Just found this thread… Set to "watching"
Cancer, Hep C, multiple spinal fusions (L4-S1)
Was on narcotics over 15 years…
Decided to use only MJ for relief… Best thing I ever did…
Due to assine Fed. Govt I have to live in an ANTI-MJ State…
I don’t like buying from Street, no control over quality, chemicals or anything, so I decided to dust off my growing hat and jump back into MJ.
So glad I found this forum… :heart:
Glad your off the pills… MJ is the Cure…
Happy Growing… :dash::dash::deciduous_tree::upside_down_face:

2 years since I quit cold on opiates and went through the horror of withdrawal then decided to pursue the CBD route. I too want to thank ILGM for their genetics and dependability of delivery. I have degen disc disease and severe pain in the tissue connecting to my spine. The medical cannabis helps me be able to function much better.

i ran across your post, i have the same issues. disc disease plates and screws L5 S1. i was on opiods for 9 years prescribed foolish amounts had to go to rehab for 30 days. I was lucky that i never bought street drugs. I can see why so many people fall prey to H (cheap). It took me a year to feel normal off the drugs but still had pain. Last year I decided to try growing. I dont know what it is about it but i feel much better mentally. I still have the pain but the pot is able to relax me. i dont think about the pain, at least not as much and i can live a normal life. Im in MA so its legal unfortunately my wife is not accepting of it and we are separated. I guess its only people who have gone thru the hell of opoids understand how horrible those drugs can be. I feel sad that people who don’t smoke dont understand pot. I totally feel that pot has helped me and i wish you continued success. Good luck my friend!!!

I ditched 5 years of oxy between 5 and 120 mg a day (depending on pain level). Not your normal pain, neuropathy, had 6 surgeries to burn out nerves but that only bought 6 months of relief. Enter MMJ. I smoked a bit as a kid and did a few things, but my attitude toward weed was it was an escape from the chemo and shit. 5 years of oxy and finding out that a plant does a better job, at killing pain and I don’t have to look like an adict at the pharmacy. Now I’m unpacking my feelings about this drug a little here. Now that I use it I understand my feelings toward it were because of the actions of those I knew that used. I hated the things they did after smoking, but then again they did some pretty evil shit when they weren’t smoking either.

I won’t share more right now being new and all, but thank you to all that have shared some of their story. I’m a convert, and I think I’m getting better.
No joke helped me kick the cigarette habit too. They seemed to loose value after I realized I could spark an owl. Speaking of which… :slight_smile:

Great job sonicios. I totally get the pharmacy comment. I was on so much of that shit i had to go to docs every two weeks and i would have to call the pharmacy to to have them order because they didnt stock enough. i think about it now and cant believe how stupid that was. My dealer just had a fancy degree and wore a lab coat. sooo wrong… Being in construction on large projects opioids are everywhere. i tell everyone who is using opioids or is getting prescribed not use them for more than a few weeks. I am a big promoter of weed. Dont really know the long term effects of using it are but it far out weights being addicted to opoids thats a fact in my book. What i really love about weed for me anyway, if i miss a dose I’m not going thru withdrawals. I grow it, I enjoy growing it, It helps me, and it pretty affordable. I still can not believe how bad withdrawals are to go thru that horror is what keeps me from going back.There is light at the end of the tunnel!!!

I just made some sour diesel “nugget run” bubble hash! The 25 micron patty leaves me in need of glue remover and a spatula to get my eye lids back up!
