  1. I'm 55 years old. Hadn't used any weed since the 70's.
    About a year ago, I went to see a doctor for a chronic backache (hoping for a perk-'script), she sent me to a chiropractor.
    That guy started sticking electric needles in my ass. One day I was laying there looking at the ass and leg muscles flinching from the electric pulses.. I decided to try some pot.
    Best move I ever made. Manages my pain, and makes my days better (and more fun). My wife likes me better when I'm high (although once she said it makes me a "chatty Cathy"...I asked her not to say that to me again).
    My son has some emotional problems. Weed makes me understand him better, be more open and <span>sympathetic</span> to his problems, and be more patient with him.
    So in a nutshell...weed controls my pain and makes me a better husband and father. Can't beat that!
    Thanks for giving me a place ro read about weed.

  2. hell yeah bro..

    Glad to hear a positive experience coming from an older (older comparatively, but certainly not old my friend!) fellow. :)
    Welcome to the city man, enjoy your visits here.
  4. Thanks for the welcome.
    There's a lot to read here, so I won't be posting much for awhile.
    Like I said in the OP..I'm pretty new to this, and I have much to learn.

    ..but right now, I have something new to me called "Durban Kush" I might not be reading much for awhile either.
  5. Welcome to GC!    :gc_rocks:
    As one of the older members here, I'd like to extend a very warm welcome to you! We need more mature tokers at GC. :yay: The kids here are great, and a few of them even listen to us "old fogies"! lol
    A lot has changed since you were toking last. Dabs, vaporizers, RSO, and the endocannabinoid system are just a few. :smoke:   But you'll get caught up as you read the posts here.
    I have something that may interest you. I collect medical studies and articles on cannabis and the cannabinoids, and I share my collection, "Granny Storm Crow's List".  Here's what it looks like-  From the "Back Pain section-
    Investigational pharmacology for low back pain         (full - 2010)
    Cannabinoids and muscular pain. Effectiveness of the local administration in rat. 
    (abst – 2012)   
    Pot a Common Remedy to Ease Back Pain      (news – 2013)
    The List goes on like that for over 1000 pages of links! :eek:   Some of the subjects covered are cancers, neuropathic pain, MS, diabetes, PTSD, even trivial stuff, like hiccups! (Try it, cannabis works!)  to get a free copy of my List, just check out the bottom of my sig and send me an email. Or, once you have a few more posts, you could also PM me your email address. Either way, I usually get your copy to you within 24 hours.
    Hope to hear from you soon!
