Have any of you vaped/smoked weed during this?

Posted , 5 users are following.

Greetings all, just wanted some input regarding the use of medical marijuana while being sick with mono. I have had mono for about 15 months, at this point I have stopped counting and just went with the flow. I still have quite the fatigue, occasional low fevers when I do not sleep enough or too stressed, eye floaters, eye fatigue, pain in legs, and brain fog.

I also deal with PTSD, chronic migraines and neck pain, along with severe pain in hands and wrists, I believe its from carpal tunnel, but mono makes it worse. I am at the point where I need something for stress and constant pain. I believe that my constant stress/anxiety/depression are what has made the mono thrive in my system. So I believe it would be more beneficial for me personally.

I am currently only interested in wax pens since they are more easy on lungs, but with higher CBD ratio for my pain/headaches, and low THC for my stress and random burts of ptsd episodes. I will be seeing my regarding all of this so please save your smart comments.

I am adjusting my diet right now and making more strict habits, but will list my nutrition so you understand how serious I am about my health,

For breakfast I have 1-2 tablespoons of coconut oil with yogurt, but recently changed back to peanut butter and toast instead of yogurt. Since I discovered my yogurt had 36g of sugar and 36g of carbs per cup.

I am now having a mid day smoothie of Wild Blueberries, read they flush out EBV.

Few hours later I try to stick to my grilled chicken, but have not been doing that lately lol. I also have a pack of Emergen-C, sit out in the sun for 20mins, take 1500mcg of b12, and finish my night with Herbal Tumeric ginger tea.

I will be getting much more strict on my diet and adding asparagaus, celery, and cilantro to my diet. Also have been trying to take mid day naps which of helped substantially.

Please comment your opinions on my thought, just know that I will not being doing any smoking if my doctors do not think its best. Please comment your opinions on my thought of my next remedy

    Hi Fra

    Personally I have not done any marijuana as its prohibited here in Aust. I can speak highly if having a very clean and healthy diet filled with lots of green veg and berries. Have you tried porridge for breakfast???? I have home made porridge using rolled oats and alittle but of stewed apples or blue berries on top. As long as you dont add any sugar or honey its pretty good for you. Chicken has unfortunatly been out of bounds for me as it gives me ibs, so have been living off pork and salmon. Either way diet can be a great help to heal your body, especially Alkaline based foods (google it). Since increasing the amount of greens, garlic and tumeric in my diet my symptoms seem to have improved.

    If you do decide to start medical marijuana, please let us know how it goes.

      Unfortunately, I have had a pretty clean diet for awhile, as I mentioned. I have noticed the changes in energy, but it has been very minimal. If I can decrease my stress, I feel that I would be much better. So I hope that I can have success with my new thought

    Hi - I'm at month 7 (2nd time getting it) with mono. I have recently looked into a CBD/Humulus Oil for immune support therapy. Unfortunately cost is the only thing holding me back as it is $200 for one month supply.

    Best of luck to you.

      I can definitely understand prices are quite steep. Getting my card alone will cost $210. Although its expensive, i am the point where I need to try additional routes to get better rest and calm my stress and episodes. Unfortunately, regular meds for my conditions intensified my problems so i refuse to go back to any of that.

    Hi Fra,

    It sounds like you have been doing a lot of good things in terms of diet and vitamins and things. Like Sweebee it's not something I've ever tried the marijuana, I think I would be too frightened too but I do understand too how they say it has helped people in real pain and suffering too. Just something not to do lightly I would say and only under discussion / direction of the doctor if at all.

    Oh listen Fra it's only understandable that you would feel stressed and anxious given such a long and weary road with this virus. It's such a horrible and awful thing to go through, I just hope and pray for a breakthrough in your situation and remember it can be normal to take this extended period of time and then get fully better - it took me a good while I know and only got there thanks to God for sure and I still believe you will get better again and that there is hope and recovery ahead - hang in there.

    In terms of other good things to try, herbs like siberian ginseng, oregano and echinacea have all helped me during times of viruses and when I had mono, and also given the baking soda remedy a try (1/2 tea spoon full of baking soda dissolved in half a cup of water twice per day on empty stomach, doing this for 1-2 weeks - no longer - the alkalinity of baking soda is great for fighting viruses).

    Other things that can help with pain are herbs / supplements good for calming the nervous system, as well as a B complex vitamin per day, things like Co-enzyme Q10, cayenne pepper, feverfew and passion flower can all have benefits and are things I've found quite soothing and relaxing to take. Thinking about you and hoping so much the pain settles and remember God is in control and still believing you are going to get through this and be fully well and free once again - truly I believe that thanks to Jesus.

    Hi Fra, i have been looking at med marijuana for ebv and cmv too. my understanding is that it is effective as a tincture or a paste rather than vaping or smoking it. as it is not legal here in Australia, ive been looking for other solutions and have read countless recommendations for low dose naltrexone. my doctor gave me a script for it and i will be starting it tonight. ill keep the board up to date with my progress, if any. you might want to do some research i to it too.

    best of luck
