I have Post Hermetic Neuralgia since a year and have seen on internet that Marijuana is good for chronic pains. Does anyone have experience of using it?

    I take CBD oil, it isn’t helping my PHN but it has helped my chronic pain. I just had back surgery in April and I was experiencing setbacks with nerve pain and muscle spasms, Gabapentin didn’t really help but the CBD oil has. I am much more mobile. 

    You have to play around with the dose and start out low. Take one DROP not dropper full, two or three times a day. Sublingual, keep it under the tongue for two minutes before swallowing. You might even have to try a different brand before one works for you.

    I took cbd oil for it for a few weeks. It definitely took the edge off but is not a cure. I also have been a smoker of it for twenty years. Th edible cbd helped more than the smoking but they both help. The internal helped the pain more. The smoking helped my mind accept my condition more. My oil container broke on me and i lost 100 dollars worth of oil. I live in canada and am awaiting legalization at which time i will be buying more oil. Want to go get a prescription but figure just waiting for legalization would be easier. My doc wants me on gabapentin which im not at all interested in.  With the oil dont be scared just start slow until u can slightly feel it.  Its miraculous stuff. It made me a beleiver in herbs thats for sure. Whats your story woth this stuff. U can see mine im all over this site. Best of luck and hope your still doing your best to live your life. I know im tryn my damndest to not let this beat me. Hardest thing if my life thats for sure. Stay strong friend in phn

    I can get Marijauana only in the form of unprocessed weed and not as CBD or THC oil or tablets .

    Does anyone know the process of how it can be used  for relieving pain without getting stoned.

    Are you in a medical marijuana state.

    you can get the tincture

    the prescribing doctor can give the dosage

    there is little difference between getting stoned and havinf relief from PHN  mainly because 

    hopefully your nerves will relax you will experience euphoria and free from the yoke of
