Many plant cuttings started dying very fast due to fungus gnat infestation. After handling thousands of dead dying and rotting plants in late June i accumulated several small sores that appeared to be staphylococci. Treated for mrsa with pills and topical cream. Was also having urinary track infection symptoms as well as irritated hemroidal rectum. Suggested Epsom salt baths and drink for detox and stool loosening. Within 1 hour suffered from magnesium sulfate toxicity. ER treated with munopriocin and ciproflaxin antibiotics @15,000 milligrams. Finger check in anus for prostate problems. Hurt very bad and finger was not in anus more than 1 inch. 3 days later staff symptoms were back and more aggressive. This time traveling my lympnatic track

- Good effect of marijunana for hematuria
i had hematuria sence 3 years,i had done lots of tests like radiology,cystoscopy,kidney biopsy and many more,but all reports were normal,so after that i started a new type of thearpy that was HOMEOPATHY.but there was no results,but suddenly in party i has smoked weed sence that time there was no blood in my urine,marijuana was a very big medicine for me.and now i dont have any problem again in my urine,5 months had happend but still now no blood
- Pulmonary arterial hypertension and marijuana
Marijuana does not cause Pulmonary arterial hypertension, instead it treats it. This study proves that the indigenous cannabinoid, anandamide, lowered aldosterone levels, and therefore would lower blood pressure (http://www.odon.uba.ar/uacad/fisiologia/docs/nuevos/expression.pdf).
For more than 15 years, no blood pressure medications would keep my blood pressure down. I would be on two medications, yet hospitalized with a pressure of 200/130 when I stopped treating my illness with cannabis. Now, I am on no blood pressure meds, and keep my pressure down around 130/78. I would have had a stroke years ago without it.

I suffered and i mean suffered with this the last 2 years and tried giving up everything i thought might have caused this. Certain foods,beer,diet soda to no prevail. I havent felt this good down there in over 3 years!!!! If i knew that was what was causing this,i would of quit years ago and never got popped in the first place!!!! And yes,i would rather give up smoking weed then feel what i felt the last few years.
- I.c.d. and marijuana use
I suffered a massive myocardial infarction. 2 weeks after went into cardiac arrest, I had an I.C.D.implanted. I currently am on 6 different medications. My anxiety level and depression was ridiculous. Unable to sleep, and function socially, I self medicated myself with Marijuana. For about an 8 week period, I checked my blood pressure and pulse/ox before and after use. There was little to no change in my numbers, and am able to lead a fairly normal life now. Able to sleep, eat, and depression gone. I am 46 years old with no history of any medical conditions before my heart attack, 3 small children, and lead a happy life, considering the circumstances. Everything I have read is against this activity, and am just wondering if anybody has similar experience?
- Marijuana is found to help hyposmia
For a woman who remembers being unable to tell what was cooking in her elementary school cafeteria before she actually entered it while her classmates, on the other hand, were, I have found that marijuana improves the sense of smell. While marijuana heightens the senses in general, touch, taste, sight and hearing, smell is one of the senses which has always been significantly impaired for me. The ability to smell some things usually affects in a negative way. When I am able to smell without having used marijuana, and its is often a bit random, I mostly smell bad odors, and food, not usually sweet ones or fresh ones. Although I recognize some of the smells are bad, I am still proud of having even the ability to smell them as distinguished smells. Marijuana, makes me smell bad things. Marijuana also makes me smell strooong bad things and more often.
Also, I have a hypothesis that some forms of hyposmia are informed psychoologically.
