Started vaping with high potential medical marijuana! Have neuropathy in feet and starting in hands! About to be in wheelchair! It doesn’t even relax me! Any suggestions?

Wilcy, Kratom is a plant, sold in powder form. It is good for relaxation and taking away pain. I researched the use of it quite extensively. Go to Happy Hippo on line, to see their choices. It is a very reputable company, and sells fresh stuff, that works. Buy a slow strain for relaxation and pain relief. Let me know if you need any more info. Good luck!!! Lori Renee

Have spinal stenosis and neuropathy in my feet! Tried everything! Primary told me to try medical marijuana! This is all new to me! Anyway, tried vaping about 10 different strands! Really wierd! Pain free!
Is medical marijuana different than regular marijuana? I have smoked marijuana for neuropathy pain, and it totally helped the pain. However, I was "high." and I would not want to be high in order to get rid of pain. It's ok when I am desperate for pain relief, but I would not want it to be what I do to not be in pain on a regular basis. Because of this, I have used Kratom. Kratom really helps pain, without making me high. It works better than anything I know. However, I know I need to be careful using it. Marijuana will be legalized in Illinois in January. That will help me to decide if marijuana is something I want to use for pain. I am glad you are not in pain. Neuropathy can be so severe and horrid. It is good you are getting relief. Lori
Hi @wilcy, This discussion is pretty similar to another discussion you started. I'm tagging our moderator @lisalucier to see if we should combine this discussion here so more members will see your post and it will bring the two discussions together.

I don’t smoke but I have had Amazing relief using RSO (Rick Simpson Oil) or FECO (full extract cannabis oil) My Neuropathy, My Tinnitus, and my Depression Have all improved!
I have tried at least 5 different CBd oils without success the last one was 6,000 strong and tasted awful from Lazarus could you please tell me where to find the rso oil you are talking about. I would like to see if it helps me i,m 73 old and don,t smoke.
@wilcy – I did move your other similar discussion on medical marijuana for neuropathy here to join this one so all those talking about this topic could be together in one place.
Are you pursuing other therapies in addition to the medical marijuana at this time for your spinal stenosis and neuropathy, or just focusing on that one?
MY SON THINKS MARIJUANA IS THE ANSWER FOR MY PAIN. CAN I HAVE SOME FEEDBACK FROM ONE WHOSE THOUGHTS ARE SAME?
Hi, @hertz – welcome to Mayo Clinic Connect. You'll note I've moved your post here to this existing discussion on medical marijuana for neuropathy so you can meet up with others discussing this topic, like @wilcy @peggyn @lorirenee1 @johnbishop and others. @artscaping also may have some input on your son's suggestion for using medical marijuana for your pian.
Will you share your exact diagnosis — type of neuropathy, if known — and what type of pain you are experiencing, hertz?
I am 86 years old. I had a stroke a year ago May. Was doing great until last October when pain began. Drs. don't want to give anything for pain , just do testing and sending on to another doctor, who starts the whole procedure again. I have been placed on Neurontin, Lyrica and nothing else, which have not helped.. Have also been told to take Tylenol, which is like eating M&M's. I would like to hear from those on marijuana for same type of pain,.
Hello @hertz, I would like to add my welcome along with @lisalucier and other members. I also think it would be beneficial if you are able to share your diagnosis and what type of pain you are experiencing. The will help other members relate to your condition better and share their similar health experience and treatments. There is another discussion which you may want to read and see if it might be helpful for you.

Mayo Clinic has some consumer health information on Medical Marijuana here:
Rso Is only legal in certain states! I pray you are in one of them. Dispensaries sell it here in Nevada & California in a syringe. RSO stands for Rick Simpson Oil and tastes like licking the Street! I have also found it called FECO (full extract cannabis oil) Both are Thick dark and very sticky! (I don’t smoke or vape) I have learned to put small amounts of the rso in a capsule! Everything I have learned has been from others fighting cancer and through the cannabis community!
