The other day I ended up going to a local cannabis dispensary to see what my chances are, but i do not have a dentist that prescribes medical marijuana, although I do have three separate chronic conditions.
I have arthritis in my back, hips, as well as my knees.
I also have fibromyalgia. Both of these conditions cause a lot of pain. While it is true that most days are worse than others, however it is a precious afternoon that I have no pain at all! With that being said, I was starting to wonder if CBD cream could help or if I could get edibles that would help relieve some of my chronic pain. Inside the cannabis dispensary is where I learned about marijuana strains, however there are three very large cannabis plant strains: sativa, indica, plus a hybrid of the 2 strains. GSC, or Girl Scout Cookies, is a type of sativa strain, plus in general, sativa strains are thought to be the most popular. The guy at the shop told me that he thinks that is too big a generalization, but, but he thinks that the sativa strains are popular with the young crowd; I think this is because sativa strains tend to bring feelings of invigoration plus energy. That makes sativa better for social events like parties or consuming in a bar or marijuana cafe. The dispensary employee, however, told me that his shop sees quite a few older folks love me plus even older. Indica strains, he says, are more popular with the older folks because they are similar to alcohol – sedating, similar to a glass of wine at bedtime. It was a very interesting conversation, although I have no plan what kind is better for my arthritis.
