Progress with first time LED...

Iím liking the switch to LED, although Iíve blended it with a little backlighting from CF. Growing 3 strains this time...Tangerine Dream...Critical Purple...AK-47...all are autoflowers. In Michigan we can now legally grow 12 plants per person...thatís a whole lotta Cannabis. This is an interesting grow for me this time...itís the first time that Iíve staggered the planting. Tangerine Dream is in ripening stage one more week to go before flushing. (Whoa...when we used to have flushing and pot in the same breath...it was never good.)

Now I can use the groups help...Iím 67 and just got diagnosed with osteoarthritis...which Iím my mind is good news...itís not bone cancer or something else as bad.
Well as you can imagine I have quite a bit of fan, shade leaves that get removed during training.
Iíve thought about topicals but really didnít have a need...or so I thought.
Hip and knees killing me...I was eating about 8 Tylenol daily along with IcyHot to get through the day...believe it this pain came on quite suddenly after this winter...probably because of all the snowshoeing...well anyway... I took about 4 oz. of the dried leaves and ground them up into a powder, infused 2oz into about 3 cups of coconut oil.
I know that didnít make the best stuff...but 4 days now...only the magic green oil...but now I have to get serious. Iím going to dedicate one plant for making therapeutic oil but I want to get an infusion machine...anybody use one?

Magical Butter looks good or thereís the Infuzium420 which is a little less costly and seems to have more accessories. Iíve seen the Levo infuser I donít think that one would work for my usage needs.

Please can anyone help?

1. Look great.

I used LED for a couple of crops and they turned out great even though I did everything wrong.

A little older than you and have been using CBD Tincture for my aches and pains with very good results. Took about a month to really kick in. Major joint pain is still there, but little aches are relived.
I use Michigan made CBD Mary's and Detroit Fudge Co. products from the MMM shop. 4 drops under my tongue twice a day.
For the major pains, shoulder and neck I use TED's pain cream and it works great. Must put it on a couple times a day,every day. Try Amazon $19.00 a tube and it last a long time. The secret to TEDs is resveratrol as found in red wine.

Good luck and thanks for sharing.

2. Thanks, great info..

ďEverything wrongĒ...Iíve been growing for about 8 years...started with bag seed after a while you really begin to know why we call it weed, itís very forgiving. Learned tons with that hands on.
Tried my own homemade nutrients...changed lighting, in a big closet, now the last 3 years the tent.
I donít think Iíll ever stop smoking cannabis, but cut down smoking a little using edibles. I donít have a MMM card, toying with the idea of getting one only because of dosing.
