THC is the pain killer. You should get a 50/50 tincture.

I mentioned to my acupuncturist that I had previously used THC/CBD combinations for pain relief.

Because I was worried the pain management doctor would frown upon THC use. Our state has just recently legalized medical marijuana but no access yet, I stopped the THC a couple of months ago and now use only CBD. I have yet to get an appointment with the pain management doctor – referral was sent in a month ago.

The acupuncture doctor said I probably wasn’t taking nearly enough CBD. She said you can get CBD with more parts of the plant but still less than .3 or whatever the legal amount of THC allowed in CBD products that will work better than simply CBD with no THC. So I am going to show her what I’m taking and see what she recommends.

Large amounts of CBD will probably be very expensive – we shall see.
