      This is really good. Totally opposite articles on the subject.

        Thanks Daisy. You all gave a lot (so much! Yikes!) to digest and consider.

        It's legalized here now but only for certain conditions, sci not being one but some of its related conditions/symptoms might fall under the criteria.

          I smoke on paced basis because of piss tests at work. If I get caught, Im shit-canned. The effects on me are not so much for pain, but it does reduce the spasticity and spasms in my legs. The pain doesn't reduce much, but once in awhile it does ease it. I dont burn for a good buzz, jus to relax the evening spazzing.

            I don't understand one thing. Kids who have seizures take it as a drop but those do not give them high right. They take that out right?

              Chronic pain and neurological conditions is what mine falls under here.

                I've been trying the elixinol cbd tinctures (drops you put under your tongue) for the past week. 4-5 times a day equaling 20-25mg of cbd. It hasn't helped with my spasms yet, if anything they seem a little worse. I'm falling asleep fast at night and after I wake up to cath in the middle of the night. It seems to help a little bit with my back pain.

                I'm going to order cbd capsules to see if I get better results from them. After that my last resort will be vaping. Maybe I need more mg of cbd to help with my spasms

                  It is finding your individual dosing that is the challenge. You probably need more.

                    With the capsules I have tried up to 90mg a day and haven't notice any difference besides sleeping better and having more detailed dreams. I was really hopeful that these were going to help with my spasms

                      CBD oil has done nothing for me and I have been on it for two months.

                        I've seen CBD dosing for SCI at 200-250 mg/day.
                        T3 complete since Sept 2015.

                          That would be over $600 a month for somebody buying out of pocket

                            MMJ doc says under the tongue is the best route for the CBD capsules and he takes them himself. If you have been using the tinctures then you probably just need the THC strains.

                            Most people are probably still going to need a low-dose narcotic to help with pain. They work together well. There are numerous studies that people have reduced narcotic dosages with cannabis like this one. http://cornerstonecollective.com/can...pain-a-review/ But do some research yourself.

                            I get better relief with the THC laden Indica strains for my spasms. I eat a piece of candy at night that is an indica dominant and save the Sativas for energy during the day. You probably want an indica dominant strain if you choose to vape. I am new to the spasm stuff as I never had them until a couple of years ago (after 27 years) when my cord decided to tether and cause all kinds of problems. Now my legs constantly jump most nights.

                            Mary's medicinals have been the best products for not getting the stoned feeling. It's all expensive but I have wasted some money on some edibles. Some brands are more potent than others and made with specific strains like "Love's oven". http://lovesoven.com/ I like knowing the strain.

                            There is also waxes and shatters that are more pure forms of THC (I think...I really only know what I have researched lol). One of my SCI friends gets relief from them but I have not tried them.
