Restless Leg Syndrome

Symptoms

Restless leg syndrome (RLS) is a sensorimotor disorder of the nervous system that causes an irresistible urge to move the legs. People experience various sensations especially when at rest or just before falling asleep. Symptoms include: various sensations in the legs, itchiness, pins and needles, creepy crawly feelings, sleep disturbances, restlessness and inability to fall asleep.

Benefits

Studies have found that the inhalation method works best as it provides relief from RLS within minutes; unfortunately, this can wear off within a couple of hours and should be administered shortly before bedtime. The quickness of inhalation-effect decreases the irritating sensations in the legs, and with strains containing higher levels of THC, the sleep-promoting properties will help bring about sleep and improve overall improve sleep quality. 

Treatment

Due to the nature of RLS, smoking or vaping is most effective right before bed as the effects are felt almost immediately. Doubling-up by consuming an edible, tincture drops, or cannabis oil can help sufferers remain asleep. Indica strains and those high in linalool and myrcene work best due to their relaxing properties. A combination of smoking for the quick effect and an edible can allow for a full and deep night of sleep. 

Method of intake

Mukwa Sleep and Nighttime Pain tinctures, edibles, smoking or vaporizing indica or indica-dominant strains.
