I wanted to share my experience with treating chronic pain. I have to say that most strains provide pain relief but some are markedly superior. It's sort of hit and miss here.
Here's my formula: I take two shots of Maker's Mark or a good tequila then I follow with ten hits of whatever I have at hand like right now it's Dutch Treat. I may need another shot, it all depends, I think, on your tolerance. Often times I'll need to smoke more. Something like a half-joint (about 1/4 gram).
Anyway the first attempt shown above is about equivalent to four 5mg Percocet. In fact, I got rid of the Percs in favor of pot. The biggest hurdle is trying to get up and move after smoking so much pot. I have a back injury so I need to move. It's sad that the a-holes in congress never allowed research on pot for going on over 70 years now. Imagine the product they may have come up with where it's not sedating!! I really do not wish to be stoned all day in order to be pain free. But that's what we have now to work with.
But I am grateful that, at least, we have something that doesn't make you want to puke, is non-addicting, and provides superior pain relief.
And I want to thank the honest and loving people at Medicine Man for simply being here. I would be fu..ed if they were not around.
Anyway, if you all have anything to add please let me know. I now realize why there is such a kick back from Big Pharma. Cannabis is far superior. All we need now is a strain that doesn't smash you in to a couch potato but provides good reliable pain management.
Of note: the pain management doctors in this area are Nazis and they would kick you out if you told them you were using cannabis. One idiot here actually tests random urines!!! I personally shut his arrogant ass down with my superior knowledge of pharmacology. (I taught pharm for ten years). Then I went and found a better pain guy but still they have no solution. They now like to use Pregabalin and Cymbalta both neurotoxic poisons pushed by Pharma using fake science studies. What a joke. I hope pot is legalized nationally so we do not have to deal with this crap they prescribe.
