For me this was good, I got a 3 hour stretch of sleep and then a 4 1/2 hour stretch of sleep. I must have been tired, as I took the same of CBD and THC as I have been as well as my slepping aids. I still feel tired but thats normal for me.
At 9:00am I took .3ml of CBD and .2ml of THC. At 12pm I took .3ml of CBD and .2ml of THC and again the same dose at 4:00pm. I am doing well with the micro dosing. At 7:30pm I took my sleeping aids and at 8:00pm I took .3ml of CBD & 1.0ml of THC. Still no nauseous. I wasn't as swollen as I have been in the past few days.
December 7, 2016
Not a great sleep, but managed through the day. Had massage today so I am curious to see how I feel tomorrow. Wasn't swollen this morning, so that is good (I think this is about 3 days since I have actually noticed I wasn't swollen or in as much pain). My mood is fine, no changes there. At 9am, 12pm, & 4pm I took .3ml of CBD and .2ml of THC. I took my sleeping aids at 8pm and at 8:30pm took 1.0ml of THC and .3ml of CBD. I haven't changed doses yet and the micro dosing is truly working well for me. Today was the first day I was an hour late taking my evening pharmaceutical medications. I hadn't even noticed until I was eating dinner. However, I did take them as my body is not quite ready for me to begin taking them away.
December 8, 2016
I actually got 6 hours of straight sleep last night but I was very tired (from lack of sleep - and I didn't change the dose of night THC). It did feel nice to sleep that long. I woke up but didn't want to get up, and I wasn't swollen or sore (this was after my massage yesterday usually I am sore the next day). My dosing hasn't changed so at 9am, 12pm, and 4pm I took .3ml of CBD and .2ml of THC. (I again almost forgot to take my evening meds, not noticing that I needed them so this is the second day now I have done this). At 8pm I took my sleeping aids and at 8:30pm I took .4ml of CBD and 1.0ml of THC - decided I would try to up the CBD during the day beginning tomorrow.
*I have been reminded that in order for my body to heal from all its been through that sleep will be the best for me and to rest and sleep as long as I need to*
December 9, 2016
Didn't sleep well at all, was up and down alot of the night. Definitley feel tired today, not swollen but a little sore in my back area where I had my chiropractor adjustment. At 9:15am, 12:10pm, & 4:00pm I took .3ml of CBD and .2ml of THC. I took my sleeping aids at 7:30pm and at 8:00pm I took .4ml of CBD and 1.4ml of THC. This is the first night I have increased the THC and the second time of increasing the CBD (just wanted to do this at bedtime to start).
December 10, 2016
I didn't get much sleep, seems I am OK to fall asleep, but when I wake in the night to go to the bathroom, I have a hard time falling back asleep. Taking the extra THC last night didn't seem to bother me like it has in the past. Took same doses today at the same times 9am, 12pm, 4pm - .3ml of CBD and .25ml of THC. At 7:30pm I took my sleeping aids and at 8pm I took .4ml of CBD and 1.5ml of THC.
December 11, 2016
I slept almost 5 hours of a stretch, then woke up every 2-3 hours. Still feel tired this morning. Stresses due to a family member, I am sure is playing a part in my tiredness. My doses haven't changed .3ml of CBD and .25ml of THC at 9am, 12pm, & 4pm. I did a lot of house stuff today by putting up Christmas decorations, so lifting boxes out from the crawl space, having my arms above my head, so just more physical today then I have been and of course am curious to see how I feel tomorrow. Didn't feel swollen after doing this, but just a bit of pain more so then the previous days. At 7:30pm I took my sleeping aids & at 8pm I took .4ml of CBD and 1.5ml of THC.
Tomorrow I am going to increase the CBD to .4ml and THC to .3ml and see how I do.
December 12, 2016
Got about a 4 hour stretch of sleep and then woke up off and on (so I am seeing a bit of a different pattern in my sleeping during the night with a few nights of sleeping not bad - its a start!). I will say though that after all that physical work I did yesterday I didn't feel much pain or swelling when I woke up, so for me thats awesome. I am definitely not waking up with pain like I used to (its been aprox 1 month since restarting the cannabis and micro dosing). At 9:15am, and 12:30pm I took .4ml of CBD and .3ml of THC. I was very tired in the afternoon so I layed down on the couch and at 4:30pm I only took .3ml of CBD and .2ml of THC. I wasn't feeling great when I took the cannabis and some of my pharm meds. Maybe too much CBD being up at the .4ml? or maybe its cuz I am getting sick (hubby is sick). Seemed to have some cramping from my IBS haven't had that in a long time again might be from stress from a family member (I am not prepared to go into detail with this as it has nothing to do with my cannabis journey). I did however, at 7:30pm take my sleeping aids and 8pm took .4ml of CBD but only 1.0ml of THC instead of the 1.5ml I had been taking.
