    D-termine got a reaction from Emperor G_D in How to get TRT with normal test ratings?   
    Habit my old friend!  Now if this isn't drug seeking behavior idk what is.  Here's the other caveat, idk if you were a IV user in your hayday or not, or what kind of trouble running a cycle without a doc involved conjures up for you, but having needles around the house bit me in the motherfucking ass last time I thought I should be able to handle having some pins around.
     
    If you've stalled out, take a look at your diet.  Do a 30 Day Paleo Reset kind of diet, start looking into your sleep via a fitness tracker like Whoop, and get legit panels done from a doc first before you self diagnose yourself with low t.  
     
    And this is, btw, advice I'm essentially giving myself so if I was way off my apologies.  
     
    Also take a look at MK-677.  I know guys on this forum didn't much take to it, but it gives some pretty good pumps and will likely increase your appetite as well.  If you want more information on it, check YouTube for Sam Ridgeways review of MK vs Pharma grade HGH.  His page is called Live Like a Viking.  It's an oral compound, and pretty affordable as well. 
     
    Peptideswarehouse.com has it for $77 30ml of 25mg/ml.  Use coupon code SHOP for 55% off.  Dose between 40-50mg/day.

    I know MAPS is currently involved in designing a study that explores psilocybin and LSD for treatment of cluster headaches.  Think that was already mentioned above.  Anecdotally Kyle Kingsbury reported that after one of his fights in the UFC he had a migraine that was killing him for 3 days until he took a concert dose of mushrooms (1-2g) and that resolved the issue.  All I can think is thank God for organizations like MAPS and Legalize Nature.  So many people are walking trauma reservoirs, myself and family included, but there's hope on the near horizon with these novel treatments.  Let the psychedelic revolution commence!  And right after that the genetic revolution.  From ancient technologies to gene editing, all I can say is count me the fuck in.

    Well here's what I've noticed so far.  Weight loss.  Haven't changed my diet or training.  Actually diets gotten a little worse.  My recovery scores based off HRV and daily strain and sleep data have all markedly improved.  Skeletal muscle mass is up 4lbs the first week, body fat down half a percent.  Strength in endurance and relative strength all up.  And my dick, I don't remember my dick getting this hard.  Have to keep asking myself if I forget and took cialis.  All on less that 300mg of test and about 300mg of EQ a week.  Training load will increase over the next week so we'll see what's up.  Not like this is news to anyone that anabolics work.  Guess 6 months off wasn't the worst idea.

    The problem is the research is still so new that it's hard to really ascribe all these effects with certainty until more studies are carried out. 
     
    As far as I know, the pain research shows whole cannabis and THC has very significant effects at reducing chronic and neuropathic pain, including in those whose pain is not resolved by other, standard treatments. https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/19732371 This effect may be mediated by THC's action at the amygdala and its modulation of perceived pain https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/23273106  rather than direct antinociception https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/18580179 , although biochemically CB1 agonists like THC do affect neurons that send pain signals via inhibition of their activity. 
     
    The studies done with CBD are even fewer, and I think these suggest an even lower magnitude of effect than with whole cannabis extracts or THC. https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/28457055 showed how some patients are just unresponsive to treatment, while some received some relief. https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/29579828 also demonstrated pain relief in some patients, but with lower magnitude than previously reported with whole cannabis or THC
     
    Things CBD definitely does well with is controlling seizures, reducing anxiety, and inducing sleep. It is possible that all of these effects are mediated by CBD's affinity for 5HT receptors. Remember, CBD has an affinity for CB2/CB1, but it is weak. And although some studies have shown synergistic effects with THC, these have been at low doses - at high doses, CBD antagonizes THC. So at best, CBD is some sort of allosteric modulator that may enhance effects under certain contexts and antagonize it in others - but it is likely an actually weak antagonist of the CB receptors.
     
