I have diagnosed Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, Fibromyalgia, Endometriosis, Interstitial Cystitis and, sadly, a couple more. The worst symptom of all these, combined, is chronic insomnia. I typically don't fall asleep until 2:30-4:30am, sometimes I don't fall asleep at all and will watch the sunrise. This is after taking multiple types of meds (antihistamine, melatonin, benzos, etc) at about 10:30 at night. I don't drink alcohol or caffeine, nor do I nap during the day, in the hopes that I am able to actually sleep at bedtime. Nothing works and I'm very concerned about the amount of medication that I'm taking.\n\nI haven't been anywhere near any type of cannabis for almost 30yrs, so I have no clue where to start. \n\nMy first question is; I live in AZ. If I am able to obtain an ID card here, am I able to consult and purchase from you?

We do not sell any cannabis products but we do keep you informed about cannabis products especially from our cannabis partners and you will see those advertised on our website. In order to purchase products from California, you must be in California because I don't think any cannabis company will ship across state lines. To obtain a California recommendation you must be physically present in California at the time of your interview. In order to answer your question regarding your chronic insomnia, you would have to pose the question as a new one since I can only answer once for your current question. I would like to know what treatment plan you're using currently that isn't working. Are you doing Sativa followed by Indica? If so, you're just bumping your THC up over and over again and stimulating your brain. When you are doing Sativa and you want to go to sleep, add a healthy dose of CBD and it will combine with a high THC in the Sativa to make an Indica. If you go to sleep and can't stay asleep then you may need CBN. If you have a stressful day I doing courage that you use CBD through the day to help with your sleep at night. If you need additional information, please send it in another question or you can wait and see if I other doctors and answers this question you have posed.