December 13, 2016
I can't really tell if I am getting sick with a cold or just plain tired because of not sleeping well or just stress from life situation. I didn't sleep well at all, only got about 2 hours at a time. At 9am I took .3ml of CBD and .25ml of THC (slightly lower at this time of day) but at 12pm I took .4ml of CBD and .3ml of THC - at 4pm I decided to change things a bit (won't know till I try) but I took .3ml of CBD and .3ml of THC - so the THC was higher then usual. At 8pm I took my sleeping aids and at 8:30pm I took .4ml of CBD and 1.0ml of THC - I am playing with the doses a bit but I need to see how I do.
December 14, 2016
I actually had an OK sleep, don't feel rested but it was better. Don't seem to have alot of energy but I know this comes and goes, but is it too much CBD? Will just have to play with the doses and see. But I am roughly injesting 35ml a day because the ratio I am taking is 30:1 for CBD. I am not waking up in pain like I used to, actually it was the pain that would continuously wake me up, so that is nice. I don't have much swelling either at least not like I did before. At 9am I took .3ml of CBD & .25ml of THC, at 12pm I took .4ml of CBD and .3ml of THC, at 4pm I took .3ml of CBD and .25ml of THC. At 8pm I took my sleeping aids and at 8:30pm I took .4ml of CBD and 1.0ml of THC - this is a new bottle from a different company, only trying this as I got it as a sample. The ratio is 15:1 THC
December 15, 2016
I slept OK last night got about a 4 hour stretch, then 3 hours, but able to fall back asleep quickly when I get up to use the bathroom. Not sore at all from massage yesterday so again its nice. At 9am I took .3ml of CBD & .3ml of THC - this same dose at 12pm and 4pm. I think I will keep this dose for a few days trying to match the THC with the CBD dose. At 8:00pm took my sleeping aids and at 8:30pm took .4ml of CBD and 1.0ml of THC.
*I am still taking all my pharmecutical medications and doing well with the micro dosing, although I have played around with the doses of Cannabis I am just trying to find out where I need to be and that is by trial and error. I am at about 35ml of CBD a day (ratio 30:1) and 25 to 30ml of THC (ratio 10:1) this is the daytime THC.* The night THC is 15:1 for ratio.
December 16, 2016
I slept OK again about a 4-5 hour stretch, I didn't want to get up though. At 9am, 12pm, & 4pm I took .3ml of CBD and .3ml of THC. I did some vacuuming today so am curious as to how I will feel tomorrow. I was certainly not sore this morning when I woke up even after I had done removing of some shelves and food. Not swollen either. Hoping for another good sleep tonight, but I will say my throat is sore and my nose is running down the back of my throat - again not sure if its just because I am tired or if I am catching a cold. At 7:30pm I took my sleeping aids and at 8pm I took .4ml of CBD and 1.0ml of THC.
**When I speak of my sore throat and my nose seemingly dripping down the back of my throat - these are symptoms I get because of my CFS - Chronic Fatigue Syndrome especially the sore throat, the more tired I am the sorer my throat is**
December 17, 2016
Not a bad sleep, I got about a 3 hour stretch, but seemed to be able to fall back asleep easily when I woke up during the night. Was a bit swollen this morning, not a lot though, and not much pain either, especially after the vacuuming I did yesterday - so overall I was pleased with how my body was in the morning. Took my regular doses at the regular times. However, I did have a very bad headache in the afternoon, a migraine, I did take a migraine pill, and went to bed with a headache.
