      So all you experts out there ... I want to try some of the magic medicine for a few things that come with aging: joint pain, insomnia, anxiety/depression issues, and even to get a little high with the missus.

      I last smoked weed back at UofS in 1973. I have some respiratory issues so hot smoke is not the best idea. Suggestions? Somebody suggested doing a vape thing, as that really isn't smoke from fire, more of a vapour. I know about the edibles but that just sounds boring compared to breathing something right into your system. I guess I want some relaxation properties, some pain relief, and a bit of a mellow high, just not a full out stoned situation.

      Indica? Sativa? THC or the other stuff? Vape, smoke, bongs, waterpipes, brownies, gummies???

      Where to start?
      I am not a pro by any means but can share what I have been told and one experience with an edible last winter.
      So from what I have heard is that for joint pain and arthritis (which is what I have) you might try cannabis oil which I believe you need a prescription from your doctor. Cannabis oil has no THC so there is no high. As an ex smoker I do not want to smoke and from what I hear Cannabis smoke is very harsh even for a smoker. Last winter I was offered an edible which looks like a little ju jube. It said that the THC was 8 and that is quite low compared to some of the stink weed out there. I took it and did not think that it affected me as I was also drinking vodka. I took this edible at about 9:00 pm and went home around 12:30 and went too bed. At about 3 in the am had to get up to go to the bathroom. Well let me tell you it was an experience I have never felt before. I was just loaded and not like booze had a hell of a time walking and even finding the right room. I had a hell of a time going to the bathroom and back to bed. Woke up at 7:00 am and was still loaded. It was not a good feeling and I was paranoid because I had to drive at 9:00 and there is no way I wanted to take the chance. It lasted till about 11:00 am and than I felt good enough to drive again. For 2 days I had no ambition or energy, all I wanted to do was lay on the couch.

      So that was my experience with an edible and the only way I would take it again is if I had a few days to burn and no reason to leave the house. Anyone that thinks it is like getting a buzz similar to booze will be greatly alarmed as the two highs are nothing alike.

        For those jobs, (like pilot?) I would hope a cannabis ban was in place long before legalization.

          • Yeah, I think inhaling it is better simply because you can control how much you want, good for us lightweights. I ingested MJ once, and was so high for so long, I just got sick of the feeling after a while. That was the last time I ever ate any. Vaping looks handy, less smell I assume, and can be stored away easily with little in the way of prep when I want to pull it out.

            The thing I'm most interested in is getting CDB oil (I think mentioned earlier) that's good for all kinds of ailments, but without the high-ness.

              It was because it was illegal so when it was announced a legalization date there was probably a few who made comments about using when it became legal so now the guidelines have to be updated.

              • Received a Cannabis Act information card in the mail today and it says legal weed will have an excise stamp of a different colour for each province and territory but it doesn't mention why. There is a website at www.Canada.ca/Cannabis for more info, or 1-800-O-Canada, hopefully I can find out if I can have someone else grow my 4 plants.

                    • No confirmation of even one store that will be open in Regina the first day.
                      Regina has six retail cannabis locations but with less than a week to legalization day - it's not clear if any will be ready in time.

                      • https://globalnews.ca/news/4531125/o...pen-on-oct-17/

                        Just outside of Pilot Butte, Sask. off Highway 46, Allen Kilback is overseeing finishing touches on Eden. The store is slated for an Oct. 17 opening, and will be the recreational cannabis retailer for the RM of Edenwold, just east of Regina.

                        The mill work is just about complete, the safe was completed first our security system is up and live. Weve obviously done some painting and added colour to the facility, Kilback said.
                        Eden will have a purple, green and white colour scheme, a splash of colour from plain white drywall that made up the interior when Global News visited on Sept. 18. The garage doors of the shipping facility Eden is located in, has also been painted bright purple. Edens logo will soon be added, helping visibility from the highway.

                        Between budtenders and security personnel, Kilback said 14 or 15 jobs have been created at Eden. Security is a main focus of the budding business.

                        We looked at 32 different medical facilities, dispensaries, before we designed this, he said. I think once you come see our entry we have an area where you enter the facility, you pass through your ID. Once youre 19 or older, then well buzz you into our viewing area.

                        Kilback added that he and his staff are looking to remove some of the stigma around cannabis, offering a welcoming, informative environment.

                        Once Saskatchewan Liquor and Gaming Authority (SLGA) inspections are complete, and all staff are trained, Eden will be opening its gates on Oct. 17.

                        To be open, we worked extremely hard and had a lot of support, so its just awesome, Kilback said.

                        With a legalization day opening schedule, Eden is in the minority among Saskatchewan cannabis retailers.

                        All of this is a big undertaking and not everyone will be set to go for Oct. 17, but we expect these businesses will be ready as soon as possible, SLGA spokesperson David Morris said.

                        At this point we are estimating about one-third of the 51 locations may be ready by Oct. 17. Proponents will make their own business decisions about when they plan to open.

                        Permit holders have up to one year to set up shop. The 51 retail permit holders were selected in June, but no retail or wholesale permits will be issued before Oct. 17.

                        The permitting process is extensive. It includes a good character check, approval of inventory management system, facility security review and standard government paperwork. Retailers also must comply with local bylaws that vary by community.

                        Global News reached out to several retail permit holders across the province, and is still waiting replies from most.

                        In Moose Jaw, the ownership group behind New Leaf Emporium anticipates opening their doors next Wednesday. Moose Jaws other selected retailer, SpiritLeaf, has not yet replied.

                        Up in Prince Albert, residents will have to wait a little bit longer. Canaba Cannabis plans on opening around Nov. 1 and Prairie Cannabis is expected to open in the middle of November.

                        Both are still working on getting their stores ready for business, which includes specific storage rules like a purpose built safe-room or a minimum 341 kilogram safe to store product overnight.

                        In Regina, work appears to be underway at two locations- 1302 Broad St. and 4550 Albert St.

                        The Uhersky family is hard at work on Wiid Boutique on Albert Street. Due the time it took to pass a cannabis bylaw in Regina, they received the keys to the location in mid-September. They anticipate opening just after legalization.

                        A person working at the 1302 Broad St. location told Global News they are not yet ready to disclose when they will be opening.

                        John Thomas said the Martensville, Battlefords, and Estevan locations of Jimmys Cannabis Shop would be open around legalization day in September. He could not be reached at the time of publishing this article. The Jimmys in Moosomin will open after Oct. 17.

                        Global News is still waiting to hear further details from other Regina and Saskatoon retailers.

                              LOL. They're sampling the product and not getting down to business.
