Cannabis (for nerve damage disease)



Gasp! What a scandal! Hold your horses. It’s not what you think. It’s not like I smoke joints or bake brownies. I have a prescription for medicinal marijuana that I …

  1. Thank you for sharing this information. We vote in my state very soon on the ability to use medical marijuana. I have MS, Gastroparesis and Type 2 diabetes and I would like to be able to use the medical marijuana to help with the pain I have from MS and Gastroparesis. We are a very conservative state and I believe it will fail but at least it is being discussed.

  2. I totally agree with you Gabrielle! I too am a Conservative Christian and I don't think there's anything wrong with it. It's natural. You never hear of someone being high on pot going on a rampage hurting someone else. As far as recreational use, I don't care if other people use it, but for me it's just not my thing. But for medical absolutely!

  3. I tried CBD oil for my nausea from the gastroparesis, but it didn't seem to help, and, whether a coincidence or not, the whole week that I was using it, I remained constipated. I tried to examine the foods I was eating, but there was not anything that I was eating that normally causes my constipation (i.e.no cheese, no bananas, no pizza, etc.). I might have been drinking less fluids, but I can't really be sure of that since I don't normally measure how much I drink in a day.

    I also took Marinol, which is the man-made version of THC in pill form. At the initial lowest dose of 2.5mg, nothing happened at all, so I tried 2 pills (for 5 mg) and I noticed that I was having unusually bad headaches, but not quite migraines, but still no help on the nausea. I titrated up one more time to 3 pills (7.5 mg), and I had two migraines and no relief of nausea, so I gave up on it. I'd rather have the nausea than migraines.

    I am that strange person who has the opposite side effect with drugs, though, so I wouldn't dare say that this is typical. For example, I also tried Dramamine since my prescription Transderm Scope patches do a good job of controlling my nausea two days out of 3. Unfortunately, Dramamine is normally known for causing drowsiness, but in me it actually caused insomnia, so another failure. I'm having surgery day after tomorrow and praying that if the surgery does nothing else to help me, that it will at least diminish my nausea.

  4. I am a very conservative Christian, and I have no problem with people using cannabis medicinally. I have Gastroparesis as well, and if I needed it to ease symptoms, I would have no problem with it, but I have found relief in other ways. I don't even like to take prescription drugs if I can help it! I am glad that it helps you!

  5. The effects of the vaporizer on my nerve pain is almost immediate, unlike tinctures or edibles, although it doesn't last as long. I use both. Good for you by coming out of the closet about your use and benefits that you have experienced.