**I will be just stating that I am taking my regular doses at regular times now instead of listing the times etc. IF it changes, I will add it into my entry - .3ml of CBD, & .3ml of THC, with 1.0ml of THC at bedtime**
December 18, 2016
I didn't have a great sleep, maybe a 3 hour stretch then kept waking up, at least I didn't wake up with a headache. However, I did wake up much more swollen and sore today - not sure why. Could it be that I have taken less CBD (only because I wanted to see how I would be, as well as, I was running low on CBD.) Today I only was able to take .25ml of CBD during the day. As the day went on I became less sore and swollen, except for my low back - which has been bothering me for quite some time. I did take .4ml of CBD and 1.25ml of THC at bedtime (I have upped the THC tonight)
**My eyes do get puffy in the morning which I believe is from the THC and can be common in people. And sometimes my eyes feel dry, which I believe is from the THC as well, and my right ear is plugged with increases of THC, but not as bad as it was before in the summer.**
December 19, 2016
I slept a bit better with a 4 hour stretch, but again seemed to easily fall back asleep when I woke. I did feel the extra THC I had last night, with my ear being plugged etc, but nothing like it used to be. I hope to still gradually increase the THC. I was a little swollen this morning but not in pain, like I was yesterday. Took my regular doses at regular times.
December 20, 2016
The increase of THC at bedtime seems to be OK. Took my regular doses at regular times today. 1.30ml of THC at bedtime along with my sleeping aids.
December 21 - 24, 2016
Doses at same time which is .4ml of CBD and .4ml of THC (a increase in both, just to see how I handle them). Still using the ratio of 30:1 for CBD and 10:1 for daytime THC and 15:1 at night. Each of these days my sleep was on and off. Not feeling sore or swollen during these days.
December 25 - 29, 2016
I am back to doing .3ml of CBD and THC except for bedtime, where I am taking between 1.0ml & 2.0ml depending on how I feel at night. I was a bit sore on the morning of Dec 25, but the day before we had our Christmas dinner so I was moving around a lot. So all doses taken at regular times. On the 28 I noted I was more sore and swollen (again less CBD as I was running low?). Night time sleep has been hit and miss.
December 30, 2016
I actually had a decent sleep, albeit my lights were out by 8:30pm. Not really sore or swollen, hoping I have the doses right now. Doses at regular times today.
**Still don't seem to have much energy, so its either because I haven't been sleeping well or still working on the doses**
December 31, 2016
At 9am and 12pm I took my doses, but didn't take the 4pm dose as I wasn't feeling well for some reason. I was sore and swollen again today.
January 1, 2017
Not a great sleep but I took less of my sleeping aids. A bit sore and swollen this morning. Just feel tired overall. Took my regular doses at regular times.
**My mood has been fine and I am certainly not having the side effects that I had before in August/September/October. It just furthers my mind that going off the Gabapentin cold turkey was the cause of a lot of how I was feeling**
January 2, 2017
I had a 4 hour straight stretch of sleep, after that I just kept waking up. Took my doses at regular time (.3ml of CBD and .7ml of THC). Didn't notice any pain or swelling this morning for me. I did my usual for bedtime.
January 3, 2017
I slept OK - not great. I did have some hot flushes once in the night, so I am not sure why, if it is from the cutback on Estrogel for a few days. I do seem to go between .4ml and .3ml for CBD and that works for me, as well as the THC amount which goes from .5ml to .7ml. I did miss a dose today as I was out. I don't feel any ill effects with taking a higher amount of THC during the day.
January 4, 2017
I slept better, even slept in till 8am - thats rare for me! Took my regular doses today at regular times. I felt I had more energy today, which I am sure was due to the fact that I slept well last night. I did take a Zomig in the late afternoon as I had a terrible migraine which I think was from the massage.
January 5, 2017
Not a great sleep, certainly not like the night before, but at least my headache was gone by morning. I've always known this, but yesterday confirmed it more that when I get a really good sleep, I have much more energy the next day. Took my regular doses at regular times. I took only 1/2 of my Emtec at my dinner/evening medication. I am now decreasing this medication. Didn't notice any pain or swelling this morning.
January 6, 2017
Sleep was about the same, not great, but could have been worse. I didn't notice any pain or swelling this morning. I missed my noon dose today, and seemed to notice it, as we were doing some packing and I didn't take it with me. I am curious to see how I feel the next day. I did feel sore after the packing. But otherwise I took my doses at regular times. The night time dose is still .4ml of CBD with 3.0ml of THC.
January 7, 2017
Not a bad sleep, I seem to do pretty well up until about 4 or 5am. then I toss and turn. I was a bit sore this morning, but I thought it would be worse after all I did yesterday. Took all my doses at regular times today.
January 8, 2017
I slept ok, with a few hours of straight stretch of sleep. I was a bit sore in the shoulder area, but seemed to settle down quickly. Took my regular doses at regular times.
