I definitely needed the Percocet at times and also dilauded but that was for pre/post cancer surgery pain and other treatment related pain. I think I mentioned a doctor who refused it post surgery. That was terrible. Ultimately, I just believe that for some people an opiate high is the best thing ever. It’s ok to me but for pleasure or pain I’d rather micro-dose a high THC/CBD strain. A pinch goes a long way in a Flowerpot.
