Screwed up my back, so have a room made while under the influence of muscle relaxers ... I'm gonna be out of commission for a while.
@Jade, hi, no worries. I do the edibles as needed - Jolly Ranchers, 10mg I believe. They don't upset my stomach or make me queasy like the oil does (and they don't taste like grass either, as the oil does no matter what they flavor it with it seems). One is enough to get me through without impairing me. I work in emergency services, so that's crucial, but my family is pretty sure I have mild PTSD from my job. You see enough bad, it's hard to shake off after a while. The topical stuff is more for pain, though I can't say I've seen any noticeable difference with it but that might just be me also.
I'm sorry to butt in, but I've been thinking of trying the CBD oil, for my anxiety.. but I can't have THC, (from experience a million yrs ago, when I was a teen), it actually brings on panic attacks.. Anymore info on the topical CBD oil? The Thyroid meds they have me on, are really making my anxiety go through the roof! Love your room, btw, Raven! :)
Theadora, in all honesty, I envy where you live. The US is so backward sometimes when it comes to stuff like this. So many studies have shown (actual studies, not BS) how cannabis actually helps with so many different medical conditions... I wish they would just legalize it and be done.The oil is unpleasant, even when flavored. I bought a tiny bottle of "French mocha" and it still tastes like grass, lol. But the edibles are completely different. I hope you find something that helps.
I wouldn't want to get you in trouble ;)
I've tried CBD oil through my Dr., unfortunately it didn't agree with my stomach. I've seen it work for people with Parkinson's, Fibromyalgia, seizures (a God sent for children) and many other ailments, Since all's legal in Canada now, I'll be looking into CBD edibles (and maybe throw in a touch of THC for fun - just kidding) LOL
Of all the different aches and pains I've had thanks to my job, the back is the worst. I have to do a lot of lifting, and it sucks. If I could, I'd send some, but I won't look good in orange and neither will you, lol. Have you tried topical CBD oil though? Got a friend who swears by it, I'm still on the fence. I know that the jolly ranchers work fairly well for calming me down (no THC, all perfectly legal, I'd get fired otherwise).
Wish I had some of those, lol. Travelling from Montreal to Vancouver Island tomorrow with chronic back pain...I think I'll have a stiff drink when I get home... :)
Thank you, Theadora. Saw the PT today, got three weeks of visits, lol. I'll be alright. Dude, those muscle relaxers are no joke though, lol. I'm not taking another one unless I absolutely have to, they knocked me for a loop for two days.
Me too! Hope you feel better soon! :)
Thank you, Ellie665.
Great Job! I want to live here!
