THC vs. CBD

  • By Dana

    What are my fellow migraine friends views on THC vs. CBD? I have used medicinal marijuana in a tincture before (I can’t smoke it…asthma) but it’s always been a higher THC ratio and I get absolutely no pain relief, just high. I’m just curious if people think CBD is a better option… I guess because when you get a medical marijuana card you think marijuana = THC.
    Thoughts?

    Use both. I use a ratio of almost 50:50 in a vape and it works perfectly to relieve the pain. If I get too high from that, I take 10mg of edible CBD gummies. Magically, I’m no longer high, but I still have pain relief. Mezz makes cartridges of this ratio. They call it Mellow.

      Aww….thanks kalikolarodo. Unfortunately, I can’t vape and edibles aren’t legal in Delaware…..so stupid and frustrating……

    Oh. Sorry. You can’t vape. Try the 5mg CBD edible and take three for a total of 15mg. The ones I use have a little THC in them too but not enough to get you high. You may have to take 20 mg or more to get relief. I haven’t gone higher than that because if it didn’t work, I used the vape pen that is half CBD and that always worked.

      I would have to make the edibles myself, I tried once before with a marijuana tincture and I guess my ratio’s were off, because they did not help! Maybe it will be easier since the CBD is already in a liquid form. I’ll have to look for some recipes online.
      Thanks!

    Every day transformed chronic headaches 55years. Cbd hemp oil – found this did not work well. Cbd Cana oil with thc vaped – three hits took pain of 15 (scale 10) to a 0 with three inhalation’s. Was very high, which I did not like but worked like a charm. I am in process of looking for ones with little less thc. I figure it is another tool in the medicine cabinet.

    They said that medical cannabis is very effective when it comes to insomnia, migraine and anxiety. At first I was doubtful so I started doing my own research and read articles about marijuana. I found out that each marijuana strain has different uses for different diseases. Like this strain https://www.gyo.green/rare-dankness-star-killer-dkn-stk-r.html This one is very effective when it comes to stress and mild anxiety. Let me hear your two cents with this.thanks
