In a world of intellectuals, this would suggest that marijuana apparently has other active chemicals. Yes, a large part of the benefit is pain tolerance, but apparently there's more in the plant than what's consumed in THC. Tolerance/"dealing with it" are not the same as suppression.

Some of those who use medical marijuana don't use it for pain relief. They use it because it helps with things like the side effects of chemo, such as nausea.

For those with glaucoma marijuana decreases the pressure inside the eye. That may slow the progression of the disease, preventing blindness.

For some people it helps controls epileptic seizures.

It's been shown to relieve certain symptoms from multiple sclerosis

Which is obviously why those on mj can still function as a normal person and those on the heavy meds are brain dead zombies that might as wll be dead anyway. Got it, thanks.

Agreed. The use of facts to defend marijuana sickens me. That disgusting drug needs to be kept off the streets so the Mexicans intolerable criminal element will stay out of our neighborhoods and towns.

The researchers found that an oral tablet of THC, the psychoactive ingredient in cannabis, tended to make the experience of pain more bearable, rather than actually reduce the intensity of the pain.

That DOESN'T count as pain relief?
 
2012-12-23 09:25:11 AM  
From my experience Vicodin doesn't relieve pain either. I remember specifically that I could still feel the pain of the wound, I just didn't CARE about it any longer.

Same thing with marijuana.

Also, it should be legal for recreational use, no need for the crutch of "medicinal use".

It also helps with migraines. I guess those aren't considered painful though.

Yeah, what a mistake it is to smoke pot to deal with pain.

And do you know what really reduces pain levels? Heroin.

Exactly! I was on morphine after my c section and that shiat worked but when they switched to oxycodone and tylenol the pain wasn't minimized much but I didn't give a shiat.

The happy shiny pharmaceutical industry wants you to buy their expensive side-effect loaded drugs that will give you cancer in 10 years so they can then sell you more drugs.

is this what you suggest for pain relief?
www.trueswords.com
You know, because the pain stops when the cops stop hitting you, right?
 
2012-12-23 09:36:25 AM  
Ibupofrin will stop or blunt most pain, vicodin and the like just turns you into a socially acceptable drug addict.
 
2012-12-23 09:36:38 AM  
Toots says it doesn't relieve his pain, but it does help his pain pills last longer. It keeps him out of that horrible downward spiral of needing more and more narcotics, and that in itself is plenty good enough for me.

/so proud of my homies for being first to legalize it
 
2012-12-23 09:38:29 AM  
I will say that after being diagnosed as diabetic back in 2006, I've had to avoid any exposure to the stuff. It makes my BGL drop through the floor and vomit off balconies.

However, not my place to tell people they can't use it if it works better for them.

/I still laugh at the idea of MJ being anti-nausea though. Most of my old neighborhood would beg to differ.

My mother has expensive prescriptions just to counter the side effects of other expensive prescriptions. The brilliance of the business model astounds me.
 
2012-12-23 09:39:59 AM  
I'm all for legalizing it, but please stop making up shiat and claiming anecdotes are facts.

Jake Havechek: Ibupofrin will stop or blunt most pain,


Well, somebody's never felt real pain in his life. You might be lucky and just have deadened nerves or high tolerance. Or, and I hope you're sitting, you just haven't felt pain yet. I really hope either way you die old and happy without ever feeling something ibuprofen couldn't help.

So did submitter intentionally choose that very specific headline with the full intention of being a twatwaffle or did the submitter choose that headline because he was too dim to understand the larger implications of the study? Inquiring minds want to know.
 
2012-12-23 09:45:53 AM  
Oh, no! What if they made marijuana legal, even though all it does is make you feel good? The horror! THE HORROR!

(THC), the primary psychoactive compound of cannabis.[2][3] However, there are known to exist numerous other cannabinoids with varied effects.

Hey submitard...nice of you to come up for air from looking for the birth certificate long enough to deal some once again, conservative rhetorical tired a$$ old arguments and drive by talking points...

Crap headline like this is no better than a conservative talk show sound bite....f*ck you

 
2012-12-23 09:49:49 AM  
Not news. Alcohol makes you not care as much either. People like getting stoned, whether they have some medical condition or not . Big deal. Just don't drive while under the influence. And don't be surprised if employers don't want to hire someone who relies on perception distorting drugs as a lifestyle.
 
2012-12-23 09:50:15 AM  
Before a scan, participants were given either a 15mg tablet of THC or a placebo. THC, or delta-9-tetrahydrocannabinol, is the active psychotropic compound in cannabis - the ingredient that's responsible for the high that drives recreational use of the drug.

"Hey, let's run a study with neurocannabinoids and act surprised when they don't work like Tylenol!"

What these "scientists" might look like:

M11618: This isn't new. A lot/most perscription of pain killers are less effective than aspirin and Tylenol at actually reducing pain, they just get you stoned. Getting stoned is more fun than getting rid of pain. You may as well take a bunch of shots as take a Vicodin.


Heh, taking shots is actually better for my constant sciatica than vicodin. I know it's going to destroy my liver, but ironically, so will the vicodin.

I can tell you (with my doctor's blessing) that ibuprofen doesn't do a damned thing for pain - it's an anti-inflammatory, not an analgesic.It's an NSAID that relieves symptoms which can cause pain, but it doesn't deal with pain itself. And, as an NSAID, ibuprofen also has its problems when it comes to chronic use.
 
2012-12-23 09:51:47 AM  
Pot has few proven negatives and is basically harmless. If a sick person thinks it makes them feel better, even if there is no scientic evidence in support, that's enough for me. Telling someone going through chemo not to smoke pot because it might be bad for them is idiotic and has everything to do morality and nothing to do with concern for the patient.

Yes; we need to build as many jails as necessary, and spare no expense to stamp out this scourge. People don't realize that stoner kids are the least of our problems; I worry about the crazed jazz musicians attacking our white women.
