Cannabis & Medical Marijuana VS Aspirin

The Endocannabinoid System in human body, which helps regulated memory functions, appetite, energy balance and metabolism, stress responses, immune functions, female reproduction, the autonomic nervous system, analgesia, thermoregulation and sleep, comes with two types of receptors:

  • Cannabinoid receptor type 1 (CB-1).
  • Cannabinoid receptor type 2 (CB-2).

Once ingested, #Cannabis is broken down and results in the release of cannabinoids into the body. Cannabinoids in a person’s body become attracted to the two receptors CB1 & CB2 and then has an effect.

"In the actual activity of the endocannabinoids, it works on the presynaptic portions of the nerve. When cannabinoids attach to a receptor, the presynaptic region will release a compound that will attach to the postsynaptic receptor that will give you the effect you’re looking for. It tends to prevent release of the neurotransmitters." Dr. Christopher Prince said.

Unlike Opioids,Tylenol & #Aspirin which block the transmission of pain, Cannabis instead decreases the amount of pain transmission, which inhibits its ability to send a pain message to the brain. With a current lack of research, the efficacy of the pain inhibition is word of mouth at best, which Prince admits.

"Tylenol and Aspirin, in my opinion, are two of the most lethal painkillers out there, because you can self-medicate, and there’s no prescription required. They work well, but you start dealing with the abuse potential." He add.

I prefer weed to aspirin every day of the week. That doesn't mean from time to time i need both.

To call something lethal just because humans have tendency to exaggerate in taking things is not right.
This should not be the characterised as lethal. Lethality is in the dose. Aspirin has its own medical benefits. That is a fact. His benefits outweigh side effects they give. Cannabis has medical benefits as well; as a fact. There is no reason to compare em. Why not combine them?

Aspirin actually has bad side effects that can be deadly. I grew up with a kid whose parents kept giving him Aspirin for headaches instead of taking him to the doctor. He develop bleeding ulcers in his stomach and end up dying from it. (Now that might not have happened if his parents would have taken him to the doctor and not just gave him aspirin.) I was around 16-17 years old when that happened it is one of the reasons I use cannabis and I don't like taking pills. I do occassionally take an aspirin but I don't like to and use Aspirin very sparingly.
Tylenol is known to damage the liver. Many parents use Tylenol to treat their teething child. Which is really hard on a child's liver and it makes it where it won't work for a fever when they have a fever as effectively. Sadly there is no strong warning about these drugs and I highly suggest using cannabis over these drugs even in children. Saying that no I did not give my children marijuana when they were growing up. But if weed was legal I would have feed it to my kids as all humans should be eating cannabis in our diets to prevent diseases. And cannabis is safer for pain relief.

kept giving him aspirin

Do not get me wrong, but a lot of pseudoscience, self educated parents are in America. Think about why we in Europe do not have that big problem with opiates for example.

Advertisement of drugs is part of the reason we have an opiate problem here. Most countries don't allow all the Big Pharma advertisement. We have a whole lot of people who die who shouldn't from people acting as their own doctor. But we also have lots more who die following doctors advice sometimes western medicine isn't the best. Some times nature has the best medicine.

I personally use doctors for diagnosis, setting bones and the occassional antibotic if needed I would use western treatment but I always search out natural cures and treatment firsts that are safe or have little side effects.

I experienced a lot of side effects of Aspirin, Xanax, Topmax and Propanol the last 10 years, in treatment my Anxiety, Trigeminal Neuralgia & Essential Tremor.

The reason why I will not try to combine any of them with weed anymore, hopping that I can go forward with Weed / Medical Marijuana only without any of them.

By the way, this week I started to feel so bad again and I wrote with difficulty, you may have noticed, there are a change in the way how I write !

I was talking about aspirin, you are talking about combination of all these medicines...
It is hard to experiment and find what suits best for you. Hope that you will find in THC and CBD ease of your pain. The hardest part, that I know you know, is the search for therapy that makes you feel best and works for you. Once you find it everything will be easy..

Hold on man! I'm with you...

Yes, you are right, it is very hard now to find what will work for me, the reason why I will try to stop all of them gradually, hopping I will find the solution, only in Medical Marijuana.

Note, I became allergic to aspirin few days ago.

Thanks for support and nice words.

Any time man, always here to help. Worked with a lot of patients even on psychiatry so I have some basic knowledge...
Aspirin shouldn't be your main therapy, so..is there alternative for now?

For now I get daily:

  • 3000mg CBD
  • Propanol 40mg morning / Trigeminal Neuralgia
  • Topmax 25mg noon / Essential Tremor
  • Xanax 50mg evening / Anxiety

Would be cool if you could cite your sources?

Lord always mentions his sources, this is why we love him...

Great article! Re smoke!

The more i learn about cannabis benefits the more i regret for not becoming a cannabis earlier. But good thing is that i now know the benefits and will remain a smoker for the rest of my life.
