Medical Marijuana for pain?

  • By Dragutin

    I have read many articles suggesting highly concentrated cannabis oil can be effective and alternative meds for people suffering with chronic pain. Pain and inflammation are two commonly recognized therapeutic properties of cannabis, so its ability to treat lupus effectively is not surprising. Like this review on a g13 haze strain from http://www.ilovegrowingmarijuana.com/g13-haze/. This plant has very high CBD and pain suppresing effect. Let me also hear your thoughts or personal experience when it come with medical marijuana. Thanks

    Dragutin,
    Thanks for posting! (We apologize for the delay in getting back to you too) While we cannot offer medical and treatment advice via the internet (for your safety) I hope others do chime in about their own personal experience with this treatment option for pain and inflammation.
    Additionally, here are two articles I thought would be helpful:

    The High cbd oils in cream form are really great for flare ups. I use it a lot on my hands and wrists for morning pain. As far as ingest able or smoke it helps me reduce the amount of pain pills I need. It also helps with sleep. But best to be in a state that is legal and/or medical card so you can see a specialist regarding doses.

    I agree with discgman. I was approved for medical marijuana a couple of weeks ago, however, while at the Dr’s office he had me try the CBD topical on my hand – WOW. Within about 5 minutes the pain stopped. I bought a bottle of CBD oil which I use when needed and that seems to work well. Has no side effects and I can take when needed.

    Hope this info helps.
