Does it actually make you stoned or a different feeling ? Good for you going natural way! So much better than that poision they tried pushing on me!

I have to say that starting this month they have opened 2 dispensaries on Long Island (which the towns they are in are complaining about already) and medical marijuana is legal here. However, my pain management clinic has not gotten certified to give the cards and prescribe it and aren't going to any time soon. Before the original pain management doc retired from the practice, he told me that if they made it legal, he would have no problem prescribing it but now there are new doctors and that's out the window. So, not only do I not know if it will even help me, I don't even get to try!! I'm happy for anyone who can cut down on their opioids and other narcotics to use marijuana. It's natural and not produced in a lab. I'd sure love to be able to go in that direction provided it helped. Oh well, maybe in time.. Sigh😔

Alwayz you don't have to us a your chronic pain doc to perscribe it
You can go to a doctor that works with mmj and havethem do it
You can even do an online video appointment to get your card. And your chronic pain doc c ant anything bedside you are prescribed it by a doctor thatbelievea it will help you
And michell. If you smoke it You can get a high feeling (which sometimes is helpful depending on the day) but it all depends on the strain you have. If you get a strain that has low tch, but has high cbd (the active part of the cannabinoid that helps with pain) you won't neaicarilly be high, you might be come more focused even, once again though depending on the strain. Also sorry fort horrible typing I just can't seem to type today.

Jenna, unfortunately I have had to sign a contract with my pain management doctor that I will not take ANY prescriptions for pain meds from ANY other doctor beside them. (The only thing that negates it is if I was admitted to the hospital and they had to give me my medication and that would be ok). If I broke a bone and went to the hospital or if I went to the dentist and had oral surgery, I could not take any prescriptions from the other doctors for the pain. Also, they do urine tests every month at my pain management office and if it came up with marijuana, I would be dismissed from the practice and then I wouldn't get any meds to help me with my pain. The levels of pain I'm having are consistently at about an 8 so I don't want to lose what little that helps me so I wouldn't even take the chance.

Thats ridiculous i think I know no body wants to lose their pain doc but doctors should start realizing that mmj is a wonderful medicine especially for pain. One thing you could try is just some cbd oil
It is not a drug and doesn't even need a prescription to buy or use and it does not have any thc I'm it so it can not even be considered mmj. You can buy oil to vape, cbd gum, tinctures. And it is the main part of mmj that helps most with pain. And it doesn't cause any high because like I said no thc. Its wonderful lol
I know a lot about all this stuff. I'm really passionate about mmj and all that comes with it
So if you want to know anything about she I couldd help.
I'm.sorry about going on a rant about it But i just love talking about it haha

Jenna, that's certainly not a rant!! That's really good information to know. If the cbd oil comes from the marijuana plant then won't I come up "dirty" on my urine test? I'd be willing to try it if I knew I wouldn't have a problem. I actually vape just regular e-juice because I like the taste and it's relaxing and I don't smoke. I know that the oil is readily available because you can get it online everywhere. I'm glad you know about it because if I am ever allowed to use the medical marijuana then you can help me with the strains that work best for different things. I haven't smoked since I was in my 20's and I'm 50 now so I don't want to be high, I just want the pain to go down to a manageable level (which I know you know all about!!). I appreciate your input Sweetie and can't tell you how happy I am to be talking with you and that you'll be going home!!! I posted something to you in your thread where you said you're really excited. Hope you're having a good day, Hon. Lots of love and gentle {{{Hugs}}} from me to you.💕🙏🏻🌻

If you ever want to text me or anything i can tell you more about it And what not. I love talking about it And i love learning and.teaching others about it! I actually have nearly memorized the whole cannabinoid system and how it works to control pain, anxiety and all the other ailments that it helps lol
And it some ever come up as dirty because there is now marijuana in it. And it definitely won't get. You high. The only thing you might notice is that you mind is kind of clear. Not in a bad way in a more relaxing way and its the calming part of cbd that does it.
