consider the orchestra of almost 70 different cannabinoids in each plant! all genetically controlled and of varying psychotropic effect. of course you're confused. we have been held in the dark ages by pukes of the fed on their marijuana witch humt. there aren't any marijuana witches, just marijuana witch hunters. we will gather the science once we force the liars into compliance with the will of the plebiscite/people. I contacted Tom latham, iowa rep about medical cannabis for the vets and he responded with a letter about how he is happy to hear from me and he is working on taxes. no direct answer whatsoever., he is a pot nazi. they hate me. I am so glad! I wouldn't want to be loved by such a deciever and puke. he needs another letter. calms em right down :)

Wife really likes the heavy-hitter indicas for management of her bi-polarism. Romulan, God Bud and Blue Buddha are her favorites. She will also use a Michoacan sativa for her morning smoke with no ill effects.

I'm pretty sure sativa's are generally better for BD then indica's 99% what's on the street is always indica and where the comments are always the association of paranoia.

Inhaled much mexican schwagg way back when. Seemed to me that sativas are the paranoia-inducers. I don't have bipolar disorder (got gripes with calling it a disorder, like PMS is a disorder), but my friends with it say paranoia just destroys them. Daytime (the strain) is a very clear and energetic buzz, and they ask for it specifically. I wish I knew where to get it regularly. Does anyone know of a strain you would call a 'thinking' buzz? I hear there's a clone called Genius around that is like that, but I've never seen one. As for what's on the streets these days, I do my best to avoid it, but I'm sure you're right that most of it's indica, with the shorter flower period and all.

TGA has a couple strains that are described as a thinking buzz. Vortex, Apollo 13 (Vortex's mama), and Qleaner are all hybrids that are supposed to have interesting combinations of mind and body buzzes.

Vortex? Really? I've tried it, and like it, but what I noticed about it is the SERIOUS munchies is causes. It's a good one for my old internal injuries for just that reason. Apollo 13 I've heard is pretty clear-headed, and I just fig'rd it was a refinement of Apollo 11, which I put in the same bucket as Twisted Sister for the grin factor. I wasn't aware that was a TGA strain. Very good to know. Thank you.

Silly me. Just visited Subcool's site for the first time. I'm kinda slow. Silly me, again, cuz I spend lots of time showing people HempDepot, so they don't get burned on seeds, and--Waddayano!-Apollo 13! Right there at the top of Subcool's offerings. Duh.

Yeah, Vortex is known for the mucnhies, and for nausea/intestinal pain relief. I haven't smoked any yet -- I have some growing now, about a month from finish, and it's looking good. I can't wait! As for the high, I just know Sub describes it as a bizarre, thinking, contemplating-type high, and that he often writes while stoned on Vortex. He also said that occasionally Vortex phenos resemble mama (Apollo 13) almost exactly, for what that's worth as well. I mention Qleaner because I want to run that strain soon, and it's supposed to really have a clean, even mind/body narcotic high. Hopefully I'll know from experience soon!

I use FLO for BPD. It is very motivating and upbeat. Jilly Bean also helps me greatly.

I've been saying for years that cannabis works wonders for bipolar, guess they're FINALLY listening.

I manage my bipolar disorder very well with sativa strains when i'm depressed and indicas when I'm manic, with exceptions.

certain strains that I have used with favorable results are: cheese, g13, nyc diesel, blueberry, bubblegum.

I think really almost any cannabis will help, but some strains have particular cannabinoid ratios that lend themselves to BP disorder.


I totally agree. I have only tried Cheese, Blueberry, and NYC deisel, and all of them worked wonders for me. The blueberry is the best I have ever had... stick2dancing.gif. There is none around right now, and it is VERY expensive when it is, but it makes up the difference in price since I use far less than I do with commercial "regs" (as the young guys call it)...lol

I have never been diagnosed with BPD but I suspect I may have it, I just don't trust conventional medicine... MJ is the only thing that works for my moods though, and if I do not have any I am in a funk until I get more...

Check out the jar of BB in the pik :) I wish I had a little of that right now...

Hey guys, I don't know if anyone already posted this, I tried to read as many of the notes as possible. But this is what I've found works for my bi-polar. Three types of weed, highs, mids, and lows. Used for different levels of bi-polar... and varied use each day. This ensures that you don't get too used to one or the other, and so overall, they all have more effectiveness on the bi-polar. Specific strains I wouldn't know about, I never really bothered to find out that kind of stuff until recently. But, Any High, mid and lows will work interchangeable as long as you stagger them. You save a lot of money this way too! (omg, I'm so psyched to start growing!!!)

My wife seems to be bipolar, and I have tried smoking indicas and sativas with her, she just gets more paranoid.

I gotta agree with AncientGreen, a mix works best for me if I can get it. Something light and happy early, something to make me sleepy at night(still looking for this one), and something middle of the road for switching out the other two. I've been really wanting to run Jillybean because of the strong anti-depressants, and I am sure I will grab some at some point. I'm pretty odd, so what works for me may not work for anybody else. I don't know what kinda crazy chemical soup I got cooking away up in my brain, but it sure makes life interesting.