January 9, 2017
I felt like I slept good, with a decent stretch of sleep. But I did wake up sore in the shoulders, and at 3:30pm I was still sore, not sure why, and I have been more tired then usual today. May have been how I was sitting today as I was visiting a friend. I missed the noon dose because I didn't have it with me, but otherwise I took all the other doses at regular times.
January 10, 2017
Not a good sleep at all, and woke up with my shoulders being sore again. However, I did take all my doses at the regular times.
**I am still only taking 1/2 of my Emtec at my evening/dinner medication - so far so good**
January 11 - 15, 2017
Sleep has been hit or miss, I do however, usually get at least a 4 hour straight stretch, then I will wake up 2-3 hours later. So during these nights sometimes I slept OK and sometimes I didn't. I took all of my doses at the regular times. Still taking all the same doses and at regular times. My back is still bothering me, but I continue to see the Chiropractor.
January 16, 2017
I had a better sleep, but still feel tired, which is common. I did wake up a bit more swollen this morning - weather? Today I took my regular doses at regular times. However, this is a new bottle with the ratio of 15:1 where I usually get the 30:1 for CBD so I have had to adjust my doses based on what I was taking before and with the new bottle.
**I've noticed I haven't had a lot of energy in the past few weeks, even when I have had a decent sleep - well decent for me. Is it too much CBD? THC? or taking less of the Emtec (withdrawal)? Or is it just how I am suppose to be. Still getting the odd hot flush during the night and day**
January 17, 2017
Didn't sleep well at all, my nose was running down the back of my throat and I ended up having to take a nose pill at 2:30am, along with 2 Valium to help me get some sleep. Definitely hot flashes through the night and all day so far. I'm even feeling nauseous today which I haven't felt in a long while. Now is this because its a new bottle, with a lower ratio (even though I am trying to factor in the same amount of CBD when I take it, and I think I am doing pretty good with that) or is it being on a lower dose of Emtec, could it be anxiety? I honestly don't know but I am trying hard to watch when I begin a new bottle of Cannabis if these symptoms arise when that happens. I took my proper doses at 9am and 12pm, but just couldn't master the 4pm as I wasn't feeling well. I did take the bedtime dose though. Also had a bit of heartburn this morning.
January 18, 2017
I was awake every 2 hours last night so I didn't sleep well. This morning I woke up with every muscle hurting and I am swollen. I am definitely very, very tired today, with a slight headache. Weather?? New bottle, with a different ratio of CBD? It seems I haven't slept very good for a few days, and for some reason this is how I am. I will sleep decent for a few days, then it stops and I don't sleep well for a few days and I go back and forth like that. Have heart burn this morning. Took all my doses today at the same times. At bedtime though I opened a new bottle of the THC (from a different company then I had been purchasing from) I did however take the same dose as I would have. It did feel a bit stronger for me or maybe its just because its from a different company, but I did end up feeling a bit high from it, but I didn't have a bad experience, and I knew by taking it at night I would just sleep through it, and thats what I did.
**I have & am trying different product from a different company to a) find out if the other one I was using was working for me and if so, how well b) to test other products out so I know which one is right for me**
January 19 - 22, 2017
Slept pretty good for these nights and one night I even got a 5 hour stretch. On the 19th morning I did feel sore and swollen but not as bad as yesterday. Took all my doses at the regular times.
January 23 - 25, 2017
Sleeping has been OK. All my doses are the same at the same time as well. I did have my bladder surgery on the 25, so I couldn't take all the doses that day. He saw no difference in my bladder from before, so it will be interesting to see if its different at the next surgery. Having some hot flushes today. I will admit that I seem to feel more swelling in my hands these days, could be the cold, cold weather we are having.
January 26 & 27, 2017
Not sleeping at night again, however, I have still taken all my doses and at regular times. Still not sure why I don't have much energy during the day with the exception I am sure not sleeping well doesn't help.
January 28, 2017
So today I am starting a new bottle of CBD and THC a 1:1 combo (this product is a new one that I haven't tried but from the same company I have used products before - this one however, is not the same product I have been using for the past 6 months) I have found that it takes my body about 2 hours before I can feel anything where as before it was about 1 1/2 hours - not a big deal though. I started with a high dose of 1.0ml but it was too much so I will have to cut it back. I didn't take the noon dose, or 4pm one. I seem to be more swollen on and off today, new product? weather? I was very bloated today and had an episode of my IBS which I haven't had in a long time. I did however, take the night time dose which was .5ml of the 1:1 ratio, as well as 2.0ml of night time THC. One full ml is 7.4 so half of that is 3.4ml (.5ml).
