I have been hearing a lot about the Smoke platform from a few friends and a few days ago I have decided it was time to join. For those of you that don't know me, my name is Wes. I am not the biggest smoker of cannabis lately, but I have been using it in different ways for its medicinal properties.

I am a disabled combat veteran, a professional photographer, and a proponent for medical marijuana because I believe in the medicinal benefits that it has. I am prescribed a myriad of sleeping medications from the VA, but cannabis is one of the few things that allows me to get a good nights sleep. I mainly use edibles, but I also have an Herbalizer for micro-dosing.

Girl Scout Cookies strain is my favorite to use in my Herbalizer. I prefer a more indica heavy hybrid or a straight indica strain. I have found that helps most with my pain and doesn't get my brain too stimulated.

I am looking forward to meeting more people that may have similar stories about how marijuana has been helping them deal with PTSD, pain and other issues. I know that marijuana can be more than just used for fun and I am trying to make sure people in my state know that.

LOL, that is awesome.

·

haha, i had to try it, but mine only went up to 4.39 :)

·

LOL.. Funny you Tecnosgal

·

That's some synchronicity for sure randomness from the void his first vote! Wow!

·
·

Actually I was the 3rd vote and it brought that total to it, but it is still synchronicity in it's finest.

Welcome brother! Yes cannabis is so many things besides getting stoned and playing video games. Glad to see you here, and look forward to your posts.

·

Thanks man. I am looking forward to it.

Welcome! I love Girl Scout Cookies after a long days of work. It lifts the weight off my shoulders, and helps me relax. It has been awhile since I have smoked some though. Might have to make a visit to the club

·

Ya, it is nice and relaxing. It helps to clear my head and make it not seem like Grand Central Station at rush hour.

Hi, Wes :) Welcome to the platform. I'm pretty sure you will love it. Feel free to invite your other 420 friends to the platform :) Wishing you a great time reading the amazing posts from our members

·

Thanks. I am looking forward to it. The cool thing about this place is I can learn some pretty cool things from everyone. I am sure there is a wealth of knowledge. I will see if I have any more friends that would enjoy this place. I am pretty sure most of them are already here.

Tincture are you using it yet or have you tried it yet? Works great for pain.

·
·
·

I haven't yet. I will have to look into it.

·

It is easy to make when you are ready search the platform for "Small Batch Tincture Recipe" I make my own it is much cheaper than buying it at a dispensary. I saw a Florida Catalog with tincture on it and they were selling 1 ounce bottle for $60 for a few dollars more you can make 4 ounces at home.

Great to have you here! You guys that are avoiding taking opioids are living proof of the benefits Cannabis brings. Looking forward to hearing your story

·

Thanks for the welcome. I have seen opioids ruin so many people's lives. I don't want to end up like that. Cannabis has been able to help with a lot more than pain.

Welcome to Smoke. Happy to hear you find relief in cannabis and and refrain from using that chemical shit thanks to it.

Looking forward to your contributions. Toke on. 🦇

·

Thanks man. I am looking forward to meeting more people here and learning a lot from everyone. This place looks like a treasure trove of knowledge.

Hey @derangedvisions nice to see you over here. Welcome to smoke

·

Thanks. Haven't talk to you in a while. How are you doing?

·
·

I am doing good found smoke back in October and with all my health issues and the fact I have been using cannabis for years to treat my pain to avoid opiates I been putting lots of efforts in over here. Blackmarket patients stories need to be told and now my kids are all grown I can kind of tell it here with plausable denability of course. As I want to help change things but I also don't want to go to jail. I want to keep access to my pain drug of choice cannabis.

·
·
·

I hear ya. I don't want to take any addictive medication to deal with my pain. There are so many lies out there about cannabis. I think once people realize that there are users that are managing their conditions using cannabis and doing it in a controlled manner, they will change their minds.

You look like a fucking viking mate.
I love it.

Those are some beautiful buds as well. Looking forward to seeing more from you!

·

LOL, thanks man. My wife didn't like how long the beard was getting and I got drunk one day and was playing with the clippers and had an "accident". It is growing back now though.

Good to see you here man, I finally got around to do a post here. Glad to hear you are getting relief and you have narrowed it down to specific strains.

Welcome to Smoke Network bud!

Great photo's. I look forward to seeing more.

·

Thanks man. I really appreciate the awesome welcome. This platform looks amazing so far. I can't wait to get to know more people here.

Welcome Wes....I had noticed the quality of your cover photo and wasn't surprised when you said you were a prof. photographer :).

All the best 🔆

·

Thanks man. That selfie was a bitch to set up and get everything right. I am glad that you like it. I need to get to work on getting some nice shots of my flower and other product. I don't normally photograph that type of stuff, lol.

·
·

Yeah man, love the lighting - the glint in left eye and the lit-up strands of beard...I'd be super pleased with a self portrait like that. As for flowers, hmm, depends where one lives huh...I can't grow atm coz it's 'illegal' and l/lord would be nervous 🙄
