When I started this blog a couple of months ago, I was looking to wean off of Cymbalta (aka: the devil himself) and begin using cannabis to manage 1. the withdrawals and 2. the illness.
I guess you can probably tell by my other posts that I did get a medical cannabis card and have been learning a lot about different ways to use and how much to take of my new medicine.
Along with widespread pain, part of my struggle with Fibromyalgia is bouts of severe sleeplessness and I have found that vaporizing a 50/50 Sativa/Indica hybrid like Medi-Bud works well at night for me.
For daytime relief, I have found that capsules made with a Sativa strain I like called Chocolope works amazing and they are seriously easy to make. I purchased 2 pills for $6.50 at the dispensary but yikes… that’s super expensive!! I looked into how to make my own capsules and found that all you need to do is infuse coconut oil with the strain you need (You can see how I did this here) and fill them yourself.
Everyone is different and you should start low and go slow, dosage wise. My capsules are a little weaker than the ones I got from the dispensary but I can take 2 if I want to and that works fine for me too but my goal is to medicate without the head high unless I don’t care if it happens but usually I do care because my life is so busy and I need to be sharp.
My little setup worked great!
At this point, I am really seeing a decrease in the withdrawals from Cymbalta and am just beyond happy to be nearly done with this struggle…. Fibro is hard enough; am I right??
I have also made a small batch of peanut butter cookies that came out great and I will talk about that another time but for now…. lets end this on a “High” note 🙂
Have a Happy Day!! XO
