    Hey y’all.

    Thank God for this place. I’ve learned a whole lot...

    Getting into growing. Got all the equipment. Building soil. Going slow, getting lots of pro advice.

    Now I’m going to order some seeds and I really want a strain that isn’t just high yielding or potent or popular- I really need to grow something that will fucking help me ha. I have pretty severe bipolar disorder, maybe something even a bit more extreme. I get so blindly manic, suddenly and intermittently. Not always, but often times it is expressed with blind rage that’s gotten me into boat loads of trouble throughout life. I’ve relied on bud forever, it’s the only thing that snatches me out of that severely disassociated place my mind goes to. Now I’m not walking around like an angry schizo all day, I’m actually very regular with a nice family and home and regular life, but this mind of mine loses itself sometimes... thus the home grow.

    Looking for suggestions on strains I guess? Something that will really kind of take me down a notch.... someone with bipolar or liable to fits of rage have something that works for them?

    Thanks.

    Sounds like you need to goto a dispensary and get one of everything .

    Different strains help different people honestly its hard to choose one strain for somone.

    But

    If i had to guess, id get heavy , couch lock, sleepy weed

    Chemo
    R2
    Sensi star

    Something to calm your mind rather than ramp it up like a landrace sativa lol


    Also when you go ro harvest. Let it go an extra week or two until you see 20+% amber, and also research how to properly dry and cure . To have a calming effect

    Lol, I didn’t write that. I appreciate your response more than you know, and am researching your suggestions now. Thanks for the tips on extra amber color on trichs and proper curing. Looking into referenced strains now. Thank you

    Yeah, as @projectinfo says the only way to find the best for the individual is try them, we can give suggestions but that's it as everyone is different. An example is that some swear by Jack Herer for pain relief but I find Super Silver Haze beats the pants off JH in that respect.

    But what about Jack Herer, as it's known for it's medical properties, or a strain higher in CBD like Cannatonic as the CBD aspect should give you the calming effect you desire. It doesn't have to be a "pure CBD" strain, just one that has a higher ratio of CBD than many of the "popular" strains so you don't get that uplifting energy rush that many a high THC strain gives you.

    Oh, I think growing your own is also a fantastic idea, purely as then you have something to focus on which could, in itself, help temper the mood swings. My missus has bipolar, not as extreme as you, but she has settled quite a bit since I started growing as she decided to grow other things like pretty flowers, tomatoes, and she's just dropped some strawberry seeds in "my" grow space, as she gets the pleasure of seeing her plants grow and it keeps her mind occupied as well.

    Good luck, and I wish you all the success in finding what is right for you so you can lead a less stressful life as the mood swings, and consequences thereof, get less extreme.

    mood stimulant, plus antipsychotic. Will settle you, but you will be tired as fuck.
    Something along the lines of 500mg of navalpro and 150mg of seroquil. 300 if you are really bad. The first time you take it you will feel like you got hit by a tranquilizer dart.

    Agree! It's really hard to get the best strain. Same suggestion for me. Going to a different dispensary and get every strain from each would be your best option.
