I was never much of a toker even in my younger days. I could not tell you the difference between one strain or the other nor did I care that much. But due to a severe injury to my left shoulder back in March of 2017, which cannot be surgically repaired, I have been forced into a pain management regimen that most likely will continue for the rest of my life. I hate any kind of pain pills and since this is going to be a very lengthy (unless I drop dead) process I have gotten a medical marijuana licence and use CBD oils to manage the pain. With Canada on the verge of going legal the opportunities are endless. Through necessity I need to learn all I can about the whole process, products, growing and laws etc etc.

So with no job (I had to quit the one I had at the time, which was more of a get out of the house type of thing) and time on my hands I dug out the old Xenforo licence I still had and created another forum. There are tons of forums out there on weed but like this one, nothing really with the Canadian flavor and Canadian content. If I would have known the position I was going to find myself in 2 years ago, I would never have given this one up. Instead of having too much to do I have nothing to do. I am basically useless now for any maintenance at our shop etc.

The objective of this new one is to gather as much info as I can on the subject. I want to eventually move into growing etc but I have no idea what I am doing in those areas. I am really just beginning the process. Discussions on the laws, growing, reviews, outlets, and much more.

If any of you find yourself in my position (a medical user) or those with vast knowledge on the subject would like to join up and share, that would be great. We have years ahead of us on where this will go in Canada. It's going to be very interesting. Pop on over to The Canadian Weed Forum and check it out. I just started it so content is low. The new Xenforo 2.0 is pretty neat as well. Much improved over this version IMO. Hopefully it will give me something to do each day, at least for a few hours and eventually become a good source for Canadian users.

Looking into use for insomnia - the helping to stay sleep use,... and hopefully not contraindicated for sleep apnea

Edit: Any additional benefit for osteoarthritis in the knees would be bonus.

Will there be anything on the site about the idea of investing in up and coming companies and such when it is fully legalized? I don't partake in weed for anything myself, but the older I get (29 now) the more I think I should look into investing. I have some RRSP's with RBC going right now, but outside if the norm for investments and ways to make money, I feel like there could be good income to be made on investing in companies in a market that are about to have nearly full legal access. Especially when knowing how popular weed is before any kinds of legal access like what is unfolding here in Ontario/Canada.

Are you having to review new members? I have resent confirmation twice, no love.
No it should work essentially the same as this was. Confirmation email of course, that is the required part. You have to click on the link in that confirmation email in order for the registration to complete. After that you are in.

There is an investing section. Will be posting news there all time.
