Medical marijuana for neuropathy

Posted by wilcy @wilcy, Jul 24, 2019

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?

MY SON THINKS MARIJUANA IS THE ANSWER FOR MY PAIN. CAN I HAVE SOME FEEDBACK FROM ONE WHOSE THOUGHTS ARE SAME?

I have used marijuana for pain, and it helps, but made me so high, that I was probably unaware of everything, period. I inhaled very little. The stuff I used was very potent. My pain at that time was very severe, so I appreciated it. However, it is not a state I would like to be in on a regular basis. I really do not have much experience with it at all, but I can tell you, it helped the pain tremendously. I have heard that marijuana is much stronger than it used to be. I really do not know. I would say that if you are at your wits end with pain, do it. Just don't make it a regular thing, because it is not a way to live a life. Lori Renee

@hertz I have a Medical Marijuana Card & I do think it helps relieve the pain. I smoke it which I probably should not but at this age you will do anything for pain relief . It takes the edge off & gives instant relief for awhile. I'm hoping my meds work & then I won't have to do this bc it is expensive. They do have edibles too. Best of luck to you.

Have you ever tried edibles? Would they be less potent in making you HIGH?

Good afternoon @hertz. I think it is good that you have decided to do some digging into medical cannabis as an option. Perhaps your son is genuinely trying to help you. The most reliable medical cannabis products are tinctures. You can determine your dosage method and strength very well with tinctures.

If you hold it under your tongue and let it go through that membrane, you will get relief within 15 minutes that lasts 3-4 hours. If you swallow it or put it in a beverage, it has to go through your digestive system, so that may take 45 minutes and you may not get it all at once so the time frame for pain relief is somewhat unpredictable.

Please be careful, you can always have more, you can never have less. You do not need to have any psychoactive results. There need not be any high. If there was anything I would avoid it is edibles because the dosing is not reliable. It is sort of like eating the cookie dough when your mom wasn't looking…you didn't always get a chocolate chip. Let me know what other information you might need or want. If it is within my experience I will gladly share it with you. Be free of suffering today. Chris

If I go to a state where they have the medical cannabis will I be able to purchase some ?? I do not have a medical card. Can I go into just any store and get it?

Unfortunately No. If they are only Medically then you must have the card!
