If it's on your mind and it has to do with multiple sclerosis in any way, post it here.

Look up 'Rick Simpson Oil' /'Run From the Cure'....on how to make capsules. If you're going to bake something, look up 'decarboxylation', for steps to take.

Good Luck!

You know, just because I didn't get what I felt was full effect from those capsules, doesn't mean you won't benefit from them.....give the ones from the dispensary a try and see what you think:-)

Hi,
I'm 46 yrs old and diagnosed in my late 30's after being rear-ended in a car accident. But I had numbness in my fingers in my 20's but thought it was job related stress (bond & stocker broker). They did various testing but never came up with anything....So I don't know if my ms actually goes back to my early 20's. I have rrms.

It will definitely be interesting to compare the two. I usually don't ingest, but I do vape and really interested in the better availability of higher CBD strains these days.

I won't be there for a few more weeks, but I'll report back when I do try them!

Definitely keep me posted, I hope you have great success!

Are you vaping bud or a concentrate? I'm wondering if vaping bud would be better than vaping a concentrate. The 'whole' plant vs extractions from the plant (no plant matter). I know you can set the vaporizer, with bud, at different temperatures to get different cannibinoids...

I have "Clinically Isolated Syndrome". Basically, Multiple Sclerosis but they have only found 1 lesion so far. I informed my neurologist (a resident who is an undergraduate from a very well known, prominent school, and a graduate at a very prominent school for neurology) that I use marijuana to control some of the symptoms, and she said the following:

"Marijuana, as you know, is a schedule 1 drug which means the government does not believe it to have any medical benefit. We all know this is not true. Since it is a schedule 1 drug, it is very difficult to have medical studies conducted which test the medical benefits of the drug. However there has been a recent study that conclusively shows marijuana, when not used in the combustible form, helps patients with Multiple Sclerosis who are experiencing spasticity. I cannot legally recommend that you use the drug due to its schedule 1 status, but I will not tell you that it would not benefit you if you are experiencing spasticity. I will say that the combustible form is the form I would urge you not to use, because we all know the smoked form is bad for your overall health".

I will say that she shot me down when I brought up my experiences that it does help me with SOME forms of pain. She said that there have been no studies done that confirm pain relief, or any other types of relief for patients with MS. I was released from the hospital yesterday after a 5 day stay and a spinal tap. I have been constipated for a week with no urge to use the toilet. They gave me 2 stool softeners every day I was there, as well as a prescription strength laxative and it did not work. I came home and ate a piece of a pot brownie and 2 hours later I had a bowel movement. Also, my spine stopped feeling extremely tense and the pain (from the spinal tap) went away. There are hundreds of thousands, hell, millions of people who could benefit from this being medically available.

I live in Louisiana, and this state is quite possibly the harshest state against marijuana. I absolutely love my city and refuse to move, but it would be a godsend if a pill, or any alternative to smoking it, was readily available.

Hi Alaina,
There is so much to learn about it's benefits, hopefully the Dr.'s don't close their mind's to it....that would be an enormous mistake. There is no doubt that it helps with pain, guess we just gotta wait for the medical community to see it for themselves....lets hope it's sooner than later, this disease is absolutely horrible.

I hope you're feeling better!
