    I would like to get some of the cbd's but our local dispenaries are not allowed to sell any MJ products right now due to a county wide year moratorium. I have terrible back pain and my pain doc will not allow me to use MJ, it is either opiates or MJ not both. I cannot function on MJ during the day, especially when I am in school. I may try to contact one of our other D's in the north maybe they can help! I did make some at home but it still had THC and it was very potent, but it did cure my husband's cancer! yeah!!

    Choosing which variety of cannabis is best for your particular condition is quite complicated. In most medicinal cannabis strains, THC makes up the majority of the active ingredients, while CBD represents a much smaller fraction.

    The effects of cannabis may disappear rapidly after digestion, but its energetic component, tetra hydrocannabinol, can persist and be noticed in the body for weeks, and may be 1-2 months. This may depend on how the ingredient is digested.
