Does medical marijuana work for chronic pain?

@jenatdky and others…I have some relief with CBD alone, with general pain, but mostly with the pain I have caused by anxiety and stress I think; That's the way it appears to me, Last year, I tried the combination, 1X1, and found the best relief I've had in 20-30 years. I use it at night and sleep quite well unless the leg/feet/hips/back pains are worse from overdoing. Then, I usually add the 1/1 lotion and/or add a Robaxin or Voltaren cream to help with the topical pain level. I've been known to take a spray of Thc or add 1/2 dropper of tincture in the middle of the night. That calms my issues pretty well, of course, added to my regular medications.
Yes, I read several of your posts on the pain site. I'm relaying my personal experiences. I never used marijuana in college…wasn't around in HS. Wasn't interested in trying something that would alter my mind…didn't drink much alcohol either, unless it tasted good and not for a numbing effect or buzz. Not my thing. But now, I rely on MM for real, serious help.

Oh my I’m so glad you elaborated on your CBD/THC dosing. That is so awesome that you can go to the doctor and get it!

When I told my acupuncturist I was using 25 mg of CBD once or twice a day, she told me the amount of CBD I am using is what she would give to a pet!

I have been buying my oil from Charlottes Web, which is a good brand, but it’s a minute amount compared to what is prescribed by medical marijuana providers. I buy the oil with the highest amount of CBD and it’s not much.

Good to know I am probably wasting my time and money on that amount. I am exploring the possibility of getting CBD tinctures from the acupuncture provider that are more concentrated.

Thanks for uncovering some of the mysteries of medical marijuana. Those of us in states where it is illegal or where medical use only
has recently been passed are clueless. It is hard to find information on the web about this. Hope that changes soon as more people are using it for pain management and more states are passing legislation to allow it.

Thanks again and I think you are one feisty southern lady!

Like you I found a scheme that works well for me. At this point I don't mind getting high once in a while as it helps to deal with anxiety of pain.
