No, Steve, that's just it. They have the data now to have factored all that in. Bipolar and schizophrenia - separately from all the stuff that goes along with being seriously mentally ill - are associated with a 2-3x higher covid mortality, as the scholarly articles to which I directed the thread say. No other serious mental illnesses, for example, show the same immune problems.

Like I said, bipolar has an autoimmune thing going on. I had no idea.

Sometimes what you think is just an off the cuff bias of your own imagination. I make those kind of guesses too but reserve absolute judgement.
In the medical research field there is a remarkable amount of fudging the figures, plagerism and false claims - more often by older established members. Big Pharma pays huge dividends to winners when profit motives are the real goal. Losers can be winners based upon sales and not effectiveness in a lack of regulation enviornment.

Until you're so sick you're not eligible for a human heart transplant. The man who received this heart is on the cutting edge, just as the first mechanical artificial heart in 1982 (into Dr. Barney Clark, who lived just 112 days and moved the world light-years as far as transplant science goes). The Jarvik heart.

From an article here:
When you first approached Clark, he declined. Why was that? Barney was a tough old guy, and as a successful dentist knew something about medicine. I had him watch me put an artificial heart into a cow. He saw the cow wake up and walk around. I really wanted him to understand what he might be signing up for. Barney said ‘I have some problems that this cow doesn’t have—it’s healthy going into this, I’m not.” He decided not to go through with it. I admit, I was a bit disappointed but accepted his decision.

What changed his mind? He changed his mind on Thanksgiving. He was so sick that day that his son had to carry him to the head of the dinner table. Going to bed that night, he told his wife, he was going to go through with it. He explained to her, “I’ve been kept alive for the last four years through all kinds of medicine and therapies that other people have given their lives to inform me; now, it is my time to pay them back.” That comment has really stayed with me, especially as I went on to help other patients whose reasons for the operation were different. Barney’s reason was to contribute, to move science forward and to help others in the future. Once he made up his mind, he was quite determined to go through with it.


But we digress. Back to medical pot.

Horatio there are things that will get you higher than Heaven or Earth but not everyone has access to medical research substances. Pot has the advantage of having little addictive qualities but endorphins can put ayahuaesca in the shade if you know what I mean. Yes you can make your own but so does the animal world. Due to budget restrictions one can't get Dolphin endorphins but Rhesus or Baboon endorphins are aplenty.
Euphoria, sex, strength, you name it, it gives a boost commensurate with Peruvian Marching powder on steroids.
Experiments to overcome depression and other ailments are the reason these exemplary natural substances have emerged.
They do not have the ineffable magical qualities of psychedelic mushrooms but well being to the power of ten is a road worth traveling.
It should be enough just knowing this stuff is out there but they are so good there is no denying that once taken they are easy to crave.

That reminds me genetically modified pigs that have no rejection genes are now used for pig heart transplants for humans. Also kidneys and other spare parts are on their way.

Stating the facts in a calm manner is not invective, and it's disappointing that you appear unable to address what I say without including a personal attack. Your claims for the efficacy of CBD for epilepsy are plain wrong. Here are the facts that have been obtained from UK research. One drug containing pure CBD has been licensed here for two serious and very rare forms of childhood epilepsy. In those cases, seizures are reduced in one person in eight who use this medicine. They are prescribed it only after other medicines have not worked very well. Seizures are eliminated in fewer than one person in 150. Serious side-effects occur in one person in three.

Hope this helps.

What you don't know about drug research and efficacy trials is lot. For childhood epilepsy that has nearly ceaseless seizures the CBD treatments are a virtual curative. It is far better than removing a segment of brain tissue imo. I have known a friend to have lost brain tissue the equivalent of the mass of an orange. She was featured on 60 minutes. We are in an era that cutting is legal but CBD is not. Thankfully that issue is improving. If you reserved your invectives to those you actually know you would quickly learn you should know better.

The evidence for that is incredibly slight and for very limited circumstances only. There are plenty of clinically-trialled, mainstream medications that are way above CBD in the epilepsy pecking order. I won't respond to the rest of the idiocy in that post.

What I strongly suspect from some of the posts in this thread is that there are people who like using cannabis for recreational use who are trying valiantly to legitimise it (and themselves) by claiming medical efficacy on top. For any serious condition I have or have had, my resort is to mainstream, trialled medicines. My wife was involved in two back-to-back clinical trials for two drugs aimed at preventing breast cancer. Two back-to-back, five-year trials and long-term monitoring thereafter. Both were double-blind trials which involved thousands of women. That's how it's done and how it should be done. Any claims here as to the efficacy of cannabis or its extracts simply can't hold a candle to that. Which is not to say that there isn't something in them. That isn't what I'm saying.

