@deankmn, You no longer need a prescription to purchase any cannabis product in CA…..just have to be 21 years of age with a CA driver's license or approved ID. At least, I think these are the requirements. I am sure you can find out more of the particulars on the CA state website. https://cannabis.ca.gov/cannabis-regulations/
At some dispensaries, if you do seek and receive a physician's referral, you get a discount. Don't quite know why or who is paying who? Hope that helps. Good night. Chris

@deankmn, @mikecranny, @johnbishop So sorry. I was researching an artist and didn't pay attention. Thanks for covering for me John. And for you, @deankmn I can see that you have a specific agenda and a path to lead the way. My opinion is that the medical cannabis industry has come a long way. Yes, the regulatory program in CA is more developed than that in MN. However, that process was not done in a compassionate manner. After the recreational vote and subsequent implementation, all products had to be recycled for regulatory issues and often repackaged. So for about 6 months, we, as medical clients, suffered inadequate, if any, inventory. Dispensaries in unincorporated areas were driven away and cities immediately tacked on new taxes that made the prices skyrocket. It has settled somewhat now. Keep searching and then keep sharing so that we can learn from you. Have a lovely evening. Chris

@deankmn, On the MN medical cannabis site, http://www.leaflines.com, you may get some answers to the topical dosages available and the qualifying conditions for the prescription. The interactive relationship between CBD and THC is explained quite well. So, it may be that what you are looking for is available in the MPLS and ST PAUL area. Check back in with us and share your findings. May your day have joy and happiness. Chris

@deankmn, Hi there. I almost lost you. It is best to use the @ plus the recipients identifier so that your response goes directly to that person as well as the general feed. And now, I apologize for recommending a product without knowing your location. I also now live in MN. My daughter lives in a San Diego. That is how I do it. I think MN has topicals of some type available with a medical cannabis prescription. I will check on that for you. Have a pain free day. Be safe and protected. Chris

@gfisher, @margottaylor , Great feedback and good for you for giving cannabis a try. I am now doing that same night dose…. a 2:1 CBD/THC tincture and then lights out. For me that not only keeps the pain in check, it also reduces anxiety and quiets my mind so I can have a refreshing sleep. Topicals are another matter……I have tried several different options and have settled on a 3:1 CBD/THC Papa & Barkley Releaf Balm especially when I have needles as well as tingling. They produce other dosages and this seems to work best for me whether during the day or at bedtime. Here is the link. https://papaandbarkley.com/product/releaf-balms . You can also see the location of all the P&B retail dispensaries on the website. As more research leads to more product options and/or my Small Fiber Neuropathy (SFN) decides to become progressively worse, I will give others a try. Have a lovely, pain-free day. Chris

Your story is very close to mine, especially the issues with arms and hands. I also chose the cervical surgery and the placement of spacers. It took three months to get out of the neck brace and then lots of physical therapy. At least I didn’t spend my nights sitting on the edge of the bed in tears because of the pain. My guess is that the spacers have reduced my issues by 50 percent. There is still nerve damage that could not be reversed and some nerves just take forever to heal. And best wishes to you. Thanks for sharing. Chris

@windwalker, Good Morning. No, I only wish I was an artist. I am awed by the creative and talented folks who add beauty to our lives. I owned a gallery and was an interior designer. What a great chapter in my life. I use vape capsules, and tinctures as well as topicals…..all from the medical cannabis section of the dispensary. All of my solutions contain both CBD and THC at different levels depending on how and what I medicate. I have been exploring cannabis solutions for chronic pain for several years with the knowledge and cooperation of my neurologist and primary care provider (pcp). Be well and safe from harm. Chris
