    The 5:1 CBD:THC MMJ continues to alleviate neuropathy and the SPS muscle stiffening.

    Haven't notice it helping the damn back pain though...

    Still in a flare, so no exercise. Also wrenched my back lifting a wc up in a store 5 days ago. Ouch.
    Not sure why you were lifting a wheelchair up (up???) but that would be enough to wrench backs for many people. Though I haven't tried lifting a wheelchair more than a couple of inches off the ground (very briefly), I've had some back injuries that took months, even years, to get better, but the most acute pain did level off after a while. It wasn't always days though. Sometimes it took weeks.

    But I'm not in great physical shape, and you're probably much fitter--so maybe your wrenched back will unwrench itself sooner. Hope so.

    I just received my MMJ with a higher ratio of 1:1 CBD to THC. So it has a higher concentration of THC.

    I will try it next few days when I can stay home and DH is close by in case of unpleasant psychoactive side effect.

    I tried .33ml of the 1:1. No side effects.

    Just tried .40ml for noon dose. Hoping can tolerate .44 to get better stiffening Control. Will see how the .40 goes

    Sadly, no.
    That's a shame about the cost for the service dog! How are you and Karma getting along?

    I have a neighbor with a service dog. I don't know her well enough to ask but I'd like to know just what services Karma can do?

    Alerting you to possible dangers no doubt but I believe there are other ways a service dog is helpful?

    .40ml of 1:1 has no side effects. Will try .44 next time I can stay home for six hours. Today was easy:TS Philippe washed out my driveway last night, so, am trapped at home u til it dries out hopefully tonight.

    That’s the third time since IRMA that a tropical system did that. Never happened before in 30 years here. If it occurs again, might have to engineer draining system. My theory is that Irma completely saturated the land. Then, two more systems came through within 6 weeks, and the ground was still too saturated to handle the deluge it couid ordinarily handle.

    I am finding this educational. Thank you. I know nothing about this stuff. It sounds like you are using an edible?

    It is an oil you squirt under your tongue, a tincture.
    I get it from Surterra.
    I think MMJ is legal in Mass, right?how about Rhode Island. Each state has its own rules.
    It has cut my neuropathy by half. And reduced spasticity. I just hope it keeps working.

    I am on 5:1 past 2 weeks since the 1:1 was no better than 5:1. So, will save it if I run out of 5:1
    It still gives me substantial relief!. Funny, pain starts to reoccur and I look at the clock, and sure enough, I am five minutes away from dose time. This is no placebo. My husband agrees since he has seen me go through a variety of pain management approaches and this is the only one that truly helps.

    A person with MS about 50 miles away that my MMJ doc had put me together with via email, began MMJ two days ago. She got tremendous pain relief the same day with MMJ. Nothing else had helped.

    We must vote out local politicians who block opening dispensaries locally for MMJ. Ignorant, self righteousness. May they be struck by MS.
