Has Anyone Tried Marijuana For Pain/sleep? And Not The Medical Kind...

Has Anyone Tried Marijuana For Pain/sleep? And Not The Medical Kind...

Just wondering if anyone has tried marijuana to help with the pain and to help them sleep at night. I'm not talking about the medical kind! I have NEVER used recreational drugs but I am willing to try a few puffs of a joint to see if it helps. Any input? NO judgement please!

I am 55 and know some people who have had used recreationally and have been bright folks, they are college educated, raised families, and use and find it still soothing as they reach their 5th and 6th decade. I have read some research which seemed to indicate that mj may interfere with dream cycles and may not be as helpful for sleep as we might hope. Indicas are better for pain while sativas are for other purposes, if you go to the web site Leafly you may learn lots about different strains, how they effect people. what proportion of CBD to THC is in each strain and what might be available in your area.

I have to. I am a daily smoker. I am on a combination of lyrica and cymbalta as well but I am prescribed nothing for pain. I am in so much pain due to the fibro that when I smoke it doesn't make me feel "high" like it normally would someone. Instead, it relaxes me...inside and out. It helps physically as well as mentally. It helps my anxiety and pain level. When I smoke at night, I can stretch and relax and I feel like I have a better night. When I smoke in the morning, I am able to fully wake up my body and stretch after waking up so stiff. It helps me mentally wake up and gather my thoughts and plan out the day. I highly recommend cannabis...go green 💚

I tried med MJ. I tried tincture under the tongue, oil, and vape. I tried high and low and combos different frequencies. Vaping even at low temps made me cough as I have asthma and I used only dispensary devices and cartridges. My son made some butter and cookies for me. I did not notice a difference in the pain but my husband said I was going crazy over a show on donuts.

It is expensive and not covered by insurance although even non-THC CBD hemp stuff is also expensive and it is also useless but is being tried by desperate people who want to stay legal in places with laws against better products.

There are many strains. All are not available in every geographic area. It is worth a shot even if it helps you sleep for a bit. Even pharmaceuticals do not work for everyone. We have learned that opioids are not the way to go as time has gone on with this condition.
