    Restless Leg Syndrome

    Yay! this is a very good day for me and my new card. I would like to know if anyone else suffers from 'restless leg syndrome'? Since the queen in my court is a strain called Odyssey and obviously a newer strain, possibly related to Blueberry, I am wondering if this is the best medicinal choice for RLS.
    If you have ever suffered from this my doctor has said, there are few choices in the medical world and mj is one of the best...Feed back appreciated...

    Re: Restless Leg Syndrome

    from what I have learned so far on this condition, Indica seems to be the best for keeping it under control... it's more of a body high, which slows the thinking process and relaxes the body, putting it on ice, so to speak, temporarily...

    Re: Restless Leg Syndrome

    Ive had SEVERE RLS since before it was ever a diagnosable disorder, stemming from a car 'accident' back in 2002. All I can say is, MJ was like a one-two punch. While I was detoxing off the oxycontin they'd prescribed me is when the RLS started, and that plus the withdrawals made it 100X worse. Apparently when you've taken OC's for more than 3 months, you're not supposed to just stop... guess I should have thought that through...

    So yeah, back to the 1-2 punch... It virtually eliminated my RLS, then helped me get to sleep. Even though I live in RI where medi-jane is available, I havent gotten a script yet. I still use it every single day to combat this damn tingling/dead/cramp/spazm in my legs, and would recommend the same to any/everybody who suffers from it.

    Re: Restless Leg Syndrome

    Now this is starting to make sense. I was in a car accident in AZ in 2000. I am not sure if I ever had RLS prior. thank you for your information and support. RLS is so frustrating and you coined it with your description...Unless you suffer from it, no one can understand it. I have had hours of sleepless nights and by the time I get to sleep, I am so worn out, so hopefully, I can get some relief. I have just never been much on the smoke side. I am more of a grower....but then I am a bit more legal now...so that helps...if any of this makes sense...

    Another great example of the safety and effectiveness of cannabis as compared to mainstream synthetic drugs.

    Re: Restless Leg Syndrome

    I had it often, even after getting in the zone smoking mass quanities of Indica. The Indica really helped me tolerate it tho.
    When I started taking a large dose of potasium and a large does of magnesium daily, it all went away.

    Re: Restless Leg Syndrome

    Thanks -------...I appreciate your response. My Queen, which I have been growing for over a year is Oddyssey....She is supposed to be 100% Indica and is the best strain, I have personally grown.
    My sis...who is a RN...also told me about Potassium...and I will have to pick up some Magnesium...as well....TOTALLY APPRECIATED....As you know..RLS...is one of the most pathetically annoying and for me...personally to the point of tears...ailment..

    On one of my threads....You can see this beauty...probably on several, since I harvest her from Hydro grows a lot...

    Re: Restless Leg Syndrome

    there is a bit of stem and leaf in that jar...but it is holding about a pound....dense, thick nugs....I always trim out excess stem..tho, cause I do not offer my patients leaf or stem for the most part...I think I also trimmed this tray, when I was totally recovering from severe migraine...and just back from hospital....

    Re: Restless Leg Syndrome

    HI everybody: seems I have had this RLS for about 3 years now, some nights better than others. Has anybody had god luck with a particular strain? I'm hesitant to use a sativa since I feel it would keep me up, so I use indica based which seem to be helping. My last treatment was with cookies and blackberry kush which seemed to work fine. I'm interested to see if there are any that other board members have used which yield good results. As well I will get to the health food store and pick up magnesium and potassium.

    As well I am a type 2 diabetic and get tingling feet, i found a natural treatment called hypericum perforatum 30 made by boiron, i pick it up at the health food store.

    My wife likes purple kush for her rls. She bakes it into banana bread and eats a piece an hour before bed. She sleeps like a baby all night long.

    Re: Restless Leg Syndrome

    May I suggest Cannabis Concentrate Oil .... a friend with Parkinson's also has this ??? I know, with the rolling also. The concentrate from Master Kush (Indica) helps immensely dosed properly...not for the euphoric...then he vaps the same oil about 30 minutes after dosing. He keeps improving. Best of luck to all. This also controls sugar levels for diabetics and many many more things for great health. Peace

    Re: Restless Leg Syndrome

    restless legs is so weird and annoying. Lucky, when i do get it squats and stretching can normally take care of it long enough for me to fall asleep.

    Interesting about the potassium and magnesium helping...stupid muscles lol, and what the hell with it not letting someone sleep despite how tired they are... I too only found out within the last couple years that others experience restless legs too, some peeps got it bad...which I don't feel I do, though have even punched my own thigh before out of frustration from it ahahaha....oh btw charlie horses DO NOT work lol
