I can take 60 mg morphine and 8 mg dilaudid and still be in constant tears from a constant spasms from my toes to chest.. the only thing that helps is marijuana.. any type high grade works and allows me to not be suicidal because when in constant hell I just want to get away from the pain and I don’t want to end my life I just want to be out of spasticity.. I have been screaming the last 5 years and tired of it.. I want to move to California so I can grow my own without fear of my door being kicked in for growing a plant – that sounds so slave mentality to the programming the government tries to instill to control society… it is sick I can’t grow my own medicine legally here and have to suffer going to the DR every month wasting Tax payers dollars on trash Rx that is ineffective where as weed works, and no constant tears in my eyes whether lying down or ambulating with my crutch or moving around on my scooter. I had 3 jobs when I was 13, I went in the ARMY when I was 17. Life is hell today because I have had no weed in a month or two except for crumbs here and there… I would rather be dead than the river that flows from my eyes as I write… but I am strong – I do not give up. Somehow I want to get my Program written 420 Pinball and make enough money to get me a small land lot on the West Coast and tell this place sayonara so I can afford to be well. Reply Dom Anderson November 12, 2013 at 3:55 pm I have been using cannabis medicinally for many years now, I have tried it all from flowers, to edibles, oils, waxes, hashish, ect. I have broken many bones in the past, and have Also been diagnosed with ADHD, and I paticarly like sativa strong bubble hash, and hybrid flowers. Works like a charm every time! Reply Cynthia November 11, 2013 at 4:30 pm I have Burning Mouth Syndrome which causes unbearable pain, has no known case or cure and could last for the rest of my life. I ‘ve had it for over a yearand have tried absolutely everything. I recently read about Phoenix Tears and I know that it is no longer available, but healing whole-plant hemp oil is the only proven cure I have read about in my exhaustive searches. Does anyone know whether there is any place in the world where hemp oild of this quality can be obtained? It would be a miracle for me. Please let me know if you have any ideas. Thank you all. Reply Charlotte Fischnar October 10, 2017 at 6:42 pm Cynthia, I am an independent affiliate for the highest quality whole plant hemp oil available. It recently relieved the symptoms of burning mouth for several hours of one of my friends with only 1 pump of the oil. An average dose for an adult is usually 4 pumps! This is looking very promising for you. If you would like more information, you can check out my website at excelat.primemybody.com. I would also be happy to answer any questions that you may have. Either way I hope you get some relief! Reply Richard Evans November 29, 2017 at 11:00 am Charlotte, I see you answered a very old post recently. My wife also Cynthia, has burning mouth syndrome. How can I contact you to discuss this issue? Richard Reply Deziree November 10, 2013 at 7:50 pm I have severe anxiety, depression, and chronic pain. Does anyone have a suggestion for me? I don’t have a lot of money. Reply Marlando November 5, 2013 at 11:34 am To me it have to be THC not CBD. It helped so well to my migraine that one weekend I forget to smoke it, because I did not have any headache and usually I have some little, even if I have smoked. So I forget to take my medicine because I felt so fine, then I drank accidentally too much alcohol. Y Griega makes me feel so fine that I can be without medic for while because it blocks migraine so well. Effect is more like energetic and happy. If token more it makes sleepy. As a sativa it makes dense and big buds. Grows fast, don’t need vegetative stage much. One week is enough. Vaporizin is best for migraine though… How cannabis helps migraine? – Neurological pain, works as painkiller – Works as preventive, reduces/ balances activity of CB1R receptor. – Increases blood circulation in brain. – Relaeses serotonin (THC), in migraine serotonin and dopamin leves goes down. – Relaeses Dopamin. – Helps to sleep. I have to thank cannabis, I could not do anything(hobbies, dating etc.) in my personal life if this medic wouldn’t be around. Migraine is too paralyzing when it hits you. When everything else fails, there is always safe and working solution. Reply Cameron November 5, 2013 at 3:57 am Hello my name is Cameron Chipchase and I am a disabled veteran and medical cannabis patient the beginning of this year I launched HempSciences™ a new product line that creates Hemp based healing products dedicated to enlightening individuals on the amazing and mystical heeling properties of the hemp plant and with that being said for years I have been plagued with numerous health issues that I found very little relief from without serious side effects or without the addictive properties of Opiates. Until I turned to Cannabis for relief I was a mess and the only thing that was helping my pain was the highly addictive opiates that are harsh on the liver and had left me hospitalized. After going to the emergency room for a second time one of my close friends pleaded with me to get my 215 card and begin medicating with cannabis I immediately went the following week after the emergency room visit and began a cannabis medicating protocol that allowed me to tapper of the opiates without all the nasty side effects and transition into a more natural form of dealing with my pain. I have been using Cannabis as a replacement to highly addictive narcotics since 2010 and have never looked back. As a main staple in treating my disorders and disease I use a nice blueberry Indica to help deal with anxiety and light pain issues. Blue Dream if I need something to help lift my spirits. Obama Kush for it’s overall effects and benefits and Catatonic or Omerita when I can get a hold