Medical Marijuana

Aug 13, 2015 12:38 AM

Please tell me your story about the use of medical marijuana. My pain doctor screens for users of medical marijuana. He is not against it. He just says you can't use both. I can take less pain medication with more relief if I use THC. I am in the process of finding out what to do. As a "punishment" for using THC he decreased my pain medication. As a result I have more pain with now no THC to reduce it. Doesn't make sense to me. Comments?

Personally I hate the feeling of THC so I use oil that only has CBD. I don't use it very often because my doctor is against it, but I find it takes the edge off on really bad days. I'm very new to this, but I don't think there's any harm in taking a bit of CBD oil and pain medication at the same time. Don't quote me on that though.
