So I've had chronic migraines for a while now and just recently I had to go to the hospital because it was so painful I couldn't function. I used to take prescription pills for it when I was younger, but it never really helped. I told my doctor this and he suggested I try medical cannabis and got me a card and recommendation. I've never smoked it before but am willing to try it to get rid of the migraines. The only problem is that my GF is super against weed. How can I explain it to her so she could be accepting of it? I smoke hookah so I was thinking about explaining how it's healthier because I'm not taking in nicotine.
I really, really, really, really, really, hate stoners. But if you have a legitimate medical need, by all means give it a shot. If your girlfrend doesn't want your pain alleviated dump her ass, she doesn't care about you.
Yeah I was skeptical about it at first too. But he started explaining how it could help and I thought I should see if it can help. I know a lot of people abuse it just to use it recreationally.
I wouldn't recommend weed OP. It can make the pain much worse in my experience.
If you're dead set against it though have her come in with you during a clinic visit. Talking to a certified professional might help convince her.
weed is shit all for migraines. Sure you will feel better about it because you are fucking stoned but dont imagine it will reduce the frequency or intensity or duration of your migraines.
If pot was such a great analgesic trust me it would be in fucking cough syrup.
I've done a fair bit of research regarding it because I was curious and i've heard it can be the best thing....or it can be the worst thing to do because it'll only make it worse. I want to try it to see which category I would fall into, but I just want to make sure shes ok with it because she has that stereotype in her head that all people sit in their basement all day and do nothing. It doesn't help that my neighbor literally lies with his parents and has no job and smoke weed all day in his garage with the garage door open. gonna be hard to convince her.
Do it anyway you dumb fuck. Does your girlfriend have a medical license? Does she have a better alternative for you? Who owns your body, you or her?
She can either get over it or she can fuck off. This isn't the kind of thing you ask permission for.
I use MMJ for my migraines. I use a tincture, it is glycerin based and you just squirt some under your tongue. It is effective within minutes.
Don't smoke weed, smoking is terrible for you.
