Hi [...] I was going to try indica in fact I bought it but my psych says it hits the same receptors as benzos, did you use it during your taper or after?

Your psych is wrong. As far as I've been able discover, cannabinoids hit the endocannabinoid receptors . . . benzos hit the gaba receptors. But then most docs know diddly about mj. He probably knows he  doesn't know and just doesn't want you messing with the great unknown on his watch. Or he's wedded to his persona as mister-knows-all. He COULD know -- there is quite a lot of credible info available now, but the lack of curiosity of docs (and their arrogance) has long ago ceased to amaze me.

To answer your question, I began vaping indica during my taper. It helped a lot with pain and also helped me eat. I've continued  its use, and investigated and added CBD. I'm in search of the ideal bedtime cocktail. (If I'd known more about CBD during my taper I would have used it for anxiety as it does lower bp.)

Of course I'm not advocating this for anyone, just recounting my experiences.  ::)

How long did that last for you Beck?

I think I was on a protein liquid diet for about a month.  I lost 50 lbs. when I first got off the poisons.

I drink a smoothie and am in pain, bloated, nausea for the whole day. I eat chicken and rice and am bloated less, with less pain, still have nausea, but cant get as much down like the smoothie.

I want to avoid the smoothie but there is 600-900 cal in a smoothie and 300-600 cal in chicken and rice.

My body still canít figure things out. I was incredibly constipated last night. If itís not one end of the extreme, itís the other. I never had any gagging issues, but I definitely had nausea, bloating, stomach cramping, intense pain, diarrhea, and nausea. It felt like someone filled my stomach with air every time I ate. It hurt so bad. I literally just dealt with most of this stuff yesterday. Today was definitely better. Tomorrow is a crapshoot. :P

I havenít tried any of that stuff, yet! I definitely will, though. I was looking at some probiotic drinks today, so I might try some of those and Iíll keep the slippery elm in mind, also! Thank you [...]!
