In brief: No.

You need to determine the cause of your back pain.
Remember tolerance to thc d, " is better than eradicating the cause!evelops, and short term benefits will be lost. But your suggestion is essentially asking if "masking the pain.

In brief: Possibly

Marijuana may have benefit.
But consider this: if i gave a med that increases the risk of cancer, heart disease and lung disease while only having variable pain relief, would you take out. Let me add that it affects your memory and will cause you anxiety and depression upon discontinuation. Wouldn't you want an alternative?
