First off bare with me as I am not the best at starting threads.
I thought it was important to mark my 1 year anniversary of starting my trial of medical marijuana. My card will expire on June 15th so I'm still debating whether to renew it or not.
What I am hoping is others that have used or tried it will post their honest reviews and feelings about what helped what didnt help ect ect. So here's mine.
First off I am not the type to jump on the latest greatest new craze. But I am also not saying some wont get some benefits from using mm. But..for me it just doesnt seem to be working and throughout this year I've tried so many different blends and ways of taking it.
First off cbd oil. I think its excellent for anxiety issue as it does have a calming affect and as we all know pain can bring on anxiety which inturn tenses our muscles so I will give cbd oil a A+ in that department. But other then that I found no other form of relief. It did nothing for my nerve and mechanical pain. So to me it's more a C+
Tinctures..now I was told by the dispensary they promote sleeping. Ok being that was a major problem with me I gave it a try. Alot of them are alcohol base. Yes you can get non alcoholic types but still the best are based off a alcohol recipe. It did nothing..I used it both ways..alcohol and non alcohol..I tried it with and without also vaping. I had hoped it would replace vaping but it didnt. I give tincture a D- for helping me.
Smoking MM. Now first off we all know smoking anything is not healthy. But it is one of the best delivery systems for MM ..also vaping is a option but I found vaping extremely harsh..more harsh on my lungs then smoking. Yes I'd cough while smoking dry weed but I found when I vape it I end up coughing a good hour or more after it. I also wonder about the oils they use in those cartridge. I was told by the dispensary it's pure hemp oil but still ..water and oils dont mix. So if your vaping what happens to the oils residue in your lungs ? Maybe I think too much I dont know. Just wondering why it causes me to hack a lung up everytime I use it..I give smoking a C..I give vaping though it does hit you faster a D- for all the coughing it causes.
Now the blends. I'm no medical marijuana expert . So bare with me on this as some seem to know a whole lot more then me.
We have our daytime blends..low in thc ..higher in cbd.
Now my dispensary discouraged me from using any daytime blend that isnt atleast a 50/50 ratio..unlike what other have said my dispensary told me it must have atleast as much thc as cbd to work on pain..as the thc is the true pain reliever. So then when I see someone post the opposite I get all confused. But my dispensary is sticking to its guns on this subject. I have yet to find a daytime blend that helps with my pain without giving me a buzz so frustrating so I give my dispensary daytime blends a total F..I have used 1 called Jet fuel that wasnt as buzzy but still I felt weird on it.
Night time blends or the ones with the higher thc. Now I've use those only at bedtime. I found 2 kinds that I have mainly used both from a company out of Egypt. I try to think of it more on the terms like a sleeping pill. Only 2 blends have helped both at times are hard to come by. One is called Or ..the other eran almog. Not that they help so much with my pain as I still can feel it I'm just so bed locked and unfocused that I have no other choice but to close my eyes. What it does do is give me maybe 2 or 3 hours extra sleep. So I mainly use it for getting the little extra sleep. So I give night time.blends a C. Only for the extra sleep
Now I also seem to react differently then most..MM make my stomach turn. I get a heavy feeling in my gut I do not get the munchies. I will say though unlike prescription sleeping pill which can give you a hangover the day after taking one ..MM does not. I wake with no hangover feeling after using it so that's a plus..but I do worry about possible falls if I need to use the bathroom soon after vaping it. That is something we all need to be concerned about.
Ok I think I've rambled enough here.
I would love to hear from others on MM and what has and hasnt worked..As I said my cards about to expire and still on the line on whether to renew it.
