I was talking to my doctor the other afternoon and I told him that I had tried numerous marijuanas, but they all made me feel tired.
His first question was how much THC was in the marijuana. I had no idea. I was buying the marijuana the pharmacist at the marijuana dispensary had recommended for me. He told me that the next time I went back to the marijuana dispensary, I should ask for something with a high CBD percentage and a low THC percentage. He said I needed CBD for pain relief and the THC only for relaxation. If I got something that was at least 70% CBD, I would find better relief. I remembered that conversation when I went back to the marijuana dispensary numerous weeks later. I was talking to the pharmacist and she asked how I was doing. I related the conversation I had with my doctor and how he recommended a marijuana product that was high in CBD and lower in THC. She provided me with a product that was called Harlequin. She provided me with a cream and a concentrate that I could use in baking. I honestly enjoyed the Harlequin marijuana product. Within an hour, I saw a big difference in how much pain I was experiencing, and I was able to move more easily. I wasn’t feeling tired or even the slightest bit high. I knew my doctor had finally helped me find a marijuana product that would help me. I still kept our higher THC marijuana product, because I was able to get a wonderful night’s sleep without waking up every hour with muscle spasms.
