I have tried 3 other strains of tincture and have found the Aqua Oral Solution to be most beneficial for me. I also take 1 capsule of 10mg THC at bedtime (along with the tincture) and the combination helps me get some sleep. Microdosing helps me WITHOUT ...  negative side effects but I still have a long way to go. Iā€™m grateful to have the help of this powerful plant after trying so many pharmaceuticals that nearly destroyed me!

I began using CBD oils at the suggestion of my rheumatologist and my ME/CFS doctors. I originally tried Organic Full Spectrum Hemp Oil and found it did little to relieve my symptoms and upset my stomach. I do better if I use two different oils. The ...  Elixinol liposomal full spectrum hemp oil from ProHealth helps me sleep much better at night and eases the fibro pain. I use three squirts under the tongue before I go to bed. The 350 mg Green Roads CBD Oil works better for me for anxiety and brain fog. I take a couple of drops under my tongue in the morning. As is pretty common with anything I try, they tend to stop working after a couple of months and I go off them entirely for a month or so and then go back on them. CBD Oils are pretty pricey but worth it if they work! The Elixinol and the Green Roads are each $59.99 at https://www.prohealthcbdstore.com. I can't verify the validity of this site for rating CBD Oils but you might check https://www.bestcbdoils.org/best-companies/

Sometimes I use CBD oil to treat the muscle inflammation and pain that occurs with my CFS. It works very quickly and very noticeably. It's almost like there's a cool lane affecting my body.

However, two other notes:
CBD helps some people with migraines,...  but it did nothing for mine.

Also regarding migraines, it's very important to know that cannabis can actually exacerbate nausea with chronic migraines. It can even lead to cyclical vomiting syndrome. Be very careful with marijuana if you have migraines.

Thank you thank you for getting to thIs very important topic. I've been using different strengths of cbd and it's incredibly difficult to know proper dosage. It sure is trial and error. I did have a horrible experience with smoking cannabis when a teenager. ...  However I need a small amount of THC but it's not legal and I travel, and I'd have no idea the strength I need or where to get it. I'm at a loss. Should never have been illegal in the first place. The war on drugs my ass

Because I live in a nonlegal state I grow my own. If my state or the feds ever legalize medical use I will probably continue to grow as this way I'm assured there are no contaminants present. I buy only auto-flowering seeds so I don't have to worry about...  light exposure at the wrong time and the plants are small enough to fit 3-4 in a 4'x8' tent.

For the past several grows I've bought Kickass. While the THC content is not as high as others, it gets the job done. I have both fibro and ME, along with neuropathic limb pain and permanent neck/shoulder pain from auto accidents. I can also go from 0 to Bitch in 60 seconds. šŸ˜‰

Here's what the breeder says about it. (Kannabia.com) "Kickass Auto is a perfect balance of both psychoactivity and flavour. This indica-dominant strain is a guarantee of both relaxation and enjoyment of the citrus fruity flavour. Flowers are compact, orange & covered in trichomes."

Daily severe migraine attracts has been one of my most deliberating symptoms besides severe ME. Iā€™ve tried all angles, both preventives and acute migraine medications. Even epilepsy medications. None has made any difference. CBD-oil on the other hand: ...  magic!

This THC paste which comes in a syringe and was given to me from a friend in California is a knock out drug. Taken at night before sleep it usually puts me out in about 15 minutes. It provides an amazing sense of calm before sleep and the pain just drops...  away!

Just the smallest amount - a little bit on my tongue - needed Getting the right dose can be a little tricky; too much and I'll feel drowsy for a while in the morning but late at night when I can't get to sleep it works every time.
