    Default Started Medical Marijuana Today-- blog

    My medical marijuana arrived today! It is called Calm by Surterra. It is 12.5 CBD plus 1 THC. This CBD is from the MJ plant, not hemp, thus stronger than Edens Cure which is hemp based.

    It is a starting place. As I see it's benefits, or not, I gradually increase the dose. After a month, if little effect, can switch to a higher THC dose.

    I Just took first dose. Takes 45 minutes to work, and for some, it takes a week of dosing to build up effective level.

    Had an optical migraine this morning, so glad not after the dose, cuz I would've thought it was due to the MMJ.

    Is MMJ legal in your state?

    Will post.

    So far, so good. No neuropathy yet. It usually fires up mid afternoon, before 4 pm. Muscles feel less stiff. Let's see how the next few days go.

    Medical mmj is oK in MA but has taken 2 years since it passed as a referendum question.

    I had an excellent afternoon, zero neuropathy!! That's huge! Plus, I was able to stand up to do kitchen stuff, spent no time lying down, less time sitting. My couch no longer looks like a day bed!

    Sure hope this continues and that it's not a fluke.
    ...just took second dose, you take 1-3 doses per day.

    I took a dose at 6:45 a.m. But am unsure if it was not enough as it's hard to measure the eye dropper. And forgot to hold the med under tongue 20 sec before swallow,..Still learning. Anyway, i swam 25 minutes 45 minutes after dose. Let's see how the morning goes with neuropathy.

    The true test with be the 12:45 dose as afternoons are my worst re neuropathy and standing. I will be better about cautious dosing and remembering to hold it under tongue 20 sec before swallow.

    Medical marijuana has been legal for quite a few years in MAssachusetts. It is recreational use of marijuana that passed a referendum question.

    Yesterday after the noon and 6 pm dose I did well. Woke up today at 4:30 am and am doing well. They said it takes 2-3 days to build up in body. This is less than 48 hours. Very encouraged. And I am on the lowest doses.

    Will swim this morning and see if I do better than after yesterday's swim. Exercise seems to trigger neuropathy.