    To your point about the miracle effects touted on youtube. There's actually way more to this than the effects of pure CBD, contamination of products with THC and designer cannabinoids, or placebo. A huge contributor are terpenes. If the CBD you're using is pure CBD dissolved in like an innocuous oil or glycerol mixture, then the effects should be like those I mentioned above. But some tinctures are dissolved in a terpene oil matrix. The science is even more nascent in this field, but initial findings suggest terpenes are potent modulators of the endo/cannabinoid signaling network. They may be positive allosteric modulators, negative modulators, they inhibit the breakdown of cannabinoids, and they may even be agonists themselves of CB1/CB2. So if somebody is using a CBD mix dissolved in terpenes and thinks they feel high, this may actually be a very real effect, especially depending on that person's individual physiology and biochemistry. Your epi/genetics and drug and medical history will likely have an impact on your experience with the product, but these things are not pure fantasy.

    Honestly I've been inconsistent with dosing.  The first evening I took 300mg spread out over maybe 6 hours.  Within the first 100mg or less a knot that had been killing me in my neck/back almost completely let up.  By the end of the night I was nearly passing out even with a bit of thc in my system, which normally would have me wide awake.  
     
    From what I've gathered, 100-300mg are doses used in clinical studies looking at improving sleep duration and quality.  
     
    Have a delivery guy on the way with a 1:1 thc:cbd vape pen and some 250mg CBD tincture.  We'll see how this goes.
     
    And last night I split a prerolled CBD joint with a buddy and I could have sworn I got a little high.
     
    Update:  Got a 1:1 CBD to Vape pen, 1/2g I think.  One little rip does me just right.  Can even mix it in throughout the work day.  It's relaxing and stimulating.  Very enjoyable. 
     
    Love the stuff that is coming to market.  I guess other cannabinoids have unique and interesting properties that just now being studied.  Curious to see what the next few years of isolated cannabinoid tinctures will look like.

    I've been taking around 100-200mg in the evenings, seems to do the trick.  I used an oil based tincture first, then switched to a water soluble CBD/Curcumin tincture from BioReigns.  Didn't feel as much from that and it claims to be 10x stronger than oil based products.  It's a MLM company so my skepticism is soaring.

    Please read my last response before this, but tapering amphetamines doesn't work.  They work less and less, and demand you take more and more. Cold turkey gets it done.  Sleep it off for a week.  But be prepared to fill all the holes in your life that the drug was filling.  Build a routine and plan of action that will guide your recovery.  Join a group.  Stop listening to the doctors that prescribed you this poison, debilitated you with diagnoses, and have only perpetuated this cycle of self harm in the name of antiquated science based on symptom suppression, completely ignorant to the idea of root cause analysis.  If you want some one on one chats, get at me.

    My homie speaks truth here, and there is something to drying out off of everything and going balls deep on a paleo template/reset diet.  Seeing what it's like to be yourself again.  The deeper I got with my diet, the fewer and further between my shots of test got.  After 5 years I found myself pinning 250mg once a month and feeling amazing in between.  Got off shortly after that and within a month or two max my dick, libido and mind were more on point than at any time prior slamming all the best performance enhancers money could buy.

    Also wanted to throw in hot and cold therapies.  Go for 30 mins of sauna 4x/wk and see if you can't do some kind of cryotherapy, cold water immersion, something along those lines to jack your norepinephrine levels up and stop inflammation in it's tracks.  And just get the fuck off the stims, there's no nice middle ground with them.  Take solace in the fact you can afford the kitchen sink, garbage can, and half the supplement isle at Whole Foods.

    I just listened to a podcast from Chris Kresser a few days ago regarding how to deal with anxiety with a Functional Medicine based approach.  He recommended 250mg/day of CBD to treat anxiety, so there's that. He cautioned that some may have an inverse reaction, so best to work your way up to that dosage.  I also asked at my local smoke shop this past week and they said smoking it makes it hit harder and faster, but ingesting it slows things down.  They sell CBD joints now at our local head shop, $10.  The guy told me he came in with a hangover, sparked one of those, and viola it was gone.  Wish more strains had a balanced THC:CBD ratio, and that the price would come the fuck down already.  Seems like there isn't much CBD doesn't seem to help with.

