I have read many articles suggesting highly concentrated cannabis oil can be effective and alternative meds for people suffering lupus. Pain and inflammation are two commonly recognized therapeutic properties of cannabis, so its ability to treat lupus effectively is not surprising. Like this review on a blueberry plant with high CBD and pain suppresing effect. Let me also hear your thoughts or personal experience when it come with medical marijuana. Thanks

The answer to your question?

No.  Cannabis cannot "cure" lupus.....but CAN alleviate inflammation,  reduce seizures, relieve pain, help regain appetite and help with sleeping issues.

Darla there are now so many different kinds. You can now get it in a pain patch form amoung other things. You more then likely didn't get the right kind. It's so different now then when we grew up

My insurance pays for lioderm patches and this wonderful cream. My Rheumatologist has to get special permission for it

I would love some of those lido dermatologist patches, but my rheumy won't prescribe them. She told me to just use the otc lidocaine creams from the pharmacy. I know the patches a expensive, they are probably considered a Tier 3 medication and I would have to fight my insurance company for them.

There is a pill form.....with very, very little THC in it.  That's the stuff that makes you loopy.  Although.....I get loopy off my "legal" meds all the time....I don't see what the big difference is.

Alcohol is a drug.  I sold it for years.......and saw the effects of misuse.  And yes, I think doctors are cautionary when prescribing medical cannabis. I can't help but think that it's because they have no financial gain (yet) to do so....and can't get past the image of Cheech & Chong.

Medical pot is much much different than the stuff we smoked in the woods as kids.

cake what cream are you talking about that's good, is that for joint pain I have osteoarthritis and joint pain and fibromyalgia and renauds oh and bursitis maybe a good cream would help my shoulder and my knees I don't know I don't like relying on pain medicine and like I said medical grade marijuana makes me feel out of control but in a lot less pain if I had the money I would probably rotate between the two kinds of pain relief but right now in Missouri it's not legal for medical marijuana it is in Illinois which is our neighboring state
