Medical marijuana strains and Fibromyalgia


Medical marijuana strains and Fibromyalgia

Hi I wanted to provide some information to help out others who are on or considering use of medical marijuana for fibromyalgia. Marijuana that is used for medicine is divided into two general families. They are referred to as indicas and sativas (there are hybrids that are described as a percentage indica and a precentage sativa)

Indica strains tend to be sleepier and are better in my opinion for nighttime, however for me, indicas are also more effective for deep pain.

Indica medical marijuana strains are short, bushy plants with wide leaves. Indica plants typically grow faster and have a higher yield than the sativa variety. Medicine produced from cannabis indica plants have higher CBD and lower THC counts therefore a pure indica strain will produce a heavier, sleepy type of high. The flowering stage lasts between 6 to 8 weeks.Plant Origins: Afghanistan, Morocco, and Tibet.

Sativa strains are more for daytime. The feeling is more social, more antidepressant, creative, more energetic, and clearer headed. Sativas are also good as a “distractor” from the pain, they will help you get interested in whatever it is you are doing to help you not notice how much pain you are in.

The sativa strain of marijuana is the complete opposite of the indica strain. Sativa medical marijuana pants are tall, thin plants, with narrow leaves, and generally are a lighter shade of green then their counterpart, the indica strain. Sativa strains take longer to grow, mature, and require more light. Medicine produced from cannabis sativa plants have lower CBD and higher THC counts which produces a more clear headed, energetic type of high. The flowering stage lasts between 10 to 16 weeks. Plant Origins: Colombia, Mexico, Thailand and Southeast Asia.

The best advise I can give is to change your strains up often! I usually keep at leat one form of indica and one sativa around, but like to keep two forms of each on hand. If you find you are becoming tolerant to one strain and you have another lying around, try mixing them, sometimes it can overcome the tolerance to an inividual strain. Also I keep a jar around that I put shake of different strains in. It is my emergency jar. This way, I always have something on hand that I should get at least some relief from smoking.

Another point… you don’t have to smoke it! You can make butter and then cookies, bread, brownies, etc. There are also teas available as well as tincture (a liquid placed under the tongue), and more options are available all the time.
