Severe Pain: Marijuana Versus OxyContin

Feb 22, 2013 | Posted by: roboblogger | Full story: Salem-News.com

For the lucky pain victim in the 18 states with legal medical marijuana, it is much better and much safer than OxyContin which has killed thousands of pain patients in the past few years while marijuana has never killed anybody in the past 5000 years.

Medicinal marijuana is a much better simply because of several reasons such as; no witbdrawal symptoms ; its cheaper ; less dangerous ; NON-addictive and puts you in a better state of mind than what an oxycontin or oxycodone would. There is also many great strains and varieties to choose from with marijuana, whkch keeps ljfe interesting.

Wish it was legal(medically) in south carolina, I've been prescribed oxycodone for the past couple years.....and being that I have a pain specialist, and marijuana is illegal here, I definitely cannot have that show up in my system....I used to smoke in high school, for years, but haven't for about 5...
But with everything I have going on liver/GI/sarcoidosis, my weight is constantly fluctuating....I'm a 27yr old male and my average weight is 160lbs, but right now I'm down to 136lbs simply because no appetite...been on megastrol ES, marinol(synthetic THC) etc...with no major improvements....all of my friends tell me I need to start smoking again but just don't have the urge to anymore....might be different if I had a doctor telling me to though us know!?

If you want to smoke cannabis while under a pain specialist......Urinate in a large container and freeze it. When u know you are going to the doctor for refill/urine test take a small amount that is at room temp. Give them the small amount, it will always come out with the proper drugs.

Works for me all the time. Been doing this for over a year now. It helps me cut down on the narcotics. Give me appetite too.

Mary Jane has never helped me with my pain, not once. In fact, it seems to make me concentrate on the pain more when I'm baked. It's why I don't smoke much anymore. The reason I don't like this article is because the writer uses scare tactics to promote the pro-weed agenda. Yes, opiates can be lethal if abused. However, they can give a chronic pain patient like myself their life back if used responsibly. This article is the opiate version of Reefer Madness.
I'm definitely pro-grass myself and I believe that it should be legal. If it helps others with their pain that's fantastic. I just hate when people bastardize one thing to promote another. Sorry 'bout the novella! ;)

First to the person in South - there they have no future in medical usage of marijuana....by far one of strictest.

I'm in pm for about 6 years here in south FL.... And I get top shelf Bud all the time....it's all I smoke.
And as far as it helping too relive pain it's not all that good.....maybe if you've never once used any opiate.
But.... It very Very much helps with the problems that come along side long term opioid usage. My Dr would prescribe it if only it was legal for him to do so.
He has no issues if it's my ua tests.... My first visit I'd told him about my usage of it for the stomach and sleep....which he took as a patient being upfront and honest with him..

He said as long as there is never other drugs or alcohol then I'm ok ....
Some doctors even if there hands are tied up by laws governing the way they treat their patients , some like mine fully understand the medical value of Bud....

I use a vaporizer.... No harsh smoke on the lungs also

I have used it for pain for the past 20+ years. I am just one man and it's my opinion that it helps me way more when used along with the opiates than opiates alone. I keep an appetite and I also seem to be able to go longer in between having to take medication. I don't advocate instead of, but in use with opiates. It has made life more enjoyable and easier to live. I have stopped for the moment but know that this helpful god given medicine will once again be apart of my individual therapy.
Just my experience!

Debaine, I am interested in the vapor, Have you always used it and do you get the same results as when you use a pipe or in let's say a blunt? What about the smell as far as the smell in the house,etc. Does using the vapor help with the larger than life smell of da ganja that I like to smoke, anyway.=/
Curious!

Every now and then you surprise me Bain...that was a very good post. I think alot of pain doctors would prescribe it for their patients if they could and so long as their patients were be upfront and open with them. That's really the best and only way to go in order to control your pain.

I don't know why you have an issue with me, I have posted at you a few times and you seem to ignore me. I guess I'll be the good guy and say whatever it is , my bad! I won't post at you again. Take care
**********

Anybody else out there that has tried the vaporizing part of the newest strain of medical marijuana will you please let me know about the effects. Is it any better than the pipe or bong effect? What about the strong smell that it leaves in your area or home? I'd appreciate any impute you have. I tried it before but can't say that I liked the effects as well. I can't say about the aroma because at that time I didn't care.
Thank you very much!

Cannabis contains 300 plus chemical compounds, but when combusted hundreds more are created. The high from the vaporizer is not be the same high you get from "real" smoke.

Better or not as well as regular? I am at a point that I am having to choose between more meds or go back to smoking. If this is who I think it is, email me at the first email. I need to ask you about this more privately.
Thank You.

Does weed help with pain? Depends on the type of pain. There are different meds for different things. Nerve pain is different than injury pain. It is also treated with different meds. I have found marijuana does not help at all with electrical or nerve pain. I have had three major back surgeries because my major back nerves were crushed. Four days after my last surgery, I was taking large amounts of oxy. The pain was still so so much, I could not stand it. I tried smoking a few puffs of medical grade. It was AMAZING. It seemed like the med opened the channels for the oxy to work better. My back was numb! From near crying to numbness in a matter of minutes. It has saved my life. Unfortunately, docs will not prescribe oxy with weed. Half of my body is in pain, seems like the FDA would have some compassion.

I agree with you. Opiates are much more effective for most pain. Certain kinds of pain respond to cannabis but not many. If you have a doctor that's a self righteous a-hole get some opium poppy seeds and grow them and save the heads to make tea with. Best pain reliever anywhere!

I have grown poppies two years runnin'. It could be one of the hardest flowers to care for. As for my doc, I have the best pain management doc a guy could ask for. We have a great relationship and poppy tea is of no use to me. I'm not in it for the high.

I have ordered prescription drugs from ZTOPIX dot COM about two years ago, and was pleased with the speed and quality of service.
I'm thinking of doing the same thing with my medication. The meds is expensive, but there is a generic version available overseas.
I love the idea of taking responsibility for my own health (or lack of health) and skipping the bureaucracy... to say nothing of having to drive to the doctor, wait in line, yet again, to get a prescription refilled.
