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

@timfitz

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.

If approved in your state then medical use is permitted. You must get an RX from one of their docs and then visit a store that sells varieties of it. The clerks will help you decide what works best.

If you are asking about THC, liquid marijuana that I tried smoking in
electric cigarette, I FL it is not legal. I tried it from a friend – where
he gets it I did not ask. When you write be more specific what was talked
about bec I talk with many on this chat line about many diff things and
meds. Besides it makes you high, I understand, so one cannot do anything
or go anywhere. I did not react to it as I have such troubles with so many
meds.

Not approved in FL, but vote coming up again. Medical kind is very
expensive, and no insurance will cover it I expect. ladyjane85

Thank you so much! I will definitely ask for this upon my return appointment at Mayo!

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.
http://mayoresearch.mayo.edu/center-for-individualized-medicine/drug-gene-testing.asp
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.

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

THC is not typically the right choice for pain management. You need Marijuana oil with high levels of CBD. High THC is helpful if you are looking for sleep or to drive hunger. Higher CBD levels are used to help pain. You have to find the right balance – all MJ strains (there are many!) have different levels of each compound. Currently where I live it is legal with a script and government approval. The oil is manufactured as drops that go under the tongue, not in pill form and not for smoking.. It is high in CBD and low in THC. Most people find relief at some level about 20 to 40 minutes after administration. If the strain you tried does not have high levels of CBD you may not get any relief at all. I’m hoping this is helpful. I was confused for the longest time wondering why sometimes it worked and other times it just made me sleepy until I dug in to do some research. Turns out all pot is not created equally!

I have used a joint when I had pain and one seemed to do it. I think it is as much the strength as it is a persons tolerance

Right- Figuring out how much one needs is certainly individual. But I don’t mean the quantities you need to smoke/eat. I mean that each strain of marijuana has a different amount of the two active ingredients. There are vast numbers of strains of the plant. If you need sleep or appetite stimulation, you want one type of plant. If you are looking for pain management you probably want a different plant that has higher CBD levels. So purchasing it from a dispensary where they know what levels of each compound are is going present.

With my conditions of epilepsy, migraine headaches, pharmacology and
depression prior to my cancer diagnosis and hospice; plus 3rd. stage kidney
disease “I turned the thought of any Marijuana use down, before it had
reached the success it did with Canniblis oil and justifiably so!! When I
can read with significant reseach relative to my health conditions that
“marijuana use before 50 is ok in treating certain conditions, but after 50
can be detrimental, I ask the following? How many are aware that with
marijuana use, they are actually losing certain brain elements, that (being
young–50 or less; most systems can rebuild.” Add that to 50 and above,
when our lives and systems have slowed down in their operation, your not
going to have the systematic tools to rebuild what marijuana has taken
away; since your living and growing at a slower pace.

Many neurologists I’ve also read, have refused to sign on with the
treatment this way. With a doctors training, schooling and experience in
their field or endeavor, many still don’t accept the fact that it has
proven itself as valid as some say. Look at this analogy: “dependant on
the difference between all of our systems and their operations, if you make
a mistake with the brain, there’s no turning back to correct any damage
done.” Think about it.

@jennsprung Thank you for your info – I am in FL where they have not
passed the laws yet. I would not know how to get hold of anything and
asking for a prescription I will think about, but those meds are very
expensive. You explained it for me, however. It would be the sublingual I
would need when it gets thru our legislature. from @ladyjane85

Where can you get this? I heard it is legal in all 50 states – is that true?
