    In using it for my husband, who is in late stage ms with severe cognitive issues, I find that his cognitive ability actually improves significantly. My own “theory” in observation is that the weed will close down some of the brain circuits allowing him to focus on one thing vs. trying to process multiple inputs in the natural environment. His mood and sense of humor are elevated and he is able to follow conversation easier. This flies in the face of what you have found here – however, testing 12 hours later is not an indication as the weed exits the system within hours as far as immediate effects. ….12 hours later he is back to struggling to make sense of much of everything…..

      It is wonderful to hear how cannabis helps your husband. It is amazing how differently two people can process the same chemicals, much less the entire population.
      That is why studies like the ones above are so important. Our brains are incredibly complex and sensitive organs and they don’t always work the way we think. Your experience shows how much more research is needed on this subject. Thanks for sharing your story with us.

    I was lucky enough to get prescribed Sativex before it got deemed non value for NHS prescription. They let me keep it on prescription because I’d already had it as so. it changed my life. I got less urgency to pee, my sleep improved. Early morning spasticity was removed entirely

    Recently, I came off Pregabalin while on holiday and decided I would come off Sativex too to see if I could go without. (travelling with Sativex is complex if moving over borders to other countries)

    At first , I was fine with no outward concerns. The withdrawal from Pregabalin (Lyrica) was fairly intense, hallucinations, mood swings, weird feelings, anxiety and irritability.

    After a few weeks, I started to get the leg spasms at night that were the precursor to me getting treatment. First Baclofen, which didn’t work and then Tizanidine which works after a fashion, mainly making everything foggy.

    A few nights of the spasms and I tried Sativex again, that was the only thing that worked last time.

    Within 20 mins, the tightness was gone and from then on it’s been as fantastic as it was before

    My urgency to pee has reduced, my sleep has vastly improved as has my mood.

    I’ve very grateful for Sativex, it has made a lot of difference to my quality of life. It doesn’t work for everyone though, if you can try it then for sure do so.

      The side effects of pharmaceuticals scare many people away. Unfortunately for most, there is little alternative. It is great to hear how Sativex helps you manage despite the problems from other treatments. Thanks for sharing your experience.

    I’m a relatively new user of weed (3 years) but I’ve spent that time trying to understand the vast difference in strains, sub-strains, product types (dry weed, oils, edibles, various forms of concentrate, sprays, topicals). I haven’t tried all of them but, thanks to the grey market in Canada, I have been able to try quite a few. As of this this time, I find this regimen is most helpful for my pain, stomach upset and malaise:

    1) Noon: THC pill. The best I’ve found (in terms of consistency of effect) is a 25 mg THC oil capsule. I’m currently trying a larger capsule with decarboxylted (sp?) weed and oil mixture. Its effect is not as consistent as the THC oil capsules. So far, the producers haven’t indicated what strain is used for these capsules ( Indica or Sativa), so I’m not sure which is best. For daytime use, Sativa would normally be better.

    2) Afternoon: THC Sativa tincture under the tongue. Effects are variable for the same bottle, it seems. More experimentation required. When that doesn’t do the job, I also vape some high THC Sativa weed.

    3) If the daytime doses work properly, then I don’t need any more until bedtime. Otherwise, I take more Sativa tincture or dry weed or shatter during the day.

    4) Before bed: I vape or smoke a 9/9 (%THC/%CBD) dry weed produced by my legal supplier (Cannimed). It usually gets me to sleep, but if the pain is really bad, I use whiskey. I may have a marijuana brownie before bed.

    Given the huge variety of strains, sub-strains and product forms, I still have a ways to go before I find the best regimen for my symptoms (which vary) and the best products to use, depending on my symptoms of the day.

    I feel I’m still a ways from finding the best combinations of products, but as I’ve come closer I’ve found a huge improvement to my quality of life.

    PS: I no longer drive, so I have more opportunities to try different combinations than other people might. Also, there is a lot of information on the web about strains, sub-strains, products, etc. One good source is Leafly.com.

      Trying out the different treatments (or mixing and matching like yourself) is how most patients learn what works for their body. It’s important to remember that there is more than one type/strain/method of cannabis consumption and each work differently.
      Thank you for sharing!

