    Thank You
    When I first got my medical cannabis card, I found support from local medical cannabis groups. I got clones, instructions, and contacts that led to other things, or otherwise proved useful, but caregivers were also available and is what I suggest that you check out.

    Have you googled for such a group in your local area. Instead of caregivers, look for medical cannabis associations, which will may have caregivers available.

    Caveat emptor picking caregivers. At least in these parts, some just want to exploit your card, while limiting the services they provide and charging handsomely.

    As LT notes, HAO oral is a sublingual and the HAO topical is a transdermal.

    HSO is just oral HAO with cinnamon candy flavoring oil added and it will burn the skin if applied topically.

    Dr Kate turned us onto troche's which saturated at about 200mg, so there was no room left for flavoring elements and they are handy and work well, but require a base available only to licensed pharmacists and aren't tasty. Probably would be perfect at 100mg with flavoring agents added.

    I've also dissolved 200mg pain doses in a minimal amount of 190 proof ethanol, and then added that to a Starbucks Frappaccino, for improved flavor. The small amount of alcohol does add some kick, but the good news is that it ties up the liver processing it, which leaves the cannabinoids in your blood stream longer.

    As far as smell and noisy neighbors, how many would care if you operated a small alcohol still on your stove top or patio?

    If you use QWET for extraction, and a closed still for alcohol removal, the only smelly time is decarboxylation.

    Maybe whomp up a big batch of boiled cabbage, or something else odoriferous while decarboxylating.

    Currently i'm not in a position to reasonably process bud into RSO(apartment with several close neighbors).

    Oil must be decarboxylated or it will not work. Options would be to buy BHO and decarb or buy flower and make QWET then decarb when you make the HAO or HSO.

    I suggest using the search bar for holy anointing oil and holy shit oil and read up on how to use. As I recall GW said its was to be placed under the tongue to dissolve.

    I will do some more checking in the area, I might try on the Alaska thread.

    I found out a couple of weeks ago the little buggers have moved to a different organ. The good Dr put me on some different meds.(chemo pills) We'll see in a couple months at the next CT scan if they're are workin. I have been using CBD for a while and that seems to help with side effects.

    Thank you LT for you kind thoughts.

    Where are you located in AK?

    There are dispensaries in most of the major cities. I would contact a few and see if they have any recommendations and I would definitely tell them your current prognosis as it may open some doors for you.

    Back in the day at least in CO one could search craigslist for mmj and find many offering caregiving services. Just beware of anything that sounds shady and as with anything internet related take the necessary precautions.

    I wish you well and please don't hesitate to reach out if you have any more questions. You now have 50 posts so Private Messages should now work for you. You can PM by clicking any members name and there is a drop down for messaging.

    Blessings and Positive Vibrations!

    I will reach out to Dr. Melemede.

    I was wondering, If a person mixed in lecithin with a bit of water and oil to the RSO, would it increase the bio-availability of the product? My understanding is that making the product water soluble enables a better absorption into the blood stream. Would a similar base amount of RSO be as effective in it's "raw" form ?

    There are two issues. One is resin content, and the other is the percent the THC, CBD, CBG, etc, is of the total.

    The lowest resin content that I've extracted was Catalyst at 5.7% resin content, but most range in the 18% to 25% range, as they have been selectively bred from the original land race for their higher resin production and THC or CBD content.

    You will need to test the specific material, but if we ASSume 20% resin content, you would need 90gm/.20 = 450 grams raw material.

    Good luck with your cancer! I suggest that you contact Dr Robert Melemede and check for his latest findings regarding kidney cancer. https://www.medicaljane.com/director...bert-melamede/

    dono bout potency but from his old site RickS used the rule of thumb, 1lb bud = 60gms of RSO.

    found this

    Hi, i found the linked article concerning treatment of kidney cancer cells. (its the first study listed on the page)

    https://www.sativaisticated.com/medi...kidney-cancer/

    What I can gleen WIN 55,212–2, inhibits cell growth and may cause cell demise.

    My understanding is that WIN 55,212–2 is a synthetic that mimics THC? Is this evidence that cannabis can treat cancer?

    Thanks for any thoughts or insights.

    I have stage 4 kidney cancer and am thinking of starting concentrate treatment. I have a few questions and will start of with this.
