Medical Marijuana


Recommended Posts

Hi All, I just want to ask if anyone ever tried using medical cannabis as an alternative meds? I have read many articles about medical marijuana and how it can help you in terms of eating disorder, anxiety disorders and panic attacks, inflammation, even cancer and a lot more. Cbd and thc are also new to me and I don't even smoke. If this is true I cant find any solid conclusive evidence that speaks to its efficacy. Any personal experience or testimonial would be highly appreciated. Thanks

I'm not against medical marijuana but I have a very serious anxiety problem and panic attacks, and marijuana made it worse, so I guess it depends on the person.

I respect people who consume it and I'm happy that it helps some people, just be aware that it doesn't have the same effect on everyone.

Whilst I'm not against it, it shouldn't be like "Oh yeah 5g of weed is fin.. HOLD THE FUCK ON THAT'S 6g OF WEED YOU FUCKED M9" whilst you're driving around with a couple of crates of alcohol.

 

Alcohol is more deadly than weed, but I know a couple of friends who do smoke weed, and they quite enjoy it.

So I do think medical marijuana should be legal, but marijuana which you buy of dealers should be limited to 5g of the stuff.

THC - tetrahydrocannabinol iirc is the active compound in marijuana. I am unaware of the risk profile of marijuana for medical use, however there is a body of research which is inconclusive on whether or not marijuana does or does not bring out schizophrenia in those already predisposed to schizophrenia. Given this data, physicians still advise against recreational use - because there are plenty of other ways to have fun that don't include putting yourself at risk of developing one of the most debilitating conditions known to medicine. All things are observed on a risk vs benefit scale. There is data to evidence beneficial medical use, however, as far as I know, it is not a first line drug for anything. It would be a good idea to speak to your doctor about what your specific problem is eg. Chronic pain. Most likely, they'll put you on something not weed first, and if it doesn't work or you can't tolerate its side effects, perhaps weed may be the way to go. But step 1 - consult a doctor.

My mother used to have breast cancer and he did help you when it came to relieve the stress and anxiety associated with the surgery and the rehabilitation.

It's definitely helpful if you have chronic arthritis and it's been a hell of a ride for me trying to deal with the pain. .It was a big nightmare for me when I first got diagnosed as my condition was really severe and my doctor was not very happy with my evaluation and future prospect. Nevertheless, try to make it as smooth as possible for me and that's why she recommended me cannabis products from a good source greengoddesscollective.com that he knew they have the best quality. I was able to get it in edible form as well since I'm not good with smoke in general.
