Does anyone get a tingling and pulsing feeling in their legs/body as a side effect of THC?

by HelloMD

\nI've been using cannabis for 7 months now and when I don't take CBD with my THC oil, or when I take too much THC, I ALWAYS get this symptom.\n\nI get a tingling feeling as well as a pulsing feeling in my lower legs and feet. It's not painful but it is like my blood heart rate pulsing all through my lower legs (last night was all over my body), and also tingling like when my arm or leg falls asleep. \n\nI'm using low doses too... typically 5.5mg THC with 65mg CBD capsules, or 4.4mg THC 40mg CBD capsules. Any amount of THC higher than that with those CBD amounts or those amounts of THC with lower CBD makes me have the pulsing feeling. I can't seem to find anything online about it, and I've even asked a cannabis coach and she couldn't find anything on it. \n\nI also tried Magnolia Bark extract last night with my usual CBD-THC amounts (40mg CBD, 4.4mg THC) and I had the worst tingling/pulsing all over my body and some head high. Do you know of any interactions with herbs/other compounds that can enhance the endocannabinoid system and increase the effects of THC? I've read online that magnolia bark enhances the endocannabinoid system.

Depending on the kind of work you do it could be something like sciatica. I would go to your doctor or physician to get checked up. The symptoms that you are having sound a lot like sciatica.
