  • I know it helps certain back pains and others.
  • Certain compounds (especially THC) does have many beneficial medicinal uses, from chronic pain to relieving nausea.
  • i know the government gives it away for people with bad arthritis and glaucoma, my buddy broke his arm and has a steel rod and screws holding it straight and he has his cannabis club card.. used to trade medicinal marijuana for subway when i worked there ahaha
  • Yes many people in severe pain turn to cannabis when other medications don't work or have terrible side effects. Most medical grade cannabis strains are indica dominant.
  • no, but you don't care about the pain.
  • Yeah man.
  • i believe, not, but try anyways
  • There are much better analgesics
  • Yes, it does. "There are much better analgesics" The medical marijuana patients beg to differ :)
  • I believe it does and it DOES help people undergoing chemotherapy. It's not legal, cigarettes are. ???STRANGE???
  • For certain things, yes. THC will help naseua, and will also help a person regain their appetite, which is why a lot of people going through cancer treatments are told to doob up every once in a while.
  • For me personally, it does help to an extent. Eventually I'm going to end up having another surgery on my foot to remove bone fragments, but for now Aleve and Tylenol don't always help. Especially since I have arthritis in my ankle now, pot helps to just calm me down when I get frustrated with the pain and how it limits what I can do. Maybe, eventually, it will be legal :)
  • In many cases , yes. It can also help bring the appetite back for those who are undergoing treatment that takes away their appetite. Some people find pot reduces nausea as well.
  • Depends on the type of pain; for bones and joints the answer seems to be yes. Personally I've never gotten rid of a headache with it so I'm not sure how powerful it could be. The possibility exists that it shuts down the pain receptors all together (more like puts them to sleep), but I'm no doctor.
  • .. and most others.
  • It coats several neuroreceptor sites. Some of them transmit pain messages. It may be okay to use in SOME EXTREME CASES...not because you 'have a bad back' or whatever other 'chronic pain'. Chronic pain is usually best dealt with by activity, not passivity. Yoga is a great option for many types of chronic pain. The only thing is, it actually takes work; anything really valuable requires work to achieve-there is NO easy way, so stop looking.
  • I never noticed any particular pain relief (in fact it sometimes enhances nagging minor pain) but it is incredible at restoring appetite to chemo patients and has negligible side effects.
  • I love the name cannibus..It sounds so munchy like..I do not know but if i do not stop hurting and my nausea do not go away hows about we come up with an idea...hehehe
  • It helps me.
  • absolutely YES!! and with no side effects
  • depends how much u smoke
  • my hiusband is disabled, has been for 4 years now. hes been on were told the strongest pain meds made. he has a spinal problem, that has not been namded. i have bought him very good weed before. he said it did not take the pain away, but it did make him forget about it, which helped him alot. he said its worth it if your in sever pain. so, he still was in pain, but so high, he forgot about it someof the time. when hed remember he was smoking to get rid of the pain and focused on it again, hed soon forget. i think that weed is a good way to forget about pain, but does not help as much as i thought. its not worth the cost or risk. sarah
  • If I just take 1 hit it does,but when I take more its too strong and makes me abit dumb.The older you get the more pain it gets rid of.Most people that take it perscribed are just stoners ,Theres alot of other things you can take for pain.
  • M. it is scientific proved pot helps Sara Maybe your husband should smoke more or a stronger one
  • Seems to me that you still have the pain, but you just don't care.
  • your be so surprised, i decided to test this, i had a boxing match with my firned, we were in so much pain afterwords, we then smoked a beutiful duibe, i didnt feel shit for the next 4 hours
  • oxycontin helps more, but pot is far less unpleasant side-effects wise. i am not big on smoking pot, but i do have pretty bad arthritis in my hip from an accident (and i'm only 22) and i can definitely say that pot has a positive effect on pain. i don't agree with it being illegal, even though i smoke it rarely- less than once a year, if that.
  • I think indirectly through whatever mechanism.....definitely lets you relax, and severe pain causes you to tense up, making the pain worse, vicious circle.....so ya if only by relaxing you and not being focused on pain. Less side effects than dilaudid or fentanyl that's for sure.And not life-threatening like those drugs can become....my advice? Grow poppies and pot.God's medicine.
  • It helps, disposition and nausea for me.I'm on high doses of oral meds, it was hard for me to condsider mj. I will be sharing this with my Dr. on my next appointment.
  • It is almost night and day for me, if only for a short while. I have RA and by the end of the day on some days I can hardly move. The best treatment I have found is some weed and a hot tub for relief. It does not make it disappear completely, but it increases my mobility and relieves the lethargic vale that is persistent with RA. The biggest draw back is the short term memory loss and it is not a good avenue when your job requires piss testing.
  • There are reports that Queen Victoria used marijuana to relieve her menstrual cramps. +5
  • I read that it really does have medicinal benefits. There is no reason to not believe this since big pharma now has its synthetic thc and lobbies to keep marijuana illegal to force people to take harmful synthetic meds rather than use the natural plant. There are even claims about cancer being cured with medicine made from a very concentrated oil from the marijuana plant.
  • Yes, and many other chronic illnesses. +3
  • Ohhh yes it does and to those that say no... you are pompous, ignorant, prudes with nothing but judgement to impose, incoherent, retarded and unfounded judgement. Whom have never experienced pain, or chronic pain for that matter. Having a herniated disk with nerve damage, sciatica, lumbar scoliosis, generalized anxiety disorder, acute multiple sceloris and severe depression. Such extensive nerve damage in my spine has left me impotent!....did that catch your attention? oh yes i bet!!!!. It has been a godsend, Medical marijuana has helped me get my life back. My muscles atropied from inadequate opioid RX dosages. All because of my young age at the begining of my chronic maladity. Therefore, due to the undermedication ,by physicians, because of my young age when I first saw a doctor, male in early 20's, and thanks to the DEA's afference to persecute Dr's really helping patients reach adequate levels of analgesia. I spent 4 years searching for adequate pain relief. It finally did come and thanks to that and the cocombianant use of marijuana and opiates. Ending with just cannabis as my sole medication. I got my life back, at least what ever pieces could still be repaired. Not everyone can function with a five on the pain scale due to physiological and psychological factors; both which are specific on a per patient basis. Yes, i am a health professional also....mmm did that intrugue you even more. Marijuana has been great for its extremely effective analegisic effects, antispasmodic, anxioxylic, antiemetic, sedative-hypnotic, anti-psychotic and anti-depressive effects. All thanks to the combination of CBD and THC in pot, its effective for all the listed maladities....Its medical appication is endless i just wish more in my field felt this way....saddly its all due to social stigmas. We are still stuck in a 1960's social climate haze when it comes to medicine and prescibing adequate narcotics in situations which are proper and due call for such medication use. pardon the spelling and keep up the fight to legalize marijuana and push for its medical application. anonymous health care professional
