Which Medical Marijuana Strains Are The Best For Fibromyalgia?


The Top 7 Marijuana Strains For Treating Fibromyalgia

By Scrog Betty

This headline popped out at me the other day…“While self-medicating with cannabinoids may provide some pain relief to fibromyalgia patients, we caution against general use of illicit drugs;“ the journal of Arthritis Care & Research. As a general rule of thumb, I tend to take those types of warnings with a grain of salt. Instead — my primary thought process headed in another direction. Rather than warning the already supportive masses, against a plant we all know to be helpful, I was led to wonder…what would be the right strain of medical marijuana for such an ailment.

In a world loaded with over the counter prescription drugs, a new study has found approximately 10 % of fibromyalgia patients choose to medicate with medicinal marijuana as a means of relieving their related discomforts such as insomnia, fatigue, and pain.

Standard drug treatments for fibromyalgia-related pain provide only modest relief, and some patients self-medicate with marijuana and other traditional therapies, said Dr. Mary-Ann Fitzcharles, a professor of medicine at McGill University and consulting rheumatologist at the Montreal General Hospital of the McGill University Health Centre in Montreal.

She and her colleagues looked at the use of marijuana or prescription cannabinoids such as nabilone and dronabinol among 302 patients with fibromyalgia and 155 patients with another chronic pain condition.

About 13 percent of all 457 patients used cannabinoids, with 80 percent using marijuana. Smaller numbers used prescription cannabinoids, according to the study findings published online June 21 in the journal Arthritis Care & Research. [source]

The report then goes on to point out that of the fibromyalgia patients who consumed medical marijuana in the fight for a reduced level of pain in their life, 72% claimed to only need about one gram of weed or less per day (about $15). When compared to the soul crushing prices that big pharmaceutical business charge for their opioids, its no surprise they fear this wonder plant.

After doing a little digging this morning. I came up these magnificent seven medical marijuana strains that represent a wide spectrum of cannabinoids available to help with pain reduction in fibromyalgia patients. These cannabinoids have several well-documented beneficial effects for many aliments.

  4. Excellent site. A lot of useful information here.

    And of course, thank you to your sweat!

  5. Unlike the past, people have now turned out to be quite selective about their
    clothing. So I paid a little more and I think I
    got Something of very high quality in my Palisades
    Longboard. Clowns are often as scary to some as they are funny to others.
    The streets are littered with Western attire among the black suits of the Hasidic and Orthodox culture.

    Traditional attire in Israel is similar to western style.
    Life tip: It’s your look that matters – not the label. Some higher presence or your higher self may have been using Napoleon,
    an archetypal image or symbol, as a way of telling you to knock off the Napoleonic behavior at work.

    Can you recommend a specific vaporizer and would you happen to happen to have a link? :)

  7. None will leave you dragging the next day. For sleep, you want an Indica, like I said LSD is the best strain I’ve tried for, most of my symptoms, insomnia included.

  8. I am trying to reduce the meds im taking, or eliminate them altogether. Im on Lyric,a, Gabapentin, Baclofen and flexerol.

  9. I have found the LSD strain to be helpful. I vape and use medibles. Granddaddy purp is another that helps reduce pain.
    I did try a tiny bit of blue dream and loved it.
    Thanks for the list, Ill keep my eye out for the other strsins.

  10. While I am waiting for cannabis to be legal in my state I am trying to research what strains would be best for me. I have suffered with Fibromyalgia since the late 1970’s, about 35 to 36 years. Back then you were sent to a Rheumatologist – they really had no idea how to treat it. 1996 I found a doctor who also had Fibro, treated it with all sorts of different meds. I got a lot of relief but the meds had lots of side effects. I have been using ambien for sleep ever since – not a great idea. In the begining it was great for sleep which helped get rid of the fibro fog, but it is no longer very effective and I am looking for something else. The problem is that if I don’t use it, I don’t sleep for days at a time and my body and mind get really weird and then the pain increases. I have the pain, fatigue, and sleeplessness. I guess I would first like to address the difficulty sleeping (because that makes the rest worst). What sort of strains help you get to sleep but don’t leave you dragging the next day…

  11. Humm if I could only get my dr. to help but it’s not legal here . If only….. I’m so tired of the constant pain and sleeplessness and all the mass amount of drugs dr. wants me on (I don’t take :/) chronic migraines fibromyalgia you name it it all goes goes together.
