  1. Hey mate, nice to have you on board. What sort of plants are you into? Got any cool pics to share? Hope you have a great time here and make heaps of awesome friends. :lol::lol::lol:

  2. Hey mate, cheers. Unfortunately the next weekend I get off is Sunday 15th Jan,  but I don't expect everyone to work around me though. I work a crazy 6 day cycle rather than the usual 7 day cycle, so my day off is different every week. 


    Anyway,  have fun :)

  3. Don't you dare partake in it's euphoric glory one more time until you've propagated the crap out of it and shared it with the elders in this community. People live for this kinda opportunity, nay, honour!


    Picture yourself as Gollum and the ring. 


    Wisdom, sacrifice, devotion.


    Good luck bro. If what you're saying is accurate, a huge responsibility rests on your shoulders. May the plant-gods shine their light upon your path and carry you safely on your journey :wink::wub::drool2::wub:

  4. Here's an old pic of a graft on to wild collected  Opuntia tomentosa. The graft grew very nicely but you can already see the fungal spots appearing at the base of the pedro. I ended up tossing it, not worth it IMO. Just make sure your stock is clean, that's all I'm saying :)



  5. I used to use those velvety tree pear (Opuntia tomentosa ) with great success, it was a mad stock, the only problem is that all the wild plants are infected with that shitty fungal disease that gets straight into your grafts and spreads from there.


    If you're thinking of using it think again, even if it looks like the nice fresh opuntia growth is disease free, trust me it aint. Ive even had another SABster confirm this with me after he used it.  Never again!

  6. I'm keen, and it sounds like a good way to go.


    A meet on the sat 20 of August.


    Do we roll out from there, or are we just gonna decide on a future camp date??


    I don't mind where we camp personally.


    See you at the meet :) 

  7. 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!

  8. 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 :)

  9. 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.

  10. 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 :)

  11. 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.

  12. 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 :)
