    Sticky Medical Marijuana for Crohn's Disease and Ulcerative Colitis

    Even more so actually as you can get any contaminates from the area in outdoor grown stuff. I think some people just think outdoor equals natural or organic so that gets into their mindset. Something grown indoors means you can control every aspect of it, so it could very well be much more...

    Sticky Medical Marijuana for Crohn's Disease and Ulcerative Colitis

    Pretty sure we are all talking about the medical kind here, although depending on the state and who you choose as a provider ( you can have 2 here ) I suppose this could still happen. The doctors will recommend vaporizing it over smoking it everytime as well, looking into the pills, tinctures...

    Sticky Medical Marijuana for Crohn's Disease and Ulcerative Colitis

    Hyper and ADHD are different, someone with ADHD for example wouldn't be big on reading, which I love, but your point is the same. Fast acting isn't really important, I'm used to the pills taking 20-40 minutes to kick in anyways when I was taking vic's. As to what strain of MJ freaked me out, I...

    Sticky Medical Marijuana for Crohn's Disease and Ulcerative Colitis

    The tinctures, capsules and edibles are what I am looking at/into actually, and how effective they are for pain. A friend of mine says its also good for nausea. If they can do something about the swelling and the nausea as well as effectively treat the pain, that would be wonderful. The reason...

    Sticky Medical Marijuana for Crohn's Disease and Ulcerative Colitis

    I want something for the pain more than anything else, yes I know inflammation is one of the things at the root of my pain, but none of the many anti-inflammatories I have taken over the years has done much to counter the pain. I have two other chronic issues that muddy the water somewhat...

    Sticky Medical Marijuana for Crohn's Disease and Ulcerative Colitis

    I hope no one gets me wrong here, I am not against MJ as a healing device, far from it. I think the US singlehandedly getting it outlawed pretty much world wide set medicine and other fields back decades. I don't think they ever had the right to do what they did in the first place, and its...

    Sticky You Are Not A Burden!!!

    One thing people have to remember is your family, at least those close to you do understand. After time goes by, they simply don't know what to do and are frustrated, just as much as you and don't express it well. When you listen to any of their misplaced anger, remember back when you first...

    Sticky Medical Marijuana for Crohn's Disease and Ulcerative Colitis

    Did not know that, btw, so do opioids, though it does far more for say arthritis, which I do not have. With a patch I could get rid of the bad effects of the acetaphetamine all together, but you are on a straight dose amount, which as I've explained I'd rather control, more when having a bad...

    Sticky Medical Marijuana for Crohn's Disease and Ulcerative Colitis

    The steroids and anti inflammatories my primary has tried on me haven't worked at all. As for constipation, I don't get that at all, Vic's help regulate me if anything. As in, I needed some hardening added, at the best of times. :poo:

    Sticky Medical Marijuana for Crohn's Disease and Ulcerative Colitis

    And how is MJ not a palliative ? I do understand that pills may have bad effects on the digestive tract though. I simply do not care, as I once told my primary, faced with living with the pain or faced with taking something that would kill me slowly, but there would be no pain, I would take the...

    Sticky Medical Marijuana for Crohn's Disease and Ulcerative Colitis

    I was taking Vic's myself, rather strong ones I guess ? 600 MG.. I have the feeling that for some, they do get them high ? I'm hyperactive. The only thing I ever noticed, is they make me drowsy. And thats when I took like five at a time on "bad" days. Otherwise I only took one or two at a...

    Education for smokers.

    This is for all those out there that like myself can't throw those cigg's away. I'm sure all of your doctors have told you that cigg's/nicotine are bad, and can cause, make flare ups worse. I'm sure for some of you, they also prescribed the patch or other things and had absolutely no problems...

    Sticky Medical Marijuana for Crohn's Disease and Ulcerative Colitis

    I have nothing against MJ as a treatment, and I'm sure its a Godsend to some, but for people like me that don't want to get "high", it disturbs me that lower opiate forms which won't get you high are being so vilified. I get that they are over prescribed and abused, but isn't that the doctors...

    Hi, let me introduce myself.

    I will let this thread do most of my talking for me http://www.crohnsforum.com/showthread.php?p=813161#post813161 I said a lot there already, mostly looking for advice. I could go further into my "stomach" issues if asked, I guess, but you get the general idea there. I do not have confirmed...
