Anyone try marinol or plain old pot?

Has anyone tried medicinal marijuana for fibro symptoms? Some have recommended it to me and it's now legal in NY I hear.

I must be the strangest person because it didn't do anything but put me to sleep. Didn't do a thing for the pain.

Re: Anyone try marinol or plain old pot?

Different strains of marijuana work different ways. Some cause more drowsiness where others work on pain. I've had both. But the one I've used the most got rid of all the pain after three hits off a pipe, after a couple hours I'd sleep like a baby...

Mine was the so-called medical marijuana in a baked brownie.

Re: Anyone try marinol or plain old pot?

It affects different people different ways. If you have trouble with insomnia then maybe it is a good thing for you..I know that if I am using it I can only use if I am staying home, I would definitely not use and leave the house. But for pain there is nothing better for me. And for sleep as well. But it doesn't put me to sleep right away, it takes away the pain and after a while I fall to sleep with no problem..peace
