A long awaited update?

Haven't been around much, been very very busy closing down a business and trying to straighten life around here out.

The Cannabutter cookies were all right. The doseage varied too much to be useful for medical use though. Nice, long lasting high with good pain relief once I got enough though.

Went and saw my pain management specialist today. Discussed MJ use for cronic pain. She was more than understanding and encouraged me to be careful not to get caught. Duh.

I've been using mainly leaf based joints as I can get as much as I could ever use for nothing and the joint form makes it quite easy to transport (and hide if needed) so that I can use it wherever I might need it.

I got taken off Tramal today for a minimum of a month and most probably two. The idea is to get it completely out of my system so that it'll be effecttive for me again. I'm quite happy about the idea but also a bit concerned about the fact that they've put me on 10mg of Oxycontin twice a day.

Interesting times ahead for sure.

It's true what Tom says- the CBDs (Cannabidiols) work more as a depressant towards the CNS, whereas the delta 9- THC respectively the delta-8-trans-tetrahydrocannabinol would definetely achieve the desired effects. Especially you Aussies can 'afford' growing sativas (in the sense of temperatures).

It sounds really interessting and reinforces the claims of some medics such as Dr. Franjo Grotenhermen ( President of the IACM (International Working Community for Cannabis as Medicine)), who suggsts that around 40-50 % of all medicine can be substituted by cannabis derivates.

Hope your good results keep up- respect to your courage. Again one can see how innocent people are forced to suffer because they are not given the right medical treatment, and are criminalized if they do so. What a shame.

Greetings

Wow, how bloody interesting is this!? I have a lot of similarities with you Herbie. I joined here a few years ago while living in Adelaide (hence the nick) as was having the occasional rec. smoke and wanted to know more. In '02 I got Lymphoma and the chemo beat the shite outta me. The worst problem was peripheral neuropathy - basically excruciatingly burning pain in my feet, mainly the soles. Very early on I tried buds as a possible pain relief, but most of the time it actually made it worse, For me smoking usually exaggerated or heightened my normal feelings/emotions/experiences, this was good pre-cancer, but not so good after.

I'm still on bulk synthetics. Started with Tramal, Neurontin, etc, etc, (it would probably be easier to list the things I hadn't tried!). For a couple of years I was on Oxy, eventually reaching 80mg twice a day, then three times. as well as aspirin, several other things, and Valium or Mersyndol Forte for really bad attacks. Late last year I was put on Capanol and Mexitil, as well as Effexor and a couple of others. Obviously my body doesn't like the things, especially my teeth and Kidneys, and I know the 'rush to the dunny' feeling all too well! I get dizziness, Ataxia (walking like I'm pissed!), and weird 'shifting', 'electric shock' things in my head. Like you I'm a graphic designer and artist, but I'm lucky enough to be able to continue the design, and can paint when things aren't particularly bad. The opiates never actually kill the pain, just back it off enough to function. I am however having a bit of luck with a herbal thing (drops) which is based on the mineral Zeolite.

I never found out a whole lot about the benefits of buds, as I simply stopped after finding that it made the pain worse and havent smoked for near five years. I knew it was good for 'aching' type pain like lower back pain, sore joints etc. but assumed it just doesn't work for sharp 'burning' pain.

How do you describe your pain? (mine is very much like walking on burning sand but you never get to the water, or really bad chinese burn pain). Do different types of buds work for different conditions? (I'm getting the impression from reading this that it may well do) I've only ever been able to get standard 'generic' buds, mostly hydro, and mostly fairly ordinary. I only have 'friends of friends' for supply, so couldn't ask questions. I can't do an indoor setup, (no room), and don't have time to become a horticulturist like some of the dedicated folk here, although I do back onto fairly dense forest...how are SE Qld. conditions for outdoor growth? I have a million other questions, but mainly I just have renewed hope that perhaps the gear might help after all...

