I’m currently growing White Widow, Trainwreck, and Chronic Widow for pain and help staying asleep. I use edibles to better control my dosages. Both butter and oil. My problem is I haven’t found a strain that decreases my lower back pain enough that I can do any more than 10 minutes of work without having to stop from the agonizing pain. The Chronic Widow is one of the top strains for THC and CBD. I use about 1-2 grams every 6 hours of it at 50% amber trichomes and it’s still not enough. My pain is from nerves connected to my spine.
Have you tried the Gold Leaf? Its reviews seem outstanding.
That was my last grow and i’m going to be growing it again this time around
Yep. I grow 1 gold leaf every grow for daytime use. It’s not as strong as Chronic Widow. It’s very good though @PurpNGold74
gold leaf,blueberry,white rhino…to name a few…blue cheese and master kush is some that i’m currently growing,but have not tried yet…
I’ve got a bunch of messed up nerves as well from a spinal injury. I wish I knew anything to contribute but just wanted to say I sympathize with you. It really sucks. Are you using any meds other than cannabis? I started Lyrica almost a couple weeks ago with some improvement. But there’s other drugs that do similar my doctor wants to try until we find one that works. I know the object is to not take any pharmaceuticals but I will do anything to make my pain levels more bearable.
I’ve tried all but the really ridiculous priced drugs out there including Lyrica and only high doses of painkillers or the right strain of cannabis does anything. I had no luck with growing Blueberry autos so I’m going to grow feminized next time.
Man I’m sorry to hear that. I hope you find a strain that’ll work. I’m on the hunt as well. @Budbrother recommended northern lights so it’s high on my list to try. In fact it’ll probably be my second grow if I get a decent haul from this first round.
northern lights is a great strain with decent yeilds and plenty of punch!
Lyrics didn’t work for my nerve pain. Dr’s just kept handing me more and more pain killers. Here take Methadone and Oxy with this Soma and lets not forget Xanax. Still hurting!? What do you mean it doesn’t really help with the pain!? Well then, let’s implant a Morpheme pump in your lower back… then you can be hooked on narcotics for the rest of your life. Really? Do you need to function in life!? Fuq!!!
NL works better than most strains on my nerve pain. Looking into other strains now. Sour D & Blue Dream also are more great day pain smokes.
Just made some Loaded PotTayToes with WW & BB budder. Let the pain fade…
I’m growing a Northern Lights along with 2 trainwrecks, 2 Chronic Widow, 3 White Widow, and 2 Sour Diesel. The Northern Lights is unfortunately not strong enough for me, but I do like it a lot. I won’t take opiates for anything other than broken bones or surgery
Usually have 6+ NL outside in a shared grow. We’ve had it consistently for years during the summer for RSO pills. Bud rot this year only got my share of budder.
I’ve been off all pain meds for 3yrs now. All that shit prescribed sent me into renal failure. So I can’t take anything but thc & cbd.
Nothing I’ve found is gonna stop the nerve pain completely. Most I get is mild relief and stoned. So I can stop only thinking about the pain and/or eventually sleep through it. I had a numb left side from thigh down the legs. Can feel my big toe. The pain nerve stops the jolting, stabbing, sometimes burning pain 24/7.
Sometimes, though rarely, smoking weed increases my nerve pain to, “Plz Plz Plz make it stop!” level. Like a 1 in 2-300
High cbd balms help tremendously with lower back pains as well. Please tag me if you find something that works for you better on nerve pain. Always down to grow or concentrate into, anything that helps with that particular pain level.
I’m going to grow Crystal and Critical Mass in the next couple of grows so I’ll let everyone know if I find something that works better than Chronic Widow. I lost my whole outdoor grow from a flooded Creek. It was just an experiment anyway. I’ll stick to indoors. I have a lot more control.
I did a Critical 2.0 in a 4x4 scrog about 2-3 years ago. They grow big, super fast. Ended up with 1.3# including the larf. My biggest indoor grow ever! The few friends that know about me, were after the stretch & guesstimating
Phantom cookies works for me for arthritis and nerve pain. Growing tangerine dream this year, it is supposed to be good too, but so far does nothing for me. It is too light, needs to darken some. I have not needed the pain pills for about two years now. Hope this helps.
