Updates on the CBD front...
My suspicion as to why smoking it, in my case, is so much better than drops (and possibly edibles, not yet sure about vaping) is for the same reason that smudge works the way it does as a spiritual medicine - fire releases the spirit of the plant, not just the chemicals, to do any healing. Scientists tend to only look at the significance of what is chemically going on in these substances, but there are deeper levels involved, especially when you use plant medicine ritualistically. I open with a prayer to Mary that Jesus help to work with the plant, along with angels Metatron and Raphael, for healing and growth. I have noticed more acute changes in recent use, and my mood has been excellent. Also, something else strange but wonderful - barely any coughing! Normally marijuana smoke makes me hack and cough like my lung is about to fly out, but lately it goes down easily. Perhaps adjustments in my soul mean my body is better at handling this, as long as I am using it in a medicinal way.
Harsh on the lungs or not, I see this treatment as temporary, and my lungs bounced back quickly from last time, so I'm sure they will again. (I may just have to be all the more cautious amid the COVID-19 thing, as a pot smoker.) Besides, I like bonding with the plant by rolling joints, sniffing the bud, all the stuff that was nice ritualistically when I used to use THC recreationally. That's completely missing with other methods. Spirit encourages this as a means of healing things that are just not quite right in me, and says it's temporary. I can't do THC at all anymore, I think, because it goes so strange and disturbing, but CBD seems like the complete opposite.
