As I have written previously, CBD alone helped me reduce my oxycodone use from 6 to 4 a day PRN. Adding THC to the CBD (much easier and safer) helps me deal with my chronic pain better emotionally and throughout my day. I have no expectations of being totally pain free since I cannot use any anti inflammatory OTC or prescription drugs and never had back injections. I use buprenorphine patch 20mcg/7 days routinely, drink green tea, take turmeric 2000mg/day and eat an anti inflammatory diet. Except for my chronic level 5-6 back and leg pain I’m in the best shape I’ve ver been in for 69.
