Yes, some people with incurable illness are in immense pain. Personally, I don't know how they are willing to live with it, but the fact is it does help take away pain, no need to worry about the side effects because many people will not survive long enough to feel the effects of it.
My husband's had ms for 15 years, is in immense pain and totally immobile. He tried it but gave him no relief so he quit it. Wish I could say differently. He puts up with it and is looking forward to the birth of our 1st grandchild in a few months. Seems there are still things to be grateful for.
