@rwinney Thank You for your nice reply. It took me over a whole year of trials & errors finding the right Dispensary & certain styles of medicinal cannabis. At 1st I tried Vireo. Their products r very pricey & the discounts are not good. Not much of a savings. So I tried several other companies & glad I did & when I was totally sure I found the Right place, for great products & selection in styles & flavors or flavorless products I could take. I buy a bit of oil styled tincture that is mostly high CBD/dosage but what I use it for is to make my own cocoa butter mixture frames from my old glass cont. From their sublingual mints & I use those to soothe my aches & pains especially my left knee/need surgery sometime at end of year.
I do not take any pain meds with my medical cannabis. I take ibuprofen 4 break thru aches & muscular pains mostly. I been weaning myself off of a certain medication that caused more grief than help & this medication was given to me for way too long & not to mention that my pain mgmt Dr's told me it was to help me not go back to opiate medications. However with that being said it's something that should be treated differently on certain individuals on a case to case as opposed the longer u take it you will not go back to taking opiate pain killers. I came to his office. 5yrs. Ago asking to be taken off opiate pain meds because I was not getting enough releif from them. So my point being sometimes you have to remind Dr's that we are not addicts but pain sufferers. It's not 1 size fits all.
