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?

@lorirenee1

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

Which brand of CBD drops help with neuropathy of your feet?

@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?

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

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.

hello @richardrr. You will notice that I moved your post into an existing discussion on Medical Marijuana for Neuropathy so you could benefit from reviewing the previous comments and also to allow you to better connect with members such as @artscaping and @tigreyes2004 who may be able to provide you with additional information.

Have you started to use medical marijuana or just started exploring it as an option?

Thanks Amanda, Yes I have started a few days ago. I am hoping some of the side effects settle soon.

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?

You need to get a medical doctor to set you up for a medical card. The stores may be able to refer you to a medical card doctor.
I have one and was screened by a nurse practitioner.

Medical Marijuana did not work for me for my neuropathy in my feet. I tried THC based and non THC based. My guitar playing did improve though. Seriously, everyone is different. Whatever works, use it. Good luck.

I have neuropathy for over 25 years and found the only things that helps is oxycodone. I have been on it for 6 years now and it does work. I get a months supply from my Doctor for only 28 days. I tried all the others and this is the only one that actually works. THE DOWNSIDE is you get hooked. Even with what I take I worked at a rehab facility and taught not to use them or any other opioids. My doctor said at anytime I use marijuana I will be off the opioids prescribed by him and the pain center.
I suggest anyone not to get one them unless you such severity as I have it.
I stated earlier in another comment that I have found a DR. that hopefully will preform an operation on my legs to reduce pressure or compression of nerves. After I get this procedure and it works I will surely shout it out.
