When you mentioned she had an "operation with complications", that said it all! Your wife has a systemic Candida albicans infection in her brain brought on by heavy antibiotics given to her during surgery. Same thing happened to me after spine fusion surgery, thought I was going nuts, it was actually a pathogenic fungus and cannabis oil can kill it, even inside the brain since cannabis safely passes thru the blood/brain barrier. Encephalopathy (brain swelling) resulting from Candida albicans inside the brain indeed can cause voices, trust me.

When cannabinoids kills off the Candida, she will feel ill from the heavy metals, acetaldehyde and other chemicals it drops into the bloodstream. It is important for her to drink plenty of water and I'd recommend eating Bentonite clay and powdered, activated carbon to help rid the body of these toxins. She will urinate frequently for a couple weeks, this is normal at the beginning when taking decarboxylated cannabis medicine internally.


I would also recommend she eats MSM (methylsulfonylmethane) with her edible cannabis, this will help with absorption greatly as it turns to DMSO (dimethylsulfoxide) inside the belly when it meets hydrochloric acid. DMSO then carries the cannabinoids deep inside all tissues of the body, for complete saturation. Plus, the Candida is further defeated by the organic sulfur present in MSM and DMSO.

It will take time, your wife will completely return to normal, but I would recommend that she take a "maintainer dose" of cannabis for the rest of her life because I am convinced that systemic Candida is actually cancer and it is embedded deep inside her, best to be safe and eat maintainer amounts of cannabis for life.

At the end of her heavy cannabis treatment, your wife will be fully back to normal, glowing and beautiful again! Nothing better than decarboxylated cannabis for muscle tone, skin, hair, nails, eyes, gums, teeth, mental and physical health!

She may need to eat a pound or more worth of flowers over the next few months, so guess it is time to turn the littlegrow into a guerilla or something larger but cannabis is 100% the answer to her mental problems. So glad I saw this thread and so glad you included that info about her surgery. You're going to save her with your skills growing cannabis... I've seen it happen personally a few times, in fact it has yet to fail.


P.S. I'd bet she has "floaters" in her vision too, that is common with Candida and Lyme infections once they make it to the head. If so, tell her that cannabis will clear her vision of floaters over time, no need to worry.

Also, tell her to never speak to her doctors of her cannabis treatment, when the cannabis stops the voices, she can be weaned off the big pharma poison that is not working. Doctors against cannabis have a nasty habit of informing your insurance company of cannabis use in violation of the patient/doctor confidentiality clause.

If she cannot afford Rick Simpson type decarboxylated cannabis oil, you can just decarboxylate cannabis nugs inside a rolled-up foil tube with the ends folded over to seal it. Baking the tube in the oven @ 220 degrees for 45 minutes works best for us. Allow to cool before opening the decarboxylated flower tube. Eat these activated buds dipped in an oil like grape seed, olive or coconut for best absorption and more mileage. Tastes fine. After just a few weeks of eating decarboxylated cannabis everyday, her improvement will be undeniable!
I agree with a fair amount of things here, however suggesting a pound of Flower will be needed within months is quite the exaggeration. it will likely take a women new to edibles that long to get up to a "starting dose"

Also the doctor thing, I don't know where you live, and frankly don't need to know, but I can't agree with this.
If we want to be taken seriously in any medical field, we need to bring these people along for the discovery.

The majority of doctors I encounter regarding cannabis as medicine are very intrigued(YMMV). however this may be a fact of living in canada. They want to "catch" up with what the underground has been doing and knows before they start fitting those things into trials and clinical tests.

As new studies are starting to look at different edible "blends" of Raw and decarbed constituents mostly in the mental health field (schizophrenia treatment study with massive doses of (raw)THCA and activated CBD and vice versa)


Now looking at your decarb point and now the amount you mentioned, things are starting to click.. your are hardly even activating all the THC. and barely touching the CBD

Google," Dr Paul Hornby Decarboxylation ", Peak conversion happens just before 311*F.

