    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.

    Apparently there has been a spike in ER visits in Colorado from ingestion of MMJ and marijuana, especially edibles, resulting in severe nausea and vomiting.

    I will follow this news carefully.

    The theory is that it takes awhile for edibles to impact the user so they keep eating it, thus taking in too much THC. Whereas smoking it creates quick effect and user stops as the effect takes effect quickly. (Grammar police?)

    Having been struggling with nausea, perhaps it is the MMJ, and not the Baclofen and Lactulose that are the culprit. ...will try to skip the MMJ (ouch) and see what happens.