    I don't think the gelatin caps are grass fed and finished.  More like obese eating soy, grains, candy wrappers and whatever else is thrown in the slop bin at the CAFO's responsible for the protective love a 000 cap provides.
     
    If you want studies, lots of them cited within this article.  I'll link to the bone broth and beef gelatin I use.  Tasteless, great for thickening soups, making desserts, adding to tea or smoothies.  From what I've read much like the massive imbalance of omega 3:6 ratio in the SAD (it should be around 1:1 or 1:3, but is now at 1:16), bone broth is high in glycine and proline, amino acids not found in lean cuts of meat.  Diets low in glycine and proline are high in methionine, which can block tryptophan from crossing the blood brain barrier, decreasing conversion to serotonin and melatonin.  Glycine has been shown to improve sleep according to this. 
     
    I could sit here all night paraphrasing Chris Kresser's article, but I'd rather just post it up for.  He has over 70 studies cited and linked within it, so if you need a science chub, head on over.  The Bountiful Benefits of Bone Broth.

    I think people to talk to are important period. Acute loneliness has been shown to release the same amount of cortisol as a punch in the face from a stranger. Which means I've been suffering from severe head trauma these last few years. But funny that you mention that, I actually found my way to my mother's house after my friend redosed me 2 hours in and then left me to fend for myself. So after a few hours in a field and an immensely pleasurable stint in a drainage ditch listening to the birds all around me, I made my way to my mother's house at 3 in the morning.
     
    Woke her up, and then listen to her tell me about her woes for the next few hours and would gently touch her arm to let her know I was there. I was really hoping to convince her to perhaps try it at some point with me in the future as I think it would really help her with a lot of things in her life, but I don't think that's in the cards for her. That said, I had a nice night with my mom and how many people can say they took ecstasy and then hung out in their moms bed all night bonding? I'm guessing the number is very close to almost none.

    So a buddy of mine, experienced gear head who has routinely been among a group of my buddies to lose his hair and then kitchen sink it back to life with a slew of compounds, pointed to my hairline a week ago and it's all I've seen since.  Luckily I have never really lost hair from cycling, or so I thought.  I ended up pulling out pics from my first cycle 13 years ago when I shaved my head after to determine if I'd lost any hair to compare.  So while I didn't lose any then, it seems like 32 year old me may be receding a bit compared to 19 year old punk kid version.
     
    Compound this with finding out that tying your hair back fucks with the hair follicles, and my man bun backfired again.
     
    SO, here is what my buddy said to me and I wanted to know if it had any merit past his broscience.  He claims that when he comes of test, he experiences hairloss. It reverses when he gets back on it. Sometimes certain compounds like winny or tren ravage his hairline, but he is confident that test helps.
     
    Now with that said, is there any chance that testosterone helps keep hair on your head?  I mean it puts hair everywhere else on my body, so why not thicken things up on top? Been off for several months now, started enjoying nocturnal penile tumescence a few weeks back like nobody's business, but there's always a catch.
     
     
     
    PS, to any who care, today marks 31 days clean off AMP/METH, quit my ecig after nearly a decade two weeks ago after one session of MDMA, no longer on xanax, and it's been a week since I've even had a melatonin.  Worked my tits off to get here, and just thought I'd share. @STENDEC to answer your question, this is the first time I've gone drug free in over a decade.  Not since jail/probation have been clean for more than a week or two. And I don't count the one time use of MDMA which I used to quit smoking, or the handful of psilocybin/AL-LAD microdosing days in the last month. They've helped me process trauma, forgive myself, and get back to a healthy frame of mind. Because as Johann Hari so aptly puts it, the opposite of addiction is not sobriety. The opposite of addiction is connection.
     
    But yeah, sorry to hijack my own thread. Just don't post much and wanted to share with the board. Much love!
