I have Fibromyalgia and I am looking for a flower to smoke for pain relief and relaxation at night?
Cannabis has been studied for its potential benefits in treating fibromyalgia, a condition characterized by chronic pain, fatigue, and other symptoms. Several studies have suggested that cannabis, particularly its components THC, CBD and terpenes beta-caryophyllene, myrcene, linalool and pinene may help alleviate pain and improve quality of life in people with fibromyalgia. If you are purchasing from a dispensary ask the budtender to search the on site COA's (certificate of analysis) for strains AKA chemovars for the the following dominate compounds.
Beta-Caryophyllene: This terpene is known for its ability to reduce inflammation, which can contribute to pain relief. Chemovars; Gary Payton, Girl Scout cookies
Myrcene: It has been suggested to have analgesic (pain-relieving) properties and is also known for its sedative effects, which can help with relaxation and sleep. Chemovar; Granddaddy purple, Blue Dream
Linalool: This terpene is associated with anti-anxiety and analgesic effects, making it potentially beneficial for managing pain and promoting relaxation. Chemovar; LA Confidential, Amnesia Haze
Pinene: Known for its anti-inflammatory properties, pinene may contribute to pain relief and has been studied for its potential analgesic effects. Chemovars; Blue Dream, Jack Herer
Cannabis is often considered an individualized medicine lending unique affects for each person. The uniqueness stems from the intricate interplay between the plants compounds and the individuals biological makeup.
Determining the right dosage is crucial. What works for one person might not be suitable for another. Starting with low doses and gradually adjusting based on individual response is key to finding an effective and comfortable dosage. Take one hit of flower and wait 10-15minutes before taking another hit, if efficacy has been reached from one hit, no need to take another, if more medicine is needed
take another hit and wait another 10-15 minutes, repeat till efficacy is reached.
