Why is it that my pain tolerance is so high that I take Tylenol #3 with codeine , Tylenol #4 with codeine, Norco 5/325, and Oxycocin and still have pain. However with I'll take 2 puffs of CBD in the morning and then about 4 puffs of coconut oil and another oil using a personal hookah stick and will fill better a lot sooner. But get this, none of it makes me high. Is medicinal a lot safer than vapor?
It may be that you have developed a tolerance to narcotics. It is also likely that narcotics are not appropriate for your pain syndrome. For instance, most neuropathic pain (the type people with MS often experience) responds poorly if at all to narcotics, except in dosing that dull mentation and cause sleepiness. We rarely recommend chronic narcotics for pain related to MS and spend a great deal of time weaning new patients off of narcotics. Most feel much better once they are off of narcotics.
