Hey Mike,

Over the years other members here have been a massive support to me and I have no problem whatsoever in passing that support on.

Pain can be nasty and head pain is simply a bitch. Some people think all pain is the same and I strongly disagree. Leg pain affects your leg and you can have a limp where head pain can affect EVERYTHING. 

As for what works best, now, that depends. It most definitely is not a 'one size fits all' sort of thing. For me it depends on the 'trigger' ie what has been the cause?

I need to sit down and analyze "What have I done to cause/exacerbate the pain?" Have I done too much? Is it tiredness? Has it been too physical? Has it been too mental? Is it bright light? Is it noise related? etc, etc

If I can identify a cause I can learn 'Ahh don't be doing that again' and then to manage it... I tend to get a bit frustrated with myself when I cannot find a cause.

 

I have a 'few canna tools' I utilize.

If I'm able to stop and do nothing and I mean absolutely nothing, I like my hash. Hash welds my arse to the lounge everytime, mellows me out bigtime and I can relax and just switch off to the world around me.

If I still need to function I can smoke a cone of some nice bud and I have a few differing smokes that I like to 'mix'n'match'. If I smoke the some strain repeatedly it tends to lose it's beneficial effect, so varying the smoke is a must for me.

If I need an increase in effect I may top a cone with a bit of oil, but again it really depends.

Often I find I may need to have a pharma and a choof to get things under control enough to function. But if I can lock myself away from the world for a couple of hours, I hit the hash HARD, then laydown for a bit.

 

But as I say it really can depend on the cause. 

BUT, 

Just like the dr's, some will make out that they have the 'key', BULLSHIT, everybody's key is different. You have to work out what is your key and what works best for you. Nobody else feels your pain in exactly the same way you do, so what works for you can be very individual. This is the same with the pharma crap, for some it can be a stress thing and a calmative can benefit, for some it can be a muscular thing so an anti inflammatory can benefit. For some it can just be pain and an opiate can work. But the problem I find with using pharmas continuously is that I need more and more to get the same benefit, where with canna by mixing it up both in strain and form a minimise the need to increase strengths.

 

Well, that's what I do, but it truly is a case of what works best for you as an individual in managing YOUR pain.

 

Hope it helps

Exercise mate. Cardio and anaerobic training.

 

Cannabis has shown to be beneficial to many.

 

Pharma crap. What a load of bullshit. Have you studied for over a decade as a specialist physician, I don't think so mate. I'm sick of hearing about these outrageous claims about how psychiatric medication is all crap. Sure it has its limitations and so do alot of doctors. But pharma this pharma that is getting old.

Not so sure merl1n "leg pain affects your leg and you can have a limp" 

 

All long term chronic pain will fuck you up, it might not hurt your head but it will fuck it up.

 

You are right tho, long term inside ya head pain is probably the worse, but spare a thought for all the poor stnuc with chronic stomach pain, or chronic neck pain 

 

unless ya walk a mile in someone else's shoes, ya can't really say how pain, especially long term will effect them

I has the PTSD..

I medicate heavily with alcohol which is a problem, weed helps but I'm not at all a heavy smoker.

Have tried CBD but don't find that helps. It's going to be a suck it and see thing.. I'm still searching for some relief.

I'm pharma free which is good for me! Was having shitty side effects

Most here know my story.
Depending on how bad the PTSD is you may need THC as well as CBD. I know cbd does nothing for my hubby, he needs high thc as well.
This time of year for a fast grow try autos.

If ya not a heavy smoker, try some oil, piss easy to make, chuck it in a cup of tea or coffee, milk makes it dissolve

 

use the right strain, and you will be running around happy as a teenager after their first root

Hey Pug,,,,

Perhaps try rendering down 1oz of decarboxilated bud with 2 cups of coconut oil and 2 tablespoons of lecithin . 2 hours at 70 c is enough. Strain off and put into capsules. 0 size works well. You can reduce potency by cutting the mix in half or quarter so you have control of dosing. It takes an hour or two to take effect but it works wonders without the smoke. Which bud you use will be up to you. Perhaps Sativa dominant would be more suitable for your condition? (not totally sure about this though) One thing for sure though is you gotta get off the piss train. It will fuck you up long term IMO.

I smoke plenty but maybe half what the puggle wife smokes.. maybe she's a mull pig lol

Have been playing with a pure CBD I grew out and while it's useful I think I need a 1:1 ratio
