pinch nerve pain, in legs what do i need


While there is no best cannabis product, there is probably a best ratio of CBD:THC to suit your goals. Products with higher concentrations of CBD vs THC, such as 20CBD:1THC, will lessen, or even eliminate, psychoactive effects. However, products with similar levels of CBD and THC have been shown to alleviate pain most. So, for most people, it takes some trial and error before finding an ideal compromise. Dosages will vary according to the patient’s goals, pain level, tolerance, current medications, the CBD to THC ratio and other factors. Accordingly, I recommend that you consult with a qualified physician.

If the pain is due to a pinched nerve, some extra THC would likely be beneficial. Products/strains with higher concentrations of CBD vs THC, such as 20CBD:1THC, will lessen, or even eliminate, psychoactive effects. However, products with similar levels of CBD and THC have been shown to alleviate most forms of pain, including neuropathic pain, best. A compressed nerve causes neuropathic pain, so a higher concentration of THC would be most beneficial — 1CBD:1THC is the ratio studied and approved for neuropathic pain in Canada. Here is more information about neuropathic vs musculoskeletal pain:
