I would suggest that you experiment with different ratios and different forms of cannabis. Some patients gain benefit from 60:1 CBD:THC while some prefer 20:1, 5:1, 1:1, and also with more THC than CBD. CBD increased our bodies natural cannabinoid levels, while THC directly stimulates receptors. These two cannabinoids, along with hundreds of other compounds, all work together to produce effects. It is up to you to decide what works the best for your pain and lifestyle. Inhaled, subingual tinctures, infused foods, pills, topical ointment and suppositories are just a few of the different methods of utilizing cannabis. Start with small doses and observe carfeully for results.
