Morphine relieves pain. THC gets you high as a kite. Combine them together and what do you get? A drug that relieves pain but also gets you high as a kite. Joseph Holtman and Peter Crooks at the University of Kentucky College of Medicine in Lexington, Kentucky have taken the initiative by working on a practical application further proving marijuana’s potential as a powerful medicine.
They’ve come up with a profound solution to decreasing morphine doses thus reducing risk of dependency and addiction. Their solution: put some weed in it. It turns out that the psychoactive drug in marijuana, THC, enhances the painkilling effects of opioids such as morphine. This is good news for those in pain for any number of reasons or hemp necklace wearing stoners who smoke the peace pipe.
