Marijuana Strain For Fibromyalgia?


I Just want to ask if someone here knows the right marijuana strain to use when it come with fibromyalgia?

I've been suffering with back pain for almost 3 months now and can't sleep properly at night. I already have a prescription meds but I refrain on using them coz it only take the pain for a minute or so and back again. Then one of my friends gave me a joint to try if it makes me feel better and it does! I try asking him what it is but he has no idea also. So I started doing my own research about medical marijuana and strains that would be effective against pain and came across this blueberry
I'm not sure if that's the strain that I've tried but it has the highest pain management effect. Cbd and thc are all new to me. I also read that drinking it as tea or as a muffin/cake is an option, but is relief effects the same? Why can't they simply make pills out of marijuana - or maybe there are that I am not aware of. If it's true, then I would very much appreciate any ideas and advice on what strain is good and how to use it medically. Thanks in advance to those who'll answer.

    Rhea - I was on the Alternative Treatment board here and searching for info on CBD ointments for pain relief and while hunting around the internet I came across some giant marijuana forums and one section of a forum I saw was devoted to the subject of your thread, mar strains for pain relief.  I'm not allowed to post links on here but if you search like I did you'll come upon it too.  So far, though, I don't know about a good cbd ointment.  I have been experimenting with CBD oil vaping, though, as you'll see if you go the above named board.  I do use other ointments, especially a mixture of lidocaine ointment and DMSO.  That helps some.

    There is a synthetic marijuana pill, most THC.  Its available via prescription at pharmacies - called  Marinol

    It was first introduced in 1986 as a anti-nauseate for chemotherapy patients.  By 1993 it was approved for nausea and appetite loss for AIDS sufferers.  It is FDA approved.

  • @dilauro I had no idea about the synthetic marijuana pill. I have been thinking about getting my marijuana card for my fibromyalgia but I'm really scared. I'm scared that the marijuana would make things worse and set of everything and then I'll be in the middle of storm flare. Also if that is the route you can't go to a PMD because a lot of them don't allow you to do smoke marijuana and go to them not to mention the monthly urine tests that they give you. Have you ever tried it yourself?

    I have fibromyalgia and recently had a spine fusion.  I have had my card for over a year and can't tell you how many different things I have tried.  Since it is painful for me (non-smoker) to smoke or "vape", I am currently on a tincture of CBD oil with very low THC.  The problem that I see is that each grower will have a different strain and next time you buy,  it will be different again.  Right now I have to figure out how much to take and after 4 weeks of different dosages........nothing.  CBD needs some THC to be effective; but you know what happens with too much THC.  I have tried to connect with others with fibromyalgia/fusion/marijuana,  but there is not much info unless you want to be non-functional.

  • I know someone that has tried Marinol and she said it felt very weird and doesn't work nearly as well as the raw marijuana plant.  That's because the plant has hundreds of different chemicals which all synergize together and provide better relief.
