    Let's talk about medicinal marijuana (Cannabinoids)- Member Topic for March 2018

    Your Member Topic for the month of March is here!
    You made suggestions and we listened!
    Thanks to all who participated in February's Member Topic of the Month!

    Many US states now have made medicinal marijuana legal. Has your state legalized it? Are any of you using the hemp strain that is high in CBD or Cannabinoids that have been purported to have therapeutic effects for those living with MS?

    Please join us and share you thoughts and stories of how it has helped you. Your comments are always welcomed.

    Thank you all for your participation and stay tuned for more topics from your suggestions in the months to come! We appreciate all your thoughtful ideas and hope to hear more from you! You can add more suggestions here: https://www.msworld.org/forum/showth...TH-suggestions!

    Good Topic
    Can't wait to hear what kind of experience others are having with these types of medications.

    I live in Ohio, nothing's legal yet, so it's difficult to get medications. Sad thing is our idiotic state legislation grabbed ahold of the potential legalization of medical marijuana products, so it's since run into complications in getting it off the ground and with all the hands into each other's pockets and government bul
    ...think I'll stop there!
    Anyway....

    I would love to find an oil or a specific strain of weed that would help with spasticity. Looking forward to hearing the experience of others.

        Finding what's needed in a pre-legalized state is hit and miss. Too much THC and my ability to walk goes downhill, but I've done really well on CBD high strains.

        I haven't found a "dealer" (hate that word, but again, pre-legalized state) that knows what kind of strain they're getting. Kind of sad, and it makes experimentation with things hit-and-miss. :-/

        It's a very different time than two decades ago when all I was looking for was strong THC. Strong CBD is probably less popular in general as it results in a weaker stone. Weird how things change.

          I'm in Ohio too.

          Remain hopeful!

          Ohio law requires the Ohio Medical Marijuana Control Program to be fully operational by Sept 8, 2018. https://www.medicalmarijuana.ohio.go...nts-caregivers

          Also, there is a very popular hemp center in Toledo, that uses cannabinoids that are extracted from the hemp plant (CBD). They sell pills, oils, edibles, lotions, etc. - all legal - but no THC high, though. The owner does not dispense marijuana, and is going to keep his business distinct from the soon to come marijuana dispensaries.

          I have not used any of the products yet. However, I know a few people who use the products for pain and anxiety (and claim that they receive much relief), and have even discontinued their regular narcotics.

            This - and I am not willing to hunt up anybody who would have access to product.

            Seems kinda a no-brainer to me - states need money. But they spend so much money on arresting and incarceration of offenders of marijuana laws when they (states) could be reaping profits from legalizing and taxing the sale of regulated marijuana .

              My state has legalized both recreational and medicinal. According to the Liquor and Cannabis Control Board Washington state collected a total of $319 million in legal marijuana income and license fees in fiscal year 2017, all but $4 million of it from the stateís marijuana excise, or sales tax.

              Funny thing is I haven't used any form of marijuana since college in the early 70's. I probably could benefit from Cannabinoid (CBD) to help with spasticity. Would like to hear other's who use this for that reason and if it helps.

                  You can google Toledo Hemp Center (it's on Phillips Ave).

                  I put the url (an article about the center) in my profile (just click on my user name).

                    Totally Agree

                    I found out rather quickly about the effects of THC with ms and how it um, makes walking even more impossible

                    But its fun learning the names on all the strains that are available ( in the legal states ).

                    All we can do is educate ourselves and find out what works best. Right?

                    Every one and ever case is different obviously.

                    I remain hopeful!!

                        Yeah... THC was a party by itself twenty years ago for me. Now I stay on the couch for a reason.

                        Educate yes, experimentation is sadly the way of it in most states. Be safe with that... experimenting as a teen was fun and all, but stakes are higher at this age. I've been trying to search around for CBD-heavy strains, but gl there, as most want the highest (ha ha) bang for the buck.

                        Totally different game now.

                          Results?

                          Question for those able to medicate with MJ

                          What strains do you find helpful?

                          In what form do you take the medication?

                          whats better for you? Indica or Sativa, or what blend of hybrid ?

                          Obviously everyone is different, but knowledge is power...

                            For our Canadian friends - just now saw this and thought to pass it along:

                            Registered patients in Canada can now purchase CanniMed Topical Cream, a product with medical cannabis oil designed to provide fast-acting relief for patients with multiple sclerosis (MS) and other conditions associated with pain and inflammation.

                            https://multiplesclerosisnewstoday.c...f6c79-72871989

                            But wow, it is pricey!

                              Great topic! I wish all patients with MS could use this and be covered by insurance. I joke that insurance wonít cover it because itís effective and has no side effects .

                              My neuropathy dropped by 80% on 1:1 CBD : THC ratio. Spasticity drop 20 %.its legal here.

                              I have an ongoing blog about my use of MMJ if itís helpful to this great discussion here:
