pain relief

Cannabis is a wonderful pain reliever. There are many different strains to try for pain. Pain medication (opiates) is poison. Just thought I would share.

    Thanks for the comment.

    Are you currently using MJ for pain? I'm in the military and we aren't allowed to have it prescribed, but I've heard it can work wonders.

    I'm currently prescribed Voltaren and Flexerol for regular day to day pain, then Percocet when I have a flare up. Flare ups are getting more and more common, therefore I'm using the opiate more often than I'd like. It also works less and less the more it's used, so I have to take more. I really wish we could have access to medicinal form of marijuana but I think it's a long way off.

  • Never have had true relief from cannabis. The relief I got was - it got me high which mentally distracted me from the pain, so the method was indirect at best. The side effect of getting high makes the benefits worthless for my case when opiates treat the pain directly and have a much less debilitating 'high' to the point of being near non-existant when on a continuous dose patch.
