    A Cure for Alcoholism/Addiction?

    Gabor Mate thinks that unresolved emotional stress (i.e. trauma) precedes both anxiety and substance use. The results of more recent studies on baclofen are disappointingly mixed. For some unknown reason it works for some folks but not others.

    Soy: to bean or not to bean?

    Interestingly, one Chinese study shows daidzein is anxiolytic in male rats, though it makes them wimps (lower aggression and mating) https://www.sciencedirect.com/science/article/pii/S009130571000095X?via%3Dihub And another shows genestein is anxiolytic https://www.sciencedirect.com/science/article/pii/S0165178117301646?via%3Dihub But I rather doubt that Chinese research on soy is untainted by commercial interests. "In 2015, of the 50 top soybean companies, around half produced tofu (utilizing 350,700 tons of Non-GM soybeans), 16 produced dried soy curd (utilizing 247,600 tons), 7 produced soy milk (utilizing 80,800 tons) and soy milk powder (utilizing 230,300 tons), and the rest produced soybean paste and sauce (China Soybean Association)." http://atlanticgrainscouncil.ca/wp/wp-content/uploads/2017/03/China-Market-Research-Report.pdf

    I've concluded that my perceived back pain really is from glute or psoa dysfunction. Unfortunately my psoa massage therapist is out of action for several months. Does anyone have a link to stretching exercises that focus on piriformis or gluteus minimus (I'm guessing those are involved)?

    Sublimation, culture, and creativity.

    What I meant was that I was puzzled by many aspects of the study. Not the least of which is the use of the word "depravity" without any definition. Maybe I missed it. It seems a strong word with lots of moralistic, judgemental connotations, so maybe it's a jargon word familiar to religious scholars.

    Fasting with "brainy" job?

    Fast one or two non-work days a week? Do a 13 hour fast-- e.g. don't eat between 5 p.m. and 6 a.m.

    Proper CBD dosage?

    The medical oil users I personally know (with material from approved production facilities with extensive quality control) take 1 to 10 milligrams THC per dose, and any sense of being stoned is minimal. There is a huge amount of inter-individual variability in response to THC. For some people 2 mg would be all they could manage, but other people can take 100mg or more and be fine (somewhat stoned, but fine). Until there is some genetic test or something, the only way for someone to know is to try it.

    Proper CBD dosage?

    I am hoping to see many more hard core, placebo controlled trials in humans. I totally agree about many of the vendors who seem to just make up stories.

    Proper CBD dosage?

    They seem to be assuming any relaxant effect can only be caused by cerebral CB1 receptors (the same ones that get you high). Regarding the 6-15% bioavailability, they imply that high bioavailability is necessary for a drug to have an effect. Really? The public speaking study is an extreme one since most people rate public speaking as their #1 fear. If so, a test on more moderate situations would probably yield different results.

    Proper CBD dosage?

    For inflammation, I think THCA is relatively unknown and underrated

    Proper CBD dosage?

    Yes, with 99.9% pure CBD. My friend's experience is with CBD extract from "whole plant" marijuana, so it would contain several different cannabinoids in small quantities and probably would have synergistic effects. I have briefly sampled both 99% pure CBD and whole-plant-derived CBD in sublingual oil. Whole plant demonstrated effects at low doses (<20 mg), while the pure CBD had no perceptible effect at the same dose.

    GVT? AMRAP? DUP? Madcow? I often wonder how you guys learned all this stuff -- frequently I have no idea what you're talking about.

    To satisfy my intellectual curiosity, I had to go to the esteemed academic journal, New York Post, to learn that this sarcophagus is real https://nypost.com/2018/07/23/scientists-identify-mummy-juice-in-egyptian-sarcophagus/
