My Botany professor once told me that pronunciation of plant names is rather subjective but I'd love to hear people's thoughts on the pronunciation of everyone's favourite tongue-twister 'pachanoi'. It seems there are 2 main schools of thought, Pack-annoy and Patch-annoy, but after looking a bit deeper into it I'm wondering if there's a third, more appropriate pronunciation that may be worth considering, and I'll offer some points for and against. To begin with, it's fairly common knowledge that the Latin binomial stems from the surname of a prominent Ecuadorian botanist Prof. Abelardo Pachano who assisted Britton and Rose in their famous Andean cacti expedition. https://troutsnotes.com/pachano/ So I guess from there it's important to consider how the surname 'Pachano' is pronounced to begin with, or more specifically how HE may have pronounced his own surname. I could be wrong here but from my 'research' it would seem that in South American Hispanic the surname is most often pronounced more like either: 'Puh-CHAN-no' or 'Pa-SHANNO' which would turn out a bit like pa'CHAN-noy when latinised. (not Patcha-noy/pat'char-noy) https://www.howtopronounce.com/spanish/pachano https://www.pronouncekiwi.com/Anibal Pachano -look for the Spanish versions near the bottom of the page. Here's some examples of spanish pronunciation I came across online. The Spanish examples are a bit of a surprise, but somehow sound kinda 'right' at the same time, well at least to my ears. https://www.pronouncekiwi.com/Echinopsis pachanoi https://www.howtopronounce.com/spanish/pachanoi Anyway, love to hear other people's takes on this, is it all just subjective to our own personal preferences or have we been saying pa'CHAN-noy wrong all this time? Seems like there are plenty of options for the pronunciation of the word pachanoi anyway... https://davesgarden.com/guides/botanary/search.php?search_text=pachanoi ttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gABWITatBgs https://www.shaman-australis.com/forum/index.php?/topic/36947-how-do-you-pronounce-this-plant-name-properly/&

    Pronouncing 'pachanoi'

    So the consensus is there IS no consensus. LOL Tomato, tomato I guess... I feel like I'm learning a lot here though. And it seems like there's always exceptions to the rules too. The Hispanic surname Pachano may just be one of those words that doesn't fit neatly into convention. Personally Im starting to like somewhere between pash-a-no-eye and pa-chan-o-ee
