Marijauna contains cannbiods, which in specific ways, verified by numerous medical authorities, may/will provide relief from peripheral neuropathy. The brain possesses receptor to organic substances found in this plant. The cannbiods in cannibis are, as stated in various medical literature, more effective then opoids from the poppy plant or its synthetic derivatives for treating PN.
In Hawaii, with a license, a person can possess, grow and use marijauna in their home. I am considering taking out the license, granted by the Dept. of Health in Oahu, at a cost of around $ 250-300. I am also traveling to Washington State, in June, where a progressive populace has legalized marijauna for sale, possession, medical use and for personal recreational use.
I have experimented with cannabinoids, in my home, and found them to be relaxing and almost eliminating most spastic, clamping, weakness and various other symptoms of CIDP and diabetic PN. The majority of my dysfunctions are CIDP based, with diabetic PN accounting for perhaps 20% of my PN (have had diabetes for 25 years with very little body destruction, so far)
Researching the world-wide medical sanctioned organic substance in marijuana, cannabinoids, I've discovered that there are many derivatives of the major strains. Apparently certain derivative will ease the pain of CIDP PN, without producing euphoric or hallucinogenic experiences. I have no interest in the 'high' of cannisbis. If I wanted a 'high' I would just take 3000+ mg of gabapentin at one time and let the hallucinations and nausea commence.
Perhaps, in a very general way, as to not tread into legal realm where you might incriminate yourself or offend the moderators here on this very informative site, you might discuss, in a very general manner, your thoughts on MEDICAL MARIJAUNA.
