Pot is fat soluble and persists in the body for a long time. You can have detectable levels in your bloodstream up to 30 days after the last time you smoked. If I'm going deep sea fishing, I smoke at bedtime the night before, and the anti-nausea effect works fine the next day.

It sounds like you may not need to medicate every day. You can experiment with every other day, or even every third day, to see if you still get relief.

Illinois visitors will be allowed to possess half of those amounts.

I am not sure what the "concentrate" is and I have no idea how many "mints" you can buy with a 500 milligram THC. I know about the 30 grams, that would last a long time. Anybody in a legal state know about the other limits? And what do you do with "concentrate?"
Does Illinois let people grow their own? Good old traditional herb is easy to grow and works just fine.

Concentrates that you buy in stores will generally be in one of the forms in this video. If you do a youtube search for thc wiki, you will find many educational videos.

We tried brownies on our trip to Amsterdam in April. Actually, our b&b in Haarlem pointed us to the local coffee house where we made our purchase. MrsK7 slept like a baby after eating her piece. Lol

So today the Mrs. Turns to me and says, "You need to get stoned." This after watching me go through the usual for about an hour. I finally gave in about 15 minutes later. As usual, withing about 10 minutes I was feeling no pain. It's four hours later and my knees and elbows are starting to complain. I'll wait until I go to bed and take a tiny hit. That will put me to sleep.

Considering the number of drugs prescribed by doctors that simply don't work or do work but turn me into a Zombie (Cymbalta) this stuff is amazing.

I'm using a mix of 3/4 Cannatonic to 1/4 Pineapple OG.

I smoke a little every night right before I go to sleep. It helps me to relax.

I think if you are a medical patient you can grow 5 plants. Otherwise, no growing in Illinois.

No, I'm not into either of those things, and I don't smoke it. I prefer edibles or tinctures.

Why don't you like to smoke it? It lasts longer and you can conserve more as opposed to just eating and it's already gone.

A lot of people don't like the idea of putting anything in their lungs. A variety of reasons. It's not necessary to eat an entire edible so it can be conserved.

I smoke, but very little. At night before bed mostly, or during the day if I need pain relief. If I want long-term relief I'll take a hit and have an edible. That's for the really bad times. I smoked from the age of eight until thirty-three. My lungs are as clean as the day I was born. I'm 71.
