Fibromyalgia syndrome is a chronic health disorder creating symptoms of widely spreaded pain throughout the body as a result of overactive nerves. The pain and symptoms can fluctuate with intensity, known to often interfere with daily activities. A few symptoms of fibromyalgia include sensitive to touch, sleep disturbances, exhaustion, anxiety, and headaches. The most simple interactions, such as a hug or touch, can bring a wave of pain to those suffering from this disease. In recent studies, we have learned how microdosing marijuana can ease fibromyalgia symptoms, offering patients a new form of relief.
Treating Fibromyalgia with Pharmaceuticals
Unfortunately, there is no cure for fibromyalgia and the pain that comes with this condition. However, the Food and Drug Administration have approved three medications to treat fibro: Lyrica, Cymbalta, and Savella. All three medications warn against allergic reactions and suicidal thoughts. When the recommended prescriptions don’t work or bring unwanted side effects, most patients seek other treatments. For many, cannabis is the answer.
Treating Fibromyalgia with Microdosing Marijuana
Patients suffering from fibro have found microdosing marijuana to be an effective treatment option to manage symptoms. Microdosing is the practice of consuming small amounts of marijuana, gaining the medical benefits without the “high” sensation. This can be done by hitting a small vape throughout the day, ingesting appropriate dosing of edibles, or using a tincture drop in hot tea.
Determining how much or how often one should microdose will require patience and experimentation. Having a trusting medical marijuana dispensary guide you will provide reassurance, helping you find what works best for your body.
