I know there are umpteen articles out there for and against, and I have searched our board archives to read what we've posted previously, but I'm looking for personal anecdotes from those who may not have commented on the issue before.

We are experiencing chronic, severe pain with no relief outside of large doses of opioids on a regular basis. This has its own set of side effects and is not practical for the long term. The neuro has offered to authorize medical cannabis. Has anyone used it for pain? Feedback?

No, we haven't used it.

There are a few PWP in California, where this is legal, that say it helps with pain. Let us know how it goes for you if you try it. Hope something can help, without the side effects.
