Cannibas seems to work for me

Post by paul9298 »

Am Uk based. Since being dignosed with RLS about 4 years ago Ive really been struggling to get a good night sleep.

Been on various meds from the Dr which have had little effect . Been through the CBD products which also didnt have any effect.

Last 3 months Ive been smoking a few drags of weed before bed and eating a bit of space cake. Ive got to say the improvement has been nothing short of a miracle.

Im getting a much better sleep and its definately having an effect where as nothing else has.

Am keen to hear if anyone else had the same results?

paul, many of us have experienced the same sort of results to MJ that you have. The CBD products often don't do very much but THC might be one of the most effective sedatives available for RLS induced insomnia. Inhaled (or vaped) THC is almost instantly effective but wears off soon whereas the edible versions can take an hour to kick in, but their effect lasts for several hours. The combination can lead to something close to a full night's sleep.

For those of you who use Medical Marijuana in the US and don't live a legal recreational marijuana state, are doctors approving medical marijuana for RLS?

That will depend on the state that you are living in. Some states who allow medical marijuana have imposed a lot of red tape and limited it to certain conditions & indications like epilepsy, cancer and multiple sclerosis.

You have to look up the individual regulations of the state you are currently living in.
