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

@jennsprung

This isn’t exact science that I’m using but I did some reading and it kind of made me wonder how little you may be getting.
With the Canadian licenced dispencery CBD oil, patients are dosing just a few drops of oil. I know a lot of pain patients are saying they prefer the oil, and that most of those patients have lots of pain, but their pain is managed with just a few drops. I would be curious to know just how many droppers of the OTC oil would it
take for them to get equivilent CBD content? A dropper sounds like an awful lot.

Is the Canadian CBD the same strength as down here? It’s hard to compare without knowing this.
I use 1-2 ml BID orally. I also use, for break-thru pain, an atomizer of a different formula as the former. 1-2 sprays sub-lingual prn. I have rarely had to use the atomizer due to the pain relief I get from the oral.

I’ve heard of the cbd part that’s helps with pain

I have found my back pain reacts much like a river that floods and finds an easy course to flow. In other words stimulation be it chemical stimulus seems to set e up for a pain cycle. I have avoided self medication of all types and been very cautious with prescribed medications for over ten years now with pretty good success. My gray hair is testament to having lived thru the 60’s and 70’s and although it is tempting, I think I will continue my straight and narrow regiment of exercise and diet. It is working for me, not the most fun at time but neither is flopping around on the ground trying to find relief.

Edina, Mn. 55435
612-207-7463
Call to obtain an appointment.
They also have a clinic on 2801 Wayzeta blvd in Mpls

As to what combination of THC or CBD one should use, they BOTH relieve pain. the Pharmacist that dispenses decides what he thinks will help and it is reviewed monthly when I pick up the meds, The dispensary In my area is Leafline Labs in St Cloud, Mn.

Anything further, contact me by email directly or thru this one.

I take a 50/50 solution of THC and CBD, 2cc orally twice per day and for breakthrough pain I take THC SL. It REALLY helps with my pain.

I am new here. I do not believe Mayo Clinic and Cleveland Clinic should eliminate opioids entirely. It’s wrong, so wrong to suffer. I now live in FL. In NY there is medical marijuana with a great deal of monitoring and restriction. HOWEVER, HAVING TRIED IT FOR MY FINE FIBER NEUROPATHY, NOT CAUSED BY DIABETES, IT WORKED VERY WELL AND I AM LOOKING FORWARD TO ATTEMPT TO GET IT IN FLORIDA. I HAVE FOUND FLORIDA VERY MUCH LACKING IN PROGRESSIVE MEDICAL AND PAIN MANAGEMENT TECHNIQUES, EVEN AT CLEVELAND CLINIC. THE PHYSICIANS HERE REFER ME TO HEALTHCARE IN MA AND NY FOR TREATMENT.
It’s dangerous to ones health to live here.All of my permanent medical problems began from the mistakes of FL physicians… That is probably why they are not required to have malpractice insurance.

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

Agree. I’m 70+ and have used Medical Cannabis for about 4 months and I swear by it. It decreased my pain by about 85%. Why would anyone respond negatively if they have never tried it. 3-4 puffs vaping is NOT a fair trial. I suffer NO ill effects from it’s use. The ONLY negative that I can think of is how my feet and legs feel while taking Marijuana. They are numb. Dead numb. When you remove pain, what is left for me is a profound numbness. I’ll take it over the pain any day.

to Medic 7054-   I tried but had no effect with vaping, but never smoked before .  Does it last much beyond the vaping?  When I need it is when I am going to be active, but one cannot be high and out in public. I fear it did not work on me with 4 puffs is that no meds work on me and my pain gets as high as 9 to 10. Trying CBD spray, expensive, but no response to that either….        @ladyjane85

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.

@lauriedr It is illegal to send any form of pot through the US Mail because it is not legal throughout the country. There are some companies that sell and mail very low grade pot. I would be wary about c Colorado company that does it.

It is a hemp product, called Charlotte's Web. It is even available OTC at pet boutiques around the country. It is guaranteed to have less than .03% THC. It may come through in a drug test, depending on your body, metabolism, and frequency of use. I have contacted reputable companies around the country. So far, these products are not illegal to ship across state lines. They are available on Amazon. I am not worried about breaking the law at this time. I don't think anyone else should either, at this time.Laurie

Hi @ladyjane85. I am not an expert. But I do know much like any other medication, no one person reacts the same. Some drugs or medications are more effective for some verses others. Here’s a link that may give you further insight. Hope it helps alittle.

ladyjane85 Dronabinol is used to treat nausea and vomiting caused by chemotherapy in people who have already taken other medications to treat this type of nausea. Is this your major problem?
