Chronic pain and medical marijuana

Posted by ladyjane85 @ladyjane85, Jul 16, 2016

A nurse friend tried me on marijuana oil smoked in an electronic pen since nothing works with my pain under everything pain management has tried. I did not respond – can one be immune to it as I am with all procedures on my back and all pain relievers

@afibber

You might want to try the oils/tinctures ..apparently, good success with pain management and bodily discomfort. Administered under the tongue and measured by increasing small amounts of tincture. Usually by drops.

please try sublingual CBD it is from the plant, no smoking, no TCH so you don’t get high. It helped a great deal with my chronic pain of nerve damage from a hernia operation.

I just tried the oil (smoked) THC from marijuana 3 diff x’s, and more than
a male would use – no reaction at all.
Am being told of sublingual CBD for pain – do not know price. Then told of
testing for diff meds since either I react badly of they do not help at
all. This is called pharmacogenetic testing or PBx or monecular profiling –
will have to talk to my pain management dr. ladyjane85

WHAT DO U MEAN BY “HIGH DOSES”? i THINK THE LIMIT IS NOW 4 GRAMS/DAY FOR ADULTS BUT CHECK THAT OUT WITH MAYO CLINIC OR PHARTMACIST OR MANUFACTURER.

This was THC, meaning oil made from marijuana. The person said uses three
puffs on electric cigarette, I never got high or felt anything even after 4
puffs – dare not go higher. ladyjane85

I also know that age can effect medication. Recently I had similar problems with some medication that was too strong for me, and I had to reduce the dose until I found the right strength to work without disagreeing with me. The genetic pharaclogy idea sounds good but I don’t know how much it costs. I’d also like to try stem cells especially for my knee which is now bone on bone, to see if cartilage would regenerate. The same might work on my back. I did sign up will 23andme, a genetic testing group for research and family history. I got some information from them on drugs and medicines that could work for me. This was years ago but the data is still good. They had an issue with the FDA and had to stop giving out medical information until the last couple years when the FDA approved some of their results. 23andme now charges $199 for a test, but I do not know what kind of medical information you can get from them now. 19lin

I asked my Mayo doctor about this today….but he had NO idea about it or
how to access it. Who needs to be contacted to have this test done? It
sounds so promising…
Thank you in advance!!

Good morning Vickie,
Mayo clinic is the leading founder in the indusrty on genetic testing and more specificlly parmacogenetic testing. Mayo acct services will help with the insurance coverage. But the doctor could always ask laboratory services. You can share this link with him/her.

One of the nice things about this test is that it is a once-in-a-lifetime test. You don’t need to repeat it because it’s showing which drugs your genes can and cannot break down and that is based on your DNA.

Another valuable part of getting this test done is that the last page has a summary of all your genetic polymorphisms i.e. which pathways work well genetically and which pathways don’t. If you are stuck in an emergency room, you can give this to the emergency doctor who could cross-reference it with drugs that would be appropriate for you in the ER.
We use this in our facility daily. We have better healthcare outcomes, decreased hospital visits, happy patients that are being treated with less medications and reduced cost of medications.
