Well for me, that amount is extreeeeeeeemely relaxing, so I'm saving them for isolated pain relief or to de-stress here and there. I do think CBD works great. When you find your best dose there are really no side effects. I am 5'9 150 and daily 10mg does have a great lasting effect on pain, but I feel "normal."
    Meant to add, the ratio of both above meds is 30:1 CBD to THC.

    Also not in a MMJ state but have been using for a couple years now since I first read it helped.

    Interestingly enough I have not had a full blown relapse since I started. I know it's not a cure and isn't supposed to slow progression but since starting I am back working full time, in a construction related industry so not exactly light duty. I have had a few flares but nothing that lasted any real length of time. I have read that it has neuro-protective properties. Google marijuana neuro-protective to read some of the literature. I am still taking Gilyena and I wonder if some how the combination of the two is working some magic.

    Even my neuro is a bit impressed by my last two MRI's showing no disease activity.

    It has also cut my opioid use by about 40% and if I was in a legal MMJ state that would probably go to 100% as I primarily use the opioids now when I can't smoke, which is most of the time.

    As far as gait goes initially it hurt my gait but helped with spacsticity and related pain. The hurting of the gait was primarily cause I was still dosing like a 20 year old stoner. After a couple of months I got it regulated to where I can smoke just enough to help but not enough to get "high". After 6 months I stopped having spasticity altogether and quit using a cane.

    I have thought to quit smoking and see what happens but after over 2 years relapse and cane free I kinda don't want to poke the bear. If/When I do have another relapse maybe I'll consider changing my protocols.

    I don't claim it is a miracle cure and my improvement could be caused by many things, like anything else with MS your mileage may vary.

    interesting

    That's some interesting info, Thanks for sharing. I will be diving into the whole cbd thing within the next few weeks, so I'm sure I will review it again. I'll post what I learn on this thread.

    I found a strain of medicine that shows a little improvement with mobility and flexibility for me. Its not a miracle sized difference, however it is worthy of a trial run, because in our world a little improvement can obviously go a long way... when ya just plain can't walk!!!! The name of the medicine is Platinum OG.

    Thought I'd share for what its worth

    God Bless

    Rob

    It's for CBD, but I did find this, which might be of use:

    I was told to use two drops twice a day and four drops before bed. It seems to be helping me with my mood and I can sleep for longer periods of time.

    The list of the licensed Ohio MMJ dispensaries is out. The list has the name, county, city, and address of each dispensary. (There are three in my vicinity).

    Not sure if any are quite ready for business yet, but they all must be in operation by Sept 8 of this year.

    Soon you'll be able to ask your questions at the dispensary.

    Take Care

    Thanks KOKO

    Looking forward to it, I had good luck with Toledo Hemp ( in regards to getting a Michigan card) but I have not purchased yet....kinda pricey. But good to know I can.

    Hope all is well

    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...

    You say gait can be affected. In what way? Improves it, it makes it worse?

    I also realize that help is unregulated. But, in my state, so is my, because it is illegal.
    My gait is somewhat improved because the MMJ reduces my spasticity in my lower legs by about 20%.

    Edited to add:

    Marinol is a mainstream prescription drug covered by insurance. It is pure synthetic THC. THC without CBD and terpenes in MMJ, isnít very effective. I tried it before MMJ was legal.

    Sativex has THC and CBD in it, 1:1 ratio and helps MS. Itís availan in Europe and Israel. Sadly, not in USA. I would try it.

    Hemp is unregulated. It us CBD from hemp plant. But you donít know what youíre getting. Some like Edens Cure. It can help pain. My experience with hemp was uneven. MMJ is much more effective, and at least in Florida, tightly regulated.

    I was wondering what your neuro said about medical mj? What about interfering with our ms meds.?

    It is legal in my state and I have an appoint. with my neuro at the end of the month and I will be talking to him about it. Does the neuro have to give a letter stating you have ms and then you go to a mmj dr.?

    I've continued to read, and I'm not ready to dismiss hemp entirely. I've read that hemp can help reduce inflammation and urinary frequency and can help with sleep. Those are all issues that don't make it useless, as you might be suggesting.

    You suggest that mj might help you with memory and with pain. I'm glad for you, but those aren't symptoms that I experience.
