    Now that I have confirmed this works, I would like to share with you a very easy way to make cold sore medicine that works incredibly well; and it's made from weed. This medicine has worked so much better for me than any OTC or Rx treatment.
    Lastly, I can't take credit for this I found it on a website while searching google and am simply spreading knowledge.
    0.5 grams of the strongest bud you can get
    1 oz of strong alcohol (at least 70% and make sure its clear. Supposedly Iso Alcohol works but I've only used Devil's Springs)

    Step 1: Fill a container (like an old Rx or glass bottle) with 1 oz of alcohol.
    Step 2: Break up the .5g of bud into the jar but make sure its very finely done (may not want to use a grinder in case of losing THC)
    Step 3: Leave them in a cool dark place (i use a freezer) for 2-4 weeks, shaking often (every 1-3 days)


    Now the next time you feel a blister coming on simply dip a Q-tip into the solution (don't need much at all) and apply to the area. I dab it on, wait 10 seconds, then dab it again and chuck the Q-tip. Do this 3-4 times a day until the blister is fully gone.
    After using this multiple times and letting someone else try it I can tell you it works incredibly well. Once I apply it, if i keep up with it, the blister will virtually stop and start healing by roughly the next day. No prescription I have ever used can come close to the effectiveness of this. Apparently the THC stops the virus from replicating. The type a bud I used I'd consider headies if compared to medical CA nug (which I didn't have access to at the time of the experiment). The original experimenter believes this may actually stop the virus from coming back in that same place too. I have not had repeat blisters in the same area since. Please leave feedback as to how this works for you and let everyone know because I know cold sores suck.

    I would just like to say thank you to all who have found information I have been researching for a few hours now and finally something that will, ( not maybe) but will help. I found that after going to rehab 1 month after all the THC in my system was gone I broke out. After only having an initial breakout about 8-9 months ago. THC is a GOD Given Cure to all...:Rasta::Rasta:
    THANKS AGAIN FOR MAKING ME HAPPY, almost commited suicide today after being diagnosed with genital herpes....
    Thanks again

    You're very welcome, and if anyone has information to add please continue to do so (any information or perhaps an more effective method). Don't kill yourself over herpes!!! I only have cold sores but I know how you must feel and they have gotten me pretty upset/depressed too, but there's always tomorrow!! If anyone has tried this I would love feedback!

    I don't think smoking it would apply high enough concentration to the affected area. Thats why the q-tip dab method works so well.

    Years ago I tried the same thing (great minds, huh?) but instead of alcohol I used tea tree oil. The buds changed the color of the tea tree oil so I can only assume that some important ingredients were dissolved.

    I applied the tincture to the corners of my mouth where I was getting my cold sores, twice daily. After a day the sore dried up and after a couple of days it fell off!

    Then i figured lets use this stuff as a mouthwash, so I put some on my finger and rubbed it all around and used a tooth brush to brush it onto the inside of my cheeks and on my tongue and all over my teeth. Dont' do that cause it tasted really really bad. :(

    Anyway, to make a long story short. I've never had the cold sores come back. I'm cured! Thank you mj (and tea tree oil)!! :hippy:

    OH, and thanks for the good thread BeatlesRGod.
