It’s worth noting that this has little to do with teeth, CMT is a neurological disease and one of the discoverers was named, I guess, Dr. Tooth.

My dad has it, he was not impressed when the receptionist at the doctortold him that he'll need to go see a dentist instead.

I was friends with Charcot Marie. Really a sweet woman. She had summer teeth. Summer here, summer there.

Some day I’d like to see if there is a difference between feeling less pain, or is the same amount of pain less of an immediate problem. Both are good.

Dealing with chronic pain, I can tell you that opiates cause me to still feel the pain but not care as much, but also make me completely couch-locked. Medical MJ provides the same sort of disassociation from the pain, but still leave me the ability to do the dishes.

Been smoking/vaping since forever, and when I have had pain, have definitely found the pain less important. Might help with a marijuana/pain study if they followed the “How much does it hurt?” question with the “How big of a problem is it?” Then administer the pot and ask again.

I have a family member with CMT. She used to use cannabis for pain, but stopped. I think the psychoactive negatives were not worth it at that time. But CMT is progressive, as is the pain. Maybe it's time for a second look?

There are strains of cannabis now with more of the pain relief aspect and less psychoactivity. I think it's definitely worth another look.

My sister has CMT. Sometimes called sharky foot because the bones break so easily. She wants broke her ankle just stepping off a curb.

I was injured, and became addicted to opioids for 15 years. I quit 5 years ago and now use medical cannabis. I will never be, and don't expect to be, pain free but I only sought an acceptable level of pain. That is what I get from it.

I'd love to see a study done on each specific terepene at concentrated doses.
