I have never done this before so please bear with me. Has anyone used pot for pain relief? If so does it help?
I haven't done it, but heard that it works. However, it may cause depression after the 'high'. The best thing to do would be asking a doctor and researching the effects. Sorry I couldn't be of much help.
thank you for your input, I will do that
Not a problem. My response wasn't very good though. Sorry. My dad's doctor told us about the side effects, but since it's not legal in florida, he didn't go into great detail.
--I forgot to mention earlier, that it can also cause weight gain/loss too. I was looking at a website to try and help you out, and there was a picture that reminded me about it.
Here is a website I found that might help.
If you click arthritis, it tells you how it helps with aches and pains (I thought it might help since lupus sometimes acts like artheritis). However, I'd suggest that you click on the links available on the site to see how they have/have not bennefitted the people who used medical marijuana.
(The people in this one tell you how it has worked for them. Thought it would be beneficial to you if you heard it first-hand).
(another first-hand forum)
Hope this post helped more than the last one! I'll make a list and send them to you. Just let me know if you need anything else! I'm more than willing to help.
