  1. Hi Mark, Well day 6 on the THC CBD Oil and have had to adjust four times. I started on 0/10... no THC...I was up to 25 drops 3 times per day after buy after4 weeks I decided to try the 10/10 50%THC 50%CBD as I was not getting any improvement in my tremor. Wow !! I started 10 drops and was tired and stoned in less then 2 hours...too strong!! Next day I dropped to 5 drops and was tired and groggy!! Next day I dropped to 3 drops and another 2 after 1 hour.....forget it!! Today I called the farm and spoke to the controller of the plant. It was suggested I dilute the 10/10 with the 0/10 making a 5/10 5 being the THC. Luckily I had 8ml of the 0/10 and dropped 4ml of 10/10 and tried it. Big difference, I'm not tired but I am jittery so I'm thinking my body needs to adjust. I have never been tired on Azilect nor had breathing issues. On the two I have only experienced tiredness. I hope I find my balance with the Oil... I believe it works when taken properly. Discovery
  2. Hi Mark, Can you tell me if there's any interaction between Azilect and CBD OIL...9,8mg/ml THC. 9.1mg/ml CBD ? Thank you!
  3. I use CBD Oil....I'm in Canada where it's legal for most part...here is my reply when I questioned my Cannabis farm. Is the Equivalency Factor based on how much cannabis was used to make the cannabis oil? No, not necessarily. As part of the licensing process, Health Canada requires that every Licensed Producer create a way to equate dried cannabis (prescribed in grams by Physicians) to cannabis oil (sold in milliliters). This makes it easier for Physicians to continue to prescribe cannabis in grams per day, and for us to be able to sell cannabis oils to our clients. Our goal was to propose a method of calculation to Health Canada that would maximize the amount of Cannabis Oil our clients were able to buy. We actually have the highest equivalency factor in Canada at the moment (1 g = 12.5 mL for CANNA OIL 20|0). Other LPs have an equivalency factor of 1 g= 3-10 mL for products of similar potency and size. This means that their clients can order less oil, because it takes more away from their 30-day ordering window. Let’s take a look at our recently released lot of CANNA OIL 20|0. It contains approximately 20 mg THC for every mL of oil (fully decarboxylated). So, in a 50 mL bottle, this amounts to approximately 1000 mg of THC (20 mg/mL x 50 mL = 1000 mg THC). Now let’s compare to an “average” concentration of THC in some of the cannabis flowers that we use to make our oil (we’re using whole numbers to make it easy to follow). For the sake of argument, let's say that we use flowers with a potency of 10% THC (on a fully decarboxylated basis). This means that each gram of cannabis flowers contains 100 mg THC (1 gram = 1000 mg, 1000 mg x 0.1 = 100 mg). Theoretically we would have to use 10 grams of flowers to equal 1000 mg of THC (which is what we have in our 50 mL bottles). But this process is not 100% efficient (nothing ever is!). So we have to account for extraction efficiency during cannabis resin production, plus losses from decarboxylation, dilution, and packaging. It actually turns out that we need to use at least 15-20 grams of flowers to make one bottle of cannabis oil.
  4. I chased the rainbow in hopes my diagnoses was wrong...from going to Othropedic Surgeons to spending money on MRI's...Crazy Times...Wasted time and money... However I needed to do my due diligence before I could fully accept and adapt...do whatever you have to, to get to a full acceptance mode. Then and only then can you focus 100% positive on the true battle ahead of you. D
  5. Hi there, My first symptom was no arm swing on my right side. My husband said on day walking to the beach "hey, your arm is not swinging. Why?" Three months later my right hand tremor started. Thats what got me to a Neurologist. Sure enough Parkinson's... You need to get diagnosed....not by the Internet !! Good luck Monolo.... Let us know how it goes...it could be nothing remotely to Parkinson's...I hope so.. D
  6. Wow Luke you are very upset. I support Miracle because of the ongoing support she has given me through the years, I won't apologize for that. I don't think pitting people against each other in your dis take with Miracle is appropriate. I will support you as quickly when it's earned. We all need to understand that we're all at different stages, different head spaces and different approaches on this insidious decease. Chill out. We need all our energy to battle Parkinson's not each other. D
  7. Miracle you are a huge contributor on this forum both as caregiver and as a friend to many of us with PD. Do exactly that...move along from this thread and stay positive! There's always going to be personality upsets. Thank you for being you. D
  8. I've been taking Azilect coming on two years in June. I use it as mono therapy...must do something because I'm not needing Siminet yet. I exercise every day no less then 90 minutes and no less then 12000 steps per day.. D
  9. How does one come to the conclusion of either? D
  10. NN...what a great question to ask Dr.Okun..I like many of us would like to read his answer. Sorry to hear your DH is having such issues. I know how you feel. When my DH was going through his bladder cancer he had an accident or few and it's very defeating indeed. Best of luck to you both. D
  11. Hi Mark I asked the interaction between Rasagiline and the Shingle shot...Azilect is a tad different any worry there? Can't believe 1 out of 3 people who had chicken pox get shingled...yikes Thanks D
  12. Thank Dr. Okun, I only ask because of the expense of the drug. Trying to stretch the dollar but not a great plan at the expense of ones health. D
  13. Dr. Okun If a PWP was to take Azilect 1mg every other day instead of everyday what effect would it have? Discovery
  14. I agree ( not for you Linda )....dislike button would be handy... D
