Has Anyone Out There Had Any Luck With Medical Marijuana?

Has Anyone Out There Had Any Luck With Medical Marijuana?

Because I had not had any luck with conventional medicines for my fibro in the last 2 years, I'm wondering if any one out there has had luck with medical marijuana?

I Live in Washington State where Marajuana is Legal. I have been using it to treat my Fibro and RLS and Diabetic for 3 years and I will have to say that the only way I can use it is to smoke it There are so many different ways edibles candy oils list goes on or if you do or you dont to want Thc or without CBD. I Use this so i can replace 2 of my 4 Dalaudid pills a day. I dont have to wait for the marajuana to take effect its usually instant pain releief where the pills take up to 1 hour and the pain gets so bad, That i cant wait for a hour. So what im trying to say is if you are in a area that this is legal , go into a shop and talk to the people they are very knowlegable about what would be best for you . Since I have used it I also no longer have my Diabetis...Which could also be helped from this,, I have All of my Dr's following me very close. I have to say my pain level is very high but when i use my Green Meds as I call it my life is a lot less painful.

Every once in a while I will take a hit when my son is around and yes it does help! :-) I've concluded that it doesn't really help with the pain but it does help me get my mind off my problems and the depression I feel because of the pain. Does that make sense?

I have found leaf to be incredibly helpful though I've never tried oil. I can't take most prescription drugs due to sensitivity and allergies. None that I can take has helped. And then came medical marijuana. I can't take MM as often as I'd like due to cost (I can't work so my budget is severely limited) but it is amazing.
