Thanks much Linkadge for sharing optimistic story. My symptom profile is similar to yours except I also have Joint pain from an autoimmune condition (Lupus).

The product I was prescribed for my symptoms is usually started at 12.5 mg CBD/day in divided morning and evening doses, with a suggested weekly titration schedule over 6 weeks or until desired effect is reached, up to as high as 75 mg in 2 divided doses. But due to my concerns about past hypersensitivity to medications and possible interactions with those I still take, they reduced this for me to 8.75 per day to start, most of that in the evening, and titrating up in small increments every 3 to 7 days based on effect. This sublingual oil also contains 2% THC. I received it yesterday, have been a bit nervous about taking it but will try tomorrow morning.

Doctor Clinic follow-up every 3 months or can book one sooner if issues occur (that's covered by our Medicare in Canada, product is not covered, but a portion is tax-deductible).

I thought I'd add that with recent legalization of recreational and non-prescription use in Canada (still being sorted out as far as licensing/regulating those suppliers), there have been concerns expressed about the future supply chain.....

> Yes, I have been using medical cannabis with very good success (almost 1 year now).
> My depression is improved (basically in remission) as is my anxiety and insomnia. The biggest improvement is in my insomnia. I use a combination of CBD and THC. Probably in the ratio ratio CBD:THC = 2:1.
> I still use 300mg of lithium and occasionally a bit of mirtazapine. I have not used benzodiazapines in about a year (I was previously a chronic user).
> The main issue for CBD is cost. For THC, it is cheap to get a large effect. For CBD, doses in the 100's of mg could cose you $10+ a day, without coverage, which is too high for me.
> I use between 20-50mg a day of CBD and 1-2mg of THC a day. However, I don't use THC daily.
> Cannabis has don't wonders for my sypmptom profile: undersleeping, overthinking, anxiety, low appetite, anhedonia etc. I can use a higher THC product 2-3 times a week and have not had any issues with tollerance or withdrawal.
> Suprisingly, the most significant effect is on rumination. After using THC, I just want to move forward. I can 'see' how the rumination isn't helping me and I can very easily chose then to let go.
