I was reading several articles on cannabis. These were current articles and studies.
I know quite awhile ago there was some discussion on but here but thought I would ask you all anyways.
According to what I have read, cannabis can treat ALOT of symptoms that we suffer. I know we are all different but I was blown away.
It can treat POTS, IBS, it decreases inflammation in the brain giving it homeostasis to regulate our organ systems. Among many it also can relieve pain! Most of us know that.
I take alot of medications like many of us. Especially for POTS, depression and pain.
I thought how great it would be to be able to stop some of these meds for an organic medication.
Turns out in my State it's ridiculous what you have to go through to actually get it. It's expensive! Plus my doctor was not thrilled about going through the process. So I will not be trying cannabis.
My question, is anyone currently on cannabis or tried it? Has it helped you? If it has, in what way?
I am not thinking of the high, or using as a recreational drug. I would like to hear if any of my ME/CFS, PR friends have some input and experience. Especially if it's recent.
Anyone tried cannabis?

Former Healthcare worker, cared for patients of all ages and their families. ME has now prevented me from doing this work. What it can't take away are my memories. Memories of helping people, memories of things I've done that brought me joy. Looking back doesn't have to stay sad. Memories are a gift to smile about. Sometimes for little while, we may need to mourn them. Then smile, hold on to them, remembering the good, letting go of the bad....easy? Not really....just good.
