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

@ladyjane85

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

“For certain health conditions, non-THC marijuana is available by prescription from a specially-licensed doctor in the state of Minnesota.”

Reply: THC is certainly legal in Minnesota, as is CBD, and a mixture of both.

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!!

I simply asked my non-Mayo primary physcian if he thought I could benefit from Medical Cannabis. He agreed and researched Minnesota’s laws and found out just what I needed to do including the prescribing MD and the name of the lab/distributor. I am surprised Mayo does not at least find out the information you needed.

In Minnesota it costs $250 for a MD exam from one who is licensed to evaluate patients for the state. He then will send prescription to a state approved lab. After meeting with their pharmacist he then determines what blend of Cannabis is right for you. In my case, it cost $270 for a one months supply. You have to determine if you can afford it or not and just what pain relief is worth to you. This information is for Minnesota only. You must be a resident of the state and may not transport the drug across state lines, especially to a state where it is illegal.

Thank you! This info is greatly appreciated. My neurologist wants to try nerve pain drugs and injections first. But I will keep your info!

@medic7054 Glad your state has medical marijuana. Can you tell me if it is
very expensive?ladyjane85 @

You probably didn’t get enough of an amount to make a decision.

Thank you for telling me how it is done in a state where it is legal and the costs incurred. We’ll see if it passes in FL. @ladyjane85

I live in MN, and have TRIGEMINAL NERVE PAIN.. what clinic prescribes this? My meds don’t work. I really don’t want to feel dragged though.

I don’t think you gave it a proper trial. 3 puffs will not give you noticeable pain relief.
