When Nothing Helps


Recommended Posts

"the past few days have been really bad and nothing is helping to even take the edge off. not getting much sleep and its hard to eat because of the nausea from the pain"

 

I got that in an email from a friend of our family who is having real trouble finding some relief. he is a patient and has several strains to choose from but because of his injuries nothing is helping.

 

His wife has tried all the stand by's. Hot and cold, light stretching, meditation, and so on. He does still need to use narcotic pills but those aren't helping either. Dale was injured in an motorcycle accident two years ago when a truck left turned in front of him.

 

broke both femurs, left hip, left arm in several places, fractured both orbital sockets, skull fracture, broken jaw, lost all his teeth. He walks (Thank God) with the aid of a walker but mostly he uses his wheel chair. Dale is only 57 years old and a good guy.

 

I am asking for suggestions I can pass along that may give this guy some relief. His wife said someone suggested hypnotism and if anyone in the community has used that let me know.

 

Thanks to all who have sent suggestions its really appreciated.

 

Dale has tried medibles, capsules, hashish, and he uses a vaporizer. Dale is like many unfortunately whose injuries set the patient up for a life time of suffering.

 

Was hoping that someone may of heard of a new treatment or.... the alternative community is always good about surprising the world with something spectacular every now and then.

Has he tried medibles? Since he has access to medicine he could try switching it up with medibles. Make some butter and use it to make cookies. Set the oven at 310 and you will enhance the CBD to THC ratio. Worth a try.

One of the most powerful pain killers in marijuana is caryophyllene. This compound is responsible for the taste and smell of black pepper. Some strains have more of it than others.

 

If you stick you nose in the bag and it makes you want to sneeze, it probably has a usable amount of this compound in it.

 

Caryophyllene has a boiling point of 246 degrees F.

 

If you warm the herb to 310F you will insure that all of that pain killer is gone before you eat it.

 

Here is information about caryophyllene:

I was going for the sweet spot between the THC9 and the CBD. It helps my patients and myself with nerve pain. I would only recommend what has worked. The oven will spike over 310 at times. Hopefully, staying below 320 and keeping all the CBD.

I'll say it again.

 

heating above 246F will absolutely destroy important pain killing properties of the herb.

You already said it, no need to filibuster. You can get the Caryophyllene from eating some hot peppers. So if your patient needs it, give him some peppers too. You have to be flexible. Everyone is a different puzzle.

I hadn't heard of this volatile caryophyllene before, so I looked it up also. Wikipedia isn't the best source of real hard data, but there seem to be references behind these numbers:

I like to admit when I'm wrong and I was. It was a different pain killer;

http://arstechnica.com/science/news/2007/10/chili-pepper-pain-killer.ars

 

caryophyllene is something I use in my topical oil.

 

The FDA has approved caryophyllene as a food additive. When used in a topical application the FDA recommends that you use no stronger than 8% as stronger mixtures will cause a skin burn.

 

Essential oil, collected from industrial hemp strains, may contain up to 35% caryophyllene.

Very good article about using raw plant leaves and bud and juicing them and mixing in other types of fruit juice to mask the raw green taste. Not sure if this would work for pain though. Supposedly doesn't give you the high either. Article is in High Times Medical Marijuana issue winter 2011.
