Medical Marijuana

Medical Marijuana

I see that many have been helped by using medical marijuana. I am in london uk, and I know that we recently had laws changed and allowance of medical marijuana but I dont know if it is available for fibromyalgia? I wouldnt have a clue on how to go about being prescribed it, from where, how?? My biggest problem is pain, at the moment, I am in a cycle of being unable to sleep because I am in so much pain, I cant move without being in extreme pain.. and wish to just close my eyes and not feel it… read more

Cdb doesn't work for everyone, personally I use to use "smoke" as a means of pain relief, thc is the only thing that seems to work, in saying that it doesn't get rid of the pain it's just easier to distract you from it, I gave it up as I became depressed and dispointed in myself on it, I want to make something of myself, distracting yourself from the pain helps alot and you can do that without the "smoke", it can be very addicting and when used wrong can lead to abuse, you should only ever use a drug not abuse, it's very easy to become dependent and unproductive on it, I gave it up recently and while I've been in 100x more pain but I've got alot more college work done, IT WILL AFFECT YOUR JOB, SOCIAL LIFE AND LIFE IN GENERAL! be very careful on it because if you become dependent on it your addicted, it's very easy to build tolerance which in turn means you need more, try doing things that make you happy and things your able to do, I know it's hard but life is short and you don't want to miss a thing! After a while days blend into months and before you know it you realise you don't remember half of it, tis what made me depressed, determination and making yourself happy is the best thing for fibro. From someone who has experience with this matter and someone that nothing else but thc works, your better off without it.

I just asked this same question. I started the ball rolling this morning. I first had to go to a doctor who has a contract with the state of Illinois with proof of my fibro diagnosis from the other docs. They drew blood for a basic CBC and after I discuss that with the doc I get fingerprinted and get my picture taken for my "card". When I receive my card I can go to the dispensary to get what they recommend. I am hoping this will help.

Cannabis is very good fr pain,,but CBS oil works as good w no high. There are oils for pain,and sleep they work for me! Find a cbd store near you, they are in all 50 states(not a head shop,or novelty store). 3 days on CBS were the best 3 days Iv had for many years!!
Good luck w your pain
