Apr 25, 2017 (Started Apr 15, 2016)

  • Effectiveness
    None (for fibromyalgia)
  • Effectiveness
    Major (for irritable bowel syndrome)
  • Side effects
    None
  • Adherence
    Usually
  • Burden
    Not at all hard to take
Dosage: As needed
Advice & Tips: I bought the cream to try to treat my Fibro pain but it was not effective. One night I was experiencing IBS pain and couldn't sleep so on a fluke I tried the cream. It gave me fairly quick relief and was able to sleep. So I tried it again. And again. It works without fail. I haven't noticed (or tracked) if it affects my other symptoms (diarrhea and constipation and I'm not sure about treating the bloating) but it sure is effective for the pain.
Cost: < $25 monthly

  • Burden
    Not at all hard to take
Dosage: 1 g Twice daily
Advice & Tips: I grow my own cannabis and i'm working with different strains. As of now I can keep up with my plants with the help of wife and friends. Tried different sources for processing into oil and got varied results. Some upset my stomach -adding some coconut oil seem to help this. Checked out Charlotte's Web coming out of Colorado. I wanted to get a cutting but they will not give out the plant. You can only order their oil from them (50$ a day). My cost is hard to determine. it's very expensive to grow and it's hard to tell exactly how much it costs me by the time it gets to the finished product.
Cost: $200+ monthly
