    Good research summary on the effectiveness of THC in Cannibis on nerve pain. Worth reading for sure.

    Illinois law encouraging use MMJ for pain before using opioids. Such a breath of fresh air.

    Saw the MMJdoc for the 210 day required check in by law in florida, 2 weeks ago.

    She rec trying higher THC to CBD ratio...I was using 1:1 sublingual tincture oil,

    She recommended trying to 4 to 1 ratio, and, if no bad reaction, she prefers the 9 to 1 ratio. The 4 to 1 ratio marijuana can create some activating symptoms, such as anxiety. The 9 to 1 ratio with an increase of other features as well, can make the person relaxed and drowsy even.

    The 4 to 1 ratio did work somewhat better than the one to one, but it did create a feeling of tension.

    So, last night at my 4 PM dose I tried the 9 to 1 ratio. It did make me very relaxed. I would not be able to drive on it. But not so relaxed that I fell asleep. So that was good. I am not sure whether it created additional benefit for spasticity. I will try again tonight to give it another chance.

    I am grateful to the voters of Florida for making medical marijuana available. Desperate for for pain control, I tried it a year ago. In 45 minutes of my first dose, I have gotten substantial pain relief. I am now hoping to get relief from spasticity.

    Last night I tried to skip the 9:1 ratio of THC to CBD because I didnt like feeling so relaxed late afternoon. The 1:1 ratio is less effective in pain control and spasticity, but I used it instead of the 9:1

    But,I liked not feeling Uber relaxed.


    Will keep trying the approach. Maybe use the 9:1 on some nights,not others.

    This continues to be my strategy re the 9:1 vs the 1:1

    LIkely will not return to the 4:1, or at least for now. I donít like the mild anxiety I felt on it. Couldíve been a coincidence. But it wasnít that much better than the 1:1.

    Yesterday I was 25 minutes late for my end of the afternoon dose. The pain began to creep in, that’s what reminded me I had forgotten it. This stuff really reduces pain. I wish everyone could try it with SPS— weird that some places you can, some you cant, ...

    This link shows that in states with legal MMJ, the opiod prescriptions fell.
