Has anyone tried Cannabis tinctures?

Has anyone tried Cannabis tinctures?

I’ve smoked and vaped marijuana but it really hurts my lungs and make my shortness of breath (lovely fibro symptom ) twice as bad. Edibles take up to 2 hours to work so you really have to experiment with it, and all edibles are different. I would like to try Cannabis tinctures, but I don’t know if they sell them at dispensary’s. If I can find one that doesn’t make me paranoid or put me to sleep, I would like to try it for my anxiety.

How long it took for your diagnose?

How long it took for your diagnose?

I've been having fibromyalgia symptoms for a few years, only been to two doctors but they say I'm healthy because my blood tests and other exams are normal. My mother was diagnosed with fibromyalgia in 2011, but it took her 5 years and a lot of doctors.

I would like to know how was your journey and how long it took to be diagnosed.
