> In the meantime, if you don't wish to inhale, you might want to investigate the cannabis analog Nabalone that was developed several years ago by the Eli Lilly Co. It is commonly prescribed to cancer patients to alleviate symptoms of nausea and evidently does not produce the euphoria that is common to marijuana. However I would strongly urge you seek the counsel of your attending physician in assessing whether or not this is a viable option for you . I honestly cannot advise you about this one way or the other since I completely lack any medical knowledge.

James here...

The only problem with Maranol and others is that THC is the only thing in pot studided and Pot has many unknown substances. I know a number of AIDS people who have tried Marinol and find it to be not like pot and prefer pot (smoked) because it improves mood and the most important issue, nausea
hunger, ect. It seems really silly to give someone a "Pot Pill" when they can't keep anything down, esp when ypou can just smoke it, avoiding the GI totally.

I smoke pot from time to time and my doc knows. If I am doing well mentally it is enjoyable but
I have learned if I am in a depression I can start me continually mulling over the same depressive thoughts.

I feel the biggest problem with pot is it legal status. Other than that moderation is the key. Excessive pot smoking will leave you apethitic all the time.
