DEAR NURSE SUSAN

Dear Susan: I suffer from Fibromyalgia and as you would expect I have good days and bad days…..and the bad days are really hard. I support my family so missing work isn’t an option and I use  prescription meds to get through most days. I’ve read that cannbis is an alternative to opioids, but I don’t want to trade in one problem for another. Can you explain how cannabis can replace the current pain medication I’m using. Thank you,

Can Cannabis Help Migraines?

I have been plagued with migraines for the last 20 years. I have tried everything and sometimes it helps, but most of the time it doesn’t. I’ve never tried cannabis and I’m a little bit afraid, but willing to put up with the high if it will ease my pain. I figure I can ’t function with the pain, so what does it matter if I get high? Thanks for your help.

Dear Nurse Susan,

I am a huge football fan, from high school football, all the way to the NFL. I’d watch football 24/7 if I could! The Super Bowl is this weekend and I cringe every time one of those NFL players bangs his head. I’ve been hearing more and more about CTE and how devastating it is to football players, boxers and hockey players. Is medical marijuana really helpful for that? I saw in the news a while back that retired NFL player Marvin Washington is suing attorney general Jeff Session over marijuana! That’s bold!

I’m a mom to my 5-year-old son and 3-month-old daughter. I’ve suffered from anxiety and depression for a majority of my adult life and have found that cannbis helps me feel grounded, present, and allows me to be my true self to my children, my partner, and myself. Since getting pregnant with my daughter nearly a year ago, I used cannbis to help with nausea during the first trimester (it literally was the only thing that actually helped), but cut back on my usage thereafter for fear of the “unknown.” 

Now, as a nursing mother, I’m really looking to learn more about cannbis and breastfeeding and if I’m doing harm to my baby girl by using in moderation. It’s hard to think that cannbis would be causing her harm when it is so helpful to me, but I really just don’t know and haven’t found any helpful literature. Can you help?

I was invited to a dinner party and they will be serving food with cannabis in it. I haven’t smoked marijuana for at least 20 years, but I am curious and would like to try it again. I’ve heard that today’s cannabis isn’t anything like what we used to smoke back in the day. How do I navigate this party without making a fool of myself and getting too stoned?

Sincerely,

Somewhat Naïve

Raw Cannabis: The Superfood of Superfoods!

 

Dear Nurse Susan

In one of your earlier posts you mentioned raw cannabis as “the superfood of superfoods.”

What does that mean, and would it be good to include raw cannabis in my diet?

Sincerely,

Health Seeker
