Medical Marijuana, Cbd Use

Medical Marijuana, Cbd Use

I am looking for alternative treatments for my AS. Will be on pure Medicare this next year and I’m very doubtful that I will be able to afford my humira. If you are using or have tried using either the full product or the cbd (without thc) I would love the feed back. Also if you know a source for good cbd, product descriptions are sketchy online. ( I can buy from 9 to 120 and they all read the same) thank you!

Morphine takes 10-15 minutes to start its kick in, and on a bad day, that is forever. One hit of pot and in less than a minute a whole lot of troubles are washed away. Can't overdose on weed, increases appetite, less puking, less headaches and back spasms, less stress for a bit. Not a cure, just a rapid response. My wife has taken CBD's for her allergies, and has had a multiple of good effects from it. Stay sane

I have tried CBD from 3 different companies. Only one product provided some anxiety relief. None of them helped with my pain. Plus they were pretty expensive at higher doses. I have since tried medical cannabis, which is legal in my state of Michigan and affordable. Different cannabis strains have different effects, but the pain relief can be significant with minimal psychoactive effects. The relief only lasts about 2 hours for me. However, I’m grateful to finally have some effective relief.

I have been using medical marijuana for almost 10 years. I started using it when I was diagnosed with Gastroparesis because I got down to 80 pounds. My doctor told me that it will help with appetite. Well, since then, I have also been diagnosed with Chronic Pancreatitis, Chronic migraine, Sjogrens Syndrome, Scleroderma, Fibromyalgia and a few more. My pain levels are through the roof. I moved to Arizona from Washington last July. Marijuana is legal in Washington, but down here in Arizona it is only legal medically. Anyhow, Cannabis has worked great for me as no one in Arizona will prescribe pain pills or any controlled substance for that matter. This state sucks and I will die here sooner than planned. Obviously everyone has a different chemical makeup so, what works for me may not work for you. I am actually writing a book about Cannabis use for Fibromyalgia.