of it as it’s healing properties and medicinal befits are astounding; Both strains are CBD rich strains and are beneficial in helping deal with PTSD,Bi-Polar Disorder, Epilepsy,Schizophrenia, MS, Parkinson’s Chronic Pain and many other disorders. The US government currently holds a patient on CBD for the treatment of numerous neurological disorders. learn more about CBD at projectcbd.com Thank you for taking the time to read this commit if you did. Sincerely Cameron Chipchase United States Disabled Veteran and founder of HempSciences™ Reply Cindy January 4, 2014 at 2:26 pm I am a disabled veteran.I have Chronic severe back pain, migraines and anxiety, they keep prescribing narcotics which can rebound causing migraines 🙁 if I don’t take medicine I cry from pain, now it does not seem to help. Was at the adv pain clinic yesterday he said there is nothing more they can do, yesterday was such a hard day for me as now I am facing surgery in my L4 and L5. It is illegal to use MMJ in WI. Just so sad that something which such great medical benefits can land you in Jail. Reply Cindy January 4, 2014 at 2:28 pm *with…I support medical marijuana, hope every state legalizes it Reply Sara Medina-Meeker November 5, 2013 at 1:15 am After trying every drug out there for my multiple sclerosis; each one giving me worse side effects than my actual disease, I decided to try edibles. I am a living, breathing testimony of how this amazing plant put me in control of my disease. A hybrid edible with both sativa and indica qualities keeps me symptom free and extremely happy! Reply Cindy January 4, 2014 at 2:27 pm Awesome Reply Jennifer November 4, 2013 at 11:56 pm My story really isn’t my story it’s the story of my amazing partner of 4 years and growing stronger. My partner Erin aka Connor has been diagnosed with a back injury that one day she will end up in a wheel chair. She has several slipped discs a few rates but mostly she has 2 disc that are now basically nothing and are pushing on her spinal chord effecting her nerves and you can only imagine the pain she is in every single day. She is a very strong woman and try’s to fight the tears but sooner or later she always end up breaking down and gives in to the pain and she cannot bare it. Doctors expect us low class paying Americans, her not able to work every again fighting for sis if some kid to get medical insurance to somehow pay for back surgery in the future but by the time we get the $70 grand just for the sugary alone she will most likely be paralyzed from the waist down. I introduced weed to her back in 2011. she never was into it but once she had this back injury and gets worse everyday all I can do is get her the weed she needs. dro is the only kind that somewhat gets rid of the pain without it she cannot relax and get some sleep . She has been on every possible pain killer and non of them work for her. Weed has given my wife hope to live on and weed has given us as a couple a stronger bond because with my anxiety and depression it heals me inside an out . At 24 Connor is fighting to survive in this cold world and the natural herb she gets is te only thing saving her from giving up and letting go. I am a full supporter of this miracle plant it can and will save lives 🙂 Reply Liz Cremin November 4, 2013 at 10:23 pm Indica, GDP is a miracle plant for helping me with my pain. I have Lupus SLE, Fibromyalgia and Rheumtoid Arthritis. I am not on any meds for pain, treating my pain with weed. I only take plaquenil for my Lupus. Thanks to weed I am no longer experiencing the harmful side effects of the several medications I have been on for the past 2 years. Weed has helped me more then any medication I have ever taken for my Lupus. It’s fucking awesome and I’m so thankful for it. I can do the things I used to before I found out I was sick. It helps make life easier with a chronic condition. Reply johanna November 4, 2013 at 9:50 pm I was in and out of all the best mental institutes, diagnosed with borderline personality disorder, depression, ptsd, anxiety disorder, dissociative disorder, and a partridge in a pear tree. I was deemed profoundly ill and beyond hope. I had quit smoking cannabis because the doctors on the psych units told me that was the problem, and if I would just stop smoking all would get better. Not true, it got so much worse. Sometime in the mid 1990’s I smoked again, and never went back to a psych unit and am considered a minor miracle. Cannabis saved my life and the federal government loads of money. Ok so I am still not “normal” I live alone along the coast of maine in the woods with 4 special needs dogs, and all the rescue puppies I can foster. Might not sound fascinating or compelling to you guys, but most people who know my story are amazed, and medical cannabis plays a huge huge role in my recovery. Reply jeff c November 5, 2013 at 4:19 pm if you ever need a little help $ with the dogs let me know. Im far from rich I might be considered poor, but I would always help . God bless you Reply jimi November 5, 2013 at 4:20 pm You’re an angel! Reply dan February 16, 2014 at 11:13 pm Nice, I want a dog! Reply Zack November 4, 2013 at 8:56 pm Smile by Ugorg Seeds – These big nugs just make you want to smile looking at them! This skunky strain is the best I’ve found to help me chill and and alleviate not just my Anxiety but Depression too! Having a strain rid me completely of both is very difficult…I find Sativas the best for Depression but some Sativas can leave me feeling a little edgy due to my anxiety. This is where Smile is perfect…it’s a Indica dominant hybrid yet the grower and users alike including myself feel that is has a very Sativa like high to it but without the drawbacks like anxiety etc.. For this reason Smile by Ugorg has to be my favorite strain to smoke for medicinal purposes it’s uplifting and euphoric yet still leaves you relaxed with no anxiety… if you suffer from anxiety and depression this strain is a must!
