I am looking for some recommendations for my wife who suffers badly with pain daily from fibromyalgia. She smokes weed, but it is usually an Indica because of her anxiety as well. She doesn’t like feeling that heavy all day. What strains would any one recommend for pain management during the day without heavy anxiety saliva effects?
i am waiting for this! my sister in law has fibro too
I researched some strains…I picked up an eight of Blue Dream. This seems to work pretty well. Doesn’t cause anxiety, but it doesn’t couch lock either. I’m hopeful that maybe I found a strain worth growing for this purpose.
I grow for my wife, a long time fybro sufferer.
The #1 issue we started out trying to address was sleep. If you dont sleep then the pain wont go away.
Thats why the first med they try when you tell your doctor is a mild sleep med. For some its a low dose depression med because in low doses it helps you sleep. But you probably know this…
So we tried several strains so far…
Northern Lights seems to work best for edibles to give a full nights sleep.
In the vape we have landed on Granddaddy Purple. It really wants you to go to sleep.
So she eats her medicated cookies around 8pm, Vapes a couple times around 10 pm or so and usually gets a good night of sleep. She has been able to cut back on her pain meds by at least 25% so far. Anxiety levels are much much better, and she feels like getting out in the yard to do some work with her plants now. If she needs something during the day she will just eat a cookie and that seems to help. We have tried a few other strains and will continue to experiment. So far this works best…for us.
I do gave gummies and Indica for night time which seems to work. What are you using for daytime. Indica just makes her feel heavy all day. We are trying Blue Dream this weekend. Definitely more uplifting. Thoughts on day time? My wife has it pretty bad. I make balms for her as well. She is not currently or ever had been on any other meds.
Amnesia haze is a good daytime strain.
Clear headed but short lived.
