Illinois is one of our states that has legalized medical marijuana use for 39 illnesses including severe Fibromyalgia. I am asking my fellow flat landers and other legalized states if it has helped relieve your fibromyalgia pain and other symptoms. The more specific you be I'd very much appreciate it.
for me it helps nausea and anxiety and pain
Certainly. The application process for a card Ran about $125. If you can smoke lesser expensive flower, you may not be spending a fortune each time you'd go. Personally, I could not afford my regular Rx's without insurance, however, with medical cannabis I am weaning off of a few. I compare the regular cost of those Rx's to the cost of a trip to my dispensary. The cost of the natural medical cannabis is less in the long run. I actually also get real relief.
I use Indica THC and just a capsule of CBD oil. I don't think there is a brand that is best. I have tried different brands and types and they all have helped me. I don't think the CBD made from Hemp sold by Amazon is the same. It can't be sold on-line because you must be 21 in order to purchase it. I don't need a prescription here. I spend less on it than I did for copays for pain and other meds. There are different strains of THC. I like the Indica because it helps so much with relaxation, anxiety and mood. Hope you can try it to see if it works for you.
I have used CBS pain relief gel which also had menthol and arnica. That was effective for sore wrists ( I'm a prolific knitter) and some on temples and under ears can help with overall pain perception. I have compared this to a cream with acetimetiphen, and the CBD gel has a milder, but longer lasting effect. I would not use it to treat a flare or migraine, I see is as being good for daily use to keep your system calm and prevent stress build up, tension, and help you to move more and thus take better care of your body. If my jobs weren't so attention- critical I might try including edibles as well. But for now, prescription drugs and pain gel do the trick.
I live in Oregon and marijuana is legal. I use CBD 30 mg and THC 30 mgs. CBD is the painkiller part of marijuana and THC is the part that creates a high. I take THC because it makes the CBD work better, it helps my mood a lot and does not make me drugged or high. It works for me. CBD taken alone works very well
For pain relief. Any questions let me know.
