I believe you. I've heard too many testimonies of the benefits of it medically to discount it. Here in NY state medical marijuana is legal and it's something I've at least looked into for my own chronic pain (R.S.D. ie constant nerve pain every second of every day). I've been trying *SPAM* Oil, which is derived from cannabis but doesn't have the THC that makes you high. Here at least *SPAM* oil is legal and unregulated in 46/50 states. The downside is that it's very expensive to take in the dosage that's recommended for pain management.
