Hi, @hertz – welcome to Mayo Clinic Connect. You'll note I've moved your post here to this existing discussion on medical marijuana for neuropathy so you can meet up with others discussing this topic, like @wilcy @peggyn @lorirenee1 @johnbishop and others. @artscaping also may have some input on your son's suggestion for using medical marijuana for your pian.

Will you share your exact diagnosis — type of neuropathy, if known — and what type of pain you are experiencing, hertz?

I have used marijuana for pain, and it helps, but made me so high, that I was probably unaware of everything, period. I inhaled very little. The stuff I used was very potent. My pain at that time was very severe, so I appreciated it. However, it is not a state I would like to be in on a regular basis. I really do not have much experience with it at all, but I can tell you, it helped the pain tremendously. I have heard that marijuana is much stronger than it used to be. I really do not know. I would say that if you are at your wits end with pain, do it. Just don't make it a regular thing, because it is not a way to live a life. Lori Renee

@hertz I have a Medical Marijuana Card & I do think it helps relieve the pain. I smoke it which I probably should not but at this age you will do anything for pain relief . It takes the edge off & gives instant relief for awhile. I'm hoping my meds work & then I won't have to do this bc it is expensive. They do have edibles too. Best of luck to you.
