    Weed for opiate withdrawal 
    #1
    I have smoked weed at night for 15 years now to relax. I have recently tapered my dose of opiates that I had been taking for a medical condition and have went through some terrible withdrawals My opinion some good green helps HUGE with wd's. Maybe not for everyone but it has helped me.

    Eh, for me, weed is just okay for opiate wds
    It helps me to actually eat something and relaxes
    me for a few hours but then its hell to pay.
    I get REALLY bad RLS. Like.. I even get that
    shit in my arms. Weed makes it 100x worse.
    The only way ill smoke weed during wd is if
    I have a benzo to take after the major effects
    wear off. ... That's just me though.

    I've never gone through opiate withdrawal, but I find weed helps with anything that causes nausea that isn't food poisoning. It helps my menstrual induced nausea big time, and right now because of some bullshit drama happened over the weekend and the anxiety it has caused me, weed got me able to sit through class this morning without throwing up. OP, you don't really specify which aspect of opiate withdrawal you mean --- if it's even the stomach upset type of stuff, I would think that's where weed may not make anything good necessarily, but at least make it less bad.

    Clonidine does work wonders. Definatley
    helps with the chills. I've also found,
    as I'm sure you know, that taking really
    hot baths help with the RLS. Exercise is
    also great if you can make yourself get
    outta bed. Honestly, if it wasn't for the
    RLS wd would almost be tolerable. Almost..

    Well i've never been addicted to opiates, but weed always makes me want a cigarette. I assume it would make me want an opiate if i was addicted to one.

    It's honestly not quiet the same. I've had a harder time ignoring a cig urge than an opiate urge while very high on good MMJ. YMMV

    For me smoking weed is basically a necessity for withdrawal. While it doesn't take away all the symptoms, for me it does let my mind rest a bit and I may even get lost in some thoughts and forget I'm withdrawaling for a couple minutes.

    I'd definitely recommend a potent indica if possible. Or even better baking some edibles with said indica AND smoking too. Of course most people have no idea if they're getting idicas or sativas but if possible go indica for the heavy body relaxation and stone. And baking will give you a stronger/longer high. I know cooking isn't the first thing to come to mind while dope sick, so maybe prepare the food in advance.

    I know the JWH's get a lot of hate from regular cannabis users but if nothing else is available I've found it to work pretty damn good minus the short duration of the high.

    I usually have good indica. And it does provide some relief for me. Also helps me eat. I have lost 75lb over the course of my taper. Hash is the best though IMO.

    For me it helps with minor withdrawals and itching, but with being real sick it doesn't do much but ease the pain and take you somewhere else for a while.

    OP you're probably going to want to have this moved to OD. This is more of an "opiate withdrawal" question than it is a "marijuana" question, you know? OD junkies can lend you a hand.

    It's run it's course here, moving to OD.

    OD Mods, do what you'd like with it.

    Weed always helped me during wd's, especially the nausea and crawling skin sensation. Would also help me sleep somewhat

    Weed
    To me, weed is absolutely essential. It does a great job with stomach nausea and pain. It also takes the edge off a bit and relaxes your muscles. Also, it will help you at least eat something where as you might not eat anything at all w/o it. Plus, if you can get very potent weed it will sedate you pretty well. I wouldn't want to WD w/o it.

    Ganj does very little for my WD's, but it can keep me from puking, which is always good. I tend to find that the best thing (OTC) for me is booze, Lope, and strong Valerin/kava tea.

    good luck.

    Im not trying to become a part of an argument or anything but I believe kokomo said...."dont toke while WD'ing if your family has a history of metnal illness".....in fact...yea, thats what he said...heres the quote...

    That should clear things up. I dont think he meant that EVERYONE shouldnt toke while wd'ing, just people at risk for serious mental problems.
