Reviews for Cannabis
For : "Used a indica dominant strain. Helps with my anxiety and anxiety attack and relieve my nerve pain in the back from disc herniation. Compared to Tramadol the side effects are very little. Only dizziness, a bit forgetful and hungry! Otherwise it helps a lot. You can't get addicted to Cannabis as well or need to adjust the dose. (Y)"

For Nausea/Vomiting, Chemotherapy Induced: "I had stage III colon cancer with a long chemotherapy treatment. At one point my white blood cells were border line for continuing treatment; at that point, I had had enough. I decided I would try marijuana. I discussed this with my oncologist and he was supportive. I distinctly remember using marijuana the first time after a chemotherapy session. After a few short minutes, I felt better than I had in a very long time. I came downstairs asking what was for dinner, which really surprised my wife! That was far different than any other time after a chemo treatment session. My oncologist noted I was gaining weight, and at the end of my treatment, he commented I had actually gained weight during my time in Chemotherapy."

For Muscle Spasm: "Got a medical marijuana card perscribed to me last year (was 18) now 19 and its been all great so far. Took ADHD meds and Anti Anxiety meds that changed my mood and made me develope very fast and caused me to have severe mood swings. My parents have been great I told them I wanted to try medical marijuana, they took my to my local doctor to assign me one. The last year has been wonderful, haven't taken a single ADHD pill in the entire year and have not had to take a single pain pill (I have scoliosis)"

For Muscle Spasm: "I have used Medical Cannabis in many forms since I was prescribed Oxys. I had a severe spine injury and traumatic brain injury from a car accident, I had little to no physical therapy for the first 5 years. I was using the "Oxys" for 6 months, and by month 4 I had had enough of the gut pains and sickness/drowsiness. Now I take my cannabis in an inhalant or edible or topical form. Overall, a liniment is the absolute quickest way to stop a spasm in its tracks. For the persistent or over-reactive spasms, I use a salve/lotion transdermally, and I drink a tincture tea. I then follow my current physical therapist's instructions by laying on the floor to reset the spinal alignment. For a sleepless night, nothing works better than a suppository"

For : "There are enormous benefits for this drug. If you are a chronic pain sufferer - why should you suffer when there is a natural alternative. My research has led me to the conclusion that when used properly, the benefits outweigh the risks. People drink alcohol everyday to ease their so called pains. Really - what is the difference?"
