Hello and welcome to e health forum.

Medical marijuana, is not for every one, and can be recommended only by a physician.

Though TMJ pain is very severe, the pain is due to neuropathic pain, and is not helped by use of marijuana.

You might consult your doctor who can examine you and prescribe better pain medications (prescription medications), which will help your pain better.
