    Hey guys, I'm one of those rare males with Fibro and so far, the best strain I've found for the pain was 8 Ball Kush from Barney's (photo). A pretty heavy hitting indica, which helps hugely with sleep. As @Mossy says, it's mostly an Afghan I think and all my joint and muscle pain just melts away in a matter of minutes.

    It can be used in the day as it's not as couch locking as something like a GG4 but you gotta go easy if you want to get anything done.

    From Barney's:

    "Some of the very best hashish in the world is found between the mountainous border of Afghanistan & Pakistan. After many years of selectively inbreeding superior genetics from this region, we have now got a strain that is very easy to grow, even in the most unfavourable conditions. This short and sturdy plant is a good choice for both SOG and ScrOG gardens. 8 BALL KUSHâ„¢ grows wide, with thick stems and dark leaves that produce dense buds. The flavours all resemble a classic Kush, earthy and musky, with deep spicy accents."

    I think there could be something in the terp profile that helps too, the kushy, hashy strains seem to work wonder for pain.

    In the day I've been using a sativa (Tangie'matic) which cuts straight through the fogginess caused by Fibro, makes me much more alert and puts a spring in my step. Not as much pain relief per say, but it's the kind of strain that makes you get really into whatever it is you're doing and totally takes my mind off the pain. Both are effective, but both are very different and I can't smoke the Tangie too late in the day without a night cap of the 8 Ball Kush.

    Hope that helps. My current grow is to bolster the indica stash with pain relief in mind, so i'll add my thoughts to this thread once they're good and ready.

    Sorry for your Pain @NiceOption :pass:..sharing one...you share my pain meds and IMO they will work for all degenerate nerve pain.

    Afghan is the Heaviest Pain Killer...but I find a Touch of Kush adds real finesse to it...:headbang:

    Yup..that's where the Mazar comes from which is the basis of JEM....:headbang:

    When I started I listened to various people recommending either Indy or Sati..but my Answer was Affy...
    Energetic taken early...narcotic nerve pain killer and spasm untangler taken over amber....:biggrin:

    The Nose Knows...:headbang:...it is a nose/brain connection...your Primal instinct to self medicate...before doctors were Invented.

    THC doesn't smell...it is the terps...we are attracted to the Right meds by the Smell.......

    It's such a personal reaction. I don't think there's a perfect variety to treat everyone's Fibromyalgia but there is some great advice here. I asked my wife to think back to what was most effective for her over the years. She surprised me a bit and said Kush Van Stitch as far as autos. Buku or Burmese kush was a hit as far as photoperiods. She's a kush gal. I've yet to try a very CBD rich variety for her.

    Sorry to be so tardy to the thread.
