does cannabis help with back pain relief ?
im not trying to be funny or upset any1, nor do i want to provoke a reaction or stir it up!
here's the thing, i have smoked for 20 years and i never noticed any pain relief, at the minute im suffering a bad back and knee and my headache never gets better after smoking ,but i do get them bad. and no i haven't researched strains for this but i smoke a bit and its all different and i grow different strains but never found a pain reliever by chance.
I CANT STRESS ENOUGH THAT IM NOT TALKING ABOUT SERIOUS PROBLEMS!
I fully believe that cannabis will help people with muscular disease and epilepsy ect ect ect, but i watched a program called american weed and there were people on there getting scripts for things like a bad back and torn muscle. by the same token there were lots of people that were getting real help and good advice from the stores.
watching some of the patients smoke up at home, they were just getting stoned and loving it ,and some even claimed instant 100% pain relief which i find hard to believe, however proceeded to smoke up two or three bongs after they were apparently free of pain lol. they talked about different strains and how they buy for the high and taste rather than pain relief.
i hope that they allow mmj in the uk soon and i will be first on the list hopefully, i hope that america goes fully legal and the world follows, my dream would be dutch style coffee shops worldwide lol
im just looking for opinions not arguments ok, and maybe a recommendation for a nice indica back pain strain lol
Yes, some strains are bettert targeting symptoms than others.

Pain relief? Three words: OG Kush. And not the kind grown from seeds.
I had neck and upper back stiffness for ages until I started growing and smoking OG regularly. It's a powerful muscle relaxant...
It's all about the quality of genetics. Sure, I've smoked plenty of shit that wouldn't do much good for a seriously ill patient. That's why it's all about type and quality. I doubt a non-legal environment could have anything to approach what we have in a medical state.

i have degeneritive disc disease and yes it does help for pain ,inflamation and prevents spasms i used to take celebrex twice a day tramadol in bettween celebrex doses temazepam for sleep because of pain and spasms during sleep oh and two years after taking these lisinopril for high blood pressure daily wich were caused by meds then liver problems so off the celebrex now naproxin gained 30lbs. said screw it got my dr. rec for mj now i lost 40lbs. no more need for high blood pressure meds and the only pain med i take is tramadol maybe once a week when there is a long day at work i do construction.
I was prescribed steroidal treatments for my herniated disc as well as endless hours of painful physical therapy. I was also prescribed a long list of anti-depressant/anti-anxiety medication for my bipolar disorder. High quality medical cannabis is all I take now. It's all I need. Is it a magic bullet for all my ills? No. But it helps. A lot. And I just smoked some.
I find that my extract mixed with a small amount of 151 rum, makes an excellet tintcure for pain.
For me it's totally different than smoking.
Heavy hitting Indica based strains work pretty good with pain. Do they stop 100% of the pain? Not always. Do they destroy your liver and other organs like Opiates and other 'legal' prescription drugs? Nope. Strong edibles work very well as they are time released pain meds instant of instant put you down like you would get with toking. Also, tinctures and vaporizing work well for me, no cancer causing agents and super easy to do. Most medical patients are learning that strains high in CBD/CBN are ideal for them as the THC levels are not as high and they still get pain relief without being stoned off thier butts. Cannabis truly is the real 'wonder' drug of the world and that's why big pharma and the government keeps it illegal. Not much longer you bastards!

indica strains work best for me and my chronic back pain.
your results may differ.
I notice that when I smoke it relieves my back pain. I had surgery last year that left me with extremely tense back muscles. The only things that work are either weed or xanax. I don't like taking xanax because I become a zombie so I smoke weed instead
I make cannabuter then make cookies and caramels to induce the pain relief....eating seems to give alot better pain relief than smoking or vapin...even the day after
