"Are there certain strains I should look for? Should I use products that contain CBD or THC, or both?"
I need a combination of both Indica and Sativa for different times of day and activities. I have more issues than just chronic pain. I have had a brain tumor removed 5 years ago which still gives me trouble. Also, I broke 3 vertebra in my lower spine then rebroke 2 when I was nearly healed and I'm still recovering from that. To top it off, I was diagnosed with Lupus about 15 years ago and the medication makes me very nauseous.
Chronic pain is one of the most common reasons that people seek out cannabis therapy, and certainly persons with years of wisdom behind them are no exception. Medical cannabis is available in many different forms and strengths, all of which have different effects, so it's probably a good idea to plan a consultation where we can talk the options that might work best for you.
