I think I've mentioned before that the state has recently confiscated many of my neighbors property, cut down their trees, and created a long narrow clearing in the woods that runs for miles.

 I like to think that as in the days of my youth sometime when all the big earth raping equipment has moved on to cause mayhem elsewhere, even before their silly little interstate is officially opened that Johnny Hempseed will have traveled up and down large sections of it spreading his joy for the public good.  I have mentioned my strange beliefs to some of my neighbors who like most everyone else around here don't think too highly of the governor's landscaping efforts.

I skipped the link on S's recommendation.  Anyway, we have heard a lot about people who were dosed by eating cookies and things like that at a party being hospitalized.  Not everyone has a good time.  No one should ever be administered a drug without their knowledge at anytime for any reason. 

But I have never heard of anyone checking into a hospital for a reaction to something that they smoked willingly, as long as it was unadulterated in the first place.

In gummy's case, we are talking about someone who is willing to give it a go, knowing that they are in for something unusual or not.  Doing something with full knowledge of what it is you are doing matters.  In the case of mj, a bad reaction would happen the first time and be mild and over quickly if it happened at all. 

These are informed adults who are asking the right questions beforehand and at a good place (here) to ask these kinds of questions.   Pain is such an interesting thing to discuss.  It is truly an individual issue.  Everyone reacts to meds differently depending on things like gender and the amount of pain using the 1 to 10 scale and obviously many more factors.

I'm just implying that in the case of cannibus, anecdotal information usually trumps and is more reliable than the official scientific versions that are bandied about far too often.  Someone who has used cannibus for 50 years is naturally skeptical of any official government report on anything.  The reason being is that they have personally been dealing with government issued lies regarding cannibus for 50 years.  I would say based upon that, the distrust comes honestly when you stand back and take a long look at the big picture.

Thanks for indulging the side trip down the rabbit hole.  Cannibus is one of the gateways to the rabbit hole afterall.  Other than petroleum, probably no other substance has been more abused by politics than cannibus.  Once in the rabbit hole, fact is too often found out to be fiction.

If the slant is that the use of MJ isn't totally harmless because it can cause issues under some very specific circumstances then I'm ok with that. As with any type of drugs there may be serious side effects depending on what might be called a "pre-existing condition" that may not be known at the time. More generally, what works for you (or me), might not work for everyone.

PS: The argument works for peanut butter as well. {#Wink}

 
Ha!! Right? I have never been one of those that thinks anything is for everybody. There is still such a lack of practical knowledge about cultivation/consumption that doesn't end w/a joke about cheeto eating stoners.

I suffered through Shingles and I know what a painful infliction it is.  I was a big pot smoker at that time and it can go two ways.  If she is not a smoker then the increased THC content of current strains may effect your friend in a negative fashion.  Instead of minimizing the pain her high may increase her sensitivity to the pain and if she obsesses it will become unbearable. Conversely if she can will herself to focus more on music or another distraction it could definitely help her at least temporarily. The only thing that seemed to help me was trying meditative exercises to control the neural input of the pain.  Sounds a bit cosmic but that or drinking yourself into a stupor were the only relief I could find.  As I lived in Northern Cape Breton at that time I actually would go outside in the freezing cold without a shirt to numb the nerve endings on my side and back to seek some relief albeit as my skin defrosted it appeared to increase the pain.  Good luck

Hard to say.  Everyone reacts differently to different strains.  The worst that could happen is nothing.  Iffen you're willing to give it a go, I would suggest an Indica strain as it seems to be more of a body high than a head high, at least to me.  She may get enough of a buzz to be able to relax for an hour and plain forget that it bothers her.  That hour or two could be refreshing, if only temporary.  Enough so perhaps to keep on dealing with it a little better knowing that there can be some ocassional relief until it runs its course.

Good luck.  Shingles suck, period.  At least it does run its course eventually, keeping it away from the eyes is most important.
