    Study finds THC Eliminates Morphine & Heroin Dependence

    A recent study has concluded that THC, the active ingredient in marijuana can completely eliminate morphine dependence in rats. This finding is yet another nail in the coffin of the idea that cannabis has no medicinal value.

    This study shows that development of new treatments derived from marijuana could relieve withdrawal effects of opiates and suppress drug dependence.

          And yet people still get on my case for calling it a miracle drug.

          I'm thinking this fact is why it's still illegal. It certainly keeps me off of criminally priced pharmaceuticals.

              i aint got no report, but i got 14 days w only two vicoden swallowed. ive smoked about three times more than usual, but havent missed a day of work. its temporary, and neccessary, and on the heels of a decade and a half of virtually nonstop pain killers. weened myself to 30 days of nothing but vicoden and herb, and trying to get to thirty days with as little help as possible. could never do this without herb, wouldnt even try...and it has nothing to do w the placebo effect! or psychological advantage---thats what the booze is for....

                Thank you so much skip & granny for posting those links, I have to go down on them this night!

                I have found when "selftesting" similar, that cannabis doesnt make me feel better when on the withdrawl, but in most cases it bold´s them more However, make your erb into oil and the relief part starts What im saying is that only extract work for me, but it surely works IMHE!! Have told it before in couple of threads in this forum!

                However, this kinda studies & thread should be revolutionary in medical scene, but I wont bet my money they make it official program in years.. (havent read those studies yet Prohibition is so deep inside of many and too many are making lot´s of €´s & $´s in the medical poppy industry alone A glance of light in the future fo shure, but how long it takes before all kinds of addiction specialist start to recognize it around globe?? Wont even mention goverments....

                  i've learned the same thing, by just studies on friends.....6 years or so ago my friend , at the time, now girlfriend, was addicted to heroin,it wasnt til she met me and remembered the excellent qualities in good marijuana, as it was very hard to come across where i was living at the time and my friends and i were basically the only ones to have good herb, well anyways me and this girl started hanging out, gettin her off the dope, LSD helps too...., but with good herb, it seems people with chemical dependencies , are able to kick the habit... glad its been scientifically proven because i always thought THC and LSD def. help prescription pill addictions

                    Herb made it possible for me to kick my tobacco cigarette habit. And herb keeps me from going back to the tobacco cigarettes. Quiting was particularily hard for me because I would get muscle twitches in all random areas and sometimes I just couldn't handle it and would go back to cigarettes. Or I would fail because my depression would enlarge and I would feel soul-less.

                    Seriously, Thank God For Herb

                        Right on sub I am 2 1/2 weeks sober, and it is a bitch, but so is being sick and sleeping all day.

                        I agree that weed helps a lot, w/ being sick and cravings, and especially the dark cloud of depression that surrounds you when you dont have w/e opiate of choice is.

                        Good luck on your sobriety sub

                          An interesting article. Maybe in real high doses like an injection that might work, but I dunno otherwise. hs
                          I used to take many pain meds for chronic pain. The stuff I grew just wasn't sufficient... strong, ak47, but it often caused pain/stress cause it was so energetic.

                          Buying the stuff at clubs is so pain relieving! I wish I would have had more potent pot easily accessible years ago I probably would have never taken narcotics. Too bad I can ill afford 20$g. Insurance companies love to cover morphine... when they should be covering ganj.

                            You are missing a point movado

                            Like these studies as many ppl in this thread confirmes you, cannabis can ease withdrawal symptoms of strong opiates like Heroin, Methadon, but IMHE, only when using extracts they help you...

                            I wish luck for all ppl who are struggling with their deadly habit and pls ppl, make some high potency extracts and you know what im talking about :wink:

                              O OK they are talking about injecting THC,something I'm sure most of us havent experienced.For awhile there when I was reading I was getting the impresssion that smoking erb can somehow alleviate the withdrawls from heroin or methadone.I know for experience thats a bunch of bunk.But maybe slamming THC can show some promise.That would be great wouldnt it!
