Re: Increasing REM sleep

Seems like high amount of THC can decrease REM sleep but once I started taking more CBD again REM sleep came back.

The thing with REM sleep is: it is not that necessary as some people believe it is.

Re: Referral to medical marijuana dispensary experts

I was given a sort of medical leave for half a year or a year, I forget how long. I didn't have to pay tuition for that time and it didn;t count toward the max 7 years or whatever it was that I had to be finished in. But there was a limit to how much of that the university would give. The system he...

Re: Referral to medical marijuana dispensary experts

QyX. I'm so sorry. I think you have the most severe RLS of anyone who posts on this forum. I can't imagine how you got through medical school. Are you finished, in residency program? How long to go before you practice as an independent doctor? I am not going through anything. I can't continue medic...

Re: Referral to medical marijuana dispensary experts

I just have horrible RLS ... it takes a few hours, even when vaped, until Cannabis let's me sleep.

The overhang improved today but there is no way I could fall asleep within 10 to 30 minutes. It is more like 2 to 4 hours for me :-(

Re: Referral to medical marijuana dispensary experts

I was told to take CBD in the morning and in the evening. Recently I took about 10 mg CBD in the morning and around 20 to 25 mg in the evening. I have to re-evaluate the dosage and the time when I take it. CBD has quite a significant impact on me, but only when taken together with THC. The eliminati...

Re: Referral to medical marijuana dispensary experts

What is really making the difference for me was adding more CBD ... I added so much that it was way way too much and suddenly I can sleep for 20 hours straight .... A simple comparison about how I feel Marijuana works for me: CBD is the bomb material and when I inhale a strain rich in THC, it makes ...

Re: Tolerance to THC?

Anyone have problems with tolerance to THC and what did you do about it? Wantok I increased my CBD dose to balance out my endocannabinoid system. My prescribing doctor told me from the very beginning how important it is to take enough CBD to keep the system balanced. I was a bit ignorant of that an...

Re: Cannabis

...This justifies the usage of Cannabis based medicine in my situation big time. Given the circumstances and that I have not responded to any alternative treatments, this is almost a miracle. A lot of us have found this to be true, few to none of standard sleeping pills seem to work for us with RLS...

Re: Cannabis

You so deserve this. Thanks! Well, I got another night of great sleep, so it really seems that concept is working. However there are still many details that need to be determined. For example a) how much CBD should I take? b) should I split the dose or should I take everything in the evening or at ...

Re: Cannabis

So I maybe ... maybe (!) made a huge personal discovery. In the past 3 days I started to sleep extremely well and especially yesterday I slept better than I've slept in the past 3-4 years, maybe even longer. The experience was absolutely incredible and I could instantly tell that some major changes ...

Re: Medical Marijuana

Hi Steve,

CYP2D6 is not a gene but rather an enzyme that is part of the cytochrome P450 complex. I guess what you mean are the genes that encode CYP2D6?

Re: Insomnia

Carbamazepine helped me a few years with my insomnia. Unfortunately I could already tell after a few months that I was developing a tolerance and after 3 1/2 years Carbamazepine was not effective anymore. I feel like the insomnia associated with RLS is the hardest problem to solve. Cannabis might be...

Re: Finding a doctor who can prescribe Opiates

Hey, Benzodiazepines like Valium (Diazepam) or Xanax (Alprazolam) can offer short-term relief for RLS but I am not aware of one single case where those drugs worked longer than a few weeks. The only Benzodiazepine we know who does have significant long-term effects is Clonazepam (Klonopin, Rivotril)...

Re: Cannabis

Okay, so it doesn't seem like "Bakerstreet" is working out for me and yesterday I went back to my usual combination. While Bakerstreet seems to make me tired and sleepy, it seems to take a long time until I finally sleep and the next day I still felt a negative impact on my mood & ener...
