Over the last eight years, I have been using medical marijuana to help with my RLS.
- Restless leg syndrome has caused myself and others anxiety for about fifteen years until medicinal marijuana was legalized.
All of the prescriptions they had given myself and others only helped for a short time, however medicinal marijuana has nearly eliminated the problem. Then, last year, they legalized recreational marijuana use which eliminated the need for a medicinal marijuana Rx card. They were now offering bizarre marijuana products at the marijuana store, and they were now also carrying CBD products I hadn’t seen before. Edibles were now available for sale. I had used many such marijuana products that were mostly CBD, however I had not bought products that were purely CBD. I asked the budtender if they would be as effective for my RLS as other marijuana products. She explained that, periodically; the CBD was just as well, however not as constant. I would need to try the CBD products and see how they worked for me. The CBD seemed to work fine the first couple of days, however after a week, I was using twice the suggested amounts of CBD and still not getting enough help with the RLS. I had to go back to the marijuana store and grab my marijuana products that were 50/50 CBD and THC. I would have never believed that it would only take a week of switching products to undo all the good the marijuana has done over the last 10 years. I am back to square 1 and once again on the THC/CBD products I was using at that time.