**Since I have started using the product with the ratio of 15:1 for CBD I seem to be swelling more during the day, getting hot flashes as well. I don't have a lot of energy, but I haven't slept great for the month of January**
January 29, 2017
I didn't sleep great. I have reduced the daytime dose to .25ml and that is better for me during the day, again this is the bottle with the 1:1 ratio which is 7.4ml of CBD and roughly the same of THC (its in the same bottle this time, where as before, I was taking both separately). My night time dose is still the same with the bottle of 1:1 and I take .5ml and then 2.0ml of just THC (same company for bottle). I have also noticed that my right knee is so sore - again weather? its cold out.
January 30, 2017
I felt I slept OK, yet still tired. I did wake up very sore and swollen today
but as the day progressed it got better. So same dose .25ml at 9am, 12pm and 4pm with the bedtime dose being .5ml of the 1:1 and 2.0ml of the Indica THC. I am still taking all my pharmaceutical medications.
January 31, 2017
I was a bit swollen this morning, slept OK. I took all my doses at the regular times.
February 1 - 7, 2017
Been sleeping OK during these times, and it does feel nice to get a somewhat decent sleep. On the 1 and 2, I was sore and swollen but I felt it mostly in my legs. For the 3, 4, 5, 6, & 7th, I was mostly feeling a bit swollen, and only a bit of pain. All doses are the same with it being at the regular times.
February 8, 2017
A bit swollen this morning. Didn't sleep well at all. Hot flushes again, doses the same and at same times.
February 9 & 10, 2017
Slept decent for me, woke up a bit swollen and sore in my shoulders.
February 11, 2017
Woke up tired even though I slept decent. More sore and swollen today then yesterday, warmer weather change? Hot flushes again, still don't know why. I did 2 hours of housework today.
February 12, 2017
Not a great sleep, and was a bit sore and swollen this morning, however I expected to be more swollen - cannabis does help! I finished a different product today, not sure if it helped or not compared to what I had been using, but I want to say it wasn't as helpful, with the exception of the fact I used this product and the one I use the most at night and that seems to help a bit more with sleep.
February 13, 2017
A decent sleep (yes still taking my sleeping pills and other aids - hoping to cut them all back soon, but not until I know for sure I will get a decent sleep with just the cannabis). Doses are the same and at same time - so based on the ratio being 15:1 for CBD I am taking 50ml a day at 3X a day, and THC is .05ml 3X a day and at bedtime it is 4.0ml based on a ration of 10:1.
February 14, 2017
I started out not sleeping well, so I got up to take an OTC pill and then I fell asleep for about a 5 hour stretch and then another 4 1/2 hour stretch, it does feel good to sleep at night. Only a little swollen in my hands this morning. My right knee is sore but that is probably the weather, due to my arthritis.
February 15, 16, 17, 18, 2017
All these days I had decent sleep. Swollen feeling in my hands and legs on a few of these days. Hot flashes still.
February 19, 2017
An OK sleep, still a bit sore and swollen (which is usually in my hands and the soreness is in my legs or shoulders.
February 20, 2017
Only slept OK, but still felt tired today. Woke quite sore and swollen.
February 21, 2017
Decent sleep, more enegery today then the previous 2 days. Sore in my shoulders and legs with a bit swelling, but seemed to go away fairly fast. Went for a walk with Lucy today.
February 22 & 23, 2017
Decent sleep, still a bit sore in my usual places, but did have an IBS attack this morning, no idea why.
February 24, 2017
Not a great sleep, still have a bit of swelling and soreness this morning, another IBS attack in morning.
February 25, 2017
Decent sleep, have started a new bottle of the usual product I buy with the CBD ratio of 30:1. Hot flashes today again still don't know why. Same doses and same times.
February 26, 2017
Decent sleep, a bit sore and swollen. I am taking 1 less dose now usually the noon one b/c I am finding financially its hard.
February 27 & 28, 2017
Decent sleep, same dose during the day, except I am still not taking the noon dose of CBD, but doing THC. Went to a friends place to help out.
March 1, 2017
Decent sleep, same doses, woke up very sore and swollen, could be from the night before when I was at a friends house helping out.
