i have a vaportron,,, i think its rather lame,, i also try ingesting pot in
other ways,, you are correct in the amount of smoke and how it causes lung
stresss, i agree with you on this

i do not feel stoned when i smoke,, i get a monir buzz, what i am trying to
do is ingest s much thc,, to get the proteins,,, to flood my system,, with
omega 6 fatty acid,, i also a massive dose of EFAMOL 6000mgs a day with
2000mgs of salmon oil. all 3 of these i need to flood myself with more
recent study came out stating marijuana halts the degeneration of myelin
during the ms attack,, in my disease what happens is the tcell receptor
tells the white blood cell to attack myelin which coats my
brain,nerves,spinal chord,, then once it eats thru the electrical responses
get fucked telling me my legs are paralyzed when nothing is wrong,, i am
left with a scar on brain/spine, or sclerosis,, thus lingering disability
depending on the size of scar
this is neurology 101,, myelin basic protein is being destroyed,, with the
massive doses of essential fatty acids, and proteins,, scientists state the
Ms response is halted and reversed,, -british medical journal of neurology,

i disagree,, sort of,, for me anywayz,, its like this,.,,, i pour some
coffee in the filter,, and make coffee,, then i empty it and pour more in,,
and motre an more,, using more and more fressh coffee,, soon i will have so
much coffee in me i will piss out coffee,,,
i need to smoke every hour -2 hours on the hour, my morhpine is timed 24
hour release,, a little each hour,, with fast acting for break thru pain,,
the tumor in my gut, hurt when i move,, , or sleep on that side,, they are a
constant nagging throbbing pain from dead nerves ,, these nerves feed right
thru a sclerosis on my spine at the t-10 disc area,, this increases/magnifys
my pain,,, therefore i need an opiate pain killer for the real pain from
tumors , and a neuropathic pain controller for the MS pain,, neurontin and

i see your point charlie and i agree if i go without for a week i get an
awesome buzz the first joint,, awesome,, i have done this experiment years
sorry to say that smoking pot like a chimney really does give me a better
quality of life,, i am the tyoe that does not get backed out their mind,, or
burnt out,, i dont feel sleepy from pot,, it is like smokeing rock coke to
me,, it makes me happy,, it makes the neuropathic pain stop,, decreases my
pain response neurologically,
the more pot i smoke the better i feel,, i smoke all day long,, i am
flooding my system with proteins,, for this effect,, i hope to get,, not
high,, but better!
i am truly serious thinking it will help reverse my disease course,, from
the new info from doctors studying it, i feel i am on the right track.
also i have discussed with another ms'er alison myrden
www.themarijuanamission.com, who said the exact thing to me,, she smokes
just like i do, all day,, on schedule,and does not get stoned feeling,, she
said to me,, she knows it is because ms causes a loss of this protein that
marijuana floods back into my system,, absorbing the thc containing the
i can say one thing,, i can smoke anyone under the table,, have never met my
the reason i am looking for highest thc content pot is to provide what you
explain,, if it is 10x better than what i have tried this last year,, maybe
i will need less of it each day,,
health canada burned a crop of 24% thc marijuana and stated it was too
strong for us patients,, what a load of shit,, the better the pot the less
we will need to consume to get the same benefit/results,, and i would like
to smoke less, so if i had the best pot,, not 10% thc but 24 % thc i would
need to use less of it..
like my pills,, i take one a day of something 10x stronger than the 4 times
a day pills, i take less of the extra crap used to make a pill,, they are
all the same size pill,, one is more potent,, just like medical weed should
i am searching for the most potent pot on earth,, so i will smoke less of it
i appreciate your input charlie and its very true but not so much when it
comes to medical users,,
the word addicted to morphine, is not used for me,, as i have to take it,,
its adifferent kind of addicition,, something i discussed with pain clinic
specialists,, i will take morphine forever,, thats my future.,
