    Smoking pot, the getting high kind, did take the edge off my pain after my pelvic fracture, for sure. But the pain did break through, and then it was nice to have a couple of opiates around. Nothing completely killed the pain. I haven't tried CBD oil but would like to now that I've been dxed with low-back degenerative scoliosis. I have tried the cannabis infused creme that a friend makes and it helped some but not really any better than aspercream, icy hot, or other commercial products. Maybe it just wasn't strong enough. So I guess I might have to go back to pot for strong pain, and it's legal in my state, but I don't want to be stoned all the time!

    I think that Ohio is going to make it very hard for anyone to even have a choice to smoke pot or not smoke pot. They have gone back and forth with how it is all going to work here. I do agree that pot has it's benefits over opiates. I have done both and I really hate the pain pills. Someone brought me some CBD oil to try and I couldn't really tell whether it did anything for my pain. I do know that when I have smoked pot, I can do a whole lot more, without pain. It seems to give me more energy and focus. I really think that it all depends on the individual and the strain of the pot.
    Anne, I am glad that you got some benefits from it and maybe, your friend can advise you on some edibles. I have had some brownies that were very powerful and good for pain, sometimes you have that watch the intake.
    I wish anybody that tries it, all the best. It is like anything else, use in moderation.

    With my lungs I can't smoke it anymore ( wish I could..it did help like Jaha said ) I agree with you Jaha it is going to be very hard to get it legally, guess we will have to move.

    I have ingested it before for fun but lately, the few times I've done it, if I ingest only a small amount, I have gotten mild vertigo, while if I ingest a larger amount, I don't get vertigo but may get higher than I want to. Smoking it has never given me vertigo. Weird. I'd like to try ingesting the CBD oil, which won't get me high or impact my lungs.

    Maybe you could use a vaporizer? It turns it to steam with no combustion. Much easier on the lungs. I have a small vape 'pen' for this purpose. I usually smoke straight cbd flower but you can also smoke pot with thc this way. If you're a former smoker like me, it's not quite as satisfying because there's no smoke. But I believe it's much safer for your lungs. You'd need to run it by your docs to be sure. The dispensary employees can be very knowledgeable as well.

    Hi guys. My docs have me using several types of cbd and cannabis items. My docs have been using my info for other patients. I am Extremely well versed in the medical uses and recreational uses of all items made from the plant. Plus my doctor had me take classes do the research and pass courses. Now I am now considered a dosing specialist for CBD and cannabis products for medical and recreational usage. What exactly do you need to know Hun? I tried reading the thread but got lost..

    Hi @alexciasmom. I too got lost trying to find the original poster and what they asked. I was just relaying my experience at the time. This has changed since then. For a year and a half, I've been using a vape pen with two cartridges of CBD/THC, which were gifted to me. Yes, I made it last that long! My pain is not as great as yours or some others in the group. I have NOT been inhaling it into my lungs, because it makes me cough violently. I just keep it in my mouth, puff out my cheeks, and let it into my nasal cavity, which is large due to Wegs erosion of sinuses. I let it linger there and I get the high and the pain relief. I don't have to worry about damage to my lungs, especially with all the talk these days about the dangers of vaping. I'm not too worried and know a lot of people do it with no problem. Now I'm about out of oil and haven't tried to get more, not feeling I really need it like I did when I had shingles. So don't know what to expect at a dispensary, if it is limited, much more expensive, or what. So not really asking a question, just ruminating. You are to be commended for taking classes, having a wealth of knowledge, etc. More power to you, and I admire your doc for encouraging this.

    Just a fyi. For pain, and many other reasons Edibles are the way to go. Especially for those with lung problems. 🧡🎃💛

    In regards to the vaping causing lung illnesses. The people who did the research to find the root cause have found it's in the additives used to make the concentrate less viscous so it may be vaped, a certain type of cartridge from China that when heated too high makes arsenic, and people making the concentrate at home who process it incorrectly. Local despencary items will not make you sick.

    Dede, thanks for the info. I have a couple edibles lying around. Gummies. In past, got mild vertigo when I took a half dose, but just high with a full dose. It was straight THC, no CBD that I know of. They were gifted. Can try them again. But I absolutely cannot use THC anytime but at night. Cannot function with it during the day. I'm a lightweight. Tried ingesting CBD oil, didn't do much, probably didn't use enough. Too expensive. Vaping it seems to do more, but haven't tried it with straight CBD, which I realize has a very small amount of THC. Don't really need anything right now but will consider the alternatives. Thanks again for your wisdom.
