I use medical marijuana for chronic severe pain. Smoking mmj greatly helps to reduce the severity of the pain that I must endure. This pain is caused, in part, by Degenerative Disk Disease & Bertolotti's Syndrome. Also, I have an additional vertebrae in my spine... after the L-5 there is an L-6. Weird, I know. I am also 6'4'' and have had numerous severe injuries to my lower back over the past few years. The pain is constant and I am sick and tired of taking opiate-based pain killers.
When I first moved to an MMJ friendly state (medical marijuana and MMJ have the same meaning, and will be used interchangeably on this site), I spent a lot of time on the internet searching for information covering all aspects of mmj; how to find a doctor, my state's criminal marijuana laws, the process of getting a card from the state, growing good marijuana, cannabis varieties, foliage feeding, sexing cannabis plants and at least a hundred other topics.
To my suprise, I never found a website that came close to offering me everything that I was looking for. Dont get me wrong, I found a ton of information, just not all in one place. So.....I'm going to build one myself!!
There are so many sites out there that look innocent and full of information until you dig a little deeper and find out that the doctor that this site or that site is recommending you to is not really even a doctor but another referral service trying to suck more cash out of your wallet. Or how about that online medical marijuana dispensary that delivers in your state? Are they reputable? What do others in your area think about this dispensary? How can you contact them?
MMJ-Guide.Com will be my very first foray into the world of website building. No HTML classes, no web design degree. Just a little bit of help and a lot of personal motivation on a subject very close to me, combined with a fascination for website design.
I am teaching myself how to build this website, how to write code, the in's and out's of SEO, etc. Within this site, I plan to bring together everything you could possibly want and/or need to know about medical marijuana while learning how to build a website that brings YOU, the information seeker, exactly what you are looking for!
In addition to the typical Information, this site will also incorporate a forum, a section on MMj history, an image gallery, a marijuana / cannabis strains section (which currently includes the strains 8 Miles High, Albert Walker, Black Pineapple Kush, GDP Granddaddy Purple and, most recently added, Diesel mango Haze), a gourmet section (cooking, my 3rd favorite), my own personal medical marijuana blog and a huge resource section. Also, this will eventually be a site that everyone (this includes YOU) can help to mold and design. I hope to get a ton of feedback on the site as it gets up and running. It will be your tips and suggestions that will assist me in getting the final design and content of this website just right! It's about time!! MMJ-Guide.com - Your Medical Marijuana Resource.
