What’s the use?

I used to grow, smoke and sell a Blueberry pheno. My grow then was a 6x600w bubbler system that I cobbled together myself. I used to get around 3kg per crop from this grow.

I chose the mother myself from 50 seed plants because it smelled ‘extra blueberry’, was a good strong smoke, gave a beautiful buzz and a good yield.

My main customer at this time was a guy from a certain university where they develop prosthetic limbs for amputees. It turned out, by chance, that my particular blueberry specimen was a very effective treatment for phantom limb pain. About 2 – 2 ½ kilos of my crop went to this guy who passed it on to his patients.

It is always satisfying, after selling a crop, to sit back and have a smoke while thinking about all those other dudes out there enjoying the same buzz due to your efforts. It is even more satisfying when you know the weed you have grown is helping someone out of their suffering.

It would be cool (and useful) to know if you have knowledge of any particular variety that has a specific medical use.

We keep an MK Ultra and an Originaldawg that I find work wonders on stomach cramps and intestinal issues. A friend who had was able to try some said it helped him stay functioning while ill.

I have to be honest, I don't know much about the medicinal side of Cannabis because I use it all the time anyway.

But when I was about 19-20 I ate chicken from somewhere in London and within 48 hours I was so ill I couldn't move. My GP told me the obvious that I had a severe case of food poisoning and told me what to do. For 6 days if I tried to eat anything it just destroyed me.

But the entire time I was taking pain killers the GP gave me they did nothing.

I had some NL at the time and it truly did take the pain away. I haven't really had any other experience with medicinal use, but this one was enough to tell me that Cannabis really can ease pain, and it was defo' NL I was smoking because I picked it of the plant and dried it myself.

I find Blues and Blues hybrids the most useful, they help me cope with chronic pain from Spinal disease and also the various symptoms of Parkinsons ~ barring balance loss. That is made worse by every strain I've smoked. But the pain is shoved into the background, kind of out of focus.

@@Arnold Layne

just read what you said , do you mean the herb makes you lose balance or that is from the parkinsons ,just I have been under going more tests due to the balance loss and the falling and blackouts I have , the docs have put me on no pain meds at all and no herb until at least xmas as they want to clean my system before they can do anymore .

sorry just wondering as I wonder if you might ask them for exercises I am doing to try and retrain my brain on the balance side

stay safe grow well

I have found nothing that has helped my depression as much as blues and smellyberry, I don't know if it is the blueberry that gives it this effect but these plants are great for depression I have found, very euphoric and social buzz.

Have you tried Bubbleberry from Sagarmatha seeds. Bubbleberry is quite a lot different to iether of its parents blueberry/bubblegum. It gives the most uplifting, giggly high I have come across, smells and tastes amazing too.

Smile has been the best for my depression, I implore you to grabb bsome F2s from the subbies list.

E2A that you might be right about the blueberry and is a big reason I got some Azure Haze seeds from DJ short as it is crossed with his F4 blueberry male - I'll come bback to this thread if its a good smoke for depression

I have not tried that yet but it sounds very nice :) I will check it out mate.

@@Golden Syrup I am vaping smile at the minute from my last grow, it is really nice but none of the phenos i have tried give me that euphoria i get from the blues or smellyberry, i seem to build a tolerance to it very quick. I still have a few smile seeds left so maybe might find a more uplifting pheno next time.

My balance is poor due to Parkinsons, smoking grass/hash just makes it worse. Not that I mind, particularly ~ just making an observation.

I had hoped that Dopamine replacement therapy (DRT) would resolve this particular symptom, but it seems like that's not going to be the case. Not yet, anyway. They (Specialists, and other folks living with PD) do say that it can take time to find the right dose, so maybe I just need to be patient. I can do that. I've been told that should the Dopamine replacement therapy fail, I'll be offered a surgical alternative. Probably Deep Brain Stimulation (DBS), which is like a kind of brain Pacemaker. I have yet to make a decision about whether or not I would want to go ahead with this, at the moment I just need to continue with the DRT, and give it time to work. It may well be that I just need a higher dose.

I get a visit every fortnight from the Parkinson's Disease Physiotherapist, who is trying to strengthen my balance by exercise. Problem is I have been wrestling spinal disease for the last 30 or so years. This has led to daily outbreaks of pain, and sciatic pain in particular ~ the kind that locks you up and stops you moving. I'm finding it almost impossible to do the exercises when I am going through a pain flare up, such as over this past week or two. So it ends up being a case of two steps forward, one step back.

I think as @ArnoldLayne has mentioned before, it's pretty much horses for courses as strains often affect people differently.

I enjoy the kush I grew in the greenhouse this year but it gives Mrs BB a stinking sore head :v:

@@Arnold Layne ok mate good luck I know the horror of no balance mate mine is the heart causing mine it is a strange story as the doctors know I damaged the central part of the brain they can not get to , if they offer the brain stim pacemaker mate it would be well worth it my pacemaker keeps me alive and if your will help it would be worth taking the risk ,it is very scary thinking of a little box keeping you alive but hey I am alive so I guess it is a plus .

I also struggle to do the exercises as I fall a lot ,my guy told me just do them on the good days forget trying on the bad days any little bit will help to train the brain.

Stay safe grow well
