Medical Cannabis and CBD
I know for some this may be a touchy topic, but one I think should be talked about on this forum. I know a lot of people with spinal cord injuries struggle with pain and muscle spasms. I take 40mg of Baclofen twice a day for my crazy spasms, it is highest amount I can take and barely makes a difference. I do not want to take stronger medications because of risk of future kidney problems. I tried Marijuana for my spasms and it was a NIGHT AND DAY difference! I have been using it ever since to help clam my body spasms and sleep. For those who are not interested in THC, CBD is another great option. This discussion is for anyone that has questions, wants to share personal experiences with Cannabis/CBD, what works for you, how to use it, the different types, and anything else related to the topic that you want to talk about! Look forward to talking with all of you and spreading the benefits of cannabis!
