Hemp Seed Oil Side Effects? Medical Marijuana Scam?


I didn’t post the last couple days because I’ve been sick. At first I thought I was having an adverse reaction to hemp seed oil, which I decided to try for the first time Friday. I was hoping it would help my chronic pain issues, but within a few hours of taking it, I developed a horrible headache (almost migraine level) and then became really nauseated and felt like throwing up all night.

However, yesterday I made sure not to take the oil again and I still had a rough day with nausea and other stomach issues, so I’m not sure if an adverse reaction could last that long or if maybe I just had a stomach bug or something. I hope it wasn’t the hemp seed oil, because if that makes me sick, I would worry that medical marijuana might do the same, which I am still hoping to try if I can get my Ohio prescription card.

The really sucky thing about Ohio’s medical marijuana program is that they only approve certain doctors to prescribe it and it sounds like you have to go through certain organizations to get approved….organizations that do NOT take any kind of insurance and charge a couple hundred bucks just for your first visit. Almost seems like a scam in some ways. I’m doubting you can use insurance on the prescriptions themselves with a system like that, but I’m not sure. So honestly, I don’t know if I can afford medical marijuana 😦

As for my possible adverse reaction, I think it worries me even more because my mom always told me that she could never smoke weed because it gave her migraines and made her physically ill. I was hoping I didn’t inherit whatever it is that caused that reaction in her, but now I’m worried maybe I did. It would suck to spend all that money on a medical marijuana card and then find out it made me feel worse.

  1. Hey, I am sorry for the way you feel.
    Haven’t you tried like medication drugs? Tablets… try to go to a doctor who can see the issue you are facing.
    In our country Marijuana treatment is not even allowed, it is very bad seen actually.
    I wish you all the best and may you heal soon! 🙂


    1. Sorry for the late reply, just saw this comment today. I do take other drugs for pain right now, chiefly among them muscle relaxers, NSAIDS, Tramadol, and Lidocaine. If marijuana would help, it would be preferable to opioids because opioids have so many bad side effects and are so addictive.


    1. Yeah, maybe it isn’t the “cure all” some people make it out to be. I am allergic to many, many plants, so I worried a bit about that anyhow. If I can afford to, I still might give it a try, but it would suck to pay all that out of pocket and then not be able to tolerate it 😦


  2. That sounds like an awful feeling no matter what caused it. 😦 Hoping you can find relief and the card wasn’t for not. I was giving my dog CBD for a while but found something else more helpful. It’s a miracle drug for some but certainly doesn’t work for everyone. Also if you have the MTHFR mutation I’ve read it can affect the way your body metabolizes it.
