Even medical practice goes through fads and hysterias. This one will also pass, eventually.

Pot always put me fast to sleep when I was young so I have some hope. TekFreek is I think doing similar though he will smoke which I will not. I actually like smoking but as the body approaches 80 the cardiac and pulmonary problems make it unwise.
So let us know how it works. I will share as well.
Pot seriously works for sleep and you do not feel drugged the next day. Indica strains are better than sativa for sleep and relaxation. I get mine at NuWu as sour grape gummies. They don't taste horrible. The brand is Wana. I take one at bedtime a couple nights a week. Cool thing, they also lower your intraocular pressure so it is less likely you will get glaucoma as well.

Smoking pot will make me high but edibles don't seem to have the same effect. I understand why the tourists want to be able to smoke it. I tried taking 2 a couple times and I still didn't get high.

I wear a fitbit that tracks my sleep. I have years of data saved. I can tell the nights I take pot just by looking at my sleep cycle. The biggest difference is I am much less restless and I don't wake up as much. It's pretty dramatic. It doesn't always make me sleep longer but the sleep I get is better quality.

Probably worth trying!

I paid 40 dollars for 4 small pieces of chocolate. I get that taxes and such add to the cost, but 40 bucks for that little bit is excessive. However, I do thing it was just that particular store.
I would just look it up on various store websites but I am fairly ignorant when it comes to marijuana. All I really know is it smells like skunks farting on a tire fire. I know some of you self medicate and surely have the requisite knowledge. If so, please share where to buy and what to buy.

Thanks.
Here's the deal. All CBD is NOT the same. If you buy hemp oil there is no THC in it and that's the stuff that makes you high. You can buy this anywhere. If it has THC, you have to go to the pot shop.

Most experts agree that it's the stuff with THC that has the greatest effect on nausea and migraines. However it also seems to me that all people are not affected the same way. To figure out what works best for your wife, I would buy one bottle of each, with and without THC. After she tries both, you will know. If it turns out she needs the one with THC, she will be able to regulate her dose by the drop. In time she will know exactly how much to take to relieve her symptoms without getting high.

They changed their opiate regulations just last year. That is why state laws changed Jan 1. They wil inevitably change their regulations again.

Try the emergency room. My wife was having extreme pain in her neck and her doc was out of town. Doc in the ER gave her a bunch of stuff. Hydrocodone, a muscle relaxer, a pain killer in a big patch to put on the area (Lidocaine?), and another I can't remember. She likes the ER.

And it solved the problem - after a couple of days. It was bad.
What was the cause of your wife's neck pain? I have never had pain like this before.

I bought a one use vape pipe with CBD no THC in it.
I would like to get some with a small amount of THC but I get random drug tests (I work under Federal Law)
and can't take a chance. I'm not sure which level would be safe if any.

Also some CBP and THC lotion. Apparently the lotion can have THC since it does not go into the blood stream.

Too early to tell if it works since the neck pain seems to come and go.

I have 3 bulging discs in my neck from the wreck. I might have to start taking this stuff. I do not want to take opiates or anything like them. I really hate taking pills of any kind. There's at least no adverse reactions to cbd and thc.

An excellent article re CBD. I usually get more of a high from smoking. One moderate hit will get me to sleep. I use oil during the day if I have to go somewhere.

I know from people who use their products that they are reliable and their products are good.

I've stopped smoking every night. I felt that I was not at my best the next day and I was right. So my method now is to try to sleep. If i can't I'll smoke.

5 nights so far. At most 2 Aleve.
