Re: Medical Marijuana

My wife got me an electric blanket for Christmas a year ago. I don't turn it on very often since it sits beneath a rather heavy duvet and even the lowest setting to too much. But it really is nice to turn it on before I get into bed so that everything is nice and warm when I get in. For those occasi...

Re: Tramadol

Amanda, in addition to all of the comments above, if you give the DA a try and it still doesn't work, you should print out a copy of this paper and give it to your doctor. Many, if not most, doctors do not realize that opioids are a recognized treatment for RLS. If fact, I understand that even the F...

Re: Methadone and Gabapentin no longer working well

Deb, the pure CBD oils can be rather pricey (I know because my wife uses them). For a first time experiment, you might consider trying a 50/50 THC/CBD edible since they cost much less. The high level of CBD inhibits the intoxicating part of the THC, so most do not feel any sort of high feeling. The ...

Re: Epidiolex

Sorry that they are not available in NJ. I don't use CBD but my wife does. She prefers a product from Charolette's Web, but it is pricey. But it is available in our dispensaries in Colorado.

Re: Epidiolex

You will have to try it out in order to know. Epidolex is supposed to be almost totally CBD (they can't get all of the THC out). But if you are smoking a high CBD marijuana, you probably still have a high THC content. So it might not be the same. If you can get it, a CBD tincture would probably be c...

Re: Calm Legs

It took a bit of digging, but I finally found the ingredients in Calm Legs. It has a small amount of iron, Vitamin C, Vitamin E, Folic Acid, Magnesium, Vitamin B-12 and Valerian. Might help if you are deficient in one of these (except that 8mg of iron isn't going to do much), but certainly not somet...

Pending approval for CBD Oil by the FDA?

This announcement appeared today. It appears that the FDA may be on the verge of approving CBD oil for the treatment of pediatric epilepsy. Of course, once it is on the market, it will be used off label for many other purposes. Approval will also increase the pressure on the FDA to remove marijuana ...
