One listener had a Eureka! moment after hearing about cannabis and Neuropathy on yesterday's show. She'd quit toking on-and-off in the last year or so, but hadn't connected it with the return of the nerve pain in her legs until she heard it on Cannabis Consciousness. She sent a link to this newscast that tells more about the neuropathy study:
She writes: I had a Eureka experience today listening to my friend's show, cannabis consciousness on KMUD. Harold Day read something about smoking cannabis for neuropathic pain. Last Christmas I when hurt my back in Florida that gave me nerve pains in my legs, I didn't smoke. Then when I got back, I kept on not smoking because I wanted to be clear for awhile. I didn't smoke for 6 months. Then I started again and it seemed my nerve pains went away. But I can't remember what came first. This Sept. I went to PA, and didn't smoke. And haven't smoked since I got back, so it's been nearly 2 months since I smoked. I'm having the pain again, but chalked it up to that I worked real hard harvesting when I got back and probably irritated my nerves from pressure on my back. Now I'm having it in my hands, and numbness too. So when Harold read that, I googled it and found the video below. I guess I should smoke again and see if it helps. Wouldn't that be wow? They say smoked it works better than oral meds - I assume that includes gabapentin..
