Dirkdiggler, I know that everyone's different but I found that cannabis in any form was way better than any meds the doctor ever put me on. When I was having a bad day with cramps I was always amazed at how quickly the cramps subsided and my whole body relaxed, literally within 10 mins of having a pipe or joint. One thing I will advise is if you smoke tobacco with your green you will not get the full benefit, tobacco irritates the gut considerably.
As Cambium has said you get far more benefit from edibles but smoking still dose an amazing job. I found it never truly rid me of all pain, but then again neither has any pain killers from the docs, where the herb truly came into its own was distracting the mind from the agony and discomfort that they body was in.
Best of luck and health to you mate
e2a: thank you Arnold, I know that you understand more than most what its like to live with serious long term health problems. Your posts on living with chronic pain have helped me on more than one occasion mate
