Customer Question

I have the preliminary letter giving me access to medical marijuana while waiting to receive my card. At the advice of Oregon's Dr Sims and dispensary people I've been trying tincture (10mg THC & CBD per dropper) and body spray (49mg THC & 58mg CBD per 60ml container). The effects amount to disorientation and unpleasant feelings with no pain relief at all of arthritis. I'm ten months recovered from successful spinal fusion surgery but arthritis continues to do its thing in my back. I also suffer from PMR. Dr Sims gave me every indication that I'll be able to go off morphine, gabapentin and prednisone entirely with cannabis. That's my every hope. What's your advice? Thanks so much.