    REAL
    My son’s symptoms were over a three-month period. It started in his back. On and off for two months, my son had pains and aches across the middle of his back. We saw my aunt who is a chiropractor and then my son’s doctor. Both said he was very tight across his back and suggested physical therapy. It didn’t help. That subsided and then his pinky finger went numb for a few days…again, that subsided. A month later, I noticed he was walking funny…that also subsided. Somewhere in the middle of all this, he experienced balance issues, only once though. We knew something wasn’t right. Right before our doctor’s appointment we noticed his left side was a little weak. His doctor confirmed that he was definitely having issues with balance and reflexes. He referred us to a neurologist. That same night, we had his first spinal MRI and then a day later the brain MRI. Both tests confirmed MS. Turns out he has many lesions in his spine that were causing the back issues. No medications or treatments ever really did anything for him, but I was actually able to cure my son’s MS after countless hours of online research and trial & error. What worked for him was MS herbal remedy I purchased from Best Health Herbal Centre. He only used the MS herbal remedy for five weeks. Curing my son’s MS has completely transformed his life and I am so grateful for my success all thanks to Best Health Herbal Centre…..For more information visit their website

    I had no idea that I had type II diabetes. I was diagnosed at age 50, after complaining to my doctor about being very tired. There is no family history of this disease. I’m a male and at the time of diagnosis, I weighed about 215. (I’m 6’2″)Within 6 months, I had gained 30 to 35 pounds, and apparently the diabetes medicines (Actos and Glimiperide) are known to cause weight gain. I wish my doctor had mentioned that, so I could have monitored my weight more closely. I was also taking metformin 1000 mg twice daily December 2017 our family doctor started me on Green House Herbal Clinic Diabetes Disease Herbal mixture, 5 weeks into treatment I improved dramatically. At the end of the full treatment course, the disease is totally under control. No case blurred vision, frequent urination, or weakness
    Visit Green House Herbal Clinic official website I am strong again and able to go about daily activities.‌ This is a breakthrough for all diabetes sufferers

    After my Multiple Sclerosis diagnosis 2 years ago, i stopped all the Multiple sclerosis medicines prescribed due to severe side effects, and decided to go on natural herbal approach. My primary care provider introduced me to Rich Herbs Foundation and i immediately started on their Multiple Sclerosis herbal formula treatment, this herbal treatment has made a tremendous difference for me. My symptoms including shaking, muscle weakness, fatigue, mood swings, numbness, double vision and urinary retention all disappeared after the 4 months treatment! Their website is w w w. r i c h h e r b s f o u n d a t i o n. c o m. Its just amazing!

    I was having joints pain in both hands inside and outside and muscle weakness due to multiple sclerosis (MS). I was falling a lot, I had headaches and lightheadedness. I couldn’t keep myself balanced, and walk with a tremor like I cannot control my steps. The amantadine hydrochloride (Symmetrel®) and modafinil (Provigil®) did very little to help me. I still didn’t feel any better, Since the original diagnosis, My stiffness has slowly increased. October 2017 my brother in-law told us about Natural Herbal Gardens where he ordered herbs that effectively treated his Parkinson’s. We ordered their multiple sclerosis herbal treatment after reading alot of positive reviews, i am happy to report this multiple sclerosis herbal treatment reversed my (MS) condition. My quality of life has greatly improved and every one of my symptoms including muscle weakness and tremors are gone. Their official web official website is ww w. naturalherbalgardens. c om. I can now go about my daily activities, I will be 64 soon.

    Five years ago, I went numb from the waist down. After quite a few MRI’s, spinal tap, I was diagonsed with Multiple Sclerosis. I was on Avenox for almost 2 years, i had 1 year of monthly steroids IV, had to stop due to hip pain. Through my physiotherapist i learnt about a MULTIPLE SCLEROSIS HERBAL TREATMENT from R.H.F. (RichHerbs Herbal Foundation) and their success rate with the treatment, i immediately started on the MS treatment, i experienced decline in major symptoms including hand tremor, back pain, difficulty walking, muscle paralysis and weakness, uncomfortable tingling and burning, fatigue, urinary retention,double vision, slurred speech difficulty swallowing, numbness. Visit ww w. richherbsfoundation.c om. I knew that a positive attitude is everything and to just believe, I’m in control of my life again….
