Welcome @bonnieh, you are not jumping in you are just joining us as we explore medical cannabis options and opportunities, Do you still see your Mayo doctor? Do you live in a marijuana legal state? In some states like Minnesota you must have a specific diagnosis and chronic pain is one. In other states you can just register with a dispensary. They often have pharmacists who specialize in helping you get started and monitor your experience,

In other states you are your own prescriber and must monitor your own experiences, Choosing medical cannabis doesn’t mean you are replacing prescribed medications,, You only need two products, topicals and tinctures, And you need to memorize this phrase....you can always have more, you cannot have less. Take it easy. Here is a good site to start,

If you would like to get started please let me know where you live and what you are now using for pain.

May you be free of suffering and the causes of suffering,

I live in MN. I see Mayo doctors every 3 months in their pain center. I am currently taking Hydrocodone every 6 hours and Pregabalin 3 times a day for chronic pain. I also get 3 nerve blocks every 3 months.

I'm jumping in also please. I'm interested but I've been told by Noth in Arizona that you can't be on anything with the if you are taking pain meds. Is this true in Arizona?

Living in pain is the worst. For everyone who does have to live with this burden. Yea for you. Please do not think you understand. You don't, you can't no matter how smart you are. I hope you never have too either. Its hell on earth. The pain can change you, and not always for the better. If you had any idea how bad it is. You would understand why we the tortured are willing to do almost anything to have some quality of life. Just consider how many comit suicide to escape the pain. Right, it's that bad and tragic. You cannot tell me how tragic it is that some people have overdosed on opiates and that it is why it is right the rest of us endlessly suffer until we are dead.
