    Hello. Posting this thread for a friend. She has been diagnosed with pain disorder. She's asking if this can help her. I'm not so sure about this because I'm afraid that this could lead to an addictive behavior later on.

    Her pain disorder may be caused by psychological stress. I think she should visit her doctor for medication and treatment.

    While I am not a medical doctor I can offer some advice.

    In my opinion, Cannabis isn't a highly effective treatment for chronic pain, especially if its caused by psychological stress (which pain disorder is thought to be caused by).

    If however, your friend does decide to use Cannabis as a way of managing pain, I would recommend strains or extracts high in CBDA consumed by a means other than smoking. CBDA, according to my research, has the most significant analgesic properties of the phytocannabinoids found in Cannabis. Most strains contain very low levels of this Cannabinoid and, upon smoking or vaping, it is decarboxylated to CBD, which does not appear to have the same properties as an Analgesic.

    Well to be honest yes marijuana can lead to addiction, I smoked 4 grams a day for 10 years; I was self medicating for anxiety and it did help, but after two episodes of cannabis induced psychosis I cut down to a gram a day, now I just micro dose smoking just 0.1 grams of hash a day. Not thc is not going to help with chronic pain, however it may help with stress if you think their might be a connection. I will say this I would much rather smoke pot than take pain pills which are usually addictive themselves and far more dangerous than pot.
