Marinol For Fibromyalgia
I have been treated for fibromyalgia and degenerative joint and disc disease for years. Is marinol effective for chronic pain? I am very leery of opioids.

Marijuana better!: The cannabis plant contains over 100 different medically-active cannaboids, whereas Marinol is a synthetic version of the most prominent cannaboid, thc. Thc makes people "stoned" & can help with pain & nausea, but many of the medical benefits of marijuana come from other cannaboids like cannabadiol, that do not make one stoned! Most who try both feel the whole plant works much better. See comment:. ...Read more
