@kilnaboy74, welcome. I found these 2 study abstracts in a quick internet search. They are behind a paywall, so you have to purchase them to read the whole study unfortunately.
- Effects of Cannabinoids on Sleep and their Therapeutic Potential for Sleep Disorders: https://link.springer.com/article/10.1007/s13311-021-01013-w
- Cannabis for Restless Legs Syndrome: https://link.springer.com/chapter/10.1007/978-3-030-61663-2_13

Fellow members @merpreb @robinsonbeth @mari3gold4 and @ess77 may have further information and experiences with medical marijuana for restless legs.

Kilna, are you experiencing any side effects from the CBD/THC? What time of day do you take it?

@colleenyoung, my side effects for now are the high from THC. I take the two oils at 9 p.m. in addition to my prescription drugs, so that the high is in my system only when I sleep. I hope to tweak everything until I can completely eliminate the use of pramipexole. Thank you for your suggested readings.
