Cannabis really helps with pain. I have taken the oil, 1000mg. Its trial and error for everyone. Be sire you buy it from a reliable place, not a gas station or on line sites. You just don't know what you'll get. A dispensary is the best.

Cannabis definitely helps me, I prefer the chews from the dispensary that are only 10mg a piece because I like to have functional days, I smoke before bed to help my body relax and get better sleep, It became legal here for oth medical and recreational. It's definitely better than alcohol and, or narcotics!
