I smoked it at night because I can't sleep due to the pain even though I'm on a lot of sleeping medications but it makes me completely Stuck on Stupid and exhausted and I'm already exhausted during the day so I can't really smoke it so I'm trying to figure out other stuff too I tried CBD oil CBD cream that you put on your body the mouth drops smoking it and bathe but when my nausea is so bad and my nausea meds aren't working I'll take a hit during the day just to calm it down but like I said it makes me so tired I try and do what I can around the house but I can't really do much so I end up sitting on the couch or in my bed all day because the pain is just so bad especially if I get up and move around more
