Answer - Dr. Richard Kim

For pain and mood symptoms due to fibromyalgia, most patients benefit from both THC and CBD. CBD on its' own, for most fibromyalgia patients, does not provide adequate relief. THC is also a vital component when treating the mood symptoms related to fibromyalgia.

Accordingly, I recommend neither pure CBD, nor even lowTHC containing products. Microdosing a low dose of sativa would be an effective dosing protocol for most. Naturally, please trial in a safe environment and avoid operating heavy machinery such as an automobile. Please consult a qualified cannabis physician before starting any cannabis protocol.

Answer - Leslie Elkind MD

I agree with Dr. Kim that CBD + THC is likely to be more helpful than CBD alone. Many patients do some cautious experimenting with different CBD:THC ratios, easily available in vape pens, until they find what works best for them. Remember that you are working with two variables: the CBD:THC ratio and the dose (amount) you are taking).
