Re: 420

CBD does absolutely nothing for me whatsoever. I may as well eat olive oil. Maybe I'm immune to marijuana? I'll try slightly more sometime and see... My DW takes 50MGs of CBD each morning for her arthritis pain. I think there are varying levels of quality with CBD and it's quite trendy. Next time y...

Re: Green tea is officially bad for you, against WoW

I think the article is misleading. It says: Medical uses are being studied, but just like many pain medications such as opioids, marijuana is an addictive substance. I checked with the CDC, https://www.cdc.gov/marijuana/faqs/marijuana-addiction.html , which says: Is it possible for someone to becom...

Re: Green tea is officially bad for you, against WoW

Wtf... Green tea and black tea are both made from the leaves of the exact same tea plant. The only difference is that the leaves in black tea are fermented and in green tea they’re not. They’re both tea and against the Word of Wisdom. Some drinks have tea in them but don’t advertise that fact, so a...

Re: Stock Market, economy, and recession?

Stockpile 50 lb. sacks of wheat in the guest room. This comes with an added bonus of giving you moral superiority over your neighbors, and most members since you are following the counsel of dead prophets. This is supposed to be funny, but I know far too many people who have this achievement as a m...

420

I tried a bit of an edible last night. That was...anticlimactic.

I technically took it for tension/pain and thought maybe would be fun too.

I did get sleepy 2 hours later. I didn't even get the munchies let alone have a high.

Advice or tips?

I had about 2.5mg.

Re: Stock Market, economy, and recession?

DOW took a hit today. That's always my cue to buy shares. I'm hopeful we are more prepared than the last time. We refinanced our house last week at a record low rate. Took years off our loan. I'm considering buying a rental if housing drops dramatically (market is peaking here, our appraisal was ver...

Re: Shunning the shunners

I went no-contact with my ex and his family. My ex and my ex MIL are responsible for my son's death. They are both completely unremorseful. It's really sickening. It's kind of weird, but the act of thinking about going no-contact was harder than actually doing it. My mental health has greatly impro...

Re: Hello

I was referred here by a friend in my ward who reached out after I shared some of my struggles with the church. I was born in the church, went to BYU, married in the temple, and have six children ages 4 to 17. I am still active but not sure anymore if the church is true. I want to believe it is, bu...

Re: The Mormon Premarital Exam

I had a pre-wedding ob/gyn exam. It was a baseline pap smear and birth control rx. No sex ed. No dilators. No big deal. If you don't mind saying, approximately how long ago was that and was it in Mormon land? Was your doctor LDS? I'm thinking things probably have changed over the years... Provo UT....

Re: Spouseman rides again!

Good for him. A great reminder for all of us that just because we might not want to engage with the LDS church as much as we used to, we should still engage in loving and helping others. And that LDSCORP doesn't have a corner on the market for service. I think it can be empowering to realize the ch...

Re: Brushes with "the other side"?

I listened to a pod-cast between Gram Hancock and Joe Rogan where they discussed Iowaska. Ayahuasca is the more common spelling in what I've read though your spelling also shows up as valid. I first heard of this in the 80s in Wade Davis' book The Serpent and The Rainbow which is quite different th...

Re: Brushes with "the other side"?

I have had sleep paralysis and the feeling is nothing like the OOBEthat I had. There s just no comparison and nothing in common, yet the OOBE has quite a bit in common with the NDE where the person is out of their body but doesn’t have the “full” NDE of meeting people and seeing the life review and...

Spouseman rides again!

Spouseman was a great (read: sincere) TBM, but now we are out. Nonbelievers and non attenders. So of late, he's been disappearing a few hours here and there. I figured he needed a break from waiting on me after my surgery or had something to do at the office. I found out what he's been up to: some s...
