Re: sativa vs. indica

All Sativas are not created equally. It takes research, trial and error as it's very individual. I have also read about THCV. It is suppose to have antiepileptic effects as does CBD. However the THCV varieties are more scarce last time I looked.

Re: Medical Marijuana

Do any of you have burning sensations in your legs in addition to RLS? It seems I also have small fiber neuropathy besides RLS and the high CBD formula doesn't work for the burning sensation for me. I realize that this is a RLS board but I'm thinking there may be some people like me out there who ar...

Re: Is It RLS/WED? Or Something Else? Or both?

Thank you!!! This information is fabulous. I am going to look into Venous Insufficiency as soon as possible as it closely resembles my symptoms. Even if that's not the cause I will be one step further.

Re: How were you diagnosed with RLS?

Yes, it does help and I thank you and Beth for reaching out.The main problem I am having with trying to figure this out is because yes, the leg twitching or muscle pulling occur pretty exclusively between 1:00-2:00 however, I can (for a period of say 5 minutes time) use my will power and not move. I...

How were you diagnosed with RLS?

I am going to a Neurology specialist soon and would like to know how it was determined that you have RLS? I ask because when my symptoms 1st started I was sure it was RLS. However when burning began a few months later it overshadowed all the other symptoms. I went to a neurologist who did nerve test...

Re: Symptoms - Burning sensation

From my understanding burning is a symptom of Neuropathy. I have burning in my feet and legs and my neurologist did nerve testing and found nerve damage in my feet. I would pursue this even if it means a different neurologist. Many of the RLS symptoms overlap with Neuropathy and it can be quite conf...

Re: Magnesium........does it help??

UPDATE: Still using the MG. oil in a spray suspension. I use it at night, right before bedtime, either on one hip or the other, or on my tummy (always alternating). I have been using it about 6 weeks now, and have only had one night that I had to resort to using my old dose of Requip........still s...

Re: Medical Marijuana

Hi Pinkynose, I found that one time when I took the tincture at around 4:00 am I did wake up with kind of a hangover, but it was gone as soon as I had some coffee. That particular tincture has an ethanol base, which is 150 proof alcohol, so I think that's what it was. Now I don't take it past midni...

Re: Medical Marijuana

Have any of you tried an edible and ended up with the pain removed but unable to sleep? This is a worry of mine as I am not a good sleeper. Also, if you use a tincture that is high CBD low THC for sleep are you hung over the next day?

Re: Medical Marijuana

Thank you for all this great information! A note on storing MM products: According to "Cannabis Pharmacy" by Michael Baches in the chapter "Storing Cannabis," tinctures need to be refrigerated. However baked goods like cookies should be kept in the freezer to keep them from growi...

Re: Medical Marijuana

There is a 'cafe' in a street nearby to him. When we were there last year I didn't understand what it was about. We hope to go over next year. Are prescriptions or such required? Hmmm... don't know that my son would approve :roll: he'd be thinking that mum had lost the plot. Hi Polar Bear. I unders...

Re: Medical Marijuana

I am not quite finished with my week long MM evaluation, but since everyone else is discussion their experiences, this is a good time for me to get started. During the past year I have averaged between 4 and 4.5 hrs of sleep and never more than 6. I am currently on the Neupro patch and take 1200mg ...

Re: Medical Marijuana

Boy did I get the opportunity to put this to the test! Last night was the worst RLS I've had in a long while, by 2AM my legs were climbing up the walls. Valium didn't work, nyquil didn't work, magnesium didn't work... I finally downed four dropperfuls (equating to possibly 50 mg of CBD) of the oil ...
