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?

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!

I would try different strains of marijuana. They can be different. You may also want to try Kratom, which can also be quite relaxing and help pain. I get mine from Happy Hippo, on line. You buy a slow strain, which is quite relaxing and helps pain. Some CBD drops and salve, applied directly to the feet, can help. Not all Kratom or CBD drops are equal, in any way, so buying quality products are essential. I have done extensive research, and like the products I buy. The pain of neuropathy is so hard to bare. I wish you well. I try to keep as busy as I possibly can, and when it is way too much, I will do the CBD drops or Kratom. The darn meds for Neuropathy seem to do little. Good luck. Lori Renee

@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?

Too expensive

Has anyone used medical marijuana for the relief of neuropathic pain in legs, feet AMA calves? If so what dose and blend of canaboidoil and THC did you use. Also did you have any side effects from using it.
