This all-encompassing disease affects people in different ways and symptoms vary. Patients get very tired, battle to sleep, battle to think clearly or forget things and feel stiff in their muscles and bones. Often there is depression, anxiety, migraines, pain in the pelvis, irritability, an overactive bladder, irritable bowel syndrome and gastrointestinal reflux disease.

How Can Cannabis Oil Benefit Fibromyalgia?
Medical cannabis, cannabis oil, can relieve many of the symptoms related to fibromyalgia including pain, insomnia, fatigue, restless leg syndrome, depression and anxiety. Treating fibromyalgia with cannabis oil means far fewer side effects than pharmaceuticals which can also cause addiction and more pain. Cannabis is a natural pain killer which binds to the cannabinoid receptors found throughout the nervous system and brain. Treat this disease with a blend of THC and CBD for best results. Some patients can then wean themselves off their chronic medication.
Cannabis Therapy suggested treatment guidelines:
Panacea THC/CBD tincture and the patient can take 5 drops twice daily (morning and night).