Sorry for waffling...thanks for reading. I wish you the best Herbie!

since the question is so old aug. 7, 2007...but valid...here goes yes there are sativas and indicas....sativas give the heady euphoric high(forget pain) while indicas give a very sedetive and numb like body buzz (lessen pain)...fortunately most hydro growers use mixed breed lines so the buds have both qualities, good for users who have multiple symptoms and or disorders, but pure breeds can be nice to start with if you know your specific pain areas and then add new genetics to tweek the qualities and environment in which the breeds grow...sativas yield less generally indoors because the space and light requirements are often more than your general grower has or can handle...while a pure indica can be a monsterous yielder but because of economic catastrophy that molds can cause to a super heavy yielder, many indoor grower will pull a little early and have bountiful mold-free mediocre bud....so the mixed breed is the answer and the ones that lead with sativa/indica but flower 9-10 weeks are usually good medicinal strains...this is not always true but mostly....so now run to your guy and request he/she get these for you right?.......uh no. But if you stick around and go through some seedbank's listings and look for similarities in those "hydro" strains you get, raise the capital and ask for a clone. plenty of help i've seen here you wouldn't have to waste as much time with mistakes others have made and you only need 5' wide x 5' long x 6' tall space to grow your own and there a lots of options for lights. Oh and sativas have high quantities of THC (delta-8 and delta-9 THC) which helps the brain to filter out those signals from pain sources and it has strong "cloudy" head buzz qualities with lots of laughing and occasionaly some paranoia. Indica's will have middle range THC higher ranges of CBD's (this effect THC in many ways) generally producing a strong body buzz which lessens those chronic pains in the bones and muscles often triggering the desire to be involved in activity....comparatively tylenol and advil have these same cause/effect relationships with symptoms that are similiar to those above descriptions. Ultimately though combinations of those meds work better than one alone and the same goes for buds. Couchlock :huh: is no good for someone who has many tasks to perform nor is the dah lol of AK but a white family line might be the ideal medicine strain....now many flavors of this breed that are great and i'm sure a "friend" can get their hands one of them for ya good luck and pick up some books at your local bookstore about what Mj is and how it effects different people...eating foods with the essential oils in them may be whats best for you rather than inhaling it at all...then u want a ahsh plant variety but you'll need more books...:whistle:
good luck from dslgrl

Gee , and I thought I had problems with pain . Just goes to show that there's probably someone worse off than you most of the time. However , that doesnt help me with my pain, chronic back and nerve damage in both legs. It seems the doctors only want to increase the dosage of my meds. I am here now to try find out about Mj and if it would help me. Of course there would be a problem of where to grow it etc but that's why I'm here.

Glad to hear they're working. I don't approve of doctors adding more and more drugs, experimenting with pure chemicals until they somehow by chance get a good dosage of chemical pebbles for you to choke down.

Waix herbie, This is the sort of horror story anyone could face and all because we live in Australia and cannabis is against our law. Politicians listen please to the cries of these people as you never know when it might just be your turn or one of your families turn to need cannabis. Forcing sick people to break the law to find pain relief means the law is wrong and has to be changed.

I know medical marijuana is the best medicine and am also patient and i have also using medical marijuana. I have read one blog and its was really informative blog about medical use of marijuana and i have read "Delta-9-tetracannabinol is a combination of cannabinoids, which connects the cannabinoid CB1 receptors in the individual brain. These cannabinoids imitate the natural endocannabinoids password created in the brain, except by effects more efficiently.

Anti-Emetics Use of Marijuana

Since the beginning of THC was found to be successful in some patients with sickness from tumor chemotherapy. However, narrow connecting the antiemetic quantity and that causing unwanted supernatural things hinders the use of THC. During several experiments, harmful special effects happened in 70 percent of patients. During the few experiments with use of weed smoked, 29% of patients discontinued the experiment, as 31% of respondents no relief of symptoms of nausea. The beginning of serotonin 5-HT3 receptor opponents as original and more commanding anti-emetic drugs that without charge of redundant supernatural belongings have complete cannabinoid utilize fewer striking. In support of this explanation, doctors prescribe marijuana and THC is almost never as an anti-emetic for applied by chemotherapy patients. "

Some very interesting information in here, and it's good to read first hand accounts of people gaining real medicinal benefit from the plant. At the same time saddening that still, due to laws based on complete ignorance people who truely needed are persecuted on a daily basis.

I personally don't have any medical condition for which I use it for, though am a carer for a family member (mother) who uses it for multiple conditions.

In particular though I thought it relevant as someone above said they tried using it for peripheral neuropathy (burning/freezing/odd/very painful sensation in feet), however it seemed to make it worse. Interestingly when my mother uses it one of the first things she notices when she starts to get high is that her feet actually go quite numb, and in turn the sensation is much more bearable. If nothing else she finds the extremely pleasant effects from the herb completely distract her from any negative feelings or pain from any mecial conditions. However I know she was fairly lucky to have it work so well in her situation, unfortunately this isn't always the case.

Interesing though how it can have such drastically different effects on the exact same condition in different people (as most drugs can)...
