I agree with you! Finally off all meds (methadone, Lyrica, Cymbalta, Trilipix, Restoril to name a few) since December 2018. Have my medical marijuana card and nothing else other than supplements. Best decision ever!!!

Were your samples THC plus CBD? From what I understand the SUBLINGUAL (tinctures) take 10-15 min for initial effects; 30-60 min for maximum effects and last 2-4 hours. Salves last 45-60 minutes; vaporization lasts 2-4 hours. INGESTION (ie: Capsules) take 60-90 minutes for initial effects and 2-3 hours for maximum effects with the duration of effects being 6-12 hours. It tends to be an individual process to find what works for you. More is not always better… your dispensary should be able to help you.

Powered through – good for you! Over the years my son was married and grandkids arrived. The grandkids didn’t understand (as they got older) why grandma slept so much. So happy I am off all meds now… still had chronic pain while on meds so I was always hopeful to try another route.

It is okay – I’m getting there. Takes so much determination not to give up… everyone dealing with chronic pain knows it is a tough road to travel… and a long journey to boot!

Took me 6 mo to figure out… the 3rd dispensary I tried had a Dr on staff. Basically, no set formula just trial and error…

For many years I spent probably 60-70% of my day in bed. Pain meds made me tired. My quality of life diminished. Socially, I pulled way back because when others saw my pain they were helpless and I wanted to hide. I tried to continue to work and was in such a brain fog. Fortunately, I had an office and would shut my door and rest on the floor. I pushed thru exercise classes and would get painful spasms that would draw attention. I explained that they would pass and one day the instructor said in front of everyone that I freak her out. I stopped. I’ve never had such pain in my life as I’ve had from shingles. I was 56 at the time and am now 71. The saddest thing is there are many worse off than I am. I fake my way thru social events. Smile, laugh and act like I’m enjoying myself when in reality I just want to be home and in bed.

I purchased Lavender Blossoms with CBD salve and CBD oil drops (400) on-line from LAVENDER BLOSSOMS – both help decrease my pain. Also use HARLEQUIN drops which has THC (I have a Medical Marijuana Card) purchased from a dispensary. I use the drops topically on feet when needed and daily on the right side of my torso for chronic pain after SHINGLES in 2004. I’m off ALL PAIN medication after 15 years. I have better results using topically verses under the tongue.
