Can I go from daily Morphine to pain control from CBD oil

Posted by 1oldcarnut @1oldcarnut, Mar 16, 2018

I am new at this, so please give me some leeway.
I currently take 2 60mg ER morphine with 3 30 mg fast acting for break thru pain. I have been at this amount for at least 6 years now.
There are many problems taking morphine and with the current anti drug climate I am looking for other ways to manage my pain.

My hopes lean in the direction of CBD oil, and I have had some good results with it so far. It probably will work from 50 to 60% of the time.
I am thinking that I can use CBD oil with THC for the times CBD doesn't work by itself.
One hope I have is I will not be as physically dependent on the CBD and THC as I am on Morphine. Maybe even have some normal days.

My question to the group is, Has any one had any experience in this regard? Will the CBD with THC help me with my withdrawal from the morphine?
My actual time on morphine is close to 14 years. The hardest question is will I be jumping from the frying pan to the fire?

I know I am asking a lot but any help or personal experience would be a great help.

Dude just get weed for all occasions, morning weed(sativa), daily weed( whatever u enjoy during the in between boring hours/ and night weed(Indica dominant) for obvious reasons and yes HEAVY CBD will help with the Psychosis’s takeover of the brain from lowering the opiate.
But u gotta load up with everything from my pepto(just in case. I didn’t need) hunker down for few months(lot o weed, lot o hydration, few vitamins don’t go crazy lotto rest unless u feel like doing something…that’s even better if possible and just start lowering the breakthrough instant release opiate crap first.
You will get down to the base morph your 2 60mg, stay for a week then go down to 3 30mg morph and a “belbuca strip or 2 just in case… then start breaking a little piece(like a crescent moon shape) off the 30mg morph each time you take one!so your really only taking 20mg or so(just don’t crush or snort) breaking a piece offf and not taking it does not affect either piece, then start raking halves or 15s and just keep on going!!! but with enough weed you can eventually lower your morphine to practically nothing….. I did it!!!
And I was same as u…I’m goin on 8 months with no breakthrough meds, maintenance nalaxone strips, but I don’t think u will need strips the younger u are the stronger u r dude…so do it before u get to old bro

@parus….in my experience, I've met potheads that just happen to find some relief in their marijuana. Then, I've met chronic pain sufferers than have found relief in marijuana. The difference is, the long time users actually revel in it, are just so excited to see others turn on to their long enjoyed pleasure. They step in to these discussions armed with all kind of info, some rather useful, but are just so excited because there has been legitimacy found in, may I call it…their vice? I am ambivilent about the legalization of marijuana, and am not prejudiced against users but intelligent conversation is difficult when they are high. Even that is not so bad….intelligent conversation is difficult for my brain damaged brain, anyway. Maybe, if I myself had found grass to be the panacea for me, I too would be giddy, lol. But it's their giddiness, and high, smily faces that somehow gets under my skin. Again, when chronic pain patients use it, find benefit, I am pleased. I'm even pleased longtime users do not have to suffer, really…. Anyway, just opinion, which either one will identify with…or not. Not having a horse in this race, if one disagrees, I respect that.

I would say that Cbd/Thc will never be as good as opioids but they will help, opioids are great for pain. Too bad a doctor is forced to make someone
Suffer by choosing to be bullied into cutting off opioids.
