According to the pain clinic neuro that I have spoken to in a number of occasions, MJ is simply another "drug" like any drug. People react differently to the same medication and such is the case with patients who use MJ. Would you go out and use Neurontin or Lyrica, both strong neuro pain medications without the supervision of a doctor? Of course not and when using MJ, exactly the same situation should exist. That is why this neuro was running the open label clinical trial on MJ so he could learn first hand what the side effects were with various patients and compare them to what the conventional drugs did .
The one big concern by some was thinking they had to "smoke" the MJ to use it. Simply not so.....patients can consume the drug either in tea or mixing it with other foods. It takes longer for the drug to have its effect this way but the benefit obtained is the same.
now I'm seeing that some people think it could actually slow the progression of MS. What do you think about that?
Also, I wasn't aware that you could get the same effects from having it as tea and/or in your foods. Although slower it sounds like the better option if I'd ever need to use MJ, smoke of any kind has always made me sort of nauseous and sometimes gives me a headache.
I would check for yourself on everything I am about to type.robbie wrote:got 60mg a day for 7 days and then a slow tappering off
