cannabis and Sativex

My MS nurses keep telling me the effect is psychological but, it aint, I stood upright and moved a distance without my crutches yesterday, on sitting down my right, the deader leg, bounced and twitched away merrily. I have it on good medical authority from my London trip that cannabis will be good for my movement. Some one I know pays for Sativex by private prescription and is offering me a sample, so wish me luck.

Good luck with the sample. You will get varying advice from different medical professionals. My neurologist will not condone its use but does admit that a very high number of people say it can be beneficial. You can even find people like someone I talk to in the states who shuns all proprietary medicine and uses only cannabis to manage her symptoms. I use cannabis daily to manage my symptoms and you will find a lot of people with MS who do the same so good luck with the sample and listen to your body in terms of benefits or positive effects.

The day before I tried it I had to crawl to the bathroom on waking up in the morning, day after I could manage to stagger upright with the walls for support. Am off to see a man about a vapouriser. I mean my leg bouncing up and down ain't psychological. Can I possibly find a strain with more leg movement and less head rush?

I use cannabis every night wth a vaporizer, its great for pain and to help me sleep, there is lots of different strain,i'm going to start to use one called acdc at night and one called cannatonic in the day which doesn't make you sleepy,I will let you know how i get on.

You need Sativa strains for the morning/early day which give you a more uplifting effect and then Indica for the evening for the more soporific and pain relieving effects.
