Recently approved for med marijuana. Currently have vape pens and thc/cbd capsules.

Does anyone have credible knowledge of what miligrams is supposed to work?

I have read clinical trials that were 90% effective however the patients were on a 100 miligram daily dose.

Currently i am trying to increase my dosage but am only up to 10 mil per day.

With no results.

Any info would be appreciated.

Thank you

You need to increase to at least 300 mg dose which is 10 mg capsule; however that is low. If your in a medically approved state for the disease have them start you on 600mg dose (liquid) <equiv> 20 mg capsule. 1-2 x daily, please begin at 1 daily and remember it is not for use in under 21. I hope you feel better soon.

I have a PCP appointment Monday and I'm asking him to file the necessary paperwork (he's approved in my state to do it), I already did the initial application on the state website.

I have been taking RSO for quite some time and feel it is near impossible to get to the recommended dosage amount. If I had a month off I would be able to follow the plan but anything over 100mg and I am flat out for 2 days.

It slows the bowels and solidify my movements very very well tho.

God you guys are so lucky having some States use medical Cannabis..Us in the UK just get low grade low dosage CBD oil which is way too expensive to have any real use. Ive tried the sprays and capsules but just dont think its potent enough..

NJ is way too expensive to buy enough to get near an effective dosage unfortunately.
Was making RSO with the amount I could afford. Lowered C reactive protein but didn't have a substantial effect otherwise.
We do not have capsules, gotta make it myself.
The pharmacutical THC marinol i think? they won't even approve that for Crohns.