Yes it has, Charmion. And tobacco has killed many people, and don't get me started on the hydrogenating of cheap oils. Not a great argument for legalising another potentially harmful substance, though, it it? I wonder whether Sir Walter would have got his baccy past the authorities had its carcinogenic nature been known at the time. We should have learned enough by now about how to test stuff for harmful effects before letting even more genies out of the lamp. A small irony noted in this thread: at least one person who's a dope enthusiast (cannabis, a largely untested substance for medical efficacy in clinical trials, remember) is also a coronavirus vaccine doubter (yep, those jabs that are currently saving hundreds of thousands of lives after being passed by properly conducted clinical trials).

As I said, I think that anyone should have the right to grow plants from seeds and use the crop for their own personal use. If you know where magic mushrooms grow, great, it should be your right to collect them and abuse them at will (on yourself only). Remember that it's capitalism wot ruthlessly pushes booze, tobacco, unsustainable palm oil, fossil fuels and vicious neonicotinoid insecticides at us. Capitalism will promote the worst kinds of behaviour until the rest of us sit up and notice and start to squeal and chain ourselves to railings. 'Twas ever thus. Make dope legal, the same thing will happen. Grow it for yourself, great in my book. Commercialise it and we add one more source of ill-health to the world.

By the way, if look up genuine scientific sources which discuss the efficacy of cannabis and its products, you'll find precious few scientifically-confirmed benefits. Practically none. We are hardly out of the realms of witch-doctors and snake oil purveyors. Watch out for seeking out good old confirmation bias, weed enthusiasts!

Some people think CBD oil is psychoactive. It's not. Some CBD oil has a very minimal amount of THC. For some conditions, THC is necessary to relieve symptoms, and doesn't for others.

I thought CBD oil might help with some symptoms I have. I figured out it didn't when I couldn't tell if I'd had any.

Charmion, maybe adding alcohol and cannabis was my problem. Whatever caused it, it wasn't serious paranoia. I just was convinced everyone was talking about me, or laughing at me. Annoying, but I knew it was substance related when it was happening.

In Canada, cannabis in its many consumable forms has the same legal status as beverage alcohol, which has also addled many a brain.

I recently made my first visit to a cannabis store, where I met a lovely middle-aged woman who told me that she was required by law to limit her product advice to its recreational effects. I have asthma, so I don’t smoke it, but I’m learning to use CBD oil as a sleep aid, and I’m planning to start adding weed to my favourite cookie recipe.

The stand-out advice I received was to avoid mixing cannabis with alcohol as that combination can promote anxiety in some people, and, in extreme cases, paranoia.

It isn't necessarily a discussion of weed that has been subjected to the same kinds of rigorous clinical trials required for other "medicines" (I note that "medicine" is a helpful replacement word for "drug...") though, is it, Mrrzy?

Where I stand on this is that it should not be the state's business if I wish to sow seeds of any crop, or collect mushrooms from the wild, that I want exclusively for my personal use. I'm allowed to brew home-made beer and wine, but only for myself. To sell it on, I need a licence. Quite right. On the federal level, marijuana is illegal. A minority of your states allow its recreational use. Another minority of your states disallow its medicinal use. Not a great picture, is it? Let's face it. Claiming medical benefits might just be an excuse for some people to use weed to get high. For nearly all the conditions that have been claimed can be helped by dope there are mainstream medicines that are clinically proven to be efficacious. In the UK, "clinically proven" means something...

As I said, cannabis has addled many a brain. If I were king of the world I'd let you grow it and addle away.

Weed works for some people. Works how? And weed works badly for some people. As I said, advocacy (especially on this thread) comes from enthusiastic fellow-travellers. I won't go any further into the psychology of that as I'm not qualified. Let's just say that the more people who are on board with a notion, the easier it is to make that notion fly.

I don't wish to discuss that necessarily. But I feel that any discussion of substances that have been illegal, or still are illegal in some places, or which have not been subjected to clinical trials, should be at least a little bit vulnerable to that small voice which says that you need to be cautious and not expect miracles. Marijuana has addled many a brain and stunted many a personality on this planet. Plenty of negatives really. Good luck to you if you indulge, but beware of enthusiastic advocacy from biased fellow users. That's all.

I've been decarbolyzing dispensary flower and stuffing it into size "0" capsules or stirring it into yogurt so I'm not smoking as much. As with edibles it's a high that comes on slower and lasts about twice as long as toking depending on the THC content and the amount ingested. With this legal weed it's much easier to get the desired dosage and I seem to use about the same amount of pot as smoking.

I have switched almost entirely to medical weed, as the dispensaries here in Virginia (all pot legal to consume, own, and give, but only medical can be legally bought and sold) check, and list, all the chemicals involved, and I do not tolerate anything jazzy any more, because of anxiety.

I can look up strains of recreational but those are kinda guidelines. What is listed on the medical is more trustworthy.

What are y'all smoking these days?

Hehehee... I just saw a pic of my neck of the woods. There are Purple Loosestrife plants in it. It's all over the place and it's a nasty plant that chokes the other plants and our wetlands. My old man just loved ruses. When I was about 16, he told me it was Lambkill... pot. Man, was I sick. I did get high, tho. Like when a child tries tobacco for the first time and gets dizzy, gets a headache and throws up.
