Does Medical marijuana work for chronic pain. Looking for alternatives to Vicodin.
Thank you very much for your response I have taken it upon myself to do a little self research and tried a little 1:1 tincture and some vaped flower yesterday and I am happy to report I only took 1 pain pill vs 4 I am hope to whittle down to none. I had my 4 month check everything under the hood last week and passed everything! All is well i will keep you posted of Tachro response but still looking forward to any and all input

Delta 8 , a cbd product is supposed to help with pain and to relax. Maybe thats something?
I smoke everyday & marijuana has helped relax me & helped with my chronic pain. Good luck
I use med marijuana to sleep.
A very positive side affect——i was heading towards glaucoma but now my numbers are cut in half!
I also sleep like a baby!
I am reading a lot about CBD oil … what does it taste like? I can’t stand the smell of marijuana so if the CBD oil has the same taste/smell I know I will gag on it!
I use CBD oil or capsules of oil. The capsules you don’t taste at all. The oil I buy is chocolate mint flavored I put it under my tongue it’s not bad. Plain is harder, but you just have to try it.
I use 25 mg once or twice a day. It helps if I get headaches in the middle of the night which I often do and I have no meds left to take that day and have an empty stomach. Usually let’s me get back to sleep for a while.
I buy mine from Charlottes Web online. It’s cheaper (not really cheap, but relatively speaking) there than buying it at a health food store and it’s very pure good quality CBD. When you buy online they send you specials to get 20-30% off, so I buy a few then.
