My Mom once told me that there is a reason why they name it a medical practice.
- At the time, I got the general gist that all medical professionals aren’t perfect.
However, there is even more meaning to that phrase from long ago as I am confronting chronic inflammation. What I thought was just a simple sprained knee turned into an inflammatory condition that nearly tore me up. I went from a healthy active man to barely able to walk. Medical marijuana is helping me claw back a life that I can live with. The medical professionals were as puzzled as I was as the inflammation spread across our body as well as the pain got worse. I could hardly do anything. The only joy I got from life was sleeping and food. And even sleeping wasn’t happening without involving meds. The whole thing finally just seemed like one immense horrible cycle so my friend convinced me to investigate cannabis information. From there, with the help of a friend, I cut through the red tape to satisfy the marijuana regulations in order to get to the cannabis dispensary. I am glad to say it was well worth the effort. For me, the medical marijuana benefits came quickly. I had more range of motion as well as less pain than before. The reduced pain motivated me to improve our diet as well as exercise. Plus, I was now sleeping through the night without all the meds. In fact, the pain relief with medical marijuana is so great that I hardly ever turn to a heavy pain killer. Life looks possible again for me. And I won’t be taking that improvement for granted. With medical cannabis treatments, I may not be cured but I get to be more like my old self.
