CBD Blocks Psychoactivity of THC = Huge Win for Patients Needing High Dosages THC

By Dragana Komnenov PhD

RxLeaf

CBD binds to a different site on the CB1 that, when filled, prevents THC from binding. This is very big news for cancer and chronic pain patients who need high doses of THC to manage their symptoms.

Cannabis is a complex mixture of hundreds of different cannabinoids, terpenes and other chemicals that may modulate the effects of THC, the main psychoactive constituent of the plant. A number of studies now support the view that CBD may reduce the negative psychotropic effects of THC while also enhancing its positive therapeutic actions.

Catch-22 is Alive & Well ~ How I Learned To Live With Chronic Pain Without Opioids

In the Spring, my wife, Paula Cas wrote a post about my battle with chronic pain, pain clinics, and opioid use. Catch-22 Is Alive And Well.

Just wanted to post a short update about how things have been going since then.

After a lot of research, trial and error, I have come up with non-Opioid, no prescription treatment for my chronic pain that works for all but my worst pain days … Rainy days or extreme cold.

A high THC strain of Medical Cannabis usually with the colors purple or blue in the name in flower or dab form. I also found a website with high quality hemp based CBD Oil products, 750mg twice a day most days and 1500mg twice a day on bad days, that has been great help for pain and sleep. The final product in my new pain management program is from a company where my wife is involved. Plexus Worldwide offers a product called Nerve and Plexus Ease which has done wonders for my neuropathy.**

I have once again put the back surgeon on hold while I continue t0 do all I can to keep surgery, braces, canes and wheelchairs at bay as long as possible.**

Catch 22 Is Alive And Well

Paths I Walk

By Paula & Oro Cas

Catch-22:  A dilemma or difficult circumstance from which there is no escape because of mutually conflicting or dependent conditions.

I sit looking at this document wondering how to write about the craptastic Catch-22 that has appeared in my husband’s life. My husband is one of the millions of people who suffer with chronic pain. His journey to where he is today began 35 years ago when he worked for a traveling carnival. While working to repair a ride, the clutch holding the ride’s car opposite the repairmen failed sending the cars around the track. Hubby and two other workers fell 50 feet resulting in multiple fractures and life threatening injuries. Combine those injuries with 30 years of commercial truck driving, a near fatal lightning strike resulting in damage to his nerve sheaths and joints, along with degenerative disk disease, stenosis, scoliosis, and osteoarthritis ……
