I have tried it but I am unhappy to report that, apparently marijuana doesn't work for me. Or I don't know how to use it. I took it for insomnia and to lose weight. My sister lost 40 lbs and she swears the only thing she did different was marijuana.

I took the edibles and they just made me anxious and feel bad. I had less ability to sleep with them.

I tried vaping but it did nothing zero.

This summer I might try smoking just to see if it does anything positive.

Default Medicinal Cannabis/Has anyone here tried it?Having heard good things tried it today!

I have several chronic illnesses.Depression,mood swings,social anxiety.

I have diabetes 2,so hoping it will bring my blood sugars down,high blood pressure again hope it comes down and high cholesterol too.I have hypothyroidism and sleep apnoea,and irregular heartbeats,again I have heard it can help,as well ,and this it is supposed to aid weight loss too.I need help in all these areas.


Especially I have heard it can help with glaucoma and the deterioration of eye sight,I have glaucoma and high pressure in my eyes so hoping the pressure will come down.


The medicinal cannabis capsules I ordered came today and so I took my first capsule.Immediately it eased the acid in my stomach.It relaxed me and took my anxiety away.It also stopped muscle ache and tension and pain.


It has been 15 hours since I took it I must say I feel good,very relaxed and though it is too early to say I think it will help improve my chronic conditions.I will continue to take one capsule a day as long as I can.


The medicinal cannabis capsules I am taking have had the THC taken out of it so it doesn't make you high,there are no psychotropic effects.It is therefore legal to sell and buy/consume it in the UK,so I am not breaking the law buying and using it.


I am very interested to hear if it has helped anyone else here with their mental health issues or any physical chronic illnesses.From just trying it today and being in back and shoulder pain,I can vouch for the fact it is taking away the pain very well.


Iím so happy that the capsules have helped you!

I use essential oils and I use copaiba oil, essential cannabis oil, and it helps me when Iím really anxious. Thatís what Iíve used it so far for and it does help me. Iíve heard that itís good to use it daily and it helps with many conditions associated with pain and anxiety. Iím going to look into the sugar regulation aspect.

Thank you for posting this!

ETA: The essential oil form of it, like the capsules, does not contain the THC so it does not affect you in that way.

I've been experimenting with CBD and discovered that it does ease my anxiety disorder. I read that it works best with THC, so I found a strain that contains roughly the same amount of CBD and THC.

I was really worried about psychosis, since I have a history of it. In the past MJ has caused unpleasant psychotic symptoms and extreme anxiety. To avoid this I made sure to buy some with a fair amount of CBD. The strain I purchased doesn't cause psychosis and anxiety.

Now I'm thinking of trying a tincture.
