Re: Microdosing on cannabis

If you are taking it to relieve pain and not to get high then I don't see a problem with it. To thine own self be true. As always in the Buddha's teachings intention is key. :anjali: :goodpost: I try taking it only every second or third day in order to avoid developing a tolerance and addiction.

If yes, then is taking a sleeping pill and some tylenol or advil also be a violation? Interesting you said 5mg and microdosing, but your chart shows <2.5 for micr...

Re: Microdosing on cannabis

THC is an intoxicant. Advil and tylenol are not. Sleeping pills could be depending on the intention of taking them. It isn't intoxicating in low doses and can have the same effect as pharmaceutical drugs without the many side effects. https://kindmedsaz.com/wp-content/uploads/2020/07/DosageChart-v2...

The main thing is to be happy with one's own practice and not to be so judgemental of others. Live and let live, right?

Re: Are the Mahāyāna "sutras" such as Shurangama Sutra real Buddha's teaching?

Greetings, Instead of asking that question, put the mahayana teachings into practice, and verify for yourself if they are real or not. Or, alternatively, put the Buddha's teachings into practice and discard such heresy. Each to their own, I guess. Metta, Paul. :) :lol: For you they could be heresy,...

Work to live not live to work. The most wealthiest and successful in the world will have to depart from their wealth too eventually.
