    Medical Marijuana Strain For Lupus?

    Hi, I just want to ask if someone ever tried using cannabis for pain management? I am 35 years old now and been battling lupus for almost half of my life now. I have read many articles suggesting highly concentrated cannabis oil can be effective and alternative meds for people suffering lupus. Pain and inflammation are two commonly recognized therapeutic properties of cannabis, so its ability to treat lupus effectively is not surprising. Like this review on a Northern Lights strain from http://www.ilovegrowingmarijuana.com/northern-lights/ . This plant has very high CBD and pain suppresing effect. I am very familiar with the high and physical effects of cannabis but I cant find any solid evidence that it will work. Let me also hear your thoughts or personal experience when it come with medical marijuana.

    I'm a medical marijuana user, and it's effects are great. I suffer from pain, insomnia and anxiety, and the use of cannabis has relieved my anxiety, my pain, I'm no longer depressed, I sleep way better, and I feel much better. I usually vape it before I'm going to sleep. Marijuana does more good than harm, and I prefer it rather than taking prescribed meds because those mask the problem, are addictive, and the side effects are horrible. Make sure you have your medical marijuana card, and the strains that I use are Thin Mint Girl Scout Cookies OG which is a hybrid, other one that is also good is the Blue Dream OG which is also a hybrid = (Indica and sativa). Basically any OG strain is great for pain. Hope this helps.

    I have fibromyalgia and diabetes related neuropathy. Gave up opioids about six months ago. THC oil helps with pain/inflammation .

    Hello. Did I read your post correctly? You write that you are "familiar with the high". If so, then you should know if marijuana helps lupus. I currently use CURCUMIN for pain and inflammation - studies show it is effective - and it has helped my pain. I use Cura..ed ordered from Ama---n and take 3 a day. MD in CA is currently testing curcumin for cancer and finding positive results in his studies. (google it.)

    The strains other than thc are wonderful for you. Medical cannabis rest and a great diet will get you going. Give it about a month. Good luck!
