“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?”
For Muscle Spasm: “Due to my many illnesses ( General Anxiety Disorder, Depression, Panic Disorder, Irritable Bowel Syndrome, Crohn's Disease, Chronic Nausea and Vomiting, Inflammatory Bowel Disease, Peptic Ulcer, and Chronic Tension Migraines. ) I am directed to take a cocktail of medications. All of these medications have taken a major toll on my body. The process of finding the right medications was even more excruciating. I was experiencing side effects from several drugs all at once. For two months I was left in indescribable discomfort. As of right now, I am prescribed Zoloft, Valium, Seroquel, Gabapentin, Hyoscyamine, Prednisone, Bentyl, Prochlorperazine, Robaxin, and if the pain is severe, then 20mg of Oxycontin. After matching with all these medications and letting them work their way through my body, I figured this was as much relief as I was going to get. Until I found Cannabis. The wonder drug. It has helped with every single one of my ailments.”
For Pain: “Used a indica dominant strain. Helps with my anxiety and anxiety attacks and relieves 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.”
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)”
“I have numerous chronic illnesses, chronic urticaria, IBS, gastroparesis, anxiety, arthritis and MHE ( multiple hereditary exostoses). The low THC high CBD oil (2%/27%) provides tremendous and quick relief from the severe itching, burning, stinging pain of chronic urticaria within about 5 mins. It also calms my anxiety, helps my arthritic joints. High THC oil rubbed on my stomach shuts down painful stomach spasms and gut aches within about 15 seconds. If I am in a lot of pain from my MHE I will vaporize some cannabis. Some strains worsen my gastroparesis but others do not. Other than that, it causes dry mouth and dry eyes. I can work with that. It is a valuable medicine that works much much quicker than pharmaceuticals with less side effects.”
“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.

For Muscle Spasm: “As a chronic asthmatic, I can safely state that nothing has come close to Marijuana in alleviating my breathing problems. When I was first diagnosed, I was put on different inhaled steroids and they all caused severe side effects (extreme weakness, low blood pressure, palpitations), even at the lowest doses. Finally, I found out that Cannabis was the cornerstone of Asthma treatment in the nineteenth century and I tried it out through a vaporizer. To my surprise, it works even better than Albuterol in opening my airways and stopping attacks. It really is amazing.”
For Pain: “CBD gummy (not smoking) have been highly effective in combo with my other arthritis meds, methotrexate, humira, etc. just started and there is improvement every day. Didn’t try to get it covered through insurance.”
“Ive had epilepsy for 20 years. I've been on every seizure med made and when this got approved in my state, Florida, I knew this was going to be my miracle drug! Sadly cannabis made my seizures worse and now having them everyday! Sometimes up to 4 times a day. The only thing this helps me with is sleep! Thats it!! On 3 seizure meds, have a VNS implant and had brain surgery, removed my right temperol lobe because thats where they were starting. Just wondered if anybody else has used this with it not helping there seizures? Happy for those it does help!!”
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”
