I'm in Canada where cannabis is now regulated and legal, and I am strongly considering CBD drops to treat my AS and related fatigue/anxiety. I've read quite a few success stories online from other forums that make it sound worth a try.

Anyone have experience (positive or otherwise) with cannabis on Kickas? I've seen one positive post in the RA forum here but otherwise not a lot of mention.

Under Recent Posts, there is a section called Popular Topics. In it is a thread about medical marijuana. Hope it helps you.

Hi Didier,
I experimented with CBD, THC, and a whole plant version, all as extracts. None seemed to effect my pain levels, but THC helps me to sleep. So I’m continuing to use thc drops for that.

My dad has also been put on nabilone or thc to treat seizures (and to treat mood/aggressive behaviour due to Alzheimer’s) and it’s worked very well. He’s off all other meds now, and hasn’t had a seizure in about 2 months.

I’m really glad it’s legal here now. Although I sometimes think its benefits are sometimes exaggerated, I know that some people have been helped by it, and sometimes any help at all is nice to see.

I've been using whole hemp flower via vaporizing. It helps me A LOT, so much that I am looking for ways to get into the industry. Not only for pain and inflammation, it helped immensely with sleep and morning fatigue. Have never felt better in the morning.

I've tried capsules and they work well, but to get enough in my system it was too expensive. Vaporizing the flower was so much cheaper. In the US you can order the flower legally to all 50 states, as long as THC content is less than 0.3% I believe. The sub-reddit r/cbd has a lot of good info.

CBD oil has been amazing for me. I'm opioid free for 16 months now. I was on massive doses of Fentanyl with oxycodone for break though pain for about 18 years. I was my PCP's first patient to try the oil. I was able to back off the pain meds with NO withdrawal. I have since transitioned from sublingual (under the tongue) to the Pechoti method (in the navel). I started with 2 full eyedroppers each day. Now I use 1 drop in my navel 2 or 3 times each day. I'm not pain free, but the pain is where I can handle it. And best of all, the opioid brain fog is gone. The morning stiffness and fatigue are about the same. I buy from a local vendor who bottles her own full spectrum CBD oil. She also makes lotions, salves and other products containing CBD oil. I use the lotion and salve for achy joints and sore muscles. A 15 ml bottle of CBD oil will last me about 2 months (and costs $15).


Back pain since early childhood. Dx'd with HLB27 iritis in '96, AS in 2001, FMS in 2002.
