I’ve been taking CBD oil for almost 3 days now and smoking mainly CBD cannabis. Some interesting things have been occurring. Here is your inside snippet:
The ACDC oil has helped reduce my pain and cramps so far. I’ve tried the strain Harlequin and it puts me right to sleep, so I like the ACDC better for all day pain relief.
So far I’m taking 10 drops 2-3x/day, depending on pain. I’m taking 10 drops in the morning, smoking one CBD strain joint, and drinking one green vegetable juice. In midday, between 2-4pm, I’ll take another 10 drops with whatever juice/soup I’ll be ingesting. At night it seems the pain increases as my body and mind gets more tired from the day’s tasks, so last night I took 20 drops of CBD and smoked THC cannabis to reduce pain and get to sleep.
As for other CBD strains, I have been enjoying a strain the farmer called “Tonic” that is 10% CBD and 0.5% or less of THC. It takes away my anxiety and ADD tendencies, increasing my focus without panic. The best part is that I can drive and go in public since it doesn’t alter my “euphoric” center. It reminds me of a light Xanax or anti-anxiety med. It gives me a sense that it’s rewiring my brain because I noticed my emotional reactions to stress have been lessened after smoking it daily, compared to THC creating more emotion, sensitivity, and anxiety. (This is probably why I’m a hermit crab when smoking High THC!)
The “pennywise” strain has made me sleepy and the ACDC makes my body very sleepy, from the high levels of myrcene. So for daily medicating, I really like the Tonic best to smoke and the ACDC oil best for pain.
Finally, at the end of the night, when I get off work past midnight (closing time), I sit down to have my THC cannabis. The first night after smoking and ingesting CBD all day, I passed right out with just one single hit of THC-dominant cannabis. I knew I was exhausted but soon realized the next day, I was super sensitive to THC again! Something has occurred inside of me that has made me very sensitive to THC. I believe it’s the synergistic effect happening, of the cannabinoids activating each other. Since my body hasn’t had this much CBD on a consistent, dosed basis before, the THC hasn’t had a chance to act accordingly.
After smoking one joint of a THC-dominant cannabis strain, I felt almost drunk. I had the spins and felt like gravity had turned up to 20x. This is what happens to me when I have too much THC; I need to lay down in a dark room and not make any effort to speak or move. [That just reminded of the anti-pot girl melted on the couch commercial and the dog is like “What happened to you? We used to play.”]
Cannabis works on a bell curve: too little doesn’t work and too much doesn’t work well medically for a consistent basis. I’m learning and feeling this exact curve and learning my dosing rate. Everyone will have a personal rate of need for cannabinoids depending on your personal deficiency.
Other details of my holistic healing regimen:
I’m enjoying my 21-Day Meditation Challenge with Oprah and Deepak. This is my second challenge with them, and I would highly recommend this type of meditation for beginners. This round is focusing on my belief system and core beliefs: love, self-worth, security, and wholeness. Taking 20 minutes a day for guided, contemplative meditation keeps me focused for most of the day on the mantra. Today was about turning beliefs into actions, as well as focusing on all 4 core beliefs and how I externalize them in my life.
I’m still on a liquid diet and made some potato-parsnip soup today from scratch. I used my vitamix and it came out very smooth and yummy! I really hope I’m not on a liquid diet by Thanksgiving so I can enjoy some sweet potato mash and marshmallows. As for all my other meals, I’m drinking organic green juice by SujaJuice or having a broth/smooth soup. Due to the low calories, I am losing some weight, unfortunately, but know I’ll be healed up and eating very soon once again.
For my exercise, I have been dancing 20-30 minutes per day to 90’s pop songs. Music and dancing really helps me forget about whatever pain I may be in in those moments, and gets my lymphatic system and fluid flowing so I don’t feel so much pain all over. I’m still experiencing random pains from my fibromyalgia and nerve damage, so moving around a little bit each day is a must.
Still taking 2-4oz Aloe Juice and 4-800mg Turmeric Supreme
