MARIJUANA and rubbing alcohol

Post by Jim W on Tue Oct 02, 2012 5:26 pm

Smokealot Closest thing to smokin! My wife slipped and fell a couple weeks ago....huge bruise and pain! Our housekeeper to the rescue, shows up the next day with a bag of fresh marijuana leaves, packs them into a half bottle of rubbing alcohol, says marinate for 48 hours. Then rub on the affected area! Results were amazing! Apparently this concoction is great for sore joints, etc. Who'd a thunk....rubbin, not smokin!

Does this belong under medical? LMAO

Mexicans have been using that for arthritis and joint/muscle pain for centuries.

I have one similar potion made by a friend's gardener that contains alcohol, MJ and peyote. Works so well, I soak a cloth in it and put on the aching joint and in 20 minutes I can't even feel my skin.

Jim: it is a generally accepted fact that lotions, potions and drugs might work for one person and not for others. I had a chiropractor for many years that preached masking pain slows the healing process because the body doesn't know that it needs to heal itself when the pain isn't there. Now, he fully conceded that some pain is so severe that one cannot ignore it and in those cases, he felt that just taking enough pain killer to knock the pain down to a tolerable level still triggered those same natural healing powers.

Just sayin!

Friend gave me a mixture of peyote and Vick's (vapo-rub). Heavy on the peyote and Vick's to cover the smell and as a base. Hips are my problem and hard to cover that much ground ... but seems to help and I smell different. Not attractive possibly

MJ does have lots of uses other than smoking. You
won't get high off the alcohol and MJ. MJ has to be
heated to activate the THC which is the thing that
buzzes you. Eating it raw won't do anything either
thus folks make MJ brownies. MJ also has a non
high variety that was used to make fine quality
paper in the old days or cloth nowadays. It grows
along the side of the road all over upstate NY. Alas
smoke all you want it won't get you high. It also
makes good rope. Remember hemp rope? Last but
not least I think you will find the US founding fathers
used hemp paper to write our founding documents. It
has many medical uses like a sleep aid (Be sure to
get the right variety if you want to use it this way as
one variety will keep you awake the other will make
you sleep) and I gave it to my father when he was dying
of Cancer to stimulate his appetite during chemo. The
government has one thing right about MJ and that is it
is a powerful drug however it is also one of the safest.
If you have lung problems don't smoke it but make MJ
cookies or use a new technology called a vaporizer.

Hey be careful with that Peyote or you will start talking to the crows.
Remember Carlos C. books??

Hey does anybody know why they add the peyote to the potion??
I have never heard of peyote being a remedy. Whats it suppose
to do in a medical sense?

Anesthetics

Bill Ellis

Anesthetics are medicines that cause loss of feeling or consciousness.

Pre-contact doctors used anesthetics for bone fractures, gout and rheumatism. American Indians used them for surgery as early as 100 BC. Some of the anesthetics used by Indian doctors are coca, peyote and datura - Jimson weed.

Cocoa was used both as an internal and external medicine. The Inca used cocoa as an external medicine in the form of a poultice. To use coca as an internal medicine, Inca doctors had their patients eat coca before surgery. Whites did not discover the anesthetic property of cocoa until 1884. Soon after, cocoa became popular with doctors.

The Aztec used peyote long before contact. A lotion was made of the peyote root for sore feet and headaches. Peyote can reduce fever if taken internally. Indians also used to ease the pain of open wounds, snakebites and broken bones with peyote. US Army doctors used peyote as a painkiller until 1800.

Indians in Virginia used Jimson weed. Prior to the 1800s, non-Indian doctors did not have good anesthetics. European doctors before 1847 used high does of opium or alcohol. Sometimes this killed the patient.

Folks, please don't do this at home.

These Indian doctors were highly trained specialists. They did not prescribe medicine until they were in their 30s.

I don't have the formula (or the MJ or peyote). Only use the stuff. I would be afraid to drink it - might go blind like with bad moonshine! Beer

You can buy something like you are describing called peyote cream which is sold in all the local natural meds stores and tianguis. It smells like horse linament but I also use it for joint pain. It sort of smells like Vicks and horse linament.

I never heard of it for pain either but bought the gardener's stuff and it works plus there is the peyote cream sold locally in a lot of stores I mention above. And yes I read Carlos Castenada, but I don't soar like an eagle when I use it - just takes away the pain.
