Were they effective?

Not really, I just seemed to end up getting more sick as more medications were added. It doesn't really measure up to cannabis at all...it's all I need now and some of my problems are gone entirely like my hypothyroidism and recurrent UTI's

How long have you been medicating with cannabis?

2 years

What's your effective dosing level?

I vape a few puffs throughout the day to maintain my comfort. Not sure the precise dosing but I find I do better with high potency options so I usually vape concentrate.
Before bed, the oil I use is roughly 20mgs each of CBD and THC. I worked my way up to this point slowly.
I initially started with microdoses via an MCT tincture which allowed me to measure one mg per drop. I used roughly 2 to 3 mgs every four to six hours and 5 mgs before bed plus vaping for immediate effect so I could go straight to sleep.
As I got more tolerant I shifted over to using higher potency distillate oil.

How do you medicate with cannabis??

I vape and ingest distillate oil and use it topically in a lotion. I always combing roughly equal amounts of CBD and THC.
