Marijuana component may ease pain, according to researchers at Temple University School of Pharmacy. They foundthat cannbidiol completely prevented the onset of the neuropathic, or nerve pain caused by the chemo drug Paclitaxel, "which is used to treat breast cancer". It is from what they say is the next largest (THC) compond coming from cannabis. This compond is called Cannabidiol, which also already shown/used to treact breast cancer, tumors in animal models and Professor of pharmaceutical sciences said also that it can produce really debilitatine neuropathic pain without euphoria. Sound so great, but when I tryed to share this same info with my pain magament Doctor, he just treated me like a drug addict. Even thow I've been self medicaing with pot for many years (now over 50) for sex abuse as a child, AHAD/ADD and for calmness. Over the year I've been prven right for my treatment choice. I live in New York City and these Doctor once you say pot your a juky even if you have proof in papers with experts around the world saying it's good for so many reason then why the stone wall. I am of good report, respected for who I am a man of God Yahweh, through Christ Jesus, by way of the Holy Spirit that I am known as Rev. Ralph Rivera, Jr.

For those of you who live in a location where purchasing and inhaling THC is illegal, ask your internist or family physician about prescribting Marinol (Elan Pharmaceuticals). The active ingredient in Marinol is synthetic THC. It is legal, although still off-label for pain.

You're missimg the point about this new finding. That this Cannabidiol comes from pot that controls pain with out getting that high feeling, that is already in the market, that you don't smoke and that has better controled. Please going to Jerusalem Post.com and see the information yourself. And by the way I've been studying natural meds. on my own for over 20 years and a natural med that I take now that works good is Corydalis = chiness herb and White Willow Bark. I'm no expert at all but no fool, understand plain english and follow information out there around the world. Thanks Rev. .R.Rivera