And I generally go for longer than an hour (i'm making sure all the cbd gets vibrating with as little boil off as possible as it has a similar decarb point ) and I make a Pillow out of tin foil with a parchment paper base, then place that in a ceramic bake dish at the top of the oven. with that method I'm not starting my timer until the internal temp gets to 245*F (simple meat thermo with temp probe works well best 20$ i'v sent for the job) and i don't let the temperature exceed 300*F within the dish the average plateau is around 292*-296* having the vessel at the top of the oven with give the most consistent heat while using the ceramic to shield the bud from oven ramp up.

every single patient i've shared this with has started to use this temp and vague method to manage their edible and they find they are needing to use less as more is getting activated.

Cheers hope this helps

I've done decarboxylation points all over the scale and for my equipment, sea level and liver this works best according to lab tests, effect and years of experience, the reason I said "works best for us" previously.

In my country, a young, aspiring doctor's medical education is subsidized by big pharma. The curriculum is controlled by the same and nothing really learned. When these shell-doctors graduate and are given jobs... they receive kickbacks, vacations and bonuses for hitting big pharmas prescribing goals (pill pushers) that owe a debt to their creditors, educators and bosses. The result: completely owned doctors with zero allegiance to their patients.

I will not bring these "experts" which are the majority were I live, into my healthcare decisions any longer. I am in the country of "responsible trustworthy doctors" causing the largest opioid epidemic in our history, resulting in the most deaths ever recorded from pills.

Nature does not make killer pills, yet you warn us that it likely takes several months for a woman to get up to a starting cannabis dose? Several months to get up to a 10mg dose when 1000mg of decarbed cannabis oil per day is the goal? Sir, you have no business speaking on the subject of cannabis medicine whatsoever.

Your Rockefeller model of medicine seeks to cure nothing, only wishing to capitalize on the symptom relief. This plastic healthcare model is a severe erosion of the Hippocratic Oath.

Today's medical oath: Never Heal the Golden Goose (sad, true, greedy and disgusting)

Trust in modern western medicine is quickly becoming ancient history. Cannabis should be your first defense in everyday diet and thousands of years prove this be be a naturally safe and sane choice, not to mention the hundreds of peer reviewed studies proving the same. Not to mention the patents on cannabis as a natural nerve protectant and anti-inflammatory agent of the absolute highest order.

Screw a prescription book of chemicals. People are waking up to your shell game.

So it went from a few month to a couple months now several? so what is it? 3-4 months in I don't know many that find they need that much from just starting out regardless of their condition. it simply isn't comfortable for them.

I'm talking about building up a tolerance so someone can take a massive dose of the cannabinoids if its actually needed. If you've ever actually tried to do this for anyone other than yourself? doesn't really sound like it.

You, have your Causes messed up, It is not the doctors it is the governments on that fact. Despite what you seem to think many doctors put themselves thru school by their own money, not only that but relocate to areas where they can actually treat patients safely.

if you've got a problem with big pharma (which everyone should), you have a problem with your government supporting big pharma. Doctors can only do what laws allow them.

Here in canada there is medical right. its not the only place in the world where that right exists. If you ask me you sound like you are from a place not too far from here.

I'm sorry to break it to you, cannabis can't fix everything by itself.. even it needs a little help once in awhile.

Don't try to speaking like you have any grasp of my approach, or my business speaking about cannabis as a medicine, you speak ill about medical professionals yet you see the need to diagnose her yourself? what makes you any better?

I don't think cannabis is a good treatment for mental health issues. Many people use it to self medicate...but man it is impossible to say if it works or not. I have encountered a number of people with mental health issues that tell me about how kicking psych meds and just smoking weed has been great for them and they now "see through the bullshit mannnnnn" but a good percentage of the time they then turn around and start talking to a tree or imaginary person. Not enough is known about how cannabis effects the brain.

My girl cannot consume cannabis. She has had a few weeks of schizophrenic episodes when she was younger brought on by LSD and weed and the schizophrenia runs in her family. Now its been many years with her avoiding those things and she is 100% perfect mental health.

A lot of medical advice will tell you that weed and schizo type problems don't go together, but each persons situation is different.

Holy Fuck Farm Hero.

Which Youtube documentary are you using as a reference on that fingerpainted medical license?

