    It's worth a shot....

    Hi guys, considering the healing properties of cannabis, maybe using hemp oil might help your skin. Folks with kidney disease get a nasty skin condition called pruritus- dry, very itchy, skin. There is no cure for it, but an article claims that endocannabinoids cleared it up for some pruritus sufferers. http://www.acmed.org/english/bulletin/ww_en_db_cannabis_artikel.php?id=207 Endocannabinoids and cannabinoids are closely chemically related, so if it were me, I'd give myself hemp oil rubdowns for a few weeks, just to see if there is any change. Internally, it's good for your heart, so you might want to take a tsp or two a day. If it doesn't work for your skin, it's still not a waste since it's good for your health! You can get hemp oil at any health food store or on line. I'm glad you fellows got together. :) It's a drag feeling alone. Now, mozzie on down to TY and meet some more friendly folks! http://www.treatingyourself.com :thumbsup:

    figured you were off opiates just wondering if they shot you with that phentnol. oh another one of my favorites was benadryll, sounds weird but it put me to sleep. i desperately tryed to sleep to pass time as fast as posible, i didnt have cable tv or nothin.
    really no sleep problems, sometimes takes long to fall asleep, but i work night shift so its tough anyway.
    im in cali, centeral coast. i was in fresno at the burn center there, it sucked ass. teaching hospital so theres always classes going on. i was talking about how its not worth it and telling them to pull the plug. they called in a class of phycyatrists, that was entertaining. im sure i scared every single one of those docs. there was absolutely nothing they could say to make me feel better and i made sure they knew it. i got too many stories ill shutup now! :eek:

    never thought of hemp oil, but ive used everything in the isle and no go. theres this product called elta thats ok but its super greasy and makes me itchy.
    i need to get my perscription, right now im living check to check so is tough to save money.

    Hey, Xcrispi, glad to help- oh, and it's sis, not bro! lol I will appreciate the feedback! Unlike much of the scientific community, I pay attention to those "anecdotal" stories- they are someone's personal experience and are as valid as a study, in my book.

    Storm Crow = sorry sis :)
    anyone willing to help w/ their 2 c worth is much appreciated .
    i hope the other dudes willing to kik it bk n forth a lil , i found it to be of some help going to burn meetings while in hospital talking to others that have been there n done that . their input meant more than the hosp. shrinks talking book at ya etc... they've had me bk. for aftercare n took me to see other patients more than once so they can see anythings possible n give them words of encouragement .
    i know when i got home i had tons of questions that drs. basically couldn't answer because of the nill survival rate . i went deaf from experimental antibiotics too and didn't help w/ communication skills in the least . now fools bionic n shit . cochlear implant now n would love to help others in my position .
    peace n God Bless S/C :thumbsup:

    Yikes 3rd degree burns over 85% that has to be rough.
    I have a neurological condition called dystonia (it's in the same family as
    Parkinson's) and have had to take huge doses of narcotics, benzo's, garden variety muscle relaxers, etc. Muscle relaxers will definitely screw with your liver and opioid / tylenol combos aren't great for renal function. I started taking marinol (think pot in a pill) last spring and it works wonders.
    Only problem is I can't get it anymore b/c I live in a screwy state (AL).

    Thanks so much Storm Crow;) I've got a good bit of research printouts and other info. Being a nurse doesn't hurt either. I just don't have anyone that will write the script at this point and I'm having to rely on my family's ins and they blew a gasket when my mother snooped her way into the RX part of the website and found out that I was taking it. So for now it's all about finding some plants.
