Has anyone tried this yet. I got approved but am still leary

Hi,
I've used MM for just over a year. Advise using edibles or oils with High CBD, low THC. Otherwise, you my get high, which will distract you from the pain, but not provide the relief that CDB does.

@ayankeeinnm… my CBD oil is 1,000 mg: I haven’t tried the vape yet, I don’t want to get high it scares me. I. To do 2 puffs hold for three seconds and exhale: I just took an Ativan 0:5mg second one today. I’m having a bad day with depression and crying

I am asking for advice having never used M. I have been recomended MM for chronic back pain from scoliosis, stenosis etc. specifically an oil to use with a vape. My question is what is the type of relief offered by CBD if it differs from the "distraction" from pain attributed to THC? CBD doesn't prevent pain from occurring does it? Ideally I would like an analgesic effect with no high and minimal side effects.

CBD in my experience is great. I used it for high anxiety while I was withdrawing from Tramadol. It relieved my muscle tremors as well. I think it helped my pain, but that was not my reason for using it.

I used CBD Living Water which was easier for me than drawing it into my lungs. Also, it was active immediately so no waiting. It did NOT make me feel high at all, just calm. I liked it because it worked and I could still function normally.

What is CBD Living Water? And where can it be purchased? This depression is doing a number on me. Thank you

Hi, @cdcc — really sorry to hear yesterday was a bad day. Hoping today is looking up a bit so far.

Financially I'm experiencing problems right now and I have to taper off marijuana. Any suggestions on how to effectively / over how long, to taper off pot? I currently smoke a bowl a day for sleep. Any suggestions for weaning off really appreciated.

Not a good day. I awoke with anxiety and crying then diarrhea. Came downstairs took Ativan waited an hour then CBD old, no THC: I’ve cried off and on all day and it’s only early afternoon. My husband made me take two small puffs on the vape. Feel somewhat calmer, no high. I just want God go take me, I can’t keep up like this

Please don't forget your second wind – it's coming – it always does. We have a saying, "think good and it will be good." There are supplements that work, including, if you live in a legal state, medical marijuana, I highly recommend for mood and sleep, if you can go that route, three puffs of "True OG." or "OG Kush" and you'll be relaxed and smiling again! Feel better, ALWAYS PICTURE YOURSELF IN YOUR MIND AND SPEAK THAT YOU ARE HAPPY AND WELL, even if you're not at the moment, just smiling improves mood. Many are in your shoes, please hang in! Good things are going to happen to you!

We do have MM, I have CBD oil no thc, and a vape I did two puffs not large as it makes me cough so bad. Still feeling down. What is True OG. Or OG Kush. This is all new to me , I have no idea why thupis is lasting as long as it is. Lyrica took over my system now withdrawling from it for 5 months has taken me down. Iv3 I’ve over 30 lbs and I only weighed 128

My story (short version) – I had SEVERELY PAINFUL!!! lower back sciatica a year ago, was put on opioids by Doctor, (hydrocodone, etc) (See? Solve it with a pill is the modus operandi" for many dr's) and a friend in al legal MM state gave me some MM she takes for glaucoma. She uses edibles, no smoking, makes cookies out of it, per her doctor, mixes it in the butter. Anyway, I took 3 hits and the MM did more than about 5 bottles of opioids did!!! I of course, immediately stopped the opioids and used the MM. MM comes in strains. If you can legally get it, get strains called "Indica" and, specifically, the strains "OG Kush" and "True OG" and, after 3 hits, or bites of a cookie, and you will smile, laugh and then lull into a dreamy sleep for the night. With no pain at all.

I had your day last week. Lots of pain led to lots on anxiety which led to sleeplessness, etc. Two years ago a friend with steadily worsening MS and I made a mutual anti suicide pact. It's helped both of us.

A little better just took another Ativan as anxiety was hitting and I don’t want it to go into a crying depression. Made phone calls to lawyers ref Lyrica class action law suits, some one needs to pay for how this has changed my life for the worse

I am @marield65 and i was on Lyrica. Had bad paranoia and hallucinating. Got off it right away. Sorry you are having depression from it. That should not be. Were you on it for a long time? There is so many meds I cannot take. I am on Vicodin for severe back pain and could get a liscence for MM, but what do I do when I travel? One day at a time…..
