  1. Medical Marijuana

    On my recent vacation to Colorado I used indica based THC lozenges/patches along with CBD edibles at a 1:1and 2:1 ratio on the CBD side. I had wonderful results and was able to decrease my daily sinemet dose by 1 pill a day. I know everyone is different in their regime and reacts differently. It's a damn shame more emphasis isn't being put into this research from the PD community at large.

    Found this interesting: https://cannasense.com/
  3. Post diagnosis projects and accomplishments.

    Took a vacation and hiked in Colorado. Going back for a second time this summer. Completed large custom fabricated metal railings on our home balconies. Continued bowhunting with my son as he got his first deer from a ground blind (no more tree stands for me). Ran a lot of 5K's and completed the Warrior Dash last weekend (whew)! Almost 4 years past diagnosis, Keep hammering!
  4. What helps with Dyskinesia?

    Bill, likely not because Marinol is isolated THC meaning it doesn't contain other cannabinoids such as CBD. They currently have Sativex available in other countries for MS spasticity. Here's the link https://www.gwpharm.com/products-pipeline/sativex it would be nice if we had such medication options here.

    Lethe That link doesn't seem to take me to the actual device logistics. Seems logical, but I'm a nerdy engineering type. Thanks man.

    Thanks Murray. I know that this is a hot button topic. I only mean well and try to open people's minds to the options. Education is truly the key.

    Some good news. http://cannabadger.com/breaking-news/2017/02/08/wisconsin-senate-passes-cbd-bill-31-1/ Please continue to contact our representatives to help forward this and companion legislation.

    There may be some hope yet. I have tried to reach out to whoever in our local government will listen. http://cannabadger.com/cbd/2017/02/03/senate-cbd-bill-heads-for-floor-vote-assembly-version-introduced/ Please reach out to the public officials to help our cause.

    Some good news. Although not a comprehensive medical cannabis bill, it does include other medical conditions. http://cannabadger.com/cbd/2017/01/26/senate-cbd-bill-public-hearing-set-for-jan-31/

    This is the unfortunate reality in which I live as well, albeit with PD. I have emailed every representative, senator, congressperson, that I can think of. As well I have contacted the MPP to try and get some support on this issue. Most of which to no avail or automated response. The current "legislation" and even the supposed to be introduced "legislation" is an absolute joke. I truly believe a move will be in my future.