You'd be doing everyone a favour if you refrained from commenting on serious medical and mental health issues that you have no training, education, or experience with.

I personally suffer from some anxiety issues. To somehow deal with it, I work out a lot to angry music. Just try to transform that negative energy into something productive. Believe it or not it makes an anormous difference. Also I started taking anti-anxiety pills (supplied by Canada Drugs Direct) due to very bad panic attacks and depression. Those two methods are absolutely effective for reducing my anxiety in tough situations. Not to overpay, I order my pills online

To the OP.

I had numerous clients in mh who self-medicated with cannabis, and as some have pointed out, it's not for everyone. For some, they perceived it as a cure, while in reality, -some- (not all) found themselves in repeated cycles of self-sabotage in work and relationships because of it.

Yet for others, it seemed to work, to one extent or another.

That said, each person's circumstances and metabolism/psyche have some unique variance, and little is truly known about why some medicines work for others, for some they don't work at all, and for others, the meds can make things worse... whether folk remedies or Rx drugs.

Add to that the vast lack of certainty in understanding the onset, causes, nature, etc., of many conditions that are categorized generally as 'mental illness.'

If you research cases purportedly misdiagnosed (??) loosely as 'chronic mental illness,' involving various forms or expressions of psychosis, you can find a niche group with what I believe is some validity to their observations. Stanislas Graff/Graf (spelling?) was one such person in that group..

I listened to a presentation at a conference in Oakland, back in the 1990's, by a Judith Miller (not the nationalist press stooge who fabricated and presented CIA-generated tripe re. WMDs during the Iraq invasion, via her 'articles' in the New York Times, but a different woman by the same name), who also referenced Aldous Huxley as a supporter of their theory/hypothesis.

Their 'group' believed that there are persons who exhibit symptoms easily misdiagnosed as chronic mental illness, that otherwise are more aptly attributed to phase of life, emotional growth obstacles that cause some of these symptoms. They claimed that the use of various strategies could take these persons through their hurdles and 'blockages,' and help them past the threshold of impasse, back into a 'functioning' life (yet another vague generality, in my opinion.. 'functioning life').

They stated in their research that those persons who were interviewed or involved in the study, who were among the group alleged to be misdiagnosed, stated that they had an experience of making their way through the process (I won't bore you with the somewhat common descriptions used for this process by the subjects in the research), but that the prescribed medicating/over-medicating with Rx psychotropic medications/anti-psychotic meds, caused them to feel pulled backward through this process, preventing them from exiting 'the other end of their struggle.'

A friend in under-grad school became markedly and actively psychotic, with delusions and hallucinations a-plenty, which was, in my opinion, wrongly attributed to some hallucinogens and coke. I had been involved in his life as a friend/acquaintance for some time, and knew of other factors in his life that were stressful, that may have gone unnoticed by those rendering their diagnosis with/in his case..

His psychotic episode was acute and pronounced, and lasted for most of a year or more.. I'll skip the more specific details of his expression of this condition.

He was initially diagnosed with a schizophreniform (sp?) disorder, and medicated. Over time he gradually removed himself from the Rx regimen the Docs had initially placed him on. He went on to be a well-regarded father, husband, and was a manager for a major information retrieval system, helping to provide reliable information to a fairly well-respected entity. Stress management was a huge part of his success, and he later commented on the necessity of this as a then-part of his life routine..

As another said, if cannabis seems to genuinely be working for your gf, then more power to her. If there's more going on than meets the eye, either now or later on, then I hope she's able to tell you these things in a way that you can act as a support for her when she needs it, and choose helpful paths in the event that cannabis ceases to benefit her.

The fact that cannabis has tens of active components also might have you/she question if it's cannabis in general that helps her, or if it's a specific strain or type of cannabis.

I'll refrain from elaborating further re. my time working in mh, or my general skepticism re. the mental health field. But I'd encourage you and your gf to put significant weight on your own perceptions/experiences/observations (both of you), and not handing 100% faith over to whom ever she's seeing in the mh field. There are many persons working within that field who are skilled, compassionate, thoughtful, and competent. There are many who should not be working in that field at all. And many in between.

Good luck.
